Track Name: Kid and The Queen
I’M LOSING CONTROL OF THE KNOBS IN MY BRAIN
THE LIGHTS BLINK AT YOUR BODY, THE WIRE’S UNTAMED...IM LOSING CONTROL...
IN YOUR OWN SMALL WORLD WITH ITS BIG BRASS WALLS
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THERE, CAN I TOUCH YOU AT ALL...
IN YOU OWN SMALL WORLD, AM I THE FALLING LEAVES
DRY AT THE BOTTOM, CRUSHED UNDER YOUR KNEES
WELL I WAS A KID AND YOU WERE A QUEEN
WITH ORANGE CIGARETTES AND A RED BEANIE
YOU WOULDN’T THINK LIKE I THINK ABOUT IT
NOW I’M IN THE CITY IN AN EMPTY ROOM
AND IM TOO OLD FOR DREAMS UNDER THE MOON
BUT I CAN PRETEND I MIGHT SEE YOU TOMORROW.
IN YOUR OWN SMALL WORLD WITH ITS BIG BRASS WALLS
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THERE, CAN I TOUCH YOU AT ALL
WELL I WAS A KID AND YOU WERE A QUEEN
WITH ORANGE CIGARETTES AND A RED BEANIE
YOU WOULDNT THINK LIKE I THINK ABOUT IT
LIFE’S A PARTY AFTER EVERYONE’S GONE
YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE IN LOVE THEN YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE WRONG
I WOULDNT HOPE TO HEAR MORE THAN JUST STATIC
WHEN I WAS A KID AND YOU WERE A QUEEN
WITH ORANGE CIGARETTES AND A RED BEANIE
YOU WOULDN’T THINK LIKE I THINK ABOUT IT
IM LOSING CONTROL OF THE KNOBS THE LIGHTS BLINK AT YOUR BODY THE WIRE'S UNTAMED...I’M LOSING CONTROL...
Track Name: Movie Screens
EVERY BITTER HEART, EVERY BITTER HAND
IS REACHING FROM MY CHEST FOR MY PROMISED LAND
WRAP ME IN MY FLAG, SEND ME TO THE SEA
COLOR OF MY BLOOD FADING IN THE DEEP
CAN'T YOU OFFER ME SOME SWEET SEDUCTION?
JUST LIE TO MY SKIN
I'LL TAKE IT, I WANT IT
FOR EVERY HAUNTED HOME SEVEN HAUNTED HEARTS
WE WON'T BE SAVED BY LOVE, IT'S A PLACE TO START
WELL CAN'T YOU OFFER ME SOME SWEET SEDUCTION?
ROCK ME IN THE DARKNESS
SOME FAKE PERFECTION, I NEED IT
I'LL BELIEVE IT
I MET YOU SEVERAL YEARS AGO ON A MOVIE SCREEN
I WAS NOT YET OLD
I WATCHED YOU SEVERAL YEARS AGO
KISSING IN THE RAIN YOU NEVER LOOKED COLD
I'VE LOVED YOU A HUNDRED YEARS TONIGHT
I WAS JUST A CHILD YOU WERE OUT OF SIGHT.
Track Name: Lemonade
SLIP AWAY, START A WAR, I DONT KNOW WHAT I’M FIGHT FOR
WHEN I LAY ON YOUR GROUND YOU SIT SO MUCH FARTHER NOW
I DON’T WANT TO STEAL YOU, DOES A CLOSER TOUCH KILL YOU
I HAVE NO MORE QUESTIONS I WON’T BE YOUR FOOL AGAIN
I’D PROBABLY JUST BREAK YOUR HEART, I JUST WANT TO TEAR MY WORLD APART
IT’S LIKE HOSTING MY OWN FUNERAL WITH NO ONE ELSE AROUND, MY FRIENDS ALL LEFT THIS...
THIS IS NOT A SERENADE FILL MY GLASS WITH LEMONADE
I BROUGHT A FLASK OF CHEAP GIN IF YOU CANNOT HIT THE BRIM
THIS IS NOT A FUNERAL, THIS IS NOT A FUNERAL,
THIS IS NO WONDERLAND, BUT THIS IS NOT A FUNERAL.
I WANT TO GET BACK TO YOU AND I WANT YOUR HEART TO COME THROUGH
THIS IS NOT A SERENADE, JUST FILL MY GLASS WITH LEMONADE
...I JUST WANT TO BREAK YOUR HEART
SLIP AWAY, START A WAR, THERES NOTHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR
WHEN I TOUCH YOUR SKIN YOU SAY THERES NOTHING WITHIN
YOU WON’T LET ME IN AS A LOVER, I DONT WANT TO LEAVE YOU AS A FRIEND
I WANT TO GO OUT IN BLOOD IN FIRE, NOT A CHILD DROWNING IN YOUR DEEP END
THIS IS NOT A SERENADE, JUST FILL MY GLASS WITH LEMONADE
THIS IS NOT A SERENADE, JUST FILL MY GLASS WITH LEMONADE.
Track Name: Holy Spies
YOU FOLLOW THE MASQUERADE TO THE UNDERSTAGE
IM THINKING THAT TIMES ARE STRANGE OR MY MIND IS STRANGE
YOU BE THE FIRE, ILL BE THE LONELY SEA
YOU BE THE VOICE, ILL BE THE SILENCE BENEATH
BUT I FEEL BETTER MORE THAN EVER RUNNING FROM YOUR HOLY SPIES
ITS AN ILLUSION TO MASK CONFUSION TREMBLING IN YOUR EYES
YOU DREAM OF A TWIST OF FATE IN THE SUMMERS END
AND ALL THESE SOULS YOU FALL UPON ARE THEY FOE ARE FRIEND
THE SUMMER HERE IS WHAT’S BEEN GONE
ON THIS RAGGED TRAIL BABYLON
BUT SOON YOU’LL SEE THE LIGHT IS GONE FROM ME
BUT I FEEL BETTER MORE THAN EVER RUNNING FROM YOUR HOLY SPIES
IT’S AN ILLUSION TO MASK CONFUSION TREMBLING IN YOUR EYES
BUT I FEEL BETTER...
Track Name: Cold Touch
SELL MY LIFE AWAY ON YOUR EPITAPH SUGGESTIONS
I WANT NOTHING MORE THAN A BULLETPROOF PERFECTION FOR TONIGHT
SO ROLL THE DICE AND CLOSE YOUR HANDS SHOW ME YOUR EYES AGAIN AGAIN
MY ONLY FRIEND TONIGHT
THE MOON RISING AND YOU KNOW IM DESPISING ITS SHALLOW GLOW
AND YOUR TOUCH THAT FALLS SO COLD
SEND YOUR SCORN INTO MY EMPTY HEARTED TREASURY
I AM NOT THE ONE TO DISPLAY YOUR ABSTRACT MEMORIES
SO ROLL THE DICE AND CLOSE YOUR HANDS SHOW ME YOUR EYES AGAIN AGAIN
THE MOON'S RISING AND YOU KNOW IM DESPISING ITS SHALLOW GLOW
AND YOUR TOUCH THAT FALLS SO COLD
Track Name: My Love's a Sea of Silence
MY LOVE'S A SEA OF SILENCE
DIAMONDS AND GOLD BELOW YOU
WE CAN SURVIVE THIS VIOLENCE
BELOW THE WAKES, BELOW THE HOPE YOU KNOW
MY LOVE'S A SEA OF SILENCE
SWELLING WITH PRAYERS AND POEMS
I HAVE NO PLACE WITH THE FAITHFUL
THERE IS NO STRENGTH
I WAS A CHILD OF FIRE
I HAD A HEART OF GOLD
I LEARNED THE ACHES OF DESIRE
SOMEWHERE IN THIS LIFE MY EYES HAVE GROWN OLD

I RUN TO MY CITY BUT MY CITY DON'T LOVE ME
THERE'S LOVE IN MY CITY BUT THIS CITY DON'T LOVE ME
