Track Name: Behind Walls
Empty your purses and wallets
Cash in your gold and jewels
This is the chance of a lifetime
Quit your jobs and start anew

We’ll build a shining beacon
A watchtower on a hill
When strangers come crashing our gates
We’ll take a vote on gets in

New laws will keep us protected
Fanatics will be kept at bay
Admit we’re all in this together
Intrinsic bonds never melt away…
Track Name: Your Bones
Sinking sands, sinking where I don’t know
Tripping wires, triggers what I don’t know

Applaud your sense of security
Composed beyond neo-modernity

Sealed notes, concealing what I don’t know
Broadcasts, feeding me what I don’t know

Applaud your sense of security
Composed beyond neo-modernity
Here’s the site now throw your tantrum
Mirrored glass an emerald rostrum

If you only know
What you see
Then you’ll never know
Your own bones
Track Name: AWOL
Wherever I lay my head
Is there trouble brewing?
Cast a gaze onto the street
Pairs of eyes stare back through

Wherever I lay my head
Wasn’t the worst decision
Kept a day-pack by the door
Should have seen me running

Wherever I lay my head
Need to know I’m safe
Cedars keep watch while I rest
Clutching a torn wool afghan

Amused, reduced
Unfurled
Transfixed, I am the fool
I am the fool

Whenever I lost my head
There was trouble brewing
I lied down within a well
Stayed hold-up for rescue
Track Name: Yield
Hear no noise now

Caught of guard
Caught in a wave that pulled me under
Surrendered to a megalodon

Caught in a train wreck
In a dirigible popped by a talon
On my lonesome

Locked in a vault
Feeling a sense of asphyxiation
All creation comforts you

Hear no noise now
Track Name: A Silhouette
There are boats passing by as I pace the beach
I’m trying to find one spec of sand
Been up and down this coastline
All I see are bottles I threw to sea

Children are laughing as they bury their friends
As thousands of tourists bake in the sun
Been back and forth along the surf
All I need’s a silhouette inline with me

Once I told you we’d meet on the dock
Curl our toes on the edge of the last plank
Clasped hands we’ll count down from 3
Feel that silhouette hovering over me
Track Name: The Descent
Tax man says he’s coming to round up all our things
Exiled to the land I tried to resist

Corrugated cardboard box taped up everything we own
Don’t weep for these walls it’s not your fault

A sound, a sound
Keeps us awake at night
A sound, a sound
Like bundled dynamite

Escorted from the premise neighbours watch from their lawns
Descend into the beast’s belly of the town

A sound, a sound
Keeps us awake at night
A sound, a sound
Like bundled dynamite
A light, a light
Shines through a thousand blinds
A light, a light
Shines in your deadweight eyes
Track Name: Neon Cross
You’ve got a neon cross
It’s lighted blue in case you get lost
Walking through your city streets
You always know where to get relief
Going to the front gates
You pay a quarter to meditate
Talking to the holy man
Your neon cross is such a sham

Throw your burdens at me
Or you toss them to the cross
And either way you’re forgiven
You know I’ve been hated

It’s lit up like Times Square
Your neon cross has quite a glare
I’m going to drive right past
Don’t have the time don’t have the gas
To leave my car idling
While you explain your convictions
Still, I’ll be there when you die
And pull the switch on your neon light

Throw your hatred at me
Or you toss it to the cross
And either way you’re forgiven
You know I’ve been hated
Track Name: Me and You
Calling the black sheep home
From moss fields he knows to roam
To shelter from rain and snow
And bask in your fluorescent glow

Gauging the pros and cons
The shepherd tends the flock
Lions and wolves prowl down
Black sheep follows you around

But what if he strays?
Down in the valley between here and there
Would it matter anyway?
There’s nothing to compare

It’s always me and you and you
It’s always been
Can’t it just be you and me
From now on
So it’s always me and you
Just me and you
Track Name: This Place
Riding there on this machine a creation that should not have been
Still I hold on tight as dust and soot flies into my eyes and I wait
In this life I choose to live far beyond what is understood

Wave goodbye to where old borders lie time to begin and draw new lines

And this room will be magnificent again I swear in a foreign language
And will shake the whole foundation down, I’ll see to that myself
If you think it can’t be done, I’ll show this whole fucker’s coming down

Wave goodbye to where old borders lie time to begin and draw new lines
Track Name: All's Not Lost
You woke up to comfort me again
From lightning strikes, long brontides
A shift in air that began at sea

I brushed off habutai sheets
Stood by the pane, with mouth agape
As water drowned our private beach
