Detail


 Debut 
Inside 04:46
Inside the doors are sealed to love,

Inside my heart is sleeping
Inside the fingers of my glove,
Inside the bones of my right hand
Inside it's colder than the stars,
Inside the dogs are weeping
Inside the circus of the winds
Inside the clocks are filled with sand
Inside she'll never hurt me,
Inside the winter's creeping
Inside the compass of the night,
Inside the folding of the land

Outside the stars are turning
Outside the world's still burning

Inside my head's a box of stars i never dared to open
Inside the wounded hide their scars, inside this lonesome sparrow's fall
Inside the songs of our defeat, they sing of treaties broken
Inside this army's in retreat, we hide beneath the thunder's call

Outside the rain keeps falling
Outside the drums are calling
Outside the flood won't wait
Outside they're hammering down the gate

Love is the child of an endless war
Love is an open wound still raw
Love is a shameless banner unfurled
Love's an explosion,
Love is the fire of the world
Love is a violent star
A tide of destruction
Love is an angry scar
A violation, a mutilation, capitulation, love is annihilation, annihilation.

Inside the failures of the light, the night is wrapped around me
Inside my eyes deny their sight, you'd never find me in this place
Inside we're hidden from the moonlight, we shift between the shadows
Inside the compass of the night, inside the memory of your face

Outside the walls are shaking
Inside the dogs are waking
Outside the hurricane won't wait
Inside they're howling down the gate

Love is the child of an endless war
Love is an open wound still raw
Love is a shameless banner unfurled
Love's an explosion,
Love is the fire at the end of the world
Love is a violent star
A tide of destruction
Love is an angry scar
The pain of instruction
Love is a violation, a mutilation, capitulation,
Love is annihilation.

I climb this tower inside my head
A spiral stair above my bed
I dream the stairs don't ask me why,
I throw myself into the sky

Love me like a baby, love me like an only child
Love me like an ocean; love me like a mother mild
Love me like a father, love me like a prodigal son
Love me like a sister, love me like the world has just begun
Love me like a prodigy, love me like an idiot boy,
Love me like an innocent, love me like your favorite toy
Love me like a virgin, love me like a courtesan,
Love me like a sinner, love me like a dying man.

Annihilate me, infiltrate me, incinerate me, accelerate me, mutilate me,
Inundate me, violate me, implicate me, vindicate me, devastate me

Love me like a parasite, love me like a dying sun
Love me like a criminal, love me like a man on the run

Radiate me, subjugate me, incubate me, recreate me, demarcate me, educate me,
Punctuate me, evaluate me, conjugate me, impregnate me, designate me,
Humiliate me, segregate me, opiate me, calibrate me, replicate me

 Debut 
Send your love 04:38
Finding the world in the smallness of a grain of sand

And holding infinities in the palm of your hand
And heaven's realms in the seedlings of this tiny flower
And eternities in the space of a single hour

Send your love into the future
Send your love into the distant dawn

Inside your mind is a relay station
A mission probe into the unknowing
We send a seed to a distant future
Then we can watch the galaxies growing

This ain't no time for doubting your power
This ain't no time for hiding your care
You're climbing down from an ivory tower
You've got a stake in the world we ought to share

You see the stars are moving so slowly
But still the earth is moving so fast
Can't you see the moon is so lonely
She's still trapped in the pain of the past

This is the time of worlds colliding
This is the time of kingdoms falling
This is the time of worlds dividing
The time to heed your call

Send your love into the future
Send your precious love into some distant time
Fix that wounded planet with the love of your healing
Send your love
Send your love to me

There's no religion but sex and music
There's no religion but sound and dancing
There's no religion but line and color
There's no religion but sacred trance

There's no religion but the endless ocean
There's no religion but the moon and stars
There's no religion but time and motion
There's no religion, just tribal scars

Throw a pebble in and watch the ocean
See the ripples vanish in the distance
It's just the same with all the emotions
It's just the same in every instance

No religion but the joys of rhythm
There's no religion but the rites of spring
There's no religion in the path of hate
And no prayer but the one i sing

Send your love into the future
Send your precious love into some distant time
Fix that wounded planet with the love of your healing
Send your love
Send your love

There's no religion but sex and music
There's no religion that's right or winning
There's no religion in the path of hatred
Ain't no prayer but the one i'm singing

Send your love
Send your love

Whenever i say your name 05:25
Whenever I say your name, whenever I call to mind your face

Whatever bread's in my mouth, whatever the sweetest wine that I taste
Whenever your memory feeds my soul, whatever got broken becomes whole
Whenever I知 filled with doubts that we will be together

Wherever I lay me down, wherever I put my head to sleep
Whenever I hurt and cry, whenever I got to lie awake and weep
Whenever I kneel to pray, whenever I need to find a way I知 calling out your name

Whenever those dark clouds hide the moon
Whenever those dark clouds hide the moon
Whenever this world has gotten so strange
I know that something's gonna change
Something's gonna change

Whenever I say your name, whenever I say your name, I知 already praying, I知 already praying
I知 already filled with a joy that I can't explain
Wherever I lay me down, wherever I rest my weary head to sleep
Whenever I hurt and cry, whenever I got to lie awake and weep
Whenever I知 on the floor
Whatever it was that I believed before
Whenever I say your name, whenever I say it loud, I知 already praying

Whenever this world has got me down, whenever I shed a tear
Whenever the TV makes me mad, whenever I知 paralyzed with fear
Whenever those dark clouds fill the sky, whenever I lose the reason why
Whenever I知 filled with doubt that we will be together

Whenever the sun refuses to shine, whenever the skies are pouring rain
Whatever I lost I thought was mine whenever I close my eyes in pain
Whenever I kneel to pray, whenever I need to find a way I知 calling out your name

Whenever this dark begins to fall
Whenever I知 vulnerable and small
Whenever I feel like I could die
Whenever I知 holding back the tears that I cry, cry

Whenever I say your name, whenever I call to mind your face I知 already praying
Whatever bread's in my mouth, whatever the sweetest wine that I taste
Wherever I lay me down, wherever I rest my weary head to sleep
Whenever I hurt and cry, whenever I知 forced to lie awake and have to weep
Whenever I知 on the floor
Whatever it was that I believed before
Whenever I say your name, whenever I say it loud, I知 already praying

Whenever I say your name,
No matter how long it takes,
One day we'll be together

Whenever I say your name,
Let there be no mistake
That day will last forever

Dead man's rope 05:43
A million footsteps, this left foot drags behind my right

But I keep walking, from daybreak 'til the falling night
And as days turn into weeks and years
And years turned into lifetimes
I just kept walking, like I致e been walking for a thousand years

Walk away in emptiness, walk away in sorrow,
Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,

If you're walking to escape, to escape from your affliction
You'd be walking in a great circle, a circle of addiction
Did you ever wonder what you'd been carrying since the world was black?
You see yourself in a looking glass with a tombstone on your back

Walk away in emptiness, walk away in sorrow,
Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,
Walk away in anger, walk away in pain
Walk away from life itself, walk into the rain

Now I知 suspended between my darkest fears and dearest hope
Yes I致e been walking, now I知 hanging from a dead man's rope
With hell below me, and heaven in the sky above
I致e been walking, I致e been walking away from Jesus' love

Walk away in emptiness, walk away in sorrow,
Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,
Walk away in anger, walk away in pain
Walk away from life itself, walk into the rain

All this wandering has led me to this place
Inside the well of my memory, sweet rain of forgiveness
I知 just hanging here in space

The shadows fall
Around my bed
When the hand of an angel,
The hand of an angel is reaching down above my bed

All this wandering have led me to this place
Inside the well of my memory, sweet rain of forgiveness
Now I知 walking in his grace
I知 walking in His footsteps
Walking in His footsteps,
Walking in His footsteps

All the days of my life I will walk with you
All the days of my life I will talk with you
All the days of my life I will share with you
All the days of my life I will bear with you

Walk away from emptiness, walk away from sorrow,
Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,
Walk away from anger, walk away from pain
Walk away from anguish, walk into the rain.

 Debut 
Never coming home 04:58
Well its 5 in the morning and the light's already broken

And the rainy streets are empty for nobody else has woken
Yet you turn towards the window as he sleeps beneath the covers
And you wonder what he's dreaming in his slumbers

There's a clock upon the table and it's burning up the hour
And you feel your life is shrinking like the petals of a flower
As you creep towards the closet you're so careful not to wake him
And you choose the cotton dress you bought last summer

There's a time of indecision between the bedroom and the door
But the part of you that knows that you can't take it any more
There's the promise of the future in the creaking of the floor
And your torn if you should leave him with a number

And in your imagination you're a thousand miles away
Because too many of his promises got broken on the way
So you write it in a letter all the things you couldn't say
And you tell him that you're never coming home

She starts running for the railway station praying that her calculation's right
And there's a train just waiting there to get her to the city before night
A place to sleep a place to stay will get her through another day
She'll take a job she'll find a friend she'll make a life that's better

And the passengers ignore her just a girl with an umbrella
There's nothing they can do for her there's nothing they can tell her
Nothing they could ever say would change the way she feels today
She'd live the life she'd always dreamed if he had only let her

Now in her imagination she's a million miles away
When too many of his promises got broken on the way
So she wrote it in a letter all the things she couldn't say
And she told him she was never coming home

I wake up in an empty bed a road drill hammers in my head
I call her name there's no reply it's not like her to let me lie
It's time for work it's time to go but something's different I don't know

I need a cup of coffee I'll feel better
I stumble to the bathroom door, her makeup bag is on the floor
It really is a mess this place it takes some time to shave my face
But I知 not really thinking straight she never lets me sleep this late

I知 almost done and then I see the letter
In his imagination she's a universe away
Too many of his promises got broken on the way
So she wrote it in a letter all things she couldn't say

And she told him she was never coming home,
She told him she was never coming home,
She told him she was never coming home

I知 gonna live my life
I知 gonna live my life in my own way

Stolen car 03:56
Late at night in summer heat.  Expensive car, empty street

There's a wire in my jacket. This is my trade
It only takes a moment, don't be afraid
I can hotwire an ignition like some kind of star
I知 just a poor boy in a rich man's car
So I whisper to the engine, flick on the lights
And we drive into the night

Oh the smell of the leather always excites my imagination
And I picture myself in this different situation
I知 a company director, two kids and a wife
I get the feeling that there's more to this one's life
There's some kind of complication, he tells her he's alone
Spends the night with his lover, there's a trace of her cologne
And the words of his mistress, as she whispers them so near
Start ringing in my ear

Please take me dancing tonight I致e been all on my own
You promised one day we could it's what you said on the phone
I知 just a prisoner of love always hid from the light
Take me dancing, please take me dancing tonight

I imagine his wife, she don't look nothing like a fool
She picks the kids up from some private school
She remembers what he told her, he was late and worked alone
But there's more than a suspicion in this lingering cologne
And the kids just won't be quiet and she runs a traffic light
And she drives into the night

Please take me dancing tonight I致e been all on my own
You promised one day we could it's what you said on the phone
I知 just a prisoner of love always hid from the light
Take me dancing, please take me dancing tonight

So here am I in a stolen car at a traffic light
They go from red to green and so I just drive into the night

Please take me dancing tonight I致e been all on my own
You promised one day we could it's what you said on the phone
I知 just a prisoner of love always hid from the light
Take me dancing, please take me dancing tonight

Forget about the future 05:12
I know we got some history

We got some issues that we need to solve
But is it really such a mystery?
It's just the way that the world evolves
Let me ask you for forgiveness baby
My heart is ever full of sorrow
We got to move into the future maybe
And think about a new tomorrow

She said you know I used to love you baby
But you're thinking way too fast
So forget about the future
And let's get on with the past.

So they called a 'nited Nations summit
To negotiate for peace on Earth
And it may idealistic baby
But I know what peace of mind is worth
Everybody aired their grievances
And they threw away the suture
They opened up all the wounds of the past
As they failed to find their way to the future

They said we'd better check the weather chart
Before we tie our colors to this mast
And it's too hard thinking about the future baby
So let's just get on with the past

She said we'd better check the horoscope honey
Just in case this feeling wasn't meant to last
It's just too hard thinking about the future
So let's just get on with the past

How many times you ever hear me say
I知 as flawed as any other human being?
But there simply has to be a different way
A whole new way of seeing
Are we doomed by all our history
Is our love really beyond repair?
But it's getting close to midnight baby
And we ain't got time to spare

Just when I think I知 home and dry
And she's given up the fight
There's an unmistakable optimism
In romantic music and candlelight
But there's this lingering perfume
The merest ghost of the past
She says now wait a minute baby
We're moving way too fast
We'd better check the weather chart
Before we raise this mast
We'd best consult our horoscope
In case this feeling wasn't meant to last
Let's just forget about the future
And get on with the past

This war 05:29
You've got the mouth of a she wolf

Inside the mask of an innocent lamb
You say your heart is all compassion
But there's just a flat line on your cardiogram

Yet you always made a profit baby
If it was a famine or a feast

Yes, I知 the soul of indiscretion,
I was cursed with x-ray vision,
I could see right through all the lies you told,
When you smiled for the television

And you can see the coming battle
And you pray the drums will never cease
And you may win this war that's coming
But would you tolerate the peace?

Investing in munitions
And those little cotton flags
Invest in wooden caskets
In guns and body bags, guns and body bags

Your daddy was a businessman
It always made good sense
You know the war can make you rich my friend
In dollars, pounds and cents

In the temple that was Mammon's
You were ordained the parish priest
Yes you may win this coming battle
But could you tolerate the peace?

Invest in deadly weapons
And those little cotton flags
Invest in wooden caskets
In guns and body bags
You're investing in oppression
Investing in corruption
Invest in every tyranny
And the whole world's destruction

I imagine there's a future
When all the earthly wars are over
You may find yourself just standing there
On the white cliffs of Dover

You may ask, what does it profit a man
To gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?
Is that your body you see on the rocks below
As the tide begins to roll?

And you invested in this prison
From which you never got released
And you may have won this war we're fighting
But would you tolerate the peace?

There's a war on our democracy
A war on our dissent
There's a war inside religion
And what Jesus might have meant

There's a war on Mother Nature
There's a war upon the seas
There's a war upon the forests
On the birds and the bees

There's a war on education
There's a war on information
There's a war between the sexes
And every nation

There's a war on our compassion
There's a war on understanding
There's a war on love and life itself
And it's war that they're demanding

Make it easy on yourself
And don't do nothing

The book of my life 06:15
Let me watch by the fire and remember my days

And it may be a trick of the firelight
But the flickering pages that trouble my sight
Is a book I知 afraid to write

It's the book of my days, it's the book of my life
And it's cut like a fruit on the blade of a knife
And it's all there to see as the section reveals
There's some sorrow in every life

If it reads like a puzzle, a wandering maze
Then I won't understand 'til the end of my days
I知 still forced to remember,
Remember the words of my life

There are promises broken and promises kept
Angry words that were spoken, when I should have wept
There's a chapter of secrets, and words to confess
If I lose everything that I possess
There's a chapter on loss and a ghost who won't die
There's a chapter on love where the ink's never dry
There are sentences served in a prison I built out of lies.

Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no one can read
In the book of my life

There's a chapter on fathers a chapter on sons
There are pages of conflicts that nobody won
And the battles you lost and your bitter defeat,
There's a page where we fail to meet

There are tales of good fortune that couldn't be planned
There's a chapter on god that I don't understand
There's a promise of heaven and hell but I知 damned if I see

Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no one can read
In the book of my life

Now the daylight's returning
And if one sentence is true
And all these pages are burning
And all that's left is you

Though the pages are numbered
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no one can read
In the book of my life

Sacred love 05:43
Put on these high heeled shoes

Don't want no preacher on the TV baby
Don't want to hear the news

Shut out the world behind us
Put on your long black dress
No one's ever gonna find us here
Just leave you're hair in a mess
I been searching long enough
I begged the moon and the stars above for
Sacred love

I been up, I been down
I been lonesome, in this Godless town
You're my religion, you're my church
You're the holy grail at the end of my search
Have I been down on my knees for long enough?
I been searching the planet to find
Sacred love

The spirit moves on the water
She takes the shape of this heavenly daughter
She's rising up like a river in flood
The word got made into flesh and blood
The sky grew dark, and the earth she shook
Just like a prophecy in the Holy Book

Thou shalt not covet, thou shalt not steal
Thou shalt not doubt that this love is real
I got down on my knees and I prayed to the skies
When I looked up could I trust my eyes?
All the saints and angels and the stars up above
They all bowed down to the flower of creation

Every man every woman
Every race every nation
It all comes down to this
Sacred love

Don't need no doctor, I don't need no pills
I got a cure for the country's ills
Here she comes like a river in flood
The word got made into flesh and blood
Thou shalt not steal thou shalt not kill
But if you don't love her your best friend will

All the saints up in heaven and the stars up above
It all comes down, it all comes down
It all comes down to love,
Sacred love

I致e been thinking 'bout religion
I致e been thinking 'bout the things we believe
I致e been thinking 'bout the Bible
I致e been thinking 'bout Adam and Eve
I致e been thinking 'bout the garden
I致e been thinking 'bout the tree of knowledge, the tree of life
I致e been thinking 'bout forbidden fruit
I致e been thinking 'bout a man and his wife

I been thinking 'bout, thinking 'bout
Sacred love, sacred love
