Poets Of The Fall Choice Millionaire

Cars in the night, cut through the mist

Baby suns for eyes, diamonds on your wrist

Twist in the scheme, a permeating theme

A violin crescendo

Dark violet skies over seas of lead

Hard violent fights, red sun will set

Like a rivulet, like a tear beget

A clear innuendo

Silence of the mind ever deafening

Rain on the roof ever prattling

Straddling truth for the pain you gain for pain

Some bill of rights

Daring getaways, steamy masquerades

Famine of all wars, whores and escapades

Jack of Spades in silk brocades

Velvet nights in city lights

It’s a wide wide world out there

And life can be a love affair

Or a cage of sheer despair

You’re a choice millionaire

It’s a wide wide world out there

You can travel in your easy chair

So build your castles in the air

You’re a choice millionaire

Because no one needs any more confessions

Shadows cast without a streak of fear

Moments past, held so dear

A lock of hair, a touch of lip

A lashing whip

Subliminal love for the ones you hate

LOL as I abbreviate

Alleviate if you can relate to the pink slip

Of love unzipped

Minutes burning till seconds pop

Silhouettes dancing till the curtains drop

Stop before you lose your mojo

Your fear of heights

Hot passion flares every pipe dream

Concussion, blindness of a regime

A scream incites, the air ignites

The city lights

It’s a wide wide world out there…

So put a lacquer on your hunger

Parade the sky that you’re under

Without heedless impressions

No one needs more confessions

[x2]

It’s a wide wide world out there…

Poets Of The Fall Clear Blue Sky

I want to feel the sun shine

On my face like a new day’s just begun

And I’ll steal a moment’s fun

And reflect on all those days long dead and gone

The memories still rock my cradle

Yesterdays sing me a lullaby

I can’t fight it

It takes me back

To the days when you and I ran free of worries

Underneath the wide, clear, blue sky

I’ll never be the one, no

To regret the things that I have never done

And I’ll reason with, with myself till I no longer feel the need to justify

I can’t fight it

It takes me back

And I remember reaching high,

like borne on wings of sheer belief through my clear blue sky

Thinking ’bout the times we had

All our days in the sun

Memories now brilliant and mad

They still linger on

Can’t fight it

It takes me back

To the days when you and I ran free of worries

Underneath the wide, clear, blue sky

I can’t fight it

It takes me back

And I remember reaching high,

like borne on wings of sheer belief through my clear blue sky

Poets Of The Fall Hounds To Hamartia

A single kiss for your treasure

There just left at your door

Life has shown you no pleasure before

Double cross for a symbol

Name your rosary beads

You will nurture the fable till it bleeds

Bleeds for your love

No more tragic love for sale in the crooked gallery

High on acid love gone stale seems like fantasy

Just like magic Hubris leads, leads its hounds, hounds to Hamartia

What you eclipse makes your measure

What you leave reaches for you in your stead

Taking flaws for a gamble to get ahead

No remorse for the trouble spread

In the revolution

No more tragic love for sale…

Hit or miss you’ll be playing

Paying your dues cos you need the game all the same

Fame draws you like fireflies to the flame

Play all on red

No more tragic love for sale…

Poets Of The Fall All The Way / 4U

Seems to matter what I do, so I’m saving this 4 U

Cos it seems to be the last piece there is

And you haven’t had a chance yet to taste this

Fragments of a life you shouldn’t miss

Seems to matter what I say, so I’ll hold my tongue at bay

And rather use my mouth to kiss your frown away

So your doubts no longer darken your day

So you can hold your head up high come what may

So please remember that I’m gonna follow through all the way

Cos it seems to matter where I go, I will always let you know

That the place where I am is never far

You know, you’re not alone, don’t be alarmed

I’ll find you no matter where you are

So please remember that I’m gonna follow through all the way

Oh my love, if it’s all I can do, I’ll take the fall 4 U

Cos I will soar when I lay down with you and give my all 4 U

Poets Of The Fall Children Of The Sun

Parallel to life

There’s a wisdom that seems out of reach

Like a figure of speech

In a maze of white lies

So elusive it’s hard to recognize

With naivety’s eyes

It’s like running with a knife

The thought steals away with your peace

And high on that trapeze

You hold on to me

You hold on to me

And I’ll be singing you

Songs of tomorrow

And then dawn will follow

And our sorrows all undone

When you’re done with all the strife

When they echo the minds in the streets

You know your heart beats

A solitary call

For a change in the tone of it all

You’ll be scaling that wall

And the higher you climb

The more you can see of this life

On the edge of that knife

You hold on to me

Hold on to me

And I’ll be singing you

Songs of tomorrow

And then dawn will follow

And our sorrows all undone

Yeah, I’ll be singing you

Songs of tomorrow

And then dawn will follow

We are children of the sun

And you know you can take this story

Take your glory

Make your own way

Yeah, I want you to shake this story

Take your glory

Find your way

Make your own way

And I’ll be singing you

Songs of tomorrow

And then dawn will follow

And our sorrows all undone

Yeah, I’ll be singing you

Songs of tomorrow

And then dawn will follow

We are children of the sun

Poets Of The Fall Daze

Rolling down the free way, master to the speed of light,

Screaming up in the air, bursting through the night

No rest, I’ve stayed here too long, It’s time to move on

Reality’s a three way, a scenery defined

By tomorrow dubbed a mystery and the past just blurry lines

If there’s ever been injustice in my name, I bow unto blame

And you can give me everything I need this way

We’ll be loving till the first light of the day

Set the world on fire with bitter sweet desire

To chase away the night, let the whole world burn

Set the world on fire for bliss in sweet denial, oblivion and peace

Will you let me burn?

Drifting like a cast off, the shadows got it good

With constant companions, would that I could

Further afield my nemesis on stilts is gaining on me

So I crawl across the state line, to another state of being

Holding on for dear life to the better days I’ve seen

Long for the comfort of your loving arms, your passions, your charms

And you can give me everything I need this way

We’ll be loving till the first light of the day

Set the world on fire with bitter sweet desire

To chase away the night, let the whole world burn

Set the world on fire for bliss in sweet denial, oblivion and peace

Will you let me burn?

Did you ever feel your love eclipsing the sun

I give you the reason I’m still on the run

Disappear in the heavy glare of neon

And you can give me everything I need this way

We’ll be loving till the first light of the day

Set the world on fire with bitter sweet desire

To chase away the night, let the whole world burn

Set the world on fire for bliss in sweet denial, oblivion and peace

Will you let me burn!

Poets Of The Fall Drama For Life

I’ve got this madman in my mind

This prolific designer

And he’s working overtime

And he gets all wired up

Higher and higher

As we fly

We’re Poets of the Fall

Perfect, near fatal headlong dive

A blueprint for life

Blueprint your life

Aggressively primal

Cultural high

This mental versailles

Is much grander than the lies

You tell yourself to get

Through the night

Sentenced to drama

For life

He tears a stampede through my head

Wild and horny

Just one chance to kill it dead

But I will embrace it

Into the darkness

On we ride

To gamble is all

Perfect, near fatal headlong dive

A blueprint for life

Blueprint your life

Aggressively primal

Cultural high

This mental versailles

Is much grander than the lies

You tell yourself to get

Through the night

Sentenced to drama

For life

If all the isms and doctrines of life were a gentle breeze instead of that usual judgmental freeze

Would we all be as easily shanghaied to their cause, as now we seem to object to every clause

And would we have that unerring nerve to go after our deepest desires with a similar verve

Who would it serve?

Perfect, near fatal headlong dive

A blueprint for life

Blueprint your life

Aggressively primal

Cultural high

This mental versailles

Is much grander than the lies

You tell yourself to get

Through the night

Sentenced to drama

For life

Poets Of The Fall Cradled In Love

You had the blue note sapphire eyes,

To back up all those gazes

To pierce my guard and to take my soul off to faraway places

Told me I’ll never be alone,

‘Cause you’re right there

We took a gamble with this love,

Like sailing to the storm

With the waves rushing over to take us,

We were battling against the tide

You were my beacon of salvation,

I was your starlight

So don’t cry for your love,

Cry tears of joy

‘Cause you’re alive cradled in love

Don’t cry for your love,

Cry tears of joy

‘Cause you’re alive cradled in love

I kept the love you gave me alive,

And now I carry it with me

I know it’s just a tear drop from mother earth,

But in it I can hear a dolphin sing

Telling me I’ll never be alone,

I know you’re right there

So with the fire still burning bright,

I wanna gaze into your light

If I could see my fortune there,

You know how flames can hypnotize

Do I even dare to speak out your name for fear,

It sounds like, like a lover

So don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy

‘Cause you’re alive cradled in love

Don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy

‘Cause you’re alive cradled in love

Don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy

‘Cause you’re alive cradled in love

Don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy

‘Cause you’re alive cradled in love

Cradled in love

Cradled in love

Cradled in love

Cradled in love

Cradled in love

Poets Of The Fall Gravity

Here at the station, standing in the rain, lost in my train of thought

Looking around for a better time again, but yesterday ain’t running on this track

Unpredictable fortune, my past, lights up my future, at last, ending my torture

Like gravity like love,

You get up after you fall

Like gravity like love

I’m not afraid anymore

Like gravity like love,

You get up after you fall, I ain’t afraid no more

Out of no reason I’ve decided to stay, present a solution, to the problem,

Typical of me, that I concentrate on the destination so much that I miss the journey there and back

Unpredictable fortune, my past, lights up my future, at last, ending my torture

Like gravity like love,

You get up after you fall

Like gravity like love

I’m not afraid anymore

Like gravity like love,

You get up after you fall, I ain’t afraid no more

If gravity was love, if gravity was love, if gravity was love…

Poets Of The Fall Carnival Of Rust

D’ you breathe the name of your saviour in your hour of need,

And taste the blame if the flavor should remind you of greed?

Of implication, insinuation and ill will, ’til you cannot lie still,

In all this turmoil, before red cape and foil come closing in for a kill

Come feed the rain

’cause I’m thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust

Yeah, feed the rain

’cause without your love my life ain’t nothing but this carnival of rust

It’s all a game, avoiding failure, when true colors will bleed

All in the name of misbehavior and the things we don’t need

I lust for after no disaster can touch, touch us anymore

And more than ever, I hope to never fall, where enough is not the same it was before

Come feed the rain…

’cause I’m thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust

Yeah, feed the rain

’cause without your love my life ain’t nothing but this carnival of rust

Yeah, feed the rain

’cause I’m thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust

Yeah, feed the rain

’cause without your love my life ain’t nothing but this carnival of rust

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the world is burning

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the world is burning

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning
