Mile Zero

Up on the straightaway
Mile zero on the sign
We used to steam the lanes
Acceleration so fine
We used to freelance dance
Yeah, we had our nerve
You used to bend for me
Like a hairpin turn
 
Next stop was a real love
We never made it on time
Next world is a better place
If you take all the signs
 
Take me back
Mile zero
Take me back
Mile zero
 
And all the radio waves
Crashed over us
I tell you, every song
Was another rush
And when I searched your eyes
I saw the lighthouse rays
And I would walk on water
Just to see your face
 
Cities in the sun
It was a mecca for a time
You find a Midsummer Night's dream
If you take all the signs
(If you take all the signs)
 
Take me back
Mile zero
Take me back
Mile zero
 
Take me back
Mile zero
Take me back
Mile zero
 
I let you ride away
That's when I forgot your name
The sands of time in my eyes
And the summer in flames
 
Next stop was a real love
We never made it on time
Next world is a better place
If you take all the signs
(If you take all the signs)
 
Take me back
Mile zero
Take me back
Mile zero
 
Take me back
Mile zero
Take me back
Mile zero
 
Take me back
Way, way back
Mile zero
 
Take me back
Take me back
Mile zero
 

Mere Mortals

The trapdoor waits for everyone.
You slip through the cracks in the ground.
Your love is never in vain.
Your love is the sun and the rain.
 
And like the zebra stripes,
you're neither white on black
or black on white.
Like Roman candles, we burn so brightly,
then fall from the sky.
 
We are mere mortals.
We, we are mere mortals.
 
Can't help but live beyond all our means.
Try hard to dream all the right dreams, yeah.
(Dream all the right dreams)
This conflict is useless,
useless as money in the jungle.
You can't fight Utopia's muscle.
 
You are the food of the gods to me now,
I can't let go.
A thousand lives I would live beside you,
but I know:
 
We, we are mere mortals.
We, we are mere mortals.
 
You are the food of the gods to me now,
I can't let go.
A thousand miles I have walked beside you,
but now I know:
 
We are mere mortals.
We, we are mere mortals.
We, we are mere mortals.
 
(Your love is the sun and the rain).
We are mere mortals.
(Your love is never in vain).
(Your love is [?])
We are mere mortals.
([?])
 
We, we are mere mortals.
 

Love Equation

Empty blackboard
Pose the problem
Thoughts in my head
No way to stop them
 
Blueprint of you
Another of me
Overlapping lines
But no geometry
 
Gonna figure it in
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is the love equation?
 
Said oh
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is your love equation?
 
She speaks
In hieroglyphics
She runs deep
Deep as the blue Pacific
 
And oh
Is she complex
I dig and delve
But I remain perplexed
 
I'm gonna figure it in
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is the love equation?
 
Said whoa
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is your love equation?
 
Oh, I'm under the ether
And I can't reason
Like I could yesterday
And oh - said 'Z' is for zero
The last omega
And no more yesterday
 
I'm gonna figure it in
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is the love equation?
 
Said oh
Try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is your love equation?
 
What is your love equation?
What is your love equation?
 
Figure in
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is the love equation?
 
Said oh
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is your love equation?
 
Figure in
I try to figure it out
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is your love equation?
 
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is your love equation?
 
I gotta add it all up (add it up)
What is your love equation?
 

No Simple Cure

No simple cure
There is no simple cure
No simple cure
There is no simple cure
 
Once a happy creature of habit
Sleepwalking through the halcyon days
You come and cause a disruption
Infect, dissect, walk away
 
I found no pill could ease the hunger
Anything to get you out of my mind
So I put my money on a wise man
I should have known that he would reply:
 
No simple cure
There is no simple cure
No simple cure
There is no simple cure 
(There is no simple cure)
 
I tried a major operation
I put myself down under the knife
I tried paying off the generals
And little people that threaten my life
 
No simple cure
There is no simple cure
(There is no simple cure)
No simple cure
There is no simple cure 
(There is no simple cure)
 
Gotta think now with a clear head
Be sharper than a spearhead
Make me wait until I'm near dead
 
You can hold your breath underwater
You can try hanging upside down
You can find yourself king on the mountain
All you'll hear is the lonely wind howl:
 
No simple cure
There is no simple cure 
(There is no simple cure)
No simple cure
There is no simple cure 
(There is no simple cure)
 
No simple cure
There is no simple cure 
(There is no simple cure)
No simple cure
There is no simple cure 
(There is no simple cure)
 

Time and Again

You lead a primitive life
Of fire and ice
If you're a troubled youth,
It doesn't show in your eyes
 
You've got unwelcome guests
They've stayed too long
But you'll be talking to the wall
Even after they've gone
 
The more you see, the more you want
Time and again, take all I've got
The more you break, the more I mend
Time and again
 
When the gates crashed down,
You were living on top
No one to answer to, yeah
No one to tell you when to stop
 
Now it's a Hollywood joke
It's a prank of fate
That you'll be only too glad
To say goodbye to that place
 
The more you see, the more you want
Time and again, take all I've got
If you find one, you'll look for ten
Time and again
 
The more you lose, the more I send
Time and time again
 
(Time and again)
 
When the rain seeps through
And the calendar's lost
Now the shadow's flying home
No matter what the cost
 
The more you see, the more you want
Time and again, take all I've got
The more you break, the more I mend
Time and again
 
I told you once it never ends
Time and time again
 
Time and again
Time and time again
 

Turn of the Tide

There's a tear in the sky
where the blue used to be.
There's a mystery guest
instead of me.
Oh, you slip back downward,
lose your grip,
fall close to the fire,
jump back so quick.
 
Night falls on a dead street.
I think you're better off alive.
Just a handful of love, girl...
 
...is the turn of the tide
(handful of love is the turn of the tide).
...is the turn of the tide.
(Nothing to lose, nothing to hide).
Gotta break out from inside.
(Handful of love is the turn of the tide).
 
Get to the heart of the matter.
No, don't go around.
Don't keep it confidential,
say it out loud.
Rigid isolation
will cuff your wrist,
gonna hold you in possession,
make you shake and twist.
 
There's a hairline fracture
in the world outside.
Just a handful of love, girl...
 
...is the turn of the tide
(handful of love is the turn of the tide).
...is the turn of the tide.
(Nothing to lose, nothing to hide).
Gotta break out from inside.
(Change is breaking out from inside).  
...is the turn of the tide
(handful of love is the turn of the tide).
 
Oh, you can keep pretending.
You can let it ride.
Just a handful of love, girl...
 
...is the turn of the tide
(handful of love is the turn of the tide).
...is the turn of the tide.
(Nothing to lose, nothing to hide).
Gotta break out from inside.
(Change is breaking out from inside).  
...is the turn of the tide
(handful of love is the turn of the tide).
 
(Handful of love is the turn of the tide).
...is the turn of the tide.
(Nothing to lose, nothing to hide).
Gotta break out from inside.
(Change is breaking out from inside).
...is the turn of the tide
(handful of love is the turn of the tide).
 
(Handful of love is the turn of the tide).
(Handful of love is the turn of the tide).
(Handful of love is the turn of the tide).
