Track Name: Cut & Run
Lost that feeling cut and run
It's the same old setting
And I'm done
A timed retreat not a settling one
And I feel it beginning

Never never knew you somehow
Never knew your mind
Never mind you're kind now
Every once in a while
Never never knew you somehow
Never knew your mind
And I feel it beginning

Fingers peel my skin I'm done
Tainted touches no fun
Into sweeter arms I run
And I feel a beginning

Never never knew you somehow
Never knew your mind
Never mind you're kind now
Every once in a while
Never never knew you somehow
Never knew your mind
And I feel it beginning

It's time I find a kinda happy in the winter time
I find It's quiet and the light is right
Track Name: Pinprick In
It's a stream, pinprick in
Trickle it out again
Pillowed hips on a concrete lip
The lamé transcendent
Pick a theme, drink it in
A g-string bookend
Plan a slip on an ego ship
Your own descendent

Self-plundering
With your eyes closed
The current pushing
Billows of bubbles
Track Name: Lung
You made me wanna move
It's over too soon
Next plane without you
Can we see into
What happened today
You made me wanna move
Sleep produced these dreams
You see what I mean
Blowing over, growing out, seeping in
Let me breathe and see me out again
Blowing over, growing out, seeping in
Let me breathe

Take my wind away
Scraped lung
Squeezed, wrung

Between the two
The B and the C
Is what we retrieved
Can I see through
The other side is where we lie
Stumbling into it
Excite you or be new
Invent something for you
And give you my lungs
You take my wind away

Take my wind away
Scraped lung
Squeezed, wrung

Excite you or be new
Invent something for you
And give you my lungs
You take my wind away
Track Name: Green Meadow Yellow Meadow (feat. Luckless)
20 paces into the centre is where the body’s buried
Yellow meadow flower fennel turning into sweeter scented
Memories of summer salted
Cool dust on our skin is baking
I’ll give you what I owe you
What I paid you watch you got you got

Follow into yellow meadow
Follow into green
Track Name: Shady Drawers
I am, you are a pure strike
Of slivered light
Sharp and bright
But only sometimes

A lip-stained fabric in our house
But the words just came out now
And they're spitting round and round
But only sometimes

A snip of the scissors and you left
In the mirror just a withering glance

You lie in wait in shady drawers
Never mine, never yours
Wine-stained wall, untidy sheets
Irregular home, irregular beats
Track Name: Delivery
Deliver me
My delivery
I am the signatory
You came here for me
I see

The road to mine is not a simple line
I appreciate you took the time to find me out
Do you deliver me from evil things
Or just deliver them to me?
Track Name: Swerve (feat. Rachel Maio)
Is that all that I need?
Simple sounds so easy
Wake with a start from a vivid dream
Of more than you can see here
Does this sound like a fear?
Reminding, inhaling
Swerve into a suggestive lane
To more than you can see here
Track Name: Kept at Bay
What I have spent
A timeless spin didn't take it away
An hour stared into the end
Of another day
And still a speck
Stand still, afraid
And still a speck
In the wind suspend

Blinkered and kept at bay
Oceans away
I'm never coming home
I'm never coming home
My head in other sand
Way past your hands
I'm never coming home
I'm never coming home

Well I could be
That solidity
Feed the speck
And grow into an entity
And stil I think
Suspended speck
And spend too much time
Looking back

Blinkered and kept at bay
Oceans away
I'm never coming home
I'm never coming home
My head in other sand
Way past your hands
I'm never coming home
I'm never coming home
Track Name: Give Me One More
Hey! Give me one more

Put it behind me
Give me one more

Hey! Give me one more
Track Name: Top Horse
A sexy blonde talks about a white horse in a bathtub
Track Name: Minds Have Changed
Our minds have changed
They've made our homes seem strange
What signs were laid
Not seen or left for a later stage
I don't know the way
Wanna keep you all safe

Your thoughts have strayed
Though mine remain unchanged
The life we made
Now creaks and breaks from the greatest strain
I don't know the way
Wanna keep you all safe
