Track Name: Moth
Oh, a headache of red lights and white traffic
Creeping through the peepshows and the alleys, so lovely
It's on my mind, it's all the time, can I get off?
Outside I swear her thighs were breathing
"Everyone says how I look much younger than I am"
It's on my mind, it's all the time, can I get off?
It's on my mind, it's all the time, can I get off?
Now I'm lost in my lust in a dream that lasts forever
Like a moth to the flame, this will be the end of me
I could hide in the flesh, we could find ourselves together
Bury me to my neck, oh I swear I'll never leave
Silent sirens confess sweet nothings
"Every man is just another boy who cries, 'mamma'"
It's on my mind, it's all the time, can I get off?
It's on my mind, it's all the time, can I get off?
Now I'm lost in my lust in a dream that lasts forever
Like a moth to the flame, this will be the end of me
I could hide in the flesh, we could find ourselves together
Bury me to my neck, oh I swear I'll never leave
It's on my mind, it's all the time, can I get off?
Track Name: Beautiful Parade
We've been dancing to heartbeats in our mind
Friends and strangers are watching from the side
Nights roll on, we're forever holding strong

And I really must say
It's a beautiful parade
What I really must say
It's a beautiful parade
And I can't stop the wheels that turn
With the words I can never say
So I hold on to something
Just long enough
To watch it all float away
 
We’ve marched miles, thumbing for a ride
And fallen asleep beside the lonely roads at night
Cars roll on, we’re singing the same songs
 
And I really must say
It's a beautiful parade
What I really must say
It's a beautiful parade
And I can't stop the wheels that turn
With the words I can never say
So I hold on to something
Just long enough
To watch it all float away

Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey
I've followed you around
Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey
It's wearing me out
Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey
I could never explain
Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey
But I'd do it again, again, again, again

And I really must say
It's a beautiful parade
What I really must say
It's a beautiful parade
And I can't stop the wheels that turn
With the words I can never say
So I hold on to something
Just long enough
To watch it all float away
Track Name: Dying To Leave
Stand up, engage, this party's kicking like a wake
Our time, is spent, hiding in shadows 'til the end... 'til the end
The host, is proud, misquoting Beach Boys to a crowd
Of rich young swing, smiling and stained the same with wine
Deep blood red
March like lemmings to the seaside
Ohhhh, lost in this scene my love
Ohhhh, dying to leave my love
We’ll hide, upstairs, I'll nick his coat for you to wear
We’ll count, the ways, they’re all completely insane
March like lemmings to the seaside
Ohhhh, lost in this scene my love
Ohhhh, dying to leave my love
These victims of pop magazines
With model lives and vacant dreams
Track Name: My Resting Place
I called around and got the word
The tide had turned and so I found
All that I made would burn tonight
I waded out to where I'd drown
My resting place

My final words up on a wall
For all to read of how I turned
I sold myself, I sailed away
I poured the fuel, now watch me burn
In my resting place

Forget me tonight
I'm going up in flames
I'm ending this charade
I'm setting things right
Forget me tonight
I'm going up in flames
I'm ending this charade
I'm setting things right

I talk in rhyme, it hides the shame
It seems a waste to leave behind
A legacy, a rotten thought
A poisoned seed to sprout in time
From my resting place
Track Name: Blood In A River
Waiting for a call from my brother
He's been living undercover
Where you been, where you been?
How'd we lose five years?
Where you been, where you been?
I watched you disappear and now
Like a ghost from the grave
It's like nothing has changed
You came home

Mum's been crazy since you left us
We had no one to protect us
Where you been, where you been?
While we were sinking?
Where you been, where you been?
I watched you disappear and now
Like a ghost from the grave
It's like nothing has changed
You came home
You spent your time in a cage
I spent mine coming of age
You nearly left it too late
To come home

Let it run, let it run, let it run, let the blood run
Track Name: On The Run
Young one, so full of young love
Nothing better come along and take you away
Young one, when will you run love?
I've got my eye on your dress and your legs and

Oh I know, oh I know
When my baby is on the run, oh I know

Tell me my name and say it again
In the basement by the lava lamp
We'll talk about God and where we go when we die
I've got my eye on your dress and

Oh I know, oh I know
When my baby is on the run, oh I know
There she goes, there she goes
When my baby is on the run, oh I know

I never wanted more than you and I, and now it is gone
I never wanted more than you and I, and now it is gone

Oh I know, oh I know
When my baby is on the run, oh I know
There she goes, there she goes
When my baby is on the run, oh I know
Track Name: Mostly Asleep
Stop, I know who you are, I’ve seen you before
Do you know my son? He’s at war
Back when I was your age, the sky was a stage
Now all the giant birds are circling

Because I'm a faulty bag of thoughts and mostly asleep
I'm a used car salesman, it's 1980
I'm a cold walk up a river bed, I’m in and out of my own head
I'm a young man in a skeleton and mostly asleep

Shut the window again, the weather is grim
And the cold will ache my bones
Leave the radio on, so I can believe
Your mother might appear to sing along

Because I'm a faulty bag of thoughts and mostly asleep
I'm a used car salesman, it's 1980
I'm a cold walk up a river bed, I’m in and out of my own head
I'm a young man in a skeleton and mostly asleep

The sickness of age cuts lines in my face
Just payment for time I’ve borrowed
The years all but fade, erasing the tape
And leaving a bed of sorrow
Track Name: Paper Doll
You're always in and out again like a good thief
Sliding beneath the door to where I rest
You'd paper-cut your final words on my bare skin
And leave me to wake and read them on my chest

I wouldn't pretend to understand
My paper doll... not fit to fold... I'll hold you while I can

I cut you out from a crowd of playthings
And promised to keep you from the rain
I'd dance with you in public space if it helped things
But you'd catch the wind and tear away

Paint your smile and then
Forget it is there
It’s on off on again
Again it’s on again
Track Name: The Only Eve
Reeling tonight inside my god I got to hide the heart I find hanging from my sleeve like a bloody stone
Under the night sky I spied her eyes wired and wide-eyed moonlight shining out brightly tired and alone
Jesus save me from myself please someone help me rise from my knees my god you have got to let me know
When did I swap thoughts of her for sleep? Every beat follows her for she's fuel to the fire that makes me glow

On the only eve I've ever known
Keep me floating, cos I can't be alone.

Trying to tie down logic for a lifetime, throwing hopeless love a lifeline, leaving loneliness to fold
We're all born under a burning sun and spend our lives scared on the run forgetting all the things that we were told

Reeling tonight inside my god...
Track Name: Learn The Ropes
We could talk around what we're thinking
Or we could talk between knotted sheets
Yeah oh, you are dangerous, I know
But I'd like to learn the ropes

There's a science to how you're moving
Instinct and pheromones, two parts brooding
You could hogtie my soul
Still I'd like to learn the ropes

You never learned to love without pain
Or stopped yourself from falling out again

I could go without a little breathing
If you could say between gritted teeth
That I will never be alone
Because I'd like to learn the ropes

You never learned to love without pain
Or stopped yourself from falling out again
This I know, I'm tied to you
