Lyrics with question marks are not for sure. Enjoy!

LONELY NATION
??? she lives in a lonely nation
??? sheís got no complications
??? sheís (a slave to what she wants)
???
??? right now (???), one thingís missing
sheís been breaking up inside
inside
desperate we are young
separate we are one
i want more than my desperation/lonely nation
i want more than my desperation
singing without tongues
screaming without lungs
i want more than my desperation
i want more than my desperation/my lonely nation...
(ohohohh ohohohh)
we are the target market
we set the corporate target
we are slaves of what we want
we're Ö just not amused and
Ö we're just used to bad news and...
we are slaves of what we want
singing without tongues
screaming without lungs
i want more than my lonely nation
i want more than my lonely nation
desperate we are young
separate we are one
i want more than my desperation
( want more than my desperation
i want more than my desperation)
i want more than my lonely nation
(ohohohh ohohohh)
??? (where will we go?)
??? (lonely, lonely)
???
???
???
???
singing without tongues
screaming without lungs
i want more than my desperation
i want more than my lonely nation
desperate we are young
separate we are one
i want more than my lonely nation
i want more than my lonely nation

STARS
maybe Iíve been the problem
maybe Iím the one to blame
but even when I turn it off and blame myself
the outcome feels the same
iíve been thinking maybe Iíve been partly cloudy
maybe Iím the chance of rain
and maybe Iím overcast
and maybe all my luckís washed down the drain
iíve been thinking about everyone, everyone
you look so lonely
but when I look at the stars
when I look at the stars
when I look at the stars
i see someone else
when I look at the stars
the stars
i feel like myself
stars looking at our planet
watching entropy and pain
and maybe start to wonder how
the chaos in our lives could pass as pain
iíve been thinking about the meaning of resistance
of a hope beyond our own
and suddenly the infinite and penitent
begin to look like home
iíve been thinking about everyone, everyone
you look so empty
but when I look at the stars
when I look at the stars
when I look at the stars
i see someone else
when I look at the stars
the stars
i feel like myself
(Yeah)
stars
stars
everyone, everyone
you feel so lonely
everyone, yeah everyone
you feel so empty
when I look at the stars
when I look at the stars
when I look at the stars
i feel like myself
when I look at the stars
the stars
i see someone

HAPPY IS A YUPPIE WORD
everyone dies
everyone loves a fight
nothing is sound
nothing is right side right
evening comes when the sun goes down and red
nothing is cool
when will all the fighting end?
when will all the fighting end?
happy is a yuppie word
nothing in the world could fail me now
it's empty as an argument
running down a life that won't cash out
...cash out...
everything fails
everything around is coarse
???
???
everything dies
everything has got a price
nothing is new
when the failures rise
when will all the failures rise
rise
happy is a yuppie word
nothing in the world could fail me now
it's empty as an argument
running down a life that won't cash out
everything is meaningless
i want more than simple cash and ???
happy is a yuppie word
word
looking for an orphanage
looking for a bridge I canít burn down
i donít believe the emptiness
looking for the kingdom coming down
everything is meaningless
i want more than simple cash and ???
everything is meaningless
happy is a yuppie word
happy is a yuppie word
happy is a yuppie word
happy is a yuppie
nothing is sound
nothing is sound
nothing is sound
nothing is sound
nothing is sound
nothing is sound
nothing is sound
happy is a yuppie word
nothing in the world could fail me now
happy is a yuppie word
word

THE SHADOW PROVES THE SUNSHINE
hold fast to the break of daylight where
the shadow proves the sunshine
the shadow proves the sunshine
too scared, better run a ways
hold fast to the break of daylight where
the shadow proves the sunshine
the shadow proves the sunshine
oh lord why did you forsake me?
oh lord don't be far away...

crooked (??) trying to stay up straight
drive byís in the pouring rain where
the shadow proves the sunshine
the shadow proves the sunshine
too scared, better run a ways
hold fast to the break of daylight where
the shadow proves the sunshine
the shadow proves the sunshine
yeah, yeah shine on me (???)Ö

EASIER THAN LOVE
everyoneís a lost romantic
since her love became a kissing show
everyoneís a Casanova
come and pass me the mistletoe
everyoneís been scared to death of dying here alone
sheís easier than love
itís easier than life
itís easier to fake a smile (and bright???)
it's easier to live
it's easier than love/to lie(???)
it's all in a face of self at night(???)
feeling alone
what have we done?
what is the monster we've become?
where is my soul?
lalalala, lalalala
sex is industry, the CEO of corporate policy...

THE BLUES
Iím singing this one like a broken piece of glass
For broken arms and broken noses in the back
Is this a new year or just another desperation?
You push until youíre shoving
You bend until you break
Until you stand on the broken fields where your fathers lay
it'll be a day like this one when the world caves in
when the world caves in, when the world caves in...

Öa misdirection
lost in all this desperation
is this what they call freedom?
is this what you call pain?
is this what they call discontent of fame?
it'll be a day like this one when the world caves in
when the world caves in, when the world caves in...

THE SETTING SUN
Theyíre selling shares of me again
But Iím not buying in, Iím not buying in
My wound goes deeper than the skin
Thereís no hiding it, so Iím not trying it
my hope runs underneath it all the day that Iíll be home
it won't be long, I belong
somewhere past this setting sun
finally free, finally strong
somewhere back where i belong...

not sure which of me is real
iím alone again
burning out again
my hope runs underneath it all the day that i'll be home
it won't be long, I belong
somewhere past this setting sun
finally free, finally strong
somewhere back where i belong...

POLITICIANS
everything is breaking down
breaking down
I pledge allegiance to a country
without borders, without politicians
watching for my sky to get torn apart
we are broken, we are bitter
we're the problem, we're the politicians
watching for our sky to get torn apart
come on and break me...
entropy and aching, where have we been aiming?

??? country
Without borders, without politicians
Without watching for our sky to get torn apart
How broken we, how bitter
we're the problem, we're the politicians
watching for our sky to get torn apart
come on and break me...
entropy and aching, where have we been aiming?

We are the faded
Stranded and sedated
Everything is fading out
fading out
I pledge allegiance to a country
without borders, without politicians
watching for my sky to get torn apart
we are broken, we are bitter
we're the problem, we're the politicians
watching for our sky to get torn apart
come on and break me...
come on and break me...
ohh, ohohohhh

GOLDEN
Ölet go
Donít let go tonight
Thereís a fear that burns like trash inside
And your shame occurs that burns your eyes
you've been hiding in the bedroom
hoping this isn't how the story has to go
it's not the way it goes
it's your book now, you're golden
you are golden, child
you are golden, don't let go...
Donít let go tonight
Youíre a lonely soul

THE FATAL WOUND
My breath avoids me
My chest in my head
My stomachís upside down, down
Son of sorrow
staring down forever
With an aching view
disenchanted
let's go down together
with the fatal wound
*harmonica*
this is the real thing
no rubber bullets now
this is the firing squad...

WE ARE ONE TONIGHT
Iím no victim
Iíve paid these dues
I came to lose
I donít want to fight about it now
With the whole world upside down
I donít have a soul to trust in now
With the whole world upside down
we are one tonight, and we're singing it out
we are one tonight and we're dreaming out loud
and the world is flawed, these scars of you
we are one tonight, tonight, tonight...
tonightÖ

I donít want to lose it coming down
with the whole world upside down
I donít have a soul to trust in now
With the whole world upside down
we are one tonight, and we're singing it out
we are one tonight and we're dreaming out loud
and the world is flawed, these scars of you
we are one tonight, tonight, tonight...

DAISY
daisy, give yourself away
Look up at the rain
The beautiful display
Of power and surrender
Giving us today
When you give yourself away

Rain, another rainy day
It comes up from the ocean
To give herself away
She comes down even
And all of us the same name
When you give yourself away

let it go
daisy let it go
open up your fists
this fallen world
it doesn't hold your interest
it doesn't hold your soul
daisy let it go

pain, give yourself a name
call yourself contrition
avarice of fame
giving isnít easy
if anybodyíd like to say
if you give yourself away

daisy, why another day
why another sunshine
whoís going to take the blame
for our redemptive motion
and every rainy day
when he gives himself away

let it go
daisy let it go
open up your fists
this fallen world
it doesnít hold your interest
it doesnít hold your soul
daisy let it go

Öshe comes down easy
on rich and dead the same
when she gives herself awayÖ

let it go
daisy let it go
open up your fists
this fallen world
it doesnít hold your interest
it doesnít hold your soul
daisy let it go
