Get out get out get out Get away If I don't look back behind me I won't see yesterday Run run run Away at last To a place I can't be followed Far away from the past I'll start another life Somewhere new Where nobody'll know my name No one can pursue Become someone else New person same face Run to somewhere new Far away from this place Fade fade fade I'll be remade No one out here can find me Each pursuit I will evade Step step step One step ahead I'll never double back And if you follow you're misled Gone gone gone And disappear I'll vanish in the night As I move away from here Fade fade fade I'll be remade For every limit broken there's a price that must be paid Maybe you've forgotten All the things that we've done But if you've forgotten Then you're the only one Up in the mountains Down the shoreline to the sea On each and every road No one can follow me Walking through the city I escape past all the cars Look up into the night And lose myself out in the stars I'll start another life Somewhere new Where nobody'll know my name And neither will you Become someone else New person same face Run to somewhere new Far away from this place

In the light of day They seem so clear (They seem so near) These ways you blazed For all our years (These days you raised to all our cheers) We all see What you played (We all see the traps were laid) We all know The contracts made (We see just what you paid) You lit the flame You took the blame You saw the world And you were heard We remember Though it seems Like the smallest thing That we can bring As days fade They seem so near (They seem so dear) And in the shade They reappear (the night delayed, the coast is clear) I don't care What they say (You burned bright to light the day) But time won't stop The ways we strayed (Circling above the fray) Stars burn away They seem so clear (They seem so near) The wind that preyed On all our fears (The violin for all our tears) And we all see What you played (We all see the traps were laid) And we all know Just what you paid (We know the contracts made)

I’m the common denominator Spooled up like a thread A replay of this moment Where I find myself again For every new beginning Relentlessly I’ll make Each and every choice Another risk I shouldn’t take I’ll say it’s only sometimes I’ll say it yet again I’ll say it over and over The same right now as then I’ll say it’s only sometimes For a second I’ll believe I’ll say it over and over Just one last reprieve And I fall I’ll turn out the light Because the darkest shadows Are hidden in the night And I fall Until the morning light Because the darkest shadows Will hide again tonight If hindsight were watching Could it turn and look back And see me making circles Deep inside these tracks If there was a warning I'd still throw the dice And race without a care Go running Running on black ice I’ll say it’s only sometimes I’ll say it by design I’ll say it over and over And wait to draw the line I’ll say it’s only sometimes For a second I’ll believe I’ll say it over and over Just one last reprieve I hear the sound that’s coming Beating like a drum Resonates from every place It’s the noise I can’t outrun Dare I ask the question Does anyone suspect When did I become Both the cause and the effect I’ll say it’s only sometimes Ignore what lies ahead I’ll say it over and over Before I cut the thread I’ll say it’s only sometimes For a second I’ll believe I’ll say it over and over Just one last reprieve

There's a warzone Here inside me Notions want to Pulverize me Feel the need to Weaponize me Feed the beast to Demonize me Find the time to Lionize me But I won't let All the lies be I won't let you Civilize me I won't let you Undersize me It's so bizarre This selection Makes it sound like Misdirection's Your only plan This deception Means we all gotta Make a stand A clean shadow All stars must cast False neon glow Time's moving fast The old violence Back from the past Only silence Can make it last There's a warzone Here inside me Nations try to Brutalize me Fuel the need to Balkanize me Break the peace to Ostracize me Find the time to Mobilize me But I won't let All the lies be I won't let you Civilize me I won't let you Undersize me

I knew you way back then That moment way back when The cold air hit my flesh And the shapes of stolen breath Touched the secrets you conceal Every angle to reveal The phantom in the dust Telling me to trust And I let you in But I cannot feel the ground All the air is gone In an overwhelming sound And I let you in Where it all resounds Now the world is spinning And I can’t tell up from down And I don’t recall Where we end and we begin Was it from the inside out Or outside crawling in I’m caught up in the darkness And bright light of the glare And nothing else but you Nothing else but you is there In the vision that you sell The secrets that you tell You take my hand and say Tonight you’ll come away I’ve waited here for you The answer to the clue The threshold where you see This night will set you free

I am scattered through time zones Consumed by flight plans Pieces fallen to the ground They evoke no feeling no sound Four lines across the moon Lie like paths in my heart Did I pull away too soon? Put the end before the start? If the clouds break For an instant Then I'll know Home lights still burn When the earth shakes For a moment Then I'll feel The world still turns I am pulled across daytime I am programmed through call signs Fragments burn the baseline Embers lighting up the skyline Four lines across the moon Transmit my fears away Did I strike the match too soon? Trace this course before today? All I see Four lines over the moon All I need Four lines over the moon All we feel Four lines across the moon All we heed Four lines across the moon All I see Four lines across the moon All I need Four lines across the moon

Tonight the shadows whisper And shake in the trees The wind comes down, the fateful sound As the night stirs and breathes And I hear a voice approaching The charge I can’t ignore A flooding river, come down to deliver This message to my door Is it just the wind tonight Or do we reach the end Do I hear your call Or the echo from within Is it just the wind that whispers With the ringing in my ear And how I feel you close tonight Feel you pull me near The wall of a growing chorus Trembles on the sky What I hear calling back, this penance paid back The words I can’t disguise And I hear the pitch that’s rising By the window, in the door The river overflows, the hourglass shows Tonight we settle the score Here in the night it plays And I can’t forget Do I play out my role, did I always know Or do I misdirect Here in the night it plays Repeating all the same In the words to this song, I’ve known all along I hear it in this game Softly now the darkness Holds me on a tether In the words to follow, will they ring hollow Or bind us here together The quiet now surrounds me Cold shimmers in the air But I feel you, my love, in the warmth above In the heavens we’re laid bare

Watching in slow motion The roads all lead us here The sound inb slow motion The sound becoming clear My hear beats like the echo Tick tock the hollow beast And just around the corner The monster waits, unleashed For all that I have loved In slow motion where I wait On a road that moves so fast While the hour's growing late If all that was built Was never meant to last Now I watch the minutes stop In a broken hourglass If time is new again Then we can make our fate Now if you will take my hand The hour's growing late A fire in slow motion Steam rises off the streets Shift along the frozen cold Shadow of the beast If time is new again It flashes like the rain and scatters up the dust as the wind ignites the flame A heartbeat in the noise You'll breathe fire into me A signal burning like the stars That we all can see The storm in full motion Lightning marks the sky And shows the path for us to strike The beast in the eye In the storm we quicken My heart beats like the rain As the wind sweeps in It turns the night to day A heartbeat in the noise A flood that carves the land As the tide rushes in We will push time's hand

This is the way The way the world ends In cold and in fire In ice drowned in flame This is the way The way it all ends Here with you I've made my amends

Moving through the streets With our flags at half staff I pass the banners to rage The crowds wave on pass Look around the faces for A sign of welcome at last And then I remember The last call to December We did this on our own We hunted our own hunger We did this on our own We planted our own plunder We wasted all our wonder Papers blow on by the Door to the empty hall Soldiers stroll along the Shoreline's graying wall Prayers escape once more Before the coming nightfall And then I remember The lone nights in September Driving through this night See the white lines streaking past I'm asking for a sign of spring A daybreak that won't be dashed Monitor the fiction for A dream of hope at last And then I remember My last call to December
12.
You're barely through the door And that sunny dress you wear Falls to my bedroom floor I'm pretty sure that I Am never gonna forget this But I'm probably gonna regret this But I seem to be in love With the bad idea of you I'm living another life With the bad idea of you I've dimly realized You're not the you that I know And I've idealized I'm pretty sure very soon I'd break your world apart And you'd break my heart You're not the one for me It's just imagination Not reality I'm pretty sure that soon You'd break my world apart And I'd break your heart
