Track Name: Eric Radoux - Down the Door
It's been a long time now
And the fire's gone
Heaven knows the light's been dim
Is holding on ever worth the effort
When laying low seems easy?

And late at night
It's another war
Every blow we're more alone
There's a light at the door
As we fight on the floor
The police want more than apologies
But each of us ignores them

Give it to me straight
I know that look in your eyes
It says to me that you won't admit it
You know we both should be committed
But no hospital can keep us separate

It's been a long time now
And the fire's gone
When every tone of voice seems wrong
I know we'll hold on
Like two frightened wolves
Your jaws around my neck

It's been a long time now
And the fire's gone
I can't survive alone
There's a light at the door
As we fight on the floor
The police want more than apologies
But each of us ignores them
Track Name: The Elegant Bachelors - Number One Cause
He says he doesn’t really mind the mess
After all “who have I got to impress?”
“And who have I got to convince
To come over the fence?”

Besides he kind of likes it this way
“It’s easy I guess when you just let everything lay,
And it’s comforting you know to see everything you’ve got
When it’s all centralized in one easy spot.”

He’s been counting down the days
And he’s been counting up the ways
To hold his head up
Against what some might call adversity, and some might self-pity
But he just calls bad luck

She says she doesn’t really mind if he talks
“I just need someone to hold my hand when I go on my walks”
“Besides I really haven’t got that much to say”

And she’s been counting down the days
And she’s been counting up the ways
Track Name: Eric Radoux - Placebo
At first I thought that I was drowning
Then I woke up with tears in my eyes
I dreamed my mother died
It's all too much
To bury in a night

I went into her room to claim her things
Her image in the mirror, haunting
She asked me
Did I believe in Heaven?
I agreed wholeheartedly
But I did not fall to my knees
Deep within my soul
I know it's just a placebo

I never once believed in sickness
That's why I worked to wring tears from your eyes
I deflected
I covered up
I pulled the weed
But left the root untouched

Love has always been a mystery
I couldn't understand the need
But this is real
And I gave you up
Now I'm sick as hell
Well I can diagnose myself
I know I need your drug

I'm asking you home
I need more than placebos
Track Name: The Elegant Bachelors - Glass Houses
Your eyes are blue and buried deep
Behind the glass and padlocked doors
The sky above is white as milk
and the ocean breaks against the shore

I can’ walk or try to crawl
And you can’t climb that vicious wall
And the light shines in all pure and clear
free to come and to go away from here

Your face is bright and close enough
To almost touch
The light shines in all pure and clear
Free to come and to go away from here

And I can’t talk or try to breathe
And you can’t hear a single sound
The light shines in so pure and clear
Free to come and to go away from here
Track Name: Eric Radoux - Take My Hand
I'm sick
Unhealthy
So happy in my ire
So go on
Take me
Be my little taste of heaven

Take my hand
Don't you hear me?
Lead me on
But stay true
'Cause I'm a new one
Lay me softly
Down in my bed

No one has ever known me
For as long as you have known me
And now we're alone

Throw all your fears aside
Now the moment's right
Cast off all my defenses
And be satisfied
But if I leave in the morning
Remember me as a grain of sand
Trickling by the hour
It's for my peace of mind

No one has ever loved me
In the way that you have loved me
And now we're alone
Track Name: The Elegant Bachelors - Sharks
Your arms are warm and holding on
You look at me and then you’re gone
And I will wait here

Your eyes are powder blue and cool
Can I be the exception to your rule
And I will wait here

Your hair is delicate and brown
Your hair it gently falls around
Don’t you know you nearly knock me to the ground?
And I will wait here

Your lips are hiding things unsaid
Your smile is wide the sky is red
Track Name: Eric Radoux - Shooter
You never know you're losing control
'Til you're losing home
Always a moment
Never shared
Always a liar
Always a liar
The roots have been uprooted
Going to find my way
The wind's going to take me
Away

It's hard to be a nervous gun
Trigger happy, boom boom
Am I a killer?
I don't know
Three hours
Two hours
The snow is falling faster
Than I can hope to run
My footsteps will lead me
Away
Track Name: The Elegant Bachelors - Light, As Viewed Through a Sieve
Go to sleep
Go to sleep
Lay down your head
Lay down your head

Close your eyes
The moon is high
The stars give light

Just go to sleep
Lay down your head

Just close your eyes and go to sleep
And rest

Go to sleep
Turn out the light
Say good night

Go to sleep
Lay down your head

Go to sleep
The world is weariness
