"Come Down"

There is a fire
It always burns
And there's no way back
To where we were
Before the start
Of this reckless trip

Come down with me
Come down with me
Down at the bottom there's a chance

To turn around
These twisted flames
That have turned on us
To utilise their warming glow
Not their power to destroy

Come down with me
Come down with me
Down at the bottom there's a chance

My friend I know
Just how you feel
Once again we've failed
We were all heart
Held on to hope
Here we are again

Come down with me
Come down with me
Come down with me - we'll see
Around the next corner there's a chance.

"I Love Biology"

Happiness is slippery, you know
As fast as it may come it also goes
The path is narrow, on both sides are steep cliffs
Below the water's dark and deep
Oh, please can I keep?
Walk straight or you'll weep
For a thousand years, my son

The sweetest things are those we cannot keep
The churchbells cannot wake you from your sleep
You smile and say "I love biology
Wouldn't it be great if you and me
Could simply distill
This into a pill
We'd be rich"
You make me smile...
Wahnsinn, wahnsinn, yes I know

So the next time happiness is now
And you would like to bottle it somehow
You know, you know it doesn't work that way
If you hold on too hard it slips away
And you're left there with your regrets
Nobody who lets
You escape yourself from time to time
So you should know
To enjoy, and to let go
Happiness is like a breath.

"Isolation Song"

Isolation
To belong
Out of reach I am
To be one
To be one
Felt like that once

Feels so long ago
Illusion
Can be so sweet
And so can
And so can
Truth once in a while

Walking down the ridge
Within grasp
Smell of understanding
Something vast
Feel like there's little
We deserve
Traitors to the bone
Though we tried
Though we tried
Something in us died.
 
Even they
Even they
Tear apart their prey.

What is just?
To reach there, try we must.

"Love And Luck"

This is the same street
And there's where you used to live
That door was open
And we still had things to give

Walk in and out of love
Walk in and out of love

You had a cold sore
And you were hiding your face
Oh those beginnings
Seem so very far from this place

Walk in and out of luck
Walk in and out of luck
Walk in and out of love
Walk in and out of love

Stay inside of love
And bow your head to luck
Stay inside of love
And bow your head to luck

So many levels
Of memories here for me
Layers and layers
Of flaking paint by the sea

Walk in and out of luck
Walk in and out of luck
Walk in and out of love
Walk in and out of love.

"Nattlunk"

Your face is not like an open book
More like an open house
Hallway, bedroom, balcony
And a tower with a view
For good men and for bad
Your place holds much appeal
A fireplace to warm the feet
And precious things to steal

Be careful who you let in
Be careful who you let in

You once tried to build a boat
From driftwood out at sea
Your will was strong as rock
Blurring your sensibilities
When the planks were shattering
This wreck was all the world
The oxygen and love around
Unavailable, absurd

Know in which waters you swim
Know in which waters you swim

But you cut loose just in time
And I hope you always can
And maybe one day spot the storm
And turn around beforehand

Always watch over you.

"Oil"

In a deep and buried cave
In a long forgotten place
Oil is trickling down the wall
It longs to be found
Longs to be found
Longs to be found

Along this ancient trail
All along this ancient trail
I can see rows and rows
And rows of men
Looking for life
Looking for love
Looking for love.

"Ought To"

Memories dance around my head
And turn empty walls
Into screens
Capturing me

Ought to be so easy
To just rise above this
Ought to be so easy

This is real
This is now
Slipping away
Through my fingers and out of sight
Vanishing dust

Ought to feel so special
But you just feel alone
Ought to feel so special

Powers are at work
From a dark place
Where part of each soul is made

To rise above this
Ought to be so easy
Ought to be so easy
Ought to be so easy

It's you and me, sinking
It's you and me, sinking
And when the bottom comes
Each of us
Will have to find our own way back
Up into the light.

"This Old Machine"

As I sit with this old machine
I think of what their eyes could have seen
I think of what they all could have been

All the dreams of futures
All the hopeful voices muted
The visions wasted in the wind

This big chunk of an old tree
Still here, but they, like you and me
Cannot know and cannot see

What joys and what disasters
Lie between now and ever after
What is lurking round the bend

We should just hold on to what we know
And to those we love we should show it
Through the high tide and the low

What will we leave behind
To the next droves of humankind
Of what was really on our minds?
