Track Name: Out of Time
Know when, know when to try again
Know when, know when to try again
Decide to take that ride

CHORUS:
You’re out of time
And that is fine
Just please don’t ask
for some of mine

Know when, know when you’ve reached the end
Know when
You’re out of time
Just try again

Don’t look into her eyes

CHORUS

I warned you who knew better

Know when, my friend, know when to try again
know when, my friends, know when you’ve reached the end
decide

CHORUS
Track Name: So Alive
I don't know what colour your eyes are, baby
But your hair is long and brown
Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long
And you don't come from this town

My head is full of magic, baby
And I can share this with you
The feel I'm on a cross again, lately
But it's nothing to do with you

I'm alive
Oh Oh, so alive
I'm alive
Oh Oh, so alive

This drug makes me crazy
Makes me see you more clearly.
Oh, baby, now I can see you.
Wish I could stop,
Switch off the clock,
Make it all happen for you.

I'm alive
Oh Oh, so alive
I'm alive
Oh Oh, so alive

OOOOH
OOOOH

Don't know what colour your eyes are, baby
But your hair is long and brown
Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long
And you don't come from this town

My head is full of magic, baby
And I can share this with you
The feel I'm on top again, baby
That's got everything to do with you

I'm alive
Oh Oh, so alive
I'm alive
Oh Oh, so alive
Track Name: A Fate I Will Deny
I think it's safe to say
I'm so inclined to stay
won't peek my head too far
the reaper's blade will scar

wait I would advise

if this were up to me
I'd change the scenery
you say that's futility
I'll take my chance
you'll see

fate I will deny
to fail is not to try
this fate I will deny

Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

If that's how you are feeling
well it's my thought you're stealing
make room let's get to healing
been trying so long

if that's how you are feeling
then it's my heart you're stealing
if that's how you are feeling
then it's my heart you're stealing
let's talk let's get to healing

fate I will
fate I will deny
this fate I will deny
this fate I will deny
let's talk let's get to healing
Track Name: A Symptom of Life
don't search for simple minds
or that's all you will find
don't search for simple minds

it's the same thing
out of nowhere
it's a symptom of this life
back from the dead
once then again
that's a symptom of his life
look away
and that's when they'll stray
it's a symptom of her life
pay for the blame
with your own dime
then list the symptoms of this life

back from the dead
wasn't the end
that's a symptom of this life
get in the ring
take your best swing
drop a symptom of your life
up from the dead
wasn't the end
up from the dead
once then again

let's re-energize
don't search for simple minds
or that's all you will find

don't look the ceiling's on the rise
cover up your eyes
just let me sleep through this decline
I'm sleeping all the time

don't search for simple minds
or that's all you will find

let's re-energize

don't search for simple minds
or that's all you will find
Track Name: Replenish
I've decided I'm divided
between my kindest
and my blindest
tendencies

compromised and
undermined I did
by myself sure
makes this worse to

tell me I'm wanted
stop me from wanting
in this sometimes twisted world
I've seemed the maddest
tell me I've hurt you
stop me from hurting
in this somewhat wicked world
I stand as witness

Undecided
still divided
by myself sure
makes this worse so

tell me I've hurt
stop me from hurting
in this somewhat wicked world
I stand as witness

stop me from something
I have not finished
take me to dinner
help me replenish
Track Name: The Rain (Version 2.010)
Who's gonna walk away tonight
Who's gonna call it just the same tonight
Who's gonna lay themselves to waste tonight
Who's gonna fade just like the rain?

Fade away, fade away

Who's gonna turn and walk away tonight
Who's gonna call another name tonight
Who's gonna lay themselves to waste tonight
Who's gonna fade just like the rain? (repeat)

Fade away, fade away
Fade away, fade away
