Track Name: The Slow Bullet
two sides of that white line
staring back at each other silently aware
I see you waiting for some kind of reflection
look away look away like I would if I was you

inside of that white lie
staring back into emptiness, the silent heart
I see you waiting for some kind of deflection
like a slow bullet enters the heart
it leaves its mark on you

two sides of that same mind
staring back at each other silently aware
I see you waiting for some kind of protection
staring out into space as if it was staring at you

I see you waiting
Track Name: Curbside
sit yourself on the curb with your cigarette
bring yourself to my side and let’s talk for a while
so you’re stuck on the edge
and you’re tired and young
you’re too scared to live inside
’cause you’re dying on the outside

sit yourself on the curb if you’re tired and upset
bring yourself to my side
we’ll break free, break out
so you’re stuck on the edge
feeling tired and young
you’re too scared to live inside
’cause you’re dying on the outside

you may be young and criticised
it’s never easy
try to forget your pride
you better believe me
you may be young and criticised
it’s never easy
try to forget your pride each time you fall

each time you fall
Track Name: Slow Steady Heart
I am the slow burning lamp
I am the one that never sleeps
I am the way back down
I am the slow and steady heart
come back now
don’t hesitate any more

I am the slow turning hands
I am the words that can’t escape
I am the endless heights
I am the slow and steady heart
don’t wait
I’m always here

I am the slow turning hands
I am the slow burning lamp
I am the slow turning page
I am the slow and steady heart

if someone could find us the way
would you come and break out
if someone could take it away
would you stand or lay down
Track Name: Stay
stay you’ve carried me so far
love lift me from this dark shining sea
wait let me play my part
all these lives buried under time just ticking by

take me over now this world is overcome
I can’t get out, it’s all around me
take me out
take me now

cold burning words of song
have you ever seen the sun shine all day long

take me over now this world is overcome
I can feel you now, it’s all around me
take me out
take me now

stay
Track Name: Give A Little
yeah you’ve always been a little shy
locked up deep inside
they give a little give a little more ’til you’re hurting
give a little give a little more ’til you’re hurt

I know that you feel it all the time
I know ’cause I feel the same inside
I can’t help thinking that we might have got it wrong
to sell ourselves to a future we can’t hold

so you’ve always been a little tough
as if you weren’t scared enough
you give a little give a little more ’til they’re hurting
give a little give a little more ’til they’re hurt

you got me thinking and this feeling is magical
and I want it all to stop
Track Name: Dragging My Head Through Mud
dragging my head through mud
still I fight the beast
with the least that still can fight in me
crushing my bones on rocks
I’ve been sunk before
the scars remain as yesterday
drag my hands through glass
I feel nothingness... I feel nothing...

breathing my air through dust
still I fight the cure
with the beast that still resides in me
screaming my words to space
there the silence waits
to eat itself then dissipate
hiding my face in light ’til I blind you all
convince the world I don’t exist
I feel nothing...

I surrender
take my heart away
you’re so beautiful
give my heart away
you’re so beautiful
on my knees but I’m willing
take my armour
I surrender now
Track Name: Shining Like The Sun
hard top I can’t fight you I’m too tired
sweetheart I can’t fight you it’s all too hard
I curse the world today
fight hard either way
light shine through the pain
burn all paths again
let me know you’re there to rain

come raining down and we’ll be back at one
come rescue me shining like the sun

sweetheart I adore you as much as I can
I love everything about you but
I curse the ground today
fight hard lead the way
straight on through the haze
move on everyday
let me know you’re here to rain

don’t know what to say you won’t get my way
hide my feelings so you won’t get control
Track Name: Pieces
she’s the one
burning everything in sight
she needs a touch
where did we go wrong

we’ll work it out
fight until we think we’ve broke its spine
work until we think we’ve got it right
we’ll work it out
it’s bound to happen soon... there’s still time

working it out
she’s so sick of the signs
she can’t work all the pieces
out of her mind
every time that she speaks
she can’t work all the pieces out
so sick of the signs
she can’t grab all the pieces

she’s the one
fighting all the way down town
where’s the touch
it all just feels the same

we’ll work it out
fight like hell until we break its spine
work like hell to lift each other out
we’ll work it out
it’s bound to happen soon... if there’s time
Track Name: Keeping This Secret
I find on the one hand I’m tired out from keeping this secret
I found it on the inside
it’s about to be amended
lights out on the long night
the curse brings a family secret
I think on the one hand it’s about the lost control

we’ll go on and on away from here

I find on the one hand I’ve tried long to bury this secret
still on the other side I’m about to find control now
saw a light on the far lake
it cursed me it saw right through me
enough silence I’m about to lose control

we’ll go on and on away from here
we’ll go on and on until we can’t see
on until it starts to disappear

it’s right there in front of you
the first light on all of your secrets
keeping it inside you
you’re about to lose control now
I feel it like the world’s weight
so take me and crush me beneath your hand
too long silent I’m about to lose control
Track Name: Everything Is OK
every day at school is hell
where you dream of being like someone else
a target drawing help instead of blood

where you shout hey
I believe in what I have to
believe in what I need to
that everything is ok
and you say
everything you need to
every time you want to
’til everything is ok hey hey

every day at work is hell
where you try to be a better sell
living in the space you stare into

where you shout hey
I’m doing what I have to
I’m doing what I need to
’til everything is ok
and you say
everything you want to
everything you need to
’til everything is ok hey hey

we all dream of being ourselves
the hand that always seems to reach for someone else
we never speak aloud in case we’re the only ones

that cry hey
even if I want to
even if I need to
I can never say
hey everything I want to
everything I need to
to make these things ok hey hey
