A New Day at Midnight

 

Dead in the Water | Caroline | Long Distance Call | Freedom | Kangaroo
Last Boat To America | Real Love | Knowwhere | December | Be Mine | Easy Way to Cry | The Other Side


dead in the water
people stand in line
people stand in line
people stand in line
a premonition of the killer's angel eyes
an armageddon sky tell it like it is
its like the old man says
we're dead in the water now
dead in the water

they come from miles around
they come from miles around
they come from miles around
in avarice and love
to suckle on the blood
of some forgotten god
sell it like it is
its like the old man says
we're dead in the water now
we're dead in the water now
dead in the water

a simple act of faith
a simple act of faith
a simple act of faith
a celebration of the colour and the creed
the cancer and its seed
crackles on the mic
can call it what you like
we're dead in the water now
we're dead in the water now
dead in the water

caroline
Caroline
those crazy eyes that shine
them days blowing through my mind
like falling leaves
it ain't no good
I try hard as I would
yeah but you just wont let
my poor heart be

the final war
a steel-eyed dinosaur
girl I want you more, than I can say But Caroline
it seems like every time
honey all I get
is further away

the state I'm in
got goose bumps on my skin
see the water jump right in
your hearts so free
I'll face the facts
its paper on the cracks
girl till I got you right
back here with me

the final war
a steel-eyed dinosaur
girl I need you more, than I can say
but Caroline
it seems like every time
baby all I get
is further away

baby all I get
is further away

the final war
a steel-eyed dinosaur
girl I want you more, than I can say
but Caroline
it seems like every time
honey all I get
is further away

honey all I get
is further away

baby all I get Is further
further
further
further away

long distance call
if I lean my weight on it
if I fix my heart to the line
might find a way from it
to some easy time

my skin's all white with it
I'm up so high when I fall
I fall so far from it
ain't nowhere at all

early morning sun
shine it and I'm gone
to plane out on the lake
hey hey yeah yeah
to glide out on the wing
turn around and sing
the fear now taking hold
I'll bring you love but it's all been sold

my heads all wired with it
my tongue gets tied when I speak
the space inside roaring
when that signal break

early morning sun
shine it and I'm gone
to plane out on the lake
hey hey yeah yeah
to glide out on the wing
turn around and see
the fire now taking hold
I'll bring you love but it's all been sold

freedom
take your eyes off me
there's nothing here to see
just trying to keep my head together
and as we make our vow
let us remember how
there's nothing good that lasts forever

time out on the running boards
we're running
through a world that lost its meaning
trying to find a way to love
this running ain't no kind of freedom

feel the touch of grief
you stand in disbelief
can steal the earth from right beneath you
and falling in so far
they know just where you are
yeah but there ain't no way to reach you

time out on the running boards
we're running
through a world that lost its meaning
trying to find a way to love
this running ain't no kind of freedom
yeah yeah

its time to clean these boats
fold up these parachutes
the words goodbye but I can't say it
the end is close at hand I think we understand
there ain't no use trying to delay it

time out on the running boards
we're running
through a world that lost its meaning
trying to find a way to love
this running ain't no kind of freedom
freedom freedom

time out on the running boards
we're running
through a world that lost its meaning
trying to find a way to love
this running ain't no kind of freedom
of freedom
freedom

time out on the running boards
we're running
through a world that lost its meaning
trying to find a way to love
this running ain't no kind of freedom

fasten on my mask
i'm bending to the task
I know this work is never finished
and if I close my eyes
I can still see you dancing laughing loud and undiminished

kangaroo
don't pay no mind to it
oh let it blow
break you up inside
if you don't let it go
jeeze what are you like honey
I don't know

recommended by my bank
and everybody in the tank
first of all I'd like to thank

this might take a while honey
hey don't blink
missing by a mile now we're
here on the brink
not a day goes by honey
I don't think

I could be your volunteer
we'll make the whole thing disappear
saddle up we're outta here
you could be my olive branch
lift me up above the stench
walk me through the avalanche

honey won't you be my flood
nothing ever comes out good
trouble in the neighbourhood
conversations gone askew
and how do you make it fell like new
kookaburra kangaroo
will you won't you be my leach
take it all and when I screech
leave it there just outta reach
take me to that burning bush
give me something I can't crush
lead me out into the hush

so far behind
so far behind
so far behind
so far behind

last boat to america
paint me a boat, away I'll float
into the stillness of a pure blue sky
there's nothing here to hold me now
and I got no more tears to cry
grant me a wish, just one more kiss
baby kiss me till the daylight's through
these are days that make you blue
and there ain't nothing more a fool can do
in and out of dreams all day
cos tonight I'll dream about
baby let's go walk away this time
sing me the truth sweet bird of youth
I got some trouble trying to understand
beneath the veils of mystery
are these the movements of an unseen hand
our arms are filled with sunken treasure
our heads are filled with perfect sound
do we truly see it, hey
till we're placing it in the ground
take just what you need from me
cos tonight I'll dream about
baby let's go walk away this time
want to take you all away this time
don't matter, lie to me, I'm falling
don't need your light on me, no no
don't need your light on me?
paint me a boat, away I'll float
into the stillness of a pure blue sky.

real love
the dawn and all its majesty is taking me away
the dawn and all its honesty is turning me to play
through the bars of iron rings
way beyond the bad things
I hear the voice of Eden cry
lift me up and walking on high
this real love
real love

this world in all its clarity its glorious, its fake
this world in all its vanity is more than I can take
down the road, the iron wheels
chain my heart to how it feels
I hear the voice of Eden cry
lift me up and walking on high
this real love
real love
real love
real love

something in my heart is telling me its time
to meet the eye of destiny and leave it all behind
through my bones an iron rage
pins my soul upon the page
I hear the voice of Eden cry
lift me up and walk on high
it makes me want to lay down and die
this real love
real love
real love

real love
make it real make it real

The dawn and all this majesty is stealing me away

knowwhere
slow voices speaking through a hurricane
said that I wanted but I lied
your looking good
hey man I can't complain
ghost on the road at night

seen him out walking he's just skin and bone
I don't see nothing in her eyes
some call it hell felt like a home from home
I'm dreaming different skies

I don't know where I
I don't know what I'm supposed to do now
get it on all night
I don't know where I
I don't know what I

it seems to me boy
that you're doing all right
I don't know what I
I don't know where I
long way to go now
keep it all inside

36 hours but my mind is fresh
live for the moment then I'm gone
suck on that sympathy and feel the rush
go on my blue eyed son

I don't know where I
I don't know what I'm supposed to do now
get it on all night
I don't know where I
I don't know what I

it seems to me boy
that you're doing all right
I don't know what I
I don't know where I
long way to go now
keep it all inside

december
All my tears will dry away
All my tears will dry away
All my tears will dry away

Words don't bother me no more
Black money falling to the floor
Flags out on the balconies
Black money washing to the seas
Oh my mind
What happened to the time
December

All my house got blown away
All my house got blown away
All my house and all my home
Walls of glass and walls of stone
Got blown away

Stations in the neon light
Your body strange as dynamite
Killers underneath our skins
Black mirrors black hyacinths
Oh my eyes
What happened to the skies
December
December
December

be mine
from the very first moment I saw you
thats when I knew
all the dreams I held in my heart
had suddenly come true
knock me over stone cold sober
not a thing I could say or do
cos baby when I'm walking with you now
my eyes are so wide
like you reached right into my head
and turned on the light inside
turning on the light
inside my mind hey

come on baby it's all right
sunday monday day or night
written blue on white it's plain to see
that rainy shiny night or day
what's the difference anyway
baby till your heart belongs to me

if I had some influence girl
with the powers that be
I'd have them fire that arrow at you
like they fired it right at me
and maybe when your heart and soul are burning
you might see
that everytime I'm talking with you
it's always over too soon
that everyday feels so incomplete
till you walk into the room
say the word now girl I'll jump that moon hey

come on baby it's ok
rainy shiny night or day
there's nothing in the way now
don't you see
winter summer day or night
centigrade or fahrenheit
baby till your heart belongs to me
thursday friday short or long
when you got a love so strong
how can it be wrong now mercy me
jumpin jesus holy cow !
what's the difference anyhow
baby till your heart belongs to me

easy way to cry
smoke curls through my hands
these one night stands
are making me crazy I know
morning I'll go
crowds in the rain all passing by

faith gone from your eyes
each word it flies
taking you further away
and come that day
there ain't no easy way to cry

and as I watch you leave I stand
inside my house of straw
and everywhere I go I find
things recollecting to my mind
how right it all could be

faith gone from your eyes
each word it flies
straight to the heart and I know
watching you go
there ain't no easy way to cry

so right now

and as I watch you leave I stand
inside my house of straw
and everywhere I go I find
things recollecting to my mind
how right it all could be
could be

So right now

the other side
meet me on the other side
meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
see you on the other side

honey now if I'm honest
I still don't know what love is
another mirage folds into the haze of time recalled
and now the floodgates cannot hold
all my sorrow all my rage
a tear that falls on every page

meet me on the other side
meet me on the other side

maybe I oughta mention
was never my intention
to harm you or your kin
are you so scared to look within
the ghosts are crawling on our skin
we may race and we may run
we'll not undo what has been done
or change the moment when it's gone

meet me on the other side
meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
see you on the other side

I know it would be outrageous
to come on all courageous
and offer you my hand
to pull you up on to dry land
when all I got is sinking sand
that trick ain't worth the time it buys
I'm sick of hearing my own lies
and love's a raven when it flies

meet me on the other side
meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side see you on the other side
honey now if I'm honest
I still don't know what love is
