As smooth as silk, as bright as gold Low and behold The saviour of a dying scene, but no one here consulted me One size never fit all, the talent pool Is smaller than it’s ever been, And too shallow to dive Setting out to make your mark Which road will start, the journey of a thousand steps Can start with one mistake It doesn’t matter who you know It’s fashion over function Stockholm Syndrome You stole the sun away You won the argument Re-trace steps to learn where you were You stole the sun You stole the sun away You won the argument Re-trace steps to learn where you were You stole the sun

See you standing there Looking at me unaware But deep inside we’re all the same but sit in judgement anyway Senseless minds Borderline So pull the other leg And we’ll dance in vain Spin me round Please don’t tell me I won’t listen Senseless minds Borderline So pull the other leg And we’ll dance in vain Spin me round

It’s no surprise, and you’re telling everyone Whilst saying nothing more than lies So bide your time Grit your teeth and sail away Nothing simple ever stays the same Prayer won’t Save so… Satellites mid-flight Bid you all a good night In empty skies There’s nothing there and never was Between the ground and the gods Just make believe Not so fast, there’s no quick fix get out clause Take a stand and fight for What you believe Having been here before This time looking for so much more Prayer won’t Save so… Satellites mid-flight Bid you all a good night In empty skies There’s nothing there and never was Between the ground and the gods Just make believe Satellites mid-flight Bid you all a good night In empty skies There’s nothing there and never was Between the ground and the gods Just make believe

It’s like a punch in the face It’s like a bump in the road It’s like you’ve never been born and at the same time a ghost No one else here seems to think No one else here seems to care It’s like your taking on water and gasping for air Some people never listen But that’s not me I value your opinion I’m listening One day you’ll learn I’ll watch you burn It’s like a punch in the face It’s like a bump in the road It’s like you’ve never been born and at the same time a ghost Some people never listen But that’s not me I value your opinion I’m listening

This is not a test Though others might suggest it was Standing to attention Dying to be heard Don’t sweat it out Or you will loose it all And if you make it out Stand tall Never would have guessed You stretch then tear when paper-thin Don’t hold back Don’t let go Don’t sweat it out Or you will loose it all And if you make it out Stand tall We stood hand in hand and face to face Never stopping to think One day, all of this could be taken Away, along with our memories, gone This is now a test As others had suggested once No distractions Not saying a word Don’t sweat it out Or you will loose it all I hope you make it out We stood hand in hand and face to face Never stopping to think One day, all of this could be taken Away, along with our memories, gone

Well I think I've heard it all now You say you’re doing everything you can But you practice something different to what you preach Just keep talking and I’ll show you who I am You talk the talk but you’ll never know That you’re pushing me away, and you've nowhere left to go Don’t be so scared of who you are but please don’t make me have a Change of Heart Look back at the times when you thought you were telling Me just exactly what you thought I’d need to hear You've a constant need to please and to follow suit But you live your life in fear You talk the talk but you’ll never know That you’re pushing me away, and you've nowhere left to go Don’t be so scared of who you are but please don’t make me have a Change of Heart Well I know I've heard it all now I wish you’d be this honest from the start But you said and did the very best you could Please stop talking as I've had a change of heart
