An Easy Life (bonus track)
. . .


We're bound to wait all night
She's bound to run amok
Invested enough in it anyhow
To each his own...
The garden needs sorting out
She curls her lips on the bow
I don't know if I'm dead or not
To anyone

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes,
This army has so many heads
To analyze...
Come on and get your overdose
Collected at the borderline
They want to get up in your head...

[Chorus]
Cause they know and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour in your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

The dawn to end all nights
That's all we hoped it was
A break from the warfare in your house
To each his own...
The soldier is bailing out
And curled his lips on a barrel
And I don't know if the dead can talk
To anyone...

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
This army has so many hands
Are you one of us?
Come on and get your overdose
Collected at the borderline
They want to get up in your head

[Chorus]
Cause they know, and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour in your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide...
(repeat)

. . .


What amounts to a dream anymore
A crude device, a veil on our eyes
A simple plan, we'd be different from the rest
And never resign to a typical life

Common fears start to multiply
We realize we're paralyzed
Where'd it go, all that precious time
Did we even try to stem the tide

Why should we waste it on
Buying into the same old lies
The longer we wait around
The faster the years go by

It's not too late
To feel a little more alive
Make our escape
Before we start to vaporize

Doubtless, we've been through this
So if you want to follow me you should know
I was lost then and I'm lost now
And I doubt I'll ever know which way to go

. . .


To turn away from the night
Allowing the light a low
He's surely fooling yourself
Leaving life on the shelf

You'll never know
How low an angry heart can go
How long a sitting hand's return meant

. . .


She sold her love to a modern man
Good solid currency's the hardest to love
All other modern hells you cover your eye
Don't let the lady finger blow your hat

Feel like a daughter
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up the ghost inside

Just like a whiskey bottle drained on the floor
She got no future just a love to endure
This good Samaritan shaking her hand
Too late to leave and now this song's in the car

Feel like a daughter
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up the ghost inside

They call it chivalry
Never pull a punch for free
You ever wonder why they had to move on
This phony article
That put you on the floor
A double standard
You invoke when you want

Feel like a daughter
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up the ghost inside

Was it all for show
To turn into all of them
Turn another page
Trust me darling
I'm carving them up through the dust in your town
Crawling over rubble
Just to sound me out
Tend to wonder why

. . .


Tomorrow I sail the world
Lovin, more than I know with blood on my hands
Wouldn't know, you're a devious sister
Guts on your blouse
Close your old ways

And diamonds a dozen
Sailing to nowhere
They burn and float on
Still we move on through the night

Boiling systems
Drain the lot
They go down by their hearts
One by one
Long to find
A way up
Following the ghost down

Running in circles
A mouse on the table
I try to feel, I just don't
Hurtin' and dead inside
Go on and cut 'em in half
Said I

. . .


Walk out before you make it worse on yourself
Now's not the time for that elegant laugh
Digress from the people
Once by your side
Once by your side
But now that it's over
You have to pick up
And just start again, start again

You're falling to earth
And you're calling it out
You're burning yourself
And your challenge to winter
Gotta clip the lines and move for yourself
Just move for yourself, love
Now that it's over
You have to pick up
And just watch your back, watch your back

And close your eyes to us
Fight fire
Trap doors to endless wisdom
Young lad
Have we grown too tired
Longing to find

Learned that in time
If you want it to end
Your life at this temperature
Life under water
You gotta let these fools all trample themselves
They trample themselves
Just dying to enter
You're preaching to the choir
So turn around, turn around

And close your eyes to us
Fight fire
Trap doors to endless wisdom
Young lad
Have we grown too tired
Longing to find

And close your eyes to us
Fight fire
Trap doors to endless wisdom
Young lad
Have we grown too tired
Longing to find

. . .


This is a day without
A trace of reason
No matter where you turn

And the walls will fall
Affirming nothing
So what's it all about?

Call on a bright star
Or play your hand as an intellect
Wounds always speak too loud

Get along for awhile
See the sin in the sea
How the innocent are bound to the damned
What is, just is, I know
So we're trapped by answers
Love haunts to the end

Are we all to ride
The edge of nothing?
Shake hands if I deny

And if they don't know
Their heart is stopping
Cause everyone is right

Get along for awhile
See the sin in the sea
How the innocent are bound to the damned
What is, just is, I know
So we're trapped by answers
Love haunts to the end

From the moment that we're born
Till we're old and tired out
Do we ever know?

From the moment that were born
Till we're old and tired out
Do we ever know?

. . .


So you showed me around your town
To hell again and back
I love the certain way
You made all the friends you depend on

I know it might seem odd
Because you're not the only one
I remember myself as a lonely child
So I was and you got me wrong
You got me wrong

Wrong just seems so right
Till the spark of morning light
And all those searching eyes
Do they scald your tender heart

Remember what they said
There's no shortcut to a dream
It's all blood and sweat
And life is what you manage in between

But what you don't know
Is you're too young and eager to love
Seething, I see
You're about to get into
The ditch that you opened up

Wrong just seems so right
Till the spark of morning light
And all those searching eyes
Do they scald your tender heart

Sisters alight
And leave you behind
You want it so and I
I come by light of an autumn moon

Sister you know enough
But for now just let it go
Don't run, don't rush
Just flow

Through the give and take you've had to learn
How to cross the coals and not get burned
But you're really just a little girl
Playing in the park until the sun goes down

Sometime you want to rise
One did it's our desire
No doubt you think you braided your own hair
So you're all grown up

Should you want to cross the line
Which way do you want to fly
Pretend that love could help you find your way
But you got me wrong
Yeah you got me wrong

. . .


Is it hard to wait
Drawn by your mongrel heart again
If you don't answer, would you want to be found out
You duck through the wind in your old blight on the town

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn its waiting game
To bring that spectre down

And would it be wrong
To clamp down on your racing heart, love
And if they'd known, what sifted down to be found out
It's not what you deserve

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn its waiting game
To bring that spectre down

Faster than you were going to allow
Turn out the lights or say get out
If you don't answer, would you want to be found now
Five days on, trapped by a wave

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn this waiting game
To bring that spectre down

Black corn was soaking
You'll be cut down in the seedy stairway
If you don't answer, would you want to be found now
Sapped from the bed to the window

Looking back on that time
Starting in the minds
What it is to be twenty nine
Fame sets your life down

Would it be wrong
Would it be wrong
To disappoint you now
Disappoint you now

. . .


Use your intuition
It's all you've got
Keys are rare
There's a dozen locks
Standing in your way
So goes the gold age
To your entire life

Digging for a way
You cast a spell
Carve a path from all the things they sell
But they don't let go
Just thought you should know
Keep them away

I know what I know
But nothing will fill the hole
So let your mind go
Straight down the run way
Does one want to
Get more used to
The mall and misery
The dead mouths it costs to be alive

Oh she lies half burning
From the biting cold
You're falling a lamb
What you've never been told
There's a new world
Somewhere a good girl
Lives and breathes

Part of her opened the callow mind
Ideas stolen in the morning tide
There's a dark time
This is a dark life
Feel your heart

I know what I know
But nothing will fill the hole
So let your mind go
Straight down the run way
Does one want to
Get more used to
The mall and misery
The dead mouths it costs to be alive

. . .


so tell me where it hurts
do those stunts prove anything?
i doubt that i believe that anyone is doing it

darling read this from a book
but you're the one you're hurting
no no

safe from distraction
polishing all these severed hands
oblivion is nice
til it bites you in the ass

up in your role
without a single clue
the riddle of name
in every poison arrow end

twilight hours on a hook
with no money burning
no no

i gotta desert you
quietly slide out your back door
the vertigo is nice
but it makes it hard to dance

guess you want to win the prize
company odds exchange this night
losing it all again ain't wise

whoa, wait
she said that i record?
i got shift than i deserve
look back from anything, but
the question is simple
why not be smiling?
no no

what did it hurt?
leaving it all to happenstance
one of these nights
when i can't get settled down

what did it hurt?
leaving it all to happenstance
one of these nights
when you just can't settle down
when you just can't settle down
