Shine

Rising up and then down you fell
all rung out or so they'd like to tell
For all your damage you do well
Hey, hey, brave new world of buy and sell
Sold to a lie - why fortify?
When all your dreams, your dreams are gonna die?

Shine, shine, shine
Burning bright in the heat of your prime
Shine, shine, shine
Sum of life my summer sometime

Murder, rage, and misanthropy
People they, they play like bad TV
and all my heroes look like me
I'll have my cape some day, wait and see
And I will fly - fortify
Find out, fall into the future
Fully I

Shine, shine, shine
Burning bright in the heat of your prime
Shine, shine, shine
Sum of life my summer sometime
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(The sun is coming out again to shine)

In the boneyard of my better days
picking over what bright remains
I'm satisfied, I am - no
complaints, no bitter haze
I'm fortified by what I find
I got my peace of mind

Shine, shine, shine
Burning bright in the heat of your prime
Shine, shine, shine
Sum of life my summer sometime

Shine, shine, shine
Burning bright in the heat of my prime
Shine, shine, shine
Sum of life my summer sometime

shine, shine, shine
shine, shine, shine
shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine
shine, shine, shine
shine, shine, shine
ooooohhhh
shine, shine, shine
shine, shine, shine
shine, shine, shine
shine, shine, shine
shine


You're Too Much

You're like the others - you drink too much
I had my druthers, but it's your touch
that keeps me waiting
It's the madness in your eyes
and the danger in your smile

You're a liar
Sometimes you cheat
When you're on a bender
your mouth tastes sweet
You're a penny in the tip jar of life,
but you're shiny - and you're mine

And it's all too much, but it's all I know
You're too much and there I go
asking the same old questions,
trying to sort it out
Why did I choose you?

You drive me crazy, you keep me sane
You sooth my body, you wreck my brain
Stormy weather - stormy you, all thunder I -
both crashing through the night

And it's all too much, but it's all I know
You're too much and there I go
asking the same old questions,
trying to sort it out
Why did I choose you?

You're burnin' up dear
Where have you been?
Out all night runnin'
with some old boyfriend
Well, you know how that hurts me
Come and lay down by my side
There, there, touch me - I'm on fire

And it's all too much, but it's all I know
You're too much and there I go
asking the same old questions
I'll never sort it out
Why do I stay with you?

You're too much


Always

How have you been tonight, old flame?
Still burning bright within the
beast you'll never tame
Crumpled up and thrown away are we,
but there's something left today

Always that old feelin' now and then
Oh, I lie - it's all the time, old friend
Always in my heart you've always been
Always here between these lines

Did you do the things you said you would?
Well, me, I almost got famous
like you said I could
How I wish you were there to see
me freaking out everywhere

Always that old feelin' now and then
Oh, I lie - it's all the time, old friend
Always in my heart you've always been
Always here between these lines

The places that we used to love, torn down
Anachronistic me, another footnote to this town
And do I wanna drive away?
Well, hell, yes.
To west Tennessee, the country, any new address
Are we on the road to when? Are we?
Are we starting up again?

Always that old feelin' now and then
Oh, I lie - it's all the time, old friend
Always in my heart you've always been
Always here between these lines

Always that old feelin' now and then

Yeeeaaahhh

(Always that old feelin')
Always that old feelin'


Lifeboat

You like the ocean I need dry land,
more of your devotion, not this shifting sand
Ah, you swim too far
and I'm prayin' hard

Save my lifeboat (save my lifeboat)
Save my lifeboat (save it now) now, tonight
Save my lifeboat (save my lifeboat)
Save my lifeboat (save it now) now, tonight

(Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala)

Life's a-drowning, me on the shore
frantically waving, wanting you the more
My-my, watersign
I fear for you

Save my lifeboat (save my lifeboat)
Save my lifeboat (save it now) now, tonight
Save my lifeboat (save my lifeboat)
Save my lifeboat (save it now) now, tonight

Hey!
(Lalalalalalalala la)
Hey!
(Lalalalalalalala la)

I'll cry a river. Cursed are we:
me the island, you promised to the sea
My-my, watersign
Where can you be?

Save my lifeboat (save my lifeboat)
Save my lifeboat (save it now) now, tonight
Save my lifeboat (save my lifeboat)
Save my lifeboat (save it now) now, tonight

Hey!
(Lalalalalalalala la)
(Lalalalalalalala la)
(Lalalalalalalala la)
(Lalalalalalalala la)


Hiding From the Face of God

Here comes the shame
We're too much the same
Is love itself not enough?
We run from the light, our kind

Hiding from the face of God (hiding from the face of God)
We're hiding from the face of God (hiding from the face of God)
We're hiding from the face of God

No saving grace
With each embrace
one hand goes to pull the blinds
Are we cursed in the flesh? Unblessed?

Hiding from the face of God (hiding from the face of God)
Hiding from the face of God (hiding from the face of God)
We're hiding from the face of God

We...

(aaahhh, haaahhh, haaaaaahhh)

We're hiding from the face of God (hiding from the face of God)
Hiding from the face of God (hiding from the face of God)
We're hiding from the face of God

We... are hiding from... the face of God

Hiding... from


California

I gotta try
to work your head, to change your weary mind
You look to the West,
but like I told you, daddy knows the best
Again...

Yeah, I just wanna warn ya
they'll pillage and they'll porn ya
out in California
no one there will mourn ya
stars and all, they'll scorn ya

California
can afford ya
California

Seek and you find
that, pretty-pretty, wand'ring will unwind
these blue bye-the-byes
beaming in your big ol' cartoon eyes
Not good...

Yeah, I just wanna warn ya
they'll pillage and they'll porn ya
out in California
no one there will mourn ya
stars and all, they'll scorn ya

California
can afford ya
California

In my dream you've lost your head
You are there in some director's bed
on your stomach, all greased up and he says,
"I'm gonna make you a star!"

Yeah, I just wanna warn ya
they'll pillage and they'll porn ya
out in California
no one there will mourn ya
stars and all, they'll scorn ya

California
can afford ya
California


Get in Line

Atumble down the old times
You stumble on the red lies
You fell from the Starlite 9
I promise not to tell
how the planets forgot to spin

Kinda like a pipe dream,
warmer than a wet dream
A dreamy little place to be,
at the bottom of your well
Me fishing you out again

Will you ever get in line,
loser from another time
Lover from the galaxy,
from the Milky Way to me
New coming down to earth,
you'll never win

Are you gonna pull a monster
or be human again, learn
broken toy of the future
Let's raise a little hell
Read the papers - we might as well

Will you ever get in line,
loser from another time
Lover from the galaxy,
from the Milky Way to me
New coming down to earth,
we'll never win

(Are you gonna pull a monster?)

Are you gonna get in line,
loser from another time?

Are you gonna get in line,
loser from another time?

Are you gonna get in line,
loser from another time?

Are you gonna get in line,
loser from another time?

Are you gonna get in line,
loser from another time?

Are you gonna get in line...


Break My Heart

Break my heart - you break me, you buy me
Tear me all apart again and again, see
You win, I lose a game I choose
Don't fail to remind me

Treat me right
Wrong me right now
Hold me oh so tight
Come on, squeeze me, forget awhile

I must be the bottom 'cause you definitely are the top
It's a crime that we're livin', time bomb tickin' clock won't stop

Waste my time just a little
Waste my time, time
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Break my heart (break it, break my heart)
Break my heart (break it, break my)

Here we go!

Hey!

Make your mark - scars on my heart now
Leave me in the dark, blind to the blue art
I must be the bottom 'cause you definitely are the top
It's a crime that we're livin', time bomb tickin' clock won't stop

It's a crime that we're livin'
It's a crime, crime
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Break my heart (break it, break my heart)
Break my heart, yeah (break it, break my)

Break my heart
Break my heart, yeah, yeah, yeah
Break my heart, no, no, no, no, no, no
Break my

(Ah)


Source of Life (Sorrow)

Sorrow, you billionaire
whisp'ring sweet, putting flowers in my hair
Sorrow, am I not your girl?
Your angel? Your blue pearl?
Are we the embers? Are we the fire,
Sorrow, my desire?

Meet the monster and his broken bride...

I do
You're my little prize, the source of my life
I do
You're my little prize, source of life

Sorrow, I've paid the price
Sold to you my device
Rainbow of madness, rich and rare,
Sorrow, you billionaire

Stumbling down the aisle, you by my side...

I do
You're my little prize, the source of my life
I do
You're my little prize, source of life

Meet the monster and his broken bride
(Stumbling down the aisle, you by my side)
Meet the monster and his broken bride...

I do
You're my little prize, the source of my life
I do
You're my little prize, the source of my life
I do
You're my little prize, the source of my life
I do
You're my little prize, source of life


Love Will Out

"Oh, you know how hard it gets,"
she says to the dark. "Not easy to forget
the dream of the dream that died into regret.
The world a broken symphony still, ever yet."

"Love will out.
No need to sort it out,"
I kindly say.

"Now look at me - all give no gain.
Some failed romantic, faltering, afraid,"
she says. "I traveled far on a tortured plain
to secure myself in an ivory tower, some bitter flame."

Girl on fire,
high upon a wire,
wasting away.
And I say...

Love will out, love will out, love will out
Love will out, love will out, love will out
Love will out, love will out, love will out
(Love will out)

"Oh god," she cries. "He'll be my death.
The things I said, the way we moved...a warm waste of breath.

Bliss me blind,
my bloody valentine,
sealed with a kiss.
And you say..."

Love will out, love will out, love will out
Love will out, love will out, love will out
Love will out, love will out, love will out
(Love will out)

(love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love)

Love will out, love will out, love will out
Love will out, love will out, love will out
Love will out, will out, will out

Love will out, love will out

"Oh, you know how hard it gets," she says to the dark.


Leaving You Behind

You win some; you lose some
Winsome loser I,
I don't have anyone
I won't lie

Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
I lost my mind
Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
What was I hopin' to find?
Leavin' you behind

Leavin' you behind
What was I thinkin' of?
Angel come lately,
down from up above

Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
I lost my mind
Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
What was I hopin' to find?
Leavin' you behind

Leavin' you behind I,
I guess I lost my mind
Like a pill, with my hands made for strangers,
I'll cling to anyone who reminds me of you

Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
I lost my mind
Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
What was I hopin' to find?

Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
I lost my mind
Leavin' you behind (leavin' you behind)
What was I hopin' to find?
Leavin' you behind
I lost my mind
Leavin' you behind


Full Foward Angel

Bound to the promise I made when we met

No hesitation, no rile, no regret
No clinging onto, no vine mine, no low
All resolution come letting you go

Miracle us for a moment at best
Beating of wings, bleeding heart in my chest
Full in the flesh, of the devil in me
How further blessed in this world could I be?

(Fly away my little angel; little angel go so far)

Full forward angel
Full forward angel
Full forward angel
Go far - so far

Hold to your halo, hang on to all this
Holy of holies, your name on my lips
Full forward angel - full fine now, full free
Pale and ascending, your warm memory

(Fly away my little angel; little angel go so far)

Full forward angel
Full forward angel
Full forward angel
Go far - so far

Full forward angel
Full forward angel
Full forward angel
Go far - so far

Full forward angel

Yeah, yeah

Full forward angel

Forward
