The Sickness 04:39
curse the cold curse this heat bless the earth underneath my feet as I cross this city with its insanity I bless the sickness that is haunting me ah... the more we are in number the less of each other we see bless this sickness that is killing me I am sick to my stomach and I feel I cannot breathe But bless the sickness for awaking me Ah... (x2) [ah, awakening me ah, all I see] we are counting our blessings but coming up short do you have time enough aplenty to wither and get bored? if we all just keep on moving keep busy, you believe we will dodge the sickness we call insanity curse this city choking the land that it calls home curse a life lived among people and yet so alone for it will not go on forever without cutting a few veins may we all get sick together maybe then we will change

I got nothing I'm out of ideas I’ve tried, and I’ve failed, and I'm out of tears Guess I'll be going You won't let me in I won't sit on your doorstep Til the rain comes in I got nothing I can't be of no use You won't draw me close So just cut me loose I can’t try to save you If you won’t be saved And I’m truly spent By this game that you’ve played I got nothing But love, for you, babe I got nothing I'm out of ideas Can't help you now, I'm facing my fears We're all alone In the dark all our lives That's just the way it is That's just a fact of life I got nothing But love, for you, babe I got nothing But love I got nothing You won't let me reach out But if you need me You'd need only to shout Once, and I'd be there But I know that you won’t So I’m turning out the light And I’m closing that door I got nothing…

Predictable 05:07
It’s late and I can’t sleep I’ve got swollen eyes sad and restless feet There’s a flood Covering half the street And the cars keep flying down and sailing off into the deep I’ve got you on my mind Isn’t that so… predictable? Ah, so this is the song I write Isn’t it so… original Now I know you’d never lie Though at times we all stretch the truth I’m sorry it’s taken me so damn long to trust you We’ve all got low self-esteem It’s the modern curse When I was young I got told I loved myself too much I thought that must be worse I found it so hard to believe That love could truly be …unconditional So I had to run away Again and again Guess I became Predictable Is this my story? Coz it’s not quite What I thought it would be Somewhere I got distracted Somehow lost conviction It isn’t you, it’s me Ah, so this is how I fight Isn’t that so… reprehensible? You’d think I could hold my own light Well, at least my weakness is dependable Yeah, you can depend on me to cry Isn’t it understandable? I’m trying to build my own belief That some day I’ll be capable

I live in a looking-glass house nowadays But there ain’t no warmth left in these windows Not since you went away My hair is getting longer And I count each passing day I think you’d like where I am at now If you’d be proud, I couldn’t say Do you find me in your eyes When you close them at night Coz I think I finally realised You are my light Wish that I could paint a picture Strong enough to crawl inside Trying to make it all seem real for you Just how much I feel for you But my poetry has suffered Since I packed my books away And you had warned me this would happen Why do I never listen, to what you say Coz it’s you I love It’s you I’m thinking of Ah, it’s the simplest of things That’s all I want Ooh I learned too late Ooh You were my fate Ooh Now only time will tell If it’ll heal the cuts I made How could I make them so well When it’s you I love It’s you I love I won’t just let you slip away I can’t wait another day

Baby when you’re with me We ride the waves You build me up then let me breathe I pull you back in You follow me out I fall in that endless place And you pull me back down We are around it now, around it now We have found it now, found it now We are surrounded now, surrounded now We are around it now, around it now Baby when I’m alone One just ain’t enough I think of you and I Am lost in love My breath is for you I am here and now The tide comes in and out At the same time somehow We are around it now, around it now We have found it now, found it now We are surrounded now, surrounded now We are around it now, around it now Should time pass me by If I was a fool If I stayed focused on myself And never opened to you They would find me years from now With nothing to lose But nothing gained From self-imposed loneliness and blues We are around it now, around it now We have found it now, found it now We are surrounded now, surrounded now We are around it now, around it now…
