To the edge
Till we all get off
I will take you away with me
Once and for all

Time will see us realign
Diamonds rain across the sky
Shower me into the same realm

Calculate
Our embrace
Hold on (Come with me now)
Run away
Outer space with me
Once and for all

Time will see us realign
Diamonds rain across the sky
Shower me into the same realm
Time will see us realign
Diamonds rain across the sky
I will lead us to the same realm

When the coffin shakes
And the needle breaks
Come run away with me
Come on, you'll see
Once and for all

Time will see us realign
Diamonds rain across the sky
Shower me into the same realm
Time will lead us to the same realm
I will lead us to the same realm

Complex
Priestess
Come down
Contact
Reach us
Go wild

I've chased your name
I've sailed
All through space
To watch this

Come down
Teach us
The ropes
Your concept
It keeps us
Provoked

Remove your veil
Let me light you up
I'm on your team

Let's go

Face to face
Light stare
My custom made
Nightmares
Armed with teeth
In fashion
Now all we need
Is action

Complex
Priestess
Come down
Contact
Reach us
Go wild

Remove your veil
Let me light you up
I'm on your team
I'm the antidote
The rocket's taking off
Tonight
It's time

Take me
I'll light you up
Take me
Up

. . .


I can't tell
How's this shit all my fault?
It's a department I fill, but they should
I send commands
Just because I can
Now I can just imagine the difference it has

Straight out of your mind
You see, I'm well aware
You're out of your mind

I said your name
It slipped off my tongue
Pointed at the camera laughing at you
Once again
You see, no one cares
It's how you wear it, not what it says

Straight out of your mind
You see, I'm well aware
You're out of your mind

Straight out

I can't tell
How's this shit not your fault?
Bitch, you're barbaric
King Kong, get some
Switching command
Just because I can
I like to see you wear it
Why can't I stare?

Switching command
Just because I can
And if I let my guard down, who knows what then?
Once again
Just because I can

. . .


Don't wanna take it slow
I wanna take you home
And watch the world explode
From underneath your glow

I wanna watch the way
You creep across my skull

You slowly enter
'Cause you know my room
And then you crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb

I wanna watch you close
I need to see for sure
After the tape is through
Who do you think we can show?

I wanna watch the way
You creep across my skull

You slowly enter
'Cause you know my room
And then you crawl your knees off
And then you shake my tomb

I wanna watch the way
You creep across my skull

You slowly enter
'Cause you know my room
And then you crawl your knees off
Before you shake my tomb
You enter slowly
You know my rule
You crawl your knees off
And then you shake my tomb

. . .


I like you when
When you take off your face
Put away all your teeth
And take us way underneath
'Cause you could die
If you take it alone

I watch you taste it
I see your face
And I know I'm alive
You're shooting stars
From the barrel of your eyes
It drives me crazy
Just drives me wild

I kinda like you when
When you make up the reel
Take the phone in your room
Stop the tape or resume
Well you could try
If you think it will load

I watch you taste it
I see your face
And I know I'm alive
You're shooting stars
From the barrel of your eyes
It drives me crazy
It drives me wild

Everytime
Everytime you try

Wild
It's a beautiful ride

I watch you taste it
I see your face
And I know I'm alive
You're shooting stars
From the barrel of your eyes
It drives me crazy
Just drives me wild

. . .


I relate to your kind
Your design
Your devotion to wave
Get your brain on the prize
Then dive inside

The mindset of a killer
With your mind out of phase

It's a game that we like
We crave, yet nobody wins
Any way you decide
You try, but you die

The mindset of a killer
With your gaze you paint the room
Blood red with tears
Pouring from the stage

And you can't stop now
Rung by rung, almost out
Covered in black and gold
No one cares, no one knows
My gift to the world outside
It's okay, I'm alright
Now open your empty hands
Here comes the fun
Here comes the end

Click erase the device
Give thanks, then clear out the room
Blow kisses, wave them goodbye
Goodnight

The mindset of a killer
With your gaze you paint the room
Blood red with tears
Pouring from the stage

And you can't stop now
Rung by rung, almost out
Covered in black and gold
No one cares, no one knows
My gift to the world outside
It's okay, I'm alright
Now open your empty hands
Here comes the fun
Here comes the end

. . .


You're red, soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red, soaking wet.
Lets writhe, let me see you trip.
One move that will keep you wet.
Lets fall in a long sadistic trance.
Put the keys in our hands.

Guns. Razors. Knives.
(fuck with me)
Guns. Razors. Knives

You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red, soaking wet.
Lets sail in this sea of charms.
Lets drown underneath the stars.
Lets drink with our weapons in our hands.
Lets sleep in this trance.

Guns. Razors. Knives.
(fuck with me)
Guns. Razors. Knives

You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red soaking wet.

Guns. Razors. Knives.
(fuck with me)
Guns. Razors. Knives.

You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red soaking wet.
I'm right next to you.
You're red soaking wet.

Floating under water
Ever changing picture
Hours out from land
In tune with all our dreams

The ocean takes me in
To watch you shake it
Watch you wave your powers
Tempt with hours of pleasure

Take me one more time
Take me one more wave
Take me for one last ride
I'm out of my head

Tonight
Tonight I

The sound of the waves collide
Tonight we ride

Cruising through the city after hours
With me fusing all our powers
Here's to all our (dreams)

Take me one more time
Take me one more wave
Take me for one last ride
I'm out of my head

Tonight
Tonight I

The sound of the waves collide
Tonight we ride

. . .


You can't talk
I'm anxious
I'm off the walls
I'm right here
Just come outside
And see it
But pack your heart
You might need it

I'll find a way
I'm confused though
But I think I can try

I will save your life
I will save your life
I'll try for you

You're locked up
You exhaled
You did it before
And I've seen it
Come outside
And breath in
Relax your arms
And let me in

I'll find a way
I'm confused though
But I think I can try

I will save your life
I will save your life
I'll try for you

I know what to say to take you higher
Higher
No one else can take you higher
But I will try

I'll find a way
I'm confused though
But I think I can try

I will save your life
I will save your life
I'll try

I'll find a way
I'm confused though
But I think I can try

I will save your life
I will save your life
I'll try
For you

. . .


For a thousand days
You've been staring away
Are you phased?
Are you thinking?
Crack a smile and wave
It doesn't scare me away

Hit the brakes
I feel like cruising with you, too

So I gaze in your eyes
And I wonder
Can you take me up?
Your haze
That I'm under
Come wake me up soon

Take a bow and wave
As you're carried away
It was great
But I'm not leaving
Crack a smile and wave
It still doesn't scare me away

Hit the brakes
I feel like cruising with you, too

So I gaze in your eyes
And I wonder
Can you take me on?
Your haze that
I'm under
Come to wake me up

For a thousand days
We could get carried away
Are you in?

(I'm anxious and I feel like cruising with you)

So I gaze in your eyes
And I wonder
Can you take me on?
Your haze
That I'm under
Come to wake
So I gaze
And I want her
Can you take me on?

. . .


You arrive in my dream
Beside me every night
You and me
We explode through the scene
We try to drain the night empty

No one goes off in every way
Like you do

We go out together
We weave our own web
Tangled in the waves with you
We spray the scene in red
We both erupt in colors
And carve out our names
You keep me aroused
I know you feel the same

You arrived in my dream
Beside me every night
Just you and me
We explode through the scene
We try to drain the night empty

No one else has a hold over me
Like you do

You open up the covers
You lure me in
Tackle me anxious
Back into bed
Well I hope to discover
All of your waves
This place is death
I know you feel the same

You arrived in my dream
Beside me every night
Just you and me
We explode through the scene
We try to drain the night every way

. . .


[Originally by The Cardigans]

Do you really think
That love is gonna save the world
Well, I don't think so
I just don't think so
Do you really think
That love is gonna save your soul
Well I sure hope so
Oh, I really really hope so
But I don't think so

Do you really think
That love is gonna save the world
Well, I don't think so
I just don't think so
Do you really think
That love is gonna save your soul
Well I sure hope so
Oh, yes I really really hope so
But I don't think so

. . .


When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there's something I should know

Well, I ought to leave
But the rain it never stops
And I've no particular place to go

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than before

Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than the wind

Well, I'm feeling nervous
And now I find myself alone
The simple life's no longer there

Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
It comes and goes, but leads nowhere

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than before

Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than the wind

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than before

Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than the wind

[Originally by Drive Like Jehu]

Gracie, we're makin babies, yea, we're barefoot on the tiles
we make 'em soft and small and tender,
it's the biggest hazard of your gender
gotta hold it by yourself
Gracie, hold yourself together, it's bad now but it gets better
we're all here to help

everything is swollen, everything is swell... everybody's watching

they all wanna see it kick

pleasure is your crime, junior is your punishment
happens all the time, everybody rub it in.

It ain't hard to find fault in any thing you do,
we learned to love the hard way, you're gonna learn it too.
