A Planet Made Of Rain

Here comes the big fall and it hurts like a cannonball
Wall to wall with crazy animals
Here comes the sting its got no meaning
If you're lonely bring yourself to the sing-song
Here come the humans maybe they'll explain
Why we make rivers of tears on a planet made of rain
Here's the twist you don't exist
If you miss me kiss me
Bye and that's it
If you (look) through and used to go where you want to
Love who you want to well screw who you want to
Here come the humans maybe they'll explain
Why we make rivers of tears on a planet made of rain

Here comes the sadness in a moment of madness
On a jukebox of poetry
Lost on the road with three lovely ladies
And a wind in the willows
(Learn) through our dreams their sweetness will kill us
Here come the humans maybe they'll explain
Why we make rivers of tears on a planet made of rain

Here come the dancing girls
Straight on (down) and down the stairs
Steps by step, your wings at the door
Here comes the ecstasy here comes the reason we
Come to be to be or not to be
Here come the humans maybe they'll explain
Why we make rivers of tears on a planet made of rain

Yeah the humans maybe they'll explain
Why we make rivers of tears on a planet made of rain

 

Would You Kill For Love?

[Lyrics]

 

Cello

It's just a touch,
It's the sweetest thing,
Like renaissance on my skin
It took a lifetime
To put these ghosts on the breeze

Cello

Forever circling,
Forever seeking,
Like a peace dove on the wing
If it takes a lifetime,
I'll catch that moment again

Cello

Cello

 

Dead Little Bird

My head is wrecked with all this lying,
This endless trying to be something
Maybe I should just never be.
Well, It's making me a loser,
It's making me a loser,
Now I don't care whatever happens to me.
Dead little bird,
Don't sing songs for no one no more.
Dead little bird,
I don't care.

My back is broke with all this flying,
This endless crying from the treetops,
To a world that thinks if I'm high, I'm free.
Well, it's making me a loser,
It's making me a loser,
Now I don't care whatever happens to me.
Dead little bird,
Don't sing songs for no one no more.
Dead little bird,
I don't care.
I don't care.
I don't care.

I'm a loser,
I'm a loser,
And I don't care.
I'm a loser.

Dead little bird,
I don't care,
I don't care,
I don't care,
I don't care,
I'm a loser.
I'm a loser.
And I don't care.

 

The Luckiest Man Alive

Understand,
I would have liked to stay,
But you made me feel invisible,
Now I'd prefer to stay away.

A big love,
Came crashing through the sky.
I was frightened and I'll always regret
That fear until I die.

We painted merry boats with wheels,
The heat made the whole day shimmer,
There was lemonade and bright balloons,
I felt myself crossing Moon River.

I remember flowers,
We drew them on our sleeves,
We said we'd go and sail the world,
But we'd never even seen the sea.

I'll get over you,
I've done it before so I know what to do.
I'll get over you,
I've done it before so I know what to do.

I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.
I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.
I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.

You said I was
The luckiest man alive.
Well I made you laugh and I made you cry,
But I never made you die.

I'll get over you,
I've done it before so I know what to do.
I'll get over you,
I've done it before so I know what to do.

I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.
I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.
I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.

After all is said and done,
You're the only one I want.
After all is said and done,
I'm the one you're gonna hurt.
I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.
I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.

I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.
I'm the one you're gonna hurt,
Still the one you're gonna hurt.

 

This One Is Wild

Meteoric rise to the bottom,
Dive into heavens high,
See the other side through the needles eye,
Where we shake our bones while they take our minds,
We are animals,
This one is wild,
This one is wild,
This one is wild,
This one is wild.

All grown up now,
Biologically any how.
Beauty fades when beauty's not real,
Hot babe on the wheel,
This one is wild,
This one is wild,
This one is wild,
This one is wild.

Meteoric fall,
Lets go crazy in a gunshop baby,
All around us everything is blazing,
But our lips are ice,
This one is wild,
This one is wild,
This one is wild,
This one is wild.

I've seen it all for what it is,
Gravity's a lie,
I can fly,
Sex godess, Marilyn, love child,
Don't leave me alone,
This is not my spaceship,
Don't leave me in control,
I cant face it,
Don't expect too much from me,
I fail at everything,
Crash with me.

Crash with me.
This one is wild.
This one is wild.
This one is wild.

I've seen it all for what it is,
Gravity's a lie,
I can fly,
Sex godess, Marilyn, love child,
Don't leave me alone,
This is not my spaceship,
Don't leave me in control,
I cant face it,
Don't expect too much from me,
I fail at everything,
Crash with me,
Crash with me,
Crash with me,
Crash with me.

 

The Girl With The Backward Skin

Sail on green leaf,
Go float on by,
Ten year old,
Inside out eyes,

I know what you see,
I know what you dream,
You dream and you see
To be out on a leaf,
Your leaf is a boat,
You glide and you float,
Right down to the stream,
Where your real friends would be.

What would be sweet, you tuck me in,
But who will love inside out skin?

They said it was good that someone could
By having no colour be one or the other,
My mum and my dad were gone in a year,
Sometimes when you're strange,
Some things are so clear.

I don't want to be strange
I just want to be hugged,
I don't want to be special,
I just want to be loved.
Everybody's my friend
Till they get tired and then
Freakshow, close your gate,
I'm alone and it's late.
I am the girl with backwards skin.
I am the girl with backwards skin.
I am the girl with backwards skin.
I'm just a girl,
And its always the same.
And its always the same.
And its always the same.
Always.

I know what you see,
I know what you dream,
You dream and you see
To be out on a leaf,
Your leaf is a boat,
You glide and you float,
Right down to the stream,
Where your real friends would be.

They said it was good that someone could
By having no colour be one or the other,
My mum and my dad were gone in a year,
Sometimes when you're strange,
Everything gets so clear.

It's times when you're strange,
Everything gets so clear.

 

Sky Land Scraper Paper Fly

Hard soft on to where we can feel the waves drowning over our clothes,
Cloning our toes,
Next will be our legs,
And if we don't leave our paradise,
Our paradise will parasite.

Light soft out to the desert is a beach to share some sand with a scorpion
Who will poison me when I cure his loneliness.
I care less.

Freeze frame on an arctic storm,
Come a long way from home,
Come a long way.

Sky land scraper paper fly underground to me.
Sky land scraper paper fly over land your love to where I sleep.

Subway is a sound,
Silence a song,
Body become one,
Madman with a gun,
I love you son,
But you done me wrong,
Now I'm a walking time bomb,
Bang.

Sky land scraper paper fly underground to me,
Sky land scraper paper fly over land your love to where I sleep.

And it looks just like the world is turning,
Spinning round to me,
It looks just like the world is turning,
Spinning round.

Sky land scraper paper fly underground to me,
Sky land scraper paper fly over land your love to where I sleep.

I know you don't know what I mean,
I know you can't know what I mean.
I know you don't know what I mean,
I know you can't know what I mean.

Sky land scraper paper fly underground to me,
Sky land scraper paper fly underground to me,
Sky land scraper paper fly underground,
Underground.
Bang.
Bang.
Bang.
Bang.

 

The Raven

The fire is gone,
And so am I,
The birdman's soul
Won't let me fly any more
Don't let me fall,
Cause if I fall I'll fall on you,
And all our dreams will disappear in the haze,
Cause we're not strong enough to survive those wounds
Don't let me fall,
Cos if I fall I'll fall on you,
And all our love will disappear in the haze,
Cos we're not strong enough to survive those wounds
Don't let me fall,
Cos if I fall I'll fall on you,
And all our time together,
Will suddenly mean nothing.

The waters rising,
Our ship is sinking in the sea,
The fishmans' gills are pumping,
With air but not for you and me,
Don't let me drown,
Cause if I drown you'll drown with me,
And all our dreams will disappear in the water,
Cause we're not strong enough to survive the sea,
Don't let me drown,
Cause if I drown you'll drown with me,
And all our love will disappear in the water,
Cause we're not strong enough to survive the sea,
Don't let me drown,
Cause if I drown you'll drown with me,
And all our time together
Will suddenly mean nothing.

These should be happy times,
We should be dancing in the street,
Breath the air, the love, the feeling.
Thank your god and any other god you meet.
The raven's flying,
His soul is sad and his heart is blue,
And all our dreams will disappear with the raven,
Cause we're not strong enough for what the raven can do,
The raven's flying,
His soul is sad and his heart is blue,
And all our love will disappear with the raven,
Cause we're not strong enough for what the raven can do,
The raven's flying,
His soul is sad and his heart is blue,
And all the time we spent together
Will suddenly mean nothing

 

The House That Illuminates Your Thoughts

I'm passing through,
The pleasant surroundings of a previous time,
Where even the pig farms,
Have automatic night-lights.

When you walk by their house,
They illuminate your thoughts,
And they do this for free,
And they've done this for me.

I'm passing through,
The place I thought I lived in,
It was the biggest place in the world,
Until I ventured out to meet you.

I walked by the house,
That illuminates your thoughts,
In the light I can see,
A night with you and me.

I walked by the house,
That illuminates your thoughts,
In the light I can see,
A night with you and me.

I walked by the house,
That illuminates your thoughts,
In the light I can see,
A night with you and me.

I walked by the house,
That illuminates your thoughts,
In the light I can see,
A night with you and me.

I walked by the house,
That illuminates your thoughts,
In the light I can see,
A night with you and me.

 

Baby You Broke My Heart But You Know...

Imprisoned by duty, embarrassed by beauty,
Determined to use it, decided to do it,
Invented a story where you'd be somebody,
With people who've got it and people who want it.

Diamonds and dollars and flowers and power,
Kisses in movies to raise your desires,
Photos and photos of previous times,
When you were the best of the beauty for hire.

My eyes are tired, I'm wound up, I'm wired,
You cheated, you liar, now my hands are fire.
I'm meant to forget you, I want to undress you.
Come on, call over, let me lick your wounds.

Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it,
I don't hate you for it.

You keep on crying, the public keep buying,
Keep bitching and spiting, the viewers keep biting,
Your dollies and teddies are rolling in readies,
Take them to beddies and they'll help you forgetties.

My eyes are tired, I'm wound up, I'm wired,
You cheated, you liar, now my hands are fire.
I'm meant to forget you, I want to undress you.
Come on, call over, let me lick your wounds.

Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
I don't hate you for it.
Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
I don't hate you for it.

My eyes are tired, I'm wound up, I'm wired,
You cheated, you liar, now my hands are fire.
I'm meant to forget you, I want to undress you.
Come on, call over, let me lick your wounds.

Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
I don't hate you for it.
Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
Baby you broke my heart,
But you know that I don't hate you for it.
I don't hate you for it,
I don't hate you for it,
I don't hate you for it,
I don't hate you for it.

 

I'm Not Sorry Now

Falling star never caught,
But I am not sorry now.
Field of dreams never achieved,
But I am not sorry now.

While I wait,
And while my heart breaks,
I drift away in dreams with
All the friends I've made.

Passion of spring
Is not a lasting thing,
But I am not sorry now.

While I wait,
And while my heart breaks,
I drift away in dreams with
All the friends I've made

So I don't care,
That I'm not where I planned I would be,
I am not sorry now.
I am not sorry now.

While I wait,
And while my heart breaks,
I drift away in dreams with
All the friends I've made.

So I don't care,
That I'm not where I planned I'd be
I am not sorry now.
I am not sorry now,
I am not sorry now.
I am not sorry now.

 

Fundamentally Loveable Creature

Someone somewhere
Has got a lot of money
From making bags that people put their stuff into,
When they're leaving home,
Like I'm leaving you

I've been drawing a map of the universe,
I've nearly finished putting the stars in
I've used up two boxes of coloured pens,
This place is big
How come I'm stuck with you for a friend?

You know, I've really tired,
I've been a pillar of strength at your side,
You're a fundamentally lovable creature,
But you've got defects in your design
You know, I've really tired,
I've been a pillar of strength at your side,
You're a fundamentally lovable creature,
But you've got defects in your design
