Lyrics

prenuclear age

we can talk

after the war

in that time

so i’m told

but, baby, you don’t know

all the things we will forego

and I hear so many hearts alive

beat along to pull the line

so many hearts alive

beat back along to pull the line…

pull the trigger, now it’s too late

you can’t take it back all the way

claim the age before it’s gone

prenuclear – let’s keep it on

any other age

dreaming of – any other age

 

we can talk

over the wall

in this city

built to fall

you know i’ll be on the street

a silver lining of defeat

and you ask the kids to pull the line

you tell them it will be fine

ask the kids to make it right

oh, now, now, put out this fire…

pull the trigger, now it’s too late

you can’t take it back all the way

claim the age before it’s gone

prenuclear – let’s keep it on

any other age

dreaming of – any other age

(take it all back now

the pieces, they fall out

take it all back now

the pieces, they fall)

any other age

dreaming of – any other age

 

 

elation

elation – bring awake the radio mind

elation – you take back all the wasted time

elation – such a host, these golden skies

elation – burn right through the stereo mind

feeling all the weight in the air

feeling all the weight in the air

feeling all the weight in the air

elation – this city walks a narrow line

elation – play like you can own the light

elation – burn right through the heart of time

feeling all the weight in the air

feeling all the weight in the air

feeling all the weight in the air

we’re taken in – by the west end

taken in – by the west end

elation – bring awake the radio mind

elation – you take back all the wasted time

feeling all the weight in the air

feeling all the weight in the air

feeling all the weight in the air

even if only there –

in your mind

there – in your mind

there

in your mind

we’re taken in – by the west end

playing out – on the west end

we’re taken in – by the west end

playing out – on the west end

elation – bring awake the radio mind

elation – you change the stereo world

 

 

fbm (fight)

if you’re completely locked down

you might not want to stick around

bars so cold and shut out

where is the light – where is the sound

fight the big machine

find a way to make it bleed

find a way to tell – all the people

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

all the trials that come ’round

is there a way to make them count

and the noises from inside you pound

you just need space to hold your ground

fight the big machine

find a way to make it bleed

find a way to tell – all the people

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

don’t say it, no, no

don’t think it – no, no

when you dare to think the words

the words will be heard

and all the time spent will be good

fight the big machine

find a way to make it bleed

find a way to tell – all the people

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

we’re gonna make it out

 

 

can’t get enough

loose mouth

loose change

play to me

bang, bang,

kids, you

sure know how to be

come ‘round

be strange

lay it all out to see

faded – faded

play to me

can’t get, can’t get

can’t get enough of it

no pills

no bombs

no more war to play

saw through

the truth

and you don’t need the game

break down

the wheel

what do you feed it on

can’t fold

your heart

what are you working for

faded – faded

play to me

can’t get, can’t get

can’t get enough of it

play it – play it

sounds so easy

can’t get, can’t get

can’t get enough of it

(and you say we break down)

my friend, you say that it’s all me

well hear this one out

can you afford not to be

not coming ‘round

faded – faded

play to me

can’t get, can’t get

can’t get enough of it

play it – play it

sounds so easy

can’t get, can’t get

can’t get enough of it

 

(nothing’s changed – I still feel the same)
