Track Name: EVEN IF THERE'S A SPARK
sometimes you don't know
right or wrong
is it burning out?
is it burning out?
even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long

sometimes you won't hear
what was said
(what was said?)
were you playing up?
were you acting out?
even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long

the seeds you sew must surely grow
and surely you must smile
for love divine
for woes unkind
for public show
for pantomime

i wanted planets to collide

even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long

even, even, even if we shine
even, even, even if we shine
even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long

burn me, burn me,
grill me till I'm dizzy
burn me, burn me,
grill me till i'm dizzy
burn me, burn me,
carbon life in ecstasy
burn me, burn me, burn me

were you playing up?
were you acting out?
even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long
even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long
even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long
even if there's a spark then a light...
it won't be long
Track Name: PACK ANIMAL
cover up your eyes
'cause you live
but you're dying
change the subject
find a cause
life affirmed
documented
a daughter called charity
and your son?
well he can't sleep in her room
now he's packing a gun
god forbid
pacifists save the children

life's a gift when you're top of the food chain
on the left, on the right
you can't stand to be alone
you're a pack animal
your car has two eyes, mouth and a nose

bake a cake
raise a toast to survival
disguise your erection with a beard
euphemise for a function
your wife's on the payroll getting spayed
don't the buddhists have it made?
oh you drink from a mug
secular
like a kid playing dress up

life's a gift when you're top of the food chain
on the left, on the right
you can't stand to be alone
you're a pack animal
your car has two eyes, mouth and a nose

life's a gift when you're top of the food chain
on the left, on the right
you can't stand to be alone
you're a pack animal
your car has two eyes, mouth and a nose
Track Name: ONE OF THE CEASED
i stay up most nights if that makes a difference
sleep through the day, some would call that a privilege
it's hard work for some, that doesn't surprise me
i can't decide and then i don't get by
there's more than a few who just like getting laid
passing the time to wait for the big day
i know that i could but that's not appealing
i'm thinking too much so i want to be...

one of the ceased
but i know
it takes action to decline
one of the ceased
soon to find
that i'm the next in line

money to spend, i'll spend it on something
i don't really work and then i'm not certain
i think that i should, the thought ain't surprising
i'd like to leave and then i'm undermined
down on myself, it's hard to get out of it
but then again i should get out of bed
people i like, that i would share with
i tend to evade so i want to be...

one of the ceased
but i know
it takes action to decline
one of the ceased
soon to find
that i'm the next in line

one of the ceased
but i know
it takes effect to decline
one of the ceased
soon to find
that i'm the next in line

i stay up most nights if that makes a difference
sleep through the day, some would call that a privilege
it's hard work for some, that doesn't surprise me
i can't decide and then i don't get by
there's more than a few who just like getting laid
passing the time to wait for the big day
i know that i could but that's not appealing
i'm thinking too much so i want to be...

Track Name: CRITTERS
fragmented order drives you to abstraction
dragging your heels through the gravel
stuck in the cutting room watching the same scene
focus pulled into a whirlpool

critters

something that makes an incision
sharp without breaking the skin
clawing away at cognition
methodically burrowing in

critters

you left your back torn out on the rocks
you left your back torn out on the rocks
soon you did itch when the hole started closing
soon you did miss the familiar feeling

oh being hollow
felt somewhat soothing
but that which was missing longed for retrieving

critters
Track Name: THE SHINING
breaking plates
kicking through doors
effing, blinding,
shaking the floor
the lid is rattling

piping hot with steam
clogging up the cogs of the machine

breaking plates
kicking through doors
effing, blinding,
shaking the floor
the rocket just about to launch

spewing putrid fuel
and the ghouls in cahoots with gargoyles

beelzebub bringing blood to the boil

breaking plates
kicking through doors
effing, blinding,
shaking the floor
the lid is rattling
(hee hee hee, hoo hoo hoo, ha ha ha)

piping hot with steam
clogging the machine
(hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo)

breaking plates
kicking through doors
effing, blinding,
shaking the floor
the rocket just about to launch
(hoo hoo hoo, hee hee hee, ha ha ha)

spewing putrid fuel
and the ghouls in cahoots with gargoyles
(ha ha ha ha ha ha)

beelzebub bringing blood to the boil

breaking plates
kicking through doors
effing, blinding,
shaking the floor
the lid is rattling

piping hot with steam
clogging the machine

breaking plates
kicking through doors
effing, blinding,
shaking the floor
the rocket just about to launch

spewing putrid fuel
and the ghouls in cahoots with gargoyles

beelzebub bringing blood to the boil
oh-oh
beelzebub bringing blood to the boil
Track Name: ANOTHER WAVE
pardon my manners but you know i've gotta run
you're talking small when my life ain't close to done
another wave's coming along
and i'm feeling swell

drinking your coffee telling tales of days long gone
pardon my manners but you know i've gotta run
another wave's coming along
and i'm feeling swell

yeah i'm feeling swell
yeah i'm feeling swell
and the rollercoaster stops for a ne'er do well

there's another wave coming along
there's another wave coming along
there's another wave coming along
there's another wave coming along
Track Name: I'M LEAVING HOME
soon
i'm going to be free
i'm leaving home

no convolutions, nothing to resolve
and no one to throw me off track

i'm approaching my departure
there's not a monkey in sight
no scissors in my back

i'm feeling defiant
i've got an inkling that life is gonna cut me some slack

i'd been relying on fools gold for my means
i turned into a fraud

there was coal in christmas wrapping
my nose was so long that i thought i was made of wood

a brand new dwelling with room for redemption
and space to rekindle my soul

soon
I'm going to be free
I'm leaving home

pack my bags, have a car boot sale
comb my hair and cut my nails
yeah the washing's spun and the tiles did gleam
i felt something quite surreal
i felt a joy i never thought i'd feel

soon
I'm going to be free
I'm leaving home

soon
I'm going to be free
I'm leaving home
Track Name: COME THE WINTER
gonna call in sick and buy some time
oh-oh
come the winter

there'll be no alcohol, no more getting high
oh-oh
come the winter

roman candles will be touching the sky
oh-oh
come the winter

catherine wheels are gonna spin in my eyes
oh-oh
come the winter

i'll be delayed but i'm not gonna breathe
carbon monoxide
dozing by the fire

i might be driving but i'm gonna survive
oh-oh
come the winter

that pesky snow consumes the ground
the city stops and it makes a new sound
i'll feel benign
i'll feel serene
i'll close my eyes as the salt trucks shriek

i'll be delayed but i'm not gonna breathe
carbon monoxide
dozing by the fire

i might be driving but i'm gonna survive
oh-oh
come the winter

i'll jump the train and watch the ghosts form a queue
oh-oh
come the winter

i'll be living clean enjoying the view
oh-oh
come the winter
come the winter
come the winter
Track Name: TURN
in seclusion with self judgement
tunnel vision to confinement

watch the clock
tempting fate
to an ending

questions answered with more questions
liquid concrete, wet foundations

take a dive
choose to pass
silent goodbyes

could the tides turn me around
might the moon turn me around
seeds of time turn me around

never forming, keeping distant
hiding anger from an outlet

playing dumb
feigning calm
undercover

could the tides turn me around
might the moon turn me around
seeds of time turn me around
here comes love turn me around

could the tides turn me around
might the moon turn me around
seeds of time turn me around
here comes love turn me around
turn me around
oh-oh-oh

could the tides turn me around
might the moon turn me around
seeds of time turn me around
here comes love...

(could the tides turn me around)
(might the moon turn me around)
(seeds of time turn me around)
(here comes love turn me around)

(could the tides turn me around)
(might the moon turn me around)
(seeds of time turn me around)
(here comes love turn me around)
