I can hear the animals, talking 

I can hear the animals, talking

But they ain’t talking to me, are they talking to you?

If they ain’t talking to me, who they talking to?

 

I can hear electric lights, talking 

I can hear electric lights, talking

But they ain’t talking to me, are they talking to you?

No they ain’t talking to me, who they talking to?

 

I’m listening

I’m listening 

I'm listening in.

 

I can hear the dead of night, talking

I can hear the dead of night, talking 

But it ain’t talking to me, is it talking to you?

No it ain’t talking to me, who’s it talking to?

 

I’m listening

I’m listening 

I'm listening in.

 

I’m on fire

I’m under attack and

Its been a long lonely winter, I just want you back.

I know I saw you up there in the window in some shadows arms. 

And I’m down here where the howling winds blow cause I know...

 

I can hear the fear in me, talking 

I can hear the fear in me, talking

And it’s talking about me, and it talking about you

And it’s talking about me, can you hear it too?

LISTENING IN


GO OUT FIGHTING

Never give up

Go out fighting

Go out fighting

Go out fighting

Go out fighting

Never give up when you keep the secrets underneath your thumb

You can hide

Or you can be your own museum and shine

... when you tell lies

 

And in your ears and in your tongue you’re deaf and you’re done

You can cry

Or You can sing your silent requiem all night

when you go blind

go out fighting, go out fighting

Never give up

Go out fighting, go out fighting, go out fighting, go out fighting

Never give up

 

Everybody knows that feeling

Everybody knows desire

Now we’re coming down, down to the wire

Now we’re coming down, down to the wire

 

Never give up

Go out fighting, go out fighting, go out fighting, go out fighting


BUZZING IN THE LIGHT

Blue and gold, the color of the skies below

Only in the light, only in the light, of this world

Swarm of bees, they form a pillow under me 

They're buzzing in the light, buzzing in the light, of this world

 

I’m not alone in the mystery

I’m not alone in the mystery 

I’m not alone 

I feel at home in the mystery

 

Seems to me I’m watching someone else’s dream 

Only in the light, buzzing in the light, of this world

Solid gold, feeling of the sun below

Only in the light, I'm buzzing in the light, of this world

Buzzing in the light, I'm buzzing in the light, of this world

 

I’m not alone in the mystery

I’m not alone in the mystery

I’m not alone

I'm at home in the mystery, yeah


VIRGINIA PLEASE

Where have you been, Virginia?

There was a time when you stood by my side through dark and dire days

But now you’re cold and you’re cursing the word,

And now you’re throwing our love to the birds

Or is there somebody else you’re dreaming of

I used to think we could make it all the way

I used to carry our love in a fire safe

But now its gone and I'm a ghost

Baby look, why ain’t you calling me

I’ll give it up and you can have all of me

I don’t wanna go home

 

Walking around the same lines to get a taste of everlasting life

Like what we knew before

But now your momma dont want you with me

And now the apple aint far from the tree

You’re turning into a stone

But i still love you

Somebody show me if there’s another way

I never saved any love for a rainy day

The radio, another song

 

The radio, another song

 

Baby look, why ain’t you calling me

I’ll give it up, and you could have all of me

I don’t wanna go home

Climbing up into the fire escape

The lights are off

I’m nothing but i can wait

I don’t wanna go home

 

Virginia please I’m on my knees underwater

Virginia please I’m on my knees underwater

Virginia please I’m on my knees underwater

Virginia please I’m on my knees underwater

Virginia please I’m on my knees underwater

Virginia please


CRITICAL EQUATION

Warm front we had a ball

And we knew we had it good

Cabs to catch and shoes to fall

We called it what we could

Cold front the undertow

Easy come and easy go

That’s how the story blows for wires on a fence

 

It’s a critical equation

It’s the mother of the moon

And they are calling for a mixture

A little doom and gloom

 

Storm front rain will fall

In the eye and in the mud

Getting drunk on alcohol

Get ready for the flood

 

It’s a sensitive subject

For a criminal mind

So I’m taking my number

I’m getting out of line

 

It’s a critical equation

It’s a critical equation

It’s the mother of the moon

And they're calling for a mixture

A little doom and gloom

But it’s a sensitive subject

For a criminal mind

So I’m taking my number

I’m getting out of line

It’s a critical equation


I can’t understand this city and I don’t understand true love

And I’ve been under false impressions of even where I thought I was 

Heavy are the open hearted and heavy is the fate of love

Yet here I go from town to town just getting by on old true love

 

Lovesick in some backwoods bayou

Lovesick in town

Gonna need to call the CDC cause its going around

 

Arm in arm in armageddon 

Conjuring a tidal wave 

Standing on the cliffs and laughing

And running down the firescape 

Step ahead the rolling thunder. An army of returning doves

Heavy are the open hearted and heavy is the fate of love

 

Lovesick in some backwoods bayou

Lovesick in town

Gonna need to call the CDC cause its going around

They say that love is blind but you look good to me

And there’s a reason that I’m coming over and it ain’t up to me

 

True love

Is it any wonder darling that I don’t understand true love

Arm in arm in armageddon, conjuring our own true love

Step ahead of rolling thunder an army of our own true love

Heavy are the open hearted  and heavy is our own true love

There I was so free and lonely, innocent of all true love

Is it any wonder darling that I don’t understand true love

TRUE LOVE


You should see the way you walk, the way you cut your hair

You should hear what the neighbors say, the way the neighbors stare

Everyone’s got a different story but I got mine the hard way

Why’d I gotta go and give my heart to a heart killer

 

Heart killer (x5)

 

I can’t breathe when I hear your name

You’re in my veins and you’re eating my brain

 

I saw you dancing in the basement

You were miles away

Part of me wanted it all to burn and part of me wanted to stay

How could this be meant to be when what I want is dead to me

Why’d I gotta go and give my heart to a heart killer

 

Heart killer (x5)

 

I can’t breathe when your hear name

You’re in my veins and you’re eating my brain

You’re a heart killer

Heart killer (x5)

 

I can’t breathe when I hear your name

You’re in my veins and you’re eating my brain

 

Promises only broken

Spitting in my hand

We made a floor

We made a love

Castles made of sand

Baby you love like a love leaver,

Just a touch and it’s time to go.

Why’d i gotta go and give my heart to a heart killer

 

Heart killer (x5)

 

I can’t breathe when I hear your name

You’re in my veins and you’re eating my brain

You’re a heart killer

 

Heart killer (x5)

 

I can’t breathe when I hear your name

You’re in my veins and you’re eating my brain

 

Baby, baby can you save me

Save me baby, dig my grave

 

Heart killer (x5)

HEART KILLER


In a perfect world of my own design

I’d get rid of the sun in favor of the moonshine

And if the natural order were mine to define

The light in the tunnel would be a neon sign

 

Cause I’ve always loved the nighttime, it feels like mine

If it were only up to me

The sun would never ever shine

 

Well the moons invitation 

Is gentle and it’s kind

And it leaves everyone alone

And to me that is divine

With it’s modest demonstration

I feel so much less confined

And towards that kind of light

I will always be inclined

 

Cause ive always loved the nighttime, it feels like mine

If it were only up to me

The sun would never ever shine

 

If I could go out on a limb

And make so bold a leap

I’d tell the sun to go down and sink into the deep

 

Cause I've always loved the nighttime, it feels like mine

If it were only up to me

The sun would never ever shine

NIGHT


My father believe in the power and glory

And my mother believe in him

And I believe that the sun's gonna rise

No matter the shape I’m in

So I roll with the rolling thunder

And I howl with the howling wind

And I drift downstream for as long as it takes to get up and around the bend

Cause I tried so hard to make sense of it all and I’d be damned if I do it again

Yeah I’ll be damned if I do it again

 

Probably there’s someone greasing the wheel

Pointin it straight downhill

Oh no, right at me

 

Rain's gonna rain until Monday

And the sun's gonna shine in May

And in between my nights of dreaming 

I’ll find some way to spend the day

So I empty out all of my pockets

And throw everything away

And I can believe that life’s a breeze

Til I’m under the wheels again

Cause I tried so hard to make sense of it all and I’ll be damned if I’ll do it again

Yeah I’ll be damned if I do it again

 

Probably there’s someone greasing the wheel

Pointin it straight downhill

Oh yeah, right at me

 

And probably that someone greasing the wheel

and pointin it straight downhill,

Who can tell?

I can tell you. Its me.

 

Oh well, I can tell by the way the rain fell

That I’m under the wheels again

And now I believe cause it happened to me

 I’m under the wheels again

 

Oh well, I can tell by the way the rain fell

That I’m under the wheels again

Yeah, I’m under the wheels again

I’m under the wheels again

I’m under the wheels again

UNDER THE WHEELS


I can feel your fingertips somewhere in the distance

Feeling cataloged and broken down to code

But the form of my resistance is mine to control

And I’m following that wide open road

 

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

 

Well The days turn to decade

And tender took to stone

Next thing you know, you’re living like a fraud

How can we be forgotten by the only ones who know

I live to learn and I’ll learn to love by god

 

 

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

 

Lies of omission

Lies often told

Lies upon lies upon deception

And I’m lightning in a bottle

I’m crying inside

I can’t hide from the pain of reflection

 

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

 

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

Coming out of the darkness

Coming out of the dark

Get out the way

COMING OUT OF THE DARKNESS
