Track Name: Clear
Mind can't hold the thought and clears
Mind can't hold the thought
Mind can't hold the thought and clears
Let it go...
Track Name: The Ride
Another Monday morning
Another where she’s by herself
She packs her bags for leaving
She’s off to find somebody else
She just sits there waiting
Wondering why she’s on the train
Trees flashing by the window
Thoughts crashing though her brain

All she wanted
To find someone else
All she wanted
To find someone else

He’s sitting at his desk
Been sitting there for what seems like an age
Got to get his shit together
He’s staring at the same damn page
He’s sitting on the platform
Sweat is dripping down his back
He can feel anticipation
The train is rushing down the track

All he wanted
To find someone else
All he wanted
To find someone else

She’s stepping off the train
She’s shaking, electric is in the air
He’s searching through the faces
He catches a flash of long blond hair
He’s running down the platform
He’s shouting, the people like a stream
She turns and then she see’s him
She pours herself on him like a dream

And all she wanted
To find someone else
All she wanted
To find someone else
Track Name: All On Me
I'll tell you something...
Its no way to carry on
Can't do right for doing wrong
You're such a critic

Why should it always be on me?
Why should it always be on me?
Seems like the way it's got to be (or what you really think of me)
Why should it always be on me?

Speak in time
No reason or rhyme
Making mountains all the time
I'm a cynic

Why should it always be on me?
Why should it always be on me?
Seems like the way it's got to be (or what you really think of me)
Why should it always be on me?
Track Name: Sunlight Beating
I've been sleeping here among the grass and heather
Sunlight beating, reflecting off my face
Years healing the wounds incurred from best intentions
Caught stealing, trying to secure a happy life

You broke into my heart
You broke into my mind
Here you'll stay
Til my dying day

Broken lines, I'm blocked from every single quarter
Tried your hardest but one link still remains
A lucky capture, gave you a picture you'll always treasure
You never looked better a piece of me that you still see

You broke into my heart
You broke into my mind
Here you'll stay
Til my dying day
Put me in your picture
Put me in your mirror
Here I'll stay til your dying day
Track Name: Now I'm Gone
Guilty pleasures not the first, by any stretch.
Not the last time that I'll see this situation.
Check the time it's 6:04, start to focus,
grab my stuff and head towards your door.

Do you miss me now I'm gone?
It's like I wasn't there at all.
Like a ghost that passed right through you.
Thought you'd left your mark on me
It must be one that I can't see
Or just don't notice now I'm gone.

Left a heavy load on you, time after time.
Work and play don't mix ok, it seems.
Stayed in touch with who I am, cos I quite like me.
That's why I upped and left while you were sleeping.

Do you miss me now I'm gone?
It's like I wasn't there at all
Like a ghost that passed right through you.
Thought you'd left your mark on me
It must be one that I can't see
Or just don't notice now I'm gone
Track Name: Friends
Sometimes I find it hard to recollect,
the things we did before we were just friends.
It seems that if I had my time again,
I'd try harder to avoid a sticky end.
Once was bad enough.
Friends is not enough.

I play the scene over, over again,
that led to us becoming more than friends.
I know now what I should have known back then,
but can't see any way to make amends.
Once was bad enough.
Friends is not enough.

Does it have to be this way?
You've said your piece and had your say.
I'll tell you something you know it's true,
no-one else gets me like you do.

I pick about the threads now and again,
of the time elapsed since we've been just friends.
The time for introspection came and went,
don't ask me if I think it's time well spent
Once was bad enough.
Friends is not enough.

Does it have to be this way?
You've said your piece and had your say
I'll tell you something you know it's true
No-one else gets me like you do

I rack my poorly brain to death and yet,
It seems the time has come now for regret....
Track Name: Meatball
I stepped through the wardrobe and guess what I’ve seen
Lions and bitches for my company
They shook me awake and the first thing they said
We’re off to find the king, off with his head!

He’s a tyrannical sod they say with grim grin
Where’s this dagger come from, they push me straight in
To confront the big man with a meatball for a head
He doesn’t realise they all want him dead!
No, he doesn’t realise they all want him dead!

He’s watching, he’s seething
He’s Lying, he’s heated
He’s sulking, he’s purple
He’s gnashing his teeth
And he’s fearing the mutiny
Fury is building
Sooner or later the meatball will pop

He’s watching, he’s seething
He’s Lying, he’s heated
He’s sulking, he’s purple
He’s gnashing his teeth
And he’s fearing the mutiny
Fury is building
Sooner or later the meatball will pop
Track Name: Orange Light
I knew that I was right
And not for the first time I’m on a knife
I remember you walking away
It was a beautiful autumn day
You were perfect
In the orange light

And in the swell of time
I can feel the breath of life
Now I’m blind to sight
Oh, in the blinding light
Oh, the orange light

Yeah it’s paradise
