Track Name: Open Water
Open water
Sixteen ton weight over me
Open water
Drowning in the deep blue sea

Hear my calls, god
Hear my calls, now
Get down and hand me some peace
In open water
Vengeance and forgiveness
Mixed up with irony
Merge in the bottom of the sea

In the middle of open water
A man tries to reach for some love
But unless he keeps on believing
Fighting and swimming
Open water will put him to sleep

Holy water
Bless what’s left of my soul
Open water
Has got me way out of control

In the middle of open water
A man tries to reach for some love
But unless he keeps on believing
Fighting and swimming
All this water will kill him
All this water will drown him
All your water will put him to sleep

Hear my calls
Dry my clothes
Save me
Track Name: Dance With Her
Oh my darling
Sweet friend of mine
Hear my cries
These words of advice

Love your lover
The way it should be
Hold her tightly
And prepare to lead

Dance with her or she’ll be gone, gone, gone!
Miles away across the sea
Dance with her or she’ll be gone, gone, gone!
Other men and their lies
Filled her head with despise for thee.

Hey, my brother
So low and down
Lose your cover
Let it all hang out

Love your lover
The way it should be
You may kiss her gently
But don’t forget this
Track Name: Play The Game
Try, fail and cry
They got you playing and
gave you no reason why

Make believe
that the prize is precious
there's so much to achieve

But once you find yourself on top
Just get away, go away
Grab yourself, go back to the start and
play again

Try, fail and fight
when you're indecisive
everybody lies

Try, love and die
the way to perfection
takes so many lives

But once you find yourself on top
Just get away, go away
Grab yourself, go back to the start and
play again

Just make sure that you remember
no one's ever played this game before

Try, fail and cry
They got you playing and
gave you no reason why

Make believe
that the prize is precious
there's so much to achieve

But once you find yourself on top
Just get away, go away
Grab yourself, it's time to go back to the start...

1,2,3,4!

Try, fail and fight
when you're indecisive
everybody lies

Try, love and die
the way to perfection
takes so many lives

Here goes mine, now!
Track Name: Magical Girl (Teen Dream '95)
How many tears must I drop to have you?
When should I laugh, when should I feel blue?
If you gave me at least one chance
I’d sprinkle your hair with stars and feed you up with romance

Magical girl!
Come rock my world
Magical girl!
Come heal my soul

How many secrets must I share with you?
How many times must I try to grab you?
I’m tired of everyone saying you move too much
And you run, baby, I’ve seen it with my own eyes
I cannot get a hold of you
Track Name: Over You
I cast the net
You jumped right into my boat
I picked up a dull knife
And cleared up my throath

I should have stopped
but morals can't be that well defined
And you didn't understand that
you were blind

Your eyes tell me how you felt
frustrated and blue
Bloodshot eyes talk to me while i gut you
Took off your eyes
juggle them, twisted your mind
and you didn't realise that

It should be enough
You fought and you lost
Well, I am over you

It should be enough
You fought and you lost
You battled so tough
but i had enough

Well, I am over you
Track Name: Love and Science
Come sit next to me
We’ll talk for hours in a row
Discuss the importance of romance
Theorize about love and soul

We’re both armed with logics
We’re also way out of control
Science doesn’t make us happy
Love’s the saviour of our dying souls

Come wonder with me
Hold on my hand with pride
Let us leave science behind us
‘Cause our love can last all night

We studied the methods
To held each other’s hands
Got tired, went sleeping
Science kills so many lovers’ plans

Won’t you
Hold my hand with pride

Life’s meant to be lived
Roses are meant to be smelled
You keep your mind filled with the answers
Of those books you know so well

But if you come near me
And redefine goodwill
A kiss will give nourish to all doubts
Science tries so hard to kill

Won’t you
Hold my hand with pride

Let’s go out tonight
We’ll dance, all right
Ball around the nation
Higher than before
Looking for something new

I’ll promise to treat you right
You’ll eventually cry
That’s infatuation
Moon’s shining upon us
It’s like living a dream

Hold my hand and I will love you
Track Name: Caroline
Will I miss your touch?
You came to me with nothing, left with nothing much

I forgot why you went
Eyes all red, you wore the face of resent

Caroline

A bird came to me
Whistling a sad song it learned in the seas

The light in its eyes
Faintly reminded me of sweet Caroline

Caroline

Feeling lone and blue
Looking up the skies, waiting for you

Again and again
Peace emerges when I cry your name: Caroline.
Track Name: Shadow's there no more
Look at the skies changing colours
It feels nice when the clouds come to me
Telling secrets, you see, they’re not dead
They probe you and inspect
All the aspects of life from the moment you’re born
until you’re gone


Run far away to a land clean of hate
Where you'll feel all this numbness within
Fight it off and you’ll win back a life
No bones, all light
Your life is light because your shadow is there no more

One day we will find each other
And become sister and brother
We’ll share light and food and water
And become brothers and lovers
