Every day I’ll try to forget What you said and all you did But not today Today’s not going away Today you comfort me Comfort me It’s been a long time To give up now and pack on home But it’s gonna be ok Cause we’re better than this, I’m better than this, I’m better ‘Last night I saw upon the stair A little man who wasn’t there He wasn’t there again today Oh how I wish he’d go away’ All your shaking followers say How important you were How integral you are Not one relaxed or comfortable The principle saboteur The scented lure I don’t trust a man Who’d sell your soul for a cheap fistful of dollars Don’t you comfort me It’s been a long time To give up now and pack on home But it’s gonna be ok Cause we’re better than this, we're better than this, we're better than this, I’m better than this, I'm better But still we fight The crowd of blind and ignorant With your ancient face hung on the wall In our way You’re standing in my headlights You’re standing And I’m better than this I’m better than this, I’m better

I work so hard, thinking big, talking loud Just for it to break me down I wake up every day with the word on my breath There’s always someone pushing it out I know it’s you The kids who swam drowned a thousand miles He dressed in razor wires and shame You’re standing in a wall against their rights Since you cast a ballot in his name They’re trying to bury me and my country We took away children We throw away children Some lucky country Watches As glass walls turn into mirrors There’s no hope for freedom When hate turns men into killers We all watch As glass walls turn into mirrors There’s no hope for freedom When you point your finger at me Cause I'm not your enemy A faded man that I met on the street Says he’s searching for his people Born in a cage, made of skin and talk He's left a broken man, a stolen man We tried to bury him and his country We took away children Without a sound we bury them Some lucky country Watches As glass walls turn into mirrors There’s no hope for freedom When hate turns men into killers We all watch As glass walls turn into mirrors There’s no hope for freedom When you point your finger at me Cause I’m not your enemy I'd hope I’ve hoped for a long time You'd choke on it like me They’re trying to bury me and my country Who took away children Who throw away children You’re trying to bury me and my country You take away children You fuck away children You’re trying to bury me and my country You take away children You throw away children You’re trying to bury me and my country You take away children You fuck away children Hell, I’m not you’re enemy I'm not your enemy * I'm not your enemy *You are my enemy You are my enemy Some lucky country

Everybody's waiting for some moment to signal an end Some moment of closure, some moment to rest Waiting for some fool to clean up the spill A door to salvation, waiting for the kill What's left, you and me Left unspoken, I'm ready for the thrill To take up, and leave standing still I want to be free One night a man came, leaving dust and a broken mill Two words he spoke to me, a vision for mouths to fill He had no occupation, no purse nor bag nor pill Three men more than a rat in the doorway, leading us Leading us out to war What's left, you and me Right not worth asking about, I'm ready for the kill So I'll take up, and leave standing still I want to be free See they're asking See they're waiting No more waiting No more waiting Stand. Stand. What's left, you and me None of us spoken for, but ready for the thrill To take up, and leave standing still You are all free

I’m feeling lost and my friend says it’s only eleven Waiting for something Cuts deepen and mirrors talk as things get worse And we wait till we’re sober to think straight and apologise And I just don’t understand How love can fade like that Hold my fate In my place In my place Hold that face In my place In my place We sit and we think on the usual excuses We sit and we drink and we wonder what all the fuss is about Well I’m not gonna live like that When people know they can change everything I just don’t understand How love can fade like that Hold my fate In my place In my place Hold that face In my place In my place Let me speak I just don’t understand I just don’t understand How love can fade How love can change How love can fade like that Just like that Just like that Hold my fate In my place In my place Hold that face In my place In my place No.

I want to be weightless To clear this ground and see this Without my head down I swim I float, breathing patience Wading, ascending So high I just see where I am Some thoughts to swim today It's not much simpler upside down But it's good to see you I think it's good to see you I guess it's good to see you My friend I want to be shameless So then I could feel this With my eyes closed But it’s good to see you I think it’s good to see you I guess it’s good to see you It’s good to see you My friend   You're so close So close to me Cause you’re here And I’m here And you’re close You're close to me Close to me

Sun Give a little light a little love Give back Sun Give a little light a little love Give back It's not It's not worth it Is it? Failing apathy I will walk Walking new again And no, I'm not there I'm not there, yet A word falls To choke which war depends on it An arrow falls Too close, too close to give it back It's not worth it Define 'worth it' To find worth in Define worth in this Fighting apathy I will walk Walking new again And- no, stop right there Stop right there Hold right there Where I say it's fair No, we're not there, yet Give it back Give it back It's not enough Failing apathy I will walk Walking new again And no, we're not there We're not there yet

As pools in love twirl in circles across the floor A restless mind dreams of different places Always thinking Always feeling In this echo As thoughts have echoed throughout many lives Hearts have lived throughout hearts But we stand on our own ground No one can tell you who are except you Echoed As cuts in love fall in circles across the wall A restless heart dreams of different faces Change Light It grips you all around And dances full of smiles and pain Love It blooms and falls in petals on our darkest soils And we’re afloat in its wake Fall A gentle brush of wind as I reach up the kiss the ground And I’m slowly falling asleep   And we all And we all And we all Float on

Some define us by where we stand But who I am and where I am just don’t seem to match right now And it bothers some people That who we are and what we do can never be proved   And all I’ve seen is time And all I'll breathe is mine Mine, oh mine   And some define us by what will stay But all the melodies will fade away Like your patched-up remedies and plastic knives and your 'little lies' I’m lost in circles every time I fly   And all I’ve seen is time And all I'll breathe is mine And all I’ve seen is time And all I dream is mine   Mine, oh mine   It’s alright It’s mine It's alright

A smooth plane hides a yellow sky A golden orb, rising as it falls Trickling water, a quiet heart A soft breeze cools a tired mind A twilight star across a midnight sky The flowers that comfort our weary eyes Heal our battlefield To live without flame, live without wain All our colours change Orange to blue and blue to black All our lives in rain Live without flame, live without wain All our colours change Rain will wake all hearts and minds As we rise from the ashes Rise from the ashes Rise from the ashes
