Track Name: Spark
I've been sleeping in a hail & ride
For the past few nights
Looking for somewhere else that I can confide
Somewhere away from these fluorescent lights

And we're all bathing in a plastic fate
Watch our foundations deteriorate
The surface of your lies is starting to rise
And your face paint's beginning to flake

Let's start a fire
Track Name: Music For The Dark (Misery)
baby have you noticed
it's getting rainier round here
and it's getting colder
gonna have to move on in

and baby have you noticed
i'm getting sick of this big thing
Street preachers are selling me sin
this is a tragedy

misery

and i can feel it in my bones
in my flesh and all i know
is that I'm not lonely
I'm not lonely but only with you

it's just gone new years
time to resolve or revolt
i could be new here
but I'm not the one at fault

what are we trying to avoid?

misery

we got the light now

misery
Track Name: A Waste Of Dreaming
trading independence for security
all so shrowded in anxiety
i got my demons inside of me
sleep is just a waste of dreaming

under the eyes of new ministers
she died when they said 'finish her'
we're the dream inside a narcoleptic race

oh love

neon crosses hanging high
freedom's a weakness until you try
one day we're all gonna die
what kind of mark will we have left behind?

someone out there is watching you
but not in the way you'd like them to
you can't turn it off, nowhere to go
dreams are just a waste of feeling

i remember the day they took you away
the music died when they said 'here's today'
but we're the dream inside a narcoleptic race

oh love

neon crosses hanging high
freedom's a weakness until you try
one day we're all gonna die
what kind of mark will we have left behind?

(boom, boom)
give me the chance and it is gonna go
(boom, boom)
well get me in and i will make it blow
(boom, boom)
nobody really ever wants to die
but we are the dead

(boom, boom)
give me the chance and it is gonna go
(boom, boom)
well get me in and i will make it blow
(boom, boom)
nobody really ever wants to die
I dont want to die

we got kids dressing like they're middle aged
slip on a suit and call yourself new wave
always gonna be another number slave
5,6,7,8

neon crosses hanging high
freedom's a weakness until you try
one day we're all gonna die
what kind of mark will we have left behind?
Track Name: The Miracle Kids
im not stuck in here
i am choosing to hold this
you are deciding what i am thinking
deciding what i am thinking

this is my first and last
offence against your faith
you can't put that megaphone against me
i wouldn't want to touch you

and it's terrible how the last of us true,
we can't step out into something new

but we're not done just yet
lightning's not out quite yet
watch what you say or they
might just catch us

this is my last request
praying for something new
i've never felt so lethargic
i need more from you

this is my first and last
offence against your faith
you can't put that megaphone against me
i wouldn't want to touch you

and it's terrible how the last of us true,
we can't step out into something new

but we're not done just yet
lightning's not out quite yet
watch what you say or they
might just catch us

this is my last request
praying for something new
i've never felt so lethargic
i need more from you

but we're not done just yet
lightning's not out quite yet
watch what you say or they
might just catch us
Track Name: Afterglow
chasing dreams that died a long time ago
lost amongst your towers
and i can't pretend that I'm not looking for a different end to this

i've got scars on my knuckles and life in these eyes
i will never cower
and i won't pretend that I'm looking for a different end to this

city's drowning in dust and smoke
it's the end of another day
has this all been just a joke
the men at the reigns are losing control

and we're lost, lost, lost in the afterglow
lost, lost, where are we gonna go?
lost, lost where it's blue, it's green, and indigo
but is this gonna last?

we pollute the room with caffeine and cigarettes
it's the bleak end of the blues
and i can't pretend that I'm not looking for a different end to this

you've got cut up knees, and life in those eyes
a million lights shining through
and i won't pretend that I'm looking for a different end to you

city's drowning in dust and smoke
it's the end of another day
has this all been just a joke
the men at the reigns are losing control

and we're lost, lost, lost in the afterglow
lost, lost, where are we gonna go?
lost, lost where it's blue, it's green, and indigo
but is this gonna last?
Track Name: KissKissKiss
no you know that i can't see too good
so im pulling back on all your lies
and if you so much as breathe out of time
i'll fucking strangle you

i'll take you out on a black car ride
don't give a flying fuck who's inside
take my hands and cover your eyes
get up, get up, get up, get up, get out

and if you dare to look for somewhere else to hide
we've got black cats you can hypnotise
sinking ships and moral alibis
get up, get up, get up, get up, get out

(this is a protest)
against your very beliefs
(this is a protest)
against your social disease
(this is a protest)
against your very beliefs
against your social disease
against everything you will ever be

won't you be happy when the batteries die?

no you know that i can't see too good
so im pulling back on all your lies
and if you so much as breathe out of time
i'll fucking strangle you

i'll take you out on a black car ride
don't give a flying fuck who's inside
take my hands and cover your eyes
get up, get up, get up, get up, get out

bring your best razor blades
and we'll rain on some parade
paint it black, bleeding red
what's one more voice inside your head?

(this is a protest)
against your very beliefs
(this is a protest)
against your social disease
(this is a protest)
against your very beliefs
against your social disease
against everything you will ever be
Track Name: breathe?
we're the builders

take my heart, you broke it anyway

if we were gonna make a difference we'd already be dead
i'll meet you at the hospital party where my demons can't find me

i gutted the world and bled it dry
just wanted to see what its insides looked like
stitched her up, worked to revive
you have to believe in order to feel alive

but i believe

and break my heart, you stole it anyway

all we are is pieces of metal all tangled in flesh
we got out alive but dare we ever forget these words
with some rustled up meaning

if only you could see things
from the other side of those beat up headphones
they dont make you free

i gutted the world and bled it dry
just wanted to see what its insides looked like
stitched her up, worked to revive
you have to believe in order to feel alive

but i believe

so why can't i breathe?
Track Name: Teenage Fantasy
you can never cross the ocean if you're scared of leaving home
so take everything i give you and i hope you're happy when you're gone
if i was to wake up breathing out of someone else's lungs
would i be able to appreciate that i dont have flaws; i am one?

well I'm gonna hate the fame but that's until i get there
all you gotta do is play the game, play it if you dare

please dont break, cause there's no heroes anymore
the broken remains of a perfect teenage fantasy
there's no-one left to step in and settle the score
the scores of men are coming back and there's no-one left to slow them down

the more sadness that you amputate the more the lights will dim
the more and more you lose yourself the more you become like him
inside this cornucopia of love and lies and compromise
you stand in front of bathroom mirrors practising your smile

well I'm gonna hate the fame but that's until i get there
all you gotta do is play the game, play it if you dare

please dont break, cause there's no heroes anymore
the broken remains of a perfect teenage fantasy
there's no-one left to step in and settle the score
the scores of men are coming back and there's no-one left to slow them down

please dont break, cause there's no heroes anymore
the broken remains of a perfect teenage fantasy
there's no-one left to step in and settle the score
the scores of men are coming back and there's no-one left to slow them down
please dont break, cause there's no heroes anymore
the broken remains of a perfect teenage fantasy
Track Name: Very Much Alive
i figured out when i was young
that the challenges of the world would be lost by everyone
and when it's all said and done
you know, things change

like the constellations in the sky
our place underneath the moon on high
i think this is our chance to try
and escape from all the empty lies

let's disappear together

i suppose we've had our fun
the flashlights over power will be blinding everyone
so put the keys in, lets just drive
let's run while we're still alive

to see the constellations in the sky
our place underneath the moon on high
i think this is our chance to try
and escape from all the empty lies

let's disappear together

(disappear)

i will lead you away from the dark
and stand within an inch of a spark
this surgery inside our hearts
these fires, they keep us apart

i will lead you away from the dark
Track Name: The Poison Race
preorder another broken promise on economy delivery
this is the very last time i'll catch myself hoping to just bump into happiness
so quiet you can hear the moving billboards change
so deep you can't swim back up
behind a human-being shaped brick wall

a generation of doctors
but who's gonna save us when we all bury our heads in the sand?
we're born to die; it's black and white
you'll never live if you never learn to fight

and are we falling down and out again?
is this more than we'd ever bargained for?
i know that i'll hate
(myself in the morning)

a generation of doctors
but who's gonna save us when we all bury our heads in the sand?
we're born to die; it's black and white
you'll never live if you never learn to fight

we are arch enemies
bound together like gold and jealousy
i'm gonna take it all back

we are arch enemies
bound together like teens and misery
i'm gonna take it all back

a generation of doctors
but who's gonna save us when we all bury our heads in the sand?
we're born to die; it's black and white
you'll never live if you never learn to fight
Track Name: The 45_slow
this car's pretty dead with all the crap i've said
but she's got eyes that'll knock you twice to the ground
bright blue, just like you, unlike anybody else
this has got to be a hoax

she asked me to drive, we were dancing in the street
and why are we still alive if all we ever do is compete

it's the last gas for 90 miles
we'll be out in 45
live to defile
we'll be dancing on the roadside

take my hand, but please dont drop it I've only got one left
take my heart, but please be careful i dont have a spare
bright blue, just like you, unlike anybody else
this has got to be a hoax

it's the last gas for 90 miles
we'll be out in 45
live to defile
we'll be dancing on the roadside
how about a dream,
or something to think?
a thought, or a breath at least?
just a sign of life?

cause we're a fast food meal from dry
oh what i'd give for your home's light
we've got a flat, we're back on fumes
we didn't plan this right

we are the silence in between
memories of places that we've been
the days when we ruled the world
it was always me and you, girl

it's the last gas for 90 miles
we'll be out in 45
live to defile
we'll be dancing on the roadside
how about a dream,
or something to think?
a thought, or a breath at least?
just a sign of life?

we are the silence in between
memories of places that we've been
the days when we ruled the world
it was always me and you, girl
