length: 3:53
On this side a man, his hand on the free world
An army at his command
Driving to the make-out point on the shores
Of the lake of the d***ed
And we say 'Ain't love grand?'
When you find someone who loves you like that
You want them back in your life
He calls from the car
He speaks through a speechwriter
Trying to sound less needy
Hoping to hear 'I'd love you to lead me'
Show me your strengths and
I'll show you what surrender can be'
When you find someone who loves you like that
You want them back in your life
'If I have to burn the world to get your attention
Don't make it tempting, don't make it tempting'
'We' li be together, someday, I know this
I promised it to myself
Playing old records over and over
High
On a mountain somewhere
Breathing in that desert air, somewhere, where
No one can touch us
Sharing a dream as a prisoner screams
Hands on the switch as we throw it- together'
When you find someone who loves you like that
You want them back in your life
Don't Die

b***erfly you blew it the bullet made you officially artificial
Destiny has met the dove
The passing drained off all their blood
When did we smile? I can't remember but it must have been quite awhile
Don't die young, baby, don't die young
Everybody saw the guns
Don't die young, baby, don't die young
Cuz baby you're too young to die
Don't suck the sun from the summer sky
Italian torture gave us DaVinci but also Medici
What can it teach me? Arguments are simplified with all the spears
Piercing my side
What can I say? Make up my mind make up the kind of things that make it go away
Don't die young, baby, don't die young
The country needs your blood to run
Don't die young, baby, don't die young
Nobody knows what has come
Don't die young, baby, don't die young
Cuz baby you're too young to die
Don't take the sun from the summer sky
Just hang up your heart and cry, cry
Cry
If you believe in love
If you believe that it's never enough
But you were wrong it never has been all along
Don't die now, now, now don't die
Don't die young, baby don't die young
The country needs your blood to run
Don't die young, baby, don't die young
Cold and far from your home
Don't die young, baby, don't die young
Baby you're too young to die
Let Me Do

Roll me over, go shoulder to shoulder
And let one come from two
Me and you
I said I'd see it through, now
let me do the right things to you
If I said your book's gone unread and you're way overdue
Would you let me turn a page or two
And let me see it through? Now baby let me do the right things to do
'Sing that song, boy, all night long and every single day'
Love
Love ain't something we can't improve
So would you let me do it right, now baby
Let me be the light you see through
You can hold me to my word til it's true
I said "d see you through, now let me do the right things to you
If I said that time's never ending and we could start life new
Would it do a thing for you? And would you let me see it through
Let me do the right things to you
Let me do it cuz I want to see you through it
For Your Sake

If you're finally wondering
If you're fully aware
If you foil to recognize
If your fortune is fair
If you feel sympathy
If you find acceptance
If you forget faces
If you finish 0 sentence
If you file a memory
If you lace a consequence
If you forgo pleasure
If you fake enjoyment
If you figure it's worth it
If you fall down
If you f*** up, I'll come around, I'll come around
Throw your fate into the highest ring then you can
Toke a walk and forget everything if for your sake
If you toke offense
If you're tortured
If you tend to go along
If you've totaled your possessions
If you tide it over
If you've tied one on
If you've teased it out
If you turned it on
If you've told a lie or not told a lie
I'll come around
Throw your fate into the highest ring then you can
Toke a walk and forget everything if for your sake
Spend eternity waiting to come into view
Of who already sees you os you
If you grab at nothing
If you go deep in the dark
If you get too twitchy
If you grow weary
If you gasp at the price
If you grimly go ahead
If you gaze with longing
If you grip the crumbling edge
If you gallop towards the horizons
If you gawk at the spectacular
If you gauge your success
If you gorge yourself
If you're greedy 011 the time
If you gain no new ground
If you're grinding to a halt
I'll come around
Throw your fate into the highest ring then you can
Toke a walk and forget everything if for your sake
Spend eternity waiting to come into view
Of who already sees you, sees you for you
If you've hod enough
If you heed warnings
If you hove heard different
If you hate mornings
If you're heading somewhere
If your head starts to pound
If you can just hang on
I'll come around
Je Vous En Prie

It's so unfair
The stars they just hong there
They never soy nothing to me
Dominique
If you were here
The things I would tell you
All that time alone
How often I pictured your face
While the winter was freezing me
The desert kept moving me
And there's oceans between us tonight
Cherie, cherie
Je vous en prie
Toke me like a cigarette
Put me to your lips
Breathe me in deep
I pray my soul you'll keep
Toke me to your bed when you sleep
Cherie, je vous en prie
All religion can sound like weeping
Cries for a mother that's drown in the sky
On our knees we beg for a lullaby
If no one comes running we lose our beliefs
Oh baby this won't happen to me
I will always believe in your lips
On your kiss I subsist
Cherie, cherie
Je vous en prie
Take me like a cigarette
Put me to your lips
Breathe me in deep
I pray my soul you'll keep
Toke me to your bed when you sleep
Let me touch one of your dreams
Boy you've been running somewhere
Do you know where home is, has it been too long to core?
Boy, you've been running so long
Does anyone remember you're gone?
Better sing your lover this song
Cherie, cherie
Je vous en prie
Toke me like a cigarette
Put me to your lips
Breathe me in deep
I pray my soul you'll keep
Take me to your bed when
you sleep
Cherie, cherie
Set fire to me
Lei me drift towards your
fingers while I'm burning
Put me to your lips
I pray my soul you'll keep
Toke me to your bed when
you sleep
Cherie
Cherie
Je vous en prie
You Become the Dawn

Nothing to mourn, we die and die until
Until we're born, recast as forms
So pleasing to the soul
I never miss anyone, to me they're never gone
If that makes you uncomfortable, baby
Don' t be too long
And now you're wondering if that song was the song you heard
When the form was just the word and the world was golden
And the only way to pray was to be cast as the dawn
Backwards in time, the rhyme within you was another child
Wanting to strive, but this time, not required
Wanting to try but not to the size of the of the role intended
You think it's ended, but it begins with each choice
And now you're wondering if that song was the song you heard
When the form was just the word and the world was golden
And the only way to praise was to be sung as the dawn
Kingdoms and criminals all under the same light
As dawn shall follow night
As fall shall follow flight
Sing yourself awake, call the winds into blowing
It's a wise child who finds this advice
First among many many lives
And now you know that the song you heard
Has called your form in from the word
And the world is golden
You've become the dawn
Down of the Dub of the Down feat. Gaffa Man

Cyclone Graves

You can't run away
You were born it's all the some game
Tear off the roof of your life
And start your searching again
You come on the day the clouds went away
To their cyclone graves
Where they stay-os sure as I soy, that
I hope you never go blind
I hope that you're more than just kind
Oh, to yourself You talk to the wind
And you hope that it will listen in
Blow you back where you can begin
To resemble your weakest sin
You come on the day the winds blew away
To their cyclone graves
Where they stay-as sure as I say, that
I hope you never go blind
I hope that you're more than just kind
Better find it, never fight it, never regret your loves
Your love makes you less than useless, oh to yourself
There's something about the way you hide
The strength to engage an alibi
Under the scrutiny of love
What will it toke to raise you above yourself?
Divine or profane?
Drink the wine or linger in the rain?
Maybe you don't have to choose
And fortune's smiling on everyone
And I think it's smiling on you
You come on the day the clouds blew away
To their cyclone graves
Where they stay-as sure as I say, that
I hope you never go blind
I hope that you're more than just kind
Better find it, never fight it, never regret your love
Your love makes you less than useless
Love- Makes you humble
Pulls you forward - Never fight it, never fight it, never regret your love
Your love makes you less than useless
Oh to yourself
Death of A City

Did Roy really survive the death of a city that once was olive?
Still wears bespoke suits, he feels fireproof, maybe religion still Offers him proof
And he walks right thru you and I now silently making his usual Rounds
Oh you're over and done with now
You've broken my heart in
But that's not important - A minor misfortune
Now you're over and done with now
The Death of a City
And nobody really cared
Back streets, somebody weeps, closed circuit cameras are making The sweep and they look down
on grass turning brown cuz nothing Is able to live in this town so you go out, late, and look for the
stars, All you see is orange on the clouds
Oh you're over and done with now
You've broken my heart in
But that's not important - A minor misfortune
Now you're over and done with now
The Death of a City
And nobody really cores
Are we able to see what somebody was dreaming in steel and in Stone?
Streets laid workers were paid and the skyline was something that Everyone owned
And you know sometimes that's all you get to
No you're not going now not when we 're still enough to hear our Own sounds like
When we breathe thru each other's mouths, the broken out window Gives view to the south
Now was it just a trick of the light, or did I see movement attracting My sight is it somebody waiting for
word to pull the curtain down?
Oh you're over and done with now
You've broken my heart in
But that's not important - A minor misfortune
Now you're over and done with now
The Death of a City
And nobody really cores
Oh you're over and done with now
You've broken my heart in
But that's not important - A minor misfortune
Now you're over and done with now
The Death of a City
And nobody really cares
But don't cry - Don't cry
Cuz it's over and done with
Over and done with now
DOWN LIKE ME

At last I understand the consequences of my love
But how could there be a heaven when they kicked you out
'Cuz you kicked out your chair from above?
Everybody loves to stick with a winner
But you showed me the line between victory and dying
Couldn't get much thinner 'cuz you
You found out how to get down - Down like Me
When my self-pity became less than full time work
I meditated on the methods and the means
And whether or not it would hurt
Then I got the call they found you swinging out over the earth
So over me you win again
In finishes, forms, in finals and in firsts
You finally had to get down-Down Like Me
"By the time you read this I will no longer be here"
I had to read these words to all your family/friends
Everybody you never held dear
We'll keep an empty place at dinner forever
And I'll maintain an empty chair so you can set in
And we'll never grow old together
You showed 'em how to get down - Down Like Me
THIS ONE'S ON YOU

You want to be alone
You've seen too much for one life
You're sickened by what was shown
You're tired from all the pain
It's so hard to not complain
But don' t you see love breaks you open so you can heal again?
But this new love might fit you like a glove and
This One's On You
Say goodbye to the self you knew
You say that you've been burned
At least it feels like it's always your turn
And no surprise won't come back to bite you
As far as you' re concerned
You're so much smarter' cuz you have seen
How messy love can be
Well we don't need no education to your kind of scene
But this new love ...
Liberate your mind - it's easy now you'll find
Your heart can really fly
Look down and see those hilts and towns
You know they're a ll on higher ground
You're finding what they've found
There's so much you could repair
But you don't care who you leave behind
In your sad affairs
But this new love ...
FIND YOURSELF ALONE

Drink up and pay and it's time to move on
This place is dying and they've turned the lights on
Nobody wants to hear the ravings of a bad drunk
They're afraid he'll speak their minds and say
That you'll find yourself alone
No matter who lives in your home
You better find yourself alone
My life's a car wreck on the side o f the road
Say nothing but you can't turn away
Not a pleasant subject, so ) don't blame you for turning away
It's the least you CQuid do anyway
Then you find yourself alone
No matter who lives in your home
You better find yourself alone
'Cause it doesn't matter-who you are
No it doesn't matter-what you make
Stand on your own or say goodbye
Goodbye
I watch myself laying on the floor
If there's pain here I can't feel it no more
If you're beautiful, if you're young
If your talents exceed your faults
Here's a reason to be selfish
You'll find yourself alone
No matter who lives in your home
You better find yourself alone
Cause you'll find yourself alone
No matter who lives in your home
You better find yourself alone
SPARROW

Despite what you have heard
You cannot cage this bird
The sparrow on the wing
Longs to hear you sing
Once you have opened your heart to its church
You find that the sparrow won't come to its perch
Tears in conceit
Narrow as your caged beliefs
If you must a**ume the rose may never bloom
Is creation such a fact?
Can it be taken back?
Once you have opened your heart to its church
You find that your heart won't come home to its perch
Years to complete
Arrow winds in two wounds deep
Once for those who put a size on love
Once for those who only look above for sideways eights
Once you have opened your heart to its church
You find that your heart has come home to its perch
REVEAL LOVE

There's so much pain
Pain behind us, behind beside us, pain through us
Pain to make us or erase our sense of trust
Pain to bring us close or to undo us
I wanted you
In truth I want you still
But you're so far away
Unless I play the rules by which you want to play
But then I feel you push me back
As if it's challenge that you lack
I say lover reveal love, never conceal love
I want you still
Lover be careful before you lose me
I won't be st ill
You're so alone
Do you deserve it I know you think so
Do you know what's real?
Are you afraid what something real could make you feel?
You stayed with him
On the losing side, you never gave in
But he's so far away
And if he didn't help you then, he won't today
And you're afraid to make the leap
But I only play my heart for keeps
I say lover reveal love, never conceal love
I want you still
Lover be careful before you lose me
I won't be still
I want you still
Or I could wait for you to come
To the realization
And say lover reveal love, never conceal love-I want you still
Lover be careful before you lose me-I won't be still
Cause I want you still-I want you still
UNIFORMS

Come all you scions of old-time Berlin
With nights of in tolerance soon to begin
Feel the lights dim
After the rally's done wolf becomes faun
Sharing a cigarette in your salon- he tries your boots on
Despite the times you feel quite liberal
You even prefer negro spirituals over Ophuls
Run for cover, you' ll find your lover there
As a shot splits the air
Tell me what you did there- alone or in pairs
With your body bare
Tell me how long you stared before you said yes
You must show no feelings for him tho' it's not fair
But these are the uniforms that we must wear
And you wouldn't dare to resist the order
The fighting is savage the contest is brief
The bloodshed is localized and yet you feel grief in that sweet relief
Run for cover ...
A war's a human thing and to each man it brings
The ability to walk in straight lines
But these lines, they can and do break
If only just to show there 's only so much loyalty a man can take
Loyal to his beliefs he wears what suits him 'til
He takes them off and shows, and shows what's underneath
A man who is most beautiful when he's free
Run for cover ...
TeU me what you did there alone or in pairs
Under a nom de guerre
TeU what you did to stop the nightmare
TeU me what you did there
Did to stop the nightmare?
Fortune prefers one who dares
TeU me what you did there
ONE MORNING
One morning when you wake up all a lone what do you see?
For walls and for your troubles one less friend awakens thee
Just because you would rather wake up alone
Doesn't mean that another lover's the worst thing you've known

Did no one ever hold you when you cried when you were small?
So now you hold yourself up like a star - outshine us all
Pretty soon pretty face pretty out of touch
The kind of thing when you lose it don' t miss it that much,
Not that much

Can't compete with you
Guess I'll be complete without you

One morning when you wake up wonder what
Will you do now
Free from despair you struggle for a cause
To now pursue
Never once did it cross your mind to see
That the author of happiness could be sad as me

Shed the old disguises - try your new luck on for size

One morning when you think you're all alone
Just wake me up
SPANISH WALTZ

All I was in front of you was half a face
Eyes held back I let you pass without a trace

But everyone comes to conclusions eventually
That maybe what you didn't want to show them is what they will see

All used up I let them take what was left
I a**umed that my good works had no effect
Buy my way, or beg to play it's all the same

But everyone comes to conclusions eventually
That maybe what you didn't think to show them
Is what they should see
Worse that could happen is that you would choose what to turn into
Turn into something that answers this question I offer to you

That's all that you had to say
FIREFLIES

In the jar there were fireflies
And when their bodies turned black you cried
Cursing someone who'd take away
The living things that you wanted for your play

On the beach there were pails and sand
A helium balloon tied to your hand
Now from the Hamptons to Hollywood
Your pleasure's not as free as it should be

In your life there are living dolls
They can't say no and you want them all
Feeling good as you stretch your claws
And take refreshments that make you pause
THE LOVER'S HYMN

It's true- I pray for you
But where it goes nobody knows
I pray for me too and we two
And anything that's gonna help it grow
Now I don't think for a minute that I know how these things work
But it don't matter it doesn't change
That I believe if God's a He or a She or a What
That it wants us to feel, feel what it feels
Every flower coming through your skin
Every breeze crossing your face
Every life being born in your arms
That's what they're calling love
That's what they're calling bliss
That's what they're calling joy and ecstasy
In perfect miniature a world on a grain of sand
Called a woman, called a man
That's why they call it love that's why they call it bliss
That's why they call it joy and ecstasy
And that's why I pray I want that to come our way
I want to know it every day that's why I pray
Now I'm not a fool! know bad things can happen
They usually do
But what choice to I have? Give up and give in?
Do all the things that all the broken people do?
If I reach out with my thoughts even if I think there's no one there
They're gonna land some time they're gonna land somewhere
And if they free me from the darkness, that's all they gotta do
It's not a service like paying a taxi fare
Are you there? Can you hear me? Are you with me?
Let me know if you're still listening
'Cause the best part's yet to come
'Cause I'm not giving up-if you do I'll hold you up
We're gonna get there if we crawl or if we run
It might be this life or the next or whatever fate thinks best
But there's something here that just can't be undone
And that's why I pray ...
HERE'S TO THE FUTURE

Here's to the future my friends - hope I can see you there
We'll have a drink together somewhere, somewhere
Here's to the future darlings- whatever may come to pass
I send you with my good graces and that's a fact
What have you got to lose? Whichever paths you choose
Keep in mind that the fates are kind if you let them be so
And I know you will
Here's to the future brothers-raise your cups in the air
Here's to the future sisters and all the unlikely pairs
What have you . ..
Keep in mind .. .
And I tell you no lies
Here's to the future my friends- and all that it holds in store
I hope that each day from now on holds more ...

HERE'S TO THE FUTURE

Here's to the future my friends - hope I can see you there
We'll have a drink together somewhere, somewhere

Keep in mind that the fates are kind if you let them be so

Here's to the future my friends- and all that it holds in store
I hope that each day from now on holds more ...

YOUR LOVE WON'T BE DENIED

I only called you to say I'm here
Why is talking your greatest fear?
Just abuse me I'm here
Do you remember you promised me
Just to be good and never leave
All I do now is grieve
Goodbye sweet love
Be gone from here
Be lost tonight
It's better to be alone
For you you're cover's blown
My love has been denied
My love has been denied
Oh I wish you'd demand of me
Did I tell you eternity's a shorter time for me?
Oh you won't dine with me
The knife and fork are complacency
You set the table for three
Goodbye sweet love
Be gone from here
Be lost tonight
Your cover has been blown
You're free to be a lone
But if you change your mind
Your love won' t be denied
A SHORT DRUM BREAK

instrumental
ANY SIGN AT ALL

Tell me what went wrong
Do you want me not to hear you when you cry?
Did you listen when he spoke?
Am I the question mark you hoped for? No?
Sorry
I'll go away
Don't come home early today
The b****** wasn't cool
Did he play you like a harbor to a fool?
Though your stomach wasn't in it
As he played you to your limits
As if having them's what mode you feel secure
You claim not to want me, are you sure?
Any sign at all, I'll dream it you'll live it
Any sign at all and I'll give it I'll give it
Any sign at all, if it's a sign of trouble
I won't stand in your way when it
Comes your turn to stumble

TOO TRUE

I can stand it no longer, I can't keep my tongue tied
I'm not one to silently pray
But you loved him first so of course I come second
But now I've come forth just to say
That I'm sick of my life, 'cause it 's always revolving
Around someone who's threatening to leave
I've been looking for something
From you who have nothing
Nothing to give or receive
And it's true, it's too true
So you'll go to him, and I'll never win
And I'll settle for somebody else
And make their life empty with my disappointment
That I wasn't the one who could help
Will we be 32 and just getting wasted
With whoever is left every night
And looking at successful couples with children
And thinking that could never be my life
I want a new deal I demand a rewrite
This script isn 't going my way
And I question the morals of the writer who tortures
Me as I inhabit their play
And it's true, it's true
The sick thing is I feel about you
The same way you feel about him
And it's wrong to give up when there's a glimmer of hope
That it won't work out or in your case it will
My heart is stocked like my parents' refrigerator
Just open it and eat your fill
But I grow back slower than an alpine meadow
But only in your footprints am I killed
And it's true, it's too true
Am I so bad?
