Lyrics

It's just a dream
That keeps me awake
I want to scream out
There's only so much I can take
I was beholden
And very powerless
If your path was golden
I couldn't care less

I could throw the sweetest curve
If I only had the nerve

I don't care what people say
I live my life the lonely way
And when your nose gets out of joint
I see I've almost made my point
Won't you leave me alone?

It's just a day
That turns into a week
And as the years stray
Into a losing streak

I could sing the sweetest tune
As we dance into our ruin

I don't care what people think
I write my tale in poison ink
And when your lie gets in my way
A rotten case of truth decay
Won't you leave me alone?

Lyrics

Gold as the dust that settles on your brow
Cold as the wind that rustles through the bough
Gold in your eyes and the fever starts to fail
Cold in your hands as they fumble for the grail

Here it comes
Setting sun
In the barrel of a gun
It starts to show
Starts to grow
In the feathers of the crow

It's never done
Setting sun
End of days has just begun
Make it so
Make it go
Setting sun will always glow

Old as the bones that rattle in your tomb
Young as the night and the darkness starts to bloom
Old as the day in the comfort of the womb
Young as a rose with its poisonous perfume

Here it comes
Setting sun
In the barrel of a gun
It starts to show
Starts to grow
In the feathers of the crow

It's never done
Setting sun
End of days has just begun
Make it so
Make it go
Setting sun will always glow

Always glow

Lyrics

Though you've only just met me
My crystal ball is ready
I'd like to make a prediction
About your coming affliction
Your family annoys you
Their venon almost destroys you
The bickering is endless
And leaves you full of resentment

And it feels like a bad dream
Feels like a bad dream

Mother Nature's crawling
Through the fields of Holland
Overrun with vermin
It was pre-determined

Though you've only just met me
You're trying to forget me
The ones who drive you crazy
You will be like them some day
It may trouble your aesthetics
But you share their genetics
So one way or another
You will end up like your mother

And it feels like a bad dream
Feels like a bad dream

Mother Nature's brawling
Like bowling pins we're falling
Overcome with bourbon
It was pre-determined
Mother Nature's calling
Genghis Kahn and Stalin
Duchesses in ermine
It was pre-determined

Mother nature
Mother nature
Mother nature

Though you've only just met me
I know you won't forget me

Lyrics

I am the puzzle you can never resolve
The stain you cannot dissolve
I am the gold lost down the drain
The ghost riding on the wings of the plane

I am the time you can never get back
The qualities you will always lack
I am the word on the tip of the tongue
Forgotten photos of when you were young

I evade you
I evade you

I am the aura that blinds your eyes
Possibilities you could never realize
The glue pulling you to the earth
The devil child never given birth

I am the dream that you can’t recall
The glass eye that you took off the ball
I am the message that you never sent
A missing circus and an empty tent

I evade you
I evade you

I am the force you cannot resist
The revolution you cannot desist
I sell tickets to the end of days
And leave you hanging in an empty maze

I evade you
I evade you

I am the puzzle you could never resolve
I persuade you
The stain that you could never dissolve
I invade you

Lyrics

The words are finally aligned
The feeling that was left unkind
The rumors that were never said
Were only stuck inside your head

In your head -- no one can save you
In your head – no one can save you now
In your bed – no one can touch you
In your head – no one can touch you now

The hour glass is floating down
The best is sleeping underground
The rain is turning into rust
The mountains crumble into dust

In your head -- no one can free you
In your head – no one can keep you down
In your bed – no one can hold you
In your head – no one can hold you down

No one loves you
No one knows you
No one loves you more than me

No one sees you
No one feeds you
No one needs you more than me

In your head
In your head
In your head – no one can touch you
In your head

Lyrics

Take that man back to Texas
Where he longs to be
He’s had his fame and fortune
And share of misery
Now he wants to drive the tractor
Through a nuclear reactor
That boat is sinking in the sea

He led us down the path
And now it’s time to end
No longer young and supple
Break instead of bend
You all got what you wanted
The sharp edge dulled and blunted
A dying garden left to tend

Round, round
Treading the same ground
Down, down
Turn this thing around

There is change in the air
In the headlights everywhere
A revolution will return
Spread the ashes that we burned
The wind is gonna turn
The wind is gonna turn

Take that man to the palace
Quick as you can go
Place him upon the throne
And let the people know
Stuck in a deep recession
It’s time for a succession
Plant the seeds and let them grow

Round, round
Treading the same ground
Down, down
Turn this thing around

There is change in the air
In the headlights everywhere
A revolution will return
Spread the ashes that we burned
The wind is gonna turn
The wind is gonna turn

Lyrics

You occupied Wall Street
Because you couldn’t find a job
But you left me hanging
When you took off with that mob
I know you’re special
A gorgeous one of a kind
So I’m coming back now
I guess I kind of lost my mind

It’s a better feeling
When I hold you in my arms
It’s a better feeling
Together we are strong

The tide is turning
We’re running out of time
If we stick together
Who knows what we will find

It’s a better feeling
When I hold you in my arms
It’s a better feeling
Together we are strong
A better feeling
We’ve been holding off too long
It’s a better feeling
Together we are strong

It’s a better feeling
When I hold you in my arms
It’s a better feeling
Together we are strong
A better feeling
A better feeling
It’s a better feeling

Lyrics

We pass the hat because it keeps our dreams alive
We need your money cuz it helps us to survive
If you don’t give at all, well, God gets quite annoyed
You’ll spend eternity cast into the void

We pass the hat because our time is getting near
We need your money to complete the fiscal year
We pay our salaries and bills with petty cash
And leave the rest of you forging through the trash

We got so big
We got so fat
We got so hard
What’s wrong with that?

Well, it all adds up
Yes, it all adds up
Yes, it all adds up
When the spirit calls
When the spirit calls

We take your money and we put it in the bank
In case our real estate investments ever tank
We lead the faithful and they do what they are told
So we can build our church with spires made of gold

We got so much
We got so rich
We leave you scraps
So why do you bitch?

Because it all adds up
Yes, it all adds up
Yes, it all adds up
When the spirit calls
When the spirit calls

When the spirit calls
You’ve got to have the balls
To buy shopping malls
And Niagara Falls
When the spirit calls
You’ve got to have it all
You’ve got to have it all
You’ve got to have it all

Lyrics

I cover my eyes
Because I don’t want to see
The reflection looking back at me

I cover my heart
Because I won’t play the part
Love should never be art

It should be real
Should make you feel
Like you could die
And you wouldn’t mind
It happens too fast
A nuclear blast
Blows you apart
Opens your heart

Love should be blind
Cover your eyes, cover your eyes
Love should be blind

I cover my ears
Because I don’t want to hear
The gasp when I look in the mirror

I cover my mouth
Because I don’t like the sound
Of my forehead hitting the ground

It’s so surreal
Love makes you feel
Like you could kill
You know the drill
Before you know
It doesn’t let go
Blows you apart
Opens your heart

Love should be blind
Cover your eyes, cover your eyes
Love should be blind
Cover your eyes, cover your eyes

Lyrics

Hidden in the floorboard
Underneath the bed
Blood still running
Pounding in my head
Heart still pumping
I’m trying to ignore
Now the heat is coming
Rapping at my door

Can’t you see?
Yes, I’m quite all right
Can’t you tell?
Would you like a light?
Nervous time
I could make some tea
Nervous time
There’s nothing wrong with me

Say what you will
Any man could learn to kill
Say what you like
Any man could learn to strike

Wicked eye staring
Deep into my soul
Wait until he’s sleeping
Before I take control
Heart still pumping
Ticking in my head
Burning in my ears
The shouting of the dead

Can’t you tell?
I like to stay up late
Can’t you see?
I don’t believe in fate
Nervous time
Won’t you take a seat?
Nervous time
There’s nothing wrong with me

Say what you will
Any man could learn to kill
Say what you like
Any man could learn to strike

Deep in the night
Like a moth is drawn to light
His evil eye
Had to shut, it had to die

Lyrics

I’m gonna get you . . . off of your spot
I’m gonna show you . . . what is and what’s not

Take a bath in the sunlight
The rays will be washing you clean
Nothing left in the sunlight
I can’t see a thing but the beam

I’m gonna find you . . . light up the dark
I’m gonna touch you . . . with fire and spark

Take a bath in the sunlight
The rays will be washing you clean
Nothing left in the sunlight
I can’t see a thing but the beam
Take a bath in the sunlight
The rays will be washing you clean
Nothing left in the sunlight
I can’t see a thing but the beam

I’m gonna burn you . . . peel off the skin
I’m gonna free you . . . don’t you want to begin?

Take a bath in the sunlight
Take a bath in the sun
Take a bath in the sunlight
Take a bath in the sun

Lyrics

The people of this town disappear at night
Scramble like bugs in the kitchen light
I don't want to know what they fear
Hiding in the shadows . . . the shadows coming near

Night will fall
And cover you with rust
Night will call
In the darkness we will trust

Something wicked stirring in the trees
Satan's little hookers on their knees
Insanity billows in the breeze
Lethal spores in the air . . . in the air we breathe

Night will fall
And polish you with dust
Night will call
In the darkness we will trust

I can hear scratching in the wall
Waiting for the somber dark to fall
Waiting for the solemn lullabies
Waiting for the darkness . . . the darkness always lies

Night will fall
And cover you with rust
Night will call
In the darkness we will trust

Night will fall
Darkness we will trust
Night will call
In the darkness we will touch

Lyrics

Clouds obscure the sun
There are whitecaps on the water
As we move in single file
At the service for his daughter

I’m not afraid
I’m not afraid
I’m not afraid
Of the dark

No one is immune
Come Hell or high water
I can’t hold back my sorrow
But I can hold my daughter

She’s not afraid
She’s not afraid
She’s not afraid
She’s not afraid
She’s not afraid
She’s not afraid
Of the dark

Lyrics

It's so nice to make your acquaintance
Step outside, it's a lovely view
Better bring a team of accountants
In case it doesn't add up for you

It's so easy to make it hard
It's so easy to make it hard
It's so easy to make it hard for you

Don't be so afraid of the future
You're not doomed to repeat the past
I could make you the deal of a lifetime
Or shackle you tight to the mast

It's so easy to make it hard
Take young Sherlock to Scotland Yard
It's so easy to make it hard for you

Take the suitcase and count the money
I assure you it's all there
You may think I drive a hard bargain
And I'm finally out of your hair
Woman, wine, luxury, cash
From your shaking hands, let the dice roll
Take the money, you can take the money
You can take the money
I get your soul

It's so easy to make it hard
It's so easy to make it hard
It's so easy to make it hard
It's so easy to make it hard for you
