'Fighter'

Whatcha doin’

Whatcha doin’ to my world?
She’s telling me she’s got to believe
That she can really hear the earthquake
That she can truly feel the ground shake
On her own
She’s frantic like a runaway thief
Fault lines for the cracks in the pavement
Damaging internal statements
When she’s on her own
She’s fighting the flames just to cool down
Riding the waves on the slowdown
She’s always been a Fighter
She’s always been a Fighter
Whatcha doin’?

whatcha doin’ to my world?
She looks over her shoulder again
Checking someone owns the voices

Checking someone owns the voices
No more options just hard choices
On her own
Paralysed and powerless
Feeling speeded up and crawling

Feeling speeded up and crawling
Never hits the ground for falling
When she’s on her own
She’s fighting the flames just to cool down
Riding the waves on the slowdown
She’s always been a Fighter
She’s always been a Fighter
Fighting the flames just to cool down

Whatcha doin'?
Riding the waves on the slowdown

Whatcha doin’?
She’s always been a Fighter
She’s always been a Fighter
Hopeless as the stars align
To stop her slipping into the vortex
She never really gets the context
On her own
She’s breaking the spell of her outrage
Bending the bars of her own cage
She’s always been a fighter
She’s always been a fighter
Whatcha doin’?

Whatcha doin’ to my world?

Whatcha doin’?
Fighter

Fighter
She’s fighting the flames just to cool down

just to cool down
Riding the waves on the slowdown

on the slowdown
She’s always been a Fighter

Fighter
She’s always been a Fighter

Fighter
A Fighter

A Fighter

A Fighter
Fighter

Fighter

'Child In The Dark'

Look down and you'll see it like a satellite
Wake up and you'll follow every sunrise
Don't treat it like a prototype
Take a hold don't throw it away on hindsight
You're not yourself no gravity
Is it something that I'm missing?
Forgive yourself get lost in me
Is it someone that I’m missing?
You’re a satellite satellite satellite
And you’re looking for attraction
But your stars won't let it be
You’re just a Child In The Dark oh oh
Always a satellite satellite satellite
And if you're running round in circles
Take a straight line back to me
I won't tear you apart oh oh
Back down if you put me on a pedestal
High up like a distant garbage angel
Don't send me any valentines
Get a grip take me home alone don't waste time
Forget yourself get lost in me
Is it something that I'm missing?
Forgive yourself some vanity
Is it someone else you're missing?
You’re a satellite satellite satellite
And you’re looking for attraction
But your stars won't let it be
You’re just a Child In The Dark oh oh
Always a satellite satellite satellite
And if you're running round in circles
take a straight line back to me
I won't tear you apart oh oh
Oh you’re spinning electric down my spine
Don’t ever forget that you’re running out of time
You live in the past live for tomorrow
You’ve got to release your grip and let it go
You are spinning electric down my spine
Don’t ever forget that you’re running out of time
Oh you live in the past live for tomorrow
You’ve got to release your grip and let it go
Child In The Dark
Child In The Dark
Child In The Dark
Child In The Dark
I won’t tear you apart

'Alibis'

You’re cellophane
You think that you got it wrapped up
With your brutal suffocating ways
Like cellophane
Spreading yourself too thin
To begin to feel anything
Oh all the fear all the lies

What you think you need to survive
The crisis is moving in over and over the same thing
From X to Y to Z comply
Heartache barely keeps you alive
The crisis is coming over and over the same thing
Alibis

Alibis
Like Alibis
Smiling like a sunbeam
Furious as creeping fire and grazing ice
And your Alibis
Tongue-tied smoke and mirrors
Left stuttering in bleach and lights
Cellophane
Oh all the fear all the lies
What you think you need to survive
The crisis is moving in over and over the same thing
From X to Y to Z comply
Heartache barely keeps you alive
The crisis is coming over and over the same thing
Did you find that you’re lost?
Oh let us fall down through the cracks in the pavement
If you find that you’re lost
Nothing nothing is safer
Did you find that you’re lost?
The cracks are the same whether sidewalk or pavement
Who’s keeping score?
Nothing is sacred 

Nothing is sacred
You’re like cellophane
You think that you got it wrapped up with your brutal suffocating ways
Oh all the fear all the lies
What you think you need to survive
The crisis is moving in over and over the same thing
From X to Y to Z comply
The heartache barely keeps you alive
The crisis is coming over and over the same thing
You’re like cellophane
You think that you got it wrapped up with your brutal suffocating ways

'So Far Gone'

The sun ate the moon swallowed the weather
Busy old fool now the days last forever
The center won't hold exempt of the rules
To burn through the night to sound the retreat
It fractures the whole a brutal excuse
Frantic like a child from panic to attack
So Far Gone never reformed way round wrong
Fall so hard into the storm way off course
The sun ate the moon swallowed the weather
A beautiful gesture a beautiful future
We rise from the ashes for worse or for better
The sun ate the moon swallowed the weather
A summer of love cooled to an autumn
Tumble and fall and striking out for heaven
So Far Gone never return no safe ground
Hate so hard teach us to learn won't back down
The sun ate the moon swallowed the weather
A beautiful gesture a beautiful future
We rise from the ashes for worse or for better
The sun ate the moon swallowed the weather
The sun ate the moon swallowed the weather
A beautiful gesture a beautiful future
We rise from the ashes

'Immaculate Hearts'

All I’ve done the victories and the trials
All I’ve become you know that I’ve tried god I’ve tried
Feel my center
Know it’s gentle
I want you to hold if we splinter again
Immaculate Hearts break apart but they mend
Never intended to take us so low
Losing the strength babe I need you to hold
All that has gone and the lines and the years on your face
It’s comfort some that the dust from the stars will remain
So no to mourning
And so to nothing
I want you to hold if we splinter again
Immaculate Hearts break apart but they mend
Never intended to take us so low
Losing the strength babe I need you to hold
If we could retrace our way out of this maze
Will you still have the heart to be pure to be brave?
Never intended to take us this low
I need you to save us I need you to hold
Immaculate Hearts
Immaculate Hearts
Immaculate Hearts
Immaculate Hearts

'No Show'

So you say you're very close to feeling close to nothing
You're not sure of what you've got but you don't want it
Shall we deconstruct the morning breakdown?
I don't think so
You're a shadow of the weekend lately
I'm a No Show
And I'm all out of sympathy
We're too far so bad for me
I was caught in the rush a long time believe me
I was caught in the rush the push and shove the two of us
I was caught in the rush a long time believe me
I was caught in the rush the push and shove the two of us
Shall we say we think today is not our day?
And tomorrow's not looking that good anyway
If you want to be with me
Do I really have to be you?
And if I'm all that makes you happy well
I really didn't mean to
So take what you want and leave
We're too far so bad for me
Going to back yourself into a corner
I was caught in the rush a long time believe me
Shall we call excesses to order?
I was caught in the rush the push and shove the two of us
You should be walking the streets with yourself
I was caught in the rush a long time believe me
I’m through trying to know how to help
I was caught in the rush the push and shove the two of us
Going to back yourself into a corner
Shall we call excesses to order?
You should be walking the streets with yourself
I’m through trying to know how to help
I’m through trying to know how to help
Shall we call excesses to order?
You should be walking the streets with yourself
I’m through trying to know how to help
I’m through trying to know how to help
I was caught in the rush a long time believe me
I was caught in the rush the push and shove the two of us
I was caught in the rush a long time believe me
I was caught in the rush the push and shove the two of us

'Tranquillity Trap'

And I dreamt I was crawling
Through the fire of decadence
You were with me and smiling
Like a god of innocence
The parasite in the host
The machine in the ghost, failing
Oh it’s suffocating
The Tranquillity Trap from silence to a crash
Oh it’s devastating
The Tranquillity trap the devil on my back
And our histories shatter
Breaking order to entropy
I would offer my life if it mattered
To protect our sanctity
The parasite in the host
The machine in the ghost failing
Oh it’s suffocating
The Tranquillity trap from silence to a crash
Oh it’s devastating
The Tranquillity trap the devil on my back
Oh metallic tasting
The Tranquillity trap from silence to a crash
Oh it’s devastating
The Tranquillity trap oh the devil on my back

'SOS'

Should have done it sooner but I didn’t because
I don’t even know myself
Everything I’m based on is just something I was
And I can’t even sell myself
Oh mirror mirror hanging on the wall
Show me how to love myself
Should have done it sooner but I didn’t because
I don’t even trust myself
This is my SOS
These are the bridges I’m burning
I never needed such help
This is my SOS
I look much smaller seen from inside out
Far too small to see myself
Down on reflection, cast in hate and in doubt
Flawed and flaws I add myself
Oh mirror mirror hanging on the wall
Please just show me someone else
My hopes were low and I got so much so less
Nothing left to save myself
Each day a broken clock is true at least twice
Twice the odds I give myself
I know it would be kinda easier sometimes
If I felt like someone else
This is my SOS these are the bridges I’m burning
I never needed such help this is my SOS
I gave my level best these hands are drowning not waving
This is my SOS this is your heart and I’m breaking

'Stripes'

Oh they want us to make like tigers
Stripping the bones and bleeding the blameless dry
And the story that reads us as liars
Show you the stripes I earned the shameful way
There’s always killings to be made
A beautiful profit to turn from harm’s way
And it’s always the end of the world again
All the blood and the colours and the shades of pain
Our animal nature our cynical nature
And it’s always the end of the world again
Head to toe in an unbreakable arithmetic
Our animal nature our cynical nature
And they’re running us round into butter
Grinding us down into so much ash and dust
And they want us to make like tigers
Eating our own as we choke on the love we’ve lost
There’s always killings to be made
A beautiful profit to turn from harm’s way
And it’s always the end of the world again
All the blood and the colours and the shades of pain
Our animal nature our cynical nature
And it’s always the end of the world again
Head to toe in an unbreakable arithmetic
Our animal nature our cynical nature

'Paper Room'

You can’t work out the codes in my head
Every time I try to second-guess the machine
I feel the laughter and the taunting logic
The lights are on but there’s nobody home
I will never know the life that grows inside the wires
Opening all the doors freezing me to the core
The Paper Room it will defeat you
There was never anyone inside
The Paper Room it will deceive you
Mortal confusion swimming against the tide
Perceptions pained our future regrets
And the grip that we’re fighting to hold and curb the unknown
Becomes a coded brand new apocalypse
The surface cracked and we’re so panicked and bent
There’s a learning deeper than our minds could ever go
The inevitability the death to the ego
The Paper Room it will defeat you
There was never anyone inside
The Paper Room it will deceive you
Mortal confusion swimming against the tide

'Black Rain'

I’m holding on but then the sky comes falling in
Trying to write a love song but this is not a love song
Aching limbs I see the storm clouds are closing in
Come wash me away come wash me away
There will always be confusion in the air
But don’t be scared to take a breath my love
The universe just doesn’t care
The desolation the ticking time bomb
This is not a love song
Black Rain

Black Rain

Why does it pour in my heart?
Close my eyes I see there is no edge to me
Only consciousness only momentary
All horizons come and go for eternity
I can choose my pain I can choose my pain
Acid falling breaking cells beneath the skin
They can take my dignity
But they can’t take how I relate
The resolution the end of suffering
This could be a love song
Black Rain

Black Rain

Why does it pour in my heart?
Remember remember I remember
A sky pierced and bled ’til it’s white
Like entropy from dark matter
Comes a flashing light
I can’t find anyone
So I run into the red fog
Look straight in front of me
The cloud glides and rushes into the darkness
Everyone around me blurry faces
Emerge like ghosts from the fog
I am everything, I am nothing
In the red fire in the silent centre
I can’t find her

'Love Me Stupid'

Mouth to mouth give the life back to me again
Drink the milk medicate my system again
Cheek to cheek toe to toe eye for eye soul for soul
Give the love take the hit
Break my fall pay for it
Mouth to mouth breathe the love back to me again
Snow like teardrops
Softly falling
Across the rooftops
Love Me Stupid
Love Me Stupid
Love Me Stupid
Throw the rope drag me out from under again
Got to choke all the bad inside me to mend
Face to face heart to heart limb from limb role for role
Cheek to cheek toe to toe eye for eye soul for soul
Heart to heart beat the love back in me again
Snow like teardrops softly falling
Across the rooftops 

Love Me Stupid
Love Me Stupid

Love Me Stupid
Stupid
Snow like teardrops
Softly falling
Across the rooftops
Love Me Stupid
Love Me Stupid
Love Me Stupid

'Lifeline'

And you say you love me
That you're thinking of me
That you'll never let me down
Then you say you need me
That you'll never leave me
That you'll always be around
All in all we're nothing to save
Just a touch too little when it's all too late
Turning off and just flaking out
If you’ve fallen chasing then just stay down
Why should I
Offer you a helping hand a Lifeline?
I'm not the good Samaritan
You and I
Should but we don't feel the need to even try
We're just the passers-by
And you keep and feed me
Don't make my heart bleed
Free love free misery
What you call charity
Don't wish it on me
Save it for your enemies
More and more the missing link stays
Just your lazy thumbs and hang-ups on display
Crawling off animal improved
Too much evolution's living truth
Why should I offer you a helping hand a Lifeline?
I'm not the good Samaritan
You and I should but we don't feel the need to even try
We're just the passers-by
And you say you love me
That you're thinking of me
That you'll never let me down
Then you say you need me
That you'll never leave me
That you'll always be around
Why should I offer you a helping hand a Lifeline?
I'm not the good Samaritan
You and I should but we don't feel the need to even try
We're just the passers-by
Oooh I’m not the good Samaritan

'Pink Noise'

What you hear out your window
Crushing you down, it’s not letting you go
The tides of life neurons and heartbeats
Escaping commas, fighting for what you know
Your lungs are too full you shout like a crowd
Over the Pink Noise
You’re lost on the words that made you so proud
Over the Pink Noise
The red on the white we roll on the floor
Forever jaded
We’re fighting our fears we’re fighting for joy
Above the Pink Noise
Where’s your voice in a sea of overload?
Waves of judgement cancel you and leave you cold
Filtered muted alien messages
So much data ghosting until you submit
Your lungs are too full you shout like a crowd
Over the Pink Noise
You’re lost on the words that made you so proud
Over the Pink Noise
The red on the white we roll on the floor
Forever jaded
We’re fighting our fears we’re fighting the cause
Above the Pink Noise
Where’s your voice in a sea of overload?
Waves of judgement cancel you and leave you cold

'Come Like The Cure'

You look like I feel not up to much
The first to believe and the last to trust
If I had the ways and the means, I'd be obvious
But your one size fits
Makes me sick of the sight of us
Elias is the brother of your suffering
He's the weather we've been under as the days kick in
The infection left of promises you've given in
Elias is the brother of your suffering
I feel like you look when you're all made up
The last to be sentenced and the first to judge
If I paint the picture I'm sure I'd be clear enough
So just don't Come Like The Cure
‘cause your one size fits just does no good
Elias is the brother of your suffering
He's the weather we've been under as the days kick in
The infection left of promises you've given in
Elias is the brother of your suffering
Elias is the brother of your suffering
He's the weather we've been under as the days kick in
The infection left of promises you've given in
Elias is the brother of your suffering
Elias is the brother of your suffering
Elias is the brother of your suffering
Your suffering

'Squaring The Circle'

Burden’s such
Lost in the loop
Every little sand grain
Begging me to ordain
The two of us
Come back to you
Opening arms
Remember when the skies cleared
Remember that we’ve been here before
Once more Squaring The Circle
Forever returning and waving flags
The spiders in moonlight riches to rags
Oh you demon please
Gift these gods to me
The eternal glass
Of existence
Every pain every joy
Small to great we transform
Ourselves
Once more squaring the circle
Forever returning and waving flags
The spiders in moonlight riches to rags
Oh you demon please
Gift these gods to me
