Track Name: Winds of approaching night
Winds of approaching night – Lyrics



All our wings
Spread out for flight
All chest thrust out in pride
Whether to play or ride
Those winds of approaching night
Those winds of approaching night

In a man’s meditation
He’s lost amid all he’s made
And he stands indignation
To cast off body and trade
To cast off body and trade

We will vanish with our breath
And reach with all things to end
To clutch a lucky death
And send all our dreams to mend
And send all our dreams to mend

All our wings
Spread out for flight
All chest thrust out in pride
Whether to play or ride
Those winds of approaching night
Those winds of approaching night
Track Name: Take a seat
Take a seat – Lyrics

Don’t rush if your not coming
Don’t shout words not worth whispering
You say it not for telling
Need it to start your mending

You left this place in the nick of time
Like a bird flies to separate from winter time
Do you hear the idea shivering as it stands outside
That maybe this time you don’t need to pick a side

Come and take a seat next to me
There’s still one thing in this world that’s free
Come and take a seat next to me
I’ve been saving it for you
All of your life

We’re seven more years older
Since we started to make it over
Comfy in our selves we were then
Now we find it hard in our own skin

We left this place in the nick of time
Like a bird flies to separate from winter time
Do you hear the idea shivering as it stands outside
That maybe, this time, you don’t need to pick a side

Come and take a seat next to me
There’s still one thing in this world that’s free
Come and take a seat next to me
I’ve been saving it for you
Come and take a seat next to me
There’s still one thing in this world that’s free
Come and take a seat next to me
I’ve been saving it for you
All of your life
Track Name: If I ever did find
If I ever did find

All my memories allude me
So how am I to find
Inspiration in the water
Like pirates of my mind
In quiet desperation
I release my grip
So I might know how it feels
If I ever did find

If I ever did find
Would I know it
Would I know
If I ever did find
Would I know it
Would I know

Can I convince you to join me
Listening to the ways
The people and their stories
Play out every day
In quiet contemplation
We may find the key
So we might know how it feels
If we ever did find

If w ever did find
Would we know it
Would we know
If I ever did find
Would I know it
Would I know
If I ever did find
Would I know it
Would I know
Track Name: Step and Stumble
Step and stumble – Lyrics

Its been a long day
My feet won’t walk and my tongues dry
I need to fill my boots
So I step and stumble in an old dive
There’s a stool with my name
So I squeeze to the bar to get red eyed
Then I hear the sound
The duke box playing
While the people falling down
Their smashing tables to the ground
There’s someone shouting out

Leave me alone
There aint no way im going back home

So strike up a word
With a man without looking at his face
While the band can’t be heard
You can bet their keeping pace
Well its bottles up all round
Until the lights are slowly dimming down

And then I turned around
I realised that my hat was on fire
I was talking to a lier
My drink had expired

Leave me alone
There aint no way im going back home

Aint no way im going back home
Aint no way im going back home

Leave me alone
There aint no way im going back home
Track Name: Five more years
Five more years

Far right over there
Those suits with the neat cropped hair
Honourless gentlemen
That aint sentimental
Hold us in a regime of old
While their thirsty eyes watch the pennies flow
Any source of our lands pride
They pull it apart and sell it far and wide

We better hunker down
Five years and there will be nothing around
We better hunker down
Five years and there will be nothing around

Listen people what you done
You’ve gone and voted for the wrong one
There barely was a right way
But now your rights have gone away
Sell out or get out
Sell out or get out

We better hunker down
Five years and there be nothing around
We better hunker down
Five years and there be nothing around

Five more years
Five more years
Five more years
Track Name: Can you decide
Can you Decide


Can you decide for me

Every time I tell my feet what to do
I lie to my Shoes
And the breath that wants to scream from my lungs
Only quiets my tongue

Can you decide for me
I don’t have what it takes
Please decide for me
I’ll only make a mistake

You already know
I was never much on my own
Inside I picture your voice
Saying the words
Just come back home

I wonder to and from wander lust
I sleep where I lay
The direction back is in front
I just look away

So please decide for me
I don’t have what it takes
Can you decide for me
I’ll only make a mistake
You already know
I was never much on my own
Inside I picture your voice
Saying the words
Oh you
You already know
I was never much on my own
Inside I picture your voice
Saying the words
Just come back home
Track Name: Another Town
Another Town


I wish I could put a cloth over all their noise
Just let it settle down on their cheeky mouths
Now I can’t speak for all them boys
But im sure I can’t sing without a mouth

Coz I wont be here long
I’ve just come to play my song

I come to another town
Another I wont settle down
If it settles for me ill try not to bring it down
I try not to bring it down

Yeah im sitting here and playing in the sun
I play for you like a play for everyone
If you feel im begging take your feet and pass
But if you like them shoes sit and make them last

Coz I wont be here long
I’ve just come to play my song

I’ve come to another town
Another I wont settle down
If it settles for me ill try not to bring it down
I try not to bring it down
I try not to bring it down
I try not to bring you down
Don’t want to bring you down

You say we’ve met twice I’ve never seen you once
Well I might recognise a little further on
Cause I can’t ease my mind
Feels like their coming up behind

I run to another town
Another I won’t settle down
If you settle for me ill try not to bring you down
I try not to bring you down
I try not to bring you down
I don’t want to bring you down
I don’t want to bring you down
Track Name: Soothing Whisper
Soothing Whisper

I pulled over
To see how sincere that look was
Now made sober
By yours eyes I hide into
The cold and lonely
Is all that you left me with
Those lies you told me
Not worth the air you whispered in my ears

Your whisper soothed
I remember how your whisper soothed
Now so far from me I cannot sooth
I remember how your whisper soothed

I fell under
Your feet that tread so hard upon
My heart bursts open
And spreads out all the memories
Of when we’d spoken
Softer sounds and passion in our touch
I long for
Now so far from me I cannot feel it

Your whisper soothed
I remember how your whisper soothed
Now so far from me I cannot sooth
I remember how your whisper soothed
Your whisper soothed
I remember how your whisper soothed
Now so far from me I cannot sooth
I remember how your whisper soothed
Track Name: With draw
With Draw

Pass me the joint
I need to withdraw myself
Pass me the joint
I need to discover I’m somebody else

It feels like bruising time
In this party line
We better leave all business aside
As long we’re providing
Enough time for the biding
We squeeze the juice
Open up and the let the vibes in
Step into the slack
Their all dancing piggy back
There’s no room for gloom
In this darkened room
All you got to do
Is let the move bloom

Pass me the joint
I need to withdraw myself
Pass me the joint
I need to discover I’m somebody else

Somebody else stepped into the room
They said you can’t do what you do
He said its ok im getting old anyway
He slides the dice to his right
And he rolls away
Those pretty legs
Are wrapped around every word she said
Sending him down in a suicide twirl
And his tongue trips
Over her golden curls
Nows its time

Pass me the joint
I need to withdraw myself
Pass me the joint
I need to discover I’m somebody else

I need to, oh I need to
I need to withdraw myself
I need to, oh I need to
I need to withdraw myself
Track Name: Catching the Catcher
Catching the catcher


Every day she plays the catcher
She keeps me dangling on the line
Held in her current ever flowing
I’m sinking with her on my mind
Her bate never satisfies my hunger
But I revel in the pain on the hook
The lines held strong by my wonder
One word from her is all it took

I try to fight the desire
Not to cut myself on her wire
I’ve found a way to stay alive
Catching the catcher is the only way to survive

Plenty of fish in the sea
Flapping breathless all around me
Left with scars and no memories
But I’m sure that won’t happen to me
No there won’t be no scars on me

I try to fight the desire
Not to cut myself on her wire
I’ve found a way to stay alive
Catching the catcher is the only way to survive
I try to fight the desire
Not to cut myself on her wire
I’ve found a way to stay alive
Catching the catcher is the only way to survive

Catching the catcher is the only way to survive
Catching the catcher is the only way to survive
Catch me if you can
You better run run oh run
Catching the catcher is the only way to survive
Catch me if you can
Catching the catcher is the only way to survive

You know I’m going to catch the catcher
Track Name: Clicking needles
Clicking needles


All your time spent fashioning
Your style to a fashion
All the while nothing seems to fit
Your thread runs short

Weave your characters into tails
Hide behind handbags on the sale
Hear the sound clicking needles knitting time

Wrote the plan on a beer soaked coaster
Now in hand meanings drenched away
Accidental interruptions breaking down
Leave your mark oh so quietly stand so long
It’s a small world now my steps have grown

What you’ve done with the time that you had
Has brought you here with all that you know
What you’ve done with the time that you had
Has brought you here with all that you know

All that you know
