Editors Darkness At The Door

This is our corner of the planet

It’s the straight edges we inhabit

We ignore the darkness at the door

Turn the lights out if you hear me

Stop your screaming, just speak clearly

The lonely and the righteous

I just need friends and nothing more

This old town still gets out of line

Darkness at the door to greet me

This old town still gets out of line

Darkness at the door to greet me

It’s the first sign of an affliction

Familiarity of an addiction

That old friend’s a welcome sight

I like it when I see him

He covers up the world we live in

Lights a firework in my pocket

Some friends are worth the fight

This old town still gets out of line

Darkness at the door to greet me

This old town still gets out of line

Darkness at the door to greet me

Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town

Darkness at the door to greet me

Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town

Darkness at the door to greet me

Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town

Darkness at the door to greet me

Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town

Darkness at the door

I must manage expectations

My idols are revelations

I hope I never meet them

This is our corner of the planet

It’s the straight edges we inhabit

Just friends and nothing more

Become the darkness at the door

This old town still gets out of line

Darkness at the door to greet me

This old town still gets out of line

Darkness at the door to greet me

This old town still gets out of line

(Waiting for the darkness, waiting for the darkness)

Darkness at the door to greet me

This old town still gets out of line

(Waiting for the darkness, waiting for the darkness)

Darkness at the door to greet me

Editors For The Money

Here’s where the wind leaves its mark across your face,

And the ocean knows more than we’ll ever know.

Wake from our sleep, we are crippled but unique,

A cat in a bag meets the undertow

Make to the fields that are neighbouring your town,

Take all that you can carry.

Play with the fire and let the money burn,

It only bought a lack of sincerity.

Who’s gonna make us better,

If we won’t believe there are things left to say?

And who’s gonna take away the slaughter,

And put us to bed at the end of the day?

Here’s where the wind leaves its mark across your face,

A perfect place to fall on your sword.

Keep your hands to yourself,

Overestimate your wealth,

Don’t touch what you can’t afford.

Who’s gonna make us better,

If we won’t believe there are things left to say?

We watch as the dust settles around us,

Now put us to bed at the end of the day.

And everyone says:

“One for the money!

Two for the money!

Three for the money!

Four for the money!

Five for the money!

Six for the money!

Seven for the money!

Eight for the money!”

Editors Alternative: No Harm

I boil easier than you, crush my bones into glue

I’m a go-getter

The system’s in red, the room is inbred

I’m a go-getter

My children are spies, my wonderful lies

I’m a go-getter

Don’t harm, no harm

Don’t harm, no harm

The fever I feel, the fake and the real

I’m a go-getter

My world just expands, it’s out of my hands

I’m a go-getter

Don’t harm, no harm

Don’t harm, no harm

Don’t harm, no harm

Don’t harm, don’t harm

Editors Belong

In this room

A wilderness

You’re the calm

In that dress

Circling birds

Spits of rain

Rest your head

On the windowpane

Here’s our love

It breathes and dreams

This wilderness

These kings and queens

In this room

Our sheltered hole

Our skin’s alive

I wear your soul

Never belong to anyone else but me

(Never belong to, never belong to)

Never belong to anyone else but me

(Never belong to, never belong to)

Never belong to anyone else but me

(Never belong to, never belong to)

Never belong to, never belong to, never belong

Welcome home

How long’s it been?

I know that face

From bad dream

A wilderness

Beyond those walls

A poignant pause

As a picture falls

Never belong to anyone else but me

(Never belong to, never belong to)

Never belong to anyone else but me

(Never belong to, never belong to)

Never belong to anyone else but me

(Never belong to, never belong to)

Never belong to, never belong to, never belong

Welcome home (welcome home)

How long’s it been?

A wilderness is in me

A wilderness is in me

(Welcome home)

Welcome home

How long’s it been?

A wilderness is in me

A wilderness is in me

Welcome home

How long’s it been?

A wilderness is in me

A wilderness is in me

Editors Counting Spooks

You know it’s gonna hurt

Sore feet dragged through the dirt

Hit me right here

The lazy way we love

Good times we’re dreaming of

Hit me right here

It’s getting late

The skyline’s a state

This city’s tired like we are

We’re holding it together

Counting spooks forever

I’m just so tired of numbers

Night vision on

Get the missionaries home

Hit me right here

You know where I start

And you know where I end

Hit me right here

It’s getting late

The skyline’s a state

This city’s tired like we are

We’re holding it together

Counting spooks forever

I’m just so tired of numbers

And it’s getting late

The skyline’s a state

And this city’s tired like we are

We’re holding it together

Counting spooks forever

And I’m just so tired of numbers

Holding it together

We’re holding it together

Editors No Sound But The Wind

We can never go home

We no longer have one

I’ll help you carry the load

I’ll carry you in my arms

The kiss of the snow

The crescent moon above us

Our blood is cold

And we’re alone

But I’m alone with you

Help me to carry the fire

We will keep it alight together

Help me to carry the fire

It will light our way forever

If I say shut your eyes

If I say look away

Bury your face in my shoulder

Think of a birthday

The things you put in your head

They will stay here forever

Our blood is cold

And we’re alone, love

But I’m alone with you

Help me to carry the fire

We will keep it alight together

Help me to carry the fire

It will light our way forever

Help me to carry the fire

We will keep it alight together

Now help me to carry the fire

It will light up our way forever

If I say shut your eyes

If I say shut your eyes

Bury me in suprise

Where I say shut your eyes

Help me to carry the fire

We will keep it alight together

Help me carry the fire

It will light our way forever

Editors Nothingness

I’m not mining for gold

But insecurity

Fooled by a trick of the light

Are you there?

I’m not breaking the mould

I wouldn’t fill it

Hold my life in your hands

If you dare

We wait, weighed down

We let it all escape

We let it go, let it go

We let it go

We let it go

We wait in line for nothingness

We wait in line for nothingness

This angel needs some tenderness

This angel needs some tenderness

We wait in line for nothingness

We wait in line for nothingness

This angel needs some tenderness

This angel needs some tenderness, tenderness

I’m not here for the show

I’m not buying it

Five steps back from the past

If you dare

We wait, weighed down

We let it all escape

We let it go, we let it go

We let it go

We wait in line for nothingness

We wait in line for nothingness

This angel needs some tenderness

This angel needs some tenderness

We wait in line for nothingness

We wait in line for nothingness

This angel needs some tenderness

This angel needs some tenderness, tenderness…

We wait in line for nothingness

We wait in line for nothingness

This angel needs some tenderness

This angel needs some tenderness

We wait in line for nothingness

We wait in line for nothingness

This angel needs some tenderness

This angel needs some tenderness, tenderness

The moon rising

Over the ugly moulage

Keep talking

Who you running from?

Tonight, we should calm

The disappearing sun

Good fortune

Gets stuck in your teeth

Good-looking

You’re a unicorn dancing in the flames

Anger in your veins

Son, you were made to suffer

Oh, but the morning comes

Oh, when the light is failing

Temptation takes you to

Salvation

Swimming with the swarm of electric stars

Salvation

Deliverance is ours by the light of the stars

Move closer

Drink the morning air

Don’t embrace

Taste of lemonade

Suffer, then we sit

Wallow in regret

Son, you were made to suffer

Oh, but the morning comes

Oh, when the light is failing

Temptation takes you to

Editors A Ton Of Love

I lit a match in Vienna tonight,

It caused a fire in New York.

Where is my self-control?

You gotta learn to be thankful,

For the things that you have.

Now bathe my idle soul in

Desire,

Desire,

Desire,

Desire.

Taken by force,

Twisted fate,

Well, what weighs more,

Down on your plate.

A ton of love,

A ton of hate,

We’re waiting for,

A chance of, a chance of, a chance of

Desire,

Desire,

Desire,

Desire.

I don’t trust the government,

I don’t trust myself,

What is a boy gonna do?

Build a church in the city,

A place to crawl with our own,

We’ll give our God away.

Taken by force,

Twisted fate,

Well, what weighs more,

Down on your plate.

A ton of love,

A ton of hate,

We’re waiting for,

A chance of, a chance of, a chance of.
