THE UNKNOWN

WITH THE WATER I FALL
OVER VERTICAL DROPS
MOVING SAND, PLUCKING STONES

CARVING DEEP INTO YOU
ERODING WHAT WE KNEW
CRAVING SHELTER, FINDING HOPE

UNDER PRESSURE WE CRACK
AND RECEDE INTO DEPTHS
FAR FROM WHERE WE BEGAN

THE UNKNOWN



A MATTER OF TIME

RAIN DROPS, TREES RISE
VALLEYS SINK AND SEAS DIVIDE
IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

TEMPERATURES RISE
MOUNTAINS PEAK, SKIES FALL, FLOODS TIDE
IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

wITH THE wAVES
GUIDING ME
I GIVE wAY
GO ASTRAY

RAIN FILLS MY EYES
IN THE SEA I LOSE MY MIND
I'M ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

wHEN wE COLLIDE
MOUNTAINS PEAK, SKIES FALL, FLOODS TIDE
wE'RE ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

 

YOU COVER ME

OVERLAPPING SILHOUETTES
SCATTER HUES OF GREY INTO THE DAY
WE ARE ENCOMPASSED BY DUST AND CLOUDS
WE ILLUMINATE THE DARKEST DAY

MOVING SLOWLY
YOU COVER ME
BY MY SIDE
OUT OF SIGHT IS OUT OF MIND

MOVING SLOWLY
UNCOVER ME
LEFT BEHIND
OUT OF SIGHT IS OUT OF MIND

 

FORWARD

MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT DERAILED
HEADING NOWHERE
LOST TRACK OF TIME
A STANDSTILL FULL OF DESPAIR
WHEN THE LONGING GROWS
MINDS TAKE HOLD
HANDS UNFOLD, LETTING GO

MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT DERAILED
HEADING NOWHERE
UNTRAVELLED PATHS AHEAD
I CAME UNPREPARED
WHEN THE LONGING GROWS
MINDS TAKE HOLD
HANDS UNFOLD, I LET GO

MOVING FORWARD

MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT DERAILED
HEADING NOWHERE
A PLACE IN TIME WHERE ENDS MEET
WHO WILL GUIDE US THERE?
WHEN THE LONGING GROWS
MINDS TAKE HOLD
HANDS UNFOLD AND LET GO



IN SILENCE

TINTED IN BLUE
THE LIGHT REACHED FOR YOU 
IN SILENCE YOU WAITED
YOUR BREATHING DICTATED
THE PACE OF YOUR THOUGHTS
OF YOUR SENSES AND NEEDS 
YOU SHARE A SADNESS
A HUE SO DISTINCT 

EMBLAZONED BY THE SKY
YOUR EYES YEARN FOR THE NIGHT
A TIME OF INNOCENCE
APPEARING LIMITLESS

TINTED IN BLUE
THE LIGHT REACHED FOR YOU  
UNTROUBLED YOU WAITED
OBSERVING THE CHANGES 

TINTED IN BLUE
THE LIGHT REACHED FOR YOU  
IN SAFETY YOU WAITED
UNTIL TIME INVADED
YOUR MIND AND TOOK OVER
YOUR OBSCURE RETREAT
YOU SHARE A DEPTH
A HUE SO DISCRETE


4EVER

ALTERING WINDS SWEPT AWAY WHAT ONCE WAS
HIDDEN BENEATH GUARDED SHADOWS AND SHORES
SHIFTED PERSPECTIVES, CHANGED TO THE CORE
LANDSCAPES I KNEW EXIST NO LONGER

ALTERING WINDS SWEPT AWAY WHAT ONCE WAS
HIDDEN BENEATH GUARDED SHADOWS AND SHORES
SHIFTED PERSPECTIVES, CHANGED TO THE CORE
LANDSCAPES WE KNEW EXIST NO LONGER

WHERE ARE YOU?
I LOST YOU

4EVER APART


EVERGREEN

HOLLOW TREES GROWING BENEATH
THE CANOPY OF STARS
SPREADING BRANCHES TOWARDS THE BLUE
FOLLOWING TRAILS OF TRUTH

WHEN THEY TOUCH AND INTERLOCK
LIGHT SHAFTS EXPOSE THEIR THOUGHTS
SPREADING BRANCHES TOWARDS THE BLUE
FOLLOWING TRAILS OF TRUTH

AN EVERGREEN FOREST
HAS BEEN IN ME, GROWING

WHEN WE TOUCH AND INTERLOCK
LIGHT SHAFTS EXPOSE OUR THOUGHTS
SPREADING ARMS TOWARDS THE BLUE
FOLLOWING TRAILS OF TRUTH



INTO THE DEEP

A LOSS OF WORDS
A GASP FOR AIR
A SENSE OF WRONG
A RAPID BLUR
FIRST COLOURS FADE
THEN DISAPPEAR
INTO THE DEEP

A SUDDEN STATE OF ECSTASY
A CERTAIN SMELL
A MEMORY
FIRST COLOURS FADE
THEN DISAPPEAR
INTO THE DEEP

REACH FOR ME

A LACK OF TIME
A GREAT RELIEF
A MISSING NAME
A DRASTIC CHANGE
FIRST COLOURS FADE
THEN DISAPPEAR
INTO THE DEEP

A WASTED DAY
A LUXURY
A TROUBLED SOUL
A DESTINY
FIRST COLOURS FADE
THEN DISAPPEAR
INTO THE DEEP



DON'T GO

LIGHTLY FALL ON ME
AND STROKE MY SKIN, SILENTLY
REST, ABSORB THE HEAT
LISTEN TO ME AS I BREATHE

DON'T GO

YOU LET NIGHT SKIES SHINE
REFLECTING LIGHT ONTO ME

THE STRONGEST TASTE, THE GUARANTEE
THE SWEET AND TENDER MEMORY
A STRONGER TASTE THAT GUARANTEES
A FADING MEMORY

LIGHTLY FALL ON ME
AND STROKE MY SKIN, SILENTLY
REST, ABSORB MY HEAT
MELT INTO ME AS I FREEZE




LIGHTNING SPARKED

WALK WITH ME
THROUGH THE DARK UNTIL WE REACH
LIGHTNING SKIES
WHERE THE TIGHTEST KNOTS UNTIE

LIGHTS SO BRIGHT
OUR SPIRITS REUNITE

SUDDEN ERUPTIONS SET US FREE
CHANGE OF DIRECTION, CARELESSLY
UNEXPECTEDLY JUMPING BREAKS
SPARKS AND COMBUSTION, RISING RAGE

WALK WITH ME
THROUGH LOST TIME UNTIL WE REACH
LIGHTNING SKIES
WHERE THE TIGHTEST KNOTS UNTIE



NOWHERE

WITH NOWHERE LEFT TO GO I STORMED YOUR MIND


CURRENTS CHANGE

WHEN THOUGHTS DIVERGE INTO A SEARCH
WITH TIME LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT IS RIGHT
AND WITH THE TIDE NEW ANSWERS RISE

WHEN ANSWERS MERGE AND THOUGHTS CONVERGE
WITH TIME, LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT IS RIGHT
AND WITH THE TIDE, NEW QUESTIONS RISE

RESTLESSLY I LISTEN

THE ENDLESS HISSING OF THE SEA
CURRENTS CHANGE CONSTANTLY



THIS SILENCE KILLS

THIS SILENCE KILLS, SING FOR ME
FILL MY HEART WITH ANYTHING



TIP TAPPING

TIP TAPPING
I WAS TIP TAPPING
IN THE DARK

TIP TAPPING
I WAS TIP TAPPING
IN THE PARK

THE SOUND OF THE LEAVES
WHEN MY FEET HIT THE GROUND
THE SOUND OF THE LEAVES
WHEN MY FEET BOUNCE AROUND

IN THE DARK, iN THE PARK



THIRTEEN THIRTYFIVE

STRONGEST TASTE
LOUDEST DROP
HEAD IS FILLED
THE THOUGHT, UNLOCKED

YOU'D BE THIRTEEN
I'D BE THIRTY-FIVE
GONE TO FIND A PLACE FOR US TO HIDE

BE TOGETHER BUT ALONE
AS THE NEED FOR IT HAS GROWN

A CAVE OR A SHED
A CAR OR A BED
A HOLE IN THE GROUND
OR A BURIAL MOUND
A BUSH OR A TREE
OR THE AEGEAN SEA WILL DO FOR ME

FOR YOU I FOUND A VENT
IN THE BOTTOM OF A COAL MINE
JUST ENOUGH SPACE FOR YOUR HANDS IN THE INSIDE

IF YOU GO
DO LET ME KNOW

A DEN OR A DESSERT
PERHAPS AN INK SQUIRT
A CELLAR, A WISHING WELL, A WAR
OR A GUARANTEE WILL DO FOR ME

FOR YOU I FOUND A CELL
ON THE TOP FLOOR OF A PRISON
JUST ENOUGH SPACE FOR YOU TO FIT YOUR FEET IN

IF YOU GO
PLEASE LET ME KNOW



YOU FLESH AGAINST MINE

I WANT TO BE YOUR LOVER
WIPE YOUR LIPSTICK ACROSS MY MIRROR

YOUR SKIN ACROSS MY SKIN
YOUR HANDS ON MY HIPS
MY NECK ON YOUR LIPS

TO THE BACKBONE

WHERE THE BROKEN GLASS HAS BEEN LYING
NEXT TO MY HEART
WHERE THE BROKEN GLASS HAS BEEN LYING
NEXT TO MY HEART, TO MY CONSCIENCE
WHERE THE BROKEN GLASS HAS BEEN
NEXT TO MY HEART, TO MY CONSCIENCE, TO MY FAITH

YOUR FLESH AGAINST MINE
YOU FLETCH YOUR TEETH, I'LL FLETCH MINE

UP THE STAIRCASE
DESPAIR CASE

TAKE CARE, DON'T HURT YOURSELF
TAKE CARE, DON'T HURT MYSELF



YOU ARE MY WINTER

AND I SWEAR I TRIED
TO KILL WHAT'S INSIDE

I DIDN'T MAKE IT IN TIME
PLEASE COME TAKE ALL THAT'S MINE

ALL I WANT IS YOURS
AND HOW THIS HURTS

ALEXANDER

THE STREETS, THE SUMMERS, THE ANONYMITY
PUBLIC TRANSPORTS, PHOTOBOOTHS AND GALLERIES
THE ZOO, THE PARKS, APARTMENTS, THE ROOFTOPS

ARCHITECTURE, HAUPTBAHNHOF, THE BALCONIES
THE WINTERS, WITH ME

ALEXANDER, YOU ARE MY WINTER

ALEXANDER



THE UNDYING NEED TO SCREAM

DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY
BUT IT MUST GET OUT
WON'T YOU STICK AROUND
AS I TRY TO THINK OUT LOUD

I KNOW THAT YOU CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH
INSIDE OF ME, THE UNDYING NEED TO SCREAM

TRIED IT WITH LAUGHTER
WITH ANXIETY
I'VE TRIED IT WITH YOU
NOW I MUST SCREAM

THIS MUST END HERE
BEFORE I LOSE MY VOICE OVER YOU

THIS MUST END HERE
BEFORE I LOSE MYSELF IN YOU



FROM ONE TO SIX HUNDRED KILOMETERS

THE MOST TENDER THING YOU'VE SAID TO ME
IS THAT I SUFFER FROM PARANOIA
SOMETIMES WHEN I WISH TO KILL
I COUNT FROM ONE TO SIX HUNDRED KILOMETERS

YET I FAIL TO FEEL
I SAIL TO SEA
I FAIL TO BEHAVE RATIONALLY
AND I FAIL TO GRIP
I FAIL TO KEEP
I FAIL TO THINK ABOUT ME

IF I WERE ABLE TO HATE
PERHAPS HATRED WOULD BRING ME RELIEF
I OUGHT TO HAVE A STEEL BROW
AND A HEART OF STONE

YET YOU FAILED TO FEEL
YOU SAILED TO SEA
YOU FAILED TO EMBRACE MY INSECURITIES
AND I FAILED TO GRIP
I FAILED TO KEEP
I FAILED TO THINK ABOUT ME



HEY BEAU

SHEETA, WHERE IS YOUR CRYSTAL?
THE PIRATES STOLE IT, OH NO
SHEETA, WHERE DID YOUR CRYSTAL GO?

HEY BEAU

THE ROBOTS, ARE GOING TO HELP US FIND OUR CRYSTAL

BEAU, WHERE IS YOUR CRYSTAL?
THE PIRATES STOLE IT, OH NO
BEAU, WHERE DID YOUR CRYSTAL GO?



TEXTURE OF MY BLOOD

LOCKED DOOR, FORGOTTEN KEY
TONIGHT, OPEN UP FOR ME
I AM RETURNING HOME
WITHOUT THE SLIGHTEST HOPE

NAKED AND ON MY KNEES
LOOK AS IF YOU'RE PLEASED TO SEE
ME RETURNING HOME
PASS ME THAT SPARK OF HOPE

LET YOU TASTE THE TEXTURE OF MY BLOOD
LACKING IRON
GATES TO MY HEART

OPENED UP, THE RELIEF
TIME HAS COME FOR YOU TO SEE
WHERE IM COMING FROM
WHAT I'VE BEEN RUNNING FROM

I DON'T KNOW
HOW ON EARTH WILL I EVER KNOW?

GAZING THROUGH YOUR EYES
I SAW THEM COMING RIGHT AT YOU

MY SUPERIOR VENA CAVA
INFERIOR TO YOURS



GUMACHE

YOUR TOOTHBRUSH IS WHERE YOU LEFT IT
IT SITS RIGHT BY MY SINK
EVER SO OFTEN WHILST BRUSHING MY TEETH
MY GUM ACHES MY THOUGHTS SLINK

YOUR TOOTHBRUSH IS WHERE YOU LEFT IT
IT SITS RIGHT BY MY SINK
EVER SO OFTEN NEGLECT MY TEETH
IN REVERIE SIT DOWN RETHINK

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
SENSELESS FIGHTS

YOUR TOOTHBRUSH IS WHERE YOU LEFT IT
IT SITS RIGHT BY MY SINK
EVER SO OFTEN I GRIND MY TEETH
ABSTAIN, DEEP-SIX THIS MISSING LINK


ABRUPT CLARITY


AS A TORNADO TOOK SHAPE
I CAME TO SEE

FOR AN HOUR OR SO, STOOD ON THAT FIELD
WATCHED THE DIRT RISE
AS IF PARALYSED

THE CLOSER I GOT
THE LESS I COULD FEEL
THE LOUDER IT GOT
THE MORE IT SEEMED REAL

WHEN RAIN HIT MY SKIN
ABRUPT CLARITY

I HAD WITNESSED
A RARITY

AS THE SKY CLEARED
DOUBT DISAPPEARED

WITHOUT EVIDENCE
OR RESONANCE
