"Moment Of Surrender" (live from Perth)

I know a girl
A girl called Party, Party Girl
I know she wants more than a party
Party Girl
But she won't tell me her name
Oh no, not me

Feel the thunder. Beautiful, beautiful evening. Beautiful moment. Turn the lights off, Willie. Keep them off. Turn this place into the Milky Way. Like a Christmas charm, a Christmas charm.

I tied myself with wire
To let the horses run free
I was playing with the fire
When the fire played with me

The stone was barely precious
We were barely conscious
Two souls too cool to be
In the realm of certainty
Even on our wedding day

At the moment of surrender
I folded to my knees
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

I've been in every black hole
At the altar of a dark star
My body's now a begging bowl
That's begging to get back
Begging to get back to my heart
To the rhythm of my soul
To the rhythm of my consciousness
To the rhythm that yearns
To be released from control

I was punching in the numbers
At the ATM machine
I could see in the reflection
A face staring back at me
At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

I was speeding on the subway
Through the stations of the cross
Every eye looking every other way
Counting down 'til the pain would stop
At the moment of surrender
Of vision of over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

Life is short
It’s the longest thing you’ll ever do
The worst, the curse
Was that your dreams came true
God is a mirror in which each man sees himself
Hell is a place where you don’t need any help
When I first met you, your face was like snow
Forever, wherever you wanted to go
Your face, your grace, your can of mace
17 when you're put down on the ground
Don't put your faith in the clown
Don't leave me now
Don't leave your faith in a clown
Put your faith in a clown
Don't put your faith in the crowd
