Carbon Monoxide

If you happen to walk by and see
The door is cracked
Don't bother looking
My letters are on the kitchen table
For you to read
I'm sorry i'm not the daughter you needed to me to be

Now i dream
Carbon monoxide
Set me free
Carbon monoxide
Window to eternity
Please forgive me

I want to dance with you again
The only thing keeping us apart is my skin
I'll just cut and set myself free
If that's the only way you can be with me

Now i dream
Carbon monoxide
Set me free
Carbon monoxide
Window to eternity
Please forgive me

Your body's been dead since September
But i still remember
My blood whispers your name
My spirit waits for you to take me away

I don't want to live one more day
Nothing left inside me is sane

Carbon Monoxide
Carbon Monoxide
Forgive me

Invisible Catastrophe

Eternally contained
Within four walls of stained glass
Windows remains
An artificial sacrifice
To idolize the ways
Of a life in which was meant
To lift the burdens we crave
An invisible catastrophe
Involuntary plague
The fear is in fine print
Infectious parade
Invested in those
In over ten thousand ways
A path left unpaved
Self-inflicted debt paid
Through an invisible catastrophe

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

We're moving through life
Where a man with no sight
Could justifiably deny
That it's he who's gone blind
Where self-loathing is learned
And love is a crime
Chained to the pages we turn
We're reminded
Accept is the view
As our guilt becomes virtue
Our conscience confused
I'm sorry but who's failed who?
Choose me or lose
You're abusing the broken
Through promise but proof
Is the invisible catastrophe

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

Song For Whoever

I love you from the bottom of my pencil case
I love you in the songs I write and sing
Love you because you put me in my rightful place
And I love the PRS cheques that you bring

Cheap, never cheap
I'll sing you songs till you're asleep
When you've gone upstairs I'll creep
And write it all down, down, down, down

Oh Shirley, oh Deborah, oh Julie, oh Jane
I wrote so many songs about you I forget your name
(I forget your name)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I forget your name)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I forget your name)

I love your from the bottom of my pencil case
I love the way you never ask me why
I love to write about each wrinkle on your face
And I love you till my fountain pen runs dry

Deep, so deep
The number one I hope to reap
Depends upon the tears you weep
So cry, lovely, cry
Cry, cry, cry...

Oh Cathy, oh Alison, oh Phillipa, oh Sue
You made me so much money I wrote this song for you
(I wrote this song for you)

Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I wrote this song for you)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(For you)

Oh Cathy, oh Alison, oh Phillipa, oh Sue
You made me so much money I wrote this song for you
(I wrote this song for you)

Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I wrote this song for you)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(For you, for you, for you, I wrote this song for you)
(I wrote this song for you)

Catch Me On Fire

One who needs me, are you not?
One who's living on borrowed thoughts
How you see me?
How you want force-feed
The feeling that keeps you warm?
Your words have paid their dues
But we'll leave the light on
We'll celebrate your feud
By feeding the lion

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

One who's breathing, are you not?
Consciously beating your ruthless heart
Furnished feelings infect us all
Thus concealing just who we are
Lose some and some may lose
But they'll leave the light on
They feed off you
As you keep feeding the lion

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

All I wanted was a little anonymity
Not the pedestal you needed to control me
Then place the burden on coercive ambiguity
And nominate the ghost you made
To designate an enemy

All you want is to control me (x8)

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

Hold On

Abandon fear and flaws exposed
Equipped with indefinite highs and 'let go's
Unclear, still in control
Steady as we fall
Thoughts escape the prison skull
Freedom clears a path to follow
We wait, but will we go
And swallow what we're told?

A future of limits and incapabilities
Left to believe all there has been is everything
Separate are dreams to distinguish reality
Never pass up on a chance we

Hold on
Hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on
You hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on

Shake your fear, defend your soul
Regret is a measurement defined by ego
Still here, but soon we go
Our story left untold
Guilt and fear, paid in full
Drown out the sound or continue the cycle
We wait but will we go
And swallow what we're told?

A future of limits and incapabilities
Left to believe all there has been is everything
Separate are dreams to distinguish reality
Never pass up on a chance we

Hold on
Hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on
You hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on

In a world where everything you've seen
Has no room for doubt, no questioning
Separate the pain from identity

Hold on
Hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on
You hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on

The Forgiver

The truth is this crucifix holds you
You don't hold it
Shown like a picture
This fixture sells scripture
To self-conscious sinners
Through subconscious whispers
So strip the beginners
Their right to see clearer and

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

The truth is this recklessness
Loving on purpose shit
Adds to the conflict
This circus of lifelessness
Holding and pleading
Disastrously breeding
The signs with old theories
Your egos are steering and

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

Growth defeating, thoughtless healing
Stealing from the hands you're feeding
Seeing, breathing, broken meaning
Sickening the chance we need
Defining reasons based on feelings
Passed down from a book you're reading
Surely we cannot believe
The past creates the now we're breathing
Growth defeating, thoughtless healing
Stealing from the hands you're feeding
Future bleeding, broken meaning
Sickening the chance we need and

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

The World As Broken

You are the venomous
Empty brilliance
I am upset with what I've become
I am defenseless, hardly broken
I am irrelevant with what I have done
What have I done?

Etched in skin like scars I'm left with
Swept beneath my sin
Just to keep the surface from caving in
Chased by the end of a book not written
Yet somehow I'm condemned
Defeat the fire or be the fire within

Take, take
Or be the one who gave in
Break, break
Or be the one who lives
Wait, wait
And leave the world as broken
To justify the end

You're free to give in but
Damned if you dare to
Taught to forgive
While the hate lies within you
Feel trapped in your skin
You can't comprehend
He who preaches through silence
Denies us our privilege

Caged in glass
My chaos trapped
And wrapped inside my skin
Paint my past with cold dead hands
Convince me who I am

Take, take
Or be the one who gave in
Break, break
Or be the one who lives
Wait, wait
And leave the world as broken
To justify the end

You're free to give in but
Damned if you dare to
Taught to forgive
As the hate lies within you
Feel trapped in your skin
You can't comprehend
He who preaches through silence
Denies us our privilege

Right to defend
Our doubts in regard to
Who we should be
When the answers involves you
The beat in my chest is
The absence I've turned to
Losing is closure
If I'm who designed you

I Engineer

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered this game

Who do you think you fool when you talk about us?
Why do you walk on glass when you know it cuts?
There must be a reason why
You put my life in overdrive
I'm up to here with push and shove
From here on in, I've had enough!

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered this game

I'll leave it all behind in a cloud of dust
There's an even chance I'll shine or rust
On my own I've got the time
There's a light ahead at the end of the line
Seeing you leaves me no doubt
I'll take the wheel from here on out

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered this game

On my own I've got the time
There's a light ahead at the end of the line
Seeing you leaves me no doubt
I'll take the wheel from here on out

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered...

My Past

They think they know me, they didn't even meet me yet
I can't believe how ignorant all these people get
He bought his house with drug money, he's in debt (heh)
He's got a new girl - I wonder if he beats her yet (come on)
I'm sittin' back like 'why am I even getting mad?
It's the first non-abusive relationship I've had.'
And yeah I'm proud of it, turned into a father
A dad, produced a beautiful daughter, inspired to produce tracks
Now I'm back, but where exactly did I even go?
Rarely even leave the city, barely even leave my home
All these fucken big shots, the eagle's gotta go
Cause physically stay in place, but spiritually I roam
I did some soul searching (yep)
Yeah I found myself (yep)
I'm not the old person who was always down and out, found some help (aww)
Surround myself with positive people, but they might as well be negative
All my past negligence set precedence

Nobody's giving me a break cause of my past mistakes
I know my reputation looks bad (looks bad)
But you gotta believe me, my life ain't been easy
Why you gotta treat me like that (like that)?
Cause I swear I got a big heart, and I just want a fresh start
I'm trying to get my life on the right track (right track)
Forget what I once was, man, trying to grow up
Quit judging me because of my past (my past)

Every time I start new, people start to notice and don't look at the change
They look back on mistakes
And every single time that I start to get something good going
Someone's right there to throw my fucking past in my face
Oh you used to be that, yeah you used to do this. Ain't you that rapper guy that..
(Yeah that's me)
...who must have convinced, so prove to whom to prove to you that the new me is formed
Reborn -- not sixteen anymore! (Ugh!)
Almost twenty-four, ain't even twenty-one no more
I don't chill with those losers, and I ain't fuckin' that whore
The me who wants to, ain't the one anymore
But keep talking about me, cause man it's fun to ignore (hah)
Only time it really bugs me is when I'm having a bad day
When I feel negative, so I think of it that way
Get all deep in thought, then I realise the facts (oh yeah)
Man I need you to yap -- it's the reason I rap

Nobody's giving me a break cause of my past mistakes
I know my reputation looks bad (looks bad)
But you gotta believe me, my life ain't been easy
Why you gotta treat me like that (like that)?
Cause I swear I got a big heart, and I just want a fresh start
I'm trying to get my life on the right track (right track)
Forget what I once was, man, trying to grow up
Quit judging me because of my past (my past)

Gotta counsel these people
They don't understand that I've become a man (they're all confused)
Yeah I've done evil, but I did the crime, did the time and I've (paid all my dues)
Man you think it's that simple (uhh), like wiping your ass, or picking a pimple (nah)
It isn't that simple, it isn't that easy (nope)
Cause you gotta be brave to change, cause these people's brains remain the same
Gotta make 'em believe (yeah, yeah)!
If you accomplish that feat, what a thing you achieve
Got to the point, with me, I made it my dream
Had to change my reputation, and not just for me
But for my baby girl, carrying my Spratt name, shares with me my last name
Now I'm looking at fame like it's life
Don't have it, but don't want it (nah)
Just wanna be a father. All I want is my daughter
[I DON'T WANNA BE BOTHERED, BUT]

Nobody's giving me a break cause of my past mistakes
I know my reputation looks bad (looks bad)
But you gotta believe me, my life ain't been easy
Why you gotta treat me like that (like that)?
Cause I swear I got a big heart, and I just want a fresh start
I'm trying to get my life on the right track (right track)
Forget what I once was, man, trying to grow up
Quit judging me because of my past (my past)

Just Once

Dear father,
Can you clarify this fiction you speak with?
The blind have organized
Confusing the sides
The language is different
The corporation found a way
To monetize the inscription
Convinced an afterlife
It's cursed with the burden
To kill for admission

If no one defines
Where the boundaries lie
It's no wonder why
We're desensitized
Why are you lost for words?
And why can you just not respond
Or need time to revise your old version of lies?
We just need you to show up on time
Just once!
Just once!

It seems the races have decided
To take pride in their difference
Then fight with conviction
Determined the color of man
Defines their intentions
Just clarify!
Just one reply!
Just one more time!
Fucking pick a side!

If no one defines
Where the boundaries lie
It's no wonder why
We're desensitized
Why are you lost for words?
And why can you just not respond
Or need time to revise your old version of lies?
We just need you to show up on time
Just once!
Just once!

We scream when it's our time to listen
Our flaws by our own definition
Some die from self-righteous indifference
With the book in their hand
Not the hand of their children

Why are you lost for words?
And why can you just not respond
Or need time to revise your old version of lies?
We just need you to show up on time
Just once!
Just once!
Just once!
Just once!

Crunch Time

Shivers - I just can’t believe it
Love has got a meaning
Ever since we met m-met – m-met up
Strangers, only without knowing
Feelings keep on growing
Make me wanna love ya - love ya right there
What you give - what you give – What you give to me
Is what I love – what I love - what I love to see
So here we are - here we are -
There’s no stoppin’ this

I can hear you – and what ur gonna say
I wanna feel you in every kinda way
Baby it’s Crunch Time, Crunch Time, Crunch Time
Baby it’s Crunch Time, Crunch Time, Crunch Time
We got it good to go there’s no wastin’ time
Write it from the heart never wastin’ lines
Cos it ‘s Crunch Time Crunch Time, Crunch Time
Baby it’s Crunch Time

Gold is not what you’re in love with
Not a dime a dozen
Baby you’re my diam-diam-diamond
I know that we have both been places
Lovers, hearts & faces
But please don’t hold this back

To all the girls around the world
Let me hear you say Weejoow
To all my fellows round the world
Let me hear you say Weejoow
If you know what I’m talking about
Raise your hands and sing it loud
To all my peeps around the world
Let me hear you say Weejoow
'cause you know it is

Still I Remain

The truth distracted by belief
(Distracted by what you're supposed to be)
The fear consumes your mind
Your heart no longer breathes

I am not your price to pay
I am a ghost before I'm your slave
A stitch in the wound
That won't go away
Still I remain

Your thoughts influenced by your speech
(Distracted by what you're supposed to be)
So far from who you are
So desperate, so unique

I am not your price to pay
I am a ghost before I'm your slave
A stitch in the wound
That won't go away
Still I remain

Found when life has lost its way
I'm your second chance to escape
A stitch in the wound
That won't go away
Still I remain

We're judged by all that makes us real
Then left to search for life
Except the one we feel
We feel, the one we feel
The one we feel

I am not your price to pay
I am a ghost before I'm your slave
A stitch in the wound
That won't go away
Still I remain

Found when life has lost its way
I'm your second chance to escape
A stitch in the wound
That won't go away
Still I remain

Diamond Girl

I got caught up I was solo
Promised I would guard my heart
Then you showed up told my heart open up
And walked right through the door

Never saw you coming
Cupid struck me hard
Threw away my card
Babygirl I wanna just frame this
Can’t picture us apart
Thought I was too wild to tame

When the chips fall down
Girl you pick me up
You always know what to say
And when I’m down and stuck
running out of luck
Baby ur my lottery

Ur shinging like a diamond girl
P-P-Priceless P-P-Priceless
Ur shinging like a diamond girl
P-P-Priceless
In the dark your light's so bright

So tell me girl can I pick u up
(Just name a time and place) and I will be there
We can hang at the mall or just watch a movie
whatever girl I don't really care
As long as you are with me
cuz when you're by my side
Everything's so right
U don't have to speak
We already know this
love is meant to be
and you're exactly what I need 'cause baby

All I need is u baby u are the only one I want in my life
and all I'm dreaming of is we being together forever till the end of time
So girl whatever happens I know we will stand strong
'cause we will stick together never going wrong
You just keep on shining
'cause I can't get enough
You're my precious Diamond,
Diamond in the rough
So just keep on shining....

When the chips fall down
Girl you pick me up
You always know what to say
And when I’m down and stuck
running out of luck
Baby ur my lottery

Ur shinging like a diamond girl
P-P-Priceless P-P-Priceless
Ur shinging like a diamond girl
P-P-Priceless
In the dark your light's so bright
Baby girl you shine ...

La vie populaire

J'aime la simplicité
Des journées d'été
Ces petits moments superbes
Déjeuners sur l'herbe

J'aime les cafés en hiver
Passer boire un verre
Attraper la chance aux cartes
Juste avant qu'elle parte

On est tous les mêmes
Dans cette histoire
Qui finit dans l'noir
Je dis : il n'est même
Pas sûr qu'on se ressemble
On est bien ensemble

Refrain :
        La vie, la vie populaire
        C'est toute ma vie passagère
        La vie, la vie populaire
        J'ai envi qu'elle n'soit jamais finie

        La vie, la vie populaire
        C'était la vie de ma mère
        Et celle du père de mon père
        Rien à faire, c'est ma vie sur la Terre

J'aime la musique toute nue
Les bals dans la rue
Les amours qui durent un soir
Les danses inconnues

J'aime quand à la fin des matchs
On plaisante, on tchatche
Et quand on raconte nos drames
À nos saintes femmes

On est tous les mêmes
Dans cette histoire
Qui finit dans l'noir
Je dis : il n'est même
Pas sûr qu'on se ressemble
On est bien ensemble

        {Refrain}

J'aime les copains et les blagues
Certaines un peu vagues
Comme les chagrins qu'on partage
À n'importe quel âge

J'aime les familles qui se quittent
On rit, on s'embrasse
On se dit 'Revenez vite
Parce que la vie passe'

On est tous les mêmes
Dans cette histoire
Qui finit dans l'noir
Je dis : il n'est même
Pas sûr qu'on se ressemble
On est bien ensemble

        {Refrain}

Toi, la mer immense

Toi, la mer immense
Tu ne m'as pas dit
Que tu as la chance
De voir mon pays

Depuis mon absence
Où en est la vie ?
Est-ce du silence
Ou bien de l'oubli ?

Toi, la mer immense
Porte moi l'écho
Des notes grinçantes
De mon vieux piano

Les oiseaux vont-ils toujours
Chercher les bateaux ?
Ma maison va-t-elle toujours
Le soir se regarder dans l'eau ?

Toi, la mer immense
Si tu vas là-bas
Porte à mon enfance
Un peu de ma voix

Depuis mon absence
J'ai eu d'autres joies
Pourtant quand j'y pense
Je pleure bien des fois

On a beau se réfugier
Dans un autre port
On revit par nos pensées
Longtemps ce que l'on croyait mort

Toi, la mer immense
Tu ne m'as pas dit
Que ton cœur balance
Entre deux pays

Pourquoi viens-tu si tard ?

Pourquoi viens-tu si tard ?
La vie m'a déjà brisé, roulé, traîné
Comme une algue sur la plage abandonnée
Que l'on dispute à la rive

Pourquoi viens-tu si tard ?
Maintenant que les espoirs de mes vingt ans
Et les mensonges dorés que j'aimais tant
Sont partis à la dérive

Non, tu ne comprends pas, ni toi, ni personne
Tout ce que tu fais pour moi
Colombe aussi, la joie me donne
Des millions de joies

Pourquoi viens-tu si tard ?
Pourquoi faut-il que ta main prenne ma main
Et m'oblige à retrouver sur tes chemins
La force et le goût de vivre ?

Tu ne peux pas savoir le feu qui m'emporte
Quand je me brûle à ton cœur
Quand j'oublie le nom de mes amours mortes
Quand je n'ai plus peur

Pourquoi viens-tu si tard ?
Me jurer que le soleil va se lever
Que les ombres du malheur vont s'effacer
Et qu'il n'est peut-être pas, non pas, trop tard

Nous, les adolescents

Nous, les adolescents
Avec nos joies et nos problèmes
Nous déroutons ceux qui nous aiment
Et pourtant on les aime tant

Nous, les adolescents
On veut toujours nous mettre en garde
Mais notre destin nous regarde
Chacun doit risquer son printemps

Mes parents m'aiment plus qu'eux-mêmes
Et ils me l'ont souvent prouvé
Si pour eux je reste le même
Je grandis pourtant chaque année

Ne tremblez pas pour votre enfant
Qui brûle d'essayer ses ailes
Au rang des passions éternelles
C'est le sort des adolescents

Nous, les adolescents
Chaque jour l'amour qui nous guette
Mets du tangage dans nos têtes
Et des orties à fleur de sang

Nous, les adolescents
Nous dénions ceux qui sont trop sages
Car la vraie sagesse à notre âge
C'est bien de s'aimer follement

On ne grandit jamais sans larmes
Mais je voudrais tant vous donner
Malgré vos pleurs, malgré vos armes
Une part de ma vérité

Pour effacer la croix des ans
Partager l'amour qui m'enivre
Retrouvez donc la joie de vivre
Dans le cœur des adolescents

Dans le cœur des adolescents
Dans le cœur des adolescents ...

Si je pouvais ne plus t'aimer 

Si je pouvais ne plus t'aimer
Si mon cœur n'était pas enfermé
Entre tes doigts
Si je n'étais pas prête à lâchement
Tout te pardonner

S'il m'était donné de vivre ou de dormir
Sans plus penser à toi
Si je n'étais plus soudain
Celle dont tu fais un pantin
Si je pouvais te fuir
Ou simplement te trahir
Au moins

Je n'aurais plus ce poids
Ce poids qui me fait mal
Au point de m'étouffer
Je serais délivrée
Si je pouvais ne plus t'aimer
~ ~ ~
Désormais je le sais
Il ne faut se livrer
Jamais
Celui qui aime trop
A bien souvent le cœur gros
C'est vrai

Ne joue pas au plus fort
Tout peut changer encore
Mon cœur peut se lasser
N'as-tu jamais pensé
Que je pourrais ne plus t'aimer ?

L'escale portugaise

L'escale fait sécher ses blancheurs aux terrasses
Où le vent s'évertue,
Les maisons roses au soleil qui les enlace
Sentent l’algue et la rue.

Les femmes de la mer, des paniers de poissons
Irisés sur la tête,
Exposent au soleil bruyant de la saison
La sous-marine fête.

Le feuillage strident a débordé le vert
Sous la crue de lumière,
Les roses prisonnières
Ont fait irruption par les grilles de fer.

Le plaisir matinal des boutiques ouvertes
Au maritime été
Et des fenêtres vertes
Qui se livrent au ciel, les volets écartés,

S'écoule vers la Place où stagnent les passants
Jusqu'à ce que soit ronde
L'ombre des orangers qui simule un cadran
Où le doux midi grogne.

Runaway

Sitting at the crossways
Trying to keep my cool with the traffic lights
I've been up and down this line so any times
Girl, it's never right

Me and this machine keep the crazy urban dream
Locked in overflow
Sometimes I swear I could spin these old wheels
Just let it go

Runaway

Is it something that you hear
Coming through the waves on the radio
Or something that you see gently taps your memory
And shoots you down

Those hometown thoughts, school yard dreams and yesterdays
Moving in I just put my head down and drift away
And we're moving up and down, in and out of town
We're all searching for that piece of higher ground

Somewhere... Runaway

Gingers Have Souls

I just wanted to say that
it really irritates me
that South Park would say red-haired people don't have souls
and it really hurts my feelings
i act like it doesn't
but it does, really bad
for real

Gah, gingers have souls
You don't me, you're not God
You don't know who has a soul and who doesn't
Gah, I don't see the difference
Gingers have souls
I'm redheaded and God made me that way
And God made gingers have souls

Lately I've been being called a ginger
A fat ginger
It pisses me off
It pisses me off
I'm getting sick and tired of everyone
Making fun of red-haired people
What is so freaking different?
Tell me, tell me

I'm redheaded and proud of it
I'm proud of me
I'm proud of myself
I'm proud I got freckles, you know
It's who I am, God made me that way
And I have a soul

Only a Broken Heart

Here comes that feeling
I've seen in your eyes
Back in the old days
Before the hard times,
But I'm not afraid anymore,
It's only a broken heart.

I know the place where
You keep your secrets
Out of the sunshine
Down in a valley,
But I'm not afraid anymore,
It's only a broken heart.

What would I give, to start all over again,
To clean up my mistakes,
Stand in the moonlight, stand under Heaven
Wait for an answer, hold out forever,
But don't be afraid anymore,
It's only a broken heart.

What would I give, to start all over again,
To clean up my mistakes,
I know your weakness, you've seen my dark side,
The end of the rainbow is always a long ride,
But don't be afraid anymore,
It's only a broken heart,
It's only a broken heart.

You Know Who I Am

You know who I am
I'm Taxi Dave, Taxi Dave
With my black and yellow, black and yellow cab
You know who I am
And everything I do, I do is big

In my black and yellow cab
Now my cab looks unapproachable
It's safe, it's mean and it's super clean
You'll wanna ride with me cause I'm the big cat
I'll be behind the wheel of my yellow cab
Singing it and slappin it and that's that
Gotta call from a customer this just in
They need a pick up at the holiday inn

You know who I am
I'm Taxi Dave, Taxi Dave
With my black and yellow, black and yellow cab
You know who I am
And everything I do, I do is big
In my black and yellow cab

Who's about to guide you through a magical land
Like Peter Pan
From the club to the art museum

And who's about to fill you with the wisdom you need
Your own Socrates on the ride to the Hyatt Regency?

Keep him on speed dial
When you're 20 drinks in
You can travel in style
Stead of with a drunk friend

He'll suggest cuisine for your supper
And discuss the Renaissance like a boss, muthaFOO

I got in with a shawty about to take it back to my place
Dave recommended we see the local theatre's new space
Girl, I promise imma let you finish another night
But hamlet had the greatest climax of all time

You know who I am
I'm Taxi Dave, Taxi Dave
With my black and yellow, black and yellow cab
You know who I am
And everything I do, I do is big
In my black and yellow cab

You know who I am
I'm Taxi Dave, Taxi Dave
With my black and yellow, black and yellow cab
You know who I am
And everything I do, I do is big
In my black and yellow cab

Waving Through a Window

VERSE 1
I've learned to slam on the brake
Before I even turn the key
Before I make the mistake
Before I lead with the worst of me

VERSE 2
Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I got nothing to share
No, I got nothing to say

PRE-CHORUS
Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you've learned, because you've learned

CHORUS
On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
I'm waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
I'm waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

VERSE 3
We start with stars in our eyes
We start believing that we belong
But every sun doesn't rise
And no one tells you where you went wrong

PRE-CHORUS
Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you've learned, because you've learned

CHORUS
On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
Waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
Waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving?

BRIDGE
When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
It's like I never made a sound
Will I ever make a sound?

CHORUS
On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
Waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
Waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me? (Ooh)

OUTRO
Is anybody waving?
Waving, waving, whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh

Sang Froid

Tu crois m'connaître par cœur, mais connais-tu vraiment Fall
Si tu veux pas qu'elles fanent, me jette pas d'fleurs
Me mets pas dans ton répertoire, j'suis sur écoute
Apparemment, les 'bus-bar', c'est leur bête noire
J'suis pas Molière, j'dis une chose à ma manière, j'parle
Les molaires serrées, j'parle avec mes nerfs, j'parle
Sans faire de grand geste, sans faire de grande thèse
Ouais, j'parle cash sans faire de parenthèse
Des fois, j'ai pas les mots, mais c'est qu'un détail
La preuve : la vérité sort d'la bouche des mômes, ouais
Une seule langue, deux oreilles
Pour avoir deux fois plus de chance d'entendre les conseils de son khey
Parce qu’on s'fait pas seul, on s'fait pas seul
Difficile d's'en rappeler quand tes pieds touchent plus le sol
Difficile d's'en rappeler quand t'es sur l'devant d'la scène
Mais faut pas être prêt à tout pour l'argent, quelle que soit la somme
Ouais, creuser, creuser, faire son trou
Je sais qui sont mes frérots, pour le reste, j'les laisse entre eux
Que ce soit pour une bataille ou pour la guerre mec, on s'entraide
Les chiens aboient mais l'convoi reste concentré

Si tu veux la paix, ouais, yeah, yeah
Faut faire la guerre ou faut la payer, yeah, yeah
On dort debout, on dort éveillé, yeah, yeah
Plus grand-chose peut nous effrayer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (x4)

Fais gaffe à qui tu tourne le dos, ouais
Ceux qu'tu vois pas venir dans l'rétro
Fais gaffe à ceux qui parlent mais qui tournent autour du pot

Fais gaffe à ceux qui ont des grands projets mais qui dorment trop
Ouais, bouger, bouger, faire du blé
Ouais, bouger, faire du blé sauf si tu peux l'faire d'où t'es
Bien choisir ses associés pour éviter d'se faire doubler
Mettre sur le côté tout c'qui pourrait t'faire douter
Ouais, faut pas jouer toutes ses cartes
Faut pas forcer la gloire, c'est chacun son quart d'heure
Poser les premières briques et monter la garde
Y a ceux qui passent à l'acte et ceux qui regardent
Difficile de résister quand l'illicite te drague
L'argent facile est une michto qui tient par la braguette
Ouais, une meuf qui te drague et puis te braque
Tu veux lui passer la bague au doigt, t'as craqué
Ouais, caresser dans l'sens du poil
C'est caresser son égo, ouais, c'est lui faire prendre du poids
T'as pas besoin d'ça quand t'es déjà quelqu'un qu'on montre du doigt
Celui qui tombe du premier n'est pas comme celui qui tombe du toit
On t'a gonflé, gonflé, gonflé les fesses comme c'est pas permis
Il va t'falloir plus que des squats si tu veux les raffermir
Et tu sais très bien qu'tout c'qui monte et voué à redescendre
Quand le vent tourne, comment renaître de ses cendres ?
Ramasser les pots cassés et recoller les morceaux
T'as montré ton visage, t'as montré tes dorsaux
T'as clairement confondu les serviettes et les torchons
T'as tué la confiance, le corps est encore chaud

Si tu veux la paix, ouais, yeah, yeah
Faut faire la guerre ou faut la payer, yeah, yeah
On dort debout, on dort éveillé, yeah, yeah
Plus grand-chose peut nous effrayer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Life Is A Long Song

When you're falling awake
And you take stock of the new day
And you hear your voice croak
As you choke on what you need to say,
Well, don't you fret, don't you fear,
I will give you good cheer.

Life's a long song,
Life's a long song,
Life's a long song.
If you wait then your plate I will fill.

As the verses unfold and your soul
Suffers the long day,
And the twelve o'clock gloom
Spins the room, you struggle on your way,
Well, don't you sigh, don't you cry,
Lick the dust from your eye.

Life's a long song,
Life's a long song,
Life's a long song.
We'll meet in the sweet light of dawn.

As the Baker Street train spills your pain
All over your new dress,
And the symphony sounds underground,
Puts you under duress,
Well, don't you squeal as the heel
Grinds you under the wheels.

Life's a long song,
Life's a long song,
Life's a long song,
But the tune ends too soon for us all.

The Bell Song

Où va la jeune Indoue,
Filles des Parias,
Quand la lune se joue,
Dans le grand mimosas?

Elle court sur la mousse
Et ne se souvient pas
Que partout on repousse
L'enfant des parias;
Le long des lauriers roses,
Rêvant de douce choses, Ah!
Elle passe sans bruit
Et riant à la nuit.
Là-bas dans la forêt plus sombre,
Quel est ce voyageur perdu?
Autour de lui
Des yeux brillent dans l'ombre,
Il marche encore au hasard, est perdu!
Les fauves rugissent de joie,
Ils vont se jeter sur leur proie,
Le jeune fille accourt
Et brave leur fureurs:
Elle a dans sa main la baguette
Où tinte la clochette des charmeurs!
L’étranger la regarde,
Elle reste éblouie.
Il est plus beau que les Rajahs!
Il rougira, s'il sait qu'il doit
La vie à la fille des Parias.
Mais lui, l'endormant dans un rêve,
Jusque dans le ciel il l’enlève,
En lui disant: 'ta place est là!'
C’était Vishnu, fils de Brahma!
Depuis ce jour au fond de bois,
Le voyageur entend parfois
Le bruit léger de la baguette
Où tinte la clochette des charmeurs!

Wicked Windows

I review my past through wicked windows
Framed in silver
And hung in toughened glass, upon my face,
Around and over.
Now and then: memories of men who loved me.
No stolen kiss - could match their march on hot coals for me.
I have walked a line both faint and narrow, hard to follow.
Caught up in circumstance.
Harsh truth for history to mellow.
Through my eyes: loyalties and obligation
magnified.
Obedience: the better fellow.

Better not remember me.
Don't miss my passing.
Fierce winter fails to ruffle my icy sleep.
We never quite vanish.
No wet soft surrender.
Still waiting: bad blood running in close families.
I laughed like any child
Although you might find that strange
And Christmas was my favourite holiday.

Christmas was my favourite holiday.

I am not alone in seeing the world through wicked windows
While others hide likewise behind this vulnerable squinting.
It's in the stare: it's in the silent scrutinizing.
Strip you bare: I offer you no more disguising.

Better not remember me.
Don't miss my passing.
Fierce winter fails to ruffle my icy sleep.
We never quite vanish.
No wet soft surrender.
Same bad blood running in new families.

City Lights

All alone in the danger zone
Are you ready to take my hand?
All alone in the flame of doubt
Are we going to lose it all?

I could never leave you and the city lights
I could never beat the storm in your eyes
The storm in your bright eyes

All alone in the danger zone
Are you ready to take my hand?
All alone in the flame of doubt
Are we going to lose it all?

Looking between the space and the city lights
All we are is in the stars in your eyes
The stars in your dark eyes

All alone in the danger zone
Are you ready to take my hand?
All alone in the flame of doubt
Are we going to lose it all?

Let’s put some light into our lives
But keep the storm that’s in your eyes
Let’s put some light into our lives

All alone in the danger zone
Are you ready to take my hand?
All alone in the flame of doubt
Are we going to lose it all?

All alone in the danger zone
Are you ready to take my hand?
All alone in the flame of doubt
Are we going to lose it all?

To lose it all
To lose it all
