SPLINTER (SONGS FROM A BROKEN MIND) LYRICS

Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)

On October 14th Mortal Records presented Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind), the inspired new album by pioneer, chart-topper and influential artist Gary Numan. Splinter features guitarist Robin Finck (Nine Inch Nails, Guns N Roses), is produced by long-standing collaborator Ade Fenton, and will be followed by a full national headline tour in November. The album finds Gary on fine dark electronic form; sounding both cutting-edge and classic Numan, it marks his best work since the late 70s, early 80s heyday. Gary s knack for sexy, idiosyncratic dancefloor killers is strongly evident on the pounding, growling throb of Love Hurt Bleed , whilst Who Are You carries equal clout as-body-music-Numan-style - infectious, but sounding unlike anything else you might hear blasting from a soundsystem. Although Numan released a straight-to-the-fanbase album Dead Son Rising in 2011, this is his first self-penned full album since Jagged in 2006. But while Numan s unique style continues to connect with fans from the worlds of metal, hip hop, electronica, industrial and indie, he remains as focussed as ever in pursuing his own singular vision. Splinter sounds unique, while also utilising new sounds and ideas.. .. 

I Am Dust


We are dust in a world of grim obsession
We are torn from our isolation
We were pulled from our path of least resistance
And the song we sung? What became of us?

We are here waiting for you
We are here waiting for you
We are yours, were waiting for you 
We are yours, were waiting for you 

We all prayed for the end, for their god to take us
We were falling down one by one 
We were weak and the fear was all around us
Their machines screamed from moon to sun

We are here waiting for you
We are here waiting for you
We are yours, were waiting for you
We are yours, were waiting for you 


We are yours, were waiting for you 
We are yours, were waiting for you 


Here In The Black


Here in the black thereís feeling of loss but itís hungry and restless (and its)
Looking desperate for something and it feels like a child but not screaming or helpless (and its)
Absent of mercy its alive and it feels but not a shred of compassion or love
It comes like a pouring of evil itís a stain on the ground itís a desolate shadow of fear

Its dark and Iím lost thereís a breath in the wind and the breath is malicious (and I)
Donít know whether to run, or should I drop to my knees and pretend Iím religious (Because)
Itís cold and Iím scared and the whispers are madness that forces a question to god
Is this real or imagined? Because if Iím asleep well then I donít need to scream for long

Here in the black it comes
Here in the black it comes
Here in the black it comes for me
Here in the black Iím lost

Itís here and Iím found like a thought in the mind but its beautifully vicious (and I)
Canít hide not sure if I want to it crawls in the mist like a vision of Judas (and its}
So close I can feel it and Iím chilled to the bone Iím a statue in ice (but its)
Unsure if itís enough so it waits for the ghost for the demon assassin of god

Here in the black it comes
Here in the black it comes
Here in the black it comes for me
Here in the black Iím lost

And all you see is dark and vague
And all you feel is life unmade
And all your hopes just bleed away
And all you are is lost and fades

Here in the black it comes
Here in the black it comes
Here in the black it comes for me
Here in the black Iím lost


Everything Comes Down To This


This isnít easy but itís what I believe
Something is broken and twisted and pushes away
No one is listening what have we done?
I feel the empty of darkness and lonely again

I donít know how this is going to end
I donít know how this is going to change
I donít know how this is going to feel
But everything comes down to this

Nothing is easy and no one is calm
Love is stranger that hides in the corner of sane
So much unspoken words left for dead
All I can hear is the screaming of someone to blame

I donít know how we let this go so far
I donít know how we let love turn to pain
I donít know how we let things fall apart
But everything comes down to this


I donít know how this is going to end
I donít know how this is going to change
I donít know how this is going to feel
But everything comes down to this

I donít know how we let this go so far
I donít know how we let love turn to pain
I donít know how we let things fall apart
But everything comes down to this


The Calling


You donít hear me
You donít see me
You donít even know Iím alive
So why do you call me?

I have young things
And they need me
What on earth can I do for you?
So why do you call me now?

You donít love me
You donít know me
Is this some kind of game for you?
Is that why youíve called me?


Splinter


I believe in the cruelty of life
I believe in all of the hopeless and lost (I see you)
I believe in the shamed, the faithless like me
I believe everything falls through the greed of man 

I see you

I see you

Do you believe in the beauty of love?
Or the heaven is vengeance disguised? (He sees you)
Do you believe we will pay for our sins?
I believe everythingís learned from the scars of men 

I see you

I see you

Life isnít everything

Life isnít everything

Life isnít everything

Life isnít everything

I donít believe in the calling of god
I donít believe a word of the word is true (I see you)
I donít believe in the goodness of people like me
I believe everything bleeds from the fear of man 

I see you

I see you


Lost


So are we over? 
Is this our end of days?
Are we so broken 
That you can walk away?

But when you think back to when we first met are you sad?
But when you think back to all weíve been through does it make you cry?
And when you think back to all the love shared do you feel anything?
And when you think back, well did you ever think weíd come to this?
And yet here we are, and Iím lost

If weíre over then youíre far away
If weíre over then Iím lost

If I had one chance 
If I could change your mind
If I had one wish 
Id wish for one more time

To see you walking your hand in my hand once again
To hear you laughing as if forever like my only friend 
To feel my fingers walk across your skin with a kiss to end
To listen to you say that you love me like you used to do
Like I need you to but weíre lost 

So itís over you are so far from home
So itís over and I stand alone
So itís over and I lost


Love Hurt Bleed 
(Single from 'Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind) ' album, 2013.)


Iíve seen all I want
Iíve seen all I need
Iíve seen everything
And I know everything bleeds

Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds

Iíve hurt things I love
Iíve hurt things to feed
Iíve hurt everything
And I know everything bleeds

Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds

Do, do you know my name?
Do, do you know what I've shared?
Do, do you think I'm lost?
Do, do you think I care?

Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds
Everything Bleeds


A Shadow Falls On Me


Every time I feel that I understand
A shadow falls on me, takes it away
Every time I try to walk away
A shadow falls on me and tells me to stay

When will it end?
When will it end?

Every time I dream you will come home
A shadow falls on me and I wake up alone
Every time I scream for someone to blame
A shadow falls on me and whispers my name

When will it end?
When will it end?

Every time I breathe, locked in this room
A shadow falls on me and says itís too soon
Every time I die and lay by your side
A shadow falls on me and keeps me alive

When will it end?
When will it end?


Where I Can Never Be



And nothing I say 
And nothing I can be
And nothing I do will ever bring you back to me

And all that we loved 
And all that we hoped for
And all that we dreamed is lost and slowly fades away

You are 
Still breathing so 
You are 
Where I can never be

And all that was
And all that I wanted
And all that I could have been is gone and turns to stone

And I am not here
And I am not real
But I am still calling out your name to guide you home

You are 
still breathing so 
You are 
Where I can never be

Where I can never be

Sometimes I hear you
Sometimes I see you
Sometimes I feel you
And so I die again 


Were The Unforgiven


Once there was life and we were strong, full of pride
Once we bred fear and we would take the flesh denied
Once we were gods and all things knelt before our world or died

Now weíre just a ruin
We were our undoing
Weíre the unforgiven 

Once there was light but we were vain, lost in mind
Once we bled rage and to our shame we killed the blind
Once we were praised but all things fall, even gods unkind

Now weíre dead religion
Not one soul delivered
Weíre the unforgiven 

Weíre the unforgiven 
Weíre the unforgiven 

Weíre the unforgiven 
Weíre the unforgiven 


Who Are You


II donít think Iíve ever seen your face
Who are you, who are you?
I donít think Iíve ever heard your voice
Who are you, who are you?
I donít think Iíve ever touched your heart
Who are you, who are you?
I donít think Iíve ever known your name
Who are you, who are you?

So let go
So let go
So let go
So let go

I donít think Iíve ever seen your smile
Who are you, who are you?
I donít think Iíve ever heard the truth
Who are you, who are you?
I donít think Iíve ever shared your dreams
Who are you, who are you?
I donít think Iíve ever known you at all
Who are you, who are you?

So let go
So let go
So let go
So let go

I donít think Iíve ever seen your face
I donít think Iíve ever heard your voice
I donít think Iíve ever touched your heart
I donít think Iíve ever known your name

So let go
So let go
So let go
So let go
So let go
So let go
So let go
So let go


My Last Day


Id like to watch you grow tall it can never be
Kiss you to sleep but I know it can never be
Wipe away all of your tears it can never be
Wake you to see a sun rise that I will never see

Oh oh it comes
Oh oh it comes
Oh oh it comes
My last day

Id like to mend every hurt it can never be
Be there to catch every fall it can never be
Be there to love everything you will never be
Sleep now I wish you sweet dreams I will never see

Oh oh it comes
Oh oh it comes
Oh oh it comes
My last day


The Dark In Me
Bonus Track for Japan CD


Can you feel me close to you?
Can you hear me pray for you?
Can you taste my need for you?
Can you see Iím here with you? 

Ho ho ho ho ho ho
Be watching
Ho ho ho ho ho ho
Be watching

Can you feel me touching you? 
Can you hear me call for you?
Can you taste my love for you? 
Can you see I hurt for you?

Ho ho ho ho ho ho
Be watching
Ho ho ho ho ho ho
Be watching

I can feel the pain in me
I can hear the lies in me
I can taste the fear in me
I can see the dark in me

Ho ho ho ho ho ho
Be watching
Ho ho ho ho ho ho
Be watching
