Other Light
"Other Light"

Never tell your friends
Theyíll never understand
Confessions only burn themselves in the fire
Choke on every word
That no oneís ever heard
Your sentimental thoughts are strangled and tired

See it in another light
Youíll see it working out alright
I know I wonít change any mind
As long as theyíre still changing mine

As simple as they can
Theyíre telling you again
What they think youíve done is so unbecoming
But you donít have to take
Every old mistake
And always see it as a fall while youíre running

Saw it in other light
I saw it work out alright
I know I wonít change your mind
As long as theyíre changing mineback to top
Complicated Questions
"Complicated Questions"

Easy to be taken with everything youíre saying
Make us perfect and say it all again
But if every single secondís killing
Tell me Iím dreaming
Iíll sleep it all away

Tear out this love
Tear up the root
Tear out this love
Tear me from you

You know you can tell me anything you want to
Tell me something that Iíd never know
Could be cautious as the words roll over your tongue
Iím stung with sick discovery

Tear me from these complicated questions
Taking all the empty spaces inside me
But complicated answers never did you any justice anyway
Complicated as we are weíre going have to burn it all away

Complicated answers take up all the empty spaces inside me
But complicated answers never did you any justice anyway
Complicated as we are weíre going to tear out this loveback to top
Stay in Shadow
"Stay In Shadow"

So cold that you cannot cope
With a frozen heart
I guess we blow apart
I guessed it from the start

[Chorus:]
Stay in shadow
Iíll run this world out
Stay in shadow
Itís running out of time
Stay in shadow
I want to watch it drown
Stay in this now

Donít say because you canít
Say what we should have been
Donít show what I resent
Donít know cause I forget

So cruel to be so blind
Darkness was on my side
Now that youíve come and gone
I know where I belong

[Chorus]

[x2]
Light is leaving as I watch you go
Light is leaving inside of my soul

[Chorus x2]back to top
Good Times
"Good Times"

Something has stuck in underneath my skin
Eyes all looking in for something within
Somewhere in here

Now everything I say gives this all away
Senses deadened again
Nothing lives today
Not in here

Here in your head

[Chorus:]
Careful what youíre feeling on the inside
You should try to remember the good times and the high life
Are you feeling alright?

Felt that I belonged
And now I feel that gone
Where it all went wrong
I traced it all along
Back here again

There was something calling me to negativity
Dark covering me
Shrouding every scene Iím cast in

[Chorus]

[Chorus #2:]
Careful, when you're feeling, out of your mind
You should try to remember
The storm lines, in the spotlight, till you're feeling, all right.

Please answer
Iím calling just to find out
If you could be here for me when I crack
The answer came
I found it buried in the trash there
I saw it stareÖ

[Chorus]

[Chorus #2]

[Chorus]back to top
Absent Elements
"Absent Elements"

Everyone plays along
Get them giving or steal the life theyíre breathing
Theyíll grow sickened
Take their secret codes and signals
Discover all they know
Keep up the pace now until it all dries up

Youíll never find out now
That all these absent elements
Build your comfortable defense stronger still
Like an emptiness

Way too early to consider losing
Vacant staring may discover some reflection
Or may discover none
Just think what youíve done
And watch it all add up

Like an emptiness youíll never fillback to top
Thousand Mile Wish
"Thousand Mile Wish"

Forgive me if now I wear the face of worry
This time alone could never cause any doubt
But Iíve been cold too long
Such a strange time to find myself coming down as the rain
With all these holes my love,
To fill up from the middle
This storm could stay all night

So can you stay until we close our eyes
Til your dreams hold mine
Just stay until we know we tried one more time

Cause laughing lovers can overcome their closest demons
And theyíll go on and they wonít let go
They saw something that they know
Has never come so close
Can it stay here for us, for now?

Can it stay until we know ourselves?
Iím torn as I tell
Youíre the story that I know and fell from
Iím so far into your story I donít know why
We think weíre in control
When we lie between the lines

Weíll find a line to follow
Itís got to show real soon
Or weíll never reach this high

We climb a little further
Cause thereís nothing we canít get around together
Further gets colder until nothing was all that I saw around

So we stay until the ground
That we canít come down from splits us away
Maybe stars know why we fall
I just wish they were thinking out loud
Oh, I could wish all nightback to top
Conversations
"Conversations"

Something changing
The secret is building
Almost over and somehow seems a beginning
Losing focus
It must be boring
Looking forward never turns out the wrong way

Conversations alone
Complicate us together on our own
Conversations alone
So alone

No one calling
But someone is bound to reply
No one out there
But someone hears every word
I know weíre playing the same game
Easing the conscience by

The road was taken
The path led on
Til a new oneís left to clear
The signalís given
The show turned on til emotion cut too near

The road was taken
The path led on
The signals given
The show turned on
Still receiving
And still believing
The time that you take isnít gone

Keep us from together on our own
Together on our ownback to top
Last Scene of Struggling
The static grows
And kills the message
Unclear as the wind blows
Fear whispers through
All the wreckage

We search in vain and fail
Looking to save the story
Salvation I bang the nail
And seal the exit out

Peel away from your revelation
Does it feel the way you want to, you want to?

You bled alone
At the edge of reason
You couldnít change your mind
Into the dying season
Forgive me alone
The lies which you have grown
The walls you thought you built
That I won't even touch

Peel away from your revelation
Does it feel the way you want to, you want to?

Just say it all, it's all true
Just tell it all, you want to
Calculate one last scene of struggling
As Iím sinking Iíll be looking for you
'Cause You know who to blame

But you canít you canít you canít you canít stop the pain the pain the pain
the pain the pain
Cause _____________, meant to me to me to me

Itís just your story itís just your story to tell
Your story to tell, to tell

You say it all, it's all true
Just tell it all, you want to
Calculate one last scene of struggling
As Iím sinking Iíll be looking for you
'Cause you know who to blame
As Iím sinking Iíll be looking for you
'Cause you know who to blame
As Iím sinking Iíll be looking for you
'Cause you know who to blameback to top
Panic Attack
"Panic Attack"

Thought I could fake this thing alright
Thought it could somehow get me by
Watching the doctors as they slide
Needles into my eye

Thought I could finally get around
Laughable symptoms keep me down
Faces I see all keep me blind
And now theyíre redemptionís mine

Now that I canít exchange actions for words
Now that I found these inside fears the worst
Now that I know thereís no place left to hide
Can I become all I thought I might

As the leaders who follow the path of whoever was standing round them
Call to say what Iím missing and into a detail they always go
Donít believe them but offer condolences under the circumstances
All too often Iím missing the spirit to fit in so call me out

Thought I could soundly sleep tonight
Positive clear and breathing right
Panic attacks, panic attacks me now
Seems like a fair redemptionback to top
Therapy
"Therapy"

Wide awakened out of spinning
Round the safest orbit
You controlled the ordinary
I was grateful for it
Wide awake in the beginning
Trembling after the fall
Only half my world remembers
While the other half revolves

Cut off cause I canít remember
A face that could cut me deeper
But hearts could never leave me bleeding
Becoming the cause and burden
The lesson begins unlearning
And it has never been forgiving my dear

Itís all too familiar
Iíve been here before
Iíll carry this weight for your smallest reward
Because Iíll continue to break down the door
Just let me in I swear
It will not be like before

Canít think of what to say
I canít think of what to do
I just think I might be losing my mind
Canít stop this agony
Cancel my therapy cause
I just thought of you
and now I feel fine

Collecting the strangest conscience
Apathy returns itís offense
But only after I get moving
Relax and being the change
In time for the newest age
To help me find out what Iím missing in here

I covered all the ground till I uncovered our design
And every second I have spent has come to remind me in timeback to top
One Thing
"One Thing"

Restless tonight
Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line
Itís nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

[Chorus:]
If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldnít that be something

I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time

Even though I know
I donít want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

[Chorus x2]

Even though I know
I donít want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

Even though I know
I donít want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

[Chorus x3]back to top
Obvious Heart
"Obvious Heart"

The obvious heart has come to collect
Cause it tore apart like a tortured insect
The obvious heart waits here to heal
And balances out a subtle reveal

Cause thereís a remedy close
In a familiar dose
This bitter pill to swallow
Is last in the bottle tonight
Youíre empty itís alright

And full of yourself
No need to explain
To anyone else
Broken in time
Taken whatís left
No need to deny
The cause or effect

This heart is not a broken one
But where have all the colors gone
Itís still among the lucky ones

This heart is not a broken one
But where have all the colors gone
Youíre still among the lucky ones
And burning longer than the sun

Cause thereís a remedy close
In a familiar dose
Now you can find out who knows
Soaking the truth that she says
In taken chancesback to top
