Erase the Slate Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Erase the Slate (3:47)
Contradiction it's an expedition into darkness
Aggravation is the inspiration into madness
Soon the day will come when all the world will finally see
It's a matter of time / the sand will run out
Waiting for the rising sun
Erase the Slate
Erase the Slate
My religion is a mind condition as it turns out
Hesitating while my soul sits waiting through my blackout
Soon the day will come down when I'll reflect on all those years
My perfect world / sublime and surreal
Waiting for the rising sun
Erase the Slate
Erase the Slate
Erase the Slate
Erase the Slate
Time and time remember when
Life forgave my call
Too much pride / could not repent
Can't escape at all
Erase the Slate
Erase the Slate
Erase the Slate
And start again
Erase the Slate[Erase the Slate]
Erase the Slate
And start all over again
Erase the Slate
2. Change the World (4:35)
Talk to me 'bout fantasy
You talk to me 'bout love
You filled me with empty promises
You promised sky above
You ask me what I'd do for you
Give my life and more
But would it keep you satisfied
Baby I'm not sure
I change myself most everyday
But you don't reply
How can we survive
I can't Change the World
If I tried would it make you happy
I can't Change the World
This time I can't Change the World
From soft lips you speak to me
How's it gonna be
Everyday's a different story
Changing all the time
You come to me with promises
I listen as you speak
But the promise that you want the most
Is not for me to keep
You leave me on this withered vine / now
Stripped away and torn
Left with only fantasy
Dreams of nevermore
I can't Change the World
If I tried would it make you happy
This time I can't Change the World
Never said that I held the answers
I can't Change the World
I'd give my spirit if you tried
A fortune lost a heart denied
I come to you in your sleep
My heart is yours for only you to keep
And when the days they pass me you will see
I can't Change the World
If I tried would it make you happy
I can't Change the World
This time
I can't Change the World
I never said I held the answers
I can't Change the World
This time
I can't Change the World
Change the world
3. Maddest Hatter (4:38)
Talking to my rabbit friend he seems so bright indeed
A conversation over tea
Then he told me / I'm standing all alone
There's a crowd of people eating at my throne
Is it just me / is it just you
Or is it everyone
I want the ordinary life
When the sky is dark I feel like it's light
I want the ordinary life
I must confess / I'm the Maddest Hatter
Of them all
And it's so contrary that I know I shouldn't
Watch the rainbows circle my friend Mary
I wish that I could fly so I can see much more
I wish that I could see things
Like the others do
If it's just me / then it's just you
I'm not the only one
I want the ordinary life
When the sky is dark I feel like it's light
I want the ordinary life
I must confess / I'm the Maddest Hatter
Of them all
I want the ordinary
I wanna be with my friend Mary
I want the ordinary life
When the sky is dark I feel like it's light
I want the ordinary life
I must confess / I'm the Maddest Hatter
Of them all
I want the ordinary life
When the sky is dark I feel like it's light
I want the ordinary life
I must confess / I'm the Maddest Hatter
Of them all
4. Drown (4:53)
I been left in the crossfire / sacrificed to love and hate
Out of ammunition to regain my mental state
I found myself adrift upon an endless sea
Of lies and bitterness / horizon out of reach
I see the starts that shine / Reflection in the waves
I need to find that distant shore
Before I Drown
Slip beneath the waves and Drown
Takes me to my grave
Of love and heartache / there's got to be a way
That I can save myself before I Drown
Too much conversation can erode our little minds
My emancipation comes with solitude at night
As the world sleeps / I contemplate all that's been done
I profess no innocence / I've held - held that smoking gun
I found myself atop a sea of ocean blue
Cast from a world that left me too
To Drown
Slip beneath the waves and Drown
Takes me to my grave
Of love and heartache / there's got to be a way
That I can save myself before I Drown
I'll Drown
Slip beneath the waves and Drown
Takes me to my grave
And Drown
From the pouring rain
Of love and heartache / there's got to be a way
I can save myself
Save myself Before I Drown
5. Shattered (4:40)
Lonely / why do I feel this way
If you're so in love with me / why do you stay away
Heartache / breaking down my pride
The closer that I get to you the more I hurt inside
Feeling I've been wrong about you
Try to justify
I'm feeling empty inside
I see the heartache you hide in your eyes
I'm feeling empty inside
Shattered
Shattered / trying to get to you
Left my heart in broken pieces / haven't been so true
Leave me / in my barren world
When I try to give you all I hear the cry of love
There's no words and there's no time for
All the reasons why
I'm feeling empty inside
I see the heartache you hide in your eyes
I'm feeling empty inside
Shattered
I'm feeling empty inside
I see the heartache you hide in your eyes
I'm feeling empty inside
Shattered
Spoken word: Yellow walls / I light another cigarette
Rainbow dreams crossing through my eyes
Shattered pictures in my mind
Love lost / lorn
Shattered / shattered / shattered / yeah
6. One (3:10)
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one-uh
No is the saddest experience that you'll ever know
Yes it's the saddest experience you'll ever know
Cause one is the loneliest number / that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number / wouldn't work for two
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
It's just no good anymore since you went away
Now I spend my time / making rhymes of yesterday
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
It's just no good anymore since you went away
[Number] One is the loneliest number
[Number] One is the loneliest number
[Number] One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
[Number] One is the loneliest number
[Number] One is the loneliest number
[Number] One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
7. Who Believes (4:23)
Tried to go to sleep last night
But too many things were in my head
Then the sun began to rise
Still I haven't gone to bed
Why do all these questions dance around inside my head
All I want to do is close my eyes and go to bed
Let tomorrow bring the answers that I need instead
And let it go / let it go
Is there anybody Who Believes
That the questions and the answers will come easily
And this sadness that I felt will finally set me free
Set me free / set me free
Hope that I can sleep tonight
Close my eyes and slip away
Dream about some other place
Where the sun shines in my head
Out of all the people in my life I love you more
And I hope that time will find a way to make it sure
That we stay one and the same
Is there anybody Who Believes
That the questions and the answers will come easily
And this sadness that I felt will finally set me free
Set me free - Set me free
You're the only person in my life
And I hope that time will find a way to make it right
And whatever happens you will know
I love you more
Is there anybody Who Believes
That the questions and the answers will come easily
And this sadness that I felt will finally set me free
Set me free / set me free
8. Voice of the Soul (4:12)
Can you see the soul / through a window in your mind
Can you see the darkness that was left me over time
Bordering on sadness / no tranquility
Look through my mirror and you'll see
[So long] A vision come and gone
[Inside] Nothing was clear
Saving grace / Forgotten road
I was lost / but now I'm home
Saving grace / a ray of hope
When I hear a Voice of the Soul
Sold my religion / sold my candles too
Knees have been bleeding / praying over you
I search the heavens / all I ever see
Dust from the ashes / misery
[Rise up] Sleeping with misfortune
[Temptation] A mirror of myself
Saving grace / Forgotten road
I was lost / but now I'm home
Saving grace / a ray of hope
When I hear a Voice of the Soul
When the light shines above me
And casts a shadow of myself
Look to skies that surround me
Embrace the one that speaks inside
Delivered unto self
Saving grace a ray of hope
When I hear the voice [Of the soul]
[Voice of the Soul]
Saving grace
[Voice of the Soul]
When I hear the voice
Hear the Voice of the Soul
9. Crazy Mary Goes Round (3:00)
There's a girl next door with a leather coat
And she looks pretty good to me
My friends all say that you better watch out
There's a side of her you haven't seen
Still I took a ride / it was late at night
We were cruising along on her motorbike
Everything was right / til Crazy Mary went down
So let me tell you about Mary
[Mary] Crazy Mary Goes Round
Let me tell you about Mary
[Mary] Crazy Mary Goes Round and round
Round and round
Called my doctor and I tried to explain
Cause it didn't make sense to me
Seven different sides and I've seen them all
One for everyday of the week
She gave me a scare / she was combing her hair
A long conversation there was nobody there
Does anybody know / what Mary's talking about
So let me tell you about Mary
[Mary] Crazy Mary Goes Round
Let me tell you about Mary
[Mary] Crazy Mary Goes Round
So let me tell you about Mary
[Mary] Crazy Mary Goes Round and round
Round and round
[Mary] Crazy Mary Goes Round
Funny thing about Mary
[Mary] Crazy Mary Goes Round and round
Round and round
Round and round
Upside down
10. Haunted Lullabye (4:47)
You - you took me to a place I'd never been
High - much higher than before
Now - the vision of you haunting me again
Your spirit chills me to the core
Sing to me / Your twisted melody
Mesmerized / It never seems to end
Another Haunted Lullabye
I don't know the reason or the rhyme
Another Haunted Lullabye
Steal away the cradle in my mind
Gone - and left me with insatiable desire
Still - I can't escape your trance
Take - your pleasure when you play with my lament
You cast a shadow bound romance
Sing to me / Your symphony of woe
Deafening / oh will it ever end
Another Haunted Lullabye
I don't know the reason or the rhyme
Another Haunted Lullabye
Steal away the cradle in my mind
I can't stand the way your silence leaves me broken
And my loneliness is playing on the strings of my despair
Another Haunted Lullabye
I don't know the reason or the rhyme
Another Haunted Lullabye
Steal away the cradle in my mind
11. In Your Honor (4:31)
I lit a candle in your honor today
Prayed for forgiveness for the things that I said
And now I wake up and see I was wrong
All those years wasted / now come and gone
How many years have I been this way
The lines grow deeper / time fades away
Now etched in stone don't have the strength anymore
To break down these walls again
I lit a candle In Your Honor today
Everything will come around again
And you never know that maybe someday
Everything will come around again
Now I see you on the other side
Sunshine raining down upon your face
You look so beautiful that place where you live
You walk among your dreams we talked about
So I stand here and I stare
In my garden of neglect
Never noticed it before
That it's winter all the time
Was too busy staring at
Your garden that you grew in time
I can see it took a lot of years
Your colors fill my mind
I lit a candle In Your Honor today
Everything will come around again
And you never know that maybe someday
Everything will come around again
Even though the years keep passing / I reflect
About the one I truly loved and pushed away
Suddenly I stop and feel
That winter rain I know so well
And close my eyes
Wish you all the best
And you never know
I lit a candle In Your Honor today
Everything will come around
And you never know that maybe someday
Everything will come around
I lit a candle In Your Honor today
Prayed for forgiveness for the things that I said
And you never know that maybe someday
Everything will come around
12. Untitled (1:16)
There's no reason you can't understand me now
There's no point in living up among the clouds
Tiny innuendos circling your mind
Come to find out you've been left so far
Left so far behind

And all the time you thought it's turning out so well
You turned your back on me
And wished me straight to hell
(That's where I'll go if you want me to)
I'll see you there
(I'll see you there when your life is through)
I'll see you there
Soaring higher now you're bound to come unglued
You're supported by a love that was untrue
Write your story on a single grain of sand
Heed the warning when you let go
Let go of my hand
A promised kiss upon your lips for not to tell
You turned your back on me
And wished me straight to hell
(That's where I'll go if you want me to)
I'll see you there
(I'll see you there when your life is through)
I'll see you there
So write your story on a single grain of sand
Heed the warning when you let go
Let go of my hand
A promised kiss upon your lips for not to tell
You turned your back on me
And wished me straight to hell
(That's where I'll go if you want me to)
I'll see you there
(I'll see you there when your life is through)
I'll see you there
(That's where I'll go if you want me to)
I won't care
(I'll see you there when your life is through)
I'll see you there
I'll see you there
