Say You'll Stay 

Hey

Where did it go wrong?

From moving stone

to getting along

Say you'll stay 

when the lights are low

til' I'm gone 

Hey 

Did you pay your loan?

Or lose it all 

to rock n' roll? 

Say you'll stay 

when I need you most

til' I'm gone

Don't face the night 

and give into it 

Take what you can 

cause this is it 

Oh this is it

So don't face the night 

and give into it 

Take what you can,

what you can babe!

Automaton 

Rolling 

Learning to languish 

on your own 

Steady 

Like the stones 

that you used to throw

So I said 

Won't you get in my head! 

Automaton 

You're surreal 

and all the souls that you steal

are far from your heart

 

So I wish you riches

Just to see what comes next

Honest ambitions

Fuck me like the rest

 

So I said

Meet me up ahead

Like last time

Cause it's in vain 

Are you listening?

Cause I'm not

and I'll see you at the start

Baby Come On Home

When your baby 

packs up and leaves you 

You see her train 

disappear of sight 

What would you give? 

If you had the power

to hold back that lonely night

I used to take

her lips for granted 

All her kisses tasted the same 

Now she's gone 

and what I wouldn't give 

Just to see her

and hear her call out my name again 

Baby come on home 

Here comes one more lonely night

I'm praying baby come on home 

You know I love you

Im crying baby come on home 

Here comes one more lonely night 

I'm praying baby come on home 

You know I stay loving you

See Through

Pack up your contraband

and lace up your boots

Light your cigarette and say goodbye 

Smokestack's calling you 

Cause you ain't seen the sunshine since

you became see through 

And when the west end is calling out 

Nobody's looking for you

Did you lacerate your ties to life 

or did you blow them away?

Cause I hope when your in that hole 

they're gonna paint you grey 

And I hope that peace of mind 

Slips away 

So you can keep it all to yourself 

and I don't lose my way 

So when did you get so goddamned see through?

What Did You Say?

The sky is on fire 

The blood is turning blue 

The kids are dying 

I'm trying to get to you 

but you're not there 

And I'm swimming upstream 

All I want to know is 

what you mean

 

So tell me!

What did you say?

 

When will they stop

getting high? 

Ain't no heroes 

not in my eyes

Tell the truth

for a start

Don't pull yourself apart 

Lend a hand

Be brave

It's never too late to save yourself!

What did you say?

Where did you go?

Am I your friend? 

Did you sell your soul?

Come Along Quietly

Well you said that you've found

what you're looking for!

Now that you've come from 

Come from away 

And you said that summer 

is the season that you're giving

But last year you said the same 

Oh I can't understand what you want 

And I won't hold your hand 

and come along quietly 

All through the haze 

Your eyes cut like razors 

I guess you can say

that you're looking sharp

And just like the king needs an executioner

I'm cutting heads for you in the dark

 

Oh I can't understand what you want

And I won't hold your hand

and come along quietly

So I hope that you hear this 

and I pray that you will listen 

Because I won't be around for long 

A life lived in fear

ain't a life that's worth living

Only you know right from wrong  

As You Smile

Your hands are tired 

your heart is worn

We walk past the houses 

where you were born 

But into the night 

you'll feel okay 

Patiently waiting 

for someday 

As you smile 

Well it's so sweet

It's all alright you're so discreet 

Holding your own 

is giving you hope 

It's all alright you're so discreet

Quiet and lonely are your escape 

You're passively shying away 

But into the night 

you'll feel okay 

Patiently waiting 

for someday 

As you smile 

Well it's so sweet 

It's all alright you're so discreet 

Holding your own 

is giving you hope 

It's all alright you're so discreet 

Hey !

As you smile 

Well it's so sweet 

It's all alright you're so discreet 

Holding your own 

is giving you hope 

We're making our way 

through the snow 

 

Cut My Teeth

Excuse me have you got it all ?

Do you hate it?

Are you feeling it?

Did you say you needed a hand?

Are you tired of carrying shit?

Can you deal with aggravation?

Do the people love you?

How many times must I repeat myself?

When still nobody is listening 

Do you feel like you're slipping away?

 

Believe me

I've heard it all before

And I know that I'm naive 

So why do I care

when I know your heart?

For you I cut my teeth

Tired 

Lonely 

Waiting for you 

Pissed off 

Hungry 

Is that enough?

So believe me

I heard it!

And I know that I'm naive 

So why do I care 

when I know your heart?

For you I cut my teeth

The Other Side

You'll open the door 

And you don't know what for 

Are you waiting for something?

If it ain't alright

Don't let up the fight 

In a matter of time they're going to get you 

So if you need a friend 

And this feels like the end 

Get out while you can 

Alright!

Ok! 

Have I got your attention?

On your radio?

Backs to the wall

Do you recall

stealing away as you do?

But now the lights have turned on 

the reflections in my mind

Pray you don't get caught 

for all of the thoughts you hide inside 

Cause we ain't got long 

Oh, it's almost dawn 

and I will see you on the other side 

This is my last fucking goodbye 

before I'm home 

I will see you 

When I Was a Young Man

When I was a young man

I used to run

I used to fight for

Just for fun

And I didn't care

And you weren't there

And now that I'm older

I miss the sea

And I'm done fighting 

For your glory 

And your gain

Through the window pain

So hear my story 

I want to be free

I want to be me 

I want you to see that's there's more 

So much more

Than what you know
