I've tried making a start on the lyrics for some of the songs off of the new album but I'm struggling with a few parts on some I'll throw them up here so you can help out.

1) Limits Lie

It's flooding over you now
Keep your chin up
I'm a hurricane
Came through the thunder
To drag you under
Make you take the blame
Remember me forever
I'm the weather
My tears are the rain
We're drowning together
I hope you're happy
Remember my name

Who knows
Where your limit
Where your limit lies
You give it
What you'll give it
And now the giver must die

I'm running catching up girl
Keep your feet up
I'm straight to the vein
You fall through the floors and
You take it all in
Now you feel the rain
Rolling down your cheeks, bleeding
Dripping to your feet, keep breathing
Stay with me

Who knows
Where your limit
Where your limit lies
You give it
What you'll give it
And now the giver must die

And the women
You've forgiven
Left you behind
Now your limit
Where your limit
Where your limit lies

Lump in your throat
Too hard to swallow
I'll go
Down cold for coming up tomorrow
I will
Retract
Footsteps back
For me to attack where I tracked
The love that I had

I said
Lump in your throat
Too hard to swallow
I'll go
Down cold for coming up tomorrow
I will
Retract
Footsteps back
For me to attack where I tracked
The love that I had

I said
Lump in your throat
Too hard to swallow
I'll go
Down cold for coming up tomorrow
I will
Retract
Footsteps back
For me to attack where I tracked
The love that I had

2) Don't You Find

Don't you find, some of the time
There is always someone on your mind
That shouldn't be at all
In any place or any kind (x2)

She sailed long ago
To a land far away
Overseas, she'll be
In a land of opportunity
I don't know where she roam
I don't know how she'll be
I know that I'll see
Sweet young thing one day before I go

And I give what I've got
And what I've got, I got to give
And I still [?]
We're nothing all the years
And I fall from it all
And I'll lose as I win
And I'll know where I go
It's got nothing more for me no more

Don't you find, some of the time
There is always someone on your mind
That shouldn't be at all
In any place or any kind (x2)

Don't you find

Can't remember [?] came here
Oh it's the same here
Oh it's just amazing, son
Can't remember [?] came here
There's so much pain here
Oh it's just amazing, son

3) Turn On The Light

You run down the strip, down the strip right through me
The rain on the windscreen blistering the stop sign
Turn into rubies, your mother did buy you
Through this land, ira
You made me bawl like a whore, wish I'd never been born
Got a good looking corpse hanging on to me tightly
Bless this strip as it runs right through me
Bless this strip as it runs right through me

She fades to the background
Proof reads a story
Kills all the characters and crosses out the heroine
Kissing an American, she told me she bored of me
Through this land, ira
She made me bawl like a whore, wish I'd never been born
Got a good looking corpse hanging on to me tightly
Bless this strip as it runs right through me
Bless this strip as it runs right through me

Oh, turn on the light
It's so dark in there
Inside her life

And I know what it's like
To feel love
And turn on the light yourself

She dragged all the blood to the back of my brain
Filled to the line, smoked on an elephant's tusk
Punch drunk bitten and bleeding I became tame
[?], one of us
And I hear mutants scream
And I ride on the crescent waves
And I stopped as the joke just [?]
And I still hear demons breathing

Oh, turn on the light
It's so dark in there
Inside her life

And I know what it's like
To feel love
And turn on the light yourself

The sun had dropped, I'm sweating in a carcass
I've given up on me, I've given up on Marcus
I'm carrying my casket, looking for the enemy
I'm down on my knees, surrendering to Valerie
And oh I feel my head is racing
And I feel my shoulders bracing
And I know I'm sick to my bones
And I know I'm gunna get get back home

Oh, turn on the light
It's so dark in there
Inside her life

And I know what it's like
To feel love
And turn on the light yourself

Take me far
From this sweet city stench
Where friends all betray each other
And I'm just another lover to her

Take me far
From this sweet city stench
Our friends all betray each other
And I'm just another lover to her friend

To her friend (x3)
Oh, take me far (x4)

4) Zombie

Love, she seems apart from me, possessed behind the eyes
Well apart from the frightening, the moaning, the biting he seemed to be a nice guy
And I know what she thinks when she looks at me, when she looks with such despair
You're not the only one around here, who needs a bit of fresh air

Cause I'm a sad sack, post teen
Could have been the love machine
No dream, come clean
Walking like a zombie
Like a zombie
And I'm a coal train, fast lane
Caught up in the dirty rain
No pain, no gain
Walking like a zombie
Like a zombie

Well, this old place here, man it's falling apart
She's on the road as she goes but she won't get far
I'm on a show to parole to the toad in the hole
I gotta grow some roots, gotta prop up the bar

I got blood shot eyes, and there's blood in my teeth
I got a ripped up jacket and a friend who's a thief
Well I'm a coughing out my mouth, trying to pull it out
But the fire inside keeps burning, burning out

Cause I'm a sad sack, post teen
Could have been the love machine
No dream, come clean
Walking like a zombie
Like a zombie
And I'm a coal train, fast lane
Caught up in the dirty rain
No pain, no gain
Walking like a zombie
Like a zombie

Hold your own in the situation, don't be afraid to be a friend
Cause I won't hurt you, girl or leave you a loose end
You make me alive enough to love again

Cause I'm a sad sack, post teen
Could have been the love machine
No dream, come clean
Walking like a zombie
Like a zombie
And I'm a coal train, fast lane
Caught up in the dirty rain
No pain, no gain
Walking like a zombie
Like a zombie (x2)

5) The Prophet

There's fire in her eyes in the altercation

She blames her poverty on her parents' generation
She said they sniffed it up their nose now they want our payments
It's fucking cold in here the landlord's tryna make us vagrants

And Jackie our whisky buddy hits him with an iron fist
The landlord goes down swinging while you drink your buddy's piss
I don't know what to do now that I'm definitely on a list
I'll just sit back, drink brew with Coca cola communists

I'm glad you came and turned up next to me

Like a grenade with the pin out at the party
You're like a fucking hurricane next to me
There's fire on the friends, we'll hold him down down

I think she lost her looks to the beauty and terror
She says her friends are fucked and in the fairest of weather
She asks me is it painless?
Am I humouring the brainless?
Being young and drunk and all fucked up and being in entertainment
I don't ask the questions
, I don't write the rules

I'm up for suggestions 
I will follow you through

It can't be any worse than what I've been up to
It can't be any worse than what I've been up to

I'm glad you came and turned up next to me

Like a grenade with the pin out at the party
You’re like a fucking hurricane next to me
There’s fire on the friends, we'll hold him down down
I don't know what it is that you’re doing to me
I haven't cracked a smile since '93
She says it's a pretty dull dull place to be

No shit Sherlock, shoot them down down down

I don't ask the questions, I don't write the rules
I'm up for suggestions 
I will follow you through

It can't be any worse than what I've been up to

It can't be any worse than what I've been up to

I'm glad you came and turned up next to me

Like a grenade with the pin out at the party
You’re like a fucking hurricane next to me
There’s fire on the friends, we'll hold him down down
I don't know what it is that you’re doing to me
I haven't cracked a smile since '93
She says it's a pretty dull dull place to be

No shit Sherlock, shoot them down down down

I don't ask the questions, I don't write the rules
I'm up for suggestions 
I will follow you through

It can't be any worse than what I've been up to

It can't be any worse than what I've been up to (x2)

I'm glad you came and turned up next to me

Like a grenade with the pin out at the party
You’re like a fucking hurricane next to me
There’s fire on the friends, we'll hold him down down
I don't know what it is that you’re doing to me
I haven't cracked a smile since '93
She says it's a pretty dull dull place to be

No shit Sherlock, shoot them down down down

6) Mary Lee

Whenever I look out the window
I see her leave
Whenever I sleep on the pillow
I hear her breathe
Whenever I look back
I can't believe
What a stupid, drunk boy I was to let Mary leave

Trade blows with the foes
Too young and I grow
This skin just doesn't fit me
Too many souls
Have lost their hold
On reality wearing these
So I took a pinch of my Ma
pinch of my Pa
And measured my own body
Now I got a suit of class
Made to last
Off a man off Newmont street

La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la

We're thick as thieves
Hearts on sleeves
Searching for memories
Blowing off steam
Just seventeen
Forgetting where we've been
So I took a tip from my Ma
Tip from my Pa
and walked around my dreams
Found me in a car
driving far
Away from the places I've seen

Whenever I look out the window
I see her leave
Whenever I sleep on the pillow
I hear her breathe
Whenever I look back
I can't believe
What a stupid, drunk boy I was to let Mary leave
Mary Lee (x4)

7) Trouble

Feel it in my feet
Feel it in the heat
There’s trouble on the street
And the trouble starts to move your way now
Feel it in the heat
Feel it in my feet
There’s trouble on the street
It’s not gonna work so move away now

Feel the heat
Feel the heat on the street

Well there I might lay low
Well I guess we'll wait and see
Wherever it is I go
Seems there's trouble finding me
I know I got time to run
But I know I got time to breathe
There’s no time like the present
To make this trouble stand up and leave

So say doo, dah doo, doo do the trouble
Dig up the down and burst up the bubble
I'm a shoot, delute, toot where there's trouble
Do the boogie down and move on the double
I'm a doo, dah doo, doo do the trouble
Pick up the shovel you got down the rubble
I'm a doo, dah doo, do where there's trouble
Do the boogie down and move on the double

So hold on
To what you got
You can lose it fast
In the dark days
So hold on
To what you got
You can lose it fast
In the rat race

Feel it in my feet
Feel it in the heat
There’s trouble on the street
And the trouble starts to move your way now
Feel it in the heat
Feel it in my feet
There’s trouble on the street
It’s not gonna work so move away now

Doo, dah doo, doo do the trouble
Dig up the down and burst up the bubble
I'm a shoot, delute, toot where there's trouble
Do the boogie down and move on the double
I'm a doo, dah doo, doo do the trouble
Pick up the shovel you got down the rubble
I'm a doo, dah doo, do where there's trouble
Do the boogie down and move on the double

Shoot, shoot, shoot the man's trouble
Too, too, too many boots on the level
Shoot, shoot, shoot the man's trouble
Just seen too many boots on the rubble

So hold on
To what you got
You can lose it fast
In the dark days
So hold on
To what you got
You can lose it fast
In the rat race (x2)

Shoot, shoot, shoot the man's trouble
Too, too, too many boots on the level
Shoot, shoot, shoot the man's trouble
Just seen too many boots on the rubble (x2)

8) Rabbit Hole

Sold to a bid then hit by a buyer
Lift the lid on a kids took the piss then retire
Paris said she get underhand
She always let you down when she knows that she can (?)
Like a SA80, my baby save me
Even played me and jammed in a (?)
Like a essay, she tried to correct me
She meant to protect me but only betrayed me now

You're too proud to call
Guess I never knew you at all
You stoop low
I got high
Tonight

Lally la
She trips and stumbles
Go see Alice in the palace to crumble
Lally la
She trips to tumble
Go and roll down a rabbit hole (x2)

Still know you can call me whenever
I'm always round town
Man I'll be around forever
I'll take the blame, I'll take the weather
I'll travel overseas, sell the snow back to the favelas
I'm magnamimous
Life's jesture
Only for the sake of posterity
It's unamimous
I'll arrest her
Four days in the cells of the Bailey now

You're too proud to call
Guess I never knew you at all
You stoop low
I got high
Tonight

Lally la
She trips and stumbles
Go see Alice in the palace to crumble
Lally la
She trips to tumble
Go and roll down a rabbit hole (x2)

I said who noticed the problems
In Jennifer Bennett's head?
I swear, she's not the same person that I grew up with
She's not the same person I met (x3)

Lally la
She trips and stumbles
Go see Alice in the palace to crumble
Lally la
She trips to tumble
Go and roll down a rabbit hole (x4)

9) Peter

Sometimes I feel like there's someone in my head
Sometimes I feel like there's someone in my head
Sometimes I feel like that someone has a name
Sometimes I feel that he wants me dead

(Peter)

(Peter)

Peter don't believe in love
Peter doesn't like this song
Peter piss electric fence
Peter doesn't like my friends
Peter doesn't believe in God
Peter just falls apart
Every time he hears ya say, hears ya say
"Jenny, what you on about?"


Last them shake, retake, retake, hey
Wilin' up, Peter isn't going nowhere
Juice in, juice out, sniffs it out
Shoots about town, with a rocky, such a cool hair
Shouts for the sister, for the backbone gutter
Look him up, down, or someone better go and get her
Used it up, Peter's gunna rock this Summer
If no one else do it then Peter's gunna

Peter don't believe in love
Peter doesn't like this song
Peter piss electric fence
Peter doesn't like my friends
Peter doesn't like your band
Peter says you all sound bland
Peter wants to fuck your girl
Peter wants to fuck the world

(I warned you all) (x3)

Peter doesn't like the numpties, making lots of money
Off my ideas then calling them their own
Peter doesn't say he's pretty, in fact damn he's ugly
He doesn't like company he's drinking alone
Screams at the telly to the jukebox fodder
Someone come and get me when you need your going under
And I, life saver, live forever, up a level
Peter's coming for you, gunna hide in the treble

Peter don't believe in love
Peter doesn't like this song
Peter piss electric fence
Peter doesn't like my friends
Peter doesn't believe in God
Peter just falls apart
Every time he hears you say, hears you say
"Jenny, what you on about?"

(I warned you all) (x7)

10) Love Is Only A Heartbeat Away

So roll, roll down, rob a railroad train
Lil (?) I rob before, dear Jessie James
Heart full of love but I'm only here to kill her

Fear that the devil may have spoke too soon
And ran through the room with a bottle of you
Fell down in a chair that was where I heard him sing.

And he sang love
Is only a heartbeat away
Better save it for
The darkest of your days
And he sang love
Is only a heartbeat away
Better save it for
The darkest of your days

So I raised my glass to the Holy Ghost
Father and Son that you love the most
St. Peter won't you please forgive her
Turn yourself an old blind eye
Damn heaven knows we tried
And now it's never heard Ma sing

And she sang love
Is only a heartbeat away
Better save it for
The darkest of your days
And she sang love
Is only a heartbeat away
Better save it for
The darkest of your days

And I know I wasn't around
Half as much as I could’ve
And I never let you say
Half as much as you would've
As you would've

So roll, roll down, rob a railroad train
Lil (?) I rob before, dear Jessie James
Heart full of love but I'm only here to kill her.

Remember me for mistakes I've made
I always did leave when I shoulda stayed
And oh my sins taught me how to sing

And I sang love
Is only a heartbeat away
Better save it for
The darkest of your days
And I sang love
Is only a heartbeat away
Better save it for
The darkest of your days

11) Murder Of Crows

[?] of the green
Brick to the love
It's hot in the guts
I'm gunna grip to the rail
I'm hung and I'm hooked
Fixing the sail
She sticks a root down on her meagre frame
Once is the with
And one is without
Perceiving a ghost
I'm gunna stick to the trail
I wanna get in
I wanna get out
She sticks a root down on her meagre frame

How can we love like this?
(Guess life is like a roller coaster)
In life love nor did my skin
(Guess nothing I should never trust her)
I don't know where I've been
(Think nothing of a love and leave ya)
Don't know nothing about him
(But I know that you've been seen out together)

of the green
Brick to the love
It's hot in the guts
I'm gunna grip to the rail
I'm hung and I'm hooked
Fixing the sail
She sticks a root down on her meagre frame

Am I strong enough baby to hate
(Set fire to the revelator)
The shogun turned up late
(On a runaway train tryna set a wager)
And there's a light twice shining bright in my eyes
(It's an oncoming train to take ya)
Out of my life and in to his wife
(I'll be waiting, hope I'll see ya later)

[?] of the green
Brick to the love
It's hot in the guts
I'm gunna grip to the rail
I'm hung and I'm hooked
Fixing the sail
She sticks a root down on her meagre frame
Once is the with
And one is without
Perceiving a ghost
I'm gunna stick to the trail
I wanna get in
I wanna get out
She sticks a root down on her meagre frame

The combination so slow
Walking on old eggshells
Singing with a murder of crows
Walking on old eggshells (x4)

[?] of the green
Brick to the love
It's hot in the guts
I'm gunna grip to the rail
I'm hung and I'm hooked
Fixing the sail
She sticks a root down on her meagre frame
Once is the with
And one is without
Perceiving a ghost
I'm gunna stick to the trail
I wanna get in
I wanna get out
She sticks a root down on her meagre frame

12) They Told Me It Rained

Between a birth cry
And a death will
There's just houses
So lavish
In your anguish
I can tell
You're chasing your tail
Soaked through sheets
She didn't die quite right
So light up the leader
So light up the leader
So light a believer
To the juggernaught days

I give up
I give in
Just show me love
Show me love
You're never lost
I'll never win
Just show me love
Show me love
And ask the boy who would be king
Just show me love
Show me love
I'll never ask for anything
Just show me love, show me love

Can't breathe
Feed the black dog
Refuse to breathe
Refuse to fuck
And oh my love
She played a cool pinball
They told me it rained
Yeah, they told me it rained

I give up
I give in
Just show me love
Show me love
You're never lost
I'll never win
Just show me love
Show me love
And ask the boy who would be king
Just show me love
Show me love
I'll never ask for anything
Just show me love, show me love

Heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy monster sound (x8)

I give up
I give in
Just show me love
Show me love
You're never lost
I'll never win
Just show me love
Show me love
And ask the boy who would be king
Just show me love
Show me love
I'll never ask for anything
Just show me love, show me love

I give up
I give in
Just show me love
Show me love
You're never lost
I'll never win
Just show me love
Show me love
And ask the boy who would be king
Just show me love
Show me love
I'll never ask for anything
Just show me love, show me love

Just show me love, just show me love (x6)

Just added Love Is Only A Heartbeat Away and made the change to Zombie suggested by Lips.

Still a few lines missing on the ones I've attempted and quite a few songs left to do if anyone fancies helping? :lol:
