Simon

Time and time again
The words are messy and hard to read (you should take your time)
I'll give it a rest
But I've got plenty of pages left

The cold unfeeling pupils
Are staring back at me
Because they've been programmed on and off
Their pixels flash

The world empire strengthens
As voltage powers all
We shall fall as the world goes on the Internet

Leave it up to me
And I'll see everything comes out well (you should save your file)
I'll be finished soon
But if the system crashes, I'll resume

The hard drive has an ego
The circuit boards have won
Digits, too
But did you know we'll let them decide

Now, the world empire strengthens
As voltage powers all
We shall fall as the world goes on the Internet

Time and time again (time and time again)
The words are messy and hard to read (you should save your file)
I'll be finished soon
But when the system crashes, I'll resume

The cold unfeeling pupils
Are staring back at me
Because they've been programmed on and off
Their pixels flash

The world empire strengthens
As voltage powers all
We shall fall as the world goes on the Internet

Break it Off

Take a piece
And break it off
Leave the crust
The filling's gone
You take it and run
Now I'm here in the instance of regret
Without you there to save me
Am I the one
Who's supposed to save you now?
Well, I don't remember how
Take a piece
And break it off
Leave the crust
And kill yourself
You take it and run
Now I'm gripped in the instance of regret
Without you there to save me
Am I the one
Who's supposed to save you now?
Well, I don't remember how
No, I don't remember how
Well, I don't remember
I don't remember
I don't remember how

Candlewax

Cold la Vida virgin oil
And a crystal chandelier
Glass of her Dom Perignone
And my paper cup of beer

I got burned by the fire we started together
Cut the thread that kept us here forever

Do do do do do do do do do

Think of something nice to say
Add the mumbling from the singer
Everything's a darker shade
As the week now turns to gray

I got burned by the fire we started together
Cut the thread that kept us here forever

Do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do

I got burned by the fire we started together
Cut the thread that kept us here forever

I got burned by the fire we started together
Cut the thread that kept us here forever

Drink
Until you forget
Taste the fate of the rest
Won't you have one more glass?

Alone on a yacht
While the kids run amuck in the house
A bourbon and coke on a table of oak
As the boys lie awake in their beds

Drink
Until you forget
Taste the fate of the rest
Won't you have one more glass?

Drink
Until you forget
Taste the fate of the rest
Won't you have one more glass?

Remember what was
Sit back and enjoy
The buzz as your cells melt away

Turn up the TV
Take a load off your feet
As that same old great feeling kicks in (same old feeling kicks in)

Drink
Until you forget
Taste the fate of the rest
Won't you have one more glass?

Can You See Me Now?

Tell me, what do you see
When you look out the window
Lonely (k)night, left behind
Wonders if he should go

On the horizon tonight
Can you see me now?

It's me hoping to beat
Its evil cast of thousands

On the horizon tonight
Can you see me now?
Can you see me now?
Can you see me now?

Tell me, what do you see
When you look out the window
Lonely (k)night, left behind
He has lost his way

Can you see me now?
Can you see me now?

Every time you go
Don't wait up for me (can you see me now?)
Don't wait up for me (can you see me now?), I'm doing fine
Every time you go (can you see me now?)
Don't wait up for me (can you see me now?) because I'm alright

Asteroid G

Just what I needed
Some time to myself
Where I am bothered by nobody else
Well, sometimes I ponder over what might go wrong
I don't want to wander from where I now belong

Catch the comet and speed off
Catch the comet and speed off (leave today)
Leave the earth now and fly free
Come to Asteroid G (let's go to Asteroid G)

And so I end up a little worse than before
Having to scrape my broken heart off the floor
We're lost still, here by the curb
And if I can silence, she won't be disturbed

Catch the comet and speed off
Catch the comet and speed off (leave today)
Leave the earth now and fly free
Come to Asteroid G (let's go to Asteroid G)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Well, I'm going back (I'm going back)
To where I was once (where I was once)
I'm catching that comet
Be back in a month (back in a month)

Well, I'm going back (I'm going back)
To where I was once (where I was once)
I'm catching that comet (catching that comet)
So I can be free

So maybe I've found my place on this rock, I'll stay
So maybe I've found my place on this rock, I'll stay

Lava Light

This is not who I want to see
Their silent heads eyeing me
Drowning down into a faceful sea
This is not where I want to be

This is not like the days of old
When I come to hide from the cold
But rather a place I visit
Often faced with...

A mode to the left (never see a human again)
Clowns to the right
Something strange is here tonight
Drifting out further away from me
This is not where I want to be

This is not like the days of old
When I come to hide from the cold
But rather a place I visit
Often faced with...

I wish I could spend the night to hear you breathe and see the light
'Cause here there can be no one to destroy me

To destroy me
To destroy me
To destroy me

I wish I could spend the night to hear you breathe and see the light
'Cause here there can be no one to destroy me in the lava light

Recently Distressed

Dear Recently Distressed,
I am sorry to inform you that I lost your kid's address. You see my wings are on the fritz, I can't even get up off the ground. I'm really sorry for this mess 'cause it all came crashing down. Can I remember? Someone please tell me how to do my job or I'm out of work, speaking frankly you'll be out of luck.

Dear Recently Distressed,

So I Fall Again

I can't say if this feeling coming over me is real
But I know it's something you can't steal
So I'll buy another problem to approach
Sell a virgin lie that can't be touched

So I'll fall again
So I'll fall again
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

I can't say if this here f*cking subject should be dropped
But I know it's something you can't stop
So I'll buy another pick-up line and sigh
And pretend that everything is all right

So I'll fall again
So I'll fall again
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

So I'll fall again
So I'll fall again
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

Dying of Silence

So as I stand here dying of silence tonight
The quiet spell you slung at the ceiling fan
It will return again
Why?
I ask myself sometimes
Dine on small after school
Why?
I ask myself sometimes
So as the mood gets darker and darker tonight
Can't help but feel a little uncomfortable, alright?
It will return again
Why?
I ask myself sometimes
Dine on small talk after school
Why? (why?)
Why? (why?)
Why? (why?)
I ask myself sometimes
Why?
Why?
Why?

Last Glance

So the trouble starts as I look up and see I've stopped dead in my tracks
Seems that there is someone watching
She could tell when I was looking at her

I'm not ashamed to say (not ashamed to say)
It was whenever my eyes were open

Her ocean blue eyes once had stared at me before
Time swallows up the sand
She stares in my direction, yeah
I think she's got a guy
That's never stopped me before
But it won't happen again
I swear those glasses keep me guessing
Well, is she looking at me now?
I can't tell. I really can't be sure
But I'll still stare back at her

So I end up staring into artificial lenses staring back
A frame and two more eyes come between us
Hell, I don't know if she intended to stop the only hope I had left (hope that I had left)
I've lost, I'm sure she has the upper hand now

Her ocean blue eyes once had stared at me before
Time swallowed up the sand
She stares in my direction, yeah
I think she's got a guy
But something's stopping me more
And it won't happen again
I swear that last glance kept me guessing
Well, was she looking at me now?
I can't tell. I really can't be sure
But I'll still stare back at her

C'mon

And it won't happen again
I swear that last glance kept me guessing
Well, was she looking at me now?
I can't tell. I really can't be sure
But I'll still stare back at her
Her

Darker Shade

Oh, that the sun shone down today
Maybe then you'd see me
But 'til then there's one more day
Patiently I'll wait

Oh, that the sky was blue again
Maybe then I'll smile
Until then there's one more day
Patiently I'll wait

Spotlight on me
Now can you see there's something wrong
Tell me that there's something more
Darker shade of brown
Tell me that there's something more
Darker shade of brown

Oh, that my heart was cold as stone
Then you couldn't burn me
Until then I'll wait at home
Patiently alone

Spotlight on me
Now can you see there's something wrong
Tell me that you're something more
Darker shade of brown
Tell me that there's something more
Darker shade of brown

Ooh, ooh, ooh, aah, aah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, aah, aah
Whoo!

Spotlight on me
Now can you see there's something wrong
Tell me that you're something more
Darker shade of brown
Tell me that there's something more
Darker shade of brown

Bust a Move

More and more as time goes by youth'll slip away
But everywhere I want to go says I'm underage
Well, how was I to know that every time I twist and shout
I was losing to myself?

Well, come on and bust a move
As we dance we lose our innocence
Well come on, you're only good
Just because I fail at everything, whoo!
Come on and do what you wanna do
Just shake it loose and I'll be shakin' too

I wonder why as time goes by I just feel the same
Stuck in place, I'll wait so long just to feel so lame
Well, how was I to know that every time I twist and shout
I was losing to myself?

Well, come on and bust a move
As we dance we lose our innocence
Well come on, you're only good
Just because I fail at everything, whoo!
Come on and do what you wanna do
Just shake it loose
You shake it loose
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, yeah (yeah)
Whoo!

Come on and bust a move
As we dance we lose our innocence
Well come on, you're only good
Just because I fail at everything, whoo!
Come on and do what you wanna do
Just shake it loose
Well, shut up and dance and do what you wanna do
Just shake it loose
You shake it loose, don't you wanna
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, yeah

Please Apply Yourself to Me Sweetly

I am looking for an early warning
Listen to me please
Will you wake me up in the morning?
I am on my knees

Once I said that I had nothing, misunderstanding
I will try to follow wherever you go, yeah
Please apply yourself to me sweetly
I am gonna crash
Will you tell me if I am burning?
I was built to lash

Once I said that I had nothing, misunderstanding
I will try to follow wherever you go, yeah
Oh...oh...
Once I said that I had nothing, misunderstanding
I will try to follow wherever you go
And I (and I) will try (will try) to follow wherever you go, yeah

Rise the Setting Star

Dialogue:1, 2, 1, 2, 3

Watching a setting star
I lost myself in orbit
And a comet flew by as I went under
All of this angry space
I'm wasting all my time

I care that you don't know who you are
I can rise the setting star
And I am looking for a new way out

Watching a burning sun
I lost myself in your eyes
And a comet flew by as I went under
All of this angry space
I'm wasting all my time

I care that you don't know who you are
I can rise the setting star
And I am looking for a new way out

All of this angry space
I'm wasting all my time

I care that you don't know who you are
I can rise the setting star
And I am looking for a new way out

Devon's Rejection

vocals by Jacques

Yesterday within the smoke filled room
He was the king of fools
Everyone loved him just the same
Nothing mattered but the game

Look into the face of a demon
That changes from day to day
Nothing is as pure as new to her
Except her will to stay

Yesterday within the crowded(?) room
He meant nothing to you
Nobody cared to say his name
Everything mattered but the game

Look into the face of a demon
That changes from day to day
Nothing is as pure as new to her
Except her will to stay

Dialogue: [Alex]This is usually when the P.A. cuts out on us...This is invasion...invasion of the sunlight snatchers.
-[Someone] Yeah!

Invasion of the Sunlight Snatchers

All we did was talk about it
And all you ever said to me was how the accident was just a big mistake
(Ooh...) And so you'll get around it
Making sure I'll never know
But guess who'll laugh about it in a little while

You took it all from me
All I could see
Now the only scars that didn't stay were skin deep
You took it all from me
All I could see
Now the only scars that didn't stay were skin deep

(Ooh...)A flame there whispers gently
Swaying meekly in the wind
But when it swells and growls everything will singe
Gashes have importance
One that you can't understand
Now the prophecy is on the other hand

You took it all from me
All I could see
Now the only scars that didn't stay were skin deep
You took it all from me
All I could see
Now the only scars that didn't stay were skin deep

You took it all from me, all I could see
Aah...aah...
You took it all from me, all I could see
Now the only scars that didn't stay were skin deep

You took it all from me
All I could see
Now the only scars that didn't stay were skin deep

I'll keep the pain I have bottled inside (You took it all from me, all I could see)
But that doesn't mean that what you did was all right

Nightmare

There's a nightmare in my closet, never went away
And all the times I watched it slowly, growing up afraid
Who was scared to turn and look when I was safe in bed?
Was it there for me that had the ghastly monster's head?

If a nightmare in my closet really did exist
Who grew up and noticed that the other one was missed?
Who was scared to turn and look when I was safe in bed?
Was it there for me that had the ghastly monster's head?

Were you the creature?
Please won't you tell me?

There's a nightmare in my closet; it's never gone away
More and now I've noticed that I'm growing up afraid
Who was scared to turn and look when I was safe in bed?
Was it there for me that had the ghastly monster's head?

Grip

With your black-hair smile
And your dark-eye denial
You break me

With your sunglass mirrors
And your tank top liars
You break me

I won't let you break me down
I won't let you take me down

She's not worth it
She's not worth my time
Gave her everything
I gave her my pride

And now...
I'll take it back
And I'll take it all
I'll take it back
And I'll give it to someone else

I won't let you break me
I won't let you take me down to where I always fall
Into your palm I'll fall, into your palm I'll fall

[Someone singing] "I see the red door and I want to paint it black, oh yeah" (from The Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black")

Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird, here to stay is the new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll ask "are you married?"
We'll say "no man"
But you can do the job while you're in town

When it snows, ain't it thrillin'
Though your nose gets a chillin'
We'll frolic and play the Eskimo way
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
and pretend that he's a circus clown
We'll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman
Until the other kiddies knock him down

Later on, we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid the plans that we've made
Walking in a winter wonderland

Walking in a winter wonderland
Walking in a winter wonderland, oh, yeah
Walking in a winter wonderland
