Complex

On the one hand
There is the warmth of adoration
While on the other hand
There is your sense of self-respect
While on the one hand
There is a spiritual love
And on the other hand
There is the hunger of the flesh
On the one hand
There’s transcendental meditation
But on the other hand
There are all your worries to distract
On the one hand
There is that great big house
On the other hand
There is your total inability to connect

And some don’t pick up the pieces
Some don’t know what becomes of them
And some won’t wrestle with pieces
Some just don’t know what to do with them
But I might rest on the big men
I might feed on their scraps

Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Does the whore recognize
All of the lives that she wrecked
Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Is it a cure or just a drug
In all these discotheques
Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
When everything we want
Has got it’s hands around our necks
Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Oh mother of God
It’s all so complex

Gray pistol black pistol
Hungry little knife
Everything I carry in the back of my mind
Make a trade for my days
Take the money
Take a wife
Everything looks different from the back of my mind

Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Does the whore recognize
All the lives that she wrecked
Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Is this a cure or just a drug
In all these discotheques
Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
When everything we want
Has got its hands around our necks
Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Oh mother of God
It’s all so complex

For the spirit of the infirmity, I never ask God to heal him,
I have to find that spirit and command that devil to turn lose

If I walk like Jesus
If I talk like Jesus
If I walk like Jesus
And I talk like Jesus
If I walk like Jesus
And I talk like Jesus
If I walk like Jesus
Could I walk like Jesus
If I talk like Jesus
And I walk Jesus
If I walk like Jesus
And I talk like Jesus

And do I have to decide
Do I have to decide
If I’m a hole in the wall
Oh I can see it all
And is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Everything we want has got its hands around our necks
Is this my movie
Do I act or direct
Oh mother of God
It’s all so complex

Nobody came to throw the flowers on the grave
And the town lay down underneath the blanket of rain
Oh we waited so long for a sign
That we could be saved
As we drowned in the sound
Of the beach being touched by the waves

That godammed man
He seemed to know what’s inside out
And whispering
Showed us there was no need to shout
Oh you know that godammed man
He took us for all we had
Oh and that with nothing
We noticed it was not so bad
Not so

Nobody came to throw the flowers on the grave
And the town lay down underneath the blanket of rain
Oh we waited so long for a sign
That we could be saved
As we drowned in the sound
Of the beach being touched by the waves

That goddammed man
Said time was something we made up
You made the wine he said
Now you can drink the cup
That godammed man
He took us for all we had
Oh, left then with nothing
We noticed it was not so bad
Not so

Nobody came to throw the flowers on the grave
And the town lay down underneath the blanket of rain
And we waited so long for a sign
That we could be saved
As we drowned in the sound
Of the beach being touched by the waves

We’re not strong
Like young love
We can’t keep up
So don’t expect us to
No we’re not strong
Like young love
We can’t keep up
So don’t expect us to

Nobody came to throw the flowers on the grave
And the town lay down underneath the blanket of rain
Oh we waited so long for a sign
That we could be saved
As we drowned in the sound
Of the beach being touched by the waves


Simple

Hold on
Take a deep breath
Could it be that I have stumbled upon
Some big truth
Some little death
Was it a holy vision
That I felt coming on
Oh everything looks different
In the red glow of dawn yeah

Golden times, peaceful days
Useless weight
Fortune’s made patience for a passing phase
Golden times, peaceful days
Useless weight
Fortune’s made patience for a passing phase
Golden times, peaceful days
Useless weight
Fortune’s made patience for a passing phase
Golden times, peaceful days
Useless weight
Fortune’s made patience for a passing phase

It’s all so simple now
And so we hold on
Take a deep breath
Could it be that I have stumbled upon
Some deep truth
Some little death
Was it a holy vision
That I felt coming on
Everything looks different
In the red glow of dawn yeah

It’s all so simple now
He sits at the waterfall
With no more need to have it all
And sinks like a setting sun
The beauty has just begun
Yeah like a dog on the interstate
You make a narrow escape

And so you hold on
Take a deep breath
Could it be that I have stumbled upon
Some deep truth
Some little death
Was it a holy vision
That I felt coming on
Oh, everything looks different
In the red glow of dawn yeah


Slip

Parted like a golden sea
Adrenaline rushes through me
Feels fast
Hope the moment lasts forever
Yeah
In perfect pink and gold it contained you
Framing you so well
Slip
And though the night was cold
It was warm for you
Slip
As far as you could tell
Slip
And by the headlight’s glow
We lost control
Into perfect red I watched you go
Slip
You leave me wondering
How long I can survive

Take what we can from this
Take everything we need to live
Breathe in every inch of this
For my love
Blush red over my pale skin
The moon unscathed above our heads
Dizzy, I feel your hands on me
And I sink

I slip
In perfect pink and gold
It contained you
Framing you so well
Slip
And though the night was cold
It was warm for you
As far as you could tell
Slip
By the headlight’s glow
We lost control
Into perfect red I watched you go
Slip
You leave me wondering
How long I can survive

This delicate slip is a perfect fit
I can’t keep my hands off of it
Pink and gold and the headlights glow
And, I’m not myself
Your silken slip is a perfect fit
I can’t keep my hands off of it
Pink and gold and the headlights glow
I’m not myself

Feels so good to feel like this
Sink inside and slip in it
I fade from view against the black
Single star arching it’s back
Feels so good to feel like this
Sink inside, slip in it
I fade from view against the black
Single star arching it’s back
Feels so good to feel like this
Sink inside, slip in it
I fade from view against the black
Single star arching it’s back
A single star arching it’s back
A single star

In perfect pink and gold,
It contained you, framing you so well
Slip
And though the night was cold
It was warm for you
As far as you could tell
Slip
By the headlight’s glow
We lost all control
In a perfect red I watched you go
Slip
You leave me wondering how long, how long, how long

This delicate slip is a perfect fit
I can’t keep my hands off of it
Pink and gold and the headlights glow and I’m not myself
Feels so good to feel like this
Sink inside and slip in it
I fade from view against the black
Single star arching it’s back


Shadow

Oh no, wasting away
Better try for something new
I’d really like to stay but I’m leaving
Oh no, here comes another day
Better try for something new
Say what you wanna say to the ceiling

This is not about the way you walk
This is not about the way you talk
It’s about the choice you made and the price we’re paying
This is not about the way you move
This is not about the way I burn
It’s all about your shallow shadow

Oh no, wasting away
Better try for something new
I’d really like to stay
But I’m leaving
Oh no, here comes another day
Better try for something new
Say what you wanna say
To the ceiling

Cause you’re chemical laden
Kicking the gate in
And growing so hollow
Yeah, you been chemical laden
Kicking the gate in
And growing so hollow
And you know

This is not about the way you walk
This is not about the way you talk
It’s about the choice you made and the price I’m paying
This is not about the way you move
This is not about the way I burn
It’s all about your shallow shadow

All about your shallow shadow

And that’s why when your lover tells you
Not to wear your heart upon your sleeve
It’s all you can do to keep still
When you know you’re not invited
And they’re happy when you leave
You wonder if you’ve taken your fill

Oh and you know
This is not about the way you walk
This is not about the way you talk
It’s about the choice you made and the price I’m paying
This is not about the way you move
This is not about the way I burn
It’s all about your shallow shadow

All about your shallow shadow
All about all about
Your shallow shadow

Oh no, wasting away
Better try for something new
Say what you wanna say
To the ceiling
Oh no, here comes another day
Better try for something new
I’d really like to stay
But I’m leaving


Lucid

Leaving your life
To it’s means
Shut down inside
But still remain
Labeled and lying
In our plain surroundings
Never unveil
Never seeing

Lights on
Lights on
Light
Lights on
Lights on
Light

your life
Has meaning
Without purpose
We lay sleeping

Lights on
Lights on
Light
Have you had enough
Lights on
Lights on
Light
Lights on
Lights on
Light
Have you had enough
Lights on
Lights on
Light
Light

Save all your sight
For seeing
Save all your tongues
For tasting
Pleasure exists
For the experiencing
Pleasure of humans
Only love

Lights on
Lights on
Light
Have you had enough
Lights on
Lights on
Light
Lights on
Lights on
Light
Have you had enough
Lights on
Lights on
Light
Have you had enough


Empire

Who makes up the numbers
Puts them in the places
I can adjust the details until all the places fit
Who puts up the buildings
Stacked up on the islands
Working through the night because they don’t know how to quit
What cuts up the pieces
Puts them on the table
Feeds them to you lovingly
Until it makes you sick
Watch in fascination
As we fall

We know it’s them on the phone and yet we take the call
You can’t fight love or death
Hey man, we got it all

Watch in fascination
As we fall
Watch in fascination
As we fall
Is the empire answering
Hello hello hello
Watch in fascination
As we fall


Tell me

We know it’s them on the phone and yet we take the call
You can’t fight love or death
Hey man, we got it all

Watch in fascination
As we fall
Is the empire answering
Hello hello hello
Oh, we know it’s them on the phone and yet we take the call
You can’t fight love or death
Hey, man we got it all


Equilibrium

Push the fishing boat
Out into the flow
Down on the cavern walls
The gateway’s exposed
Yeah and you start to wonder
Where are we going
And where have we gone
In the land of the blind
Are the visions all gone
In the land of the blind
Are the visions all gone
Yeah, you try to hold on
You try letting go
You try to make contact
But they’re never gonna touch you

You push, you pull
Equilibrium
You give, you take
Equilibrium
You push, you pull
Equilibrium
You give and you take
Equilibrium
Reach for equilibrium
Reach for equilibrium
Reach for equilibrium

Pull the fishing boat
Straight into the flow
and roll it over the water
With such presumed control
Yeah, and you start to wonder
Where are we going
And where have we gone
In the land of the blind
Are the visions all gone
In the land of the blind
Are the visions all gone
Yeah, you try to hold on
You try letting go
You try to make contact
But you never let them touch you


Remedy

Let’s you and I take a drive
The shadows are beginning to swarm
This winter we can survive
By keeping each other warm
And for every evil under the sun
There is a remedy
Or there’s none
If there is one then seek till you find it
If there is none, then never mind it

The more I know
The more I fear
The more I need to get you out of here
The more that you grow
The more than you see
The more I need to find a remedy
I’ll do anything
To make you feel alive
Oh, my Lord
Let’s you and I just drive

Let’s you and I take a drive
The shadows are beginning to swarm
This winter we can survive
By keeping each other warm
For every evil under the sun
There is a remedy or there is none
If there is one then seek till you find it
If there is none, then never mind it
The more I know
The more I feel
The more I need to get you out of here
The more that you grow
The more that you see
The more I need to find a remedy
I’ll do anything just to make you feel alive
Oh my Lord
Let’s you and I just drive

Lalalalalala there is a remedy
Lalalalalala just keep on driving

Lalalalalala there is a remedy (I need a remedy)
Lalalalalala just keep on driving

Lalalalalala there is a remedy
Lalalalalala just keep on driving
