Track Name: UTTERINGS
Spending time inside the cab
I came to realise a truth
I could not utter

From here life was a lightstream pastiche
you would not believe
what one person will do to another

now i can’t walk into a cinema
without forgetting who I am

some call it paranoia
an American schoolboy gone bad
but when you’ve seen what I’ve seen
kicking in teeth
it just ain’t kicks enough

and now I can’t listen to the 7 o clock news
without forgetting who I am

and we were all banking on the end
to bring it right
it just made headlines
it just made headlines

doomsday for the yeasayers
doomsday will never come

but when you know what i know
and when you’ve seen what I’ve seen
you’ve seen enough

because the thing
that you are searching for
is not material

you see the thing
that you are searching for
is not material

and doomsday will never come
and doomsday will never come
and doomsday will never come
Track Name: EXEGESIS
EXEGESIS:
They’ll track you down on the subway
for subtle exercise
in this cinema for novices
lost feeling

and they don’t need a reason
to break your face on the curb
and the years fall down

new needs present themselves
colour bleeds into the cell
you’re receiving the signal
but it’s weak

and when you find the reason
they will surely come
and the years break apart
like brittle shells

time
in time
in time
in time
this time
quiet they fade you out

in time
in time
in time this time
a narcotic age breaks down

and the years break apart
like brittle shells
come undone
like nstillborn souls

and the years
fall
down
Track Name: FTO
Today I fear the outcomes
the premises for action
glowing white and golden
paralysis sets in
and genesis comes undone
a violent reaction
the hand of cards has folded
there is no game to win

from the outset

I’ll join the disillusioned
and disavow reaction
to break the chain that’s moulded
the established grip
if i seem somehow saddened
by distant splintered factions
and friends i have forgotten
it’s only one more fractured step

from the outset
from the outset
desire becomes form

a distant door has opened
let me in
let me in

my desires have murmured
cleave these small hands apart
and watch the air grow thicker by the hour
Track Name: FTF
Before equal eyes
left for the hungry feeding the few
'you’ll carve a way to your own self'
promises that wither in your arms

it’s so easy to shine
saying nothing
facing the fall

the door opens to nowhere
ascend the stairs
bodies move in darkness

it was you all along
an eternal remind
announcing itself

rings out
rings out
i thought you found a face for your trial
rings out
rings out
more than hopelessness there

and before equal eyes
left for the hungry
feeding the few

it was you all along
an eternal remind
blood poured into form
a shadow you found
and you kept from the others

rings out
rings out
i thought you found a face for your trial
rings out
rings out
more than hopelessness there
rings out
rings out
i thought you found a face for your trial
i thought you found a face for your trial

bright eyed pieces burning
two halves
while the water laps at the fate of it’s asking
new walls emerge to replace the divide

rings out
rings out
i thought you found a face for your trial
rings out
rings out
i thought you found a face for your trial
rings out
rings out
i thought you found a face for your trial

and before equal eyes left for the hungry
feeding the few
Track Name: SYNCHRON
Gaining the self
but losing a sense of the other
where form is refined
footsteps too far to redeem

a living space on the shelf
discovers the law of your lies
now all that remains are the thin sheets
that cover your eyes

but the shape of your neck
and free will align
a discordant house of cards
now in synchrony

contracts ripped up
reflections torn apart
while wisdom is left for the wise

the voice of reason
devours its opposite
now all that remains
are the thin sheets that cover your eyes

where the shape of your neck
and free will align
corpse abandoned where it’s cast

and defying anaesthesia
where the seer is found to lie
your unsurest hairs refined
now in synchrony

sure hands lead to your arm
while abandoned ideas surround us
a plan to answer your I
Track Name: COLOUR
Lucid, defiant
wakened from slumber
past selves repeating
mirage of the past

dream now replacing
all sense of value
stumbling blindly
through wax walls and the arch

but they can only fail
the systems they prescribe you
when the price of desire
is rising with the tides

will time forgive
these half wracked insurrections
replayed through sighs
new souls awakening
defining fate
that we might have this moment
is history more
than memory stained on skin

I have seen the colour
no longer seeking to hold on to
through the mirror we unravel
all while searching for your heart

first answer spoken
strangles old falsehoods
seeds planted backward
quicksand of the hour

inside reflects
a brief break from the darkness
the wounded myth
escapes now soundlessly
abandoned weight
at falser altar’s worship
confusion fooled
if love is all there is

I have seen the colour
from the stars the gutters whisper
through the mirror we unravel
all while searching for your heart

will the seas now bask in wonder
from the gutter the stars whisper
through the mirror we unravel
all while searching for your heart
all while searching for your heart
all while searching for your heart
Track Name: THE CLEARING
A house in which the law is leaking
where history and person are conjoined
but slaves are slaves until the term has ended
democracy

new worlds appearing
new worlds appearing

your spine is the snake uncoiling
democracy

new worlds appearing
wake up, wake up, wake up
dream and memory combined
wake up, wake up, wake up
you call and there’s no answer
but the silence is the voice

as i glide through the silence
shards of light they scan me
mosquito takes my sample
now my blood can fly
a sense of being stared at
when we’re side by side
taken by the horizon
as our worlds collide

and as the darkness dies
dreaming in disguise

new worlds appearing
new worlds appearing
new worlds appearing

wake up
Track Name: ATHEISM
Your face appears above my glass
though which side I never knew
I had fallen for harder
the imagined or the true

cold eyes are turned away
when life is breathed into a stone
death is drawn closer now to love
a whole world decays
the old ways

but your image is persistent
seven days under review
an oasis I imagined
in your arms
in your arms

cold eyes are turned away
when life is breathed into a stone
death is drawn closer now to love
a whole world decays
the old ways

and who knew
you could breathe life into a stone
who knew
you could breathe life into a stone
and who knew
you could breathe life into a stone
the old ways
the old ways unlearned
Track Name: HISTORY
History
between us
snapping our fingers
in the spokes

history
between us
both crushing our skulls
in our hands

but i see no end to this
see no end to this
to this
to this
history

time crawls out from the docks
now all our doubts
lay shattered in the dust
it’s just a sign
to recall
forever just outside your reach
your history

and searching for the colour
in union
we find the other hollow

but i see no end to this
see no end to this
to this
to this
history

and time crawls out from the docks
now all our doubts
lay shattered in the dust
with the cruel hand
wipe the venom from your mouth
it’s just a sign
to recall
forever just outside your reach
your history

to be reconciled
torn apart
your two hands
to be reconciled
oh to be reconciled
