Track Name: Here All Day
I told you you’d have to wait
Here all day, here all day
The rain is hurting on your face
Stop looking up your looking strange
I told you you’d have to wait
Here all day, here all day
The rain is hurting on your face
Stop looking up your looking strange
I Hope you find
What you’re looking for, what you’re looking for
I told you you’d have to wait
Here all day, here all day
The rain is hurting on your face
Stop looking up your looking strange
Track Name: Everytime You'll See
Every time you’ll see
They’ll be watching over me
Every fallen soul
Is guiding your way home
So never be afraid
Is all they want to say

They trim your path
Allowing for yourself
They watch out
For your dreams
And shelter you fro m fear
So never be afraid
Is all they want to say
Track Name: Safe for Now
Another melancholy Night
The rain pours down
It distorts the light
You jeans are wet up to your knees
As you shelter in the open doorway
People rushing for the inside lane
To avoid the oncoming tidal waves
Umbrellas shield the well prepared
For the rest of us it’s just another lesson spared

Where you go
You are safe for now

An open fire in every snug
A beacon for your melancholy soul
A congregation of like minds
In a town like this its never too hard to find

Where you go
You are safe for now
Where you go
You are safe for now

Tourists laugh at predictions made
Of the pubs the snugs, the wind, the rain
But it’s this melancholy atmosphere
That so many people find endearing

Where you go
You are safe for now
Track Name: Menacing Form
The breeze that follows slumber
Always precedes the rain
You hold yourself together
But its all in vein
You are the one who suffers
But you won’t do it on your own
Why is it that you always
Take the longest route home

The black clouds gather
You’ve got to reap what you sow
The black clouds will gather you
Right down to your soul
The black clouds will spin your
Yourself self around my spine

The black clouds gather
Amass a menacing form
Why is it that you always
Take the longest route home

The black clouds gather
You’ve got to reap what you sow
The black clouds will gather you
Right down to your soul
The black clouds will spin your
Yourself self around my spine
Track Name: Footpaths of Shame
When you say
You’re feeling low
There is only one response to expect
To run away and
Take what you can to be numb

You hide yourself
From all the world to see
You play your part
Now everybody’s pleased
You’re so lonely now
And nothing feels real
And it goes on like so

When darkness forms
Everybody knows
It’s all down hill
From here

The winter passes
You don’t notice the cold
Wrapped in the comforts
Of your sins
Oblivious to the world outside
An the turmoil within

When darkness forms
Everybody knows
It’s all down hill
From here

The summer comes
The days get long
The daylight shows you ashamed
Your face is sinking
With the weight of the sun
And darkness offers you grace

The winter comes
Back around again
This time you notice it’s cold
You take your last breath
On the footpaths of shame
Your want to live just grew old
Track Name: Autumn Leaves
Like leaves fallen from autumn leaves
The memories they disappear
In the undergrowth of your soul
To rejuvenate and start new growth

Hidden memories they breath a lack of trust
Not seen by you
But all them others must

Hiding and lying will make you suffer
To others around you, you became insufferable
The truth in your eyes
The truth in your fears
Behind your eyes lies the soul
Track Name: Up Up and Away
I need all
This damp and rusty soil
I’ve been put down
Now up is my only way
In my troubled life
It seemed the easiest escape
Just lie in this box
Wait for the angels to take me

I’m only three feet in the ground
The lazy bastards stopped digging
Half way down
I’ll wait and all will be clear
The angels take me oh lord
subdue my fear
I hope these angels come
Please Lord don’t leave me
Waiting, wishing I had been burned
Track Name: Watch it All Fall Down
When you are going down
You don’t know
Just how far it all goes
And don’t you listen
Oh so hard
All these opinions are a farce

We all think we know more
Than anyone who has come before us
Will we be the one to see it all fall down
If so it’s no ones fault but ours

You can’t believe in anyone else
Before you see some good yourself
And if we leave it will be just fine
But don’t you waste more precious time

We all think we know more
Than anyone who has come before us
Will we be the one to see it all fall down
If so it’s no ones fault but ours
Track Name: Not That Easy
I’ve been following you
For all these days
And I know I will catch you
You have avoided all
The temptations along the way
But I will get you
The blackened tree stumps align the view
As far as you can see
There is no escape
You keep on running
But well following you are all your past mistakes
And I love the chase

You wanted it all
Now don’t you be so foolish
It’s not that easy
You wanted it all
Now pleases don’t you be so foolish
It’s not that easy

I’ve been following you
For all these days
And I know I will catch you
You have avoided all
The temptations along the way
But I will get you

You wanted it all
Now don’t you be so foolish
It’s not that easy
You wanted it all
Now pleases don’t you be so foolish
It’s not that easy
Track Name: This Nights Sleep
All the children fall asleep
All the children fall asleep
All the children fall asleep
As the rain came tumbling down

This nights’ peace
Is all that we need
This nights’ peace allows both of us free
This nights’ peace is for both you and me
As the rain came, tumbling down
As the rain came, tumbling down

All the children fall asleep
All the children fall asleep
All the children fall asleep
As the rain came, tumbling down
