The Roar Of The World

And while it may feel like you're in a stadium, in front of a crowd screaming that you must die, there are voices in that crowd, if you listen closely, screaming for you to live.

The Chance For Light

No gods or devils. No angels or demons. No group of people controlling the world. Not the greatest person to ever live. Not the worst. Just people. Just a person. Just like you and me.

The Physics In The Air

And I promise you I'll hold your hand back. I'll sit back and enjoy it. I'll laugh at lightning. I'll giggle at thunder. I'll drink raindrops. I'll lean into the wind. I'll see the sun come out. And one day, I'll cry for a storm that's passed, never to come again.

The Science In The Sky

I'll hold your hand during the storm, if you promise to sit back and enjoy it.

The Ghost Tear

There's still 7 oceans worth of you here, in the world you left behind. That's why this ship is haunted.

The Plea

Please words. I need you now (the and and you two especially). I need you to tell the truth. To say things as they are. Don't be words that I say too fast, words that I have to defend. Please don't listen to me when I tell you to do the wrong things, be the words you were meant to be. Be honour and fire place and celler door. Be slow and sunrise and sunset. Be a phrase "I know they come again." No words more than needed, just enough to say what I mean and mean what I say. Please words. Work.

The Vino Lacks Veritas

The worst you could do, is be my best. Love is damned. Love is blessed.

The World In The Mirror

I am not afraid of you. There's nothing you can do to me that hasn't already been done before.

The Bricks Made Of Memories

They show you a place in your head where you remember why we were never meant to be alone. And you try and act surprised.

The Pictures Aren't Pretty

All the people you see in the street, who would rather wear sunglasses than know where they're going, they get put back in the gallery at night, they get covered up for the next day. So they can think that a road is a grey river that'll take them anywhere, as long as they can float. So they can carry on. There are so few real people in this world. Thank you for being one of them.

The Parts Apart

I know you don't want it to matter right now. That's why it matters the most.

The Sun Burns Out

I do not know how it ends. Just that I miss you, right before it does.

The Wasted Words

You will forgive me, I hope you don't mind me saying, I just wanted to add, if you've got time and I've said it before and I'll say it again, because you should know, before we go any further, we should put everything on the table because the reality is and the truth is and the fact of the matter is, I shouldn't interrupt but I was wondering and if you know, please tell me, how we manage to say so much, without saying anything at all.
