Faithless - Why Go

Don't go 
I didn't know you'd be here 
And I wasn't meant to come 
I'd be sitting watching TV 
If there was anything decent on 
If I'd missed the taxi 
Or found nothing good to wear 
But for some uncertain reason 
Some strange uncertain reason 
This is how it all 
It all begun 

Why go? 
Why go? 
When you could stay a while 
Why go? 
Why go? 
When you could stay a while 

If I made some coffee 
Would you sit and talk some more? 
I know words are usually pointless 
When you've used them all before 
The way your smile fills the room 
Stay a while 
Kick off your shoes 
Don't go 
Please stay 
It always happens this way 

Why go? 
Why go? 
When you could stay a while 
Why go? 
Why go? 
When you could stay a while 

The way your smile fills the room 
Stay a while 
What's there to lose? 
The way you laugh 
When I say 
Don't go 
Please stay 

Why go? 
Why go? 
When you could stay a while 
Why go? 
Why go? 
When you could stay a while 
When you could stay with me tonight 
Tonight 

Faithless - We Come One

All the subtle flavours of my life have become 
Bitter seeds and poisioned leaves without you 
You represent what's true 
I drain the colour from the sky 
And turn blue without you 

These arms like a purpose 
flapping like a humming bird 
I'm nervous cuts 
I'm the left eye, you're the right 
Would it not be madness to fight? 
We come one 

In you the song which rights my wrongs 
In you the fullness of living 
The power to begin again 
From right now 
In you, in you, in you... 

We come one 
We come one 
We come one 

I'm unafraid 
Never never scared 
You always watched, pressed air 
I'm the left eye, you're the right 
Would it not be madness to fight? 

We come one 
We come 
One 

Faithless - Take a Long Way Home

I lift you off the earth mundane and glum 
Out of solar system where you passed the sun 
'Til all the fear in your hart is gone and so on 

Walking trough the world with no pressure 
Inner peace beyond measure 
I was leaving where it came in 
When a man said stop 
I want to have what you have 
and get what you got 

I got it sleeping rough on the streets in the rain 
I got it learning to share my peoples pain 
I got it making flowers grow in hearts of stone 
I got it 'cos I always take thee long way home 

I've been walking trough the world with no pressure 
As fresher full of vigour life becomes my mirror 
The further I go the more I know 
Oh yeah, wherever the wind blow I'll be there 

Turned up in places that I never intended to go 
And so ended my youth I once deepended on proof 
Now I'm in the flow, there I things I know beyond knowing 
I've seen a seed growing, I was going back home 
When a man said stop, I want to have what you have 
And get what you got 

I got it sleeping rough on the streets in the rain 
I got it leanring to share my peoples pain 
I got it making flowers grow in hearts of stone 
I got it 'cos I always take thee long way home

Faithless - She's My Baby

I see you workin' through the bead curtain 
In you kitchen, switchin', leavin' me twitchin' 
I'm itchin' to be kissin' you, but disciplne is the rule 
So I sip my orange juice and act cool 
She irresistible 
We fool around twice a week, makes me weak 
Nice, when she put her tongeu in my cheek 
Not petite, baby got a large physique 
She take charge, take me were I dare not repeat 
I got T-T-T-T-like a high hat 
Planting kisses on your back 
You like that 
Mrs X. reputation intact, nobody on my block 
Know we lock down like that in the next flat 
But one from whre I live with my mum and uncle John 
He ain't my uncle an' it's been far too long 
But me 'n' she been goin' strong almost a year 
Wait til the coast is clear, I don't boast for fear 
Of being caught. Maybe w ought to stop, maybe not 
For now baby gets all I got. Boom! 
How come we always trash the room? Grab ya clothes 
Cos ya know someone'll be home soon 
An' I assume there'll be a need to explain gently 
Why this mother of three is playin' games with me 
She's my baby 

I'm a slave to your outrage 
Rocket box stiff shocks an' a roll cage 
Colour coded alloys, much noise, spoilers an' poise 
Exhaust notes an antidote for old age 
Yes! Yes! 
Who got the keys to my R.S. we goin' on a road test 
Hit the M4 and head west, forever impressed 
With the sound of my two litre, we cover ground 
Engine singin' like Anita Baker 
An' iff I take a corner too quick y' get sick 
When I do my hand-bake trick, watch me ride 
Mi broadside slide like a battleship 

Side-slip puch out mi hip 
Stick it in gear an' give the gas a blip. It 
Never fail to bring a grin to the lip, Baby's equipped 
Me an' she gone clear I got quik rack reduction 
On the under steer, I been 
Fairly and squarely discribed as hairy 
People say my baby is scary 
Look you takes your money and you takes your schoice 
I just love to hear my baby's voice 
She's my baby 

I roll up for the session, ev'rything in position 
My friends demonstratin' erudition 
I listen for a minute before takin' sides 
Sleepy eyes on the limit sit down an' spin it 
Like we do every Friday down my way 
Why play the fool with demon alcohol 
As a rule my baby gets passed around 
I don't frown, I love to see my friends gettin' down 
When it's just me an' she you know it's never precarious 
But sharin' with ya buddies is hilarious 
Variously we argua an' disagree an' get heated 
Hafta tell my people to be seated 
An' restart the anti-stress process 
'Til there's a big mess of twigs an' seeds to meetcha needs 
An' with that first inhaled hello... 
Guaranteed mellow 
She's my baby! 

Faithless - Salva Mea

How can I change the world if I can't even change myself? 
I cannot change the way I am? 
I don't know, I don't know. 
I take a look at the world behind these eyes, 
Every nook, every cranny reorganize, 
Realize my face don't fit the way I feel. 
What's real? 
I need a mirror to check my face is in place, 
Incase of upheaval, fundamental movement below, 
What's really going on I want to know, 
But yo, we don't show on the outside, so slide. 
Just below my skin I'm screaming... 
I need a mirror for my spirit, 
Yeah, can you feel it? 
When I get deep, want to hear myself sleep, 
Not drowning, tumbling around and around in the voices 
Like a crowd in my head so loud, 
I wonder what it's like to be dead, 
I hope it's quiet, noise in my head like a riot, 
Any remedy you have for me I'll try it. 
Just below my skin I'm screaming... 
I'm going deep, so deep that I can't sleep, 
The pills ain't cheep but the bills are steep, 
So I try with a booze and a spiff, 
Try to snooze, 
But who's dreaming, this is win or loose, 
Put down the drink, try not to think, 
Let it go, fundamental movement below, 
And yo, reality is dreaming, 
Just below my skin I'm screaming... 

Faithless - Reverence

Watch me ride... 

Take the words and the bass, 
Taste, and then swallow me, 
You're chasing the devil, 
Cos you're level if you follow me 
For quality, and I make no apology 
For linking my thinking with computer technology. 
Cos this is like a modern day hymn, 
For the new church, 
I search for the truth, 
I've got a hole in my tooth 
I'm Uncouth, yes sir, I'm from the street university 
Where we learn to earn even in times of adversity. 
And always find the ease way out of a hard time 
petty crime sometimes, 
But now I'm inclined to find 
A fresh direction, 
Check out the funky section. 
Cos this is the part where I start to rip up words, 
A comfort coming straight from my heart, 
I'm not a mystic, 
My views are realistic, simplistic, 
One special brew I get pissed quick, 
And get sick so I don't do it no more, 
I won't find peace of mind, 
Rolling around on the floor. 
The point I want to make is 
you can never escape from your fate, 
The mistake is to take without giving, 
From within, 
You know how I'm living, 

I'm cool. I'm looking after myself, 
And I could never place wealth before my spirit, 
I feel it's unhealthy, 
The devil creep around you so stealthy, stealthy 
Till ya get bold, rush the gold, 
And before ya time is over, 
Ya soul is sold, where's it gettin ya? 
Competition starts swearing ya, 
Golddiggers setting you up, 
Soon be forgetting your existence? 
Do ya need a for instance, 
I hafta admire your persistence 
In sticking to a game plan, 
That brings ya pain man, 
And at the end of the day nothing is gained, 
So listen to the voice within, 
I'll see ya later, 
Pay heed to the Grand Oral Disseminator. 

I keep lying and trying, 
Denying the call from inside 
Ya can't hide responsibility 
So decide from today just who it's going to be, 
Thou shalt have no other od but me, 
So set ya free see, 
But you'll have to listen, 
And who's that false idol 
I see you kissing? 
Money, success and untold wealth, good health 
And all ya have to do is love yourself. 
It's a fact you'll attract all the things that ya lack, 
So just chill 
And get off the race track 
And take a pace back, face facts, 
It's your decision, 
You don't need eyes to see, 
You need vision, 
Continue to view the lord as being separated 
And you're living a lie that's been perpetrated, 
For many centuries, I wanna mention, 
These facts in my rap, 
I don't sing, 
But I wanna share the peace that it brings, 
My name is G.O.D. 
The Grand Oral Disseminator... 

Faithless - One Step Too Far

You can sleep forever, but still you will be tired 
You can stay as cold as stone, but still you won't find peace 
With you I feel I'm the meek leading the blind 
With you I feel I'm just spending wasting time 

I've been waiting 
I'm still waiting 
I've been waiting 
I've been waiting 
I've been waiting 
I'm still waiting 
I'm with you (with you) 
It's always one step too far 
One step too far 

You can walk too far but still you won't be found 
You can look down on the world but still you won't find love 
You won't find love 

Only with mellow 
Are you thin enough to slide through, 
Don't let nothin' ride u, 
If the sun or the moon would give way to doubt, 
They would immediately go out. 
Only one swallow doesn't make a summer 
But u gotta start somewhere (maxi's bit) 

I've been waiting 
I'm still waiting 
I've been waiting 
I've been waiting 
I've been waiting 
'Im still waiting 
I'm with you (with you) 
It's always one step too far 
One step too far 

I've been waiting 
I'm still waiting 
I've been waiting 
I've been waiting 
I've been waiting 
I'm still waiting 
I'm with you (with you) 
It's always one step too far 
One step too far 

Faithless - Muhammed Ali

If all you keep hearing it so long you will see me as 
a super star and you'll have time to waste with your 
minions and tink 
I see your face in front of me, 
Still grainy from that old black and white TV 
My whole family silenced, 
Watching you shape destiny with your 2 hands, 
Faster than the eye can see. 

Mesmerizing 

You know what skinny little me started to struggle, 
10 years old suddenly bold 
Cause I resolved to live like my hero in the ring, 
Be smart never give an inch, 
No retreat when I'm wrapped up 
Respect from teachers, Red Necks 
And creatures who attack in a pack 
Like incensed never seen the light not before or 
Since a young prince 
And I remain convinced of his invincibility 
Athletic agility, virility, 
Seen your free spirit for every through eternity stings 
Like a bee Mr Muhammed Ali 

I want you to know 
You are the o-riginal (x2) 

Your achievements defy belief from the belly 
of the beast Rising like yeast, 
My release from low self esteem 
Came when I saw you rapping on my TV screen. 
Float like a butterfly, 
That describes my walk to school after fight night 
I felt so cool cause I was at place too, 
Love myself born slippy 
Outta love for you, 
And I knew that someday people would love me too. 
None of that heckling about my black skin got through, 
I would walk bare foot through hell for you, 
It was how I felt back then I would still do for you, 
So accept these humble words of praise, 
And my gratitude for those glorious days 
And your victorious ways, 
Instilled in the young minds, 
Skill sublime yours to mine! 

I want to know who you are! 
I want to know who you are! 
I want to know who you are! 

Faithless - Killer's Lullaby

I'm sittin' at a coffe table unable to see straight 
Watchin' parallel lines unwind and undulate 
Behind the rain-soaked window pane the scene's bleak 
Another train leaving home, concedning defeat with a low moan 
Hangin' in a sy made of stone, everybody's leavin' home 
Called my man Jerome to come and meet me in the twilight zone 

Leave ya mobile phone at home and come alone 
I bouht him coffe an' a snack, settled back, started speakin 
He was tweakin' at the peak of his hat while I'm seekin' 
to discover what it takes to stay sober 
Not to cover my mistakes, try to maybe make sense 
f the eveidence, It's over 
She'd gone for good why should I lie 
Singin' a killer's lullaby 
Indentified by the dying ring of a goodbye 
The last thing ya hear before ya life disappear 
"Is it better when you see her?" 
Nah, it just gets worse like my stomach'll burst 
Feels like I been cursed with seven centuries 
Of bitter memories, Inadequacies of previous he's and she's 

I'm movin' round this old house for the last time 
Scene of my past crimes, been her for lifetimes 
Hearin' the chimes of that old clock that useta mock 
You got eternity for takin' stock, this place is like a padlock 
You look shocked, trust me. Nuthin' ever moves but the dust 
There's just us and I'm here to torment and tease 
An' that's how it was for centureis, me and my memories 
til you bought the keys, took a coupla Saturdays 
An; moved in runnin' from tragedies an' boozin' 
Seven hundred years since I came her you appear 
Same hair, same quizzical stare 
I couldn't get near and the sheer frustration 
Was more than I could bear, I was really cursed 
Thought I'd been through the worst part, 

That was just first part, just the start 
Everynight I'd be sittin' with dread pickin' my heart 
In case the man she been chasin' gets to first base 
An' I just can't escape. I'm in bad shape 
You makin' love to someone else is more than i can take 
So I make all the movement I can, to no avail 
Scream an' yell sinkin' deeper in my own personal hell 

I'm gettin' heated I'm sorry, have another coffee 
I needed to release my sparrow chest from just a piece 
Of this pressure, unless an' excape route is found 
I'm goin' down, underground into lifetaimes of pain 
It's absurd, the heaviest chain is contained in the sound of one word 
So I'm referred back to hell. Just as well i hate needles 
an' get twinges at the thought of syringes 

I move quick I wanna try my trick one last time 
you know it's possible to vaguely define my outline, 
when dust move and the sun shine 
So I try to change vibrate myself to near human pitch, 
which reminds me how i used to come unstitched, 
and switch round the house in a blind rage, 
it took years and an ocean of tears 
to find the key to this cage, 
advance another stage into a new age. 
It's difficult to gauge, 
but I know i'll see you again, on that you can depend, 
I just dont know how or when. 
Sleep on my last love, i'm gone.

Faithless - Insomnia

Deep in the bossom of the gentle night, 
Is when I search for the light, 
Pick up my pen and start to right, 
I struggle and fight, 
Dark forces in the clear moonlight, 
Without fear.. 

Insomnia, 

I can't get no sleep, 

I used to worry, 
Thought I was going mad in a hurry, 
Getting stress, making excess mess in darkness, 
No electricity, something's all over me, 
Please see insomnia, please release me, 
And let me dream of making mad love to my girl on the heath, 
Tearing of tights with my teeth, 
But there's no release, no peace, 
I toss and turn without cease, 
Like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast, 
At least a couple of weeks since I last slept, 
Kept taking sleepers, 
But now I keep myself ped, 
Deeper still, the night, 
I write by candlelight, 
I find insight, Fundamental movement, 
So when it's black, this insomniac, 
Take an original tack, 
Keep the beast in my nature under ceaseless attack, 
I gets no sleep, 

I can't get no sleep. 

I can't get no sleep. 
I can't get no sleep. 
I can't get no sleep. 

I can't get no sleep. 

Faithless - God is a DJ

This is my church 
This is where I heal my hurt 

It's in natural grace 
Of watching 
Young lives shape 
In minor keys 
Solutions and remedies 
Enemies becoming friends 
When bitterness ends 

This is my church 
This is my church 

This is my church 
This is where I heal my hurt 
It's in the world I've become 
Contained in the hum 
Vetween voice and drum 
It's in change 
The poetic justice 
Of Cause and effect 
Respect, love, compassion 

This is my church 
This is where I heal my hurt 

For tonight God is a DJ 
For tonight God is a DJ 

This is my church 

Faithless - Fade into you

I want to hold the hand inside you 
i want to take a breath that's true 
i look to you and i see nothing 
i look to you to see the truth 
you live your life 
you go in shadows 
you'll come apart and you'll go black 
some kind of night nito your darkness 
colors your eyes with what's not there 

fade into you 
strange you never knew 
fade into you 
i think it's strange you never knew 

a stranger's light comes on slowly 
a stranger's heart without a home 
you put your hands into your head 
and then smiles cover your heart 

fade into you 
strange you never knew 
fade into you 
i think it's strange you never knew 

fade into you 
strange you never knew 
fade into you 
i think it's strange you never knew 
i think it's strange you never knew 

Faithless - Evergreen

Running with my rain face on 
Today I woke up feeling sad 
I know that you said, 
That oned ay I would be glad 
Hold the Choirs of Winter, 

The Birds are calling to me and 
All the leaves I came to love are falling 
Ribbons on evergreen, owls that pull them apart 
I can hear you singing my funny valentine 
Oh you know that breaks my heart 
Hold the choirs of winter, 
The Birds are calling to me and 
All the leaves I came to love 

Oh you know that breaks my heart 
Oh you know that breaks my heart 

Running with my rain face on 
No Idea of what to say 
No idea of who to do 
In this fear that never goes 
Waiting for all my dreams 
Oh you know it breaks my heart 
Hold the Choirs of Winter, 
The Birds are calling to me and 
All the leaves I came to love 

Oh you know it breaks my heart 
Oh you know it breaks my heart 
Oh you know That breaks my heart 

Faithless - Dont Leave

Packing your bags like people in the movies 
do, 
All severe, and not saying a word, 
And I'm sitting down here just watching 
you, 
And I'm thinking: 
Where is all the love gone? 
Where's the love gone to? 

Don't leave, 
You got me hurting, 
Don't leave 
You know it's never been easy to love someone 
like me, 
Oh, don't leave. 

Hanging with friends like we used to do, 

I didn't know anything was wrong, 
And last night while I was thinking it 
through, 
Trying to find who am I and what d'you need me 
to do? 
Don't leave. 
There's a record you used to play, 
there's Judy singing 'best to be without 
you', 
And I know just what she's singing 'Help me I 
am fallen' 

Where did all the love go? 
Where's the love gone to? 
Don't leave. 
You got me hurting, 
Don't leave. 
You know it's never been easy to love someone 
like me, 
Oh, don't leave. 
Where did all the love go? 
Where's the love gone to? 
Don't leave. 

We'll fly around the world, give you what you're 
giving me, 
I should have dressed you up in pearl, 
Fin as silk to touch your skin, 
Don't know how to write a love song, 
But Don't leave. 
You got me hurting, 
Don't leave. 
You know it's never been easy to love someone 
like me. 
Don't leave. 
Don't leave. 
Don't leave. 
Don't leave. 

Faithless - Crazy English Summer

fields of fire that passed the train 
the sky is victorious but here comes the rain 
friday is taking me home again 
and i've nothing but you on my mind 

grass is greener without the pain 
i think that i'm changing 
but i'm just the same 
my sun is ascending again 
and i've nothing but you on my mind 

sometimes i feel like i'm glad to be free 
sometimes i still want your arms around me 
sometimes i'm glad to have left you behind 
the crazy english summer has brought you back on my mind 

life's a riot, a lover, a friend 
pity the day that it has to end 
friday come speed me home again 
i've nothing but you on my mind 

sometimes i feel like i'm fine on my own 
fifty thousand miles from home 
sometimes i'm weak and the past is my guide 
summer returns and puts you back on my mind 

Faithless - Bring My Family Back

I'm on lonely street age nealy three 
Recently, mama's crying all the time 
Is it because of me? or my younger sister? 
Even dad was weepin' when he kissed her 
Face all puffy like a blister, crying like he missed her 
Since we moved away from the house 
Where we used to play - The say "I'll understand one day" 
But i doubt it - mama never said nothing about it 
How the get to be so crowded 
I found with a strange - Everywhere I look I see pain 
And I can't escape the feeling maybe I'm too blame 
So I strange to listen, praying for a decission - wishing - 
The where kissing this fields like extrudission or exile 
Mama finds it hard to smile so I made pretend cups of 
Coffee in her favourite style - She says: 
"Child I'm working so there's nothing to lack" 
But she know I want my dad, I want my Family Back 

I'm on lonely street age fourty-three 
Couldn't gage went to quit so my wife quit me 
Took offense took the kids 
I wish that was the end but before she took her leave 
She took care of my best friends 
Working all the hours god send was not a tactic 
You see 'cause after ten years I'm left with jackshit 
Wanted to make the cash quick so I had to work real late 
Bad sex my women's vex even if I stay awake 
And if I'm honest I had a little cake at the office I was leaving 
We do out cheatings over coffee 
Making tea for the bosses making free with me 
Do you agree I got sleazy to easily 
But I'm fourty-three this doesn't usually happen to me 
Now I'm lonely 
I won't dream what my son's doing today 
Suddenly I'm blinking like the screen or my Computer display 
And I'm drinking concerned about what's down the track if I 
Don't get my Family Back 
I want my familie back 

Faithless - Baseball Cap

Oh, smack, there goes my baseball cap I'm on the floor, 
I think I took a bruse to my jaw, 
Jumped me from behind at least three, maybe four, 
I never see my hat no more. 

Oh, smash. There goes my baseball cap, 
It's gone, gone, gone, gone, 
I can't get it back. 
Oh, smash, there goes my baseball cap, 
It's gone, gone, gone, gone, 
I can't get it back. 

14 years old and hard to the core, 
I'm walking home making plans for war, 
My hands was cut, my uncle says 'what's up?' 
Let me guess, your clothes are in a mess, you're in distress, 
Sit down, take five and let me look at your knees, 
Your still alive son, please take it easy 
Sometimes you have to let the world know you're not bluffing, 
But enough is enough, don't loose your life over nothing, 
Scuffling in the street is no way to die, 
And I don't want to have to meet your mama's eye, 
So try and listen hard before you fall into the trap 
Of making war voer a baseball cap. 

Oh, smash, there goes my baseball cap, 
It's gone, gone, gone, gone, 
I can't get it back. 
Oh, smash, there goes my baseball cap, 
It's gone, gone, gone, gone, 
I can't get it back. 

Faithless - Angeline

You've been out on the tiles, 
Winning the smiles of men of low persuasion, 
But I know you drink yourself crawling in the street until dawn, 
Girl you look like a bad dream, 
You've been places I've never been. 

Come home, come home Angeline. 
Come home, come home Angeline. 
You've been places I've never been. 

You took the small change from the job in the hall, 
Be back in an hour but you're not back at all. 
The children are crying, the flowers are dying, 
There's no food on the table, 
I don't think I'm able to cope, 
You've been places I've never been. 

Come home, come home Angeline. 
ome home, come home Angeline. 
You've been places I've never been. 

Cheap perfume and alcohol, dancing on tables, 
With kissing for strangers all laughing and howling, 
And jokes and tall tales that ain't funny at all, 
Bluffers and smugglers, boozers and gamblers, 
Jump old queens and tarts at the babbled bar. 
Oh, they've been pushing you too far. 

Come home, come home Angeline. 
Come home, come home Angeline. 
You've been places I've never been. 
Come home, come home Angeline. 
Come home, come home Angeline. 
You've been places I've never been.
