Cameo 05:12
Simply stunning The night I hold you Left me wanting less 'Cause all you gave was so true Free from desire The silence is all we truly need A sea of honey Acres of fruit so sweet Mountain mist Rich with mint is our future Glimpse of gold Where fate unfolds The passion bold Forever Chase the thrill Down the hill Down the hill Chase the thrill Down the hill Down the hill

Swimming in defeat Just overthinking Suddenly Press my lips to concrete How sweet distaste A copper coated serenade Betrayed By the dreams I've clutched In vain Insane Trusting us We've been waiting Long before the rush Odd hush Inside too much Love's a chore Don't you want more Or less? Protest or protect The elegance Lazily my tomb reflects A series of regret Content with regret As it allows me to forget When the crowns fall They roll off and reside Lost beneath these golden orange sheets Knowing us We've been waiting Long before the rush Odd hush Inside too much Love's a chore Don't you want more? Unless My breath Steps toward death

There's some time And a place Where we can stay In our hands Maybe we just Started the battle With nothing Else but faith And it did us no good Stuck on little waves This town deep in my heart You are the only one Strung out before the run And the sun was screaming Dancing towards the group Feeling light and loaded Overwhelmed by truth Thoughts of change are appealing With a thirst for youth Heavy breathing tonight Everything to lose You shouldn't get ahead of yourself You must cherish this fight you're livin' Now excess is your goal You try to seize control You're taking what you give How is our love like this? Came as no surprise Dancing through the lines Never leaves us alone Are you on your phone? Walk a tiny bit Take a sip Let it drip Let it all hold true And swing lower At long last Perpetual pleasure From privilege And fear My dear We made it here Do you hear the voice? You made your choice Shadows say what we're taking for granted Granted Granted There's some time And a place Where we can stay In our hands Maybe we just Started the battle With nothing Else but faith And it did us no good Stuck on little waves This town deep in my heart You are the only one Strung out before the run

Ten after twelve Past the fountain Satin figures Silver sanctuary  Classic behaviour  Of dicey flavour Tailored tongues  Telling lies of labour  Fruitful in nature Cross the marble Your truth is hollow More mild mannered misery To cope is insanity  In vanity  Attention all ablaze  All for what For what No guts It's popular  Laughing longer Living larger Each day The price we pay The pain remains  Cold crimes at play  Fall down the steps Surrounded  Fog faced figures Look astounded Fantasy to fruition  Visions  Of tired tattered tyranny  With which will be the death of me  No mystery  Detention all the way Every single day It's popular  Champagne chandelier  Portraits of all I fear Champagne chandelier

Dreams become a jones When you're forced to follow suit Pain is our truth Lived since youth White and black are two of The easiest to chew Easy for you When it's all you ever knew Don't ya Like what you see? Scorn smothering me It's hard to believe I look down at my feet Treat me incomplete As our screams belt free Knew it all along Blind to those who mock you Lost in between Intentions once clean To color unseen Search beneath the screen No leads No leads Up in arms is the charm Harm done so move on with your life Times we live Of glass and it's thin Chances are slim Shivers flow in Pools of blood we swim I've had my fill
