Deep sea diver Man on wire You’re on fire Color faster Paint the light It’s alabaster Make the moon rise Make the stars shine Super loaded Secret coded Rock and roller You wanna meet at midnight To chase the light Miles to go, below, disaster Make the moon rise Make the stars shine Changeling Why did such a strange thing happen to you The main thing Hell or heaven you’re the same thing Once you knew The answers to The riddles and the questions It’s coming untrue It’s a whole new you There is no message, only some words Make the moon rise Make the stars shine Changeling Why did such a strange thing happen to you The main thing Hell or heaven you’re the same thing In the future skies are gray Never baby blue It’s a mess You’ll have to make do When the king of everything has left the building Then your love will sting And girls sing They sing, they sing Make the moon rise Make the stars shine Make the moon rise Better make the stars shine Changeling Strange thing You’re a changeling Such a strange thing

The right suit The right tie The right house The wrong guy Never saw it coming Tall drink Bright lights Big smile Something’s not quite right Draw back your arm, take your aim: It’s a real soft target Shoot for the heart, make your mark on a real soft target A killer drone, a civilian zone It’s a real soft target ‘Til they come for you... Move in Move fast The best things in life do not last It’s too late Too bad Long gone past happy or sad Turn it around, double it down: It’s a real soft target A safe bet, good as it gets It’s a real soft target The killing floor, you ask for more of a real soft target ‘Til they come for you... You’ve climbed until the air is thin: You’re a real soft target Stomach full, senses dulled: You’re a real soft target Something seems not quite right You’re a real soft target

Diving Bell 04:08
Hold my heart Like you’re holding a bomb You said “being lost Is where I’m from” Broken people …… [One step to the right] Find broken people …… [Into the light] I’m trying to surface …… [Three more to the door] While you’re sinking deeper. …… [Into the darkness] And I thought I knew you well I was wrong… You were never fine Beneath the water line In your diving bell The weight of water …… [Purple fades to blue] Carries you down ……[to white to see-thru] I'll bring the rope …… [Nowhere is the only] To drag you around. …… [place to be] Close the capsule …… [Everything I have] When it gets too much …… [is stolen] You can see forever …… [Everything I have] But never touch …… [is gone] Every gambler has their tell An indulgence they can’t sell You should take the time To float outside of your mind In your diving bell

Where does it come from, where does it go What is the heart’s desire, nobody knows You build a fire, rain begins to fall The happiest thing you can be in the world is gonna make you the saddest You touched the flame, now you’re going insane It’s a new kind of pain, you’re getting very small Love love love Love love love What is the power of two if it comes back to one You have to carry it forward Wish I could tell you it gets easier with time Somebody loves you but he’s going away nothing you say will make him stay There’s a gaping, bloody hole in his heart You can’t fill it With love love love Love love love You want to move on, you want to stay still, it’s a bad dream Look for the slipstream in the half light, in the gloaming And let it carry you home To love love love Love love love What is the power of two if it comes back to one You have to carry it forward Wish I could tell you it gets easier with time The truth of the matter is complicated, and you cannot see it That’s the hardest part, the hardest part Love love love Love love love

X-Ray Heart 03:32
First you've got to take your tongue-tied heart Tear it apart (part of me is floating, flowing like a river) Take it slow, take it fast, there's no map for where you're now (down to the ocean, out past the darkness) Get going now: it’s further than you think You’ve got to find your own way home They will shout they will laugh as you stumble on the path They will be unkind (i can feel the current, just below the surface) The will use what they can both their words and their hands Pay them no mind (Mine is the kingdom, searching for the glory) You always said you had an X-ray heart It's time to show the hidden part You're going to find your own way home
