Lyrics

Burning Star
If no one gave you the tools to make a real life
They delivered most of the parts,
But you couldn’t get it right
If your mind is blind to laws you knew wouldn’t last
If the boredom of trivial roads lead to a crash

Somewhere up above the clouds
Among a million prayers
Flies a little hope of mine
If someone out there cares

Back on earth, I see it here
It shines its endless light
Alone like us in empty space;
The burning star of life

There are dreams on earth
You need three lives to fulfill
And there are lives you’ve lived ’till the end
By standing still
We’ve got too many lives at either end of a knife
We’ve had plenty of lives cut short
By what we carry inside..

Tell me something I don’t know
Maybe I’ve lived too long
I’ve got a bad case of I told you so
And it’s hard to hold my tongue

Back on earth, I see it here
It shines its endless light
Alone like us in empty space;
The burning star
The burning star
The burning star of life
A Prayer For The Loud
Step into the church of blues
Yeah, where every note is true
We’ve got a noise to lose your pain in
A place to dream away in
After all that you’ve been through

Yeah leave your troubles by the door
And blessed be the chords
We all know that heaven’s waiting
Are you ready for your amen?
Cuz we’re all kings and fools
In everything we do
Inside the church of blues..

We’ve got a prayer for the loud
We’ve got a prayer for the living
We’ve got a prayer for the crowd
We’ve got a prayer for the giving

It’s what the church of blues is about
Yeah we’ve got love and we’ve got it loud
See it’s never growing old
Bless your ears and soul
We’re living rocknroll

I’ll give a sermon you can trust
It’s about a burning bush of lust
Yeah the gift of life is shown
Your soul is still your own
We get to pick our truth
In everything we do
Inside the church of blues

We’ve got a prayer for the loud
We’ve got a prayer for the living
We’ve got a prayer for the crowd
We’ve got a prayer for the giving
We’ve got a prayer for the fans
We’ve got a prayer for the dreamers
We’ve got a prayer for the band
We’ve got a prayer for the screamers

It’s what the church of blues is about
We’ve got a prayer for the loud
Nothing Ever Changes
There’s a war behind them after they’re gone
And who is the guilty; everyone and none
But you can’t just throw those bombs and move on...

There’s rivers of blood in a land with no rain
If this is the answer - don’t ask me again
You might just need those legs again my friend...

Rise and shine though the sunlight is filthy
Dogs bark and killing is easy
The new world survives behind fences
The old man says nothing ever changes
Nothing ever changes....

There’s angels around - but I can’t hear ’em talk
Trying to tell me; am I human or not?
But I won’t be afraid when the volume’s turned up...

Hold your breath - the enemy’s out there...
The air is still; you’re caught in the crosshairs...

Nothing ever changes...
The Sky Is Made Of Blues
You followed rules unintended
Yeah stood in line and lost your senses
What did you do to be accepted

It’s coming up the things that keep you down
Rears its head, makes a sound
You know it’s time to turn around

Yeah, the trick is just to hangon ’till tomorrow
A dreamless sleep is all you’re going to lose
Sunshine’s always best to solve your troubles
At night you know, the sky is made of blues...
The sky is made of blues...

Close your eyes, now it’s your turn to see
You move in truth, you move in peace
You’re going to stay, you don’t wanna leave
You know you’re here, yeah you know you’re free...
The Real Me
Deep down you know
You know it’s like this
Someone has to stay poor
For you to get rich
Yeah deep down you know
You know how it goes
If you want control
Someone else has to let it go...

Bless my crazy heart cuz that’s the real me
Back to love cuz I did my share of hurt
I’m someone’s salvation and someone’s burden
But they know me
Staying alive, I just know it has to be earned...

You’re looking for peace
But with a loaded gun
Now the silence is roaring
And there’s a war in everyone
You’re looking for time
Cuz you just threw it away
I’m gonna stack up the hours
I’m gonna blow you away....

Now you’re looking to judge
And call it a point of view
We’re all connected
You’ll end up hurting too
I will take what’s mine
What’s making me be me
I’m gonna put on a saddle
And ride until I’m free
No Doubt About It
I wanna give it my blood
I'm gonna live my dream
But like the tail of a tornado
I never know where it leads...

(chorus)
Let there be no doubt about it
Paradise is too far to go
Let there be no doubt about it
It's close enough for rocknroll

Yeah you could sell your soul
But you know they’ll keep on charging
If hell is where you go
I say you just keep on walking

No doubt about it
We know all that glitters ain’t gold
Let there be no doubt about it
We’re close enough for rocknroll

(downpart)
Sometimes it feels like paradise has been
Postponed
Don’t worry
We’re close enough for rnr

C-part
Paradise is too far to go
We’re close enough for rnr
We know all that glitters ain’t gold
But it’s close enough for rnr
A Drug For The Heart
Love is a drug for the heart
We try it once and we're caught
You said love was a flame
And you won't get burned again

But maybe love is like the wind
It won’t care where you’ve been
All you need is to try
And you’ll fly

(chorus)
I wanna know love now
Because I can’t live without
And for the life of me I’ll keep trying
To find a way to your heart
And that’s where I’ll start…

Maybe love’s like a bridge
But stopped halfway is what I did
Afraid of the opposite shore
And you wanted more

Maybe love is like a lake
The deeper and darker it gets
The more you lose of yourself
I’m afraid

When I'm watching from afar it seems so easy
Then I get up close, and words just fail me
’Cause love slips away, when you tell it to stay
Musical Chairs
You know you need to be somewhere,
Trying to grow old as fast you can
Try to get to know the world
And how a little girl becomes a man

And you’re learning to watch
And you’re watching to learn
And you look and you touch
And you hope for your turn

Waiting for the world to come around….

Everybody tries to make a move
Just before the traffic lights turns blue
Yeah it’s clear; you’ve got no idea
and then the music stops and you’re without a chair…..

Running round the face of earth
Looking for a healthy dream to follow
Hanging on to life, there ain’t no wisdom
We only got tomorrow…
Time Is A Train
Time is a train
And when it’s moving slow
It takes you where you need to be
Time is a train
And where you wanna go
It's living inside like a dream

I tell you time is a train...
Yeah we’re moving again

Yesterday’s gone
And tomorrow won’t come
The past and the future’s the same
Nothing’s remembered
It’s fading way
But we’re still moving my friend
I tell you time is a train…
And we’re moving again
Yeah time is a train
Yeah we’re moving again

I know a guy
He’s in a window seat
Afraid that he’s been stuck in reverse
He just forgot
We ride the same train
Same time, same planet, same curse
Happy Days In Hell
What doesn’t kill you makes you interesting
So I’ll tell you a tale from the edge
How I got up, but more on how I fell
I got bored when we talked like adults
And I longed for the secrets of life
How I forgot my mother’s pulse
And lost the light in my eyes
And how I saw the truth ain’t supposed to be nice

For all those happy days in Hell
Meet the man who met himself
From the lows I rose
From the highs I fell
All those happy days in Hell…

I never claimed to be innocent
I lay in the bed I made
What is lost when innocence is betrayed…
Here is my heart and here are my lies
I’ll give you all I’ve been taught
From every star I picked from the sky
To the dark I carry inside...
To let you know that the truth ain’t supposed to be nice...
If The World Just
You say you want silence
But no man’s an island
You know it takes all kinds
To make up a world
And you don’t want trouble
But you’re making it double
When you’re afraid to get hurt

You say you want patience
'Cause everything’s changing
And no one’s waiting
For yesterday’s news...
Your one chance of winning
Was if the world stopped spinning
Like all dreamers do...

If the world just made another mistake
Because it didn’t read your mind
And if the world just made another heart break
By leaving you behind
It’s because you live inside of your head
All the time…

Then someone mentions
Hey share your intentions
But what everyone else thinks
You don’t wanna know
Life’s a relation
Whatever you’re facing
You wanna do it alone

If you could save a life
With what you know…
If the life you saved
Would be your own…
Or you stayed forever in that state
A little slow a little late
