We Are the Others tracks

Lyrics

1. MOTHER MACHINE

Incomplete, cast in the concrete
Walk the city streets
Granite sky
My machine built the factories
Feeds the worker bees
Get in line

Round and round and round
The wheels come down
Dreaming of the steam
The pounding sounds
Round and round and round
The wheels come down
Won't you electrify my soul
Intensify it all

Little girl in a concrete world
Artificial hurt
In your eyes
You won't see any living trees
Any flower fields in my time

Round and round and round
The wheels come down
Dreaming of the steam
The pounding sounds
Round and round and round
The wheels come down
Won't you electrify my soul
Intensify it all

I like the plastic people paper world
The silver moon, the iron sun
I'll fold you paper flowers little girl
For you'll never see a real one

Round and round...




2. ELECTRICITY

I can't forget the faces
I can't forget the sounds
I can't forget, can't get the fever down
I guess imagination
It makes it come around
Whenever lightning strikes
And thunder sounds

We shared nothing
But storm, but wind
One rainswept moment
Stuck within

Day by day
I walk the distance alone
Walk the distance alone
Day by day
I fight the fever alone
Fight the fever alone

I can't forget the shaking
Your hands over my own
Both hot with fever
To our very bones
I do regret the feeling
That we will never know
What might have happened
Had we not let go

Day by day
I walk the distance alone
Walk the distance alone
Day by day
I fight the fever alone
Fight the fever alone

I can't forget the faces
I can't forget the sounds

Day by day....




3. WE ARE THE OTHERS

I'm walking but Sophie tonight,
She lives in the air that I breath ;
I can't get it out of my mind
How you were left to bleed...
Was it how you dress ?
Or how you act ?
I can't believe
How they could act so violently,
Without regret,
We will not forget...

[Chorus:]
We are the others,
We are the cast outs,
We're the outsiders
But you can't hide us,
We are the others,
We are the cast outs
You're no longer on your own
If you feel mistreated,
Torn and cheated,
You're not alone,
We are the others
(we are the others)

As simple as air in your lungs,
As simple as words on your lips,
And no one should take that away,
No one should have killed this
Now with our heads up high,
We'll carry on,
And carry out,
And we won't let them get us down,
Wear us out,
'Cause we are not alone...

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Normal is not the norm,
It's just the uniform...
(We are the others)
Forget about the norms,
(We're the outsiders)
Take off your uniform,
(We are the others)
We are beautiful,
(We are the others)

[Chorus]
We are the others,
We are the others.




4. MILK AND HONEY

The sun was golden flame,
The air was sweet like honey;
The grass was soft we made
A pledge to keep on running.
The clouds were shied away,
The air was warm and damp;
Oh on this golden day,
You ripped my heart away.

It was the dawn of may,
A lonely blackbird singing,
Now the same melody,
Brings back the pain...

[Chorus:]
(bring back the pain)
You'll get it, regret it
Take my advice !
(bring back the pain)
You'll get it, regret it
If you are wise !
As long as you're forgetting all the wrong
Please look over your shoulder twice

The moon was silver light,
The air was sweet like honey.
We said our last goodbyes,
Now what are we becoming ?
Outside the blackbirds sing,
But you keep down the blinds,
'Cause each time you kiss her lips
They'll sing my lullaby.

[Chorus]

Always look twice

[Bridge:]
Not so long ago,
Now we are sober and cold
And there's a braver insane
Gotta let all brim
Just gotta let all brim this pain

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]

(You played with my heart,
You ripped it appart)
Always look over your shoulder twice.




5. HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT

Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me til I'm down and out
I'm black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot

It was the last thing on my mind
Well could it be, could it be,
At the wrong place, the right time
Bittersweet surrender
I let the face of concrete meet with mine

Way to kick me when I'm the ground
Way to kick me when I'm already down
When you thought I'd turn around
I turned the other cheek

Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me til I'm down and out
I'm black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot

You made my peaceful bubble burst
Well you don't just leave me
Destroy me first
Bittersweet surrender
I let you mark the spot

Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me til I'm down and out
I'm black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me til I'm down and out
I'm black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot

We're falling to pieces
One by one you're going down
We pick up the pieces
Or leave them scattered on the ground
This will be your final chance
To fight for what we've got

Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me til I'm down and out
I'm black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot
Give me all that you've got
Hit me til I'm down and out
I'm black and blue
Now for the love of God
Hit me with your best shot




6. I WANT YOU

Been trying to deny it
Oh what to do
When I'm such a fool for you

I want you
So bad I want you
I want to hold you babe you look away what did I say?
I want you

For better or for worse
I will make you mine
Each warm heart gets cold in time
No follow like a shadow
You won't get through
The web I have spun for you

I want you
So bad I want you
I want to hold you babe you look away what did I say?
I want you
So bad I want you
I want each step you take I will not bend I will not break

I want you bad
I want your innocence
I want your bitterness your loneliness
I want you (I want you)

I want you bad
I want your innocence
I want your every breath in life or death I want you

No-one could see it coming
A tragic day (a tragic day)
How did that car get in your way?

I got you
At last I got you
She'll never see your face forever bound in my embrace

I got you
At last I got you
She'll never send you thrills if I can't have you no-one will




7. WHERE IS THE BLOOD

Carved and gave you my heart
Love will tear us apart
Unavoidable the break
Carved and gave you my heart
Love will tear us apart
We both realised from the start

[Bridge:]
All my expectations are sane
So why do I take the blame?
You yourself were king of them game
So why do I pay for your pain?

[Chorus:]
If I hurt you so much
Then where is the blood, where is the blood?
If I hurt you so much
Then where is the blood?
If I hurt you so much
Then where is the blood, where is the blood?
If I hurt you so much
Then where is the blood?

Undeniably yours,
I'm forever and more
Do you buy these lies you said?
Undeniably yours,
I'm forever and more
When I caught you in the act

[Bridge + Chorus]

Can you believe
I still think of you
Can you believe
I still dream we could turn around
But I forgave forgot too many times
Can you believe
I still think of you
Can you believe
I still dream we could turn around
But I forgave forgot too many times

If I hurt you so much
If I hurt you so much
If I hurt you so much
Then where is the blood, where is the blood?
If I hurt you so much
Then where is the blood?




8. GENERATION ME

Here I am in all my majesty
And there is nothing you won't get to see
Come along and I'll give you my world
In one-hundred-forty characters

Don't you try to analyse
We are just ways to reach the stars
Can't you see it's generation me
I don't need anyone or anything
I'll make it alone
Can't you see it's generation me
We don't need anyone or anything
Just leave me alone

On and off? I spend my time in vain
In getting everyone to know my name
All I know is my face looks fuckin right
From this certain angle certain light

Don't you try to criticise
No crime a product of our time
So here I am [x3]

Can't you see it's generation me
I don't need anyone or anything
I'll make it alone
Can't you see it's generation me
We don't need anyone or anything
Just leave me alone




9. BABYLON

Easy now
We don't need this
Take a breath
And believe it's
Just a phase
That we're going through
I try to shout
But my words go in and out
Did you even hear me say
That I still love you

We are losing our way
Can't you hear what I say
Like a child, calling out
In the night

We're lost in Babylon, Babylon
Time is slipping away
Holding on, it won't be long
Until the dawn of the day
Lost in Babylon, Babylon
Still we need to believe
When love is gone
We're moving on
Not a long, long way from home

Back to back
We're to proud to face the facts
Though we sleep in the same bed
There's no coming though
Face to face
I can see you through a maze
Of the words we spoke in vain

You know this will go out of hand
If we don't understand
This confusion of tongue
Feels so wrong

We're lost in Babylon, Babylon
Time is slipping away
Holding on, it won't be long
Until the dawn of the day
Lost in Babylon, Babylon
Still we need to believe
When love is gone
We're moving on
Not a long, long way from home
Lost in Babylon

There's a right to your wrongs
There's a truth in my lies
I can't hear from your words
But I see in your eyes

We're lost in Babylon....




10. ARE YOU DONE WITH ME?

This city drinks and roars
Each word so meaningless
Each word, especially yours, echoes inside my head

[Bridge:]
Why can't you see
I won't let you get your way
Let you get the best of me
I just need to know
Are you done with me?

[Chorus:]
So are you done with me
And if you won't you just let me be
I'm trying to understand you keep me believing?
I cannot believe it

This city drinks and screams
This appum? never end
This city made of dreams
My dreams have turned to sand

[Bridge + Chrous]

So are you done with me
Now you wanna sleep?
Did you realize that I can't be all you need
Are you done with me
Now you wanna sleep
Love is gonna die and die again

[Chorus x2]

This city drinks and roars




11. GET THE DEVIL OUT OF ME

I don't know what to feel, I don't know what to say
Ooh, I don't know what to do, what makes me treat you this way

Oh I get nerve in my bones or I get nerve in my heart
Why don't you leave me alone before I tear you apart?

I'm no Jesus Christ, I'm the one mistake that you love to hate
I apologize, it's your destiny to get the devil out of me

Oh I don't know what to do, it always ends the same way
Though I've been here before, I know the rules to this game

And though I try not to lose, in the end I will fall
Better to have you in tears than not to have you at all

I'm no Jesus Christ, I'm the one mistake that you love to hate [2x]
I apologize, it's your destiny to get the devil out of me

If you think I'm hard to handle (you give up so easily)
I just need a good example (to be what I used to be)

Get the devil out of me

I'm no Jesus Christ, I'm the one mistake that you love to hate
I apologize, it's your destiny to get the devil out of me




12. NOT ENOUGH

Judgement is easy
You pick a side and a comfortable lie
Heavy the burden
When every victim is self-defined

Try to understand it's harder to apologize
When all committed crimes
They're just in our minds

How hard I try
It's not enough
To clear my mind
It's not enough
I'm the jury, I'm the judge
And I committed all the crimes
How hard I try
It's not enough

I walked away, and left you bleeding
As I kicked the mud off my feet
I lay on the ground and watched you leaving
A heart fights for every beat

Try to understand it's harder to apologize
When all committed crimes
They're just in our minds

How hard I try
It's not enough
To clear my mind
It's not enough
I'm the jury, I'm the judge
And I committed all the crimes
How hard I try
It's not enough
