SELF-PORTRAIT OF A DYING MAN

 

I can't breathe

Can't look past these streets

Been stuck in this storm for years

 

It's a million miles away

A million miles

And I can't breathe

It's a million miles away

A million miles

And I can't sleep

Anymore

AMNESIA CAPITALA

Fly away from here

Before they clip your wings

Been chasing trails of smoke

Jumping in and out of black holes

 

If you need me it's too late

So don't bother looking

If you need me don't bother

I'm already miles away

 

Every day it's easy to forget

So easy to forget

It's easy to forget

 

Running circles on this rollercoaster

Get me off this rollercoaster

 

Every day it's easy to forget

So easy to forget

It's easy to forget

HOW TO MAKE PEACE WITH...

She says

"I didn't mean to wear your fragile peace of mind"

No care...

"We'll spend our days off in a quiet house by the sky"

 

She says

"I didn't mean to contradict your alibi"

No care...

"We'll watch ourselves drop one by one in modern style"

 

I waited for the world's worst symphony

In modern style

In modern style

In style

 

I waited for the world's worst symphony

CRASH & BURN

We're campaigning for a better cause

We'll carry you through

Carry you through

Like monkeys on a carousel

We don't care if you

Care if you

 

Crash & Burn

 

System failure signals on

The show's about to start

Sit back and watch

A bumper crop of weasels

Draped and camouflaged

As your God

 

Crash & Burn

 

I tried to tell you

Over & over

I've seen it happen

Over & over

 

We don't care if you Crash & Burn

SERENADING THE MOON

Picture yourself free of orbit

Long before discovery

And the mad fiends that pulled you out

 

On the eve of our great king's

Fall towards recovery

Will the voices in your head drown?

 

Still this flame keeps burning

A hole through the heart of man

There's a cold wind that blows through town

 

It cuts up the past

In tiny waves of noise

The curtains are drawn

It's time for a new voice

 

So leave tonight

Before this blood red sky spits fire

We're here tonight

To watch as it unfolds

A TRAGIC SYMPHONY

The magic she's in for

Sleeps on cloudy skies

With butterflies and violins

A tragic symphony

 

The magic she's in for

Lives in dreamy eyes

Sweet messages through mountains

Call waterfalls

 

The magic she's in for

Swims in black lagoons

With paper bag mermaids

On wasted afternoons

 

The magic she's in for

Is a shooting star

 

(You'll always be remembered)

 

(You'll always be loved)

THE HOUSE IS ON FIRE

They try to mask the truth

With seductive commodity

But the well's run dry

And the red tape's come undone

Their new slogan is super catchy

 

Our house is on fire

 

La La La La La

 

Our house is on fire

 

So give me the run around!

THE PHANTOM MANIFESTO

This mask is old tired and worn

Think I'll throw it away

What lies beyond trapdoors

In dark alleyways

Is never as frightening as the world you create

 

Am I really here If I can't feel a thing? Vanquished in dreams?

Or am I just scared?

 

It's time to pull down the shades

Time to turn a new page

So call reinforcement

Call in the brigade

 

Am I really here If I can't feel a thing? Fallen between cracks

Hanging on by a string

Vanquished in dreams

Or am I just scared?

INFINITY! THE THIEF

Blind is the infant

Crawling out your womb

Color fails to mesmerize

Thrown to the lions

While they march in your parade

A toast to the martyr

 

Self proclaimed thief

You caught me by surprise

 

Don't wanna be there

When they're calling out my name

I've had enough of everyone

Under attack

The walls have collapsed

And you can't move

 

Self proclaimed thief

You caught me by surprise

FAIRE LA FENÊTRE

When you need her

You understand why

But words don't reach her

As she escapes into the night

Like waterfalls

Of see-through faces on the evening news They always look so sad

The two of us

Hand in hand through time

Can never tell us who we are

 

I'm tired

Stupid and tired

Stupid and tired

 

She sees the world

Through the window of an unsound mind Light years away...

 

I'm tired

Stupid and tired

Stupid and tired

 

When you need her

You understand why

(Time won't tell us who we are)

THE DAY HE FELL OFF THE FACE OF THE WORLD

Tumbled through a wormhole

Tried to dig my way out

But I fell deeper

 

Into a dark forest

Where strange noises envelope

Trees with branches like mechanical arms

Mechanical arms that carry me off

 

Moon child

I can't make it home tonight

My ship is lost at sea

 

Yeah, I'm still here

I'm still here, I'm still here

Well I'm still here

Like it never fuckin' happened

No, it never fuckin' happened

 

Moon child

I can't make it home tonight

My ship is lost at sea

 

He did it all for nothing

Wouldn't let it go

And no one blinked an eye

The day he fell off the face of the world

 

Moon child

I can't make it home tonight

My ship is lost at sea

Moon child

To be in your arms tonight

Is a gift I'll only know in dreams
