Absolution

Intro

Apocalypse Please

Declare this an emergency
Come on and spread a sense of urgency
And pull us through
And pull us through

And this is the end
This is the end
Of the world

And it’s time we saw a miracle
Come on it’s time for something biblical
To pull us through
And pull us through

And this is the end
This is the end
Of the world

Proclaim eternal victory
Come on and change the course of history
And pull us through
And pull us through

And this is the end
This is the end
Of the world

Time Is Running Out

I think I’m drowning
Asphyxiated
I wanna break this spell
That you’ve created

You’re something beautiful
A contradiction
I wanna play the game
I want the friction

You will be the death of me
Yeah you will be the death of me

Bury it
I won’t let you bury it
I won’t let you smother it
I won’t let you murder it

Our time is running out
And our time is running out
You can’t push it underground
We can’t stop it screaming out

I wanted freedom
Bound and restricted
I tried to give you up
But I’m addicted

Now that you know I’m trapped
Sense of elation
You’d never dream of breaking this fixation
You will squeeze the life out of me

Bury it
I won’t let you bury it
I won’t let you smother it
I won’t let you murder it

And our time is running out
And our time is running out
You can’t push it underground
We can’t stop it screaming out
How did it come to this

houhouhou yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah
houhouhou yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah
houhouhou yeahyeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah you will suck the life out of me

Bury it
I won’t let you bury it
I won’t let you smother it
I won’t let you murder it

Our time is running out
And our time is running out
You can’t push it underground
You can’t stop it screaming out

And how did it come to this

houhouhou yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah
houhouhou yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah
houhouhou yeahyeah yeah yeah yeah

Sing for Absolution

Lips are turning blue
A kiss that can’t renew
I only dream of you
My beautiful

Tiptoe to your room
A starlight in the gloom
I only dream of you
And you never knew

Sing for absolution
I will be singing
And falling from your grace

There’s nowhere left to hide
In no one to confide
The truth burns deep inside
And will never die

Lips are turning blue
A kiss that can’t renew
I only dream of you
My beautiful

Sing for absolution
I will be singing
And falling from your grace

Sing for absolution
I will be singing
And falling from your grace

Our wrongs remain unrectified
And our souls won’t be exhumed

Stockholm Syndrome

I wont stand in your way
Let your hatred grow
And she’ll scream and she’ll shout and she’ll pray
And she had a name yeah she had a name

And i wont hold you back
Let your anger rise
And we’ll fly and we’ll fall and we’ll burn
No one will recall no one will recall

This is the last time i’ll abandon you
And this is the last time i’ll forget you
I wish i could

Look to the stars
Let hope burn in your eyes
And we’ll love and we’ll hate and we’ll die
All to no avail all to no avail

This is the last time i’ll abandon you
And this is the last time ill forget you
I wish i could

This is the last time i’ll abandon you
And this is the last time i’ll forget you
I wish i could
I wish i could

Falling Away With You

I can’t remember when it was good
Moments of happiness elude
Maybe I just misunderstood
All of the love we left behind
Watching our flash backs intertwine
Memories I will never find
So i’ll love whatever you become
Forget the reckless thing we ‘ve done
I think our lives have just begun
I think our lives have just begun

And I’ll feel my world crumbling
I feel my life crumbling
I feel my soul crumbling away
And falling away
Falling away with you

Staying awake to chase a dream
Tasting the air you’re breathing in
I know I won’t forget a thing
Promise to hold you close and pray
Watching the fantasies decay
Nothing will ever stay the same
And all of the love we threw away
And all of the hopes we’ve cherished fade
Making the same mistakes again
Making the same mistakes again

And I’ll feel my world crumbling
I feel my life crumbling
I feel my soul crumbling away
And falling away
Falling away with you

All of the love we left behind
Watching our flash backs intertwine
Memories I will never find
Memories I will never find

Interlude

Hysteria

It’s bugging me
Grating me
And twisting me around

Yeah I’m endlessly
Caving in
And turning inside out

’cause I want it now
I want it now
Give me your heart and your soul
And I’m breaking out
I’m breaking out
Last chance to lose control

Yeah it’s holding me
Morphing me
And forcing me to strive

To be endlessly
Cold within
And dreaming I’m alive

’cause I want it now
I want it now
Give me your heart and your soul
I’m not breaking down
I’m breaking out
Last chance to lose control

And I want you now
I want you now
I feel my heart implode
And I’m breaking out
Escaping now
Feeling my faith erode

Blackout

Don’t kid yourself
And don’t fool yourself
This love’s too good, to last
And I’m too old to dream, yeah…

Don’t grow up too fast
And don’t embrace the past
This life’s too good to last
And I’m too young to care, yeah…

Don’t kid yourself
And don’t fool yourself
This life could be the last
And we’re too young to see

Butterflies and Hurricanes

Change,
Everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called
Fights and battles have begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

Best,
You’ve got to be the best
You’ve got to change the world
And use this chance to be heard
Your time is now

Change,
Everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called
Fights and battles ‘ve begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

Best,
You’ve got to be the best
You’ve got to change the world
And use this chance to be heard
Your time is now

Don’t,
Let yourself down
And don’t let yourself go
Your last chance has arrived

Best,
You’ve got to be the best
You’ve got to change the world
And use this chance to be heard
Your time is now

The Small Print

Take,
Take all you need
And I’ll compensate your greed
With broken hearts

Sell,
And I’ll sell your memories
For fifteen pounds per year
But just the good days

Say,
It’ll make you insane
And it’s bending the truth
You’re to blame
For all the life that you’re losing
You watch this space
But I’m going all the way
And be my slave to the grave
I’m a priest god never paid

Hope,
And I hope you’ve seen the light
’cause no-one really cares
They’re just pretending

Sell,
And I’ll sell your memories
For fifteen pounds per year
But you can keep the bad days

Say,
It’ll make you insane
And I’m bending the truth
You’re to blame
For all the life that you’re losing
You watch this space
But I’m going all the way
And be my slave to the grave
I’m a priest god never paid

Say,
It’ll make you insane
And I’m bending the truth
You’re to blame
For all the life that you’re losing
You watch this space
And I’m going all the way
And be my slave to the grave
I’m a priest god never paid

Endlessly

There’s part in me you’ll never know
The only thing I’ll never show

Hopelessly I’ll love you endlessly
Hopelessly I’ll give you everything
But I won’t give you up
I won’t let you down
And I won’t leave you falling
If the moment ever comes

It’s plain to see it’s trying to speak
Cherished dreams forever asleep
Hopelessly I’ll love you endlessly
Hopelessly I’ll give you everything
But I won’t give you up
I won’t let you down
And I won’t leave you falling
If the moment ever comes

Hopelessly I’ll love you endlessly
Hopelessly I’ll give you everything
But I won’t give you up
I won’t let you down
And I won’t leave you falling
But the moment never comes

Thoughts of Dying Atheist

Eerie whispers
Trapped beneath my pillow
You won’t let me see
Your memories

And I know you’re in this room
I’m sure I heard you sigh
Floating in between
Where our worlds collide

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

Yeah yeah yeah ….

And I know the moment’s near
And there’s nothing we can do
Look through a faithless eye
Are you afraid to die?

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

Yeah yeah yeah ….

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

Yeah yeah yeah ….

Ruled by Secrecy

Repress and restrain
Steal the pressure and the pain
Wash the blood off your hands
This time she won’t understand

Change in the air
And they’ll hide everywhere
And no one knows who’s in control

You’re working so hard
And you’re never in charge
Your death creates success
Rebuild and suppress

Change in the air
And they’ll hide everywhere
And no one knows who’s in control

Change in the air
And they’ll hide everywhere
And no one knows who’s in control

Fury

You’re so happy now
Burning a candle at both ends
Your self-loving soothes
And softens the blows you’ve invented

Breathe in deep, and cleanse away our sins
And we’ll pray that there’s no God
To punish us and make a fuss

Crack’s healing up
Future soul forgive this mess
You wait twenty years
And wind up alone, demented

Breathe in deep, and cleanse away our sins
And we’ll pray that there’s no God
To punish us and make a fuss
