Faith lies in
The ways of sin
I chased the charmed
But I don’t want them anymore
And in their eyes I was alive
A fool’s disguise
Take me away from you
Shame my tongue
Fat with promise all along
But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I’d ever been
When you decide
That your life is a prize
Renew and revive
It’s alright honey
It’s alright, yeah
Happiness will make you wonder
Will I feel OK?
It scares the disenchanted
Far away
Yeah I want something new
But what am I supposed to do about you
Yeah I love you, it’s true
Life’s a bummer
When you’re a hummer
Life’s a drag
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Do you feel
Love is real?

You’re gonna walk on home

You’re gonna walk alone

You’re gonna see this through

Don’t let them get to you

Shame

Love is good and love is kind

Love is drunk and love is blind

Love is good and love is mine

Love is drunk all the time

Shame

You’re gonna walk on home

You’re gonna walk alone

You’re gonna walk so far

You’re gonna wonder who you are

Shame

Love is good and love is kind

Love is drunk and love is blind

Love is good and love is mine

Love is good all the time

Hello goodbye

You know you made us cry

Time is never time at all

You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth

And our lives are forever changed

We will never be the same

The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe

That life can change, that you’re not stuck in vain

We’re not the same, we’re different tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

And you know you’re never sure

But you’re sure you could be right

If you held yourself up to the light

And the embers never fade in your city by the lake

The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe

In the resolute urgency of now

And if you believe there’s not a tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

We’ll crucify the insincere tonight

We’ll make things right, we’ll feel it all tonight

We’ll find a way to offer up the night tonight

The indescribable moments of your life tonight

The impossible is possible tonight

Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

We’ll wander off through the dead of night
Past wastelands of shattered souls
Warm by my firelight
I peer into the darkness alone
As the Indian Summer of my remembrance
Settles on my bones
Cracked and weary, I ask for direction home
Home, let the word spill from my mouth
Love, love is everything I want
I’m one of many more to come
Love, love is everything I want
Crossroads outside of town
The heartbroken faces shine
The city lights so far and dull
Turning left I know it’s time
With an urgent wind upon my rolling heals
To carry me along
My face downcast, I turn to ruins past and home
Home, let the word spill from my mouth
Love, love is everything I want
I’m one of many more to come
Love, love is everything I want
We’ll wander off through the dead of night
Past terrors and broken homes
Wipe the sleep from under your eyes
Of riverbanks and catacombs
Sleep into the bee and the sea
I was to live this life alone
Lay down Caligula
Cry out, I know it’s time
Love is everything I want
Love is everything I want
Love is everything I want
Love is everything I want

To the center of the earth
Or anywhere god decides
Full of fever pulling forth
We hear our call as all
And to the center of the earth
As if written in
And dna is reaching out
To your frequency
I want to live
And don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
All in prayer
Prayer in all
All are scared
Scared of all
Black rooms are calling
To men in leather coats
White labs are cooking
Up the silver ghost
The glass migrates under
Her translucent skin
And all the spiders wonder
What we’ve got us in
All is you
You are all
All with you
You in all
I want to live
I don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
So, it’s all very obtuse
Because it’s all like, like, I don’t know
So, like, I started thinking
That everything I operate on
Is based on what I believe god was telling me to do
God could be my intuition or whatever
But I always assume
I always assume that the voice I hear is the voice of god
Then I started thinking
What if I’m insane
So I’m operating on the premise
That I’m hearing the voice of god
Or what I perceive to be god speaking to me
Or through me
But maybe I’m completely in…
So all my…
Demagoguery in my life about me thinking that my life has importance
My, my..
Thinking that my life has importance
My, my, my thought of it
And the fact that I believe that I’m following my intuition
Which in and of itself may be completely false
So then I started freaking out thinking…
Of itself may be completely false
And again this creature that believes that he’s acting upon
Heavenly intuition, but meanwhile he’s totally rampant
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
So beats the final coda
Of our vinyl storm
One more cherry cola
To lift up her dead arms
A dream of soft focus sunsets
Filters through the din
We are losing contact
As she dials it in
She can hear glass calling
Or is it someone that looks like him
She eyes TV reflection
And nods a knowing look
She says it doesn’t matter
She’d never liked her looks
I have seen a thousand fractures
I have seen everything
Cause knowing is its own answer
Love something in a book
There’s not much left to ponder
Not much left to cook
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders, oh

This is the song I’ve been singing my whole life

I’ve been waiting like a knife

To cut open your heart

And bleed my soul to you

I did it all for you

You and you and you and you

This is the sound I’ve been making my whole life

I’ve been waiting for this night

To clear up all the talk

Although I’m selfish to a fault

Is it selfish, it’s you I want

You, I did it all for you

This love will stand as long as you

There’s really no excuse

I did it all for you

These are the tears I’ve been crying my whole life

Like an ocean of desire

I’m reaching through the noise

Across the dusk of time

Within the lilting lights

I am singing out to you

You wrap your arms around
A feeling that surrounds
Like a liquid peppermint
Just taste the drinks that she served
And this feeling shivers down your spine
Love comes in colors I can’t deny
All that matters is love, love, your love
You’re sleeping in your bed
Just rest your weary head
Maybe you shouldn’t care
Throw away those dreams and dare
And I wonder if it matters to me
Love comes in colors I can’t deny
All that shimmers is love, love, your love
Your love
Your love

Should I know all we’re missing

What’s to stop what they’re missing

To feel love, to be in love

All around

Anyone can hold a promise

Not everyone can feel honored

To be in love, to feel love

All around

Turn me on, hear me speak

Let me be what I need

You’re enough for me

Many times while you sleep

I’m dreaming of what to keep

To know your wish, hold it true

To slay the things that trouble you

Turn me on, out of reach

Listen here, feel me

Just believe, just believe

You’ll see

To feel love, to be in love

All around

Hold the truth if you want it

If you don’t, I won’t flaunt it

To feel love, to be in love

All around

When you’re young you can promise

Anything that you wanted

To be in love, to feel love all around

Turn me on, let me speak

From my heart, I receive

Plain happiness, just happiness

You and me

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

All around

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

Around

I know your wish, I hold it true

(Feel love around)

To hide the things that trouble you

(Feel love around)

Turn me on out of reach

(Feel love around)

Let me speak all my peace

(Feel love around)

Just believe what you keep

(Feel love around)

You’ll never need to hurry me

(Feel love around)

To be in love, to feel love

All around

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

All around

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

All around

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out
I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face
Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I’ll tear my heart out
Before I get out
Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings
Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you
Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

If life is my witness
Love is my song
If nothing means no one
Then blank, I belong
If fear conquers easy
I can lead on
Milk from the flower
Blood from the dawn
So here we are
Upon your stage
The laughs we shared
The dreams we saved
Bleeding the orchid
We’re bleeding the orchid
Bleeding the orchid
Blessed my weakness
Blessed my wrongs
As hate forms the sequence
Of one by one
As freedoms die easy
We suffrage the want
There’s clouds in my shower
Ghosts in my arms
Youth is where you are
Faith some sinner’s child
We’re bleeding the orchid
We’re bleeding the orchid
Bleeding the orchid
Gilded art this silent march past triumph thru alarm
So thus charmed
Does this will stand for much?
But heart’s untouched by heart’s unloved
Bleeding the orchid
Here we are
Upon your stage
The love we share
The dreams we’ll save
They’re bleeding the orchid
They’re bleeding the orchid
They’re bleeding the orchid
They’re bleeding the orchid

Tired eyes

Closed for days

There’s no regret

‘Cause there’s no place

I don’t know

What I believe

But if I feel safe

What do I need

A home

A home

A home

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do to me

What will they do to me

What will they do to me

What will they do to me

Dulcet tongues

Whisper fast

The future yearns

Right now’s the past

Rouse me soon

The end draws nigh

Who’s side are you on?

Your blood you cannot buy

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do to you

Well I

I feel alright

So tonight

I got to ask you why

Why deny it

It’s no surprise

I’ve got to survive

Freedom shines the light ahead

I’ll lead the last charge to bed

I said my last rights

I don’t have to run scared no more

Fight

I wanna fight

I wanna fight a revolution

Tonight

I wanna fight

I wanna fight a revolution

Tonight

At the light

At the light

Do you wanna watch me die

Let me be something good

Let me prove something real like I should

Let me embrace every single living thing

Let me be every single moment I ever misunderstood

Speak to me in a language I can hear
Humour me before I have to go
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
As the cluttered streets greet me once again
I know I can’t be late, supper’s waiting on the table
Tomorrow’s just an excuse away
So I pull my collar up and face the cold, on my own
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk
Steeple guide me to my heart and home
The sun is out and up and down again
I know I’ll make it, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you
And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I’ve journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I’m ready to return
I’ll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
Tomorrow’s just an excuse
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you

My daydream seems as one inside of you

Though it seems hard to reach through this life

My daydream screams bitter 'til the end

The love I share -true- selfish to the heart

My heart, my sacred heart

I don’t want to fight

Every single night

Everything I want is in your eyes

You and me go back

To places I dont know to care

The spoils of all I got were left for scraps

Don’t let me say this

But you’re no worse than me

It’s crazy

We are the real

If real ever was

And just because

We are the real

They feel we have enough

We are the real

‘Cause someone gave us up

I want to be there when you’re happy

I want to love you when you’re sad

Cant stand the morning rain?

Get out i’ll take your place then

Can’t stand the blazing sun?

Then close your eyes you’ll see

The angel dust

I dont want to be

Anything believed

A million watts of sound can’t compare

Come along you’ll see the world

The pulse ripples, the crowd unfurls

The current starts to flow and then you’re on

Oh it’s white hot soul they want

To sing for

We are the real

If real ever was

And just because

We are the ruin

Of every living soul

We are surreal

Cause someone gave us up

Don’t break the oath

I want to love you when you’re happy

Don’t break this oath

I want to be there when youre sad

Freeze-frame the pouring rain

We are the real

As real as any ghost

So easy now

We are the real

In ever living soul

Oh dont they know?

Can’t stand the blazing sun?

Can’t stand the morning rain?

Oh get out i’ll take your place again

I dont want to be alone

I dont want to be alone at all

If it’s a white hot soul they want

Then a black heart they’ll get

It’s early morning
The sun comes out
Last night was shaking
And pretty loud
My cat is purring
And scratches my skin
So what is wrong
With another sin
The bitch is hungry
She needs to tell
So give her inches
And feed her well
More days to come
New places to go
I’ve got to leave
It’s time for a show
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
My body is burning
It starts to shout
Desire is coming
It breaks out loud
Lust is in cages
Till storm breaks loose
Just have to make it
With someone I choose
The night is calling
I have to go
The wolf is hungry
He runs the show
He’s licking his lips
He’s ready to win
On the hunt tonight
For love at first sting
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

And if I fall into you all

Will my rain cease and dissolve

Some come to harm, others to grace

So let my friends fly under these wings

We’re giving it up to the sun

We’re giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up to the earth

Giving it up from our room

Know when there’s nowhere to run

Know when there’s not much to lose

Sometimes it seems so long

Since you had a chance to refuse

We built a fire

Winterlong

Transform to iron

Winterlong

I was the first one

I was the last one to be strong

And if I fall into you all

Will the silence shatter and stall

Some feel movement, others stand still

So let the moment become my will

We’re giving it up to the sun

We’re giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up to the earth

Giving it up from our rooms

Know when there’s nowhere to run

Know when there’s not much to lose

So why does it take so long

To find out who is who

We built a fire

Winterlong

Transform to iron

Winterlong

I was the first one

I was the last one to be strong

We’re giving it up to the sun

Giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up the the earth

Giving it up from your room

We’re giving it up to the sun

Giving it up to the moon

They say that life ain’t easy

They’ll say your life’s a crime

Destroy up all good reason

How I’m alive

They’ll say that nothing matters

Not even your will to survive

Of course I love you baby

‘Cause I’m alive

Yes, I’m alive

Whenever I call you out

Whenever I draw you round

Whenever is here and now

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way I care

You should call on me baby

I’m always there for you

Yeah, I’m always there for you

They’ll say you’ll lose your nerve soon

To claim identity

Disgrace our sacred promise

With no belief

Oh, how I believe in you

That’s the way my love is, for you

That’s the way my love is, for you!

I feel a coming age now

I feel a dawn in me

A certain sun keeps rising

On my belief in you

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way i care

You should call on me baby

All hands on deck

Setting sail to get wrecked off course

You make what you want of me

I will keep you anyway

Let’s fill these hours and kill desire

Let’s fill these hours and kill desire

I’m in touch with you

Let’s kill these hours and fill desire

Every turn is torture thought

Every kicking of the drum

I’ve seen the film

I know the place

I’m never lost

There’s just one way across

I’m never lost

Headlights shoot north

The ends of earth off course

Of course

If you think just right

If you’ll love you’ll find

Certain truths left behind

All this is that once forgot

A closing down of the gate

But oh these hours

I lost my place

I’m never lost

There’s just one way

There’s no disgrace in failing me

Let’s kill these hours and fill desire

No matter where you are

I can still hear you when you drown

You've traveled very far

Just to see you I'll come around

When I'm down

All of those yesterdays

Coming around

No matter where you are

I can still hear you when you dream (on some versions, "scream")

You traveled very far

You traveled far, like a star

And you are

All of those yesterdays

Coming around

Is it something someone said?

Was it something someone said?

Yesterday the sky was you

And I still feel the same

Nothing left for me to do

And I still feel the same

I wish, I wish I could fly

I wish, I wish I could lie

I will, I will try

I will, I will
