Message

Message from the victor via satellite
Well, it's nice to know I'm doing something right
Guess it's my lucky night

Message from the leader on the giant screen
We need to talk about the way that it could be
In 2023

Oh
Waiting for the start to go
Waiting for the wind to blow
Right through my ache and hunger
Oh
Waiting for some heart to show
Waiting for the grass to grow
I'm coming up from under

I have to say that it was all I could do to decide
When I was with it I was playing ahead of the time
Made a start and I was walking to weather the stone
But if you look up and you stop...
The later you wait, you're missing the waterfall
Where did it go?
No, not a lot is so well defined now
No medicine to know it all
I reach out for lightness in the eyes

Letter to the future in the diary
I loved the summer and the swelling of the sea
Brought out the best in me

Letter to the juror and my alibi
My understanding was that I was doing fine
Above the waterline

Oh
Waiting for the start to go
Waiting for the wind to blow
Right through my ache and hunger

Oh
Waiting for some heart to show
Waiting for the grass to grow up
Coming up from under

Movement

Is it the way it is or the way it isn't right?
Do we ever arrive?
Is it the way that you get when the water tastes too dry
For the river inside?

Like a song with a broken verse
But the melody's saved in you
La la la la la
We can make the meaning up
It's only a step at a time
If you don't know where you're walking to

Movement is the motivation tonight
Human with no destination in mind

Is it in openness that a lonely man can find
What he ever denied?
Is it the way of the world if the world gets undermined
When you're living your life?

Like a song with a broken verse
But the melody's saved in you
La la la la la
We can make the meaning up
It's only a step at a time
If you don't know where you're walking to

Movement is the motivation tonight
Human with no destination in mind

Sunshine
Just like a friend of mine
Help me ease my mind
Be with me all the time
Wanna roll in the..(repeat)

Sharpness

Never been so inside it
When I give in to you
Never been so existing
you can't know unless you feel it

Come back
Body's aching
From the want and the waiting
I get this pain when you're leaving

Never felt this before
Never felt this before
Is it written on my back?

Take it back and then let it go
Let it go
Is it written on my back?
Take it back and then let it go

Every day is the day that you save me
Light into darkness
Cut on the sharpness of you

Never been so inside it
And fallen into you
Never been so resisting
You can't fall unless you feel it

Come back
Body's aching
From the want and the waiting
Coming down with a sickness

Staying in control
Steady and in control
Is it written on my back?
Take it back and then let it go
Let it go
Is it written on my back?
Take it back and then let it go

Every day is the day that you save me
Light into darkness
Cut on the sharpness of you

I want to love you, baby

Come back
Body's aching
From the want and the waiting
I get this pain when you're leaving

Never felt this before
Never felt this before

Is it written on my back?
Take it back and then let it go
Let it go
Is it written on my back?
Take it back and then let it go

Celebration

Walking down the block again
Waiting for the chop-block stop again
Wondering whether I'm at home and then I wait, wait
Gotta keep rhythm to the force again
This is the time to boss again
Rolling down a road that'll never end and it's hard

Making time on the rhythm
This one's mine all for giving
Feeling fine for the living
Mmm

Call this
Call this a celebration if you want
Strolling
Leave a shadow in the early morning sun

Stepping out of the smoke again
Opening up in the throat again
Shuffling the dice, gonna roll again today
Follow the river to the source again
Got to get clean in the moss again
Water comes and water goes away

Making time on the rhythm
This one's mine all for giving
Feeling fine for the living
Mmm

Call this
Call this a celebration if you want
Strolling
Leave a shadow in the early morning sun

Saddle up on the horse again
This is the time to boss, my friend
Got to keep rolling down the end
Don't stop now
Roll up the sheets, break em down
Polish the glass 'til it's shiny now
Up on your feet, shake it out
Don't look back, no

Call this
Call this a celebration if you want
Strolling
Leave a shadow in the early morning sun
Lament
And I didn't want to want a lot
Collecting understanding
The taming of the animal
And the taking of the land
A candle burning on and on
A correction of the eyes

Paint that sound a lighter brown
With all the life in you
Red is red you can't deny
The golden's in the blues
I tried to make a colour up
To come on fire for you

We could never stand the dulling of a feeling
Facing up to forever don't you know

Pray that song returns tonight
Call it into pass
Fathers ungrown cry tonight
Turn shadows into mass
Shattered stones are fallen on the ground
Let em where they lie

We could never stand the dulling of a feeling
Facing up to forever don't you know

Forgiven

In the eyes of the rivers and islands
In the skies and the clouds and the clear
All it takes, another day for survival
Reaching out from a silence of fear

Forgiven
Forgiven

When we came to the fire at the first place
Did we worry about what could be
Open country as wide as the first taste
Follow the seed to the leaf to the tree

Forgiven
Forgiven

Wanted to make it rain at the right times
For the hours it rained down inside of me

For the fakes and delays of a lifetime
Fill the cracks in a repeat in history

Forgiven
Forgiven

Little Wonder

Coming up and I don't know why
Calling you across the distance
To the echoing inside
Little wonder come alive
Call it in the sacred night

Get us on the glowing
There's a space and a time for us
On the path of no resistance
Where the echoing collides
Little wonder come alive
Call it in forsaken light

If we go on the wind
Be around for a friend
Putting down what we know
We can rest, we can grow

Thunder

If you want it too
I'll get on it too, baby x2

Told you I'm as ready as they come, woah
Told you I'm as steady as the thunder
Told you I'm as ready as they come, woah
Told you I'm as steady as the thunder

Like a son of rain and a son of fire

Told you I'm as steady as they come, woah
Told you I'm as ready as the thunder
Call me, I'm as ready as they come, woah
Call me, I'm as steady as the thunder

Come on, come on

Skin

Skin with it's open agenda
Rise to the top for some air
Growing too slowly to mention
Heat in your heart and your head
Heat in your heart and your head
Heat in your heart and your head
Growing too slowly to mention
Heat in your heart and your head
Skin on the hand of a baby
Skin at the edge of a man
Growing too slowly to save me
Heat in your heart and your head
Heat in your heart and your head
Heat in your heart and your head
Growing too slowly to mention
Heat in your heart and your head
Skin with its own reinventions
Rise to the top for some air
Growing too slowly to mention
Heat in your heart and your head
Heat in your heart and your head
Heat in your heart and your head
Growing too slowly to mention
Heat in your heart and your head

Dedication

Nameless makers
Who made it to the end
Millions of marks on papers
And credit in the wind

But living on

All I can say is
Because of another

Because of another
Maybe I might dedicate my days and nights from now on

To living on
A dedication left in time for another x2
(Dedicated to the unknown
Dedicated to the moonlight
Dedicated to the elements
Dedicated to the never known
Dedicated to all another life)

Creators cultivated
A spirit in the swing
Were oppressed and faced by hatred
But sang it out again

And living on

All I can say is
Because of another

Because of another
Maybe I might dedicate my days and nights from now on

To living on
A dedication left in time for another x4

(Dedicated to the unknown
Dedicated to the moonlight
Dedicated to the elements
Dedicated to the never known
Dedicated to all another life)
