You dropped the Bomb
Using all your chlorine
You find yourself
So far down its normal
There at your feet
A slow burn comes
To carry you back
To earth or where you're from

You feed me whole
Varyid Nutrients
I lost control
I trashed all my instincts

I wanted to escape to feel nothing at all

(Chorus)
Cause they're alive
You spoke to me
Opened the skies
Of my empathy
My valentine
You wrote to me
Will you ever come again?

England Is Gone
The way of the Gypsies
We do what we can
Within the systems

I hope you feel the earth turn inside of you

(Chorus)
Cause they're alive
When they spoke to me
Broke with the skies
Of my Empathy
American Eyes
So close to me
Will you ever come again?
Will you ever come again?
Will you ever come again?

A heavy load
And a fucked up system
You're on your own
With all your instance
All you see is all you get
Surfing on the waves of promises...

(Chorus)
Modern time
She wrote to me
American Eyes
So close to me
American Eyes
So close to me
American Eyes

Will you ever come again?
Will you ever come again?
(American Eyes)
(American Eyes)
Will you ever come again?
Will you ever come again?
Will you ever come again? (American Eyes)

They left this song off GOLDEN STATE rightn before release for unknown reasons, so its mastered and sound ...simply amazing. one of their best songs in a long time. if you want to download it....which you should...go to the bush fan site "English Fire" youll find it. Use a search engine. Awesome song.

    General Commenti love this song. I was waiting for someone to put the lyrics up b/c im lazy. Anyways, i think that should have made golden state too. And it should have been a single. But oh well....

    General CommentThis is an amazing song. Fugitive should have taken the back seat, and this song should have made the album. I guess you could blame the album producers...
