Lyrics: ‘Gatsby Versus Love’

Lyrics: ‘Gatsby Versus Love’

We are the men in black
Talking of Burroughs and Kerouac.
We keep it up through a blank façade
“Have you read the Marquis De Sade?”

Nothing as dull as faux intelligencia
Take your De Quincey and get away with ya.
Yes, you’re clever but we sail above
As we unravel the secrets of love
The secrets of love.

We sit in libraries
Converse in solemn hushed morbid tones.
From Fitzgerald to Dante and Plath
We seek the cleverest 3 book loans.

Nothing as dull as faux intelligencia
Take your De Quincey and get away with ya.
Yes, you’re clever but we sail above
As we unravel the secrets of love
The secrets of love.

No great novels
Just emotion and heart
Sometimes love makes for beautiful art.
Makes for beautiful art.

LYRICS: ‘How Far Will You Come Out And Save Me?’

LYRICS: ‘How Far Will You Come Out And Save Me?’

There is no way to kill the past
I hope the hurt wont last
I never meant to hurt you
There is no way just to erase.
I know you killed so
I owe you more than can come.
Sometimes the world spins out
Away from the epicentre
Sometimes the turn is wrong
There’s nothing that can tell you.
I just hope you know I care
You’re not a substitute
But all that I wish was there.
When I make the jukebox choices
It’s ‘Lucky’ for you.
It’s ‘Lucky’ for you.
I built a wall but there’s a door
It’s yours to open if you care
I’ll sit and dream and sigh and wait
Until the day that you are there.
Please be there.
Please be there.
Please be there.

LYRICS: ‘The Future (Optional)’

LYRICS: ‘The Future (Optional)’

Come to my house tonight
We’ll play songs and kiss
And disappear, alright?
Outside will go away
Hesitate and wave goodbye
So long yesterday.
Click yourself forward with me
The future’s ours to write,
You see?
I can’t imagine it alone
Waiting for the answerphone
To hear your dulcet tones.
Come back the fire burns
The embers, remember?
The world watches you
Behind your eyes I see the future
Laying there as you stroke my hair
A diet coke and a happy stare.
That’s the future.
That’s the future.

LYRICS: ‘Just Take Me On’

LYRICS: ‘Just Take Me On’

Now’s the time to show your face
Erase the past and leave this place
Everything waits now for you
If it’s what you want to do.

Am I your future?
Am I your fate?
Is it too early?
Is it too late?

Your shadow paints my wall
Helps me leap and stand up tall
Sometimes I can never be
Without you here next to me.

Am I your future?
Am I your fate?
Is it too early?
Is it too late?

Just take all that you know
Come with me and start the show.

Am I your future?
Am I your fate?
Is it too early?
Is it too late?

I’m here for you, just take me on.
I’m here for you, just take me on.

LYRICS: ‘I Take Crumbs, They Steal Bakeries’

LYRICS: ‘I Take Crumbs, They Steal Bakeries’

The vial is empty
My body a hollow receptacle of truth.
A corpse going over Niagara
Ashes in the mouth, ashes in the mouth.
I can’t breath, I can’t sleep
I can’t see for the eclipse in front of my heart,
It yearns for you, it breaks for you.

The past just a crimson slice from a failed suicde
There’s nowhere left to hide
The chasm of hopelessness grows wide.
But don’t blame me, please don’t blame me,
I take crumbs, they steal bakeries.
I take crumbs, they steal bakeries.

Kiss yesterday with vodka breath
Fucked up without being special
Nothing unique but these scars and my brain
A DJ will always lay quicker than an intellectual
They want sport and superficiality
Not Salinger and Scott.
Not Salinger and Scott.

The past just a crimson slice from a failed suicde
There’s nowhere left to hide
The chasm of hopelessness grows wide.
But don’t blame me, please don’t blame me,
I take crumbs, they steal bakeries.
I take crumbs, they steal bakeries.

Time ticks forwards towards death’s cruel embrace.
Wherever you’re going,
You’re going alone, cowboy
You’re going alone, cowboy.

The past just a crimson slice from a failed suicde
There’s nowhere left to hide
The chasm of hopelessness grows wide.
But don’t blame me, please don’t blame me,
I take crumbs, they steal bakeries.
I take crumbs, they steal bakeries.

One fine day you’ll want me
One fine day you’ll want me
One fine day you’ll want me
…And I’ll be gone.

LYRICS: ‘The Darkness, Reality’

LYRICS: ‘The Darkness, Reality’

She stands alone inside a metal machine
Neon draping over her like crystalline sunshine.
No further course to follow, all signs lead to nothing
All she needs is love’s sweet rescue.
All she needs is love’s sweet rescue.

It is odd that the heart is an organ that repairs itself
She could not think now of such sweet redemption.
A shallow skeletal poisonous package
All she needs is love’s sweet rescue.
All she needs is love’s sweet rescue.

A swallow choking in the gas
A fallen fallow fawn in the forest
A broken choking buzzing tone
Lifeline horizontal
Lifeline horizontal.
The love was a dream
The darkness, reality.
The darkness, reality.
The darkness, reality.
The darkness, reality.
