The Sweetest Blood

Where the mosquitoes fly 
I go there every night 
I need your sweetest blood to stay alive 

Somebody dreamt you up 
And left you cast aside 
Sometimes your sweetest blood fills up your sweetest eyes 

You don’t know who you are 
It must be sweet combinations of love that make up your blood 

Like those mosquito flies 
My kiss turns to a bite 
That gets my wings abuzz deep in the night 

Well I’m intolerable  
I’m hard to stand beside 
Don’t let your sweetest blood fill up your sweetest eyes 

You don’t know where you’re from 
It must be sweet combinations of love that made up your blood 

Sometimes I really don’t know how you don’t see 
You could take what you want and be free 
And not drain blood with me 

So don’t you forget: you’ve got the sweetest blood 
You’re not gone, not yet 
You’ve got the sweetest blood 
There’s still time to unite the sweetest blood 
The sweetest blood 
I love the sweetest blood 
I love the sweetest blood 

And don’t you forget: you’ve got the sweetest blood 
You’re not gone, not yet 
You’ve got the sweetest blood 
There’s still time to unite the sweetest blood 
The sweetest blood 
I love the sweetest blood

 

With No Control

How many years to go?
We simply do not know
Buried 'neath the days
Always slips away

As paces slow
We tread over stones
With no control
With no control

We tread stones
Release or hold
Just let go

As paces slow 
We tread over stones 
With no control 
With no control

We tread stones 
Release or hold
We would let go if we could let go

We tread stones  
Release or hold
Just let go

Now many years are gone
And where do we belong?
Can we find a way to revel in the days?

And face this rope
Suspended on stone
Release or hold
There's no control

 

Save Me from Satellites (Say You Will)

Say you will 
Say you'll try 
Save me from satellites 
Say you will 
Say you'll try 
Save me from satellites 

We're on the other side of the station glass 
Where wonder lasts 
We just sit on our hands as artificial objects pass 
They move too fast 
Intangible things fade and better things remain 
We should know that 
Floating now in space 
Slowly being replaced by satellites 

We'll just stumble on 
Two dreamers on the run 

And home is what we'll know 
Perfection, let it go 
'Cause home is where we float 
Where our days unfold 

Floating now in space 
Slowly being replaced by satellites 

We'll just stumble on 
Two dreamers on the run 
We'll find where we belong 
Returning from beyond 

And home is what we'll know 
Obsession comes and goes 
But home is where we float 
Though satellites still glow 

So allow ourselves a little imperfect rhyme 
Say you will find 
The secrets we've hidden 
Lost in daily strife 
Say you will try 
Pushing the waves toward the sand 
From where we can grow 
A brand new family branch 
Well I don't need the satellites, do you? 

And now I know we won't give up 
The simple things will be enough 
Two dreamers who've run too hard 
Are ready to restart 

And home is what we'll know 
I'm never letting go 
'Cause home is where we float 
Let our days unfold 

Say you will 
Say you'll try 
Say it is almost time 

Say you will 
Say you'll try 
Save me from satellites

 

I See You Through the Slideshows

Unmask this truth 
I see you through the slideshows 
The slides 

My life since you 
It holds onto the sideshows 
Oh why? 

When the truth is I don't know why 
The star lights shimmer suicide 
The truth, can you help me now? 
The truth leaves scars  
And they won't be found 
And they won't be found 

No baby blues 
The nights I choose are for light shows 
For lights 

And could I ask of you 
Should I come too 
Forgive me 
I don't have worth to lie, the lies 

When the truth is a burning light  
In my stars showing suicide 
The truth, it can't you help me now 
The truth leaves scars 
That I know you found 
I know found 

The truth leaves scars 
Did I stray too far? 
You could forgive me if I 
You could forgive me I do 

The truth leaves scars 
Did I stray too far? 
You could forgive me if I 
You could forgive me I do 

The truth is a dying light 
Softly shone in your eyes

 

The Safety of Sleep

Hope is counterfeit 
Inside the life you live 
I'm choosing to exist 
In sleep I can't resist 
A waking sun is calling out to you 
But peace is so much more behind my chamber door 

Why chase the harder ground? 
Sleep it all away 
Leave it for another day 
Sleep until it's safe 
Escape the world around 
Leave it for the underground 
Leave for sleep's soft surrounds 

Escape the world somehow 
Safe in sleep for now 

Fireworks and search lights fill the sky tonight 
The places where you hide are shining now too bright 
And poetry turns to paper cuts 

Why chase the harder ground? 
Sleep it all away 
Leave it for another day 
Sleep until it's safe 
Escape the world around 
Leave it for the underground 
Leave for sleep's soft surrounds 

And I will retreat, 
I will retreat to the safety of sleep 

I'm sleeping it away 
All I want to forget 
It's better on the edge of life 
I'm sleeping away 
All of the things I regret 
'Til my mind has reset 

I will retreat to the safety of sleep
