    02 – Distraction

    I’ll be your distraction

    There’s a field nearby
    With words written in stone
    My love will not die
    Please let it be known
    This place is dead
    It echoes through town
    There isn’t one voice
    I haven’t heard a sound

    The planes flew in
    Their bombs did too
    The city fell flat
    The fires, they grew
    When the smoke comes in
    It’ll color this town
    But I’ll still have you
    So I’ll say it aloud

    I’ll be your distraction

    The friendship we made
    Is a waste of our time
    There’s no one left here
    To show a future that’s kind
    It’s a world of hate
    Gone incredibly wrong
    We cared too late
    We just followed along

    And the boys went down
    With a gun in their hand
    Their weapon of choice
    Their knees in the sand
    If that field nearby
    Was still there to be used
    Would you ever have known?
    Those words are for you

    I’ll be your distraction
    I’ll be, I’ll be yours

     

    03 – Do It For Me Now

    I’m frightened at night and the wind has a roar
    It seeps through the hall and from under the door
    Like the shit that was said
    I can’t take it that well
    I give and I give and I give and I give and I’m still
    Lost and hurt and bone thin from the love that’s been starved
    I know it got close but I’m sure it’s too far
    From the point of suspense, that we know it should be
    The end of that part of our favorite movie
    When the guy grabs the girl and gives her his hand
    Says take me away from this torturous land
    Cause the grave is set up, the hole that I dug
    I gave and I gave and I gave and I gave you my trust
    Like the time that we kissed and you gave me a lie
    To add to the scene you pretended to cry
    But I’m here and I’m cool, the way that it is
    Just give me a chance and I’ll try to forgive

    And I don’t know
    And I can’t guess
    If it’s gonna be OK
    But now my last wish
    Is that you do this with me
    Kiss me here and hold my hand
    Let me feel like I’m the only one
    I know you can
    Won’t you do it for me now

    I’ve really had it with the rain of the tears
    The predictable storm that has come every year
    And it sneaks in from shore with a bat in its hand
    I’m trying I’m trying I’m trying I’m trying I can’t
    You’re a thief and a witch but I love you to death
    You steal my heart and curse under your breath
    But the one thing that I can most willingly prove
    That when you are gone I’ll be fine without you

    And I don’t know
    And I can’t guess
    If it’s gonna be OK
    But now my last wish
    Is that you do this with me
    Kiss me here and hold my hand
    Let me feel like I’m the only one
    I know you can
    Won’t you do it for me now?

    Now just hold on, hold on to me
    Hold on, hold on to me, hold on to me.

     

    04 – THE ADVENTURE

    I want to have the same last dream again,
    The one where I wake up and I’m alive.
    Just as the four walls close me within,
    My eyes are opened up with pure sunlight.
    I’m the first to know,
    My dearest friends,
    Even if your hope has burned with time,
    Anything that’s dead shall be re-grown,
    And your vicious pain, your warning sign,
    You will be fine.

    Hey, oh, here I am, and here we go,
    Life’s waiting to begin.

    Any type of love – it will be shown,
    Like every single tree reach for the sky.
    If you’re gonna fall,
    I’ll let you know,
    That I will pick you up
    Like you for I,
    I felt this thing,
    I can’t replace.
    Where everyone was working for this goal.
    Where all the children left without a trace,
    Only to come back, as pure as gold,
    To recite this all.

    Hey, oh, here I am, and here we go,
    Life’s waiting to begin, tonight.

    I cannot live, I can’t breathe
    Unless you do this with me

    Hey, ohhh, here I am
    Do this with me.
    Here we go, life’s waiting to begin.
    Life’s waiting to begin.

     

    05 – THE WAR

    The ocean, is on fire
    The sky turned dark again
    As the boats came in
    And the beaches
    Stretched out with soldiers
    With their arms and guns
    It has just begun

    Believe, you want this
    Believe, I want this, too

    Why won’t you tell me that it’s almost over?
    Why must this tear my head inside out?

    And the houses
    Laid out like targets
    With the deafening sound
    We watched them all go down
    And the families
    Now useless bodies
    They lay still black and blue
    A gift from us to you

    Believe, you want this
    Believe, I want this, too

    Why won’t you tell me that it’s almost over?
    Why must this tear my head inside out?

    Believe, believe do you want this too?

    Why won’t you tell me that it’s almost over?
    Why must this tear my head inside out?

     

    06 – IT HURTS

    It hurts

    Is this what you want?
    Cause everybody acts without a clue
    Every little kiss and grin you gave
    Was just a little bullshit I saw through

    The alcohol is scented with your breath
    You’re always all done up to just be used
    I’m waiting for excuses that deceive
    I’ll meet you in the back to see them through

    How did I let her inside?
    We’re dripping of sweat, I’m feeling alright
    Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend

    It hurts

    Are you out of your mind?
    You dug yourself into a liar’s hole
    You made a little spark to live inside
    It’s now a fucking fire out of control
    And when the morning comes you’ll act surprised
    And when the word gets out it will get old
    And every day you’ll try to live your life
    And every little scandal will unfold

    How did I let her inside?
    We’re dripping of sweat, I’m feeling alright
    Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend

    Sherrie, do you want it?
    Sherrie, I want it too

    How did I let her inside?
    We’re dripping of sweat, I’m feeling alright
    Her lips were the last thing touched tonight

    Your best friend is not your girlfriend. It hurts.
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend. It hurts.
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend.

     

    07 – A LITTLE’S ENOUGH

    When all is said and done
    Will we still feel pain inside?
    Will the scars go away with night?
    Try to smile for the morning light
    It’s like the best dream to have
    Where every thing is not so bad
    Every tear is so alone
    Like God himself is coming home to say

    I, I can do anything
    If you want me here
    And I can fix any thing
    If you’ll let me near
    Where are those secrets now
    That you’re too scared to tell
    I’ll whisper them all aloud
    So you can hear yourself

    Green trees were the first sign
    The deepest blue, the clearest sky
    The silence came with the brightest eyes
    Like turning water into wine
    The children ran to see
    The parents stood in disbelief
    And those who knew braced for the ride
    The earth itself then came alive to say

    I, I can do anything
    If you want me here
    And I can fix anything
    If you let me near
    Where are those secrets now
    That you’re too scared to tell
    I’ll whisper them all aloud
    So you can hear yourself

    I’m sorry I have to say it but you look like you’re sad
    Your smile is gone; I’ve notice it bad
    The cure is if you let in just a little more love
    I promise you this, a little’s enough

    Just a little…

     

    08 – THE GIFT

    There’s the strangest excitement today
    If you’re awake then you’re welcome to hear
    I’ve got a gift and it blew me a way
    From the far eastern sea straight to here
    Oh God I feel like I’m in for it now
    Its like the rush has gone straight to my brain
    But my voice is as lonely as loud
    As I whisper a joy of this pain

    And suddenly
    You’ve done it all
    You’ve won me over
    In no time at all

    And now I’ll stop the storm if it rains
    I’ll light a path far from here
    I’ll make your fear melt away
    And the world we know disappear

    If you ask I will do what you say
    All we have is this night to get through
    With a twist of your smile your own way,
    You left me all up in arms and confused
    Oh God I feel like I’m in for it now
    And how this kiss will be one wonderfully vain
    I swear I’ll melt if you touch me at all
    But then I’ll ask you to do it again, and again

    And suddenly
    You’ve done it all
    You’ve won me over
    In no time at all

    And now I’ll stop the storm if it rains
    I’ll light a path far from here
    I’ll make your fear melt away
    And the world we know disappear

     

    09 – GOOD DAY

    I should’ve turned back
    I should’ve known better
    Than to walk away defeated
    I’ll say it tonight, I’ll say it forever
    And this time I really swear I mean it

    Oh I need you now
    The Earth fell fast asleep
    This room is safe and sound
    Will you lay here with me and feel it?

    I think I like today
    I think its good
    Its something I can’t get my head around.

    True love is something that comes easy
    Just one kiss god I swear I want to
    I heard a pin drop and a nervous heartbeat
    Have you ever heard me scream I love you?

    Oh I need you now
    The Earth fell fast asleep
    This room is safe and sound
    Will you lay here with me and feel it?

    I think I like today
    I think it’s good
    Its something I can’t get my head around.

    I think I like today
    I think it’s good
    Its something I can’t get my head around.

     

    10 – START THE MACHINE

    The ash set in then blew away
    It’s getting lost into the sea
    I grew so close to all the thoughts I had to leave forever
    I left the chill and voice of screams and kids and ran for shelter

    You know I won’t say sorry
    You know I won’t say sorry
    The pain has a bad reaction
    A blend of fear and passion
    You know what it’s like to believe
    It makes me wanna scream

    I see a glow from far away
    A faint reflection on the sea
    I left some words quite far from here to be a short reminder
    I laid them out in stone in case they need to last forever

    You know I won’t say sorry
    You know I won’t say sorry
    The pain has a bad reaction
    A blend of fear and passion
    You know what it’s like to believe
    It makes me wanna scream

    I see the stars, they’re in your eyes
    A playful kiss, can you tell I’m excited?
    A fast escape in the nick of time
    If you lost your wish, can I help you find it?
    I’m on my knee, just one to start
    A fresh new start, don’t be undecided

    If love’s a word, that you say, then say it, I will listen…
    If love’s a word, that you say, then say it, I will listen…
