Quotes Tomas Kalnoky
"A Better Place, A Better Time," from Everything Goes Numb (2003) http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/s/streetlight_manifesto/a_better_place_a_better_time.html
„Little miss dismissed can't miss like a detuned radio
I cannot believe you when you tell me what you know
And nothing will be broken if your house is made of stone
But you know as I do it will never be a home
We want it, they got it
They claim we'll die without it
But something tells me they are wrong
So what will you do when they call your name and you're not ready to go?
Everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know
That you're in too deep and you can't quite keep your secrets, one and all
We might just make it after all, on our own
We might just make it after all
But we had one foot on the gas and one foot in the grave
Everyone was laughing when we said we had it made“
"One Foot on the Gas, One Foot in the Grave" from "Somewhere in the Between" (2007) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/sitb/04/
„Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of the plan
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the alpha, omega, beginning and the end
And we all just idolize the dead
So you were born (So you were born!), and that was a good day
Someday you'll die (Someday you'll die!), and that is a shame
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
And nothing and no one will ever take that away
You had a love and that love had you
And nothing mattered, you were fine
And some will complain, they're just bitter, what a shame
They know that loving and losing is better than nothing at all
Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of our path
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the anthem, the slogan, the summary of events
And we all just idealize the past“
"Somewhere In The Between" from "Somewhere in the Between" (2007) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/sitb/06/
„Why do you cry when you know how the story ends?
How can you laugh when you know that it hurts your friends?
We've all been there once but you never left
This is me coming back to get you out
To say goodbye to make amends
I'm not leaving this place
Unless I'm leaving with you
'Cos you're the only person with a half decent heart here
And I know you will put it to use
Me and Mr. Dylan on the ride home
We had a heart to heart about life
But neither him or me could decide for ourselves if we wanted to outlive that night
Like two children on the playground of the unconfessed souls
Abandoned by our mothers and our lovers and our foes
If only we were brave enough to live the lives we stole
What a wonderful world this could be!
So how many more examples until we break?
So how many sacrifices must we make?
Because we've all been there once before
And it looks like we've returned once more
So is this the beginning or the end?“
"The Big Sleep" from "Everything Goes Numb" (2003) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/egn/12/
„Would you be impressed if I said that the dead would help us counting
Every single moment that we waste our time?
All the time we're spending vaccinating this disease
I just get dizzy when I think of all the ways we try to hide our maladies
We wine (We wine!), we dine (We dine!), and everything is fine
Because it's not my fault
Now you're upset because you finally got the notion
That everything you had is spinning down the drain
Oh! Do you mean it when you beg and pray and plead?
Your "Giveittomegiveittomegiveittomegiveittome all those things we need"
And what, pray tell, will you whimper when your number will be called
You'll say "It's not my fault"
I had a dream last night where everyone was trying
Subconsciously I knew it was a lie
And when I woke I knew that it was time to pray
To make amends before the end, before my judgement day
I looked around, I stood alone, I knew what I had to say
I said "It's all my fault"“
"Would You Be Impressed?" from "Somewhere in the Between" (2007) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/sitb/03/
„Last two soldiers on the battlefield
survivors of the war
they aim at one another while their mothers beg the lord
"if you're listening, I'm missing him
so somehow bring him home"
how did it come to this?
so the soldiers lift their rifles and they're aiming at the head
they think of their first love before they take a final breath
and somewhere in the distance they hear something someone said
how did it come to this?“
"The Big Sleep," from "Everything Goes Numb" (2003)
„Oh! My dear! My tis of thee! What a tangled web we weave!
Everyone is the one until the one falls down
Then we're all just "please please please"
The painted rust will only fool the fools for just so long
Eventually, that's when they'll see everything was wrong
Oh! The shame! Humility! What a wicked gang are we!
Like a liar looking down on a thief looking down on a killer looking down on a creep
Oh! This sinking ship will only hold its course for just so long
Eventually, that's when they'll see everything is wrong“
"What A Wicked Gang Are We" from "Somewhere in the Between" (2007) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/sitb/10/

„And now I know it's hard when you don't know what to think
And every single smile is a foil and you're waking up
You might try but you won't get by until you're crucified for all the things you try to do
Well I don't care if you sink or swim
And I don't care how you hold it in
As long as you don't bother me with all the things I don't bother you with
And 9 times out of 10 you might be right
But what about that time you know you're wrong?
You sing that same song
And everybody smiles but they'll never get along“
"We Are The Few" from "Everything Goes Numb" (2003) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/egn/06/
„I take that back I won't stop singing when I'm dead
I'll sing from the great beyond, I will echo in your head
And if you think taking your life will set your free
You've got something to learn, it's called humility
You've got something to learn, it's called humility“
"That'll Be The Day" from "Everything Goes Numb" (2003) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/egn/02/
„So Marigold, my love, you've had too much to drink
And I need not remind you, our discount tickets for this sinking ship
Take-backs and sweet regrets, that's all that we have left
No one is looking out for anyone but number one
One to one, two to dance, we all get our sweet romance
Though sour grapes will turn to wine it's all just vinegar with time“
"The Receiving End of it All" from "Somewhere in the Between" (2007) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/sitb/09/
„So tell me: how long do you think you can go before you lose it all?
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control
At some point, but I let it go and lost my soul“
"A Moment of Silence," from "Everything Goes Numb" (2003)
„We'll not be victims there'll be no victims of to speak
And only then will we be free
And up will rise the meek
And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam, we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant
The beaten and the bruised, forsaken, the abused
Oh what a glorious day we'll have rising up and claiming all our dues
The day will come as sure as the ever-setting sun
All of those that self-impose will find themselves so indisposed
Now, with the line drawn in the wet sand
You need to tell us where you stand
Sitting waiting watching rotting everything they warned us of is true
Now tell me what we're all supposed to do
They're coming after all of us with everything they've got
With the fury of a soldier who will answer to his God
So how will we fight? All we have is logic and love on our side“
"We Will Fall Together" from "Somewhere In the Between" (2007) http://risc.perix.co.uk/lyrics/sm/sitb/01/
„This is the start, the beginning
The prologue to the yarn that you're spinning
A million synonyms will never get close to describe the feeling“
If Only for Memories from "The Hands That Thieve" (2013)
