Track Name: Fire Out On The Motorway
I've never seen the fire burning out on the motorway
Or took a ride on a train that was going the other way

I've only got myself, only got myself to blame

We won't get to see the world come down
By then all we'll be is a decaying sound
The only thing you can call your own
Is that sense of loss when you're all alone

What we wanted, man, it won't come true
There's nothing out there watching over me or you

I've only got myself, only got myself to blame

We won't get to see the world come down
By then all we'll be is a decaying sound
The only thing you can call your own
Is that sense of loss when you're all alone
Track Name: Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid
I used to believe in everything I'd see
That I was right for you and you were right for me
But you said things change in such a hurry
That's how it goes, best not to worry
Now I still lie awake in my bed
Thinking some things are better left unsaid

Time's been playing tricks on me
It slowly takes away all the mystery
And all the memories seem to slow me down
Sometimes I just wanna say let's turn around
And live life in reverse instead
But some things are better left unsaid

How long will it be 'til we fall apart
How long will it be 'til you see what's in my heart
I'm not what you want, no I'm just a ringer
But you know the song, it out lives the singer
It was just an idea, something in my head
But some things are better left unsaid
Track Name: Got To Get Away
What the hell did you do?
We're not welcome no more
One hundred eyes follow you
from pictures on the wall
I think you've made it clear
There's nothing left to say
Got to get away from here
Away from here

Your mother was still a kid
When rock 'n' roll was born
But you can't learn to live
From the old records no more
I think you've made it clear
There's nothing left to say
Got to get away from here
Away from here
Track Name: The Long Night Is Over
Last few hours I've felt blue
'cause all the things we said we'd do
I guess I'll have to leave them all to you

The TV's glow won't keep me warm
Can't help but think I've been here before
It's here one minute but gone come dawn

But the long night is over
And now everything moves slower
Everyone moves slower
Track Name: You've Got Nothing Left To Get Off Your Chest
You've got nothing left to get off your chest
So whatever you say now goes down as theft

I don't have to believe in fate
To know you'll get yours one of these days
The more you've got, the more you've got to lose
What happens next is something that you choose

You never used to have to try so hard
Now you only fear what doesn't leave you scarred

I don't have to believe in fate
To know you'll get yours one of these days
The more you've got, the more you've got to lose
What happens next is something that you choose
Track Name: Crepe Paper Crown
I must confess I don't care what you think
If it wasn't you it'd be someone else driving me to drink
And it's a crying shame
How we always try to blame
Someone else

And it's not you and it's not me
It's just the way it has to be

At some point I'll take responsibility for my actions
Rather than pretending like they never happened
And I'll go down, down, down
Wearing a crepe paper crown
That doesn't fit

It's not you and it's not me
It's just the way it has to be
It's not you and it's not me
It's just the way it has to be
Track Name: Earthling Brains
At the end of the day
We'll go the same way
And all end up
At the bottom of the lake
Earthling brains
All mixed up on the bottom of the lake

A new empire's installed
Where the last one falls
We kid ourselves
It'll all be okay
Earthling brains
All mixed up onthe bottom of the lake

All mixed up on the bottom of the lake
All mixed up on the bottom of the lake
All mixed up on the bottom of the lake
Track Name: I Know What I'm Doing
I've stepped aside
And looked for a place to hide
I've given up without a fight
And faded into the night

I know what I'm doing
I know what I'm doing

I've turned to the drink
More times than I care to think
I've waited for the fight to begin
Then picked the side I thought would win

I know what I'm doing
I know what I'm doing

But today I stuck to my guns
I will live with what I've done
Cause today I stuck to my guns
At least that's one good thing that I've done

But today I stuck to my guns
I will live with what I've done
Cause today I stuck to my guns
At least that's one good thing that I've done

But today I stuck to my guns
I will live with what I've done
Cause today I stuck to my guns
At least that's one good thing that I've done
Track Name: I'll Leave A Light On For You
Your magazines lie on the floor
Your dressing gown hangs from the door
Last night's dishes, next to the sink
I'd drink your tea but it's peppermint

I'll leave a light on for you
When you're out there on your own
I'll leave a light on for you
When the bastards have all gone home

I don't know what to do
Except leave a light on for you

If you want a world to make your own
You've got to start it when you're at home
But when you get in you can't think straight
You can't stay up 'cause it's already too late

I'll leave a light on for you
When you're out there on your own
I'll leave a light on for you
When the bastards have all gone home

I don't know what to do
Except leave a light on for you

I don't know what to do
Except leave a light on for you
