"Shine" as written by James Patrick Glennie, Lawrence Gott and Timothy Booth....
Shot myself - ricochet
Crisis as an opportunity
Curtain call to loud applause
As you fall upon your sword

Wake up in a stranger's bed
Hangover and then some
Can't remember what was said
What's her name and what we've done
Wake up in a stranger's bed
This one stresses income
On the rich list, born and bred
Blames attached to every sum

Shot myself - ricochet
Crisis as an opportunity
Loud applause
Revealing the conceal - loser
Shot myself - ricochet
Crisis as an opportunity
Curtain falls to loud applause
The tattoo says it all
Hope and glory

Where is the peace
And the whole
In a half-life
I can't control my saboteur
Call it my nature
Name it addiction
Kiss on the lips will soon turn sour
Innocence lost in the grip of a hand job
After the surge of ecstasy
I'm walking out the door
Hope and glory

Sh sh sh shine like a ghost
Sh sh sh shine to be loved the most
When you're gone your songs outlive your story

    General CommentI did not like this song right away, but it grew on me very quickly and it's now my favorite off the new album. Such great lyrics.
