About This Album

Lyrics

  • The Valley

    [Verse 1]
    These are days of hit and run
    In the stream with everyone
    Is a moment of our lives
    On a wandering river
    Going on together
    Many journeys to arrive

    [Chorus]
    I've been walking
    Through the valley
    Through the tall grass
    And the shadows
    And I feel it
    I can see it
    Yes I need it
    I believe it
    Through the city
    And the towers
    Turning minutes
    Into hours
    And I feel it
    I can see it
    Yes I need it
    I believe it

    [Verse 2]
    When I think I'm being strong
    And I lose direction
    Then a life starts looking mischievous
    Finding revelation
    Out of desperation
    Always stretching time
    But it's never long enough
    You think you're happy
    Think you're free
    But maybe we're just
    Comfortably dizzy

    [Chorus][x2]

  • [Verse 1]
    Dark sun rose on the ridge cut clear across the sky
    As good a day as any to die
    No reservation madam
    No reason to know why
    Running late stiletto heels
    Try to loosen up the wheels
    You spend your life in preparation for this day
    Breathe in the air; it's loaded with fame
    Check out those weapons sister before you hit the fray
    String of pearls meet bits of gems
    Enter the battle of the lenses

    [Chorus]
    Red carpet massacre
    Don't want to hassle you
    Red carpet massacre
    Death stalk paparazzi yeah
    Red carpet massacre
    It's going to mess with you
    We're in business
    You're on the hit list

    [Verse 2]
    There's not so many now still standing on their feet
    Their knives are out and singing so sweet
    Engage with sharper minds that cut you when you meet
    Any place to mess around
    When someone wants to take you down
    Maybe you think you're above this
    But baby we know that you love it
    Baby you know where to shove it
    Apply your lipstick
    For dying in public

    [Chorus]

  • [Verse 1]
    You're nocturnal
    Only come out at night
    And I'm learning
    All the ways you want to ride
    Because you're on the roam
    But not until the darkness arrives
    And I'm certain
    I'll catch up to you one of these times, baby
    Oh
    Can I get my hands on you tonight
    (I must be feeling something)
    Some thing tells me I'm in for a ride
    (I wonder if you see me coming)
    Can I put my hands on you tonight
    (One night has got me running)
    Something tells me I'm in for a ride
    (Right into your night time world because I'm a)

    [Chorus]
    Nite Runner
    I think I'm falling for you
    Nite Runner
    You got a style that put me under
    Nite Runner
    What you going to do with it now
    Nite Runner
    Nite, nite runner

    [Verse 2]
    Light scatters
    When you walk into the room
    Under shadow
    I can feel the heat in you
    Should I be surprised
    I see the possibility
    Moving right across to me
    And it all matters
    When I'm getting close to you, hey yeah
    Uh huh
    Can I get my hands on you tonight
    (I must be feeling something)
    Something tells me I'm in for a ride
    (I wonder if you see me coming)
    Can I put my hands on you tonight
    (One night has got me running)
    Something tells me I'm in for a ride
    (Right into your night time world because I'm a)

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    Love is haunting
    She wanted to go
    That's what she told me
    Love is haunting
    She wanted to go
    But I can't, can't

    [Chorus][x2]

  • [Verse 1]
    Once was a man who consumed his place and time
    He thought nothing could touch him
    But here and now it's a different storyline
    Like the straw he is clutching
    Why has the sky turned grey
    Hard to my face and cold on my shoulder
    And why has my life gone astray
    Scarred by disgrace, I know that its over

    [Chorus]
    Because I'm falling down
    With people standing round
    But before I hit the ground
    Is there time
    Could I find someone out there to help me?

    [Verse 2]
    Howl at the wind rushing past my lonely head
    Caught inside its own motion
    How I wish it was somebody else instead
    Howling at all this corrosion
    Why did the luck run dry
    Laugh in my face, so pleased to desert me
    Why do the cruel barbs fly?
    Now when disgrace can no longer hurt me

    [Chorus][x2]

  • [Verse 1]
    Box full of honey
    At the sharp end of the view
    The edge of me and you
    And all good sense had tread no further
    And as the ghost will shiver trees
    How I'm trembling on my knees
    But I'm still drawn on by the murmur

    [Chorus]
    Are you laughing at me now
    In my circumstance
    When still I wear I your crown
    My life's penitence
    And for what
    What's so funny
    A box full of honey

    [Verse 2]
    What I thought a pretty tune
    Was howling at the moon
    To keep me company this evening
    It's so lonely in the dirt
    A scratching at the hurt
    But I so generously did leave you

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    Is she flirting with me now
    Ohh
    Is she dallying with me now
    Ohh
    Ohhh
    Are you flirting with me now
    You'll always be my queen of tumble down
    Miss melancholy

    [Chorus]

  • [Verse 1]
    Walking under skies
    Waiting for the fall
    Meet me at the corner shop I'll show you it all
    Free you of your mind
    Something you won't find
    In the west-end pages with your google dirty fingers
    It's a skin dive
    In deep silence we are
    Going underwater
    It's a lifeline
    Teardrop, bullets, all night
    Dip into the water

    [Chorus][x2]
    Baby, that's what it feels like when you come up for air
    When you come up for air
    You feel brand new
    When you come up for air
    When you come up for air

    [Verse 2]
    Wipe us of the face
    Of the human race
    Whichever way you look it's indisposed or disgraced
    Fighting on the shore
    The hoi polloi want more
    Howling bloody murder but it's nothing just a murmur
    In your skin dive
    In deep silence we are
    Going underwater
    It's a lifeline
    Teardrop, bullets, all night
    Slip into the water

    [Chorus][x2]

    [Verse 3]
    A blushing rose is torn
    From these sugar walls
    I've misplaced my future could I please borrow yours?
    Panic on the scene
    You know what I mean
    Anything you want to be the only thing you want from me
    Is skin dive
    In deep silence we are
    Going underwater
    It's a lifeline
    Teardrop, bullets, all night
    Go inside the water

    [Bridge]
    Baby girl you're swimming
    A little too deep
    So deep, that I think you might hit a reef
    I think you low on oxygen
    And you're too glad to leave
    Baby girl swim to the top
    Grab my hand and hold me and breathe

    [Chorus][x2]

  • [Verse 1]
    You've been rising through the flow
    You require a little bit more
    To excite, you will go
    Getting busy on the floor
    All about the way you move it
    When you really got to prove it
    Finally you will know
    What it is you're turning on

    [Chorus]
    I am here to tempt you, oh yeah
    Like you know I'm meant to, oh yeah
    Devil going to tempt you, oh yeah
    How much do you want to? Oh, oh

    [Verse 2]
    Get back to London, coming undone
    When you ride the underground
    Some misguidance, breaking silence
    Got your body started now
    And you love the way you're moving
    When you really got to prove it
    Finally it's what you do
    What it is you're turning on

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 3]
    Night is going to tempt you, oh yeah
    Like you know it's meant to, oh yeah
    Devil going to tempt you, oh yeah
    Devil going to tempt you, oh yeah
    If you want to know, oh yeah
    Do you want to know? Oh yeah
    What it is you're turning on
    What it is you're turning on
    If you want to know
    What it is you're turning on
    Do you want to know
    What it is you're turning on

  • [Instrumental]

  • [Verse 1]
    Zooming in
    Stood on the line
    You understand
    I've been waiting forever
    Come rain come shine
    In the wind in the snow
    In the filthy weather
    You've got it all worked out
    Yea but it knocks you out
    But I'm zooming in
    Now she arrives
    In a flaming crash
    Like a falling star
    Heading straight for the dive
    Going to make some cash
    With the avatar

    [Chorus]
    You got it all worked out
    I know you know
    I don't want you to go
    Yea but it knocks you out
    I'm zooming in on you on you

    [Verse 2]
    Don't look back you're a heart attack[x4]
    You've got it all worked out
    Yea but it knocks you out
    We're not alone
    In the 2nd life
    There are millions like us
    Right here
    In the stones
    In the air too bright
    All the new insiders

    [Chorus]

    [Outro]
    Na na na na na na
    I know you know
    I don't want you to go
    Na na na na na na
    I'm zooming in and out on you

  • [Verse 1]
    She's gentle to the touch
    She's everything head first
    So happy to be causing trouble
    Sometimes
    The pressure gets too much
    And you think she's going to burst
    And shatter like a Christmas bauble
    I'll be there when the world is
    Coming down upon her
    When she's scared, I'll be there
    Fighting in her corner
    She cries when she's alone
    For all life's little knocks
    Everything is supposed to make us tougher
    Thinking is doesn't really show
    But I know how she hurts
    And I can't bare to see her suffer
    I'll be there when the world is
    Coming down upon her
    When she's scared, I'll be there
    Fighting in her corner
    I'll be there when the walls are closing to surround her
    In the air as she falls with my arms around her

    [Chorus]
    Holding on I'm looking out for
    Her thin skin
    Because she's everything
    And I don't think she knows

    [Verse 2]
    She's such a gentle touch
    She's too much a gentle touch
    She likes to catch the sun
    Plays with it like a ball
    And never mind whatever keeps it burning
    Someday, she might just be the one
    Whose going to save us all
    If this Apocalypse is coming
    I'll be there when the world is
    Coming down upon her
    When she's scared, I'll be there
    Fighting in her corner
    I'll be there when the walls are closing to surround her
    In the air as she falls with my arms around her

    [Chorus]

    [Outro]
    I don't think she knows
    I don't think she knows
    (she's too much)
    I don't think she knows
    (she's too much) a gentle touch

  • [Verse 1]
    There's a dirty great monster in this house
    We pretend that it's not there
    And there's no escape from Its grip
    But nobody seems to care

    [Chorus]
    Do you ever wonder
    About the days
    When we were straight?
    But daddy got the hunger
    So much to hide
    We learn to lie

    [Verse 2]
    So watch yourself in the hall
    Where you're not supposed to know
    'Cause we're all afraid of each other
    We're the victims in this show

    [Outro]
    Well, do you ever wonder
    About the days
    When we were straight?
    But daddy got the hunger
    So much to hide
    We learn to lie
    Silently outnumbered, uh huh
    We made mistakes
    When we were straight
    Now we're all going under, oh oh
    So with a sigh
    We say goodbye

  • [Verse 1]
    Now an unexpected peace comes to the day
    As the howling dimmed the fighting dies away
    When the hanging dust is clearing from the air
    You can just make out a lonely figure there

    [Chorus][x2]
    He's the last man standing on the track
    He does not look down
    He does not look back
    He's the last man standing on the track
    You can't hold him down
    You can't hold him back

    [Verse 2]
    He's sorry for the wrong he has done
    And he cries out for the anger for so long
    All the cuts and bruises suffered
    In whose name
    Oh but now is not the time to face his shame

    [Chorus][x3]
