Saturation 03:39
These empty days have made me realize There's nothing I can cling to Read the news, police my queue And round and round it goes One decade pile up on another And fashion a passion pose Gotta take back this space yeah I lost my soul while seeking it Such to sever the link that goes through this mind Cold hands across my heart I hear their voices through the dark Thought I could leave it all behind But they're still with me all the time And when I think I've reached the bottom The floor it falls beneath me Lock the door, connect the cord And round and round it goes There's just too much out there to uncover Information overload
Endgame 04:36
Mama told you everything around is unsafe And papa told you all you're gonna be is a waste Teachers taught you everything is under control And where it got you boy you know you'll never know Cause it's all endgame, blood all the same Gazing out through empty windows Pack your suitcase, no returning home Your lovers left you, washed away by the rain Sayin' nothing, only it was time for a change Sitting, stranded, starin' up at the sky Little wonder how life has passed you by If mama told you yes you're gonna be a star And papa told you son I know that you'll go far And people heard the music from miles around It'd still mean nothing, only make a different sound
Sarah 03:12
When I saw her standing there All in focus, I became aware The light was blinding but I couldn't look away I may have been talking but had nothing to say Sarah Can't you off my mind girl I don't wanna live without your love Sarah Why'd you have to leave me I'm dancing all alone, my eyes on the door We danced for an hour I somehow caught her name The night was ours The song the same I was holding her close But somehow she slipped away Was it really for real? Was it how I'm supposed to feel? My body it burns I was so sure she'd return But the moment has been I'll never see her again
You're going to age But you won't be alone
Wait It Out 04:24
I got a woman, she makes me so down Carry our burdens heavier through town We want an answer, so we'll wait a long long time The sun now rising, and we still drag ourselves around I wait it out, hold it close Wait it out and watch it go Another woman, plaintive eyes from long ago But I couldn't, though the feelings were so strong I seen her by the way She lies beside me, all thoughts escape Awake in silence, every breath I take
Monster 03:45
I used to be this way, I used to get upset Run on purpose to the place that I was trying to forget My head all in a shuffle and a feedback loop There's a monster in the bedroom, he's a bastard he's a brute I could lose all the weight from crying Time, you knew how it always could be Time, I knew how it always should be All of the good things, all the world that you mean I would be yours underwater I would be yours on an altar I would give you more, more than I could give
I'll have to volley into the night I want to feel the people and the lights But see me standing on my own, a fugitive Standing out the discotheque I can't bring myself to go inside Even if I wanted to, I'd crumble You arrive just after 1:00 And I'd love to take you by the hand But always something sinister Panic takes its hold on me The paralytic four-on-the-floor So darling I'll just watch you go Hold me, hold me tightly Press your body against the wall Got a little lover, a miser I got a feeling that girl will block out your world And your eyes fail to see the picture before you Volley into the night And everything will be alright I'm fine just walking on my own Standing out the discotheque I can't bring myself to go inside Even if I wanted to, I'd crumble
Oh my love, you're my only pleasure From far above, I touch our lips together I got more, more than you could ever ask for I'd be your sorry girl, I would be your cruel master For your love On and on and on and rattle on I got my finger on the trigger got my teeth around my tongue I got your cell phone number, got your home address I read your favourite books, I buy your brand of cigarettes I got a warrant for your love In this world, there are cold and colder places There are sad and well-worn faces, their stories never told But you, my love, I see that our future is together And we'll live alone forever, transcend this misery Warrant for your love She's never found, I'm all at the teeth I'm going to the bold, I'm all attitude
Nonstop 04:24
We've been coming for a long time Signs of trouble all across the line And we're lucky just to be standing here The sun is shining and we find ourselves standing here And when we let up it will be for death Through all the guilt and the washed-out lies A constant rhythm can't be disguised And when we let up it will be for death
