Silverchair Across The Night

Across the night

It was the moon that stole my slumber

Across the night

I fell in love with people sleeping

I fell tired

Asleep in a golden ocean

Eyes perspired

A spike in my fascination

I don’t mean to make you cry

But these feelings run right through the night

And I’ll only make you cry with these feelings

Across the night

It was the moon that stole my slumber

Across the night

I fell in love with people sleeping

Across the night

Across the night

Across the night

I hugged a man’s arthritic shoulder

Sleepless, untamed

Without a leash on the light around me

I don’t mean to make you cry

But these feelings run right through the night

And I’ll only make you cry with these feelings

Across the night

It was the moon that stole my slumber

Across the night

I feel in love with people sleeping

Across the night

Across the night

Across the night

I hugged a man’s arthritic shoulder

I hugged a man’s arthritic shoulder

So let us be married

And have another baby

Cause I don’t want to be lonely

I just want to be alone

Yeah, let’s just get married

Shouting, bay, bay, babies!

Oh, you’ll never sleep at all

I don’t want to be lonely

Oh, you’ll never sleep at all

I don’t want to be lonely

I just want to be alone

Never seen the sun shine

From higher points than sunrise

I don’t want to be lonely

Never seen the sun shine

From higher points than sunrise

I don’t to be lonely

I just want to be alone

Alone

Alone

Silverchair Blind

I need to get out.

There’s something wrong ’round here.

I have no doubt

We’re all really down from fear

Everything’s dark,

And I cannot find

What I’ve been looking for,

So I have to say I’m blind.

But he cannot see

But he cannot see

Yeah…

If you do

Shed a tear,

Don’t come to my place because I,

I won’t be here.

There’s no love lost between you and me,

And that’s the way that I like it.

I wanna live life like a normal man,

And I think I can, yeah.

But he cannot see.

Yeah, he cannot see, he’s blind!

ohh…yeah…

ooh…fuck…yeah…alright…

I’m blind.

Ohh, I’m blind.

Silverchair All Across The World

Underneath the shelf cracks appear in thick enamel

In this laps excuse for wasting time

I wait for signals shooting stars

I’d scrape through every branch

Coz I need to come down

Underneath the home

I lived in I was a page in someone’s book

And know one asked me why

The page was fifteen stories high

I’m underneath that home wondering why

All across the world

There are things we need to forget and forgive

Sometimes we have to try and shed the damage we don’t need

Oh justice shake your head

I’m wasting my time

We can break this drought

Wanna tell ya I love ya I need ya in the night

Sometimes I get so full

I wanna tell ya I’m feeling alright

I’m shaken to the bone

And on my way home

Adjust an omen at the door

Singing baby wont you please get a hold without it

And while you sit there on the phone tell me baby

I’m a liar you don’t seem to care what I care about and baby it’s a shame

To be wasted

All across the world

There are things we need to forget and forgive

Sometimes we have to try and shed the damage we don’t need

Oh justice shake your head

I’m on my way home

Silverchair Black Tangled Heart

Maybe your luck has changed

Settle down

Maybe I’m just deranged

And on the rebound

Maybe love was the thing

Holding me back from all

Maybe I’m just the thing

To break my own fall

Take the rope to my heart and fall

You may just be the last before you

See the black tangled heart fall

Maybe departure’s good

Makes room for more

Start to mass produce

For a chance to ignore

Maybe you’ll kill yourself

Before I get a turn

Maybe I’ll fall in love

And never learn

Take the rope to my heart and fall

You may just be the last before you

See the black tangled heart fall

Take the rope to my heart and fall

You may just be the last before you

See the black tangled heart fall

Silverchair Cicada

When he was just a little boy,

He only had one favourite toy.

And he had nothing on his mind,

He never left anything behind.

No.

As he got older, things got worse,

Like he’d been born under a curse.

Things started to fall apart,

They weren’t like they were at the start.

No, it’s like a civil war.

Growing up,

It’s like a civil war.

Don’t turn away,

It’s something you can’t ignore.

Growing up,

It’s like a civil war.

And now that he was in his teens,

He’d started to learn what life means.

Problems were still appearing,

They didn’t look like disappearing.

No.

[Chorus]

Silverchair Cemetery

Need a change

Not to imitate

But to irritate

All the ones who hate

I may be late

Always seem to get the wrong date

Well, I guess it’s fate

I live in a cemetery

Full of good will and integrity

You see, I have no specialty

Here’s your warning

I’ll give you click click boom

I live in a cemetery

I need a change

Not to imitate

But to irritate

I live in a cemetery

Silverchair Ana’s Song

Please die Ana

For as long as you’re here we’re not

You make the sound of laughter

and sharpened nails seem softer

And I need you now somehow

And I need you now somehow

Open fire on the needs designed

On my knees for you

Open fire on my knees desires

What I need from you

Imagine pageant

In my head the flesh seems thicker

Sandpaper tears corrode the film

And I need you now somehow

And I need you now somehow

Open fire on the needs designed

On my knees for you

Open fire on my knees desires

What I need from you

And you’re my obsession

I love you to the bones

And Ana wrecks your life

Like an Anorexia life

Open fire on the needs designed

On my knees for you

Open fire on my knees desires

What I need from you

Open fire on the needs designed

Open fire on my knees desires

On my knees for you

Silverchair Acid Rain

Falls down slowly,

Seeps into the ground,

Isn’t just flowing water,

Won’t stop until your brain is found.

Seeps into your little green eyes,

’til it meets your brain,

Runnin’ through all of your brain cells,

’til it drives you insane.

Acid…Acid Rain

Falls down slowly,

Seeps into your mind,

Falls down slowly.

Silverchair Abuse Me

Need to ask a question

Calling out my name

Nothing seems to bother

Wish I had a clue

C’mon abuse me more I like it

Well I don’t think you like me

Well I hate you as well

No one seems to like you

Wish I couldn’t tell

C’mon abuse me more I like it

C’mon keep talking ’cause it’s true

Throw the sailors overboard

Silverchair Anthem For The Year 2000

We are the youth

We’ll take your fascism away

We are the youth

Apologise for another day

We are the youth

And politicians are so sure

We are the youth

And we are knocking on death’s door

With a mind that could be so sure

Never knew we were living in a world

With a mind that could be so small

Never knew we were living in a world

And the world is an open court

Maybe we don’t want to live in a world

Where innocence is so short

We’ll make it up to you

World who cares at all
