Track Name: Loneliness Has Got A Hold On Me
loneliness has got a hold on me
tired eyes are now all plain to see
in a hazy stupor
a raging thunder
that dares not look inside
loneliness has got a hold on me

waking up
never feels quite alive
silent days
night might as well just be the time
and i'm feeding strays to stay on top
and i'm eating out alone a lot
loneliness has got a hold on me
Track Name: Law Under A Tree
la la la la la!
i was out of breath
i was losing my mind
in an unfortunate scene
like i committed a crime, yeah!

we had arguments and fights
but never so blind not to accept our mistakes
kiss and make up
forgive and forget
like we never even met -> first time

such an elaborate plan
we tried to put into action
until nothing but fractions
seemed to multiply
it was a lost cause to chase
so then i left with some haste
and liberated i fly
to meet an old flame of mine

yeah i was on the run
from something
someone
somebody to blame
somewhere to fly to
SUN!

i don't care what they say
they're all liars; gossip away
if they try to bring me down
well they will feel my wrath
believe me
they will feel my wrath.
Track Name: Ignite
since you
left
i've turned into
ash
my powers are waning
since you
went away
my heart just burns
dyyyyyyyyyyying embers

if this is the very last song i ever write
then let's make it the best song ever
well i'll try
but the words are all stilted
and who will be there to recommend?
Or just criticize me?

who will be my fire to ignite?
who will be my fire to ignite?
i need a flame
guess i need a flame.

i tread
softly
there's no return
you
no longer complete me
since you
went away
the clouds just burst
into rainfall
if this is the very last song i ever write
then let's make it the best song ever
well i'll try
i don't want to disappoint you
i'll try to go out now with a bang
(or a bullet in the head...j/k).
Track Name: Prom Nite
all dances for a fretful mind
so how do i dress so that i will look nice?
i swallow my pride and ask someone i like
to go to the prom with my fingers crossed tight

teenage thoughts are selfish and unkind
but we make an effort, if for just one night
i cut my hair and i buy some flowers
i walk around my room for hours

all for the chance of a kiss when the night ends.

she takes me onto the dancefloor
with a twinkle in her eye
she whispers some words into my ear
and i blush towards the sky

in love

at twelve we go to
someone's house party
a friend of a friend of someone unlikely
and at the party
they're all so naughty
some curious smoke
and some light
and boys on boys

she pulls my hand
dragged up the stairs
pushes me to an empty room
she puts her finger on my lips
and tells me,
"Hush now, don't you speak my child"
Corrupts me gently
"Don't you speak my child"
Corrupts me gently
"Hush now, don't you speak my child"
Track Name: January Showers
january showers falling on a new year
filling up the buckets
like a well worn in a storm
pitter patter welcome to the dawn

suddenly a hailstorm storming without warning
bruising and confusing
like a passenger in a car
trembling so oblivious to the hours

my intuition tells me not to lose it
jumping to conclusions
Track Name: Mourning (Dearly)/Law On A Mountain
dearly bereaved
we mourn the departed.
Track Name: Stopgap
how does it feel
to be used
and discarded?

cos baby you're a stopgap
darling you're a stopgap

now how does it feel
to be so disposable?
like a razor or a camera
or broken lightbulb?
to be so inconsequential?
or to mean nothing at all?

so how does it feel
to be used
and discarded?
how does it feel to be used?

do you remember the time
when i was so faithful?
do you remember
when i was so faithful
to you, oh baby
to you
or anyone?

but now you're just a stopgap
I will make excuses for it:
"I don't want commitment"
"I just want to be alone"
yes i really like you BUT
i must leave you
but i don't mean to hurt you...
cos i will just fuck around.

so i'm sorry.
Track Name: Coriander Y
coriander y
we talk about you all the time
and it makes them all laugh
reminiscing about you baby
coriander y
we talk about you all the time
but it makes me feel so sad
just thinking about you baby

it takes all kinds of weather
to bring us closer together
and though we are apart
i still dream about you girl

all this silence is so hard
who can save this breaking heart?
i'm missing the tranquility
of having you beside me
all this silence is so loud
all my friends are so lowbrow
this empty space inside of me
cos half of you is half of me

it takes all kinds of weather
to bring us closer together
and though we are apart
i still dream about you girl
Track Name: Time To Make Things Right
arguments are going nowhere
maybe we should learn from our mistakes
we only fight because we care
but now's the time to make things right
all alone
the quiet of the night
just hold yourself and don't forget
the feeling when i held you tight
it made me feel like oooohhhhhh.

all that i said to you was wrong
please don't stay so mad for very long

who knows how to make me smile?
who can turn my head with just a glance
a curling lip
suggestive eyes
that burrow straight into my mind
colouring my thoughts with velvet light
a turn of phrase
slip of the tongue
and now's the time to make things right
it made me feel like oooohhhhhh.
Track Name: Destination: CA
Who am I to count the final seconds down?
So I decline and turn away
Cos you and I divide like tables on the wall
How nice to lie
Release of tension

Can't afford to wait around
I'm having a new start
Brian, Mike, Carl, Dennis
sang me summer songs of love
Can't afford to wait around
I'm having a new start
California, destination
One way, here I come!

Who are you to tell me
what is right or wrong?
How we can be so hypocritical
You and I divide
like stormy oceans
How we'll survive
Is not a given
