1. Don't Look At me Now / Down By The Bridge

1. Someone started the fire, Somebody laid the bomb
They blew up the governments palace and they blew up the president's car
Some of them won't be found, oh, and some can not be saved
They're bound to take their secrets to their graves

Some of us wanna be martyrs, some of us wanna be saints
No one believes in god here, we're just looking for someone to blame
Don't look at me now!

2. They don't what to fight for, some of them don't really care
Some are just here for the party, some are just here to stare
Drawn to the sound of sirens, even though no one had called the cops
Nobody likes to dance when the music stops

I'll hide away without a sound...

How do you bury a soldier, how do you bury a thief
How would you bury a loved one oh, and how would you bury me,
Don't look at me now!

I'll find a way to break it down
I'll hide away without a sound
I'll fly the plane into the ground
You'll find me in the lost and found

. . .

I met her down by the bridge, said she knew me well
Said she had a place to hide in a cheap motel

I said "you know what'll be - you've seen this before
You know they'll come looking for me and they'll crash that door".

2. Space

I dreamt I saw a girl float into space, I followed close behind but lost the trace
I found myself fall into a void, oblivious to darkness all around
I dreamt I saw a girl float into space...

1. But in the meantime... the silence got so loud
The Girl looked back and vanished in the crowd
Left me on my own

2. They say that lovers give up easily
They give up all they have just to be free
But freedom ain't worth half of what it means
To be alone

3. They say it takes a lifetime to forget
Some say, don't even try, it makes you sick,
Drives you insane, makes you sick to the heart
Tears you apart

Tears me apart...

(And then I fell into a void and there was darkness all around)

4. They say it takes a lifetime to forget
Some say, don't even try, it makes you sick,
It drives you insane, makes you sick to the heart
Tears you apart... Tears me apart.

3. Too Much Inside Me

All I try is who I am
And all I'll do is what I'll be
And all I feel is where I stand
And all I hear is what I see
There's too much inside of me today

All I've broken has been mine (all you've broken has been thine)
And all I've stolen has been thyne. (all you've stolen has been mine)
And all I've asked you for's been done. (All we do is what we choose)
Not one thing left to be one (Now there's nothing left to loose)
There's too much inside of me today

I left early in the morning
Before the sun could rise above our home
Scared of what I'd be seeing there
In the dreary light of dawn

So I lie beneath the bridge at night
I rest my weary head upon the stones
I dream the dream of a perfect world
As I'm stripped down to it's bones

All I try is who I am
And all I'll do is what I'll be
And all I feel is where I stand
And all I hear is what I see
There's too much inside of me today

All we've broken has been ours
And all we've stolen has been ours
All we've taken has been lost
What we've got is what it cost
There's too much inside of me today

I left early in the morning
Before the sun could rise above our home
Scared of what I'd be seeing there
In the dreary light of dawn

So I lie beneath the bridge at night
I rest my weary head upon the stones
I dream the dream of a perfect world
As I'm stripped down to it's bones...

4. Don't Think You Know Me (Oh So Well)

1. There's fire in the hallway, there's fire in the hole
The darkness that surrounds me, it's paranoia's call
You know that I need you to guide me through this mess
You need another read-through? Come in and be my guest

I don't think you know me oh so well
If you think that you could hide that from me
I don't think you know me oh so well
If you think that you could hide that from me

2. I'm running through the courthouse, I'm here to take the stage
Stuck inbetween the risks and the chances, you must wage
I step into darkness (where did you go), I know that you're gone (as time will show/so time has told)
I find that you're drowning in the fountain that used to be my soul

I don't think you know me oh so well
If you think that you could hide that from me
I don't think you know me oh so well
If you think that you could hide that from me

I've been fighting so long, I' been riding the storm
I feel bitter and battered and tied down and worn
Tell me where are you now that they're crashing the walls
Now they're burning the houses and you can't be found

I don't think you know me oh so well
If you think that you could hide that from me
I don't think you know me oh so well
If you think that you could hide that from me

5. Damned

1. Once I knew that I was troubled, I threw my drugs into the sink
Gave up livin' on the low-down, I stopped standing by the brink
Gave my belongings to the pawnshop, left my money with 'em too
Stripped of everything that mattered much, I turn myself to you

3. Asked the priest for forgiveness, he said he could not bail me out
Turned to you for absolution, heard the words that left your mouth
Said you knew what I had called for, said you knew what I had done
Said you could not help the ones that did not strive to reach the sun

Thy shadows come....you better turn around and run

4. Damn my mother and my father, damn the priest who could not lie
Damn the ones who could not love me, damn the ones who wouldn't try
Damn the cell that I was left in, damn the ones who spat me out
Know that everything about this world is damned, without a doubt

I'm stepping out, but it's not like it's my fault

. . .

Hey, hey hey, why don't you love me
Hey, hey hey, why don't you love me
Hey, hey hey, hey hey

6. Stick With Me Now

1. The devil's a-bleedin, he needs you to sew
the stiches to mend his hearts bleeding hole... He is alone
He is in pain, he's in love with an angel,
But he can't be saved...

Stick with me now!

2. The trees count the days so incredibly slow
And the stones are the shadows of has-been, I know... Stick with me now!
No one grows old In a world that is crushed,
in a world that is sold...

Stick with me now!

I will be here where you left me,
next to the stone on the side of the road
I'll wait as long as I have to
I'll wait as long as you need to be sure
That everything burns, that everything burns

Stick with me now!

7. No One You Know

1. Why would you stick with someone who's been tricked and lied to a dozen times?
Why would you wait for someone who's been late and leaving every time you arrive?
Why would you stick with someone who's a lot like me?

2. Stood by the wall, watched all the others fall a cynic with a bloody knife
I am a no one, everybody knows one, I've been one all my life

I am a no one, but I'm no one you know
I am a no one, but I'm no one you know

Why would you stay with a hopeless prey, the rope hanging over my head (over my head)
Wounded I lie in an open field in an hour or two I'll be dead (I will be dead)
I can not stay but they'll find you here with me (you here with me... but I'll be gone)
Gone when the sun hits the ground when the night hides the day when the moon fills the sky I'll be on my way.

Stepped in the trap, my voice on the tap a bird with a song to sing
Tripped by the wire, standing there a liar, cut off his tongue and wings

I should be running but I lit the fire
I should be running but I lit the fire

Why would you stay with a hopeless prey, the rope hanging over my head (over my head)
Wounded I lie in an open field in an hour or two I'll be dead (I will be dead)
I can not stay but they'll find you here with me (you here with me... but I'll be gone)
I'll be gone when the sun hits the ground when the night hides the day when the moon fills the sky I'll be on my way.

3. Why would you stick with someone who's been tricked and lied to a dozen times?
Why would you wait for someone who's been late and leaving every time you arrive?

I am a no one, but I'm no one you know
I am a no one, but I'm no one you know...

8. The Love We Waste

All I want is you.. you're the one who gets me through
Gets me through the night... lying wasted by my side
There you lie... so do I

All I fear is thruth ...truth being told by those who do
Ask me if you'll stay... I might answer I'm OK
But I'm afraid... you'll go away

I know that they have given up, they've closed the case
They say your heart is growing cold, and my love has gone to waste
I can tell they never knew what it ment to me

All I need is you... you're the one who gets me through
Gets me through the night...
lying naked by my side...
In the cold light...

9. Know That I Believe

1. Build your house on sand, build it on the shore
Keep the wind and keep the waves outside your door
Hoping it'll stand

2. Build a house of hope to keep you safe and sound
Do not fear the flood that comes to tear it down
Nothing ever lasts

Know that I believe in, know that I believe in, know that I believe in you...

When the storm unfolds, know that I will stand by you

3. Build a roof of love, build it over me
When the storm unfolds, know that there can be
No way it'll fall

4. Keep me in your heart, keep me on your mind
When the morning comes, know that we will find
Somewhere we can stay

Know that I believe in, know that I believe in, know that I believe in you...

When the moning breaks, the dawn awakes
Know I will lay there with you

Know that I believe in, know that I believe in, know that I believe in you...

When the storm unfolds, know that I will stand by you.

10. Calm

1. Follow me, find me, await me, on thin ice I walk
It's easily done in the dark
The less that you see is the more that you feel

2. Long are the days that are gone, short the ones that will come
Darling, don't wait until dawn
The night comes, then morning arrives
And you're gone...and you're gone

Lead me, don't fear me my love
Lead me, don't fear me my love

3. Stay with me, lay with me, dance with the stars as they fall
Love don't come easy at all
Wait for me, leave with the darkness at night

4. Lead me, don't fear me my love, but beware of the fall
Love don't catch nothing at all
Watch where you step, don't look down
Darling be calm...be calm

Lead me, don't fear me my love
Lead me, don't fear me my love

Lead me, don't fear me my love, but beware of the fall
Love don't catch nothing at all
Watch where you step, don't look down
Darling be calm... be calm

11. The Nay Sayer

1. Brainless and lovesick I'll go down, my friend,
In this brilliant procedure the end has no end
The doors are still open, the water's still wild,
The wind don't stop blowing, it cries like a child

Blinded by the waves of the sea, silently,
Bound by the fear of home

2. The more you're endandgered, the more you can hear
It is hate that I favor and love that I fear
The priest falls in love with a biblical sin,
The less you can lose ain't the more that you win
I've been shot many times by a friend whom I love,
The ground is forgiveness, yet we all float above

The smaller you are the bigger you feel,
I get lost in the end of the times

Painless I am and it's painless I'll be,
It's a constant tone ringing inside of me
Tear up your house and then sink like a brick,
'cause this world is no place for the weak and the sick
You say that I'm crazy, you call me a fool,
Yet you live upon laws that don't follow the rules
It's a game that we play in a fight that we'll lose,
You've learned nothing. my friend, if it's pain that you choose

Brainless and lovesick I'll go down, my friend,
In this brilliant procedure the end has no end

Brainless and lovesick I'm stayin' in bed,
I am stayin' in bed, yeah, I'm stayin' in bed

Brainless and lovesick I'm stayin' in bed,
If I fall out I'm dead, if I step out I'll break like a leaf

My humour is of such a kind
Not born to raise but born to die
Fulfill their fears, unveil their lies
and cry their tears... and cry

↑ top ↑

12. Slow Down/Bottom Line

1. Why me, why you? Aren't we just getting through?
It's just the end, why are you so upset?

2. Why hate, why love? Can't we just get it off?
It's just the end, is this the bottom line?

I don't belong here no more!

Slow dow, slow down, I stand right beside you
Slow dow, slow down, I'll be right behind you
We were meant to be, It's just you and me
But I've come to see that what we have
M might go away if you don't...

3. Why cry, why laugh? Ain't true love all we ever have
Beneath the truth there lies a bitter lie

I don't belong here no more!

Slow dow, slow down, I stand right beside you
Look around, look around, no one's out to find you
It's just you and me, I'll be there for thee
No one has to be alone... alone...

4. Why me, why you? Weren't we just getting through?
It's just the end, Why are we so upset?

13. Undertaker

Hey, undertaker, put me down there's been too much that I've seen
Hey, undertaker, put me down 'cause there's been too much that I've seen
Believe me now, I've seen enough, just lay me down and bury me!

I drank my mommas whiskey, and I stole my fathers clothes
I drank my mommas whiskey, and I stole my fathers clothes
I sold my sis some heroine drove her right into overdose...

I been payin' for angels ever since I turned 15
I been payin' for angels ever since I turned 15
So throw some money on my grave, cause' heaven won't come cheap for me!

I met a man in bethlehem he had something to sell
He said: "Wanna get your fortune told?" and I said: "I might as well!"
He read my hand, he laid the cards, threw me a scary glance
He said listen boy, and listen well, for here's your only chance

He said: "Pray, pray for the devil!
For he's the only one who'll forgive you now!"

Got married to sweet Bethany, she joined me on the road
Got married to sweet Bethany, she joined me on the road
I promised her sweet heavens and abandoned her in Idaho!

I never liked to hang around, you know the reason why
I never liked to hang around, you know the reason why
I wore the rope around my neck as though it was my tie...

I met a man in bethlehem he had something to sell
he said: "Wanna get your fortune told?" and I said: "I might as well!"
He checked my hand, he laid the cards, threw me a scary glance
He said listen boy, and listen well, 'cause here's your only chance

He said: "Pray, pray for the devil!
For he's the only one who'll forgive you now!"

14. SFU

1. Buy me a coffin, dress me to go
Pick up your shovel, dig out a hole
Don't miss me long, dear, life does not wait

Life breaks us all, dear...

2. Lower me slowly, put me to rest
Ashes to ashes, dust back to dust
Try to forgive, dear, death does not choose

Life breaks us all, dear
Life breaks us all, dear
Life takes it's toll, dear
