LYRICS

Under Our Make Up 

I knew you'd been through a lot Like you've been walking through the dark
You thought I was someone else and started to protect yourself

But under our make up
We're both just the same boys
We're all just the same
In different ways but
Here under our make up
We're all just the same

I thought but I wasn't sure
And you were feeling insecure
I thought you'd pushed me away
But you wiped your tears across my face

You said under our make up
We're both just the same boys
We're all just the same
Here comes the shake up
That under our make up
We're all just the same

I'm such a mess but I saw it coming
If you missed the start well here's the part where we're in danger
And with nowhere left to turn we just run and run and run

In different ways
Here under our make up
We're all just the same
Here comes the shake up
Under our make up
We're all just the same

Any Day Now 


When it feels like the whole worlds against us We're sick and tired of the way that they hate us
Lets get out of this place and go anywhere
We can try

If we hit our mark, if we give it all we've got
Or this could last forever
There's a tide taking us over
Its coming any day now

We can run from everything we've been through
And even if its the last thing we ever do
Lets get out of this place, take me anywhere
We can fly, well what are we afraid of

We could miss our mark if we give it all we've got
At least this won't last forever
There's a tide thats taking us over
Its coming any day now

Modern Love 


Took a train downtown And at the last station I thought I saw you
But couldn't meet your eyes

Because I can see this all from above like a story
We twist and turn in Modern Love that goes on and on

Can I crash here tonight
I'm in no shape to drive
You're such a beautiful girl
And I'll be gone in the morning

Took a train downtown
And at the last station I though I saw you
But couldn't get out of the way

The Escape Artist 



The art of escaping is going nowhere 
But leave a trail to fool the hunters 
And find a place in the darkness where no on can find us 

When we can't run away where are we going to go? 
When we can't run away where are we going to go? 
I gave it everything I've got 
Battled with all that I am not 
Wanted it all now I don't want it anymore 

But I have dreams of flying high above 
And on my wings I'd find a place where 
No one can find us 
But close that door, the sun is rising up 
The day has found us 

And we can't run away, so where are we going to go 
When we can't run away where are we going to go 

Because I gave it everything I've got 
Battled with all that I am not 
Wanted it all now I don't want it anymore 
When I fell 
Back to the ground so fast 
I should've known right from the start 
Just wanted to be more then the man that I am 
And I fell 
But starting from now its going to change 
Though we may never be the same 
I wanted it all now I don't want 

Where are we going to go? 
When the are of escaping 
Is to go no where at all

A Song 



Did you ever want to make a difference? 
See your name up in lights for an instant? 
But like the city falls away in the distance 
These things will blow away 

And now we're talking about making something last 
You open my eyes 

We might need a song for us 
We might need a song for when these days go by 

Did you ever get everything you dreamed of? 
Then wish it was simple as it once was? 
The more I get the more it doesn't seem like quite enogh 
Well let it go away 

And now we're talking about making something last 
You open my eyes 

We might need a song for us 
We might need a song for when these days go by 

And we barely sleep at night 
Another day crawls into morning light 
You turn your head and start walking out the door 

Did you ever want to make a difference? 
Just let it go away 

We might need a song for when these days go by

Designer Children  



Why don't we 
Pour a drink to calm our thoughts 
To pause and let 
A day just pass us by 
I feel like I'm always running out of time 

And have I done enough 
To let it out 
When all is said and done 
For tomorrow 
As if we'll ever know 

Where are we? 
Did you ever think that we could mend 
The damage done 
So we can start again 
My friends, designer children holding hands 
And walking blind 

But have I done enough 
to let it out 
When all is said and done 
For tomorrow 
We're talking to ourselves 
For tomorrow 
As if we'll ever know 

Just stop and let a day pass by 
Though we feel we're running out of time 
Because we may never know

You Do it To Yourself 



You do it to yourself 
You fuck yourself and run 
Like you're a one night stand 
Through the window I see you disappear again 
Still running like its someone elses fault 
And thats why I see you come and go 

I don't know 
Why the surest parts of life 
Keep falling through my hands 
Why nothing ever goes the way we plan 
Just tell yourself that we can start again 
So its easier to come and go 

I don't know 
why there's never just an easy way out 

What I want 
Because I'm always disappointed by 
What I've got 
Just a crazy dream of everything I'm not 

I don't know 
Why there's never just an easy way out 

I'm driving myself crazy 
And I don't understand 
How you make it look so easy 
And there's no one to blame but myself 
For anything at all 

Money's not enough 
Never goes far enough anyway 
And if I let you down 
How it pierce my soul 
So just go go go go 
And don't wait for me

Our Little Secret 



Everything's better with you 
So starting at the laces 
And working backwards 
Til everything's coming undone 
Like a parlor trick escape 
From cords and shackles 

But where is this going 
Because I'm not so fortunate as this 
And in the morning you 

Oh there's no need to worry 
Its our little secret 
So tie it up tightly 
We were only making love 
There in the darkness 
Under the starlight 
We were only making love 

I fall as the world starts rise\ 
I'm trying to understand 
I'm working back through 
All of the words that we said 
Please help me understand 
Why our scars are broken 

But where is this going 
Because I'm not so fortunate as this 
And in the morning you 
Oh there's no need to worry 
Its our little secret 
So tie it up tightly 
We were only making love 
There in the darkness 
Under the starlight 
We were only making love 

I'm so excited all the time 
We dance around this conversation 
I'm so tired and so confused 
Without an actual explaination 

Oh there's no need to worry 
Its our little secret 
So tie it up tightly 
We were only making love 
There in the darkness 
Under the starlight 
We were only making love

33 

Found out today when I turned 33
Even though I'm getting older I keep fucking up
And time flies away from old guarantees
I was a different person then, I'm no longer myself

I pulled my chest apart to find an answer in my heart
Now not a day goes by that I don't question my own worth
So leave me in the doorway with my skeleton exposed

I don't want to live without it
Even if we have to go insane
If I cannot live without it
I only have myself to blame

Found out the day that I turned 33
Though I think I'm getting smarter I keep fucking up
Sweeping up with the history I've shattered on the floor
I've taken on the shapes of these remaining broken things
It all seems to exist around the corners of my eyes and
Disappear like chaos when I turn to see its face

I don't want to live without it
Even if we have to go insane
If I cannot live without it
I only have myself to blame

Though I wanted it it seems
It came as no surprise
Tough I wanted it, it seems
It is so hard to find

I don't want to live without it
Even if we have to go insane
If I cannot live without it
I only have myself to blame

Never Let Me Go 

Never let me go
Even when you're hanging by our nails
And our bloodied hands might fail
Never let me go
Even when the tide is too strong
And you cannot hang on

I searched the whole town for what I needed
I searched the whole town but couldn't see it
Now I know we're enough

Never let me go
Even when the stars collide
And threaten to explode
Never let me go
Even when god reaches down from heaven
And steals you from my arms
And leaves you with the devil
As he whispers... whispers...

I searched the whole world for what I needed
I searched the whole world but couldn't see it
Now I know we're enough
