The Best Years

Old Lies For Young Lives

I'm tired, I'm getting old,
This dust is what becomes of my bones.
Under the cracks in our skin.
Under the bags dragging down our eyes.

We're hollow, and growing cold.
This life is what became of our souls.
Under the weight of our guilt, the hollow skulls that we hold.

Growing up, breaking down, falling to pieces. (Anything, Everything)
Never stop, breaking down, I cannot take this. (Falling)

Never stop, growing old,
The snakes surround me, from the inside out we,
Never stop, moving on.
They crawl through the holes of the hollow skulls.

Love what you hold,
Closing in, feel their scales on your skin.
Never tire, being told,
Make the most of the best years before you turn cold.

Eleven Eyes

Old Lies For Young Lives

Born and raised in these hollow days.

I'm sick, I'm tired.
Empty skulls run this place.
The world isn't working anymore,
The world isn't working at all.

Born and raised in these hollow days,
Empty skulls, black holes, white eyes, run this place.

Close your eyes, just pretend that I'm your friend.
Look out for yourself because there is no-one else.

Your life must be so fucking easy,
Living with your (eyes (closed) minds) never stop believing,
What they see through their empty skulls.


Give me something real,
Find me, somebody who feels
Different

I'm not the same,
I pray to God,
I pray to anyone,
I don't believe it anyway.

March 1964

Old Lies For Young Lives

Mother, Father,
Who could I have been?
Mother, Father,
What could I have done?

Let's start a revolution,
Build our own wall.
Commit the crime of a century,
Because I want it all.

Mother, Father,
Build my own wall.
I wanna start a revolution,
Because I want it all.

Who could I have been?
What could I have done?
This is the March of 1964,
I could have been so much more.

I was unlucky to be born,
A part of the generation un-dead.
And if I could turn back time, I would rewrite these lines for a meaning in my mind instead.

The Noble Lie

Old Lies For Young Lives

The boys, the girls,
They're just playing in the playgrounds.
Not a care in the world,
There's blood on our hands.

What would you do?
For the disappointed youth.
What would you do?
Tell them truth.

What would you say,
When the children ask you,
'Why do we pray,
Is there nothing else we can do?'

Myth of a nation, illusion of relations.
Every time a childhood dies,
You tell The Noble Lie.

Stable societies,
Have gone awry.
An adult born every time,
You tell The Noble Lie.

Sweet dreams darling, having fun.
Just remember what we have done.
The disappointment hangs in the air,
The storm is coming, dear.

Windowless

Old Lies For Young Lives

Trapped inside a plain white room,
A cold noose, a block of ice.
He better move 'cause it will melt,
That fucked up kid, was really nice.

Windowless and feeling blue,
There's nothing left for him to do.
He better move or his mind will melt,
That fucked up kid, was so kind too.

It's heating up, the time is low.
That block of ice, is half its height.
It's now or never, the time is right,
That fucked up kid, left a fucked up note.

And when I found him I read every word,
The reasons why he had left this empty world.
And when I'm slowly losing my mind,
I just remember the last two lines.

Hang me,
Hang here,
Dear world,
Blame yourself.

Blue lips,
White eyes,
His death hangs over all our lives.

The noose is tight.
Something's not right.

Hang me,
Hang here,
Dear world,
Hang yourself.

In Transit

Old Lies For Young Lives

Come the morning I'll be married to death,
And fear will be my best man.
Come the morning I'll be dragged down the aisle,
The alter is old age, and envy is my child.

If we're born for only stories to tell,
Why do you live inside a hell?
All that's left at the end of your rope,
A noose to hang your dreams and hope.

Death, (close in year by year)
Disaster, (now I have no fear)
Life, (is my sadness)
Ever after.

I don't want to be buried with guilt,
But I want to live with free will.
I'm married to death,
And my mistress is disaster


Death, married me.
I'll be the best man I can be.
Disaster, followed me.
And I can hardly breathe.

Stray Rats

Old Lies For Young Lives

Stray rats, stay young, never stop.

Wasting minds,
Wasting time,
Wasting youth,
Wasting lives.

Wasting effort,
Wasting today,
Wasting patience,
Wasting away.

Black eyes, can't sleep.
White lies, can't keep.
Green eyes, I can't stand to see.

Stray rats never look back.

Wake Up, Fall Asleep

Old Lies For Young Lives

I cant get any sleep,
Im pulling out my hair.
It was grey, now its gone,
It doesnt mean it wasnt there.

I'm scared of failure, scared of success,
Living life with a noose around my neck.

Weave the rope, with anxiety and fear.
Drown all hope in a swimming pool, it's locked away for years.

It may seem like the start of your day,
But its the end of mine.

I'm not sleeping here tonight,
I'll lie here until the morning light.

And I wake up, just to fall asleep.
I wake up, wake up.

Forth / Here

Old Lies For Young Lives

A new page,
A new day.
Drained, down to my last eyes,
But it still doesnt go away,
(What am I doing here?)
But it still doesn't go away,
(Who am I pleasing here?)

Tortured souls from day one.
If this world is right then Im his bastard son.
Pull out my lungs look behind my eyes,
Searching for something to fill the void.

Searching for something inside of me,
Separating from whats outside of me.
Hoping that one of these days,
Ill find out how to feel that way.

And this is everything,
Its not meant to be.
Growing up is getting old to me.

What use is time with no motivation?
What use is life with no inspiration?
Is death the only thing that drives us on?
This growing up is getting older, and older.

These Streets

These Streets / Gold Coast

There is nothing to keep me here
The only reason is dragging me under
Drowned by all my insecurities
I know you try to understand
(understand)

As I grow apart from all that Ive ever know
Retracing lines, reliving lies
Searching for something more, there must be something more
Retracing lines, Im reliving lies

The comfort and security
Hides fear and broken dreams
In a broken town, where nothing changes
Life passes by on the wind
And home is where you lay your head
(Lay your head)

I never knew these streets so cold
I never knew that I could be so cold

As I grow apart from all that Ive ever know
Retracing lines, reliving lies
Searching for something more, there must be something more
Retracing lines, Im reliving lies

Relive lies
Relive lies

Gold Coast

These Streets / Gold Coast

Forever in chains
Tied down, breaking up
I long to get away
But these thoughts of home, they never leave me

The world sees my heart, when I wear it on my sleeve
Here I am surrounded
By the expanse of being alone
Here I am

Miles from home, you find yourself
Miles from home, you find a reason

While you feel free, tied to what you love
I keep my feet on the floor
Ive learnt lifes lesson
That the higher you climb the further you fall
I fell apart, now start again
How you rebuild is who you are

Miles from home, you find yourself
Miles from home, you find a reason

If I had nothing to learn, thered be no reason to breathe
If I had nothing to lose, thered be no weakness in me

We Live Alone ...

Dead Ends

Time won’t wait for me
The truth is all I see
Forever is a lie
We live alone and that’s how we die

Eye For An Eye

Dead Ends

Reap what you sew
Now its harvest season
Take back your words
I would change a moment
Clock hands
I'll turn them back
Hope of relief
Is history

This is a confession
This is a confession
This is a confession to my self

This smile a mask
Seconds of sleep
I'll close my eyes
So i cant hear or see you

Don't tell me life hangs on
The beating of a heart
I see your face everyday
Don't tell me life is nothing
Don't tell me life hangs on
The beating of a heart
I see your face everyday
Don't tell me life is nothing more

The air i gasp
Keep my head above
These waves that crash
Around my legs of stone

This is, this is, this is a confession

Don't tell me life hangs on
The beating of a heart
I see your face everyday
Don't tell me life is nothing
Don't tell me life hangs on
The beating of a heart
I see your face everyday
Don't tell me life is nothing more

Eye for an eye
Will make me blind

I put my life in these words i scream
I put my heart in this ink and bleed
I hope you hear my voice and know
That i mean every fucking word

Eye for an eye
Will make me blind

Oceans

Dead Ends

I’ll make amends for every mistake of life
If you make amends for every breath you took
Open my lungs, and finish what you started
Open my heart, and replace what you stole

Remember my name, remember my face
Remember where we’ve been
In the clear light of day
Your mind washes like the tides

I’ll lead you down a well worn path, walk for days
Is there a light at the end of the road?
Rewrite my lines on the face of the sun
I’ll hang them there for the world to see

Open you eyes, and witness the destruction
Open your ears, and hear what you’ve become

Is this where life begins
Find out who you really are

Remember my name, remember my face
Remember where we’ve been
In the clear light of day
Your mind washes like the tides

Remember (remember my name)
Remember (remember my face)
Remember (where we’ve been)

Open you eyes, and witness the destruction
Open your ears, and hear what you’ve become

Letting Go

Dead Ends

Let go of everything
You used to hold
Dare to regret
And dare to live

When you look and see
You haven’t lived a single day
It brings you lower than you know
Moving mountains for you, mountains moving for me

How small we are
Next to this glorious dawn

I hope you realise

I hope you realise
That you meant everything
I’d smile to see you dig your grave
You’re fucking dead to me

The Lost And Alone

Dead Ends

We are, we are
The lost and alone
We are, we are
Never fucking going home

A test of will
A lesson learnt
I know there must be
More than this

Lungs collapse
Under the weight
Cries fall
On deafened ears

My cries fall on deafened ears

We are, we are
The lost and alone
We are, we are
Never going home

We are, we are
The lost and alone
We are, we are
Never fucking going home

Never fucking going home

Forget

Dead Ends

Faded photographs keep me from sleep
I see the stories in my minds eye

Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?

The sun will rise
And the time will pass
And I’ll forget you
I will forget you

Days turn to months and months turn to years
As I search to find meaning

I had all the time in the world
And I lost myself
You had all the space in the world
And you found yourself

The sun will rise
And the time will pass
And I’ll forget you
I will forget you

Beneath The Skin

Dead Ends

There’s good in this world
And I’ll find it
Just not in you
Just not in you

There’s beauty that’s more than skin deep
And I’ll find it
Just not in you
Just not in you

Dead Ends

Dead Ends

I sit back and I sit alone
And watch you change with the seasons
You find yourself above it all
You can’t drown when the rivers run dry

Where can you turn
When there’s nowhere to turn
The cold truth of who you really are
I find it drags me deeper

I sit back and I sit alone
And watch you change with the seasons
You find yourself above it all
You can’t drown when the rivers run dry

The people we used to be
Are dead to you and me
The people we used to be
Are dead ends
Are dead ends

We are dead ends
And that’s all we’ll ever be

Endings

Dead Ends

Spiteful and filled with regret
Does that sound familiar to you?
Gonna go where no one knows my name
And bury my head in the sand

My love and hate now feels all the same
But at least I know I’m alive
In the eyes of your god I am not unique
And you’re not strong

Wash the blood from your hands
I hope you try to forget
I don’t cross your mind
Half as much as you do

I’ll bury my head
In the sand

My love and hate now feels all the same
But at least I know I’m alive
In the eyes of your god I am not unique
And you’re not strong

You’re not as strong as you think you are

... And That's How We Die

Dead Ends

We live alone and that’s how we die

If I’m honest with myself, I was fighting for my life
These things I cast in stone
They are weathered
They are broken
