Bubble

I can feel my heart float
Drifting past your window
Today I watched the clock unwind
It happened just in time

I can float now in a bubble

I can be the ocean
I can be the sky
I’m a soul in motion
All my love survives

I can float now in a bubble

Watch it pass me – float in a bubble
Always happy – float in a bubble

Witnesses and Criminals

We’re witnesses and criminals
We don’t leave it alone
Our world is our prison
We will run it hard and cold

Sound and light will be our might
If we don’t break we will be alright
Save the mass exodus from what they have become

Eye for an eye for an eye for an eye for an eye for an eye for an eye

We are the murder murdering murders

It’s not enough to put them back in their cage
Hold them down and quiet their rage
Shed your doubt and let the punishment out
Down!  Shut em down!

We’re witnesses and criminals
We love it, we love it
We’re witnesses and criminals
We own it, we own it

I can’t save myself alone

The Race Is Still Alive

Fire in the sky and a blanket of stars
we lay down
A king is just a man who meets a man’s fate
with a crown

Float away waiting for the sun to take you home
Yesterday we entered and we left the world below

Here it comes the wave has just arrived
Gravity let go of me so I can finally fly
Take your leave, you won’t be satisfied
You’ll fight the will to live while the race is still alive

You have been born just to be torn from home
We all come in the way we go, alone

We’re just in a moment barely time to think nothing is steady
Nothing is permanent it’s ok it’s let yourself sink no one is ready


The Wreckoning

All you’ve got to lose exists in a shared truth
If we’re gonna learn we gotta glow until we burn

Boot straps up from the waistband down
Lipstick deep kissing ground
One way in and one way out
An eye on the prize and an eye on the scout
If we’re gonna live we gotta glow until we burn

Take my hand
Leave no doubt
Take my hand
We’ll find out

We run with all we bring
By star light shots will ring
All hail the reining king
Unleash the wreckoning

All you’ve got to give exists in a shared truth
Love, a waterfall turns brittle bones to youth

All rise and meet your fate
Live now, it can not wait

The Man Who Stole The World

I dream about flying, floating above
But I would crawl for you
I’m hungry for life and thirsty for love
But I’d give in if you were through

Take a step outside, I will be your guide
Just be the ocean be the tide
And if you’d just concede, together we’d be free
To grow and we grow til we decide

Lay to waste the hollow dream
I’ll stick with us and I’ll believe
Unlike the fading stars, I’m absolute
I’ll be the man who stole the world to give to you

Where on earth can we feel this way
Where we live unbound by time and space
Take A chance for a better life
A life well lived ends with nothing to give

There’s a path into a world you never knew
Just be the ocean be the tide
And if you’d just concede, together we’d be free
To grow and we grow til we decide

Whatever you want from me
It will make it be
Whatever you want from me my love

Lay to waste the hollow dream
I’ll stick with us and I’ll believe
Unlike the fading stars, I’m absolute
I’ll be the man who stole the world to give to you

In The Next Life

When the light went out in you
There was no more I could do
All I ever knew went up and away
I have no right to choose
Who come and go too soon
A plan is a mistake from the moment it’s made

No one is saving anyone from anything
We just bare witness to the act
No one is saving anyone from anything
Go on and give me up go ahead and don’t look back

I’ll see you in the next life
don’t say it’s over
I’ll see you in the next life

It’s all a lie

We all will stand in line
And all we’ll do is time
Whatever we came for was never there

When ashes turn to dust
We must do what we must
everyone needs all that you can spare

Just be here now

The Man Is Me

I wanna know when I’ll free myself
I wanna know like no one else
It’s a one way road from what I see
Working in a circle and I can’t break free

I wanna know how to strike it down
I wanna know how to stop it now
Cast it back from where it came
And let us not forget its name

I believe I’ve discovered
In a life uncovered

There’s a deep and a darker truth
I believe in a secret
It only matters if you mean it
And we detach from the sacred youth

What kind of man would destroy his cure
What kind of man would corrupt what’s pure
What kind of man only wants to bleed
Everybody knows that the man is me

I wanna be better than my past
I wanna win and come dead last
Time is a loan and love is a gift

Better guard that gate cause that’s all there is

What kind of man would forsake his name
What kind of man puts his faith in a game
What kind of man only wants to bleed
Everybody knows that the man is me

What kind of man would burn it all
What kind of man would ignore the call
What kind of man proves not to be
Everybody knows that the man is me

If I Strike First

Damn myself, not the woman

I can’t

I learned if I strike first, you will never do your worst

Get em when they’re down

It’s now too late
I can’t unknow you
I can’t unhold you
I can’t control you
It’s now too late
I can’t unlove you
I can’t untouch you
I can’t control you

All my life I’m on the run
I can’t escape from what I’ve done
I wake myself on the edge of sleep
I fear the truth cuts too deep

I never will escape myself

Anyone Can Fly (Rise Up)

Gotta play the hand we’re dealt
In spite of all we thought we felt
We gotta build it up but not create
Climbing up the bishop takes king
Final move and one more thing
No lose no win just simulate

I thought you knew the truth
All the time I never said it
We have control
You gotta go forth, go forth
Simulate the world you want and go go go

All your life it worked for you
Matter on strike and can’t pull through
You can choose or choose not to feel
Job one, disconnect
Embrace the mass effect
Only now can the broken heal

I should have said it to you oh
Everything and everyone’s allowed out
I should have said it to you oh
Everything ascends into the sky
Anyone can fly

Never Let Me Down

My heart’s a drum
Let it breathe, let it breathe
My heart’s a drum
And when the beat stops it’ll be the death of me

All this time there’s no escape and no use
Broken bones and crushing nerve with no excuse
All the lines taking shape in circles
They’re the weed and we’re the seed
All we can do is breathe

All this time I’m thinking my body don’t need me
All we can do is breathe
All this time I’m thinking your body can set me free
All we can do is breathe

All my life it’s been growing in my brain
But I don’t mind
Touching numbs my pain

Never let me down, Oh
I said it
Never live it down, Oh
I said it

In my mind I have nothing else to prove
In all my dreams I believe I’m bullet proof

Volunteer Pt 1

If you draw a line
You will find It will never end

You are here
A Volunteer

 

YOU ARE THE WARNING

Our love comes in waves
Our love can soothe the souls of those who can’t be saved
My heart consumed with rage
Now rests in peace with those who knew the golden age

You can live or die
You will go where you decide
We are our best defense
You can kick and scream or plan in silence
You must speak your truth
It all comes down to you and only you

You can’t let go
You are the warning baby don’t you know
You are the warning
You will have to break my will and strike me down

 

Couldn’t Stop Caring

I could see the signs
She was fixed to fly
It’s always better fought than won
For those not afraid to die

I couldn’t stop couldn’t stop stop it

Caring started it
I can’t stop it
Caring started it
I can’t stop it
Caring started it
I can’t stop it
I believe it’s too late
I can’t stop it

It’s all the same
She takes the world
And I take the blame

It’s all the same
She wants to drown
And I break the chain

It’s all for you
You get the change and I give the truth
It’s all for you
Take it to depths they never knew

I couldn’t stop couldn’t stop stop caring

Shot down
She’s coming like a hurricane
Shot down
She’s in love with the pain

I couldn’t stop couldn’t stop stop caring

 

Aching To Live

Sound on the wire
Bathe in the light
There is a world making angels in the night

Fold back the sheath
There’s life underneath
There is a world making angels out of grief

Hide in the cracks
Prepare for attack
There is a world taking all its angels back

Floating away
Drift into space
Bound by no time or place

Fly free
Allow yourself to see
All roads are one way

Never alone, always they’re near
You now are clear
A volunteer

You will feel it
Perfect by design
The truth is too divine

Words will fail you
Closer to your faith
We can be saved
It’s all to give
When you’re aching to live again
Into the sky
We can not die

 

The Lightness

Touch down
I can’t get settled in
Face down
It’s how we all begin

I wont give in
If you don’t give up
They think they’ll win
But that day will never come

I’m never going back to live with tethered rage
I’ll never let them put my wings inside a cage

Given up given up what came before this
I’m gonna live gonna live inside the lightness

Both feet we packed the lightest heat
Head strong we know we can’t be wrong

I’m gonna live gonna live inside the lightness
I know that nothing else is like this
I’m gonna live gonna live inside the lightness

 

Your Enemy

Pay attention
New religion
Ya you know I believe it

All before us
Can’t destroy us
You oughta know I believe

No fire no blade no bullet no stone
You’ll never get away with what I own
I can be your enemy

Comin in comin in comin strong
Pushing too hard to admit it’s wrong
I can be your enemy

You oughta know I believe it
Ya you know I believe it
I will be your enemy

Look at me look at me look at me now
You stand your ground but you’re in my house
I will be your enemy

Nowhere to run and nothing to lose
Damned if we don’t and damned if we do
I will be your enemy

What am I seeing
What am I breathing
We’re all just beings
Sorting it out

Holy darkness dragging truth of love and hate
You are me and I am you

I am not your enemy

 

A Simple Plan

I’m addicted to the tide
when it comes i close my eyes
I’m in line
I’m inside

I’m addicted to the day
We burn out and fade away
When it’s gone it won’t come back
A ll is black

I see the world bending
I can’t believe it’s real
I know it all is ending
And you can make it heal

What is this space we’re climbing
What is this place we’re stuck in
Why do we feel we’re sinking
How do we get out – get out of this

Here it comes it’s out to destroy us
I’ve got a simple plan
Here it comes it’s out for blood
Got to get out while we can

It all comes down it’s caving in
losing my sense of how long it’s been
I’m laying it down and letting it go
The truth arrived too slow

How long can we hold off ending
How long can we pretend we’re ok
No one goes on fighting it forever
I know I’m better this way

 

My Heart Wants Blood

I give you more
I breathe your breath
I can’t exist on what is left

Electric eyes
My heart won’t bleed
I won’t survive
Atrophy

All the same
There’s only so much space
And I’m to blame
I am beneath your grace

All the same
I now release you as I should
But all the same
My heart wants blood

I can’t live any way you want for me
I can’t live any way you care to see
I can’t live
All the pain I ever knew
I can’t live
There’s nothing left, it’s all for you
I can’t live
With any dream of yours untrue
I can’t live
I blame myself for loving you

It’s all true
I blame myself for loving you

 

Valentine

It’s a cold, cold february night
Gone are the days that go down without a fight
I hold this place for your return
Your soul in space, your body burned

I fear the worst, that it’s too late
Defeat this curse and wipe this slate
All is as it is on the needle on which I live

All is as it is

When the storms of ice came
And carried you away
You were swollen and worn
Bodies can break

To die in dark matter
And slip through its sieve
To overthrow demons and simply exist
And the fiercest love and all it’s power
Can not return to before the hour
And bring song to a bird

I live for you my valentine
The lights can fade but you still shine

 

Volunteer Pt 2

All the openings
Require growing wings
Only falling from the sky
We learn to fly

You are free, you’ve been released
All the pain has finally ceased
On fields of air
You’ve come prepared
You are here, a volunteer

    I never though I’d find a group I liked as much as Les Friction, but then I stumble across your music. Absolutely incredible accompaniment, the lyrics are deeply meaningful and haunting, and don’t get me started on how awesome the vocals are. Keep it up, guys — I look forward to new music 🙂
