run


i'll sing it one last time for you
then we really have to go
you've been the only thing that's right
in all i've done

and i can barely look at you
but every single time i do
i know we'll make it anywhere
away from here

light up, light up
as if you have a choice
even if you cannot hear my voice
i'll be right beside you dear

louder louder
and we'll run for our lives
i can hardly speak i understand
why you can't raise your voice to say

to think i might not see those eyes
makes it so hard not to cry
and as we say our long goodbye
i nearly do

light up, light up
as if you have a choice
even if you cannot hear my voice
i'll be right beside you dear

louder louder
and we'll run for our lives
i can hardly speak i understand
why you can't raise your voice to say

slower slower
we don't have time for that
all i want is to find an easier way
to get out of our little heads

have heart my dear
we're bound to be afraid
even if it's just for a few days
making up for all this mess

light up, light up
as if you have a choice
even if you cannot hear, my voice
i'll be right beside you, dear

firelight

firelight, firelight, fire little, firelight

we won't get much sleep

reaching out to touch
more than i should have
love my simple life
i will stay right here

making enemies

we're just waiting for our man
to come through with a plan
of how the hell we turn this round
and dig ourselves out of the ground
we don't really want to know
the things you claim to know
it could fall around our ears

might not hurt for years and years

ask me how i am

has nobody asked you how you are
you look like you might not last the day
i wouldn't have made it very far
so we'd make a good team right away
i've not made amends for yesterday
my lip won't get me out of it
waking up dreading hearing tales
of all of my nightmares being true

i take a breath and grab the phone
secretly hoping you're not home
i'd leave a message i was out
out of my mind on drink and drugs

never gonna fall in love

something snapped me out of a dream
that i was having
i'd fallen down an elevator shaft
but now i'm back again
tidying up after the fight we had

happy with yourself
well you've never looked so satisfied
teasing me with stuff like a spoilt little brother
you finished yet?
have you got what you really want?

velocity girl

oh velocity girl
what makes you go so fast
is it the speed you're taking
since you gave up the drinking
oh velocity girl
i can't keep up with you
can't stand to be alone
think you should be with me
just want to stay here in your arms
oh velocity girl
try harder to stay put
understand me when i say
please don't leave today
oh velocity girl
i don't know what i'm thinking
since i gave up the drinking
please just stay with me
just want to stay here in your arms
oh velocity girl
can i touch your hand
can i move it here
don't you understand?
just want to stay here in your arms
just want to stay here in your arms
just want to stay here in your arms
just want to stay here in your arms

same

maybe somewhere else
will not be half as cold as me
the curtains drawn the winter sun
makes patterns on your face
it looks like some kaleidoscopic breathing exercise

it's the same
it's the same
it's the same
baby wont you breathe
baby wont you breathe

hold me in your freezin' arms
before we have to go.
i wince a little, but it's not because i know the truth
the windshield of your little car is frosted through the glass
a clear heart of air appears as we shiver on the seats

it's the same(it's the same, the same)
it's the same
it's the same


it's the same(it's the same, the same)
it's the same
it's the same

treat it as a test
treat it as a test
baby wont you breathe
baby wont you breathe
it's the same
it's the same
it's the same

it's the same (it's the same, the same)
it's the same
it's the same

somewhere a clock is ticking

i've got this feeling that there's something that i missed
(i could do most anything to you...)
don't you breathe
don't you breathe
(i could do most anything to you...)

something happened, that i never understood
(i could do most anything to you...)
you can't leave
you can't leave
(i could do most anything to you...)

every second, dripping off my fingertips
(i could do most anything to you...)
wage your war
wage your war
(i could do most anything to you...)

another soldier, says he's not afraid to die
(i could do most anything to you...)
well i am scared
i'm so scared
(i could do most anything to you...)

in slow motion, the blast is beautiful
(i could do most anything to you...)
doors slam shut
doors slam shut
(i could do most anything to you...)

a clock is ticking, but it's hidden far away
(i could do most anything to you...)
safe and sound
safe and sound

(i could do most anything to you...)

tiny little fractures

is there a place i can go
is there a light to get me there
if i've forgotten what to say
it's because all words are dust
if this is really what you think
how come you won't look me in the eye
all this crying in your sleep
as i lie awake beside

is there a t-shirt i can wear
coz i am soaking look at me
what do you mean i don't love you
i am standing here, aren't i
maybe you thought of it first
maybe i get all the praise
is there a place i can go
is there a light to get me there

ways and means


getting too busy to make amends
i should try to make it right
are you ready for the shit to hit
i think you say you are but aren't
doctor make it better instantly
you're the only one who can
i've been waiting here my whole damn life
and i've forgotten what i wanted

maybe i can do it
if i put my back into it
i can leave you if i wanted
but there's nowhere else that i can go

maybe i won't suffer
if i find a way to love her
i'd be lying to myself
but there is no way out that i can see

if i lied you'd know it instantly
so i just had to look away
all the honesty i've ever lost
i can't begin to even curse
i never knew the taste of blood till now
it's clear i never should have known
breathing fire was never this much fun
so there's a dark side in us all

maybe i can do it
if i put my back into it
i can leave you if i wanted
but there's nowhere else that i can go

maybe i won't suffer
if i find a way to love her
i'd be lying to myself
but there is no way out that i can see

grazed knees


i'm trying not to stir, it's too late
my blanket's over there, i feel like
i'm broken and i'm colder than hell
i should've said i'd not come back here

your breakfast will get cold
i really have to go

it's easier to lie and be safe
time and time again i'm half stalled
one giant leap of faith is easy
when everyone you ask is so sure

just give a second thought
what if we don't get caught

just say you love me now
and forget this whole row
just save your energy
for making up with me

chocolate


this could be the very minute
i'm aware i'm alive
all these places feel like home

with a name i'd never chosen
i can make my first steps
as a child of 25

this is the straw, final straw in the
roof of my mouth falls as i lie to you
just because i'm sorry doesn't mean
i didn't enjoy it at the time

you're the only thing that i love
it scares me more every day
on my knees i think clearer

goodness knows i saw it coming
or at least i'll claim i did
but in truth i'm lost for words

what have i done it's too late for that
what have i become, truth is nothing yet
a simple mistake starts the hardest time
i promise i'll do anything you ask...this time

spitting games


oooooooooooooooo, oooooooooooooooo
i broke into your house last night
and left a note at your bedside
i'm far too shy to speak to you at school
you leave me numb and i'm not sure why

oooooooooooooooo, oooooooooooooooo

i find it easier to sit and stare
than push my limbs out towards you right there
my heart is bursting in your perfect eyes
as blue as oceans and as pure as skies

i struggle for the words and then give up
my head's up with the birds on the t-hut.
a little peace of mind and i'm no better
than the plain disgrace of all my letters

oooooooooooooooo, oooooooooooooooo

and after that the floodgates opened up
and i fell in love with everyone i saw
please take your time i'm not in any rush
and it's in everything i ever write

it's not as if i need the extra weight
confused enough by life so thanks a lot
lonely written words for company
just raise the roof this once and follow me

oooooooooooooooo, oooooooooooooooo

i struggle for the words and then give up
my head's up with the birds on the t-hut.
a little peace of mind and i'm no better
than the plain disgrace of all my letters

whatever's left


it's a feeling i've had many times before
i can't hold the fort so don't give me more
i struggle and sweat when i'm wide awake
when i know i'm fine, i'm not used to fine

it's the same thing again
but it could become a problem if
we don't deal with it now
and you blast off in another rant
i've not opened my mouth
can you read my mind so easily
as the madness sets in

you must know that i'll follow you

a sudden movement and a broken limb
the patches are there to show where i'm hit
my fault is it now well that's news to me
curled and joyless we try once again

it's the same thing again
but it could become a problem if
we don't deal with it now
and you blast off in another rant
i've not opened my mouth
can you read my mind so easily
as the madness sets in

you must know that i'll follow you

gleaming auction


i'll get tired of the heart attacks
every time it rings
i'll put myself on the waiting list
and get it all cleared up
you're the one with the attitude
don't try and make me out
to be the root of the evil in
the whole rotten affair

lie back and suffer now
we've both earned our reward

buried deep in the telegram
i'm sure i never got
was any clue of the whereabouts
of all the things i'd lost
just because you were right before
doesn't mean you're right
to make up now would just vindicate
every doubt i had

it's not as simple as
how much you think you care
you would never know
when to take the hint
broken glass aside
my feelings stay the same
covered head to toe
in blood and fear and spite

wow

don't be scared of anything at all
everything we have is all we need
all the spotlights streaming into angry skies
means there's no one watching as we leave

say the first thing that
comes into your head when you see me
if it looks like it works and it feels like it works
then it works
with the sun on your face
all these worries will soon disappear
just follow me now
just follow me now

i find careful patterns in the snow
it seems you did come around but changed your mind
if you'd just take ten more steps to me
i won't ever ask you again

just because i couldn't say doesn't make me a liar
i noticed a change in the tone of your voice
it's so clear
my role in this mess
is not something that i can be proud of
but it's all going to change
yes it's all going to change
(all going to change)
(yes it's all going to change)
(it's all going to change)
(yes it's all going to change)

say the first thing that
comes into your head when you see me
if it looks like it works and it feels like it works
then it works
with the sun on your face
all these worries will soon disappear
just follow me now
just follow me now

how to be dead

please don't go crazy, if i tell you the truth
no you don't know what happened
and you never will if
you don't listen to me while i talk to the wall
this blanket is freezing, it's been out in the hall
where you've had me for hours
still i'm sure what i want
but darling i want the same thing that i wanted before
so sweetheart tell me what's up i won't stop no way

please keep your hands down
and stop raising your voice
it's hardly what i'd be doing if you gave me a choice
it's a simple suggestion can you give me some time
so just say yes or no
why can't you shoulder the blame
'cause both my shoulders are heavy
from the weight of us both
you're a big boy now so let's not talk about growth
you've not heard a single word i have said...
oh, my god

please take it easy it can't all be my fault
i haven't made half the mistakes
that you've listed so far
oh baby let me explain something
it's all down to drugs
at least i remember taking them and not a lot else
it seems i've stepped over lines
you've drawn again and again
but if the ecstacy's in, heroin is definitely out
dr. jekyll is wrestling hyde for my pride
