Lyrics

Love Ability


Run into the light


Don’t fantasise about me anymore

Oh to you it’s worth saving, but not to me

You want to pave your way into any soul

Well you’re the Mona Lisa, but not to me

Let’s draw the last breath out from this protocol

It’s killed my brain; I’m ready to release

Running people to fill your base desire

But I lay low for you and me


Run into the light, running from the lies

I’ve had my share of relativity

Run into the light, running from the lies

I’ll find my way back to lovability


All those Pharisees and animals

Proud of your nation! To you it’s heaven

Your sun worship is now in paper form

It has killed your hearts, you’re heretics and heathens


I blew my last wish on a base desire

To kill is brave! I’ll blood let to the beat

I don’t sell my soul to any woman

But I lay low for you and me


Run into the light, running from the lies

I’ve had my share of relativity

Run into the light, running from the lies

I’ll find my way back to lovability


I'll find my way back to lovability


Run into the light, running from the lies

I’ve had my share of relativity

Run into the light, running from the lies

I’ll find my way back to lovability


Run into the light

Turn Me to the Tide

I split myself from the family tree

You ripped that rug from under my feet

I dug my heels for twenty years, believe!

Don't you recognise me?

I begged those branches [would] break down and bleed

You curled that cricket ball to my favourite memory

Now I'm in hell, my fingernails are

Clawing at the peat

Won't you reconcile with me?

Push me away

Turn me to the tide

Take me away

And burn that photograph

I kept my heart safe [and] bone dry for twenty years

Beautiful birds they don't make a sound to my ears

You kept all the weapons that you don't really need

You're cold inside from protection of your greed

Push me away

Turn me to the tide

Take me away

And burn that photograph

Now you're making a table for my room

I'm not gonna sit there and hold my tongue

Blood is thicker than water's a fable

Push me away

Turn me to the tide

Take me away

And burn that photograph

Let Down

I want to feel blessed all the time

We are running out of time

To answer those questions on our minds

You’re bound to the place you call home

I’ll stay right here

Me alone and my chandeliers

I’ve left my musings long ago


I’ve let myself down

So many times

I can’t breathe with all those questions on my mind

 
We are running out of time

To answer those questions on our minds

The grooves of our youth are old and familiar

Oh it’s a miracle if I die

With a true friend to shut my eyes

I want to feel blessed all the time

(Annie B)

I’ve let myself down so many times

Now I’m running out of time

Clear those questions from my mind

I’ve let myself down so many times

Get those demons from my side

Now I'm running out of time


I’ve let myself down

So many times

I can’t breathe with all those questions on my mind

Oh, to answer those questions on our minds

You're bound to the place you call home

(Annie B)

We’re bound to those

Places we call home

I’ve left my musings long ago


Oh I’d deliver my sins to Christ

If I knew how to break the ice

I want to feel blessed all the time, oh

(Annie B)

I’ve let myself down so many times

Now I’m running out of time

Clear those questions from my mind

I’ve let myself down so many times

Get those demons from my side

I’ve let myself down so many times

Now I’m running out of time

time, time, time

I’ve let myself down

So many times

I can’t breathe with all those temptations at my side

I’ve let myself down

So many times

I can’t breathe with all those questions at my side

So many times

I can't breathe with all those questions at my side


I want to feel blessed all the time

Scars


Whoa have you seen my scars ?

Eyes close in

Rad is on the beat

Proof can’t help this venture

‘I saw him first!’

Turn the other cheek

Give him gloves and shelter


But when the temperature rises one or two degrees

It’s time to bed down on the pavement

We keep the contract if we promise to deceive

Hide your body in the station!


Oh, have you seen my scars ?

Bright ideas, nothing to the team

‘You must crunch those numbers!’

Known self harm, but she can hold a pen

She can pull together

Our mouths are breathing and I’m looking at the steam

Glass revealing life between us

You promised shelter and now I’m begging for the key

I’m nobody and you’re a prisoner


Oh, have you seen my scars ?

A New Revolution


Cut right through

Right to the meat

Don’t wanna break your heart

When I go away

Now I’m leaving for the circus

So we cant really play

Gonna reach right through

Right to the meat

Into the middle of the lover

That I wanted to keep


Break that glass

I’ll roam free

Now I’m bleeding but I’m floating

Like the salt in the sea

Oh, cut right through

Right to the meat

Find a new revolution deep inside of me

For life

Oh for life


Break that glass, I’ll roam free

Find a new revolution deep inside of me

I’m alive

Oh I’m alive


Cut right through

Right to the meat

Ear marked pages

But I’m already spent

I’m lifting up the veil 

With the ink in my pen

Now I’m trying to give love

To the devil within

I’m looking down the well

I’ve got the prayer for my sins


Had my life mapped out

But I gave into fear

Now I'm sleeping by the altar

Hoping God will appear

Oh, listen up Jim; take that cue!

Find a new revelation deep inside of you

For life

Oh, for life!


Break that glass

I’ll roam free

Find a new revolution deep inside of me

I’m alive

Oh I’m alive


Oh I’m alive!


Break that glass

I’ll roam free

Find a new revolution deep inside of me

I’m alive

Oh tonight


Break that glass

I’ll roam free

Find a new revolution deep inside of me

I’m alive

Oh I’m alive

Prize

What a day to own the town

Felt so strange to win a prize

Her name was lost as he wept

A soap boxer seer, promised lies


You build to build, you push it hard

It never ends, you never win

I came close the other day

I watched you move I won a prize


Even ballerinas laugh

Curse and spit, cum and cry

Not today

For a while I watched you move

I won a prize

You build to build, you push it hard

It never ends, you never win

I came close the other day

I watched you move I won a prize

Prize, won a prize

Even ballerinas laugh

Curse and spit, cum and cry

Not today

For a while, I watched you move

I won a prize

I watched you move

I won a Prize

Not today

For a while I watched you move

I won a Prize

The Day You Left Me

I think I'll run away

Right over the hill

Or maybe way down by the river

Where I'll watch it flow

I knew you'd never stay

I could see it in your eyes

I know how hard I've tried to love you

But you were always full of leaving me

And every day I say to myself

I'm gonna follow you out of here

In every way I pray to myself

I'll leave tomorrow without a fear

Oh its just like the day

The day you left me begging

Begging for you

When I see your face again

A scar against the sky

All those promises we've made

All empty and broken now

I knew you'd never say

All that's on your mind

And all that's in your heart, well

You kept it locked inside

And everyday I say to myself

I'm gonna follow you out of here

In every way I pray to myself

I'll leave tomorrow, without a fear

It's just like the day

The day you left me begging

Oh begging for you

And everyday I say to myself

I'm gonna follow you out of here

In every way I pray to myself

I'll leave tomorrow, without a fear

It's just like the day x 2

It's just like the day

The day you left me begging

Oh begging for you

It's just like the day

I think I'll run away

Right over the hill

Or maybe way down by the river

Where I'll be alone

One of a Kind

You are becoming one of a kind

I'm still carrying the hurt inside

You go your way, I will go mine

I'm still hanging on to this lie

Please don't call me. How many times?!

My heart needs peace now, put it aside

You go your way, I will go mine

I'm still carrying the hurt inside

I no longer believe in love in this life

You go your way, I will go mine

You go your way, I will go mine


You are becoming one of a kind

I'm still standing the hurt inside

I no longer believe in love in this life

You go your way
