Track Name: I Figured The World Out
They've got the van surrounded,
Snipers on the roof,
Copters buzzing frantic,
Their sights on me and you

I broke down in the garden depot,
I could hear the garden growing
And despair blew me away,
Like a leaf on an autumn morning

I get so angry at this space age,
This flesh-meat hit parade,
This bargain bin filled to the brim of used up yesterdays

Weekdays under flourescents,
In Our favourite office chairs,
As they tear down the old building,
sucking memories from the air

Cant you see youre all i've got
All that I cant live without
While you were sleeping,
I figured the world out
I figured the world out

Your Father said,
Keep your cards close to your mouth,
Dont let him know you need him,
Give yourself a way out

You were abandoned by that boy,
Like a broken toy,
Now you're afraid to let me love you

Cant you see youre all i've got
All that I cant live without
While you were sleeping,
I figured the world out
I figured the world out

And all my dreams have failed me
Like election night promises
My enemies invade me
Like a thousand doubting Thomases
I can hear the garden growing
I can hear the garden growing
As the sun slips into the shadows,
Raindrops turn into ice and snow
Been sleepwalking through life
Sleepwalking through life,
Somewhere we never wanted to be

Cant you see youre all i've got
All that I cant live without
While you were sleeping,
I figured the world out
I figured the world out
Cant you see youre all i've got
When I dont know who I am
While you were sleeping,
I figured out a plan
I figured out a plan
I figured the world out
I figured the world out
Track Name: Ghost Like You (Acoustic)
The bands are unplugging their keyboards,
My shoes are sticking to the dance-floor,
Talking to no-one on the cellphone,
It's exhausting trying to look interesting,
Stand outside freezing in my sex clothes,
But no ones picking up my signals,
Sitting alone in a McDonald's,
Spooning processed food into my chemical mouth.

And the ghosts like you,
And the ghosts like me,
And the lives we live,
That we don't believe,
And my hands remember,
What it's like to touch,
And I can't distinguish,
Between love and lust,
To see you, to see you again.

Cargo trains roll past the window,
Sun-bound, pointed to the sea,
I can't go home it's far too early,
But there's nothing here for me,
Locust women waiting for bodies,
Trying em on like different skins,
Who sucked the romance out of living,
It used to be so promising.

And the ghosts like you,
And the ghosts like me,
And the lives we live,
That we don't believe,
And my hands remember,
What it's like to touch,
And I can't distinguish,
Between love and lust,
To see you, to see you again.
To see you, to see you again, oh,
Oh, You're not alone in this world,
Oh, You're not alone in this world,
Oh, You're not alone in this world.

Love is bursting through my veins,
Like fire in my veins,
Squeezing sadness from my eyes,
And my chemicals are firing just to see you,
To see you, again, again,
To see you, to see you, again,
Again, again, again, again.
Track Name: World Without Pity
Welcome to the human race,
Youre born, you live, you die, replaced,
Chase the vapours of success,
And in the end its meaningless

We started off so young and strong
But time was always marching on
Same stars, unmoved, hang in the sky,
When we are born and when we die

Glory glory hallelujah
This old world will try to fool ya
Glory glory hallelujah
This old world will try to fool ya
But its a world without pity,
Even for a pretty girl like you,
And for your pretty boy too

Welcome to the nuclear war,
This faded world of failing dreams,
Corpses stare from luxury cars,
Unplugged like old arcade machines
Pro-life next to abortionist
Muslim next to methodist
Scattered through the air as dust,
Crying out "remember us"

Glory glory hallelujah
This old world will try to fool ya
Glory glory hallelujah
This old world will try to fool ya
But its a world without pity,
Even for a pretty girl like you,
And for your pretty boy too

Theres no time for crying
Keep going, keep trying
The worlds trying to kill you,
One day it will succeed I tell you
