Rodent Just the other day I was thinking it would be great to have a collection of these Youtube tunes in one album... And then as if by magic, this collection appeared... Seems to include all of the singles released here, and maybe more... Favorite track: The Game (YouTube version).

God, I don't understand what all this is about. Making plans to understand, While this world just falls apart. God, I can't see the humanity in pictures on the screen No share and care, just break and bruise, Shaping up to live and lose. This is an ode to her. She would have loved your people to sing Praise to you, Father You are everything. I know you've got her, Your darling daughter Heaven must be filled with laughter As I sing this ode to her. God, I know your heart breaks whenever silence shatters grace. Tears fall down to the sound Of a world where evil's found. God, you say that you'll repay wipe away our tears someday. Justice and mercy, tie up the story Grace unleashed to bring you glory. This is an ode to her. She would have loved your people to sing Praise to you, Father You are everything. I know you've got her, Your darling daughter Heaven must be filled with laughter As I sing this ode to her. It seems this world's in mourning. Longing for an end to this story. And for once I heed the warning; Help me leave this world with something more. This is an ode to her. She would have loved your people to sing Praise to you, Father You are everything. I know it hurts you that's how I trust you Hearts breaks more than any ought to As I sing this ode to her.

Roses, she brought them everyday. Roses, love had come to pay. The desperation clouded you, my friend. Loving gifts aren't always heaven sent. Samson, can't you see? No strength can set you free. Her face may be divine But it's the hidden pain behind that you can't see. Like roses, her thorns aren't what you need. Roses are never what you need. She says, a secret's only weakness. She says, give it all to me. But don't you be confused of her intent. She doesn't have the same moral sense. Samson, can't you see? No strength can set you free. Her face may be divine But it's the hidden pain behind that you can't see. Like roses, her thorns aren't what you need. Roses are never what you need. And some say, love is easy But when your back's against the wall Left with no choice at all. It doesn't seem that way, Someone has to pay so you've one last chance to tear down the enemy. Samson, can't you see? No strength can set you free. Her face may be divine But it's the hidden pain behind that you can't see. Like roses, her thorns aren't what you need. Roses are never what you need.

I never thought I'd learn to say What's really on my mind today. The words, a million miles away Just never seemed to start. I guess I should be brave today It's all that you deserve, and may I hold on to you always, I pray We will not depart. A thousand words are blowing in the wind. What dream is this, the life I've entered in? Don't let the morning come; I'd like This night to never end. How strange that I could feel this way The words appear lit up in flames. And now this happens day by day Why this change of heart? A thousand words are blowing in the wind. What dream is this, the life I've entered in? Don't let the morning come; I'd like This night to never end.

Went walking down town to the old record store. Met a man sitting down on a dusty wooden floor. He said “I ain't gotta clue what we do this for- One more day's gonna kill me, even one day more.” I said, “Mr, I hear, and I feel your pain. Been walking round these same old streets once again. Seems to me this life goes on in vain. He said, “You're preaching to the choir, don't it drive you insane.” He said trains come through here 100 times an hour, at 100 miles an hour. It's no joke dear, Think it's gonna stop? Well you'd better think again. Check out the schedule up here in your head. No we don't stop for weekends Not a single day off. Once you get on No you're never getting off. He said. The man grabbed a light and drew a cigarette out. Just in time to hear the shopkeeper shout. “Outta here, don't want no stinking, scrounging layabouts.” And as he left I said “I just wish you'd let me hear him out.” [Chorus] Now it's been four months, but I'm feeling years behind. Trains keeping rhythm like clockwork up inside. And as I spot the old man playing chicken with his time. I said, “you're right it won't keep quiet in this stupid old head of mine.” I said trains come through here 100 times an hour, at 100 miles an hour. It's no joke, hear- I thought that it would stop, but now I've thought again. Checked out the schedule up here in my head. No we don't stop for weekends Not a single day off. Now that I'm on No I'm never getting off. I said.

Firelines in the sky Burn into my eyes. Fire flies, climb so high Buzzing through my mind. And we've battered through the ages Torn apart the walls to sleep. But now the crashes have broken in And silence is just a dream. Symptoms of design Desire fate to align. Mumblings of a broken soul Alive but forgotten how to breathe. And we're scattered through the ages. Thrown off the need for heat. But loudness shakes the time divide And silence is just a dream. And when he holds you do you still feel nothing? When she hurts you do you feel no pain? It's a strange world where love is real But life is just a game. Life is just a game. And we're scattered through the ages. Thrown off the need for heat. But loudness shakes the time divide And silence is just a dream. Silence is just a dream. Silence is just your dream.

Now it seems your pain is my pain Nothing that I do is able to contain This feeling inside when you're away. It's keeping me up, keeping me awake. It seems that our lives have become intertwined Bones disconnected, you've broken inside. Now we may as well be rocket men on a mission to Mars But these stars speak straight into our hearts. All I want to have, is have you near But the miles in between us grow into years. It's killing me inside to be here one more night While you'll be hurting, healing out of sight. It seems that our lives have become intertwined Bones disconnected, our emotions coincide. Now we may as well be rocket men on a mission to Mars But these stars speak straight into our hearts. Time is stretching, seeping into corners A pretty picture but a lonely desert view. And if I'm honest sometimes I'm just scared it's you I'll lose; Still can't believe it's me that you would ever choose. It seems that our lives have become intertwined Bones disconnected, our emotions coincide. Now we may as well be rocket men on a mission to Mars But these stars speak straight into our hearts.

There's something about this cold, empty house Which pulls me further to you. A life lived alone Is a life I'd rather not do. Please, I can't take it, can't shake off this feeling That I am the one who's at fault. And now I'm so scared This sweetness is turning to salt. Make your way back to me Make your way back to me. The thunder outside is seeping inside, speaking straight to this cold, empty heart; To have loved and then lost I understand now we are apart. Make your way back to me Make your way back to me. Did you say, why did you say Take it now or leave it pray As if there were ever a choice? You know all I ever wanted Was all you ever wanted Was all we ever wanted in life. Make your way back to me Make your way back to me.

I messed up bad, got it all so wrong. Tangled you up in the words of a song. I guess my apologies got lost in the post Or maybe I just never had the strength and had to let it go. Alex, oh Alex, didn't know what you were thinking of. Alex, oh Alex, I never said enough is enough. And I know, I know, I know, I know, I should have had the guts to say. But I was young and held my tongue, I knew no other way I'm sorry to say. Sometimes your brain likes to play games. Tell you you want what you don't really want then run and hide away. I felt so bad for leading you on. Maybe it's nothing but sometimes I worry so here's my sorry in a song. [Chorus] In all honesty I never believed Someone would want someone like me. Caught up in denial that old vicious spiral Took the best out of me. I was the frog and you were the prince You handled it well so I flinch. 'Cos I treated you bad and I'm sorry for that But you're a love I would never have had. [Chorus] One day you'll see this sorry I sing Or maybe it'll pass by you completely. You might forget but I will regret; How could I be so mean to say no through a screen? Alex, you come back to haunt me.

Working late, my head's a mess But right now I couldn't care less Cause right now, life is good. One strike down, another to come These days I work for fun But these days, life is good! Did you ever get the feeling this is where you're meant to be? Ohh... Crazy, maybe Maybe hazy Full on, tell me Worth it completely. Sometimes lonely Often scary But when all's said and done Life is good! Up too early for my brain to catch on Up too early to put my thinking cap on But God knows, life is good. I guess it's a just a deal I made Happiness in a single trade You see me now? Life is good! Did you ever get the feeling this is where you're meant to be? Ohh... Crazy, maybe Maybe hazy Full on, tell me Worth it completely. Sometimes lonely Often scary But when all's said and done Life is good! We're walking in the footsteps of the best And we won't be overshadowed by the rest. Crazy, maybe Maybe hazy Full on, tell me Worth it completely. Sometimes lonely Often scary But when all's said and done Life is good!

I want to love those tendrils Of vanishing thoughts that won't stay still. Tell you I'm home When we align. I want to love those grey cells, Tell you I love them as well. That's what I want But only for you. One thing led to another. Now we have each other. I promise I won't wander. They say that love can conquer so let's test it out Forever and longer. I want to love those blue eyes Get lost in the red of sunrise. That's what I want But only with you. I want to love our timing Because I found a friend worth finding. That moment in time Now forever entwined. One thing led to another. Now we have each other. I promise I won't wander. They say that love can conquer so let's test it out Forever and longer.

Life is a gift; don't take it for granted Or squander it looking for faith At the bottom of a bottle Or looking for love in his eyes Because he just can't satisfy. So you what? You got lost looking for love? Well now that you've been messed around Don't you think you're worth so much more Than a smooth talking liquor Who only shows his face When it's too late? Irresistible pleasures That can't repay. Life is a gift; don't take it for granted Or waste it looking for redemption In a lie that tangles quickly. Or looking for revival, to find The emptiness of a knife. So you what? You got lost looking for love? Well now that you've been messed around Don't you think you're worth so much more Than a smooth talking liquor Who only shows his face When it's too late? Irresistible pleasures That can't repay. Admit you've been looking In the wrong place.

Sitting on your white and fluffy cloud Don't know what you're doing don't wanna come down I hate to tell you this is what you left behind. Well yes, life's a mess but I would have thought That someone would have showed you how it worked Hiding your head has never solved a thing. Oo-oo-h, just take a step back, oh Grab your life back. Shut out the crushing dark Take a good old look inside your heart It doesn't take much to feel afraid, It's just the way we play the game. Floating in your blue lagoon Just drifting where the world pulls you What's your purpose when all you do is stare? Oo-oo-h, just take a step back, oh Grab your life back. Shut out the crushing dark Take a good old look inside your heart It doesn't take much to feel afraid, It's just the way we play the game. Games, games, games, just play the game. Games, (don't you want to play the) Games, (come along and play the) Games, just play the game. Oo-oo-h, just take a step back, oh Grab your life back. Shut out the crushing dark Take a good old look inside your heart It doesn't take much to feel afraid, It's just the way we play the game.

I know you're set in your ways And I know that you think that that's okay But I don't. 'Cause there's too many people who walk this earth Everything in their hand but a sense of self worth I know. But one day you will look into that mirror and see The person who you were designed to be. Don't lose sight of her. Mirror, mirror. The devil will use it to get to you But you gotta be strong don't let him through 'Cause you're strong girl You're stronger. I know you think I don't understand That life is hard and nothing goes like planned But I do. 'Cause too many times I've heard you say That for once in your life you don't want to run away. Mirror, mirror. The devil will use it to get to you But you gotta be strong don't let him through 'Cause you're strong girl You're stronger. You look on by you don't let it show How much it really hurts you don't want them to know But I'm never going to let you sink that low again. (x3) Mirror, mirror. The devil will use it to get to you But you gotta be strong don't let him through 'Cause you're strong girl You're stronger.

Words, words, words. Words don't suffice when this city divides. We're stronger when peace is alive. The cold battle cries still rip through my mind. Though I know the war's won in time. Tell me simply why war exists. Tell me gently how love can miss. Tell me slowly why a world like this exists. Words, words, words. In the waiting I find my sadness in life. And an endless stream of 'why's. It's a trust exercise in the God who's on high As we love, yet lovers die. Tell me simply why war exists. Tell me gently how love can miss. Tell me slowly why a world like this exists. Tell me simply why sorrows list. Tell me gently how trouble hits. But tell me slowly 'cause I can't control a thing... But tell me simply how I'm loved like this. Tell me gently how I am His. Tell me quickly 'cause I need to hear of this. (x2) Words, words, words. It's a trust exercise when this city divides. Seems impossible yet so worth the fight.
