Hello it's me, it's me
Calling out I can see you
Hello it's me, crying out, crying out
Are you there?

Hello it's me, it's me
I want to touch you
It's me throwing stones from the stars
On your mixed up world

Been circling round for 20 years
And in that time I've seen all the fires and all the liars
I've been calling home for 20 years
And in that time I heard the screams rebound to me
While, you were making history

I could see the fire
And I'll throw the fire back down

. . .


So take your time
I wonder if you're here just to use my mind
Don't take it slow
You know I've got a place to go
You always do that
Something I'm not sure of
But just for today
Let go and slide away

I was thinking maybe we could go outside
Let the night sky cool your foolish pride
Don't you feel alive
These are your times and our highs

So take your time
I wonder which cup you'll drink from
I hope it's mine
Beause you always do that something
Something I'm not sure of
But just for today
Let go and burn away
'Cause I read your mind
I need it because it takes me where I can't find
Because you always do that something
Something I'm not sure of
But just for today
Let go and burn away

[repeat]

Slide Away burn away
Slide Away burn away
I read your mind
I read your mind
'Cause it takes me to where I can't find...

. . .


Seen it all I'm already there

Save your books and your pills
I don't need them I'm there

You can do anything you want to
All you've got to do is try

I thought my best days had left me
My best years had left me behind

Then I felt them come back (to me)
And all the wild eyes
All the wild eyes know what I mean

If trees cut stars and eyes to heaven
I'll bend them back and bend them again
If my skin looks tired and old from living
I'll turn right back and live it again
You better pray when the music stops
And you're left alone in your mind
'Cause I'll be hearing music till the day I die

Then I heard it turn off
I swear I heard the screams
And all the wild eyes
All the wild eyes know what I mean
They're scared they've lost their dream
They press down on me
You know I thought I was there

Hello, high, are you?
Yes?
Well that explains it
Oh you were walking round like some kind of angel
You were walking round like some kind of angel
Hello, high, are you? Yes?
Well that explains it
Well that explains it

. . .


A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
I know which one I'm gonna end upon
You say you will but you never promised thoughts

A smile and a hand mix like water with sand
As far as you're concerned
A road and a sign I know which one catches my eyes

And I, thought I heard it for a while
Then it all came to me
Sometimes I just don't know I believe in

Don't you wanna know when I suffer
It doesn't show
A smile and a hand mix like water with sand don't you know?

I was thinking about moving back home
I don't really need to live here
No no I didn't I could I'm sure I would if I knew that
I didn't I could I'm sure I would if I knew that

A smile and a hand mix like water with sand
As far as you're concerned
A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
I know which one, I'm gonna end upon end upon

. . .


I see I hear it's very clear
Because the day has come when you have won
It's myself I feel
She calls me calls me the sun the sea yeah
I know it's not for today
It's not for today, it's for you and me yeah you and me

Alone in my room you're there on the floor
Open up your eyes let me get inside
Learned to love on TV
Learned to come on TV
Can I help you?
Can I guide you?

It amazes me how I broke free
Then got brought back in
'Cause when the feelings there shattered and scared
I know you've won goodbye I'm gone

Alone in my room, you're there on the floor
Open up your eyes let me get inside
Said you learned to come on TV then hold on to me
Can I help you? Can I guide you?

. . .


See the water break my hand
No one knows my name
I'm not in demand

Signs are right
The signs are here
Who needs virtual world
When I can see it now
I can see it now, oh now, oh now, now
No one goes no one cares
No one seen it anywhere

She's breathing life into lonely dead stars
Have you ever seen it
I ain't seen nothing at all

Come see the water break my fall
No one knows no one comes
Have you ever seen the book
The one on my help
The one entitled self-death, self-death
How to earn a million pounds
I can see it now oh the hearse

She's breathing down in a hole in my head
In the dirty half light where
Time means nothing at all

I'm calling out to some one
Anyone who'll have me?
Does anyone need me?
Does anyone know how to cry?
What happens when I go?
What happens when it snows?
I bet you could if you wanted to end

. . .



Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?
Another Friday night waiting for a revelation
I can see a million faces in the condecation

In a moment you'd changed
Things weren't the same
You were talking at me not with me
And your tongue was burning up in flames
Are you coming back? Are you coming back?
When Monday comes you'll be alone with
The whole world staring at you

Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?
Hey my friend friend you better leave now I'm gonna go my own way
You said I suffer from inner frustration

In a moment you changed
Things weren't the same
You were talking at me not with me
And your tongue was burning up in flames
And when you turn him off
Where does he go?
Where've the years gone?
I don't no
Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?
Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?

. . .


There you were on the floor cut up
And all alone I'll help you
Conceived in a chrome dream I was a crease
In the shirt that this world wears
Till I met Blue, I was in obscurity he said
Loosen up who do you wanna be?

We could steal a car and listen to the stars
I can see you've choked on them too
Had enough of late night films
Just enough for an hour or two
Oh Blue show me something new
Oh Blue show me something new

Blue, I've got a question every time I hold you
Yeah, Blue, I've got a question every time I swallow you it's true

Spike danced for 10 days long
We were just heading for the sun
You shot him down there's blood on my face
His heart's in the right place
What they gonna do to you
What they gonna do
Blue don't forget the word I warned you
Oh Blue don't let them push you don't let them destroy you
Meanwhile I'm searching with my brain blown eyes
See the world through my dirty lonely mixed up mind

. . .


You could flap your wings a thousand miles away
Butterfly
A laughing salesman sings
His world so far away
Butterfly

Butterfly
Butterfly

You could take the storm away forever every day
Cause you're mine
And I don't know what to say
You could let my smile disappear for a year
Cause you're mine
That's the only way I like it to be

Butterfly
Butterfly
Butterfly
Butterfly

You could flap your wings a thousand miles away
I'd still feel the pain
I'd still feel the pain
You could flap those eyes a thousand miles away
I'd still feel the way
I'd still feel the way

Butterfly
Butterfly

Here she comes now
Here she comes now
Here it comes now
Here she comes now
Here it comes now...
When we get to the best part
It happens all the time
You tell me all your lies
You tell me all your lies
You get your kicks from seeing me on the floor
Tied to your bed
Tied to the things you said
Butterfly is coming back
Butterfly is coming back
Butterfly is coming back
Butterfly is coming back

Butterfly
Butterfly
Butterfly
Butterfly...

. . .


How hard is it for me to wait for you, my love
See you in the next one have a good time
Could be a lifetime before I see you again, my love
See you in the next one have a good time

Eyes they open wide
Eyes they open wide
I like the way it was
Hate the way it is now

Lack of time and a wasted weekend
You wore your lies like a film star

Eyes they open wide
Eyes they open wide
I like the way it was
Hate the way it is now
