    • Lyrics

      You think like a loaded gun as your mind is over come
      Unzipped by stellar fields infinity and love
      They put the big into the bang and said that chaos is the way
      I wanna hide
      I wanna run before I come undone
      So I fall thru' the edge of the day and stare into the night
      In the abysmal atmosphere the stars don't look so bright
      Feeling small wanna crawl now I got nowhere to run
      Let's turn around and dive into the sun

      Dive into the sun
      You know that life's what you make it
      So make it happen the way you want
      Dive into the sun
      You got to know how to take it
      To take it all and be grateful – yeah-e-eah

      You dream in catastrophes you want eternal guarantees
      That don't mean much to me, eternity is free
      A giant leap a step too far? you can count your lucky stars
      I'll read the signs for all our times and count on who we are
      I know
      you you know me gotta help me find a light
      With convoluted attitudes we may as well as might
      Turn it up turn it down now you know you are the one
      Let's turn around and dive into the sun

      Dive into the sun
      You know that life's what you make it
      So make it happen the way you want
      Dive into the sun
      You got to know how to take it
      To take it all and be grateful – yeah-e-eah

      Dive into the sun
      You know that life's what you make it
      So make it happen the way you want
      Dive into the sun
      You got to know how to take it
      To take it all and be grateful – yeah-e-eah

    • Lyrics

      I talk to the empty air
      I guess it's some kind of empty prayer
      To no one who's never there

      It doesn't matter if they exist
      I'm aesthetically atheist
      It only matters I pray for this

      You took the prodigal from my heart
      And gave me a safe place to fall apart
      You know all about me now

      I was a typical crash and burn
      Spent a life that I'd never earned
      It wasn't ever enough somehow

      I'm rooted in this place
      I'm watching your silent face
      I'm sensing my saving grace
      Is rooted deep inside of you

      Had so many trials of style
      Exponentially growing wilder
      Til I was right on the edge of it
      Lyrics

      And it was all down to me I guess
      I must be some kind of holy mess
      I only wanted you to exist

      My conscience is still intact
      I just thought that I would mention that
      It doesn't matter it's just a fact

      Aesthetically atheist
      Cos I'm not sure that I would pass the test
      I only wanna be sure of this

      I'm rooted in this place
      I'm watching your silent face
      I'm sensing my saving grace
      Is rooted deep inside of you

      The measure of consequence
      Is how far down you go before you have the sense
      To pray for deliverance

      I prayed for it more or less
      A lot of empty words I guess
      I only wanted you to exist

      I'm rooted in this place
      I'm watching your silent face
      I'm sensing my saving grace
      Is rooted deep inside of you

    • Lyrics

      Didn't I tell you the way back home
      Didn't I warn you to stay on the road
      Didn't I help you to understand
      That life is just time passing thru your hands

      There's no easy path thru it
      The truth is there is no truth to it
      Moving thru the spotlight
      Don't let the paparazzi world define you
      Now you've made your mark on it
      I know you believed the hope of it
      You know nobody wins
      It's the way you lose that keeps it hopeful

      Didn't I tell you I will be there
      Didn't I show you
      I really care

      You spoke of your plans for it
      You talked all about your destiny
      I could see the rain clouds
      But I couldn't stop the rain from falling
      You tried to go way beyond it
      You'd already made the most of it
      Nothing wrong with dreaming
      Just don't fool yourself about the meaning

      Didn't I tell you the way back home
      Didn't I warn you to stay on the road
      Didn't I help you to understand
      That life is just time passing thru your plans

      You say that you can't let go of it
      That your life only works because of it
      You're afraid that you can't hold on to it
      But your heart doesn't seem so sold on it
      Why not try to believe the heart of it
      Why not try to perceive the art in it
      Why not let me be more a part of it
      Didn't I tell you that I'd be there
      Didn't I show you that I really care

      Didn't I tell you the way back home
      Didn't I warn you to stay on the road
      Didn't I help you to understand
      That life is just time passing thru your hands

    • Lyrics

      I'll dream another day for you
      I'll peel another skin for you
      I'll bare another soul just for you

      I'll bleed another heart for you
      I'll even play the fool for you
      I'll act so crazy just for you

      There's nothing I will not deny
      If you're the sun I'll be the sky
      So many times I've walked right by your side
      So many times I've been a superfly
      But I am not your candy coated crazy little guy

      I'll be the martyr to your cause
      I'll be the star that has to fall
      Anything you want I will be

      I'll fill my head with thoughts of you
      I'll steal the moon and paint it blue
      I'll pull my own strings all for you

      There's nothing I will not deny
      If you're the sun I'll be the sky
      So many times I've walked right by your side
      So many times I've been a superfly
      So many times I've wandered thru your heart
      So many times I've wondered where to start
      So many times I've walked right by your side
      So many times I've been a super fly
      But I am not your candy coated crazy little guy

      There's nothing I will not deny
      If you're the sun I'll be the sky
      So many times I've walked right by your side
      So many times I've been a superfly
      So many times I've wandered thru your heart
      So many times I've wondered where to start
      So many times I've walked right by your side
      So many times I've been your super fly
      But I am not your candy coated crazy little guy

      I will not deny...

    • Lyrics

      You gone and told me ‘bout the Hollywood Hills
      The thrills and chills
      The passion and the pills
      Keep talking

      You told me all about the men you met
      The come and get
      The kiss that you regret
      Keep talking

      You went and told me ‘bout the fame in Spain
      The plain in Jane
      The losing it again
      Keep talking

      You told me all about the sweet sunset
      In love and debt
      The one you can't forget
      Keep talking

      Now you keep talking in your sleep
      You've had it rough
      It went too deep
      I pray the lord your soul to keep
      Lyrics
      I've heard enough
      I'm in retreat

      keep talking me right out of here
      Sleep talking

      You went and told me bout the Italian job
      The Pope and God
      Spaghetti and the mob
      Keep talking

      And how about the little brokedown shack
      The hack ‘n smack
      The scratching Daddy's back
      Keep talking

      You gone and told me bout the Broadway hits
      The diva fits
      The lovers and the splits
      Keep talking

      You went and told me bout the Paris in the spring
      And the nearly thing
      And the diamond in the ring
      Keep talking

      I don't know what I can say
      Cos I can't take it away
      I don't know what I can say to you
      Cos you just took it away from me
      Now you keep talking in your sleep
      You've had it rough
      It went too deep
      I pray the lord your soul to keep
      I've heard enough
      I'm in retreat

      keep talking me right out of here
      Sleep talking

      Fell apart in St. Tropez
      That kind of gave the game away
      Met the set in Martinique
      Couldn't hack the chic-to-chic
      New York new walk big town talk
      Your perfect face was white as chalk
      Trailer trash to all time smash
      Now you're waiting for the burn and crash
      Tragedy in harmony
      You gonna bling til you're back on your knees
      You gonna sing til you're back on your knees
      You gonna ring when you're back on your knees
      Tragedy in harmony
      You gonna bling til you're back on your knees
      You gonna sing til you're back on your knees
      You gonna ring when you're back on your knees
      Monte Carlo boom to bust
      Lost the lustre lost the trust
      Went to Phuket went to hell
      Had to get back into your shell
      LA tripped over your head
      Wanted to jump but you made it instead
      Trailer trash to all time smash
      Now you're waiting for the burn and crash

      A tragedy
      Yeah, yeah, yeah
      Keep talking
      Sleep talking
      Keep talking
      Sleep talking
      Keep talking
      Keep talking
      Keep talking

      Straight out of mothballs we took the jet
      And flew across
      Gotham in retroglide
      The closest thing to heaven that I found yet
      In a city full of dreamers it's as good as it gets

      Go tell the spider to text the X
      This comic book caper is nine to five
      A seven or eleven and it's a bet
      In a city full of schemers it's as good as it gets

      Me, I'm an eight ball shoot me and win
      There's not a lot love in this city of sin
      Do you ever get the feeling this sun has set
      In a city full of screamers it's as good as it gets

      Calling all the great and the beautiful
      How about a little empathy
      What you gonna do when duty calls
      Send in all the clowns to keep us happy

      Repeat

      Moby or Gobi a deserted dream
      You hear a lot of ghosts in this old town
      Gotta let the fuse blow you right out the net
      In a city full of stealers it's as good as it gets

      Saigon ain't bygones for viet vets
      You don't know what hits you til they call in the debt
      The apocalypse is now and it's still Jack Schitt
      In a city full of dealers it's as good as it gets

      Calling all the great and the beautiful
      How about a little empathy
      What you gonna do when duty calls
      Send in all the clowns to keep us happy
      Calling all the great and the beautiful
      How about a little empathy
      What you gonna do when duty calls
      Send in all the clowns to keep us happy

      Your small time view is so oblique
      You think your thoughts are so unique
      Your squeaky lies are sneaky clean
      Cos you won't say just what you mean
      Now, I don't recognize you

      Oh, I don't recognize you
      You bled me dry and left me high
      Your dirty heart is by the by
      You trash your friends like it's a game
      Then you cry and claim the pain
      Now, I don't recognize you
      Oh, I don't recognize you

      All around it's all around
      All ready to be found
      All ready to take you down
      Down, down, down, down
      All around it's all around
      All ready to be found
      All ready to bring you round
      Bring you round now

      You break your beats and drop your bombs
      Cos everybody else is wrong
      You hawk your dove and say your prayers
      Like you're the only one who cares
      Don't like your TVocricy
      Your karaokeosophy
      Can't take another minute of what you say
      I won't be the bait today
      Now, I don't recognize you
      Oh, I don't recognize you

      All around it's all around
      All ready to be found
      All ready to take you down
      Down, down, down, down
      All around it's all around
      All ready to be found
      All ready to bring you round
      Bring you round now

      Hypno trips a psycho blitz
      You tried it all but nothing fits
      You got a little habit that burns your nose
      A bony fido freaky pose
      You hide your hat behind a stare
      You take the heat out of the air
      A solid state electric sigh
      What made you so angelized
      Well, I don't recognize you
      And I won't angelize you
      And I won't angelize you
      Because I don't recognize you anymore

      A walk in the clouds
      Walking together
      You feel yourself
      Walking forever
      The feeling that this is
      Everything to amaze
      And the Universe shines bright in your face
      The love we had was once in a lifetime
      When I held you close you were so precious

      I will still be here
      When the love has gone
      I will always care
      Holding on
      What we had we share
      When the love has gone
      I will still be here
      Holding on

      We had our time
      Captured the moment
      You heard yourself
      Talking of omens
      We were bound to lose faith
      Cos love is for lovers
      Aimlessly open
      With one another
      Deeper yet, As deep as the nighttime
      When you held my heart like it was precious

      I will still be here
      When the love has gone
      I will always care
      Holding on
      What we had we share
      When the love has gone
      I will still be here
      Holding on

    • Lyrics

      Daddy's little manikin likes a good time
      Stretched out in the limousine head all gone
      Hair is pretty astrokhan for the boyfriend
      He is a zoot suited zoon politikon

      Mama's mini Babylon hits the kitchen
      (Can't) find the pills
      that she lives on, it's a plot
      See her world come crashing down, she's looking older
      The Prom Queen ain't so pretty now, like it or not

      It's just another little hell town story
      Another blaze of hopeless glory
      You don't have to end it for me
      It's gonna end all by itself

      Daddy's busy taking it, don't need the money
      Embezzles for the sake of it, its his job
      Tonight he's out and on the make, got a yearning
      Cruising for some cabaret Billy Bob

      Freddy's on the run again, tearing his way
      Thru the streets for fun again, cross that line
      Borrowed Daddy's gun again, no consequences
      Money buys you everything, even crime

      It's just another little hell town story
      Another case of rich man poor me
      You don't have to end it for me
      It's gonna end all by itself

      Can you feel the heat tonight, its aggressive
      Hot enough to start a fight, and it does
      Mama's shooting Daddy now, bang and it's all over
      Turns the gun upon herself, and it's done

      kids find out there's nothing left, all alone now
      Freddy jumps a freight train west, to Hollywood
      Daddy's little manikin still craves the good times
      She's so scared it's frightening, it ain't no good

      Oceans deep
      Drifting as you sleep
      Up on the eternal sea
      A ship sails

      When your ship comes in
      Will you be ready to sail with the tide
      And when your ship comes in
      Will it be a galley full of slaves
      Or a sun streaked schooner

      You came so far
      Between the rocks and shoals
      In the blinding night
      A may day

      When your ship comes in
      Will you step on board with a smile
      Or will they have to pressgang you
      Will the flag that flies in the wind
      Say friend or foe
      Will you know
      Or bear the mark of a pirate bold
      With a treasure chest full of fool's gold
      Fool's gold

      When your ship comes in
      Don't try to pack your case with hopes and dreams
      It's all behind you now
      This ain't no Sunday cruise this time you
      don't choose your destination
      And will a silent wave carry you away
      Or will the storm crash down so cold
      I spent a lot of fool's gold
      Fool's gold

      Will you be ready when your ship comes in
      When your ship comes in
      Will you be ready to sail with the tide
      When your ship comes in
      Will you be ready when your ship comes in
      When your ship comes in
      Will you be ready to sail with a smile
      When your ship comes in

      I'm moving slowly
      Trying to find my own way
      It's a struggle to get there
      When I'm feeling this way
      Is there someone to call
      I can't seem to think
      How can I go on
      When I'm on the brink
      Pale mornings stale with memories
      I pick up my life and it's empty

      I've had a lot of luke warm
      Faded mutations of love
      I've gone as far as I can
      I need something I am sure of
      Subtle as crows
      Teach me again
      I've learned about lonely
      And nothing ‘bout friends
      Pale mornings stale with memories
      I feed off the lies that were fed me
      I feed off the lies that were fed me

      Can't go on
      On and on
      How can I go on
      I'm calling
      All our lives
      We will strive
      Tell me what it means
      The danger lies
      In trying to fly
      When you've no wings
      In your eyes
      There's a smile
      That's all I need

      I want something to believe in
      I'm tired of feeling this way
      I got nowhere left to get to
      Nowhere to go anyway
      Time moving on
      I reach for the past
      Will you be there
      If I call you at last
      Pale mornings stale with memories
      I pick up my life and it's empty
      I feed off the lies that were fed me
