Track Name: ps...
An anthem for the brave
Asylum for the bleeding
A silence for the day
A science for the feeding
I watch you and I stray
I watch you feel the needing
I watch you and I wait
I watch you feign no feeling

But every severed soul I’m running to
Reminds me of the twenty million ways they aren’t like you
Terrified and tongue tied when they try to tell
Me just to get away, forget about you
But there’s only half of me left, an empty shell
Knowing all the time the rest of me is you

Obsession for the brave
My passion plays the mourner
Too lost in you to learn
Too scared to turn a corner
I watch you and I freeze
I watch you and you smoulder
I watch you and we burn
I watch as you grow colder

But time I try to separate
Life and love and twenty million different thoughts of you
Beautiful and burning, hopeless and alone
I laugh to think we ever came to this
Pure suggestion, tearing us apart, from me from you
Everything we played for, breaking all the rules

Convince myself it’s so much better than before
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
I knew you wanted more than you could sacrifice
It’s no surprise
It’s no surprise

And time and time again
The song re-writes itself
Never know, show or tell
As rhyme and pride betrays
This circus never ends
Not for me, you or them

And time and time again
The song re-writes itself
Never know, show or tell
As rhyme and pride betrays
This circus never ends
Not for me, you or them

An anthem for the brave
Asylum for the fleeing
An answer for the days
Of open hand, unheeding

But every vain attempt to reconcile
I can’t hate you, time and again God knows I’ve tried
So I turn it on myself
To try to hide the pain

And time and time again
The song re-writes itself
Never know, show or tell
As rhyme and pride betrays
This circus never ends
Not for me, or you.
Track Name: Better Than Me
If I could turn you round

If I could turn you round

But I don’t know what I’ve been saying
I don’t think this soul’s worth saving
I could turn you round

If you could steal this contemplation
The highs, the lows, the expectation

Do we want to do this anyway?
 
If I should ever stray
If I should run away from you
Would you come and find me, save me from myself?

If you could see me through
If you could come to choose a love for me
Beyond all the things you see, better than me

If I could turn you round 
                           
If I could turn you round
 
If I could turn you round

You’d recognise this fallen angel
Would you feel your heart in danger?

I could turn you round

I’d turn up now and sing this song
Turn you round and turn you on
But do you want to do this anyway?
 

If I should ever stray
If I should run away from you
Would you come and find me, save me from myself?

If you could see me through
If you could come to choose a love for me
Beyond all the things you see, better than me

If I could turn you round                           

If I could turn you round                  

If I could turn you round         
(Better than me…)
 

If I could turn you round

I could beg and steal and borrow
Time until there’s no tomorrow

I could turn you round

Morning seems so far away
I struggle for the words to say
Do you want to do this, anyway?

If I should ever stray
If I should run away from you
Would you come and find me, save me from myself?

If you could see me through
If you could come to choose a love for me
Beyond all the things you see, yeah…
 

Would you come and find me, save me from myself?

If you could see me through
If you could come to choose a love for me
Beyond all the things you see, better than me

If I could turn you round                                

If I could turn you round                            

If I could turn you round                               

If I could turn you round                               
(Better than me…)
Track Name: La Petite Mort Synphonique
Oil on water, clad in chrome on chrome
Bound below a silver neon tone
Silver smooth anticipation designs
Echo signals down a chromium spine

Curves cascade in waterfalls of oil
Chemicals are rising to a boil
Tender touch to steel a steal caress
Silver skin consumes a mercury kiss

Touch – with slow reaction
Speeding up – with random access
Sensation rises to petite mort - it’s like suicide – ow wow wow
Awake the soul inside

Instrumental

Oil and water flows in chrome and chrome
Self-aware and breathing on our own
Fingertips electric platinum touch
Chlorine cold and burning nearly as much
Take this pleasure, turn it over as pain
You can give it over and over again
Yeah…
Track Name: Proxima
Slowly drifting to the point of no return
Floating in my pod approaching final burn
Silver black like diamonds wheeling overhead
On the edge of darkness everything is dead

Take a look at me now, reckon somehow
That I want you all over again
That I want you all over again
That I want you all over
I want you all over
I want you all over again

Solar winds deceive me whispering your name
Memories betray me, did and didn’t say
Just deploy the sails and leave it all behind
Set a course for all infinity can find

Take a look at me now, reckon somehow
That I want you all over again
That I want you all over again
That I want you all over
I want you all over
I want you all over again


(It’s) too vast to comprehend
Leave it all behind
Or as before
Am I denied
Just a dominated slave as I fall into the night?

A stare out at the astral void
As solar systems subdivide
I look into the depths of space
I see your face
See your eyes
And I love you all over again
Lock controls to forward, onward into night
Destiny awaits in supernatural light
Memories sustain me, every kindness every love
Nights of future-gone make peace with darkened stars above

At the end, there’s just the memory of your eyes
Sailing to forever, depth beyond design
What was never and what is forever won
Perfect love eternal, brighter than the sun…
