Let Me Out 03:09
Take me back to the crystal cave To endless hours on endless days with you Take me where the clouds are bright Where shadows walk into the light The missing person's eyes are black Collect your things and take them back with you Or Let me out Cuz I want out now Take me to where all dreams are born And lay me in a field of porn Now tell me tales of the judged and scorned and I'll listen You be Jill and I'll be Jack We'll look good, baby, and never look back again The missing person's eyes are white The searchlight flashes through the night So Let me out Cuz I want out now

Oh no no What's this here? Young deliquents from some Lost ancient species All we wanted was to thank you All they wanted was What was it they wanted? To call your name Is to burst into flames Here comes the wave of disappointment Formed from the lies for which we fell Even the oxen, free of reason Do realize that it's their fate Dullards, freaks and all varieties Of parasites surround you Around you Hold your breath and count to zero Collect the droppings of your heroes Why are we here With your mouth in our ears? You call my name And I burst into flames Here comes the wave of disappointment Formed from the lies for which we fell Even the oxen, free of reason Do realize that it's their fate Here comes the wave of disappointment Here come the dolts with mouths agape Even the oxen, free of reason Do realize that it's their fate

Shitstorm 03:35
Reveille of the drones Sending in the clones Getting naked to the bone Just for you Rising from the bog Creeping through the fog It's the turning of the cog Just for you And while you're busy watching Shadows on the wall Let the winner take it all Because you're through No time for weakness They are spreading the disease Best to grab your parapluies The shitstorm brews Midgets, dwarves and trolls They're looking to pawn their souls And getting crazy baby out of control Just for you And while you're busy casting Shadows on the wall Let the winner take it all Because you're through No time for weakness They are spreading the disease Best to grab your parapluies The shitstorm brews

Much Love 02:37
Are you wracked with indecision Tortured by your perfect vision Blind to all in front of you? Are you out of luck But what the fuck You've made it this far honey Dancing skills are under par So meet me in the dark Cuz if you feel unnoticed Well I feel unnoticed, too It's a long shot but fire away Let the bottom drop from under you Wash away your tears of sorrow Give back all the lives you borrowed Let your angels speak to you Once a lifetime you will find The one who holds what you can't find Chain the hounds and head for home Much love if you don't But if you feel unnoticed Well I feel unnoticed, too It's a long shot but fire away Let the bottom drop from under you

Don't you speak Your words leave me sick To burn you alive would be Your gift to me And while you were out Your world broke in three To drown you alive would be Your gift to me Let me teach you How to die Let me read to you From the lie Of a strange, exhausted dream That was written in the night It don't mean you at all To drown you alive would be Your one way out To burn you alive would be Your gift to me

All of you babies Lost in a pile Call it a shame Say what's your name An intruiging witness A page from a file Sorrowful sight One thing on my mind Calling all babies Break out from your pens Your giving it up, doll Again and again All of your time spent Whatever you wanted gone Now all of you babies In line for the pain Blinded by sight Deaf to the night Now I never knew you To survive in the light Such a surprise One thing on my mind Calling all babies Held up to the fire Forever a witness Come ignite your desires All of your time spent Whatever you wanted gone Always on my mind Calling all babies Held up to the flame Forgive what you won't You're about to be renamed Calling all babies Held up to the fire Forever a victim of Crimes of desire All of your time spent On and on and on
7.
Ask me ask me ask me Baby how you be Dirty dirty dirty You're still dirty I can see It's a long dark road With the signs in code It's a long dark road Where the signs end Dumb, young and lazy Call me crazy call me what you will You can't beat a hole in the head They like that shit It's a long dark road With the signs in code It's a long dark road Where the signs end
8.
I've been waiting so long Just to tell you Tell you something Wonder if you know what I will tell you of my secret Who is it they've chosen to Put the connection through Come on And if they've chosen you They'll ask you how much do you know And will forget And I'll tell you my secret If you'll listen Have you really learned if They don't want you or need you yet Wasted all your moments On a sun that won't rise or set Who is it they've chosen to Put the connection through Come on And if they've chosen you They'll ask you how much do you know And will forget And I'll tell you my secret If you'll listen

Who's been in your dark corners? Who has left their mark that you're carrying away? Who's the one you find When the one who's on your mind Seems they're slipping away? If you're lost And want the one in your area today You slit your tongue to find who's scaring you away And that's just part but that's the start Of all this freezing Even while you breathe There's a rhythm if it leaves Then you spin out of control Even in the heart Of a million faded stars Is an everlasting glow If you're lost And want the one in your area today You slit your tongue to find who's scaring you away And that's just part but that's the start Of all this freezing
10.
Come on Don't you live for the light You give to the night But you live for the light Lift you up too far Lift you up before The daylight Moved across your sad eyes And faded Into shadows Come on Don't you live for the light Now the daylight Moved across your sad eyes And faded Into shadows Long nights of pain had Kept me from your Goldmine of faith
