Submitted by level 휘리언       Last modified by level 휘리언
1. Road Salt Theme (0:45)
[Instrumental]
2. Softly She Cries (4:18)
She pours herself another glass of wine.
Tells herself yet another time she's fine.
But earlier today she lost an hour.
A gaping hole just like.
Inside her.
Inside her.
Whenever a plane is passing by.
Or migrating birds fill up the sky.
Something is stirring deep inside.
She doesn't know why but.
Softly she cries.
Softly she cries.
She wears that smile another day in life.
For all we know another perfect wife.
But sometimes she's just gazing into nowhere.
An empty face just like.
She's not there.
She's not there.
Whenever a plane is passing by.
Or migrating birds fill up the sky.
Something is aching deep inside.
She doesn't know why but.
Softly she cries.
Softly she cries.
Somewhere inside her there's a child.
Longing to break away and fly.
But she is just letting life pass by.
Whenever a plane is passing by.
Or migrating birds fill up the sky.
Something is breaking deep inside.
She doesn't know why but.
She starts to cry.
She starts to cry.
Softly she cries.
She starts to cry.
3. Conditioned (4:30)
Never thought that you were conditioned.
Never thought that you could be sold.
Or controlled.
I'm the TV being on in the background.
The girl who used to like you in school.
I'm the one who's making you feel like.
You are nobody's fool.
But you live by my rules.
So if heaven is a place for thee.
Then it's all me!
I'm the kid who's laughing at your complexion.
I'm every Bob and Steve and Diane.
I'm promotion plan.
You are?
Oh yeah.
I'm the dirty cash in every election.
The winners writing your history.
Nudging you just ever so slightly.
I am spoof, spam and spin.
And you're letting me right in.
So if heaven is awaiting thee.
And sweet Jesus the Lord.
Will be holding thee.
Then I'm him!
And if you reject me.
And fight to remain free.
And try to keep your own.
You'll find a life of misery.
But if you embrace me.
And oppose the fighting few.
And make my needs your own.
You will be just fine.
'Cause I will be holding you.
I will be holding you...
4. Healing Now (4:34)
Heal me now.
Remove these old scars from my soul.
Heal me now.
Unhinge this dry skin from my bones.
And even though I can't forget the many times I've cried.
And even though I can't forgive the many times I've died.
I am healing now.
And I still kick the dust from this road.
And I'm still alive.
Just a little less so.
Than before.
Heal me now.
And wash the old tracks from my road.
Heal me now.
This prodigy walked himself old.
And I'm healing now.
And I'm trying to find my way home.
And I'm still alive.
And I just thought that you should know.
That perhaps I'll cry.
And perhaps I will die.
But for now I'm still alive.
Just a little less so than before.
Just a little less so than before.
Just a little less so than before.
Just a little less so.
Than before.
5. To The Shoreline (3:03)
I'm far from sober.
And she's far from sane.
When she takes my hand and she pulls me away.
She leads me down to the shoreline.
She leads me down to the shoreline.
She leads me down to the sea.
She pulls me into the water.
And then she whispers to me:
“Love, you know that I can make you stronger.
Love, you know that I can make you brave.
But there's one thing that you must remember:
That I am too far gone for you to save.”
Sand through her fingers.
The night slips away.
She gave me her body.
But never her name.
I followed her to the shoreline.
I'd follow her to the grave.
Two sinking ships in the darkness.
And we are much too close to break away.
And I know that she will make me stronger.
And I know that she will make me see.
And I know that she will make me younger.
But I don't know what more she'll do to me.
And she said:
“You know that I can make you stronger.
Love, you know that I can make you brave.
But there's one thing that you must remember:
That I am too far gone for you to save.”
6. Eleven (2:28)
I run my calm on fumes.
I run my calm on fumes.
I've let you have your way around.
But I'm warning you.
I'm warning you.
You push me just that one more time.
And I'm done with you.
Oh I'm done with you.
Down to the bone.
I go with the wild.
You're down to the bone.
I go with the wild.
Eleven.
Eleven.
I run my calm on fumes.
I run my calm on fumes.
I've made my peace with cut and bruise.
A long time ago.
Used to be so small.
But now I've listened to your last excuse.
See I'm stronger now.
So much stronger now.
All muscle and bone.
I go with the wild.
All muscle and bone.
I go with the wild.
Eleven.
Eleven.
Eleven.
I go with the wild.
You're down to the bone.
Eleven.
I go with the wild.
You're down to the bone.
Eleven.
Down to the bone.
Eleven.
Muscle and bone.
Eleven.
I go with the wild...
Eleven.
You're down to my bone.
Eleven.
I go with the wild.
7. 1979 (2:53)
It was '79 and the world seemed more kind.
And it was still okay to be modest.
The sixties were gone but their soul lingered on.
And the eighties were still just a promise.
And I remember me and you.
Two children of six still playing with sticks.
And whatever we found in the forest.
Our grandpas were strong and our parents still young.
And the world seemed a little more honest.
And I remember me and you.
All still fine.
1979.
Left behind.
1979.
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
'Cause I remember.
Me and you.
8. The Deeper Cut (6:14)
All my life I have been afraid.
All my life scared to lose my way.
All my life led me to today.
The day when I must learn the hardest way.
Every step leading to this day.
The day I learn to lose and fail.
A deeper cut into the flesh of life.
A sharper kind of knife.
A deeper cut into the throat of grey.
Come take me far away.
Come take me far away.
Lead me astray.
The deepest cut will never really mend.
The deepest cut might kill you in the end.
The deepest cut is playing not to win.
It's what you hear in every word I sing.
It's beauty in the ugliest of things.
It's birds that fly with broken wings.
A deeper cut into the flesh of life.
A sharper kind of knife.
A deeper cut into the throat of grey.
Come colors lead the way.
Come colors lead the way.
Into the wild.
Into the wild...
Today I go beyond control.
Beyond all purpose aim or goal.
To win my soul.
'Cause today I choose to lose my way.
To fall and fail.
I choose the wilderness today.
Into the wild...
9. Mortar Grind (5:49)
Emelie is sad
Emelie is sad
Emelie is sad
She used to be glad
Now Emelie's been had
Emelie's been had
Emelie's been had
She might never be glad

Oh, but there is something deep inside her
Oh, if we could only see inside her

Now she's mine, all broken inside
A product of your fine
MORTAR GRIND
Every crime is seeping inside
Until they're all mine
Burn them away

Jenny used to smile
Jenny used to smile
Jenny used to smile
Now she'll only hide
Jenny's in denial
Jenny's in denial
Jenny's in denial
She might never smile

Oh, but there is something deep inside her
Oh, I know 'cause I have been inside her

Now she's mine, all broken inside
A product of your fine
Mortar grind
Every crime is seeping inside
Until they're all mine
Burn them away
Burn them away --

I used to be mine
I used to be mine
I used to be mine
Now I'm feeling blind
I'm too deep inside
I'm too deep inside
I'm too deep inside
This mortar grind --

Now it's mine, all broken inside
A product of their fine
Mortar grind
(Burn it away)
All this vile
Sulphur and brine
I keep deep inside
(Oh) Burn it away
Burn it away
Oh, burn it away
Burn it away
10. Through The Distance (3:00)
When I was a child
I saw her every day
I never dared to touch her
Scared to break the spell
And now the years have passed us by
And all that could have been is left behind 'cause.
I loved her safe from a distance.
Every day a million people flow the street
Their faces blank they talk but do not ever meet
They all have important things to do
They all have things to watch on TV 'cause.
They all watch life safe from a distance.
But I want it.
And I need it.
Come and touch me.
Come and reach me.
Through the distance.
'Cause we all live life.
Safe from a distance.
But my heart will bleed.
Through all this distance.
And my voice will cry.
All through the distance.
11. The Physics Of Gridlock (8:43)
I: Gridlock (All Is Mine)
Silently I sit on this road.
Sifting the dust through my hands.
To feel that I belong.
Silently I weep for my soul.
There's always been something I need.
To feel that I am whole.
I'm taking a trip down the line.
Watching this new state of mind:
“All is mine!”
Silently I weep for mankind.
At some point we cut every rope.
To touch the sun.
And suddenly.
And silently.
Like hot air balloons.
Our minds took to the skies.
Hovering above luscious fields.
With a beautiful view.
But this hunger for the ground.
Inside.
And every red-light in town.
Is screaming for lost and for found:
“All is mine!”

II: The End
We're all longing to be home.
We're all longing to be home.
Invincible young and strong.
But we lost it all.
When we turned life into a road.
A direction towards a goal.
Ending where no one really wants to go.
And so my friend.
Welcome to the end.
All who won't pretend.
All who cannot mend.
All who lost themselves.
On Life's dusty shelves:
No one ever wins.
We're but mortal kings.
Of passing things.
But I see a better man.
His feet on his father's land.
His hand in his mother's hand.
He still belongs.
He's lying there on the shore.
He never asks where to go.
'Cause his is a grounded soul.
He'll always know.

III: On Nous A Donné La Vie
Je suis la mer.
C'est pourquoi je dis.
Pour tour mes frères.
Pour tous mes amis.
Je vous donne la misère:
Je vous donne la vie.
Je vous donne la misère:
Je vous donne la vie.
Vous voyez tout en moi.
Vous voyez un dieu.
Je me vois en toi.
Dans chaque lieu.
Je vous donne cette croix.
Je vous donne cette fleur.
Je vous donne cette croix.
Je vous donne cette fleur.
Nous partageons ce sentiment d'impuissance.
Toujours jeunes filles et garçons sans défense.
Silencieusement nous allons.
Silencieusement nous passons.
On nous a donné la misère:
On nous a donné la vie.
On nous a donné la misère:
On nous a donné la vie.
On nous a donné la vie.
On nous a donné la vie.
