Track Name: Limited Issue
Tonight tonight the city sleeps
I know the secrets that it keeps
I know the secrets that it holds
I know the stories left untold

Tonight tonight the clouds will burst
release the acid rain
I wonder if it is enough
to break these iron chains

I wanna feel loved
I wanna feel loved

Tonight tonight the skies are filled
with countless falling stars
An ode to love that has been spilled
in our attrition wars

Tonight tonight the tide has left
not leaving anything of worth
But if all property is theft
then who owns planet earth?

I wanna feel loved
I wanna feel loved

Tonight tonight the clouds will break
and shower us with kindness
Will it wash away the dust
A cure for our blindness?

Tomorrow morning we will wake
There will be no exceptions
Will that dawning day
be our shot at redemption?

I wanna feel loved
I wanna feel loved
I wanna feel loved
Track Name: Falling Apart
Our lives beneath a dying sun
before we've begun
we fall apart.

No happy ends in final movie scenes
at least in the ones I've seen
we fall apart.

Will we change before we fall?
And will someone hear our call?
Will our essence be the glue
that makes us whole and pulls us through?

Like leftover nuclear submarines
blown to smithereens
we fall apart.

Like plutonium
like titanium
like uranium
we fall apart.

Will we change before we fall?
And will someone hear our call?
Can we count on our souls
to pull us through and make us whole?

Will the great pursuit of happiness,
of always more and never less,
be enough to pull us through?

Will the perfect world in magazines,
the happy ending movie scenes,
be enough to pull us through?

Will a little sunshine on rainy days
and traveling through hyperspace,
be enough to pull us through?

And will all the things we're dreaming of
and a little snippet of your love,
be enough to pull us through?
Track Name: Another Me
From this place that you call home
to the corner of the street
you can find someone to love
but not someone you need

From the Arctic snow fields
to deserts filled with dust
you can find someone to hide behind
but not someone to trust

It's not so far from here

There are plenty other trees in the forest
There are plenty other fish in the sea
You'll find love everywhere you're going
but you'll never find another me

From the old world known as Europe
to the United States
you can find someone to hold
but not someone who waits

From the windy town of Wellington
to Trafalgar Square
you can find someone to kiss
but not someone who cares

It's not so far from here

There are plenty other trees in the forest
There are plenty other fish in the sea
You'll find love everywhere you're going
but you'll never find another me

From the deepest ocean trenches
to the top of the Kilimanjaro
You'll never find another me
And I'll never find another you
Track Name: By My Side
In the darkest of days
In the darkest of hours
We won't give in
'cause what we lack in power
we make up with friendship

Losing your way
Your head starts to spin
The unstable ground
The problems you're in
are mere words in the wind

'Cause I feel loved when you are by my side
Together, the future's looking bright

You stretch out your hand
showing a smile
The wind in your hair
and just for a while
this world's a little closer to heaven

The loveliest thoughts
I believe I can fly
with clouds passing by
I just can't deny
This world's bathing in sunshine

'Cause I feel loved when you are by my side
Together, the future's looking bright

'Cause I feel loved when you are by my side
Together, we can make things right

In times of need in times of doubt
Don't give in but keep giving out, keep giving out
Track Name: Away
Away,
let's get away
'Cause you know
the feeling never stays

Falling out -- calling on -- thoughts that are inside me
Never had -- anyone -- able to oblige me
Never met -- anyone -- capable to tie me
To tame the beast -- try at least -- cage the love inside me

Away,
let's get away
'Cause you know
the feeling never stays

Rest a while -- carry on -- souls they've got to wander
'fore they die -- of the weight -- of feelings that they're under
You say you -- understand -- but your thoughts they ponder
Y'only see -- an escapee -- all the things I squander

Away,
let's get away
'Cause you know
the feeling never stays
Track Name: Love Is Hope
When you've given all you can
but nothing works out right
Time is slipping through your hands
even if you close them tight

This is what you get when all else fails
The shit has hit the fan
Only dust and vapor trails
There goes your master plan

But why waste time on things you hate
When love is hope that never fades

When you walk on sinking sand
and hope is out of sight
and there's no helping hand
to guide you through the night

When all you see outside
is a blackened sky
The sunny day they promised
was just another lie

But why waste time on things you hate
When love is hope that never fades

How you'd love to burn these thoughts down
How you'd love to make them pay
If you hang on to your anger
You'll end up nowhere anyway
Track Name: The Rain
I wanna be a commercial
I want you to like me
and hate me
at the same time

I want to be a rehearsal
I wanna practice so
I know that in the end
I'll be fine

And there's a thin line between
crazy and sane,
but it has been washed
away by the rain

You feel me up like
I'm a soft wall
You feel me up like
I'm a soft wall

Like you can cuddle
my secrets straight
out of my soul

And there's a thin line between
crazy and sane,
but it has been washed
away by the rain

Would you tear
my chest apart
and warm my
hoarfrost heart
Track Name: Cosmos
If I were like the sun
I'd be sailing through the cosmos

Just like cold nuclear fusion
Is light speed only an illusion?

Mother Earth is getting nearer
She can scream but I can't hear her

There's a vacuum between us
There are too many miles between us
Track Name: Break The Silence
There ain't a minute I don't think
about the dreams we used to chase
Hope has left the planet earth
floating deep in outer space now

And with your screams you've betrayed
the quietest of all four seasons
If you don't learn to love yourself
you'll run out of valid reasons

Won't you break the silence
and tell me how you feel
Break the silence
And turn these shattered thoughts
into something real

Walk in silence through the night
like Navy Seals on secret missions
Who will save our unborn kids
from commercial television

Teenage mothers live their lives
on cigarettes and fat-free diets
Kids growing up to the sound
of New York City ghetto riots

Won't you break the silence
and tell me how you feel
Break the silence
And turn these shattered thoughts
into something real

We and our cars driving down
to wherever money takes us

I don't know if we'll ever learn
from all that bends but never breaks us

Won't you break the silence
and tell me how you feel
Break the silence
And turn these shattered thoughts
into something real
Track Name: Kids These Days
Kids these days are growing up
Growing up and growing older
Running to their mothers
All the things they've never told her

Kids these days are wired to
wired to electronic toys
All work and no play
Turns them into the dullest boys

All the coins that they've been tossing
All the borders they've been crossing
Can't they see that what they're doing
Puts them on a road to ruin

Kids these days they miss the love
The love and understanding
that parents used to give
when life gets too demanding

All the borders they've been crossing
All the coins that they've been tossing
Can't they see that what they're doing
Puts them on a road to ruin
Road to ruin
Track Name: The Golden Age
Tonight
tonight we burn the flag
on a shoreline swept by waves
Where undercurrents drag
the filth of this world
to the ocean floor
A place where your
excuses aren't
needed anymore

This is not the Golden Age,
that's the plain and simple truth
But we're in this together and
that's enough to make it through

Tonight
tonight we're going down
Looking for Atlantis
and steal some rusty crowns

Oh tonight
tonight we'll rise again
Somewhere in a quiet bay
We were beggars all our lives
but now we're kings for a day

This is not the Golden Age,
that's the plain and simple truth
But we're in this together and
that's enough to make it through

The fires in our hearts still rage,
we've kept the dream alive
And if we keep on dreaming,
I'm sure that we'll survive

Tonight
Tonight we'll rise again
Somewhere in a quiet bay
We were beggars all our lives
but now we're kings for a day
Track Name: Oceans Apart
When some days break you more
than others make you whole
When there's nothing more to see
through the windows of your soul

Black light shadows I can see
I can see but I can't feel
Never knowing if this song
if this song is for real

If you keep talking like that
If that's all that's coming out
It doesn't matter if you whisper
It doesn't matter if you shout

Never meant to last forever
This was doomed from the start
We're in this world together
But we're oceans apart

Late night rumors I'm alone
The only one who hears
all the small things he shines
shines into my ears

Stainless mornings waking up
hasty kisses and goodbyes
Only seeing what she whispers
whispers to my eyes

I wanted to know how far it could go
I wanted to know how far it could go
I wanted to know how far it could go
I wanted to know how far it could go

Never meant to last forever
This was doomed from the start
We're in this world together
But we're oceans apart
