Lyrics

Congratulate Our Thievery

Written By: Lemon Sun

CONGRATULATE OUR THIEVERY

The sound of change is on the ground
Not the kind to bring us 'round
We're coloured green by all accounts
Sleep with greed to soothe the doubt

Congratulate our thievery
Take all we can religiously
Hide your card, save your face
These are the days
We say...
What's in it for me? (Feed your thievery)
We say... (Take all you can before they see)
What's in it for me?

What's the measure of success
To play the pimp in the land of excess
What's the measure of defeat
Feed them cake and watch them eat

Congratulate our thievery
Take all we can religiously
Hide your card, save your face
These are the days

We say...
What's in it for me? (Feed your thievery)
We say... (Take all you can before they see)
What's in it for me?

Same Old Ground

Written By: Robert Kolar

Hey little sister,
don't be afraid,
even though that's what the newspapers seem to say
with desperation.

Hey little sister,
I know its tough,
money ain't being shared but God knows there's enough
to arm a nation.

We all come back again,
To the same old ground,
the one where we began

Hey little sister,
its the same old song
we all think we're right
well who the hell is wrong,
and so well fall apart.

Hey little sister,
don't lose your smile,
even though it seems love has gone out of style,
I hear your beating heart

We all come back again,
To the same old ground,
The one where we began

We fall apart
But I hear your heart

We all come back again,
To the same old ground,
The one where we began.

Fall For You

Written By: Robert Kolar

I wasn't looking for love,
Burned the women that had tied me up.
Running free from the noose,
Fell into something I couldn't lose.

Do you see I fall for you,
Do you see you are the one I choose.

I was reckless with truth,
Spun the words to kill the clues.
You have seen through my disguise,
Now I long to look within your eyes.

Do you see I fall for you,
Do you see you are the one I choose.
The one I choose,
I'm comin' after you.

CHORUS

I fall for you (repeat)
When I'm with you, I'll never lose

Dying Age

Written By: Robert Kolar

Did you make a move that you never made
Turn your heart and turn the page
'Cause in your eyes there's a dying age
A chance to live out the dreams you crave

In the end all that's left of us
Are memories of a life that was

Could you say
I don't regret
This life I've lead
and slip away

When you lay on your last goodbye
The world you're leaving will flood your mind
Did you take the reigns or fall to fate
Did you break the mold or weigh the stakes

In the end all that's left of us
Are memories of a life that was

Could you say
I don't regret
This life I've lead
and slip away

So do you live or merely cope
Set your sights or merely hope
On the fence of your desires
So do you live or merely cope
Set your sights or merely hope
On the thread of your desires
your desires...

Could you say
I don't regret
This life I've lead
and slip away (repeat)

The Loner

Written By: Robert Kolar

You can call me a loner if you like
Don't call me a killer, I ain't the kind
I've called for an ocean in my time
Came back with no water but peace of mind

I'll go where the wind blows
You can see it in my eyes
I know what I'm after
Don't believe it is a crime
I'll go where the wind blows
You can see it in my eyes
I'll walk with the lonesome
Until the day I die

You can call me a loser if you like
You can tell all your friends I've been out of sight
I've searched for devotion in my time
All I've seen is that love is blind

I'll go where the wind blows
You can see it in my eyes
I know what I'm after
Don't believe it is a crime
I'll go where the wind blows
You can see it in my eyes
I'll walk with the lonesome
Until the day I die

You can spend your life reaching for the crown
You can scrape the sky until you realize you can't come down
You can spend your whole damn life reaching for the crown
But how're you gonna pay for your stolen holiday

You can see it in my eyes
I know what I'm after
Don't believe it is a crime
I'll go where the wind blows
You can see it in my eyes
I'll walk with the lonesome
Until the day I die

Touch The Lightning

Written By: Rob Kolar

Hands of destruction
Hold me by the collar
I take a sip to slip away
The Spell of illusion
Looks just how I want it
But when I reach out
There's nothing there

The skies are calling
I want to touch the lightning
And I am falling
Into the outer space

Stir from submission
Instinctive intermission
A pause
To recollect myself
Cheap entertainment
Pass on that temptation
I'll toss it all into the wind

The skies are calling
I want to touch the lightning
And I am falling
Into the outer space

Look up at the stars
Wonder who we are
But we know
This place isn't what it seems (repeat)

We're reaching out
From the past
Walls of sand
Never last
Into the sky
Into the breeze
Without restraint
I feel the peace

The skies are calling
I want to touch the lightning
And I am falling
Into the outer space

I Wanna Have You

Written By: Rob Kolar

I cannot sleep
I made a promise, I cannot keep
But in your gaze
Is something that makes me wanna misbehave

I know you can't make a move
But is it love you want to lose
We're running out of time

OoooOoooo
I Wanna Have You

We're shaken up
Cut in half, our eyes are shut
I cannot hide
This love I feel inside

I know you can't make a move
But is it love you want to lose
We're running out of time

OoooOoooo
I wanna Have You

Sometimes you must decide
Burn down the bridge and go for the thrilling ride
Sometimes love won't wait
Our love blooms as two hearts break

Ooooh I wanna Have You
