RUBICON
take one chance
to run
you want to
never can they catch us
they’ll pull us back
if we don’t make it
it’s beginning to seem
there are no rules
no way to now return
my rubicon
to a place called home
no way to return
you’ll be my phantom
everlasting we can become
love can become ours too
if we get there
before all hell breaks loose
no way to now return
my rubicon
to a place called home
no way to return
you’ll be my phantom
any others make it
any others make it
any other man
any other woman
any other children
any other phantoms
any other demons
any other woman
any other children
any others damaged
any others vanquished
any others famished
any others damaged

BURST

foolish my heart burst through the seams
to wear it out exhausts me
foolish I tried to catch your ghost
one day to go
two more nights to go
I’d give anything to be with you once more
one more night
no show
two more days alone
I don’t imagine
I can let go
I’d give anything
I’d bear the consequence
I don’t imagine
I can let go
is this the way
is this the way it’s meant to be
is this the way it comes in waves and goes again
is this the rush
is this the rush you wish to stay
is this the way we fix and break everything
you want to go
you want to go
don’t want to go
don’t want to
is this the way
is this the way you want to stay
love has to wait
we’ll have to wait
I’ll have to wait
another day

CAPTIVE

aching
they made it
they fought through
where are you
I’m captive now without you
without you
too young to
then old news
not breaking up
too young to
then old news
not breaking through
too young to
then old news
not breaking up
too young to
then old news
not breaking through
aching
they made it
they fought through
but where are you
I’m captive now without you
without you, my love
so too young to
then old news
not breaking up
too young to
then old news
not breaking through
breaking through x 4
they trained you so well
they taught you so well
play on you boys
play on you girls

THE PUSH
you in a calm
drove to the stars
pushed hope away
but not that far
and the danger seems
to be
closer than you seem
and to fall without knowing
and to trust that no one
now can ever come along
what must a girl to do be found
you in a state
full of disdain
pushed me away
we’re not the same
now I choose a different view
I’m right in front
in front of you
and when you walk alone upon the street
you’re sometimes seen
but you don’t see me
and the danger is
to be
closer than you seem
to fall without knowing
and to trust that no one
now can ever come along
what must a girl do to be found
no more need no more need for commotion
no more need no more need for the caution
do you think the others got it better
do you think those girls got it alright
got it got it I got to get over
today, today I got to get over
got it got it got to get over
today, today I got to get over
broken love, broken love, broken love
broken

DESTROYER
no don’t tear it down
close our hopes are found
but their minds break through again
to destroy for some is easy
lose it to love it
leave it to gain it
chances are I’ll be so far gone before you
skin becomes a wall
shelter from ones lost
but the heart breaks through again
to hold on for some is easy
hey don’t tear it down
hey don’t tear it down
hey cold destroyer
I can’t go along
hey cold destroyer
I can’t go along
alone
Hate won’t destroy me
won’t tear it down
I couldn’t save
it
such a waste
you couldn’t wait
I couldn’t say
no don’t tear it down
here our young are found
but the mind breaks in again
to return for some is easy
hey don’t tear it down
hey don’t tear it down
hey cold destroyer
we can’t along
hey cold destroyer
I can’t go along

RUN WILD
could you grant you wish?
to be cageless
to long to be free
and enamoured always
run towards the west
to be ageless
chance is you won’t get
what is left to chance
all rise
follow through
on the loose
caught in crossfire
lost in fireworks
run girl
run girl
run girl
run girl

PRETEND AGAIN

remind me of how we had fun
twist and turned
til our lips had burned
and our smiles shone for everyone
you once longed to send loneliness adrift
tonight make it up
you can imagine
show me to pretend
make it up again
running out just in time
running down to the wire
you once ran to me
now you run from me
you once held my hands
showed your trust in friends
you once imagined
cursed the man
and ran to me
running out just in time
running down to the wire x3
remind me how
we twist and turned
remind me when
our lips still burned
and our smiles shone for everyone

HURRICANE II
I unleash
like a hurricane
raging
please stay safe in my eye
when I pull you like the tides
closer and then far far out
oh I proclaim
her hurricane
hurts the same
I’m sorry for eroding our shores
please help me rebuild
I’ll gather the sands of time in my hands
and smooth the shoals with you
Oh I proclaim
her hurricane
it hurts the same
dear please stay
assured of me
always
please stay assured
I am yours

DANCING BLIND
close your eyes
hear who is moving
no one needs eyes
I know I didn’t realize we were holding on
oh so strongly
softly be mine
and so you stand alone
trusting the floor
afraid of coming forth
seen holding your small hands
against the wall
as if to move is to fall
and now you feel your heart
beating beneath
your skin
it’s not security
so can you close your eyes
open your ears
and pretend we’re dancing blind
close your eyes
just to feel
who is moving
no one needs eyes
I know I didn’t realize we were holding on
oh so strongly
and so you stand alone
trusting the floor
afraid of coming forth
seen holding your small hands
against the wall
as if to move is to fall
and now you feel your heart
beating beneath
your skin
it’s not security
so can you close your eyes
open your ears
and pretend we’re dancing blind
no one’s too close
so loud it’s felt
so loud it’s felt
to your bones
and you’ve held on way too strong
holding on oh so strong
softly
be mine

THE TASK
dogs at the gate
foaming
an energy
merging
living and fantasy
dusting you off
trying to shine you
it’s corroded, crumbling
destined for fumbling
all of the imaginary friends
faking the fantasy
draping in cobwebs
an abandoned memory
arises from the cave
dark in apathy
the task makes her happy
when energy’s lacking
the task makes her happy
we’d rather be laughing
with you
dogs at the gate
foaming
an energy
merging
living and fantasy
dusting you off
trying to shine
it’s corroded, crumbling
watching them tumbling
all of the imaginary friends
faking your history
draping in cobwebs
the neglected little things
arise in the dusk
the dusk darkens everything
the task makes her happy
when energy’s lacking
the task makes me happy
when energy’s lacking
