01. Open Mind

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen, Steven Wilson
Here's a song from an open mind
I give it to you because I can
And if you're thinking that it's not that kind
It's cos my mood swings make me feel ashamed
It can pass the time

A girl with eyes that see a hundred years
Half remembered, this is my dream
Spinning out from where the hole appears
I've never seen her but I've got photographs
It can blow your mind

An idea falls from a porcelain sky
It won't make you rich and it won't get you high

Out of the void it comes
From an open mind
Out of the void it comes
It comes from my mind


02. Blackfield

Music & lyrics by Steven Wilson
Curling lips, fingertips, dead eye dips
I saw it all in the blackfield
Splinter cracks, summer tracks, paperbacks
We found them all in the blackfield
In the shade, whistle blades, singing fades
In the blackfield

She wants to stay and talk all day
so I remark when it gets dark
All the pale things under the earth
Will reverse

River glass, cycle past, overcast
I saw it all in the blackfield
Copper sky, shadows rise, bridge of sighs
We had it all in the blackfield
Skin tracks, face facts, fade to black
In the blackfield

She wants to stay and talk all day
so I remark when it gets dark
All the pale things under the earth
Will reverse


03. Glow

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen, Steven Wilson
I show the scars of every fear and doubt
I hurt myself to let the darkness out
Out

The days go by and nothing brings me joy
The glow was strong when I was a boy
But it's gone

And the glow
It goes
So slow
It goes

Cracks appear and passion slips away
Colours fade and turn to shades of grey
Fade away

If you knew the man I used to be
Please hold me under the sea
Or scratch my arms till they bleed
Save me
Will you help me to feel the glow?


04. Scars

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen, Steven Wilson
Brightest city buried in the dust
Lonely people stop and stare at us
Together you and me are getting lost
The sky falls

It's getting hard for me to see the truth
I lost my soul and gave myself to you
You are an angel and the devil too
A tear falls

All that I got left are my precious scars

I watch a teardrop falling from your eye
You are so perfect when you cry
In the corner all our endings lie
Alone now

All that I got left are my precious scars

It's me that you need now
It's me that you love now

All that I got left are my precious scars
(I wish I was immune then it wouldn't hurt)


05. Lullaby

Music & lyrics by Steven Wilson
Share my cup
Tie me up
Never part
Break my heart
Go to sleep
Wound me deep
Be at peace
Make me bleed

Do no harm
Twist my arm
Lie with grace
Smash my face
Kiss the ground
Drag me down
Stop the noise
Smash my toys

How does it feel without your drugs?
(Sing you a lullaby)
How does it feel without my love?
(Sing you a lullaby)


06. Pain

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen
Here I'm standing on the seashore
She is gone, now she's gone
All the angels praying for me
As I fall, as I fall

While I'm melting in the rain, d, deep in pain, she is so far
Will we ever meet again as friends, after so long?

To my nightmare with the devils
I'll go strong, I'll go strong
All my friends now try to save me
What a joke, what a joke


07. Summer

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen, Steven Wilson
Love me as the summer gone
When eyes were closed and days were long, so long
I burned a torch for you but all the while
Somewhere in the haze you lost your smile

Love me as the winter comes
Don't cast your shadow on my soul, please don't
Don't let me sink, don't let the darkness in
Let your perfect fingers touch my skin

Heart needs a home
It's a dark and empty road
When you're alone

Love me as the springtime comes
Let your song drift down the stairs to me
Waiting here along the way to blue
Remembering the days I spent with you


08. Cloudy Now

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen, Steven Wilson
In a violent place we can call our country
Is a mixed up man and I guess that's me
The sun's in the sky but the storm never seems to end
It's a place of sorrow but we call it a home
And the darkest thoughts, yeah I guess they're my own
There's wealth in the bank but there's nothing to show inside

In a special place that I call my life
The father was cruel and he lost his wife
But I don't see either cos I live across the street
It's a beautiful thing when it starts to rain
A man who drinks just to drown the pain
And I can't stop from dreaming there's something else

We are a fucked up generation
It's cloudy now
A fucked up generation
It's cloudy now
We gotta get out of here
It's cloudy now
A fucked up generation
It's cloudy now


09. The Hole In Me

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen
The hole in me
I cannot reach
The one who bleeds
Please set him free
The hole in me

The hole in me
That no-one sees
The hole too deep
Inside of me

What have I done?
Treat me tonight like a movie star
Who will never die
Always surrounded by girls like you
Kill all my loneliness
Kill all my loneliness

The hole in me
That never sleeps
Born with me
It's killing me


10. Hello

Music & lyrics by Aviv Geffen, Steven Wilson
Through a different kind of silence
I'm waiting, I'm wasting
Into the road of sadness
I'm walking without you

Hello, hello, hello, hello
Is it gonna last?
Why don't you come and take me with you?
And so I know you had to go
I'm dreaming of the past
An echo of the years we passed through

Asleep in your arms I'm drifting
I'm falling in sorrow
Dead to the world you left me
In footsteps I follow
