  2. THE SWEETNESS OF DEATH BY THE OBSIDIAN KNIFE

    I’ve got a flight and it’s leaving tonight
    Lord help me and I’m feeling blue
    I’m leaving my life behind me
    When I go I’m leaving you

    I’ve got a flight and it’s leaving tonight
    In slipstream, I will find my space
    Make my way to Tijuana
    Beneath the stars I will escape

    The vast ocean of emotions are dead to me
    My mind is cold and my heart is numb
    Lack of sleep and no melatonin
    There’s no shelter on the run

    You opened my arms to million stars
    Took my heart and you tore it apart
    No regrets, now the pain remains
    Turned away and I can’t stay

    London rain will remain a memory
    Locked away in a blood red box
    Your voice only an echo inside me
    Don’t look back in my thoughts

    You opened my arms to million stars
    You took my heart and you tore it apart
    No regrets, now the pain remains
    I’ve turned away and I can’t stay

    The sun will rise and the tides will ebb and flow
    The days will come and the days will go
    I live only for what’s ahead of me
    Life is short is all that I know

    The sun will rise tomorrow
    Of all things that is certain
    Though nothing in my life
    Is certain anymore

  3. WHAT EVER HAPPENED?

    I want to be forgotten,
    and I don’t want to be reminded.
    You say “please don’t make this harder.”
    No, I won’t yet.

    I wanna be beside her.
    She wanna be admired.
    You say “please don’t make this harder.”
    No, I won’t yet.

    Oh dear, is it really all true?
    Did they offend us and they want it to sound new?
    Top ten ideas for countdown shows…
    Whose culture is this and does anybody know?
    I wait and tell myself “life ain’t chess,”
    But no one comes in and yes, you’re alone…

    You don’t miss me, I know.

    Oh Tennessee, what did you write?
    I come together in the middle of the night.
    Oh that’s an ending that I can’t write, ‘cause
    I’ve got you to let me down.

    I want to be forgotten,
    and I don’t want to be reminded.
    You say “please don’t make this harder.”
    No, I won’t yet.

    I want to be beside her.
    She wanna be admired.
    You say “please don’t make this harder.”
    No, I won’t yet…

  4. CHANGE YOUR NAME

    If you ever feel afraid
    You can always change your name
    It might help you rearrange
    Your hopes and dreams for a better future

    You know there’ll always be a place
    For you right here under my doorway

    Rise up
    You will get stronger
    In time you’ll no longer feel the pain
    Will it ever go away?
    Will it ever go away?

    You know it feels like such a shame
    To let you go, see you walk away
    I don’t know if you’re the same girl that I knew
    Or are you a stranger?

    You know there’ll always be a place
    For you right here under my doorway

    Rise up
    You will get stronger
    In time you’ll no longer feel the pain
    Will it ever go away?
    Will it ever go away?

    If you ever feel afraid
    You can always change your name

    Rise up
    You will get stronger
    We break and all you feel is pain
    Will it ever go away?
    Rise up
    You will get stronger
    We break and all is doubt and pain
    Will it ever go away?
    Will it ever go away?

  5. COASTING

    The curtain’s dropping
    I stand in the fading lights of my summer
    My heart is breaking
    'Coz the happiest time of my life is ending

    Never laughing, only forgetting
    As I lose my memory
    The sun is for the last time setting

    All the time it takes
    My whole life could never last that long
    It’s sad but it’s true so I must get on
    With my short life meandering on and on
    Into inexistence

    Now I’m dreaming
    Of someone so precious
    The world’s too cruel to
    Hold her in its arms and hatefully break her

    Now I’m leaving
    I’m standing at the front door for the last time
    I was coasting in a dream world
    Smiling faces are no more

    All the time it takes
    My whole life could never last that long
    It’s sad but it’s true so I must get on
    With my short life meandering on and on
    Into inexistence

    If you’re coasting, if you’re sailing
    If you’re dreaming
    You can be my friend, we can dream together

    If you’re coasting, if you’re smiling
    If you’re nowhere
    Hide your face till no one’s looking

    All the time it takes
    My whole life could never last that long
    It’s sad but it’s true so I must get on
    With my short life meandering on and on
    Into inexistence

    I try so hard
    But I can never have her back again
    I lost it all, she heard me cry
    And she knows so well

    That it’s sad but it’s true so I must get on
    With my short life meandering on and on
    Into inexistence

    If you like me, if you’re like me
    If you’re coasting
    I will dream with you

  7. DIFFERENT TODAY

    He spent the week at his friend’s house
    It had been ages since they’d been in touch
    The weekend passed in a drunken haze
    It felt good, like the old days

    I lied you’re not so different today
    Don’t go so far away
    And without you my life is boring anyway

    They went down to the station on Sunday
    He felt sad as the train pulled away
    He wished that it would never end
    He knew he’d never see him again

    I lied you’re not so different today
    Don’t go so far away
    And without you my life is boring anyway

    I lied you’re not so different today
    Don’t go so far away
    I lied you’re not so different today
    Don’t go so far away

  8. PHYSICAL WORLD

    Come back to the physical world
    Come back to the physical world
    You’re lost in the digital world
    You’re lost in the digital world

    Let’s make a real connection
    New love, true perfection
    Something so meaningful
    Face to face
    So…

    Come back to the physical world
    Come back to the physical world
    You’re lost in the digital world
    You’re lost in the digital world

    Something so mesmerising
    Our two hearts colliding
    That you can’t emulate
    On your own
    So…

    Come back to the physical world
    Come back to the physical world
    You’re lost in the digital world
    You’re lost in the digital world

    Come back to the physical world

  9. INSTINCT

    I-N-S-T-I-N-C-T

    Shock Reaction, a lightning bolt
    Shaken senses, a violent jolt
    It’s called instinct
    Yeah, it’s called instinct

    This desire I’m thinking of
    I need to feel the heat of love
    It’s called instinct
    Yeah, it’s called instinct

    The second my eyes set on you
    I fell without a fight
    You left an imprint on my heart
    Overthrew my mind
    Before the wolves descend on us
    We’ll vanish in the night

    I’m animal, I’m not machine
    I live my life just how I feel
    It’s called instinct
    Yeah, it’s called instinct

    A sudden impulse I can’t ignore
    You’re the one I’ve been waiting for
    It’s called instinct
    Yeah, it’s called instinct

    The second my eyes set on you
    I fell without a fight
    You left an imprint on my heart
    Overthrew my mind
    Before the wolves descend on us
    We’ll vanish in the night

    The second my eyes set on you
    I fell without a fight
    You left an imprint on my heart
    Overthrew my mind
    Before the wolves descend on us
    We’ll vanish in the night

    It’s called instinct
    Yeah, it’s called instinct
    It’s called instinct
    Yeah, it’s called instinct
