Lies and Promises

[ Sonosphere | Red Letter | True North ]

Passion
flesh and the devil
hook for the sweeter wind
and breathe in the last rose of summer
Stretching our hands in the moonlight
To reach that star is nothing;
we're always one step closer
or so much farther away
living the life, living the life
on the edges of lies and promises.

Our feet were soft in flowers
lips kissing the breath of beauty
Now only words can silence
the sound of this roaring steam
What I want lies too deep
What I want can't be measured
it's under this heavy stone
I'm hunting the Zero in my dreams
living the life, living the life
on the edges of lies and promises.
Lies and promises

There's more than one way to love
Let it live on your deeper side.
Nothing is good for everyone
nothing is true for everyone.
I can't stop myself doubting
but I hate indecision
I hate this inconstancy.
Hook for the higher wind.
Hook for the deeper red.

What I want lies too deep
what I want can't be measured.
It's under this buried stone
I'm hunting the Zero in my dreams.
Living the life, living the life
on the edges of lies and promises.
Lies and promises
