As soon as we arrived I expressed my concern,
I might have known I should, should have learned,
Faded photos, a fool at each turn,
It seemed to me this trip, that we have been burned.

Find me some time, to find a way out of here,
I'd be inclined to walk my way home,
Find me a plane, I'll fly my way out of here,
We were so blind to come here at all.

Along came insomnia,
As if this week wasn't dragging on enough,
One might reflect upon a me
It was such a relief to leave this ride on and on.

Find me some time, to find away out of here,
I'd be inclined to walk my way home,
Find me a plane, I'll fly my way out of here,
We were so blind to come here at all.

No way out
No way out
No way out for me, and the girl.

Find me some time, to find away out of here,
I'd be inclined to walk my way home,
Find me a plane, I'll fly my way out of here,
We were so blind to come here at all.

Find me some time, to find away out of here,
I'd be inclined to walk my way home,
Buy me a plane and I'll fly my way outta here,

. . .



These 3 sins have finally found me:
Lust, Ambition and Greed
Creepin' in the back door, they came without warning,
they burned whatever they could steal
they burned whatever they could steal

So please could you go back where you came from again?
We don't want to harm ya,
We don't want to harm ya,
We are not your armor,
We're your friends.

These 3 sins have fell from their horses,
and taken me and you for a ride.
Deliver us from evil, let the devil disown me.
The serpents and the snakes will decide.
The serpents and the snakes will decide.

So please could you go back where you came from again?
We don't want to harm ya,
We don't want to harm ya,
We are not your armor,

. . .



I've been caught in a trap I set for myself
I don't want to be here when you could be somewhere else
So why'd I sit on my hands like a book on a shelf
Where only dust is falling?
Everyone 'round here lives in silence

If I had something to say I'd say what I mean
How'd you lose all your words? I swear it's obscene, I curse
How'd you look at yourself as the mirror turns green?
Yeah, only the fools ignore us
Everyone 'round here lives in silence

I could wait all my life for someone to think
I can't open your eyes but I can make you blink at me
So please don't try to be nice, don't need your advice
Please leave me to die of boredom
Everyone 'round here lives in silence

Silence
They wait for the end
Silence
They bow and they bend
Silence
Their homes they defend

. . .



I guess you'll find a reason to walk out on me
I guess in time we'll all return to the scene
Awake the old dog in me.

Our love was blind, a love unpretentious and free
Our love was blind, but now my love's leavin' me
Today or tonight you will see

I've got a hopeless memory
that you'll remember me
do not waste your sympathy
it all runs off of me

Though the wind blows you've drawn its call from my sins
God knows rainbows but you seem only too pale
A little or nothing prevails

I've got a timeless melody
that I sing out of key
do not waste your energy
it all runs off of
Me, and you, and everybody X2

Someday you'll say I wish you were here in my arms
til then I'll pray that you'll submit to my charms
Always keep safe from harm
Always keep safe from harm

I've got a loveless melody
so please remember me
do not waste your sympathy
it all runs off of

. . .



The operation's on
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin',
but we're on our way

So raise the alarm
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin',
we're goin' our own way

So move away from home
it's happening
we don't know where we're goin'
but we're on our way

Pack up anything you own
it's happening
we don't know where we're goin'
we're goin' our own way

If we're gonna survive,
we gotta let go of you
I'm sorry that it took me so long
to open up and tell you the truth

The operation's on
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin',
but we're on our way

So raise the alarm
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin'
we're goin' our own way

If we're gonna survive,
we gotta let go of you
I'm sorry that it took me so long

. . .



I couldn't tell
The weight of the world
was on your shoulders
Couldn't tell you were unhappy,
you were unwell
I go along like nothing is wrong
no need to worry
Too late to feel sorrow
upon borrowed time
Then now there's no answers
no easy way out
take it all if you want
take it all if you want

if you know how to run
Sweet Virginia, you should run
if you know how to play
Sweet Virginia, you should play
if you know how to say
Sweet Virginia, you should say
if you know how to be
be without me, you should be
you should be

I couldn't see
it seems I don't learn or get the message
don't know you you carry it all by yourself
How can it be
it doesn't belong, it's so not funny
this vintage of violence again on parade
and now there's no wonder
no shelter from shame
be alone if you want
be alone if you want

if you know how to run
Sweet Virginia, you should run
if you know how to play
Sweet Virginia, you should play
if you know how to say
Sweet Virginia, you should say
if you know how to be
be without me, you should be

. . .



Hello, hello, I'm glad to see you
Now we'll only stop to say goodbye
We'll go, we'll go just where we want to
We won't let the others bleed us dry

'Cause I am but a fool for you, that's right
And I got nothing to lose that I'd choose tonight

Come on, come on we should be leaving
But I let another one go by
Oh no, oh no, I couldn't leave you
Though I know they'd like to make me try

'Cause I shot down the moon for you, that's right
'Cause I got something to prove to you tonight

I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up

You know, you know I want to please you
And now's the time to let me try
Will you, will you do as I do?
Will you wait for me to stew or die?

'Cause I don't ever wanna see you cry
Yeah, I will never leave you high and dry
I, yeah, I...

I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah
I will always wait for you to catch me up, yeah

I will always wait for you to catch me
I will always wait for you to catch me
I will always wait for you to catch me

Hello my friend
How long have you been dying
To start out again
Lets turn around and see the truth for once ?
See what you are trying for

Now where ya goin?
Now where ya goin?
Meet me now
Where ya goin?
Cause everyone will follow you
Where ya goin?

Where ya goin?

Hello my friend
I'm seeing new horizons
I'm dreamin of the end (?)
Lets burn it down and spread the ash around
Nothin here to guide us

Now where ya goin?
Now where ya goin?
Lead me now
Where ya goin?
Cause everyone will follow you now

Yeah you should be dancin'
If you have the chance that
is what we all will be doin'
Yeah into the future
Cut it all loose now
instead you hold a steady line

It's not the answer
will you take a chance on
what we all should be doin' here

so many to lean on
isn't my own reason
to why you hold the steady line

Now where ya goin?
Now where ya goin?
Leave me high
Where ya goin?
Cause everyone can take it on
Can take it away if they want to

Hello
Hello
Hello

. . .



Meet, meet me in the city, girl
In the city feels right, girl
We'll get drunk on a fight, girl

Please, please don't leave me right now, girl
Right now, right now, oh no, oh no, no no no

You got me baby,
You got me girl
You got me baby,
You got me girl

Sometimes I think I went out
But then again my my mind changed
Sometimes I think I went out
But then again my my mind changed
Im still begging you babe, begging you babe (yeah)
Im still begging you babe, begging you
Please, please don't leave me right now, girl

What are you on?
Think you're the business, man -
what are you on?

The rhythm is wrong,
someone's out of tune,
and you call this a song?

Well you're having me on,
I don't believe you
you're having me on.

It's taking too long
when's it going to kick in?
You call this a song?

I'm never gonna get through to you.
Who's gonna chicken out first?

I knew all along you were braggin' it.
What planet you on?
Gotta stop your carryin' on,
I cannot carry you,
my patience is gone.

You kept me singin' along,
but you're not listening to what's going on.
So I'll take you head on.
I'll take your head off,
then I'll take you head on.

I'm never gonna get through to you.
Who's gonna chicken out first?
You're gonna chicken out first

We're all alone
I see you shakin',
now your armies are flown.

You're putting it on.
I see you fakin',
but you're foolin' no one.

There's a lot of shit goin' on.
I cannot hear you there's too much goin' on.
Oh I said it all wrong
I didn't mean it -- now I've broken the song.

I'm never gonna get through to you.
Who's gonna chicken out first?
I'm never gonna get through to you.

. . .



Well how do you do?
Do you like the look of me and you together?

So take me out.
Spill a little drink on your lap

She said to me so deep inside
I'm thinkin' that I'm an extra special guy
Takin' it all with an extra pinch of salt
My friends seem to think that I'm the one now

You're only teasin' me now.
I'm not so laid back that I wouldn't try...

Well how do you do?
Would you like me to mm, mm, mm-mm, mmmmmm....

I'm not suggesting that I want you, but
I'll take you out,
Spill a little drink down my back and,

She said to me so deep inside
I'm thinkin' that I'm an extra special guy
Takin' it all with an extra pinch of salt
My friends seem to think that I'm the one now

You're only teasin' me now.
I'm not so laid back that I wouldn't try...

You're only teasin' me now.
I'm not so laid back that I wouldn't try...

Too much, too soon.
Are you made out of stone,
or are you made out of gold?

I'll be no clearer
when I'm wrinkled and old,
when I'm wrinkled and old.

She said to me so deep inside
I'm thinkin' that I'm an extra special guy
Takin' it all with an extra pinch of salt
My friends seem to think that I'm the one now

You're only teasin' me now.
I'm not so laid back that I wouldn't drive you home.

You're only teasin' me now.

There it was
Something beautiful
There it was
Something wonderful

Someone lying on my pillow
Someone knocking at my door
Here she comes
Here she comes

There it was
Something beautiful
There it was
Something wonderful

Someone lying on my pillow
Someone knocking at my door
There she was
There she was
There she was

. . .



You're stuck with me and I can never see it changing
Do you believe this mess is getting any better?

Will you ride it out with me?
I can't see what it is I should or shouldn't be doing

Time and time again I told you
I won't be around when your phone stops ringing

And I can't fight
The past blinds me
And I won't mess with your woman
So don't you mess around with me

I told you once or twice before but you won't listen
I tried my best but you do not seem to be hearing

I'm not surprised that we all keep telling lies
So let's just fight - I am resigned

Time and time again I told you
I won't be around when your phone stops ringing

And I can't fight
The past blinds me
And I won't mess with your woman
So don't you mess around with me

And I can't fight
The past blinds me
And I won't mess with your woman
So don't you mess around with me

And I can't fight
The past blinds me
And I won't mess with your woman
So don't you mess around with me

And I can't fight
The past blinds me
And I won't mess with your woman
So don't you mess around with me

And I can't fight (Will you ride it out?)
The past blinds me (Will you ride it out?)
And I won't mess with your woman (Will you ride it out?)
So don't you mess around with me (Will you ride it out?)

And I... (Will you ride it out?)
And I... (Will you ride it out?)
And I... (Will you ride it out?)
And I... (Will you ride it out?)
And I... (Will you ride it out?)
And I... (Will you ride it out?)
And I... (Will you ride it out?)

. . .



Be the only one to know and be my alibi
Put on all the things you wore and wear them out
We'll collide before you know and I apologize
For shutting up and leaving slow when I'm around

I'll be right in front of you when I've got it all figured out
To be the only one who knows what to do when there ain't no doubt

And all this time will feel like seconds now
And all this time will feel like moments now

So keep the light on, watch them all rush round
And through it all keep smiling
Do whatever you may decide on
And any place or any time
Through it all you're shining
Just trying to make it right
I won't fight

And all this time will feel like moments now
