Track Name: Talk It Through
All the work is done, without the feeling it had no meaning,
But I’m still reeling.

When our lips collide at break neck speed,
well I don’t need my mind anymore.

Sooner or later we know,
That you just did what you were supposed to.
But I hold the hope to talk it through.

Now the rain creeps in through the window
Where you said let’s go I can’t continue.
Isn’t it convenient that you’re the one who hunts to kill,
But can’t really stomach breathing.

Sooner or later we know,
That you just did what you were supposed to.
But I hold the hope to talk it through.
Track Name: Warning Me
We set sail on the morning air,
Dont despair.
Theres a light on, it’s a lighthouse, it’s calling me.
Theres a light on, it’s a lighthouse, it’s warning me.

We set sail on the morning air,
Dont despair.
Theres a light on, it’s a lighthouse, it’s calling me.
Theres a light on, it’s a lighthouse, it’s warning me.

[Now in this question, can I improve me.
There is the obvious difficulty, that if I am in need of improving,
Then the one who’s going to do the improving is the one who needs improved.
The reason you want to be better is the reason you aren’t…shall I put it like that.]

No other way to communicate, I just get tongue tied and I lie awake.
No other way to communicate, I just get tongue tied and I lie awake.
Track Name: Way Past The Dawn
All these people in suits came for me,
Dressed to impress but they seem unnecessary.

So I gave it up, I can’t get unstuck,
These visions of you are keeping me up way past the dawn.

Well it’s getting late and I don’t know my way home,
She said take my hand but I said I’d rather make it on my own.

So I gave it up, I can’t get unstuck,
These visions of you are keeping me up way past the dawn.

As daylight broke I wound up at a motel,
I said my hellos but they gasped you look awfully unwell!

So I gave it up, I can’t get unstuck,
These visions of you are keeping me up way past the dawn.

One wrong turn I find I’m in the land of the witch,
They claim everything happens for a reason but I got no time for sales pitch.

So I gave it up, I can’t get unstuck,
These visions of you are keeping me up way past the dawn.
Track Name: Never Parted, Never Broken Hearted
But to see her was to love her,
Love but her and love until you see forever.

And had we never lived so kind,
And had we never lived so blind.

Never met, never parted, never broken hearted.

The hypocrits keep on playing their little pranks,
Murder the men but don’t forget to give your thanks.
Desist for shame proceed no further,
God won’t accept your thanks for murder.

Never met, never parted, never broken hearted.

But like the snow falls into the river,
A moment white then it melts forever.
The pleasures are like poppy spread,
You seize the flower its bloom is shed.

Never met, never parted, never broken hearted.
Track Name: Square 1
All these roads back to you,
I didn’t really want them to.
Just be reminders of the pain,
Time and time again,

I find myself at square 1.

All these roads back to you,
I didn’t really want them to.
Just be reminders of the pain,
Time and time again,

I find myself at square 1.

These fools rush in, and destroy it all.
These fools don’t know me at all.

These fools rush in, and destroy it all.
These fools don’t know me at all.
Track Name: Disappeared
Food and water didn’t come to easy,
Ten days alone in the desert sun.
I wished the mirage it was real,
But instead it’s illusions of what I feel.

Please forgive them they know what they do.

I’ve chased love and it brought me here,
I’ve chased love and I disappeared.

Food and water didn’t come to easy,
Ten days alone in the desert sun.

But instead it’s illusions of what I feel.

Please forgive them they know what they do.

I’ve chased love and I disappeared.
Track Name: Atlantic City
Well I got a job put my money away,
But I got debts no honest man can pay.
So I withdrew what I had from the Central Trust
And bought us 2 tickets on that bus.

Fix your hair up pretty and meet me tonight,
In Atlantic City.

Well everything dies baby that’s a fact,
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.
So honey last night I met a guy and I’m gonna do a little favour for him.

Fix your hair up pretty and meet me tonight,
In Atlantic City.

Well everything dies baby that’s a fact,
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.
Well everything dies baby that’s a fact,
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.
Track Name: Give + Give
I told you my plan last week,
About how I’m trying to find a soul to keep.

But you ate the words right up,
And your love is a half empty cup.
I give and give for the life I keep on wishing to live.

Quit putting those foolish judgments in your head,
Cultivate how to empathise instead.

But you ate the words right up,
And your love is a half empty cup.
I give and give for the life I keep on wishing to live.

You build it so tall, with a feeling and all,
But they don’t know what I know.
You build it so tall, with a feeling and all,
But they don’t know what I know.

I told you my plan last week,
About how I’m trying to find a soul to keep.

But you ate the words right up,
And your love is a half empty cup.
I give and give for the life I keep on wishing to live.

And the seeds that I sow, will eventually have a chance to grow.
And the seeds that I sow, will eventually rise from below.
And the seeds that I sow, will eventually have a chance to grow.
And the seeds that I sow, will eventually rise from below.

You build it so tall, with a feeling and all,
But they don’t know what I know.

Track Name: By Now I Should've Realised
Watch how the rabid run,
Peaceful in trying to find the one.
Thats down on their luck tonight…
Well I’m down on my luck alright.

And these feelings we try to overcome,
Consuming inside of everyone.
But I try, I stay alive,
To hold on tight for this ride that we call life.

Can’t seem to shake the shadow,
Keep trailing behind so slow.
Its polluting everything I come to know,
What useless tests we undergo.

And these feelings we try to overcome,
Consuming inside of everyone.
But I try, I stay alive,
To hold on tight for this ride that we call life.

And these feelings we try to overcome,
Consuming inside of everyone.
But I try, I stay alive,
To hold on tight for this ride that we call life.

By now I should’ve realised,
That every time you speak it’s the sound of another lie.
And you fooled me once before,
But I’m not that weak anymore.

By now I should’ve realised,
That every time you speak it’s the sound of another lie.
And you fooled me once before,
But I’m not that weak anymore.
Track Name: Shiver
I am the last sun,
A thousand lives to this one to be someone.

3 lines on the mirror and these thoughts in your head that will make you shiver.

And all the love and all the hate,
And all the words we shout to dissipate,
That you’re someone and you belong.

3 lines on the mirror and these thoughts in your head that will make you shiver.

When I’m in love I feel like I could reach the moon,
Does this have to end does change have to happen so soon?
When I’m in love I feel like I could reach the moon,
Does this have to end does change have to happen so soon?
