Track Name: Whispers From My Mirror
Whispers from my mirror,
And children go past my window calling names,
Never was it clearer,
The sound of the strangers' voices,
And all they say.

And when they come for me I'm ready to go.

And there's no way back for me now,
She came to tell me it's my time,
And with no-one holding me down,
I'll leave my human form behind.

Whispers from my mirror,
From my mirror,
From my mirror,
Meet me there,
Meet me there,
Meet me there,
Meet me there.
Track Name: My Humble Home
What am I, what's the time,
Have I lost my way again,
And have I become blind to seeing salvation?
I'm along for the ride,
But I feel I can't disguise,
All the thoughts in my mind of this revelation.

But I won't deal what you gave me,
I'm leaving alone,
I'm living inside my humble home,
So leave what you gave me alone.

What did I have to cry,
To get all my joy from you,
How do I still survive when running on empty.
When alone for a while,
And I feel my spirit rise,
My own time, my surprise, my celibate entry,

And I won't deal what you gave me,
I'm leaving alone,
I'm living inside my humble home,
Won't deal what you gave me.
I'm leaving alone,
I'm living inside my humble home,
So leave what you gave me.

(Get up, get up, get up toy soldier,)
Don't forget the things I told you,
(Get up, get up, get up toy soldier,)
Don't worry about the things they've shown you,
(Get up, get up, get up toy soldier,)
Don't forget the things I told you,
(Get up, get up, get up toy soldier,)
Forget about the things they called you, yeah.

(Get up, get up, get up toy soldier,)
Forget about the names they all called you.

And I won't deal what you gave me,
I'm leaving alone,
I'm living inside my humble home,
Won't deal what you gave me.
I'm leaving alone,
I'm living inside my humble home,
Won't deal what you gave me.
I'm leaving alone,
I'm living inside my humble home,

You'll never convince me,
Again.
Track Name: District 10
The siren's sound and the air is full of treason,
The crystal's clean from the house built underground,
They board up all the holes so you can't see them,
And the torch light shines when there's no-one else around.

The dogs run wild, there's a girl on every corner,
A mischief riot on the bench of every park,
And no-one here has the grace or care to warn you,
Of the things that lurk when the daylight turns to dark.

It's not to do with the flock you choose to fly for,
And it's not to do with the district that you're from,
It's all to do with the cause you choose to die for,
And the time you wait for the fateful hour to come.

A silent smash in the dead of night,
Alarm bells ring and we don't care why,
The broken glass on every floor,
Mad men breaking down the neighbour's door,
The fists and feet thrown for all to see,
A gunshot sound from a distant street,
But still it pays to stay around here,
If you can put aside your fears.

So wipe your feet, take the keys, enjoy your time here,
Don't get caught on the wrong side of the door.
Track Name: Shadows In The Park
Casting weary eyes upon the dark,
Overlooking shadows in the park,
Holding out eternally,
With hope of some day boxing up your heart.
Standing here and wasting all my time,
Searching for the answers I won't find,
To questions I don't need to ask,
And problems that were never really mine.

I never understood the reason that you turned away,
And gave your soul to someone who would turn your world to waste,
Still I find myself here standing by,
And waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you.

Something in the words you waited for,
Made me wish I said them all before,
And if I gave more time to us,
I'd sit down here and write a thousand more,
And a thousand more,
See the shadows gather in the storm,
Pour another drink to keep us warm,
A loving truth so far away,
Where faces take on many different forms.

I know we could be happy here and find ourselves a life,
Of never ending harmony where shadows turn to light,
Until then I'll be here standing by,
And waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you.

I never understood the reason that you turned away,
And gave your soul to someone who would turn your world to waste,
Still I find myself here standing by,
And waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you,

I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you.
Track Name: Bubble World
Living in a bubble world with my troubles,
Yearning for a better place to be,
Caught up in another time where you don't ask why,
The strangers seem so keen,
Try to find a way outside to see the smiles,
On faces that made me,
Everything is different now, with a different vow,
A promise made to me,
Learning to discover how and where and why,
You gave me everything,
Hope we can be happy now in these changing times,
And all that they might bring.

And I'm gonna stay forever,
And I will give my all to you my love,
A promise we made together,
That I will bring you all you're dreaming of,
I'm going somewhere else where,
I can tell the truth about my world,
And how I live in it,
'Cause this is love and what I think of it.

Flying in a different sky, never knowing why,
The echoes beckon me,
Warming to the glow outside as I near the time,
To see what others see,
Comfortable and quiet now, I look around,
To take in everything,
Riding on another road to another home,
To see what it may bring.

And I'm gonna fly right over,
And I will give my all to you my love,
I'll always offer a shoulder,
And I will bring you all you're dreaming of,
I'm going somewhere else where,
I will see the good of those around,
And how they deal with it,
And I, I, I know how I'll live with it.

And it's always bright,
And it's always right,
I'm going somewhere else where,
I'll tell the truth about my world,
And how I live in it,
'Cause this is love and what I think of it.

Growing old in seconds now with a different crowd,
The wonders we have seen,
Calling every other day just to hear you say,
You'll still be here with me,
Here with me,
You're always here with me,
Here with me,
You're always here with me.
Track Name: Open
I've seen it open up before and it made me want to sweat,
'Cause I really feel that I have seen nothing yet,
She's standing right in front of me and she seems to want to cry,
And in time I hope I have the chance to ask her why,
This plight is so predictable and it makes me want to frown,
And January always makes me feel down,
Surrounded by compatriots but I haven't got one friend,
As it feels like we're all heading for a bitter end.

How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?
How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?

It's something we once started but we will never see it through,
Because now there are a million and one things to do,
And I'm tired of being angry now and I hate to feel upset,
But I really feel that I have seen nothing yet.

How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?
How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?

I tried hard to work this out,
I just want to break down.

I've found so much to live for now and it helped me find my way,
And it helped me see the sense in life another day,
I thought I had the answers but I never knew it all,
So I lie in wait until I hear her faithful call,
This story's so predictable and it makes me want to sweat,
'Cause I really feel that I have seen nothing yet,
I stand here in good company, all waiting for a sign,
And until we see her beckon we'll just stand in line.

How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?
How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?

How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?
How long should I stay,
Tell me how long should I?
Track Name: Getting Colder
Tried to catch you for a while,
Turn your back again, turn on who you are,
Wear your perfect phony smile,
'Til you find love again and make a brand new start.

All the lessons still to learn,
What desire brings to your empty heart,
Pass the point of no return,
Give up everything, suffer for your art.

And I feel it getting colder,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way I poured it out,
And I think it's time you travel to a different plain,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way you are.

All the messages you heard,
All the truths untold that keep your lies apart,
Raise your fingers to the world,
Hide away from those that made you who you are.

And I feel it getting colder,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way I poured it out,
And I think it's time you travel to a different plain,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way I poured it out,
And you cannot forget me, you won't forget me,
You cannot forget what you held so dear,
Does it tear you apart,
Does it play on your heart,
And I think I should be laughing 'til my head explodes,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way you are.

And I feel it getting colder,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way I poured it out,
And I think it's time you travel to a different plain,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way I poured it out,
And you cannot forget me, you won't forget me,
You cannot forget what you almost had,
Does it tear you apart,
Does it play on your heart,
And I think I should be laughing 'til my head explodes,
That's the way I told you,
That's the way you are.
Track Name: My Favourite Friend
Slowly strolling up and down that hall,
As we forget all about the art of conversation,
Sitting down as words begin to form,
And I think about our coming destination,
And I think about the better times that lie in wait for me.

Fighting off the troubles on our way,
As we build our growing empire together,
One by one our demons fall away,
And we leave behind the dark and stormy weather,
And we move towards a better life,
And a home where we belong,
But without you I won't get there,
So let's drive forever on.

So here's to you, my favourite friend,
The one I haven't lost at all,
And I hope what you get from me is all I am,
Cheers to days that never end,
For they're the best days of them all,
But the greatest of them all are still ahead.

Side by side we focus for a while,
As we ready for the things we may uncover,
Times of sorrow, times that make us smile,
And a million times that we're still to discover,
And together we found happiness,
And our dreams are realised.

So here's to you, my favourite friend,
The one I never lost at all,
And I hope what you get from me is all I am,
'Cause part of you and part of me,
Will soon be everything,
And soon mean everything to you and I.

I've found my way to say just what I mean,
I'll call today the day I found belief,
I've found my way to where I should have been,
And found my everything,
My everything.

Slowly strolling up and down that hall.
Track Name: Experience Me
It's gone too far, think it's out of my hands again,
But you'll never know what you do to me, woman,
But I can't wait to see you again,
Like I always do.

There never is enough time to be angry,
Experience me, I won't be here for long,
Experience me, I won't be here for long,

But I can't wait to see you again,
Like I always do.

This rigid complexity of love,
Means that you will be there,
And I'll sit with you in the twilight,
And despair while you stare.

Sing a song for the love of your life to remain,
I only wish I could be around to love you for longer,
Experience me, I never want to come down.

But you'll never know what you do to me, woman,
You'll never know what you do to me, woman,
You'll never know what you do to me, woman.
Track Name: Everything Human
You've been on my mind,
With all that you gave to me lately,
And all that you are is all I need.

Surrender my world,
And everything beautiful in it,
To be by your side one more minute,
Before you go.

I'm here waiting for the call,
I'm waiting for the day we go home,
I'm here waiting for the call,
I'm praying for us all to go home.

I'd give up my time,
And everything making me human,
To be by your side now and evermore,
Before you go.

I'm here waiting for the call,
I'm waiting for the day we go home,
I'm here waiting for, I'm waiting for, I'm waiting for...

Now I'm sorry,
And I'll never leave you alone here,
And I'll always be at your call,
At your every call,
Not to worry,
I'll always be in your corner,
And I'll always be by your side,
Now and evermore.

You've been on my mind,
With all that you've done for me lately,
I'll be by your side now and evermore.
Track Name: Poison, Lies and Boredom
So here we go,
Back to the place we came from,
And we know good will come,
Run from the ghosts,
Run there with me and take on,
The unknown, guide me home.

If you want to be free from the poison,
If you want to be free from the lies,
If you want to be free from boredom,
Then maybe we could just run for our lives.

Take all that's yours,
Take what you need and then some,
Take your pride, take your time,
Smile between tears,
Laugh at the words you won't hear,
When you're done, when you're gone.

If you want to be free from the poison,
If you want to be free from the lies,
If you want to be free from boredom,
Then maybe we could just run for our lives.

You won't settle for the hand you got,
You're owed a life without all the tears,
So you set off on a different path,
To find a way to run down the years,
No fear,
You're better off here.

Safe from the storm,
Safe from the evil's that won't go,
And in time they will know,
How good it feels,
To break the chain and head home,
To be done, be at one.

If you want to be free from the poison,
If you want to be free from the lies,
If you want to be free from boredom,
Then maybe we could just run for our lives.

(If you want to be free from the poison,)
(If you want to be free from the lies,)
(If you want to be free from boredom,)
Then maybe we could just run for our lives.
Track Name: Anna Angel
Anna, Anna Angel,
I wouldn't want to be anywhere else,
Hide me from all danger,
And together we will be just like everyone else,
But if you haven't fallen so far you can't,
See past that we're enemies,
Then I'll wait for the day you reach out to me.

Deepest, deepest dreamer,
I never want to wake or let it all go,
For my misdemeanours,
I wouldn't ever say it was never my fault,
And if I haven't said it too many times then,
I'll crawl back under my rock,
And pray for the day you return for me.

'Cause there's only so far you'll go,
To help me realise my goal,
But there's only so much I know,
So drag me up into your world.

Find me, take me closer,
And maybe we will see what we never before,
No-one can expose us,
For anything we are or anything more,
And I promise you to give you my hand,
And on our hilltop we'll stand,
And stay for the rest of eternity.
