Track Name: Stylophone
Lyrics

I’m picking up the stones ‘cause I don’t wanna find my way back.
Don’t wanna live a life alone, is that too much to ask?
In every part of me a memory
The feeling on my skin of where you were touching me
Shudder in my bones and I don’t wanna find my way back, a-a-a back

Chorus:
I-I-I I found all that I need
And what I find, is I’m not settling
And I confide, feeling lighter and lighter
I-I-I I found all that I need
And what I find, is I’m not settling
And I confide, feeling lighter and lighter
Lighter and lighter

Watching from the walls I had this thought that I’d be locked away and
Made to hate, destroy myself, give everything to live this way
That love was just a thing for fools who couldn’t see beyond their loneliness
Content in locked up rooms to settle down for something less, but..
Chorus
*Break* “lighter and lighter”
Chorus
Track Name: Forecasting Failure
Lyrics

I heard it once, heard it twice, through the violent vines sowing seeds
But everything will wash clean, just time it to the tides
And if I stand too close to the edge I might fall in, I told you I can’t swim
I told you I can’t swim

Chorus
So I’ll catch the tides and watch the skies, just let it wash away
They’re forecasting failure but I’ll
Catch the tides and watch the skies, another seven days
So I’ll catch the tides and watch the skies, just tell me who are they
They’re forecasting failure but I’ll
Catch the tides and watch the skies, just let it wash away

I heard it once heard it twice saw the violent vines wash up on the sea
I collect them to set me free, I collect them to set me free
But if I stand too close to the edge I might fall in, But if you help me I’ll learn to swim
If you help me I’ll learn to swim

Chorus
*break*

I heard it once heard it twice saw the violent vines wash up on the sea
But I collect them to set me free, I collect them to set me free
And if I stand too close to the edge I might fall in, But if you help me I’ll learn to swim
If you help me I’ll learn to swim.
Track Name: Robotic Love
Lyrics

Hard times, call for black lies
Long nights, avoiding your eyes
Once I, told the first lie
In your eyes, I’ve read enough to program, my robotic love

Chorus
My robotic love x 4

Ground me, I’m your machine
Fuse me, circuit complete
Break me, overload me
Then drain me, testing my resistance, my robotic love
Chorus
It’s a hard drive, after long nights
And new lines, in this harsh light
Refined, change and rewrite
Hard wired, after the one and only, my robotic love
Chorus
Flip the switch and amplify
Finish decoding what you like
I alternate my current life
No back up, you’re left behind
Oscillating side to side, what is the truth what is a lie
Keep pushing ‘til the battery dies, on my robotic love
Chorus x 2
Track Name: Work Me Up
Lyrics

Moving slowly closer on the first night
Feeling so electric being there with you
When our lips collided by the first light
Everything was gone all I felt was you

So put your hands where I can feel them darling
Don’t look back, it’s not too early
I’ll put my hands where you can feel them darling
We’ve drawn out a map, now let’s start learning
Chorus
You work me up so I’m ready for, ready for love
You work me up so I’m ready for, ready for love
I want your touch and I’m ready for, ready for love
You work me up so I’m ready for, ready for love

You lift my hair and kiss my spine, to feel your skin pressed up to mine
You’re moving closer taking time, your fingers gentle on my jaw line
I feel the shiver moving up my skin I have to close my eyes
And take a deep breath in, my body pushing back as you push in
Chorus
*break*
Slowly now, here for hours
Hold me down, overpower
Closer now, here for hours
Then hold me down, this passion’s ours
Chorus
Track Name: The Kite
Lyrics

Oh God I never mind the hardest part
In my mind I see another world an easy start
I drag it with the corners bent
And it’s colder than the weather said

Oo we’ll give another try
Cause you’re beautiful and that red jacket calls to mind
An ember waiting for the wind
To strike up the flame again

Chorus
Run, and I fly so high
Sitting here waiting for the young to die and I
Run, I fly so high, waiting for the young to die

Like a fool I’m running through the grass
By some miracle it catches and it pulls me back
With such a force I let it go, watch it float away to be alone
A quiet sadness in the letting go, but it’s flying strong as ever with the string below
Held by a solid hand
“I’ve got it” is all you said.

Chorus
*break* reverse chorus
Chorus x 2
Track Name: Can Be Wrong
Lyrics

It was dark outside so the flames were burning bright in the streets
And as the crowds drew near I was shaking from the fear and heat
And when I saw their eyes for the very first time it hit me
That while they came for my life it wasn’t I the one who feared defeat

Chrous
So take my hand
Nothing can be wrong again
So take my hand
Nothing can be wrong again

When the crowd grew quiet they were reeling from their height a man came
And when he spoke from his lips came a horrid little hiss of blame
And while he stood so tall yelling high upon his throne, red and vain
We cried “your God's not white, and there's gonna be a fight tonight!”
Chorus x 2
*break*
Chorus x 2
Track Name: The Other Side
Lyrics

Deep inside these prison walls
A search for time in the cloudless sky
Is this a sign?
Golden light moves on the floor
And I trace its lines with my hands and eyes
Is this a sign?

Loneliness has had its time
And on the bed I lie listen to her cry
Her heart beats twice
Slow the muted colors fall
And in the dark I sigh, sleep away the night
Just close your eyes

Chorus
On the other side you’ll stay x 4
*break*
Chorus
Track Name: Catherine
Lyrics

They found you down, the river bed, The tangled weeds growing through your hair
You’re miles away, it feels the same
I saw how hard it was to stay
They found you down, the river bed, The tangled weeds growing through your hair
You’re miles away, it feels the same
I saw how hard it was to change

Chorus
Yes I know, I let you go, Want me to feel the same
And I couldn’t help you at all
Yes I know, let me throw all of this life away
Cause I couldn’t stand while you crawl
Yes I know, paid what’s owed, I didn’t want to change, and I couldn’t answer the call
Yes I know, let this show end
Cause I couldn’t help you at all

When it came time, I found no truth, Burned up by fire that had burned in you
You’re miles away, I’m not ok
You see how hard it is to stay?
But in this right, I found no truth, I won’t believe that this woman is you
In this parade, I feel the same
Rewind the tape and we’ll start again

*break*

Chorus
Track Name: Souvenir
Lyrics

You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
A little figurine of you just beside the mirror
Maybe a postcard wishing you were here
I’ll show you off so I’ll make it something I can wear

Chorus
You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
It’s the only way that I’ll keep you in my life my dear
You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir

Take, take a shot with the image of the Croix de Guerre
A shiny little thing but the spelling of your name’s not here
The magnets of your words, that add refrigerator flair
The globe it snows but the windup music’s hard to bare

You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
Oh but I wish you were, so that I could make you disappear
You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
But it’s the only way, that I keep you in my life my dear

You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
I’ll show you off so I’ll make it something I can wear
You said you didn’t want to be just a souvenir
Track Name: Pause
Lyrics

You said you “think about me”
Well what the hell does that mean?
And is it just to be seen?
Was it just a kiss? You place your mouth against my quiet lips

Time, the sweat is pouring in my eyes
I’m pushing hard because I’m blind, I’m blind, so blind
Time, the pain is coming from inside
It’s not a wound that you can find, it’s my heart, it’s my mind

Chorus
Can you step back, ‘cause you’re on my track, I’m gonna crack
It’s a heart attack
Can you step back, ‘cause you’re on my track, I’m gonna crack,
It’s a heart attack

Time, all the blood on you is mine
But the color suits you fine; it brings out, your eyes
Time, and now you’ve got me from behind
It’s not exactly a surprise,’ cause I know, your kind
Chorus - time
ca fait du bien, fait attention
s’en fait trop, fait que de l’amour
Je dis rien, elle fait des siennes
fait de mon mieux /c’est malicieux et elle s’en fout
Chorus - time
Track Name: Someone Else
Lyrics

Said my songs are too depressing, can’t I write you something else?
I don’t feel it that way, I don’t see it that way

If your life is so unhappy, you can be with someone else
But you want me to stay, and you wanted to stay
If your life is so unhappy, you can be with someone else
And you know what I’ll say, when you need me to stay

I don’t know why you came this way, but I’m not your enemy
And you try to make me, something that I won’t be
Oh I don’t know why you came this way, but I’m not your enemy
And I’ll try to agree, but you never let me
*I don’t know why you came this way*

I hope that you can be happy someday
I hope that you can be happy one day
I hope that you can be happy someday
I hope that you can be happy one day

I don’t know why you came this way
Track Name: Find Another Girl
Lyrics

And I saw her cry again yesterday
I’m sorry, it was late
The whites in her eyes a map of the pain
She moves in, from the rain

And I saw her touch the sides of her face
Her moves with simple grace
The delicate hand that begs me to stay
I know that she knows she drives me insane

I hear, the sounds, cross between the walls and though it seems
These times, she is truly happy but he leaves, and she’s left and broken
Leaning on the door, where he’s, left to find another girl

And I saw her touch the sides of her face
..the way, where I always see her, she was here..
Her moves with simple grace
..so sad, I don’t even know her name..
The delicate hand that begs me to stay
..these times, she is truly happy but he leaves…
I watch as she smiles and lies “it’s ok”
Track Name: Write You Lines
Lyrics

I write you lines from the movies, that I watched, when I was young
I love it here but I don’t know how to explain, I don’t feel a thing
I write you lines from the movies, that I watched, when I was young
I love it here but I don’t know how to explain, I don’t feel the same

It’s been three months since I meant it how can I let, let this go?
Not afraid to be alone, but afraid, of you alone
It’s been three months since I meant it how can I let, let this go?
Not afraid to be alone, but afraid, of you alone

You’re lying on your back
You’ve fallen asleep
I’ll read this page until we’re healed
..these books don’t tell me how to feel..
I’m falling on my back, wanting for sleep
…you’re falling on your back
I’m sure you’ll tell me how I feel
…tell me how I feel
You’re lying on your back
You’ve fallen asleep
I’ll read this page until we’re healed
..these books don’t tell me how to feel..
I’m falling on my back, wanting for sleep
…you’re falling on your back
I’m sure you’ll tell me how I feel
…tell me how I feel
Track Name: Never Mine
Lyrics

Here’s to the way that you had tried to lie
But I was just another thing to try
I said that’s fine, you were never mine
You said your father was an engineer
But you were never really all that clear
Well I said that’s fine, you were never mine
You threw the game when you threw the dart
And you knew it from the very start
I said that’s fine, it’s about damn time

Well I’m sure your stories entertain
But the lines are written on my face
I said that’s fine
Go on tell the one about the time
You were without me and you thought you’d die
I said that’s fine
Here’s to the way that you had tried to lie,
But I was just another thing to try
I said that’s fine
You threw the game when you threw the dart
And you knew it from the very start
I said that’s fine, you were never mine
*break*
Said your father was an engineer, and you were never really all that clear, I said that’s fine
You threw the game when you threw the dart, tell them all about your broken heart
I said that’s mine, you were never mine.
