CALM


CALM WHEN YOU’RE ALL ALONE
WARM WITH THE VINYL TONE
SAFE WHERE THE TURF IS KNOWN

REST FOR YOUR WEARY MIND
FREED FROM THE TIES THAT BIND
SOLVED WHAT YOU WERE ASSIGNED

AND INTO THE NIGHT
YOU SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
YOU SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
YOU SET THE NEEDLE DOWN

WORK
IT’S JUST ANOTHER YEAR
WITH THOUGHTS OF A NEW FRONTIER
OFF WHERE YOU CAN DISAPPEAR

INTO THE NIGHT
AND SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
AND SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
AND SET THE NEEDLE DOWN

WORN WHEN YOU’RE ON THE WING
TORN FROM THE WORDS THEY SING
REBORN FROM WHAT THE SPEAKERS BRING
BUILDING PROGRESS FROM DECAY
AND ORDER OUT OF DISARRAY

HOME WHERE WE’RE OUT OF VIEW
I HOPE WE CAN FOLLOW THROUGH
AND OWN WHAT WE CAN’T UNDO

AND INTO THE NIGHT
WE’LL SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
WE’LL SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
WE’LL SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
WE’LL SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
WE’LL SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
WE’LL SET THE NEEDLE DOWN
WE’LL SET THE NEEDLE DOWN


I LET IT LIE


HAVE ALL OF THESE ACTIONS BEEN DECIDED?
ARE THESE OPERATIONS MANUFACTURED BY DESIGN?
OR IS THIS ALL RANDOM AND UNFORESEEN?
IS IT NATURAL OR SOME MACHINE?
WOULD WE ACT THE SAME IF WE KNEW WHAT IT MEANS?

WARM AT HOME, I FAIL TO THINK ABOUT IT
COLD AND ON THE ROAD, IT ALWAYS SEEPS INTO MY MIND
AND BRINGS ME LOW BECAUSE I CAN’T EXPLAIN
WHAT ALL THIS IS MEANT TO ATTAIN
AND UNTIL I DO, I’LL GRIN AND BEAR THE PAIN

OH, I LET IT LIE
OH, I LET IT LIE
ALL IS ALL & WHY IS WHY
OH, I LET IT LIE

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I DON’T SEEM TO MIND IT
THEN IT SPOTS A WAY TO REAPPEAR AMONG MY THOUGHTS
WHERE IT’S BEEN WAITING PATIENT FOR A LULL
SHOWING ME WHAT’S CRUCIAL AND WHAT’S NULL
KEEPING TRACK OF THINGS HIDDEN WITHIN MY SKULL

OH, I LET IT LIE
OH, I LET IT LIE
ALL IS ALL & WHY IS WHY

ARE WE FATEFUL DEVOTEES?
OR SAILORS ON AN ENDLESS SEA?

I RECKON THERE’S NO USE IN BEING FRIGHTENED
I RECKON THERE’S NO REASON TO BE STRESSED OR OVERWROUGHT
BUT STILL, IT’S TOO IMPORTANT TO IGNORE
THOUGH IT ALWAYS LEAVES ME WANTING MORE
CAN I SHUT OFF ALL THE AFTERS AND BEFORES?
CAN I STRIP IT BACK TO SEE WHAT’S AT THE CORE?
WHERE I HOPE TO FIND THE TRUTH I’M LOOKING FOR?

DIG DOWN


ARE THEY KNOCKING IT DOWN
AS YOU’RE LAYING THE BRICKS?
ARE YOU WAITING OUTSIDE
AS THEY’RE WORKING BETWIXT?
IS YOUR BODY IN MOTION
AS THEY’RE ALL TRANSFIXED ON THE HYPE?
ARE THEY HIDING THE CRUMBS
AS YOU’RE CHASING THE CLUES?
ARE THEY DOUSING THE FIRE
AS YOU’RE LIGHTING THE FUSE?
DO YOU WANT TO BE CHOSEN
OR DO YOU WANT TO CHOOSE YOUR SIDE?

DIG DOWN
WHERE IT ALL GETS FOUND
COME ON DIG DOWN
WHERE IT LIVES

DO THEY ALL LOOK CONTENT
WHEN YOU’RE FEELING APPALLED?
ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR FACTS
AS THEY HAIL THE SO-CALLED?
DO YOU STRUGGLE TO SOAR
WHEN THE ENGINE HAS STALLED ON HIGH?
COME ON NOW SPEAK UP!
DO YOU FEEL MORE YOURSELF
WHEN YOU USE THAT NAME?
IS ACQUIRING THE ANSWERS
THE AIM OF THE GAME?
IF THE PAST AND THE PRESENT
AND THE FUTURE ARE THE SAME, OH MY…

GATHER UP YOUR WITS
AND DIG DOWN
WHERE IT ALL GETS FOUND
COME ON DIG DOWN
WHERE IT LIVES
HAND ME THAT SHOVEL

DON’T YOU KNOW?
YOU GOTTA DIG DOWN
WHERE IT ALL GETS FOUND
COME ON DIG DOWN
WHERE IT LIVES
YEAH RIGHT NOW!
WE’RE GONNA DIG DOWN
WHERE IT ALL GETS FOUND
COME ON DIG DOWN
WHERE IT LIVES
SEEK IT OUT

SHOULD I


SHOULD I STAY AND FIGHT OR SHOULD I RUN?
SHOULD I TALK PLAIN OR TRY TO MAKE A PUN?
SHOULD I ASSUME THAT,
WHATEVER IT IS THAT I AM,
I’M THE ONLY ONE?

SHOULD I LET THEM FEUD OR MEND THE RIFT?
SHOULD I JUMP OR CLING CLOSE TO THE CLIFF?
SHOULD I PASS THE TIME WITH MAKING RHYMES?
OR SIT AND PONDER THE WHAT IFS?

OH, I KNOW…
OH, I KNOW…

SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT THE BY AND BY?
SHOULD I LAY IT BARE OR KEEP IT ON THE SLY?
SHOULD I ACQUIESCE WITH SKEPTICISM?
OR CONTINUE ASKING WHY?

SHOULD I SWITCH OR SEE THROUGH WHAT I PLANNED?
SHOULD I LET IT GO OR KEEP IT CLOSE AT HAND?
SHOULD I EXIT BEFORE THINGS GET VICIOUS?
OR PREPARE TO MAKE MY STAND?

OH, I KNOW…
OH, I KNOW…

SHOULD I KEEP IT ALL INSIDE MY HEAD?
SHOULD I RISE TO ACTION OR PLAY DEAD?
SHOULD I HAVE WRITTEN SONGS
WITH STUPID QUESTIONS
OR LEFT ALL OF THIS UNSAID?
