Console me in my darkest hour
Convince me that the truth is always grey
Caress me in your velvet chair
Conceal me from the ghost you cast away

I'm in no hurry, you go run
And tell your friends I'm losing touch
Fill their heads with rumours of impending doom
It must be true

Console me in my darkest hour
And tell me that you always hear my cries
I wonder what you got conspired
I'm sure it dawns the constellation prize

I'm in no hurry, you go run
And tell your friends I'm losing touch
Fill the night with stories, the legend grows
Of how you got lost

But you made your way back home
You sold your soul, like a Roman vagabond yeah

I heard you found a wishing well
In the city
Console me in my darkest hour (in my darkest hour)
And you throw me down

I'm in no hurry, you go run
And tell your friends I'm losing touch
Fill your crown with rumours
Impending doom, it must be true

But you made your way back home
You sold your soul, like a Roman vagabond

And all that now you got lost, but you made your way back home
You went and sold your soul, an allegiance dead and gone
I'm losing touch

. . .


I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind

And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart
Cut the cord

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Hear my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long to devotion
It taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You've gotta let me go

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight
There is no message we're receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

You've gotta let me know

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

It started with a low light
Next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed
And then they took my blood type
They left a strange impression in my head
You know that I was hopin'
That I could leave this star-crossed world behind
But when they cut me open
I guess I changed my mind

And you know I might
Just walk too far from the floor this time
Cause they're calling me by my name
And they're zipping with light beams
To street corners, phones, and satellites

Oh that was the turning point,
That was one lonely night
The storm maker says it ain't so bad
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, "Everybody look down
It's all in your mind"

Well, now I'm back at home
And I'm looking forward to this life I live
You know it's gonna haunt me
So hesitation to this life I give
You think you might cross over
You're caught between the devil and the deep blue sea
You better look it over
Before you make that leap

And you know I'm fine
But I hear those voices at night
Sometimes that justify my claim
And the public don't dwell on my transmission
Cause it wasn't televised
But it was the turning point

On a lonely night

The storm maker says it ain't so bad
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, Everybody look down
It's all in your mind

The storm maker says it ain't so bad
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, Everybody look down
It's all in your mind

My global position systems are vocally addressed
They say the Nile used to run from East to West
They say the Nile used to run from East to West
The storm maker says it ain't so bad
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, Everybody look down
It's all in your mind


The storm maker says it ain't so bad
The dream maker's gonna make you mad
The spaceman says, Everybody look down
It's all in your mind

It's all in my mind
It's all in my mind
It's all in my mind
It's all in my mind
It's all in my mind
It's all in my mind

. . .


It's getting close to sundown
Over the sierra
Stranded on the heatwave
Burning with desire

She was on the sidewalk
Looking for a nightlife
We talked about the real things
And drove into the fire

Headlights on the highway
The desert wind is howling
Rattlesnakes and romance
Are spilling with the rain

Candy apple red dress
Bleedin' when she kissed me
Heaven in a ragtop
Take away my pain

When your chips are down
When your highs are low
Joyride (Joyride)
Move across the night
Like a separate wind

Pull up to a motel
Vacancy was buzzing
Pink and dirty neon
Settle on the hood

Wrapped her arms around me
Come a little closer
Stumble in the twilight
And fell onto the floor

Lovin' Mona Lisa
And dreaming of the free world
Lipstick on the nightstand
And demons at the door

When your chips are down
When your highs are low
Joyride (Joyride)
Move across the night
Like a separate wind (Joyride)

When your hopes and dreams
Lose the will to glow
Joyride (Joyride)
Reaching for the light
Woman we can win

There's something in the distance
A glorious existence
A simple celebration
A place you never been before

Won't you kiss me, tell me that you want it
Ooooh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Reaching for the light
Woman we can win

When your chips are down (When your chips are down)
When your highs are low
Joyride (Joyride)
All your hopes and dreams
All your dreams and hopes
Joyride (Joyride)

. . .


A Dustland Fairytale beginning
Just another white trash county kiss
In '61, long brown hair and foolish eyes

He looked just like you'd want him to
Some kind of slick chrome American Prince
A blue jean serenade, and moon river, what you do to me
I don't believe you

Saw Cinderella in a party dress
But she was looking for a nightgown
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands
He's getting ready for the showdown
I saw the minute that I turned away
I got my money on a palm tonight

Change came in disguise of revelation, set his soul on fire
She says she always knew he'd come around
And the decades disappear like sinking ships
But we persevere, God gives us hope
But we still fear what we don't know

The mind is poison
Castles in the sky sit stranded, vandalized
A drawbridge is closin'

Saw Cinderella in a party dress
But she was looking for a nightgown
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands
He's getting ready for the showdown
I saw the ending when they turned the page
I took my money and I ran away
Straight to the valley of the great divide

Out where the dreams are high
Out where the wind don't blow
Out here, the good girls die
And the sky won't snow
Out here, the birds don't sing
Out here, the field don't grow
Out here, the bell don't ring
Out here, the bell don't ring

Out here, the good girls die

Now Cinderella, don't you go to sleep
It's such a bitter form of refuge
Oh don't you know, the kingdom's under siege
And everybody needs you
Is there still magic in the midnight sun
Or did you leave it back in '61?
In the cadence of a young man's eyes
I wouldn't dream so high

. . .


Candy talks to strangers
Thinks her life's in danger
No one gives a damn about her hair
It's lonely down on track street
She used to go by Jackie
The cops, they'll steal your dreams and they'll kill your prayers
Take a number where the blood just barely dried

Wait for something better
No one behind you
Watching your shadows
This feeling won't go

Crooked wheels keep turnin'
Children, are you learnin'
Climatize, but don't you lose the plot
A history of blisters
Your brothers and your sisters
Somewhere in the pages we forgot

Take a number Jackie
Where the blood just barely dried
You know I'm on your side

Wait for something better
No one behind you
Watching your shadows
You gotta be stronger than the stories
Don't let it blind you
Rivers of shadow
This feeling wont go

And the sky is full of dreams
But you don't know how to fly
I don't have a simple answer
But I know that I could answer
Something better

This feeling won't go

Wait for it (x4)

. . .


The emotion it was, electric
And the stars, they all aligned
I knew I had to make my, decision
But I never made the time
No, I never made the time

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, so far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home

Exoneration lost his, eraser
But my forgiver found the sun
And there are twisted days that I take comfort
Cause I'm not the only one
No, I'm not the only one

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, very far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home

There is a majesty at my doorstep
There is a little boy in her arms
Now we'll parade around without game plans
Obligations, or alarm

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, very far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, so far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home
In the dark

. . .


Far from the evergreen of old Assam
Far from the break fall on the trails of old Saigon
Straight from the poster town of scorn and Ritz
To bring you the wilder side of gold and glitz

But neon tiger there's a lot on your mind
They promised just to pet you, but don't you let them get you
Away, away, oh run
Under the heat of the southwest sun

Took to the spotlight like a diamond ring
Came from the woodwork with the hopes they might
Redeem themselves for poor decisions to win big

But neon tiger there's a lot on your mind
They strategize and name you, but don't you let them tame you
You're far too pure and bold
To suffer the strain of the pain that's old???

I don't wanna be kept, I don't wanna be caged
I don't wanna be damned oh hell
I don't wanna be broke, I don't wanna be saved
I don't wanna be S.O.L.
Give me rolling hills so tonight can be the night that I stand among a thousand thrills
Can you cut me some slack
'Cause I don't wanna go back
I want a new day and age

Come on girls and boys, everyone make some noise!

But neon tiger there's a price on your head
They strategize and cut you, but don't you let them touch you
Away, away, oh run
I'm begging you neon tiger run

Under the heat of
Under the heat of
Under the heat of the southwest sun

Neon Tiger
There's a lot on your mind

. . .


This is world that we live in
I feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

Well maybe I was mistaken
I heard a rumor that you quit this day and age
Well maybe I was mistaken

Bless your body, bless your soul
Pray for peace and self control

I gotta believe it's worth it
Without a victory,
I'm so sanctified and free
Well maybe I'm just mistaken

Lesson learned and the wheels keep turning

This is the world that we live in
I can't take blame for two
This is the world that we live in
And maybe we'll make it through

Bless your body, bless your soul
Reel me in and cut my throat

Underneath the waterfall
Baby we're still in this, oh, yeah

This is the world that we live in
Feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

I had a dream that I was falling, down
There's no next time around
A storm wastes its water on me
But my life was free

I guess it's the world that we live in
It's not too late for that
This is the world that we live in
And no, we can't go back

This is the world that we live in
We still want something real
This is the world that we live in
I know that...

This is the world that we live in

. . .


The unknown distance to the great beyond
Stares back at my grieving frame
To cast my shadow by the holy sun
My spirit moans with a sacred pain
And it's quiet now
The universe is standing still

There's nothing I can say
There's nothing we can do now
There's nothing I can say
There's nothing we can do now

And all that stands between the souls release?
This temporary flesh and bone
We know that it's over now
I feel my faded mind begin to roam

Every time you fall
And every time you try
Every foolish dream
And every compromise
Every word you spoke
And everything you said
Everything you left me, rambles in my head

There's nothing I can say
There's nothing I can do now
There's nothing I can say
There's nothing I can do now

Up above the world so high

And everything you loved
And every time you try
Everybody's watching
Everybody cry

Stay, don't leave me
The stars can't for your sign
Don't signal now

And there's nothing I can say
There's nothing I can do now
There's nothing I can say
There's nothing we can do now

Goodnight, travel well
Goodnight, travel well

And there's nothing I can say
There's nothing I can do now

. . .


He's always trouble with his noncomplacent
Shotgun eyes, shotgun eyes
His subtlety, his mystery
Not like the other guys

She's always taken by his reputation
He's so bad, he's so bad
On Saturday night, they're running for the shadow

You say your heart ain't ever been broken
You think you know where you're going
Tidal wave
Tidal wave come rushing over me
You say this life has given you nothing
You got another thing coming
Tidal wave
Tidal wave come rushing over me

He'll get a warning sign to keep his distance
From her old man, from her old man
Now the story of forbidden love
Has gotta make a stand

So in the middle of the early morning
They'll slip away, slip away
And we know they'll do their best
Somewhere in the golden west

Oh yeah, and we'll watch them drive
They're so alive

You say your heart ain't ever been broken
You think you know where you're going
Tidal wave
Tidal wave come rushing over me
You say this life has given you nothing
You got another thing coming
Tidal wave
Tidal wave come rushing over me
Tidal wave

These tidal waves are caught off track
Come tomorrow, cause I can't go back
Come together, can't you see
Tidal wave gonna cover me.
These tidal waves are caught off track
Come tomorrow, cause I can't go back
Come together, can't you see
Tidal wave gonna cover me.

Cover me
I can't go back
Can't you see

. . .


Here in the house
Time is sweet
I hear the children playing in the street
Out where the hot winds blow a gentle breeze

Ah-ah-ah

I don't need time, I don't need time
No, I can get by myself
I don't need time, I don't know why
The summer wind did not tell

I scrambled online and I know that I
Will never be calm and well
But I can get by in the meantime
By myself

Woo!

He's a real winner
Probable to say
Sleeping in the lazy afternoon
A danger to the doubters, they assume

HUH!

I don't need time, I don't need time
No, I can get by myself
I don't need time, I don't know why
The summer wind did not tell

I scrambled online and I know that I
Will never be calm and well
But I can get by in the meantime
By myself

Deal me a crippling blow
Steal me remember my glow, a crippling blow

I don't need time, I don't need time
No, I can get by myself
I don't need time, I don't know why
The summer wind did not tell

I scrambled online and I know that I
Will never be calm and well
But I can get by in the meantime
By myself

Lord, I can get by in the meantime by myself

. . .


We used to tear it down,
but now we just exist.
The things that i did wrong,
I'll bet you've got a list.

Now i know how you remember
and those moments that you choose
will define me as a traitor,
stealing everything you lose.

Forget about what i said,
the lights are gone and the parties over.
Forget about what i said.
Forget about what i said,
I'm older now and i know you hear me.
Forget about what i said.

You'll stay up late tonight,
you'll turn off your phone.
Well you were selfish too,
but you were never all alone.
In those ugly pink apartments
with the hustlers and the kids,
mapping out some retribution.
Do we have to go through this?

Forget about what i said,
the lights are gone and the parties over.
Forget about what i said.
Forget about what i said,
I'm older now and i know you hear me.
Forget about what i said.

All of the stars are whandering around tonight,
we used to try them on.
And sometimes I hear you,
the galaxy sings your song.
And tonight I sing along.

Forget about what i said,
the lights are gone and the parties over.
Forget about what i said.
Forget about what i said,
I'm older now and i know you hear me.
Forget about what i said. [x2]
