So Divided – 2006

So Divided track list and lyrics

Intro: A Song of Fire and Wine (Instrumental)

Stand in Silence

I had a house on a rock
I turned around and it had gone to rot
All that was left of me were walls of doubt
I asked a question but the world returned with silence
All that I wanted to know was where'd everyone else go?

I had a dad, had a mom
I had a family, don't know what went wrong
I watched them helpless as their blood turned sour
Wanted to scream for them but had to stand in silence
All that I wanted to know was where'd everyone else go?

I had a band, had a song
I had a vision, where's my vision gone?
I turned inside to find the walls of doubt
My mind was stripped of sound, I had to stand in silence
All that I wanted to know was where'd everyone else go?

Wasted State of Mind

Talking 'bout things we've seen
Paris to Oslo seem like dreams
Looking back, was it real
You know how things sometimes feel
You can run but get no further than
Three city blocks from where you began
Caught in a wasted state of mind

Here you come here you come,
Now that you're gone
Where will it take me?
Why am I waiting?

Caught in a stasis, feel like I've wasted all this time
With people and places who've never related or desired

Naked Sun

I'm a naked sun, see right through me
I'm a naked sun
I have no clouds to conceal me
I have not one
Maybe someday I'll forget
To rise up but it hasn't happened yet
I've got you sunburnt now

In the morning rise up to greet me
And say I'm number one
In the evening cry when I'm leaving
And the day is done
Maybe someday I'll confess
A love once warm gone cold like all the rest
I've got you sunburnt now

I'm a naked sun, see right through me
I'm a naked sun
I'm not the moon you thought you left me
So bright have I become
Maybe someday I'll accept
Your faults, til then I'll curse the day we met
I've got you sunburnt now

I'll burn a way out

Gold Heart Mountain Top Queen Directory
Written by Robert Pollard

Cold hands touching my face
Don't hide - the snake can see you
Old friends you might not remember
Fading away from you
The goldheart mountain top queen directory
The goldheart mountain top queen directory
And we looked
And we passed
Through the hallways of shatterproof glass
She runs through the night as if nobody cares
She screams and she cries and ignores all the stares
She wants me to come, but i'm never going there
The goldheart mountain top queen directory
The goldheart mountain top queen directory

So Divided

Here the noise back in town
Let's gather everyone
And go see what they're
Up to now
Driving in, driving out
From hotel to the bar
All our friends are here
But somehow we seem so divided

We're the voice crying out
Screaming every song
Not that anyone understands
Diving in, diving out
The terrified crowd
All our bands are here
But somehow they seem so divided
If you want to see where the fight is
Look around...

I hear the sound of a voice inside my head
Saying things that I can't understand
Telling me a life may soon be dead
I wonder from what hand
The words they say are too hard to conceive
I try my best to never listen
Can't you see I'm struggling to conceal
These thoughts from everyone?
It's not that I don't care
And I don't want to hurt you
It's just the worst fear is coming out
Coming out of me

You know I've heard you say that I'm not real
I know you think that I don't understand
Truth is I am trying hard to deal
This is not what I Planned
It's not that I don't care
It's not that I don't love you
It's just that I am here
To put you out of your misery

All of you lovers who think you are in love
I'll put you out of your misery
All of your children born under the sky
I'll put you out of your misery
Venom that you can't conceive
Is pouring out of the depths of me
You think you're free. you've been deceived
I'll put you out of your misery
You think the future is warm and bright
But it is death and I'm your destiny
You think you'll be protected by God
I'll put you out of your misery
I was put down to bring you down And put you out.

Life

Another page of history
Another failed and hopeless year
Of wasted life and wasted time
Long ago you sang a tune
Of running from a painful youth
And now it's dry, you're wondering why

Talk to me, reveal how lost your life must seem
All the wonderful things that you could never achieve
Now you're out of time, you're life is dry, you're wondering why

Remember how it used to be
You were young and love was cheap
And every night was fire and wine
Now you face another year
In a lonely state, in an empty place
wiping dry your crying eyes
wipe and dry your crying eyes

Talk to me, reveal how lost your life must seem
All the wonderful things that you could never achieve
Now you're out of time, you're life is dry, you're wondering why

...I lost the rainbow
Behind that cloud, I lost the rainbow there
It's hard getting over the rain
It's hard getting older all the same

Eight Day Hell

Wasting away the better part of the day
In the bus on the clocks of the UK
We walked down the street on that all hallows eve
But couldn't wait to get back to the US of A

The torture of eight days straight
Without sight of your face is so frightening
Hoping to make it |straight
Or find signs of a bite that wont taste like poison

In London we played half an hour a day
For a house full of neds who are wanting us dead
In Glasgow and leeds we find signs of relief
An escape from our grief with a fistful of E's

Eight day hell
You're in an eight day hell

Witches Web

Told a lie about yourself
It felt so good to deceive
You pulled the wool over everyone
Told them whatever they'd believe

You missed the train and now you're gone
To join the faceless everyone
You're a name on a phone list I've crossed off
I've pushed you back to square one

And if I fall then I'll stand back up
Because learning how to run is half the fun
Somehow I know that there must be something better
No one's gonna have power over me

If there's a sign above the door
That says you have to hang your coat
But you're wanting me to pay the doorman with my soul
I think that I'll be moving on

Your witch's web is hanging over my sleep
My one half lies awake, the other in a dream
Somehow I know that there must be something better
No one's gonna have power over me

Segue: In the Realms of the Unreal (Instrumental)

Sunken Dreams

I remember dessert places
Shadowless and cold
Where heaven looks down
On this empty hole
Lovers here to taste the ruins
Dark and obscene
But all I want is you
In my sunken dreams

I remember all the places
I remember when we met
You alone and graceless
We covered in sweat
We hid among the empty isle
Shuddered 'neath the scene
And your lips reached out
In my sunken dreams
