SHUT UP

TOO MANY TO CONVINCE
TOO MANY TO HIRE
AND NOTHING YOU EVER OWN
THE WORLD’S A DEAD SORRY HOLE
AND I’M COLD, AND I’M COLD
AND IM COLD, AND I’M STUBBORN
I’M SICK TO KEEP IT OPEN WIDE
AND SPEAKING WORDS TO THE BLIND

SPEAKING WORDS, TO THE BLIND
SPEAKING WORDS, TO THE BLIND

AND THE SOUL OF THE PURE
AND THE EYES OF THE LOVER
AND THE ONE WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL
AND THE ONE WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL

I’M THE ONE, WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL
I’M THE ONE, WHO TRULY SAW YOUR SOUL

AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
DID YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
OH IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
I’LL SHUT IT NOW

YOUNG, JUST BORN
FRAGILE AND TREMBLING SOUL
YOU HOLD IT TO THE LIGHT
THAT POURS DOWN THE MOON AT NIGHT
YOU KEPT ON HOLDING IT
YOU KEPT ON HOLDING IT
IT WAS A DANGEROUS THING TO DO
BUT YOU DID IT WHEN NO ONE KNEW
WHEN THE EYES WERE CLOSED
AND THE PEOPLE ASLEEP

NOT AN ANIMAL
NOT A HUMAN
NOT A SOUL
NOT A SOUL

AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
AND IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
DID YOU TELL ME TO SHUT UP
OH IF YOU TELL ME TO SHUT IT
I SHUT IT NOW

STRIFE

THEY WONDER HOW WE DO IT
THEY ASK ME IF I CARE
THEY WONDER HOW COME THE YEARS
HAVEN’T SOUGHT MORE LOVER’S TEAR

THEY QUESTION THAT IT’S TRUE
A LOVE WHICH NEVER WILTS
AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
WHERE FURIES SMITE YOUNG SLITS

AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
DOWN IN THE STRIFE
AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
WHERE DEATH OUTNUMBERS LIFE

AND THEY HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT WE DO AT NIGHT
AND HOW FOR YOU AND I
THE HOUR NEVER STRIKES

THEY WONDER HOW WE DO IT
THEY WONDER HOW COME
HOW COME I’VE BEEN DOING THINGS WITH YOU
I WOULD NEVER TELL MY MUM

AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
DOWN IN THE STRIFE
AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
WHERE DEATH OUTNUMBERS LIFE


WAITING FOR A SIGN

YOU DON’T LIKE THEIR MANNERS
YOU DON’T LIKE THEIR FACE
YOU TURN YOURSELF AWAY
FROM THE MAN WHO MADLY DRINKS
NOW YOU FIND YOUR NIGHTS DEEPER
WITHOUT ANYONE ELSE
WITHOUT ANYONE ELSE AROUND

WAITING FOR A SIGN
WAITING FOR A SIGN
WAITING FOR A SIGN
I’M WAITING FOR A SIGN
I’M WAITING FOR A SIGN
I’M WAITING

YOU INTRODUCED ME TO
DIFFERENT KIND OF LOVERS
YOU TOLD ME TO WALK THROUGH
DIFFERENT KIND OF TUNNELS
I GUESS LOVE BY NATURE
SUITED TO YOUR FACE
SOMETHING HARD TO GET
BUT EASY TO EMBRACE

WAITING FOR A SIGN
WAITING FOR A SIGN
WAITING FOR A SIGN
I’M WAITING FOR A SIGN
I’M WAITING FOR A SIGN
I’M WAITING


SHE WILL

SHE WILL ENTER THE ROOM
SHE WILL ENTER THE BED
SHE WILL TALK LIKE A FRIEND
SHE WILL KISS LIKE A MAN

SHE WILL FORGET HER NAME
SHE WILL COME BACK AGAIN
GET HOOKED ON LOVING HARD
FORCING THE SLUT OUT

YOU GOT TO GET USED TO IT
GIVE YOUR HEART A LITTLE KICK
COZ SHE WILL, SHE WILL, SHE WILL…

SHE WILL OPEN HER HEART
SHE WILL OPEN HER LIPS
SHE WILL CHOOSE TO IGNITE
AND NEVER TO EXTINGUISH

SHE WILL FORGET HER PAIN
SHE WILL COME BACK AGAIN
GET HOOKED ON LOVING HARD
FORCING THE SLUT OUT

YOU GOT TO GET USED TO IT
GIVE YOUR HEART A LITTLE KICK
COZ SHE WILL, SHE WILL, SHE WILL…

COZ YOU HAVE NO FACE, YOU HAVE NO FACE
YOU, HAVE, NO FACE
YOU HAVE NO FACE, YOU HAVE NO FACE
YOU, HAVE, NO FACE
