better
get another coal on the fake fire
cover on the wet tiles, on the wet tiles
better
running out of of time, gonna cost you more than just your sweet smile, to a sweet smile

and i will love you better, i will love you better,
i will love you better, i will love you better, i will love you better

and i will love you better, i will love you better,
i will love you better, i will love you better, i will love you better

headway learn to love better so the words you leave me on my pillow read better
cheap card forever
headway can pull it apart and in time you see its going better than ever,
its going better than ever
hardcore say god in your bed clothes say ???

i will love you better, i will love you better,
i will love you better, i will love you better, i will love you better

and i will love you better, i will love you better,
i will love you better, i will love you better, i will love you better

and the thought, and the thought of you, the thought of you
the thought we'de be doing the fateful few together, together
and the thought that you might feel the same
with your insane skin and my lions mane and for you, to be you

and the thought of you it was crystal clear
i could warn myself up in you dear, and been you, and been you ???

to be you ???

. . .


o love i was torn, i was torn
but i put those thorns away
and im just a thorn where the gods look kind
and thoughts a behind me
o why would you be late to .... ???
o why would you be late by a year long ???

why would you kill it, kill it, kill it, before it dies
why would you kill it, kill it, kill it, before it dies
those puppy eyes are no suprise

when there's a devil in the door way
heaven in the hallway
say you still ador me
and im far out on an ocean
trapped in a disaster
say i still ador you

o why would you carry on the name ???
o why would you carry on the same

why would you kill it, kill it, kill it, before it dies
why would you kill it, kill it, kill it, before it dies
those pure eyes dont look the same
sthe same, the same as they used to do

alot like the eyes, the eyes, the eyes
I was making you, I was making you, I was making you

it was torn up and now its all right, all right
it was torn up, all right
it was torn up and now its all right, all right
it was torn up, all right

. . .


One last push with all the strength of us all
Under one great shadow floorshow
take the strain for us all

Can You Give It, Can You Give It
Can You Give It, Can You Give It, Can You Give It

One last pull to tie the slack of before
slow rolling bolder rocks, stone, pebble
grits, sand, dust, grain, speck of it all

Can You Give It, Can You Give It
Can You Give It, Can You Give It, Can You Give It

pull hold tape together
concrete to another
bind tight and deliver
hold fast, hold fast, hold fast

Can You Give It, Can You Give It
Can You Give It, Can You Give It, Can You Give It

. . .


Roses in the car, Roses in the car
Only sadle on the street ???
corrugated iron sheet
this bed is not concrete
this bed in which you sleep
flesh is flesh till blood runs cold
and blood is blood so i am told

the Carbon makes a star, Carbon makes a star
after all thats all we are, after all thats all we are

thats all we are, thats all we are
thats all we are, thats all we are, thats all we are

always on living sun lions ???
always going marry these sun lions ???

and you dont know if its true
or if to believe in you
there are tunnels through the snow
where weaker hearts have made a home

there are Roses in a car, there are Roses in a car
and after all thats all we are, after all thats all we are
and isnt it sad, the adults that we are
still playing follow the leader

body on break, body on break, body on break, till broken
body guna make, body guna make, body guna make, another party

dont want to be the last to leave
body on break, body on break, body on break, till broken
body guna make, body guna make, body guna make another party

dont want to be the last to leave
dont want to be the last to leave
dont want to be the last to leave
dont want to be the last to leave

. . .


I woke up with a love one eyes upon me
loved ones arms around me

shes my one and only
and i grew up, in the bosom of my family
Eight strong arms around me

if im the seed they grow me
and i thank those, those that give me company
they are a wall of arms around me

it is they who are my army
it is they who are my army

and through these eyes
there is no god got above me
no devil below me
no purgatory , no pearly gates
the worms are what await me
its only me that can forgive me

and i have faith, oh i have faith
and i have faith, oh i have faith
In those who put up with me

shes my one and only
if im the seed they grow me
they who are my army
the wall of arms around me

shes my one and only
if im the seed they grow me
they who are my army
the wall of arms around me

Dear friend of mine has
Broken his union
Broke from tradition
Broken his vision,
of the future
Alone, alone, alone;
Not alone at all.

Dear friend of mine is
Testing his body;
Tempting disaster
Testing Water,
With another's daughter
Alone, alone, alone;
Not alone at all.

Dear friend of mine my
Ear is bending
I'm not helping,
I'm not telling,
I'm not solving,
I'm not saying you're pretending
Alone, alone, alone;
Not alone at all.

Alone, alone, alone;
Not alone at all.

Dear friend of mine is
Helpless without helping
(Heal without scabs or scaring you
In Union fountain)
Alone, alone, alone;
Not alone at all.

Alone, alone, alone;
Not alone at all.

If you've got no kind words to say;
You should say nothing more at all.
If you've got no kind words to say;
You should say nothing more at all.
If you've got no kind words to say;
You should say nothing more at all.
If you've got no kind words to say;
You should say nothing more at all.

If you've got no kind words to say;
You should say nothing more at all.
If you've got no kind words to say;
You should say nothing more at all.
If you've got no kind words to say;
Don't carry the weight;
Let the weight carry you.
If you've got no kind words to say;
Don't carry the weight;
Let the weight carry you.

If you've got no kind words to say;
You should say nothing more at all.

True ring true ring
Gonna make this crystal sing
Other ways other ways otherwise
We're just going backward

True ring true ring
Gonna make this songbird sing
Get a load get a load
Get a load, get a load of it

True ring true ring
For the one that's listening
Sound advice, sound advice
Empty hands and tired eyes

True ring true ring
Giving up and giving in
Little arms little arms
Little arms on a big body

And I hold you to the light to see
And keep you safe inside of me
Oh, restore this crack so

I want nothing tonight to hold but you
I keep this pillow it’s such a poor substitute
For a soul, a soul,
For a soul, a soul

Truth told, truth told
Tear the tear and fold the fold
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up when it’s yours to hold
Truth told truth told
When you hit the ground just roll
Bend your knees bend your knees, bend your knees
When you’re lifting these

And I hold you to the light to see
And cotton wool you safe in me
Oh, restore this crack so

I want nothing tonight to hold but you
Keep close the cold compress
Such a poor substitute

For a soul, a soul
For a soul, a soul

. . .


Begrudgingly I
I cut your hair
And argument it followed there
That's growing old together
Lovers kiss
Let’s kiss, kiss and resolve

So pride aside I clear the air
And sweet smells they followed there
That's compromise sweetheart
Lovers kiss
Let’s kiss, kiss and resolve

Oh oh oh my love
There's ritual in the dance my love
And under day old sheets
We will dance my love

So sins confessed, I left you there
Went out into the midnight air
Taking my bedside manner
Lover’s tryst, on the list
Left to kiss and resolve

Oh oh oh my love
There's method in this madness love
And in a moment of hold me love
Oh oh oh my love
There's ritual in the dance my love
And under day old sheets
We will dance my love

Little give, little take
Little something you break
Little salt, little shake

Sweetheart, oh sweetheart
Goodnight, goodnight
Sweetheart goodnight.

. . .


There is love, there is lust
there is love fueled lust
and a thing called trust which i must not break for you
forsake in all others but you

there are storms I must brave
there are things i must do,
things i must not do, to break for you
forsake in all others but you

and i will see you when your older, when we are older
and i will see you when your older, when we are older

strong arms they held you to it
thats what they sing in shaddows
whats all this nonsense in the dark

we were bend in no dout stretched
pull at the seems at the 4 legged jeans
for whats is at stake
i will not break for you
forsake in all others but you

and i will see you when your older, when we are older
and i will see you when your older, when we are older

and in faith i left you to it
its what they sing in the shaddows
there is all this nonsense in the dark
and left you in strong arms
two strong arms that held you throught it
and i blew it, and i blew it

now now now now now there is something in it
now now now now now we have grown up with it
now now now now now we know that thats enough and thats enough

and now now now now now there is something in it
now now now now now we have grown up with it
now now now now now we know that thats enough and thats enough for now

and thats enough
and thats enough for now

and lay it down 1 upon the other is a messure of the way it stands

and everything you wanted going to get it

on your fathers chin and on your mothers head

and those who still left tonight ???
fathers belt around your bumside

silent when you saw what silent
nothing more to say

bag of bones, so much more besides
