all that i need in my life is you all that i need in my life is you girl, please stay with me without you, babe, i don't know what i'd do girl, please stay with me the hurt's ok when it comes from you when it comes from you all that i have in my life is you the touch of your hand the only light that breaks through girl, please stay with me without you, babe, i don't know what i'd do girl, please stay with me the hurt's ok when it comes from you when it comes from you

is your heart at battle living in misty shadows does she miss me at all? i see your spirit, broken i know you need atonement but give it one more moment wait - you are not alone if i could give you back the light if i could hold you 'til it's right wait - you are not alone if i could keep you from the edge if i could hold you back again but the dusk has spoken all your demons close in when your tears are oceans it's the coldest darkness knotted in night-time gardens how could she be so heartless? wait - you are not alone if i could give you back the light if i could hold you 'til it's right wait - you are not alone if i could keep you from the edge if i could hold you back again deep black cosmos, don't give me grounds to doubt you! scarlet starscape, how could i live without you?! and though i know you're not found don't want to see you knocked down wait - you are not alone if i could give you back the light if i could hold you 'til it's right wait - you are not alone if i could keep you from the edge if i could hold you back again

there’s no power in your blackout lifestyle but we stack mounds of false positives for white miles and the war on drugs calls for crackdowns while we ship toxins to africa in the background and they want a band-aid for aids in a place where ibrahim digs seven graves a day sweep it under the rug, honey ’cause if you can’t diagnose it, you can’t collect your drug money the human body is a daft weapon probably dreaming of new days since godly church staff repping a peaceful prince rocking the crusades with laughs, getting off tacked a foot in the grave to all their half-stepping some ask what god could do some read teleprompts and the good news but no news reports why so modest, b? your toy soldiers are mostly across the sea having a good time, having an oddyssey trying to mesh foreigners with your foreign policy you seem to have the answers who would jesus rape, torture and kill in the name of democracy? call it cross promotion the truth march on, can’t stop the motion i used to take lots of potion, an ocean ’til the god dropped a coast in no shortcut cropped to kill sin just a lifetime bought, caught rebuilding still spin shelters, foster children but the truth march on, won’t stop for millions and i mean both people and cash we fought fire with fire until we had to fight with ash well can i just meditate to elevate this dead weight and celebrate life, whatever fate disseminate truth the light's gonna shine on your better days not just with the end of the tunnel in scope inseminate struggle with hope double the focus, say it like you mean it, venerate make a clean hit like i'm pummeling soap the light generates, emanates, radiates, beams making great scenes on these 88 keys please, could i have the faith to believe there's more to this life than making money out of trees i wanna make peace out of war, friends out of enemies love out of every moment god's given me all your burdens and fears, you gotta set 'em free all your big ideas, you gotta set 'em free all your birds in cages, gotta set 'em free all your serfs and slaves, you gotta set 'em free when we do this right, it looks heavenly

baby blues like the sky i'm deep in your eyes and waiting, stargazing so come and get lost don't ever stop i'm raptured in your galaxy baby when i'm lying here with you and you touch me like you do you give me motivation a little motivation we're just two lonely stars you always know how i want it you always know how i want it you give me motivation a little motivation to venus or mars wherever the dark has brought us we're stardust supernova's begun i'll make you glow like the sun and we spiral through the void baby when i'm lying here with you and you touch me like you do you give me motivation a little motivation we're just two lonely stars you always know how i want it you always know how i want it you give me motivation a little motivation baby when i'm lying here with you and you touch me like you do you give me motivation a little motivation we're just two lonely stars tangled in this black tar we're just two lonely stars wandering in the dark

cool off, i couldn't be so quick to think it's all alright cool off, you've never been this deep into the dark of night, no from the way that i finish i know i'm the nicest my futile devices i've always been like this, i'm so indecisive just everyday tripping on vices and i'm swaying like a reed in the wind got a fire inside this spire but i'm keeping it in need to begin saying no to these people i'm saying yes to stress through my bones trying to impress you but i guess my cloth is just a different cut freaks and losers, big it up feel like we give too much and somehow we never can live enough and the young keep throwing all that youth away so what do you wanna do today grass is always greener that's what i felt when i was smoking grass vinyl on that turntable rotated to the very last skipping class for that robo crash picture frames and broken glass and razor blades and coke and hash i played the game and no one asked i didn't get out 'til i got on my knees demons calling me too soft but now i'm chopping that new cloth if you can't escape, maybe you need to turn that cool off cool off, i couldn't be so quick to think it's all alright cool off, you've never been this deep into the dark of night, no

baby, i know i'm never perfect, but i'm trying wish i were better with the words i can't find but you don't give me a chance before you start crying so now we're fighting instead of having a good time and you never wanna hear me out please, before you hit the breeze at least would you tell me that you still love me tongue tied like stage fright this was supposed to be date night and you wanna turn away right now i wish you knew the way that you hurt me when you walk away i really wish you knew that it's so hard loving you if we could just go back to the way it used to be before i took from you and you took from me i wish that i could give you what you need   baby, i'm not perfect, but you're not either maybe we need to step back, take a breather let's get away from all this artificial sweetener but if you're talking about love i'm a believer, i'm a believer we're grown up now, this isn't our first fight made it through somehow, used to talk until first light now we're careening off this high speed turnpike but it's still just you and me, i know we can make it work right i wish you knew the way that you hurt me when you walk away i really wish you knew that it's so hard loving you if we could just go back to the way it used to be before we got this far, the screams, the scars but babe, i still just want all of you   all of you for me and all of me for you i can't stand to be apart though you break my heart again why'd we have to make it so complicated i like the way that it used to be trying to be better and whatever but a tender touch coming from you to me could really help me remember that we had something more than just animosity babe, with this relationship, i've stayed legit but it's still a monstrosity by the thousands make mountains out of molehills that amount to nothing but shed tears and it's sounding like you don't want me around but if i bounce we both know it's gonna get weird how'd we get here, it's like we're blinded traveling a path and forgetting where time went this is life, when you twist the knife and i'm sorry for what i did but i wish you knew the way that you hurt me when you walk away i really wish you knew that it's so hard loving you if we could just go back to the way it used to be before i took from you and you took from me but babe, i still just want all of you   all of you for me and all of me for you i can't stand to be apart though you break my heart again

i can't get it out of my head that you're with another man seeing you smile with the phone in your hand i can't get it out of my head that you're with another man when you're saying these things that i don't understand i can't get it out of my head that you're with another man staying out late, and not answering again i can't get it out of my head that you're with another man don't leave me lost, i don't want this to end i can't get it out of my head that you're with another man won't tell me your thoughts or what's in your plans i can't get it out of my head that you're with another man when you're so far away from where we began

had a wife, had a kid, then another one and everybody knows, they can tell something's up no way i'm getting out and it doesn't cut buddy tried to talk me down and i shut him up you can't turn it off, can't turn it on can't help who you want, how you get along i respond to the song inside i've been lying too long and i'm gone tried to dream i freed you but i know it's see-through i could never need you and you can never live look how far we dragged this everything is madness and my deceit and absence are all that i can give i really did it for love started with excitement just like you and i did but we had to hide it and i let it take hold we can talk and listen but there's no right decision fairness was forbidden when i went out in the cold so i'm making like a tree, uprooted, burned down chopped and screwed up, everything you've heard now i've had young love, i've had a few loves but if it's new love, can't it still be true love answerless, if you're taking it there because i can't resist, the romance is bliss all in the way that she stares, and maybe plays with her hair chose to dance with this state of affairs and i'm sorry i really did it for love can you feel it end when she turns away again can you hear the truth though it claws and tears at you i really did it for love can you feel it end when she turns away again can you hear the truth it claws and tears at you

this is over i feel it in my heart you're my poison and i'm drinking in the dark it's always night the sun won't ever rise even though you try to make it hurt me even though you want to pick up and desert me i still want you, baby i still want you, baby even though the sky we built was starless even though you leave me in the coldest darkness i still want you, baby i still want you, baby i'm lost now there's nowhere that's safe and it's strange how this love can feel like hate it's always night the sun won't ever rise even though you try to make it hurt me even though you want to pick up and desert me i still want you, baby i still want you, baby, yeah even though the sky we built was starless even though you leave me in the coldest darkness i still want you, baby i still want you, baby would you kiss me again would you love me again would you hit me again would you cut me again even though you try to make it hurt me even though you want to pick up and desert me i still want you, baby i still want you, baby, yeah even though the sky we built was starless even though you leave me in the coldest darkness i still want you, baby i still want you, baby

about

A driving, shadowy record that takes the beats and synthesizers and catchiness of modern urban pop and turns them on their head to explore the darkest themes in life - distrust, abuse, addiction, loneliness, idolatry, cheating lovers, unjust wars.
