Our Lady Peace
1994 Sony Music Canada
all words by Raine Maida 


1. The Birdman:

Hopelessly a man starts to feed your day
Once he was there you never looked back
How did you think that his words might just fade away
He seemed harmless enough so you let him in and now you'll pay
I can't see him but he's stalking my thoughts

How does it feel when you can't concentrate? I just stare
All of your daydreams are a seesaw for him to play on
Now how do you feel when he calls your name
You can plug your ears but it's not the same
How do you know when he pulls you back
Oh it pulls you back

Chorus:
Get it on, get it on. get it on
Nobody's wrong, nobody's right the birdman wouldn't lie
Nobody's wrong, nobody's right I just can't trust him tonight

How do you forget a stranger that plagues your days
We arm ourselves when there's nothing to fear right? wrong!
How does it feel when it comes to pass
There's something there but it's just not quite right
How does it fell, does it make you mad?

(Chorus)

I feel him, I feel him close
I feel him, ahh
I feel him, oooohhhh!
Oh, oh, but I'm doing fine

(Chorus)


2. Supersatellite

I've read the bilble, I've read Dylan
I'm reading people now because it's much more chilling
But I sit on a sattelite with the stars made of gold
And there's life through that hallow lens
But I know, I know

Supersatellite

I watch the traffic, I find the seeds
And one man in particular well he's not what he seems
So I can't focus in on the lies in his head
He's convinced that his blood is blue but it's red

Supersatellite

And nothing dazzles me,
I am in his dreams
And nothing is shocking
Ttransparent human being 

Supersatellite

On the soul, inside the world
Far better in the eye, inside the mind
Fuck you! I am you, you hear me?
Stop crying, stop crying.


3. Starseed:

I let go of the world I was holding a passenger that could not fly
in search of soul in search of something let it go let it slide

Chorus:
When I find out what we are
We'll bring it back but it won't be easy
They won't believe how a man he could drown in a starseed

I hoped to find why this world wasn't glowing
It darker as we end this ride
I've fallen back under the equator
I'm back inside we're back inside

(Chorus)

It's over nothing nothing

When I find out what we are
We'll bring it back but it won't be easy
They won't believe the man he could
But I'd choose starseed over nothing, nothing

Starseed over, starseed over


4. Hope

Hope climbs atop of the piano
Reaching out towards the warmth of the sun
Some man tries to ask her down
Well now maybe that's where she belongs
My god she said: "I'm the sunflower who wants"
My god he said: "This woman is gone"

Into the dark is there anybody there
My god she said

He climed up top to find that she was slipping
Let her go, let her go, let me go
How long must they leave before they're winning
They don't know, they don't know, they just don't know

My god she said: "We're the sunflowers want"
My god he said: "The woman is gone"

Into the dark is there anybody there
My god she said

If she can't be there I know it's best that nothing is denied
If she can't be there I know it's best that everyone change sides 

Into the dark is there anybody there
Into the light, the light, the light
My god she said: "My god!"

If she can't be there I know it's best that nothing is denied
If she can't be there I know it's best that everyone change sides 


5. Naveed

Come, come Naveed...

Are you there, and is it comfortable?
Did you want to escape, try to escape the population?
The pressure is deceiving and for you particularly
To let a young man die?
Oh, let him die if he wants to

Chorus:
I can't live here anymore
But it's hard when you reach for that floor
There's something that tears me inside
So I can't go

Bother are you there?
Tel me is it wonderful, oh
Were you hoping to find something a little more?
Climbing down the hours I need to know now
Do the hands of time only rule this chapter
I'll have to try once again
I'll have to try when want I want to

(Chorus)

There he's on his knees again trying hard to understand
Why naveed would let a young man die
Convinced that he might break he reaches for the phone
And then another day is gone

(Chorus)

Come, come Naveed...


6. Dirty Walls

So you feel the stain of
Dried up discussions without weight
It's that feeling that you will not have to destroy
It's that feeling that you will not have to ignore

The dirty walls

So you've been plagued but is everything ok
I cannot bear the shallow words they throw
It's that feeling that you will not have to employ
It's that felling that you will not - it's gotta go

The dirty walls

The conversation is going nowhere
It's transparent as fuck
The conversation must be over
Because all I see is mud

The dirty walls


7. Denied

The telephone is ringing - disconnect the line
The tension is building but I'm alright, yeah I'm alright
The stars are colliding so you might as well let me go

The television is burning I set it on fire
The wheels they keep turning, but I'm fine
What about the questions we have locked up inside

Chorus:
Somewhere, somehow we've been denied
Hand and hand we walk behind
Pretending, defending while our souls are tied

It's only the third hour, my conscience subsides
But something will remind me that you lied
What about the consequences? This can't be right

(Chorus)


8. Is It Safe?

Time can't fix it fast enough
So we won't notice what it was went wrong
I saw somthing there that was much too familiar
A butterfly with a broken wing

She's fallen under, she's past the end
Communication is down and down and down
The scars have healed but they are back again
We've got to believe this man must bend
Cause if you could you'd try to destroy her
And there we would be with nothing at all

Chorus
Is it safe to be a man when your tired and lonely
Only the confident know where to stand
Is it safe to be a man when the world is loaded
Thousands that can't figure out just what they did

Time can't fix it fast enough
So we won't mesure just how far below
You kept pushing her you'll have to pay back
All the years that you stole

She's walking backwards, she spun around
Her ears are ringing loud
She's on her knees please understand
It's obvious it this man must bend
Cause if you could you'd try to destroy her
And there we would be with nothing at all

(Chorus)


9. Julia

Can you see her standing there
And well she trying to find just anywhere
There are flowers in her hand
And she doesn't know why

And offered is advice to you
But all you do was fake it

Chorus:
(Mother) And she's only yours tonight
(Mother) Oh she never cries
(Mother) But I know there is hurt inside
(Mother) Julia

Drowning in her own visions
She's begging the past to stay behind
A black cat in the night, and there's a black cat in that sky

But offered is advice to you
You left but I don't blame you

(Chorus)

We're digging up the past
Cross it, cross it, cross that line
To bury, to bury, to bury it one last time

But offered is advice to you
I know there's pain inside that truth
But you just gotta take it

(Chorus)


10. Under Zenith

Maybe they'll come back again
Maybe they've all gone
One day you'll find me
Sending this message stong

Under your feet the city falls
Down so far the ground is sky
We're under zenith again
It's healthy if not for long

Leave a little room for us to breathe

Much more than seven days
You've slipped to deep
Much stronger than sympathy
Let your best friend pull back that leash

Sitting by a frozen man
Someone somewhere has to cry
We're under zenith again
Let the cycle run we don't die

Leave a little room for us to breathe

I love, love how you let me fall
Under, under not to far
I love, love how you let me fall
Only now I see where we are
Hold me


11. Neon Crossing

All you people can you feel it waiting
Innocence and love
Wrapped in the arms of the burning neon
I feel it, I feel it

It's so entertaining and so wonderful
It magically calls for you

Chorus:
Big neon crossing show me the way
Big neon crossing save my soul today

Don't you worry and don't be afraid
does it send you to the world appealing
There is spoken word that I can't take
So I'm the liar, I'm the liar

You're so disappointed to find out
That the magic was not really meant for you

(Chorus)

I can't wait, and I can't be a liar
I can't wait, and I can't be a liar

(Chorus)
