Ride On

Ride on

Into the sun

Far from here

And everyone

 

When God

Or some phenomenon

Brings us here

Too far above

 

I'll believe in anything

(Ride on)

If it gets me what I want

(Ride on)

I don't believe in anything

(Ride on)

That isn't nearly gone

 

 

I'll believe

In anything

If it gets me

Out of here

 

We're breathing out

We're giving in

We're upside down

And in-between

 

 

Wild Life

Hard times

Summer blue

Traffic flies by

But no-one's moving

 

Hard lives

August moon

Refuse to shine

Until the day is through

 

And

 

I can see this wildlife breaking down

We come and go

In the same old routine that has become

All we need or know

 

Still life

Familiar roads

Time will stop

But we keep going

 

Broken glass

Empty news

We're playing games

But we keep losing

 

I can see this wildlife breaking down

We come and go

In the same old routine that has become

All we need or know

 

Hard rain

Cloud-break sky

Will wash away

Everything you're hiding

 

Tired lives

We play the fool

While other lives

Depend on you now

 

I can see this wildlife breaking down

We come and go

In the same old routine that has become

All we need or know

 

Close to the Edge

Sometimes wrapped in velvet

These blue-remembered hills

I remember everything that

You ever did

 

Breaking falls it feels like failure

In absolution games

We fought to be where we were standing

And then you just threw it away

 

I remember the places

Where I walked as a child

Falling still in the centre-field

Underneath the darkening sky

We ran through open fields

I'd take your hand again

We were running too far from home

And too close to the edge

 

And now you feel like nothings working

And you turn to leave

There is no relevance

In the memory

 

You turned to blunt ambition

I turned into me

There is no evidence

Of our history

 

I remember the places

Where I walked as a child

Falling still in the centre-field

Underneath the darkening sky

We ran through open fields

I'd take your hand again

We were running too far from home

And too close to the edge

 

 

Caroline

She's been waiting

For the sun to shine

In the ether

She fails to climb

 

Oh Caroline

 

She was a beacon

All out to sea

She is falling

And suffering

 

In the mornings

Tired and blind

She files away the weakness

She's holding back the time

 

Oh Caroline

 

She is lost

And completely blind

She turns her back on

The love she will not find

 

Oh Caroline

 

 

Heaven Knows

Take away the illusion

And let me see with my own eyes

Been sitting here for far too long

Wasting away my time

 

Take away the confusion

Give me some clarity of mind

I dig too deep; I can't seem to sleep

Pretending everything is fine

 

Heaven knows

Where I go from here

 

Take away the delusion

And the suffering in kind

The sun has gone - I'm all alone

No power in the power lines

 

Bring me back the expectation

That every word is not a lie

Can't seem to see, but I believe I will be

Feeling better any time

 

Heaven knows

Where I go from here

 

Take away the commotion

Let us have silence for a change

Can't seem to feel; the wound will not heal

Every day is now the same

 

Bring to me some new direction

Every moment is now the same

Between two lines; running out of time

I move on - I do not care

 

Heaven knows

Where I go from here

 

Take away the delusion

And the suffering in kind

The sun has gone - I'm all alone

No power in the power lines

 

Bring me back the expectation

That every word is not a lie

Can't seem to see, but I believe I will be

Feeling better any time

 

Heaven knows

Where I go from here

 

 

 

Field of Dreams

Here life

Reflected by the signs on the road

 

Entangled in

The light the morning sun promises

 

In my sleep

I dream the dream within the dream

 

I awake

I swear I can hear that voice again

 

The sun is brighter now and I can feel the warmth

I see my whole life disappear

In the silence of a million unkempt days

The field of dreams is not far away

 

I am in

A summer sunlit field of childhood dreams

 

I can see

The shadows falling over me

 

Moving to

The movement that pulls you from the blue

 

I can dream

Of all the things I am you cannot see

 

The sun is brighter now and I can feel the warmth

I see my whole life disappear

In the silence of a million unkempt days

The field of dreams is not far away

 

This Is Not Enough

I'm out of the cold

I'm out of the dark

I am rising

The wind lifts me up

 

I'm up in the air

I'm up in the clouds

Out of control

Spinning around

 

I can see

Everything

Stretched beneath me

In this moment I believe

 

I'm touched by angels

I can feel their wings

A thousand souls

Are passing right through me

 

I have no fear

Of binding light

I'm passing through these

Hundred thousand lives

 

I speak with the tongue

Of my dead love

Words on the wind

Say "this is not enough"

 

This is not enough

 

99 Degrees Fahrenheit

My hollow hand

That dreamed of never

Is breaking undefined

 

The lightening strike

This heavy weather

Is running for to find

 

The black crow soul

That left whenever

I've never been so blind

 

Holy man

Can you give me a tip now?

Do I stand outside of time?

 

Here we are, we stand in line

Preying for some sacred sign

We keep running and hiding from time

Believe anything is alright

It's so easy to believe in lies

Than to stand for what is what is right

Here we are; we stand in line

99 degrees fahrenheit

 

River man

Give me some belief now

Help me understand

 

This stone wall world

Was never better

The cracks in the conscience are mine

 

Holy man

Give me strength now

Are we standing on the line?

 

These hollow hands

That birds have flown from

Are held up to the sky

 

Here we are, we stand in line

Preying for some sacred sign

We keep running and hiding from time

Believe anything is alright

It's so easy to believe in lies

Than to stand for what is what is right

Here we are; we stand in line

99 degrees fahrenheit

 

 

 

I Remember

I remember

I remember all too well

How we seemed to be

It didn't seem like delusion to me

In the rain

In the rain

 

We were blinded by the neon lights

And today

And today

 

I remember

A simple exchange

Bleeding innocence

In the heart of the day

And these days

These days

 

Well, I'm standing by to leave one night

Far away

Fire away

 

We turn for home

We break and we're gone

We cover our tracks

And try to find our way back

 

I remember

Simple words

That scratched at the surfaces

And that's all you ever were

That's all you ever were

All you ever were

 

You hide behind the sweetest smile

I'll never learn

 

Do you remember

How I fell

Falling down to my knees

I fall so well

I fall so well

 

I'm tired of this mess

I'm getting up again

Getting up again

 

How could it be?

I was taken in by insignificant things

How could it have been?

You were not illusion to me

How far we fall

Before we take account of it all

We turn to go

 

And try to make it home

 

 

 

I Have Been Here Before

Time lingers on

I know you're waiting too

For the colour of the sun

To shine on you

 

And I think I recognise

The contours of these times

I've covered every corner

And crossed every line

 

And I will be waiting

In the blue grey steel of dawn

One day you'll raise your head up

I've been here before

 

And out along the dead sky

Silver angels sing

"Yesterdays are burning

Tomorrow is everything"

 

The flightless birds are rising

And darkness falls again

Paper hearts are breaking

In this, the bitter end

 

And I will be waiting

In the blue grey steel of dawn

One day you'll raise your head up

I've been here before

 

And I will be waiting

In the blue grey steel of dawn

One day you'll raise your head up

I've been here before
