Track Name: Out of the Shelter
Not ashamed of who I am
Not afraid to see the light
I’ll take the consequence of staying alive
Head’s not buried in the sand
I’m not a slave to who I was
Still driven by desire
I’ll stay and wait
Until I find a shelter

Are all these promises enough
Everything I’ve set in stone
These images of life
Of lovers and friends now gone
All this time, this dead time
I feel closer to it
Now that it’s gone
I’ll stay and wait
And still no shelter, no shelter

It’s been a tough time
Such a tough time
Everything’s changed
Now that I know
My life’s a mission
It’s been a tough time
And it’s tough for life

I feel closer, then it’s gone
I’ll stay and wait
Out of the shelter
Track Name: Like Everyone Does
All life’s troubles
They’ve taken their toll on you now
Feel the pressure to work something out

Darling it takes some effort
You do what you can to survive
You got to make decisions, everyone does
Tell me, why are you always in bed
What’s going on in your head sister

Sit on the porch and cry
While you’re waiting for life to work out
It’s so easy to plan things that won’t happen
Best just to try and get by
Like everyone does


So much pity
So sorry for yourself now
Angry at all these people bringing you down
Tell me, cant you see what you’ve done wrong
Why must you blame for so long sister

Sit on the porch and cry
While you’re waiting for life to work out
It’s so easy to plan things that won’t happen
Best just to try and get by
Like everyone does

Tell me, why must it be like before
Come let us try once more sister

Let’s sit on the porch and try
While we’re waiting for life to work out
It’s so easy to fall back into old patterns
Maybe that’s how we get by
Like everyone does
Track Name: Marcela
Marcela goes with anyone
Who makes her feel she’s pretty
She gets her kicks in Camden Town
But she don’t like the city
She says that time goes slow
That’s why she feels so
Don’t have to listen very hard
You’ll hear the scars
You’ll hear the scars

Time cuts, time makes no sound
She’s always down for the count
Out and about town

Pale August moon
She looks so ready for it
Takes off her shoes
New pair she’s hardly walked in
You know that time stands still
That’s how tonight feels
And if you listen hard
You’ll hear the stars
You’ll hear stars


They shout
They make a sound
That’s why
She’s always around
Out and about town
Marcela
She’s spinning round
She won’t go down
For the count
Out and about town
Track Name: Don't Knock on my Door
She is hard done by
Her hair’s wet, her blouse dirty
And she longs to be back in his arms

For the last hour
She’s been talking and sobbing
Screaming, walking away
It’s no good though, he won’t listen

Don’t come around here
Don’t knock on my door no more
Don’t you be trying to find a cure
I ain’t gonna help you
Ain’t gonna help

Don’t come around here
Don’t knock on my door no more
Don’t you be trying to find me
Ain’t gonna help you
Ain’t gonna help, you hear me

She used to go to parties
Every party used to be for her
She was so pretty
But now, look at her now
She’ll work it out
She’ll sober up, he’ll see
It will be different, she’s so close now
Why must he be so mean

Don’t come around here
Don’t knock on my door no more
Don’t you be trying to find a cure
I ain't gonna help you, ain't gonna help

Don’t come around here
Dont knock on my door no more
Don’t you be trying to find me
Ain’t gonna help you
Ain’t gonna help, you hear me

She’s getting better, besides
It’s no big deal, come on
Let’s just go inside
He makes it better

Don’t come around here
Dont knock on my door no more
Don’t you be trying to find me
Ain’t gonna help you
Ain’t gonna help, you hear me
Track Name: Fatherland
Born to die an honest son
Not to worry when the day is done
Close your eyes and pray
That you will wake up
A better man this time
What am I missing? Oh so many things
The scent of orange
On a salty western wind
A snowy mountain and the desert sand
A rolling thunder across the fatherland

Nothing like it
Nothing like the real thing
Nothing like it, no
Nothing like the real thing

Pay to leave and close the door
Don’t remember where I stayed before
Was it here or was it someplace better
I don’t know no more
I could be tripping but my tie is on
I must be dreaming cause I feel
So wrong and dry
Oh please forgive me
Didn’t mean to hurt or offend
See I thought I knew you
From the fatherland

Nothing like it
Nothing like the real thing
Nothing like it, no
Nothing like the real thing
It’s real, it’s real
Nothing like it
Nothing like the real thing
Nothing like it, no
Nothing like the real thing
Track Name: Bells
Give it to me like it is
Selfish and free as it is
Holding red flowers
Waiting for summer to end
Reckless life’s leaving a stain

Punish me love don’t forgive
Trigger my heart to receive
Your words of loneliness
Echoing mine I believe
Were just fools trying to breathe

Reach for me now, say the words
Peace for us now in the world
Winter is coming
The flowers are fading, farewell
And I will remember those bells
Track Name: On Our Way
Hold on very tight to me
We might be in for stormy weather
Nothing’s on our mind, just breathe
The coast is not so far away now
There’s no haste
We’ll get there
It’s our way to be free

This is a narrow path we tread
A narrow path that’s seldom chosen
And now that we know where it began
I wonder where’s our destination
But I’ll bet we’ll get there
And on the way we’ll see

What’s lost now
Will be found again someday
What’s lost now
Will be found again someday

What’s lost now will be found again
What’s lost now will be found again
Lost and will be found again someday
Track Name: Fay
No alarm can get in my head today
No such sound can stick in my head today
I’ve been hunting for lines
Out on the range again
Biding my time, tugging these chains for change
And no bad luck
Can come between me and Fay
Can come between me and

tell your friends don’t wait
They wont understand no
Stop yourself too late
It’s better to let it grow
This ground is frail
Were standing in borrowed shoes
I’m feeling you, feeling you
Were made to forget now

And before first light
I know you will fade away
Before my eyes will get used to the sun again
I’ve been reaching for hearts
Falling apart these days
And guessing my crimes
Looking for signs to say
That it’s not your fault
But I wish you were mine to save
I wish you were mine Fay

Tell your friends don’t wait
They wont understand no
Stop yourself too late
It’s better to let it grow
This ground is frail
Were standing in light exhumed
I’m feeling you, feeling you
Don’t ever forget now
Track Name: End of the Affair
I see us walking down that road
One that leads back to the cold
You’ve let me down again
How can it be
The ways of love have taken hold
Bag of memories I’ve sold
To pay to be with you
And now you give it away
And I’m on my own again
That’s ok I got friends

And they
Come and then stay
Come and then stay
Come and then stay with me
With me

Could be you needed time to grow
Or be it something I don’t know
But that don’t matter now
You see, I’m moving away
And now it’s so safe to say
You’re no longer my girl
My girl

I’ll be ok
I’ll be ok
I’ll be ok with time
With time

And so goes the end of the affair
Track Name: Slowly
Living a lie
Ain’t no use to pretend
That everything’s right
When the walls are caving in
All around you
Need to decide
And you need to be quick cause
There isn’t much time
Before the shades go down
On this final play
You will have your say

Ain’t gonna change no way
I’m taking it slowly
Don’t really care
If I’m lonely with the pain
But no lies, no pretend

Time to go on with the show
Don’t you ask why
It’s better you don’t know
What’s the point of it all
I wait for the answers to come
I’m nobody’s Sun
So I might as well go on
It’s a sad affair
If you stop to care

Ain’t gonna change no way
I’m taking it slowly
I don’t really care
If I’m lonely with the pain
But no lies, no pretend
Ain’t gonna change no way
I’m taking it slowly
I’d rather be sad than live
Only to pretend
To go fast till the end

Ain’t gonna change no way
I’m taking it slowly
I don’t really care
If I’m lonely with the pain
But no lies, no pretend
Track Name: Still Fading
You pledge allegiance to your face
A member of a club with one condition
You could be anybody else
Leaving signatures, but just on paper
Say what you say, got no problem
Do what you want, it’s all right
But don’t tell me you’ve got light
There’s no light here

Still fading, that’s your fate
Still fading, still fading

There’s hardly ever a surprise
The game is easy and the rules are simple
You give them anything they want
They give you money, put you in the paper
Play how you play, got no issues
Do what you like, it’s your right
But don’t tell me you’re all right
That’s a lie girl

Still fading, that’s your fate
Still fading, still fading

Just wait and see
They’ll turn their backs on you
You’ve got enemies now
Time’s your enemy
Still fading, still fading
Don’t be surprised
When they’ll point their guns at you
There will be no use for you soon
There will be no use for you

Ain’t no use
Your time is gonna come, it might be now

Still fading, fading fast
