Track Name: Forest Finds
FOREST FINDS

Go on river, go
You were always
on your own, you know
Take care with your luck
This time I’m not getting up

Call when you get home
getting friendly
with your answerphone
Poured away your scent
Comes rising up again

Always pushing forward
Trying to find away
Get ahead, just keep you head
Every time I face the sun
I get so blinded I could turn and run
You just carry on

Endless wasted days
Dwelling on mistakes I made
Tending to the graves
Instead of making steps to get away

Go count your neon lights
The truth serum you hide behind
Flourescent you shine
Only showing up in certain lights

I was in the forest looking
For a way to
Lead us, what was that you said
Never saw it how I kept your side
You cut me out when I pulled ahead
Someone called you out
when we were close to
Getting back on terra firma
But you never learn

I was pushing forward looking for a
Way to get ahead just keep your head
Every time face the sun I get so blinded
I could turn and run
Someone called you out
when we were close to
Getting back on terra firma
But you never learn
Track Name: No Hercules
NO HERCULES

Put on your best make-up and
Make that face again
Ready now to take the call.
Tell them that you want your medicine
And then
You’re good to go
Walking on tip-toes out the door

Talking in carousels you
Turn me round, spin me out
Your heart is heavy,
I’m no Hercules
You wear me down
I’m going back where I belong

There was a time when
Every day was cold and grey
Every conversation strained
Soon your apartment grew,
A forest round your limbs
We never spoke of it again

Turn out the lights on all your inner doubts
I never meant it like you heard
Sometimes you forget I’m no Hercules
Sometimes I don’t know where to turn

Talking in carousels you turn me round
Spin me out
I’ll pull apart before too long
Your heart is heavy I’m no Hercules
You wear me down
I’m going back where I belong
I’m going back where I belong
Track Name: That Bridge Washed Away In The Storm
THAT BRIDGE WASHED AWAY IN THE STORM

Pulled in the parking lot
Shut off the heat
Let the windows fog
Trying to sleep to again
The driver-side door for
My heavy head

I left you sleeping in
You don’t wake up all that
Easily
Tonight I cannot exscape
Circling shadows
Hung over me

I know you meant no
harm to me
You just got caught up in the stream
And no, I did nothing to help
Couldn’t help yourself and
We both know that could have been me

You wanted to be him
So bad you gave all of yourself to it
That much I know I only wish
I could shake all these dreams of it

Staring at passing cars
I could be driving right out of here
carrying all of this
A cargo of sorrow that always near

And no, I don’t blame you at all
Though you definitely played along
I have long since put it on the shelf
So forgive yourself
That bridge washed away in the storm
Track Name: Closed Sign
CLOSED SIGN

Crumbling walls
Coming down around me
Just when I thought
I was home and free

I hate the calm
The quiet of a closed sign
hung upon
The rubble of a former life

Tell me friends
I fcked it all up again
Let me family know
to clear my room
I’m coming home

the mystery of what happened
Is haunting me
Each night I try to forget it all
Each morning it’s all I can see

For now I need some how to
pull it together, the wreckage I made
Ice, come crystal in my veins
I need to be numb I need to feel nothing again

Scratch my neck
I can feel there’s trouble there
Tangled wires
Struggling to connect
If I could switch myself off
Once in a while
Maybe I’d lose the itch
to pull the plug each time I get tired

For now I need some how to
pull it together, the wreckage I made
Ice, come crystal in my veins
I need to be numb I need to feel nothing again

Can I come home
My legs are broken
my back is out
I was a fool to lose you

For now I need some how to
pull it together, the wreckage I made
Ice, come crystal in my veins
I need to be numb I need to feel nothing again
Track Name: First Night
FIRST NIGHT

Seems right now
everything has gone wrong
Kept winding up places I didn’t belong
First night on my own
Since I don’t know
Fell asleep still holding onto the phone

Never wanted it this way
couldn’t stop the seething
Rolling eyes and
Cabaret nights that
Lost all meaning

Sun down on
Ferris-wheel screams
First light and
Static on the screen
Took all day to raise a smile
Held it awkwardly for the
Longest while

Never wanted it this way
couldn’t stop the seething
Rolling eyes and
Cabaret nights that
Lost all meaning
For as long as I can tell
We’ve been at our weaknesses
Pulling at the wild thread
Picking at the stitches

But you wanted to know
What goes on in the mind
Did you forget you
Don’t know what you want

Never wanted it this way
couldn’t stop the seething
Rolling eyes and
Cabaret nights that
Lost all meaning
For as long as I can tell
We’ve been at our weaknesses
Pulling at the wild thread
Picking at the stitches
Track Name: Part Of The Plan
PART OF THE PLAN

All of sirens now come wandering
Taking up the refrain
‘Get out now before it’s too late’
Smoking a Cafe Creme
all innocent
from a window far above the street
It was enough to know your part in this parade

No I don’t believe it was
Part of the plan
You falling into this
Time was you could set
your heart on
Anything

Followed your feet back into
the fire
In a corner of California
Making a nuisance of yourself
Again
How you’re so pitted now
with sarcasm
protecting all that you love
Never enough to keep the
Wolves away

No I don’t believe it was
Part of the plan
You falling into this
Time was you could set
your heart on
Anything

Out of the wreck of
making amends to put a lid on it
You was a fool to still believe in me
I was a tough cookie to reason with
But you can be some stubborn
Sometimes I think I should
Never question it, just
Sink into a wallow-pool
Of apathy
