CORSA AL RIBASSO (THE RISING TIDE PT1)

  • Jesus Vs Mohammed (Ali)
    Gouged out my eyes
    	In a dream I had
    		In an effort to see
    			Clearer
    
    But now I'm awake
    What do I see
    In this future?
    What do you see
    What do you see
    In my picture?
    
    I feel so hollow
    I feed this machine every day (FEED THE MACHINE)
    I feel so hollow
    I feed this machine every day (FEED THE MACHINE)
    So this is how a young man dies
    
    Fight for phyrric victories
    THAT YOU WON'T REMEMBER THE WAY THAT YOU SHOULD
    And smile at men that you despise
    CRYING WON'T SAVE YOU BUT LYING MAY STAY IT A WHILE
    So this is how a man in a desert can drown
    Always with the best of intentions...
    
    Choose your armour well...	
    	But don't mention it
    
    I can't feel my arms
    At the journey's end.
    				
  • Lines In The Sand
    I can't let go
    
    At least I'm feeling, at least I'm existing
    At least I'm breathing, it means I'm existing 
    
    It's time to let go
    Of things we cannot know
    Throw off the mask of fear
    Repair, re-engineer
    But what do we have here?
    Beneath what we held dear
    
    (A need to) shout in the age of whisperers (For I'm no whisperer)
    To believe in an age of doubters (For I'm no doubter)
    
    "Don't you give up yet
    The future is not set"
    But I heard it from a liar
    Trying to make me a better offer
    "Your ambition is not dead
    Not just yet..."
    
    Maybe it's just sleeping (But I'm not tired)
    Maybe it's just sleeping (But I'm not tired)
    
    So slow down
    
    Maybe its a phase we all go through
    Maybe its a trace we'll just wash through 
    Like lines in the sand
    Lines in the sand (I won't it let it go)
    
    If we're all one of a kind
    It's a very different kind
    One of a kind
    But a very different kind
    
    One day I woke up
    To find myself stranded on the beach
    Lost, trying to find the line we drew
    From me, To you, and Back
    That divided Us, From Them
    
    But the weather had changed
    
    So, heard you're feeling lonely
    No, don't remind me, there's plenty of it here
    Just get to the back of the line
    So, heard you're feeling angry
    No, don't remind me, there's plenty of it here
    Just get to the back of the line
    Ah
    No, don't remind me, there's plenty of us here
    Maybe there's just too many of us?
    
    Hey
    Hey
    
    Is it too late?
    Can we still get out?
    Is it too late
    Or can we get out?
    "I will still respect you", she lied
    "If you get out"
    So it's true, we can get out
    LET'S GET OUT NOW
    
    At least I'm feeling, at least I'm existing
    EVEN THE SKY IS BLUE
    At least I'm breathing, it means I'm existing 
    SO WHY CAN'T I BE?
    		
  • Once More With Feeling (Best Supporting Actor)
    I'm not 
    really sure
    if anyone's listening
    but I'll say it anyway
    I'm not
    finished yet
    but it gets close sometimes
    I'm not
    washed out
    but yes I'm fading
    'Cos I'm not really into it
    I'm not really a part of it
    I'm not even the main character 
    in my own life
    
    Am I really a part of it?
    Am I really into it?
    I'm not really a part of it
    I'm not really into it
    
    SO!
    This is what they meant
    "Suffer for your art"
    I knew there had to be a reason
    
    SELL!
    Sell yourself
    Sell your soul.
    Be the best supporting actor.
    
    I can't sort it -  all these things that wash around inside my head
    I can't sort it  - all those things I thought about and wish I'd said
    
    SO! ...
    
    I'll do the best I can
    I'm sure I'm not the only one
    
    Go on, give it your best shot
    Tie your laces
    		
  • Corsa Al Ribasso
    Don't give it all away
    
    And in spite of it all
    In spite of it all
    
    We'll stay
    
    Don't give it all away
    
    And in spite of it all
    In spite of it all
    
    We'll stay
    
    		
  • View From A Glass House
    London 
    Is burning
    Might just melt a few cold hearts
    London
    Is burning me
    
    Lit me up like a spark...
    Razed me like it raised you...
    Can't you see London is burning you
    
    (Where there is smoke there is fire too)
    
    Don't sit so close to me
    It makes me miss 
    It makes me pine for
    Empathy
    
    Just a thought I had on my way home (x3)
    We're all travelling alone
    
    Don't you want to be remembered?
    Don't you want to be a member?
    
    Pressure
    
    EAT > WORK > FUCK > SLEEP (> REPEAT).
    
    I'm not sure I can take it
    I'm not sure
    I'll make it out alive
    
    I'm too scared to face it
    It won't take this boy
    this man alive
    
    this boy alive
    this man alive
    
    Pressure
    But you can't hide what you are
    
    You can't hide
    		
  • Rising Tide Of The Disconnected
    I was told
    "You'll die alone"
    No, I don't want to die alone
    
    one, two, three, four, five, six, seven...
    Will all God's children fit in heaven?
    
    This is just the close the first scene
    	I don't want to die alone
    Just the same as the last scene
    	I don't want to die alone
    I've torn this mirror in two
    	I don't want to die alone
    Take half and make me whole
    	I don't want to die alone	
    
    These are the lies and contradictions
    That make up our minds and their reflections
    We speak in tongues so int-er-pret us
    Give us a chance but please don't trust us
    
    These are the lies
    
    We're Beggars
    And Liars
    And Sowers
    And Reepers
    And Widows
    And Killers
    But they didn't see us
    
    We're disconnected
    
    We take while we can
    We do what we can
    
    So when they gave you chance why didn't you take it?
    Took what you wanted but didn't replace it
    These are the lies and contradictions
    The Devil makes work for idle fingers
    
    I am an anchor
    You are a wave
    
    (All the seasons I'll follow, I'll follow you)
    
    I ran out of words
    But not things to say
    When I dropped my dream
    
    I count each breath
    And keep the receipts
    In a world of repeats
    
    For all the memories we had
    All the places we went
    All the people we met
    
    Wasted
    
    Wasted
    
    I can't wait
    I can't wait anymore
    
    Will all God's children fit in Heaven?
