Track Name: For Fuck's Sake
Mouthed a promise and watched it's demise
A lie
A misleading conversation
Your fucked banter
A Social disorder
Handicapped reasons
Gratification from your treason
Put this to bed
Let it rest it’s weary head
Let it fall asleep for the last time
She won’t wake up again
She won’t wake up again
Her world’s Her stage
Can the waves crash in?
Will they drag you under and out?
An abandoned shipwreck
Mayday; we are over and out
Over and out Just a bystander
Caught in the crossfire
Breathe deeper now
While Your brow starts to perspire
Watch her heart sink
I watched her heart sink
Put Sunday on repeat
Peaceful as the tap of my feet
Push play with her voice in mind
Half lit fires and Silhouette skies
Mouthed a promise and watch it’s demise
A lie. A misleading conversation
Track Name: Centrefolds
Centrefolds with all the reactions
Certain pose and dull satisfaction
Greener pastures and a hidden connection
And we, we already knew them
Saturdays and all that they bring us
Seventh day and no sign of a lifeline
Drag me out, of here and pull me into the limelight
Dear God, give me your hand, give me lifeline
Show me the lights
Show me city lights
It is where I need to be
To forget all I’ve remembered
Take care, that’s was she told me
That’s what she told me when I left her this morning
I’m analytical - pencil to paper
Take care, take care
Sit down and pick up the telephone
Or Smile and listen to the dial tone
Oh it’s always been something better
I’ve always been better on my own
Well I’m not coming home, tonight
I’m not coming home
Track Name: Angry Birds
Thieves, all of your are thieves
All of this means nothing to no one
Nothing to no one
For the last time, for the last time, for
Thieves, all of your are thieves
All of this means nothing to no one
Nothing to no one
For the last time, for the last time, for
I will take aim
For the last time I will take aim
For the last time I will take aim
Bring the king to his knees
For he abandoned us all
Make him beg make him plead
Consequences for all he's done
They want nothing more
They want nothing more but this
I've seen nothing like it before
I've seen nothing like it before
Track Name: Grin and Bear It
Take these words
Break them into consumable grief
Think through your actions
With your heart on your sleeve
Slow down and breathe
We all have our demons
And they have their limits
Peace is not
Something that comes to us easily
It's hard work and something you'll die trying hard to achieve
But we all need to dream
We all need some wisedom
I cannot
I cannot go back to what we were
Once we were lovers
But not we are strangers
Am I holding my tongue?
Are we too far gone?
Are we too far gone?
Track Name: Little Faith Have Heart
You say this curtain will fall
You say this curtain will fall
Well I beg to differ
Acting upon all insecurities
You think this love will be torn
You think this love will be torn
Well I beg to differ
Underestimate the strength of the foundation
Thought that this right would be wronged
Thought this right would be wronged
Well I beg to differ
Little faith have heart
Treading a thin black line
Treading water
Sink or swim
Little faith have heart
Track Name: Panorama
Another silent movie
Another sleepless night
Continuation of my dreaming
Bleeding knuckles from the fight
I’m still seeing
The faces of these killers
The ones that boast control
Who is driving this?
Who’s the one responsible?
Am I driving this?
Am I the one responsible
I’m falling asleep at the wheel
Sleep at wheel
Falling asleep
Days are only days
But wasted are none
I’m drunk and I tired
It’s a sorry tale that’s sung
Do I take this pill and swallow?
Do I take the fruit and eat?
Can I take one more step forward?
Can I trust what’s on the street?
Have I the will to continue?
Can I still pick up my feet?
Is there still hope for the fallen?
Is there faith for the weak?
Can you come guide us onwards?
My future so bleak
Calm the waters of the ocean
Or watch this panorama bleed
Track Name: Departure
Departure
Never a simple process
Observing through a window
Of this city
As it decays
As it wastes away
Cold memories
Keep them close to your heart
Cold memories
Keep them close to your heart
I am burdened with a heavy heart
Love lost and lounge departure
I feel sick
Sicker than I’ve felt before
Not once I believed
That anything could part this
Hope Faith and Love
Hope Faith and Love
Stuck in the cycle
Run the Race of the Rodents
Freedom fell from this moment
Do I fall to my knees?
Fall to my knees?
Do I fall?
Track Name: Sunset Memorial
I gave you away
A gift given to the oceans
She promised me your return
Just another lesson
I forgot to learn
With hands held over our hearts
With words that we had spoken
From the start
We knew this day would come
Life was broken
Surrounded by this wasteland
I would part the seas
For you
Clear the skies from winter
Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
With hands held over our hearts
With words that we had spoken
From the start
We knew this day would come
Life was broken
Surrounded by this wasteland
I would part the seas
For you...
