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

Sirens 05:10
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

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

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

Paper Plane 03:15
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

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.

Maybe 04:44
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

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
