Long time ago I waited for you Down on my knees in consecration Long time alone Still waiting for you now Hey you Great pretender Standing there With blood on your hands Oh Long time ago I waited for you Bound to believe in consequences Time to atone Don’t need to know you now Hey you Great pretender Standing there With blood on your hands Hey you Great defender Standing there With love in your hands Oh And I want you To never let me out of your sight Always take me home after midnight It’s a dark delight And I want you To never let me out of your sight Always take me home after midnight It’s a dark delight Hey you Great pretender Standing there With blood on your hands Hey you Great defender Standing there With love in your hands Oh Saving me Saving you Saving everyone Saving

This dirty truth What do you want to believe? Out of your hands into the voting machine Just think about Think about mmmmm This filthy truth What do you want to believe? Putting your hands into the voting machine Just think about Think about mmmmm You can stick me in the ground Plant a cross for me Say that you were lost and found Save a soul for me You can try and take the hill Like a dead man walking Bribe me with a bill Keep it all The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine This burning truth What do you want to achieve? Counting your hands into the voting machine Just think about Think about mmmmm Wave your placards in the air You can march for me Clap your hands as if you care Make a fool of me You can hide behind a wall Wear a mask for me You can fight another war For democracy Gonna cut you with a tax Like a razor blade Keep the corporations fat Gonna keep you laid Twist the law and break the strike Dictator calling The land of the free Keep it all The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine The voting machine If you want it then you have to promise me a future

I don't know ‘bout tomorrow I know what’s today Blow each other to pieces You can't walk away I don't know the answer I don't know the truth Blow each other to pieces Is that what they’ll do Their lies are repeated Truth driftin’ away Blow them all to pieces I know what is happenin’ What more can I say Blow each other to pieces That's not the way You are the hero Desolation unwind I walk through the needle Nirvana to find God really defeated We have to rewind Blow each other to pieces

This time is gonna be the last time Is gonna be the last time that you see me What you see is what you get No need to smoke that cigarette You truly are magnificent to me Won’t you tell me everything How you got that wedding ring Why you gave your loneliness to me This time is gonna be the last time Is gonna be the last time that you see me cry What you think is what you get I live my life with no regret It was a stroke of serendipity Crazy waiting patiently You shut me out so silently What a waste I don’t forget a thing This time is gonna be the last time Is gonna be the last time that you see me cry What you want is want is what you get Use your words like a bayonet Don’t believe the drunken word you say A violin don’t pay the rent All you do is circumvent Need to feed your insecurity This time is gonna be the last time Is gonna be the last time that you see me This time is gonna be the last time Is gonna be the last time that you see me cry See me cry See me cry See me cry See me cry See me cry See me cry See me cry

Everything 01:35
I tried to do my best
I gave you everything Everything No one can hurt you You’ll never die Hold you forever Deep in my life Everything
6.
I look to a different story One covered and crowned in glory Without you the dark surrounds me Makes me feel cold and lonely You’re all that I want You’re all that I need Shine the light on me Mechanical replication The power of our creation A lover that can’t embrace me The truth is a light that blinds me You’re all that I want You’re all that I need Shine the light on me So what did you say now? And what did you say? You can’t be in love with her Because you, you, you don’t, you don’t have me You’re supposed to love me You’re supposed to need me I, I am your everything, don’t you know that? ‘Cause I am you, and you are me The beauty of life surrounds me You are the one that found me Splendiferous isolation You are my constellation You’re all that I want You’re all that I need Shine the light on me Shine the light on me Shine the light on me Shine the light on me
7.
The Coat 04:05
You told me you were leaving I asked you if you wanted your coat Or are you gonna leave it behind? You didn’t give a reason You didn’t say a word You just kept staring at your coat Won’t you tell me something to make me feel alright Won’t you give me something to take the edge off the bite Your clothes felt unfamiliar You looked the same but everything had changed And it wasn’t the light Won’t you tell me something to make me feel alright Won’t you give me something to take the edge off the bite ‘Cos I don’t know where you go What you need or do you know my name I don’t wanna let you go Let you feel like you’re alone You are my life! I love to watch you sleeping You’re so beautiful Warmed by the sunlight Won’t you tell me something to make me feel alright Won’t you give me something to take the edge off the bite
8.
Mother 01:13
Ahhhhh Mother, Mother, Mother can’t you see? Mother, Mother can’t you see? Can’t you see? Can’t you see?
9.
A part of me is broken Only got yourself to blame The profit and the preacher Gonna make you great again Don't get me started This is what I say I’m talkin’ about yeah A part of me is broken All about the great divide Guilty book of promises Dangerous and dirty lies Don't get me started This is what I say I’m talking about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah A part of me is broken Never gonna understand The mighty fall together Living in a wonderland Don't get me started This is what I say I’m talking about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah Talkin’ about yeah You’re somebody being someone else And I will never know you A parody of borrowed skin A sequinned hat A battered tin Enamel flaking off your lips From rusty words And broken hinge Bend the knee to polarising confusion Stelliferous era of sparkling delight What more do you need? What more do you want? The legacy of memory eroded by dementia Replaced, replaced by the fallacy of eternal youth In the flicker of an eye time will forget you ever existed and move along With no teary heart or regretful dreams because time does not remember It just moves forward like an iceberg through space Cold hard darkness And the planets spin, the planets tilt and one day the stars will all burn out And the night will be forever dark But for now we live!
