SHIVERS 04:20
Call to me, draw me in Rekindle my touch on burning skin Snakebite me deep From my blindside in my sleep Bite my lip, give me shivers No lone candle but a wild fire Scare me, make me doubt Feelings racing in and out Hush the word, dress to kill I surrender my free will Strip my soul until I shiver Heart and mind caught in the crossfire I push and pull, I'm burning out I push and pull then ask for more, Drifting away South of no North Shake my world to the core I check my conscience at your door Eat my heart, bite my tongue I'm losing my sense of right and wrong Shaking off these shivers My hands are tied with live wire I push and pull, I'm burning out I push and pull then ask for more, Drifting away South of no North.

It’s been too long Since I’ve felt grass under my feet Days are heavy I need a break from all this concrete I spent too long in a world Without natural light Let’s catch early birds In full morning flight It’s been too long Since I got lost in new silence Show me a sky where I’ll see Dead stars go the distance Show me that sun in you No matter what you carry behind I’l split my moon in two And relearn to be kind Show me a way To borrow this Earth with strangers It’s been too long since I saw The moon from under water I’m trying to chase The evil twins who claim my body Leave with me, let’s escape Skin to skin faraway Show me that sun in you No matter what you carry behind I’l split my moon in two And relearn to be kind I can’t see What you see in me Let me see What you see in me Let me hear What you see in me in broken whispers (It’s been too long) (It’s been too long) Show me that sun in you No matter what you carry behind I’l split my moon in two And relearn to be kind I can’t see What you see in me Let me see What you see in me Let me hear What you see in me in broken whispers (It’s been too long) (It’s been too long) (It’s been too long) (It’s been too long)

This is a man on a mission With a chip on his shoulder No need to call him “brother” It’s better left unspoken Needing some way to feel alive Where boy and man collide They could chase us around for miles We may be losers but we’ve got style Who needs blood When there’s one road Who needs words When there’s one soul Joined at the hip against the world This is a man on a mission He carries love like a burden Slamming doors with primal screams And a fistful of teenage dreams Crossing paths and splitting roads Follow an unspoken code Gloves are off, the bottle dry Lies by day but truth at night Who needs blood When there’s one road Who needs words When there’s one soul Joined at the hip against the world With dangerous intentions And no real world ambition He won’t take yes for an answer Happiness is way too bitter Who needs blood When there’s one road Who needs words When there’s one soul Joined at the hip against the world We’re burning the morning after We’re burning the morning after

A state to shake Nothing left to fake Just another skin to shed In my own bed Too many nights in a row I need a new town to borrow Rootless and free This old soil under me Barefoot on a foreign cloud Sing out loud Make the last mile Like some pilgrim with a tired smile No word, no word for goodbye, no, no, no Walking, letting life happen and take over and take over One more short stay And long goodbyes I am just a passerby Bluffing my way From town to nation I am lost in translation (with) No word, no word for goodbye, no, no, no Walking, letting life happen and take over and take over Until we meet again, Until we meet again, With no past, no future Until we meet again Until we meet again I’m just a passerby With no word for goodbye I’m just a passerby With no word for goodbye With no word for goodbye

There are no friends on the road Just the good, the bad and the broken Racing to break even But no friends on the road You can walk, stroll and run Under pressure to have fun You can use, reuse and discard But don’t you be too hard No, don’t you be too hard We’ll split and sever And I’ll run forever Like a night-hunter, A restless drifter, a lonely driver Watch me, watch over me, take me anywhere I won’t ask, you won’t say But that smell won’t go away Pretend that you care Pretend that you care We’re all friends at this hour Now’s your chance to whisper Your own unspeakable Mercy for the feeble Watch me, watch over me, want me if you dare One more late escape Watch me escape fate Pretend that you care Pretend that you care I’m speeding solo Nose glued to my window I’m burning mean streets From the edge of my seat Drunk losers out for fights Cross-dressed angels light up the night Sidewalk prophets Quote holy books like men possessed So I drive past the docks by the riverside I drive, drive and drive up the mountainside And you scream from the other side of the universe Relive your whole life in reverse And you scream from the other side of the universe Relive your whole life in reverse So I drive and I drive, I drive and you ride, I drive and you ride On this New-Wave drive On this New-Wave drive
