Young Modern Station

Stalled at young modern station
Arthritic conversation
Life has a dead line lately
Allergic and in the news

The clocks are ticking timeless
Dead Dali days behind us
The band is back together
Allergic and in the news

Does it make you cry
When I make you feel so far away
The interviews over
Stuck to the goal
To rescue my skin

I need a different liquor
So sick of getting sicker
And Iím moving back to the country
Allergic and in the news

Does it make you cry
When I make you feel so far away
The interviews over
Stuck to the goal
To rescue my skin
Youíre so far away
The interviews over

He dreams of tracks and choices
I think Iím hearing voices

Does it make you cry
When I make you feel so far away
The interviews over
Stuck to the goal
To rescue my skin
Youíre so far away
The interviews over



Straight Lines

Breathing from a hole in my lung
I had no one
But faces in front of me
Racing through the void in my head
To find traces of a good luck academy

Sparks ignite and trade them for thought
About no one
And nothing in particular
Washed the sickened socket and drove
Resent nothing
Thereís good will inside of me

Wake me up lower the fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine

Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately Iím a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line

Something I will never forget
I felt desperate
And stuck to the marrow
Invisible to everyone else
Iím a sex change
And a damsel with no heroine

Wake me up lower the fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine

Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately Iím a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line

I donít need no time to say
Thereís no changing yesterday
If we keep talking and
I keep walking in straight lines

Wake me up lower the fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine

Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately Iím a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line



If You Keep Losing Sleep

If you keep losing sleep over other lovers
If you keep losing me youíre gonna be bored
If youíre up chimney sweep under rubble covers
If you keep counting sheep and being adored

Youíre a tombstone in the mud
Playing twister in a bubble again
I need a breath a wind so pure
To dry up the mud over me
To be reborn not born again
Erase my regret from the start
Shot the model
Flaking temporary skin youíre no burden
Such reduction
Such seductive silent wine hop scotch trigger

If you keep losing sleep over other lovers
If you keep losing me are you gunna be
If youíre up chimney sweep under rubble covers
If you keep losing me

Youíre a tombstone in the mud
Playing twister in a bubble again
If you keep losing sleep over other lovers
If you keep losing me youíre gonna be
If you keep losing sleep over other lovers
If you keep losing me



Reflections Of A Sound

In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound

I know itís been far too long in stormy weather
My arrested hope wonít choke forever
Like a memory I needed never

We walk wrapped in thought
Some are vacant some have grown too short
Itís the only thing Iíve ever had that keeps me lonely

In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound
When nobody is around

Come down from the waist of time
Feel so empty when I feel so fine
Starting over we could change this light shadow sober

Iíve been waiting for far too long
Letís stick together
Coz youíre keeping me warm but itís a lonely setting sun

I wait so long now my head is full of pressure
I need time to cure my mind
Itís like a loop that lasts forever

Iíve been waiting for far too long
Letís stick together
Coz youíre keeping me warm but itís a lonely setting sun

In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound
For nobody



Those Thieving Birds Part 1 - Strange Behaviour - Those Thieving Birds Part 2

Those thieving birds
Hang strung from an empty nest
This swan plagued pond
Foresaken and under whelmed
Those leaving words
Hang strong from an emptiness
Hang strong from an emptiness
Those thieving birds
Hang strung from an empty nest

This is tearing me apart
If the sun wonít shine
Forever will never be fine
Underneath the hollow ground
Lies a night time sky
For only a desperate eye
---
When I'm paranoid I see walls behind walls behind walls
When Iím over joyed I see falls over falls over falls
When Iím all alone Iíll be wary and careful to
Only eat with uncles
Never talk to strangers
God is in the kitchen
Faking baby dangers

Change whatever karma means
For the only things that end never truly begin
If this streets air ain't up to par
Iíll take my clothes and take this strange behaviour
Not only liked but loved as well
If this streets air ainít up to par
I'll take my clothes and take this strange behaviour
Not only liked but loved as well
---
If this keeps tearing me apart
The walls come down wonít stop this empty feeling
For everything apart from this

Lonely in life
Dead or alive
If the truth had incursions
No more goodbyes
No more big lies
If the truth had versions
As long as you and I are together
Iíll hold onto the jewellery
Like staple strapped clenched fist and tongs

Hang strung from an empty nest
Those thieving birds
Hang strung from an empty nest



The Man That Knew Too Much

There was a man that knew too much
With a panic attic mind but a chance to numb
His golden touch to ignore the will of time
Had me struck down open to the fact
I was standing in a line with a broken occupation on my back

Time is not a moment weíre letting slip away
Thereís nothing left to say itís changing every day
The way Iím thinking in different shades of grey
Itís not enough to say that this is my love

He had the anti midas touch
Temporary state of mind
But a chance to die enhances growth
Now Iím trembling all the time
Stumble round making faces on the scene
Scene what what
Stumble round make your faces on your own

Time is not a moment weíre letting slip away
Thereís nothing left to say itís changing every day
The way Iím thinking in different shades of grey
Itís not enough to say that this is my love

Iím not your mocking bird
That sings your cellar song
She got a paper run
Youíre compensated

Can we all gather round on the scene
Can we all move around on our own
Are ya a mover shaker all alone

Time is not a moment weíre letting slip away
Thereís nothing left to say itís changing every day
The way Iím thinking in different shades of grey
Itís not enough to say
Time is not a moment weíre letting slip away
Thereís nothing left to say but this is my love

Iím not your mocking bird
That sings your cellar song
She got a paper run to write your letters wrong



Waiting All Day

I took advantage
Of a straight believing town
That tore the bandage
And said look whoís bleeding now
Are you listening or are you faithless like the others
Long days are almost here
Faded signs for you

Iíll be waiting all day
I've be waiting all year
For you itís true
Heís been beaten
Might have brought it on himself
So he stopped reading
Every book on mental health
But alls not lost in this tangle like no other

Long days are almost here
Faded signs for you
Iíll be waiting all day
Iíve be waiting all year
For you itís true

Take this dose and go
Whiskey warm September
The faded sign will show
That he still remembers

Long days are almost here
Faded signs for you
Iíll be waiting all day
Iíve be waiting all year
For you itís true

Waiting all day
Waiting all year
Iíll be waiting all day
Iíll be waiting all year



Mind Reader

I heard a hole in the silence
I saw a crack in the plan but I got lazy ways
Youíre not a private detective take off your telephone shoes
My thoughts going out of phase
And these are the better days

Still it seems funny
Sticking like honey
Wrote my own article
Now Iím humminí
She takes pictures through my lazy eyes
And Iím dreaminí girl itís your money

When weíre alone and out driviní ourselves around all the bends
Sheís got crazy ways
And Iím all woo ooh

Donít know what you want
Donít know what you want
No Iím not a mind reader baby come on

Donít know what you want
Donít know what you want
No Iím not a mind reader baby

I got addictive dependent
I got a cold change of heart
But I got lazy ways
Weíre all woo ooh

Donít know what you want
Donít know what you want
No Iím not a mind reader baby come on

Donít know what you want
Donít know what you want
No Iím not a mind reader
Mind reader
Mind reader baby come on



Low

Have you ever been lost
Floating on the ground
Like a fading frost
Youíve fallen asleep
Next to your bed
And you feel so low
Oh theyíve stolen your pride
Stand up while your conscience sits aside
Iíve made up my mind
Half of the time and I feel so low

Stay and hijack the hurt
I feel so low I feel so high
Take a look inside my mind

If the object was clear
There wouldnít be a point
Only godless fear
By the end of July
I wonder will I still feel so low
Oh I am host to a guide
Moving in time
And falling in line
Iíve made up my mind
The papers are signed
And I feel so low

Stay and hijack the hurt
I feel so low I feel so high
Take a look inside my mind

Once a lover
Never suffer
So far away from here
Feeling hollow
Head to toe so low

Stay and hijack the hurt
I feel so low I feel so high
Take a look inside my mind



Insomnia

Tomorrow will be another part of yesterday
And yesterday will be another part of the day before

Wait, I hear another song insomnia
About the days I wasnít tired
And doing that fun retro look

I stay awake for days
I stay awake for days
But Iíd sit awake in daze anyway
Iím a maze of chains

Hey donít use the term accommodation
I wonít be there for that and that will never be there for me
And I need to get some sleep slash resolution
About the days I wasnít tired
And doing that fun retro thing

I stay awake for days
I stay awake for days
But Iíd sit awake in daze anyway
Iím a maze of chains

Over in the corner of a circle
I sleep behind this bedroom
I see fun retro look
Dine behind a suitcase in an empty room
Itís time to leave millions behind
Hey thatís what I took from retro look

I stay awake for days
I stay awake for days
But Iíd sit awake in daze anyway
Iím a maze of chains



All Across The World

Underneath the shelf cracks appear in thick enamel
In this laps excuse for wasting time
I wait for signals shooting stars
Iíd scrape through every branch
Coz I need to come down

Underneath the home
I lived in I was a page in someoneís book
And know one asked me why
The page was fifteen stories high
Iím underneath that home wondering why

All across the world
There are things we need to forget and forgive
Sometimes we have to try and shed the damage we donít need
Oh justice shake your head
Iím wasting my time

We can break this drought
Wanna tell ya I love ya I need ya in the night
Sometimes I get so full
I wanna tell ya Iím feeling alright
Iím shaken to the bone
And on my way home

Adjust an omen at the door
Singing baby wont you please get a hold without it
And while you sit there on the phone tell me baby
Iím a liar you donít seem to care what I care about and baby itís a shame
To be wasted

All across the world
There are things we need to forget and forgive
Sometimes we have to try and shed the damage we donít need
Oh justice shake your head
Iím on my way home
