Birds of tokyo

"Birds Of Tokyo" (2010)

Plans Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

We made plans to kiss the sun at night
Hopeless dreamers, hopeless types
Shedding skin you show your beauty scars
Don't forget me or who you are

You know this don't feel right
Who knows what we feel?

I just met you I can read your thoughts
What they tell me is what I want
I'll keep you guessing keep you wanting more
'Cos where we're going no one knows

You know this don't feel right
Who knows this could feel right

I just met you, I swear I read your thoughts
So don't forget me or what you want

Light up the stage, make your move, give me something
So I can dance in your light and to your rhythm

Soon it unfolds who we are in this masquerade of stars
Tear off the mask, the face you hide is what I'm missing

We made plans to kiss the sun at night
Hopeless dreamers, hopeless types
One was turning, one was standing still
I won't forget what was promised here

You know this don't feel right
Who knows what we feel?

The Saddest Thing I Know Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

How long you been asleep at the wheel?
Out of control, gathering up speed
Your heart is on the dashboard, head's in the street
I hope that you wake up in time to scream

Race me for tail or for hits
Your attitude is mud and your promise is dead
You counteract the fuel with the drink and the drugs
It's not what you did, it's what you will do
So take another turn on the merry-go-round
Your numbers are come up now your king of the town
So buckle up and chase yourself a new thrill
You're never gonna feel like before

You keep coming back for more
To find me almost knocking on your door
Say man you are the saddest thing I know
You got a cold sweat begging for the score
You lose it all as you stumble to the floor
Say man you are the saddest thing I know

You keep coming up for air
To find your own foot pushing on your head
Say man you are the saddest thing I know
I see the dried up lotus in your hair
You got the old kaleidoscopic stare
Say man you are the saddest thing I know

When you gonna finally admit
It's the end of the line you've been hammered and hit
Your body is a wreck and your mind is amiss
I know what you want I think this is it

The Dark Side Of Love Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

Love is a ticking clock that laughs
and leads us to believe we are one
It's a sick game the winner takes their prize
The loser's left to slowly die

I can't take much more im leaving
for another place where no one knows me
Here I'll start it over
I will find a way to piece myself together for you and me
and this has to be the dark side of love

So many nights have I been down, I've been thinking of you
So many right, so many wrong
What have you done to me
Where have you gone, my dear
Where do you go?

Just let it take control and drag you to the bottom now
It's a long way down on your own
So you must take a passenger along

I can't take no more, I'm leaving for another place where you won't find me
Here I'll start it over I will find a way to piece myself together
oh, for you and me
and this has to be the dark side of love

So many nights have I been down ,I've been thinking of you
So many right, so many wrong
What have you done to me
Where have you gone my dear?

So many nights have I been down
I've been thinking of you
So many right, so many wrong
I've been thinking of you

So many nights have I been down
(I don't know what to do)
So many right, so many wrong

What have you done to me
where have you gone my dear
where do you go

In The Veins Of Death Valley Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

I told you let the good ones in
You're worth your weight in gold
Struggle to fight the feud within
To face what you've become

Just when think you're at the end
You circle on yourself
It's true what they say when things get crazy
We learn to thicken skin

Feels like the poison is creeping in
Stripping your vein it's settled in
Straight to the heart, good luck
You're finished for sure

Say now it's been a lifetime of dreaming
This is the last time I bleed for you
So long, it's not forever and I'll stay
Here for the echoes instead of you

I want you to know you're in
The deepest of the oceans
I don't think that you can swim

You tell me that everything is fine here
And you can handle it
You're just on the edge, I think you're breaking
The cracks are showing up

Feels like the poison's creeping in
Stripping your vein it's settled in
Straight to the heart, good luck
You're finished for sure

Say now it's been a lifetime of dreaming
This is the last time I bleed for you
So long, it's not forever and I'll stay
Here for the echoes instead
Of you and the walking dead
You're too far gone

Feels like the poison's creeping in
Stripping your vein it's clear to see
You're staring at death in the face
And you're all here alone

Say now it's been a lifetime of dreaming
This is the last time, when you're gone
Things will get better, and I'll be the last one laughing

Cry out- no one can hear you
Alone now- no one will miss you
Cast out- never to be seen again
It's sweet at the bitter end
Your time has come

Circles Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

I'm being followed by my shadow
He's been creeping around
Asking where I've been

He keeps tapping on my shoulder
Telling me it's over
So where do I begin?

These dark days are getting harder
I feel I'm treading water
So will I sink or swim

Roll on, push a little further
I keep saying is this worth it
Or should I just give in

I don't know

I don't know which way I'm supposed to spin
In this circle
And I won't waste my time on your concern
'Til it's over

I look back on a distant border
I fear I'm getting older
There's so much that I missed

Walk on following a fate line
See if I can define
Where I came undone

I don't know which way I'm supposed to spin
In this circle
And I won't waste my time on your concern
'Til it's over

And I will wait my turn
My time will come
This ain't over

And I can't wait no more
No sweet return
This is over
So it is
(No sweet return)
So it is
(No sweet return)
So it is
(No sweet return)
So it is
(No sweet return)

This is over

Wild At Heart Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

You've got your motive, you set the scene
So how about another taste
Or would you like to remind me why we're here
As I walk to the water to cleanse off the blood on my hands
The weight of this crime leaves a stain in the sand
I hope new tides come to wash me clean for good

You know that I fought with many and I won for some
We stared at ourselves 'til our breaking point
We wear our bruises like watermarks
The life and the death of the wild at heart

This empty bottle, this busted hand
Highlights mistakes of a broken man
He won't speak up, no he won't come out of his hole
We were led to believe that the language of love was god
So few were forgiven

I'll lead a march to the wall
And we'll pull it down
So we can rebuild it

I fought with many and I won for some
We stared at ourselves to our breaking point
We wear our bruises like watermarks
The life and the death of the wild at heart

When was the moment it all fell apart
With no sign of warning, no raised alarm
We still wear our bruises, we shows our scars
Forever the wild at heart

You know that I fought with many and I won for some
We started at ourselves 'til our breaking point
We wear our bruises like watermarks
The life and the death of the wild at heart

When was the moment it all fell apart
With no sign of warning, no raised alarm
We still wear our bruises, we shows our scars
Forever the wild at heart

The Gap Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

I've been at the bottom I've been living in hell
The highest of highs got me nothing but stares
Maybe with the lights out we can be bad

I'm licking my wounds I?ll be resting my head
(So how were you to know)
That I was the one that let the devil exist
(I think you aught to know)
Maybe with the lights out we can be bad
It started when your eyes rolled back in your head

See I,
Can fool them all
With you there's no way
I got nothing at all

I strap up my boots and then I kick in the door
(So how were you to know)
I know what I've done but I?ll be coming for more
(I think you aught to know)
Maybe with the lights out we can be bad
It started when your eyes rolled back in your head

Stay, the hell
Away from me
Cos I did you wrong
I'm begging you leave
Cos I've seen it play
I know how this ends
It?s nothing I wanna see again
I'm begging you please
To let me go
Free yourself
The world you know
Is somewhere else

See I,
Have seen it all
The rage in the bull
The witee of his horns
And you know me better
Than I know myself
My greatest mistake was giving you up
For nothing at all
For nothing at all

Murmurs Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

Here in this moment the silence is comforting
There's no sign of movement
At peace with the true divine

All that we hope for, all that we call our own
There's no rules to follow
We must break in or be left out

We are on our own pulling teeth out for the fun of it
I can't believe it, you showed courage the brave dream of
I live to regret you, the murmur inside my heart

Time waits for no one, no one has time to waste
We shuffle through pockets
For the answers and lint we find

We are on our own pulling teeth out for the fun of it
I can't believe it, you showed courage the brave dream of
I live to regret you, the murmur inside my heart

Just as I'm sinking down
You reach in and pull me out
Safe from the rising tide
Safe from the world outside

The Unspeakable Scene Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

Just when you think that you're warm, you're getting colder
Just when you think that you're fine, soon the unspeakable scene will unfold

Would you want to do it all again if you could have just one chance to change
Every little thing that could have been as beautiful and so real you'll never know
You're bent out of shape, flat out of luck, you try to bury this load, dig brother dig
A little deeper strike a nerve and leave a scar so you won't forget

Just when you think that you're warm, you're getting colder
Just when you think that you're fine, soon the unspeakable scene will unfold

Hey speak up
Let me hear what you harbour please don't lie
I will be fair to your soulless, pale dead eyes
Wait. What did you say? Did you just call for help?

Just when you think that you've won, you'll soon be the loser
How did you think this would end up? Stupid and foolish
Just when you think that you're okay, you start hearing voices
Just when you think that you're fine, soon the unspeakable scene will unfold

Waiting For The Wolves Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

Tell me when are you coming home? Are you alone?
Bitten by the hand that feeds your house, your home
You've been waiting for the wolves to come and finish you

Show a little fake, a smile and waltz on through
You're here to entertain the world but they won't change you
You try to spit another line as your teeth fall out
Choking up on every word they just won't come out

Tell me when are you coming home? Are you alone?
Bitten by the hand that feeds your house, your home

So you think you've made you mark and they know you now
Dropping every name around in the coolest crowds
They're telling you you're number one' yeah you wear it well
Underneath the scales and skin it's just sell sell sell

Tell me when are you coming home? Are you alone?
Bitten by the hand that feeds your house, your home
You've been waiting foe the wolves to come and finish you
You've been waiting for the truth to spell out the end of you

If This Ship Sinks (I Give In) Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

I'm trying to get my head straight
I'm playing in game that I can't win
I started in the wrong place
A slap to the cold face of love
I wanna stop this god damn beating heart
It's killing me

This is killing me

I'm trying to get my head straight
I didn't see the warning signs ahead
I feeling like a dead weight long gone
If I could make it all right I would
I never thought I'd say these things to you
And it's killing me

This is killing me

I can't stop this train I can't get off
But I can't go back I've come too far to stop
There's too many signs to read them all
There's too many roads I need to stumble down

I've gotta get my head straight
I never thought a day like this would come
I'll never be the same way as once
I wanna know if this is for real
I've gotta know what fate has planned for me
I give in
I give in
I give in
I give in

Believe me when I say
There's something I wish I could say
You were always so good to me
Even when it's so hard to be
I sailed myself too far out to sea
On favoured whims that wont sing for me
There'll be no rescue no finding me
As I become an old memory
You once knew
You once knew

It's silent as I sink into the sea
Weightless as the tide carries me
To darker water where I believe
Something's down here waiting for me
The numbing cold is taking from me
Everything I'm so far beneath
My eyes they open one last time to see
You are staring right back me

Broken Bones Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

Salute the army of hell's hounds
Salute the reasons why
My conscience it wakes me
With fire inside I'll never get out
Ill never make my stand....

And we lie
Awake
I'm not about to listen to them

For I
Can't wait
It's not about me

Stare down the longest line
Of course this is falling apart
You fooled me like a rat trap baited
But I refuse to buy
I'm shell shocked and I've lost my sight
But I can still hear you calling me...

And we lie
Awake
I'm not about to listen to them

For I
Can't wait
I'm not about to listen to

I'm on a highway that leads to the end
I'm on a highway that leads to the end
I'm on a highway that leads to the end
I'm on a highway that leads to the end

These broken bones
This busted smile
My head it hurts I should be leaving now
I hear your words
They call my name
I won't go back, you must be out of your head

You say I'm wrong
You say I'm mad
If I stay here I'll never make it back
I hear your words
They call my name
I won't go back
You must be out of your head
You must be out of your head

Wild Eyed Boy Lyrics – Birds of Tokyo

One last kiss
If you are not far between
Assuming it's my first time
Assuming it ought to be

Send me and IOU
I'll send you another chance
To see if you got my back
To see if I can depend on you

Wild eyed boy
Your heart still won't settle
Wild eyed boy
How much can you take?

Say my name
If you truly wanna see
What matters and what's for real
What you should have meant to me

Sing me a lullaby
Sing me a song of change
Assuming that I don't mind
Assuming that I depend on it

Wild eyed boy
Your heart still won't settle
Wild eyed boy
How much can you take?

Wild eyed boy
Your heart still won't settle
Wild eyed boy
How much can you take?

They told you you're no good to any
Tell yourself you're so good to many
Sell your soul your no good to any
How much can you take?

Wild eyed boy
Your heart still won't settle
Wild eyed boy
How much can you take?

Wild eyed boy
Your heart still won't settle
Wild eyed boy
How much can you take?
