Dream of a Failed Architect


We worked at a factory: september 1980
by the dock at night there's a bright green light
Now there's this job and it's the 1990's
No time to sleep, but still these dreams
Of how you leave; but not of how; you can't conceive
tomorrow comes and soon the year becomes
a start

Those posters on the walls they're dangerous
because I've seen so many friends of mine go
so photoless
and this restlessness takes a toll takes a toll on me
so please believe me
if you have to go then I can go, yeah, I can go

And now a film from the edge of his brain

You say that you want want to go
and have lost of all of the things that you know
and if you really need to know I can go I can go



Battles On

That day that he died a thunderstorm broke the telephone wires
then years later you found his letters but they're meaning was mysterious and vague

So "welcome to the fight," your uncle said as he left the room
and remember when I first met you; and you told me what this symmetry would mean

Here comes the battle
a brand new era
So we're old children
let's fight those bastards down

This is how we sleep without a home. Embyronic half-parental you're awake.
"This is not the life that I had planned," count the seconds between the lightning strikes

Here comes the battle
a brand new era
so we're old children
let's fight those bastards down
Make a decision
This desperation
Make a decision
C'mon let's hit em where it hurts


Rogues & Heroes

A dark pool in the middle of the night, white plastic bags, body guards
We wander through our hollywood, the perfect speak of the common good

Na na....

You take all the things and way them up against all your thoughts and hate them
Is the good really ever good enough?
I  never knew what I should oppose because the line between Rogues & Heroes
has never been that easy to see

Na na....

We climb the social ladders and look for pressing matters
inside the knews inside of your head
Want to find a line we can cling to and gotta live this life that we're forced to
We'll never win if we don't try

Na na....


This Thunder

One hundred years of solid ground, you fall asleep beneath the sound
I could be wrong, I could be wrong, I could be wrong but you're not right
Split apart we'll always fall (apart!)

All of this time I thought that you were lonely
but you were just being strong
And all of this time you lived just like a comet
how long will you have to fall (hey hey!)

You! You talked about it
and I had a dream that we're falling apart ("we're falling apart")
I could be wrong, i could be wrong, I could be wrong but you're not right
Split apart we'll always fall (apart!)

All of this time I thought that you were lonely
but you were just being strong
And all of this time you lived just like a comet
how long will you have to fall (hey hey!)
A mystery's living deep in this construction
What am I supposed to do?
When all of this time I thought I was maturing
but was I just giving in? (hey hey!)

All of this time I thought that you were lonely
but you were just being strong
And all of this time you lived just like a comet
how long will you have to fall (hey hey!)
A mystery's living deep in this construction
What am I supposed to do?
When all of this time I thought I that you were lonely
but you were being strong


Stick Together

We talked alot about Murphy's Law: things fall apart
Forgot about how things change around: I ran to you

Your father found his way home in an ambulance
in time for evening's supper
Sometimes there's so much to say you can't say a word
You told me, "Please be better to me"
I know relatively we could both be two countries at war with eachother

And I know you feel like you've been taken apart by all of your friends and family
well I know this whole damn world can feel like fractals of earth held by the faintest of seams
well...

Still we're stuck here
with eachother
and we'll never leave
So for this moment
let's stick together
and we'll be ok


Louis Riel

We march up the hills, find our way to their base
the enemy lives among us now, shooting pool on our turf
so we mess them up

Waiting by the light with the sight of your room of the town
Where we lived beside the Sev, your cavalier driving us home

The sun got me thinking about Louis Riel
and the days went by with us walking around
the same two streets we're a squadron now
nature's next theft stuck inside the clouds
and I think it's about time for revolution now
these days sitting on the fence are over
I'm going to go honour my father now
these days sitting on the fence are over

The front porch light is on; unpaid bills, a broken home
there's a crack in the mirror, in the heat of this car
it's getting longer

The sun got me thinking about Louis Riel
and the days went by with us walking around
the same two streets we're a squadron now
nature's next theft stuck inside the clouds
and I think it's about time for revolution now
these days sitting on the fence are over
I'm going to go honour my father now
these days sitting on the fence are over
The sun got me thinking about Louis Riel
and the days went by with us walking around
the same two streets we're a squadron now
nature's next theft stuck inside the clouds
and the sun beat down like a burning drum
we fought our way without knowing how
someone said our war would be with ourselves
i think he's right, i think he's right


Strange Times

Oh what strange times
caught inside a tidal wave of surf and surface
Disappointed faces under strobing neon
lights and take-out
Days are getting longer
Nights expand yeah
What have we done that's worth this leisure?
I want a new life, start all over
Find a triumph that's worth my while

Our miscommunications
travelling over houses and their firewires
Different lovers in blue bedrooms
They're all crazy and I am crazy
Oh what strange times that we live in
Online films of revolutions
I want a new life
Start all over
Now


Battles Off

You`ve got all the right answers
and I don`t have the time to argue
But if I did then we would fight and fight
But if I did then we would fight and fight
and fight

And I don`t want you to say I was right
And I don`t want you to say you were right
I just want things to be alright (we are right and we are wrong we disagree and battle on, let`s stop the fight)
I just want things to be alirght

Would you believe me if I said I don`t want to fight
Could you believe me if I said I don`t want to fight


Was a Universe

You can get lost on the way to my house
Drifting through the mazes and the avenues
Double-Gulp, put it down
find a place in the park and pretend it`s ours

I think I`m ready for the country now
All of this dreaming of a bigger downtown
It`s got me doubting the life I`m living
Like my life was a universe

Every meter is a mile
every second a goddamn while
and oh, while I`m sleeping don`t grow old
I say, while I`m dreaming don`t grow old

Flashing Pictures

And I don`t know why I stayed up every night
Flashing pictures of yoru face, every moment in a frame
It`s all that I have

Three colours trapped with light, all to tell a moment twice
When I have to wake up, it`s all downhill from there

Because you never spoke to me
Because you never looked at me

And I don`t know why I stayed up every night
Flashing pictures of yoru face, every moment in a frame

Because you never spoke to me
Because you never looked at me

And all the time that I spent inside my mind
was only time spent alone
All of these dreams and things we`ll never find
It`s all that I`ve ever known

If I could film my life with my own eyes
I`d change all that has gone wrong
we would be laughing and we`d improvise
the flashing moments of our lives

the flashing pictures that we saw
were photographs stuck to the wall
don`t speak the language of the past
all you can do sometimes is laugh
the walls are bare some music palys
the special featuers sit and wait
all those tripods and golden gods

I`ll watch a film

the flashing pictures that we saw
were photographs stuck to the wall
don`t speak the language of the past
all you can do sometimes is laugh
the walls are bare some music palys
the special featuers sit and wait
all those tripods and golden gods

And all the time that I spent inside my mind
was only time spent alone
All of these dreams and things we`ll never find
is all that I`ve ever known


Old Children

The houses where you`ll live; the changes we`ll both feel
and deep inside there`s a child waiting to get out
today I will think about what I did wrong
and if we can talk let`s talk about it
the vibrant things we can`t catch

don`t give up on the fight
don`t give up on your dreams

I was just looking for a life
or was I in a dream

don`t give up on the fight
don`t give up on your dreams


Without Friends

I went away to France and New York
I saw the eiffle tower and those streetlamps
My student line declined, my luggage was lost
you called me yes you called me and you helped
it took a long time; was a matter of course
I felt my size
without friends I die

I went away to find myself
but all that I found was nothing else
My student line declined, my luggage was lost
you called me yes you called me and you helped
it took a long time; was a matter of course
I felt my size
without friends I die
