Track Name: Like This and That
Well someone said it's over now
Looking like a log
You got me down
I see the moments of my belief
I've been so afraid
That you would be
Like this and that
Like this and that

Well baby, now it's someone else
Looking like a log baby
How can you stand
That just your first look has been adored
No-one ever touched
you down below
Like this and that
Like this and that

Well why don't you go suck an egg
And take it further than you want
Well why don't you go suck an egg
And take it further than you want
Like this and that
Like this and that
Like this and that
Like this and that

Well woman, now you are so cold
I was looking great baby
'till you said no
So many times I have been adored
No-one ever made
Me sink so low
Like this and that
Like this and that

Well why don't you go suck an egg
And take it further than you want
Well why don't you go suck an egg
And take it further than you want

And take it further than you want

Well why don't you go suck an egg
And take it, take it, take it further
Well why don't you go suck an egg
And take it further than you want

Track Name: Bandage Broken
Bandage broken, don't you see,
I believe in miracles, not she
Fighters took us into their lair,
I believe in anything, not she

Bandage broken, don't you see,
I believe in miracles, not she
Fighters took us into their lair,
I believe in what she does, all day

Look at my mind, I don't cry,
Tears were never broken
You can come again,
If you face me

You were there, lying down,
Where you have been choking
You can come again,
With a change of heart

Bandage broken, don't you see,
I believe in miracles, not she
Fighters took us into their lair,
I believe in anything, not she

Bandage broken, we both have changed,
But some scars will still remain, and fade
Fighters took us into their lair,
I believe in who we were, does she

Look at my mind, I don't cry,
Tears were never broken
You can come again,
If you face me

You were there, lying down,
Where you have been choking
You can come again,
With a change of heart

Bandage broken, don't you see,
I believe in miracles, not she
Track Name: Isn't It Another Story
What's the story, haven't I trusted you
Everytime I have been awaiting long, yeah

I believe, baby, that I was gone for you
Every tear has always felt so strong, yeah

What it was, you never told me,
things were always great, no
Silently I had to live my life, aah

I was gone baby, now I just long for you
All our days were always lost in style, yeah

What is the way to hide
Well I've been holding on
So many tears I shed
I've been had

Whatever you did wrong
I always moved along
So many tears I shed
I've been had

What's the story, haven't I trusted you
Everytime my heart was pounding long, oh.

I believe woman that you just didn't see
All the time I always felt too strong, oh.

What it was, you never told me,
things were always nice, honey.
Our arrangement suited me just fine, yeah.

You forgot, baby, what I had done for you.
Now you've lost the things you've always liked, yeah.

What is the way to hide
Well I've been holding on
So many tears I shed
I've been had

Whatever you did wrong
I always moved along
So many tears I shed
I've been had

Isn't this another story
Isn't this another crazy little lie
Isn't this another secret
Isn't this something you cunningly try to hide

Have I done this to you
All those tears I never cried
Maybe I have fooled you
And the truth turned into lies

Isn't this another story
Isn't this another crazy little lie
Isn't this another secret
Isn't this something you cunningly try to hide

Have I done this to you
All those tears I never cried
Maybe I have fooled you
And the truth is what I always denied

I don't mind

What's the story, haven't I trusted you
Everyday my heart was wrapped in lies, ooh

I was raging, but I didn't know
That you were afraid to make love grow, aah

What it was, you never told me,
things were always true, baby
So many tears that I have lost inside, yeah

Every day, baby, I have longed for you
Honey, most (of) my life was lost like this, ooh

What is the way to hide
Well I've been holding on
So many tears I shed
I've been had

Whatever you did wrong
I always moved along
So many tears I shed
I've been had

Isn't this another story
Isn't this another crazy little lie
Isn't this another secret
Isn't this something you cunningly try to hide

Have I done this to you
All those tears I never cried
Maybe I have fooled you
And the truth turned into lies

Isn't this another story
Isn't this another crazy little lie
Isn't this another secret
Isn't this something you cunningly try to hide

Have I done this to you
All those tears I never cried
Maybe I have fooled you
And the truth is what I always denied

I don't mind
Track Name: Daydream Believer
Listen, this is not what I expected
Listen, this is not what I hoped for
Listen, this is not what I expected
Listen, this is not what I hoped for

Well I was taken by surprise,
I looked you straight into the eyes
and said : "Now what the fuck is this?"
Were you thinking of me or thinking of him
The whole day through

What more do you have to do
Hanging 'round and trying to feel blue
Daydream believer

Listen, this is not what I expected
Listen, this is not what I hoped for
Listen, this is not what I expected
Listen, this is not what I hoped for

Well I was taken by surprise,
I looked you straight into the eyes
and said : "Now what the fuck is this?"
Were you thinking of me or thinking of him
The whole day through

What more do you have to do
Hanging 'round and trying to feel blue
Daydream believer

Listen, this is not what I expected
Listen, this is not what I hoped for
Listen, this is not what I expected
Listen, this is not what I,
this is not what I,
this is not what I,
have been hoping for.
Track Name: They Sent Me
They sent me
Diamonds to be right
We heard them
Sat and wondered why

In all the desert screams
Our love will blow
Baby don't you see

They sent me diamonds to be right

Who noticed
The treasure in our soul
Please don't notice
That I'll be taking all

In all the desert screams
Our love will blow
Baby don't you see

I wanna live
The darkness says that it's the danger of
I wanna smile
The darkness says that it's the danger of

'cause they sent me diamonds to be right

The notions
Of someone that has won
Finally they will
Tell me to move on

In all the desert screams
Our love will blow
Baby don't you see

I wanna live
The darkness says that it's the danger of
I wanna grow
The darkness says that it's the danger of
No no no no, baby
I wanna live
The darkness says that it's the danger of
Oh oh oh, baby
I wanna live
The darkness says that it's the danger of

'cause they sent me diamonds to be right
diamonds to be right
diamonds to be right
Track Name: Raise Your Soul
You've got to rest your soul
to make it all worthwhile
then nobody knows or philosophies
And is it over here
or is it over there
I was the one that knew
there was no time to stare

You've grown cold, but hard to forget
You've gotta raise your soul like mine
You've grown cold, but hard to forget
You've gotta raise your soul like mine
And everything gets down

Everything grows down
Everything gets down
Everything grows down

At first it was great
then sometimes even good
at last I saw that you
should be alone for good
And it is my belief
that you were not my style
you always wanted me
to be another guy

You've grown cold, but hard to forget
You've gotta raise your soul like mine
You've grown cold, but hard to forget
You've gotta raise your soul like mine
And everything gets down

Everything grows down
Everything gets down
Everything grows down

You've grown cold, but hard to forget
You've gotta raise your soul like mine
You've grown cold, but hard to forget
You've gotta raise your soul like mine
And everything gets down
Track Name: Sorry
It's no use, baby, I'm just right for me
You could wonder why I never set you free
Oooh, I am sorry !

A tide takes me back to your side,
You can see it's never long before I stop the ride
And roam back to my darkest side
Baby, I am sorry !

Have you seen the use,
have you heard the choosers
and the preachers whine ?

I am damned and now you know who's the laughing stock
You have seen there's nothing I can work with a lot
I am sorry !

It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing
You have got to continue without me
I hope you see I am sorry !

It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing
You have got to continue without me
I hope you see I am sorry !

A tide takes me back to your side,
You can see it's never long before I stop the ride
And roam back to my darkest side
Baby, I am sorry !

Have you seen the use,
have you heard the moaners
and the groaners whine ?

I am damned and now you know who's the laughing stock
You have seen there's nothing I can work with a lot
I am sorry !

It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing
You have got to continue without me
I hope you see I am sorry !

It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing
You have got to continue without me
I hope you see I am sorry !
Track Name: Calming Down
Calming down
There's no use in dressing up my thoughts babe
The light that shines on you and the dreaming left to do
When you're here babe
The moment when your hand is coming down
Oh my skin moves too
And shrieks babe

All the time your soul has never touched mine and it shows
Every time your sigh will lead me down there, I don't know

Western cross, no rain, no rain

Calming down
There's no use in dressing up my thoughts babe
The light that shines on you and the dreaming left to do
When you're here babe
The moment when your hand is coming down
Oh my skin moves too
And shrieks babe

All the time you've seen when to leave by myself
When I see you bleed, I know it's no use to be sad

Western cross, no rain, no rain
Track Name: Worst Way
I've been taking time,
and I hope that you will follow
I'm subjected to violence
in the worst way

And the morning sun
with that look upon your face
I'm subjected to violence
in the worst way

Every day is yours,
but the morning's got to follow
I'm subjected to violence
in the worst way

When your love is gone
all my hopes just fade away
I'm subjected to violence
in the worst way

Who's to blame,
the trees or the rain

When the rage is high
and your feelings take it over
I'm subjected to violence
in the worst way
Track Name: Wasted Dreams
Where can I
sit and weep
alone for a while.

Willow tree
wasted by me
and broken.

I have worked the day alone
and saw the mess I took for granted
was just my home.

One day they'll see
what is left of me
after all those wasted dreams.

One day they'll see
what is left of me
after all those wasted dreams.

Lonely I have been
I don't know if I can ever go much further than right here
my eyes still see

My hand is stuck
my hair feels like leaves
my head won't budge
my feet are not free
I'll be always here waiting
'till I dream like a tree.

One day they'll see
what is left of me
after all those wasted dreams.

One day they'll see
what is left of me
after all those wasted dreams.

One day they'll see
what is left of me
after all those wasted dreams.

One day they'll see
what is left of me
after all those wasted dreams.

One day they'll see
what is left of me
after all those wasted dreams.
Track Name: I Fell There Within
I was lost,
then the silence was broken
These shivers drove me downtown
I'd been looking for hours,
but nothing was open.
These teardrops drove me downtown.

So much hunger inside me
and I fell there within

I was sitting there and
anywhere I went they could not reach me.
And a hiccup here made all the others
come and try to see me.
Well I know these were the days of love and hate
but I was strong, man, the other one was wrong
and this is not
what I always want to do

So much hunger inside me
and I fell there within
Broken, somehow I'll survive here
and I fell there within

I'm a sick sick mind in a mostly sick sick time
You know that is the reason why I was lost and found
But they were just walkers and talkers
Teaching us what it is like to be alone, mmmmm, oh yeah

I'm a sick sick mind in a mostly sick sick time
You know that is the reason why I was lost and found
But they were just walkers and talkers
Teaching us what it is like to be alone, mmmmm, oh yeah

So much hunger inside me
and I fell there within
Broken, somehow I'll survive here
and I fell there within
Track Name: Never Lose
I wasn't planning on leaving you now
I always thought we'd get by somehow
And that we wouldn't have to lose
Isn't this the time to choose

Was this a way to forget my guilt
What were you doing when the lies were built
Have you been playing with the boys
But I never will lose
Isn't this the time to choose

Was this the widest way of all
Did I believe in the talking walls
And I never will choose

Did you leave like that man on the train, yeah
I said the time has been marching away
I always thought that the sun was good
And I never will choose

Was I a monkey that believes there's no hell
Was I just waiting till our happiness fell
Was this the evening and the dawn
And I never will lose

Was I the righteous or the blame
Have you been crying for the moments I strayed
Have I been holding on to summertimes
And I never will lose
lose


I wasn't planning on leaving you now
I always thought we'd get by somehow
And that we wouldn't have to lose
Isn't this the time to choose

Will you stop listening to the others for once
Be yourself and give us both a chance
So that we wouldn't have to lose
Isn't this the time to choose

Was this the ride that I should never begin
How could I know what were the odds to win
And I never will lose

Do you remember where we lost the thrill, yeah
Can I believe we are lovers and still
Find a way to forget my thoughts
And I never will choose

Is this a way to make me live in the past
Should I forget you and move on at last
Was this my treason or your trust
And I never will lose

I wasn't resting on the edge of the shore
I didn't see that you were longing for more
I never said you had to wait to cry
And I never will lose
lose
Track Name: Us Away
I say life was made for you and me,
it shines.
Baby, oh, you have to see
We've got it all

Time goes quicker when I see you
but the dawn
will chase you away for much too long
You've got it all

And when the morning begins
well then you go your own way
and still they move us away

When I wait home chasing the fears
it is a long day walking
following you in my dreams
You've got it all

Evening creeps in, bringing you near,
what kind of thoughts will be stalking
before the dawn comes along
You've got it all

And when the morning begins
well then you go your own way
and still they move us away

And when the morning begins
well then you go your own way
and still they move us away
