Track Name: Oldest Friend
Oldest Friend

And I call you my friend, my oldest friend, my oldest friend
And I call you my friend, my oldest friend, come back again
And I called you at the end, you at the end, my broken friend
And I saw your hidden eyes, your hidden eyes, your cold surprise
You’re holding five
And of all the broken plans, you broke them all and took the fall
And hope I realise is a whole new game, when you take the blame
When you lose your faith
And I call you my friend, my oldest friend, my broken friend
Your perfect end, my oldest friend
Track Name: Down To The Valley
Down to the Valley

I’m going down to the valley won’t you take a ride with me
And I’m gonna take all they offer, roll it up and hold it all in
I’m going out to the city, won’t you take a ride with me
And I’m gonna take all they offer, throw it up and take it again
I am not the one you seek, I am not the one you seek
Says a slave to its master
I’m going down to the valley won’t you take a ride with me
And I’m gonna take all they offer, to hide the empty way I feel
I am not the one you seek, I am not the one you seek
I am not the one you seek
Says a slave to its master
Track Name: Coming Home
Coming Home

Home I’m coming home, and you’ll be there too
And I am with you, and you’re with me, you’re with me
And the shadow that surrounds you, the shadow surrounds me
And I am with you, and you’re with me, you’re with me
I will go, where you wanna go, I will grow, where you wanna grow
I will go, where you wanna go, I will grow, where you wanna grow
Home I’m coming home, and you’ll be there too
And I am with you, and you’re with me, you’re with me
Track Name: You're So Pretty
You’re So Pretty

I knew you were the one from the start
By the way that you could make me laugh, Just by the look on your face
From the start, you’re my heart, and you’re so pretty
What had me was the way you are, So much like me, but so bizarre
And you fill in all the holes in me, Cause’ you’re bizarre, you’re my heart
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart
Your smile is like the brightest star, Shining out on a sea of dark
Breaking through the delusions I see
You’re my star in the dark and you’re so pretty
You’re my star in the dark and you’re so pretty
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so pretty
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so pretty
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart, and you’re so
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so pretty
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so pretty
I knew you were the one from the start
By the way you know you make me laugh, Just by the look on your face
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so pretty
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so pretty
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so pretty
You’re bizarre, you’re my heart and you’re so
Track Name: I Don't Know My Name
I Don’t Know My Name

I’m goin’ to the country I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name
I’m goin’ to the country I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name
Livin’ in the country you don’t need no time no locks no keys no fuckin’ shit of any kind
Cause’ I would live a thousand years in the cold and rain, in the cold and rain, just to have no name
I’m goin’ to the country I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name
I’m goin’ to the country I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name
And I will stay out here until the day I die with my old dead smile on the day I die
Cause’ I would rather live a life I get to choose than live a life of privilege but with everything to lose
I’m goin’ to the country I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name
I’m goin’ to the country I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name, I don’t know my name
Hey, oh lets get out, oh lets get out, outta’ here
Hey, oh lets get out, oh lets get out, outta’ here

Hey, oh lets get out, oh lets get out, outta’ here
Hey, oh lets get out, oh lets get out, outta’ here
Hey, oh lets get out, oh lets get out, outta’ here
Hey, oh lets get out, oh lets get out, outta’ here
Track Name: Leave The Light On
Leave the Light On

Late at night I see you talking, to yourself like you want them to
Then you scream at all the choices that have broken you before
I see you cry while you are smiling, cause’ there’s a creature eating you alive
And then at night while we are sleeping, you stare awake, at the light switch
And you can’t move to fight the monster, cause’ you are shackled by your fears
And I saw you leave the light on, And I saw, you left it on
And I saw you leave the light on, And I saw, you left it on
But you’ll be alright, if you face the night and just fuck your pride
And I saw you leave the light on, And I saw, you left it on
And I saw you leave the light on, And I saw, you left it on
Track Name: Liars At Night
Liars at Night

We’re liars at night, we’re perfect at dawn, And we cry all the
time but we don’t taste our tears
But you know how to leave
And now the hours they pass and you live without fear
But you didn’t no you didn’t plant your tree
In the garden you made to sow you fears away
When, when I’m alone there’s a shadow within
When I’m trying to catch the restless part in me
But I’m stuck between the truth for me and who I want to be
But you know how to leave
And now the hours they pass and you live without fear
But you didn’t no you didn’t plant your tree
In the garden you made to sow your fears away
To sow your fears away
Track Name: Get High
Get High

I get high just to feel the ride without the trouble of the truth
That way I don’t feel the pain I’m talkin’ bout suburban blues
Leave town cause’ its closin’ in and I blame it on society
I feel a prickle cuttin’ through my mind and a storm formin’ deep within
I feel restless in my skin and I know it’s wearin’ thin
Ohhhhhh and it breaks me down, Ohhhhhh and it breaks me down
They said, take a look at what you’re running from
Or it might run away from you
Then one day down the line I’ve only got a single point of view
And I might load my gun but I’m only gonna point it at the things I love
Ohhhhhh and it breaks me down, Ohhhhhh and it breaks me down
Ohhhhhh and it breaks you down, And we break down
But normal life is quite boring, Normal life is quite boring
Normal life is quite boring, Normal life
And I follow you into the desert, Into strange gardens
And we talk about the furniture, Like it’s our soul
Ohhhhhh and it breaks me down, Ohhhhhh and it breaks me down
I get high just to feel the ride without the trouble of the truth
That way I don’t feel the pain, I’m talkin’ bout suburban blues
Track Name: Master's Home
Master’s Home

Some people seem to know when the door is open and the master’s home
And those people seem to talk to people they meet in a language they speak
But don’t worry it’s all fine, except perhaps the state of your conscious mind
But I’m with you I guarantee but how much help can my blank mind be?
When fear controls you, when all you can control is fear
It’s all you can control
But does the haze, get thicker, every time you get near, to a truth you’d face
But you’re strangled by fear
And time’s holding your life is sand and it’s slippin’ through avoidable hands
That freedom lingers but the slave in you is the only one who knows
Illusions you chose
Fear controls you, when all you can control is fear
I said fear controls you, when all you can control is fear
Track Name: Staring Into Darkness
Staring Into Darkness

I spend so much time staring into darkness
While the people all around me fall asleep
You fall asleep at the wheel of life,
When you wake from your dreams you fall on your knife
And you crawl to your knees in the cold and you scream
This darkness is drinking the soul out of me
I spend so much time staring into darkness
While the people all around me fall asleep
And as the years meander by I lose my sense of self to the night
And wake up one day still asleep
