Ooo!
Ooo!

I'm waiting for my moment to come
I'm waiting for the movie to begin
I'm waiting for a revelation
I'm waiting for someone to count me in

Cos now I only see my dreams, in everything I touch
Feel their cold hands on, everything that I love
Cold like some, magnificant skyline
Out of my reach, but always in my eyeline now

We're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We're spiralling


I fashioned you from jewels and stone
I made you in the image of myself
I gave you everything you wanted
So you would never know anything else

But everytime I reach for you, you slip through my fingers
Into cold sunlight, laughing at the things that
I had planned, the map of my world gets
Smaller as I sit here, pulling at the loose threads now

We're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We're spiralling
(When we fall in love
We're just falling
In love with ourselves
We're spiralling)


Did you wanna be a winner?
Did you wanna be an icon?
Did you wanna be famous?
Did you wanna be the president?
Did you wanna start a war?
Did you wanna have a family?
Did you wanna be in love?
Did you wanna be in love?

(I never saw the light
I never saw the light
I waited up all night
But I never saw the light)


When we fall in love
We're just falling
In love with ourselves
We're spiralling
We're tumbling down
We're spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We're spiralling

Ooo!
Ooo!

I dreamed I was drowning
in the river Thames
I dreamed I had nothing at all
nothing but my own skin
I dreamed I was drifting
on a howling wind
I dreamed I had nothing at all
nothing but my own skin

Slipped away from your open hand
into the river
saw your face looking back at me
I saw my past
and I saw my future

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
cause you don't like the way they seem to be going
you cut them up and spread them out on the floor
you're full of hope as you begin rearranging
put it all back together
but anyway you look at things and try
the lovers are losing

I dreamed I was watching
a young lover's dance
I reached out to touch your hand
but I was watching from a distance

we cling to love like a skidding car
clinched to the corner
I try to hold on to what we are
the more I squeeze the quicker we all are

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
cause you don't like the way they seem to be going
you cut them up and spread them out on the floor
you're full of hope as you begin rearranging
put it all back together
but anyway you look at things and try
the lovers are losing

I dreamed I had nothing at all (nothing at all)
I dreamed I had nothing at all

You take the pieces of the dreams that you had
cause you don't like the way they seem to be going
you cut them up and spread them out on the floor
you're full of hope as you begin rearranging
put it all back together
but in the final reckoning
we're trying
the lovers are losing

. . .


Is this what you meant?
Is this what you dreamed of?
When you were making your plans,
Shaking the dirt off?
Do you feel like you and I belong?
(oh ah oh)
Just keep your eyes on the road and nothing can go

wrong

You could do so much better than this
You could do so much better than this

I've been checking my sums
Oh where did the time go?
Holding my photograph up to the window
Through the paper, a refracted sun
(oh ah oh)
I can see all the things I wish that I'd done

You can hang your hopes on the bedsits
You can put your faith in the foreign
You can tell yourself you can do your best
You could do so much better than this

Get a grip on yourself
Get a grip on yourself
Could have been something, but you're too late
And you wouldn't want it anyway

Just a photograph from the wrong time
'Cause there is no soap star holding your hand
You can see yourself in a freeze-frame
Must be someone else using your name

And everyone will be the same
And everyone will never go
And everywhere, you'll see your name
In every shop window

It's better than this
You could do so much better than this
You could do so much better than this
You could do so much better than this

. . .


In a pearl grey room
One afternoon, one afternoon
What are you gonna do
Having your way
But there’s nothing new

You took a beautiful thing
Pull off a wing, pull off a wing
A safety pin
It never shone quite as bright again

But you haven’t told me anything
That I didn’t already know
No you haven’t said a single thing
That I didn’t already know

It’s a thing I love
Stuck in the mud, stuck in the mud
Stuck in a rut
Not a piece in your puzzle
Or a paper cut

So same time next week
A kiss on the cheek, kiss on the cheek
And say after me
Everything’s tied up nice and neat

But you haven’t told me anything
That I didn’t already know
No you haven’t sold me anything
That I didn’t already own

I feel for you
I really do
Nothing adds up
like you want it to
No words can mend
This fix I’m in
Give me your words
I won't even blink
Right between the eyes
I won’t feel a thing

Because you haven’t told me anything
That I didn’t already know
No you haven’t said a single thing
That I didn’t already know

No you haven’t told me anything
No you haven’t told me anything
No you haven’t told me anything
No you haven’t told me anything

. . .


I shake through the wreckage for signs of life
Scrolling through the paragraphs
Clicking through the photographs

I wish I could make sense of what we do
Burning down the capitals
The wisest of the animals

Who are you? What are you living for?
Tooth for tooth, maybe we'll go one more

This life is lived in perfect symmetry
What I do, that will be done to me

Read page after page of analysis
Looking for the final score
We're no closer than we were before

Who are you? What are you fighting for?
Holy truth? Brother I choose this mortal life

Lived in perfect symmetry
What I do, that will be done to me
As the needle slips into the run-out groove
Love - maybe you'll feel it too

And maybe you'll find life is unkind
And over so soon
There is no golden gate
There's no heaven waiting for you

Oh boy you ought to leave this town
Get out while you can the meter's running down
The voices in the streets you love
Everything is better when you hear that sound

Spineless dreamers hide in churches
Pieces of pieces of rush hour buses
I dream in emails, worn-out phrases
Mile after mile of just empty pages

Wrap yourself around me
Wrap yourself around me
As the needle slips into the run-out groove
Maybe you'll feel it too
Maybe you'll feel it too

Spineless dreamers hide in churches
Pieces of pieces of rush hour buses
I dream in emails, worn-out phrases
Mile after mile of just empty pages

. . .


Like beautiful dawns, all made up and bright
Radiant people, in splintering light
All moving at the speed of life
Reflecting in each others' eyes
But you're moving so fast
Through this beautiful scene
You don't see me
You don't see me

Oh truly we are, a fortunate few
Who turn on your axis, revolve around you
All spinning outwards from your sun
Passing your reflection on
In your hurry to grasp
Everything you see
You don't see me
You don't see me
You don't see me
No, you don't see me

Such a beautiful view
I guess you've seen it all
But you
You see nothing at all
Such a beautiful view
Shining so bright

Shining so bright
So bright

All moving at the speed of life
Reflecting in each others' eyes
But you're moving with such irresistible speed
You don't see me
You don't see me
You don't see me
No, you don't see me
No, you don't see me

. . .


Was it all in real time or was it just in my mind?
Was I just a ghost passing through you
Clinging to the wreckage, till I got the message?
Hanging at the edge of the room

Give me something that's real
Give me half of your bitterest pill
Something from under the surface you actually feel

We say these words again and again
But they still sound the same
It was in your eyes, in your eyes
They were just easy lies

The lightest words are heavy and promises are easy
And no one's ever happy or sad for very long
Well just because I said it, it doesn't mean I meant it
I guess that was the way all along

I'm just shaping the sound
I'm just turning the syllables round
Dipping my toe in the water and watching you drown

We say these words again and again
But they still sound the same
It was in my eyes, in my eyes
They were just easy lies

And it's been a long time waiting
And it's been a lifetime in the making
Ohhhhhhhhh
We said, "When you are alone and afraid
I will come to your aid"
Well was it just a dream, just a dream?
'Cause it was real to me

We say these words again and again
But they still sound the same
We say these words again and again
And again and again

. . .


At the start of the new day
The fires begin
It wasn't in pictures but I'm not listening
I'm not taking it in

I'm going to go to the country where nothing goes on
Gonna bury my head where I can't hear the sound of bombs
Playing along

Me, I'm just playing along
You and I, so many good people
Just playing along

I'm gonna go to the bar where the jukebox is on
Gonna shut out the noise with a rock and roll song
Playing along

I'm gonna turn up the volume
I'm gonna turn up the volume
I'm gonna turn up the vlume till I can't even think

Tell us a tale of the proud and the free
Sing us a swing time American melody
From follow the fleet

Me I'm just playing along
You and I, a billion people
Just playing along

I'm gonna turn up the volume
I'm gonna turn up the volume
I'm gonna turn up the volume until I can't even think
I'm gonna turn up the volume
I'm gonna turn up the volume
I'm gonna turn up the volume till I can't even think...

. . .


We are just the monkeys
Who fell out of the trees
We are blisters on the earth
We are not the flowers
We're the strangling weeds in the meadow

And love is just our way
Of looking out for ourselves
When we don't want to live alone
So step into the vaccuum
Tear off your clothes
And be born again

Pretend you're alone now and everything's gone
Just animal reflex, there's no one looking on
Forget about fashion, forget about the law
Pretend that you're alone now

I wonder what I'd do if
I could wake up every morning with a clean slate
I'd burn through the cities
And tear through thte towns because there's no deals to make

So break out of the cages,
The delecate structures we cling to all our lives
'Cause we are just the monkeys
Who fell out of the trees when we were trying to fly

Pretend you're alone now and everything's gone
Just primal desire, no right and no wrong
Forget about the future, forget about the law
Pretend that you're alone now

She's not waiting for tomorrow
She has no love in her eyes
Oh no, wanna come down right now
Over, I wanna get out right now
Oooh Ooh

Pretend that you're alone now
And everything's gone
Just animal reflex, there's no one looking on
Forget about relgiion, forget about shame
Pretend that you're alone now
No numbers in your phone now, there's nothing going on
Just primal desire, no right and no wrong
Forget about fashion, forget about fame
Pretend that you're alone now
Pretend that you're alone now
Pretend that you're alone now

. . .


I wish that I could be
In the cellars of the sea
And disappear and I'm
Never to be seen again

Live this life
It's own relenting appetite
For feeding off the weak
Who never had the turn to speak

The sky will be my shroud
A monument of cloud
If we could turn back
You can paper over the cracks
But it will return now
And your heart will burn black

Give me your hand
Cut the skin
Let me in
The molecules of us
Bleeding in to one again

The sky will be my shroud
A sin or doubt of cloud
If we coud turn back
You can paper over the crack
But it will return now
And your heart will burn black

Forgotten my way home
Forgetton everything that i know
Every day a full start
And it burns my heart

I know
Everything you said was right and I suppose
Everything is here for entertaining goals
You gave it all away, kept nothing for yourself
Just a picture on a shelf

Burning off now
I'm racing down a road I don't recognize
I realize I've forgotten my way home
Forgotten everything that I know
Every day a full start and it burns my heart

Turn back

. . .


Singing a song with your feet on the dashboard
The cigarette streaming into the night
These are the things that I want to remember
I want to remember you by

It won't come again
Cos love is the end
Oh no, my friend
Love is the end

I took off my clothes and I ran to the ocean
Looking for somewhere to start a-new
And when I was drowning in that holy water
All I could think of was you

Woah, my friend
Love is the end
So lets not pretend
Cos love is the end

Take it back, don't let it die
Or rage against the fallen night
Cos I still do, depend on you
So don't say those words, you wrung me through

Woah, oh oh
Love is the end
So lets not pretend
Cos love is the end

So I tread the only road
The only road I know
Nowhere to go, but home
Nowhere to go
Maybe our time is up
But still you can't look back
But all the principles of love
Don't say those words
Don't say those words

. . .


It's time to make a start
To get to know your heart
Time to show your face
Time to take your place

In every speck of dust
In every universe
When you feel most alone
You will not be alone

Just shine a light on me, shine a light
I'll shine a light on you, shine a light
And you will see my shadow on every wall
And you will see my footprint on every floor

It only takes a spark
To tear the world apart
These tiny little things
That make it all begin

Just shine a light on me, shine a light
I'll shine a light on you, shine a light
And you will see my shadow on every wall
And you'll see my reflection in your free fall

Ooh, oh ooh, ooh, oh ooh!

Just shine a light on me, shine a light
I'll shine a light on you, shine a light
'Cause when your back's against the wall
That's when you show no fear at all
And when you're running out of time
That's when your hit tune start to rhyme

We won't be leaving by the same road that we came by
We won't be leaving by the same road that we came by
We won't be leaving by the same road that we came by
We won't be leaving by the same road that we came by

Oh ooh, oh ooh, oh ooh, oh ooh!

. . .


Now, during a scene
Seen it all before
We drink, we drink a little much
Drink a little more
To shake off the nerves and
To take off the edge and
Now is there any way back home?

Seen it all before and
I know the signs
We drink, drink a little much
To stimulate the mind
Now it's two hours to go
Insult everyone that we know
Now it's such a long way home

Maybe it's time to go?
Maybe it's time we went?
You're making a spectacle
Maybe it's time we left?

I don't wanna spoil your night
I don't wanna hurt your pride
But maybe it's time to go
Maybe it's time?

Now eating from your hand
Laugh at every line
Soon losing track of you
Losing track of time
Now it's dead on the dancefloor
And nobody's laughing anymore
Have I become a tiresome bore?

Maybe it's time to go?
Maybe it's time we went?
You're making a spectacle
Maybe it's time we left?

I don't wanna spoil your night
I don't wanna hurt your pride
But maybe it's time to go?
Maybe it's time?

To go where there's nowhere to hide
From what's broken inside
A faultline rips right open
Under the wide wide ocean's tide
Under the wide wide ocean

Maybe it's time to go?
Maybe it's time we went?
You're making a spectacle
Maybe it's time we left?

I don't wanna spoil your night
I don't wanna hurt your pride
Maybe it's time to fly
Maybe it's time?

Maybe it's time to go?
Maybe it's time?
