two sides of that white line staring back at each other silently aware I see you waiting for some kind of reflection look away look away like I would if I was you inside of that white lie staring back into emptiness, the silent heart I see you waiting for some kind of deflection like a slow bullet enters the heart it leaves its mark on you two sides of that same mind staring back at each other silently aware I see you waiting for some kind of protection staring out into space as if it was staring at you I see you waiting

sit yourself on the curb with your cigarette bring yourself to my side and let’s talk for a while so you’re stuck on the edge and you’re tired and young you’re too scared to live inside ’cause you’re dying on the outside sit yourself on the curb if you’re tired and upset bring yourself to my side we’ll break free, break out so you’re stuck on the edge feeling tired and young you’re too scared to live inside ’cause you’re dying on the outside you may be young and criticised it’s never easy try to forget your pride you better believe me you may be young and criticised it’s never easy try to forget your pride each time you fall each time you fall

I am the slow burning lamp I am the one that never sleeps I am the way back down I am the slow and steady heart come back now don’t hesitate any more I am the slow turning hands I am the words that can’t escape I am the endless heights I am the slow and steady heart don’t wait I’m always here I am the slow turning hands I am the slow burning lamp I am the slow turning page I am the slow and steady heart if someone could find us the way would you come and break out if someone could take it away would you stand or lay down

stay you’ve carried me so far love lift me from this dark shining sea wait let me play my part all these lives buried under time just ticking by take me over now this world is overcome I can’t get out, it’s all around me take me out take me now cold burning words of song have you ever seen the sun shine all day long take me over now this world is overcome I can feel you now, it’s all around me take me out take me now stay

yeah you’ve always been a little shy locked up deep inside they give a little give a little more ’til you’re hurting give a little give a little more ’til you’re hurt I know that you feel it all the time I know ’cause I feel the same inside I can’t help thinking that we might have got it wrong to sell ourselves to a future we can’t hold so you’ve always been a little tough as if you weren’t scared enough you give a little give a little more ’til they’re hurting give a little give a little more ’til they’re hurt you got me thinking and this feeling is magical and I want it all to stop

dragging my head through mud still I fight the beast with the least that still can fight in me crushing my bones on rocks I’ve been sunk before the scars remain as yesterday drag my hands through glass I feel nothingness... I feel nothing... breathing my air through dust still I fight the cure with the beast that still resides in me screaming my words to space there the silence waits to eat itself then dissipate hiding my face in light ’til I blind you all convince the world I don’t exist I feel nothing... I surrender take my heart away you’re so beautiful give my heart away you’re so beautiful on my knees but I’m willing take my armour I surrender now

hard top I can’t fight you I’m too tired sweetheart I can’t fight you it’s all too hard I curse the world today fight hard either way light shine through the pain burn all paths again let me know you’re there to rain come raining down and we’ll be back at one come rescue me shining like the sun sweetheart I adore you as much as I can I love everything about you but I curse the ground today fight hard lead the way straight on through the haze move on everyday let me know you’re here to rain don’t know what to say you won’t get my way hide my feelings so you won’t get control

she’s the one burning everything in sight she needs a touch where did we go wrong we’ll work it out fight until we think we’ve broke its spine work until we think we’ve got it right we’ll work it out it’s bound to happen soon... there’s still time working it out she’s so sick of the signs she can’t work all the pieces out of her mind every time that she speaks she can’t work all the pieces out so sick of the signs she can’t grab all the pieces she’s the one fighting all the way down town where’s the touch it all just feels the same we’ll work it out fight like hell until we break its spine work like hell to lift each other out we’ll work it out it’s bound to happen soon... if there’s time

I find on the one hand I’m tired out from keeping this secret I found it on the inside it’s about to be amended lights out on the long night the curse brings a family secret I think on the one hand it’s about the lost control we’ll go on and on away from here I find on the one hand I’ve tried long to bury this secret still on the other side I’m about to find control now saw a light on the far lake it cursed me it saw right through me enough silence I’m about to lose control we’ll go on and on away from here we’ll go on and on until we can’t see on until it starts to disappear it’s right there in front of you the first light on all of your secrets keeping it inside you you’re about to lose control now I feel it like the world’s weight so take me and crush me beneath your hand too long silent I’m about to lose control

every day at school is hell where you dream of being like someone else a target drawing help instead of blood where you shout hey I believe in what I have to believe in what I need to that everything is ok and you say everything you need to every time you want to ’til everything is ok hey hey every day at work is hell where you try to be a better sell living in the space you stare into where you shout hey I’m doing what I have to I’m doing what I need to ’til everything is ok and you say everything you want to everything you need to ’til everything is ok hey hey we all dream of being ourselves the hand that always seems to reach for someone else we never speak aloud in case we’re the only ones that cry hey even if I want to even if I need to I can never say hey everything I want to everything I need to to make these things ok hey hey
