Splinter Lyrics

Entire Album Lyric Document...

''Half Life''

Half Life wastes before it goes
It's funny how your bee sting touch never leaves me whole
It's not enough to stay here almost trying
You keep your last laugh watch this dying
It's just your half time vertigo
And if you want an answer I don't know

 

(If you had completed me
Don't think I'd be pleased with you
Don't think I'd compete with you
With half of me to take) X1


Half Life nothing I'd call home
It's lucky how these phantom limb bee stings never show
It's not enough to leave this falling kindly
You burn my star down twice as brightly
It's just your half light undertow
But if you need forgiveness I don't know

 

(If you had completed me

Don't think I'd be pleased with you

Don't think I'd compete with you

With half of me to take) X1

Half light breaks with nothing wrong
Just a corner of my bed where you don't belong
It's kind of you to notice no-one's dying
You had your last laugh almost crying
It's just your half life long to know
And if you need a reason so it goes

(If you had completed me

Don't think I'd be pleased with you

Don't think I'd compete with you

With half of me to take) X1

''Low Five''

It takes too much to please me
Attached but no real feeling
High fives and corporate anthems
Nothing comes to mind

Kite-marked for true low standards
Where more wants all and no less
Just change with no real progress
Nothing comes to mind
I want higher
Still nothing comes to mind

(Give me a Low Five
Cos I can't help myself
I'm a Low Five downsize no-one else
Do you love yourself) X1


These altered states and egos
Potential less than zero
Found God in San Diego
Nothing comes to mind

 

(Give me a Low Five

Cos I can't help myself

I'm a Low Five downsize no-one else

Do you love yourself) X1

I half expect to find myself
In full control of nothing else
Lost hope but learnt to hope less
Nothing comes to mind
I want higher
Still nothing comes to mind

(Give me a Low Five

Cos I can't help myself

I'm a Low Five downsize no-one else

Do you love yourself) X2

''Lightning Field''

Strike me down give me everything you've got
Strike me down I'll be everything I'm not
Count the questions on one hand you don't ask me what I planned
Strike me down should have asked me what went wrong
Strike me down should have stayed away too long

Strike me down give it everything you've got
Chance me now I'll be everything I'm not
Hope's the child of what luck brings
Points the faith in higher things
Ask me now fire at everything at once
Strike me down take it anyway you want

Strike me down better left it all unknown
Strike me down should have left it all alone
Wash the questions off my hands
I'm the fate in no-one plans

Strike me down give it everything you've got
Strike me down I'll be everything I'm not

''Curl''

Now your future's got me told
Stopped breathing on my own
I Curl to break consent
To print the facts in stone

(Suppose for seconds you forget your past
Neglect to turn in think straight stand out last) X1

(And I just Curl now to help me find you out
We're keeping devils down and sleeping sound) X2


Now your newspeak's ageing thin
A pale and hanging faith
A devil sick on sin
Will Curl against its place

 

(Suppose for seconds you forget your past

Neglect to turn in think straight stand out last) X1

 

(And I just Curl now to help me find you out

We're keeping devils down and sleeping sound) X1

Itch to scratch
To strike my past before it's

Itch to scratch

To strike my past from all it's owed
It's sold

It's sold

(And I just Curl now to help me find you out

We're keeping devils down and sleeping sound) X2

''Destroying Angel''

I know you know my head's not in this now
Nothing you can keep so keep me down
Like the stones beneath the water that you walk on to be taller
And the hands you stuck together cause you prayed you'd wait forever
Just another fragile angel heart
Falling down on lead wings torn apart

(And the words beneath my skin
The ink that you put in
Destroying all the things you left around
Cos I'm earthbound coming down
Come down
Come down
Come around) X1


So what you have the nerve to call a friend
Is starved of all the sense to make amends
Cos I'm the glass you break to touch but you never want me much
Like the view across the water from your shoes and two feet smaller
I know it doesn't pay to be this hurt
Falling off the morning getting worse

 

(And the words beneath my skin

The ink that you put in

Destroying all the things you left around

Cos I'm earthbound coming down

Come down

Come down

Come around) X1

 

(Cos I'm down I'm down) X3

 

(I'm down) X2
 

''Empathy''

Her innocence above me
Today is dead she's around my head
Between my history between my headphones
This is her home forever her home

But I can't be her brother
To empower her to become her
Trawl through this forgiveness
My memory's so Empathy low

This attitude beneath her
It's evident it denies us
Proves herself to be closer
But not me forever not me

This sickness avoids all cure
Imperfection my downfall
Learn myself through symptoms
My memory's so
Empathy low

''Superbug''

I aim to bug you on your vacancy
Never complicate but you talk it cheap
You sense but you don't know
Too lame to catch a cold

Slowly the signs will read you dumb
Surely the times will feel you numb
I know the pains you took to show me
And i'm nothing but your Superbug for asking


I hate to bug you on your certainty
Never compromise you're just always weak
You care but you don't show
Too proud to catch the flow

Under all the truth and facts there's faith enough
If you can't live on love alone it isn't love

Slowly the signs will read you dumb
Surely the times will feel you numb
I know the depths you sunk to show me
I want the life the world still owes me
And I'm nothing but your Superbug for asking
Answer stamp me out


And I'd love to break your fall but no-ones asking me
Answer stamp me out

Slowly the signs with bind you dumb

Surely the times will feel you numb

I know the pains you took to show me

You said it hurts ahead to know me

And I'm nothing but your Superbug for asking

Answer stamp me out

''Flowers And Silence''

We're always too always in doubt
Works on me
She's nowhere she mainlines helps me out
Now I can speak
Was heard not seen wasted nothing's free
Was black was bruised fucked up twenty two
Was fucked up twenty two

And I'm amazed you eat you sleep you function at all
Cos my aim's so weak that I'd fail to get into my arm

 

Was made the first to laugh
Tried but the tribute short changed kindness
Flowers And Silence
Was made the first to laugh
Charmed but the weather broke me sober
I've never been colder

Seen braver seemed braver since then
But never been
No favours no saviours no sense
It's not in me
So nothing's free ghostdrunk out of reach
So action this cared less never missed
And you preach you teach did I learn you nothing at all
I'm too dumb to see but you stooped for someone this small

 

Was made the first to laugh
Tried but the tribute showed me priceless
Flowers And Silence
Was made the first to laugh
Charmed but the weather broke me sober
I've never been colder

You'll always be closing me down
Works on me
Denied me remind me
I'm sold out
Just skin and teeth

Left black and bruised fucked up nothing new
Was heard not seen wasted nothing's free

''Cute Sushi Lunches''

I'm pretty raw with it
Cute Sushi Lunches
Nineteen steps from out under your feet
Can't eat won't eat
Have have not me

 

(Can't eat won't eat
Cute Sushi Lunches) X2


I'm pretty down on this
Cold feel excuses
One lane talk where art and life don't meet
Can't see won't see
Have have not me
Hate like a child hates his hair cut

(Can't eat won't eat

Cute Sushi Lunches) X1

 

''Ten To Twenty''

Different ways of counting fingers running through your hair
Ten To Twenty lifelines if you doubt how this compares
There's fear enough to share a fear of loathing
So easy how you bare the trace of me without you there

(So fall like the snow too much too slow
So fragile to say hanging over everyday
A breeze with contempt to shame the others
A story so thin to cater all your lovers) X1


Count me out your standards shadow trade in competence
Ten To Twenty answers shouting down on confidence
Too easy not to share too vain for secret
There's fear enough in there a taste of need in someones care

(So fall like the snow too much too slow

So fragile to say hanging over everyday

A breeze with contempt to shame the others

A story so thin to cater all your lovers) X2

''Splinter''

I see you couldn't catch your breath
Believe me it's all that it must be
You see I never said my piece
If only you left it that easy
Fractured we have been since sometime sixteen
Failure was on me cause your ideals bore me

Does it take the fireworks to make you look in wonder
Would you give reaction to the cause I'm under
So coloured by you but your monkey messed it up
Surrendered by you your monkey's long-while had enough

(You're like scissors in my coat
You're like Splinters in my cup) X1


I know you couldn't care me less
Keep hoping it's all only token
You know I never had my say
If only you'd keep it that open
Loser I have been but its so lost on me
Splintered I will be when your peace breaks cheap
Does it take the fireworks to make you look in wonder
Would you give reaction to the cause I'm under
Three colour blind you but your monkey messed it up
Surrendered by you your monkey's long-while had enough

(You're like scissors in my coat

You're like Splinters in my cup) X1

''Wife By Two Thousand''

Never so complete just failing on it's feet
Choking out these last few days here
Never ever lied all confidence at all times
Trying hard to love myself
I think that I need some working on so work on me
I think that nothing's getting through so get to me
Just another no show waste of passing go
Christ knows how we get to be here

(No one's broken no one's beaten
I can see a rainbow near them
I can see a rainbow

I can see a rainbow) X1

Never so confused just laughed out cost abused
Aiming loosely your direction
Always too extreme all cause and case to plead

Striving hard despite yourself
I think that I need some working on so work on me
I think that nothing's getting through so get to me
Just another no name taken passing blame
Christ knows what we get to be here

 

(No one's broken no one's beaten

I can see a rainbow near them

I can see a rainbow

I can see a rainbow) X1

Always coming clean all case and cause to bleed
Trying hard to like yourself
Never so complete just failing on it's feet
Choking out these last few breaths here
I think that I need some working on so work on me
I think that nothing's getting through so get to me
Just another no show scissors paper stone
Christ knows why we get to be here

(No one's broken no one's beaten

I can see a rainbow near them

I can see a rainbow

I can see a rainbow) X1
