The Answer Leave With Nothin’

I’m turning my back on wasted ground

There’s a hunger at my door

I got better things to do than make you proud and I know that I want more

I can see it in your eyes, there’s a lot you need to know

It should come as no surprise, there’s a distance I have left to go

No I don’t mind, if I leave with nothing

No I don’t mind

Got my back against the wall, but I was never born to fall

And if I leave with nothing, I don’t mind at all

No I never thought I’d find a life like this, it’s a circus everyday

So cover me in my electric bliss, is there any other way?

Can I hear you cry

You’re never gonna die

So tell the truth, what you see, is nothing you think I’m born to be

It’s isn’t much, the price I pay, maybe you’ll understand some day

No I don’t mind, if I leave witn nothing

No I don’t mind

There’s a whistle gonna blow, telling me all I need to know

And if I leave with nothing, I don’t mind at all

I don’t mind at all

Listen

How many people pass the test, how can they know what

I possess in ray heart

Give them an inch, they’ll take the lot, tell you they worked for what they got

Feed you another pack lies, think they’ve the right to criticize my life…style

No I don’t mind, if I leave with nothing

No I don’t mind

Gonna run before I crawl, cause I was never born to fall

And if I leave with nothing, I don’t mind at all

Aghh….I don’t mind at all

Aghh….No I really don’t mind, do you?

The Answer Dead Of The Night

Belfast town, could you bring me round?

Like the street light swingers rope upon the ground

So we ready for a peace but we’re prepared for a war

I got a black code warning splashed against the wall

In the cool red light, in the dead of the night

We wash the pain away

As the night turns into morning and the morning into day

We wash away, wash away, wash away the pain

There’s a girl that I see all alone in the street

She’ll be crying on the morning that we meet

With her ripped black lace, she’s got her hair out of place

But a pure intention, perfection in her face

In the cool red light, in the dead of the night

We wash the pain away

As the night turns into morning and the morning into day

We wash away, wash away, wash away the pain

And I return to you with a promise to renew

I will never lose sight of the cool red night

As I kill your fragile body I can never know your name

We wash away, wash away, wash away the pain

Everybody’s got demons, demons in the night

So you better start believing everyday’s a fight, yes it is

Everybody’s got demons, demons in the night

So we better start believing, we can make it all, alright

We wash away the pain

As the night turn to morning and the morning into day

We all, reach for another day

We wash away, wash away, wash away, you know we got to

Wash away, wash way, yes we got to wash away

Wash away, wash away the pain
