Track Name: The Candle or the Flame
You and I are the candle or the flame
But either possibility it does no good for me
I'm like a camel under the sun
Like the prophet in the desert can't leave for anything or one
I'm the only sparrow on the wind
And the moment you lose focus I'm gone and never seen again
You're like a boxer in the ring
Keep your hands tied tightly so you won't have to handle me
I'm an old fisherman on the sea
I step foot on the sand and the waves drag me out again
And you, you’re like the last day of the fall
You usher in the winter while I fight it tooth and claw
Maybe I'll find a way
Maybe I'll find my way home
I am never at home (no matter where I am)
I am never at home (no matter what I do)
But I would turn my whole world over just to be with you
I would crawl through every desert just to be with you
I would follow every breeze just to be with you
I would swim past every wave just to be with you
Track Name: Sirens
come to me love
listen to me and forget your past
come to me love
the promise is mine you won't feel a thing
No you won't feel a thing
No you won't feel a thing
They sew many buttons on their lips
There's no doubt what's sinking ships
With so many buttons on their lips
There's no doubt who’s sinking ships
And the stars are built in their eyes
Blinded by their exquisite sight
A change of course they surrender their plans
And to the wheel they commit their hands
come to me my lovely one
Listen to me while I sing so sweet
come to me my lovely one
the promise is mine you won't remember a thing
remember a thing
remember a thing
They sew many buttons on their lips
There's no doubt what's sinking ships
With so many buttons on their lips
There's no doubt who’s sinking ships
And the stars exploded in their eyes
As the ship crashed into the cliff
No survivors no last lovers kiss
Only black water in their last minute of life
Track Name: Fighting to Standing (the soporific sequence)
I hear the noise noise noise clanging away in my soul
And the tick tick tocking tellin me to leave it alone
Clinging to the sides of the tangled web that I weave
And I'm building up a house of what I fear that I need
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
But I just can't stand the pain
I fight politics to death but got no mind of my own
It's just a feeble attempt to show off what I know
The kings of wisdom came and put all reason to rest
And now I'm making nicey-nice with this army of rats
And they think I'm crazed yeah they think I'm crazed
And they think I'm crazed yeah they think I'm crazed
But I just can't stand the pain
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
But I just can't stand the pain
Far too demanding, my heart is bending, fighting to standing
fighting to standing
Track Name: No Matter Where I Am
You notice 2 hearts don't beat as one
You notice 2 hearts don't beat as one
But when the engine stops, and the tears are fallin in unsynchopated beats
You notice one heart is lonesome for us all
You notice one heart is lonesome for us all
But when the castle walls fall down and our bodies are battered and buried underneath
It's been a long hard fight, but you won't let me get through to you
It's been a smouldering fire, I walked the coals to carry you
I might be going, but I still love you, no matter where I am.
Dearly beloved, we gathered ourselves here today
To witness the bride with doubts consuming her mind
And the gold wedding band's no symbol of the love that she's found
She gave it all away, threw it all away, blew it all away
It's been a long hard life, I have no strength to hold up the roof
It's been a sham all this time you know my weakness and I harbor my lies
I might be going, but I still love you, no matter where I am.
No matter where I am
Track Name: Paper Plane
Fakin a smile as we go on
My sight is faded like the sun
We run around in figure 8s only leavin it to fate
Only victims run this race
Well one plus one is two it's best
These bricks are stacked against my chest
The truth is never hidden long so give it up and let's be done
We're only barely hanging on.
Don't fail to make it (take a plunge into the drink)
Comb your hair in a hurricane tell me I'm the one to blame
My little dear
Comb your hair in a hurricane tell me I'm the one to blame
My little dear
These guns are blazin in my hands
Leavin welts like rubber bands
Fallin prey to every scam just be still my little lamb
I'm not the wolf you say I am
My demon's watchin every step
His hands are twisted round my neck
Put up the walls keep out the light crawl and stumble through the night
Even the cactuses have knives.
A tidalwave is coming (I feel it in my bones)
Riding around in a paper plane lighting matches long the way
Goodbye my dear
Riding around in a paper plane lighting matches long the way
Goodbye my dear
Riding around in a paper plane lighting matches long the way
Goodbye my dear
Track Name: The Tiger and the Crane and the Child
Said the tiger to the crane
Tell me what to do, what must I do?
I have always had the heart of kite, I have always wanted to fly.
But these four legs keep me down
Yes these four legs keep me down
And the crane looked him right in the eyes
What would I know? How should I know?
I am just a crane. I am not a bird. I am not designed for the sky
It's these long legs that keep me down.
Yes my long legs keep me down.
And so they both stay on the land
But it wasn't supposed to go like this
Said the tiger to the child
Tell me what to know, what must I know?
I have always wanted to be in love, I want to feel it in my bones.
But my mind of stone keeps me down.
Yes my mind of stone keeps me down.
And the child shot him between the eyes.
What would I know? How should I know?
I am just a child, I am not human. I am not designed to be in love.
It's my heart of stone that keeps me down
Yes, it's my heart of stone that keeps me down.
And so the child destroyed the land.
But it wasn't supposed to go like this.
No, it wasn't supposed to go like this.
Yes my heart of stone keeps me down.
Yes my heart of stone keeps me down.
Yes my heart of stone keeps me down.
Track Name: Maybe
Maybe I'll wait for too long and I'll go to the way that I came from
Maybe I'll take from the hand that has always been outstretched to strike me
Been outstretched to strike me. Been outstretched to strike me.
Maybe I'll find peace of mind if I stand aback the highest of mountains
Maybe I'll learn to reject all the ways of my past livin
They say I'm meant for this, say I'm meant for this but I don't know
They say I'm meant for this, say I'm meant for this but I don't know
But look into my face, and look through my eyes, you might change your mind
Maybe I'll show you to the way to the life that will never destroy me.
Maybe you'll find a peace of might and a sight that you'd never bargain or trade.
But look into my face, and look through my eyes you might change mind
Change your mind
Cause We were made for this, we were made for this that I know.
Maybe I'll show you to a way to a life that will never destroy me.
Maybe you'll find a peace of might and a sight that you'll never bargain or trade.
Just look into my face, and through my eyes you might change mind
Track Name: Fighting to Standing (the wall of sound)
I hear the noise noise noise clanging away in my soul
And the tick tick tocking tellin me to leave it alone
Clinging to the sides of the tangled web that I weave
And I'm building up a house of what I fear that I need
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
But I just can't stand the pain
I fight politics to death but got no mind of my own
It's just a feeble attempt to show off what I know
The kings of wisdom came and put all reason to rest
And now I'm making nicey-nice with this army of rats
And they think I'm crazed yeah they think I'm crazed
And they think I'm crazed yeah they think I'm crazed
But I just can't stand the pain
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
And I think I'm crazed yeah I think I'm crazed
But I just can't stand the pain
Far too demanding, my heart is bending, fighting to standing
fighting to standing
Track Name: We Ain't Quittin'
I took the sleeping pill, it was against my will it was so black and white
I awoke in chains that I could not break, and I fought through the night
I screamed in pain and the nightmare fades it was so black and white
My body rose and fell under a spell, I succumbed cause it felt so right
I awoke from a dream with no memory it was so black and white
Cause from down below a deep and hollow soul had mistaken my sight
And there’s no feelin in here and we can’t make it clear
We can’t tell if we stand if we can if we breathe if love or deceive
We’re still movin’
We’re still trembling
We’re still listenin’
We ain’t quittin’
They gaffed hooks in me told me they’ve set me free if I could crawl through the night
The air is wearin me short give me something to resort to or just leave me on my way
But there’s no feelin sometimes all my days into lines
They can if they look into words into thoughts that I can’t repeat, no I can’t
We’re still movin’
We’re still trembling
We’re still listenin’
We ain’t quittin’
We’re still movin’
We’re still trembling
We’re still listenin’
We ain’t quittin’
Give us something to believe in
I was blind but now I see
