Track Name: The First Place
It happened before I was ever even here
I managed to be dragged into this somehow
I will not judge
It was nothing to concern me in the first place

You can choose to love or choose to not
You can stay for the hell of it or you can leave
I will not judge
It was nothing to concern me in the first place

Every story has more than one side
You can only deal with what you know at the time
I will not judge
It was nothing to concern me in the first place

I never saw you for too much of my life
Now when I see you I just see how alike we are
Lost time
Such a shame

Be careful as you go
Because the ones below
Will suffer from the bitterness
And learn the things that should be left alone
That detach us

Even when wrong I have to be right
They say that it's something to do with your pride
and it came from the thing that didn't concern me in the first place

It happened before I was ever even here
I managed to be dragged into this somehow
I will not judge
It was nothing to concern me in the first place
Though affected by the thing that didn't concern me in the first place
Track Name: Lost Your Way
The strings in the night time rang out in the ether
Waking the household and waking the neighbours
There was no stopping the untamed
Desire to feed an intangeable need

The best inspiration comes late in the night time
Through sleep depravation and time to think
How can feed that intangeable need
When the life you are living is full of routine

A lady says you lost your way
But I don't know when the wrong turn was made

Eight hour bed time and nine to five day time
Freedom at weekends and Sunday night horrors and blues
When choosing holidays, spend them wisely
Just keep your head down and get the job done
How can you ever realise dreams
When the life you are living is full of routine
The journey you're on is taking your steam

A lady says you lost your way
But I don't know when the wrong turn was made
No I don't know where the wrong turn was made
Track Name: Self Destruct
I throw things at the sky
I throw whatever is nearby
Your eyes and ears are closed to me
The door to you is closed
I'm frightened of the dark inside of you

The rings around your pale eyes, are showing truth behind the lies you tell yourself
I will walk until I'm numb
And you will sit there in the dark
I will not watch as you self destruct

I don't know why I love you
I cannot let you go

I change my mind constantly
I can never see what's in front of me
I am lost and so are you
And we don't understand each other
Regardless of love we will self destruct

I don't know why I love you
I cannot let you go
I don't know why I love you
Track Name: Grey
Dark is the feeling of the day
Lost is the spirit in your soul
Grey is the general way of the sky

Feel the world around you fall
Cry with a remedy unknown
Grey is the general way of the sky

Smile and be grateful
Listen to your guilty voices
Sweep away the dying embers
Let yourself go cold inside

Dark is the feeling of the day
Lost somehow is your way
Grey is the cloud hanging over my head

Feel the world around you fall
Cry 'cause your life is on hold
Grey is the general way of the sky

Put on a good face
Let's pretend that all is okay
Do what you have to do
Detach yourself from your emotions

Smile and be grateful
Listen to your guilty voices
Sweep away the dying embers
Let yourself go cold inside
Let yourself go cold inside
Track Name: White Lies
A woman crying in the kitchen
A man who is lost beyond himself
A child is dreaming
Silently screaming
She lived completely for another
Then I watched him run away
He was running from his demons
And the one thing he couldn't outrun

To protect me is your wish
But I begged you for the truth
Though I'd rather never hear it
Little white lies are no use

You were crying in the garden
I did not know what to do
You would always try to shelter me
There was no one to shelter you

To protect me is your wish
But I begged you for the truth
Though I'd rather never hear it
Little white lies are no use

I was sitting at the bedside
Every day I would always be on time
The weeks went by and then he passed away
What was going through his head?
Do I even want to know?
As he weakened
As he withered
Maybe he knew that he had to let go

I could see the end was coming
Though I did not want to see
When he was gone I watched you crumble
Knowing that all you had was me
Track Name: Mad Mary
Mad Mary says I should write a letter to myself
Maybe she's right
Maybe she is full of
I don't know what to do

Mad Mary says I should buy a book to help my angry side
So I gave it a try and it's sitting on the side
Collecting dust like me

It can take a long, long time
To trust the things you know
It can take a long, long time
To really trust yourself

I had that dream again last night
About the old house
And the feeling
Everything is wrong

It can take a long, long time
To trust the things you know
It can take a long, long time
To really trust yourself
Track Name: Calculator
I see the boy with the shady eyes
I think about the skin that I can't see
I wonder what's inside the wrapping paper
I want to shake the parcel

He's the boy with the shady eyes
I wish he'd turn those eyes to me
I wish he'd use his silver tongue
To whisper secrets in my ear

I want to be his calculator and he can push my buttons
And everything would just add up
With everything in multiples

I'll be your calculator
Use me for working out on
Tease me

I feel so alive when I think about us doing wicked things
All I do is fantasize
While staring at the laptop screen 'cause
You're the boy with the dangerous eyes
I would like to be alone with you
But I would be a little scared
For I believe I would be unsafe

I'll be your calculator
Use me for working out on
Tease me
Track Name: Please
I've been watching you for a while
The way you splash around, the way you dive
So nice
I come here every day
And now I feel compelled to say hello
Won't you let me stay?

On buses, in parks and alleyways, by swimming pools
I have no regret, I feel no guilt
This is what I was born to do
Watch me touch a place
That brings out scarlet in your face
Like red, red roses in the snow
Oh please

So lovely, your skin so shiny
So very pale and very white
I'm falling in love with western girls
I think about them all the time
All the time

I've been watching you for a while
Tiny bathing suits, too good to be true,
So nice
Watch me touch a place
That brings out scarlet in your face
Like red, red roses in the snow
Turns your head in deep disgust
Oh please
Track Name: Simple Dream
I am in the sea, deep and green
In a reoccurring dream
When I wake I'll be further from the shore
I've seen the green arms reaching for the sky
I've seen the salty water rushing in
I tried to find you
You had already gone

There is a girl who loves it down below
There are few who ever dare to go
All is calm beneath the stormy surface
Sometimes she's frightened by how she feels
Sometimes she says things she doesn't mean
Sometimes she flares up like a raging sea

Sometimes I am swallowed whole

There was a man who had a simple dream
To take his boat into the murky green
The vessel never made it to the water
He died with his dream
But the love of the sea passed to his daughter

Sometimes I am swallowed whole
Sometimes I am sinking

There are things that cannot be controlled
There are things we will always have to face
Track Name: Wasting Time
I hate this house
I hate the cold
I hate the mouldy windowsills
I hate the rats in the bathroom
I hate the pond in the cellar
The stagnant stench of you and me

I hate the waterfall that comes through the ceiling
I hate the emptyness that comes from your absence
The useless rage born from frustration

I don't need the stress
I don't have the time
We don't need the myther
You don't have the time either
We will only drag
Drag each other down

I have had enough
So I have to leave
Breaking down the shambles
The place that should be home
You don't understand
Maybe never will

How do I feel
I cannot say
My mind keeps wandering away
I see no reason now to stay

I don't want to fight
I don't want to hurt you
We don't need the anger
We don't need the stress
Life is very short
We are only wasting time
