Track Name: Thank You Captain Hindsight
So here’s the best of what I was
And here’s the last of what I want
So who can run on lapse?
From here to kerosene and back
It’s a subtle tact
Cos for once I’m feeling fine
Drink kerosene and laugh
And rejoice in all we left behind

You said, You said, You said you still miss me
I won't, I won't I won't let this mess with my head
I said, I said, I said why don't you just drop
I said why don't you just drop dead?

So here’s my attempt at playing cards
And I’m all alone in crashing cars
We’re still smiling when it’s on
And I can’t be the only one
To save some common sense
For the feelings that I vent
I’m home at last
We drink kerosene and laugh

You said, You said, You said you still miss me
I won't, I won't I won't let this mess with my head
I said, I said, I said why don't you just drop
I said why don't you just drop dead?

You said, You said, You said you still miss me
I won't, I won't I won't let this mess with my head
I said, I said, I said why don't you just drop
I said why don't you just drop dead?
Track Name: Satellite
Long lost friend
Where have you been?
I could write a novel
On things being alright in the end
I'm sick, become an eyesore
In the same breath I'd loose the battle
But win the war
Oh how did it come to this?
I break more than I give
Think of all the sunsets
You never told me different
You only showed me imprints
Of the faces I once cared for,
Oh my hollow heart beats
I guess I’ve already gone this far
I couldn’t say it any faster

Put up with me
Watch me become an addiction
I just want some love
Corrupted radio transmission
From a satellite
That I set alight
I told you
Won't you come back soon?

Panicked on the outside
I'm a lover on the inside
I would trade it all for
A weekend at the seaside
In the things I say and do
And all the places I've been to
Who’s got time for me now?
I only stopped to kiss you
Oh wherever my heart may be
That’s where you'll find me
Think of all the heartbreak
Think of all the mistakes
You know I still drink
Shots in the dark like you
I guess I’ve already gone this far
I couldn’t say it any faster

Put up with me
Watch me become an addiction
I just want some love
Corrupted radio transmission
From a satellite
That I set alight
I told you
Won't you come back soon?

Until “best friend’s” halts all conversation
Would you call me up? Would you throw me away?
Like hugs mid day to save communication
Until making mistakes becomes a desperation
When you walk out on me for someone more
Will you wish you'd said a little less
Than you did before?

Put up with me
Watch me become an addiction
I just want some love
Corrupted radio transmission
From a satellite
That I set alight
I told you
Won't you come back soon?
Track Name: All The Ocean
Things change every now and then
Well whatever happened to the life I led
In my own way I miss the good old days
And the puzzles of people who never stayed
Now watch me touch the morning clouds
Until all the ocean comes pouring down
We'll reach out in the rain for feather coats
And the hats we can wear in our paper boats

Growing up with my head in the sky, my back to the wall and feet in line,
I knew that the day would come in time,
I just thought that I was too young to die,

Too young to die and too old to live,
Too beautiful to keep and too drunk to give,
I've outgrown the way you saw me,
And nowadays I'm far from lonely,
I still live for a life I'll never have,
I want times and people to just hold fast,
We'll reach out in the rain for feather coats,
And the hats we can wear in our paper boats,

Growing up with a wasted youth when you've got nothing to do,
And nothing to loose, and if you choose truth over lies,
Flash forward to 9 years time when we're both hopelessly.
Enslaved in the assembly line,
Track Name: Tequila
Young, tanned, bottle blonde
Got a tattoo on her 16th birthday
describes herself as confident and flirty
no wonder all the boys assume she's dirty

Oh, oh, oh Nancy
you come alive when you're dancing
breaking the hearts of the ravers
ending the night on the pavement

Short skirt, high heels
nothing helps you feel like tequila
the colour of the disco's getting clearer
the boys all try to get a little nearer

Oh, oh, oh Nancy
you come alive when you're dancing
breaking the hearts of the ravers
ending the night on the pavement

Morning, Bright light
Your make up looked better in the strobe light
Your false nails are broken from the cat fight
You're sick of telling everyone you're alright

Oh, oh, oh Nancy
you come alive when you're dancing
breaking the hearts of the ravers
ending the night on the pavement

Lived while you were young
all you ever wanted was a good time
did you find it underneeth the streetlight?
and do you think that this will be the highlight
of your life?

Oh, oh, oh Nancy
you come alive when you're dancing
breaking the hearts of the ravers
ending the night on the pavement
Track Name: Wanderlust
You’re winning hearts on the coconut shy,
But they break as they fall to the grass,
I bathe in water from wishing wells,
And I dance with the ghost’s of my past

Found you on a page in the present tense,
Bound by wanderlust,
You know that dreams are the eighth of our sins,
Far more potent than gluten or lust

Holy Communion,
Make us as one again,
Break open my body,
And drink from my blood,

As my pretences wash off in the rain,
My bones become heavy like sand,
Your bones are hollow; you long to be free,
From the forces you don’t understand

My knuckles are white as I’m pulling you close,
My questions have used up the air,
I’ll go like a pilgrim to your hidden flaws,
And leave my naivety there,

Holy Communion,
Make us as one again,
Break open my body,
And drink from my blood,

Holy Communion,
Make us as one again,
Break open my body,
And drink from my blood,
