The Valley

These are days of hit and run in the stream with everyone
Is a moments of our lives
On a wandering river, going on together
Many journeys to arrive

I’ve been walking through the valley
Through the tall grass and the shadows
And I feel it, I can see it
Yes, I need it, I believe it

Through the city and the towers
Turning minutes into hours
And I feel it, I can see it
Yes, I need it, I believe it

When I think I’m being strong and I lose direction
Then the life starts looking mischievous
Finding revelation out of desperation
Always stretching time but it’s never long enough

You think you’re happy, think you’re free
But maybe we’re just comfortably dizzy

But I’m running through the valley
Through the tall grass and the shadows
And I feel it, I can see it
Yes, I need it, I believe it

Through the city and the towers
Turning minutes into hours
And I feel it, I can see it
Yes, I need it, I believe it

But I’m running through the valley
Through the tall grass and the shadows
And I feel it, I can see it
Yes, I need it, I believe it

Through the city and the towers
Turning minutes into hours
And I feel it, I can see it
Yes, I need it, I believe it

Red Carpet Massacre

Dark sun rose on the ridge cut clear across the sky
As good a day as any to die
No reservation, madam, no reason to know why
Running late, stiletto heels
Try to cruise, send out the wheels

You spend your life in preparation for this day
Breathe in the air, it’s loaded with fame
Check out those weapons, sister, before you hit the fray
String of pearls meet bits of gems
Enter the battle of the lenses

Red carpet massacre
Don’t wanna hassle you
Red carpet massacre
Death stalk paparazzi, yeah

Red carpet massacre
It’s gonna mess with you
We’re in business
You’re on the hit list

There’s not so many now still standing on their feet
Their knives are out and singing so sweet
Engage with sharper minds that cut you when you meet
Any place to mess around
When someone wants to take you down

Maybe you think you’re above this
But baby, we know that you love it
Baby, you know where to shove it
Apply your lipstick ‘fore dying in public

Red carpet massacre
Don’t wanna hassle you
Red carpet massacre
Death stalk paparazzi, yeah

Red carpet massacre
Don’t wanna mess with you
Now it’s time, next in line
We’re so busted, done and dusted

Nite-Runner

 

You’re nocturnal, only come out at night
And I’m learning all the ways you wanna ride
‘Cause you’re on the roam
But not until the darkness arrives
And I’m certain, I’ll catch up to you
One of these times baby, oh

Can I get my hands on you tonight?
(I must be feeling something)
Something tells me I’m in for a ride
(I wonder if you see me coming)

Can I get my hands on you tonight?
(Tonight has got me running)
Something tells me I’m in for a ride
(Right into your nighttime world)

‘Cause I’m a nite runner, I think I’m falling for you
Nite runner, you got a spell that put me under
Nite runner, whatcha gonna do with it now?
Nite runner, nite, nite runner

Night scatters when you walk into the room
Under shadow, I can feel the heat in you
Should I be surprised?
I see the possibility moving right across to me
It all matters when I’m getting close to you
Hey yeah, uh huh

Can I get my hands on you tonight?
(I must be feeling something)
Something tells me I’m in for a ride
(I wonder if you see me coming)

Can I get my hands on you tonight?
(Tonight has got me running)
Something tells me I’m in for a ride
(Right into your nighttime world)

‘Cause I’m a nite runner, I think I’m falling for you
Nite runner, you got a spell that put me under
Nite runner, whatcha gonna do with it now?
Nite runner, nite, nite runner

Love is haunting
She wanted to go, that’s what she told me
Love is haunting
She wanted to go, I cannot, cannot

Nite runner, I think I’m falling for you
Nite runner, you got a spell that put me under
Nite runner, whatcha gonna do with it now?
Nite runner, nite, nite runner

Nite runner, I think I’m falling for you
Nite runner, you got a spell that put me under
Nite runner, whatcha gonna do with it now?
Nite runner, nite, nite runner, runner

Falling Down


Once was a man who consumed his place and time
He thought nothing could touch him
But here and now it’s a different storyline
Like the straw he is clutching

Why has the sky turned gray?
Hard to my face and cold on my shoulder
And why has my life gone astray?
Scarred by disgrace, I know that it’s over

Because I’m falling down
With people standing ’round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time? Could I find
Someone out there to help me?

Howl at the wind rushing past my lonely head
Caught inside its own motion
How I wish it was somebody else instead
Howling at all this corrosion

Why did the luck run dry
Laugh in my face, so pleased to desert me
Why do the cruel barbs fly?
Now when disgrace can no longer hurt me

Because I’m falling down
With people standing ’round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time? Could I find
Someone out there to help me?

Because I’m falling down
With people standing ’round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time? Could I find
Someone out there to help me?

I don’t know why
I don’t know, here I go

Box Full O’ Honey

Sharpened up the view
the edge of me and you
and all good sense that dreamt no further
as the ghost will shed the trees
I’m tremblin’ on my knees
but I’m still drawn on by the the murmur

Are you laughing at me now?
In my circumstance
When still I wear your crown
my life’s penitence
for what? what’s so funny?
Box full o’ honey

What I thought a pretty tune
was howling at the moon
to keep me company this evening
it’s so lonely in the dirt
a scratching at the hurt
when I so generously believe you
laughing at me now?
In my circumstance
When still I where your crown
some cruel penitence
for what? what’s so funny?
Box full o’ honey

Is she flirting with me now?
Is she dying with me now?
Are you flirting with me now?
You’ll always be my queen of tumble down
Miss Melancholy
Are you flirting with me now?
In my circumstance
when still I wear your crown
and my life’s a penitence for what?
what’s so funny?
ain’t it funny?
Box full o’ honey

Skin Divers

Walking under skies
Waiting for the fall
Meet me at the cornershop
I’ll show you it all
Free you of your mind
Something you wont find
In the west-end pages
with your google dirty fingers

It’s a skin dive
In deep silence we are
Going underwater
It’s a lifeline
Teardrop, bullets, all night
Dip into the water

Rap:
Baby, that’s what it feels like
when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air
That’s what it feels like
when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air


Wipe us of the face
Of the human race
Whichever way you look
it’s indisposed or disgraced
Fighting on the shore
The hoi polloi want more
Howling bloody murder
but it’s nothing just a murmur

In your skin dive
In deep silence we are
Going underwater
It’s a lifeline
Teardrop, bullets, all night
Slip into the water

Rap:
Baby….that’s what it feels like
when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air
That’s what it feels like
when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air

A blushing rose is torn
From these sugar walls
I’ve misplaced my future
could I please borrow yours?
Panic on the scene
You know what I mean
Anything you want to be
the only thing you want from me

Is skin dive
In deep silence we are
Going underwater
It’s a lifeline
Teardrop, bullets, all night
Go inside the water

Rap:
Babygirl you’re swimming
A little too deep
So deep….that I think you might hit a reef
I think you low on oxygen
And you’re too glad to leave
Babygirl swim to the top
Grab my hand and hold me and breathe

Baby….that’s what it feels like
when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air
That’s what it feels like
when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air

Tempted

You’ve been risin’ through the flow
You require a little bit more
To excite, you will go
Gettin’ busy on the floor

All about the way you move it
When you really got to prove it
Finally you will know
What it is you’re turnin’ on

I am here to tempt you, oh yeah
Like you know I’m meant to, oh yeah
Devil gonna tempt you, oh yeah
How much do you want to? Oh, oh

Get back to London, comin’ undone
When you ride the underground
Some misguidance, breakin’ silence
Got your body started now

And you love the way you’re movin’
When you really got to prove it
Finally it’s what you do
What it is you’re turning on

I am here to tempt you, oh yeah
Like you know I’m meant to, oh yeah
Devil gonna tempt you, oh yeah
How much do you want to? Oh, oh

Night is gonna tempt you, oh yeah
Like you know it’s meant to, oh yeah
Devil gonna tempt you, oh yeah
Devil gonna tempt you, oh yeah

If you want to know, oh yeah
Do you want to know? Oh yeah
What it is you’re turning on
What it is you’re turning on

If you want to know
What it is you’re turning on
Do you want to know
What it is you’re turning on?

Zoom In

Stood on the line
You understand I’ve been waiting forever
Come rain, come shine
In the wind, in the snow, in the filthy weather

You got it all worked out
Yeah, but it knocks you out
I’m zooming in

Now she arrives
In a flaming crash like a falling star
Heading straight for the dive
Gonna make some cash with that avatar

You got it all worked out
I know you know I don’t want you to go
Yeah, but it knocks you out
I’m zooming in on you, on you

Don’t look back you’re a heart attack
Don’t look back you’re a heart attack
Don’t look back you’re a heart attack
Don’t look back you’re a heart attack

You got it all worked out
Yeah, but it knocks you out

We’re not alone
In the second life there are millions like us
Right here in the stones
In the air too bright all the new insiders

You got it all worked out
I know you know I don’t want you to go
Yeah, but it knocks you out
I’m zooming in on you, on you

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
I know you know I don’t want you to go
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
I’m zooming in and out on you

I’m zooming in and out on you
Zooming in and out on you

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
I know you know I don’t want you to go
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
I’m zooming in and out on you

She’s Too Much


She’s gentle to the touch
She’s everything head first
So happy to be causing trouble

Sometimes the pressure gets too much
And you think she’s going to burst
And shatter like a Christmas bubble

I’ll be there when the world
Is coming down upon her
When she’s scared I’ll be there
Fighting in her corner

She cries when she’s alone
For all life’s little knocks
Everything is supposed to make us tougher

Thinking it doesn’t really show
But I know how she hurts
And I can’t bare to see her suffer

I’ll be there when the world
Is coming down upon her
When she’s scared I’ll be there
Fighting in her corner

I’ll be there when the world
Is closing to surround her
In the air, as she falls
With my arms around her

Holding on, I’m looking out
For her thin skin
Because she’s everything
And I don’t think she knows

She’s such a gentle touch
She’s too much, a gentle touch

She likes to catch the sun
Plays with it like a ball
And never mind whatever keeps it burning

Someday she might just be the one
Whose going to save us all
If this apocalypse is coming

I’ll be there when the world
Is coming down upon her
When she’s scared I’ll be there
Fighting in her corner

I’ll be there when the world
Is closing to surround her
In the air as she falls
With my arms around her

Holding on, I’m looking out
For her thin skin
Because she’s everything
But I don’t think she knows

I don’t think she knows
I don’t think she knows
(She’s such a gentle touch)
I don’t think she knows
(she’s too much, a gentle touch)

Dirty Great Monster

There’s a dirty great monster in this house
We pretend that it’s not there
And there’s no escape from its grip
But nobody seems to care

Do you ever wonder
About the days when we were straight?
But daddy got the hunger
So much to hide, we learn to lie

So watch yourself in the hallway
You’re not supposed to know
‘Cause we’re all afraid of each other
We’re the victims in this show

Well, do you ever wonder
About the days when we were straight?
When daddy got the hunger
Too much to hide, we learn to lie

Silently outnumbered
We made mistakes when we were straight
Now we’re all going under
Oh, oh, so with a sigh we say goodbye

Last Man Standing

Now an unexpected peace comes to the day
As the howling dimmed, a fighting dies away
When the hanging dust is clearing from the air
You can just make out a lonely figure there

He’s the last man standing on the track
He does not look down, he does not look back
He’s the last man standing on the track
You can’t hold him down, you can’t hold him back

The last man standing on the track
He does not look down, he does not look back
He’s the last man standing on the track
You can’t hold him down, you can’t hold him back

He’s sorry for the wrong that he has done
And he cries out for the anger for so long
All the cuts and bruises suffered in whose name
Oh, but now is not the time to face his shame

He’s the last man standing on the track
He does not look down, he does not look back
He’s the last man standing on the track
You can’t hold him down, you can’t hold him back

The last man standing on the track
He does not look down, he does not look back
He’s the last man standing on the track
You can’t hold him down, you can’t hold him back

Cry Baby Cry (Itunes & Japan Bonus Track)

One of these nights you wait and see
One of these nights you’re gonna realize
The way your pride comes at a cost
Leaving you short on sympathy
Where is the evidence you need to know
You’re better off than the rest

Given attention more than touch
Over the time it’s nothing much to show
Keeping it all together
Seems like forever
One of these days you’ll kiss and tell
It’s in the mirror, gonna spill it out
Whatever do you know, what do you, do you know?

A selfish obsession, a fake suicide
You can’t see the truth for the dollars in your eyes
They’re fading and that makes you
Cry Baby Cry
But it ain’t gonna kill you now

Can you depend on your champagne
Socialist friends to drop your name in their
(questionable) Four Viper supernova rides
however great they claim to be
only betrays their insecurity–yeah
See how they fall from those highs

Afraid of dragons in the smoke
Gonna go rehab but that’s a joke
It’s getting old don’t tell them all we’ve heard it
before
You’re welcome to celebrity
Doing the thing so famously
Must wear your reputation wrong, it must be such a bore

A selfish obsession, a fake suicide
You can’t see the truth for the dollars in your eyes
They’re fading and that makes you
Cry Baby Cry
But it ain’t gonna kill you now

Cry Baby Cry
Cry Baby Cry

Chorus
A selfish obsession, a fake suicide
You can’t see the truth for the dollars in your eyes
They’re fading and that makes you
Cry Baby Cry
But it ain’t gonna kill you now

It does make you stronger, yeah

Cry Baby Cry
Cry Baby Cry
Cry Baby Cry
Cry Baby Cry
