Lyrics

THE BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS 

Don’t pretend you’re dreaming 
Don’t think you’re alive 
Don’t extend a hand to the evil deep in side 
Looking up the stairway 
Downward is the spiral 
No escape beside you 
You’re stuck here all the while 
What points you in the wrong direction? 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh
How do you harness 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
The beautiful darkness 
Seeing through the mind’s eye 
Vivid imagery 
Realistic in the moment 
Though a fading memory 
Don’t pretend you’re dreaming 
Don’t think you’re awake 
Don’t just lend a hand to the evil that you make 
What troubles you is disconnection 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
How do you harness 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
The beautiful darkness 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
Can you accomplish? 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
The beautiful darkness 
The energy inside our minds stretches our imagination 
Never thinking in real life the stuff that we could dream about 
Questions on the daily wake of why or how are infinite 
Pleading every night before I rest of how much I could do without 
What do you dream about? 
To take a leap of pure perception 
Could steer you in the wrong direction 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
How do you harness 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
The beautiful darkness 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
Can you accomplish? 
Oh-oo-oh-oo-oh 
The beautiful darkness

 

 

FLY INTERSTELLAR 

(instrumental)

 

 

U F O 

Time for adventure 
Let’s make a midnight run 
In to the stars 
New life and new worlds 
With hostile weather 
And lay in the baking sun 
Don’t wanna leave 
The toxic air we breathe 
Indefinitely 
Come with me 
Countdown 
Lift off 
Outter space 
Hyperdrive 
Don’t you wanna go 
Take a ride in my U F O 
Strap down 
Blast off 
Hyperspace 
Atmosphere 
Don’t you wanna go 
Let’s get outta here in my U F O 
Fly interstellar 
A new home for you and I 
We know It’s a one way ticket 
To live and die alone 
In through wormhole 
I hope we survive this trip 
Into the unknown 
A billion miles we’ve flown 
A hundred years we’ve grown 
You’re my chaperone 
Countdown 
Lift off 
Outter space 
Hyperdrive 
Don’t you wanna go 
Take a ride in my U F O 
Strap down 
Blast off 
Hyperspace 
Atmosphere 
Don’t you wanna go 
Let’s get outta here in my U F O 
Hiding out at the secret event 
Near the Devil’s Tower Monument 
Midnight comes and all arrive 
The mother ship wants you to step inside 
One more adventure 
Let’s scope the outter rim 
For intellegent life forms 
On a planet in a goldilocks zone 
We’ll make first contact 
And play the music of Earth 
Interplanetary party 
Don’t you wake me from this damn daydream 
Alien scenery 
So come with me 
Countdown 
Lift off 
Outter space 
Hyperdrive 
Don’t you wanna go 
Take a ride in my U F O 
Strap down 
Blast off 
Hyperspace 
Atmosphere 
Don’t you wanna go 
Let’s get outta here in my U F O 
Space flight 
Firefly 
Gravity 
Serenity 
Don’t you wanna go 
Hop inside my U F O 
NASA 
Satallite 
Voyager 
Pioneer 
Don’t you wanna go 
Spend ten light years 
In my U F O 
Yeah yeah yeah 
U F O 

“Second star to the right, and straight on till morning.”

 

 

FADING LIGHT 

I don’t wanna hurt you 
I just need to breathe 
But taking a life is such a tragedy 
I have to contemplate just what this does to you 
But with your consent it’s what you wanted to 
So hold me close 
My little girl of mine 
I’m sucking your soul for the last time 
So take me in Baby 
You won’t hurt any more 
Just relax child and watch the blood pour 
I know you feel cold but I will warm your heart 
A permanent fix with a small scar 
Take my hand we will live for all time 
We can walk in the shadows 
We are divine 
I’m falling apart on the inside 
I’ll hand you my heart on the outside 
I’m falling apart on the inside 
I will hand you my heart 
The moon is full and the night is young 
We are alive 
We are the only ones 
Hide in the night 
Face your fears 
To love again and then dissapear 
All alone for eternity 
When darkness calls it’s just you and me 
Final flight when the fire ignites 
One by one in the fading light 
Across the street not down the road 
I see your face everywhere I go 
I’m contemplating letting it all go 
I can’t contain myself 
All alone for eternity 
When darkness calls it’s just you and me 
Final flight when the fire ignites 
One by one in the fading light 
Oh fading, fading light 
I will hand you my heart 
One by one in the fading light

 

 

GOODNIGHT GRAY 

Good morning gray 
How are you today? 
A little bit brighter than yesterday 
Good morning blue 
How the hell are you? 
Same old story so what else is new 
(OOH) 
Good afternoon red 
Go get out of my head 
I’d rather be sleeping back home in bed 
Good evening green 
It’s so nice to be seen 
I used to be dirty but now I’m clean 
(OOH) 
Hello white 
Shining so bright 
Try as I might to make it through the night 
Hey there black 
Don’t’ give me no flack 
I’ll figure it out cuz I’ve got the knack 
(OOH) 
The clouds in the sky 
The fog in my eyes 
The sounds on the radio 
The sights are so bland 
Like the touch of a dead hand 
The smells of the city on to go 
(AH)  But when Im with you 
(AH)  The colors are in full hue 
Good morning gray 
Had another bad day 
I can’t erase the pain 
I wish it go away 
Goodnight gray 
I see you everyday 
For a while 
No denial 
So goodnight gray 
(OOH)
