Track Name: The Fog
Hold me still, stop the room from spinning
Swallow the pill, take me back to the beginning
Where I feel safe
Where I feel safe

Cos I've had lightening strike me to the ground
though the sky is brightening I can still see it now
I feel the earth move
I feel the earth move

I'll lift the fog that has kept me blinded
While some turn to god just to be reminded
That there is more
That there is more

Cos I've had lightening strike me to the ground
though the sky is brightening I can still see it now
I feel the earth move
I feel the earth move

Cos I've had lightening strike me to the ground
though the sky is brightening I can still see it now
I feel the earth move
I feel the earth move

Hold me still, stop the room from spinning
Swallow the pill, take me back to the beginning
Where I feel safe
Where I feel safe
Track Name: Stop Me
All my life I've been the weak one
Always the meek one
Well no more
I'm rising up out of the ashes
With my past it clashes
But now this is war

You throw me down and then
You dare call me your friend
Well just try to stop me now I'm the one on top
You can try to stop me now I'm the one on top

One hundred miles can feel like a thousand
I pass many towns and
I cross many shores
My heart finds strength with every conquest
Now I don't need rest
My bones are not sore

So throw me down again
And see if I'm your friend
And just try to stop me now Im the one on top
You can try to stop me now Im the one on top

Oh life's fleeting promise can pass you by though you might try
You still could crash
I'm not sure I'd want to be the one
Still landing alone in the aftermath

So throw me down again
And see if I'm your friend
And just try to stop me now Im the one on top
I dare you to stop me now Im the one on top
Oh you think you can stop me but I'll come out on top
Track Name: Diving for Pearls
She's her mother's daughter and he's his father's son
And they are dancing to the beat of the same drum
They'll leave their houses burning as they run towards the sun
They are hoping that they are the only ones

And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world
Since he had her cast out of his sea
And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world
Since she found he could not let her be

The world that he sought after would bring him to his knees
He could not see through the poison ivy leaves
The only sound as he hit the ground and fell down to her feet
Was his desperate cry begging her to try again to set him free

And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world
Since he had her cast out of his sea
And you can find her diving for pearls off the edge of the world
Since she found he could not let her be

She's her mother's daughter and he's his father's son
And they are dancing to the beat of the same drum
They'll leave their houses burning as they run towards the sun
They are hoping that they are the only ones
Track Name: Sandstorm
We had a bargain that you broke
Leaving behind just a note
Waiting in the garden while you smoke
Wondering how long till we choke

In the sandstorm that is tearing through your mind
Is a place that you rarely come to find
So you write letters to those you've left behind
Explaining that you couldn't find the time
To rewrite

We once had something that was lost
You longed for it back at any cost
But winter soon covered your heart with frost
The touch that I once knew no longer soft

In the sandstorm that is tearing through your mind
Is a place that you rarely come to find
So you write letters to those you've left behind
Explaining that you couldn't find the time
In the sandstorm that is tearing through your mind
Is a place that you rarely come to find
So you write letters to those you've left behind
Explaining that you couldn't find the time
To rewrite
Track Name: Disappear
Sometimes I wish that I could disappear
Your last shot it threw me to the ground
It wasn't that I didn't feel the fear
But when I cried out it didn't make a sound

It made no sound
It made no sound

When you know it all it doesn't help at all
I guess you're so tall you can't see that the small
Things matter to me

I have always been fast on my feet
But for some reason that day I didn't run
I guess I thought that you made me complete
But I know now that our last dance had begun

It had begun
It had begun

When you know it all it doesn't help at all
I guess you're so tall you can't see that the small
Things matter to me
Track Name: Power Out
Meet me when the power’s out
We're not afraid of darkness
We'll be the only ones about tonight
Soon we'll find our way without
Turning to your torches
Then we will be known throughout the land

If I'm wrong then I
Wont just lay down and die
I won't go out without a fight
So meet me when the power’s out

Out
Meet me when the power’s out
Out
Meet me when the power’s out

Meet me when the power’s out
Escape into the darkness
We'll be the only ones about tonight
And if we find our way without
Turning to your torches
Then we'll know our silent vows begun

If I'm wrong then I
Wont just lay down and die
I won't go out without a fight
So meet me when the power’s out

Out
Meet me when the power’s out
Out
Meet me when the power’s out

Meet me when the power’s out
We're not afraid of darkness
We'll be the only ones about tonight
Soon we'll find our way without
Turning to your torches
Then we will be known throughout the land

If I'm wrong then I
Wont just lay down and die
I won't go out without a fight
So meet me when the power’s out

Out
Meet me when the power’s out
Out
Meet me when the power’s out
Out
Meet me when the power’s out
Out
Meet me when the power’s out

If Im wrong then I
Wont just lay down and die
I won't go out without a fight
So meet me when the power’s out
Track Name: The Web
Its hard to believe that you could deceive
And leave us caught in the web that you'd weave
And now that you're gone how it took me so long
To remember that I could be strong

For a while I let you cover my ears and my eyes
From the moment I met you it came as no surprise
As you revelled in my demise

Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise
From a dream as a child
Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine
If I kept my eyes blind
And I stayed by your side

I guess that in time I could take back whats mine
Leaving memories of you far behind
But its harder when you try time and again
To remind me that we were once friends

Go win someone else's trust with the niceties that you fake
Go stare at your own reflection in somebody else's lake
Cos there's nothing left here to break
Chorus:
Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise
From a dream as a child
Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine
If I kept my eyes blind
And I stayed by your side

All the time had me waiting was so frustrating and so far
The picture that you are painting is not demonstrating
Who you are

Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise
From a dream as a child
Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine

Took me to places I'd swear that I'd recognise
From a dream as a child
Told me of riches and wonders and said that they could be all mine
If I kept my eyes blind
And I stayed by your side
Track Name: Undone
I didn't hold you back but I didn't push you on
I guess I hoped with me is where you'd belong
And I know that it takes two, still I wish I'd been the one
To tug the knot until we came undone
Undone

It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed
I just guess I put it second to my basic human need
And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool

I know I let you down by begging you to stay
Still you told me you'd have it no other way
I could tell that you were torn, still I never saw you sway
You'd have held my hand despite your own decay
Your decay
Chorus:
It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed
I just guess I put it second to my basic human need
And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool

Still I wish I'd tried just to put you first
Cos I could have lied when my heart it burst
But instead I cried for you to quench my thirst
For your love
Your love

It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed
I just guess I put it second to my basic human need
And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool
It wasn't that I didn't want you to succeed
I just guess I put it second to my basic human need
And now you're gonna lose it all and I could not feel much more of a fool
Track Name: Every Little Light
A strangers hand upon my shoulder
Knowing that I'm not alone should make me bolder
But still I shiver at the touch
I guess I've seen too much
I shiver at the touch
I guess I've seen too much

Open your eyes and from your sleep arise
Set me free tonight

Tonight every little light shows
A way that noone else knows
I'm falling down
I'm falling down
I'm falling down

Let me sleep a little longer
Then I'll be a little stronger
Cos nothing's as it seems
So let me get lost in dreams
No nothing's as it seems
So let me get lost in dreams

Open your eyes and from your sleep arise
Set me free tonight
Open your eyes and from your sleep arise
Set me free

Tonight every little light shows
A way that noone else knows
I'm falling down
I'm falling down
I'm falling down
Track Name: Laughter Lines
Would your world stop spinning if I came around and told you that I was leaving town
Would you even notice me gone
The space between was growing too fast and we both knew that it couldn't last
Still we lingered a little too long

And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine

Would your mother have to wipe away your tears as she has done for so many years
Would you chase me and beg me to stay
I know how you like to say that you would but even if I knew that you could
You would leave it one second too late

And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine

Oh now you're sick of being alone
Well maybe you could be the reason I come home
You said you didn't know that for you I left my throne
Because I didn't think you'd make it on your own
But I was wrong

And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
And our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
Our laughter lines remind me of a brighter time
When staying out and lying in was yours and mine
Track Name: Paralysed
Wonder where we're going, what we're hiding from
Wonder why we're leaving and where we belong

We're running out of ways to say
Something has got to change

While your heart is paralysed
Your pain will be disguised
Know that power lies
In love that's not denied

Crashing we're colliding, but we're pulling through
Bodies torn to pieces, but will our hearts stay true
Bridge:
We're running out of ways to say
Something has got to change

While your heart is paralysed
Your pain will be disguised
Know that power lies
In love that's not denied

We're running out of ways to say
Something has got to change
We're running out of ways to say
Something has got to change

While your heart is paralysed
Your pain will be disguised
Know that power lies
In love that's not denied
In love thats not denied
In love thats not denied
Track Name: Daisy Chains
She's sitting on the grass out side waiting for you to arrive
She's waiting
Her mothers waiting in the house in her favourite silk blouse
She's waiting
The sun is shining down today so please don't take this all away
She's waiting
She'll sit and make her daisy chains, the last of her hope still remains
She's waiting

So please don't let her down
No please don't let her down

And she could grow up without you and never know the things you'd do
She'd never know
And for her you might never try or laugh with her until you cry
You'd never know
And as she grew up through the years well who'd be there to wipe her tears
You'd love her so
And if you came to her one day and tried to make it all okay
She'd tell you no

So please don't let her down
No please don't let her down
Save your own despair for when she's not around

Don't let her go on thinking you don't care about her
And don't let it show if you would you would rather go

So please don't let her down
No please don't let her down
Save your own despair for when she's not around
No please don't let her down
No please don't let her down
Save your own despair for when she's not around
