there's a demon of a heart reachin’ out from the inside such a tempting little heart sometimes it isn’t easy to decide   i got a devil of a soul calling out from within me should the devil take control gimme strength enough to break free   [Chorus] only love, only love can see us through in this state of mind nothing's true just a kiss, a kiss that's forever in this state of mind together...

round and round hold me close within your circle changing course turning slow, an endless cycle faster now all this movement causing friction endlessly away from here, can you feel the motion? just like the shooting stars you leave behind tonight burning quietly through all the melodies, heaven's bodies collide within your gravity echoing across your mind, this passion spinning don't deny that voice inside is massive energy just like the shooting stars you leave behind tonight burning quietly through all the melodies, heaven's bodies collide within your gravity face to face inside your eyes i'm always falling hand in hand forever pulling altogether

clean dress and a bit of indifference ask me a question paralyzed by disguise walk with your feet in deep if I end the day and nothing's done can I still be thankful sleepwalk through the day drink two cups and make it through I'm half asleep a daydream falling and I'm free Take a breath there now hold the light and see and see Shine your shoes don't know what the day holds give me an answer sleepwalk through the day drink two cups and make it through

oh my heaven!  please forgive me because i have cheated on someone from somewhere i got what i wanted just to have my nothing- now, my heaven! if you'd only show me the way i am needed entangled so tightly i was just leaving 'cause nobody would miss me now these are thoughts you wear upon your sleeve that fits so easy when is the time to go? when does it all begin to please me? what happens next happens next, happens next simple human are you with me? when hist'ry's repeated there's no one around here all things look faded but don’t let that bring you down   these are thoughts you wear.. don't try to let it in don't try just let it in don't try oh my darlin' did i say i'm sorry? you wouldn't believe me that it was all empty now it's just stupid who wouldn't want to blame you now?

misery loves company and the night goes on forever the world slips by on broken wings that couldn't stand the pressure with dreams of what this life might be with a different set of choices and everyday could be the same if it wasn't for all the voices   you can leave me in ruin but don't leave without my kiss goodbye   misery waits patiently and the night goes on forever with every step some violence brings a tiny bit of pleasure she doesn't care for simple things and delicate excuses despite what the mind refuses   heavy is this heart of mine and i wanna feel it all heavy are these hands of mine and i wanna tear it all appart heavy is this heart of mine and i wanna touch it all heavy is this head of mine and the night keeps rolling right along...

everyone waits for their wrong turn into a slow burn a bright flash fades beneath the dirt shadows gone decay unknown ashes moan we come together and leave alone i'll cross oceans for you to drink you in today waiting only drifts away we all unfold in cold and light sparks in flight we shape our time and then subside voices wane though blood is sown seed and grown we come together and leave alone i'll cross oceans for you to drink you in today waiting only drifts away this day this hour this minute this moment this day this hour this minute this moment i'll cross oceans for you to drink you in today waiting only drifts away

gimme a sign, show me a sign move among the living tonight gimme a sign, show me a sign dragged out in the open tonight electrical phenomenon flow through me calling out in the dark electrical phenomenon flow through me moving corner of my eye i think i know when i'm hearing things i think i'd know when i have heard enough i think i know when i'm seeing things just below the noise sound like a warning "i do believe that we are in danger send me assistance do me a favor i don't believe that things could get stranger than what they've become.." gimme a sound, beautiful sound with all sorts of feeling tonight gimme a sound, some kind of sound is there someone with us tonight electrical phenomenon flow through me breathing out in the dark electrical phenomenon flow through me fading color in the night

sixty minutes is all it takes to burn up this lonely hour fourty hours is such long time to think about cars and crashing   I know I'm living, know I'm living Living under hour glass Living under hour glass Take me to the highest mountain Take me above the trees Take me where the sky begins Where people say the Clouds are born   twenty four hours is what it takes to get yourself through to-morrow thirty days is quite a while to cry about computers stalling these dreams are what reality wants to forget will i be myself today or something i regret   sixty seconds is all it takes to feel your heart wide open thirty minutes and moment to breathe and think about cars and crashing

you took my voice and hid it stripped away my choice deafness so convenient eating all my noise eating all my noise can you hear me do you fear me now i have no place for peace when life is stuck on mute and there's no heart's release beating down the truth beating down the truth can you hear me do you fear me now sometimes they just don't listen sometimes they just don't listen can you hear me do you fear me can you hear me do you fear me now

It is written in the sins of the generations can we journey the path not taken etched in the stars and the constellations enclosed by a fate that can be shaken Ten thousand sorrows swim through the years overcome these tears and make a new tomorrow These footsteps that we're stepping in were made before the world could spin and I keep stepping over pavement, cracks and four leaf clover til these steps are mine Plunge in plenty swim through the tears overcome these fears that want to disconnect me These footsteps that we're stepping in were made before the world could spin and I keep stepping over pavement, cracks and four leaf clover til these steps are mine

Slow burn collective she walk in a dream a reverie reap the almighty crime of priority You can go home now You'll be safe and sound Home Take a look around Am I mostly dead or slightly alive am I mostly dead or barely alive Just listen flapping of wings gossamer petals and beautiful things I close my eyes come along for just a little while You can go home now you'll be safe and sound home take a look around am I mostly dead or slightly alive am I mostly dead or barely alive Luminous waves wash over me fall down and rise endless days go quietly

starting clean the clearest eyes that haven't seen a thing you and me our hearts and minds will never be so free the road goes on from here my friend we'll never see this place again one more trip 'round the bend always closer to the end in our prime do we ever feel it's our time to shine the road goes on from here my friend we'll never see this place again one more trip 'round the bend always closer to the end looking back the way we came does it ever look the same the road goes on from here my friend we'll never see this place again one more trip 'round the bend always closer to the end the end
