Track Name: Beachcomber
Hey orange, there is a sign
Its spinning choices with time
And sitting by the waterside
Waiting to be seen
It’s dawn and your stare is gracing
over my weary face
I’m waiting, unfolding chains
Waiting for your name
Good morning, good, good morning sunshine
Can’t you tell I’m glad to know you’re alive
Chance is once more look in your eyes
I’ll be your sweet baby for life
I’m raising up every morn
Collecting hearts from your door
Expanding within my mind
Waiting to take flight
Good morning, good, good morning sunshine
Can’t you tell I’m glad to know you’re alive
Chance is once more look in your eyes
I’ll be your sweet baby tonight
Good morning, good, good morning sunshine
Can’t you tell I’m glad to know you’re alive
Chance is once more look in your eyes
I’ll be your sweet baby tonight
Chance is once more look in your eyes
I’ll be your sweet baby for life
Track Name: Pink Noise
The day I turned away I didn’t know
I’d shatter in the glow
Through a blistered heart an opening
A function of the sting
I don’t mean to stand don’t mean to recognize
The factions in your eyes
Silvery colonies of falling leaves
Because I’m free of air
I’m on my way
Ready to change
Ready to fade into your arms again
Billowing from frowns and pink noise
Snapping at the joints
The melody of calm overhead
Dripping down on me
I don’t mean to stand don’t mean to recognize
The killer in your eyes
Silver shackles and a shattered harp
Because I’m free of air
I’m on my way
Ready to change
Ready to fade into your arms again
Track Name: Ladybird
You give me something like a heartache
Enough to keep a boy wide awake
Dying for a dance with you
So when everyone’s in such a hurry
I don’t have the time to worry
I’m dying for a dance with you
You keep on coming
Like milk and honey
I’ve seen the pieces
You didn’t need to speak
Ladybird,
I know it’s true
You break so easily
Your colored wings turn to black and white
I’m just dying for a chance to be somebody else’s baby!
A world away from the skyline
See the stars through a whole new set of eyes
Trying for romance, dying for a dance with you
You keep on coming
Like milk and honey
I’ve seen the pieces
You didn’t need to speak
Ladybird,
I know it’s true
You break so easily
Your colored wings turn to black and white
I’m just dying for a chance to be somebody else’s baby!
You give me something like a heartache
Enough to keep a boy wide awake
Dying for a dance…
Trying for romance,
Dying for a dance with you
Track Name: Feathers
There’s a murder in this town, there’s a town in this murder
Sunrise in the sky, blank heart deserter
Stealing all my bread, every single morn
Running forwards and backwards, my pockets are all torn
Can’t you see, can’t you see
Can’t you see what the other side of love does to me
I’ve got pockets in my mind, I’ve got feathers in my brain
Pockets in my mind, butter in my brain
There’s a full moon on the rise and I’m sinking to ashes
My heart is entwined, my hands are molasses
Can’t you see, can’t you see
Can’t you see what the other side of love does to me
I’ve got metal in my mouth, I’ve got tinsel in my teeth
Metal in my mouth, cold smile beneath
I am breaking through the door as my face turns to gold
My hands are on fire, my brain explodes
Can’t you see, can’t you see
Can’t you see what the other side of love does to me
There’s a murder in this town, there’s a town in this murder
Sunrise in the sky, blank heart deserter
Stealing all my bread, almost every single morn
Running forwards and backwards, my pockets are all torn
Can’t you see, can’t you see
Can’t you see what the other side of love does to me
Track Name: Impostor
I’ve been waking up to an impostor in my own bed
Still she gets me through the night
Worn out welcomes, empty stares, evaporate like water
Still she brings me back to life
Blocks me from the light
I’m so frozen up inside
Oh, ever changing world I know
My true love is a ghost love

Some people walk the world with a smile
Others drink themselves til they’re blue
Don’t wanna throw myself into denial
I just wanna move back in with you
I really wanna move back i with you
No, I don’t miss all of the cursing and the tension
But I miss your loving arms
All the things we’d talk about
And the way we’d talk about them
Oh, ever changing world I know
My real love is a gone love
Some people walk the world with a smile
Others ramble on about what I should do
Don’t wanna throw myself into the wild
Mother Nature will bring me back to you
Mother Nature will bring me back to you
And Mother Mary will somehow guide me through
Ever changing world I know
I’ve been waking up to an impostor
Track Name: Waterthingy
Can we go down to the waterside, the waterside?
And watch the moonlight on the waves tonight, the waves tonight?
I want to know where
I want to know where we’re free
I want to go where
I want to go where we’re free
Can we go home to bed tonight, to bed tonight?
And sing ourselves, some lullabies, some lullabies?
I want to know where
I want to know where we’re free
I want to go where
I want to go where we’re free
Where it’s you and me
Track Name: Chained To The Stars
I’m chained to the stars
My heart is strapped to The Sun
I’m chained to the stars
My heart is strapped to The Sun
I wake up every morning with my face frozen to the floor
Cocaine pretty baby
Cocaine and get my fill
Cocaine pretty mama
Don’t save me nothing will
I’ll keep riding this ghost train until the night becomes the day
Take care pretty baby
Lest you fall in the face of pain
Take care pretty baby
Lest you fall in love again
I’m just tired of runnin’ ‘round this town
Not a reason known by now
I’m chained to the stars
I’m chained to the stars
Track Name: All These Stars
All these stars collide and spin out
Racing down my spine and breaking out
Don’t recall if you fall
Like a vampire’s crawl
With your radio on display
All these stars collide and spin out
The way I felt you
The way I felt you
All these worlds of mine are breaking out
Racing down my spine and shaking out
In a maze
In a cage
Where I can not rephrase
The condition that brings dismay
All these worlds of mine are breaking out
The way I felt you
The way I felt you
The way I felt you
Nobody else knows the way I felt you
