Phantom Blue Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Going Mad (3:24)
Time is running faster
It�s out of our hands
No point in looking back
Don�t care where we�re going
Can�t stick around to see anything else
Despite confusion we haven�t got a chance

Running to nowhere
Told not to go there

(Chorus)
We�re going mad
We�re going mad
We�re going mad don�t you see
Don�t try to stop this
Just let it be

Can�t overlook this one
What�s to be said
Why all these shadows hanging around
No it�s not easy to comprehend
Been kicked too many times
The world�s upside down

Running to nowhere
Told not to go there
2. Last Shot (3:24)
Don�t close your eyes when you�re on the run
Nowhere to hide when they�ve got the gun
The world we�re living in could bring you down
Just hold on tight, keep your nose to the ground
They�re shooting words high and low
Can�t escape this battle zone
Now you tell me that you�ve heard it before
Can�t take the heat I�ll slam the door

(Chorus)
Could be your last shot (this could be your last shot)
You�ve got nowhere to hide
Could be your last shot (this could be the last one you�ve got)
So don�t close your eyes

The way you live is like a shot in the dark
Play it right it could take you far
Look at the world though lucid eyes
You can see through their disguise
In this world don�t lose sight
Sometimes it�s hard to hold on tight
We gotta find a way outta here
The animosity fills the air
3. Why Call It Love (4:13)
Why do they say it makes the world go �round?
From what I�ve seen it just goes up and down
What in the world could make you feel so sad?
I�m letting go of what I�ve never had

I can�t believe
Sometimes it�s hard to see
I fell for you and now it brings me to my knees

(Chorus)
Why call it love?
I call it pain
Why call it love?
Can�t you see what it�s done to me?
Love, love
Why call it love?
When hearts can turn to stone

Why do they say it would last so long?
From what I�ve seen it�s here and then it�s gone
It�s a fine line between love and pain
So much to lose and yet so much to gain

I can�t believe
Sometimes it�s hard to see
I fell for you and now it brings me to my knees
4. Frantic Zone (3:29)
Skylight�s dim, Sonics freight
Uncontrollable misfit, contractible fate
The seduction began, realized too late
Easy to see there�s no escape

A regression of time, an intrinsic state
Been sabotaged with too many weights
A solid approach to the tailored plans
To hold on to the ultimate game

(Chorus)
In the frantic zone
Taken hostage by insanity
In the frantic zone
Intangible security

Look around
It�s not so hard to believe
Hear the sounds
The answer is so hard to see

The showage of senseless attitudes
The masterminds all break the rules
The seduction began, realized too late
Easy to see there�s no escape
5. Slow It Down (3:19)
This danger zone
You get off on playing Russian Roulette
Your life�s so full of four lettered words
Once you get started you don�t give in

How much longer now
Will you hang around
How much longer now
You�ve got to

(Chorus)
Slow it down
You�re burning out the fire
Running out of wasted time
Slow it down
You�re shorting out the wire
Soon you�ll find you�re one step over the line

You can�t control such an overload
You�re always searching can�t find your soul
The stories on how to know me more
Once we�re together again and again
6. Walking Away (3:30)
Don�t know where I�ve been
Or what I had to gain
Sometimes I wonder
Was I to blame?

Four walls surround me
In a world that seems so cold
Still I keep trying
To get my story told

I can�t wait no longer
It�s time I move along
I�ve waited so long
Why keep hanging on?

(Chorus)
I�m walking away
Looking back at you
Got nothing to say
As I walk away from you again
It wasn�t easy
I�m walking away
And I�d do it all again

I can�t explain all you put me through
And I�m not afraid of living without you
If it means the end that�s what I�ll have to do
I can�t pretend �til the lies come true

I can�t wait no longer
It�s time I move along
I�ve waited so long
Why keep hanging on?
7. Fought It Out (2:46)
Ran out of reasons
It�s breaking me down
I can�t figure out
These things I�m feeling
Is this what it�s all about?
I was believing the things that you said
You had me going
This is the real world
Gotta keep my feet on the ground
On the ground

(Chorus)
Fought it out with you
Out to the end, with nothing to gain
And now we�re through
Fought it out, fought it out with you

I can�t keep thinking of these mistakes
Now it�s too late
Sometimes it hits me
And it�s hard to face
Hard to face
8. Never Too Late (3:31)
Been such a long time we�ve gone separate ways
I can�t believe I ever let you go
I gave my heart I gave you my soul
It felt so good to me
What we had was so unreal
Chained in a fantasy

Now that you�re gone
The walls are closing in
Still I�m alone
�Cause I gotta be sure

(Chorus)
It�s never too late to start it over
I remember what we had and I want it all back again
Never too late to start it over
It�s never too late to start it over.


I see you, can feel you standing by my side
Emotions between us tear me up inside
You took my heart, you took my soul
Left me standing in the rain
But what I feel I can�t control
Is driving me insane

Now that you�re gone
The walls are closing in
Still I�m alone
�Cause I gotta be sure

You can take a piece of my heart
You can take anything you want
You can get as close as you want
I�ll give you anything you need
9. Out Of Control (3:29)
Out in the distance
Outside my door
Seems like the world is burning
Out of control, don�t cha know
First they try to teach me
To play their games
If I live by their rules I know I�d
Surely go insane
This world�s to blame

So we�ve got to find a way
Look deep in our minds
How can the world go on
Blind leading blind?

(Chorus)
Out of control
This can�t go on these games we�re playing
Out of control
What can be done?
This world is out of control

Systems failing
Breaking down in time
Looks like we�re really not such
Clever minds, no not my kind
Feel it coming deep in the night
The life I�m living could fill me
Fill me with fright
