LYRICS

 

Down by the still waters 

Broken lives can heal
I taste the blood so beautiful 

That it brings me to my knees 

 

It never runs out 

It never runs dry
I know it’s gonna break the chains 

That hold me down to die 

It never runs out
It never runs dry
I know it’s gonna break the chains 

And raise me to the sky 

 

Cos this is a love so crazy
I can’t understand
And though I can’t comprehend it 

It just keeps on washing over me 

 

Love that will last eternally 

Free as the air I breathe
This is a gift we can’t justify
We are children, innocent and clean 

It never runs out 

It never runs dry
I know it’s gonna break the chains 

That hold me down to die 

It never runs out
It never runs dry
I know it’s gonna break the chains 

And raise me to the sky 

 

Cos this is a love so crazy
I can’t understand
And though I can’t comprehend it 

It just keeps on washing over me 

 

Perfectly surrounded, it is holding me 

This is what I live for, this is heavenly 

Perfectly surrounded, it is holding me 

This is what I live for, this is heavenly 

 

Cos this is a love so crazy
I can’t understand
And though I can’t comprehend it 

It just keeps on washing over me

A Love So Crazy

 

Afraid of the Light

See the light that falls before me

We don’t want to see what the truth could be

So we say draw the curtains when the morning comes

We don’t want the Son to come and stop the fun so we say

 

Oh don’t come into the light and it will be alright

No exhibition of what we want to hide

And we are people of the night

Don’t think about what’s right

Just close your eyes and choose your own reality

 

Oh no, don’t be afraid

Living can change

We’ll be made perfect once again

I said open your eyes

And look to the skies

And see how much you’re worth

 

All the questions that we have in this life

Don’t need answering, we don’t want compromising

Can’t we just pretend there’s nothing to know

So that we can do whatever we want to

 

And oh don’t come into the light and it will be alright

No exhibition of what we want to hide

And we are people of the night

Don’t think about what’s right

Just close your eyes and choose your own reality

 

Oh no, don’t be afraid

Living can change

We’ll be made perfect once again

I said open your eyes

And look to the skies

And see how much you’re worth

 

You know it could’ve been

You know it could’ve been greater than you ever imagined

You know that you could be

The light for all to see

Please don’t let your fear stop you from singing

 

Oh no, don’t be afraid

Living can change

We’ll be made perfect once again

I said open your eyes

And look to the skies

And see how much you’re worth

 

Can you think for yourself now, honey?

Have a look and you might find something

Can you think for yourself now, honey?

Have a look and you might find something

Another Show

Bad dreams running wild 

And darkness amplified 

But you still see the smile 

I want you to see 

They won’t recognise 

The pain you try to hide 

And you keep telling lies 

To keep them at peace 

 

But it’s cold inside 

The mind that once could set the sky alight 

At night black velvet swallows you


And can you think of what it might be like
If you felt nauseous every time you smiled?
Just an off-hand comment eats you up inside
But is it all inside your mind? 

 

And it’s been so long but it won’t let go 

It’s a mad world but it’s all you know 

You can’t feel love but you know it’s close 

So come on, wire it up, watch it glow
Put on another show

 

It’s too hard to control
This broken electric soul
It’s too much, I don’t know
If I can be free
But you know you’ll survive 

You’ve been here a hundred times 

But still it’s hard to find 

Desire to be 

But it’s cold inside 

The mind that once could set the sky alight 

At night black velvet swallows you


And can you think of what it might be like
If you felt nauseous every time you smiled?
Just an off-hand comment eats you up inside
But is it all inside your mind? 

 

And it’s been so long but it won’t let go 

It’s a mad world but it’s all you know 

You can’t feel love but you know it’s close 

So come on, wire it up, watch it glow
Put on another show 

 

It’s just a big blank space so colour me in 

I wanna feel something so I won’t dive in 

Look what a mess you made all covered in sin 

And have you lost yourself cos you wanted to sing 

 

And it’s been so long but it won’t let go 

It’s a mad world but it’s all you know 

You can’t feel love but you know it’s close 

So come on, wire it up, watch it glow
Put on another show 

 
 

Enigma

I’m the one that makes your head spin

Bring you under cos my voice is hypnotising

I will be your new fixation

Hold you down with fascination

I’ll take you to the edge

 

Welcome to my broken mind of dystopia

I’ll make you feel something you have never felt before

Enter in through my eyes

You’ll be slipping through my mind in no time

Mystified and mesmerised

 

I see things that you would not believe

It’s extraordinary 

I dream in dimensions that you've never seen

Melodies that echo from within

They’re calling me deeper again

 

I’ll make you go insane

Trying to figure out the enigma of my mind

You will find

Something you can’t explain

A mystery inside

Don't be shy and don’t be blind

I’ll take you to the edge

 

There is more to me than meets the eye

I’ll have you wrapped around my finger Svengali-like

Keep you guessing, keep you gripped

Keep you magnetised

I’m the mastermind and I’ll thrive

I’ll take you to the edge

Grab a hold, don't be scared to join the mystery

I’ll show you secrets that have lasted through the centuries

I’m alive but I’m building on my legacy

Seventh Heaven is my home, it’s enlightening

 

Beauty is not necessary

You can do everything

Better to be something fascinating

All you need is some insanity

Cos nothing is normal with me

 

Beauty is not necessary

You can do everything

Better to be something fascinating

All you need is some insanity

Cos nothing is normal with me

 

I’ll make you go insane

Trying to figure out the enigma of my mind

You will find

Something you can’t explain

A mystery inside

Don't be shy and don’t be blind

I’ll take you to the edge

 

I’ll make you go insane

Trying to figure out the enigma of my mind

You will find

Something you can’t explain

A mystery inside

Don't be shy and don’t be blind

I’ll take you to the edge

 

Fake Smiles

Bright eyes, long hair

And a radiant smile

Cool air, no cares

And a laugh that could cry

Outside on fire

But you won’t let them in

I can see you’ve

Painted something paper thing

 

And when all of the lights go out

I’m here with you

When all of your dreams are lost

I’m here with you

 

So let me break your walls

Make you see that I will not let go

Lay your armour down and let me in close

It ain’t weak to let your scars be shown

I won’t let you fight this war alone

 

Locked up, weighted down

By a perfect facade 

Slow down, reach in

Deeper than you ever have

Dark scars covered up

Do they know where you’ve been?

Fragile glass heart

But opaque skin

 

And when all of the lights go out

I’m here with you

When all of your dreams are lost

I’m here with you

And when all of the lights go out

I’m here with you

In all of your brokenness

I’m here with you

 

So let me break your walls

Make you see that I will not let go

Lay your armour down and let me in close

It ain’t weak to let your scars be shown

I won’t let you fight this war alone

 

Fake smiles, no tears

There is nothing wrong with me

Strong shields, force fields

Superficial topics please

Pretty pictures, good sides

Heads that teem with our best lies

Everything is rosy till you

Get up close and look inside

 

This life

What a mess but I guess

That it’s fine if we can hide

All the smoke and the mirrors

Make everything alright

But I want you to see 

There’s more to me 

Will you show me your demons 

If I show you mine

 

So let me break your walls

Make you see that I will not let go

Lay your armour down and let me in close

It ain’t weak to let your scars be shown

I won’t let you fight this war alone

 

Guns With Guns

Everybody’s on the good side

In their own mind

Open up your eyes

Shut down your pride

And you might just find

An empathetic state of mind

 

You see ignorance breeds hate

It’s unknown so it’s a threat

No desire to educate

I just keep hearing them say

 

We’ll fight guns with guns

We’ll fight death with death

We’re not the ones at fault

We are the victims left

So we light up the sky

Attempt to pacify

Can that be true

Or just a way to justify

What we do?

 

Everybody is a good guy

The self-righteous can be blind

Open up your eyes

To see these lies

Another way to colonise

 

You see ignorance breeds hate

It’s unknown so it’s a threat

No desire to educate

I just keep hearing them say

We’ll fight guns with guns

We’ll fight death with death

We’re not the ones at fault

We are the victims left

So we light up the sky

Attempt to unify

Can that be true

Or just a way to justify

What we’ve done?

 

What we’ve done

What have we done?

What have we done?

What have we done, what have we done?

 

Do you know that they'd give it all

To go back

To go back?

You don't know how to see the world

It’s broken

It’s broken

 

So we’ll fight guns with guns

We’ll fight death with death

We’re not the ones at fault

We are the victims left

 

Hosanna

They say it’s all hard work

Just keep pushing and you’ll make it

With a little bit of luck

Have I even got what it takes

Or should I give it up?

I’m going nowhere fast

 

But I was too caught up

I forgot about the war going on within myself

Been giving over to the thing that’s a gift

With a prodigal intent

Go running home now

 

Because the world is tough

And you thought that you’d be good enough

But your feet keep stumbling

Till you fall on the ground 

But now there’s nothing left but

 

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna till the end of time

 

So will you take me back

Cos I’m only ever good enough when I ask you that

I need a reason for the things that I do

And where I’m at

Go running home now

 

Because the world is tough

And you thought that you’d be good enough

But your feet keep stumbling

Till you fall on the ground 

But now there’s nothing left but

 

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna till the end of time

 

But one cuts off his ear and one kills himself

Putting their restless minds through hell

Respect from the world is hard to find

But looking above breeds a satisfied mind

 

I know you’ll keep me going

I know you’ll keep me going

I know you’ll keep me going

I know you’ll keep me going

 

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna Hosanna

Oh Hosanna till the end of time

 

Human Condition(ing)

My head, it goes around in circles 

Relentless, unending 

My head, it knows that I am human

Unconscious, conforming

 

Are we the last of id-mind

Superego’s tight bind

Taking our humanity

To artificial mankind

 

Cos I can feel inside of me

Dystopia is where I long to be

I need to scream, I can’t break free

Malfunctioning society

 

This war of freedom and conditioning

Imperfect balancing

Control me, just take me and just use me

Do I need treated for your conformity?

 

Once shy, twice blind

Freedom that I can’t find

And I cry, I cry

Enemies in my mind

Inside

 

Cos I can feel inside of me

Psychosis taking over me

I need to see so anarchy

This violence is all that I can see

 

I have this war

Inside

 

Need To Feel

Mother

Can you hear me?

Am I bleeding?

No I can’t work out what’s wrong, oh

Brother

Are you near me

There’s no feeling

All my insides feel so numb, oh

 

Ooh I’m choking on dreams of a past life

Stumbling round with a sharp knife

Staying awake till the first light, inside

Ooh I’m feeling caught up in a landslide

Fifty-two weeks of alone time

Wanting the fear of a fast ride

 

I, I, I need to feel

I need to feel something there

I, I, I need to feel

I need to feel again

 

Father

Do you see me?

I’m not breathing

And I pray before it’s too late you

Discover

That I’m grieving

For no reason

Just an empty vessel longing for some

Life, dancing around like it’s all fine

You see me laugh in the sunshine

Desperate plea for a lifeline, inside

Ooh I constantly feel like I’m losing

I don’t know if I can do this

I just can’t face being human

 

I, I, I need to feel

I need to feel something there

I, I, I need to feel

I need to feel again

 

We’ve got all we need to be free from our sin

All of the glitter and jam jars of gin

You’re holding my hand as we’re dancing to Slim

It’s a cool night

Hold tight

You and me, we’re always running through life

Iridescent, fluorescent and sparkling with light

Laughing and crying and painting our smiles

It’s a cruel life

Hold tight

 

I, I, I need to feel

I need to feel something there

I, I, I need to feel

I need to feel again

 

Not Myself

I was lost, I was trapped in a fantasy 

Heaven help me, I’m tired and I want to leave 

There are walls all around that I cannot see 

Closing in till I’m gone, till I cannot breathe 

 

All the lights are 

Trying to call me 

I’d be gone in another life but 

I am falling 

And I like it 

Drowning in the sea 

 

And I am not myself 

Can’t understand what’s happening to me 

And only sleep can pull me out 

I live in dreams and memories 

And I want this life to tear me up 

Exploding into melody 

And I tell myself it’s worth it all 

As long as you remember me 

 

Don’t be sad that I’m gone for a little while 

I’ll be back soon again with a stitched up smile 

Yeah, my head is a bomb and it’s been rewired 

But I have no regrets asking for a trial 

 

All the lights are 

Trying to call me 

I’d be gone in another life but 

I am falling 

And I like it 

Drowning in the sea

 

And I am not myself 

Can’t understand what’s happening to me 

And only sleep can pull me out 

I live in dreams and memories 

And I want this life to tear me up 

Exploding into melody 

And I tell myself it’s worth it all 

As long as you remember me 

And I’m here in the valley of the shadow of death 

But he won’t seem to talk to me
It’s a brand new place that I’ve never been
So excuse me I’m not ready to leave
And I’m here in the valley of the shadow of death 

But he won’t seem to talk to me
It’s a brand new place that I’ve never been
So excuse me I’m not ready to leave 

I am not myself 

Can’t understand what’s happening to me 

And only sleep can pull me out 

I live in dreams and memories 

And I want this life to tear me up 

Exploding into melody 

And I tell myself it’s worth it all 

As long as you remember me 

 

Poison

Are you deadening your mind?

Feeding thoughts of things unkind?

They make you fit between the lines

Are you numb to what’s inside?

 

Oh we don't care if there’s no substance

Gold-plated trash will do just fine

The only thing we bring is judgement

To see if you fit the design

 

They tell me who I want to be

Now there’s nothing more to me

Two-dimensionality

Cut me open you will see

There is nothing in between

Superficiality

 

You got to learn to let go

Of the poison in your brain

(Are they controlling ya)

You got to learn to let go

Don’t you know it’s all a game

(Are they controlling ya)

 

You obey and you comply

Intelligence is compromised

Are we ever asking why?

Or are we living in denial?

 

Do you know it’s all just lies

Multiplying in your mind

Yet they cheapen your desires

 

Are they trying to control

Every thought that you propose?

Are we all becoming clones?

 

You got to learn to let go

Of the poison in your brain

(Are they controlling ya)

You got to learn to let go

Don’t you know it’s all a game

(Are they controlling ya)

You got to learn to let go

Of the poison in your brain

(Are they controlling ya)

You got to realise oh

You’ve been taught to play their game

(Are they controlling ya)

 

Yea, you've been taught to play their game

You've been taught to play their game

You've been taught to play their game

 

You got to learn to let go

Of the poison in your brain

(Are they controlling ya)

You got to learn to let go

Don’t you know it’s all a game

(Are they controlling ya)

You got to learn to let go

Of the poison in your brain

(Are they controlling ya)

You got to realise oh

You’ve been taught to play their game

(Are they controlling ya)
