Track Name: I Got Turned Around in Here
We waste every day, count me out because nothing’s changed.
Jump ship, capsize, reappear in centre-frame.
Let's search for a story, I need something to follow.
You wait for a landmark where nothing ever changes.

No words. Words won't escape me from this grief. 
No light. Light only haunts my relief.
Now I need a lock, I need a key for a secret I've learned,
every moment we shout and scream and shatter and break

I've no poetic way, I've no poetic way to say give in to fate, no not yet

Like dying by candlelight
or something forever

We waste every day
Count me out, nothing’s changed
Let's find out where we are

Just a glance and spark of the mind's eye to cause a distraction
while the secret shouts and screams then breaks.
Let's find out where we are before it's too late
Track Name: A Single Word

It's gone on far too long to be a joke. It's gone on far too long.

It's all happening here and now
 but I'm trying to leave.
I studied the digits and printed the figures for you to keep .

The first signal was incomplete then the documents got leaked
.
I want nothing to do with it anyway,
 I lack faith in this company
.


You’re insufferable.
From a single word you go ahead and expect the world.


It's the right shape but the temperature has thrown the hue off balance.
When you see it you'll understand.
Now the dream that was held so dear is crooked beyond recognition.

I thought it was perfect but not today, I lack faith in this company.
Track Name: Change Your Ways
I’m thinking out loud. I’m you, some years from now. Stop what you’re doing.

The words from my mouth are now thoughts in your head so before you know it, I’ve changed your mind.

Wow. This is a quality control: change your ways or you’re on your own.
You’re right on track to being ignored by someone else.
Change your ways or you’re on your own.

We’re in in the same boat and I’ve been keeping track. If we get lost, I’ll be the first to know.

Then a sudden breakthrough, this will save us all time so you just stay and I’ll move on.
Track Name: Paused on a Crossfade
Time doesn’t tick away, it ticks towards
Closer to the point of loss.
Bad luck sealed with a punch
But there’s no alarm
It just happens, we accept, then it starts again.

This time you couldn’t resist
Steal hearts and souls.
One chance you shouldn’t miss
This was your goal.
But if you really wanna feel complete get down on your knees, let go of your dreams, admit defeat

I’ve heard it all before, hot air is getting old.
Don’t think it’s worth it anyway.
My views have changed but I’ve stayed the same.
I’ve got the upper hand either way.

This time you couldn’t resist
Steal hearts and souls
One chance you shouldn’t miss.
Heard it all before.
You’ve changed, I’ve stayed the same, I’m so sure of it.
Either way I’ve got the upper hand, admit defeat
Track Name: The Issue
every day writing to myself
there’s a pattern to the words
morning noon and evening it’s the same
saying nothing writing verse

hair will bleach / skin will burn
sun will reach / supernova
damage done / damage done
all follow / the pattern

let’s dissolve / history
we give in / we live free
damage done / damage done
all follow / the pattern

I’m sick of talking, I’m tired of writing around the issue.
Cover to cover, front to back, valid 'til yesterday.

false fortune fading fame
at this rate of decay
damage done / damage done
all follow / the pattern

People below a certain threshold might lose their minds in the struggle.
I’ll just sit on the edge of the world that’s left and let my words grow old.

old news still true, I won't let go.
I won’t go home, let my words grow old tonight.
Track Name: Stoked
You might start, you might stop.
Shut down, declare a loss.
You never know when you might choke.
You’ve gotta keep that fire stoked.

You never know when the place you feel alive can rip itself out of your hands. See how we back you up, we’ll back you up again.

The wait, the hurt, the chaos, the cost.
We fear for all the time we’ve lost.
You never know when you might choke.
You’ve gotta keep the fire.

Awake, alert. We’re rolling, progress.
Advance your cause, surpass your friends.
You always know when it’s time – punctuate your life.

You never know when the place you feel is yours will start to tear itself apart. See how we’re centered now, it’s not too hard.

It’s taken years for me to reach conclusions others failed to teach.
To some extent you could be anywhere, when you’re alone you’re still complete.

The wait, the hurt, the chaos, the cost.
We fear for all the time we’ve lost.
You never know when you might choke.
You’ve gotta keep the fire.
Keep that fire stoked.
Track Name: Waiting to Happen
You could be something. You could be something to change us both, but you’re still waiting.

I remember where I was when you lost control.
You know what you are now, you’re one of us.
You walk in circles with the moonlight on your skin.
I watch the candle melt all night and you have nothing to say again

What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for?
You’re a revolution waiting to happen.

Don’t try and stare me down when I’m looking up.
Every human / wild animal deserves to leave a mark.
Don’t try and be both or anything else.
You know what you are now, you’re one of us.

Stop wasting, we’re in a rush.
We’re hungry, don’t hold us up.
You stand in silence with the sunshine in your brain.
Wait for the moon to rise all day, you have nothing to say again.

Stop waiting to happen.
