LYRICS

Hint 

 

A dark-haired girl is drifting into the night

Her hopes are bound within her tangled hair

She’s sounding the signal that no one can hear

She's turning the wheel and she's stalling in fear

You had her running right up to the edge

Imagine the waves lapping over her head

 

Give yourself to me and entrust your soul 

Oh let’s come together and each be whole

 

She holds out a handful of futile words

Her eyes betray that she’s frozen with fear

How did she slip into the ocean blue?

Was she seeking a life to lead away from you?

You had her running right up to the edge

Imagine the waves lapping over her head

 

So give yourself to me and entrust your soul 

Oh let’s come together and each be whole

 

Give yourself to me and entrust your soul 

Oh let’s come together and each be whole

Why Can’t I?

 

Drink this cup of wine

And I’ll try to say the grace 

Why does the Lord say that I’m good

Yet treat me with mistrust?

Still the lovers dance entwined 

In fealty and in love

Now the wine has turned to blood

And the cup has turned to dust

 

Why don’t I feel the love for you?

Why won’t you seek the truth of what we shared? 

Why can’t I be the one to care?

And why don’t you sense the emptiness inside? 

 

Wear this crown of thorns 

And I’ll try to praise the lord

He said I’d learn to love again

As I spoke the last refrain 

But while it sounded like the truth

It was only truth in name

Now the crown has turned to rust

And the book has turned to dust 

 

So I’ll run into the night

Past the silver sun

I know what I should find

So I’ll leave this world behind

With this little gun

And the contents of my mind

 

Why don’t I feel the love for you?

Why won’t you seek the truth of what we shared? 

Why can’t I be the one to care?

And why don’t you sense the emptiness inside?  

 

Why don’t I feel the love for you?

Why won’t you seek the truth of what we shared?

Why can’t I be the one to care?

And why don’t you sense the emptiness inside?  

City of Impunity

 

Go stand before your maker 

Before the streets are lined with blood

See the girls wade down by the water 

Who went and told them that they could?

 

You better run (run)

You better run (run)

You better run (run) 

You better run (run) 

 

Please come and visit our city  

Where we’ll always give you a hand

Just so long as you look right 

In the city of impunity

 

You don’t want to bear witness 

We own the judge and the executioner

I’d advise that you mind your own business 

As we'd hate to go for the jugular

 

You better run (run)

You better run (run)

You better run (run) 

You better run (run) 

 

Please come and visit our city 

Where we’ll always give you a hand

Just so long as you think right 

In the city of impunity

 

The theatre ceiling is swirling with fire

And the sweet aisle reeks with the scent of vanilla

We strive to keep them all starved of desire

On the screen there’s an angel and a killer

 

Please come and visit our city 

Where we’ll always give you a hand

Just so long as you talk right 

In the city of impunity

 

Please come and visit our city 

Where we’ll always give you a hand

Just so long as you act right 

In the city of impunity

 

You better run (run)

You better run (run)

You better run (run) 

You better run (run) 

Come Back Home 

 

How does it feel 

Being alone without a gun in your hand?

Look at me now

Take a breath and follow me up the hill, my friend 

Son please don't go

Just stay with me

 

This is no dream they are deceiving you

Close your eyes and you will see it too

They fly so high it makes me fear the sky 

Yet someday I'll be free 

 

Did you foresee

Being trapped in all the darkness of the world?

We're playing a game 

Assigned by all those folks upon the hill, my friend

Son come back home 

And set me free

 

This is no dream they are deceiving you

Close your eyes and you will see it too

They fly so high it makes me fear the sky 

Yet someday I'll be free 

 

How does it feel, 

Being alone without a gun in your hand? (My friend)

 

This is no dream they are deceiving you

Close your eyes and you will see it too

They fly so high it makes me fear the sky 

Yet someday I'll be free

The End of What We Knew

 

I felt it in the air and in the streets

An empty smile, she’s out of reach

Got to rise above and face it all alone

You run and run but no one’s home 

Sunlight fades as they move unseen

Always knowing where you’ve been 

 

This is the end of what we knew it to be

This is the start of something new

 

See their faces hanging in the trees

Their cries were smothered by the breeze

They never cared if we could feel any pain

Being the ones who lit the flame

Your eyes widen as the city burns 

Never knowing where to turn

 

This is the end of what we knew it be

This is the start of something new

This is the end of what we knew them to be

What have we done? It’s just begun

 

This is the end of what we knew it be

This is the start of something new

This is the end of what we knew them to be

What have we done, what have we done?
