The Edge Of The Earth: Unreleased Songs From The Film Fading West Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Fading West

Fading West with you
Fading West with you

The sun goes down for the summer
Mirror sky for the water
I am fading westward too
Fading west with you

Life won't sing like I want it
The traffic post modern sonic
The traffic hums a dirty tune
Fading West with you

Heading back to the west coast
Where I'm from
I'm heading back to the left coast
Where I belong.
California's calling me back home
Fading West with you

Keep my mind over matter
Cause I've seen my hopes shatter
They told me lies I thought were true
Fading West with you

The sun goes down
We were already going

Heading back to the west coast
Where I'm from
I'm heading back to the left coast
Where I belong.
California's calling me back home
Fading West with you

When I'm out on my own
Feel like I'm caving in
When you leave me alone
I start to wonder
Where have I been
Where have I been

Heading back to the west coast
Where I'm from
I'm heading back to the left coast
Where I belong.
California's calling me back home
Fading West with you

Fading West with you
Fading West with you

Against The Voices

Start the day against the voices
The ones that tell me that I'm wrong
I hear them now
Screaming their delusions
Close my eyes and they're gone

If they ain't singing
And they're just talking
Let them keep talking to themselves

'Cause everybody knows
The hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself
When the voices try to turn you into someone else

Start the road against the voices
I pick a path out in the woods
I've made mistakes
I've got the scars to prove them
I'd change the past if I could

If they ain't singing
And they're just talking
Let them keep talking to themselves

'Cause everybody knows
The hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself
When the voices try to turn you into someone else

La la la la la la la la la la la

I close my eyes and then they're gone

If they ain't singing
And they're just talking
Let them keep talking to themselves

'Cause everybody knows
The hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself
Yeah, the fight to be yourself

If they ain't singing - yeah
If they ain't singing - ye-ah
Let them keep talking to themselves

'Cause everybody knows
The hardest war to fight
Is a fight to be yourself
When the voices try to turn you into someone else

Skin And Bones

The wasteland is mine, Mine alone
The desert comes alive, When no one's home
Apocalyptic skies, Burning gold
I walk these empty miles, I can't find a soul

In my mind...
In my mind...
In my mind, I'm miles away
I'm miles away...

I'm not afraid to die, I'm afraid of being free...
I'm not afraid to doubt, I'm afraid of being real...
Don't believe the lies, Of what you see
I'll affect your mind, With all these imageries(?)

In my mind...
In my mind...
In my mind, I'm miles away
I'm miles away...

Flying overhead, These imageries
Flying overhead, These imageries
Flying overhead, These imageries
Flying overhead, These imageries

In my mind...
In my mind...
In my mind...
In my mind...

What It Costs

Sunlight fading fast, make it last.
Like a flame that flickers, then its passed.
Moonlight fades to dawn, carry on.
You never know what's real until it's gone.
Love deals the currency of life.
Don't ever forget what it costs.

Hold on to me, carry me through.
Our story is the pain that we outgrew.
Yeah, you can't call it love until you've lost.
If you love someone this is what it costs.

This city cries softly at night.
Like a million tear drops from a thousand eyes.
I'm drenched beneath the rainy Melbourne sky.
Wonder why it is I feel so dry inside.
Love uses the pain to drill a hole, and irrigate our dried up, thirsty souls.

Hold on to me, carry me through.
Our story is the pain that we outgrew.
Yeah, you can't call it love until you've lost.
If you love someone this is what it costs.

Sunlight fading fast, make it last.
Sunlight fading fast, make it last.

Slow Down My Heartbeat

The morning comes
My mind rolls back
My body's weightless
My world goes black
Slow down my heartbeat
Slow down my heartbeat
Slow down my heartbeat
Slow down my heartbeat
A loud scream in
My hands are bound
The world's still breathing
But there's no sound
Slow down my heartbeat
Slow down my heartbeat
Slow down my heartbeat
Slow down my heartbeat
Euphoria's gone
It's time to move on
I have to believe we can change
My world's gone all wrong
Stop swimming along
We can't be the same old thing
Euphoria's gone
It's time to move on
I have to believe we can change
My world's gone all wrong
Stop swimming along
We can't be the same old thing
Euphoria's gone
It's time to move on
I have to believe we can change
My world's gone all wrong
Stop swimming along
We can't be the same old thing
Euphoria's gone
Euphoria's gone
Euphoria's gone
Euphoria's gone
Euphoria's gone

Liberty

The feeling comes to me in waves
The darkest seas I've ever known
Mine is an odyssey of grace
Mine is a story headed home

I tie myself up to the mast
Give up the semblence of control
The sirens sing but I let them pass
cause only you could free my soul

Only you could free my soul yeah
Only you could free my soul

Set these broken bones to cast
Stitch my wounds with holy sutures
Every saint has got a past yeah
But every sinners got a future

And only you could free my soul yeah
Only you could free my soul yeah

Show me the freedom from these chains
Show me a battlefield that's saved
Cos our world has still rolled away?
But you are my liberty

Free my soul
Free my soul
And let liberty flow
Like a flood let it go
And I'll let the past go

I'll come on
back home
And I'll make it all known?

Oh my Lord
Oh my hope
Only you could free my soul

Free my soul
Come on and free my soul
(Only you could free my soul)
Come on and free my soul
(Only you could free my soul)

I tie myself up to the mast
I tie myself up to the mast and let it go
(Only you could free my soul)
Yeah
Yeah
Only you could free my soul

The Edge Of The Earth

When the morning finds us
We open up our eyes
With the stars still faded in the sky
All along the journey
You leave the past behind
I had a dream that we could fly

Of a distant oceans
The fallen mountains
The great wide open
Of the desert sky
And where I'll be is
Where you find me
Meet me here at the Edge of the Earth
Meet me here at the Edge of the Earth
So come on
Come on

So I set off running
To reach the other side
To find a place to call my home
And in the distance
The rivers open wide
And I was lost but not alone

Of a distant oceans
The fallen mountains
The great wide open
Of the desert sky
And where I'll be is
Where you find me

Meet me here at the Edge of the Earth
Meet me here at the Edge of the Earth
So come on
So come on
