That Day (Moment Of Clarity)"

That day, that day
What a mess what a marvel
I walked into that cloud again
And I lost myself
And I'm sad, sad, sad
Small, alone, scared
Craving purity
A fragile mind and
A gentle spirit
That day, that day
What a marvellous mess
This is all that I can do
I'm done to be me
Sad, scared, small, alone, beautiful
It's supposed to be like this
I accept everything
It's supposed to be like this

That day, that day
I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day that day
What a mess
What a marvel
We're all the same
And no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small
And I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
But it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, that day
When everything was a mess
And everything was in place
And there's too much hurt
Sad, small, scared, alone
And everyone's a cynic
And it's hard and it's sweet
But it's supposed
To be like this

That day, that day
When I sat in the sun
And I thought and I cried
'Cause I'm sad, scared, small
Alone, strong
And I'm nothing
And I'm true
Only a brave man
Can break through
And it's all okay
Yeah, it's okay

"Beauty On The Fire"

Here it comes again
Cannot out run my desire
Cover my decent
And throw the
Beauty on the fire
Drawn towards the edge
Do I assume I could fly
Every secret shared 
Why do I drink
The feelings dry
Don't go too far
Limitation scars

Tonight
Could I be lost forever
To drown
My soul in
Sensory
Pleasure
Sensory
Pleasure

Here it comes again
You raise the bar even higher
I cannot catch my breath
So throw the
Beauty on the fire
Don't push too hard
Limitaion scars

"Satellite"

Do you lie awake
In the morning
Trying to find
A reason to call me
'Cause honey
All that I've been doing
Is thinking about your smile
But none of this is necessary
With me baby
You see baby
'Cause I like to
Keep it all simple
'Cause you are my
Satellite
So I'm trying to
Keep you in sight
But with all this space
Can we keep it alive
Keep it alive
So I'm asking you baby
Are you coming down tonight

There's something
In the air tonight
That feels right
But you're keeping me
Guessing and I'm
Finding it hard to
Catch your eye
So move a little closer
It's all right
I know
What you're thinking
You've been circling me
For a while


"Do You Love?"

Child, it's broke
And I feel you
Slipping away
Child, you spoke
And the world
Fell silent again
Do you love
Do you need love
Child, undone
By fear of falling
Through cracks
Child, by one mistake
You've lost your way back
(Something's gotta
Turn you round)

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels shout
Is your heart strung out

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels fall
Have you lost it all

Child be still
In the storm
To wave us goodbye
Child we will
Return to dance
With the sky

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels shout
Is your heart strung out

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels fall
Have you lost it all

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels cry
Does your spirit die


"Wrong Impression"

Calling out, calling out
Haven't you wondered
Why I'm always alone
When you're in my dreams
Calling out, calling out
Haven't you wondered
Why you're finding it hard
Just looking at me
I want you
But I want you to understand
I leave you
I love you

Didn't want to leave you
With the wrong impression
Didn't want to leave you
With my last confession
Of love
Wasn't trying to pull you
In the wrong direction
All I wanna do is try and
Make a connection
Of love

Falling out, falling out
Haven't you wondered
If this was ever more
Than a crazy idea
Falling out, falling out
Haven't you wondered
What we could've been
If you'd only let me in

I want you
But I want you to understand
I miss you
I love you

Didn't want to leave you
With the wrong impression
Didn't want to leave you
With my last confession
Of love
Wasn't trying to pull you
In the wrong direction
All I wanna do is try and
Make a connection
Of love

I need you
I love you

"Goodbye"

Everyday's the same
I feel them merge
I try to separate
Resist the urge
But they tell me
I'll be fine
That it will all get better
Just try to write it down
Or put it in a letter
But the words won't play
And there's no
Easy way to say
Goodbye, goodbye

Keep my head on straight
And don't look down
With all I've pushed away
I'm losing ground
But they tell me
I'll be fine
That it will all get better
Just try to write it down
Or put it in a letter

But the words won't play
And there's no
Easy way to say
Goodbye, goodbye

And from the sidelines
Watch me fall down

And I don't understand
The things I do
But I'll probably be fine
As long as I keep moving
I'll try to write it down
So things just keep improving

Still the words won't play
'Cause there's no
Easy way to say
Goodbye, goodbye

"Everything Goes"

You live your life
You live like an island
Satisfied
You live for the moment
Here you come
You make it look easy
I bet you smile in your sleep
Are you smiling at me
You live your life
You live like an island
Surrounded by
Water and silence
Mmm there you go
You make it look easy
I bet you laugh at yourself
Are you laughing at me

'Cause sometimes anything goes
When you're looking at me
And sometimes everything goes
When you're looking at me

So come on, come on
Everything goes
(When you're looking at me)
Come on, come on
Everything goes
(Sometimes when
You're smiling at me)
Come on, come on
Everything goes

Come on

You live your life
You live like an island
What is it like
I wish I could hold it
Mmm there you go
Making it look easy
I bet you like how it feels
But do you feel me

So come on, come on
Anything goes
Come on, come on
Everything goes
Come on, come on
Everything goes

'Cause sometimes
Anything goes 
When you're looking at me
And sometimes
Everything goes

"Sunlight"

Today we don't know
Who we are
Ashamed, hiding behind the scars
Too many times
We let the things we feel
Get in the way of letting us
Heal the wounds
That open in the dark
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever taste clouds?
Did you ever touch space?
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever truly live?

So walk, in time
To life's refrain
Relax, don't do it
To yourself again
Decaying yourself with
All the love you won't give
Killing yourself about the way
You don't live now
'Cause you're not
Gonna live forever

Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever taste clouds?
Did you ever touch space?
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever truly live?

Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever breathe hope?
Did you ever
Dance with grace?
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever truly live?

"Talk In Tongues"

When you beat on that drum
Talk in that tongue
You're just scratching
On the surface
So tell me what it means
A whisper to a scream
Slowly fades away
Then you wake up
And tomorrow is today
And you're crying
Crying like a baby
Caught between the tides
(Did you lose your way)
You lost your way
(Did you lose your way)
You lost your way

Do you know where I've been
Walls are caving in
It moves across a wire
There no need to talk
I crawl as you walk
Pushing me away

Flowers in the bin
Close this hole I'm in
Everything was one
Nothing gets undone
You pay the bill
You lost your will
Just run away until

"Butterflies"

Swallow purple terror candy
Don't forget to breathe
Sickened by the wanting
And drowning from the need
This dichromatic vision
Of one who does not care
To sipping cocktail sedatives
Two months to hide somewhere
Butterflies, butterflies
Cut the stomach out and
Hand it over
Butterflies, butterflies
My heart will be
The bridge that
You walk over

The wolf has
Caught the chicken
And now I feel unsteady
Emotions on the blink again
So kick me
When you're ready
Here lies a violet coffin
The death of my control
Along with all my skeletons
They put them in a hole

Sickened by the notion
I give myself again
Choking on the bullet
The gun that's found a friend
So raise your glass to sorrow
And dring to all the pain
Tie a silver ribbon around
The pieces that remain

Butterflies, butterflies
Cut the stomach out and
Hand it over
Butterflies, butterflies
My heart will
Be the bridge that
You walk over

"Come September"

Her bones will ache
Her mouth will shake
And as the passion dies
Her magic heart will break
She'll fly to France
'Cause there's no chance
No hope for Cinderella
Come September
Her violet sky
Will need to cry
'Cause if it doesn't rain
Then everything will die
She needs to heal
She needs to feel
Something more than tender
Come September

Everything wrong
Gonna be all right
Come September

The souls that burn
Will twist and turn and
Find you in the dark
No matter where you run
But lost her spark
And what she's pushing for
She can't remember

Everything wrong
Gonna be all right
Come September

Her eyes surrender
Her cry a crying shame
Coming undone
Is she ever gonna
Feel the same
She will run
She's gona drink the sun
Shining just for you
Instead of everyone
And so it goes
She'll stand alone
And try no to remember
Come September

Everything wrong
Gonna be all right
Come September
She's made her mark
