Track Name: Cracked Fountains
Kill the silence kill the noise
Push it out with all your sugardaddy's toys
Blow the drainage as we speak
No one can live it out on purely misery

Oh, what you waiting for?
I said oh, what you dreaming for?

Vanquished foes I tried to call
Something in reverse moves forwards after all
Put the pickles in the bin
Soak yourself in brine until it is the end

Oh, what you waiting for?
I said oh, what you dreaming of?!

Betty breaks down inside the charade
And you tell me it’s all going to be okay
Face the facts, you know it’s true
She loves me and he loves you

Slay the doves from up above
Did it to prove to them, that you are tough
Broke the windows, broke the walls
She wouldn’t scream when you shattered the decor!

Oh, who you waiting for?
I said oh, who you dreaming of?!

Betty breaks down inside the charade
And you tell me it’s all going to be okay
Yeah you would!
Face the facts, you know it’s true
She loves me and he loves you
Yes he does!
He loves you
Track Name: A Day With You
Woke up this morning and got out of bed
Dragged the razor blade over my head
Screamed as the shower water burned
When will I ever learn?!
I ran to the bus stop with mismatched shoes,
It must be a case of those Monday blues
Tripped as my laces untied,
But all that I’ve bruised is my pride

And I know, that it’s going to be
A beautiful day for me
And I know, that it’s going to be
A beautiful day for me

We made paper planes and we watched them soar
Who said that rainy days were a bore?
You’d always scream with delight
Excited as they take flight
We strolled to the river and found us a boat
The wood’s way too heavy to keep us afloat
Oh yeah the tide’s coming in
Let’s just go for a swim


And I know, that it’s going to be
A beautiful day for me
And I know, that it’s going to be
A beautiful day for me

The moon it is rising, the stars are all out
Let’s take our sleeping bags and camp about
Summer is on the way in!
We won’t go shirts we’ll go skins
Paint me a picture in my mind’s eye
You tell the truth I won’t tell any lies
Sunrise is pouring in
We cannot shake off our grins

And I know, that it’s going to be
A beautiful day for me
And I know, that it’s going to be
A beautiful day for me

A beautiful, a beautiful, a beautiful, a beautiful day for me
Track Name: The Valley
Rose with the morning sun
Talking tips and trips and places we’ve gone
Bathing in this summer’s heat
Our feet on the ground floats the dust from the street

My eyes, they tell you no lies
My eyes, they say no goodbyes

Stepped through the stony gate
The vines grow big and the earth never shakes
Bathing in this summer’s heat
Our feet on the ground floats the dust from the street

My eyes, they tell you no lies
My eyes, they say no goodbyes

View the valley from the top of the hill
Panoramic, sunbathed, picturesque still
All things seen in this summer’s heat
Our feet on the ground floats the dust from the street

My eyes, they tell you no lies
My eyes, they say no goodbyes
My eyes, they tell you no lies
My eyes, they say no goodbyes
Track Name: Breathe
I’ve been ten thousand miles from home
Most of the time was spent all alone
I once spoke to you in a dream
Sounds easy, but it’s harder than it seems

I stayed awake from some eight long months
Hoping that you would not ever give up
I spent my early years with a blindfold on
Now all I see is that you’re gone

Breathe in, and out
And in

Prospects of you kept heart and hope warm
But the cold sets in with no fires to burn
There were some sunny days and chilled winter nights
Made all the better with you snuggled up tight

Breathe in, and out
And in
Breathe in, and out, and in

I’m holding on to hope
Don’t let my throat choke
I’m holding on to hope
Don’t give up the ghost
I’m holding on to hope
Don’t let my throat choke
I’m holding on to hope
Don’t give up the ghost
Track Name: The Wild
In ten thousand days, I’ll teach you how to lie
And when you go, I’ll teach you how to die
Expect my face, to appear in your dreams
Expect my hand, to work in ways unseen

Take me and go, far away from here
To the desert snow, where we’ll drink whisky and beer
Uproot the hopes, of parents so concerned
Uproot my dreams, and take a violent turn

Fire and ice is burning in my brain
Fire and ice is running through my veins
Fire and ice is all that I know
Fire and ice, and I’m tumbling, tumbling down

I was once in love, with a darling girl
I showered her, with jewels, diamonds and pearls
It took me some time, to realize it was wrong
And so I ran, into the morning fog

Fire and ice is burning in my brain
Blood and poison is running through my veins
My little book, is all that I know
Fire and ice, and I’m tumbling, tumbling down
Track Name: The Bearer and the Snake
The god destroyer has come
To take over our minds
The god destroyer has come
To take away your spine

The Tulapi faces have come, so please move quickly dear
The Tulapi faces have come, let’s run away from here
Oh Mary where have you gone, what does your spyglass see?
Oh Mary where have you gone? I’m praying down on my knees

Time is the only thing that binds me
Time is the only thing that truly binds me

The god destroyer has come
To take over our minds
The god destroyer has come
To take over your spine

Oh William how you saved my life, oh William how you bear that knife
Oh William how you saved my life, oh William how can you bear to bare that knife?!
And which world are you in? Oh which world are you in?
Are you with the bearer of sin, the Eve to my Adam’s eye?

Time is the only thing that binds me
Time is the only thing that truly binds me

The god destroyers have come
To take away your spine
The god destroyers have come
To take away your mind
Track Name: The Storm
And it wasn’t long before the
Sunset turned to dusk
And the fiery glow was softened
Hues, to rust
As the winter winds blow
As the fire dies
As you fill my cup
As I look, into your eyes

Please don’t tell me no
Please don’t say goodbye
Please don’t let me go
I would die

And it wasn’t long before the
Waves did crash below
Up high a storm was brewing
Turmoil, below
But with you it’s warm here
Sheltered from the storm
Something great is happening
We’re adored!

Please don’t tell me no
Please don’t say goodbye
Please don’t let me go
I would die!

Please don’t tell me no
Please don’t say goodbye
Please don’t let me go
I would die!

Please don’t tell me no
Please don’t say goodbye
Please don’t let me go
I would die!
Track Name: Tovarich
Oh brother, please hear me
Throw out your crown
Leave me and my own alone, unless you want to stay down
You’ve fried yourself, you’ve cooked a meal
You killed off your family, because we’re just too real
You’ve gone over a bump, and now you’re too high
Spread your wings and fly

Oh brother, please hear me
Leave me to mourn
The death of my childhood has been spat out in scorn
I once wanted to be, who you are
But killing my family is going too far
You pushed us out, then asked for appeal
The life you’ve been living is considerably too real
You’ve taken a dip, and now you’re too low
Just take your things and go

Oh brother, please hear me
It’s a song in my head
I no longer care if you’re living or dead
Your life it means nothing, to you or your wife
Compared to the pot and the skag and the ice!
You stole from the dying, because you are sick
I’m very much hoping your death hasn’t been quick
You’ve taken a wrong turn, and you’ve done it again
Heaven won’t let you in
Track Name: The Close
I hitchhiked my way from Dijon to Bordeaux
While you were in the art room playing silly songs
It wasn’t long before my pride got the best of me
And, it wasn’t long before the show
You took hold of my hand, and then let me fall through waiting arms
Tell me what’s this young man to do?
A brash sober response, or a well thought out drunken plea
Which route is the right way to go?

How many times must you break my wounded heart
How long until we're through
And when, when will I understand,
That I’m not the man for you?

So then I went back, across the world to my home town
Just to lie in bed alone
How will you show me that you ever gave a care?
How will I know your words are true?
There’s this certain notion that keeps me warm on lonely nights
Darling this is also hard for you
So think of me please, and listen to my happy songs
Just know that I wrote them for you

How many times do you have to smash my strawberry tart?
How many times until we’re through?
How long will it take for me to understand,
That I’m not the man for you?
Track Name: Chariot
Here I am, slip sliding away
Flowing down the river bed to
Here we go, day dreaming now
Screaming ‘till our feet hit the ground
Lift me up, hold me near
Take me to where I need to be

Because the sun shines on the mountain tops
And the rivers flow to where she is
And the wind cries of my pain
And tells of how much I need
You

Flowers turn, as the sun crosses the sky
Take me when the chariot rides!
The moon she smiles, and lifts her head
Please show me where to go from here!

Because the sun shines on the mountain tops
And the rivers flow to where she is
And the wind cries of my pain
And tells of how much I need

Because the sun shines on the mountain tops
And the rivers flow to where she is
And the wind screams of my pain
And tells of how much I need
You
Track Name: Shine
Waking up is heaven, when I’m next to you
Bathing in the fresh light, tasting the morning dew
Playful shadows shift as, the sun passes on
All wrapped up together, dressed up like new-borns

Fireflies light the darkness, like you light mine
Take the time to admire; the ones who make us shine
Spent the evening talking, to bards about their prose
Spent the evening watching, the models strike their pose

Dusk is a pretty hour, sitting on the hill
A silhouetted city, becomes a mental still
And as the streetlights brighten, we’ll make a toast with our wine
To all the times remembered, to the ones who make us shine

I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon
I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon
I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon
I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon
I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon, I’ll be with you soon
