Track Name: Last Chance to See
The sun is here and it's here to stay
How can we fight when all we've got is hell to pay?
You're a blushing bride but the end's in sight
One hundred thousand strong, three long years rolling on
'god help us' till then

The sun is up again, so we feed and sell away
All our sickles and dot displays, temporary thoughts to blame, we're sick again
Like statues painting, sweating stories again
Heatwave, again
Look at the sight of you, running in spite of it
God please- fuck it, we're hopeless!

I'm only
We're only
I'm only

As the wind sweeps through us
As the wind sweeps through us
Last chance to see

And if you see what everybody sees
We'll be singing and sighing
Falling and fighting all the same

I'm only
We're only

As the wind sweeps through us
As the wind sweeps through us
Last chance to see
Last chance to see
Track Name: Báisteach
Rain
and a heavy heart
Flowing over my head
Floating over

My love
Wrapped in water
My love

You and me
[Fearthainn]
Ground and tree
[Báisteach]
Hold softly and stay

Rain
and a heavy heart
Floating above my head
Floating above

Inter-omniversal
Wrapped in

You
[Fearthainn]
Follow me
[Báisteach]
And talk softly
Track Name: City
In stone
On the throne of all
Ancient rulers overthrown

You told a lie and told it loud
Told it proud
And through a crowded sale
A shroud, a veil

Half-truth on your suit
A badge, a truce
For things to change
And stay the same

The fight in its sight
The stones breathe life
And speak

You told a lie and told it loud
Told it proud
And through the smoke inhaled
The crowd, the veil

Without a name
Nobody left to blame
A city unchained

Without shame
Nobody left to name
A city unchanged
Track Name: Eyes to the Sun
See my
Mind's eye
Be mine
Eyes to the sun

Right from the start
Time laying out
You and my heart
Eyes to the sun

I feel the same
It's not going to change
Why we hurt

Hear me
See me
My eyes are open
To burn through the sun

But it feels the same
It's not going to change
We all will change

We are children
To eternity
Eternity

What are you saying?
In all of the chaos
You are at the centre
The only piece of order
The only part that's not a mess
The only piece of order

I feel the same
It's not going to change
Why we hurt

Eyes to the sun
Track Name: 2020
Taking water from the tree
Draining blood on evergreen
We're painting circles in the dust
As we hurt

See what you want to see
Be what you want to be
See what you want to see
Be wherever you want to be

See what you want to see
Be what you want to be
Leave if you want to leave
See who you want to see

You walk until you talk
And you talk until you hurt
We're carving patterns in the rust

As we hurt
And we hurt
God I hurt

See what you want to see
Be what you want to be
See what you want to see
Be wherever you want to be

See what you want to see
Be what you want to be
Leave if you want to leave
See what you want to see

I can't see

I never saw until the fall
We never fought until the war
Hindsight's 20/20

You walk until you talk
And you talk until you hurt
And everything you say
Would be void on a contract

Just please let me stay here
Track Name: Hyperspace
Lily-white pictures of love
Shining on
Shining on

Little pictures of love
Shining on
Shining on

It's enough
What little knowledge is keeping face
Keeping place and keeping time
It's enough

Shine on, shine on
Shine on today
Strong minds won't fold and regret

Lily-white pictures of love
Shining on
Shining on

Painting circles in hyperspace
Holding place and waiting
Until I am - until I'm ready

To climb on, climb on
Shine on today
I'm not blind
I am fine

Forgive and forget
Forgive and forget
Track Name: Cannonball
Alone in a garden
Sinking a seed
I'd do almost anything

Dark on the corner
and desperate to please
Slipping off the wall

Alone in a garden

Slipping into panic
Insult to injury
Into panic

All eyes on the ceiling
and dust on the floor
We're drinking a cannonball

Asleep in a garden
Arrested, asleep
Waiting for air

Asleep in a garden

Slipping into panic
Insult to injury
Into panic

Slipping off the wall

Into panic
Insult to injury
Into panic
Track Name: Buffalo
Symphonies of change
like butterflies swarm
We've never seen anything
but life as we know it

Sing a crown upon our heads
and pray our children might return

It's like buffaloes caught the blame
Note their continuing absence
Crown, hall and king gone insane
but wheels keep turning

Sing a crown upon your heads
We know our fear, ours to burn
Walls of stone and halls of chrome
We make our children

Symphonies of change
like a buffalo swarm
We've never seen anything
but life as we know it

Sing a crown upon our heads
We know our fear, ours to burn
Build our home and wait no more
We are our children
Track Name: Disaster
We are all waiting for you now
We are waiting
While you're putting your shoes on 
Before 'disaster'

We fall
With all our luck, we fall deeper again
And rise
Hereafter
Track Name: Portrait of the Sleep Deprived
I've seen all I can see
All the distractions
Passions and loose ends
till I'm back in fashion

I'd know
I'd know if you'd confide in me
Confide in me
So I, I-

An eye for an eye
The whole world is blind
And I can't fly

You've seen every fight
every blight on an otherwise perfect melody
Every little bite I take from everyone

And I'd know it
I'd know if you'd confide in me
Confide in me
So an eye- an eye for an eye

The whole world is blind
And I can't fly anymore
The whole world is blind
And I- I can't fly anymore

And I can't hide
No, I-
No, I-
And, I...
Track Name: Taxis Rule the Streets of Brisbane
The lights of the highway
Form solid rock and tree soil
These flickering lines, free-form
Wander home

Everyone is out of sight
And taxis rule the streets tonight
All of these flickered lights
Lead us home

You don't know what you're doing
No you don't know what you're doing
No one knows what they're doing
Tonight

Tonight

Softly through the streets paved with
Electric lines, through our eyes
Every sparking motorcade
Will set us through

You don't know what you're doing
No you don't know what you're doing
No one knows what they're doing
Tonight

In street light
Tonight
Track Name: Morningbird
So the morningbird wakes beneath my feet, beneath my wings
Light holds its tongue
Not too long till we're open
Till we're open

Waking shoulders reach and sigh a new waking world

I fell on a mountain range, a cushioned weight
I am home
Light holds its breath over a fabricated sleep
Not so long since it started

Waking arms fall on arms, we are breathing as one

Until it's time to begin again
Now it's time to begin
Words fall on words but I'm ready to begin again

Until it's time to begin again
Now I'm ready to begin
Words fall on words but I'm ready to begin again
To begin again

I am home.
