Sometimes it feels like a heart attack when I think you might be tring to crawl back on all fours looking for affection, but I know it's just a deception. Serves you right. It's your plight. You dissolve under the light. You don't exist. You only live inside my nightmares. In the dark you circle round my shack. I've got enough ammunition to hold you back. Freedom is my protection. Now it's down to natural selection. Your howling tears through the night. It's just a trick, out of spite. Say your prayers. I'll see you in your nightmares. While you were gone I learned to fight. Discovered my God given rights. Why are you still here when I've made it clear you're desecrating my memories. You live in the past and all things must pass and I'm trying to set you free. Move to the light if you were ever serious. I wish you no harm but you're trapped in your ignorance. Go from this place where your will has no relevance. A dream within a dream where you act with no consequence.

The rushing air thrills my skin. I feel your heat and drink it in. We're sculpture, we're Rodin's Kiss and I could die like this. All of my worries, all of my doubts, they're nothing but road kill. The wheels just spit them out. Now we're a vessel for something good I can be heard and understood. I could make this last for days, leave our lives, just ride away. Nothing damaged can touch us here. Our torments disappear. All of my worries, all of my fears, vapour trails in our slip stream, shimmering in the heat. Now we're a vessel for something good. I can be heard and understood. We're comets on the streets of Hollywood. We can't stay here for very long. We need to keep moving on. Now that I know you are the one, we'll ride straight into the sun. The sun glints on the visor. We don't check in the mirror. Chrome shaped like a tear drop. We're rolling and we don't stop.

Your god has abandoned this project. Vampires, his children, burning in the desert. Heightened appetites, can't be sated. Angels, all fallen, nothing is sacred. Burn down paradise, lost souls drifting to survive. He's my oasis, my only comfort, Why smile, why try, we're outnumbered. Devour, be devoured, merciless nature. Dark skies, black blizzard, Run to the shelter. Western Babylon, bones where gardens were hung. At first the taste made us sick, the blood of Christ, wine from the wrist. Wine for the lost and derelict. Burn down paradise, lost souls drifting to survive. Western Babylon, bones where gardens were hung. Your god, merciless nature, dark skies, black blizzard.

Scene cut out from a movie for causing offence. No wonder it didn't move me, it makes no sense. Cos you can't have passion without the pain. Have you ever felt the violence of love in vain? When I miss him I resist him. Weighs my heart against a feather. As I kiss him my Anubis opens up our world together. What about limitations, how can I judge When I've got so used to climbing? No rock is too much. I wish the holds were easy. I look up and see you. My fingers are freezing, they're turning blue. Judgement by the weight of truth Guide me back to you. Give me night vision so I can observe what the dark conceals. I want my senses alive when it turns out the myth is real. When I miss him I resist him Weighs my heart against a feather. As I kiss him my Anubis opens up our world together. I keep travelling til I find him. He's my torment and my measure. Darkest guardian we are spinning in the underworld forever.

Hand of God or by the Devil's hoof. Witness the miracles gathered beneath one roof. Come when I call to the greatest show of all. You'll roll up. All you skeptics try your luck. Wagons ride the trail a serpent winds. Slight of hand. Every move and gesture planned. You're my kind, spiritual beggar child. The world's magnetic pull brings back around the carnival. I see a flame in your eyes. The curious will be satisfied. Strangers rules.He's asking to be fooled. Slight of hand.Every move and gesture planned. He's my kind, spiritual beggar child. The world's magnetic pull brings back around the carnival. Use the secrets you've learned for the final leap up til the whole world is yours to see. Painted faces leer. Intrigue keeps you here. It's in the cards you'd bring a storm. You're always questioning why. I won't let your innocence die. The world's magnetic pull brings back around the carnival. The innocent and the fool embracing the ritual. I see the spark in your eyes. I know you long to be surprised. Cradle the flame and keep it alive. You must unlearn to become wise. Though the journey's long and the ritual is a treacherous road, you can't leave the carnival.

Love's last gift, remembrance, will anyone give to you? No one likes a snitch, and a clever bastard too. You suffocate we all suffer. You were called to do a job, misunderstood the call. Don't tell me what you think, in fact don't think at all. You suffocate we all suffer. The arab spring is never ever gonna turn to summer rain while there's gasoline to burn. Kelly you deserve so much more than apathy. Now that's a cause worth dying for. 'Hey whipping boy' they're saying, 'you couldn't take the stress, you could face the great dictator but you couldn't face the press'. You suffocate we all suffer. Something's got to give and break without a shout. So they cut you in the woods and let the truth bleed out. You suffocate we all suffer. The arab spring is never ever gonna turn to summer rain while there's gasoline to burn. Kelly you deserve so much more than apathy. Now that's a cause worth dying for. You suffocate you suffocate me. Now the only red they wear is the blood on their sleeves. Just another burial of truth, covered over with leaves. Covered over with rotting leaves.

On an Alaskan base they built a machine that can trigger a tidal wave to wipe the planet clean. We're in the movies, it's our scene. And the sky is falling. Tesla's death ray's calling. I couldn't do this without you. As long as I'm with you buildings can crumble around me. My world is inside you. And I'm so glad that you found me. There's nothing left to do. Buildings can crumble around me. When the grays descend where will you be? I've got weapons up in the hills so baby stick with me. We're in the movies. It's our scene. And the sky is falling. Doctor Death Ray's calling. This could be our final transmission. And the sky is falling. Doctor Death Ray's calling. Patriot or traitor Meet the equaliser. When the ships are landing. We'll be the last ones standing. Final transition. Final transmission.

Through a crack streams a light. The others sleep, for them it's night. It's the cruel midnight sun and my winter's begun. Way beneath, stretching deep, the Atlantic abyss. Metal bird flaps it's wing and a shadow axe swings. Solar flares, polar night, as we move out of sight. Memories in eclipse from the world opposite. Each second feels like days. What devil made you wax when I must wane. Six thousand miles of space, the radar's blank and you're too far out of range. Metal bird flaps it's wing and a shadow axe swings. Solar flares, polar night, as we move out of sight. Memories in eclipse from the world opposite. You're so cruel midnight sun. Now my winter's begun.

Each new act that's pure eclipsed by darker work. The cracks that beg for rain. Dust turns into dirt and it stains my soul. It's a song that keeps on playing on the radio. Saying 'Baby no, please don't go'. It's an echo of a lie I gave up years ago. TV dinner tray, red paint on white tile. These triggers that I hate. My baptism of fire in a house that burnt down. And now you have the nerve to wonder how I am. Well my love is fierce and I let it show. I cry when I'm alone and no one needs to know. I cry for something that I never had. Does that make me bad? It's not rational to feel so sad. I never wanted anyone like this but you don't exist Your my invention but the pain persists. Singing 'Baby no, please don't go'. It's an echo of a lie I gave up years ago. My love is fierce and I let it show. I cry when I'm alone and no one needs to know.

I had a love who cared for me more than the world, and all believed him. He had two faces only I could see. The lily floats on dead black water. Run away, run away. Far from here. He held a knife up to my throat and drew my blood with each embrace. Violent delights have violent ends when your whole life on lust depends. Run away, run away. Far from here. Don't turn back in fear. Only you can save yourself.

I saw your rope and held out a hope that you'd try and lasso me. I bore the thought if you pulled me taught I'd never want setting free. The heat haze of history can't distort or dissolve the falcons above. They're memories of what I once was. The memories of what I once was. You showed me off like a trophy shot with a forty four caliber kiss. And now every drink you buy holds the stink of the wasted youth that I miss. The sandstorms of time can't bury or blind the falcons above. They're memories of what I once was. The memories of what I once was. Am I better or am I worse? Is freedom blessed or is it a curse?. Each turn breeds guilt. Decisions made and blood is spilt. It's kill or be killed. The heat haze of history can't distort or dissolve the falcons above. They're memories of what I once was. The memories of what I once was.

Emerald is my stone. Never questioned why. City lights, green and gold, raining from the sky. You let me believe. And I'm so naive I think I'll make it real. Blood stains on the star walk. I can hear these streets talk. Don't like what they're saying. I think I hear God praying. But I've still got emeralds.

My seraph lifts me from bush fires and landslides. I'm understood. My ivory tower shakes but stands through earthquakes like I never could. When I would like to lay low- the eagles claws have let me go, and I am falling way below. Just like Blue Scout promised to lead us out to infinity. When I would like to lay low- the eagles claws have let me go, and I am falling way below. I could swear that you were there, but how could you be? As I sank in the sand I was grabbed by a hand, that pulled me free. Don't say you'll die if she goes away and burden her with guilt each day. Don't say that every single flower will die, the stars will cry, and the earth will be plunged into endless night. I could swear that you were there, but how could you be? As I sank in the sand I was grabbed by a hand, it was you pulled me free. As we rose through the sky all the roof tops and spires became toys in my eyes and I could swear my heart's still there.

My arms are the waves. Let them carry you. Over wreck and reef, tentacles and teeth. When sedatives are hard to find I'll give you one of mine. I'll change your story line. I'll take you back again on the road to San Sebastian. The 'Furs are on the radio. I guess that shows how long ago I wished you were mine. Then you'd never cry 'We're better off dead'. The best and the worst times are only in your head. Your voice is music I'll persue down the throat of the well. I'll float where others fell. In the dark you can't view what's right in front of you. The moonlight hits your skin and the constellations spin. Coming down, you're just coming down Gravity kills, endorphines drown. Do you wish that you'd never left the ground? Then you'd never have said 'We're better off dead.' The best and the worst times are only in your head.

Please don't adjust the light cos every orphaned atom is in its place tonight. Shadows dance around the room touching me like feathers and I can sense it's you. Your love is real. Dusk and faith directs a light on earth and other magnets. They captures souls in flight. Words appearing in a book fill pages as you look. We walk a trail of signs. My love is real. I won't leave you behind. I'll send you a sign. You'll know I am alive. You'll know love is alive. They'll know we were alive. You'll know love is alive.
