from the darkness of our world

2. Ship in the sand
woke up this morning
thought I got to change my life
Iím like a ship in the sand
just waiting for the tide

I got a lot of reasons
I'm glad to be alive
but always waking up alone
just makes me want to die
but always waking up alone
just makes me want to die

I may be lonely but Iím not stupid
I try to live with my mistakes
so I stay away to ease our pain
but Iíve never been very good at playing that game
no Iíve never been very good at anything

forget the past itís just an ugly backdrop
that stains everything we try to believe in
except the things that failed love brings
and donít project it on to anyone else
and donít project it on to anyone else


3. So slow
I turn of the light but leave the television talking
no, tonight I don't want to be alone
I try to close my eyes, but I'm afraid of the dark
I see you everywhere
I see you everywhere

but death comes so slow
when you're waiting
when you're waiting to be taken
and death comes so slow
when it's all you want
and it takes the ones that don't
and death comes so slow

I try to close my eyes, but I'm afraid of the dark
I see you everywhere
I see you everywhere


4. If only
hand in hand we spend the night
love comes easy by candlelight

we lie about our past to make each other believe
that this is the love that will last for eternity

if only, if only
if only, if only
if only I could believe that tomorrow
when I wake from my sleep
that you'll still be with me
oh my love
my love will always be


5. Bad man
you shine so bright you're blinding us all
sometimes I wish I could just switch you off
with god as my witness and hell in my head
Iíll never forget the things that you said
like Iím a bad man
and I should suffer day by day
well Iím a bad man
just like you said
just like you said
just like you said
just like you said


6. I left you
oh I left you
but I never really felt that far away
oh I left you
but it seemed to hurt us less than if I stay
yeah I left you
but you never really felt that far away
yeah I left you
but now it seems to hurt me more than if I stay

and if I will you closer
can you feel the presence of my thoughts
and you donít say much now
but what you say just tears
yeah tears the world apart
and are you waiting
are you waiting for the end before it begins
and are you waiting
are you waiting for the end

yeah I left you
but you never really felt that far away
oh I left you
but now it seems to hurt me more than if I stay
and yeah I left you
but how long will it take for you to forget this hate
yeah I left you
but is "I'm sorry" to simple a thing to say now

and if I will you closer
can you feel the presence
can you feel the presence of my thoughts
and you donít say much now
but what you say
yeah just
yeah just
yeah just tears the world apart
and are you waiting
yeah you're always waiting for the end
yeah before it begins
and you're always waiting
yeah you're waiting for the end
yeah you're always waiting


7. Jealous Guy
I was thinking of the past
and my heart was beating fast
I was shivering inside
I was shivering inside

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy

I was feeling insecure
that you might not love me any more
I began to lose control
I began to lose control

I was trying to catch your eyes
thought that you was trying to hide
I was swallowing my pain
I was swallowing my pain


8. The river song
I'm going to the river
to see if I can find
someone to protect me from
what I desire

I'm going to the river
to find someone
someone to protect me from
what I've become

I'm going to the river
I'm going to the river

I'm going to the river
to find someone
someone to protect me from
what IĎve become

I'm going to the river
to find someone
someone that can tell me where
the life has gone

I'm going to the river
I'm going to the river
