    Let's put our heads together and work on the remaining lyrics from High Rise.

    We're looking for a community effort to nail down the lyrics for "Tomorrow", "Cry Cry" & "Same On The Inside".

    Edit:

    Cry Cry


    Forgive the promises I never kept
    The wasted life that you have left
    So sell your soul and put it on display
    Echoing the debts that can't be paid

    Pull you in and throw you out of time
    The shadows playing tricks on your broken mind

    ??????? the undertow

    Cry cry, I can't say no
    ??????
    Yeah yeah
    Cry cry, it's all a show
    Just a game you're playing
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Yesterday is lost again
    Collecting ????? suffering in vain
    So hold on tight and watch the embers glow
    The ashes fly away out of your control

    ??????? the undertow

    Pull you in and throw you out of time
    The shadows playing tricks on your broken mind

    Tears will not ?????

    Cry cry, I can't say no
    ??????
    Yeah yeah
    Cry cry, it's all a show
    Just a game you're playing
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Cry cry, I can't say no
    ??????
    Yeah yeah
    Cry cry, it's all a show
    Just a game you're playing
    Yeah yeah
    Cry cry, I can't say no
    ??????
    Yeah yeah
    Cry cry, it's all a show
    Just a game you're playing
    Yeah yeah

    Same On The Inside

    Sending out a message to the world
    But I just can't seem to find the words
    No one wants to die alone
    Broken and insane
    Question every last decision
    Another empty page

    Do you know the answers
    Tell me how to find my happy ending
    When do we stop pretending that we're all the same on the inside?

    Wanting what I know won't satisfy
    Just an endless need to live a lie
    Never meant to run away
    Jumping out a train
    My casue was built on good intentions
    Burning on every page

    Do you know the answers
    Tell me how to find my happy ending
    When do we stop pretending that we're all the same on the inside?

    All the same on the inside
    All the same on the inside

    Do you know the answers
    Tell me how to find my happy ending
    When do we stop pretending that we're all the same on the inside?

    All the same on the inside
    All the same on the inside
    We're all the same on the inside
    We're all the same on the inside
    All the same on the inside

    Tomorrow

    These endless days are ?????
    Tearing at this heart that breaks for
    I'm coming home tomorrow

    Though you're not lying next to me
    I hear your song that calls to me
    I'm coming home tomorrow
    Back in your arms

    Tomorrow's just a dream I can't detain
    It's like a fire I can't contain
    And though it seems so far away
    It's just a day, a lonely day away

    The summer's gone and now I can see
    The seasons end and set me free
    I'm coming home tomorrow
    Back in your arms

    Tomorrow's just a dream I can't detain
    It's like a fire I can't contain
    And though it seems so far away
    It's just a day,
    A lonely day away

    Tomorrow I carry on
    Tomorrow I carry on
    I'm so tired and so alone

    It's like a dream I can't detain
    It's like a fire I can't contain
    And though it seems so far away
    It's just a day,
    A lonely day away

    Either I'm deaf or Chester is a really bad lyricist. :lol: Probably the earlier.

    ..
    Jumping out the train
    My case was built on good intentions
    Burning every page

    Wow some of Cry Cry lines are hard to crack.

    On the 1st verse the "... undertow" part should be above "Pull your head..." and after that I hear "Tears will not cure the pain", before the 1st and 2nd chorus.

    Cry cry, I can't say no
    Nothing ???? (cures?) the craving

    Yesterday is lost again
    Collect the hours suffering in vain
    (^ Can't hear the 'ing' in collect)

    My bit of help atm :lol:

    For some reason I hear "like angels built on good intentions" even though that doesn't 100% make sense.

    Tomorrow
    These endless days away from here,
    Tear at my heart that breaks for you,

    This makes a lot more sense, cause I kept hearing "nothing cures the craving" but it didn't make much sense to me that Chester would use the same word twice so soon.

    Shaping good. And damn that undertow line, if you natives to the language can't figure it out, foreigners like me are hopeless :lol:.

    It's cause (if I can name only one fault of this brilliant EP) it's that the "dreamy vocals" in Cry, Cry are mixed weirdly and are buried in the mix. It makes it tough to understand Chester.

    Ah, well that's true. It happened to me in a song remix I really love but in that case the vocals were too morphed so some words got lost. Worst part was those words were scrapped vocals so they aren't in the original.

    I hope the boys release some lyrics as the release date nears.

    As do I. I thought those were the lyrics, but after hearing it again, it almost sounds like he is saying "my cage was built on good intentions", but that makes no sense.

    Also, the first time the chorus is sung on "Same On The Inside",
    Chester is saying "Tell me how to find my happy endings". Plural for the word endings, not ending, but it is singular for the rest of the song.

    My changes for "Same On The Inside":

    - At the end of the song, there's only four times the sentence "All the same on the inside" (instead of 5)
    - Also at the end of the song, I don't hear "We're all the same on the inside", only "All the same on the inside"

    Result:
    All the same on the inside
    All the same on the inside
    All the same on the inside
    All the same on the inside

    I did hear breathe too... If those are the right words, it's a weird line. It almost makes sense but then again, it doesn't. :lol:


    *Edit*

    I actually think the line bleeds into the next one...

    "Breathe in, let go. The undertow
    will pull you in and throw you out of time"

    Also I'm not sure if it is "let go" "and go" or "and know"

    In same on the inside I'm sure he said:
