I still believe in the beauty of this world Nothing it can do will change my mind When I see crowds blank faced surround me I pray a wakeup call soon arrive For these things effect us all Paying option to them is not optional Yeah these things effect us all Better speak up now than what your back's against the wall We'll all unite for now We really have no choice No time for apathy It's the only way we're granted a voice I don't blame you for wanting to give in While it seems the likes of us we never win Through the fog of ancient mystery Today yesterday's losers will rewrite history Yeah these things effect us all But you're right when you say "They're all the same These things do not effect them at all If they won't share the burden then why should we share the blame?" We'll all unite for now We really have no choice No time for apathy It's the only way we're granted a voice

I'll let her speak in my voice I drew the picture back to front I don't see these things so well I'll let her speak in my voice I'll let her see through my eyes I'll let her taste through my mouth We don't understand? Oh well "I don't know the new colours names" It's not she doesn't want to explain It's just hard to write it down, to express it in words I'll let the girl speak in my voice I don't know what she'll say I don't know if she'll stay She may even stay silent yet I'll let the girl use my voice To tell us what she is A third person character sketch Someone else drew back to front Her voice is stuck in my throat

You don't have to touch it to know it's there And boy you haven't changed much Besides your hair Let's enjoy the moment, ain't this fun This is a reunion, the night's still young Yeah this is our reunion, sing along Just for a moment, pretend it's fun This night's young.... I saw you in the distance We should catch up "But I don't have the time, Dan" I made that up You didn't really say that But you would've done if I'd actually approached you I was too scared But you don't have to touch it to know it's there And I don't have to see you, to know you care I'll always care

Never Enough 05:04
So get it through your head that I'm not your saviour And I never will be I can't help you feel, I can't catch you when you fall You know it kills me But there's a limit to the times I can hear you whine Before I go When you find I'm not there I no longer care Don't say I never told you so Never enough Between the jump and the landing We fell out of time Between the start and the ending Without reason or rhyme Can you take me back to when I was beautiful Take me back to then I was on your mind, now I'm never enough Never enough Your lips are tight shut but your eyes are snitches Something about you beguiles and bewitches I'm frozen to the touch, but you touch too much And now I'm never, I'm never enough If all I am is a toy to you Remember if you break it you must take it home with you And I've got nothing left to lose Before making accusations make sure they're true It's never enough

All the mighty will look upon our work And they'll despair I'll indulge myself then I'll be crying too As he's not there And were the Gods jealous of his face Of his smile, style, natural charm and grace When last we met by the frozen river Was it the cold or beauty made me shiver? After the quiet comes a storm After the quiet comes a storm Closer to the marbled swarm After the quiet comes a storm You and I my love in many ways We're very much the same In ways that friends don't say So loved and lost or fucked and forgotten You're an imprint on my DNA Those artisan hands will send me to hell Un petit mort, and more and more No I don't smoke but if you hold it to my lips Then I could learn My fingers burn After the quiet comes a storm After the quiet comes a storm Closer to the marbled swarm After the quiet comes a storm - Vocoder -

Rune Cloud 01:58
The sad moon is punctured And I watch you dance To spectral chimes Stuck in honey Honey stuck Honey stuck Open the lunar wound Honey stuck This great grey eyeless world sighs Blood red and steeple dark The rune cloud shows your name Meandering into mine This great grey eyeless world sighs Blood red and steeple dark The rune cloud shows your names Closely intertwined You fold your hands and the world disappears.

Disconnect 07:17
No means no and sometimes so does yes Have you got any sins you're willing to confess Nothing more than matters of the flesh My motives - you can probably guess Silver's sexy, gold corrodes Power corrupts and lust eats the soul Nothing more than matters of the flesh Expect nothing less I disconnect from you And it all makes sense I disconnect from you And our thought condense Now I'm fantasising, memorising someone we both loved Words fall in error we are badly dubbed Fantasising, realising, I've been unfairly snubbed We are baldy dubbed It started out as a smirk It ends as a grin It's harder and harder for me to find A truly original sin I disconnect from you And it all makes sense I disconnect from you And our thought condense

No soul just pure technique The written word it's meaning plain oblique Just makes so little to me Sex is violence violence sex The ideals of the dispossessd Lithium no fun but it serves the purpose Of keeping you too numb to care what depths you plumb Help me I'm falling my mind is calling I think my mind is calling out to me But I'm here lost at sea All surface, no real feeling Look what they've done to you Comatose contemplate the ceiling Born with one skin too few All surface and no real feeling Break your will, call it healing Girls like me are sometimes boys Genre and gender are just our toys Sexuality is making me sick Put the blade in my hand, cut myself to the quick Boys like me are sometimes girls Don't forget this our world Girls like me are sometimes boys Don't forget - there is no choice All surface, no real feeling Look what they've done to you Comatose contemplate the ceiling Born with one skin too few All surface and no real feeling Break your will, call it healing All surface, no real feeling Look what they've done to us Medicate, call it healing The natural urge combusts

The temperature's rising Defences are falling Like a siren your beauty is calling me Leading me onward to die on your rocks I have no choice but to keep my door locked (unlocked) Temperature's rising Defences decrease Your call like a siren will it never cease Leading me onward toward certain doom I have no choice but to stay in this room Choking on the dry ice Everyone's got their price There's a vacant look in your eyes I've been dreaming of Unhealthy fixation Half heard conversation Add to my vexation, what is going on Please tell me You think you've got it all Do you know what comes before a fall (I'm not the one you love, tell me) Does your skin ever itch and you want to peel it off Does your skin ever itch and you want to peel it off Feel the circuitry between you and me Choking on the dry ice Everyone's got their price Can you tell me yours so I know where I stand Strobe lit degradation Half heard conversation Add to my vexation You leave with a woman.....

The Rain 04:21
Say goodbye, goodbye to the horizon Say goodbye, say goodbye to the sea Say goodbye, wipe the tears from your eyes And then say goodbye, goodbye to me Say goodbye, say goodbye to the ocean A fond farewell for the shifting sand Say goodbye to the outdated notion Any of this is still in our hands There'll be a flood, and no one'll survive It'll rain all night Can you see, can you see Can you see it coming down from the sky It'll rain all night When the dying sun paints our sickly faces red And all turns to ash here below When the grinding pulse of industry finally stops dead After the fire will come the deepest snow There'll be a flood, and no one'll survive It'll rain all night Can you see, can you see Can you see it coming down from the sky It'll rain all night

May you sleep and never dream Never dream, forever sleep May your night be endless I hope you find some peace I'll see you on the other side I'll see you in the light I'll see you in the milky way See you in velvet night When I have to go I swear I'll let you know When I have to go You'll be the second to know When it is my time, it comes no warning one day Ease your mind May you sleep and never dream Nightmares a thing of the past The band is playing your closing theme Soon you'll be free at last You'll hear me in the milky way You'll hear me in the thunder Leave me now forget my fate You'll see me in your slumber When I have to go I swear I'll let you know When I have to go You'll be the second to know When it is my time, nature can be unkind Ease your mind

I lost my heart on the burning sand Watched all my heroes becoming brands Watched all my heroes becoming bland Becoming their own cover bands I feel so hollow, tell me what to swallow Ecstasy smile turns rictus grin I ache too much to let you in I yearn to peel off this stupid skin Really let the fun begin I feel so hollow, tell me what to swallow I need a leader, someone to follow
