Track Name: a Secret Suicide Song
were ad-lib as recorded
Track Name: The Black Fog
Suddenly it’s black and you feel like turning back
But the path falls from your feet
One more step, happiness indiscreet
Funny how it feels when you turn, then you deal
A light glints in a gap
But your mind, knows that you can’t turn back

Shame covers you in it’s see through gown
Hiding from the thing that’s inside about to sting
And turn it upside down
Opportunity, slips away like silent fog
Hiding from the chance or a sympathetic glance could make the darkness stop

Andrew wake me up, slap my feelings make it stop
Do anything you choose
Shine a light, paint a sign of a muse
Miserable I am, everytime we take a stand
It’s fleeting, then it’s gone
How do you hide? From the right of the sun

Shame, how did we ever fall in love
Hiding from the chance as you ask again to dance
And still I can’t be shoved
To defeat... your arms, holding me, comforting my wrongs
Says it’s all ok and say that you will stay when everyone has gone

Closing both my eyes just to see a better time
Dear lady that’s your lot
She’s in love, with the feeling we blot
I want to turn around
Want to re-record the sounds
Sing better or in tune
Yet you know
It will never be true

Shame, how did you know that I’d be here?
Kicking in my sleep and walk in to the deep, black velvet that I fear
Hug these chains, like friends
Asking me if I’m really fine
Smiling till the fog, creeps up and makes this stop
Just one last empty time

Anymore just give me one last chance
I want, one final dance
Track Name: Home
Home, gonna be like it again
Wanted to make it up to the stand
I’m gonna find a way out again
Try, just a little bit try
Get it all out if you cry
We’re gonna make it again I say

home, running away again, home
I’m Getting the letter alone at night
Hold my hand, I can’t stand to fight
Tears are rolling back
Home, going to be light again home
I’m Wrapped up tight not alone
We need solid floors, four strong walls and bolted doors (again home)

I thought, a little bit more than I should
I need a little help if I could
I’m missing a piece again why?
Charge, change just a little bit more
I always save myself for the floor
I gotta get the scent out of my nose, now I’m going...

I’ve found, a piece of heart on the ground
Discarded by someone who’s sound
I can’t clear now from my ears
Track Name: Let's Drop It
If you told me now that I was gonna be the cow
And you would milk me me everyday
I would make a change, it wasn’t me that acted strange
I just tried to get away

Hold onto honey it’s a bit of a drag
But I’ve been changing all my clothes
Here, have your money
Now it’s covered in blood
I’ve been losing it I know

If you told me something that you don’t wanna repeated
You could tell me in the dark
I won’t tell nobody, I will keep it to myself
And I’ll always be the mark

Change into something that’s more fitting of you
I’ve been waiting for so long
Keep off the spirits and we’ll have a good night
How could I get this so wrong?

Everything I said once was a little bit distressed
But I’m driving to forget
Childish I may be but then may never understand
I can’t do without it, just yet

Cruise into summer and you’re on the last book
Been absorbed on every page
Who’s gonna be the first one take the plunge
See the shark outside the cage
Track Name: On a Wire
It’s the wire
You’re still hanging here on a wire
You change it but you can’t retire
You’re bound and your taught on the wire
Living it in on the wire
You’re still hanging here on a wire
Living a change every time
Still hanging on a wire
But why
Track Name: So Long
Such a lovely place to go
How do you know when you don’t wanna know
Said it all before but I’ll say it again
Time is rolling out so slow
What do you think about as flowers grow
Anyone could make up shit like this

But it took me so long, so long, breaking everyday
Yes it took me so long, so long, just to say

Invite me back now to that space
I kept on smiling till he went away
Closed it down but it just didn’t wanna burn.....

But it took me so long, so long, breaking everyday
Yes it took me so long, so long, just to say
But it took me so long, so long, chapter , verse and line
Yes it took me so long, so long to feel fine

Break the mirror when you face
Forgive my weakness it won’t go away
Wrap it up but don’t bury it just yet....

But it took me so long, so long, breaking everyday
Yes it took me so long, so long, just to say
But it took me so long, so long, chapter , verse and line
Yes it took me so long, so long to feel fine
Track Name: Ships & Whales
Now you watch for the light as you grasp oh so tight
To the mast like the sail in a gale
Through the storm in the room, hear the waves sing a tune
Of the birds and the shark and the whale

Scream at the tide, washing over your pride
Watch the walls crumble back into sand
Stood on the beach as you’re aching to reach
She is waving to some distant land

I don’t know what I was thinking about, but it possibly wasn’t you
I have moments in time, where the picture in mind
Is so bleak and so dark, that I can’t pull it through

Scream at the tide, washing over your pride
Watch the walls crumble back into sand
Stood on the beach as you’re aching to reach
She is waving to some distant land

Swim to the shore, keep your head from the water
That laps over you every wave
Rebuild the walls, on the cliffs not the shore
Where your heart and your worries will always be safe

Please don’t

Scream at the tide, washing over your pride
Watch the walls crumble back into sand
Stood on the beach as you’re aching to reach
She is waving to some distant land
And I’m crying in time, to the rhythm that shines
Now the sun slowly lifts into view
There’s a ship set to sail and it’s doomed not to fail
But to rise to the heavens with you.
Track Name: I See Evil
I’ve seen trouble,faces served delight
I’ve seen evil wrapped inside a smile

When the whispers come and then you’re caught in disgrace
There’s something itching on your back (and on your face)
won’t go away

I’ve seen women hunting in disguise
I’ve seen men there, evil in their eyes

I’ve seen evil, lights up in the sky
I’ve seen the devil wave and pass me by
Track Name: He Drank Soda!
He Drank Soda!
Track Name: Close your Eyes
the words to this were ad lib as recorded
Track Name: Your Heart
I’d write a thesis, PhD
To grasp the truth that honours me

When I hold you’re heart next to mine

I live a life of solitude
Surrounded by my missing youth

But I hold you’re heart next to mine

I hear you breathing in my sleep
High up above I sense you keep
My mind

When I hold you’re heart next to mine
Track Name: What Happened to the Lady?
Hey there what happened to the lady
You know, used to drive me crazy to go
A place that I didn’t know
First steps sometimes are the hardest
Last steps are never quite as far as you want
Cos your not at the front
Chasing all the chickens, pecking up the farmyard

We all can rise, way above our thoughts we fly
Kick back surprise
That only you could grow, if only we could show it all you know

Keep track, don’t tread on little people
Hold back and open up your arms for a friend
It’s all you have in the end
Birds sing, tweeting from the steeple
They look at all the silly people below
Know where they all go
They’re taking you on a trip way down below

I’d take a holiday with you girl
We’d take a boat down the river you know
We’ll go with the flow
Keep paddling, faster down the river
I can’t, my hands are in a quiver you know
Cause I just heard a banjo
They’re strange little people way out here you know
Track Name: Melrose & Me
Sun is heading in my direction
Red eye stares in my reflection
And in my mind everyone wants to smile

Moon is peeking over the day's illusion
Plants her kiss on my confusion
And in my heart everyone arrives in style

Twilight calls us all to see
Count the stars
Melrose and me
