A Different Sky

So NaÔve to think it would stay the same
The words of older wiser people didnít change a thing
I enjoyed the years before but it will never be over
Different but still alive inside your brain 

[Chorus]
All Roads lead away from here
And the cars are all but gone
From the undiscovered place by others
Where we often stayed til dawn
When Isolation overtakes 
And you donít know youíre not alone
This is not a different sky we look upon

Time continues dragging me
To an unknown destination
But we control the stops along the way
Now I believe I understand
And I Understand that I believe
In being here, and higher power
And knowing true serenity

[Chorus]

Breathless Again

Thousands watch a frozen stare
Each set of eyes a strand of her hair
I wouldnít blink until I couldnít cry
Breathless again my tongue is tied
As she opens her mouth

[Chorus]
She's got me where she wants me
Just a line in the palm of the hand that feeds me
She's got me where she wants me
Just a line in the palm of the hand

She knows the sounds of my moving eyes
She loves the taste of my surprise
Clouds in her face bring giants down
Afraid the rain wonít hit the ground
As she opens her mouth

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

Cryptic

There was something in the tone
Where fear learns to hide
A voice on the phone
And ridiculous pride

The dimming of the blue
And the error of my ways
Live inside my head
In ridiculous displays

I smile in the photograph
With everybody else
And what you remember
Is never what you tell
If I am not to question
And you are not to blame
I will not accept this fate
From any other name

[CHORUS]
Iíll hide my face when the riots start
Iím not like you and I was trying way to hard
Silence from the rafters to the floor
I never wanted more
Than what I could give

Iíll save a prayer for aftermath
Though it isnít yet at hand
And Iím struggling with paragraphs
That I donít yet understand
I create a catalogue
Of days I would repeat
I could tell you while youíre on the phone
But your voice is growing weak
Just another weekÖ

[CHORUS]
Iíll hide my face when the riots start
Iím not like you and I was trying way to hard
Silence from the rafters to the floor
I never wanted more
Than what I could give

Iíll hide my face when I feel it start 
All too capable of going way to far
First in line, and first on the floor
I pray for a way to explain
What I could giveÖ

Crystal

Going through the motions
Denial is a crime
The strength of these potions
Should not be dismissed

You have got devotion
If I have got the time
To let you calm the ocean
And fill the abyss

The distance and infrequency
Leave us feeling cold
Events fall out of sequence
On these unpleasant trips

Unexplained delinquency
Unfamiliar cold, 
justified indecency
justified 

[CHORUS]
Now it seems my most Lucid dreams are leading back to the air you breathe
And clear as Crystal the insincere will pave the path of the fallen
Now it's clear that my deepest fear is leading back to the air I breathe
And clear as Crystal the insincere will pave the path of the fallen

Personal Infection
Picking at the scabs
There's a spy among us
Are you surprised

First and last impressions
So different and sad
Sorcery among us
Personalized

Frozen in a photograph 
thatís yellowing with age
this is not reality
and you will realize

Normalcy that makes us laugh
swallowed in the rage
this is reality 
hospitalized

[CHORUS]

[CHORUS]

Dark Side Down


Selfish black stupidity
Clots the places in my brain
Digging early graves for tomorrowís shallow water

Lost the words in the translation
Shame deceit humiliation
Always look the same in any language

I have decided
To keep the dark side down
I have decided
To keep the dark side down

[CHORUS]
Itís My Responsibility
To show some humility
And accept my imperfections of design
I know that this liberty
Does not come easily
But Iíll be able to look you in the eye

Finest clothes of moral fibre 
Dressing down into vagrancy
I wonít look back while Rome is burning

Welcome back to the master plan
Been gone awhile did you miss me?
With different decisions and careful precision
Back where I need to be 

[CHORUS]

I have decided
To keep the dark side down
I have decided
I have decided

[CHORUS]

Disconnected

Iím losing touch
Seven ways from yesterday
Feels like Iím floating away from the Earth
Nobody gives a second look

Something is different, Pulses are speeding
I donít know where you want me to stand
Iím trying
But Iím falling behind
One last time

The crooked art
Of casualties on canvas
Doesnít get me moving
Like the way it used to be
You donít have to tell me Iím melodramatic
I gave what I thought youíd want me to be
But now that Iím free and not so dependent
It feels so out of time

[CHORUS]
Like a beat from a drum
That is losing itís rhythm
Like an angel thatís hung over once again
Like a scene from a play 
Where the backgrounds are falling
Like crying on a line thatís disconnected

I wanted to thank you
For all that youíve done for me
And although it seems unexplainably lonely
I can feel something

There was a time when I could relate
Happy to be a shoulder to cry on
But this is not then Iíve come to discover
Weíre falling away

[CHORUS]

I thought I could make myself
Create myself remake myself
I thought I could be what you wanted me to be
I thought I could be
What you wanted me to be

[CHORUS]

Divisions

Flickering thoughts
Ribbons of film
Cutting room floors
Leave traces of memory

Iíve done nothing wrong
And blameless are you
Iím tired of thinking 
If youíre thinking of me

Seven Days Awake 
And my consciousness is thin
Divisions keep us far apart
When I want to let you in

And If you come before my eyes
Full of darkness and deceit
Iíll finally rest awhile and pray your soul to keep 

Heaven decides
This personal Hell
I feel forgiveness
Of you and myself

That single brief second
You allow to recall
My eyelids grow heavy
But never quite fall

Seven Days Awake 
And my consciousness is thin
Divisions keep us far apart
When I want to let you in

And If you come before my eyes
Full of darkness and deceit
IĎll finally rest awhile and pray your soul to keep
 
Seven Nights of wondering
If you still feel what you touch
Divisions manipulate my thoughts
But It doesnít help that much

And If you come before my eyes
Full of darkness and deceit
Iíll finally rest awhile and pray your soul to keep 

Lay Down Awhile
Sleep awhile with me
Lay down awhile
Stay a thousand nights with me

Everything's Cool

Reach out and touch the invisible wall
It's kind of up in the air I can feel it in your stare
I don't need much just the water and the air
And the moon in the rain and a smile on your face
Take me to the place where I am not the one

[Chorus]
Ask me the reason why the flowers are in season
And wait for you to tell me that everything's cool
Somewhere I can walk to instead of running on the spot
Push you to the side push you to the side
And I can feel it like a gun to my head.
Wakes me in a sweat and pulls me from bed
I need the key to everything (everything)

Don't look so hurt it's not your fault
I'm pushing myself
Try to get past everything everything
Leading me on when the ceiling falls
I thought you'd know know by now
I'm the one for

[Chorus]

[Chorus]  The key to everything

Fake ID's And Felonies
 
Freedom 
Is something that this life wonít entertain

Tying
It all to the ground
But you donít know the reason

That cup of coffeeís four days old
And you donít even blink
You and I could steal a car
And head for the border

[CHORUS]
Twenty-four hours to hit the freeway
Fake Ids and Felonies
This is fun letís do it over and over 
Somewhere we can find ourselves
And maybe see a roadside stand
Bring back a T shirt for the family
 
Picture It
I know it sounds a little dangerous

Iíll drive
You can find a place to hide the negotiables
 
It seems like only yesterday
I wanted to please them so bad
And now I just canít wait
For my debut on the news tonight

[CHORUS]
Twenty-four hours to hit the freeway
Fake Ids and Felonies
This is fun letís do it over and over again
Somewhere we can find ourselves
And maybe see a roadside stand
Bring back a T-shirt for the family

Twenty four hours to hit the freeway
Fake Ids and Felonies
This is fun letís do it over and over 
Somewhere we can find ourselves
I Know it isnít perfect
But thatís what human is

Somebodyís waiting
For opportunity
Somewhere people are waiting 
To live this dreamÖ

[CHORUS]

From The Ground Up

I was noticing you took another piece of me
I was thinking that I just might let you take it
I don't want to be the great pretender any more
I don't want to hide behind the guise of unlocked doors

Heart

Don't fall don't blink
Don't speak don't breathe
Don't eat don't look
Don't slip don't sleep
Don't cry don't bleed just follow me
And slip inside the lines you see
Don't lose your pride or swallow mine
Don't shake don't panic to pass the time
Don't think don't wink when you start to sink
This is how we're meant to be

Don't doubt burn out
Jump ship don't trip
Stand straight be late
Don't feel restraint
Don't laugh out loud or talk in crowds
This is how we're meant to be
Don't touch so much you lose the rush
Don't kiss dismiss don't ever miss
Don't hurt be curt don't ever say
This is how we're meant to see...

One of the things that you want me to do
When I say you don't want but 
Why do you let me take it away

One of these things that you want and expect
That I know I don't to get but
Why do you take it away
 
Inhale

She's a dirty girl
And she likes to (likes to)
She likes to feel like she is one of us
I don't know what to think
Should I take a drink or walk away sober

Time doesn't always tell when there's souls to sell
You're always right on time
High on their horses they stay the course
But it's over it's over now

[Chorus]
Waiting to feel you
I miss you inhale you
I love you I pray for you
I kiss you I fail you
[Repeat]

Tell me what you want do you even know
You don't have to tell me
You fill your lies with head
Is it what your fed
And I'll still be your friend

[Chorus x 2]

[Chorus]
I'm waiting...
I'm waiting......

Hypocrite

Certain things require a sense of timing i seem to lack
When I dance around you it feels like Two left feet...falling
I just canít keep a straight face when I lie to you anymore
Look me in the eyes now, speak the truth

[CHORUS]
I'm a Hypocrite
I'm the first to admit
I'm a Hypocrite
Just like you and all our friends
I'm not ashamed of it
It's something you just have to expect
Everyone
Everywhere
Who are we to argue with ourselves

Impossible, this illusion never ends
Everybody knows exactly what the hell is going on
The past doesn't matter and now I speak my mind
People arrive at their own conclusions no matter what I say, I say

[CHORUS]

Its so peaceful
when we're asleep at night
In the dark I can be Brutal
Honesty unrestrained for no one else to hear...

[CHORUS]

Liquid Sun

Leave the car and let me drive
I need to put some miles between
Where we live
And where we lie
I want to see things never seen
I feel like a brand new man
Waking up today for the first time
There never really was a chance
To gather all the pieces

[CHORUS]

Down a brand new road to nowhere
All that I can see
Liquid sun that cools my skin at 98 degrees
Through the seasons in between
The ones we live and breathe
Spring and summer winter fall
Are all the same to me

Whatís the price of memories
That you take out of my mind
Kept all the ones I could see
I would have looked Ďtil I was blind
There will be no suffering 
Just the rain on my face tonight
There will be no fear to bring
For a light so bright

[CHORUS]

Metamorphosis

Inside the rose I feel like a brand new being
But only when you're around
Even all your darkest moments, beauty is worth seeing
When the sun goes down

[CHORUS]
And I lie next to you
Breathe what you breathe
Watch you're while you're sleeping
The sound it comforts me

I'll talk to you
What you see what you see
We can say time doesn't mean a thing
But we know that is just a dream

[CHORUS]

Needful Things
 
Feeling empty
Swallowed in the fray
Need a little something
To define yourself

I canít put my finger on it
But it has to be exciting
Yeah it, has to be exciting

I canít put my finger on it
Finger on the pulse
But something dark is coming
Coaxing, reeling and releasing

Define these days with holidays
And glimmer on your hands
Affordable to all, if your chute
Will take the greasing  

[CHORUS1]
You want it you got it
So just sign away
All the things you believe
And all the things that you say
You need it so bad
Youíve just got to have it
So get down on your knees (and pray)

The Man in the store
On the corner has it in
The cure for arthritis
And a picture of Elvis

It can calm the ripple
On a soulís shallow waters
Yours for a song and a favour

There are no possessions but 
Possession of the devil
Not the one down below
But the devil you know

Voices in your head will
Taste the words that they have bled
A curious infection
Of a common disease
 
[CHORUS1]

[CHORUS2]
You want it you got it
Just sign away
Everything that you love
And everything thatís okay
You need it so bad
Now that you have it
What are you going to do on Judgement Day?

Killing off the conscience
Is a bloody piece of work
Cleaning up the mess can take forever

On to the next town
Gone without a trace
Without a soul
Without a clue

[CHORUS2]

Rewind

Transcontinental flights are landing and
Leaving above my head
The last thing I wanted to think of
Was ever to think of leaving here 

Morning touch me with cold fingers
With reality I bruise in its grip
The colours that filled me with wonder
Today seem to make me sick

[CHORUS]
And It tricks my mind 
A thousand times
And reaches into something
Iím not sure I remember 

In rewind
Itís more defined
I wish that you could see this
But Iím so far behind


Counting the hours of solitary
Soon they will become days.
As my prescription of strong denial
Is nearing the end of its phase.

Searching for something to blame you for 
To deceive the course of the pain I feel
coming up empty,  I always knew
I always knew

[CHORUS]

[CHORUS]

Sentiment

Feel the cold 
Walk away
Choose your words 
Carefully
Donít underestimate this

Thereís no time
For us to stay
Said our goodbyes 
Anyway
Weíll come back reinvented

Nothing to hold onto here
Bonds that arenít connecting
A quarter second to decide
Where your sun is setting

Eyes are crystal
theyíre wet
made to look like 
A defect
Lets the poison out slowly

I am them
And you are mine
Take a breath
Thereís still time
I hope you donít become me

Eagerness will make us 
both fall underfoot
Wait for the chance to 
make bad things good

(The World falls)
And nothing around us changes 
(We could be so much more)
If we were somewhere else
Do you comprehend the
Sentiment Iím getting at?

(Lie awake)
while the prying eyes are sleeping
(leave behind) 
All expectations but our own
I just want to take a step away
 
Clocks will laugh 
in the face
good intentions
Now erased
It was noble for a while

Nothing else 
can be done
Two were here
Now are gone 
In the blink of an eye 
 
Build you up just to see me fall trying to catch you
Build you up just for the fun 

(The World falls)
And nothing around us changes 
(We could be so much more)
If we were somewhere else
Do you comprehend the
Sentiment Iím getting at?

(Lie awake)
while the prying eyes are sleeping
(leave behind) 
All expectations but our own
I just want to take you away 
From this place for awhile

Suburban Cowboy

Do you want to think do you want a soul
Need to hear your voice and to feel control
To feel alive again do you need to be the same
You're sucked inside the suburban swirl
Lights go out at ten in this strip mall world
Can you feel new again or do you need to be the same

[Chorus]
Show 'em what you got show 'em what you got
Suburban cowboy
You're a white bred rebel with a score to settle
Revolution in your backyard
Show 'em what you got show 'em what you got
Suburban cowboy
Scared little man with piece in his
In the brand name camouflage

Bored as hell try to shake things up
Carbon copy form hides the moral corrupt
Whenever you break away
You're never going home again
You didn't know bad could be this fun
American pie in the bank with a gun
Didn't mean to hurt anyone
But you came undone

[Chorus]
[Chorus]

SuperUtopia

What more can I say
In this moment of silence
The loss of you
Still echoes through my mind

Tension rains down
I remember you conceding
Be honest for our sake tonight

[CHORUS] 
I was there
I could see it
I donít know who you think youíre talking to
(I was someone who thought I could make a difference in the end)

I was never
Going  to be
The missing piece from your perfect world 
(I wasnít the first and I wonít be the last)

Changing your mind
Can be so complicated
Itís been a very long time

Iím not thinking clearly
Bruised and separated
I just canít judge
Whatís not a crime

[CHORUS]
[CHORUS]
