Track Name: Love Off
Your sonar failed you that night
derailed up in your room
the friend that watched you sleep
and brushed the midnight spiders from your cheek
she held it all from you
i took a backseat view as i held my viper tongue
i've wanted this for so long now it's all hit home.

Little things that we all know
it seems to me you have not heard
you're a dinosaur in green
i’m a loaded magazine
mono words in hollow verse
are exactly all your worth.

When all your cinematic dreams became deleted scenes
i tried to turn things on their head you cried and laid in bed
and other stupid stuff
but if you'd shake it off then we'd both get off.

I've wanted this for so long is it really so damn wrong?

Don't go home, stay
need me someday
don't go, please stay
leave me someday
but not now.
Track Name: Cut The Lights
These are paranoid days
i asked you if you thought you needed space
and if you're feeling so damn brave
why can't you just admit you like the chase?

When I cut the lights
when I flick that switch
i’m not half as nice as you'd like to think
when I cut the lights
when I flick that switch
i’m not compromised
as it falls to bits.

These are paranoid days
why can't you make the bad winds blow away?
and you're talking slow, deranged
just try to keep a thought in for today.
When I cut the lights
when I flick that switch
I’m not quite your kind with the razored wit
when I cut the lights
when I flick that switch
i’m not compromised.
Track Name: Die By Your Side
I’ll die right here by your side
leave this hazy light behind
if we find our waterfall we’ll be fine
i’ll die right here by your side.

‘Cause if we’re worlds apart like people say then
words are not enough and I’m filling up.

I’ll die right here by your side
scenes round here just leave me blind
can’t stay here anymore wasting time
let’s find a place we both can hide.

I crossed a line today
i went and gave it all away
you seem to take your time
you just seem to want to break mine.

I’ll die right here by your side
leave this crazy life behind
just lay here a little while
close your eyes
feeling safe for all of time.
Track Name: Funny Bones
Don't try to make sense of the seasons
just leave them
a rock-steady hand writes a note but you know you won't read it.

You wanna go out but you won't go
there's nothing outside so you'll stay home
you won't go out ‘cause you might meet somebody that leaves.

Dragging your funny bones out from under the sheets
you come closer, by the window
you see down by the roadside there's nothing our kind can relate to
it's all see-thru.

You know the cut and the thrust of this lifestyle's denial
you get drunk every night in a club until light
borrowed feeling
can you see it?

8am crowded on subways
when we'd rather be taking express trains
but don't bow out ‘cause you might meet
somebody that beats
somebody that breathes
somebody not me.
Track Name: Manhole 69
Morley listens wise to how we left the seas behind
we severed all our ties and we cut transmission lines
“and by this new design the blocking force is mine”
the clock ticked on at three-fifteen above the door of sixty-nine.

Avery just reads
his senses lay deceived
and we wonder if and when things were really better then
“if all days roll to one then tomorrow never comes and I am free again”, said Lang, “all obsessive thoughts are gone”.

These times lay defined by a worn thread
hanging from the coat of a dear friend
we seed alone in a warm shallow hole of infinity
for every signal that’s repeated will surely one day lose its meaning
moving, locked in an endless check Gorrell concedes.
Track Name: Under My Stone
You only have to sign your name one last time to break away
but I’m not fearing all you say i remember then
now I’m just not feeling quite myself
you said you'd make it better
long ago now far away
i wish i could have stayed
but i crawled out from under my stone.

You only have to sign your name one last time to smile again
in my own peculiar way i believed you when you said
“if you're not feeling quite yourself i'll always make it better”
hanging on your every word
you always said you'd make it better
time to put the past to bed
i wish i could with no regrets that
i crawled out from under my stone
you always knew that i'd be the one to offer you a home
down there with the dust and the dirt
hoping for better times
chasing my white lies.

Because i crawled out from under my stone
like you always said that i'd be
the one to offer you a home
down there with the dust and the dirt
hoping for better times
chasing my white lies
these were arguably better times.
Track Name: Slow June
I had a mind to tell you
but this library’s so damn cold
and i’ve been stuck on this book since 1989
and i've watched you fall off the wall
and then climb back up like a fool
so keep taking those pills June
keep staring up at the sky.

What would my friends look like with no hair and how can i make you people care?
these things are always on my mind.

Get up one sunday morning and she said
“i don’t think this life’s for me, i know that you adore me, but is it ever quite enough?”

You were sick down your dress
this could be our finest hour
and i tried apologising
it’s all i've ever done
and i've watched you crawl on the floor
life’s not so easy when your slow June
i know i keep you down on the ground my dear
but you keep staring up at the sky.

What would my friends look like with no hair and how can i make you people care?
these things are always on my mind
your sore
i have no doubt of it
but one word and i’m running out of here
*holds breath for serotonin time*

Get up one sunday morning and she said
“i don’t think this way’s forward and i know that you adore me
i know you’re not quite bored yet, but i am and i've really had enough.”

So heads up
i'll tell you since my life just seems this cold
that i tried to figure out if it’s all i've ever known
i can’t say that I’m certain
i can’t say i'll change
but these things are always on my mind.
Track Name: Marina
I had a burn with a 69
and i left him smoking at the traffic lights
not slowing down
i'll never start slowing down
the bridge, the parks
where my life fell apart
and lead me back to the start.

I fell behind from the second line
i don't need no pit-stop i’m just killing time
not slowing down
i'll never start slowing down
‘cause teenage years were all about the gash
and me and my marina.

My marina is faster than your Cadillac
now watch me race right out your traps this time.

You hitched a ride at the quarter mile
did i not mention this is how I spend my time
just driving round since the day that you left town
you disagreed with my direction
and grabbed the wheel of my marina.

Now my marina is wrapped around somebody's house
i lost it all
you killed my friend marina
my marina was towed away for 50 quid
so now i take the train instead it's too bad.

Your recollection was a lie
that my friends laughed when i said that
i'd take a boat not a plane
and things were never the same.
Track Name: Daybreaks
Daybreaks
whatever, wherever
if someone would take me away
they'd keep me smiling
heartaches
hung over, fall over
yeah i've been sinking again
drowning way low.

Hands show
too slow
and i’m always left behind.

Daybreaks
you never believe
me when i see it happening again
a feeling rising
mistakes
that's fine, you deny
but here's how it always ends
two storms colliding.

I'm slow
and i know
that i'll be last in line.

So when you're waiting on that somebody to catch your eye
you leave me stranded here standing round to wonder why
you say i’m like a film and all the captions pass you by
a single sulky cloud in your sultry summer sunshine sky.

I know
just too slow
always left behind
so please go i wish you well
because I’m done wasting time.
Track Name: Easy in Summertime
Like iron he came and you broke so gently
blue fire and flame
grow and be deadly
it could be easy in summertime
it could be easy if the levée binds
it could be easy in summertime
but it's so easy for me to say i know.

Stop
forget everything you feel
burn me where I stand with a gun in my hand
if i laugh it all off in a day
stop
self-pity, self-harmer
forget everything and don't blame your father
because maybe, just maybe
no one's listening anyway.

Stop
forget everything you feel
hold our nerve 'til the end but we gladly pretend
that we're off in some far off place
stop
car parks and lager
forget everything
yeah Selwyn's martyr
but maybe, just maybe
getting smarter anyway.

This is a stranger where i stand
i’m not possessed by love my friend
my principles are small
it’s so much harder to recall
something Amy said to me as we waited for the bus
leaning closer calmly sweetly
"boy, you seem to soak it up
i hope you make it to summertime".
Track Name: Harriet's Waltz
I’m as ready as i've ever been
with these stones in my pockets
as heavy as your heart hangs
as powerless to stop it
i'll slip away thin
no space as tomorrow
creeps up like a lighthouse
a path i can’t follow.

I’m as steady as you’ve ever seen
in these shoes i can’t walk in
fashion’s for laughter
my standing is solid
more austere than dreams of fatal diseases
no hoping, no waiting
fired up like a rocket.

Save the advice ‘cause i want you to know
that i’ll come to life just the moment i leave it
the harder that you fall the higher your bounce is
let the weight fall in peace let it lie.

Lead in flight
may arms hit rock and stories roll this night
“future” is a nasty word
tonight, i’m not afraid to die
let the weight fall in peace let it lie.

Sue i’m so glad that i never found you
and loaded you up with blind virtue and value
the harder that you fall the higher your bounce is
let it all fall in peace let it lie.
