Can't take a train you know they move too slow
Got to take to the airport where I want to go
Heart beating like a million miles an hour
Listening the wind is turning sweet to sour

Orange airplane
Take me to a new day
Little orange airplane
Take me to a new day

I land downtown in the middle of the day
I'm coming down hard so get out of the way
Looking up to heaven trying to find a clue
Said I'm too far gone, got to pay my dues on

An orange airplane
Take me to a new day
Come on
Little orange airplane
Take me to a new day

I'll be heading into orbit on a Sunday morning
My legs are broken and my ears are ringing
Orange airplane takes me to my home
Take me to the graveyard and bury my bones on

An orange airplane
Take me to a new day
Come on
Little orange airplane
Take me to a new day

Take me far away
On an orange airplane

. . .


Well you're the only key
The one that's deep inside of me
Late at night in the pale of fright
I wake up only to turn on the light
You tell me all these things
In the desperate creeping night
You tell me all these things
While the darkness hides the light

Seventeen colours on the back of the wall
I run out the door and into the hall
You know I've never seen your face before
But there you are when you open the door
You tell me all these things
In the desperate creeping night
You tell me all these things
While the darkness hides the light

Gonna turn the only key
Now that's the one thing that I need
Late at night looking at the sky
And I see the things you say I'm not
You tell me all these things
In the desperate creeping night
You tell me all these things
While the darkness hides the light

You tell me all these things
You tell me all these things

. . .


Standing by myself on the sidewalk
Nothing in this world could make me talk
I'm nailed to this floor where there is no air
Alone I see myself and stare
Locked inside this world you gave me
It's lonely here through the smoke I can't see clear

And I know all the ways and I'll try
And I've seen all the places I get eyed
If I bear myself in the yard
Would the end of the day always seem so hard

Wait for the world to turn around
Then I won't go up or down
Gentle winds must sometimes sit
The face that looks on in my mirror

And I know all the ways and I can try
And I've seen all the places where I hide
If I bear myself out in the yard
Would the end of the day always be so hard

Standing on the edge of the wall
Sometimes I get too close and I fall, yeah

And I know all the ways and I can try
And I've seen all the places where I hide
If I bear myself in the yard
Would the end of the day always be so hard

Well all the nights last a thousand years
When you're in a time that feels so near
I'll just say you were the word I found
And then I won't go up or down
And I know all the ways and I can try
And I've seen all the places where I hide
If I bear myself in the yard
Would the end of the day always be so hard
Standing on the edge of the wall
Sometimes I look down and I fall, yeah

Just standing on the edge of the wall
I always go to far and I fall, yeah

. . .


Come on now I'm waiting
No one is walking by my side
I believe that if I get off track
You've got something that can bring me back
I go to you now and in a way you're very different somehow

Come on come on let's go inside
Come on come on go back to find
Come on back she's asking why
Go out into my side forever
Forever
There's only you forever
Forever, to the end now
There's only you
There's only you

Come with me to the place that's real
Look below you into the fields of green
The sound of my soul to capture you and let you go
Come on come on let's go inside
Come on come on go back to find
Thing about you that you hide
Run out into my side forever
Only you forever
Forever to the end now
There's only you
There's only you

Come on up to the higher ground
Even if you're falling down
Surround you with the moonlight
Now here's the door into the night

Come on come on let's go inside
Come on come on go back to find
Thing about you that you hide
Turn around into my side forever
It's only you forever
Forever to the end now
It's only you
It's only you forever (repeat)
We will see forever

I feel like a jerk...

. . .


Moving slowly in the morning light
Waiting for you to come along
Understand it's time for a change
Now I know I've got nothing to say
Looking through me like there's no one there
Journey to the great nowhere

If you are seeing what you're believing it's nothing new
Don't say you're seeing what you're believing
I've been there too, yeah

Today you bring yourself around
Only walking in the shade
Say I should change before it's too late

Now I know I've got nothing to say
Looking through me like there's no one there
Send me to the great nowhere

If you are seeing what you're believing it's nothing new
Don't say you're seeing what you're believing
I've been there too, yeah

Moving slowly through the morning light
I waited for you to come along
Too bad that it's too late
You should know I've got nothing to say
I'll be alone and I don't care
Journey to the great nowhere

If you are seeing what you're believing it's nothing new
Don't say you're seeing what you're believing
'Cause I know too

. . .


The scene looks very empty
Held in front of what might be
The books they all want to tempt me
And try to set me free

And now I'm on the other side
Looking back at me
The voices gnarl against us all
Telling what must be

And I see stars in the morning
Not knowing if I'm dead
I see stars with my eyes closed
Remember everything you said

Ten years after I have read
These words were still all in my head
I'm alive but you are dead
The words she used and what she said

Now I'm on the other side
I can't tell if she's right
Voices call against us all
Living out my life

I see stars in the morning
Not knowing if I'm dead
I see stars are my eyes closed
Remember everything you said

After midnight broken gate
It closed upon my soul
Your frozen image standing there
Warning me not to go
Into the cold

When I always start to fall
It all looks very clean
All along has she been gone
Or will she haunt my dreams
Now I'm on the other side
Looking at that dream
Then she waits to seal my fate
The stars above shining

And I see stars in the morning
Not knowing if I'm dead
I see stars are my eyes closed
Remember everything you said

. . .


Alone in a room with shadows staring at the wall
Got to shade my eyes for a moment try and understand it all
Disappear I'm just a ghost left over from another day
Lost in thoughts with a lonely girl
Never find out another way

(Where are you)
Lonely girl
(Where are you)
Not in my world

Every day in total darkness, every day is hell
Every day is black as night, no one left to tell
Disappear I'm just a ghost left over from another day
Lost in thoughts of a lonely girl
She went out another way

Where are you lonely girl
Where are you
Not in my world
Left me lonely

. . .


Were you around
Spring came today
Outside your room
You were away
All the lost hours spent in the cold
I didn't care
I dreamed you were there
Now I'm counting my chances gone 1 2 3
If you see me today would you remember me
Say you are free why don't you really live
You gotta hate forever never can forgive
And it's clear
I learned to trust the rain
I'm drifting out of reach
It's kind of strange out here

In this city built on broken glass
And the carcasses of a million dead sheep
Where the blood runs thick down third street
Down the gutter to the railroad station
And takes a train
Up, over these big mountains to the sea
That's where you gotta be
You gotta go to the sea

Yesterday I'm so glad to forget
I was so sane all life remains
But think of the time you learned to love
The rain in the park we walked in the dark
Now I'm counting my chances gone 1 2 3
If you saw me today would you remember me
Been raining forever, go ahead and leave
But you gotta hate forever, you never can forgive

So clear
I can't distrust the rain
I'm drifting out of reach
It's very strange out here

. . .


Sand on the beach beats a hole through my hand
Hands of the clock stand where I have to walk
All the way around
Turn upside down
Just look around to the turning
Everything inside is burning

Sign on the wall that I don't understand
It's just a part of a dream that I had
Feet on the ground
Head in the sound
Just look around to the turning
Everything inside is burning

Water so cool that its thoughts seem to soothe
Some things are real that I don't have to prove
Now you are learning
Rome now is burning
Just look around to the turning
Everything inside is burning
Just look around to the turning
Everything inside is burning

. . .


Clairvoyance, clairvoyance
Wild into the dead of night
Around the corner I see a light
See it coming my way run
Standing on the ground waiting for the sign

Whoa I can't go on I can't sleep
I can't last more than another week
'Cause I know what's coming then

Forgive my lies, I see it's too much
Doing all I can not to see your plan
I know it's no good
No good to keep you waiting

Whoa I can't go on I can't sleep
I can't last more than another week
'Cause I know what's coming then
'Cause of my clairvoyance

Daylight isn't here
But it's a part of us
I see it coming my way run
Standing on the grass waiting for the sun

Whoa I can't go on I can't sleep
I can't last more than another week
'Cause I know what's coming then
'Cause I know what's coming then
'Cause of my clairvoyance, clairvoyance
