LYRICS


MERCY

She said
"Come to me
Come to me
I'm in the sky"

"I'll be your body
I'll be your shelter
I'll be your eyes
When you -
When you have none"

She said
"Come to me
Come to me
I'm in the sky"

"I'll be your love
I'll be your mercy
I'll be salvation
When you have none"

GIRL WITH NO NAME

I'm terrified
Falls through my hands
Like water from heaven
I cannot keep

The noise you make
A ghost I've heard?
It makes me shake
It's quite absurd


I'm terrified
Force myself
To speak the name
I cannot breathe

I'm terrified
Give my life
To miss the place
I cannot leave

The noise you make
Disturbs the air
It makes me shake
Itís quite unfair


I'm terrified
Force myself
To speak the name
I cannot breathe

The noise you make
A ghost I've heard?
It makes me shake
It's quite absurd

NEW DAY

From me time will strip you away
And cast me in the sea
That breathes your name
And the life from me


And like everything of which I'm certain
This memory will decay
But left unbled will rise up
And slowly smother me


And the barrel is always clean

And the sun will rise

And the seasons will pass me by

And life is what it seems

LIFE IN CLOUDS

Don't see me
As the help that never comes
Don't see me
As indifferent to your daughter
And your sons

Through all the years
That have gathered us
I'm the one standing
With open arms
And however weary...

Don't see me
As running from your love

There is nothing else that I can say -
Don't see me
As running from your love

EMPTY

We can never be together
We can never be apart

Now all time flows against us
And the sun burns up our hearts


Our future remains unwritten
These tears we've shed like skies

Like a million angels burning
The phosphor blinds my eyes

We're unchallenged by the ages
A token pillar salts our love

There will never be an ending
While we drink each other dry

There will never be an ending
We're uplifted by the stars

We've struggled over the horizon
We've drowned all life in the sea

We've lost all grip on logic
We've never been so empty

EUROPA

To far horizons
And distant shores
We've travelled together
My needs ignored

This temptation is timeless
It's a version of love
A tenderness longed for
For we're not undeserving thereof

A home to return to
With surrendered controls
I want to worship your body
Not empty our souls

I'm looking for peace here
I want your embrace
Not harvested resentment
Nor words bitter of taste

Tonight is our last now
Together like this
Drown me in your body
Breathe me your kiss

Drown me in your body
Breathe me your kiss

Drown me in your body
Breathe me your kiss
