Track Name: So Obscure
So Obscure

Every time you leave me,
I hate to see you go.
‘Cause every time you do,
You take the best of me.

No, no more letters.
No meeting of the minds.
There’s just no life with you,
And there’s no life without.

Yeah, you keep me hanging on
To a lyric in a song.
Oh, outside your doorway,
All there is is stone.

None of this is open.
None of this is clear.
All the ways are barred.
Why so obscure?

Oh, always outside!
Oh, always outside!
Oh, always, always...
Oh, always outside!

I’ll sit inside the cloisters,
Of my own design,
Surrounded by the things,
I will never change.

And I’m standing in their doorways,
I’m standing in the rain,
Blood upon the stonework,
Blood upon the frame.

Once I wanted something.
Once I had something to give.
Now it’s all just heartache.
Now it’s all just shame.

Oh, always outside!
Oh, always outside!
Oh, always, always...
Oh, always outside!

Repeat
Track Name: Out Here
Out Here

It’s just a matter of time, something’s got to break.
It’s just a matter of course, if we don’t get mired.
And it’s such a stupid route to take.
But I guess we knew that, yeah we knew that from the start.

Oh, no, I – oh,
I’ve no compass home.
Oh, no, I – oh,
Don’t leave me out here!

It’s just a matter of time, but time we don’t have.
It’s just a matter of course, the best-laid plans.
Was it all a lie? The whole damn time…
‘Cause I cannot fathom if it was a joke!

Oh, no, I – oh,
I’ve no compass home.
Oh, no, I – oh,
Don’t leave me out here!

Ooh…
Out here,
Oh, out here, oh!
Track Name: Mirabelle
Mirabelle

I, I have been lonely far too long.
I, I have been floating far too long.

And nothing you could say
Could ever make fall out of love with you.
And nothing you could do
Could ever make me come on back to you,
Oh, back to you.

Oh, you are the light that plays upon my wall.
Oh, you are the light in an otherwise dark world.

And nothing you could say
Could ever make fall out of love with you.
And nothing you could do
Could ever make me come on back to you,
Oh, back to you.

I – I have been floating in darkness.
I don't think the pills are working anymore.

And nothing you could say
Could ever make fall out of love with you.
And nothing you could do
Could ever make me come on back to you,
Oh, back to you.
Track Name: Right
Right

There must be some kind of mistake.
It’s not supposed to end this way.
After all wasn’t it you who said that
Love will find a way?

Someone slept on the job.
Someone forgot to maintain.
This is not the right order of things – what happened to
You and me always?

If he loves you like I love you,
Then how could I complain?
If he loves you like I love you,
Then it’s alright by me.

The guard’s asleep at the gate.
They let the devil escape.
But there’s no devil and there’s no hell
That we don’t make for ourselves.

Baby I know that there’s a plan.
But you and I will never know it.
And I know he can’t love you like I do,
But maybe he’ll love you better.

If he loves you like I love you,
Then how could I complain?
If he loves you like I love you,
Then it’s alright by me.

Repeat

Then it’s alright by me.
Then it’s alright, oh, it’s alright,
Yeah, it’s alright by me.
Track Name: Lost
Lost

God help you if you lose the path
Laid out so clearly by mom and dad.
God help you if you’ve felt a spark
Behind doors that should have stayed locked.

A scary place when no one’s on your side.
All that night you just cried and cried.
It’s your life but nothing’s guaranteed,
Staring down storm clouds on your wild-eyed steed.

And I remember what you said –
I’m a lightning rod it’s true.
Or a ship out on the sea,
Tossed so easily.

Now
I am lost.
I am lost.
I am lost, lost, lost.
I am lost.

A dirty trick from the very start.
In all these ruins where’s your sacred heart?
God help you if you’ve come apart.
Without your Beatrice it’s easy just to rot.

And if you wander into the woods,
There’s no law here it is understood.
Your life was forfeit from the day you start
Tearing down all the idols in your heart.

And I remember what you said –
I’m a lightning rod it’s true.
Or a ship out on the sea,
Tossed so easily.

Now
I am lost.
I am lost.
I am lost, lost, lost.
I am lost.

Repeat
Track Name: A Blunt Object, Oh Robert
A Blunt Object, Oh Robert

Should have been,
Oh, a poet.
But I have become
A blunt object.

It’s a sin.
Always has been.
To come this far,
Can’t turn back now.

Can’t turn back now.
Can’t turn back.
Can’t turn.

Now I am become death.
Now I am become death.
Now, oh, I’ve undone the clasp!
Now I am become death.

What’s it worth,
All my work?
Would you had seen
What I’ve seen.

If you could
Crack open the world,
Like a locket,
Would you do it?

Would you do it?
Would you do it, oh?
Would you?

Now I am become death.
Now I am become death.
Now, oh, I’ve undone the clasp!
Now I am become death.
