Toward The Waves

[No lyrics]

. . .


The sun don't shine 'round here no more
And I know it won't be long
I hope I see you out tonight
And I hope we get it on

'Cause I'm ready, I'm ready, to love somebody
I'm ready, I'm ready, let's go

Whatever you heard about me before
Believe me things ain't what they were
Whenever you look at me or talk to me
You still sound just like her

And I'm ready, I'm ready, to love somebody
I'm ready, I'm ready, to love somebody
I'm ready, I'm ready, to love somebody
I'm ready

Seldom seen and in between
And I know it won't be long
Bittersweet is evergreen
Until we get it on

Now I'm ready, I'm ready, to love somebody
I'm ready, I'm ready, to love somebody
I'm ready, I'm ready, to love somebody
I'm ready, I'm ready

I'm ready, I'm ready
I'm ready, I'm ready
I'm ready, I'm ready
I'm ready, I'm ready

I'm ready, I'm ready
I'm ready, I'm ready
I'm ready, I'm ready
I'm ready, I'm ready
I'm ready

. . .


Daylight is creeping
I feel it burn my face
I don't sleep here no more
So my shadow walks in place of me

Like candy your eyes
Sweetly roll out of control
Like the singer, alive
But just barely holding on

Far away, where you run
When it all became undone
You'll be dust, realise
You were taken for a ride

But still you call that number
Till you're crawling under
Them stones, assorted Jones, and all alone

I'm alive
It kind of took me by surprise
But every time I look away
There's no light, there's no sentry at the gate

Far away, where you run
When it all became undone
You'll be dust, realise
You were taken for a ride

But still you call that number
Till you're crawling under
Till you're crawling under
Till you're crawling under
Them stones, assorted Jones, and picked over bones

Daylight is creeping
I feel it burn my face
I don't sleep here no more
So my shadow walks in place of me

. . .


There was a rapture
So I can never see you any more
Nightmares believable
Walking into sweet oblivion

I'm not saying it's easy
To feel it all or not at all
When somebody says lay down your gun
And when you lay it down get ready to run

Situation dire
It's gone away, it's not going away
Since you're wasting time again, my friend
On bonnie brae, on bonnie brae

If she's your master
Then get down on your knees and beg for more
I'm not saying it's easier
To live your life like her little whore

'Cause when you play with fire
Take your fate, it's not going away
Situation dire, on bonnie brae
On bonnie brae, on bonnie brae

The soul, the screen
The smoke in between
The rise, the fall
The thrill of
The first, the last
The sins of the past
The burn, the fade
The skin that you've flayed
Come see the sun
Kill everyone
But me, I'm free
Indubitably

There was a rapture
So I can never see you any more
I'm not saying it's easier
I'm not saying it's easier

. . .


Just being honest

Sucker swallow every time
Airplane come erase your mind
Seems there's been an accident
Telephone costs you fifty cents

To find out the retail
Gory detail
Nothing here for me
I get all of my kicks for free

Mangy dog without a collar
Buy me love for forty dollars
I got love for sale
Come on, get some before it gets stale again

I win the double for a lie
I get my money on the fly
We're throwing down
So come on by, I'll be around

I've got three, six, nine
Another dollar makes a dime
Yeah, all in double Dutch again
Notify your next of kin, I say

Mangy dog without a collar
Buy me love for forty dollars
I got love for sale
Come on, get some before it gets stale now

Love don't mean a thing
But two a.m. and a telephone ring
Love is all you need
And all you need is love
Love is all you need
And all you need is love

We go underground
'Cause there's emptiness above

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm just being
I'm just being
I'm just being
I'm just being

Honest, honest, honest
Honest, honest, honest

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

. . .


They won't mind
Six to nine's a long, long time
But they won't miss it
They'll just forget it
That shit'll twist your mind
If you let it

So slow down, lean in
Call up that feeling
You get when you're stealing
That all too revealing
Side of you
Who loves you true
But they'll just forget it
They'll just forget it
That shit'll twist your little mind
If you let it, believe
Who love the blue sky
Wear the dark eye

So slow down, lean in
Call up that feeling
You get when you're dealing
You start to believe in
There ain't nobody
Who loves me
It's starting to sink in
So lean in and start to deceive it
That all too revealing

Slow down, lean in
Call up that feeling
You get when you're dealing
That all too deceiving
Side of you
Who loves you true
But they'll just forget it
They'll just forget it
That shit'll twist your little mind
If you let it, believe
Who love the blue sky
Wear the dark eye

So slow down, lean in
Call up that feeling
You get when you're reeling
That all too concealing
Side of you
Who loves you true
But they'll just forget it
They'll just forget it
That shit'll twist your little mind
If you let it, believe
Who love the blue sky
Wear the dark eye
Who love the blue sky
Wear the dark eye
Who love the blue sky
Wear the dark eye

. . .


Take me to a place
High above the tide
Underneath the waves
Where I can come inside

A reveille
Told in fractured time
Only in this way
Will I become alive

Fill me with your love
I'm standing by
You and you alone
Don't ask me why
There's an inner place
I cannot find

So S.O.L. [Shit Out of Luck]
And petrified
So every time
You blow your mind

I wait for you
You never come
You're bleeding through
I must be numb

And you are just a dream
I cannot find
From under what you see
Don't ask me why

Don't leave it alone
My love, my wreckage
I ain't too weak to run
Though slow, I'm coming

Once I count the numbers down
To the end or there around
Free or thus, forever bound
For forever's coming down
And finally

Fill me with your love
I'm by your side
You and you alone
Don't ask me why

For you I will be there
I just can't hide
From way beyond the glare
I'll tell you why

Don't leave it alone
My love, my wreckage
I ain't too weak to run
Though slow, I'm coming

. . .


There's a girl lying at my door
I would die just to taste her blood some more
I knew a girl dying at my door
For another hit she gave me her soul

Now I know that my time has come
And yet I know that my trial goes on and on
Come on, baby, let me set you free
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling through the scenery

In my bed as I lie undead
Making love to the snake inside my head
On the floor like a beautiful whore
What you love never comes till you run and love it some more

Now I know that my time has come
And yet I know that my trial goes on and on
Come on, baby, let me set you free
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling through the scenery

Now I know that my time has come
And yet I know that my trial goes on and on
Come on, baby, let me set you free
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling through the scenery

Seem unwell
Look like hell
But I don't play
I've come a long way
I've come a long way
I've come a long way
Since Sunday
Girl, get running

Take a drive where your mind will cease to feel
Stay alive if you feel you can't stand still
Come on, baby, while it's light outside
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling on a who ride

'Cause I know that my time has run
And yet I know that my trial goes on and on
Come on, baby, let me set you free
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling through the scenery

Now I know that my time has run
And now I know that my trial goes on and on
Come on, baby, let me set you free
If you know what I don't come on over here and teach me

Take a drive where your mind will cease to feel
Stay alive if you feel you can't stand still
Come on, baby, while it's light outside
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling on a who ride

'Cause I know that my time has run
And yet I know that my trial goes on and on
Come on, baby, let me set you free
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling through the scenery

And take a drive where your mind will cease to feel
Stay alive if you feel you can't stand still
Come on, baby, while it's light outside
If you're up for it knock and we're rolling on a who ride

'Cause I know that my time has run
'Cause I know that my time has run

. . .


With your best laid plans, push and pull like a man
With your mouth sown shut like a dream
I regret to belie that I ain't your whipping boy no more
No witness, no disguise or disbelief

Maybe I over thought
The situation's over now
I'm gone

What's your name? Open wide
Watch your head, you better step inside
We all grows up, you hear?
I'm going to get a kiss then I'm going to get away from here

Maybe I over thought
The situation overwrought
Maybe I over thought
The situation overwrought
With drama
Go tell your mama
Go tell your mama
That I'm here
That I'm here

To save somebody tonight
I love you too much
I love you too much
You say you do
You say you're blue
But I told you once
You talk too much
And don't say enough
You're friends ain't true
They'd have you for lunch
They'd have you for lunch
I'll take a ride
I'll take a ride
I'll take a ride
I'll take a ride
I'll take a ride
I'll take a ride
I'll take a ride

. . .


Once I was invisible
For all the world to see
I travelled through the ether on
The blood of my enemies

And if they dared to whisper
When they thought they were alone
Then I was just as deadly as
A bug on the telephone

And though I was a child
And though I knew it well
You'd only know deliverance
To hope I would never tell

The night began to close around
The neighbourhood again
But as I walked the streets the devil
Tumbled down my brain

And though I was a child
And I knew right from wrong
Three can keep a secret if
Two are dead and gone

Not a long way away
On and on let us pray

The secret of my mystery
Will never see the dawn
And you will never ever know
If you were once my pawn

When I was a child
And when I went away
You were not the victim for
It was you who let me stay

. . .


I am a fire starter, no ventilation
Now I'm kneeling
As the smoke is swallowing

No need for water, darling
I'm dedicated to a feeling
I can't help but following

A slow roulette
A sweet duet
I can't forget
I'm trying

Feel the powder burn
Tonight, tonight
There'll be nowhere to turn
It's all right, it's all right
And I burn
And I want that feeling again

I hear somebody calling
And now the fire's in the ceiling
There's no way to stop it now

A silhouette
Of sweet regret
I can't forget
I'm trying

Feel the powder burn
Tonight, tonight
There'll be nowhere to turn
It's all right, it's all right
And I burn
And no one can see me
And I yearn
‘Cause I want that feeling again

A cigarette
The fuse is lit
I can't forget
I'm trying

Feel the powder burn
Tonight, tonight
There'll be no self control
It's all right, it's all right
And I burn
And no one can see me
Tonight, tonight
And I yearn
'Cause I want that feeling
Tonight, tonight, tonight

. . .


Strings of your death
Tied to your breath
All that's been seen
Cannot be unseen
Unless

Deeper you fall
The places you crawl
To find you're unclean
Unsaved
Defeated by self
And no one else, my love

Tongue tied, obsessed
Mesmerised I acquiesce
And step into the machine again
Don't breathe, don't tell, my belle, listen

Deep in the garden
I wait for you now
Under the weight of the leaves
That do bend on the bough
Come save me
