I will walk down to the ocean
After waking from the nightmare
No moon, no pale reflection
Black Mirror, Black Mirror

Shot by a security camera
You can watch your own image
And also look yourself in the eye
Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror

I know when the time is coming
All the words will lose their meaning
Please show me something that isn’t mind
But mind is the only kind that I relate to
I never guessed how the mirror could ever break you
Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror

Black Mirror knows no reflection, knows not pride or vanity
Cares not about your dreams, cares not for your pyramid schemes
Their names are never spoken
The curse is never broken, the curse is never broken
Un, duex, trois, du miroir noir [one, two, three, from the mirror]
Black Mirror
Un, duex, trois, du miroir noir [one, two, three, from the mirror]
Black Mirror

Black Mirror, Black Mirror
Their names are never spoken, The curse is never broken,
Their names are never spoken, The curse is never broken,
Mirror mirror on the wall, show me where them bombs will fall
Mirror mirror on the wall, show me where them bombs will fall
Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror

Every night my dream’s the same
Same old city with a different name
They’re not coming to take me away
I don’t know why but I know I can’t stay

There’s a weight that’s pressing down
Late at night you can hear the sound
Even the noise you make when you sleep
Can’t swim across a river so deep

They know my name 'cause I told it to them
But they don’t know where and they don’t know when
It’s coming
When it’s coming

There’s this fear I keep so deep
Knew its name since before I could speak
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

They know my name 'cause I told it to them
But they don’t know where and they don’t know when
It’s coming or when
But it’s coming, keep the car running

If some night I don’t come home
Please don’t think I’ve left you alone
The same place that I must go when they die
You can’t climb across a mountain so high
The same city where I go when I sleep
Can’t swim across a river so deep

They know my name 'cause I told it to them
But they don’t know where and they don’t know when
It’s coming or when
Is it’s coming? Keep the car running
Keep the car running
Keep the car running

. . .


Vial of hope and a vial of pain
In the light they both look the same
Pull them out on the end of the rope
With every boy and girl singing

Neon Bible

Not much chance for survival
If the Neon Bible is right

Take the poison of your rage
To lick your fingers when you turn the page
What I remember is what you know is right
In the city you see only lies
Its the

Not much chance for survival
If the Neon Bible
Is right

Oh God well look at you now
Well you lost him but you don't know how
In the light of a golden calf
Oh God I had to laugh
Take the poison of your age
To lick your fingers when you turn the page
It was wrong but you said it was right
In the future I won't read at night in the

Keys taken back I throw
The people they all grow
And choose what they want written on their stone
All quiet and alone

You can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of here
I know I want to fight I want to die
Just tell me what to say

Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone

There's something in the air
The people they all sit and stare
And tell me what they point to tell me where
And tell me…

Who's gonna throw the very first stone?
Whose gonna re-set the bone?
Sitting with his head in a sling
I hear the soldier sing

Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone

Sunshine light
Someone teach me how to fly
And onto something for wish I would die, but I just don't know what
Though I can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of here
And make it all concisely clear
You know I'm gonna fade

Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone
Hear the soldiers groan

We can reach the sea
They won't follow me
The shadows they fear the sun
We'll make it if we run

Run from the memories
(run run from the memories)
Je nage, mais les sons me suivent (run run from the bottom of Haiti)

Left my name with the border guards
Anything I don’t need
Ce sera un long voyage
Sur les vagues de l'oubli

Run from the memories
(run run from the memories)
Je nage, mais les sons me suivent (run run from the bottom of Haiti)

Stop now before it's too late
I'm eating in the ghetto on a hundred dollar plate
Nothing lasts forever that's the way it’s gotta be
There's a great black wave in the middle of the sea (for me)

Stop now before it's too late
I'm eating in the ghetto on a hundred dollar plate
Nothing lasts forever that's the way it’s gotta be
There's a great black wave in the middle of the sea

For me
For you
For me
It's always for you

Stop now before it's too late
I'm eating in the ghetto on a hundred dollar plate
Nothing lasts forever that's the way its gonna be
There's a great black wave in the middle of the sea (for me)

Stop now before it's too late
Your lover was for hire, you know history's been made
Nothing lasts forever that's the way it’s gotta be
There's a great black wave in the middle of the sea

For me
For you
For me
It's always for you

This sand is not asleep
It's moving under my feet

. . .


Ocean of noise
I first heard your voice
Ring like a bell
As if I had a choice, oh well

Left in the morning
While you were fast asleep
To an ocean of violence
A world of empty streets

You've got your reasons
And me, I've got mine
But all the reasons I gave
Were just lies
To buy yourself some time

An ocean of noise
I first heard your voice
Now who here among us
Still believes in choice?
Not I

No way of knowing
What any men will do
An ocean of violence
Between me and you

You've got your reasons
And me, I've got mine
But all the reasons I gave
Were just lies
To buy myself some time

And can we work it out?
It's time to work it out
Gonna work it out
It's time to work it out for you
We're gonna work it all out
It's time to work it out
We're gonna work it out
It's time to work it out
Time to work it all out

. . .


I am serving time
all for a crime I did commit
you want the truth?
you know I'd do it all again
left for dead, heaven is only in my head

in my head, in my head
in my head, in my head

I heard a voice
calling from down inside the well
so let silver shine
she said to come claim what was mine
so down I fell, down into the water black
my prayers are said, only the moon was shining back

shining back, shining back
shining back, shining back

If I seemed lost
when I weighed the cost
and chose my crime
now, it's mine, all mine

I heard a voice
calling from just outside the well
she said
you fool, now that you know your island is near
you always fought for what you desire over what you fear

what you fear, what you fear
what you fear, what you fear

resurrected, living in a lighthouse
if you leave them ships are gonna wreck

resurrected, living in a lighthouse
The lions and the lambs ain't sleepin' yet

resurrected, living in a lighthouse
can you see the funny side? the ships are gonna wreck

resurrected, living in a lighthouse
The lions and the lambs aint sleepin' yet

the lions and the lambs ain't sleepin' yet
the lions and the lambs ain't sleepin' yet

Don't wanna work in a building downtown
No, I don't wanna work in a building downtown
I don't know what I'm gonna do
Cause the planes keep crashing always two by two
Don't wanna work in a building downtown
No, I don't wanna see it when the planes hit the ground

Don't wanna work in a building downtown
Don't wanna work in a building downtown
Parkin' the cars in the underground
The voices when they scream, well they make no sound
Wanna see the cities rust
And the troublemakers ridin' on the back of the bus

Dear God, I'm a good Christian man
I'm your boy, i know you understand
That you gotta work hard and you gotta get paid
The girl's thirteen, but she don't act her age
She can sing like a bird in cage
Oh Lord, if you could see her when she's up on that stage

You know that I'm a god-fearin' man
You know that I'm a god-fearin' man
I just gotta know if it's a part of your plan
To see my darling stand by your right hand
I know you will do what's right, Lord
For they are the lanterns and you are the light

Now I'm overcome
By the light of day
My lips are near
But my heart is far away
Tell me what to say
I'll be your mouthpiece

Into the light of a bridge that burns
As I drive through the city with the money that I earn
To the dark of a starless sky
I won't stare into nothing and I'm asking you why
Lord, let me make her a star
So the world can see who you really are

Little girl, you're old enough to understand
You'll always be a stranger in a strange strange land
Men are gonna come while you're fast asleep
So you better just stay close and hold onto me
If mama's mockingbird don't sing well,
Then daddy won't buy her no diamond ring

Dear God, will you send me a child?
Oh God, will you send me a child?
'cause I wanna put it up on the tv screen
So the world can see what your true Word means
Lord, won't you send me a sign?
'cause i just gotta know if I'm wastin' my time

Now I'm overcome
By the light of day
My lips are near
But my heart is far away
But now the war is won
How come nothing tastes good?

Oh you're such a sensitive child (sensitive child)
You know you're such a sensitive child
I know you're tired, but it's all right
I just needed you to sing for me tonight
You're gonna have your day in the sun
You know God loves the sensitive ones

Oh my little girl in a cage
Oh my little bird in a cage
I need you to get up for me up on that stage
Show all the men that you're old for your age
Now in the times of fear
But if you don't take it, it'll disappear

Oh my little mockingbird sing
Come on, my little mockingbird sing
I need you to get up on the stage for me, honey
Show the men it's not about the money
Want to hold a mirror up to the world
So that they can see themselves inside my little girl

Do you know where i was at your age?
Any idea where i was at your age?
I was workin' downtown for the minimum wage!
And I couldn't let you just throw it all away
Threw me a kid, God, throw me a knife
So tell me Lord am I the Antichrist?

I don't wanna hear the noises on TV
I don't want the salesmen coming after me
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more

I don't want it faster, I don't want it free
I don't wanna show you what they done to me
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more

I don't wanna choose black or blue
I don't wanna see what they done to you
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more

Because the tide is high
And it's rising still
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

I don't wanna give em my name and address
I don't wanna see what happens next
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more

I don't wanna live with my father's debt
You can't forgive what you can't forget
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more

I don't wanna fight in the holy war
I don't want the salesmen knocking at my door
I don't wanna live in America no more

Because the tide is high
And it's rising still
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

MTV what have you done to me?
Save my soul, set me free
Set me free, what have you done to me?
I can't breathe, I can't see
World war three, when are you coming for me?
Been kicking up sparks to set the flames free
The windows are locked now, so what'll it be?
A house on fire or the rising sea?

Why is the night so still?
Why did I take the pill?
Because I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)

I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)

We know a place where no planes go
We know a place where no ships go

(Hey!) No cars go
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

We know a place no space ships go
We know a place where no subs go

(Hey!) No cars go
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

(Hey!)
(Hey!)
(Cars go!)

(Hey!) Us kids know
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

Between the click of the light and the start of the dream [4x]

I don't want any pushing, and I don't want any shoving.
We're gonna do this in an orderly

Manner. Women and children! Women and children! Women and children,
Let's go! Old folks,

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.

I'm standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt.
It's a hollow play,
But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key.

Standing next to me.
My mind holds the key.

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head.

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key.

Standing next to me.
My mind holds the key.

My body is a...

My body is a cage.
We take what we're given,
Just because you've forgotten, that don't mean you're forgiven.

I'm living in an age
Still turning in the night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight.

I'm living in an age,
Realizing I'm dancing
With the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.

You're still next to me,
My mind holds the key.
Set my spirit free.
Set my spirit free.
Set my body free.
Set my body free.
Woo!
Set my spirit free.
Set my body free.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh
