Track Name: Heart Fit to Burst
The tiny whine
Of August skies
The stage is set
But this summer can’t last
We’ll be back soon
Wait in the car
If you get hot
Just wind the window down

Outside
People are mirages
Going about all of their business
Look and
You can see their shadows
But you won’t see
Where it is they go

I miss
You all
Later
I’ll miss you more
Heart fit
To burst
Guess that’s
What it’s for

The ceiling dots
Arrange themselves
Into lines
Just for fun
They mark the place
Where (if you like)
A tin-opener
Could let in the sky

Outside
People are mirages
Going about their pretend business
Look and
You can see their shadows
But you won’t see
Where it is that they go

I miss
You all
Later
I’ll miss you more
Heart fit
To burst
Guess that’s
What it’s for
Track Name: Polaroid
(one by one
fade reverse
polaroid)

A chemical reveal
The only time you’ve been pinned down
And what was found
Was that your love
Was made to fade

Straighten up your memory
Capture it in 3 by 4
Find out what that heart is for
Fading in

(the look before she meant it
right before she meant it
now it’s never ending
polaroid)

So hard to put in words
You shed some light
upon the matter
but by the time
the image came
the story changed

Here’s the man I used to be
Capture it for old time’s sake
Taken as the heart breaks
Taken as the heart breaks

Straighten up your memory
Capture it in 3 by 4
Find out what that heart is for
Fading in
Track Name: Warpybird
Four to the floor
And the birds
In the trees
Sing your name
You rewind
All the things
That you knew
Before

There
Is a word for this
Feeling
Not
That it matters
Too much
You’re
in the deepest
Of focus
Not
That you’re
Focussed
At all
As such

Drained of all fear
Hands in the air
Every note
Every beat
Miles Apart
And your heart
Like the tide
Going in
And out
Track Name: Cut Down the Middle
She is two people

Cut down the middle

Don’t talk about anything much

She is two people

Cut down the middle

Don’t talk about anything much

You don’t understand 
I’ve been here before
You don’t understand I’ve been here

You don’t understand I’ve been here before

You don’t understand I’ve been here

There is no centre

There is no secret

There is no switch to be thrown

There is no reset

There is no enter

There is no fuse you can blow

You don’t understand 
I’ve been here before
You don’t understand I’ve been here

You don’t understand I’ve been here before

You don’t understand I’ve been here


She has a memory

Something important

Something you cannot recall

She is two people

Now it’s essential

Next it won’t matter at all
You don’t understand 
I’ve been here before
You don’t understand I’ve been here

You don’t understand I’ve been here before

You don’t understand I’ve been here


Now you’re a memory

Now you’re past perfect

Now you’re a verb she can own

Now you’re a short cut

But it was worth it

Scissors, paper and stone


Track Name: Everyone Down
No end
of blame
say
your name

What do they know
The voices in your head
Switch them off
Do something else instead
The ocean sounds
The stars descending
It’s never done
It’s never ending
It’s all a ruse
A provocation
We all get down
Across the nation
Say your name
Say your name
Track Name: Lonely End of the Dancefloor
Fireflies
you fireflies
and I'm watching from the dark

Your fire is gone
in seconds
and your light is just a spark

It’s nothing like
a circuit
and it’s nothing like a bomb

We stand apart
we dance apart
and we try to get it wrong

You're moving round
like clockwork
you all dance like a machine

you're coiled up
to breaking
your escapement is the beat

all hands up to
the ceiling
all four down to the floor

but over here
it's not so clear
and we try to get it wrong

welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor
welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor
welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor
welcome to the lonely end of the dancefloor
Track Name: AWOL
Open / shutter / let the / light in / what use / what use / ending / listing / back off / leave it / it’s not / worth it / come on / come on / come on / come on

So say the end won’t trouble you
Say it’s soon come
To fall away right under you
Split like pack ice

The earth stops spinning under you
Nothing doing
The sun will switch off and it’s
No surprise at all

Back off / Leave it / It’s not / Worth it / Come on / Come on / Soon come / Out line / One line / One star / Star to / Star to / Star to / Who are you / Who are you?

If I were
An astronaut
I’d herd the stars
And pen them all
And spell it out
In words of fire
A thousand light years
Side to side:

Who the fuck
Is God to claim
I’ll go to hell
For what I say?
You’re not lost
You’re just offside
You’re not sad
You’re just alive.
Track Name: Stitch
You are a jail
You are a prosecution
I am the hand
You are the arm
And I’ve done wrong
The premise that we’re working from
Is that it’s you
Who’ll stitch me up
And I’d like you
To stitch me up
Oh bring it on
The Judas kissing contest
Oh let it come
The quiet knife
Just get it right
It’s you and me at dead of night
You’ve got a chance
To stitch me up
I really hope
You’ll stitch me up
Let’s drink to us
The fallen and outnumbered
Let’s raise a glass
The old team
We once were grand
We really had the upper hand
Until you chose
To stitch me up
I’m glad it’s you
Who’ll stitch me up
We’re all alone
We are the sole survivor
I know the ropes
You’ve all the charm
And there’s a time
to flatter and disarm me
and there’s a time
to stitch me up
and now’s the time
to stitch me up
Track Name: Getting in my Way
Close your eyes and hold my hand –
Patron saint of one night stands
Hear us now and cast your light upon us

Every stare and every smile
Every call you in a while
Call you in a day or two I promise

And if we’re only lovers
And not the best of friends
How come I keep seeing
Seeing you again
The Universe expands
From day to day
How come you keep getting
Getting in my way
