Track Name: Safe With Me
Door to door , lips to ear sweet nothing you’ll hear
Indulgence is worth, lies and fear, lies and fear.
Bones, lie raw, ‘hind closet doors , you keep hurling in more
The neighbours can’t complain, they’re doing the same

Guilt, can feel heavy when ‘round your neck
But don’t hang yourself yet
The teacher’s pet has regrets
but keeps his dripping fingers squeaky clean
Rinse thoroughly in-between

Cutting it thin,
Feed your demons within
The mutt in your gut
He bites, gives only grief
Sinks his teeth, makes you grin
Why wait? Let him begin

Your secret is safe with me.
Track Name: Brainwave
Where are the thoughts that are forgotten?
Fermenting out of reach going rotten

A shame

Who's to blame?


Think things that keep our minds from flowing
That slow the traffic of our knowing

Brainwave

Wish I could save



Some one should,
Go out in these thought showers
Drink like a chimney and soak up these powers



Neglect has left a realm for stealers

That thrive on intellect for meals
A dumb deal

Promise its real


Air-head who knows what was said?

Something like


‘Only cobwebs curtain your brain's remains

What a shame

Least we're not to blame’


Someone should, go out in these thought showers 

Drink like a chimney and soak up these powers

They are theirs 'till they're ours


Wish you would

Just drench in these thought showers 

Smoke like a fish '
caus it's worth such magic powers
Someone should, go out in these thought showers 

Drink like a chimney and soak up these powers

They are theirs 'till they're ours


Wish you would

Just drench in these thought showers 

Smoke like a fish
'caus it's worth such magic powers
Track Name: Run Bloody Run
Play all day
In the Grass
In the green
Tell no one
Where you’ve been oh

Beating fast
Hooked at last
Carry on
Who’s to know
Where you’ve gone oh

Don’t dare care
Don’t dare care

Light the caze
You had caged
Let it go
Now you know
You’re alone oh

Don’t dare care
Don’t dare care

Up get a grip time to commit
Smack there’s the static makes you blind
But in time
Make your endless impressions
On those you want to be
Dopy daze
Lazy gaze
Tickled by
The cosy blades

Sun will shrink
Watch it sink
Take the day
Away, away

Don’t dare care
Don’t dare care

You’re on, break a leg be charming but with an edge
Be consistent, be yourself, be concerned with other’s
Health. Wealth, love, hobbies
Work hard play hard that’s the key

Here you lie
Still you hide
Getting old
But you won’t tell a soul

This can’t last
Must be past
Time is near
Just disappear
Track Name: Train Song
We could have met
But we only crossed paths
Nobody said us be best off in your
Company
Seven forty-three
You catch my train and awkwardly sit next to me

What could I have said?
There was far too much to say
I was safer pretending I’d rather to listen to my
Radio, through headphones
As if I hadn’t noticed I was not alone

I nearly met my match,
But then
Convention won again
You’ll remain undercover
My untested public transport (lover)

We would have wed
If we'd taken our chance
Had more been said
It would have been a life-long
Marriage with three kids
Shame we'd booked our tickets for the quiet carriage

I nearly met my match,
But then
Convention won again
You’ll remain undercover
My potential
Suited muted lover


Left it too late
To communicate
All I gave you was the time
Half nine easy to
Forget and not regret
Silent but content with our etiquette

I nearly met my match,
But then
Convention won again

We are too good for each other
But it seemed such a risk
Breaking this gentle tension (oooh)
Why is this?
Conversation is hardly a new invention
Attention!
We are now approaching the station
