Amnesia

this noise is blinding
mannequins of men
soul mate finding
over and again
dancefloor winding
stranger binding
this noise is blinding


if you forget yourself
there's nothing more to say
so take my hand in silence
and we'll both run away


that drunken stagger
empty glasses
a boastful bragger
hand stamp passes
the simple swagger
the olden classes
a drunken stagger


if you forget yourself
there's nothing more to say
so take my hand in silence
and we'll both run away


a taste so bitter
shining shoes
the glaring glitter
all to lose
you're such a quitter
never choose
a taste so bitter

if you forget yourself
there's nothing more to say
so take my hand in silence
and we'll both run away


keys

ending start
snapping strings
crying heart
all it brings

try for more
focus out
close the door
painful drought


i tried to catch the fragments
as it all fell apart
i tried to catch the fragments
to recreate the start
but these hands werent meant to hold
what touched they then turn cold
but i tried to catch the fragments
and piece together your shattered heart


familiar ache
unfixed gaze
start to break
lifes a haze

take the keys
open door
through the breeze
live for more


i tried to catch the fragments
as it all fell apart
i tried to catch the fragments
to recreate the start
but these hands werent meant to hold
what touched they then turn cold
but i tried to catch the fragments
and piece together your shattered heart
