BIG WHITE ROOM



HURT ME? WELL I CAN HURT ME SOME MORE,

FIND ME? I PUSHED MY FACE INTO THE SAND.

AND THROUGH THE GLASS I SAW THEM FORMING,

(START TO BE DRAWN)

THROUGH THE GLASS I SAW THEM FADE, (DISAPPEAR)

AND THROUGH THE GLASS I HEARD THEM TALKING,

BUT I DON'T WANNA TRY,

CLOSE MY EYES,

MOVE THEM AWAY,

THE BIG WHITE ROOM...

NOW I'M CLOSING, (SHUTTING DOWN)

I'VE BUILT THIS CASTLE IN THE SAND. (KEEPS ME WARM)

LOOK AROUND ME, (ON THE FLOOR),

THERE'S ICY WATER ALL AROUND

BUT ALL THROUGH THE GLASS I HEARD THEM LAUGHING,

THROUGH THE GLASS I SAW THEM PLAY,

AND THROUGH THE GLASS I WATCHED THEM DANCING

(STAY ON THE FLOOR),

BUT I DON'T WANT TO SEE,

CLOSE MY EYES,

SOMEHOW I JUST GOTTA FIND,

THE BIG WHITE ROOM...

REACHING OUT THE GLASS IS CLOSING IN,

I'M GONNA,

REACH ON OVER TO THE,

TO THE OTHER SIDE,

AND CLUTCH IN THE MIRROR,

GONNA SEE THE LIGHT FORMULATE,

I'M GONNA TRY!

AND THROUGH THE GLASS THE PICTURES CLEARING,

(CLEANING AWAY)

THROUGH THE GLASS THE IMAGE FADES...

THE BIG WHITE ROOM.

ARE YOU,

THE BIG WHITE ROOM?

I'M GONNA WATCH THEM FADE,

I'M GONNA TURN AWAY...







BROKEN FINGERS



BROKEN FINGERS ARE TAKING ALL THE STRAIN,

I CAN OFFER MYSELF NO MORE,

BROKEN BODY IS FEELING ALL THE WEIGHT,

I CAN DRAW WITH THESE HANDS NO MORE,

CANNOT KEEP THIS UP,

DIRECTIONS GONE,

FIND ME THE DOOR,

BROKEN BODY IS TAKING ALL THE STRAIN,

I CAN STAND ON MY OWN NO MORE,

CAN YOU HEAR?

IT'S ME!

CAN YOU HEAR?

WHERE DO GET OFF?

GET AWAY!

CLIMB ON OVER THE TRAPPINGS OF THIS MIND,

YOU LEAVE IT TO ME,

THINKING OVER THE STRUGGLE OF THE STAIRS,

CAN YOU OFFER YOUR HAND TO ME?

BUT PACING ROUND IN CAGES,

WATCHING YOU CRAWL,

YOUR CLIMBING THE WALLS!

BROKEN BODY TAKING ALL THE STRAIN,

I CAN OFFER MYSELF NO MORE...

CAN YOU HEAR?

IT'S ME!

CAN YOU HEAR?

WHERE DO YOU GET OFF?

    SLOW MOTION DYING...

    SLOW MOTION BURN ME...

        CATCH MY WEIGHT I'M FALLING!

IT'S DRIPPING RED ALL DOWN MY...OH,

FRAGMENT AND SCATTER TO THE PALE...



BROKEN FINGERS ARE TAKING ALL THE STRAIN,

I CAN DRAW WITH THESE HANDS NO MORE,

BROKEN BODY, IS TAKING ALL THE WEIGHT,

BEFORE I FALL...







SHE KNOWS



SHE'S SPINNING UP AND UP IN CIRCLES NOW,

CRASH INTO THE WALL,

TAKE ANOTHER DEEPER BREATH,

YOUR QUICKENING HEART, IS CATCHING YOUR FALL,

MAKES ANOTHER GRAB FOR HANDS, ADDLED MIND,

TRIP DOWN THE HALL,

SHE'S STUMBLING OVER TRASH,

'CAUSE SHE KNOWS,

FELL DOWN TO THE FLOOR, SHE'S DOWN BY MY FEET,

GONNA TAKE A SPIRAL DOWN, HER HEAD'S ALIGHT,

I'M STILL ON MY FEET,

SHE CRAWLS DOWN THE HALLWAY,

AND I'M GLUED TO THE FLOOR,

I CAN SCREAM NOW, 'CAUSE I CATCH YOUR FALL!

AND NOW THAT IT'S COME AROUND TO THIS,

MIGHT AS WELL STAY AWHILE

'CAUSE...SHE KNOWS!

TAKE A LITTLE TIME, DON'T YOU WORRY,

YOU CAN STAY HERE WITH ME,

PUSHING YOU FURTHER IN THE CORNER,

TIE YOUR FACE TO THIS TREE,

WATCHING YOU TUG AT YOUR EMOTIONS,

TIE YOURSELF UP IN KNOTS,

WELL I KNOW HOW THAT FEELS, TALK TO YOURSELF!

NOW THAT IT'S COME AROUND TO THIS, MIGHT AS WELL STAY AWHILE,

'CAUSE SHE KNOWS!

    ...WELL EVERYTHING'S, A PART OF ME, HOLD IT UP, AND YOU WILL SEE,

    TURN IT ROUND, AND ISOLATE, NO GAPS IN, THE TIME YOU WASTE...

SPINNING UP AND ROUND IN CIRCLES NOW,

CRASH INTO THE WALLS,

TAKE ANOTHER DEEPER BREATH, YOUR QUICKENING HEART,

IS CATCHING YOUR FALL,

LOOKING UP OVER, DIG BENEATH YOUR FEET,

THE FLOOR IS A MESS,

GOTTA CLIMB OUT OF THIS 'CAUSE NOW YOU KNOW THAT...

NOW THAT IT'S COME AROUND TO THIS, MIGHT AS WELL TAKE MY HAND

'CAUSE, SHE KNOWS!

(YOU KNOW, SHE KNOWS!)







HAS AND TO DO



WHAT HAS ONE TO DO?

REACH THROUGH YOUR SKIN,

TO RECOGNISE YOU,

WHAT HAS ONE TO DO?

UNDERSTAND, THE WAY I WAS WITH YOU, BUT...



YOU'VE GOT A LOT TO LEARN,

IT'S TRUE...



WHAT HAS ONE TO DO?

REACH THROUGH YOUR LONELINESS AND,

I, TRY AND GET TO YOU,

WHAT HAS ONE TO DO?

UNDERSTAND,

I TRIED TO GET TO YOU, BUT,



YOU'VE GOT A LOT TO LEARN,

IT'S TRUE!

I TRIED TO, GET TO YOU,

IT'S TRUE!



WHAT HAS ONE TO DO?

REACH THROUGH YOUR DARKNESS,

AND BURST OUT SHINING BLUE,

WHAT HAS ONE TO DO?

COVERED UP AND SMILING BLIND,

I RUN AWAY FROM YOU...



YOU'VE GOT A LOT TO LEARN,

IT'S TRUE...

I TRIED TO,

GET TO YOU...

IT'S TRUE...







STAY



EVER BEEN TO NOWHERE PLACE?

I SPENT SOME TIME BEFORE,

A FACELESS AND A NAMELESS PLACE,

WITHOUT NO WINDOWS OR NO DOORS,

WHERE YOUR NAME IS OF NO CONSEQUENCE,

WHERE NOTHING IS FOR SURE,

WHERE CARE OR NOT ABOUT YOURSELF,

YOU'LL COME ACROSS ANOTHER WALL...

HOW DO YOU TAKE IT AWAY?

'CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO STAY...

EVER LIVED IN CARELESS PLACE?

I WENT THERE ONCE BEFORE,

A DANGEROUS AND SUPPRESSIVE SPACE,

WHERE OUT YOUR STUMBLING,

ROUND THE WALLS,

WHERE CARE NOT FOR THE CONSEQUENCE,

YOUR ACTIONS ARE NOT YOURS,

WHERE KNOW OR NOT ABOUT THE EDGE,

YOU'LL PUSH YOURSELF AND FALL...

HOW DO YOU TAKE IT AWAY?

'CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO STAY...

    AND DEEPER STILL IN NOTHINGNESS,

    SURPRISED YET STILL, TO NOTICE THIS,

    ALTHOUGH IT TURNS AROUND EACH TIME,

    IT'S REAL ENOUGH TO SLOW YOUR MIND,

    AND SHIFTING STILL I SEE IT CHANGE,

    SEE IT BLOW AWAY,

    SEE IT SHIFT AND CHANGE...

HOW DO YOU TAKE IT AWAY?

'CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO STAY

'CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO STAY...







SICK ON WORDS



IN MY SPACE,

LEAVE NO TRACE,

OF WASTING TIME, WITHIN,

AND NOW I CHANGE,

FORM IN THE RAIN,

BREATH IN CLOSE,

DREAM...

UM-NOW A MESS-AGE IS FORM-ING WORDS U,

UPON THE FLOOR AND I FIND THAT I DRINK,

DRINK

ING ON, SICK ON WORDS,

DRINKING ON, SICK ON WORDS,

DRINKING ON...

NOW I, CAN SEE THEM THERE,

WHERE TO REACH, WHERE TO?

TAKE THIS DRUG,

MOVE THIS SPACE,

TO MY MIND, NEED,

TAKEN TIME,

SLOW MY MIND,

CLEARING THE PATH, GROWING...

I'M NOW A MESS-AGE IS FORM-ING WORDS, U,

UPON THE FLOOR AND I FIND THAT I DRINK,

DRINKING ON, SICK ON WORDS,

DRINKING ON, SICK ON WORDS,

DRINKING ON, SICK ON WORDS,

NOW I CAN SEE THEM THERE,

WHERE TO REACH, WHERE TO?

RIDE THE WAVES OF MIND,

RIDE THE WAVES OF MIND,

UM NOW A MESS-AGE IS FORM-ING WORDS, U,

UPON THE FLOOR AND I FIND THAT I DRINK,

DRINKING ON SICK ON WORDS,

DRINKING ON SICK ON WORDS...

REACH OUT FOR THIS,

REACH OUT FOR THIS...

IN MY SPACE,

IN MY SPACE.







HIDE



YOU TOLD ME, YOU WANT ME,

AND NOW YOU, YOU'RE LEAVING,

I'M LAUGHING,

YOUR CRYING,

I'M DRUNK AND, YOU'RE SOBER...



HIDE, AND YOU HIDE AND WE HIDE...

WHAT WE GOT INSIDE.



YOU TOLD ME, YOU LOVE ME,

AND NOW YOU, YOU KILL ME,

I'M LAUGHING, YOU'RE CRYING,

I'M DRUNK AND YOU'RE SOBER,

YOU SHARPENED YOUR HOOK AND,

I'M DRUNK AND YOU'RE SOBER...



HIDE, AND YOU HIDE, AND WE HIDE, AND YOU HIDE,

AND I HIDE, AND YOU HIDE, AND WE HIDE,

WHAT YOU GOT INSIDE...

YOU DON'T, YOU LEAVE ME ANYMORE, WELL,

YOU DON'T, YOU LEAVE ME ANYMORE, WELL,

IT'S OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER,

OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN,

WELL, IT'S OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER,

OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!

YES, IT'S OVER AGAIN,

IT'S OVER AGAIN!

IT'S OVER AGAIN!

IT'S OVER AGAIN!

IT'S OVER AGAIN!

HIDE,

AND YOU HIDE, AND WE HIDE, AND I HIDE, AND YOU HIDE,

AND WE HIDE, AND YOU HIDE, AND I HIDE, AND YOU HIDE,

AND WE HIDE, AND YOU HIDE, AND I HIDE, AND YOU HIDE, AND WE HIDE...

WHAT YOU GOT IN,

WHAT WE GOT IN,

GOT INSIDE, GOT INSIDE, GOT INSIDE...







LEARN TO LEARN



NOW IF I WERE TO CATCH THIS MOMENT,

I'D BE STORING MYSELF IN A JAR,

THAT I SAW LONG AGO ON YOUR WINDSILL,

IT REFLECTED THE MOON AND THE STARS,

AND INSIDE THAT SMALL WORLD I WAS SAFE THERE,

KEEPING SMALL IN THE DARK WHERE IT'S WARM,

WHERE THE AIR IT STAYS STILL,

LIKE YOUR HEARTBEAT,

WHERE IT'S TOO CLOSE AND WARM TO CARE...



IS THIS A LESSON TO LEARN?...



IN THE DARK PLACE I CAN'T FIND THE WINDOW,

AND I CAN'T FIND THE GAPS IN THE WALLS,

AND I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND THE REFLECTION,

AND I CAN'T BREAK THE ACHE THERE TO BURN,

BUT THE STRENGTH, THAT I FEEL ON THE INSIDE,

COMES IN HAND WITH THE WEAKNESS I KNOW,

AND THE LOSS THAT WAS FELT ON THE INSIDE,

IS THE REASON TO STAND ON YOUR OWN...



IS THIS A LESSON TO LEARN?



CANNOT SPEAK IN RIDDLES,

THOUGH I TRY HARD TO SAY,

COMES OUT THAT WAY... THAT WAY...



IS THIS A LESSON TO LEARN?

IS THIS A LESSON TO LEARN?







SMILE



IN THIS TOWN WHERE THE STREETS NEVER CHANGE AND,

PEOPLE WALK AROUND WITH NOTHING TO SAY,

I WALK THE ROAD AND I LOOK AT THE FLOOR

BECAUSE THERE THE SKIES ALWAYS GREY,

THERE ARE MARKETS AND PEOPLE,

MEN SELLING FLOWERS, COFFEE SHOPS WITH WINDOWS,

TO WHILE AWAY THE HOURS,

YOU WERE LOST, YOU WERE LOST,

IN YOUR OWN INSECURITY...



SEND YOUR SMILE,

BE HAPPY, BE WITH ME,



NOW I'M SITTING, AND I'M LOOKING AT THE FLOOR,

AND I'M THINKING, 'BOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU SAID LAST NIGHT,

YOU LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL IN CANDLELIGHT TO ME,

AND THERE'S NOTHING I CAN ADD TO THAT,

THERE ARE DIRTY UNWASHED CURTAINS,

CHINA CATS IN WINDOWS,

WOMEN STAND OUT ON DOORSTEPS,

WITH NOTHING TO DO, NOTHING TO DO,

YOU WERE LOST, YOU WERE LOST,

IN YOUR OWN INSECURITY...



SEND YOUR SMILE,

BE HAPPY, BE WITH ME,

SEND YOUR SMILE, BE HAPPY WITH ME...



FEELING, TOUCH ME MOVING CLOSER,

FEELING, TOUCH ME MOVING CLOSER...

THEY MEAN NOTHING.



SEND YOUR SMILE,

BE HAPPY, BE WITH ME...

SEND YOUR SMILE,

BE HAPPY WITH ME...

BE HAPPY WITH ME.







BESIDES



I CAN SEE YOU BACK WHERE WE WERE,

WITH YOUR EYES CAST CLOSE, AND YOUR LONG DARK CURLS,

AS WE LAY DOWN UNDER THE SUN,

I WAS RIGHT BESIDE YOU,

AND WE KNEW OUR DAY HAD TO END,

BUT WE JUMPED IN DEEP, AND WE,

TOOK WHAT WE NEED,

AND I WATCHED YOU DANCE THROUGH THE TREES,

I NEED YOU HERE BESIDE ME...



AND WE KNEW OUR DAY HAD TO END,

BUT WE JUMPED IN DEEP, 

AND WE TOOK WHAT WE NEED,

AND I WATCHED YOU DANCE THROUGH THE TREES,

I NEED YOU HERE BESIDE ME,

AND THROUGH THE DEEPENING DARK,

WE WERE ONE AND SLEPT CLOSE,

UNDER THE SUN,

AND THE MOON GAVE LIGHT WELL ENOUGH,

TO KNOW YOU'RE HERE BESIDE ME...



AND LOOKING BACK STILL I SEE,

THAT YOU WERE CLOSER, NEARER TO ME,

THAN ALL I'VE KNOWN IN THE TIME,

WHEN YOU'VE NOT BEEN BESIDE ME,

SO I'LL REACH OUT TO YOU WHEN YOU SLEEP,

AND WE'LL DANCE AND MAKE LOVE THERE,

UNDER THE TREES,

AND I KNOW THAT YOU'RE HEARING MY SONG,

AND KNOW I'M THERE BESIDE YOU...



I CAN SEE YOU BACK WHERE WE WERE,

WITH YOUR EYES CAST CLOSE,

AND YOUR LONG DARK CURLS,

AS WE LAY DOWN UNDER THE SUN,

I KNOW YOU'RE HERE BESIDE ME...







CENTERED SIDEWAYS



HERE IT COMES THE WINTER,

I FEEL WARM INSIDE,

CONTENTED COUNTLESS SHIVER,

UP AND DOWN MY SPINE,

FROZEN BE THE WINDOW, OPEN TO THE BREEZE,

COUNTING RESTLESS CLATTER FEET,

RUNNING THROUGH THE TREES...

I AM CENTERED SIDEWAYS...

I WANT TO SPIN, I WANT TO SCREAM,

I WANT TO CREATE AND MAKE REALITY SING...



SO HERE IT COMES IN WAVES NOW,

BUT I KNOW WHERE I AM,

RIGHT I FEEL THIS MOMENT,

PASSING THROUGH THIS TIME,

NO ACTING OUT EMOTIONS,

FOR PLEASING OTHERS SMILE,

JUST ME CLOSE TO THE CENTER,

OF MOVING TURNING TIME...

I AM CENTERED SIDEWAYS

I WANT TO SPIN, I WANT TO SCREAM,

I WANT TO CREATE AND MAKE REALITY SING...



SO HERE IT COMES I FEEL IT,

SLOWING DOWN THIS TIME,

SLOWING DOWN OUR HEARTBEATS,

JUST NOT TO MISS A MILE,

CLOSER STILL BY SECONDS,

CATCHING UP THE MISTS,

DON'T KNOW WHERE I'M GOING,

THIS BREATH IS A PRECIOUS GIFT...

I AM CENTERED SIDEWAYS...

I WANT TO SPIN, I WANT TO SCREAM,

I WANT TO CREATE AND MAKE REALITY SING,

SIDEWAYS...
