Long Way To Go

Don't look back just decide and move on Cause you're wasting my time girl we just don't get on Don't wait here for the climate to change Picking over the bones of the love that remains I feel I've got such a long way to go We got lost on the winding road I feel its just such a long way through So if you let go of me then I'll let go of you Don't resist just relax and let go You can tend to the seed but you can't make it grow Don't invent a new way to hold on 'Cause your testing my patience you just don't belong This time I'm gone This time I'm gone I feel I've got such a long way to go We just got lost on the winding road I feel its just such a long way through So if you let go of me then I'll let go of you.....

Ballad of a Dead Man

Run little rabbit, can't break the habbit for none Shapes like a rocket and shoots like a pocket gun Every mothers son has spent a lifetime on the run One by one and two by two Our hearts beat a rhythm true Wave goodbye now baby blue You're exploding like a star into the gloom I thought I could shut you in You said 'Babay let me out' I thought that I could pick you up and roll you like a dice There's hitchhikers thumbingon the verge of the lovers highway But we just roll on by with the top down,the sun's out I'm so glad when you came along you happened to be going my way The wheels roll round and round One by one and two by two Our hearts beat a rhythm true Wave goodbye now baby blue You're exploding like a star in the room I thought I could shut you in You said "come on pull me out" I thought that I could pick you up and roll you like a dice When I'm close to you,I could feel it coming in, here they come They're coming one by one coming two by two They're coming one by one coming two by two Yeah,if I ever let you down If anything should come to bleed you dry or cut you out Don't turn me away Yeah I never meant to spin you round If anybody comes to do you harm or pin you down I'll take your place
Everyday feels the same The bomb keeps ticking 'til the routine breaks Anyway's the same for you Break another glass then I come to the rescue Paint yourself into this picture Wait there for the blast to hit you Will you come back down, head up in the clouds? Everday fills in time Four red cars in a super good red line Anyway to break on through Make another mess and I come to the rescue If you lay a finger on him He'll scream his lungs out without warning Will you come back down, head up in the clouds? First you made me stumble Then you made me fall I'm holding up the tumbling walls

Head Up In The Clouds

I was sick and tired of waiting lost You were mad at me for so much more I was bored listening to the same old chords you would complain that I was never around And we shouldn't hope, no we shouldn't hope If love is so easy then why am I stuck If life is so smooth why can't I get enough I'm still lost and running Everyday moves like a hurricane It's dragging me around no matter what I say Night time in the city streets I'm out of luck The cobblestones are dark and wet there's no-one I trust And it comes around, yeah it comes around Mr So-Easy say where have you gone I'm looking for somewhere that I can lay down my arms I'm still lost and running I'm taking my time ill let it float away Spare me no lies and you'll have nothing to say The further we slip into this rabbit hole The harder we look for a new place to go I'm still lost and running

Lost and Running

Release me from this struggle to be free Won't you take my hand Lead me to the promised land of your love Step outside of this superficial life Put your pretty lips on mine Kiss me one more time and I'm gone Who really cares? Who really knows? About these agents of despair And their thrown together prose Release me from this struggle to be free I'll break my plans To be in the gentle hands of your love When you're by my side in these superficial times Put your little hand in mine Kiss me one more time and I'm gone Who really cares? Who really knows? About these agents of despair And their thrown together prose Let them have his head He's harmless you know Watch him let you down And leave you hanging on a rope I won't be fooled by your devious ways Your ingenuine fears and your ingenuine pain I look a wreck but somehow you look fine You come to me And ask me to ease our troubled mind I won't be fooled again.....

Surviving

7

I'll stand at your shoulder I'll keep you running right Keep you running right I'll fight in your corner I'll stay by your side I'll stay by your side There's no need now to worry Our love's still here tomorrow There ain't no use in crying For what's keeping us divided Baby we're still trying, we're still trying We're too old to worry About who's wrong and who is right Is's all so by and by People need a villain Someone to pay the price It keeps them satisfied There's no need now to worry I'll still be here tomorrow There ain't no use in crying For what's keeping us divided Baby we're still trying, we're still trying Baby we're still trying Baby we're surviving

Black Tears

9

Fragile little thing go lightly on the wing Don't be put off your game If troubled wind should blow you off your way Natural love and trust Have downed their tools and struck The nation's heart it rusts is no surprise And seems so appropriate today Black tears on a red rock Fall right through and they dry up How could it fail to grab your attention Black tears on a red rock These trees bear a strange fruit Harvesting lies and poisoned blossoms of the truth There's blood on all our hands and blood on our boots And black tears on a red rock An island watch house bed A black man's lying dead An island watch house bed A black man's lying dead

Drifting Further Away

11

Don't go too deep into the flood Don't stare too long, you'll poison my love Don't shut me out, don't hold it all in Don't let my venom get under your skin 'Cause every word and every turn Every sign points to your hurt With every hour you're drifting further away Come make your peace, come find your way Come lay your wreath at the alter of change Don't lose your step, don't break the bones Don't shoulder the burden out there on your own 'Cause every word and every turn Every sign points to your hurt With every hour you're drifting further away Don't banish me then bid me home Don't tell me where I came undone Don't harbor love like it's all your own Don't linger over what you've done Don't sink underneath the weight of With you're trying to carry way too much You never should have let go You could have joined the whole show You never should have let go You never should have let go 'Cause every word and every turn Every sign points to your hurt With every hour you're drifting further away Art Direction: Debaser Photography: Andrew Morris & Debaser

Tonight my heart well it broke like glass I made a mistake that I'll never surpass I'm floating in space unattached to the world I cast off the memory of the spell of that girl Whatever I get I guess it's what I deserve I don't remember Just what made it so hard before I know you needed someone to take the fall I know you needed someone to blame it on I smashed the mirror just to look what's behind Picked through the pieces just to see what I'd find I found my heart and it broke like glass I made that mistake that I'll never surpass I let go of my grip on the past I don't remember Just what made it so hard before I know you needed someone to take the fall I know you needed someone to blame it on Hey, hey don't you look away Hey, hey I've got something to say
I never really thought to say That whenever you set free Your devil smile on me I melt It's been a long time between When you first let me in Got underneath my skin It's an echoing empty room Until your love pours in And fills it to the brim I never felt the hook go in Until you came around And broke me right back down. There's just thing that I failed to tell you I'm wishing on the same moon and stars above you We're wishing on the same moon Hear me now I'm calling out for you Pleading for your love You're falling from my view and and there's nothing I can do I'm waiting in the afternoon For the sun to sink And let the night back in It's when I feel close to you When the stars they swoon And bring their night time bloom There's just one thing that I failed to tell you I'm wishing on the same moon and stars above you We're wishing on the same moon Who's gonna pick you up? Who's gonna bend your rules? Who's gonna be your prop? Who's gonna play your fool? Nobody knows just how it feels today Nobody sees how our hearts break Who's gonna watch your back? Who's gonna reel you in? Who'll make surprise attacks? Who's gonna be there at the end? Nobody knows just how it feels today Nobody sees how our hearts break Who's gonna bring you round? Who's gonna let you sleep? Who's gonna break frown? Who's gonna fall down at your feet? Nobody knows......

I'll stand at your shoulder I'll keep you running right Keep you running right I'll fight in your corner I'll stay by your side I'll stay by your side There's no need now to worry Our love's still here tomorrow There ain't no use in crying For what's keeping us divided Baby we're still trying, we're still trying We're too old to worry About who's wrong and who is right Is's all so by and by People need a villain Someone to pay the price It keeps them satisfied There's no need now to worry I'll still be here tomorrow There ain't no use in crying For what's keeping us divided Baby we're still trying, we're still trying Baby we're still trying Baby we're surviving Fragile little thing go lightly on the wing Don't be put off your game If troubled wind should blow you off your way Natural love and trust Have downed their tools and struck The nation's heart it rusts is no surprise And seems so appropriate today Black tears on a red rock Fall right through and they dry up How could it fail to grab your attention Black tears on a red rock These trees bear a strange fruit Harvesting lies and poisoned blossoms of the truth There's blood on all our hands and blood on our boots And black tears on a red rock An island watch house bed A black man's lying dead An island watch house bed A black man's lying dead Don't go too deep into the flood Don't stare too long, you'll poison my love Don't shut me out, don't hold it all in Don't let my venom get under your skin 'Cause every word and every turn Every sign points to your hurt With every hour you're drifting further away Come make your peace, come find your way Come lay your wreath at the alter of change Don't lose your step, don't break the bones Don't shoulder the burden out there on your own 'Cause every word and every turn Every sign points to your hurt With every hour you're drifting further away Don't banish me then bid me home Don't tell me where I came undone Don't harbor love like it's all your own Don't linger over what you've done Don't sink underneath the weight of With you're trying to carry way too much You never should have let go You could have joined the whole show You never should have let go You never should have let go 'Cause every word and every turn Every sign points to your hurt With every hour you're drifting further away Photography: Andrew Morris & Debaser
