Total plays on over the last 6 months
    D' you breathe the name of your saviour
    In your hour of need
    N' taste the blame if the flavor
    Should remind you of greed
    Of implication, insinuation and ill will
    Carnival of Rust  -  1,983,897 plays
    In our headlights, staring, bleak, beer cans, deer's eyes
    On the asphalt underneath, our crushed plans and my lies
    Lonely street signs, powerlines, they keep on flashing, flashing by (flashing)
    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye
    Late Goodbye  -  939,380 plays
    Hear your heartbeat
    Beat a frantic pace
    And it's not even seven AM
    You're feeling the rush
    Of anguish settling
    Sleep  -  987,073 plays
    Times when I just can't
    Bring myself to say it loud
    'Fraid that what I'll say comes out somehow awry
    That is when it seems
    We move in circles day to day
    Lift  -  755,804 plays
    I've walked the distance
    I paid my dues and I tried to have a go at what I thought
    I knew was real, held no appeal
    I've been to places, I've seen the tidings
    I bought a book of rules for every coin that I could steal
