Lyrics: 

Today, today is the 1st of May
Everything around us
Everything a lie
Your heart’s beating fast
As we race through the dark
Past the really good people
Who do what they’re told

What will be my name In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Who will I become In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there

Sophie and Lev are running away
These are the days
The days of gloom
Lev can’t smile and Sophie can’t sing
A mile to the future
Where tomorrow is king

What will be my name In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Who will I become In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there

I don’t need to know
Know where you are
Only that you are
Safe in this world
Then I’ll be content
To get on with my life
Eat, drink and sleep
Look up at the stars

What will be my name In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Who will I become In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there

What will be my name In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Who will I become In the USA?
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there

Lyrics: 

For the priceless man
Who suffers gloom
So slow
Eyes were stolen
For her
A sleeping sky
Takes the moon
So slow
I would slide away

Further out to sea
Further out to sea
So she

She saw me smile
Feeling like
I’d never been
She saw me smile
Feeling like I’d never been
In love
Feeling like I’d never been
The only one and all alone

The only one and all alone

Lyrics: 

Then we saw Mishima’s dog
Trapped between the rocks
Blocking the waterfall
The songs of dust
The world would end
The night was always falling
The peacock in the snow

And I tell myself
I don’t know who I am
And I tell myself
I don’t know who I am
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison

I can only love you
By hating him more
That’s not the truth
It’s too big a word
He believed
That love is theft
Love and whores
The theft of love

And I tell myself
I don’t know who I am
And I tell myself
I don’t know who I am
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison

But I am a seer
I am a liar
I am a seer
And I am a liar
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison

You Feel So Lonely You Could Die

Lyrics: 

No-one ever saw you
Moving through the dark
Leaving slips of paper
Somewhere in the park
Hidden from your friends
Stealing all they knew
Lovers thrown in airless rooms
Then vile rewards for you

And I’m gonna tell
Yes I’ve gotta tell
Gotta tell the things you’ve said
When you’re talking in the dark
And I’m gonna tell the things you’ve done
When you’re walking through the park

Some night on the thriller’s street
Will come the silent gun
You’ve got a dangerous heart
You stole their trust, their moon, their sun
There’ll come assassin’s needle
On a crowded train
I’ll bet you feel so lonely
You could die

Buildings crammed with people
Landscape filled with wrath
Grey concrete city
Rain has wet the street
I want to see you clearly
Before you close the door
A room of bloody history
You made sure of that

I can see you as a corpse
Hanging from a beam
I can read you like a book
I can feel you falling
I hear you moaning in your room
Oh see if i care
Oh please. Please make it soon

Walls have got you cornered
You’ve got the blues my friend
And people don’t like you
But you will leave without a sound, without an end
Oblivion shall own you
Death alone shall love you
I hope you feel so lonely
You could die
You could die
You feel so lonely
You could die
