Lyrics

Supercrush

So the time is right, so tell me if you wanna?
You should change it if you’re gonna
But I don’t really know how… I’ve already tried…
INVOLVE.

I don’t want to save my soul now
I don’t want to lose control
And even if it takes a lifetime to learn
I’ll learn.

Don’t fall in line… If you’re thinking that you’re gonna…
You should maybe think about a reason in your own mind…
You’ve already gone!
EVOLVE.

I don’t wanna save my soul now
I just wanna lose control
And even if it takes a lifetime to learn
I’ll learn… I’ll learn…
WE LEARN

Here now, see friends,
Hear our defense,
Heroes’ time gone by.

Here’s our descent,
Hero’s defense,
Heroes left you to die

I don’t wanna save my soul now
I don’t wanna lose control
So even if it takes our lifetime to learn…
I’ll learn…I’ll learn…
WE ALL LEARN!

So we
Lift you up to be turned
So high

Numbered

Ah, we are numbered, we are numb, we are not alone
Ah, we are numbered, we are numb, we are numb…

All the world’s been waiting for a photograph.
All the time we’ve waited for a sign.
It’ll soon be over, All we want is honesty.
It’ll soon be over, All we’ve got is time.

Ah, we are numbered, we are numb, we are not alone
Ah, we are numbered, we are numb, we are numb…

So, we search for home.
Only God knows God.
I’m alright to fly!
Only we both know we never once were right…
But we tried.

SING IT!

Ah, we are numbered, we are numb, we are not alone
Ah, we are numbered, we are numb, we are not alone

SING IT TO ME!

Why must we die?
Let us be one.

Ah
We are numbered
We are numb
We are not alone

Deadhead

You are a sun Goddess
Will you save me?
Hooray for you.
Hooray.
Now the rain it comes, the rain it blurs the grey line
…the grey line…the Greyhound home
You are so vicious (Hurt me, I can take it)
Cause it’s all in the heat of the moment,
It’s all in the pain
Sonar, sonar again…
It’s on again, (got no wings…gossamer wings…) …on again…
You are a sun Goddess!!!
Will you save me? …babe…babe…babe…
Cause it’s all in the heat of the moment
It’s all in the pain!!!
So give in to the heat of the moment
Give in to the pain!!!

Seventh Wave

Running away, running away
Running away forever
It was her only chance of finding home
Running away, running away
Running away together…
With only thoughts of finding home

I’ll wait for the ocean to rise up
And meet me as it rose up before
(I’ll know the time)
I’ll wait for the ocean to rise up
And greet me as it rose up before
(I’ll know the year)

Because you’re never alone
…Even when you’re alone
You’re never alone…
Watch the seventh wave

Running away, running away
Running into the weather
With only thoughts of finding home
Running away, running away
Running away forever
I realize I’m on my own

On my way pass it on
On my way pass it on

I’ll wait for the ocean to rise up
And meet me as it rose up before
(I’ll know the time)
I’ll wait for the ocean to rise up
And greet me as it rose up before

We’re never alone
Even when you’re alone
We’re never alone… watch the ocean

Life

My life is all that I’ve known
And it’s all that keeps me here
My time is all that I own
So I won’t let it slip away…

How long can this life go on
Who we are what we are…
I’ll see you on the other side

Wouldn’t you rather live it on your own
Even when it bends you over
So when it comes time to go home
You don’t let them fade away…

How long can this all go on?
How long till it’s over?
And how long till it all comes down?
…And how bad do we need a new reminder?
