FIND THE FIRE
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
I traded in my faith for a moment of song
led me to the sea, show my skin to the sun
the fever of the night, beating my heart
taking me back to the very start
I let my thoughts linger in a vacant space
dance in the sand, taking my place
following the heat waves, moving my bones
we're moving fast, and we travel alone
Oh, take it from me tonight
don't wait too long till the fire dies!
we'll be free inside the moonlight
we're falling into dreams, move with the fire
image is divine, burn with desire
I see them in the night, I want to believe
that beauty is truth like the song of the sea
with the fire we can build we can destroy
our mothers are gone, our fathers have lied
remember before, what it was to believe
we're born of the fire-burning in me!
oh, take it from me tonight
dont wait too long till the fire dies
we'll be free inside the moonlight
oh, bring in the firelight
here we conquer, never die
fire breathes inside the moonlight
my face into the wind! here we never change!
in the night I come alive-in the firelight
oh take it from me tonight
we've travelled far too long to roam
find the fire! find your home!

ULTRALIGHT
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Here, standing inside
I've been hiding from the cold
from you, try to forget
everything that I've been told
then I look to your eyes, to kill off the pain
I move back to see faces all look the same
and you're closer now, I feel you all around me
oh tell me are you falling for me
I release my hands and I'll let you go
electric lights are shining in me
I was falling in before I let you go
see the colours of night, will you stay awhile?
for you, my love is true, our love is true
see the sun fill the sky, the colours of change
let me sleep for a while, I'll wake up the same
in your Ultralight
Keep me to believe
oh tell me are you falling for me
I release my hands and I'll let you go
electric lights are shining in me
I was falling in before I let you go

DRY BLOOD
You've sold the one
I'll leave it for you
You're still the one
Its not the same as you are
when no ones around
I'll leave it for you
when no ones around
it's not the same as you are to me now
You sold the one
I'll leave it for you
You're still the one
it's not the same as you are
when no one's around
we might be all the same
no heart with no words
and no ones there to remind us
You sold the one
I'll leave it for you
You're still the one
its not the same as you are
when no ones around
I'll leave it for you
when no ones around
its not the same as you are to me now

NIGHTMARES
Falling into sleep, the space thats in between
a lens of darkness surrounds
my feet come off the ground
to a mirror- a mistake
endings no escape
the taste of blood in my mouth
a knife hanging from above
Vision slowing down fast, too far
nightmare in between the dawn and a dark dream
I'm slowing now tell me who you love
Nightmare in between the dawn- to take me
I see you moving close to me
eyes are white- you cannot see
reaching out for nothing to hold
lose the ground, lose it all
I slowly fall
my body growing cold
sink into the earth, a grave mistake
cold and dark, left for the river
Vision slowing down fast, too far
nightmare in between the dawn and a dark dream
I'm slowing now tell me who you love
Nightmare in between the dawn- to take me

RESERVOIR
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
To the lost river I have gone
here is where I think of you, I think of you
feel your faint image then depart
you wait for me, patiently
I hear your voice! Dreams of a melody
human thought-haunting a harmony
voiceless sounds, of winds that suround me
I fell in love, with your memory I've lost
Julian you rest, the sound of music fled
I try but I can't let you go!
your secrets safe with me,
your love is like a dream,
Julian your shadow fell on me!
I hear the bells calling to me now
Now I know response is made- my tear will fade!
the nights winds visit with those sounds
playing out your harmony, through the window for me
I see your face, turning away from me
years before you turned into harmony
fearful sounds! all we hear all we see
Chains have fallen, fallen down on me
you're getting clearer now..just a little bit more
let me give my heart to you now,
would you wait for me? keep your heart for me?
I'm feeling my hearts consequences
I hear your voice, I long for your melody
for years before, you haunted a harmony
fearful sounds, spirit of beauty
I fell in love with your memory
 

CITY OF STARS
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
They're never gone, the lonely ones
Eternally finding meaning
And needless to say
Needless to say
The city has stars tonight
This heavy air
Feel close to you
I'm fading like the night in rising sun
Innocence, experience
I am a phantom, heart abandoned
Into the stars celestial skies
The chariots rode, the lover's cried
Oh, oh
And need less to say
Needless to say
The city has stars tonight
This heavy air
I feel close to you
I'm fading like the night in rising sun
And all that's begun, it isn't what I've become

MAGNETICS
(Lyrics by Cam Findlay)
And when the world cyclones around you
you know there's nothing to see
and for the ones who won't believe you
you know its not the only way
now you're the one who walks
revolving all around you
there will be nothing to see
in all the odds they won't believe what they found you
no, you've got to go now you see
You're the one
So now you walk you can't believe the words they say
they cannot all be the same
and now the four who lead the floor
like the ones who came to stay
I won't believe you either way
and now you find me alone in your room here
let me see the way that you are
and now the view, now the A and the 3 and the 6
they cannot help you believe
that you're the one

COUNTERPARTS
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Born to lead,
Live a fantasy
Your colour is red
I'll paint a picture I can believe
I built this love, built this city on pain and fashion
Worked all night, worked for cigarettes to burn the ashes
Love is all, love is true
When you're in my heart
We are one, love is blue
You're my counterpart
Hands of time
Stealing days behind
The backs of our illusions
And what's in my mind
I've turned to dreaming
Of these chain reactions
See our love beyond this state of passion
Love is all love is true
When you're in my heart
We are one, love is blue,
You're my counterpart
And now the storm is beautifully in time tonight
For one of us, stole the hands of time

VIENNA
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Vienna will you put me in your heart
Ive travelled long to find you
within these walls, I was torn by a sorrow
a fear I'm left behind
I was taken by your radience shot through the trees
and the presence of your symphony, sweet harmony
You're making my heart beat thinking of your storm
like thunderbolts and lightening!
My love for you it might be strong
like thunderbolts and lightening!
Vienna you have told me to be true
words I hold strong-
You're the storm that keeps me from collapsing
I'll never be alone
All the times I wanted to lose myself in fields of green
hear the presence of your symphony, sweet harmony
You're making my heart beat thinking of your storm
like thunderbolts and lightening!
my love for you it might be strong
like thunderbolts and lightening!

MIDNIGHT VOICES
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
I tune into my radio
eyes are wide, stroke of midnight
with your kiss, I rest my eyes
bringer of the night-you take away the light
Nobody sleeps when you're away
when you're away the darkness ends
Nobody sleeps when you're away
when you're away the darkness ends
Poet of the stars of night
dreamer of dreams, come to me!
we're cold and tired of starless skies
nightengale, sing your song
let me rest my eyes
Nobody sleeps when you're away
when you're away the darkness ends
Nobody sleeps when you're away
when you're away the darkness ends
I hear your voice singing songs to your own tune
I hear your voice singing songs to your own tune
Nobody sleeps when you're away
when you're away the darkness ends
Nobody sleeps when you're away
when you're away the darkness ends

SHADOW HEARTS
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Silently I've tried to search the lang of fog
And many moons have passed
I've travelled idle love
The magic walks me to the kingdom
I've never seen such eyes of blue
Take me now from the garden
My body's warm, my tears are true
Oh young love, hiding in the dark
You're all I'll ever need
These shadow hearts, walk beside you
Tonight we will be free
I long for nights of blue, I fear this hardened heart
I fear for values lost, time moving on, moving on
But the magic walks, find the fire
The midnight songs are here to stay
Crying take me to the river
To wash me clean of darker days
Shallow waters seem divine fell my hearts in over drive
Tell me and I'll bring the wine

ALL WE'LL EVER KNOW
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
I say the same as your words
One moment less shared with your kiss
It's all we'll ever know, no other ways to go
It's all, it's all we'll ever knoe
I say the same again
Remember things we used to know, it's all we'll ever know
When everything we gave is lost
And here- we'll never get to say it again
It's all we'll ever know

RITUAL DANCER
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Oh take me on down to the river I know
To ease my soul from the knowledge I hold I,
Fell for a darkness inside of a man
It's like an obsession, help me understand
Come out of the darkness and into the light!
And I'll lay it all out if you make it right
You are hidden in my heart!
Let's keep it together
Oh I call and you would be my
Ritual Dancer
To break it all down he feeds on the power
Like every minute is a witching hour
White noise feeding out from the TV screen
Just like a possession I want to be free
So listen for me when I call you tonight
From the city streets to the forest at midnight!
You are hidden in my heart!
Let's keep it together
Oh I call and you would be my
Ritual Dancer
Come out of the darkness and into the light
And I'll lay it all out if you make it right,
So listen for me when I call you tonight
On the city streets it's getting on midnight
You forever in my heart
We'll keep it together
Oh I call and you would be my Ritual Dancer

MOONLIGHT DESIRES
(Lyrics by Lawrence Gowan)
You've got ways to take
Hold of my thoughts
Over riding my senses
Lock your sights
Dead in line with my heart
Share your powers
You stir my soul
And wet my hunger
And weave that spell that pulls me under
These moonlight desires haunt me
They want me they want me
These moonlight desires haunt me
You're sending you're sending
Secret fires burn inside me unknown
Locked inside never mentioned
Only you can uncover the flames
Break their silence
And make them dance for us to see them and
Break their chains and give them freedom of..
These moonlight desires haunt me
They want me they want me
These moonlight desires haunt me
You're sending you're sending
A wave over my mind, and I fall to blind
So I say trust me
You stir my soul and wet my hunger and
weave that spell that pulls me under
These moonlight desires haunt me
They want me they want me
These moonlight desires haunt me
You're sending you're sending
(A wave over my mind, secret powers)

TIME WILL CRAWL
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
You're the rhythm to keep the beat
We move to feel release
So we dance for a little more
For lover's sweet reward
You are a picture of youth
You are
Is this heaven in your eyes?
Now I know where we belong
Time will crawl
And this moment lies in you
Now I know when lovers fall
Time will crawl
We put the world in motion
Turning colour from grey
When we dance so lyrical
It feels like magic, magic here again
You are a picture of youth
you are
Is this heaven in your eyes?
In the heat of your bright light
Spinning room and slowing time
And this moment lies in you
Now I know when lovers fall
Time will crawl

DAYS OF SUMMER
Lyrics by Holly Dodson
I didn't have to give into sin
I needed something to believe in
So I wander the world on my own
With open arms
We sat by the river, turning water to wine
We will be loved and forgotten
In the city of Paris, made me feel so alive!
I long for the days of summer
Young and free we were in the mode
Turned every heartache into gold
Young and free we were seventeen
How beautiful those days had been
I held a fear of days to come
But nothing serves me like a song
You know I hungered for the city's melody
And powerless, it held me
Gave all of my courage, didn't want to let go
Never be lost or forgotten
In the city of life, forever I walk
And live for the days of summer
Young and free we were in the mode
Turned every heartache into gold
Young and free we were seventeen
How beautiful those days had been

THE HANDS THAT RULE THE WORLD
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Tempting us with power
They take away our gold
There is no consolation
To do what we are told
Do they recall the touch of skin?
The red and blue, that makes us human
The ones that you loved played like a game
And now you rule the world
Living in shadows to steal while we're sleeping
Played by the hands, the hands that rule the world
Counting the numbers to count the hours
The name of the game of the hands that rule the world
With care they built an ocean
To feed the bottom line
And now we sink or swim
In their ocean filled with lies
But never forget the red and the blue
The natural love, that makes us human
What matters in life is never believe
What's too good to be true
Living in shadows to steal while we're sleeping
Played by the hands, the hands that rule the world
Counting the numbers to count the hours
The name of the game of the hands that rule the world
Give us the guns, the sex and power
Give us sympathy
Oh! living in shadows to steal while we're sleeping
Played by the hands, the hands that rule the world
Counting the numbers to count the hours
The name of the game of the hands that rule the world

DOVER
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)

Still within my life, a vision every night
Your beauty years before
A phantom held your soul
All for you the tides run high
I will wander at the walls of barren white
I believe, I will wait for your return back to me
All my love to the sea
Past the Dover fields of green
All I had all I'll ever be, the ghost of Dover green
And if our tale be told, we lived in days of old
So weak our thread of life
We drank the milk of paradise
Only to fall into a dream
Feel the waters crash and close around me
Did he fall like a hero?
It's a secret left unknown
All my love to the sea
Past the Dover fields of green
All I had all I'll ever be, the ghost of Dover green
What I want, what I lost
The senses of my mind filled with fog
The air was dark, candlelight
You're getting closer now!
All my love to the sea
Past the Dover fields of green
All I had all I'll ever be, the ghost of Dover green
I was the girl at distance seen,
Past the hills of Dover green
All I had, hear my cry upon the wind at Dover green!

LOVE & DEVOTION
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
I feel the weight, the weight of the world
I never knew anybody felt like this
I feel the weight, the weight of the world
I never knew emotion till my fears
took away the wonder of dreams
and I gave my love for security
I feel the weight, the weight of the world
can be so heavy now I'm free
I'm free
To feel this emotion

FURY ON EARTH
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
It's a miracle
To know we'll see the future
You and me
Amid the stones
Of the water waves crashing
It's the thunder in a storm
When you hold me know
I feel your heartbeat
Hold my hands to the light
Creating shadows
There's fury on earth
But we're here alone now
Hold your hands to my mouth
And feel me breathing
There's fury on earth
But we're here alone now
Here I stand, city streets
Amid a sea of faces
We are one in a moment
Having weaknesses and feelings
Why do we sleep?
When we're living while dreaming
Feeding on the air
That feeds the soul inside

ELECTRIMOTION
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)

I feel alive tonight Electrimotion
I'll be coming home
To my friends there will be a celebration
I'll be coming home
The kindest vision, I need to heal
I saw myself held in arms so dear
Why so shy, eyes like mine
Oh I couldn't let go, holding on to something more
Setting sun, red and gold
I'll never let go to the place I was loved
To my home, my sanctuary
Restless I can see it now
Over hills of rolling country
It's a feeling never met before
Setting sun, red and gold
Oh I'll never let go to the place I was loved

THINGS FALL APART
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Could you be human for a while? 
Do you think you'll live forever?
To me words are powerful
endless echo in my mind
Do you think the universe is yours?
Things fall apart, I know
I remember my heart breaking
but I'm stronger than you know
I keep it all inside
Words like stone, shattered glass my window pane
walls come down face to face with change
So here are the words I would've told you
here are the tears I could've cried
Promised cannot be broken
Things fall apart in time
You burned the bridges we had crossed
why do you blame the ones you love
In place I found this space, the wind against my skin
Do you think I'd always be yours
Things  fall apart I know
there was never a you and I
but I'm stronger than you know, so here's to our good times
be weary of words, words like weapons
fighting the silence and the lies
promises made won't be forgotton
Things fall apart in time
So here is the song, that I could've sang to you
here is the history left untold
don't try to explain, I won't understand this time
so here are the words, I would've told you
these are the pieces of my heart
promises made cannot be broken
Things fall apart in time

 

HUMAN NATURE
(lyrics by Holly Dodson)
I saw myself in an endless sea
Drowning in thoughts
I never believed I could live like life had just begun
A promise I held, to emotion burned like a fire
The city lights bring my heart back to life
I remember I needed a word for this feeling
I called it love
Give and take your human nature
Take it from your heart
Keep it for the endless hours
I know, it's unconditional
The air was heavy with the summer rain
The colours of night in our dreams
I play it over inside my head
Like a secret song of desire
Sings like a night bird
Eternally break the silent sweetest dream
I remember the words you wrote, I hold dear
Human nature makes us stronger
Take it from your heart
Keep it for your generations of love
It's unconditional, unconditional
You called it love
When you need your human nature
Take it from the heart
Keep it for the endless hours
I know, it's unconditional

XII
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)
Is there anybody here, without fear?

IN REAL LIFE
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)

Powerlines all running wild through me
in the light of a digital dream
couldn't help how I felt so alone
till I found your face on my phone

it was midnight my time
we were wasted and online
it's how we play modern love
it makes it hard to fuck it up

If you got close to me, closer than through this screen
standing eye to eye, would it be true in real life?

Would it be true?

Fell asleep in the light of our blue dream
felt nice to hear you breathe
in the end we press escape
but I wanted to stay

It could mean so much
cause nothing compares to the weight of blood, the weight of your human touch
maybe I'm wrong to believe
but I see myself surrounded by your things

If you got close to me, closer than through this screen
standing eye to eye, would it be true in real life?

{{ In real life }}
Would it be true? 
I could feel your touch
Would it be true?
I could feel your heart
In real life? 
I could feel...heart

{{real life}}

If you got close to me, closer than through this screen
standing eye to eye, would it be true in real life?

CIVILIZATION
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)

still, time stood for me
to show we needed sympathy
i understand better from a distance, we were only lost

we were blue like the veins
running rivers down your face

we'll carry on in civilization
the skyline in the night had never looked so real
strangers in a city dead for dreamers
idling satellites, looking in

where do we belong, without a place in civilization?
where do we belong, without a place in civilization?

midnight wrapped around me
i felt the coldest touch of absence fall upon these streets
in shadows lie, turn to face reflections to feel not so alone

we never choose these battles in isolation, they're never won

so carry on in civilization
the skyline in the night had never looked so real
strangers in a city dead for dreamers
idling satellites, looking in

where do we belong, without a place in civilization?
where do we belong, without a place in civilization?

TECHNICOLOR
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)

When I was seventeen
Faded by illusion
Wide-eyed renegade
On and On and On
Went our nights away from home
We colored red our true emotions

We are technicolor
Grime and glamour
How we turn our heads to take a picture
And be who we are

We bruised our summer skin
I show my scars to seasonal friends
Saved for you and me
The cracks in the ceiling
On and on and on
Every day turned into one
One photograph to stay forever young

We are technicolor
Grime and glamour
How we turn our heads to take a picture
And be who we are

On and on and on
Yeah, until we're dead and gone
We'll be who we are

We are technicolor
Grime and glamour
How we turn our heads to take a picture
And be who we are

Nights are long
Think of me
Renegade, how we used to be
Now, fall into your dreams

THE KIDS WILL SAVE DETROIT
(Lyrics by Holly Dodson)

Kicking us out around dawn
the cops came to say our time was up
we just wanted to keep what was left
had our hands reaching out for that one silver bullet

I love the city
the river bleeds royal blood
all around, beautiful ruins brought to dust
let the beat go on

In god we trust
so don't lose faith in us
my mama always said
the kids will save Detroit

I had taken the longer way home
to hear the plaza hart's sweet sounds
it's a place I had felt I belonged
the rhythms soul heals a strangers heart

this city haunts me
the vacant lots once so strong
call it home, feel it breathing
if you listen close, you'll hear the beat go on

In god we trust
so don't lose faith in us
my mama always said
the kids will save Detroit

The city, it haunts me

Detroit city, her beat goes on and on and on
Detroit city, her beat goes on and on and on

In god we trust
so don't lose faith in us
my mama always said
the kids will save Detroit
