Track Name: Perfect Health
a picture of me and you
hanging above the fireplace
what a good situation
we negotiate
trying to get ahead

a picture of modern youth
hanging out in the old folks home
it will seem less important
than the circumference
of my wedding ring

no
you never find it easy
theres no way out of this now
cause you're gone

and no
i never it easy
but i know we can defeat it

you found your purpose
i can feel it
even though it hurts


a picture of perfect health
hanging out for a cigarette
you could pick up a day job
greeting strangers
from a hospital bed

a picture of me and you
hanging above the fireplace
what a good situation
we negotiate
trying to get ahead

you found your purpose
i can feel it
even though it hurts

you found your purpose
i can see you
even though it hurts
Track Name: She Knows
burn your bridges
take no prisoners
she's got her eyes on you

she knows
she's the only one who knows
she keeps her secret safe
she's not the only one

but she knows
she's the only one who does
even though she sets me free
takes all her effort
like beating on a wall
there'll never be a reward

part of me just wants you to know
that i'm bored out of my tree now
but the other part just wants you to see
that to call on you for a favor
gives me hope, hope, hope for free

she knows
she's the only one who does
anything for free
she's been doing it all her life

she knows
she's the only one who does
price without the cost
keep doing it all for

me and my monsters
there'll never be a reward

part of me just wants you to know
that i'm bored out of my tree now
but the other part just wants you to see
that to call on you for a favor
gives me hope, hope, hope for free
Track Name: Sleep Forever
i think im gonna go to bed
i think im gonna sleep forever
on a cold floor waiting

don't think im gonna get up early
and no i wont make the most of the day
its just bullshit timing

its a shame i have to go home early
its a shame i have to be here at all
when you're stuck in a dream
you've got no where to be
and the voice in your head
just says go back to sleep

i think im gonna go to bed
i think im gonna sleep forever
on a cold floor waiting

don't think im gonna get up early
and no i wont make the most of the day
in my golden slumber

its a shame i have to go home early
its a shame i have to be here at all
when you're stuck in a dream
you've got no energy
and the voice in my head
just says go back to sleep

hey
i don't wanna think about it
no
i don't wanna sleep forever
no
i don't wanna feel anything
anymore
Track Name: Stop & Start Again
so used to coming last
every other day
build things to break them all
thats his vocation

price fixed adventures of anybodys heart
come at such a cost the odds are all stacked against you

stop
and start again

far is the furthest i've ever been before
take me home don't let me go
thats my vocation

hope is what they give when they've got nothing else to take
thats my vocation

stop
and start again
Track Name: Loneliness For Free
lets go for a ride
to a far away city
we could do it real cheap
stay forever
no chance to complain
so come on were leaving
so say your goodbyes we'll be gone forever

say that you need me
say that you want me yeah
or say that you're leaving say that you're leaving

you get your loneliness for free
keep your eyes fixed on the road
cause if you don't
you'll be a broken mess on the floor

your chance to complain
is already over
so say your goodbyes
we'll be gone forever

say that you need me
say that you want me yeah
or say that you're leaving say that you're leaving

you get your loneliness for free
keep your eyes fixed on the road
cause if you don't
you'll be a broken mess on the floor

you get your loneliness for free
keep your eyes fixed on the road
cause if you don't
you'll end up broken missing the point

you get your loneliness from me
keep your eyes fixed on the road
cause if you don't
you'll end up broken missing the point
Track Name: Disappear Into The Day
the sun goes down
the world spins round
its time for us
to sleep somehow
we've been up all night
we broke our minds
but have no fear
we have no care
i say goodbye
for now i go
to sleep for sure
to wake who knows
the sun comes up
as you to and fro
and the fears i had
disappear into the day

don't you know your boyfriend has no life
"its alright if you want me to ill keep on crying over you"

don't have a breakdown
nobody knows but me
don't ever comedown
everyone knows but you

everyone knows
its over now
so go to sleep
you'll find a way
to close your eyes
its over now
so go to sleep
you'll find a way
to close your eyes
Track Name: Lost In The Moment She'd Lost
my darling oh darling confident steps
move over the surface of detailed regrets
making dust out of reason
she stares a little longer than she ought to

darling oh darling confident steps
takes less than a moment to untangle the mess
of the glimpse of a shadow
or a thought without meaning you ought to tell anyone

she saw it out of the corner of her eye
and without wanting to decide if she would
cry or forget about
that just moments ago
she was lost in moment
she'd lost

darling oh darling confident steps
lets shake up the shaken and sleep without rest
be mindful of opinions
and lets stay a little longer than we ought to
lets stay
the rest of this night forever

she saw it out of the corner of her eye
and without wanting to decide if she would
cry or forget about
that just moments ago
she was lost in moment
she'd lost
Track Name: Cry If You Want To
Say the word and ill be ok
Say nothing and I may as well keep my heart locked up
In a cabin with the windows bolted shut
No running water with the heater stuck on
Running over all the dos and don’ts till the money runs dry we forget about this love
I’m not romantic, I’m pathetic, and I’m an expert at not getting the job done
Still, I think no matter what we say
To each other in the middle of an argument oh
It’s still a good ship, to be sailing
No captain, no sails
Why don’t we do it like we did before
Drink ourselves stupid and be happy on the farm
Because I have a short memory
Kicking dust off a photo of a better me

Just try and forget about it
It means nothing to you

Oh no, you don’t know why
You feel so bad you don’t know what to do
You don’t know why you know
You feel so bad and lonely, you don’t what to do

You can
Cry if you want to
It don’t matter to me
Ill be there for you

So you can
Cry if you want to
It don’t matter to me
Cause ill be there for you
Track Name: Early Morning
early morning
i awake
in the hope that something
doesn't break

cause every morning
i awake
in the hope that something
didn't break

you said we be here forever
instead you say we can never
go back and know when we started
cause going back theres always something wrong
something wrong something wrong
yeah

dig a hole
big enough
and start again
if we dig a hole
big enough
we can start again
again

every morning
i await
Track Name: Before It All Falls Apart
Before it all falls apart

She wont listen
he wont understand
worn out record
same old song

and no one sees that she is really on her own
you tell yourself you would do anything
before it all falls apart

scared of dreaming
something different
and then without warning
you're invisible

no one sees that she is really on her own
you tell yourself you would do anything
before it all falls apart
then it all falls apart

we tell ourselves that things will never get better
and we talk about how we never change
like falling down with a long long way to go

don't you ever let it go
Track Name: I Took A Train
I took a train
Yeah I took a train
To the edge
Of the wharf
I sat on down
And started to sing
I sang the chorus
I sang these words

I want to hold you baby
I want to hold you
In the morning
In the night

So I took a train
Yeah I took a train
To the edge
Of the earth
I saw a cloud
Against the wind
It was going home

I want to hold you baby
I wanna hold you
In the morning
In the night

Sleeping on a bed of concrete
Clouds not people watching
Seashells, birdshit and painted skies
