Track Name: The Lights
I see her
In darkness she is solarised
And I see her
When the clouds come crashing
I see her in heaven

Oh the lights, the lights
Shine me down to heaven

The seers, believers
Set their souls alight
And I see them
When the lights come flashing
I see them in heaven

Shine me down to heaven
Track Name: Nameless
You call and I run
You purse your lips on my gun
You twist your iron grip
And I let loose, yeah I let loose
With sparks I wither
I bow to your desire
I kiss your velvet lips
And with grace I break your resistance
I wanna take my heart out on your face

So come on and tell me
Just come on and tell me
If anything, I ought to know your name

With motion you perspire
Your tongue, your lips on fire
I look up to the light
And I let loose, yeah I let loose
With sparks I wither
I bow to your desire
Your love is out of reach
But well within my fingertips
I wanna take my heart out on your face

The lips, the lines
Uncover, discover
Track Name: Wasted
Heaven
It ain't heaven
If I haven't your love
Prism
Your eyes are a prison
For all the colours of summertime

But the flowers will wither
As we fall and we sit here
And quietly listen
To the clatter of hangers
Swinging on their lines
Lighter by their jackets

Is it
A bliss that you missed it?
You lying there twisted
Like a vine
Enthralling
Your feathers are falling
In a shower of red and wine

And the clouds will deliver
As we fall and we sit here
And quietly listen
To the smashing on pavements
Of broken hearts
Lighter by their spirits

We walk, we walk
We run, we run
We fall, we fall
In love we love

We're wasted, we're wasted
We're wasted and young
We're wasted, we're wasted
So decidedly wasted
Track Name: In the Sun
When you can’t remember
Lying in the sun
Toes, all moist and cast in sand
And when you can’t remember
Ice and cigarettes
Caressing tired and sun-kissed glands

When you can’t remember
Ultraviolet regrets
And sunburnt silhouettes
When you can’t remember
Blinded by the dawn
It bleeds through weathered curtains worn

When you feel so cold honey

So come on let’s take off
We’ll chase the life we spoke of
‘Cause nothing else compares

When you can’t remember
Castles in distress
They rest in graves of ash and dust
When you can’t remember
Life in candlelight
And nights so warm and drenched with lust

We’ll leave it all behind
So come let’s take off
We’ll chase the sunrise
The life we spoke of
‘Cause nothing else compares
Track Name: Tonight, Tonight
Tonight, the lights will quiver
With every byte, a beat, a restless heart
A tireless hand, a shiver
A sea of white, beneath the milky twilight

No we won’t waste our time
This fire will burn again tonight

Tonight, we’ll guide our fingers
To dance across a distant universe
We fantasise in pictures
This fire will burn again tonight

Tonight, we’ll fall and we’ll sit here
We’ll watch the stars
They burn and light this fire
That rages on within us all
This fire will burn again tonight

The tired and the restless hearts, tonight
The broken and the lonesome hearts, tonight
The mindless and the wireless hearts, tonight
Tonight
Track Name: Crystal
So I'll say it out, you call and I'll deliver
I'll go long, I'll go near, I'm all-American wide receiver
But your cold heart weighs me down
Your doubts they surround
They leave crystals in my eyes

So come and hear me out

So I'll say it out, you reckless unbeliever
Your blinded eyes, those eyes, you will uncover
Let your cold heart weigh me down
Your doubts they surround
But it's crystal in my eyes

Won’t you come and hear me out?
Track Name: Astoria
Indecision’s in season
So turn up the speakers
The poisoned mouthpieces of white lies
Suck the life out of reason
The reason for living the life
And the life out of dead minds
Shut up the SDA
They’re nothing but pains in the asses
The headlines will convince the masses
To deny them their X’s

And it’s all the same old story

The conversations that contrive to conjure
A future so bleak with enforced transformation
And throw the book in the faces of those who dare question
The truths that are and are not spoken
Shut up the voices of nay
They’re nothing but ingrates and traitors
We haven’t the patience for haters
‘Cause we’re democradictators

And it’s all the same old story

But we will not be terrorised
By the threats and abuses
And we will not be mesmerised
By the lies and excuses

On the pavements, in the street lights
I’ll be waiting for you
In the garden, in the courtyard
I’ll be waiting for you
In the void decks by the stairwells
I’ll be waiting for you
On the steps of Astoria
I’ll be waiting and waiting for you
Track Name: A Way Away
I’ll never get over this
How can I when all is lost?
To find a love that’s all I would live for
And lose it all

I’ll never be whole again
And the heart is weighed with stones
And will I find some comfort in cement
And broken bones?

And the quiet candlelight
Will burn into the night
And I’ve resigned
My will to find
A way away

A way away

I’ll never be loved again
And there’s just no cause to wake
And will I find a reason for being
And not to break?

And the quiet candlelight
Will burn into the night
And I’ve resigned
My will to find
A way away

And as the stones disintegrate
In water we will wade
And as the white begins to grey
In light we’ll find a way away
Track Name: Stars
We were written in the stars
But torn apart by the bloody hands of time
And our fingers will bend
As we tear down the walls and barricades
We were written in the stars
But the heartbreak and the scars
Will never mend
We were written in the stars
But this is where for us
The story ends
Between us
Track Name: Litmus
Oh whatever you want
Whatever you need, my love
The vision arrests my heart
But the division, it tears my heart

To pieces
Like urban decline
So surely
In pieces we lie

You know that I’ll be there
As sure as the sun will forever shine
I’ll leave it all behind
I can’t feel her

Oh whatever you want
Oh whatever you need, my love
Whenever you want my heart
Whenever you want, my heart

The pieces of urban decline
The pieces of us

The molten clouds are breaking
Let’s just sit here and wait a while
The light from my heart
Will burn and dry your scarlet eyes
Track Name: Helsinki
Deny everything you know
Deny everything you need
Deny everything you seek for love
Deny everything you think
Deny everything you feel
Deny everything you will

Line the streets and light these paper hearts
In darkness we’ll always find home
Walk the path of footprints in the mud
In darkness we’ll always find home

Desire the things you know
Desire the things you need
Desire the things you seek
For what?
Desire the things you think
Desire the things you feel
Desire the love you wish to hold to keep
