I’m watching watching watching water Washing washing washing dishes, dishes I’m watching watching watching water Washing washing washing wishes, wishes Gurgling H20, where does it go? Dirty H20, where does it go? It goes down, it goes down Gravity says so, gravity says so It goes down, it goes down Gravity says so, gravity says so I’m sorry sorry sorry mother If I’m running running in place, in place She got what she wanted, fame and money Then she left me here in disgrace Now she’s in deep space It goes down, it goes down Gravity said so, gravity said so It goes down, it goes down Gravity says so, gravity says so It goes down, it goes down Gravity says so, gravity says so

Are you still crazy about me? You’re gonna drain me You’re gonna burn me Only time will tell It always does Puke, cough, shake Moving backwards, half awake There is a drawing on the floor In another place so long before You could almost If you could just Watch again the seconds hand You’re gonna hate it You’re gonna need it Only time will tell It always does Drink, smoke, sleep I know you’re bad at counting sheep And get to wake up in the morn’ Ever since the day when you were born You could almost If you could just Didn’t have the balls to answer her today And it’s breaking my heart: I got laid Are you still thinking about it? You gotta leave it And be forbearing Only time will tell It always does Only time will tell It always does Only time will tell It always does You could almost If you could just If you could just If you could just

End Of Wine 03:20
Oh sweety, give me some panic Another one night stand Tears can wait Till the end of time, till the end of wine I loved you and I think you felt the same Though you’d never admit it And I know you wouldn’t believe me You knew you would leave me At the end of time, at the end of wine When the jasmines are growing When it’s warmer here, colder there And the window is closing I might realize you were right When the jasmines are growing When it’s warmer here, colder there And the window is closing I might realize you were right Oh baby, quantum mechanics I was sitting on the fence It felt right, it felt nice Till the end of time, till the end of wine Till the end of time, till the end of wine Till the end of time, till the end of time Till the end of time, till the end of wine

Your rocket engines Brought you far away But now you say you’re looking Back at me, back at me And you’re moving so fine The movie’s all right And the crew is doing great While I’m just sinking You’re just sinking In this deadly state of mind I’ll never have the guts To be myself again Crushed, crying, crashed And still afraid of pain Those days are gone Just like my will And even though I’m done I know that I will never be relaxed But drunk, yeah, beating myself up Until my brain explodes And everything turns black But the movie’s all right You’re moving so fine There’s no one else around I take the bait without a frown I love your smile I know I cannot hide I wouldn’t stop your hand There’s no use to pretend I’m afraid ‘cause I’m not sure If my reaction was insane I’ve always known awareness hurts Like breathing...I had to run away I wrote this song to let you know You touched me and made me cry Now, when the music’s gone Survival instinct is my friend

He’s walking down the lane Where God forbids to stay alive Is the death of my brain Now his only life? He says he was right Out of control I just couldn’t get along With that role Where the fuck did he belong? He said I was wrong But I still see that line Drawn underneath my feet That makes us meet from time to time Yes I still see that line Drawn underneath my feet That makes us dream from time to time Now he’s home No mom to tell him what to think And he writes a poem About his leaking kitchen sink While his world is shrinking down Saturation Information you can’t see Yesterday the show Was as fun as it could be Grounded at 1G Now I’m drifting randomly But I still see that line Drawn underneath my feet That makes us meet from time to time Yes I still see that line Drawn underneath my feet That makes us dream from time to time Yes I still see that line Drawn underneath my feet That makes us dream from time to time

I think it all began At Battersea Power Station And then you know what she said? She said “I really want to s...”

Trying to run away From a moment of shame We started looking at things In a different way Our eyes were moving in the dark Lost in infinity Two roads ahead and the fear Of losing both home and dignity Don’t want compassion To put my worries back on the shelf Don’t feed my gentian I need my worries just for myself

Woman had a fire panther inside Woman was squirming by my side Her lips: domination Blow your mind with special effects Her lips: no conversation Only sex, only sex She no longer can turn me on Empty kisses, now passion is gone Did you cheat on me? I’m watching my sweaty face I feel ropy and disgustingly out of place Heal my heart, erase my worries I know you can Heal my heart, erase my worries Yes I know you can I’m a mesmerized man Drowning like a blinded fly I see a shadow of my soul, acid thin and dry She won’t let me see the door No words to say what I’m looking for Heal my heart, erase my worries I know you can Heal my heart, erase my worries Yes I know you can

Spinnin’ around in the shade Dreaming of the sunlight Retreat and shame It’s too cold outside Do I wanna go? Couldn’t I just stay And watch the fire die? My love won’t wake me up Helpless all day Nothing I could change at night In a human way Many others would race For another taste of life In a comfortable place And let the fire die My love, don’t wake me up Oh darling, I can’t get away from here There’s no one to blame for it I’m begging you, don't get away from me I know we can handle it My love, please, wake me up Spinnin’ around in the shade Dreaming of the sunlight Spinnin’ around in the shade Dreaming of the sunlight

I’ve been feeling so lonesome Since I've had that dream As from then on the word home Really doesn’t seem to mean a thing I realized that I was frozen When I tried to scream Then I decided that the word home Really wasn’t gonna mean a thing Never again would mean a thing to me I won’t hide from myself I won’t hide from myself I’m making up my mind Oh please, I need some time To get up, to get high And find another reason to survive One day I’m gonna lose control I’m gonna fall And I might be out of my mind But there has to be a reason to survive Give me a reason to survive I won’t hide from myself I won’t hide from myself I’ve been driving off the road Since I couldn’t find A single answer in the code I stuck to in the dream I left behind I’ll marry you and stay forever You know I’ll try But if we can’t achieve my goals together Sure I gotta leave before I die Will you let me leave before I die? I won’t hide from myself I won’t hide from myself I won’t hide from myself I won’t hide from myself
