winning
what holds your hope together
make sure it's strong enough
when you reach the end of your tether
it's because it wasn't strong enough
i was going to drown
then i started swimming
i was going down
then i started winning
winning - winning
when you're on the bottom
you crawl back to the top
something pulls you up
and a voice says you can't stop
it won't let you stop
i was going to drown
then i started swimming
i was going down
but now I've started winning
winning - winning

sense of purpose
look in my eyes
see the lust and the love
look in my eyes
when i'm talking to you
I'll take my life
into my own hands
i'm the one that i will blame
i'm the one that understands
what are we going to do?
while we've still got the strength to move
what are we going to do?
i'm asking, i'm asking you
a call to arms, a call to use arms
a call to brains, a call to use some brains
a call to the heart, a call to have a heart
to have a sense of purpose again
are we where we want to be
all wrapped up in our safety?
comfort and complacency
it hurts me, it hurts me so
what are we going to do?
while we've still got the strength to move
what are we going to do?
i'm asking, i'm asking you

contact the fact
you mean the world
the real world to me
so watching you go
is like watching a film in slow motion
everything i touch
turns to dust
and everyone i turn to
turns on me
strange the way
we accept our lot - living together
strange the way
we self-destruct - dying together
all the beauty gets taken for granted
all the pain gets put in the way
put in our way
contact's the fact - i need it
contact you - because i need you
take me out
you take me out of myself
you can take what you want from me
because i know you
hate it when i'm crazy
it's a side of love
you never wanted to see
contact's the fact - i need it
contact you because i need you

skeletons
there's a gaping hole in the way we are
with nothing to fill it up anymore
no flesh no blood just broken bone
a frame to hang our lives from
we're living like skeletons
won't someone wake the dead in me
won't someone shake the dust off me
give me water give me bread
but don't give me up for dead
we're living like skeletons

judgement
i can tell it's now or never
if we don't act now it could be now and forever
the moment is near, the moment of truth
but just what's scared the life out of you?
you're so still, silent motionless
i can't watch and wait just to pay the price
of your judgement
i will push at the powers that be
i will pull you close to me
and if i fall i go gracefully
no regrets, don't pour your pity on me
you're so still, are you so lame?
i can't watch and wait just to take the blame
for your judgement
can there really be someone up above me
who judges me when my time is up
i can't believe, i can't believe
that i'm not the one that i should trust
he's so still, silent, motionless
i can't watch and wait just to pay the price
he's so still, he's silent, motionless
i can't watch and wait just to pay the price
of his judgement

fatal flaw
a fatal attraction
been growing away from the light
and i can't come back now
until i drag myself out of this vice
sense of distance when you stand next to me
I've made a strange disappearance
one that no-one can see
you can't reach me anymore
turn to face the fatal flaw
we all have weakness
moments that we can't contain
right now I'm all weakness
ill make another retreat again
sense of distance when you stand close to me
I've a strange disappearance
one that no one can see
you can't reach me anymore
turn to face the fatal flaw
a fatal attraction - fatal flaw
been growing away from the light - fatal flaw

possession
there's a devil in me
trying to show his face
there's a god in me
wants to put me in my place
i've got to get a hold of myself
i've got to be in possession
there's a war being waged
that'll never be won
it's the struggle for possession
i've got to get a hold of myself
i've got to be in possession
and i've got to ask you
what do you want from me?
you know, the deeper your cut
the less there's left of me
i've got to get a hold of myself
i've got to get a hold of myself
i've got to be in possession

the fire
fell into the fire
fell into the fire
i was led by the heart
led by the heart
drawn towards the heat
drawn towards the heat
too fierce to contain
too fierce to contain
i'm a willing victim of circumstance
i'm a willing victim of circumstance
i can't change a thing
i can't take the chance
i can't change a thing
i can't take the chance

silent air
thunder in the air
before a storm that rips
anger in my heart
a finger on my lips
you showed me that silence
that haunts this troubled world
you showed me that silence
can speak louder than words
words end in disaster
on the rocks, in pieces
i know something lives on there
but i can't say what it is
you showed me that silence
that haunts this troubled world
you showed me that silence
can speak louder than words

new dark age
in the darkest times
darkest fears are heard
and from the safest places
come the bravest words
some make a quiet life
to keep this scared old world at bay
the dogs are howling on the street outside
so they close the curtains, hope they go away
and it's pressure from all sides
coming down around our ears
stuck in this room without a door
scratched away at the walls for years
all we've got to show is the dust on the floor
and here it comes, here it comes, a new dark age
i catch your eyes
before they fall to the ground
we're running out of time, breath and steam
we're running down
they're burning witches
up on punishment hill
dying proof in the power of authority
to exact its will
and we've broken our fingers
broken our faith,
broken our hearts so many times they can't
be broken anymore
scratched away at the walls for years
all we've got to show is the dust on the floor
and here it comes, here it comes, a neiv dark age
here it comes ...
