LOST MY NERVE

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 On a whim or some fancy You take me out and you break me I don’t fit in I feel stupid Give me a break ‘cos I told you man I’m fuckin’ sick of listening To some rich kids Playing on their guitars Their guitars Their guitars Tonight. TOnight, yeah... Should I yell from the rafters? Or should I silently yield? Should I say what I’m thinking? Or should I hide how I feel? ‘Cos I’m sick of listenin' To all them big men Banging on their drums On their drums On their drums On their drums I really lost my nerve tonight I really lost my nerve Tonight. Tonight, yeah I really lost my nerve tonight I really lost my nerve Tonight, Tonight, Tonight, yeah

OXYGEN

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 Rock and roll Once again The time has come to save my skin And not to make it easier Just to make it fun All I’ve got is Where I’ve been All I know and all I’ve seen Just makes me dizzy all the time Like too much oxygen So fill up your lungs Pack your bags for the sun And I won’t make you promises Or tell you how the story ends Oxygen Oxygen Oxygen

SHE'S LIKE A COMET

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 Starting a fire Secret admirers Stolen exchanges Measured denial I hope you come around Coming and going Every moment Falls through the sky Erupting and glowing I hope you come around I hope you come around Just like something Comes out of nothing She ain’t the done thing Yeah she’s different Nervous and twitching Sparks and emissions Keeping a finger On the ignition I hope you come around Brother to sister Sister to brother Far and away Orbiting each other I hope you come around I hope you come around Just like something Comes out of nothing She ain’t the done thing Yeah she’s different Oh she’s like a comet Oh she’s like a comet Oh she’s like a comet Yeah she’s different Nervous and twitching Sparks and emissions Keeping her finger On the ignition I hope you come around Coming and going Every moment Falls through the sky Erupting and glowing I hope you come around I hope you come around Just like something Comes out of nothing She ain’t the done thing Yeah she’s different Oh she’s like a comet Oh she’s like a comet Oh she’s like a comet Yeah she’s different Yeah she’s different Yeah she’s different Yeah she’s different

TO YOUR DOOR

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 Everyday I wake up to the Strangest feeling Everything is happening again Looking in the mirror at my Own reflection Scared that I don’t recognise a thing Now you’re gone Now you’re gone I try to catch the bus but it’s the Wind I’m hailing Everyone and no one looks at me And if I could convince someone to Take me somewhere I would be arriving on your street Now you’re gone I’m just a Shadow of my past And I can’t wait to get To your door To your door I run To your door To your door I run To your door To your door I run To your door To your door Everyday I wake up it’s the Same old story Everything is happening again And if I could convince someone to Take me some place It’s my face that you’d see coming clean Now you’re gone I’m just a Shadow of my past And I can’t wait to get To your door To your door I run To your door To your door I run To your door To your door I run To your door To your door

CONTROL

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 We were doin’ fine We had everything, the stars and the sunshine Drinking liquor from the neck of the day time From the city to the sea There was nothing that could hold us back Falling like the rain for each other With the hope of a slow train Memories grew older than smoke stains There was something going on that Nothing in the world could change Where do I go now? ‘Cos I don’t wanna be in control Where do I go now? ‘Cos I don’t wanna be in control I don’t wanna be in control again I don’t wanna be in control I don’t wanna be in control again Playing in the sand Thinking everything we held in our good hands Was immune to all the stuff that you can’t plan Now I’m trying to understand The good to come with moving on Where do I go now? ‘Cos I don’t wanna be in control I don’t wanna be in control again I don’t wanna be in control I don’t wanna be in control again I’ll kick my plans to the side of the road I wanna live more but I can’t let go I wanna live more But I can’t let go Where do I go now? ‘Cos I don’t wanna be in control I don’t wanna be in control again I don’t wanna be in control I don’t wanna be in control again Never in control

UNDER YOUR BED

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 Waking in a cold sweat Dreaming of the war Wondering if tomorrow I’ll be dreaming anymore ‘Cos reds are under your bed And reds are under your bed And reds are under your bed And reds are....yeah I wanna be different in the morning ‘Cos it doesn’t really look like fun When everything’s different in the morning And it doesn’t really look like fun I wanna be different in the morning ‘Cos it doesn’t really look like fun Better be different in the morning Walking in a day dream Battling the war Thinking of tomorrow But I don’t know what it’s for ‘Cos reds are under your bed And reds are under your bed And reds are under your bed And reds are....yeah I wanna be different in the morning ‘Cos it doesn’t really look like fun When everything’s different in the morning And it doesn’t really look like fun I wanna be different in the morning ‘Cos it doesn’t really look like fun Better be different in the morning It doesn’t really look like fun!

BATTLESONG

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 Here we stand in the shadows With the ghosts been and gone And the night that surrounds us Gives away to breaking dawn If we live, we live standing Side by side and heart to heart The lines have been drawn The cry has rung out Long before the wretched Writing on the wall Nobody was listening Nobody could hear our call Living in the fringes Seemed our best defence Balking at the battle Once before but never again So we march over mountains Knowing not what lies ahead With the hope of a future We brace ourselves for the end But if we make it to old age We’ll strip our sleeves and show our scars Let these wounds speak of our prize Long before the wretched Writing on the wall Nobody was listening Nobody could hear our call Living in the fringes Seemed our best defence Balking at the battle Once before but not again Maybe they are millions With more to call upon We can be an army We can take the whole world on Not for god or glory Or riches in the sun Just to live forever Always pushing upwards and on Drawn in to battle test’s the fate of the few Drawn in to battle we’re an army of two With too much to lose Long before the wretched Writing on the wall Nobody was listening Nobody could hear our call Living in the fringes Seemed our best defence Balking at the battle Once before but not again Maybe they are millions With more to call upon We could be an army Take the fuckin’ whole lot on Not for god or glory Or riches in the sun Just to live forever Always pushing upwards and on To victory! Victory! Victory!

FREAKIN' OUT

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 Panic in the night Trying to make things right Still you wonder why All your crystal gazing Could learn you things You wouldn’t wanna know So don’t start Freakin’ out About what you deserve No don’t start Freakin’ out About what you deserve On the street below The city static grows And life just comes and goes All your crystal gazing Could learn you things You wouldn’t wanna know So don’t start Freakin’ out About what you deserve No don’t start Freakin’ out About what you deserve About what you deserve ‘Cos there’s a fine line to reason And there’s a long ways to go When you can make sense of nothing And when you live and die alone But if you don’t look back And if you stop trying to figure it all out You’ll never need to know So don’t start Freakin’ out About what you deserve No don’t start Freakin’ out About what you deserve

THE LASH

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 First comes the call we’re going out on the lash And you can come back to mine if you need a place to crash Got some friends in town saying they can make it better Well I guess that’s what you get tryin’ to make a splash Kiss kissing consequence Consequence good night Kiss kiss your consequence good night She’s just a friend Who burns to the end She just goes on and on and on And just like a friend I rush to defend We’ll just go on and Chase it Find it Taste it Don’t waste it Kiss kissing consequence Consequence good night Kiss kiss your consequence good night She’s just a friend Who burns to the end She just goes on and on and on And just like a friend I rush to defend We’ll just go on and on and on Kiss it goodnight! Kiss it goodnight! Kiss it goodnight! Wake up pause reflect Last night I called you collect It’s good to know when you go we can always connect She’s just a friend Who burns to the end She just goes on and on and on And just like a friend I rush to defend We’ll just go on and on and on She’s just a friend Who burns to the end She just goes on and on and on And just like a friend I rush to defend We’ll just go on and on and on

HIGH [HORSE]

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 Hey! What are you looking for? Something fast or something good? I don’t think that you’re all there Like a line misunderstood When I grow up I’ll be indestructible Taking revenge out on all my enemies When I get young I’ll be bored and over it Wasting away all the best years of my life Now I’m waiting for the lights to change All these colours look the same Hey! Where are you going now? I was still talking to you! Don’t tell me, you’re out of time Any old excuse will do When I grow up I’ll be indestructible Taking revenge out on all my enemies When I get young I’ll be bored and over it Wasting away all the best years of my life Now I’m waiting for the lights to change All these colours look the same Hey! What are you looking for? Something fast or something good? I don’t think that you’re all there Like a line misunderstood Now I’m bored Now I’m bored Now I’m bored and over it

ARE WE OKAY?

ALBUM: KOSCISUZKO, 2011 We’ve become I’m looking for signs In everything To tell me somehow I’ve done the right thing Call me crazy (I often do) It feels so weird being without you Time slips away Gone the days we’ll never see again I don’t care ‘cos we were there and I’ll Always feel the same And that’s where it can remain As long as we’re okay Are we okay? Switch off the lights Turn off the taps Send ‘em all home Let’s leave it at that I’ve got a confession (It’s not an excuse) I don’t know what the future holds Time slips away Gone the days we’ll never see again I don’t care ‘cos we were there and I’ll Always feel the same And that’s where it can remain As long as we’re okay Are we okay? As long as we’re okay As long as we’re okay As long as we’re okay Are we okay?
