Out of Step 03:04
let me tell you what you see in me ‘cos I don’t mind what they say anymore well you know it’s just a lie I’m sure you do you didn’t believe I’ll ever change all the drinks and all the laughs we shared all the fights now who’s to blame not a word about the past we shared with the lights out who’s to blame there’s no need for me to try to be all the things you want me to be I take my last chance and tie my boots they’re terribly worn but got a soul if I keep walking in your shoes I won’t leave no footsteps no I don’t walk in your shoes I’m out of step

My Bones 03:07
let the wind carry my bones away into the harbour into the water let them rain down from the sky above onto the fire my desire let the earth have my bones

she set up the stage when I passed by through the shady backroads of this abandoned town I wondered what she would sound like when I stepped in all the lights were dim and all the places free the owner looked up and sighed ‘finally’ what is it like to sing a song to no one after she tuned her guitar and checked the volume of the amp she took a seat right across the bar and ordered her second drink she whispered ‘thanks for coming’ I didn’t tell here I was there by chance, but asked her what is it like to sing a song to no one SHE SAID: I FEEL THE SAME ANYWAY IT FEELS LIKE THE WHOLE WORLD IS LISTENING COS THIS IS MY RNR DREAM I KEEP SINGING MY SONGS she finished her drink then took the stage the owner shouted from behind the bar ‘don’t you want to wait until more people are here ?’ she looked him straight into the eyes, and said: ‘no one else will come out tonight’ and she started to sing just for me

how do you cope with this loss my friend so far it seems you’re still you please take a step, stumble, fall into why take this so hard and make-believe don’t you see THAT YOU ARE ALREADY THERE IT’S TRUE THERE’S NO OTHER WAY now I let go and leave you be – I don’t feel not even better when I drown my fears you better get out and just breath in – this life there’s much more to life than another drink don’t you see THAT YOU ARE ALREADY THERE IT’S TRUE THERE’S NO OTHER WAY if you bury me – bury me inside out all I ever was – was this fire deep inside no I can’t see – see you around cos all you are right now is an ache in my heart
5.
I can feel time dripping on my skin I still don’t know how to cope with this they wanted me to despise you all the same I'm forever greatful now – I didn't fall for them Now I see you fought it's on your skin why did you leave I was on your side these days we try to find us all the same anger turned into sympathy – I'll never fall for them WHEN ARE YOU COMING HOME IT'S BEEN YEARS SINCE I'VE LOST MY FEARS WHEN ARE YOU COMING HOME I'M SICK OF COUNTING CARS I don't – don't know – I don't know what you think I know – how you- I know how you feel

Floods 04:09
we see these floods erasing whole towns and drag ‘em to the sea we feel their sweat on our skin when we put on our clothes we hear their screams ringing in our ears when we use our phones we scent their fear of hopelessness from our coffees to go we see them cry when they’re forced to sell their kids and in our mouthes we taste blood when we cut up their meat we hear them beg when there’s nothing left but the bones we still invest in shady major companies they act on a screen – a play so far away from here seems so unreal – I’m sure that’s got nothing to do with me SO WE WATCH THEM DYING IN HIGH DEFINITION
7.
Spare 03:31
give the people – what they want in lethal doses – this is what they want what’s the reason –for your dread it's never easy – to not give in, I'll not join in do you need this or do you try to fill a hole I’ll never understand and follow I'll take the lead no I won't follow WE CAME WITH NOTHING IN OUR HANDS WE’LL LEAVE WITH EVERYTHING IN OUR HEARTS
8.
every empty space they try to fill with rage and every word they use to sell you a dream because your tiredness is exactly what they want don’t give them anymore don’t let them consume you if you can’t stand this emptiness I guess your just afraid of yourself if you can’t bear this nothingness I guess your just afraid of yourself I seek silence I don’t want to hear them anymore
