Track Name: Cells
the sand falls slowly through the hourglass
time's never on my side
i want to scream for it to stop but i am powerless
to change what's going on inside

the cells they are dividing
with every single breath
every pulsing heartbeat
takes me closer to my death

i am but perched upon the precipice
uncomfortable inclined
and though I cannot see the benefit
I try to think to clear my mind

and yes i'll grow another skin
another thin facade to hold my body in
now i'm searching for a twin
something to bring some meaning and some discipline
Track Name: Burn It To The Ground
the party's over and the day is near
we're turning over all the tables here
bodies shaking in the bitter wind
wishing always for a thicker skin

if it must go down, let's burn it to the ground
at least there'll be fireworks
all the days and nights are gone without a figure
now you know just why it hurts

we have to leave before the rot sets in
hide away all of the empty gin bottles
paint right over marks upon the wall
i didn't know how far we had to fall
Track Name: On My Mind
when i was on the kitchen floor
you were first at my front door
you have been so kind to me

be careful you would always say
as i went out to face the day
you have been so kind to me

write to me when i'm alone
because i fear the telephone
you have been so kind to me

drawing tattoos on our hands
plotting on a map our plans
this could've been the life for me

when you're here in the night and we can't help but fight
if you're wrong or right you know i haven't got the time
still you're always on my mind

message tone at 4am
just saying that you need a friend
you always could rely on me

i didn't want to take the blame
but i covered for you all the same
you always could rely on me

i never told your mum and dad
i couldn't bear to see them sad
you always could rely on me

sneaking round and playing games
always trying to hide your shame
you only could confide in me
Track Name: Save Our Souls
i was smiling having fun
now what have i done?
there's poison in my mouth again

i am losing self-control
asleep on my patrol
i'm beginning to doubt my friends

there'll be no sleep for me
no sweet dreams
in this psychotropic reverie

figures moving through the dark
everywhere they make their mark
in the shadow of this revelry

wires hanging from the walls
no-one left to make the call
and save us from the mess we made

dust gathers on the floor
now we can be sure
there's nobody who could have been saved

save our souls
please save our souls
Track Name: Blood & Tears
you'll take our land, you'll take our homes
you'll fake our stories and cast them in stone
you'll take our fears and make us an enemy
when we've disappeared you'll wipe out our memory

and the only lasting point of view
is the wool before our eyes
that frames the lucky few
who know the reason why
the shutter's in the shade
but the film is on the screen
where nothing is explained
we don't know what it means

but you can't stop us from walking
from our houses and homes
you can't stop us from fighting
with our flesh and our bones
you can't stop us from feeling
all the love and the fear
we'll keep on walking
through the blood and the tears
Track Name: Mirrors & Lenses
we heading for the end of the evening
and my conscience tells me now i should be sleeping
but all thoughts of leaving now are fleeting
because i know inside there's a thousand hearts still beating

reflected it's blinding my senses
projected through mirrors and lenses
the motion is staggered by strobe light
as i seek some refuge from the cold and the dark night

i've finally found a place i can be truthful
no subtlety of meaning here is useful
the purest form of human interaction
playing on my own dissatisfaction
Track Name: Oil & Water
face in the crowd
too loud to be heard
afraid of the sound
and the power of the word
this street is for you
and it's true, we defy
blood is our fear
and the fear will divide

like birds of a feather
we'd stick together
they had no doubt
but you push us together
and like oil and water
we separate out

escape from a place
where grace is denied
adapt to the pace
and race to confide
sell to who'll buy
and try to get by
with weight in your name
and blame on your side
Track Name: Space To Breathe
i'm leaving town in the morning
heading for something new
much further north where the days are shorter
by the skies are blue

i was scared to go the distance
much more than i had in mind
but some respite from this madness
is what i seek to find

i can't escape that all my friends
will make new friends and i will too
but nothing can replace what we've done together
what we've been through

you're asking me the question, why I have to leave?
this city was once my saviour, now it's my enslaver

i need some space to breathe
