Coming up fast Atlas is buckling down From the new weight of the world A mother load enemy Fighting gravity itself You and I...dare to try... Out of control Harness the heavy feel-ling I have left long ago I feel eighteen hundred strong Fighting gravity itself You and I...dare to try... There's no wonder There's no mystery Euphoria, is it my Mecca Euphoria, the scene is blown Coming up short Atlas is falling down From the new weight of the world A mother load enemy Fighting gravity itself You and I...dare to try... There's no wonder There's no mystery Euphoria, is it my Mecca Euphoria, the scene is blown You and I...dare to try...

I'm feeling you, you don't feel me Loving's easy when you don't see I'm no phantom Scatter them out Settle them down These itchy feeling of excess Now what if I were to tell you blow by blow? It's a lack of conscience I know too well to know Somewhere outside, far from myself On a plate glass window There's a bit of me yet It's no phantom. Tapping into you lets me see What part of you is inside me What if I were a bullet in your gun? With nothing stopping you...you better run. Somewhere outside, far from myself On a plate glass window There's a bit of me yet It's no phantom.

I can see where we'll go from here Thrown down, pent up words we could not say You come. You come to me. I'm holding up your Oppenheimer eyes I didn't want to let you down Roots lain to bare So deep...so wide...so sexual... From the movement There's no answer, only the searching And we even let that slip away You come. You come to me. I'm holding up your Oppenheimer eyes I didn't want to let you down Roots lain to bare So deep...so wide...so sexual... From the movement

Peacefully released Peacefully released into your soul Time is to be felt, not held Death and destruction, kills itself.

I won't be there still I hold on to the golden image A residue that can be so tragic It will not undo. Tomorrow will not be the one that's gonna save me Tomorrow won't be the one that'll be my hero Building a way back Back to the beginning seldom will work Don't look back on a few bright lines It's all here for you. Tomorrow won't be the one that's gonna save me Tomorrow won't be the one that'll be my hero Tomorrow's the opium for the static hopeful I won't be there still. Sometimes I can't put asunder yesterday Forgetting where it is can be so tragic It's all in the now.

The majestic white, white sheets Slowly fold Nothing is lost Except the gift we gave to ourselves Like a shadow on the ground That's fading darker without a sound Gotta watch out for the sucker punch. We are sons and daughters of the "no solution". Here lies the love, kicking... Against all resistance, I hope this flies But I've got memories in my eyes Walk on...invisible. Throwing back and few, I wait... With might and main, I'll wait for you, but... I gotta watch out for the sucker punch.

Blind me in my ghostly lust of the Flickering nova lighted dust Become my thoughts, become my blood Into the night, below and above You can only go to places that you let in Losing control is how we begin Finding solace deep in the mystery Deep in the mystery I beat you my heart in the silver sea Filling in the space, by filling the time Goes beyond our depth and beyond our minds I twist and turn through the memories That lie like kisses from the Siren Furies Is it too late, or is it too soon? A codex of the dead, of the rune Intangible fruits, that we descend Shattering the truths, and waking the dead Solace in the deep mystery Deep in the mystery

Acrophobia We can hold the line Or we can let it go Leaping in a single bound Forty stories high I'm coming in like a boomerang Yea, I'm coming out of this death spin Say goodbye to the screaming Angelic voices Calm yourself Feeling life impact is arching back and letting go Hold on to nothing Open your eyes to hitting bottom Open yourself to the possibilities Open up to the king-size certainty Hold on to nothing Calm yourself

I return to hear the thrushes to sing They take me anywhere out of this world More than one sun burns Take wrapper off it's better that way Anywhere out of this world To be or become? Unexplainable, unobtainable love Old enough to forget, but young enough to want to remember Anywhere out of this world I'll begin I'll begin to begin again Anywhere out of this world Take me anywhere out of this world.
