Track Name: SWIM
I don’t want to be fated
I’d like to choose
When someone
Moves behind me
Someone who is not me

You’ve sequenced my genome
Am I suitably frail
Just tell me
That you like me
It’s what I’d like to hear

Ooh

Taken from the real
I don’t want to feel
Track Name: Blakaut
What happened last night
was it a nightmare
My skin was pulling off
But it excited me
the way the walls bend
when I opened the door
I’m staring at the sun
I’m staring at the floor

I fell a thousand miles
I scratched my name out
I took a nom de plume
I rode a sonic boom
wants to taste thunder
a sticky sugary fight
she can’t remember
she can’t remember


and i’m fighting
on too
too many fronts
ease my cracked bones
put it all back together

assassins throwing stars
the jet black beams
a little piece of colour
illuminated me


and i’m fighting
on too
too many fronts
ease my cracked bones
oh ooh woah oh
put it all back together
Track Name: The Hungry Ghosts
I am a stranger
in my own skin
No guests arrive
There’s flesh to fry

Spitting nonsense
outside your window
I catch the light
begin again

begin again (x4)

Against the coming waves
I have the hope of a saint
In a coracle
It breaks the bows
All these dirty words
I eat your poison darts
I eat them whole


What’s left for me
Break it off
and feed it to me
Just want a piece
break it off
and feed it to me

I don’t want to wait again
You’re never going to take me with
Track Name: There's no Harm in Trying
And finally the words come
patching up the broken line
It’s hardwired in my blood
the push and pull
I am my father’s son

Show me what desire is
and show me where the line is
So teenage and so tragic
A flair for the dramatic
I am my father’s son

What’s wrong
With trying
There’s no harm
In trying

Just suffer like an artist
and home is where the heart is
I was always less than honest
I was always less than honest
I am my father’s son
Track Name: Tunnels
Take my hand
Don’t be scared
I want
what’s best
for you

catch my fire
in cold desire
i want
what’s best
for you

And I wait
for it
And these tunnels
never end
Track Name: Settle
There’s nothing to fall back on now
Do I jump off the deep end
Do I call up my best friend
a pantomime
a farce
will the morning erase it
can I ever replace it

I can’t describe when
when I feel cold
and when I go out
I just feel old
the things you wanted
I wish I gave
but there’s no choice anyway

It takes my courage in an instant
I love the days when we’re not different
I take no pleasure in this distance
I take no pleasure from this distance

Why can’t I?

Came back again
Why did I come back
Came back again
Why did I come back
Track Name: Wound
Take
Everything you can
Watch the shoots
Spring from my hand

Wound
Against you
Tied down
I left you

Caught
again
Oh make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it end

Wound
Against you
Tied down
I left you

I trust that it was worth it
In the end
An open hidden secret
Playing out its madness
