Track Name: Who's At Your Window
Who’s at your window my dear
At your window laughing
Who, it’s a child of the storm
Let him in and he'll never go home

Don’t talk about it
Don’t think about it anymore
Just go, better just go
The engine’s running
Eyes red and burning from the cold
Dead slow, talking dead slow

All prisoners stand off to one side
Their heads bowed, covered eyes
Tally the count, wait for it now
The smoke starts, the lines buzz

Who’s at your window my dear
At your window laughing
Who, it’s a child of the storm
Let him in and he'll never go home

Lights in the sky
Lights on the ground
They're coming out
Just go, shouting just go
Give us a sign, give us a sign
Who’s asking for it
So long, they’re holding us for so long

One foot at a time, all together
Don’t let them break it up, break us up
Break up
We can survive, as the stars shine now
So below us, so below us

Who’s at your window my dear
At your window laughing
Who, it’s a child of the storm
Let him in and he’ll never go home
Track Name: Embers
I saw you, last night we met
A smoke filled tomb
Our embers glowing away
Sounds of our whispers
Lost in the room

I saw you, last night we met
Two strangers here
Reflecting bare silhouettes
Of tiger and hunter
Following deer

I saw you, last night we met
The flames burned rough
Surrendered all that was left
All that was given, took off our gloves

I saw you, last night we met
As two lost souls
The embers of our escape are flickering out now
Begging for more
Track Name: Spit Fire
Hold me still don't take me out
Cold until you say it loud
Old fires cooking now
Bored in bed you’ve let me down
All this while I’m watching now
Lost in space, I hear you
Leave no trace, I see you
Twist your face, I feel you all with mad rage

Broke and beat defend your town
Stand in streets like every clown
Lost in space, I hear you
Leave no trace, I see you
Twist your face
I feel you all with mad rage
Now

All of my days
All of my nights
Hot on my friends
Hot on my fights
I ask for it here
I get it out there
The fire's the same
But nobody cares

I and I in my head
I and I won’t be saved

Lost in space, I hear you
Leave no trace, I see you
Twist your face
I feel you all with mad rage
Now
Track Name: All These Places
Wide awake and hungry
I can feel the weight is coming off
Tearing at the edges of my new found love
I can see the colours while my eyes are shutting out the light
Burning all the images before I'm ready to fight

Out of my head
Out of all the wars I fought and words I wasted
The memory stops, everything goes white
I'm still in all these places

On the road to Ithaca
The truth is sometimes easy to find
Let's celebrate a moment
While the world wastes precious time
Oh I can paint a picture of it now
But it might not be true
All this could be a dream for me
Why hesitate to see it through

Out of my head
Out of all the wars I fought and words I’ve wasted
The memory stops, everything goes white
I'm still in all these places

I'm out of my head
I'm out of all the wars I fought and words I’ve wasted
The memory stops, everything goes white
I'm still in all these places
I'm out of my head
Track Name: I Know What You Want
I was wasting time but I didn't know I was till I met you
And then I was alone, staying far away from home
And missing truth
Feeling lost and shut away
I had no one else to play with, no
Took forever to come down
I was turning into someone I don't know

We were getting on
Trying hard to break the stones of our days
Just about to fall
With our backs against the wall of this dark and empty maze
I was never one to choose careful words
I always lose that fight
And the memory remains
We were lovers, now were friends
But is that right?

I know what you want, I wish you knew it too

Now I could try and say
We were meant to drift away
It was a natural sort of thing
Or I could blame the days
When the light refused to shine on
Our souls and skins
I've been meaning to let go
But I feel like you should know this now
And the days they multiply
Leaving shadows of the ones we were behind

I know what you want, I wish you knew it too
Track Name: Didn't I just
It brings a tear to my eye
When I think of all the things I could have tried
But I didn't, oh why didn't I
It sparks a pain in my heart
When I think of all the things that I did start
But never finished, oh why didn't I

I could have been a true contender
I would have made them all surrender
But I didn't understand
Now the wheels have spun around

It pains to think of all the stuff
I kept putting on the shelf and never taking out
I try to work out, oh why didn't I
A mark of a shame on my soul
When a mission never seems to reach it's known goal
No navigator but I, why didn’t I

I could have been a true contender
I would have made them all surrender
But I didn't understand
Now the wheels have spun around
Didn’t I just
Track Name: Late In The Day
Turn me over, on the outside
I know you want to be friends
But I've suffered enough
I suffer now
Kiss me lazy, sweet old four eyes
I know it's late in the day but I’ll give you my love
I’ll give it now

We’re saved, lets not go through it all again
It smells like cigarettes, and army mines
A ragged time behind the lines
I’ve written once before
And now once more

Pray for something, live forever amen
Well I don’t know your plans
Or what they're good for
But I'll take it
Creeping crawling new sensations
How I wish for the best
Observe, they’ll put blood on your hands
If you let them

We’re saved, lets not go through it all again
It smells like cigarettes, and army mines
A ragged time behind the lines
I’ve written once before
And now once more
Track Name: Honorable Man
Everywhere he goes, people at his side
Whispering words, talking about pride
He's an honorable man

Everywhere he goes, people at his side
Whispering words, talking about pride
He's an honorable man

I’m not here for beauty
I’m not here to do good
You’ve gone and put me in a chair
And now I'm sitting, anyone would
I ain't here to represent you
I ain't here to do right
You won't get no mercy out of me my friend
Not in this fight

Everywhere he goes, people at his side
Whispering words, talking about pride
He's an honorable man

Just get me started with a ball and chain
I’ll paint the numbers and change the names
Don’t have to worry
Keep it nice and clean
It’s a new morning
He rides the dream

Everywhere he goes
It’s everywhere he goes
I can see it coming
I can feel it coming
It’s everywhere he goes
It’s everywhere he goes

Everywhere he goes, people at his side
Whispering words, talking about pride
He's an honorable man
Everywhere he goes, people at his side
Whispering words, talking about pride
He's an honorable man, he is


I’m not done telling lies
I’m not done closing eyes
I’ll shed my skin for it
These hands will bleed for it
I dream of symmetry
No room for poetry
These clouds are dangerous
These clouds are everywhere I go

They're everywhere I go
I can see it coming
I can feel it coming
These clouds are everywhere I go
They're everywhere I go
I can see it coming
Oh I can feel it coming
It’s everywhere I go
Track Name: I'll Make My Way Home
Took off to lands
Driven by ghosts
I've no fear to find the gates closed
Save yourself, save yourself
And count your doors
I'll make my way home

Save your faith
Humbled by oaths
I was raised to sleep in my clothes
In the hot winds, in the hot winds
The Summer grows
I'll make my way home

Now promises
Are left on the road
The bags are full, and ready to load
Brace yourself, honey brace yourself
Open your doors
I'll make my way home
Track Name: This Light
Once I’ve let it in
There's no going back
It’s the same way
We're all creatures now
I've seen red and black
I've reached in, and I’ve taken out

Look the other way
With your tainted eyes
There's a cold front
Coming to where we are
Tasted blood and lust
We fought long, now we are lost

This light won't fade
This light won't fade for us

Once I've fallen down
Will you help me up
All I’m asking now
All I’m asking now
Is be kind to us
Let this light shine on your eyes

This light won't fade
This light won't fade for us
