Matt Corby What The Devil Has Made

Tide pull me under

Tie me up when I don’t remember

Well the sun caught me sleeping

So am I the measure of my own fate

Death just won’t wait

Somebody moved up moved on you gotta take their war to the grave

In this world the cruel will show you gotta take what the devil has made

Somebody moved up moved on you gotta take their war to the grave

In this world the cruel will show you gotta take what the devil has made

I am a sleeper

For a while getting deeper

To the water for your sins until death knocks at your door

So am I the measure of my own fate

Death just won’t wait

Somebody moved up moved on you gotta take their war to the grave

In this world the cruel will show you gotta take what the devil has made

Somebody moved up moved on you gotta take their war to the grave

In this world the cruel will show you gotta take what the devil has made

Somebody moved up moved on you gotta take their war to the grave

In this world the cruel will show you gotta take what the devil has made

Somebody moved up moved on you gotta take their war to the grave

In this world the cruel will show you gotta take what the devil has made

Matt Corby Lay You Down

I thought I knew I’d find you

Right infront of my eyes

Oh, it’s holdin me down

And oh it’s holdin me down

To let you inside, now

It’s calling out, it’s calling me

And I follow the hour

And I will love your way

And I love your way

To let you inside, now

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you and lay you down

Even though you can’t touch me

I’m right there under your skin

And I’ve fallen in love before

But with no one with a name not anymore

And all along the way

All along the way

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

All along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you, down

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

And all along the way

I’ll find you, I’ll find you

Matt Corby Breathe

Speed stretched fallen rain

Skin lines on the window pane

It blurs until I’m blind

Can’t see the other side

I took the long way home

Through Novembers undertone

Sharp eyes sifting through to find

Moments rare and purified

I didn’t know where I was

Or where I was running to

I didn’t know where I was

I don’t know where I’m running to

Fear is needless, seize

Air is fearless, breathe

So far from the ocean’s thrall

I was homesick inside city walls

(Oooh) The seasons were upside down

I was lost in hope that I won’t be found

I didn’t know where I was

Or where I was running to

I didn’t know where I was

I don’t know where I’m running to

Fear is needless, seize

Air is fearless, breathe

Matt Corby Lighthome

The light of home

Burned out and dark now

You held me captive

The thief that takes it all, from me

A love not to return

Still daylight comes back

But you stay silent

The books you’re buried in

Blind your tale

Walk on my dear

Stand firm

Don’t you show your face

The light of home

Burned out and dark now

You held me captive

A thief who takes it all, and no more

Light of home

Oh oh

I feel like I’m falling I’ve just got

To close my eyes and I’m looking for something

To recognize

The light of home

Burned out and dark now

You held me captive

The thief that takes it all

No more

A love not to return

Light of home

Matt Corby We Could Be Friends

Oh I was in the basin

Crawling knees and slow time

I was so adamant to shake you

For the freedom I sought

Oh I was never mindful that you had done time

You can fight but eventually you will learn what we do,

Oh don’t you know, or could it be

That we could be friends

We could be friends

We could be friends

We’ll see the end of it

I gotta give you a chance to trust me

So we’ll know how to be

When everything ends

Everything ends

Everything ends

So I depend on you to be here with me

Everybody wants to say that dying’s alright

Every baby’s born with no fear

Until the day they become a liar

You can fight but eventually you will learn what we do,

Oh don’t you know, or could it be

That we could be friends

We could be friends

We could be friends

We’ll see the end of it

I gotta give you a chance to trust me

So we’ll know how to be

When everything ends

Everything ends

Everything ends

So I depend on you to be here with me

Emphatic, erratic, automatic, do-gooder cash cows

I can safely say I’m no better

Or no worse now

I’m too idealistic to ever meet my expectations

I’m a child star contestant on a show too overrated

Matt Corby Empires Attraction

No one’s going to save us

Superman please save us

No one’s going to save us

No one’s going to save us

Superman please save us

Hollywood creators, they’re the one who take us

Someone’s trying to trade us

And we are all in danger

We’re made up in the paper

Everybody knows that

Everybody knows that

No one’s going to save you

Prince is going to save you

Wu-tang might just save you

Rock n roll won’t stage us

The banks are going to frame us

We must be courageous

We are going to save us

Your mama’s going to save us

How can they save you if they can’t help themselves?

How can they save you if they can’t help themselves?

Someone’s trying to shame us

Making it contagious

The blueprints of salvation from idle corporations

The empires attractions are getting no reactions

And gives no satisfaction

Something’s got to shape us

Boredom’s going to shape us

Something’s got to shake us out of this and save us

How can they save you if they can’t help themselves?

How can they save you if they can’t help themselves?

How can they save you if they can’t help themselves?

How can they save you if they can’t help themselves?

Matt Corby Song For…

A million prayers went up to heaven

They went for nothing

A million pleas came back down

They said “stop asking”

So much blood on my hands..

So much blood on my hands..

The angels cried “we can do nothing”

Our hearts were sunken

Cause the focus of our prayers

Was fraudulent yet wary

That the lords wrath would come

So much blood on my hands

So much blood on my hands

So much blood on my hands (I’m so lost)

So much blood on my hands (I’m so lost)

Matt Corby Wrong Man

You know you’re talking to the wrong man, my friend

I was on the fence

Wasting time in future tense

And all I came here for was finding love to help me understand my own

It’s undefendable

And now you wanna tell me you’re devoted

All the while you told me you don’t know

And now you wanna come and sell me what I already own

And now you’re trying to teach me what I already know

You know you’re talking to the wrong man, my friend

When they bleed you out

I won’t blame you now

And all I came here for was finding love to help me understand my own

Right, wrong or legal

And all the greatest hands that I would hold in mine

All the times I had to let them go

And now they wanna come and sell you what you already own

And now they’re trying to teach you what you already know

You know you’re talking to the wrong man, my friend

I’ll still make amends

Gaining time in present tense

And all I came here for was finding love to help me understand my home

And redefine it all

So the air I’ll breathe in to drown in the sea

I’ve been beat up and did you know

You said you’d know

I get a little bit chewed up

I wouldn’t if I had known

And seeing some part of you hopeful

I know and I know you don’t

See, I’m busy easy falling down degrees

I know you won’t count on me yeah

And the truth never bothers me

I know and I know you don’t

You’re celebrated for your time awake

I know you won’t be sleeping high

You know you’re talking to the wrong man, my friend

When they bleed you out

I won’t blame you now

And all I came here for was finding love to help me understand my own

Right, wrong or legal

Matt Corby Lonely Souls

Don’t go

Don’t leave me here

Cos your mind, keeps my mind clear

And I can’t relearn

What you taught me dear

Don’t leave

I swear I’ll be good

I swear I’ll always do

What you say I should

And I can’t return

No I won’t return

To the place that I stood yeah

Back in the darkened wood

Lonely souls that hide their futures from their pasts

Find that they can’t move on

But stay still in time till

They are reconciled

Oh with one another

Then they’ll move on

Oh move right along

Don’t leave

I swear I’ll be good

I swear I’ll always do

What you, what you say I should

And I won’t return

I won’t return

To that place I stood

Matt Corby Untitled

So I threw your letter into the flame

And watched the fire regain

And these words have done nothing for you

As I did not read them through

Now turned to ash in the flume

And colours are dull

As the feeling of the cold

And memories fall

As the fire is getting old

Oh and I once more am now

Don’t you fret I’ll find my way

Carefully walking from the devil’s plane

And I know why you did not follow me

Pride swallowed me then led me astray

And now the dark in me has now seen the day

Oh my chill has now lost its way

And these hands that once had helped me to pray

They are limp in utter dismay

Oh they, oh they fall in their disarray

And colours are dull

As the feeling of the cold

And memories fall

As the fire is getting old

Oh and I, I once more am now

Oh don’t you fret I’ll find my way

Carefully walking from the devil’s plane

And I know why you did not follow me

Pride swallowed me then led me astray
