Track Name: Headlights
Every day I’ll try to forget
What you said and all you did
But not today
Today’s not going away
Today you comfort me

Comfort me

It’s been a long time
To give up now and pack on home
But it’s gonna be ok
Cause we’re better than this, I’m better than this, I’m better

‘Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh how I wish he’d go away’

All your shaking followers say
How important you were
How integral you are
Not one relaxed or comfortable

The principle saboteur
The scented lure
I don’t trust a man
Who’d sell your soul for a cheap fistful of dollars

Don’t you comfort me

It’s been a long time
To give up now and pack on home
But it’s gonna be ok
Cause we’re better than this, we're better than this, we're better than this, I’m better than this, I'm better

But still we fight
The crowd of blind and ignorant
With your ancient face hung on the wall
In our way

You’re standing in my headlights
You’re standing

And I’m better than this
I’m better than this, I’m better
Track Name: Lucky Country
I work so hard, thinking big, talking loud
Just for it to break me down
I wake up every day with the word on my breath
There’s always someone pushing it out

I know it’s you

The kids who swam drowned a thousand miles
He dressed in razor wires and shame
You’re standing in a wall against their rights
Since you cast a ballot in his name

They’re trying to bury me and my country
We took away children
We throw away children
Some lucky country

Watches
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When hate turns men into killers

We all watch
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When you point your finger at me

Cause I'm not your enemy

A faded man that I met on the street
Says he’s searching for his people
Born in a cage, made of skin and talk
He's left a broken man, a stolen man

We tried to bury him and his country
We took away children
Without a sound we bury them
Some lucky country

Watches
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When hate turns men into killers

We all watch
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When you point your finger at me

Cause I’m not your enemy

I'd hope
I’ve hoped for a long time
You'd choke on it like me

They’re trying to bury me and my country
Who took away children
Who throw away children

You’re trying to bury me and my country
You take away children
You fuck away children

You’re trying to bury me and my country
You take away children
You throw away children

You’re trying to bury me and my country
You take away children
You fuck away children

Hell, I’m not you’re enemy

I'm not your enemy *
I'm not your enemy
*You are my enemy
You are my enemy

Some lucky country
Track Name: Klingon
Everybody's waiting for some moment to signal an end
Some moment of closure, some moment to rest
Waiting for some fool to clean up the spill
A door to salvation, waiting for the kill

What's left, you and me
Left unspoken, I'm ready for the thrill
To take up, and leave standing still
I want to be free

One night a man came, leaving dust and a broken mill
Two words he spoke to me, a vision for mouths to fill
He had no occupation, no purse nor bag nor pill
Three men more than a rat in the doorway, leading us
Leading us out to war

What's left, you and me
Right not worth asking about, I'm ready for the kill
So I'll take up, and leave standing still
I want to be free

See they're asking
See they're waiting
No more waiting
No more waiting

Stand.
Stand.

What's left, you and me
None of us spoken for, but ready for the thrill
To take up, and leave standing still
You are all free
Track Name: In my Place
I’m feeling lost and my friend says it’s only eleven
Waiting for something
Cuts deepen and mirrors talk as things get worse
And we wait till we’re sober to think straight and apologise

And I just don’t understand
How love can fade like that

Hold my fate
In my place
In my place

Hold that face
In my place
In my place

We sit and we think on the usual excuses
We sit and we drink and we wonder what all the fuss is about
Well I’m not gonna live like that
When people know they can change everything

I just don’t understand
How love can fade like that

Hold my fate
In my place
In my place

Hold that face
In my place
In my place

Let me speak

I just don’t understand
I just don’t understand
How love can fade
How love can change
How love can fade like that
Just like that
Just like that

Hold my fate
In my place
In my place

Hold that face
In my place
In my place

No.
Track Name: Close to Me
I want to be weightless
To clear this ground and see this
Without my head down

I swim
I float, breathing patience
Wading, ascending
So high I just see where I am

Some thoughts to swim today
It's not much simpler upside down

But it's good to see you
I think it's good to see you
I guess it's good to see you
My friend

I want to be shameless
So then I could feel this
With my eyes closed

But it’s good to see you
I think it’s good to see you
I guess it’s good to see you
It’s good to see you

My friend
 
You're so close
So close to me
Cause you’re here
And I’m here
And you’re close
You're close to me
Close to me
Track Name: Give
Sun
Give a little light
a little love
Give back

Sun
Give a little light
a little love
Give back

It's not
It's not worth it
Is it?

Failing apathy
I will walk
Walking new again
And no, I'm not there
I'm not there, yet

A word falls
To choke which war depends on it
An arrow falls
Too close, too close
to give it back

It's not worth it
Define 'worth it'
To find worth in
Define worth in this

Fighting apathy
I will walk
Walking new again
And- no, stop right there

Stop right there
Hold right there
Where I say it's fair
No, we're not there, yet

Give it back
Give it back

It's not enough

Failing apathy
I will walk
Walking new again
And no, we're not there
We're not there yet
Track Name: Echo
As pools in love twirl in circles across the floor
A restless mind dreams of different places
Always thinking
Always feeling

In this echo

As thoughts have echoed throughout many lives
Hearts have lived throughout hearts
But we stand on our own ground
No one can tell you who are except you

Echoed

As cuts in love fall in circles across the wall
A restless heart dreams of different faces
Change

Light
It grips you all around
And dances full of smiles and pain

Love
It blooms and falls in petals on our darkest soils
And we’re afloat in its wake

Fall
A gentle brush of wind as I reach up the kiss the ground
And I’m slowly falling asleep
 
And we all
And we all
And we all
Float on
Track Name: The Optimist
Some define us by where we stand
But who I am and where I am just don’t seem to match right now
And it bothers some people
That who we are and what we do can never be proved
 
And all I’ve seen is time
And all I'll breathe is mine
Mine, oh mine
 
And some define us by what will stay
But all the melodies will fade away
Like your patched-up remedies and plastic knives and your 'little lies'
I’m lost in circles every time I fly
 
And all I’ve seen is time
And all I'll breathe is mine
And all I’ve seen is time
And all I dream is mine
 
Mine, oh mine
 
It’s alright
It’s mine
It's alright
Track Name: Cryo
A smooth plane hides a yellow sky
A golden orb, rising as it falls
Trickling water, a quiet heart
A soft breeze cools a tired mind

A twilight star across a midnight sky
The flowers that comfort our weary eyes
Heal our battlefield

To live without flame, live without wain
All our colours change
Orange to blue and blue to black
All our lives in rain

Live without flame, live without wain
All our colours change
Rain will wake all hearts and minds
As we rise from the ashes

Rise from the ashes
Rise from the ashes
