Lyrics

Singles


I ride easy on the morning
On the morning city sun
I rest easy with the daydreams
With the daydreams that I love
Morning shadows taking breath
Taking breath, taking life
Morning shadows where have you gone
Where have you gone, where have you gone

Don’t lie, don’t lie to me
No no no don’t lie to me

Pass the rich one, pass the rich one
Pass the poor one, bring it down
I saw Moses and he told us
Just to walk without a crown
Listen to the beating, beating, beating, beating
The beating of my heart
Morning shadow, morning shadow
Taking everything I got

Don’t lie, don’t lie to me
No no no don’t lie to me
No no no don’t lie to me

You left me lying, left me lying
with my face into the ground
You came around, came around
And took the happiness I found
Everything, everything
Everything was black and white
You took my heart from the start
And drove off into the night

No no no don’t lie to me
No no no don’t lie to me
No no no don’t lie to me
No no no don’t lie to me

Seven circles astronauts
The smell of death and the beating stops

An evil eye tied round my neck
I keep it close so I don’t forget

Don’t forget

One last touch and it burns my lips
With my eyes closed I ride the devils trip

I ride the devils trip

Love is blind when hate can see
So I can still feel you standing next to me

Standing next to me

She’s pulling me under
Taking me with her
Places I don’t want to go

Feel the thunder
Clocks keep on ticking baby
A time that I don’t want to know

Separate bedrooms
Creeping in corridors
I’m sure that we’ve been here before

Oh how this night is taking over
The clocks are screaming out
And I don’t really want to hold you
What is this mess that we found

People are talking
Waiting ’til your back’s turned
And now it’s up against the wall

There’s nowhere to turn to
You’re getting so desperate
You’re nervous waiting for the call

Oh how this night is taking over
The clocks are screaming out
And I don’t really want to hold you
What is this mess that we found

Feel me awake
Breathing on your shoulder
I’ll take his place
If you come a little closer

Now it’s all over
I’m a distant memory
A memory you try and forget
Now it’s all over
I’m a distant memory
Yet you ain’t seen nothing yet

Oh how this night is taking over
The clocks are screaming out
And I don’t really want to hold you
What is this mess that we found

Feel me awake
Breathing on your shoulder
I’ll take his place
If you come a little closer

Come a little closer

I’m just on time
Couldn’t get it right
So I threw it to the sea
To be washed out

Sand in my toes
God only knows
How the story goes
Feeling washed out

And this feeling numbs
Dropped the smoking gun
And the tears begun
I’m a wash out

I’m a stop out here
I’m a wash out too
I can’t stop my fear
Of being normal with you

Turned pastel blue
Thinking about you
Even though he’s trying not to
Washed out

Second chance cliché
Coming back my way
What an opportunity to be
Washed out

I’m a stop out here
I’m a wash out too
I can’t stop my fear
Of being normal with you

Good Weird


Shot a bullet straight to your head
You got a feeling you’re gonna regret
You set the scene, a catastrophic event
The devil’s rolling out his red carpet

You’re not the same but we can pretend
Shifting shapes, forgetting your friends
Swapping sides, could this be end
The devil’s rolling out his red carpet again

You just wait
I will be there
Wait and see
It’s a catastrophe

Just you wait
I will be there
Wait and see
It’s a catastrophe

The sun so sure, it beats on your neck
Your mind so pure, there’s no evil left
Figure it out and try to reset
The devil’s rolling out his red carpet again

Your mind has changed, decisions are made
I keep on waiting while you’re playing your games
You keep on hanging up, you don’t have to hesitate
The devil’s rolling out his red carpet again

You just wait
I will be there
Wait and see
It’s a catastrophe

Just you wait
I will be there
Wait and see
It’s a catastrophe

The devil’s carpet ain’t what you need
It’s a forgotten sensibility
You got it

Verse

Dmaj7
Oh brother
A
Please listen to what I say
F#m
Meet me in the morning time
E
So I can get you off my mind

Oh sister
Don’t you shed a single tear
Come over a little while
Promise that I’ll make you smile
Hear me crying

Chorus

E
You keep looking over my shoulder
So how come you’re my moonlight
E
You keep looking over my shoulder
So how come you’re my moonlight
A
Where have you gone
E
The only one I thought would stick around
C#m
You keep looking over my shoulder
A
So how come you’re my moonlight

E E E G x4

Verse

So righteous
Deviate your dreams tonight
Point them to the darkest sky
Shut your eyes and just take fire
Feel you flying

Words on fire
He needs a cut down to the point
Crawling through the desert sands
Searching for the promise land
You’ll never find it

Chorus

Outro

Dmaj7 C#maj7…

I remember
When I said I’ll be there
But I kept you waiting on
I recall
You said you had the greatest of them all

You were wrong
How wrong you were
You were wrong
How wrong were you
You were wrong
So wrong

I remember
When I almost lost my mind
Got confused
When I just wanted to unwind

You were wrong
How wrong you were
You were wrong
How wrong were you
You were wrong
So wrong

Take the clocks back to when I really used to care
But we can’t have that back cuz I’m changing

You were wrong
How wrong you were
You were wrong
How wrong were you

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for a life line
to give me more time
Time to take
Time to take and keep it safe
For rainy days

So let the rain pour down on me
Let the river roll through
I can’t tell how it’s gonna be
I can’t trust you

Watch the waves on my face
Watch the waves crashing down

I’ve been wishing
I’ve been hoping for a new skin
To start it all again

So let the rain pour down on me
Let the river roll through
I can’t tell how it’s gonna be
I can’t trust you

Watch the waves on my face
Watch the waves crashing down
Watch the waves crashing down

So watch the rain fall
Baby watch the rain fall

I found a way
To deal with pain

What are you crying for
Baby what are you crying for

When all it takes
Is a little refrain

So watch the rain fall
Baby watch the rain fall

So let the rain pour down on me
Let the river roll through
I can’t tell how it’s gonna be
I can’t trust you
