4:45 AM

A quarter ‘till five in the morning

A challenge is in my mind

I’ll never let you down

I cannot fail

A sudden force, a sudden fierceness, a shot of power to my heart

The world is trying to block my path but all it does is waken an old rage

 

Where are my haters now? (Everywhere)

Are they the ones that doubted me that had no face?

They covet and fear me now (there’s much more, much worse)

But I am stained

And I’m not well

Cold derision, vile deception

The least that I can do is use them now

 

On the field on the road

All the rejection only made me stronger

And spite has been nursing my soul

Loneliness and grinding hours, I’ll decipher the pain when it’s over

Now time has come to end this fight

Till the last surge of blood and emotion

 

A moment of peace after midnight

This fight bearing down on me

But I will never let you down

I cannot fail

I can try harder, sleep less hours; I really wanna look you in your eyes

I could never take you off my mind, you’re part of this

When you come back, you’ll see the way things are now

 

SHALLOW AND DAFT

You want everything, you got a radio show
Cos you like everything you should get out of my world
They just happen to be in love with you, in love with you
But you happen to be so dangerous
So dangerous

 

They are not entertained so go sell your soul
They’re feeding on the waste, at least do something
I know you won’t, and they’re buying again now
They’re buying again now

 

You repeat everything cos you lack your own thoughts
You’re always playing old idols cos you’re tasteless and worn
Still they happen to be in love with you, in love with you
And you happen to be so dangerous
So dangerous

 

But they’ll never get this
No they’ll never get this
You still don’t get it

 

You never take risks, where they profit you go
But who the hell am I kidding? You must be proud of your shows
They just happen to be in love with you, in love with you
And you happen to be so dangerous so dangerous

 

They are not entertained so go and sell your soul
They’re feeding on the waste at least do something
I know you won’t, and you cannot regret it now
No you cannot regret it now, you cannot regret it now
You cannot regret it now
You can’t take it back

 

DJ

Good morning Los Angeles. You’re listening to PopRock Radio, Home of the inmortal stars. It’s 8 oclock the hour of worship. Bow down!!

 

They make me program that
I don’t think you understand
They speak through us
They trust what’s in the air
They were not trained to doubt
They’re shallow and daft

 

BACK MY STRENGTH

I just want back my strength
I don’t need the comfort of this quiet life
I’ll go back there to see what’s left
Will I be forgiven?
I must have lost my chance
While time did its dance passing by me

But I won’t sit here and wait there are better ways to fail
And they are far from here
The night is long and blesses him who leaves
If he leaves in tears

Naa, na na naa, na na naa…

 

Some things cannot be changed and I’ll be cursed and loathed
But I need to kill the man I have grown
And I only hope that there’s a desperate child grasping at my soul
I must get rid of my conscience

 

I sing this song as I leave
I can’t stand the weight of its naive words
Is it purging my skin, is it purging my soul?
Or it’s just more useless pain

And the ones that walked with me were hurt on the way to the far end
But I won’t sit here and wail there’s a better way to mourn
And that is fighting
The night is long and blesses him who leaves if he leaves in tears

Naa, na na naa, na na naa…

 

I just want back my strength
I don’t need the comfort of this quite life
I’ll go back there to see what’s left
Will I be forgiven?
I must have lost my chance
While time did its dance passing by me

But I won’t sit here and wait there are better ways to fail
And they are far from here
The night is long and blesses him who flees
If he flees in tears

 

THE SACRIFICE

I clear my eyes I see blurred skies
Sometimes I feel, most days I’m numb
Somewhere, someday I’ll face the sea with full hands
Rain will form mud, mud will form swamps,
My feet will bleed with thorns I tread the masters will think I’m trapped

 

I can’t decide
I can’t reach out
They claim one sacrifice
Will they hear me?
The rain

 

Night fell, I’m hurt
Stars lead my way

Cool breeze on my face
Waves crash on my chest

 

Morning light revealed my footprints on the sand
As I recede from my vain life into myself
Hear me calling the names of those who brought me out here in doubt and pain

 

I can’t decide
I can’t feel now
I can’t reach out
I can’t hear now
I can’t see now
They claim one sacrifice
Will they hear me?
The rain

 

SORROW

Around the fog, below the fog
Behind the fog, above the fog

I’ve been seen on their side
But I’ve been sober tonight
I’ve been seen lost at night
With fewer stars alight

 

Now I’ve got you to tell the story
And I’ve got you to resign to this world
And I feel all the sounds are so hollow
And I wish to desert all this sorrow

And I feel complete sorrow
Complete sorrow
Utter grief strikes you
Something’s so wrong
Something’s so foul
Closer to the sewers

Some will fight and some will not but all will lie

 

Around the fog, below the fog
Behind the fog, above the fog

I was so hurt, I was injured
The day I was born

I’ve been sober, I’ve been sober
Now I feel something
Now I’ve got you to desert all this sorrow

 

I reach to you to implore, make it go
All this grief, all the strain drives me so low
Complete sorrow, complete sorrow
Light won’t pierce this fog
Times are over, times are over, times are over you

Some are fragile some are not, but all are seeking shelter

 

Him: You got sunlight
Her: I brought sunlight for you
Him: But it’s too late
Her: Does that matter today?
Him: I’ve done things I can’t…
Her: oohhh forget…there’s no blame
Let’s head somewhere that’s safe
Him: To make this one a longer night

 

Were there signs before?
I never saw, flying or hiding, where?
Were there signs before?
The mission and the compromise
I must have been afraid
No one sang these words
The tremor of a broken voice can’t prevent this blood
Were there signs before?
Beauty held behind
All we hoped vanished before us
Were there signs before?
Festering wounds in a fostering world and all illusion gone
Were there signs before?
I believe I remember the wind in my ear, the message so unclear
Were there signs before?
If there were they could not be caught so how could I have fought?

 

Embrace the fog, take in the fog
Inhale the fog, breathe in the fog

I’ve got you to desert all this sorrow
I’ve got you to resign to this world
I can take you now to the outside
I can lead our procession to nowhere
I’ve got you to proclaim all the sorrow

 

MELANCHOLIA

Comb my hair I see that you’re crying

Wash my clothes, the blood stains are drying

Read me tales, the world will remain still

Teach me prayers I may need them one day

Call my friends they may think I’m not well
Watch me sleep, to be safe from those nightmares

Are those tears? Is it me that you cry for?

I can smell the fall, is there life in the starred skies?

Sing me songs to carry all these memories

 

In blood that night I was naked and crying, your arms and a half blue sky

A child that’s borne as fortune goes, that child will fear and suffer for love

We play outside cos’ our fate is to face the empty space, and that’s the we train

And my heart was fine but my soul was sick and dying

But my heart was fine so my soul was to heal and follow
I’m ready to grow, to fight and stand, to stay alive and feel

I’m ready to stand, to grow and fight to stay alive and… Wait!!

I hear it coming, I think I should take that train

 

The world is a train travelling at the speed of sound

But you think it doesn’t move

The world is a stone drifting at the speed of light

You’re so sure it will always move
The sky looks the same but look at me I’ve changed

As all the stars up in the skies have kept distance from me

It may be too late but I am still awake

I never put my dreams to rest so now they can heal me
Is it worth the pain?

Is it worth the pain?

Is it worth it? Is it worth it?
