1. RULES AND GAMES

Define the marks prepare to laugh
So sorry, you never had your reasons
Loose the lips and sink the ships
A cycle, broken and amused

Rules and games, playful moments
That won't last no matter how we feel
Ropes that strains to catch the picture frames
No never what is real

Avenues we all confuse
These maps will make them disappear
Mountain side your feelings lie
For better sense without your fear

Rules and games, playful moments
That won't last no matter how we feel
Ropes that strains to catch the picture frames
No never what is real

Stay with me now
Now i can hide away
Stay with me now
Driving the lights away
Stay with me now
Now we can find a way

Rules and games, playful moments
That won't last no matter how we feel
Ropes that strains to catch the picture frames
No never what is real


2. TO DIE LIKE MOUCHETTE

Kick start your heart
Just like an engine,
Battered and over-used
Are we really ready?
I don't think it's any use
If you think it feels
Close to you, angel
There's nothing left to lose

Please, believe
In what i have to say
The symptoms that you have are, so lost
Your wires are crossed
Are you leaving?

Discarded on the floor
We feel the pain,
Nestled and over-shores.
Well
If you tell
Your truths to me,
So sorry to let it go

If you think it feels
Close to you, angel
It's only one excuse

Please, believe
In what i have to say
The symptoms that you have are, so lost
Your wires are crossed
Are you leaving?
Well just leave
We never analysed the way
You didn't like
The look of his eyes,
Our lovers spy
You have to leave it,
We're on our way

Please, believe
In what i have to say
The symptoms
That you have are, so lost
Your wires are crossed
Are you leaving?
Well just leave,
We never analysed the way
You didn't like
The look of his eyes,
Our lovers spy
You have to leave it,
We're on our way


3. KICKING AND SCREAMING

Growing old, around these streets
Never really felt quite like, like anything
Expect nothing, and have the chance
To really go somewhere, that you can't

My love is exploitation
Not a passing celebration
And I don't want to feel
Like a part of history

Gonna' turn this town, upside down
We can die well, in their eyes
Just to feel
Promises broken, at a quarter past five
Burning fires, on the railway hillsides

My love is exploitation
Not a passing celebration
And I don't want to feel
Like a part of history

And the grass is greener, on the other side
That's where I want to be, somewhere that she can really see
We all go out like we come in, kicking and screaming
We all go out like we come in, kicking and screaming
We all go out like we come in, kicking and screaming

My love is exploitation
Not a passing celebration
And I don't want to feel
Like a part of history

And the grass is greener, on the other side
That's where I want to be, somewhere that she can really see


4. CONSTANT ILLUMINATIONS

Where's the emotion?
Tuned to the sound of sincerity
Without connection
The lesson doesn't come for free
Senseless distractions
Your spoken words are just a lie
These interactions
The desperate act of fleeting minds

Constant illuminations
With no hope of preservation
Nothing but friendly fire
Soon you will be home again

Buried expression
They are the heart of everything
Distant impressions
When there is nothing left to say
So damn lucky
To be hear at the end of the end of the day
So damn lucky
When all the streets still cal your name

Constant illuminations
With no hope of preservation
Nothing but friendly fire
Soon you will be home again

(Spirit dies within)

Constant illuminations
With no hope of preservation
Nothing but friendly fire
Soon you will be home again

The spirit, the spirit, the spirit
It dies within


5. MAYBE I AM?

Maybe I'm a pessimist
What if all the grey clouds in the sky
Follow me home tonigh?

Maybe I'm an atheist
What if there's no god waiting to meet me
At the end of the working week

Maybe I'm just delicate
Maybe I am...

Just not clever enough to persuade
Everyone of the reasons
We're failing each other
And it's not the same, not the same to me
No it's not the same, not the same to me

Maybe I'm an optimist
What if all the damage that was done
Was never up to me?

Maybe I'm a liar
What if all the truths that I have told
Are better left, better left unsaid?

Maybe I'm just delicate
Maybe I am...

Just not clever enough to persuade
Everyone of the reasons
We're failing each other
And it's not the same, not the same to me
No it's not the same, not the same to me

What sticks to me
Sticks to you like glue

What sticks to me
Sticks to you like glue

Maybe I'm just delicate
Maybe I am...

Just not clever enough to persuade
Everyone of the reasons
We're failing each other
And it's not the same, not the same to me
No it's not the same, not the same to me

So I'll pack up my bags and leave


6. YOU CAN'T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE WOLVES

Give me something to believe in
Something that is real
A moment of reflection
What should I believe?

I've lost my innocence
If you see it around please tell it to call

(I can't stomach, my own stomach)

It can't tell me truths I need
When what I feel and what I see isn't even real

(What should I believe?)

Give me something to believe in
Something that is real
A moment of reflection
What should I believe?

Television tells me one thing
Brain tells me something else

(Bullshit never had any intelligence)

War's a terror that we can do without
Small town thinkers will always wear you down

(Just don't look for the hidden meanings)

Give me something to believe in
Something that is real
A moment of reflection
What should I believe?

Start with a voice, with some heart
(Something to believe)
End with a song in the light
(Something to believe)

Give me something to believe in
Give me something that is real


7. BUILDING

Shouldering the blame
walking into frame
Like a lighted silhouette
Against a cotton sheet
Smothering the crease

Tin can in hand
waiting for god to come around
But he never comes around
He never comes around

Quiet like a mouse
Building up your house
Just to tear it down
Leaving us the pieces
Do they ever fit?

Tin can in hand
Waiting for god to come around
But he never comes around
He never comes around
He never comes around


8. BENEATH THE BURNING TREE

Carbon copy aftertaste
The taste of lips so delicate
Stop the click and watch the room
Sitting pretty in full bloom

Your stain on my fingers like a headache that the pills won't kill

Hold your breath this is the part
That I've been waiting for
Words spill out in front of you
On your bedroom floor

Your stain on my fingers like a headache that the pills won't kill

I sat beneath the burning tree
I never gave my world away (maybe I should, maybe I could)
I sat beneath the burning tree
I never gave my world away (maybe I should, maybe I could)

I never gave my world away
Maybe I should, maybe I could?
I never gave my world away
Maybe I should, maybe I could?

I never gave my world away (maybe I should, maybe I could)
I sat beneath the burning tree
I never gave my world away (maybe I should, maybe I could)
I sat beneath the burning tree
The burning tree
The burning tree


9. SOMEDAY THE FIRE...

You start working with the same device
The narrative is breaking down again
You're standing down the same old asking price
The cards are drawn the fires getting warm

All works and play there's nothing left to say
They wouldn't want it any other way

Running fast when the lights are fading
We make the same mistakes
We know we have to face
Someday the fires will keep on burning
But today run away never look behind

The time it takes to walk home alone
The pleasure stops keeps weakness
From the top of your head
Servants blockade informants keep the peace
The pleasure stops why does it have to stop

All works and play there's nothing left to say
You wouldn't want it any other way
Running fast when the lights are fading
We make the same mistakes
We know we have to face
Someday the fires will keep on burning
But today run away never look behind

The same old pictures playing over again

Running fast when the lights are fading
We make the same mistakes
We know we have to face
Someday the fires will keep on burning
But today run away never look behind
We make we make the same mistakes
But today run away never look behind
We make we make the same mistakes
But today run away never look behind


10. WATERFRONT DANCE CLUB

Scarred open wounds
The needle, it dances and glows through the skin
Under lights that burn so bright
And roads we see at night

The light has faded through the windows
The light has faded through the windows

Destroy to destroy
Landscapes and people you know and people you don't
Wards of empty patients just to sleep away the days

The light has faded through the windows
The light has faded through the windows

Last call on the waterfront as the kids all stare
Into thin air,
Last call on the waterfront as the kids all stare
Into thin air
You wait for your breath to come
Your breath to come
Your breath to come
Your breath to come

The fantasy of reality goes rushing through your head
Just a symphony of a restless dream down to your fingertips

Last call on the waterfront as the kids all stare
Into thin air,
Last call on the waterfront as the kids all stare
Into thin air, you wait for your breath to come


11. CHARLIE DON'T SURF

I called the house to see if anyone was home
Question the silences, the negative response
Stayed to see the sunrise
Didn't loose the sense of promise
Laced upon the air
Education was a simple learning curve
Ruined by the lack of anything to use
Of knowing what to say and what to lock away
Pay attention for detentions here to stay

And it took so long to find
All the answers through the lies
And it's been so long
That I don't know if it's alright

Problematic interest never fails to impress
Score cards for everyone
You wear them out to dress
Badge of honour true to code and true to form
Buried underneath all these expectations
If there could be any kind of picutre
That I could paint for you
I bet you any money that the numbers
Wouldn't stick for all I know
I'll take some credit for myself if I can
And walk away from this
Whole scene a happier man

And it took so long to find
All the answers through the lies
And it's been so long
That I don't know if it's alright

It's alright
It's alright
It's alright

And it took so long to wait until the end


12. GHOSTS

Congratulations it's a boy
Buried underneath the afterbirth of joy

Sticks and stones will always break
His bones can barely take the weight
Of your breath breathing down his neck again

Keep it to yourself
You don't need to ask
Everything was golden
Memories will last

Kisses at bedtime never meant
A life that came to represent
Failings that she could not forget again

Keep it to yourself
You don't need to ask
Everything was golden
Memories will last

She could not forget
Breathing down his neck
She could not forget

The price you is never worth
The pain to suffer the abuse
Lie down and sleep
With all your ghosts again
Again, again and again


13. CONSTANT RESURRECTIONS

Closing folding like a star
Bring you back to see the lights
Bluest water falling down on your skin
On your skin

Keep you eyes locked away
In some lonely place
Don't stop, Don't stop
When the music's over

Crosses made to bare the weight
You never bothered to explain
Questions swim around your head

Keep you eyes locked away
In some lonely place
Don't stop don't stop
When the music's over now

Closing folding like a star
Brings you back to se the lights
Bluest water falling down
On your skin, on your skin

Keep your eyes locked away
In some lonely place
Don't stop don't stop
When the music's over
Now It's over now
