Confidence and ignorance approve me
Define my day today
I've tried so hard to shut it down lock it up
Gently walk away

Appetites and impulses confuse me
Decide my day, today
Now my body says it's over
Shaking hands move to tear my face away

And when the night comes I'm fiending like a pyrale
And I know it stables my survival
When there's music all around me and I haven't got a single word to say

And then the light shines
It's gleaming like a bottle
And lord knows I'll tackle it full throttle
May I illuminate the nameless faceless saints out of these odd and open graves

Every lover on a mission shift your known position into the light
Every diamond elemental you are instrumental to the light
Every sonic evolution make your own contribution to the light
Every lover on a mission shift your known position to the light

Oh body mind leave me behind
And I'll do you one better
While you define
Your heartless time
I'll defend my love forever

Every lover on a mission shift your known position into the light
Every diamond elemental you are instrumental to the light
Every sonic evolution make your own contribution to the light
Every glory has disaster everyone is gonna bring you faster out into the light
The light

After the rain
A killer crane
After the rainbow

Across the sky
Her graces glide
Across the sea

Across creation
And over time
Her grace she slides
Escapes its station

A cold wind blows
The day bestows
No heart no nation

Leave it behind
Your restless mind
Your jealousies
But isolation
Demands your patience
To be found together in time just to say

Sunshine I saw you through the hanging vine
A memory of what was mine fading away
But this night heals the ground
And the moonlight steals the sound
I can leave suddenly unafraid

And after all
We're free to fall
Once all the pain goes
And how we stood
And what was good
Could last so along

In isolation
A transformation

Blue laughter leaves me
Leaves me blue
And more than hard to see it through
This laugh of love and lie tingle
A killer crane
After the rainbow
May they found together in time just to say

Sunshine I saw you through the hanging vine
A memory of what was mine fading away
And this night heals the ground
And the moonlight steals the sound
I can leave suddenly unafraid

Sunshine come crawling through the hanging vines
A memory of what was mine fading away
And this night heals the ground
And the moonlight steals the sound
I could leave suddenly unafraid

Sunshine I saw you through the hanging vine
A memory of what was mine fading away
And this night heals the ground
And the moonlight steals the sound
I could leave suddenly unafraid

It might be impractical to seek out a new romance
we won't know the actual if we never take the chance
I'd like to collapse with you and ease you against this song
I think we're compatible, I see that you think I'm wrong

any time will do, my love
any time will do, no choice of words will break me from this groove
any time will do, my love
any time will do, what choice of words will take me back to you?

your love makes a fool of you, you can't seem to understand
a heart doesn't play by rules and love has it's own demands
but I'll be there to take care of you if ever you should decide
that you don't want to waste your life in the middle of a lovesick lullaby

any time will do, my love
any time will do, no choice of words will break me from this groove
any time will do, my love
any time will do, the choicest words will take me back to you

oh my reddest rose, caldera, set it off
how your fire grows hermosa caldera
glistening through your fussed blows careen your caldera
set it off, as your body flows the second hand flashes
passes over your skin like time

my love, any time will do

. . .


Hey girls hey boys don't mind the noise
It's just the sound of me inside your head

. . .


Trouble ahead of its time
Is the fate of the fish washed up on shore
Do you know that he just won't feel right
Till he's swallowed up by the tide
Thought it might know better

Born into capital lifestyle heights
Got a head full of fever and it feels all right
Cause I shake my bottle and I suck my swill
And I love how I'm living cause I've got my fill
But I can't stop thinking how it's all gone wrong
And the cracks will be obvious before too long

I've abused my position and it cost my friends
And if the world keeps turning I could do it again

What's the matter with your next-door neighbour
I heard he had sex, drugs and danger
You can kick it with a complete stranger
I think I hear him calling

What's the matter with your next-door neighbour
An act of man, a freak of nature
You've been kicking with a complete stranger
I think I hear him calling

And the time on your hands is a walk in the park
If it don't then I hope you can see in the dark (real hard)
Hail Mary, watch your life unfold
I'm a man on a mission or so I've been told

I can choose my victims, I could shed my skin
And if the world keeps turning I could do it again
But I can't stop thinking that it's all gone wrong
And the truth will be obvious before too long

I've abused my position and it cost my friends
If the world keeps turning I'mma do it again

What's the matter with your next-door neighbour
I heard he had sex, drugs and danger
But you can kick it with a complete stranger
I think I hear him calling

What's the matter with your next-door neighbour
An act of god, a freak of nature
You've been kicking with a complete stranger
I think the curtain's falling down

We lock eyes and walk away unrecognised
We lock arms and spin
Commence our repetition

My repetition, my repetition is this
My repetition, my repetition is this
My repetition, my repetition is this...

. . .

Forgotten

[No lyrics]

. . .


Now drop yourself with no concern
On how to breathe
When your mind is burned
On optimistic, on overload
Can we shift the heat back
To when your heart's grown cold

In severed light
Our souls are damaged
And with that caged
To the cause of light
Now I can see
Another language
Gone optimistic
We're gonna survive

We're the tail-end of the sun
To a greener hideaway
Where in peace I found my fun
Till I heard the future say

I'm in an army, a megaquake
A force of nature
All hell ashake
Improve our days now, cause we might not sleep tonight
Suffused are we to the cause of light!

On optimistic
On overload
Can we shift the heat back
To when your heart's grown cold
And now we know why
And know what we must do
Aware of the cracks
The heart shines through

We're the tail-end of the sun
To a greener hideaway
Where in peace I found my fun
Till I heard the future say

We're the tail-end of the sun
To a greener hideaway
Where in peace I found my fun
Till I heard the future...

(Would you believe my life was all right)
A bed of roses
And rollercoasters
(Would you believe my life was so fine)
A bed of roses
And rollercoasters
A bed of roses
And rollercoasters
