Born of Frustration

All this frustration
I can't meet all my desires
Strange conversation
Self-control has just expired
All an illusion
Only in my head you don't exist
Who are you fooling
Don't need a shrink but an exorcist

Show me the movie
Of who you are and where you're from
Born of frustration
Caught up in the webs you've spun
Where's the confusion
A vision of what life is like
Show me the movie
That doesn't deal in black and white

Stop stop talking about who's to blame
When all that counts is how to change

All this frustration
All this frustration
Who put round eyes on a butterfly's wings
All this frustration
All this frustration
Who gave the leopards spots and taught the birds to sing

Born of frustration
Born of frustration

I'm living in the weirdest dream
Where nothing is the way it seems
Where no one's who they need to be
Where nothing seems that real to me
What can we build our lives upon
No wall of stone, no solid ground
The world is spinning endlessly
We're clinging to our own beliefs

Born of frustration
Born of frustration

Ring the Bells


Ring The Bells

Ring ring the bells
Wake the town
Everyone is sleeping
Shout at the crowd
Wake them up
This anger's deeper than sleep

Got to keep awake to what is happening
I can't see a thing through my ambition,
I no longer feel my God is watching over me
Got to tell the world we've all been dreaming
This is not the end, a new beginning
I no longer feel my God is watching over me

Break break the code
Concentrate
Let the doors swing open
See through all your walls
All your floors
Now you're in deeper than sleep

Got to keep awake to what is happening
I can't see a thing through my ambition,
I no longer feel my God is watching over me
Got to tell the world we've all been dreaming
This is not the end, a new beginning
I no longer feel my God is watching over me

When you let me fall
Grew my own wings
Now I'm as tall as the sky
When you let me drown
Grew gills and fins
Now I'm as deep as the sea
When you let me die
My spirit's free
There's nothing challenging me

Sound

Ape your father's sins, your mother's mood swings
To perfection
Fall into a spin, shed another skin
Strip away all your protection

Laugh at the wonder of it all
Laugh so loud you break the fall
And you see the gathering clouds
Cry at the sadness of the world
Cry so long you break its cold
And you hear the gathering sounds

Do everything you fear
In this there's power
Fear is not to be afraid of

Laugh at the wonder of it all
Laugh so loud you break your fall
And you hear the gathering sounds

Come, dip on in
Leave your bones, leave your skin
Leave your past, leave your craft
Leave your suffering heart

Bring a Gun

There's a fight, there's a fight, there's a fight
And the rage is growing
You have pushed me through too many windows and too many doors
You have torn all the joy from my heart and the blood is showing
The only beat you allow around here is the beat of war
Let's have a party

Bring a gun
Bring a gun

Don't go out tonight with that smile or you might get arrested
Get a license for that grin or they'll lock you away
If you show that you're happy inside then you're gonna get busted
The only law we allow around here is an organized raid
Let's have a party

Bring a gun
Bring a gun

What are you going to do if the muscle won't move
They are blocking the light, blocking the light
How many words will you waste on a Terre-Blanche
Let's have a party

You can bring your gun
And you can bring your dogs
And you can bring your shiny new helicopter

Bring a gun
Bring a gun
Let's have a party
Bring your gun

Mother

This war's a motherfucker
How many sons will we kill today
On fours little brother
Tell me what the view's like from the ground

Your love is a killer
Killing all this love in me
We are so full of terror
Vicious kiss your love is longing dee

PLove, love, love will strike you down
Love, love

Where the anger is hot
Where opinion is deep
Understanding is shot is dead is dead is dead
Where the linen is cheap
Where the weapons are not
All the mothers will weep is dead is dead is dead

Will strike you down
Love, love, love will strike you down

We're drawn to a torture
I can't take it anymore
On fours little mother
Tell me what the view's like from the ground

Love, love, love will strike you down
Love, love, love will strike us down

Don't Wait That Long

Operator, the lines are down, are down
And I'm a traitor, traitor to a beautiful cause
God made me to her own design
Bad planning, too many flaws

How long will it take to get used to me
How long will it take to get used to me

Don't wait that long
Won't wait that long
Don't wait that long
Don't wait that long

Oh yes I love you
But today I could hit you, I could hurt you
Because we're joined at the heart
Beats faster, hits harder than a boxer
When we are apart
Body language is an SOS
I don't understand how our fight starts
Not enough to believe in love
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know where we've gone wrong

How long will it take to get used to me
How long will it take to get used to me

Don't wait that long
Won't wait that long
No we won't wait that long
Don't wait that long

Operator, the lines are down
And I'm a traitor, traitor to a beautiful cause
God made me to her own design
Bad planning, too many flaws
I've got too many flaws
Too many flaws

Don't wait that long
Won't wait that long
No we won't wait that long
Don't wait that long

Live a Love of Life

I don't believe Jesus was a human being
I've never met a prophet whose sheets are clean
Only in a film could he be so cool
But only in life can fathers be so cruel

What in the world are you dreaming of
To sacrifice the son you love
You send your children off to war
As if you care, as if you care

To live the love of life, to live your love of life
To live your love of life, your love of life
Your love of life

Prophets have been sacrificed for common good
What we want slugs it out with what we should
All of these commercials are just teasing greed
Everybody's restless with a deeper need

Open your eyes, and what do you see
A system made to crush our needs
A saviour nailed to every tree
As if you care, as if you care
The prophet said, the prophet said

To live the love of life, to live your love of life
To live your love of life, your love of life
Your love of life, your love of life
Where's your love of life

The prophet said, the prophet said
The profit's here, the profit's here
Where's you're love of life, tell me your love of life
Tell me your love of life

To sacrifice the son you love
You send your children off to war
As if you care, as if you care

Next Lover

Who are you dreaming of now
Is she flesh real
Or carved in memory

Who are you dreaming of now
Is she flesh real
Or bloodless fantasy
From a film heroine

There goes innocence fading away
Here comes bitterness after you pay
For believing in stories man-made

Yes, we all want to be your next lover
But we scared so we're running you down
Yes, we all want to be your next lover
But your beauty's too far above ground
From a film heroine

We will laugh at the worst of your jokes
Steal a kiss if we can, buy you flowers and gifts
Every move is a plan, you can measure this man
By the depths of his lies, you can measure this man

Yes we all want to be your next lover
Yes we all want to be your next lover

We are driven by things you can't feel
Are we stealing or are we the steal
So we lie like a priest
To slide under and into inside
Love is cruel but love seldom kind

Yes we all want to be your next lover
Yes we all want to be your next lover

I can lie like the best of them
Wait with the patience of man
Seem so understanding
While I'm making my plans
I'm so full of desire, I've forgotten your name
I'm so full of desire, I could burst into flames
I'm so full of desire I can't hope to control
This desire that's closer to pain
River runs where all rivers go
This desire will not be contained

Yes we all want to be your next lover
Yes we all want to be your next lover
Lover
Lover
I love her

Who are you dreaming of now
Is she flesh real
Or carved in memory

Heavens

I've been sitting on top of these rocks
Watching the waters rise
Everyone that I have loved has gone floating by
I've been praying for the king of the world to come rescue me
From a land that's lost in dreams
From a land that's lost in dreams

Are you waiting for the heavens
Are you waiting for the heavens to descend
Waiting for the depend, the depend, the depend
Are you waiting for the heavens
Are you waiting for the heavens to descend
Waiting for the depend, the depend, the depend

I've been looking through microscopes to see how our life begins
I've been training my lens on the stars to see where it ends
But it's this living in between that's bringing me down
To a land that's lost in dreams
To a land that's lost in dreams
To a land that's lost in dreams

Are you waiting for the heavens
Are you waiting for the heavens to descend
Waiting for the depend, the depend, the depend
Are you waiting for the heavens
Are you waiting for the heavens to descend
Waiting for the depend, the depend, the depend

Protect Me

Oh dear what can the matter be
Princess, dreaming again
Fearful, live life more easily
Darkness, leave her in peace

Always wanting help
Will make you weak
No such place has help
But in your dreams
Climb out of your well

Protect me
Protect me

Angel, what is possessing me
Feeling, making me weak
Falling under your spell again
Wanting, love's out of reach

Climb out of your well
It's not so deep
The price of living life
Is not so steep
No such place has hel

PProtect me
Protect me

Here they come again, here they come again, here they come again

Always wanting help
Will make you weak
The price of loving life
Does not come cheap
Climb out of your well

Protect me
Protect me

Seven

Blow me away
Was that love you declared
Only a word
Love can mean anything
Understand the world we're living in

Oceans apart
What's that view from your wave
Beautiful craft
Weather and change
Understand the world we're living in
Love can mean anything

God made love to me
Soothed away my gravity
Made me a pair of angel's wings
Clear vision and some magic things

God is love to me
Thank you for those things
Understand the world we're living in
Love can mean anything

Darling
I'm open
Unguarded
Unbroken

Now we've done our time
We can drift away
Like the heavy cloud
With the weight of rain

Understand the world we're living in
Love can mean anything

Understand the world we're living in
Love can change anything
