Lyrics

The River [Single]

Sailing down, down the Styx again
Without you my love, I want to return but then
I see all my friends, they want me to join but then
They all melt away, without you alone

And the river's running through my veins
Lately she don't seem the same
And the blood keeps calling out my name

I pass by the sins, left by a different man
The tides brought them here
Cast by a different hand
And the wisps of the winds
Blow with the Styx again
Pushing me on, without you alone

My will must be strong, to rise with a different life
My will must be long, I'm still pushing for different heights
And the wisps of the winds
Blow down the Styx again
The river runs red
And I'm left alone


Midsummer Day [Radio Single]

When you've decided to hold on to all that you've lost
All this is nothing if she comes and tears you apart
All this is nothing if you hold the key to her heart
If you've decided to change what you thought was your way
This new way will take you to her and to midsummer day
All this is nothing if she comes and tears you apart
All this is nothing if you hold the key to her heart

And I'm crying in the night
I'm waiting for her call
Will you help me girl tonight
I'm waiting for her call
And I'm crying in the night
While she's flowing from my mind
And the sky is turning black

And I'm running out of time

You'll shed a last tear if you miss your road on the way
This new way will take you to her and to midsummer day
All this is nothing if she comes and tears you apart
All this is nothing if you hold the key to her heart

All you are is in you


A Certain Slant of Light [Single]

As the colours fade away my love
As the darkness turns to day above
Celebrate the one you love

And she says she has a friend inside
Who shows her everything she tries to hide
Please stop the pain inside

She don't know
Please stop her pain
I think she's coming down again
I hear the rain
She's coming down again
I hear the rain

And she's dancing with the hands of fate
While she's sleeping with the on she hates
And tonight they celebrate


Winter Solstice (Instrumental)

Save Me [Radio Single]

I must leave you tonight my love
Remain so faithfully
I must go off to war my dear
The kings await me
I will go so far away
I will always love you
But you knew

I regret to tell you
Your man has died tonight
He was a brave man
He fought a brave fight
He was killed by the other side
He was killed by the other men's knives
She said save me

Why must you love this man
He is your brother This is easy to understand my son
There is no other
I cannot pretend to love this man
Like my father
I cannot pretend
Mother there is no other

When there is no truth
Let's end this lie tonight
This is easy to understand
Without your best fight
But I see a new sun
Rising in the east
She said save me
Save you


Sun Going Down

(I woke up this morning
Someone was knocking at my door
And I said hello sweet Satan
I believe it's time to go)

Thirteenth apostle knocking at my door
Telling me that I can't play with you no more
I guess the wages of sin now couldn't buy my meals
Screaming out your name babe, how does that feel

Feeling through the outdoor all throughout the night
Waiting for the doctor to come and make me right
Feeling from the bedside, I've lost all appeal
To stay with you baby
Baby how does that, baby how does that feel?

Sun's going down

Sing throughout the streets babe
And you sing throughout the night
You go and tell the people
People my soul is aflight
I guess the wages of sin now, yeah they couldn't buy my meals
I'm screaming out your name baby, how does that feel (it feels good)

Thirteenth apostle knocking at my door
Telling me that I can't, I can't play with you no more
I guess the wages of sin now, they couldn't buy my meals
I'm screaming out your name girl, baby how does that
Now honey how does that feel

Sun's going down

Looked at the heavens above and I said a little prayer
As if the heavens above would even care
I said "Jesus, won't you meet me in the middle of the air?"
I think my wings are falling below, Jesus, I need another pair
Jesus won't you meet me in the middle of the air
I think my wings are falling below I need another pair

St. Peter at the gates of heaven-baby won't you let me in, let me in
St. Peter at the gates of heaven-honey won't you let me in, let me in
I said now Peter, listen Peter, come on Peter
Won't you let me in!
Right now!

Yeah the sun was going down.


In This Time [Aust. Radio Single]

Hey lady looks like I'm under your spell once again
Hey lady there just now ain't no denying these things

I will always be here
I will always be with you

And I know she's said
Let the leaves fall wherever they may
But I find it hard
Hard to find people like she is today

I will always be here
I will always be with you

When you lay to sleep
Tell me the visions you see in the night
When you turn around
What kind of shadow is cast by the light

She will always be here
She will always be with you
In this time


Dreams of Reason

Oh how the paths change
When the wisdom fades away
Something's going to change these times
And we'll watch them fade away

Never going to get it back
And that's what they say
When I've promised to change my ways
And we've all had these days

I can feel her
In the insides of these rooms
Something's going to change these times
And we'll watch them fade away

I really need your love
I've got to have all your love
It's cold outside
I'm trying to hide
I really need your love


Raven Skies

I am walking on
To the place of the light
And the things I see
With the starlight sight
In the dance of the fires
In the flames I see
Under raven skies
She will sleep with me

And I need her now
And I need you

Welcome to my garden
And what do you see
Welcome to my garden
Do you still see me

I am looking through
Through the dance of the trees
I experience
What a Shaman sees
I've returned within
I've returned with sight
Under raven skies
I will sleep tonight


Haze On the Hills (Instrumental)


The Majestic Song

With a thought
You could change what you've never really known
With a lie
You can take from the love they never showed
Come along
Come along now it's not too far away

And the streams
They are running to an ocean that is dry
And the sands
Of the ocean are the prophets in the eye
Of the sage
Who has chosen to forfeit all he knows
I know

And you know now that somethings never change
In a world that seems bound by human pain
Come along now it's not too far away
I know

And beyond
You will see how the ever changing glow
It surrounds
All the feelings you never thought you'd know
Come along
Come along now it's not too far away
I know

the edges of twilight

Fire in the Head [Single]

You stay
Silent, knowing, always in time
See how this love stays divine
Sleep here
Hoping, knowing, always in time
See how this love stays divine

And I'm waiting
When I return to her I find
I'm waiting
Flowers of evil in my mind
And I'm waiting
Dancing with fire on the edge
I'm waiting
Remembering all of what she said
And I'm waiting
Hoping the rains will wash away
I'm waiting
Hoping a guide will show the way
And I'm waiting
Dancing with fire on the edge
I'm waiting
Remembering all of what she said
With this fire in the head


The Bazaar [Radio Single]

Silence swimming in a pool of dreams
Beneath its depths the forgotten streams
Above, the city of the evening star
Behind its walls, the grand bazaar
As she walks through its endless maze
Cursing those who mistrust her ways
Please my friend no matter what she sees
Tell my lover come back to me

Doorways spilling out their somber light
Casting shadows that will raid the night
Along the alleys of her ruling fears
Walk the visions that will cause her tears
Lying still as she wills her glance
Through the eyes of a charmer's trance
Please my friend no matter what she sees
Tell my lover come back to me

And on the walls
Shadows play
Twilight souls
Anguished ways
Lost adrift
Severed seas
I await you
Come to me


Correspondences

Hope springs to life
Charmed by approaching listlessness
Hands reaching out
To grasp the open emptiness

Leading me down....

And this goodbye
Faced with hope and countenance
Souls slip away
To bask in glowing radiance

Leading me down....

As we run from the sun
And we harbour the lies
And we leave things undone
As we cover our eyes

Does it tear you apart my love
Does it tear you apart my love
It tears me apart

Charmed by this light
This sombre guidance in her eyes
Rage would entice
And final moments would arise

Leading me down...

Does it tear you apart my love
Does it tear you apart my love
It tears me apart


The Badger (Instrumental)

Silence

Silent spirit walks before me
With her beauty and with her eyes
Heaven help me
I feel I'm fading
I should rest here
For a while

In the dreamtime I'm awakened
As my senses seize the night
Heaven help me
I'm forsaken
I should rest here
For a while
And lie in the bed you've made ophelia
Dry are the lips that lost their taste of love
Drown in the waters that would give you life
Cry as this lamentation thrusts its knife

In silence
In silence
SILENCE


Sister Awake [Radio Single]

When the winter was over
She returned there to find him
And her memories filled her with light

She remembered the beauty
She remembered desires
And her memories filled her with light

I am the sun in the flame
Cold from the flame turns away
And in these winds came a change
She awakes...

Sister walk through these fields of delight
But I want you to know
Desperation's the tenderest trap
So gently you go
What will it take
Sister awake

When this beautiful cult of desire
Has left you for dead
Isolation will cradle the lies
Of things left unsaid
What will it take
Sister awake

And you'll look to the heavens above
And taste it's deceit
These temptations have blinded desires
To sleep at their feet
What will it take
Sister awake

And you'll hear them call out your name
Invoking the fates
Chances are you've travelled too far
In stirring their hate
What will it take
Sister awake
Awake


Turn the Lamp Down Low

Turn the lamp down low
Shelter me
Turn the lamp down low
Rising up to see
Please don't go

Do you feel the flame that's burning
As the candle dies
Do you see the spirits stirring
As you close your eyes
Do you sense the slow advancement
As the twilight thins
Do you see the serpent dancing
As it sheds its skin

Turn the lamp down low
Please don't go

Does the sun renounce it's kingdom
As the shadows fall
Does a fool rejoice in wisdom
When the raven calls
Do you embrace the dancing clayman
As he tears your flesh
Do you hear the souls screaming
In the serpent's mesh

Turn the lamp down low
Please don't go

Do you need the consolation
Of a dead man's hand
As the tears of desolation
Flood a dead man's land
Do you seek your soul's redemption
Under fervent skies
Don't you see your own reflection
In the serpent's eye


Shadows on the Mountainside [Aust. Radio Single]

We are spirits passing through the doors of time
With an invitation heard before we find
Shadows on the mountainside
Eagles find the souls they hide

And the outcast child enchanted by the sun
Will he seek his shelter never knowing one
Shadows on the mountainside
Eagles find the souls they hide

Shadows on the mountainside
Cover me with sleep
Because I need it now

And the red rivers flow to seas
And she will return to me
And then all that I am is in her hands
And I will return to her and then
I begin


Drawing Down the Moon

Holding on
Once again
Take the time to look around
Is it all in vain
Can't you see
Stay with me

I need you now
To stop the rains
But you want to know how it feels
Until you have felt the same
Stay with me
Can't you see

Don't let me down
Stay with me
Don't leave me now
Stay with me
When darkness descends it's all you see
Don't let me down
Stay with me

She's drawing down the moon
I can see it in her eyes
I think it's too soon
I think she's going to cry
She's drawing down the moon
I think it's too soon
Can't she hear me when I say

Don't let me down
Stay with me
Don't leave me now
Stay with me
When darkness descends it's all you see
Don't let me down
Stay with me


Inanna [U.K Radio Single]

Over the skies and sea my love
Over the sky and sea
Riding the crest of winds above
Bringing her back to me

Into the starlit sea my love
Into the moonlit sea
Riding the crest of winds above
I'm begging you stay with me

Would you walk ten miles with me my love
Would you walk the skies with me
Would you walk ten miles with me my love
Inanna


Coming Home

When frightened by change
Serenity clings to my sleep
And wonders remain
Their world will inherit it's meek
And wicked's the taste
You feel when the mysteries arise
I've fallen from grace
Because of her treacherous eyes

You don't know
So alone
I'm coming home

And beauty's disdain
Attends to these virtuous lies
She tries to restrain
The ardent and amorous eyes
And wicked's the taste
You feel when mysteries arise
I've fallen from grace
Because of her treacherous eyes

You don't know
So alone
I'm coming home


Walk With Me

Tell me lady, shining sun
To feel the warmth that's come undone
Do you sleep in sympathy
And if it's true
Walk with me

All of the while you were here
All of the while you were near

In the twilight the idols speak
And in the twilight you'll always seek
A sentimental forgotten friend
Who will always love you
Until the end

All of the while you were here
All of the while you were near

And now you search for the ideals
You'll find a vice that always heals
The open wounds, the bleeding hearts
Yet still they'll say
You're torn apart

All of the while you were here
All of the while you were near

Come on lady walk with me
Come on lady talk with me
Can't you see I'm all alone
This loneliness I can't condone
Come on lady hold my hand
Take me to your shadowland
Sleep awhile in sympathy
Come on lady walk with me


The Edges of Twilight (hidden track)

As you draw near
I hear the mutter of the worried earth
The joyous girl, the crystal clear
Deliver us of our poor hearts from naked fear
As you draw near

As you draw near
I feel the goddess, her celestial birth
The fullness of a love so real
The twilight of the god in me glows in my tear
As we draw near

Temptation [Single]

Driven by restrained desire
I want what I need
Shaking as her sex takes hold
I've lost all control

Drowning in a sea of rage
I taste the embrace
Helpless as it steals my soul
I've lost all control

We exist in a world where the fear of illusion is real
And we cling to the past to deny and confuse the ideal
Once inside, we conceive and believe in a god we can't feel

Destined by a fate so cruel
And drugged to delight
I'm laughing as the lies unfold
I've lost all control

Temptation
It never lets me down
Temptation
One foot in the ground
Temptation
You satisfy my soul
Temptation
I've lost all control


Army Ants

Bring on the absolute
A walk on the water
Can lead you to slaughter

No one will feel you
No one will hear you

Bring on the brave new world
Tied to condition
A slave to submission

All that I need
Is a way to deceive
The eyes of the end
I will rise once again
And still shine on

Crawl on your hands and knees
Blind from the vision
The dawn of decision


Psychopomp [Radio Single]

You wanted this
So sad to see
The sweet decay
Of ecstacy

And you want it all

A frozen sun
Will guide you there
As shadows hide
The deep despair

I'll give you something more
And you'll fade away
One last kiss before
You fade away

So sleep tonight
In idle dreams
The pain will drown
Your silent screams

And you want it all

I'll give you something more
And you'll fade away
One last kiss before
You fade away
Lives you once adored
Will fade away
Lies you can't ignore
You soon repay
As you fade away


Gyroscope [Aust. Radio Single]

Come face to face with it
Pushed on your side
Lose all your self control
Worlds will collide

Inside out, you can't cope
My gyroscope

Witness the fall from grace
You shed your skin
Change if it pleases you
Just don't give in

Inside out, you can't cope
My gyroscope
Quiet now she said
You're waking up the dead
I cradle the excuse
In love with the abuse
I handle it with ease
It's a dignified disease
Slow down

Soul searching breaks you down
You'll never learn
Annihilate yourself
All things must burn

Inside out, you can't cope
My gyroscope


Alarum

I took a slide, slipping down a staircase
A piranesian dream
My senses reeled, distorted by the darkness
I lit my way with a scream
And in the rave an alarum caused a cracked mirror
I got confused by the sound
I turned around and touched it from a distance
And then it fell to the ground

Loud cry from the shallows
Lust feeds on the fear
Walls crack under pressure
I think the end is getting near

And in my mind was the fury of a madness
That consecrated the dirt
I stumbled through the enigma of the reason
And celebrated the hurt
And then I found through an act of desperation
A subtle rip in the heart
I was seduced by the fear of devastation
And then it tore me apart

Oh no, nothing matters
When it takes me
When it rapes me, breaks me
Shakes me down

A quick escape from the edge of commination
I slept the night with my spleen
A vain excuse, I was searching for some answers
I broke away from the scene
Because after all animility's an instinct
And it's Luxuria's slave
To taste the truth, it's a seizure of the senses
And it's a foot in the grave


Release [Single]

I want the world to wake
I want to give you peace
I want to vindicate
You need to be released

Don't want to hurt you
I need to make you see
If I desert you
It's just to make you see

That I'm a man that's weak
And I'm a man that's lost
I gave it all away
To complicate the cost

Don't want to hurt you
I need to make you see
If I desert you
It's just to make you see
I'm not going to hurt you now
I need to make you see
If I desert you now
It's just to make you see

I want you to be free
I want you to be free from me


Transmission


We fear what we see in the distance
We're shattered by life's soft deceit
Enslaved to our thoughts by our reason
Refusing to walk with the weak

Betrayed by the past's desolation
We slept listless nights by the shore
Searching for signs of salvation
Hoping to find something more

Tell me what I have when it all slips away
Tell me what I see when the light fades away
Tell me what I hold in the palm of my hand
Tell me what I feel because I'm trying to understand
I'm sending Transmission

Confused by the weight of our virtue
We follow the paths of the slain
In silence we walk through these shadows
Embracing the pleasures of pain
Once again


Babylon [Radio Single]

Now that the thrill of the massacre is over
Isn't it sweet when she sucks on your veins
I've waited so long

I roll back the stone just to see what I'm missing
Glimpses of grandeur now faced with defeat
I've waited so long

Now that your kingdom of babylon's fading
Where will you turn when you can't find your soul
I've waited so long

Salvation's at hand, it's a matter of taste dear
Lost in ideals that you found in the trash
I've waited so long


Pulse

I saw a face in the mirror
That made my blood run clear
I think I've waited too long

I went along for the ride
She complicated the slide
I went to take her hand
I couldn't feel a pulse

Senseless is pleasure
Nothing's forever
The sooner you see
You can't deny me

I had a dream that within
A celebration of sin
We do a dance with denial

I only wanted a friend
To see the beautiful end
She went to take my hand
She couldn't feel a pulse

Senseless is pleasure
Nothing's forever
The sooner you see
You can't deny me


Emerald

Confess what you crave
A life without pain
You'd kill for the taste
But the hurt still remains

Still they don't know who you are

Just be still my emerald
I'll be waiting for you
Do exactly as you're told
I'll be waiting for you

Ashamed by the threats
You pierce the embrace
Afraid and alone
In a dark lonely place

Did you always want to be
Did they try to steal your soul
Did they hurt you with deceit
Can't you come in from the cold
Be still my emerald
I'll be waiting for you


Aftermath

Desperate to take
Lost in its wake
Time slips away too soon

Pleasures of fear
Drawing us near
Where do we go from here

Waste what we want
We beg and we're bought
And nothing is wrong with us

Life in these veins
Godless and stained
Glimpses of hope exist

Slanted advance
Threatened by chance
Time slips away too soon

Waste what we want
We beg and we're bought
And nothing is wrong with us

Touch [Radio Single]

catatonic listless creature
try to comprehend
everything you've ever wanted
it's around the next bend

don't try to fake it
i see you shaking
it doesn't mean a thing

look at you, the freak attraction
in this carnival of souls
failing all negotiations
you'll be the next sold

don't try to fake it
i see you shaking
it doesn't mean anything

now love, don't make a sound
reach down and touch the ground

emptiness is almost certain
like an automatic dream
you're closing in on the final curtain
you're on the next scene


Underground

i don't need your redemption
i don't want you to deceive me
and I don't need your forgiveness
I only want you to believe me

do you see me here
i'm standing naked
do you see me here on my knees

now all my life i've been wandering
looking for teachers with the keys
nothing found still searching for sound
underground...

now let me tell you about a story
it's about a man consumed with vice
he's theosophical in nature
and hedonistic in disguise

and all my life he's been wandering
searching for teachers with the keys
nothing found still searching for sound
underground...


Great Big Lie

god is pressure
god is pressure more or less
and it takes a lifetime
a life of lies to make a mess
ah but you suffer
i see you suffer with a smile
well look around yourself,
baby don't you think you're in denial

and it hurts so bad
to see your garden of debris
don't make a move now
it could be the thing that sets you free

all you say now
is a great big lie
just say you didn't mean
and you'll still deny
it's a great big lie

you pulled the plug
you pulled the plug to save your face
and i'd be the first
to reconciliate the grace
ah but you suffer
i see you suffer with a smile
look around yourself
don't you think you're in denial

all you say now
is a great big lie
just say you didn't mean
and you'll still deny
it's a great big lie


Heaven Coming Down [Single]

with nothing to lose you'd waste away
obscure in exile
they've witnessed the times
you've gone astray
whose fault? now you're thinking...

theres's nothing to prove
a snapshot from the crowd
to the shore...

and it feels now
just like heaven's coming down
your soul shakes free
as its conscience hits the ground

so strange are the ways,
they all have changed
still life it stays the same
a break from the past
could make it last
maybe just a little longer

there's nothing to prove
a snapshot from the crowd
to the shore...

you surrender
love under will
rest assured you're adored

and it feels now
just like heaven's coming down
your soul shakes free
as its conscience hits the ground
this time, no tears,
just one last chance to see you prove
stay strong, no fears
there is a change that's coming through
hold on my love
hold on...


The Halcyon Days

alone, left here in dust
amidst my fears and doubts
life's shattered dreams I could have
gone without
now chthonic life has set its sights on
making me a slave to its ways
i wait for return
until then my soul it burns
and it burns only for you...

i'll be with you soon...

night it falls on me endlessly
I search for you in this blindness
I'm a prodigy of lust and loss
'til sleep comes down

i can't explain, this disdain remains
this treason i can't reason
they left me here for dead my dear
barely breathing, but i'm still breathing

now i see a loght
it's shining from above
i think they've finally come
the halcyon days

I'm crawling now up
towards the sound
vengeance moves so swiftly
i've conquered fear
i've shed my tears
now i'm seething, barely breathing

now i see a light
shining from above
i think they've finally come
the halcyon days


The Messenger [Canadian Radio Single]

got a letter from a messenger
i read it when it came
it said that you were wounded
you were bound and chained
you had love and you were handled
you were poisoned you were pained
oh no you were naked
you were shamed

you could almost touch heaven
right there in front of you
liberty just slipped away on us
now there's so much work to do
oh the door that closes tightly
is the door than can swing wide
oh no not expecting to collide

for a minute i let my guard down
not afraid to be found out
i completely forgot dear
what our fears were all about
oh no there's no need to be without

if there's a chance i would take it
this desire i can't kill
take my heart please don't break it
i will crawl to your foothill

i'm frightened but i'm coming
please baby please lay still
oh no i'm not coming for the kill


Samsara

please would you tell me my friend
which direction is the way ?
because i'm lost, i'm confused
the reality we choose
is a long, long way from the dream

all you'll feel is pain and suffering
wading through samsara

yes but i've heard that before
from those teachers of dreams
but it's old and it's cold
i just can't feel it in my soul
am i damned to a life of extremes

all you'll feel is pain and suffering
wading through samsara

but i've looked to the east
and i've prayed in the west
what i know, i've seen
you just couldn't imagine
where i've been
and i feel at this time
i just need to rest
and i'd like to stay here
i would love to stay here
would you let me stay here, please...

A Slight Attack [Aust. Radio Single]

demonic little love god
do you want to see me bleed
anarchistic little beggar man
now you want a piece of me
you're just a lot of talk
without a lot of sense
here comes another slight attack
it's got you hanging from the fence

of the tears will fall
and the tears will fall
you say these tears will wash away the stains

tell me how do you feel the shame
when it all falls through
will you feel this way?

you're just another chronic liar
a sentinel of farce
integrity's a fairytale
it makes e wonder who you are
it's just another creed
shame is gone to the seed
here comes another slight attack
it could be the thing you need

Brace yourself with arrogance
In case you see the light
You'll be hanging like a scarecrow
waiting for the second sight

You're furious with envy
the token of the charm
Another Slight Attack
now, should you be alarmed...


Taking Me Away

a view from a broken window
i can hardly breathe
clouds are forming faces
and they laugh at me

strange desires
under friendly fire
but it's alright it still feels nice

it's taking me away
i'm seeking shelter from the pain
i'm holding on again
holding on again
seeking shelter from the pain

it gives me a line and i cross it
an acrobat graced with skill
getting your freedom's easy
surviving it's harder still

strange desires
under friendly skies
but it's alright it still feels nice

it's taking me away
i'm seeking shelter from the pain
i'm holding on again
holding on again
seeking shelter from the pain

and the race is on
i'm all out of sync now
and the hands withdraw
i'm out of sync now
is there something more

it's taking me away
i'm seeking shelter from the pain
i'm holding on again
seeking shelter from the pain
it's taken me


These Living Arms

so a crowd had gathered around us
i'm pining one last kiss
i'm struggling with the lifeline
in the shadow of this bliss
patience my love it'll all be alright

but ain't it funny how the fates work
i feel cheated by the turn
still this love it hovers over us
and the lessons that we've learned
patience my love it'll all be alright

with your arms around me
you're singing softly
and i fade from memories
and move on

we were lost inside a wasteland
of fools groping for the gold
i wonder if they'll think of us
while they're still searching for their souls
patience my love it'll all be alright

with your arms around me
you're singing softly
and i fade from memories
and move on

so never put it out my love
the spirit is the flame that burns within
hold on to me
and it'll all be alright

sleep now is descending like a dream
still i'm shaking from the softness
of your skin
hold on to me
and it'll all be alright

with your arms around me
you're singing softly
and i fade from memories
and move on
may nothing harm you
i'm still inside you
with my wings around you
you'll go on

sweet lover go on
my love be strong


Chimera

you say it's all about intention
a chimera in disguise
its about your life, the greed
the loneliness it needs now
just to say you've claimed the prize
of letting go...

you say you're all about your virtue
but it's a harlequin of shame
you look around confused by the sound
of intention gone aground now
because it's all about the fame

and now you're letting go
but it's a little late
there's little time to show

so tell me now...
would you do it all again...
could you do it all again...

you say it's all about
forgiveness now...
well you can grovel if you'd like
but turn around,
do you hear that sound
that's integrity gone aground now
in the name of sacrifice


Gone

broken moments in time could till shine
but they're getting old
if you could see the world with my eyes
you'd be so surprised at what you'd know

so, if you see my angel of light
with her sweet wine
could you let me know
because i think she's gone again

fatal are these moments of trust
that pleases us and who would know
helped here by the passions of life
now strife won't let me go

so, if you see my angel of light
with her sweet wine
i thik she needs to know
that i've gone again
i've really gone again
i think i'm gone again

so lonely

Walking Wounded

Is it safe to look within
And to erase all that's been
And all that's been between
Is it gone, tell me what went wrong
'cause baby i'm not that strong

And I'm walking wounded
All Alone

Are you comfortable and numb
Do they all succumb to all those lies
Does it satisfy the greed
Is it all you need
Is it all you want
'cause baby i'm not that strong

And I'm walking wounded
All Alone

If your memories do stray
Then they'll betray all that's past
And all that's been between
Is it gone tell me what went wrong
'cause baby I'm not that strong

How does it feel?

Waiting On A Sign

I see you walking
you're a miracle on earth
and I've been tempted
but now my will won't stray

so please say you stay
you know that I'm a good man
it's gonna take a little time
if you waiting on a sign

I know I've hurt you
I won't hurt you anymore
your tears have spoken
I wanna wash your tears away
so please say you'll stay
I swear that I'm a good man
it's gonna take a little time
if you're waiting on a sign
And I remember
like a martyr in the moonlight
this resistance now be shall overcome

so please say you stay
I swear that I?? good man
it's gonna take a little time
if you waiting on a sign

And if it pleases you my love
I'll get on my knees and
if you leave with me my love
take this pain away


Lifeline

See this lifeline in chains
Safe resistance restrains
Listless lover of stars
Makes me wonder how far, you've come

All you've learnt
You've forgotten
You desperate soul
You're lost again

Can't help feeling betrayed
Nothing's come from the grave
Helpless angel of fate
How much longer to wait?

All you've learnt
You've forgotten
You desperate soul
You're lost again

Don't you see, all this time?
Takes away, takes the place up, up above?
Can't you see light here, and it's shining?
Look around, I'll be waiting love

Crushed by lies in the dark
Helped them tear you apart
Listless lover of stars
It makes me wonder how far, you've come

All you've learnt
You've forgotten
You desperate soul
You're lost again

Don't you see all this time
Takes away, takes the place, up, up above?
Can't you see light here, and it's shining?
Look around I'll be waiting love

Don't you see all this time
Takes away, takes the place, up, up above?
Can't you see light here, and it's shining?
Look around I'll be waiting love


Paint It, Black

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby it just happens ev'ryday

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and it has been painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not forsee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm...

I wanna see it painted black, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah
