All Fall Down

one more picture in your book, laid on on the ground while the whole world shook,
you're make-up's runnin' and your hair's a mess but you still look cute in that dirty old dress,
let's sit down by the track and wait in the dark for the train to pass,
you thought you were comin' home now you shake as the wind blows through your bones,

don't question what you know, gotta let it come and let it go,
wanna be the best in town, gotta keep on movin till we all fall down

it's a cold sun that shines as we all fall down, it's a cold sun..

let's sit down by the track and wait in the dark for the train to pass,
you thought you were comin' home now you shake as the wind blows through your bones,

it's a cold sun that shines as we all fall down, it's a cold sun..

Roll The Dice

take your name tags off and get born
make you sweat just a little bit more
say hello to the ghosts at your door

don't ask why it is, it just is
it took far too long to find this
now you're aiming for something you missed

live your life then roll it away
take a chance every time you play
you'll be happy on monday

you don't need to decide, roll the dice

when there's just one road you can't choose
when there's nothing to win you can't lose
now we're all just slinging the blues
yeah we're all just slinging the blues

don't give it away...

you don't need to decide, roll the dice

make you sweat just a little bit more..

Revolution

surrounded by the girls and boys, i cancel the noise, i cancel the noise,
and i've never seen this place but i'm sure i've been here before, i've been here before
with ten thousand voices as one, we reach for the sun, we reach for the sun,
you take it then you give it away, in love for a day, in love for a day, in love for a day

it's a chance to break away,
it's not a revolution but it's changin everything, yeah it's changin everything..

can we find a way to drag it all on, we're here and we're gone, we're here and we're gone,
in another time, another place, remember the day, remember the day,
with ten thousand voices as one, we reach for the sun, we reach for the sun,
and you never caught the name of the rose,
now you'll never know, now you'll never know, now you'll never know..

it's a chance to break away,
it's not a revolution but it's changin everything, yeah it's changin everything..

and when this day is past, and all our dreams are cast like shadows in the sun,
this will be the one, this will be the one..

it's a chance to break away,
it's not a revolution but it's changin everything, yeah it's changin everything..

We Come & Go

and as the sun cracks on the fields we talk of all the plans we made and all the things we'll be,
the ones we wished away could have been the best days of our lives,

we come and go, we are..

the last bell rings it's time to go,
'i'll see you soon' but we all know this is the last time,
and when we look back all we'll see is the best, is the worst, and nothing in between,
as we all move on , we all move on.

we come and go, we come and go, we are.

we come, we come..

Before Long

next time i'll change all the rules,
i'll sharpen my teeth and my tongue,
cos now i know nothing's forever,
no it all turns to shit before long,

i fell for you in an instant,
and i thought that would always be there,
but we said our goodbyes from a distance,
and the last words still hang in the air,
you said it's a sin for all seasons,
well it's been a cold winter this year,
but if you gave me one more good reason,
i'd still find a place for you here,

next time i'm changin' the rules,
and i'll sharpen my teeth and my tongue,
cos now i know nothing's forever,
no it all turns to shit before long,

so is this our brand new beginning,
our better our bigger new day?
or is this the one we'll look back on-
'when we threw all the good bits away...?

Dustpipe

the devil within controls the play without,
tellin' me ignorance is bliss,
lockin' the gates to chase the hours away,
these are the ones that we're gonna miss,

washin' it all away..

get you a drink i think it'd do you good,
don't need a reason to celebrate,
you can be sure we're not the only ones,
kickin' a hole in another day..

washin' it all away,
washin' it all away..

On Mondays

just another taste and i'll leave it alone..

these howling winds will be the life of me,
and breathing all the faith i need,
i'm losing site of what i always thought would be the place i'd never leave,
there's something creeping through the cold outside
something brewing in the calm,
i never noticed till the lights went down,
this place looks crooked in the sun,

so grab your souls let's run away,
we should be happier than this,
we should be happier on mondays,
the grass is growin round your feet, my seratonin's blown and i'm weak,
we should be happier on mondays

the lock on the door begins to twist,
i know that i should not go out tonight,
but it's not easy to resist

now it's time to cut the cord,
there's nothing here for us,
there's nothing here for us no more

so grab your souls let's run away,
we should be happier than this,
we should be happier on mondays,
the grass is growin round your feet, my seratonin's blown and i'm weak,
we should be happier on mondays, on mondays

give me one more taste and i'll go home..

Pretty Dreams

there's a hundred miles to go,
do you remember what we're runnin' for?
and now we cut back through the night like there's no-one else alive,
shiny eyes and pretty dreams,

round in circles, blown in the wind,
riding the ripples of some yesterday,
and now however close we seem, there's still an ocean in between,
only the dark knows where we are..

blurring headlights flash on by,
is this the way it's always meant to be?
and now we all melt into one and know the best is yet to come,
i am you and we are alive, we are alive!

Something New

Lookin' for somethin' new,
cos everything you love is bad for you,
tryin' to break your mould, before you lose all control.. i know

i wanna drive with you, but there's nowhere left to drive to,
it's obvious to me, you're not thinkin clearly my love..

you've seen the signs and ripped them down,
you need to get your feet back on the ground,
you've seen the signs and ripped them down,
you need to get your feet back on the ground,
before you win

lookin' for somethin' new,
as everythin' slides away from you,
maybe now you'll see you've had it all too easy - for too long.

you've seen the signs and ripped them down,
you need to get your feet back on the ground,
you've seen the signs and ripped them down,
you need to get your feet back on the ground,
before you win

Shake

slide, slide into the mornin'
one more, drag me to the edge,
shake, shake it till it crumbles,
live, live until you die,
ever, ever is it so long?
'oh what a marvelous remark..'

slow down, what's the use in runnin,
old town, you're pissin in the wind,

so we sit around and wonder,
are we here for another reason?
can you smell the sounds in summer?
can you feel it in the air? yeah

Only A Moment

once she squeaked into the room, now she's clickin' down the street,
downtown lights that drew her in show a flicker on her face,
he wears stripes and never checks on the weather or his watch,
underneath the books unread there's a picture that he keeps

come on, it's only a moment..
come on, it's only a moment..

though it felt like standin' still they were closer every day,
smiles nd laughter through the dark, like a future he can't see
could they be the last ones left, coughin' up for one last ride,
tell him every truth you know and he'll never believe you

come on, it's only a moment..
come on, it's only a moment..

one hand gives while the other takes,
the loneliest bed is the one he makes,
time could save him but he don't learn
and the very last bridge is the one that he just burned.

Remarkable Things

there's something wrong with the picture,
don't move the way it should,
and if no-one speaks of remarkable things,
how will anyone know they happened at all.. how will anybody know?

you want the world to remember the way it really felt,
leave nothin to chance, they'll repaint your history
then how will anybody know what happened at all?

don't let it slip away, you're a long time dead..

how will anybody know, at all?

don't let it slip away, you're a long time dead..
