Track Name: Every Time I Cope
Oh I feel it
Time
It goes away

Oh my love
Feel it now
Why
Inside my skull

Every time I show, every time I see
All these foolish blokes
All these fools like me
Me

Every time I cope, every time I see
All these foolish blokes
All these fools like me
It's me

Oh I'm sure
You see through me
Oh it's cold
In here
I'll sleep

Oh my heart
Feel it beat
Free?
Isn't me
Or he

Every time I cope, every time I see
All these cruel assholes
Always cruel and free
Except me

Every time I show nothing pulls at me
Want to call it done
Want to make it be
For me

The light that breathes
The cold
The sea
The living trees
The whole
I believe
The whole of we
Of me
Track Name: Forgotten Songs
I don't forget a thing
I recall everything
Mountains are my home
Meadows are my bed
Forget the song you sing

This new one's everything

Forget the song you used to sing
This new one's everything
Turn around and trust me
This hurts more you than me

Keep a tally going
Pay the piper owing
Meadows are my thing
Better than mausoleums
So forget the song you sing
This new one's everything

Turn around and trust me

This new one's everything

Forget the song you used to sing
This new one's everything
Turn around and trust me
This new one's everything
Track Name: Reaching the Point
Oh I know this love will end with
One of those scenes
From the movies

Where one leaves happy
And one stays behind
To search the night sky
To pick up pieces

And I wish that you would see me again
In the skin and dreams of moon-white whales
'Til the sunrise on the brand new day
Will it rise on us once more again?

We are reaching the point of the end
We are reaching the end

And how did I reach
The point where it feels like heaven wrote me in the wrong movie?

But I'll keep dreaming
As fate keeps scheming
To push us aside
To keep us blind

And I wish that you would see me again
In the skin and dreams of moon-white whales
'Til the sunrise on the brand new day
Will it rise on us once more again?

We are reaching the point of the end
We are reaching the end
Track Name: Reasons Unknown
You keep your secrets closer
Than you keep you friends now

But when the secret gets out
Can you guess who's left then?

In the beating pulse of another night ending
We agree to false love
Daylight-love pretending

For reasons unknown
For reasons unknown

And Blood River fills and calling, rolling, tumbling
Over and over
Another greedy beast says
The world is over

But the birds sing it:
"Not another prophet!"
"Not another saviour!"

Not giving up
Not rolling over

In time
You'll find
Track Name: Car Crash Love
You said you would be mine forever
That's how your story goes
You said you'd never ever ever leave me
Oh no

And I wish that hearts could never break
Made of steel instead of flesh

And I wish that love was not a word you played games with

You said you would pick up all the pieces
No matter what it took

I know that you could never do it

This car crash love is off the road
Broken down and in the cold

You call the broken hearts of yesterday
Tomorrow's angels

But in this heart there is not one
Beat of love that's left for you

If it could it would bring down the sins
Of all you've done on you

You said you would be mine forever
Track Name: Mr. No
I know that you can put a stop to this
I know that you you can

Even though you say nothing
Even though you show nothing
I know that you are there

I know that we're a burden
So sweet

And bowed down we came to our freedoms
Our realities gone by

I know that our souls are so blind

And you know how the crown wears its king
And you know how flying goes without wings

Being so dumb how can we be wise?
Living so low how can we live high?

And I know that you can put a stop
To this

Even though you say nothing
Track Name: Leave the Ground
You're not quite straight
Not quite right in the head
But you might find love
You might find love

If you leave the ground
Away from the snake pits
You might find someone, somewhere
Far off from this cesspool

But your hands are tied
That look in your eye
Fork-tongued and ruby-eyed
Oh, you're sly
Sneaky guy

I'll just leave the ground
Leave alligator town

It takes a miracle to turn these dead-eyed ice age robots human for a while

Yeah I feel high

Do you feel the heartbeat of the nightmare
Coming round the bend there?

It is coming, it is coming
Down the street
And through your front door

It is coming, It is coming

I feel so high
I feel so high
I feel denied

If this good thing isn't right now
It feels good now
Is it right now?
If this good thing is a nightmare
Is it right now?
Track Name: Grass Underfoot
Don't know where my heart goes
Or that when I say these things
Do I feel I'm closer to you

I know why I feel strange
Like falling down a drain
Here they come the spins again

I don't want to feel this way again
I don't want to give my strength again

Spend it just like money gone to
Wasteful purposes that just don't make any sense
Silent
Silent

In silence

Like fear that comes inside your house at night
Then takes you away
Like eyes that see in the darkened conscience
Cut your empty way

It wouldn't be so hard if it were not so easy
I wouldn't think twice about it, but hey
Morality

Go away I don't want to see you at all
Make me feel like I don't live here anymore

When I walk into the room you stare at the wall
I ain't even a picture up there at all
Track Name: Oversoul
I'm sure there's a bit of mystery
A part in you, you and me
But what is it for us to judge?

I walk this backward sorrow
Of a feeling
Oversoul

So...

I wonder
Could this crestfallen soul
Jump the highest mountain
Track Name: Wishful Dandelions
You keep me back
I keep you back
But somehow we push forward

Treading sly
Through the night
Our histories left 'til tomorrow

I know why we graze sky
Like there's no tomorrow

Unbelievable reasons why this feeling will not subside from my life
Unbelievable prophecies that seem to cause us only more strife
Underscoring where we're going without knowing
Without knowing

Under the bridge
Over your heart
Will you take a walk tonight?

Superstitions breeding new religions
Smoking cigarettes with vampires in the night
In the night
Vampires in the night
Crying

Unbelievable times

When we're alone then I'm with you here until the end of time
Diamond-winged and soaring in the flame with peace of mind

Only when we're alone then will that feeling last the mirrored night
Diamond-winged we're more than children
How these things have lives
Until the end of time
