Track Name: October
October

Blow away your
Summer like a child
Kingdom come alive
With the morning fields
Night has hidden
Too much from your eyes
Rest your near-death wings
For a little while


Enough of fairy tales
Oh no, they won't come true
Away with promises
Oh no, they do no good
You want your starry night
Give up your roof
Best I know I've done
Oh no, no more to do


Winter come in close
Show me where you've been
Golden river stones
No one could doubt
Witness for me now I have no faith
Stitch me in my clothes
That I might stay


Sped my way through venomed veins
Just passing through
Held you like a stranger then
And I still do
Made yourself a crooked road
To lead you on
Stymied lines of weathered walls
To call your home


Left October looking for it's keys
Carving faces into the mantelpiece

Enough of fairy tales
Oh no, they won't come true
Away with promises
Oh no, they do no good
You want your starry night
Give up your roof
Best I know I've done
Oh no, no more to do
Track Name: Heavy Hander
Heavy Hander

Eyes are made of glass
Firmly hold me fast
Wrecking all my innocent
And flawed advances
Feet to blame this time
Better that than wine
And balance isn't balancing
I must be tiring

Come away you
Heavy Hander
Give me back my
Summer sun
Come away you
Rolling, rolling rock

Taste the burning ash
Wooden hopes are dashed
Upon the rocks that
Eat their way into the
Crashing waves
Are washing over me
Forth and back to sea
Someday I will
Think of all your
Health with envy

Come away you
Heavy Hander
Give me back my
Summer sun
Come away you
Rolling, rolling rock
Track Name: Call If You Need Me
Call If You Need Me

The masters of accidents
Tighten the screw
In the presence of any old
Person will do
The pining of winds
In the forgotten woods
Remind me of how to be good
Through and through

No collar on you
No address to be called at
When rivers are drained and
Your confidence bled
May the forces within you
Well serve when you most
Need them to

Call me unfaithful
For thinking of home
Call me a coward
For living alone
Said ‘Call If You Need Me
You can’t always be on your own’

Combed into fibres as
So many mites
Made their house of my skin
As I slept one night
Felt the strangeness of
Sorrow when
No-one else sees it in you

Call me unfaithful
For thinking of home
Call me a coward
For living alone
Said ‘Call If You Need Me
You can’t always be on your own’
Track Name: Loose Canon
Loose Canon

Left myself to doubt
Paris is caving in
Cold-sided, calm
There’s no saving him

Mercy me, I’ve been a restless one
Tied a tether to a rising sun
Made a pact with a loose canon
Let me come undone

Nothing else will do
You’re nervous, don’t let it show
Outwards as cowards do
Let a confidence start to grow
A place to be understood
A cape to be covered in
Wrote from self to self
A truth to be uncovering

Mercy me, I’ve been a restless one
Tied a tether to a rising sun
Made a pact with a loose canon
Let me come undone
Track Name: Avenue Blues
Avenue Blues

Stepped out into the rain
Felt the water seeping in
There was something in
The way the sky looked wasn’t right
Never mind, better take myself
Off in a suit
I was on my best behaviour
The whole day through

Is nothing ever wrong with you?
I swear we cut our teeth on the same avenue
Is nothing ever wrong with you, or
Do you just see it through?

Spit blood from my tongue
Don’t remember the bit
Pin tails on the last ones
I can recall
Wonder where you went next
Where you moving away?
Thunder rolls and the dark comes
Swelling around the day

Is nothing ever wrong with you?
I swear we cut our teeth on the same avenue
Is nothing ever wrong with you, or
Do you just see it through?
Track Name: Know Your Strength
Know Your Strength

By the time you’ve
Drawn behind
May your luck be safe
Don’t go back to innocence
Buried fit to break

Go home you wanderer
Get back where you left
Call on the animals
Your sorry bones to set

I didn’t sail away
I didn’t miss my moment
Pulled back by the reigns
Fixed up again to be broken

Go on you barrow boy
Get up off your knees
Don’t go embarrassing
You make a mighty steed

You say you don’t know
Your strength
Something you’ve been
Meaning to test
Think of where your
Courage went
Buried deep in your chest

Some days you
Think of what you’re missing
Try not to care at all
Some days you
Think of what you could have been
Try not to think at all
Track Name: Call Off The Hunt (Bonus Track)
Call Off The Hunt

Sticking to your guns, always
Never fails to get you in a
fighting strait
Armoured up in shields and plates
No prisoners
Terrible ascent to the top
Of your game
Left you with a dizzy head
Cornered by the path you led
Never climbing again

The sooner it comes
Oh, the sooner it's gone
Never get the ghost
No sign of a surface
To settle upon
Call off the hunt from
Another to one
Begged, bought and sold
No sign of a ceasefire
So carry on

Picking at your meals
So bored of the same
Colourless and carbon-framed
bleached out all the pages
All part of the game
In an empty vault given up
To the stacks
Hope it never comes to that
The day you need your
Old tapes back
Oh, sorry day

The sooner it comes
Oh, the sooner it's gone
Never get the ghost
No sign of a surface
To settle upon
Call off the hunt from
Another to one
Begged, bought and sold
No sign of a ceasefire
So carry on
Track Name: Talk Not (Bonus Track)
Talk Not

I gave
You the cover
Of a night
Cold and clear
I left
All my riches
To the dogs
In the fields

Talk not
Of your hunger
Talk not
Of your needs
There is
Only so much
Light of day
This time of year

Storms
At the window
Make warmer
The fireside
I’m
In the kitchen
Keeping out
Of the firing line

Talk Not
Of the strangers
That have
Crowded your mind
There is
Only so much
Coal in the mine

Started out with
An open answer
Questions
Leading to it’s breath
Gathered up in
Wicker shell
As every day must end

Talk Not
Of your hunger
Talk not
Of your needs
There is
Only so much
Light of day
This time of year
Track Name: Give Me A Horse (Bonus Track)
Give Me A Horse

Give me a horse and
I’ll give it grass
To feed on the winter long
Give me a horse and
I’ll keep it strong
For you to ride upon

Loan me your hopes and
I’ll see them right
And paint their sides anew
Loan me your hope and
I’ll seem them thrive
Til they’re good enough
For you

Forget me now
My bruised love
The echoes of my voice
For get me now
My touch has cooled
My last words are lost
In the noise

And think of me
As dead and gone
If you think of me
At all
Think of me
As you think of one
Who just aint around
Anymore

And give me a horse
And I’ll give it grass
To feed on the winter long
Give me a horse and
I’ll keep it strong
For you to ride upon
For you to ride upon
