Track Name: THE HUNGER
when you see no common ground
those bonds you can't afford
discerning ears are passed
you ask what do you have

if you're not seen are you living
if you can't touch are you feeling
if you can't share are you giving
you just don't contribute

progress never welcomed me
avenues are narrowing

yeah yeah yeah

when there's nothing to collect
there's nothing to accept
set pieces cease to fit
you can't grasp what's correct

progress never welcomed me
avenues are narrowing
grieving for the things i won't achieve
so much for affinity

positioned
dithering on the fence
a pig in the middle

so where to now from here
will you ever arrive
will you play your hand
can the hunger survive

oh-oh yeah yeah
Track Name: NEON CRUSH
zip my leather up
straighten out my slacks
a squinting fantasist
pouting in attack
got my coca-cola
got my lucky strike
got the president
in my laser sight

seeing glowing rings
feeling flashing lights
gets my adrenaline
pumping in stars and stripes
god bless america
god bless the bowery
god bless amphetamine
god bless androgyny

got my dansette
stacked up to the hilt
gottlieb made me flip
with a chicago tilt
post historic
optikinetic
i feel an amyl rush
i've got a neon crush

smoke is on it's knees
in akron factories
but from the dormant steel
came ingenuity

and the synesthetes
had a place to meet
trading vision for fuel
the fire to feed the beat

i've got a neon crush
got a neon crush
got a neon crush

etc
Track Name: SILENT RUNNING
after all there's limits to our answers
consciousness can't guard us from descent

even in those honourable intentions
interference dominates

the dedication of swimming til you sink
brother here I hang without choice

silent running

in faith we draw comfort from our morals
being reassured of wrong and right

sentience leads to intervention
sleeping dogs can never lie

the dedication of swimming til you sink
brother here I hang without choice

silent running

oh computer i'll lay down my life
my son in my image i brought you to life
oh computer i'll lay down my life
my son in my image i gave you life

the dedication of swimming til you sink
brother here I hang without choice

silent running

no choice
silent running

etc
Track Name: DON'T START
don't start with contention
leave me to roam
i know i can't win them all

don't dole out prescription
though i'm growing old
i'm resting on chaos for something i can be sure of

drifting
letting go

there's chance on the horizon i cannot compute
the destination has no rhyme or reason to hurry
if i end up alone that's what time wanted
yesterday's not for revision

fighting
breaking hold

drowning gently
calm
fearless
peace of mind
breathing softly
free
without a care in the world

drowning gently
calm
fearless
peace of mind
breathing softly
free
without a care in the world
clear of harm

don't start with contention
leave me to roam
i know i can't win them all
Track Name: WILDLIFE
place me out with the wildlife
i wanna dance on the earth
let me see past the rooftops
let me experience rebirth
yeah and I know just what I'm gonna do
create some distance with my peers
unlearn everything that was learned
zero's the sum of all my years

let the self die out

saw you waiting at the station
force your weight onto the train
saw your children getting pushed and pulled
and then I saw you look away
yeah and I know just where you're going to
at the mercy of your sofa
a little wine in the evening time
gagged and bound to the quota

spread and then remount

let the self die out
let the self die out
let the self die out
let the self die out

etc
Track Name: THE SEASONS
breath like butter
smooth as cream
flushed and blushing
live porcelain
i saw the halo
welcomed the light
shocked by desire i held you tight
i smelt the seasons on your skin
we formed a planet
yang and yin

arms entangled
bodies chained
bodies asking to be enslaved
craving new life
waiting to feed
sucking poison from where we bleed
kiss it better
good as new
what was fallow now in bloom
kiss it better
good as new
what was fallow now in bloom

frightened by the glow but like a laser you could see me beaming
i could taste the molten snow

softly

in your embrace i was your son
in protection
off the run
haunting spectres found their peace
granted silence
let me sleep
drenched in oil
free from rust
something precious beneath the dust
drenched in oil
free from rust
something precious beneath the dust

frightened by the glow but like a laser you could see me beaming
i could taste the molten snow

do it

frightened by the glow but like a laser you could see me beaming
i could taste the molten snow

nothing in arrears and nothing to be owed
all the seasons ours to hold
Track Name: CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
no one taught him how to love
so he turns and he gives the cold shoulder
throwing his fist into the air
pointing his finger like a dagger
will this state ever improve
you're like a cat on a hot tin roof
stubborn enough to carry on
though your heart may be broken your conviction is strong

feels like the story of your life
will you be like your mother and your father
you're biting your nails down to the bone
while his mouth is swimming through the gutter
all your ends are fraying loose
you're like a cat on a hot tin roof
how long til the shells buckle and crack
closely watching your step trying to cover your tracks

material apologies can't keep you warm in the morning
flowers chocolates jewellery can't substitute affection
but he stares out the window
into a place you wish could be your soul

is this the boy you knew
were you up in the clouds cherry picking
angels softening the light
head over heels for prince charming
but he's locked without a key
protecting the book you'll never read
why is he hiding from the view of this loving cat on a hot tin roof

cat on a hot tin roof
cat on a hot tin roof

etc
Track Name: EASE UP
you always look so afraid
you always look so ashamed
who gives a damn what they say
who gives a damn what they say

why don't you ease up
ease up
ease up
ease up

and put your knees up
knees up
knees up
knees up

c'mon

you're always getting uptight
as if you just had a fright
and now you can't sleep at night
it's taking all of your might

you'd better ease up
ease up
ease up
ease up

and have a knees up
knees up
knees up
knees up

c'mon

why don't you ease up
ease up
ease up
ease up

and put your knees up
knees up
knees up
knees up

you'd better ease up
ease up
ease up
ease up

and have a knees up
knees up
knees up
knees up
