Track Name: Multiple Trees Witness A Fire
I put it down I put it down to miscommunication
Don't dream too loud, I'll hear from here, disloyal and impatient
Please rest assured, don't cry my dear
We knew we'd never win
We could never change the way we are

And it goes round and round each year it's slightly worse, I'm slightly less prepared
And the rows of trees are blackened from a scorching summer
So I'll give three cheers and hide my fears
I guess that's how it goes

I put it down I put it down to miscommunication
Don't dream too loud, I'll hear from here, disloyal and impatient
Please rest assured, don't cry my dear
We knew we'd never win
We could never change the way we are

From the go this traffic always dragged me down
Dragged me to my knees
Just ignore the hurt, it's red alert, I guess that's how it goes
And I know as the days go by they make me shudder

He sees her initials in the street signs
And they're always taunting, poking, haunting
He berates himself for reading between the lines
It goes on and on and on until she gets back
But the days go like decades and each hour like a year
He's up and he's down, he's not moving my dear
Beautiful sonnets that won't sound good later he know
That desperation is the worst and the worst is yet to come
That the line has worked a solid pace, and he's just been outrun

You brushed aside, you brushed aside my guarded reservations
I looked toward the evening sky and your constant constellations
Your hand on the horizon shows your glory from afar
We could never change the way we are
I put it down I put it down to miscommunication
Don't dream too loud, I'll hear from here, disloyal and impatient
Please rest assured, don't cry my dear
We knew we'd never win
We could never change the way we are
Track Name: Alexander Supertramp
Alexander Supertramp, your problems walked you far from home
You’ll be the music while the music lasts
And when your fortunes fade you’ll find that you are all alone
Know this and know it well I...

Bury your head and farewell the sky
Unseen, unheard, unbelievable
And miles away with tears in my eyes
My life's my own to make

Christopher, your pretty words won’t take me
You’re lost at sea, and I was set to sail
I’m silent now, but words will come and I will wring them out like rain
He’s chasing harder and you’re run run running out of breath

Bury your head and farewell the sky
And miles away with tears in my eyes

If only I could just explain
What it feels to be lost
In this moment

Don’t let me down
It’s time to go
It’s time to go
Don’t let me down
It’s time to go
It’s time to go
Don’t let me down
It’s time to go
It’s time to go
Don’t let me down
It’s time to go
It’s time to go
Don't let me down
Track Name: Revolution? I'm Just Here To Dance
It started off with a prayer
A prayer that meant something
Though it was only ever words
But the hurt didn’t fade away that night
It finished up with a pause
A pause that was bad in the prevailing point of view
What to do when the doomsday romance crashes all around?

Feeding the workers tasty lies
Twenty-four hours through the night
Cos racing rats and fighting cats can only go so long
Will we ever make it home?

I’m calling in a lifeline
For a hole that's taking up my insides
All aboard yeah all aboard the lifeline
It’s coming in the night time
It’s coming in the night time
And I wish they’d all been ready
But instead the day before they washed away
They looked around and said
Said its all ok

Feeding the workers tasty lies
Twenty-four hours through the night
Cos racing rats and fighting cats can only go so long
Will we ever make it home?

I think I’ve got such a long way home
And I don’t think I’ll make it on my own
I think I’ve got such a long way home
And I don’t think I’ll make it on my own
Track Name: Rebellion
Don’t try and tell me it's all the same like you've never gone
Maybe you’ll get there someday
And don’t try to tell me it’s all a game that you’ve played and already won
You’ve been there before and there’s just nothing left

This is not a fairytale
Can you afford to to be wrong this time?
And if you’re getting nervous, it’s probably just as well
This is not a ritual
Habits alone won’t save your soul
And if you’re getting nervous, it’s probably just as well

I wanna end this now
If you would let me try
I wanna show you how
And watch it come to life
If they once found true north
Magnetically
I could roll with the punches and slide with the kicks
That leave me dazed confused
Haphazardly
And if I ever found truth of news too good to keep

This is not a fairytale
Can you afford to to be wrong this time?
And if you’re getting nervous, it’s probably just as well
This is not a ritual
Habits alone won’t save your soul
And if you’re getting nervous, it’s probably just as well

You came down to find me here
All I want to disappear
You came down to find me here
Brushed aside my guilt and fear
Track Name: Windows
Here I am once again lost in the blindness of my reflection
I see you walk outside and the darkness pulls away
These mirrors fade to windows

And when I’m suddenly alone
At any moment I could come undone
Cos my conscience fades
And you can’t wipe the smile off my face

Air up here is thin on my high horse
Other people’s problems mar the ground below
And when the rain falls don’t you know I love to say I told you so
And it’s over
The decline you define as a knot to unwind
And if you can hear me
You might find that it’s just far too far to fall

And when I’m suddenly alone
At any moment I could come undone
Cos my conscience fades
And you can’t wipe the smile off my face
Track Name: Masquerades
Standing on the brink of disaster
Holding hands high
Holding hands high
Raised eyelids dance with the truth now
Floating away
Floating away
Idols of all sorted colours
Tie your eyes shut
Tie your eyes shut
Since you continue to trust in your riches and deeds

Your masquerade won't carry much further
Your beauty fades like a fallen flower

Soft hands drop the paper shield as I
Fight for ground here
Fight for ground here
Tattered robes lie whistling with the wind as I'm
Looking skyward
Looking skyward
Nothing quenching desert thirst why
Do I look here?
Do I look here?
What makes a man's faith run in and out like the tide?

Your masquerade won't carry much further
Your beauty fades like a fallen flower
