Compliment

Now, I've taken the side
Of a beautiful calm
Can you see this disguise
Fading to a resolve

And there it goes, my innocence
While gathering up a compliment
And here I lie with words to swear
There's something more than the world out there
The world out there

And hesitation compounds
I've nothing left to sustain
My worries here have allowed
A momentary refrain

And there it goes, my innocence
While gathering up a compliment
And here I lie with words to swear
There's something more than the world out there
The world out there

And there it goes, my innocence
While gathering up a compliment
And here I lie with words to swear
There's something more than the world out there

And there it goes, my innocence
I'm dying here for a compliment
And here I lie with words to swear
There's something more than the world out there
The world out there
The world out there

December

Why drink the water from my hand?
Contagious as you think I am
Just tilt my sun towards your domain.
Your cup runneth over again.

Don't scream about
Don't think aloud
Turn your head now baby
Just spit me out
Don't worry about
Don't speak of doubt
Turn your head now baby
Just spit me out

Why follow me to higher ground?
Lost as you swear I am.
Don't throw away your basic needs,
Ambiance and vanity.

December promise you have unto me
December whispers of treachery
December clouds are now covering me
December songs no longer I sing

Run

Are these times contagious
I've never been this bored before
Is this the prize Ive waited for
Now with the hours passing
Theres nothing left here to insure
I long to find a messenger

Have I got a long way to run
Have I got a long way to run
Yeah, I run

Is there a cure among us
From this processed sanity
I weaken with each voice that sings
Now, in this world of purchase
I'm going to buy back memories
To awaken some old qualities

Have I got a long way to run
Have I got a long way to run
Yeah, I run
Yeah, I run

Have I got a long way
Have I got a long way
Have I got a long way to run
Have I got a long way to run

Yeah, I run (have I got a long way to run)
Yeah, I run (have I got a long way to run)
Yeah, I run (have I got a long way to run)
Yeah, I run (have I got a long way to run)
