Lyrics

Underneath the Stars
06:17
Floating here
Like this with you
Underneath the stars
Aligned
For 13 billion years
The view
It's beautiful
And ours alone tonight
Underneath the stars

Spinning round
And round with you
Watching shadows
Melt the light
So shining
From our eyes
A tear
Another space is ours
Alone tonight
Watch as shadows melt

The waves, break
The waves, break

Whisper in my ear, a wish
"We could drift away so far"
Your voice
Inside of my head
Like this
It's infinite
The hours alone tonight
We could drift away

Flying here
Like this with you
Underneath the stars
Aligned
For 13 billion years
The view
It's beautiful
And ours alone tonight
Underneath the stars

(Everything is gone?)

Everything Gone
? still to\?
Together as now
Forever as one
In each others arms
So near and so far
Together as now
Underneath the stars

As the waves, break
The Only One
03:55
Oh I love, Oh I love, Oh I love
What you do to my head
When you pull me upstairs
And you push me to bed.
I love what you do to my head.
It's a mess out there!

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to my heart
When you push me back down
And then pull me apart.
I love what you do to my heart.
It's the best, oh yeah!

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to my lips
When you suck me inside
And you blow me a kiss.
I love what you do to my lips
It's so sweet in there.

Oh I love, love, love, love
What you do to my hips
When you blow me outside
And then suck me like this.
I love what you do to my hips
It's the beat oh yeah!

You're the only one I cry for
The only one I try to please.
You're the only one I sigh for
The only one I die to squeeze.
And it gets better everyday, I play
With you it's such a scream.
Yeah it gets better everyday, I say
With you it's so extreme.
Yeah it gets wetter everyday, I stay
With you it's like a dream.

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to my skin.
Please slip me on
And slide me in.
I love what you do to my skin
It's a\? oh yeah.

Oh I love, love, love, love
What you do to my bones
When you slide me up
And take me home.
I love what you do to my bones
It's the crush oh yeah.

You're the only one I cry for
The only one I try to please.
You're the only one I sigh for
The only one I die to squeeze.

And it gets hazier anyway, I sway
With you it's such a scream
Yeah it gets mazier every play, I say
With you it's so extreme.
Yeah it gets crazier everyday, I stay
With you it's like a dream.

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to me
The Reasons Why
04:35
I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
Got no need to understand about my big surprise

Oh I am falling through the sky
You remember this?
I am falling in their eyes
You remember the kiss?

I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
Got no need to understand about my big surprise
I won't beg to hang you up about my love of life
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

I am writing you a letter
Getting better
Can I see you?
When,
All the lights go out together
Blame the weather
Yeah the cold again
In the darkness for a second
I am sure I see them smiling then
I feel them calling me
Yeah they are calling me

And I am falling through the stars
You remember now?
Yeah I am falling in their arms
You remember how?
Oh I am falling through the sky
You remember this\?
I am falling in their eyes
You remember the kiss?

I won't try to pull you in about my sacrifice
Makes no sense to get upset about the other side
I won't beg to put you out about my right to die
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

I am calling you at midnight
Feeling alright, can I tell you?
When?
On the line no sound but my words
Must be night birds on the wire again
In the silence for a second
I am sure I hear them laughing then
I feel them calling me
Yeah they are calling me

I am falling through the stars
You remember now
Yeah, I am falling in their arms
You remember how
I am falling through the sky
You remember this
I am falling in their eyes
You remember the kiss

"We know"
They said
"You're holding on
To nothing left of something gone"

"We know"
They said
"In letting go
Of fear and dread
And all you know
You'll lose the need of certainty
And make-believe eternity
To find the true reality
In beautiful infinity"

But I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why
Freakshow
02:28
I can't believe it
I must be dreaming
She turns
The sound down
Says "I am heaving
This is a freakshow"
And I am screaming
She spins
The world round
I want to stop

Bittersweet again
Her opening move
Down and out in black
Soft shiny and smooth
Looks like the alien
Crowd got groove
She burns her name
Into my arm
But I can never
Get through

To play the game
She's trying to lose
Her ultraviolet makes it
Harder to choose
Looks like the edge
Of the earth got moved
She blurs a way
Across the floor
I spin
To swallow the view

[Chorus]
And it's the same sway
Yeah
It's the same slide
It's the same stare
Oh
It's the same smile
Yeah
It's the same but
It's not quite right

Oh
It's insane
She shakes like a freak
Stuck in the middle
Of the room for a week
Looks like the only way
To get on the beat
Is take her up
On how to swing
But I am
Missing my feet

[Chorus]

I'm in a step, out
She two more steps
Down
For three steps up
Clap
And go around
Ow
It makes my head buzz
She wants to come now
I try to stop

Always infradig her
Finishing move
Up and down in black
Soft shiny and smooth
Looks like the alien
Crowd got groove
She cuts a number
Out my arm
But I can never
Get through

To play this game
She's trying to lose
The stuff from Mars
Makes it harder
To choose
Looks like
The final frontier
Got moved
She blurs a way
Across the floor
I spin to swallow
The view

[Chorus]

I can't believe it
I must be dreaming
She turns
The lights up
Says she is leaving
This is a freakshow
And I am beaten
She spins
The world round
I have to stop
Sirensong
02:22
It could've been her golden hair
That turned my head
I didn't look to stare
Like I was hypnotized
But I was fixed
On how she pointed slowly down
And low I sank
And still without a sound
The world was far away
And I was tricked

It could've been her silver skin
That drew me on
I didn't mean to spin
Like I was mesmerized
But I was rapt
Without a name or memory
I waited there
Too scared to even breathe?

She sang, she sang, she sang

She sang
"Tell me you love me
And beg me to stay"
She sang
"Tell me you love me
Before it's too late"
She sang
"Give me your life
Or I must fly away
And you will never hear this song again"

It could've been her crystal eyes
That made me stop
I didn't want to sigh
Like I was stupefied
But I was thrown
And at that point of no return
My whole life hanging
On a single word
To be hers evermore
Or mine alone

She sang, she sang, she sang

She sang
"Tell me you love me
And beg me to stay"
She sang
"Tell me you love me
Before it's too late"
She sang
"Give me your life
Or I must fly away
And you will never hear this song again"
The Real Snow White
04:42
You've got what I want

Oh yeah!
It's only for the night
And I will give it back tomorrow I swear
She can barely breathe
Don't stare
I know the dress is tight
But it was all I had to wear
Give me what I need
Please share
You know it's only right
And I would never lie to you
I wouldn't dare

[Chorus]
I made a promise to myself
I wouldn't start with anyone else but
You know how it is with these promises

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made to be broken in two
Sometimes the only thing to do

Oh no!
It's all coming back
How I came to in a sticky three-day hole
Didn't see the sign
Go slow
Too busy tuning static on the radio
She hissed it in a song
Don't go
It always fades to black
But that's why I love the trip
It's so inevitable

[Chorus]

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made to be less than they seem
Whenever you've got what I need

And you've got what I need

For service with a smile
I have to walk in on my hands
And roll for free
You say it's all the same
Ennui
You're not the real snow white
The real snow white is on my knee I didn't need to get
Id
It's simply minimum height
And getting all dressed up
In seven ways to please

[Chorus]

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made to be broken one day
If there's no time to get away

Uh-oh!
She wasn't made to shine
She was really only ever made to glow
I left her in the dark
No show
Quiet sucking on a line
It was a tricky gun to load
And I didn't get to fire
Hi-ho!
She's off to work for time
I should have finished out with higher
Up than low

[Chorus]

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made before right becomes wrong
Whenever you've got what I want

And you've got what I want

Oh yeah!
It's only for the night
And I will give it back tomorrow
I swear
The Hungry Ghost
04:29
All the things we never know we need

Looks like we get them in the end
Measure time in leisure time and greed
And by the time we get to spend
A floating bed
A head of stone
A home plugged into every phone

Kimono coral floral print
Exclusive tint and cut reclusive
No it doesn't come for free
But it's the price
We pay for happiness
No don't talk about more to life than this
Dream a world maybe no one owns

No don't think about all the life we miss
Swallow doubt as the hunger grows
Make believe its like no one knows
Even if we turn more to most
We'll never satisfy the hungry ghost
All the stuff we know we never want

Seems like we get it anyway
Safe to say it isn't really wrong
Not when we know we only
Throw it all away
Yeah all of this we never know we want
Its like we get it anyway

Safe to say it isn't ever wrong
Better to get than to delay
A 3d screen
A cleaner fit
A bit pulled out of every hit
Addicted latest greatest piece

Design caprice and make the headline
No it doesn't come for free
But it's the price
We pay for happiness
No don't talk about more to life than this
Dream a world maybe no one owns
No don't think about all the life we miss

Swallow doubt as the hunger grows
Make believe its like no one knows
Even if we turn more to most
We'll never satisfy the hungry ghost
And all of this
We know we never need

Well it's the price
We pay for happiness
Switch
03:42
Sometime it seems
I stopped being myself
And without a word
Turned into somebody else
Full of wishes wants dreams
And desires
For a life
Of conceit and deceit
And repeat and rewrite
Not sure who I was
Before this me and I changed
But I know this me now
Is not really the same

Friends are as strangers
And strangers as friends
And I feel like I'm wired in a why
Yeah my friends are as strangers
And strangers as friends
And I feel like I'm lost in a lie

And every day my world gets slower
And colder and smaller
And older and lower
And every day
My treat gets closer to trick
Yeah every day my world gets slower
And colder and smaller
And older and lower

And I'm tired of being alone with myself
And I'm tired of being with anyone else
Yeah I'm tired
Like I'm sick

None of my favorite things
Are quite right
To the mirror man
Screaming at me
In the spite of another
False start
Dirty worn out and used
Up and down
To the ground
Disavowed
So confused
All made up in the belief
That me is the same
As the eyes in the glass
But I see my eyes change

Friends are as strangers
And strangers as friends
And I feel like I'm wired in a why
Yeah my friends are as strangers
And strangers as friends
And I feel like I'm lost in a lie

And every night my world gets quicker
And lighter and shorter
And tighter and slicker
And every night
My truth gets closer to dare
Yeah every night my world gets quicker
And lighter and shorter
And tighter and slicker

And I'm sick of being alone with myself
And I'm sick of being with anyone else
Yeah I'm sick of being alone with myself
And I'm sick of being with anyone else

Yeah I'm sick
Like I'm tired?

Like I'm scared
The Perfect Boy
03:21
You and me
Are the world
She said
Nothing else is real
The two of us
Is all there is
The rest
Is just a dream

Always meant to be
I can't feel it
Like the destiny
And fate
Written in the stars
Inescapable fate
It's out of my hands
Falling into your arms

And I don't want
To get in a\?
But I would love you
To take your time
We're on the edge
Of a beautiful thing
She said
So come on
Stay here for awhile

Oh, girl
He is the one for sure
Oh, girl
He is the perfect boy

Yeah
Me and you
Are the world
I said
But not the only one
I need
The two of us
Is never all there is
That doesn't happen
For real
If it was
Meant to be us
It was meant to be now
Don't see
The sense in wasting
(Wasted?) time
If you're so sure
About this\?
Well then tonight
You're mine

And I don't want
To get obvious
But I have to be
Gone by three
We're on the edge
Of a beautiful thing
He said
So come on
Jump with me

Oh, girl
He's not the one
For sure
Oh, girl
He's not
So wonderful
Oh, girl
He's not the one
For sure
Oh, girl
He's not
The perfect boy
At all

You and me
Are the world
She said
Nothing else is real
The two of us
Is all there is
The rest
Is just a dream

And her heart
May be broken
A hundred times
But her hope?
We'll never destroy
Her heart?
The happy ever
After girl
Will never find
The perfect boy
This. Here and Now. With You
04:06
This
Here and now
With you

Oh please don't ask me who I am
Or when and where my life began
Or why I ended up like this or how
Don't ask me what I was before
If I was anything at all
Its nothing you can know
About me now

You hold my spinning head to stare
And strip me bare of memory
Your black eyes burning into me
So slow
The sounds and lights and others fade
And fall away in symmetry
Your black eyes burning hungrily
And unafraid I know

[Chorus]
Everything I ever dared forget is here
Too scared before I never let
Tonight be all I need
Everywhere I never tried to get is here
Too tired before to ever let
Tonight be all I feel
Every time I ever thought regret is here
Too caught before I never let

Tonight be all I dream
There isn't any yesterday
Tomorrow starts a day away

This
Here and now
With you

I can't believe this is coming true I'm up so close to kissing you
A breathe away from never going home
I don't remember getting here
It seems to be sometime next year
I hope you wont be
Leaving me alone?

No please don't tell me who I am
Or when and where my life began
Or why I ended up like this or how
Don't ask me what I was before
If I was anything at all
Its nothing you can know
About me now

You pull my shaking body close
To make the most of tangency
I bite your mouth so fearfully
And slow
The taste of summers yet to shine
A perfect time to change the scene
I bite your mouth in urgency
And terrified I know

[Chorus]

Tonight be all I dream
There isn't any yesterday
Tomorrow starts a day away
This here and now with you is how
Always should always be

This
Here and now
With you
Sleep When I'm Dead
03:51
[Chorus]
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said

Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
Well until then

Told me I could run the world
If I kept it clean
Told me I could be the chosen one
If I took one for the team
And it's the only way to be
Never think it isn't fair
It's a green-eyed panic (pride?)
To the edge of nowhere

Give it to the chick
And see if it ticks
Give it to the (kid?)
See if it sticks
Give it to the wonderful, wonderful me
I'll let you know on my return just how it is
with all the other boys and girls

The whole fucking other world
The way they grew to (be?)
(The love they feel about me?)

[Chorus]

Told me I could run the world
If I kept it quiet
They said I could be the man
If I took it out of sight
So in a monkey suit of (pins?)
Having fun with all your friends
How a casual (act can pull?)
All this world to pieces

Give it to the (bunny? bonnie?)
And see if she kicks
Give it to the (puppy?)
See if it sticks
Give it to the wonderful, wonderful me
I'll let you know when I return on how it is
with all the other boys and girls

The whole fucking other world
The way they feel inside
The why they never make it (by?)
The way they are inside
The why I never take the time
The way they are inside
The why I never act surprised
Yeah, just how it is

[Chorus: x2]

Well until then

I may as well be tired, I think
Before I lay me down to dream
The Scream
04:36
Yeah I've been this way before
But something down here changed
The spring sun hanging slower
Colder in the sky
And your voice sounds strange
Your voice sounds strange

Yeah I've been down here before
But this time
Something really isn't right
Summer sun hangs smaller
Paler in the sky
And your eyes are too bright
Your eyes are too bright

It's like everything I know
Is twisted out and wrong
The fall sun hanging flatter
Lower in the sky
And your smile is gone
Your smile is gone

It's like twisted out I know
Now I can't wake to
Break apart this dream
Winter sun hangs weaker
Older in the sky
And you start to scream
You start to scream

You start to scream

Scream and you scream
This is not a dream
This is how it really is
There isn't any other this
Is not a dream

Scream and you scream
Why you have this need
Why you can't be satisfied
Always want another why
You have this need

Scream and you scream
Dare me to believe
Dare me now to show I care
One last chance to make the dare
Me to believe

Scream and you scream
How we ended here
How we got from then to now
Never really followed how
We ended here
It's Over
04:17
I get up
And it's over
It's always over
It's raining and I'm burned
And it's late and you're gone
And I can barely remember
Anything I did or said
Or how I lost another week
There must be something going on...

A nagging sense of shame
I can't explain
An acrid taste of smoke and blood
And tears and drugs
And every inch of me is raw
And it's always fucking over
It's raining and I'm blind
And it's late and you're gone
I can't do this anymore

Keep getting there
It's over
It's always over
It's raining and I'm cracked
And it's late and you're out
And I can't quite remember
Anything I did or said
Or how I lost another year
There must be something coming down...

A sweetly sour unease
It's like a tease
A broken dream of guilt and fear
And spit and steel
And every piece of me in pain
And it's always fucking over
It's raining and it's cold
And it's late and you're out again

Run my head around it
Like I know I really miss her
"But I always want to do it now"
She told me in a whisper
I try so hard to place it
Wonder why I really feel it
When to send the pretty flowers
Maybe helps her to believe it

Run my tongue along it
Oh the taste is something sicker
"But you know you have to do it now"
She told me in a whisper
It only takes a second
But the second lasts forever
"Close your eyes
And let me take you down..."

And I get up
And it's over
It's always fucking over
It's raining and I'm wrecked
And it's late and you're...

No I can't remember
Anything I did or said
Or how I lost another life
I lost another life
I lost another life
I lost another life

Oh I can't do this anymore

No
I can't do this anymore
