Track Name: high wire walking
high wire walking summer sun
she remembers days when we were young
darkened rooms and blackened skies
I can't take these lies

frozen lows and blazing highs
nescafe and selfish lies
it's not a trial that you can run
it's not a day that was supposed to come
Track Name: she's not you
hiding my eyes
from a splintering sun
i turned around
the summer had gone
shading your eyes
from a fracturing sun
god only knows
what we have become

she's not you
she's just an echo of
someone i used to know
someplace, some time ago

where did you go
in those darkest of nights
a world i don't know
missed your insights
i can't escape
these guilt ridden dreams
none of this truth
is all that it seems

mistakes i can't explain
call me by name
repeat again
days go
so slow
Track Name: you really let me down this time
your shoes are slipping on sycamore leaves
gave up wondering what happened to you

you really let me down this time
there's not much more to say
it's proof that i can't read your mind
i'ts best you walk away

your shoes are slipping on sycamore leaves
the rain is coming down in sheets
you look at me in disbelief
i guess i'ts time that i should leave

out the corner of my eye
a blonde girl is saluting a lone magpie

you really let me down this time
there's not much more to say
it's proof that i can't read your mind
i'ts best you walk away

gave up wondering what happened to you
the person you were disappeared from my view
under the radar and into the black
out on the edge with no way back
Track Name: kill the black dog
so welcome back to this
view from the precipice
it's not the hurt that does the damage
it's the hope that causes carnage
the black dog's waiting
at the end of the hall
if i could i would
kill the black dog for once and for all

i know this place
i know it's face
been here too many times
and it's disgrace
will leave no trace
in the space between the lines
resolve within
dissipates again
i'm holding on as best i can
did i become a burden
to past that is uncertain
and a future i don't understand?
Track Name: freefall
caffeine and citalopram
the contradiction's getting out of hand
cue joy division, strike up the band
but i don't think that you understand

there's no way around it
this life is in freefall
expectations grounded
no respite at all

just another decimated town
on the verge of breaking down
tomorrow's just another day
yesterday was the same way

there's no way around it
this life is in freefall
expectations grounded
no respite at all

everything round here
is either dying or decayed
you're hellbent on wrecking
everything we made
as you twist the knife you say
the pain will make it better
as you twist the knife
you say we're all in this together

there's no way around it
this life is in freefall
expectations grounded
no respite at all
Track Name: serenity
so you can fake everything
and i'm the one believing
your airbrushed reality
i know you're playing games with me
but i don't have the wherewithal
to extricate myself at all
my masochistic tendencies
exert their ugly hold on me

can't you see
i know there's something wrong with me
you really got some hold on me
i can see
through the fake sincerity
your drug fuelled serenity

you claimed that you believed in love
and not the superficial stuff
you reeled me out and reeled me in
i can't escape this game
i wish that i could let this be
and face my own hypocrisy
but you're the charismatic one
it's hard to leave and not return

can't you see
i know there's something wrong with me
you really got some hold on me
i can see
through the fake sincerity
your drug fuelled serenity

all your acolytes are swimming
against the tide just to see
just to catch one glimpse of you
dressed up in your finery

can't you see
i know there's something wrong with me
you really got some hold on me
i can see
through the fake sincerity
your drug fuelled serenity
Track Name: i know your worth
how on earth is your faith unshaken?
please don't do this alone
in this place, god forskaken
but you still see see the road home

i will tell you this
i will know your worth
till the last day on earth

a sea of faces
burnt out and hollow
don't know how you got here
there's not a path to follow
might be time to disappear

here we are on the edge of nowhere
stuck in the rain and the snow
don't you wish that you were somewhere
I think it's time to go
Track Name: lennon's singing help!
can you remember
summers infinite?
all things were possible
i was okay with it
and everything was "out of sight"

lennon's singing help! on the radio
you always said it was your theme tune
but i don't think so
and when i felt condemned
to live this life in shadow
you dragged me back into the light
you're the strongest person that i know

it's 2 a.m. and it's raining again
i wish i could go back to when
everything was black and white
Track Name: you're abiding, i'm decaying
you're abiding
i'm decaying
it's your truths
that i'm betraying
you know the joke
you know the punchline
is this really real?
or is it all in my mind?

you succumb to
the power and glory
all these things are
transistory
can't find a preacher
to forgive my sins
and i don't know
where the future begins

i don't think
that i can work this out
i can't escape the doubt
you say virtue is it's own reward
but it just seems too absurd
i don't think i can be
a better version of me
i don't think i can be
a better version of me

the battery's dead
the walls are closing in
the radio's dead
there's something under my skin
stormy monday
reliving these sins
and i don't know
where this begins
Track Name: hospital car park 2 a.m.
ambient instrumental
