Track Name: Out Of Sight
You’re not thinking
Time to time
You’re going to love
The way your hand fits into mine
You’ll need someone
To make yourself complete

You can tell us
How it’s meant to be
And how you
Do without identity
And I think
You believe your own conceit

Turning it out
Like you say you will
You never give up
Like you say you will
Dead in the water
And unfulfilled
Turning it out
Like you say you will
Picking it up
While you try so hard
Sick in the back
Like I know you are
Stoking it up
Like it worked so far
Picking it up
Like I know you are

You have the heart
To place the blame again
And what I want
Is not the same
As what I say I want
But that’s ok
It’s alright

All this time
We’ve talked mistakes
And now the less you are
The more you take
And you are cold enough
To fool yourself sometimes

You run it up and down and out of sight
I’ve got a tight thing ‘round my throat tonight

I’m going to exit exit exit
Track Name: Receiver
When I was on my way to recovery
I was the eyes of a perfect storm
Staring all things down
As the oceans raged right in front of me
I felt the pinnacle of function and form
I saw your wife and kids playing family
While I was driving to the corner shop
When it all fell through
So I called my mother from a Bakelite phone
As the pinwheel started to dance
She said, “I’ve got plans for you.”

Why can’t a man or a woman choose solitude?
Is it not enough to be the sum of your parts
Nothing more, nothing less?
Struck dumb by delusions of adequacy
I was shackled to a life of success
When the unstoppable force of austerity
Meets an immovable object of desire
My desire will cool
Postcards from a blank infinity
I will pick up the receiver and smile
When they say, “I’ve got plans for you.”
Track Name: What I'd Do
For any toll it’s taken
For any closing act
There’s a light on waiting
Push the cover back
For a better reason
For a longer fall
Like it’s never been done
Like we never saw

And when it starts to build up
Does it matter what I’d do
Don’t it look familiar
But I would come back feeling new

You forget it quicker
And if it’s better hid
It would talk as bitter
As I ever did
And I could try and tell you
I could feel untouched
But you designed to cut through
I never knew how much

I would come back feeling
Something closer aligned
And I would come back seeing
Something old in your eyes

I would come back feeling new
Track Name: Horizons
Most nights you feel like a whore in every room
Hours drag but the morning comes too soon
Slowing your heart 'til you fear that horizons will fall
Slowing your heart to a murmur
Horizons are coming to you

He said, "Show me faith and I'll show you the World"
You know it's guys like him who always blame the girl
Fucking away on a promise he'll always betray
Fucking away on a promise
Horizons are coming to you

I changed the lock
I forced the key
I took a chance on baby and me
I pulled the string
I made the call
I switched the gin with the ethanol
I washed my hands
I turned away
I let the getaway get away
I slowed your heart
I made you fear horizons as they disappear
Because all of this is new and I've been improved
I never saw it before
All the blood and the sweat and the anguish
The weight of the World and the spit on the floor
So come on, make me an offer we'll always regret
'Cause we're young and we're desperate for more
I walk the line like a new horizon,
Distant and ready to score
Until I become the sweat that drips from every pore.
Track Name: For All I Know
Well all the time
That’s running past
I’ll let it slide
If you will be the last

And has it been
This colourless
I let it leave
And I can recover it

We set it down
A little left
To gather up
Just souvenirs you kept

Forget about the better thing
Be typical
If you can be anything

For your head
For your soul
For all I said
For all I know
For your bed
For your home
For all I care
For all that I don’t
Track Name: Paydirt
You said
I want to be the place
You call home
And do you doubt I’ll be the rope
You swing from

You said
I’ve got to be appeased
With the cold facts
And all I want’s a little heat
To keep back

Between the sun and the earth
We gather the speed
You know we deserve

Between the sky and the dirt
The act and the plea
I know we desert
You’re telling me

I know you’re seeing all the worth
In new plans
I know it feels a little worse
At my hand

And you could take me to the cusp
It’s no first
If I could only beat the rush
The pay dirt

You’re telling me
Track Name: Animal
You said I’m tired of creeping
Around every delicate fact
Is that a manner of speaking
Is that a plan of attack

If you don’t want to be patient
And I don’t want an excuse
Nobody told you to take it
We want a tooth for a tooth

So give me something to pay for
‘Cause I don’t know where to begin
Its getting harder to make that call
And break that fall
And feel that same thing

And people say it’s a pity
And we don’t know we are born
But we are the sound of the city
We are the eye of the storm

And don’t you think you’re afraid of
Nobody finding you out
Maybe we’re nothing but restless
Well it aches until
You talk yourself down

I’m animal
You’re animal

Tell me so

We are the eye of the storm
Track Name: October
See it all decided
Forget you might have been
This should be the start of something big
We don’t underwrite it
The walls are getting thin
I could only be a part of what you think

So in the better light of day
Did you mean
Anything by half or inbetween
Would you loosen up and stay
Because I don’t see

And you will
Say you won’t

So you left it finally
Lifting the part you should’ve played
I don’t know how I got there but I did
And the pattern is no different
Sensation all the same
I’m always at the heart of something hid

And I hope you see
Far less in me
And I hope this time
Will see my head right
And I hope you do
And it turns out untrue
And I wish we’d kept
So much unsaid

And you will
Say you won’t
Track Name: Money Talks
Were you won
In an instant changing
Did anyone show you different baby
Stupid does
And you come back here when
It’s not enough in a heartbeat really

I know my half cut traits are clear
And all of that wasted space is here
Some of those tired fakes
Could be us

Will you walk
If you get no nearer
Money talks
You and me we hear it
Every day
It’s a comfort somehow
But I would take any cold blood way out

The giving
The longer it takes
The fade in
The bleed out
The keener it makes you
Track Name: Rocket Science
Baby sit back
Going to impress this slow
You haven’t seen that pedigree yet I know
Don’t deny it
Anything less than perfectly
Is old to me
And I missed it
Letting you slip undone
Didn’t I gift you
Some kind of sequence
Never repeat this
Know this rush is owed to us

I can hear you saying it like you do every time
I can hear you
Can I hear you

No reliance
No animosity
Rocket science
Hardly but I can sleep
You remember everything don’t you
All that space will shake you open
Then you know me
I like it this way best
You’ve got trouble
Pushing down on your chest
Heavy breathing
Never could keep my promises
I promised it

Talking round it
Talking longer
I can hear you getting stronger
Going faster
Growing fonder
Celebrate it
Little wonder

Saying Russian roulette that’s my test
I’m going to take these ricochets unless
You want to talk about how you know best
I know
I know
I know
Track Name: Looking For Life
You don’t need to account for mistakes
Try as you might
We go looking for life
Much too late
Did you find it tonight

We get used to an easy restraint
Too grounded to fight
We are still slipping under

We could drown if you like
Track Name: Howling At The Sun
Truss up the soul that I sold
Hollow fingers make the cut
Ink the deal
Drain the colours as you leave
My red-blooded half half asleep
We talk of stimulus in lieu of stimulation
It’s no substitute for me

These are the homes that we built
On expensive quicksand
These are the lies we told ourselves
Here are the hot leads we worked cold
Here are the stocks we oversold
I will leave you naked
I will leave you naked
And howling at the sun

Excised all the things that you said wouldn’t matter:
My ambition, personality and matters of a heart
That breaks as I bend into shapes you approve of
I remember that I came here
I remember nothing more

These are the futures you bought
That meant nothing to you
These are the lies we told ourselves
We are the deals that break and bind
We are the gears that grate and grind
We will leave you broken
We will leave you broken
And howling at the sun
Track Name: Gratitude Falling
Still inclined to it
A cynical thought
Why don't we call it entitlement
And crawl back to that

You resign to it
Is that what you mean
The kind that you need
Don't come by enough
For changing the fact

The pieces you find are just
Patterns you've known on the way
The feeling you hide is just
Gratitude falling away

Take good care of it
The battle you choose
And as far as you do
Don't lay low for it
With all that to prove

Is it rarity
Or habit impressed
Tell me when did you get so afraid
To be anything new

Would you talk it up
While it's cheapening
For the holding out
Oh won't you have the release of it
Talk it out
While it's weakening
Are you cold enough
For the simple receipt of it
Talk it up
While it's cheapening
For the holding out
And the less that it seems
That I'm cold enough
Incomplete enough
To be holding out
For the simple receipt of it
