Track Name: The Greater Good
Speak now and be clear.
For the greater good.
Speak now and be clear.
For the greater good.
Speak now and be clear.
For the greater good.
Speak now and be clear.
For the greater good.
Track Name: Suffer This
The scenes play round and round
In sweet slow-motion
The words fade in and out
But where are you now?

A hundred-thousand days have carried you away.
An old familiar face.
A ripple on a lake becomes a crashing wave.
A look is all it takes.

Your town, your road, your house
I barely worked you out
The words stick in my mouth
Where are you now?

A hundred-thousand days have carried you away.
An old familiar face.
A ripple on a lake becomes a crashing wave.
A look is all it takes.
An insect in my brain, a slow burning ache that just won't go away.
The memory persists and I must suffer this.

Just look at what you did.

An insect in my brain, a slow burning ache that just won't go away.
The memory persists and I must suffer this.
Track Name: Hear Me Out
Have you noticed lately that I’ve not been around?
Perhaps I tripped and fell and I’m laying on the ground.
Could you spare some time now or next week, I don't mind.
I’m sure that you’ve got problems yourself, you don’t need mine.

Just forget I said it.

Will it surprise you when I don’t come to the door?
Do I ever cross your mind? Do you think of me at all?
Could you spare some time maybe one day when you’re free?
Or save yourself first, don’t go wasting time on me.

Like I said, forget it.

Friends evaporating in the blinking of an eye.
The TV’s on, the bulbs have gone and the year is slipping by.

Does it worry you when you hear me say these things?
Cover your eyes, your ears, just don’t let the words get in.
Could you spare some time maybe catch me when I fall?
Or you could walk on past me like I’m not there at all.

Then forget about it.

Friends evaporating in the blinking of an eye
The TV’s on, the bulbs have gone and the year is slipping by.
The walls the only witness to my final breath tonight
The world moves on but I’ll be gone with the dying of the light.

Hear me out.
Hear me out.
Hear me out.
I need you now.
Track Name: Obsolete
I am outdated.
Be rid of me.
Wash you soiled hands.
Wash yourself and be free.

Nothing that I say makes up for all the time we waste.

Moment of freedom
You are reborn.
I lay down my life.
You can live on.

I run in circles. You have exhausted me and now…

All my work’s undone.

Still have your picture
Still cook you meals.
Still call your name out.
Still think you’re here.

I have looked everywhere, but you are nowhere to be found.

All my work’s undone.

Drowned in the river
New Year’s Day
With a new model
I am replaced

Tell me you love me, or leave me hanging from your tree
All my work’s undone.
Track Name: Let's All Look Away
Now there's nothing to be done
Read it out now, one by one
Let's all look away, let's all look the other way
In our favourite chair we try and find the will to care

Let's all look away
Let's all look away

What was that? What did he say?
It doesn't matter either way
Always ends the same, the same conclusion to a different game
And you can rear your head but I've found something else instead

Let's all look away
Let's all look away
Let's all look away
Let's all look away

Let's all look away
Let's all look away
Let's all look away
Let's all look away
Let's all look away
Let's all look away
Track Name: Perfect Weakness
A spark that lights in you a fire,
That knocks you off your feet,
That stirs a feeling in your spine,
And brings you to your knees.

The light that just catches your eye,
Reveals just what you’re thinking,
Betrays your heart’s desires,
For all the world to see them.

A perfect weakness.
As vital as the sun,
A human reflex,
That cannot be undone, cannot be undone.

A simple touch that freezes time,
Reanimates your feelings.
That speaks of the divine,
And leaves your senses reeling.

The jolt that brings you back to life,
And keeps your cool heart beating,
And all the pain subsides,
As natural as breathing.

A perfect weakness,
As vital as the sun.
A human reflex,
That cannot be undone.

And in a moment,
That’s gone as quickly as it comes,
The sudden sweet sensation,
Your life has just begun.
Track Name: Sew Up The Holes
Give me the operation I need.
Stop the bleeding, stem the flow, apply the tourniquet.

Clean up after all is done with, mop up spills, dry the sheets, begin the therapy.

Feed me up and build me up, so I leave with my spleen vented, my eyes pinned and my veins injected, my mind healed and my soul corrected. Please sew up the holes you left in me.

Shaved head, attach electrodes, I trust you completely, rid me of painful memories. Make me a better person, heal me, apply the lotion, change me to the perfect citizen.

Feed me up and build me up, so I leave with my spleen vented, my eyes pinned and my veins injected, my mind healed and my soul corrected. Please sew up the holes you left in me.

Feed me up and build me up, so I leave with my spleen vented, my eyes pinned and my veins injected, my mind healed and my soul corrected. Please sew up the holes you left in me.
Track Name: Promises
A lonely burning candle
The flicker of a reassuring flame
A house to keep you from harm
Words to ease your pain

The lure of the familiar
A picture-perfect scene of love and fear
A pact you made with yourself
The whispers in your ear

What if they got it wrong?

They promised you salvation.
You put your faith in everything they said.
“Your friends are waiting for you,
A place to lay your head”.

What if they got it wrong?
What if they got it wrong?
Track Name: Comfort of Strangers
There were those who said they’d love you forever
Will they even really notice when you’re gone?
When the ones you love won’t even forgive you, do you belong?

There are people here who tell you they need you.
Will they even really notice when you’re gone?
When the ones you love won’t even stand by you, are you alone?

When will you have won?
When will all your work be done?
You fool yourself.
Do you fool anybody else?

You’re alone in a room full of strangers.
You’re alone in a room full of friends.
And you’re screaming out for someone to help you.
Well help yourself.

And you’re screaming out for someone to help you.
Well help yourself.
Track Name: The Waiting Song
I’ve been waiting for you to fly away with me.
To take me by the hand, and show me things I’ve never seen.

The roads and rivers are pencil lines from where we are.
The towns and cities are nothing now, we’ve come so far.

Its there we lay by the river.
Its there we lay on the ground.
Its there we stay till the morning.
Till it all came crashing down.

Away, away.
Away, away.
Away, away.
Away, away.
