Track Name: A Crack in the Clouds
There’s a crack in the clouds
I’ve been carrying around
I’ve been down so long

I’ve been the wrong way around
I’ve been upside and down
I’ve been down so long

I’d be mad not to love you
And I am not mad
I’ve just been down too long

I am not broken
So you cannot fix me
Yeah I’m just no good as a measure of you

‘Cause if you can’t watch me mend
Then how will you know?
How will you know, how will you know?

But if you watch me closely
You’ll see me catch fire
As I flutter around your flame

‘Cause you burn me like fuel
Like a million watt bulb
Nothing lights me up like you

Yeah you burn me like fuel
Like a million watt bulb
Nothing lights me up like you
Track Name: Endless Sky
You don’t want to think
You don’t want to feel
You can’t stand yourself
Or anyone else
Or anything real
You can’t stand the sun
You can’t stand the rain
You don’t want to know
You forgo the joy
Just to spare yourself pain
You’d rather be drunk
You’d rather be stoned
Why bother to live
When all that you miss
You don’t even know

I love to be free
Free to be loved
I’m wild as the wind
I never give in
I rise like the sun
I never hold back
I never look down
I don’t hedge my bets
Don’t dwell on regrets
And I’m never alone

I’d rather soar
Like a bird in the sky
Than sit on my ass
And never get past
The feelings inside
Yeah I’d rather fly
Through the endless night
Than lie on my back
Waiting to live
Or wanting to die
Track Name: Gone to Earth
Our time here
May slip away
But my love for you
Will never fade
I’ve heard the words
All things must pass
But my love for you
Was made to last

Where are you my love?
I’ve gone to Earth

Are these just words
For me to sing?
I love you more
Than anything
Or are they things
For you to hear?
So you can keep my love
In case you need it

Where are you my love?
I’ve gone to Earth

I lost my place
In time and space
I’m nowhere now
And there’s no escape
I’ll never know
Such love and peace
I’ll never feel
Your sweet release

If the best I’ve got’s not good enough
Not good enough for you
Then the best I’ve got’s not good enough
Not good enough for me too
Track Name: Under You
I’m in heaven when I’m under you
I’m in heaven when I’m under you
I’m in heaven when I’m under you
I’m in heaven when I’m under you

I get to thinking
As I lie beside you
About the wonders
That I’ll find inside you

I’m in heaven when I’m under you
I’m in heaven when I’m under you
I’m in heaven when I’m under you
I’m in heaven when I’m under you
Track Name: Weary of the Walls
I know this pain, the fear and the doubt
They’re tattooed on the tears that we can’t get out
We lose the control you never needed to have
And cheers for just hanging around
I know when I hear the darkness start to speak
It reels off words that mean fuck all to anything
The mind closes down, the heart never sings
And love only works if you can let it in

I’m weary of the walls
Are you weary of the walls?

Are we weary of the walls? Are we tired of the scene?
Or are we right-thinking automatic self-centred shit machines?
Is love the answer or just part of the scam?
Am I just a sucker for a masterplan?
And I can love you ‘til the sky falls in
But you’ve got to love yourself just a bit
I will love you ‘til the world explodes
Love you from your head to your heart to your toes

I’m weary of the walls
Are you weary of the walls?

I’m weary of the walls
Are you weary of the walls?
I’m weary of the walls
Are you weary of the walls?
Track Name: The One You Left Behind
Its like the sun’s gone down forever
Its like the sky’s gone out for good
Please shine your light into my darkness
I know you’d do it if you could
And I’ve never been afraid
Of anybody
And you taught me
Not to ever tow the line
You gave me all the good
That you had in you
And I’m proud to be
The one you left behind

Its like my centre’s shifted sideways
Its like my soul’s been caught and tied
Yet still I feel you with me
Somehow you’re by my side
Always tell the truth
And always think of others
But be yourself
And never compromise
You gave me all the light
That you had in you
And I’m proud to be
The one you left behind

I didn’t know it was the last time
I didn’t know it was goodbye
I didn’t know that you were leaving
But I will keep your faith alive
If they’d hurt the ones you loved
You would have killed them
If they’d come for you
Then you’d have done the time
You gave me all the love
That you had in you
And I’m proud to be
The one you left behind
Yes I’m proud to be
The one you left behind
Track Name: Missing
Let’s take out the trash of our poisonous past
Tear down the walls that are holding us back
Slay all the monsters and ward off the ghosts
Lean on the people that love us the most

Let me give you the love, all the love you deserve
There are so many ways to make peace with the world
I’ll read you the stories and sing you the songs
We can answer your questions and right all your wrongs

‘Cause I miss you, I miss you, I wish I was with you

You know who I am and you know that I love you
Don’t live in the hole of the sorrow that took you
I’d give you all that I am and I’d never desert you
I can stand on my own but I’d rather stand with you

‘Cause I miss you, I miss you, I wish I was with you
Track Name: How We Used to Live
One flash of life
This world’s left you behind
Insane, alright
Your heart and head collide
You don’t remember
How we used to live

We stood still too long
Now everything is wrong
The time has come
For us to run and run
We dream the same dream
We think love’s everything
We’re insane
We’re alright
One life and then we die
Try to remember
How we used to live

We’re going nowhere
We just live in our despair
We feel ‘til we can’t think
We can’t love so we just give
Untouched, unknown
A glass heart with no home
One flash of life
This world’s left us behind
We don’t remember
How we used to live

I’m so lonely
You’re so lonely
We’re so lonely
All so lonely

So low alone
Low and lonely

‘Cause we don’t remember
How we used to live
Track Name: Goodbye Voyager
Hey you
Where’d you go?
Back to the land where nothing grows
Back to the place that fear only knows
Hey you
Where you been?
Seeking things I’ve never seen
Chasing dreams upon the wind
You’ll never even know

I’ve come so far I can’t go back
Lived so hard and loved so bad
Gained the world and lost the world
These words have said it all
Thrown the caution to the wind
Set sail on suffering
It doesn’t matter where you go
It don’t matter where you’ve been

Don’t need no gods to lift me up
I don’t need you, I don’t need love
I’m higher than the sun
And deeper than the ocean
Hands together eyes closed
Hands together eyes closed
Hands together eyes closed
Hands together eyes closed

Days are long but years are short
And the will is just not strong enough
And life is just not long enough
For praying like a fool
But I’ve kneeled so long I can’t get up
I’ve cried until the tears dried up
And I’d give you every drop of blood
I have if it will soothe you

Hands together eyes closed
Hands together eyes closed
Hands together eyes closed
Hands together eyes closed
Track Name: The Rainbow
You walk into the room and the sun starts to rise
You sit in a chair and the universe smiles
You give me a look and my world starts to turn
I’m trying to stay cool but I’m starting to burn

I’m getting in deep but I don’t give a damn
‘Cause when I’m with you I just like who I am
My imagination just couldn’t invent you
If I didn’t know better I’d say heaven has sent you

Wish I could light up your darkness with fires of love
And be yours to lean on whatever may come
But if I could love you forever it would not be enough

So I’ll wake up in the morning
And follow you to where the rainbow ends

You wrap me in velvet, your love is the best
If I died in your arms I would have no regrets
And I’m happy for us but I’m sad for the rest

Never known any other who could touch me this way
Let me be your refuge away from the pain
And I’ll pray for tomorrow but I’ll live for today

I’ll wake up in the morning
And follow you to where the rainbow ends
I’ll wake up in the morning
And follow you to where the rainbow ends
