Dream Awake Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
There's a point to all this dreaming
To every man his just desserts
And every time I caught you leaving
I had to dream awake
I had to dream awake

For every time I came home screaming
And got sent away, with no warning at all
I had to dream awake
I had to dream awake

There's a calling, a calling, a calling
To everyone, who lost something
Who had to dream awake
Who had to dream awake
To take us under now
Take us under now

There's a fight were not conceding
Where words get mixed
And the point is lost
Where we have to dream awake
We had to dream awake
To take us under now
Take us under now

There's a warning, a warning, a warning
To everyone, who took something

A Caution To The Birds Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
The body's not secure,
The truth will not absorb,
And this crumbling apart,
Is no good for you at all..

Sound, there's order in the sound,
The sound that you don't know..

And with eyes that never look,
Past the time under foot,
And this reading in the cards,
Is a caution to the birds..

Sound, there's order in the sound,
The sound that you don't know..

Trying Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
Seven months in hiding
Buried in the sand
I lost my way, come find me

And tonight, your not even trying

Constantly reminded
That I was just in time
Don't run away, like I did

And tonight, your not even trying
Tonight, your not even trying..

Fake Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
You're telling me I should forget you
But why?
And you're talking like I never knew you
But thats a lie

And you're playing out your game again
Why are you never on my side?
And you're telling me I should forget you

Come on the guy's a fake
What do you love him for?
And it was my mistake
Just kicking in his door
And if it's just a game
Then what are we crying for?

And you're telling me I will regret you
But so
And you're talking like I should expect to
But you'll never know

And he's left you in the rain again
And you were always on my mind
And you're telling me I should forget you

Come on the guys a fake
What do you love him for?
And it was my mistake
Just kicking in his door
And if it's just a game
Then what are we crying for?

I don't know anymore

Come on the guys a fake
What do you love him for?
And it was my mistake
Just kicking in his door
And if it's just a game
Then what are we crying for?

And you're telling me I should forget you

Sideways Down Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
Maybe I should just move along
But you know I'd draw blood if that's what you want
And you found someone who makes you laugh
Who'd stick around but that's not what you want

You slipped at the start
And dragged the whole thing sideways down
And everybody fucks up
It's just something that's been going 'round

And you found someone who said he'd stay
Who'd give it all but that's not good enough

You're standing alone
And you're waiting alone cause you don't know what you want
And you're living alone
And your wondering now, cause you don't know what you've done

Maybe I should just disappear for now
Then maybe you could see a little clearer now

And you found some one who makes you laugh
Who promised you he'd never let you down
And you blame it on your broken heart
But everyone who reaches out gets stung

Now you're standing alone
And you're waiting alone cause you don't know what you want
And you're living alone
And you're wondering now cause you don't know what you've done

Maybe I should just move along
But you know I'd draw blood
If that's what you want

Underglass Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
Your will it drifts forever in the open air
my head, it looks forever but theres no one there
don't say, you'll wait forever then you disappear
I'll stay, I'll stay forever if you want me here

Cause I'm always thinking about it

How can I accept your disappointment man
it's not exact, it's no science man
I want it less than you ever have
I will not accept your disappointment man.

Damn straight, cause there's always someone who'll compare
I'd wait, I'd wait forever if you want me here
but I'm always wrong about it

I will not accept your disappointment man
it's not exact, it's no science man
I wanted less than you ever have
how can I accept your disappointment man.

Ship Caught In The Bay Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
Leaving, but never far enough
Like a ship caught in the bay
We'll show each other where it hurts
And well make the fuckers pay
And what is it we don't do well enough
That were constantly afraid.
And clearing up the pieces when your gone
But the silence always stays

The silences and formlessness is gone
With the hand that rocked the babe
Well forgive each other what is done
There's no one we could blame
And neither side is sure enough to move
There's something in the way
And still for all the wisdom that we've got
We're suffering the same

Buried in the work what never ends
And silently we fade..
And we walk on.. on..

Keepsake Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
Maybe its all we cant take
keeps us always returning
I'm keeping this as a keepsake
and everything else I'm burning

and maybe its cause you cant wait
keeps you always regretting
I'm keeping this as a keepsake
and everything else forgetting

when were down, down, down,
all the way
can we run away.

and maybe it cause I cant say
keeps you always believing

and maybe its cause you cant say
keeps me always believing
ill give you this as a keepsake
and right after that I'm leaving

and maybe its all we cant take
keeps us always returning
ill give you this as a keepsake
and everything else I'm burning..

I cant sleep..

they're hunting me down like an insect
chasing me down like an insect
crushing me down like an insect
stamping me out like an insect
running me down like an insect

Suffer In Silence Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
Come back, show your face
Can't you see
You're too good for this place
Can we leave?
It's not your fault, what they say
Don't believe

Or would you rather suffer in silence?
And defeat
Or would you rather suffer in silence?
Needlessly

Ah come on, show the way
I'll believe
Welcome back, you've been away
How's it been?

Or would you rather suffer in silence?
Needlessly
Or would you rather suffer in silence?
And defeat

You don't have to suffer in silence
And defeat
You don't have to suffer in silence
Needlessly
You don't have to suffer in silence
And defeat
You don't have to suffer in silence
Needlessly

Wake up
It's your love calling

You don't have to suffer in silence
And defeat
You don't have to suffer in silence
Needlessly

Locusts Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : Burn The Maps
Don't go outside tonight
The locusts fill the sky
And the devils work is never done
And the gypsy curse you wore
Can't hurt us anymore
As we raise our glasses to our mouths
And its all for one

And the bells that rang in hope
Are still swinging from the ropes
We thought we'd one day perish on
And the tune you never wrote
And the words you never spoke
Have gathered up and need a song

I'm moving off, I'm packing up
I'm willing to be wrong

Now your giving up the ghost
To the one who meant the most
And one day when she least expects she'll know
And the words you never spoke
And the tune you never wrote
Won't write itself or wait for evermore

I'm moving off, I'm packing up
I'm willing to be wrong

Song For Someone Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
Dryin' up in conversation, still
My head was halfway round the world
And workin' through your sleeping I was
Driven by the promise of a quick return
And I wonder if she'll be the very same
And I wonder if she's gonna break the waves
Again...

Tryin' just to focus on the good
I'm tired of divin' for the pearls
And every dawn is another morning less
I have to wait to wake beside that girl
And I hope she's gonna be the very same
And I hope she can survive this wave again

And if we're all for someone
And if we're born for someone
When will she come, that someone?
And put things in their place?

Comin' back to see you girl,
You know there's nothing surer in this world
Remember all the mad and seasons
Back when we weren't old enough to wait our turn
And I hope we're gonna be the very same
And I hope we can survive this wave again

And if we're all for someone
And if we're both for someone
When will she come, that someone?
And put things in their place?

Falling Slowly Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
I don't know you but I want you
All the more for that
And words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react

And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat
And point it home
We've still got time,
Raise your hopeful voice
You have a choice,
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
And moods that take me and erase me
And I'll paint it black

Well you have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat
And point it home
We've still got time,
Raise your hopeful voice
You had the choice,
You've made it now

Take this sinking boat
And point it home
We've still got time,
Raise your hopeful voice
You have a choice,
You've made it now

Falling slowly, sing your melody
I'll sing it loud

Loud

People Get Ready Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
People all get ready
'Cause we're tearing down the stand
Rebuild what's gone unsteady
And see it through with newer hands
And what has gone between us
Is a lot, is a lot
And who'll be there to clean us
When you're not, when you're not

People all get ready
'Cause we're breaking down again
Rebuild what's gone unsteady
And see it through with wiser hands
And what has gone before us
Is a lot, is a lot
And who'll be there to ignore us
When you're not, when you're not

We have all the time in the world
To get it right, to get it right
We have all the love in the world
To set alight, to set alight

People all get ready
'Cause we're breaking down the bands
Rewrite what's gone already
And see it through with angry hands
And what has gone before us
Is a lot, is a lot
And who'll be there to ignore us
When you're not, when you're not

And we have all the time in the world
To get it right, to get it right
And we have all the love in the world
To set alight, to set alight
Just look up, just look up

And we have all the time in the world
To get it right, to get it right
And we have all the love in the world
To set alight, to set alight
Just look up, just look up

People all get ready
'Cause we're coming to a stop

Rise Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
Breathing in the night
There's nothing else I'm needing now
The wind is at my side
And so are you
And together we will rise

Above all these word and promises we couldn't keep
Together we will fly above it all
But sometimes we will fall
From the light
But it shines on us tonight
And together we will rise
And together we will rise

And surely it's a sign now,
That everything's in tune to some kind of higher plan
Surely it's a sign
That you were right
And there's the secret line
That we've been denied
But we're crossing it tonight
And together we will rise
And together we will rise

Sometimes we will fall
From the light
But it shines on us tonight
And together we will rise

Pass this line
That we're crossing here tonight
But together we will rise
And together we will rise
We will rise, we will rise

When Your Mind's Made Up Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
So, if you ever want something
And you call, call
Then I'll come running
To fight, and I'll be at your door
When there's nothing worth running for,

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to stop it

You see, you're just like anyone
When the shit falls all you want to do is run, away
And hide all by yourself
There is no one, who is gonna run to help

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point even talking
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to fight it

So, if you ever want something
And you call, call
Then I'll come running

Sad Songs Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
And the light you gave
You took away when you were gone
It's a war that can't be won
With fists or talk or money
And there's no escape
But I'd better stop complaining now
I guess because

Too many sad words make a sad, sad song
Too many sad words make a sad, sad song

And the night you came
You won me all and all
And the better part of everything
Was born to run
And the price of fame
Is that they love you when you're gone
But I better stop complaining now
It's useless because

Too many sad words make a sad, sad song
Too many sad words make a sad, sad song

The Cost Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
Love has been the cause
Of all this suffering
And what has been our loss
Has been it's gaining
So lay your burdens down
And stop your crying

Will we let it burn
Burn us down, burn us

Low have been the odds
Of our reuniting
And where now can we turn
When we've got nothing

Will we let it burn
Burn us down, burn us
And maybe it'll turn
Us around

True Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
I find it so hard to be true
And all these lies I'm telling you
Are little anchors in my chest
That pull me down into this mess
I find it easy to distract
And just as soon as you turn
Your back, I'll be gone again

I find it so hard to be true
And all the secrets
I keep from you
Are like a blackness
In my heart that
Only tears us both apart

I find it easy to pretend
That we're not heading
For our end that's
Why I'm telling you..
I built a wall..
I cut you off..
Now there's no lies
That's gonna fix this up
I played the saint
And a saint I ain't

I find it so hard to be true
But I'm gonna try my best for you
And every distance that we've known
Will disappear before too long
And every line we've drawn
Will be erased before we're gone..
This I swear to you..

I built a wall
I cut you off
No there's no lie that's gonna fix this hurt..
I played the saint
I cursed your shame
Now there's no-one but myself to blame
That you're gone....

The Side You Never Get To See Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
If you come, come alone
Please don't take anyone else
'Cause we're never alone
And tonight I want you for myself
Take it back, take it back
Those words that you never can help

And the side you'll never get to see
Is the part I keep from everyone
And the side you'll never get to reach
Is a lie, is a lie

Will you dance, monkey dance
Don't have me repeating myself
'Cause you came here by chance
And I'll knock you right down again

And the side you'll never get to see
Is the part I keep from everyone
And the side you'll never get to reach
Is alive, is alive

And the side you'll never get to see
Is the part I keep from everyone
And the side you'll never get to reach
Is alive, comes alive

Bad Bone Lyrics

Artist : FRAMES, THE
Album : The Cost
There's a bad bone inside of me
All my troubles started there
And all the cracks are adding up to be
A little more than you can bare

When I met you, you were bitter still
From a scar you're never gonna show
And I was cursed with a jealousy
That's killed every love I've ever known

And when the anger that you feel
Turns to poison in your soul
And then the scars you only feel
Will start to show

You were naked on the balcony
And I was waiting in your bed
You said I pleased you only partially
But I knew my hunger would be fed

All my thoughts of going clear
And getting out before my time
Have died with you upon the vine
Have died with you upon the vine
To die with you upon the vine
To die with you upon the vine
To die

So if you'll lead the way

There's a bad bone inside of me

I Found You Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
The mental image
Grand illusion
Brought together
By total fusion

Lost for words
Your company holds me
Totally yours
Your mind controls me

Place and time
For rendezvous
Your place or mine
I said I won't touch you

Now visions inside that
Last all day
Come back soon
Oh won't you stay

For you
I found you
I found you... you... oh you

Keeping the senses
Open aware
To try to change you
Who would dare

Visions inside that
Last all day
Come back soon
Oh won't you stay

For you
I found you
I found you... you... oh you
I found you... you... oh you
I found you... you... oh you

The mental image
Grand illusion
Brought together
By total fusion

Lost for words
Your company holds me
Totally yours
Your mind controls me

Keeping your sense aware
To try to change you
Who would dare
Visions that last all day
Oh come back soon
No won't you stay

You...
I found you
I found you... you... oh you
I found you... you... oh you
I found you... you... oh you

I found you

Some People Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
Some people make it
Some people try
Some people break it
Some people cry
Some people lose it
Some people find
Some people lead us
And some are behind

It's a slow slow break up
That's what we find
It's a so so make up
Make up your mind

It's a slow slow break up
That's what we find
It's a so so make up
Make up your mind

What is the point of being amused
I see the people standing abused
They keep their faces buried in hands
They keep their plates clean
But underneath...

Some people drink gin
Some people dry
Some people drive cars
And some people fly
Some people take trains
Some people walk
Some people hold it
And some people talk

It's a slow slow break up
That's what we find
It's a so so make up
Make up your mind

What is the point of being amused
I see the people standing abused
They keep their faces buried in hands
They keep their plates clean
But underneath...
They like to fly with the jetsetters
They want to be with the go-getters
And then the moment comes around
Once again we'll find
He's taking pills and drink just
To find his peace of mind

Some people do it
Some people won't
Some people do da
Some people don't
Some people Liepzig
Some people Prague
Some people lucid
And some people vague

It's a no go faker
That's what we find
It's a no no taker
What's on your mind

It's a no go faker
That's what we find
It's a no no taker
What's on your mind

What is the point of being amused
I see the people standing abused
They keep their faces buried in hands
They keep their plates clean
But underneath...

Stand Or Fall Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
Crying parents tell their children
If you survive, don't do as we did
A son exclaims there'll be nothing to do to
Her daughter says she'll be dead with you

While foreign affairs are screwing us rotten
Line morale has hit rock bottom
Dying embers stand forgotten
Talks of peace were being trodden

Stand or fall
State your peace tonight
Stand or fall
State your peace tonight

Is this the value of our existence
Should we proclaim with such persistence
Our destiny relies on conscience
Red or blue, what's the difference

Stand or fall
State your peace tonight
Stand or fall
State your peace tonight

It's the euro theatre
It's the euro theatre
It's the euro theatre

An empty face reflects extinction
Ugly scars divide the nation
Desecrate the population
There will be no exaltation

Stand or fall
State your peace tonight
Stand or fall
State your peace tonight

It's the euro theatre
It's the euro theatre
It's the euro theatre

Stand or fall
Stand or fall
Stand or fall
Stand or fall
Stand or fall
Stand or fall

The Strain Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
Back to back
The president cracks
There's no power left
In the old white shack

It's the same

New Washington
Red button
One push
And the whole world is gone

It's the same
I don't think that he should take the...
Strain

Live off your nerves
You've run out of verve
Take those pills
And you'll feel no ills

It's the same
I don't think that he should take the
Strain

He can't have it all his own way
Same chance same place but wrong day
He can't have it all his own way
Same chance same place but wrong day
Oh no...

Scream at nature to steal some papers
On with the camera to get the answers
Tipping the waiter to find who that was
Leaving the night
Go undercover now

The strain
Strain

Back to back
The president cracks
There's no power left
In the old white shack

It's the same

New Washington
A red button
One push
And the whole world is gone

It's the same
I don't think that he should take the
Strain

He can't have it all his own way
Same chance same place but wrong day
He can't have it all his own way
Same chance same place but wrong day
He can't have it all his own way
Same chance same place but wrong day
He can't have it all his own way

Lost Planes Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
When you're hanging from a parachute
The whistling wind might play your flute
So forget it
Lost traffic

Someone said you couldn't fly the plane
So I guess this journey's all in vain
So forget it
Lost traffic

We're on a lost plane
Should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane
So forget it

Flying high but your fuel is low
How far can a missing plane go
So forget it
Lost traffic

Tell you that you're flying radar
But it's that much safer to take that car

We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane
So forget it
We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane
So forget it

We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train

We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane
So forget it

So when you're hanging from a parachute
The whistling wind might play your flute
So forget it
Lost traffic

Tell you that you're flying radar
But it's that much safer to take that car

We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane
So forget it

We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane
So forget it
We're on a lost plane
I should've taken the train
We're on a lost plane

Cameras In Paris Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
A call is taken
The plans are made
The pawns are placed
For the masquerade
Closed hotel rooms
Off the Place Pigalle
All concealed
Behind the femme fatale
Take it from me
There's cameras in Paris
Take it from me
There's cameras in Paris

Political friction is greased by detente
One country can and another one can't
All the movements in a metaphor
Who is the sleeper found dead on the floor
Take it from me
There's cameras in Paris
Some papers are missing
Exposure's automatic
Exposure's automatic
Exposure's automatic
In Paris

Umbrellas rolling in Hyde Park
Announcement made don't be seen after dark
Tension rising in the Eastern Block
Who are the two men with the
Same swiss clock

Take it from me
There's cameras in Paris
Some papers are missing
There's cameras in Paris
So take it from me
There's cameras in Paris
Some papers are missing
Exposure's automatic
Exposure's automatic
Exposure's automatic
In Paris

So take it from me
There's cameras in Paris
Some papers are missing
Exposure's automatic
Exposure's automatic
Cameras in Paris
Cameras in Paris
Exposure's automatic

I Live Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
And the feeling just ain't right
As I stare into the light
What a time to take a fall
I can't stand the night

And it's long in the tooth
But short in foresight
It's all that I have
And so I'll hold on tight

So I live
That's about all I can say
I breathe nearly every day
Some say that it's better this way
That I live, I live

Take a chance to hear the call
Make a stand to be so tall
'Cause it's all that you have
Like winter to follow the fall
Like winter to follow the fall

So I live
That's about all I can say
I breathe nearly every day
Some say that it's better this way
That I live, I live
Wo oh Wa oh, I live
Some say that it's better this way
That I live, I live

And the feeling just ain't right
As I stare into the light
What a time to take a fall
I can't stand the night

And it's long in the tooth
But short in foresight
It's all that I have
So hold on tight
So hold on tight
So hold on tight
So hold on tight

So I live
That's about all I can say
I breathe nearly every day
Some say that it's better this way
That I live, I live
Wo oh Wa oh, I live
Some say that it's better this way
That I live, I live

Shuttered Room Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
All I feel is the shuttered room
The striped light of detention
All I smell is shattered bone
Far too relevant to mention

In the shuttered room
In my shuttered room
In my shuttered room
In my shuttered room

Small holes where lead kissed the walls
This is no crime of passion
How many died without a cause
Could it be pure invention

[Chorus:]
In the shuttered room
In the shuttered room
In the shuttered room
In the shuttered room

Shuttered shuttered shuttered shuttered room
In my shuttered room
Shuttered shuttered shuttered shuttered room
In the shuttered room

The whimpered truths of the shuttered room
Mean so little as we reflect
Over bodies who fell in the pile
You know how the story is vile

[Chorus]

Shuttered shuttered shuttered shuttered
Shuttered shuttered shuttered shuttered
Shuttered shuttered shuttered shuttered
Room
In my shuttered room
In my shuttered room

The Fool Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Shuttered Room
A sort of place you don't often find
A quiet room to go out of your mind
Will you excuse me whilst I confide
I've found a place where I can hide

Lights out by nine as a rule
One grey blanket and a stool
Angels fear to tread where stands the fool
But the air is warm, and the walls are cool

So I'm kept away, so here I'll stay
Even the judges kneel and pray
I am the winner in any event, SNAP!
Who was the man who said society's bent?

So I'm locked away in my padded cocoon
A square of hell where nightmares bloom
Armageddon couldn't come too soon
But if it only meant that I could leave this room

Here stands the Fool

One Thing Leads To Another Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
The deception with tact
Just what are you trying to say
You've got a blank face, which irritates
Communicate, pull out your party piece
You see dimensions in two
State your case with black or white
But when one little cross
Leads to shots, grit your teeth
You run for cover so discreet
Why don't they

Do what they say
Say what you mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another

The impression that you sell
Passes in and out like a scent
But the long face that you see
Comes from living close to your fears
If this is up, then I'm up
But you're running out of sight
You've seen your name on the walls
And when one little bump
Leads to shock miss a beat
You run for cover and there's heat
Why don't they

Do what they say
Say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
One thing leads to another

Then it's easy to believe
Somebody's been lying to me
But when the wrong word
Goes in the right ear
I know you've been lying to me
It's getting rough, off the cuff
I've got to say enough's enough
Bigger the harder, he falls
But when the wrong antidote
Is like a bulge on the throat
You run for cover in the heat
Why don't they

Do what they say
Say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
One thing leads to another

The Sign Of Fire Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
Heart of stone -- I tried to reach you
Of the altar stone -- I tried to warn you
But you were not alone -- you wouldn't take the call
You wear brimstone -- I tried to warm you

Always the same desire
After the tone -- they try to storm you
You are a voice alone and who dares to question
Forgotten at home - how do you live with
Do you wear brimstone -- give me the call

Always the sign is fire
I'm being drawn by the heat
Always the same desire. Hot

Through the telephone -- I tried to reach you
But if you're not alone -- I know your life is torn
I see your lover's tomb -- why don't you mention
To me whenever I call -- I'll try to warm you

Always the sign is fire
I'm being drawn by the heat
Always the same desire

You're not alone
Always the sign is fire
Heart of stone
Always the sign is fire ... [repeat]

Running Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
I only wanted the truth, looking into
No more feelings of doubt
Then someone showed me the root of all evil
When all the lights were out
Shallow sleep, just leaning
Am I leaving the game?
I must be dreaming lots of undercover
Dreams are always the same
When the nights close in
When the nights close . . .

Well it's another night I waste at the opera
With a permanent friend
I should have taken direction much sooner
Another night in the air
If the lights came on
If the lights came on
I'd switch myself, with someone else
Then I'd shake myself
Things start to happen when I . . .
Things start to happen when . . .
Things start . . .

Oh, I can see myself running
But I'm standing still
And I can hear myself screaming
But there's no sound
When I wake up crying life brings me down
But it's not worth losing, until it's found
Oh, I can see my way home, home

I close my eyes and I'm back by the ocean
My hair feels wet
I'm on the brink of a lifelong ambition
Whatever dream comes next
I'm the seat of a hearse and guess who's driving?
I'm with you all the way
I hear the step of a fool, who's coming
All night, never day
Then the lights came on
Then the lights came on
I switch myself
With someone else
Then I shake myself
Things start to happen when I . . .
Things start to happen when . . .
Things start . . .

I can see myself running
But I'm standing still
I can hear myself screaming
But there's no sound
When I wake up crying life brings me down
No it's not worth losing, until it's found
Oh, I can see my way home
I'm at a house, all the windows are broken
It's where I once used to live
I must be losing all my undercover
Dreaming always the same

I can see myself running
. . . Still

. . . See myself running
I switch myself
. . . Running [repeat]

Saved By Zero Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
Maybe someday
Saved by zero
I'll be more together
Stretched by fewer
Thoughts that leave me
Chasing after
My dreams disown me
Loaded with danger

So, maybe I'll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I'll win (saved by zero)

Holding on to
Words that teach me
I will conquer
Space around me

So, maybe I'll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I'll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I'll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I'll win (saved by zero)

So, maybe I'll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I'll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I'll win (saved by zero)
Who needs to win (saved by zero)

Saved by zero

Opinions Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
Watching, waiting playing who's who
Don't play to win to be second to you
The door will open when I suffer enough
Who will hold this hand when the going gets rough?
Such good intentions always nipped in the bud
What do you expect? Well, you never could
If I stop laughing just to be at your door

Always opinions turning you round
Always opinions turning you down

I don't play chess but I could play with you
Not much impressed not who do you do
I saw it coming you saw it his way

Always opinions turning you round
Always opinions turning you down
Never decisions letting me know
Always conditions turning you round

I want you to draw the line
Why can't you make up your mind?
I know about you but what about me?
Excuses all the time
Blew away with 'high insight'
No more good advice so what about me?
I'm playing who's who

Who would have thought this would turn into fact
The door's wide open you have lost your act
I saw it coming you saw it his way

Always opinions turning you round
Always opinions turning you down
Nesen decisions letting me know
So now you've taken over
Always conditions turning you round
I'm playing who's who
I'm playing who's who

Reach The Beach Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
Passing time has no surprise
When pleasure found is my resource
Should I lose my lover's eyes
Then secrecy will hide my course

Forgotten lies aim to distract me
This mono mind must not connect
Purer nature will contain me
Free fall in air I will surpass
When I'm falling, calling, I return
Floating closer to your shore

I start to drift with the tide
Maybe I'll reach, I'll reach the beach
My heart is sealed watertight
Maybe I'll reach. I'll reach the beach

When in your eyes I see the sign
A teasing passion for a desperate man
Should I lose my lover's eyes
Then secrecy will hide my course
When I'm feeling too sure, then I drown
Floating closer to your shore

I start to drift with the tide
Maybe I'll reach, I'll reach the beach
My heart is sealed watertight
Maybe I'll reach, I'll reach the beach

Changing Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
Chased by fools in a world of their own
Pushing aside oil the signs that inspire
Avoiding the art, to create a new issue
Someone with handcuffs who's chained to the past
If I'm changing then I'm changing
Take off your mask there's no place in my desk file
For someone who reasons - regardless of new styles
Settled on a handshake, my first mistake
It's my life and I say
What for this, this what for?
I don't need those looks so pick your face off the floor
Justice may prove we should wait not provoke
To entertain must we stick to the rules?
If I'm changing oh won't you please let go
Trapped by rules in a world that could breathe
Choking the spark, that creates -- am I signing a new lease?
Ask yourself why before raising dead issues
You are someone who's lost touch and died in the clasp
I settled for a handshake, my first mistake
It's my life and I say
What for this, this what for
I don't need those looks so pick your face off the floor
Justice may say we should wait not provoke
To entertain must we stick to the rules?
If I'm changing oh won't you please let go [repeat]

Liner Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
Liner, it was a fantasy sea cruise
It was a bet destined to lose
Across the waves, what was he thinking?
Sea shore, he had a wet foot in the sand
He was holding U.N. plans
Across the waves. what was he thinking?
All aboard before the storm
They've never seer a place like this before

Island in a forgotten latitude
And with colonial attitude
They took the chance for repossession
Grey skies there were no palm trees in the wind
And when a saint starts hiding sins
It's all aboard whilst peace is sinking
All aboard before the storm
Crossing swords before the dawn
Seen before, back in an infant's dream
Like a rubber duck, floating in the bath

So I sailed away on their time, Liner!
Taking young lives in their prime, Liner!

Harbour, I saw a flag waving goodbye
I saw a soldier's baby cry
What's it all for, that's what I'm thinking
Inside, I must he lacking true insight
Because I always sleep at night
Across the waves whilst men are . . .
All aboard before the storm
Crossing swords before the dawn

Seen before back in an infant's dream
Like a rubber duck, floating in the bath

So I sailed away on their time, Liner!
Taking young lives in their prime, Liner!
Liner! To a distant shore
All aboard before the storm

Privilege Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
So correct me if I'm wrong though a day's twenty four hours long
How come you feel unwired and disconnected
Draw attention to yourself is your life a living hell?
Change your act, re-write the script the way you planned it

Radio news reports
Truth and fact distorts
And the world's majority is understated
If the views are on your mind
It's the wavelength you must find
Be prepared to hold your weight
Huh! Hah!
Privilege you have the right
If you're on the frequency
If you're on the frequency
So when you say that

There's always something else to do
There must be one thing you can try
There's always something else to do

When a week has just three days
It's the young that always pay
But who keeps the cold at bay with understanding
If there's a dying urge inside
To release forgotten pride
Don't rely on words of gloom
Don't be disjointed
Privilege you have the right
If you're on the frequency
If you're on the frequency
So when you say that

There's always something else to do
There must be one thing we can try
There's always something else to do

Heretic the witch was right
She had the frequency
She has the potency
Energy the time is right
To fight for decency

Privilege you have the right
If you're on the frequency
If you're on the frequency
So when you say that
There's never anything to do
There must be one thing you can try
There's always something else to do
How?
How I begin, Tell me how, How?
I tune in, Tell me how, How?
When do I tune in for now?
Draw attention to yourself
Are you tuned into the show?
She had the frequency
She has the potency...

Outside Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Reach The Beach
Outside, I stretch the mind that hides within
New pride, I lose four walls that keep me tied
Outside, I breathe new air that reaches me
Fresh tide, does all the cleansing life can give
Tongue-tied, no words will match this point of view
Chastise, I don't belong as no one owns
Washing, flowing, taking all my fears away
Rushing, blowing, touching, gives all life a grace
Washing, flowing, taking all my fears away
Outside

Outside, I stretch the mind that hides within
New pride, I lose four walls that keep me tied
Washing, flowing, taking all these fears away
Rushing, blowing, touching, gives my life a grace
Washing, flowing, taking all these fears away
Outside

Lose Face Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Forbidden Image
Do you care to think on

One trouble shooter
That we could fix on
This fevered globe
Was always meant to be
A home from home
But who's looking after

Lose face, lose face
In your place

Could we all fight in
An age demented
With a white bright light
That shines at night
What have we invented?
We all breathe in the same air
Yet we all die for the air space

Lose face, lose face
Standing in your place
(Don't you worry that you're too scared)
Lose face, lose face
I bet you wonder if you're too scared
Too scared to lose face
(Don't you worry that you're too scared)
Lose face, lose face in your place

Lose it
Lose it
Come on
Lose it
Lose it

A "pied a'terre"
No phone connected
So when you need him
Can't even reach him

This fevered globe
Was always meant to be
A home from home
But who's looking after

Lose face, lose face
Standing in your place
(Don't you worry that you're too scared)
Lose face, lose face
I bet you wonder if you're too scared
Too scared to lose face
(Don't you worry that you're too scared)
Lose face, lose face in your place

Lose it
We all lose
Lose it
Breathing the same air
[repeat x3]

Less Cities, More Moving People Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Another home falls by the wayside
A few old cushions stuffed with pride
A hand is shaking from the rubble
This spirit is still alive
A servant bares his occupation
Breaks his back just growing old
Never mind his views were taken
Just saw by the rules of old
Less cities more moving people
Rushing out with pride
Less cities more moving people
Hands that once were tied

A church bell rang for the occasion
The average man learns what's in store
Now he sees where his life was taken
Fighting heat, but growing old
Less cities more moving people
Rushing out with pride
Less cities more moving people
Hands that once were tied

Is this what we call education
Just watch the wheel of time revolve
But why is this not what I'm thinking
Just one mind and the unknown
Less cities more moving people
Rushing out with pride
Cities are moving people
Who just forgot their lives

Sunshine In The Shade Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Sunshine warming the small of my back
Whatever virtues I lack
You can't see until I move
Until I move in the shade
Sunshine in the shade
Sunshine in the shade
Sunshine in the shade

But then inside
Sometimes I feel so cold
Catching these self thrown blows
But enough of the future I see
A shadow belonging to me
Sunshine in the shade
Sunshine in the shade
Sunshine in the shade

Every man climbs a mountain
With the hope to make a stand
Every man makes a mountain of his life
A masterplan

Only hope
Light in the dark
Only hope
Light in the dark
Gives me hope

Sunshine in the shade
Sunshine in the shade
Sunshine in the shade
The shade of life
Gives me hope of
Some time and place

Woman On A Train Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Pictures chase across the ceiling
As I try to sleep at night
There's a voice inside my darkness
Laughing at the life I've lost
(She's) no girl on pills in limbo
She's a woman on a train

With her senses sharpened by the warning cold
She brings me to memory
She flashed her lights, her mission bites
She flashed her lights
Across my desert mind (still no change in me)

(She's) no girl on pills in limbo
She's a woman on a train
She's here...
She's here...
The woman on a train...

And I will speak no words but the truth for her to hear
Hold her close... but never dare

(She's) no girl on pills in limbo
She's a woman on a train
She's here...
She's here...
The woman on a train...

A friend for life, for life and after
Woman on a train...

And I will speak no words but the truth for her to hear
She will speak for us both
She will speak for us all
Till I learn to care...

(Woman on a train)
She'll override my best intention
(Woman on a train)
Attack my weak deception
(Woman on a train)
A friend for life, for life and after
(Woman on a train)
I'll never catch her off her guard
(Woman on a train)

Wish Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
I will not speak strangely of this
Just put myself where you are
Life is so much clearer adrift
Just put myself where you are

Your wish is my sentence
Your truce can't deny
Blocked veins in the system
I think there you are, so...

I just put myself where you are

I could come much closer than this
To put myself where you are
But if life is just to hold and resist
I'll lose myself

Your wish is my sentence
Your truce can't deny
Blocked veins in the system
I think there you are, so...

I just put myself where you are
I just put myself where you are

So your wish is my sentence
Your truce can't deny
Blocked veins in the system
I think there you are, so...

I just put myself where you are

I will not speak strangely
Just put myself where you are
Life is so much clearer adrift
Just put myself where you are
I could come much closer than this
Just put myself where you are

Lost In Battle Overseas Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Lost in battle overseas
Next thing you know you're on your knees
If you trust in someone on the screen
Then you'll be lost and overseas
Always sharing the time on your hands
Think of who plans
The future for you
There's nothing you can do
So you're in a uniform
And it's your calm before the storm
Where is it taking us

One sign of the cross
And you're let loose
How long is the stretch of this hangman's noose
You kill someone and it's just for gain
We'll end up losing just the same
Always sharing your time with no plans
Think of who hands
The future to you
There's nothing you can do
So you're in a uniform
And it's your calm before the storm
Where is it taking us
Where is it taking us
What does it do for you
This one sign of the cross

One sign of the cross...

Lost in battle overseas
The last thing we'll know is on our knees begging "Please..."
If you trust in someone on the screen
Then you'll be lost and overseas
Always sharing the time on your hands
Think of who plans
The future for you
There's nothing you can do
So you're in a uniform
And it's your calm before the storm
Where is it taking us
Where is it taking us
What does it do for you
This one sign of the cross

So we are lost in battle overseas
We are lost
We are lost in battle overseas
We are lost in battle overseas
We are lost...
In battle overseas

In Suspense Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Is it the glow of evil
That presents itself again
With one rule for the species
And another for the man

Place yourself in his shoes
Observe his evil bent
Watch out for illusion
Or you may become a friend

In suspense,
Who, what, where and why
In suspense,
And it's who, what, where and why

Take a tip from no one
Become immortal man
No fear of your ending
Prepare your masterplan

When in suspense,
It's who, what, where and why
I'm in suspense,
And it's who, what, where and why

I look for the connection
Between yourself and I
(There is) less time than we wish for
Another species dies

Invent a life with your eyes
Inscribe your own mottos
Use some imagination
Then watch your spirit grow

When in suspense,
It's who, what, where and why
Oh God I'm in suspense,
And it's who, what, where and why

I look for the connection
Between yourself and I
(There is) less time than we wish for
Another species dies

In suspense
Why
I look for the connection
In suspense
[repeat]

Facing The Wind Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Just give me something to hold on
A piece of the world
That won't go wrong
Is there somebody there
I can talk to
Somebody sharing the same view

Facing the wind

One avenue that would lead to
A place on this earth
Where we all grew
Longing for travel we stood still
Watching a sky that was once blue

Facing the wind
Facing the wind
Facing the wind
Facing the wind

Each line we throw gives us false hope
One ray of light, God I can't cope
Thinking about what we all are
One human race that's gone too far

Facing the wind
Facing the wind
Facing the wind
Facing the wind

Are We Ourselves Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Lost feelings return
So maybe I can learn
To stop the world of a lie
This time around

Are we, are we, are we ourselves?
Are we, are we, are we ourselves?

Because seen through these eyes
We lead a double life
No one will know
So check it out steppin' out here I go

Are we, are we, are we ourselves?
Are we ourselves and do we really know?

Well, lost spirit returns
Now maybe we learn
To stop this world of a lie
To this earth we are bound I ask you

Are we, are we, are we ourselves?
(Are we ourselves?)
Are we ourselves, and do we really know?
Ooo, do we know, are we ourselves?
(Are we ourselves?)
(Are we ourselves?)
Are we ourselves?
Do we really know?
(Are we ourselves?)

I Will Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
All I notice is the red in your eyes
A hidden secret
We are not supposed to cry
Feeling the need to express
Only in order to find
How similar we are!

Possess yourself
Or somebody else will
And when you're yourself
You might find you're someone else

You'll never know...
You'll never know...
You'll never know...

If the love doesn't set you free
Then I will

The pleasure of life
Is the pain of living
What you take out
Is replaced by "giving"

If the love doesn't set you free
Then I will
If the love doesn't set you free
Oh I will

If you can contain
This blind emptiness
Then life is forward
No idle regrets

If the love doesn't set you free
If the love doesn't set you free
If the love doesn't set you free
Then I will

If the love doesn't set you free
Oh I will

If the love doesn't set you free
Then I will

Love doesn't set you free
It's the will

You'll never know...
I will...
You'll never know...
I will...

Phantom Living Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Phantoms
Phantom living
A ghost before my eyes
A deep thrill feeling
That someone roams my life
Sets off in the air at night
Steers me round to mother earth
Turns this search into a pair of learning eyes
Staring at a photograph
Doesn't stir the memory
Of something I thought would last
Underneath it all

Phantom living
Phantom living

I lose myself
With a distance in my mind
Throwing out deception
Emplanted, steals my time
I feel the meaning
Your words cannot describe
And perverts the answer
Of this action underlined
Staring at an open book
Just becomes the story
Of something I thought would last
Underneath it all

Phantom living
Phantom living
Phantom living
Phantom living

So staring at an open book
Just becomes the story
Of something I thought would last
Underneath it all

Phantom living
Phantom living
Phantom living
This is phantom living

Secret Separation Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
We are passengers in time
Lost in motion, locked together
Day and night, by trick of light
But I must take another journey
We must meet with other names
We must meet with other names

You touched my heart so deeply
You rescued me now free me
Don't watch me cry just see me go
I'll take away the strongest feelings
You will ever know

There will be no more isolation
In our secret separation
You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me
Now free me

We are passengers in time
Lost in motion, locked together
Day and night, by trick of light
But I must take another journey
We must meet with other names
If you hold me you will hurt me
Be brave

There will be no more isolation
In our secret separation
You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me
Now free me

We are matching spark and flame
Caught in endless repetition
Life for life we'll be the same
I must leave before you burn me
I am the stranger who deserts you only to love you
In another life

There will be no more isolation
In our secret separation
You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me
Now free me

I'll bear one precious scar that only you will know
Passengers in time, free me
[repeat x5]

Built For The Future Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
Some say a trick, some say a look
It's just a way of thinking after all
From underneath something concrete
It's just a way of coping, coping with it all
Some with revolt, some will obey
Who attains perfection and who's to say
A criminal or a cardinal
They're both frightened of angels
It doesn't mean much now
It's built for the future

For some a walk, to some a dance
It's just a form of motion one and all
Without dispute the least aware
Will no doubt see the ragings of a fool
First we look then we spy
The man who has a vision wants it all
A sin so clean rule supreme
The power to undermine
It doesn't mean much now
It's built for the future
It doesn't mean much now
It's built for the future
It doesn't mean much now
Build it up, build it up for the future

Some say a trick, some say a look
Some say a trick, some say...

First a glance, then a chance
To make a simple gesture worth it all
A conquer all, a desert stall
That serves a drink to people under the sun
At last the place, now where's the time
To take in all the other points of view
Some are inert but one exists
To build a bridge
It doesn't mean much now
It's built for the future
It doesn't mean much now
It's built for the future
It doesn't mean much now
So build it, build it up, for the future
It doesn't mean much now
Some will revolt, some will obey
(Built for the future)
Who attains perfection, and who's to say
It doesn't mean much now
So build it up, build it up, built for the future
It doesn't mean much now
A criminal, a cardinal
(Built for the future)
Both frightened of angels
It doesn't mean much now
So build it, build it up
Built for the future
It doesn't mean much now...

Treasure It Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
Feel the pull, feel the swing, ain't no value
'til you treasure it
Feel the pull, feel the swing, ain't no value
'til you treasure it

Tread carefully, leave no tracks behind
Move easily, don't stack what you find
Breathe deeply, always look ahead
Wide open there's a space time won't touch

Switch back, turn back
Switch back, turn back

We'll have our turn to use what we've learned
And stand up into the light of our lives
So please yourself, feed yourself
Take a seat for this coming attraction
When you're feeling insecure do you treasure it
You should treasure it
Feel the pull of nature's course and treasure it
Treasure it
Switch back, turn back

Feel the pull, feel the swing, ain't no value
'til you treasure it
Feel the pull, feel the swing, ain't no value
'til you treasure it
Feel the pull, feel the swing, ain't no value
'til you treasure it
Feel the pull, feel the swing, ain't no value
'til you treasure it

Switch back, turn back
Switch back, turn back

Think positive, leave the negs behind
Move easily don't stack what you find
Breathe deeply, always look ahead
Wide open there's a space...
I say, wide open there's a space time won't touch
When you're feeling insecure do you treasure it
I treasure it
Feel the pull of nature's course and treasure it
Oh, I treasure it
Switch back, turn back

Feel the pull, feel the swing, ain't no value
'til you treasure it.
[repeat x9]

Chase The Fire Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
You chase the fire
You paint the signs
I walk the wire
You shout the lines

There was a time when my mind was made up by you
Is this a deja vu or am I just missing you
I've been here before and lived to the thrill of it all
And I might be in the dark but I'm watching you

You chase the fire,
But you can't take the heat
You slay the lion,
But you won't taste the meat

Your look was all it took
To get me hooked on you
My eyes were closed
But now I'm watching you

You chase the fire,
But you can't take the heat
You slay the lion,
But you won't taste the meat
You chase the fire, you chase...

You chase the fire
You paint the signs
I walk the wire
You shout the lines

There was a time when my lines
Were made up by you.
Is this a web of lies,
Or am I just seeing through

You chase the fire,
But you can't take the heat
You slay the lion,
But you won't taste the meat
I've been here before
And lived through the thrill of it all
You chase the fire
You chase the fire

Can't Finish Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
One morale that needs the strengthening
A timely episode of fate would you be there?
The sound of silence seems so deafening
To have to fight alone seems so unfair ...don't tell me

I can't finish what you started
I'm too far in to be without
Can't seem to preach without the practice (oh no)
Far too many of us would like to get something started

How many of us would like to get things started?
The rush of youth what it could achieve
May create more than cruising out to plunder
All you need is faith all you need is faith in yourself...
don't tell me

I can't finish what you started
I'm in too far in to be without
Can't seem to preach without some practicing
Far too many scenes to be acted out

It's time for us to start restructuring
Well my imagination, my imagination is my tool
Society won't have my ears for lecturing
All I have is my faith all I have is my faith get away...
don't tell me

I can't finish what you started
I'm too far in to be without
Can't seem to preach without the practice (oh no)
Far too many scenes to be acted out

I can't finish
(I'm too far in to be without)
What you started
I can't finish
(Too many scenes to act out)
No no telling baby
[repeat]

Walkabout Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
Investigate what your ancestors left you
A wreath, a god, and belief in slavery
You fight away this monochrome pact
It's legal action, it's matter of fact (that)
The Romans hailed a sun god
The Christians tortured Jews
Together is that belief for you

Walkabout the rock
It may give you a few answers
Don't lie about the rock
Walkabout the rock
It gives me all the answers
Don't lie about the rock

What better way to conquer a nation
Than steal away its spiritual release
When after all the door is left wide open
Hey men of God say what do you preach?

Walkabout the rock. . .

So maybe it's dreamtime
Close your eyes and drift away
Dreamtime
Close your eyes don't fight it

You believe what you believe
Without question without waste
You innoculate the children
Against their reason against their fate
You pray for mystical decisions
Through the gates
We are inside this is our final state

Walkabout the rock . . .

Dream, dream time
Close your eyes and drift away
Dreamtime
Close your eyes...

To every man a kingdom for the better of man's estate
Dreamtime
You believe what you believe
Without question without waste
There's no dreamtime

Walkabout the rock...

One Look Up Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
I've got a rover's eye
All the more to see with
It's an overview with space in mind
I can watch myself and bring my faults in line

With one look up oh yes I'm trying
The spirit's up I'm almost there
With mental wings I'm nearly flying
One look up I can see down

If you want to breathe fresh air
All you have to do is stand well clear
Because the things we need aren't always here
So if you feel the need to travel fly over the wall

With one look up oh yes I'm trying
The spirit's up I'm almost there
With mental wings I'm nearly flying
One look up I can see down

If you want to hope accept despair
So we can kick off the flesh, kick off the flesh, and be able to share

With one look up oh yes I'm trying
The spirit's up I'm almost there
With mental wings I'm nearly flying
One look up I can see down

(One look up, I can see down)
It's an overview
(One look up)
With space in mind
(I can see down)
I can watch myself
(One look up)
And bring my faults in line
(I can see down)
With one look up
(One look up)
Oh yes I'm trying
(I can see down)
The spirit's up
(One look up)
I'm almost there
(I can see down)
With mental wings
(One look up)
I'm nearly flying
(I can see down)
With one look up
(One look up)
I can see down there
(I can see down)

Read Between The Lines Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
You're not the first to be lonely
Thank God you're not the only
Relax with the fact you're surrounded
Follow your bloodline
We feel warm when we think we're protected
Cry out when we feel rejected
Maybe in some other life we're connected
We've seen it all before

Please take heart, find your soul
Read between the lines
Please take heart, play your role
Read between the lines

Please believe I implore you
Spirit flight will restore you
Only love can ignore you
Another fighting heart

Please take heart, find your soul
Read between the lines
Please take heart, play your role
Read between the lines
Please take heart
Read between the lines
Please take heart

Feel warm if you think that you know me
I thank God when you show me
Happy that we're just surviving
Please take heart, we'll survive

Please take heart, find your soul
Read between the lines
Please take heart, play your role
Read between the lines
Please take heart
Read between the lines
Please take heart

You're not the first to be lonely
Between the lines
Thank God you ain't the only
Between the lines...

Sense The Adventure Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
Are you locked in the paranoia
You should enjoy the sense of doubt
Break down the walls of institution
I'm going to let my paganism out

A god of light, baron of evil
Supposed to show me hallowed ground
But these our monsters we created
To civilize our primal shouts

Sense the adventure
Let the feeling out
Sense the adventure
Let your pagan out
Let him out
Sense the adventure

Not just because you have your answers
It shouldn't mean my views are seen in vain
An earthly bid for resurrection
Could never soothe the human pain

Sense the adventure
Let the feeling out
Sense the adventure
Let the pagan out
Let him out
Sense the adventure

No war of rights to battle angels
Will ever justify these ends
So recognise yourself in others
A generation makes amends

Are you locked out in no direction
You could escape to feed the mind
To an untrodden field of vision
Sensitivity will find

Sense the adventure
Let the feelings out
Sense the adventure
Let your pagan out
Better not let him out

Sense the adventure
[repeat x5]

Camphor Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Walkabout
It was a feeling like camphor rushing through my tubes
A cooling draught, a rare interlude
Drowning depression to admire and trust
Who can watch a man making dust to dust?
One legal dose of environment
The ballad of a playground swing
There's a lonely dog so misunderstood
He's left his chores to become someone's friend

Things are so enchanting
High on life
Things are so enchanting
High on life

Then once again the flash of pines
Back to my breathtaking view
Where the peaks are so high full of encouragement
And the paints of the gods color code

Things are so enchanting
High on life
Things are where they can't be
High on life

So I'm thinking about my favorite dream
An adventure not out of bounds
It dries my eyes to know Mother Earth hears
I'm invisible to blue hounds
It pleases me to have a mind on the run
When the body is fixed tied in shoes
What expression is left to fulfill the gap
Just a nod will suffice where are you?

Things are so enchanting
High on life
Things are so enchanting
High on life

I'm Life Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
I'm life
Watching
I think I can
Measure the flow
I could swim that river

I'm fast breeding
I think I have
No cruise control
I can't stop the spiral

I'm sand
Wave blown in the air
I come down in raindrop
I'm time passing
I think I know we'll meet again
We can climb the mountain

I'm life
Watching
I think I can
Measure the flow
I could swim that river

I'm fast breeding
I think I have
No cruise control
I can't stop the spiral, spiral

I'm life...

Take a breath, life...
Feel it stretch, life...
Life...

I'm sand
Wave blown in the air
I come down in raindrop
I'm time passing
I think I know we'll meet again
We will climb the mountain

I'm life...

I'm life...

Driven Out Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
Driven out by thieves,
I watch them pillage the planet
Fueled by a fattening greed,
Trees fall to the hatchet

We're chopping against the grain,
Our spirits in a vacuum
Sadly ignore the pain,
The end arrives, we all lose
We all lose, I hope it comes, it comes, it comes around

Driven out
Holding out
Day by day survival
Castaways have silent lives
With the strength to rival you

See now I'm driving in my car
I used to be able to walk this far
Now I turn on the light
I used to be able to sleep at night

I'm cooking with microwaves
To warm up food that's not seen the soil
Plugged into my TV
I'm used to the lies they're telling me
I hope it comes, it comes, it comes around

Driven out
Holding out
Day by day survival
Castaways have silent lives
With the strength to rival you

Driven out
Holding out
Driven out
Holding out
With the strength to rival you

I'm hoping that we find,
More to life than meets the eye
Can we escape the grind,
Build a life that's more worthwhile
Rid of this empty pride,
Full of selfishness inside
Bathe in a turning tide,
Until then we all hide
We all hide
I hope it comes, it comes, it comes around

Driven out
Holding out
Day by day survival
Castaways have silent lives
With the strength to rival...

Driven out
Holding out
Could take up your best time
Driven out
Holding out
With the strength to rival you
Rival you
Rival...

Subterranean Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
There's a clash of tunnel vision
Work and play, live and die in corridors
People are turning subterranean
And digging in, digging in for the fall

There's a flag arms to call a nation
Make the break from school to dole queue
People are turning radioactive
Beep beep the sensor beeps it out.
Come on...

Let's escape this cold world comfort
Make the break, I'll meet you on the surface
Let's escape this cold world comfort
Make the break, I'll meet you on the surface
Way on up...

There's a mood but no legislation
No guarantee it's a tabloid reality
People are making good connections
write, write, write... it up for us all
Come on...

Let's escape this cold war comfort
Make the break, I'll meet you on the surface
Let's escape this cold war comfort
Make the break, I'll meet you on the surface
Way, way on up...
Way on up...

No more cold subterranean...
No more cold at all...
Lock the door...

Let's escape this cold war comfort
Make the break, I'll meet you on the surface
Let's escape this cold war comfort
Make the break, I'll meet you on the surface
Way, way on up...

Precious Stone Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
I danced in the surf at the edge of an ocean
Could have been someone else could have been anything at all
Don't deny that you ask yourself
How do you weigh in this precious stone?

I stumbled on a flaw in the order
Unwrapped the gift and spread the sheet to the border
There's no virtue if there's no sin
How do you weigh in this precious stone
At the point of no return
This precious stone
At the point of no return
This precious stone
At the point of no return
This precious stone
At the point of no return

Well at the end of the day
There's no me without you
At the end of the day
There's no me without you
So how do you weigh in this precious stone?

Well I'm a tick in the clock of old Father Time
Feel the beat of the rock under the palm of of my hand
Don't deny that you ask yourself
How do you weigh in this precious stone?
We're at the point of no return
This precious stone
At the point of no return
This precious stone
At the point of no return
This precious stone
At the point of no return

This precious stone...

Gypsy Feet Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
Land to land
from sea to shining sea
a dream's a dream
no matter where you stand
heart to heart
your urge is pulling me
search we search
with your night light calling
Play hide and seek with me.
go dancing, following
go to the peak with me,
aspiring, climbing
to your sweet retreat
Scene to scene
we cast a sexual eye
and then life unites
we're undercover
Play hide and seek with me
go dancing, following
go to the peak with me,
aspiring, lying
at your gypsy feet

Calm Animals Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
Calm animals expect nothing
live suspicious to balance out
the effect of reason on their sunrise
there's a moving hide
calm animals with no shackles
free on a shrinking plain
so presented, it's economics
small wonder the pastures die
calm calm calm calm animals
free on a shrinking plain
calm calm calm
adventures to roam alone
So civilized the code stifles
a race with gestures has lost its way
the chance was given to think social
but we choke on greed and excess
Going by going by
just for politics we live the lie
you cry, we cry
part of history will wonder why

Shred Of Evidence Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
Turn your eyes to the page
Read about the living age
Polish up your crystal ball
Check the night before it falls
Let it go
Please beware of nature's witch
Picks her berries from your ditch
And you'll be gone
Turn you into Orobas
Turn you in; not one of us
And you'll have words to say about that
Let it go
(Shredded evidence)
Not so much as a word
Not so much as a clue
Not so much as a trace
Disappear into the blue
Hell appears your living end
Where you're left you will suspend
And you just dangle
They boil the fat, we chew the weed
They make the facts, we can't succeed
Without a little trick up your sleeve
Let it go
Not so much...
Turn your eyes to this bed; let it go
Turn your eyes for me she said; let it go
Clear your mind of other thoughts; let it go
Take my hand, you astronaut; let it go
Not so much...

The Flow Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
When a dream survives the longest night
and the vision takes a hold
when a breath inspires it's a sign of life
you're the string and I'm the bow
Jump in the flow
just get carried by the flow
Where the bank defines the water's edge
the river in my spine
as we circulate maybe we shall collide
you're the space and I am the time
Jump in the flow
we get carried by the flow
Through a sleep I ride
feel like a night that shines
with a memory of long ago
we drank to them
said goodbye as friends
we survive, we survive it so
Back in the flow
carried by the flow
just look how far you've been
look how far you've come
all the things you've achieved
don't try and find any reason get carried by it
jump in the flow

World Weary Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
World weary
is there a dream in your heart?
world weary
take it back to the start
little lacklustre
the nut's in your hand
little boy hopeful
don't plant in the sand
And you will see
hearts are pumping for you
and you will find
there's a vessel for you
and you will grow,
roots are searching for you
there must be a reason for it.
reason for it all
Little partaker
there's a role you must play
little facemaker
smile in your day
world weary
write your name in the stars
world weary
you are back at the start

Cause To Be Alarmed Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Calm Animals
A little kid goes from
size one to size two
still we have same job
what is it that we do
all the change that's going on
in that tiny mind
still we're indecisive,
still we're wasting time
and there's cause, cause,
cause to be alarmed
who feeds the dove
who gives the world its charm
cause, cause, cause to be alarmed
we are pumped up fantasies
until the world's disarmed
a little hungry face
deserved more than roots to chew
they will erupt "enough's enough"
they'll lay the blame on you
and these perceiving minds observe
to count the final score
no treasure chest, to reinvest
just a bunch of whores
and there is cause, cause,
cause to be alarmed
no making love
until the world's disarmed
cause, cause, cause to be alarmed
a frigid little fantasy
until the world's disarmed
fly bird high bird
a love bird got shot
heard the lead bird's a dead bird
a new mind goes from birth,
to full view to old fool
still we have the same face
just what do we achieve?
all these minds that think alike
do damage to the strain
where we stand the very spot
we will not stand again
and there is cause, cause,
cause to be alarmed
who feeds the dove
who gives the world its charm
cause, cause, cause to be alarmed
we are pumped up fantasies
until the world is disarmed
fly bird high bird
go see bird and tell bird
that a love bird got shot,
heard the lead bird's a dead bird

All Is Fair Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Ink
Man as a beast
Came down from the trees
Crawling around
Spread his disease
Was up on the rocks
Playing with fire
Inventing his needs
To quench the desire

Blood on his hands
Love on his mind
Hell as a future
Leaving Heaven way behind

[CHORUS]
All is fair in love and war (na)
Kiss me you fool it's love that we're all dying for
All is fair in love and war (na)
Head for the hills, who knows what all this fighting's for?
Man is a beast

Shame at the feast
Too much to eat
Throw out the waste
At the beggar's bare feet
Aim for the Moon
Shooting the stars
Insanity roaming the streets
But the sane drive new cars

Blood on his hands
Love on his mind
Selling the future
The debts are left behind

[CHORUS]

A-oo

Up in the the alter zone
Man is a beast
Down in his structured home
Still man is a beast
Up on the rocks
Playing with fire
Inventing his needs
Oh, quench his desires

All is fair in love and war
Kiss me you fool it's love that we're all dying for
All is fair in love and war (na)
Time and patience always find the open door

[CHORUS]

Wo-ho, man is a beast
Man is a beast

How Much Is Enough Lyrics

Artist : FIXX, THE
Album : Ink
How much is enough?

Good enough's not good enough
Don't complain that you've got it tough
With all you have your life's a bore
Can't relax you want so much more
Blind needs won't set you free
Can't you see that
Time is slipping away?
But I got to say

[CHORUS]
How much is enough when your soul is empty?
How much is enough in the land of plenty?
When you have all you want and you still feel nothing
How much is enough, is enough?

Gravity may bring you down (down) (down)
But harmony could spin you 'round (around)
Information ariel says buy, buy, buy material
Give take all day long
Can't you see it's
Hopeless being strong
When you've got live it wrong?

[CHORUS]

How much is enough?
Buy, buy, buy
Buy, buy, buy

So give me your attention
I know it's getting late
While we were dreaming
Something slipped away
We're drowning in possessions
Playing tricks with our minds
Lost from one another
Baby, put your hand in mine
Time is slipping away
But it's not too late

[CHORUS]

How much is enough?
How much is enough?
When you have all you want and you still feel nothing
How much is enough, is enough?
How much is enough, oh?
When you feel nothing at all
