lyrics

#8 Breathing New Air:

Throw away the sheets love. Throw away the guns.
We did it all in the silent night, deaf to bleeding dreams.
I guess that I am not cut out for this, after all it seems;
Now the war has come and gone there’s nothing green to keep.
It’s not for me, it’s not for friends, it’s for you but you’re immune to teaching eyes that want to prove something you don’t see.

Tired of playing fools with you, I don’t mean no offence. Some get tired and some get strange,
Me, I’m passed my shelf-age best.
I used to fight you. I used to care.
Something changed in the melody now I’m breathing new air.

Garrisons of lonely eyes stare into the steam.
I’m lost between the gaze of them and the engine hot to leave. With heavy shot and powdered eye I’m fighting through the crowds. Really ought to sleep tonight; lay the jailbird down. Though half my heart you took away, none of yours I kept.
But that’s ok with me babe, I gave it to the best.


Tired of playing fool for you, I don’t mean no distress
Something cried in the distance, someone put it down to rest.
I used to fight you. I used to care.
Something changed in the melody now I'm breathing new air.

What’s misuse, just the sense of it - picking holes in stains. Though half I claimed in sentence mine, you’re still inspired to blame. For something hardly recognised by the minor hands of time. Something short with squinting eyes; dwarfed the fate of love. Now you call the shots on this aftermath, with all your fickle friends. When the commander pulls his blade out they say, “god bless little lamb”.

No, I won’t dress in my coloured best, with dreams of brick and slag. If love’s a game you can laugh about I guess I’m free at last. Diamonds are forever baby; nothing but the best.
I stole around the gauntlet, it left me bleeding from the chest. So throw away the prize love. Throw away the fight.
The more you’ve got to lose baby, the more you fear at night.
