Track Name: No Day to Save
In the war of independence that you fought with your parents
The casualties have soured the victories
Now you can do anything you choose
But you wish someone would look after you
At least until it all settles down

Draw a breath to intoxicate
Draw a breath from the souls you hate
Why did you stay did they force your hand?
Or are you too dazed to take a stand?

Soon we'll be raising families of our own
I suppose that there's no need for us to be treated like children
But my adulthood's still in its infancy
And I wish someone would look after me
At least until it's all settled down

And I just can't prepare myself
So I must endeavour again
The women and children saved themselves
So it's me and the broken men
Me and the broken men

With no day left to save
We took a walk outside
Track Name: Steady the light
Don't move it, keep steady
This light will flicker out
Make space and stay ready
Start burning all my doubts

Now you broke another day into tiny little parts
Line them up and call it art
And I'm ready to display but you've stolen my designs
Wasting paper, tracing lines

When you're throwing all the coins
Tripping up the marching bands
Taking time to understand
There's a smile around your face
And a glow inside your heart
Light it up and lead the way back to the start

Now you broke another day into tiny little parts
And you broke another day into tiny little parts

Don't see it below me
When someone showed me
I don't see it below me
When someone showed me
When someone showed me how

Don't move it, keep steady
This light will flicker out, it'll flicker out
Make space and stay ready
Start burning all my doubts
Burning all my doubts
Track Name: Heart Explodes
Watch me in dusk light, iridescent to you
Desaturate into black and white
It'll get better soon

And I'm still the same, I just blunted all my senses
Forgot all that I'd leave behind
The blast of hot air only clouded up the lens
Now there's nothing that I'd magnify

Slow silence settles down into a note that you can hear
Don't break that brittle sound
When your heart explodes into fear

Send me your message, shines a light into view
It wasn't much but when you said this
There was nothing to choose

And I'm still the same I just blunted all my senses
Forgot all that I'd leave behind
The blast of hot air only clouded up the lens
And I just had to open my eyes
Track Name: Yoruba
My slow motion escape stuck in cowardice
A ten hour mistake, trying to persist

I don't know what I'm doing
I don't know what I'm doing here

Solace in hot plastic sends me to the floor
Hard to get past this, but sent in to perform

Send me back to sleep
Knock me out
When I wake at home with only love around
Here's an empty soul
But my hopes are filled with you

Beauty all alone and easy to resist
When every message reminds me what I miss
Track Name: Bound to Fail
Compensate for rainy days
Always bound to fail
You were always bound to fail
Always bound to fail

Losing touch with solid ground
You couldn't get away
No you couldn't get away
Couldn't get away

In the house where you lost all the pieces
The light shone behind you yesterday
No more room left to house all the people
Who couldn't get away
Track Name: Present Company
See my favourite sunrise
Still holding hands
And I’m looking to change my reasons
My hopes and all these strange demands

You can't take them, except this present company
You say I’m hard to please
I don’t want to see them go

I’ll just change the way it’s meant to be
And then I’ll have to leave
I don’t want to face my own company

Noises you make
Now I see what you are
All these days I've been shining lights on faces
To stop the passing cars

And I'm hoping to change this present company
You say I’m hard to please
I don’t want to see them go

I’ll just change the way it’s meant to be
And then I’ll have to leave
I don’t want to face my own company

So I change my reasons and face my own company
I don't want to see you go
Track Name: Philosophy
Time to waste
Pat down hair that's out of place
Straighten up the crease that climbs
Up from shirt to face

Take a rest
Did someone say you look your best
Use the data from your head
Not what's inside your chest

Got to let it settle you down
Turns doctors into clowns

Philosophy can't be based around me
We're in this together, together
Hold on to your beliefs
Keep them clenched in your teeth
We're in this together, together

Bite your tongue
Try to think of words to songs
Calculate the length of time
To get back where you belong

Make a list of all the towns
Where we could settle down
Track Name: We Only Have to Fight
Battles I won with grace and valour
Broken, bruised, seeing two
It doesn’t matter today

We only have to fight
When the atmosphere sucks all our breath
And there’s nothing left to do
Today’s black and blue

Sometimes, they can deceive the faithful
And they’re hounding you
But you’ll pull through and turn the tables today

Today’s black and blue
The sun came out
The sun came out
But today’s black and blue
Track Name: If I Seem Distracted
There's not much to tell you
A half empty showroom
Now they've taken all I know
And these scraps of paper
They won't navigate you
So head off and aim for home

Arms are there to hold you when you land
If I seem distracted just clap your hands

I don't need answers, just the time we have
Take those dreams, get them back
Red and blue flowers
Painted white and black
Take those dreams get them back

My declarations, I just won't retract
Packaged up, get them back

I don't need answers, just the time we have
Take those dreams, get them back
Red and blue flowers
Don't paint them white and black
Take those dreams get them back

You don't need to show me
Track Name: Man-Made
Send myself to sleep
I can see tempers frayed
My nature depletes
All that’s left is man-made

This conflict's getting tired
There’s nothing left
But I can’t let hope retire and take second best

Forced through spinnerets
My senses lost in the air
Try to catch this thread
But I'm finding it hard to care

This conflict's getting tired
There’s nothing left
But I can’t let hope retire and take second best
So I fight to the death

I’m not scared
I’m not scared
I’ve got a heart that’s strong
It’s where I belong

My confidence is rising
They’ve got a king to hail
Now you’ve gone into hiding
And I live to tell the tail

And now I’m falling asleep
