Left of the Middle

Torn

I thought I saw a man brought to life,
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified,
He showed me what it was to cry,
Well, you couldn't be that man I adored.
You don't seem to know, seem to care, what your heart is for,
Well I don't know him anymore,
There's nothing where he used to lie,
My conversation has run dry,
That's what's goin' on.
Nothing's fine I'm torn
I'm all out of faith,
This is how I feel,
I'm cold and I am shamed,
Lying naked on the floor,
Illusion never changed,
Into something real,
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn,
You're a little late, I'm already torn

So I guess the fortune teller's right,
I should have seen just what was there and not some holy light,
But you crawelled beneath my veins and now,
I don't care, I have no luck, I don't miss it all that much,
There's just so many things,
That I can't touch I'm torn.
I'm all out of faith,
This is how I feel,
I'm cold and I am shamed,
Lying naked on the floor,
Illusion never changed,
Into something real,
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn,
You're a little late, I'm already torn,
Torn

There's nothing where he used to lie,
My inspiration has run dry,
And that's what's goin' on
Nothing's right I'm torn
I'm all out of faith,
This is how I feel,
I'm cold and I am shamed,
Lying naked on the floor,
Illusion never changed,
Into something real,
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
I'm all out of faith,
This is how I feel,
I'm cold and I'm ashamed,
Bound and broken on the floor,
You're a little late, I'm already torn,
Torn

Pigeons and Crumbs

Gotta get back,
Gotta figure out a way,
I'm losing my senses to you,
Where'd it go,
The bluebird I should follow, back home?
But where is home?
Guess it won't amount to much,
Won't be long before I crush,
I'll stand in line

Don't believe a thing they say today,
Seems we all get lost amongst the pigeons and the crumbs,
All alone,
But I'm in a crowded room,
I'm sinking, in quicksand tonight,
You pick me up, and I shine across the sky till morning,
Then you colour me in,
Guess it won't amount ot much,
Seems to me I've lost my touch,
I'm back in line,
Don't believe a thing they say today,
Turn around and walk away,
Everything will go your way, I pray,
Seems we all get lost amongst the pigeons and the crumbs

Gotta get it inside
Gotta get it outside
Oh ho, oh ho

Don't believe a thing they say today,
Turn around and walk away,
Everything will go your way, I pray,
Seems we all get lost amongst the pigeons and the crumbs
Don't believe a thing they say today,
Turn around and walk away,
Everything will go your way, I pray,
Seems we all get lost amongst the pigeons and the crumbs

One More Addiction

First the good news,
It's gonna feel very nice,
Then the bad news,
You gotta pay a heavy price,
Rip tide, we slide we ride on a deep forbidden sea,
Under we go, so slow,
And you're hanging onto me,

And I say, oh oh one more addiction in my world,
Oh one more connection to let go,
Oh floating down the river,
Out of sight forever from my world
It's the only thing I know how to do,

I reject you, but I can't follow through,
I'd forget you, but you end up tappin on my back door,
Somehow I lost myself,
In a tunnel long and black,
Somewhere, at the end, I pretend,
There's a way of turning back

And I say, oh oh one more addiction in my world,
Oh one more connection to let go,
Oh floating down the river,
Out of sight forever from my world
It's the only thing I know how to do,

Take a breath, let it out,
All the things you frown about are meaningless of course,
Unless youre doing this for real I guess,
I meant to but, I dont know what,
Is in the way and could I say,
It's you I bet, I won't forget,
Maybe I'm not ready yet.

And I say, oh oh one more addiction in my world,
Oh one more connection to let go,
Oh floating down the river,
Out of sight forever from my world

Oh one more addiction in my world,
Oh one more connection to let go,
Oh floating down the river,
Out of sight forever from my world
It's the only thing I know how to do,
It's the only thing I know how to do
It's the only thing I know how to do
It's the only thing, only thing that I
It's the only thing, the only thing that I
It's the only thing that I know how to do
It's the only thing, the only thing that I know how to do
Cause I'll forget you

Don't You Think?

Ignore reality there's nothing you can do about it

Some people, don't worry, bout nothing,
Don't know what's going on,
I'm not one,
Who can't say they're sorry,
I just care what's going on,
There's more important things,
Than making sure your watch looks just right,
And second hand opinions,
Don't make you look any smarter,
Don't you think, don't you think, don't you think that maybe it's time,
Yes, its time,
Time you started thinking,
Time you started thinking,
Time you started thinking
Time you started thinking
And don't just sweeten up the taste,
Brother shoots brother,
But meanwhile your fixing up your face,
You're not affected by the truth,
Unless it's on your own doorstep,
Deoderize your paradise,
No point in getting crazy,
Don't you think, don't you think, don't you think that maybe,
It's time, yes it's time,
Time you started thinking 'bout things in the back of your head,
Someone said before you turn a blind eye,
Hear a bell ring sex sells everything,
But I don't buy it so don't try it,
Sleeping in the small world, head in the sand,
Better wash your hands, make a new plan,
There's more important things than making sure your shoes walk just right,
Ignore reality there's nothing you can do about it,
Ignore reality there's nothing you can do about it,
Ignore reality there's nothing you can do about it,
The clothes you wear don't make the man,
It's just another party,
Don't you think, don't you think, don't you think that maybe,
It's time
Don't you think, don't you think, don't you think that maybe,
It's time, time you started thinking
There's more important things,
Than making sure your watch looks just right,
And second hand opinions,
Don't make you look any smarter,
You're not affected by the truth,
Unless it's on your own doorstep,
Deoderize your paradise,
No point in getting crazy,
Yes it's time
Time you started thinking
Time you started thinking
Time you started thinking
Time you started thinking

Big Mistake

There's no sign on the gate,
And there's mud on your face,
Don't you think it's time we re-invistigate this situation,
Put some fruit on your plate,
You forgotten how it started,
Close your eyes,
Think of all the bubbles of love we made,
And you're down on your knees,
It's too late,
Oh don't come crawling,
And you lie by my feet,
What a big mistake,
I see you fallin',

Got a buzz in my head,
And my flowers are dead,
Can't figure out a way to rectify this situation,
Don't believe what you said,
You forgotten how it all started,
Close your eyes, think of all the bubbles of love we made,
And your down on your knee,
It's too late oh don't come crawling,
And you'd lie by my feet,
What a big mistake, I see you falling,

I could sting like a bee, careful how you treat me,
Baby I don't think I'll accept your sorry invitation,
Close the door as you leave,

You forgotten how it all started,
Close your eyes, think of all the bubbles of love we made,
And your down on your knee,
It's too late oh don't come crawling,
And you'd lie by my feet,
What a big mistake, I see you falling,
And you cry over me, I can't wait,
I feel you stalling, And you try to reach me,
What a big mistake, I hear you calling
And your down on your knee,
It's too late oh don't come crawling,
And you'd lie by my feet,
What a big mistake, I see you falling

Impressed

Sweet confetti out looking for a saviour,
Finding it hard to break the chain,
Nothing ventured nothing gained,
Ice cream beauty acting on her best behavior,
Finding it hard to bite her tongue,
Feeling so old as the night is young,

Six foot leaning on a lizard chest,
Two red dragons ironed on his vest,
All that money you deserve the best,
I'm impressed, I'm impressed, I'm impressed,

What you've got isn't all that you've been given,
Changing your body like you change your jeans,
Nothing is ever as it seems,
Something tells me it's marriage made in heaven,
Stealing your look from a magazine,
Playinng the part from a movie scene,

Six foot leaning on a lizard chest,
Two red dragons ironed on his vest,
All that money you deserve the best,
I'm impressed, I'm impressed, I'm impressed,

Everyday is like your birthday,
But the candle's burning,
Don't you see, Don't you see

Six foot leaning on a lizard chest,
Two red dragons ironed on his vest,
All that money you deserve the best,
I'm impressed, I'm impressed, I'm im

Six foot leaning on a lizard chest,
Two red dragons ironed on his vest,
All that money you deserve the best,
I'm impressed, I'm impressed, I'm impressed,
Oh I'm impressed, I'm impressed
I don't like you but I'm impressed
I'm impressed
I don't like you but I'm impressed
I don't like you but I'm impressed
I'm impressed, I'm impressed
I'm impressed, I'm impressed, I'm impressed
I don't like you but I'm impressed
I,I I'm impressed, I'm impressed
I,I I'm impressed
I'm, I'm impressed
I'm impressed, I'm impressed, I'm impressed
I don't like you but I'm impressed (yes I am)

Leave Me Alone

I ask you to hold me,
But you don't wanna hold me,
It don't work like that,
I want you to love me,
But you don't wanna love me,
I'm losing patience now,

Oh leave me alone (Oh, leave me alone)
Stop asking for more,
I'm going home on my own,
Oh leave me alone (Oh leave me alone),
I'm walking out of the door,
I'll make it on my own,
Leave me alone,
Leave me alone,
Leave me alone,
Just leave me alone

You like me to stroke you,
Careful I don't choke you,
Did you read my mind,
You say don't be blue,
Is that the best you can do?
I've lost my patience now,

Oh leave me alone (Oh, leave me alone)
Stop asking for more,
I'm going home on my own,
Oh leave me alone (Oh leave me alone),
I'm walking out of the door,
I'll make it on my own,
Leave me alone,
Leave me alone,
Leave me alone,
Just leave me alone

Oh leave me alone (Oh, leave me alone)
Stop asking for more,
I'm going home on my own,
Oh leave me alone (Oh leave me alone),
I'm walking out of the door,
I'll make it on my own,
Oh leave me alone (Oh, leave me alone)
Stop asking for more,
I'm going home on my own,
Oh leave me alone (Oh leave me alone),
I'm walking out of the door,
I'll make it on my own

Intuition

Everybody's been in my face
Tellin' me I gotta make a change
All I ever hear day and night is
"You better hurry up and get a life"
I need some direction cause the clock is tickin' away

Then a friend of a friend of mine
Says I've really been on his mind
And wants to go out and check out what the feelin's about
Says we have a deep connection, well it sure is news to me
And all I can say is

Intuition tells me how to live my day
Intuition tells me when to walk away
Could have turned left
Could have turned right
But I ended up here
Bang in the middle of real life

Then another one always says, she'd do anything to get ahead
She doesn't care if she has to scratch and claw to get in the door
She wants her 15 minutes of fame and 20 would be nice
But I guess it's her life

Cause intuition tells me that I'm doin' fine
Intuition tells me when to draw the line
Could have turned left
Could have turned right
But I ended up here
Bang in the middle of real life
Should have turned left
But I turned right
And I ended up here
And I fell alright

You make it hard for me
Can't find the real you
You really think that I can't see
What it is that you're trying to do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do do
Na na na na na na na

And all I can say is
Intuition tells me how to live my day
Intuition tells me when to walk away
Could have turned left
Could have turned right
But I ended up here
Bang in the middle of real life

Should've turned left
But I turned right
And I ended up here
And I feel alright, I feel alright
I feel alright, cause I feel alright
I feel alright, I feel alright

Wishing I Was There

Take your hand,
And place it in my pocket,
Flick your eyes back in their sockets,
Put those thoughts away,
Sometimes they're much too loud,
I'll take a breath,
And cradle your sweet head,
Should've stayed at home in bed,
Put that face away, I'm melting for you,

I know, I get cold,
Cause I can't leave things well alone,
Understand I'm accident prone,
Me, I get free,
Every night the moon is mine,
But when the morning comes,
Don't say you love me,
Don't say you need me,
I really don't think that's fair,
Boy, I'm not so dumb,
But when you leave me,
I'll be wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there

I dreamt, about another girl in bed with you,
You just laughed and smiled, denied the proof,
We're fine till I think of a problem,
I wish it made sense, Like a joke that no one gets,
It's a life without regret,
I want it to feel that way, forever and ever

I know, I get cold,
Cause I can't leave things well alone,
Understand I'm accident prone,
Me, I get free,
Every night the moon is mine,
But when the morning comes,
Don't say you love me,
Don't say you need me,
I really don't think that's fair,
Boy, I'm not so dumb,
But when you leave me,
I'll be wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there
Wishing I, wishin I, wishing I was there
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you
Wishing I, wishin I, wishing I was there
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you

No don't say you love me
Don't say you need me
I really don't think that's fair
Oh, I'm not so dumb
But when you leave me
I'll be wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you
Wishing I, wishin I, wishing I was there
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you
Wishing I, wishin I, wishing I was there
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you
Wishing I, wishin I, wishing I was there
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you
Wishing I, wishin I, wishing I was there
Wishing I, wishing I, wishing I was there with you

City

Had a dream,
Had a drowning dream I was in a river of pain,
Only difference this time, I wasn't calling out your name yeah,
Has it ended before it's begun,
You hold on,
And I try to run but,

Anybody heading in my direction,
Away from the city,
Anybody wanna change the way they feel, step inside,
Doesn't really matter where you wanna take me,
Away from the city,
I wanna start again, I wanna start again,
I wanna take take it back,
I wanna start again,
Start again

Funny how those friends forget you when you tire of their games,
You miss a show or a party that blows,
And they, they've forgotton your name,
And you wonder what you've become,
They pull you back when you try to run,
Well, anybody heading in my direction, away from the city,
Anybody wanna change the way they feel?
Step inside,
Doesn't really matter where you wanna take me,
Away from the city,
I wanna start again, I wanna start again
I wanna take it back, I wanna start again
Start again

I left the me I used to be, I wanna see this through,
I left the me I used to be, If only you'd see it too,
Well I wonder what you've become,
You pull me back when I try to run,

Well, anybody heading in my direction, away from the city,
Anybody wanna change the way they feel?
Step inside,
Doesn't really matter where you wanna take me,
Away from the city,
I wanna start again, I wanna start again
I wanna take it back, I wanna start again
Start again

Smoke

My lullaby,
Hung out to dry,
What's up with that,
It's over,
Where are you dad,
Mum's looking sad,
What's up with that,
It's dark in here,
Why bleeding is breathing,
Your hiding,
Underneath the smoke in the room,
Try, bleeding is believing,
I used to

My mouth is dry,
Forgot how to cry,
What's up with that,
You're hurting me,
I'm running fast,
Can't hide the past,
What's up with that,
Your pushing me

Why, bleeding is breathing,
You're hiding, underneath the smoke in the room,
Try, bleeding is believing, I used to
I used to

Why, bleeding is breathing,
You're hiding, underneath the smoke in the room,
Try, bleeding is believing, I saw you crawling on the floor,
Why, bleeding is believing,
You're hiding, underneath the smoke in the room,
Try, bleeding is believing, I saw you crawling to the door
Why, bleeding is breathing,
You're hiding, underneath the smoke in the room,
Try, bleeding is believing, I saw you falling on the floor

Left of the Middle

End of the third round,
As I put the phone down,
Chasing the same lines,
Over the old ground,
I'm pushing zero,
Where is my hero,
He's out there somewhere,
Left of the middle

And your world falls down,
And you're there calling out,
But it's something I can't say,
Though it seems the only way,
But it's a game that I can't play,
Not today,

I got my ticket,
And I got a straight road,
But I'm passing the same signs,
Over and over,
And my world falls down,
And I'm there calling out,
But it's something I can't say,
Though it seems the only way,
But it's a game that I can't play,
Not today,

And my world falls down,
And you're there calling out,
But it's something I can't say,
Though it seems the only way,
And it's a game that I can't play,
Not today,

I need to tell you,
Trying to get through,
It's not always easy,
