You get to feel so guilty, got so much for so little
Then you find that feeling just won’t go away
You’re holding on to every little thing so tightly
‘Til there’s nothing left for you anyway
You wanted to get somewhere so badly
You had to lose yourself along the way
You change your name, well that’s okay, it’s necessary
And what you leave behind you don’t miss anyway
You can keep this suit of lights
I’ll be up with the sun
I’m not coming down
‘Cause I’m already gone
Felt that way all along
Closer to you every day
I didn’t want it that much anyway
You’re taking steps that make you feel dizzy
Then you learn to like the way it feels
You hurt yourself you hurt your lover
Then you discover
What you thought was freedom is just greed
And it’s emotional
Good night…
I’ll be up with the sun
You’re still holding on
I’m not coming down

  1. Drawn, quartered o’er the loamy mire
    Never meant to end up here
    Not my fate, not this time, never again
    Had I heart left for this..
    Enjoy your freedom, enjoy your greed
    Enjoy everything you find you need
    As some find, even own words are not worth heed
    Trod the bracken underfoot, stay not amongst the reed
    This wasteland of endless sorrow I shall not feed
    Not with this verse of endless need
    On all I wish a brightened ‘morrow
    Past this darkened scrubland, there seems naught left to borrow
    Following the winding trail into the forest
    Looking for answers, no fruit on these trees
    Lost the path, made anew, greatest certainty slain
    Found the void, never up, never forward..
    Never down.

  2. Bad
    If you twist and turn away.
    If you tear yourself in two again.
    If I could, yes I would
    If I could, I would let it go.
    Surrender, dislocate.
    If I could throw this lifeless life-line to the wind.
    Leave this heart of clay, see you walk, walk away
    Into the night, and through the rain
    Into the half light and through the flame.
    If I could, through myself, set your spirit free
    I’d lead your heart away, see you break, break away
    Into the light and to the day.
    To let it go and so to find away.
    To let it go and so find away.
    I’m wide awake.
    I’m wide awake, wide awake.
    I’m not sleeping.
    If you should ask, then maybe
    They’d tell you what I would say
    True colours fly in blue and black
    Blue silken sky and burning flag.
    Colours crash, collide in blood-shot eyes.
    If I could, you know I would
    If I could, I would let it go.
    This desperation, dislocation
    Separation, condemnation
    Revelation, in temptation
    Isolation, desolation
    Let it go and so to find away
    To let it go and so to find away
    To let it go and so to find away
    I’m wide awake, I’m wide awake, wide awake
    I’m not sleeping
    Oh no, no, no.
