Track Name: Long Way Home
Long Way Home

I don’t remember these roads
All of these shops have closed
Most of these faces
They’re still the same

If it’s sorrow that you’re looking for
Look no further
If you are listening for the wind
to call your name
You could be waiting a while

No matter how close it feels
It’s a long way home
You can try to keep it inside
But it's a long way home

What can I say?
I miss you?
Would that make it ok?
I don’t think so

No matter how close it feels
It’s a long way home
Track Name: Did You Even Notice?
Did You Even Notice?

Did you even notice the time, slipping away?
Slipping away..
Did you even notice your mind, drifting away?
Drifting away..

Where did it all go wrong?
Where did it all go wrong?

Did you even notice your mind, drifting away?
Drifting away..
Did you even notice the time, slipping away?
Slipping away..

Where did it all go wrong?
Where did it all go wrong?
Track Name: Deliverance
Deliverance

Working for pittance
but I get my smoke
Talk of dreams
you know I wrote that joke

Hit the local
for the usual scoops
Rolling some and talking some
The breeze we shoot

It won’t always be like this
One day we will get our deliverance

In early for my sins
Day filled with blank stares
Light penetrates through the eyelids

It won’t always be like this
One day we will get our deliverance

Trawling through
endless waves
To find there is
no shore

They say the heart gives the spirit wings
Track Name: Holding
Holding

Tired bones fed my natures blood flow
From the rivers to the sands
I am merely a leaf falling
and searching for a place to land

Work the night
shift into the hours
to emerge a ghostly soul
devoured

Broken hands scrapping the gutters
Delayed all plans for the lives of others
You want to scream from deep within
But you can’t breathe you just keep holding

Fear is on the inside
another state of mind
I see it in the darkness
I see it in the light

Hope is but a vIrtue
with patience by its side
Re-discovering what you already knew
but you lost over time

Ask to take moment
to reflect before its gone
I hope you hear these words
for this is not a.. song

Broken hands scrapping the gutters
Delayed all plans for the lives of others
You want to scream from deep within
But you can’t breathe you just keep holding
Track Name: Fountain of Youth
Foutain of Youth

Looking out
over a sea of distress
Holding on
with nothing in my hands

That break in your heart
feels like it'll never mend
The mind can overcome
if you give it a chance

Trying so hard
to reach that prize
Life becomes a thousand yard stare
in someone else's eyes

The clouds clear, the spirits rise
Channel that fear into a positive cry
This fountain of youth is running out of water

Last night is a haze
from a dream you knew
Shallowness is found
in every fool

The stain glass
appears to be cracked
Another illusion
like the lord coming back

The clouds clear, the spirits rise
Channel that fear into a positive cry
This fountain of youth is running out of water

The drips slip through
You're bound to be found
They'll trace your steps
From the core to the mouth

There's no escaping
Track Name: Laid to Waste
Laid to Waste

Old rats, new ship
So this is what it feels like
to be stranded on it..

Miracle to my eyes
Another key
to the answer inside

Is it something invisible
that you chose to believe?
See my reflection in a window
But I don’t recognise what I see

Tear in the flesh
Blood from the mouth
Let’s see you dig yourself out

Build it up just to tear it down
Parasites have a field day underground

Is it something invisible
that you chose to believe?
See my reflection in a window
But I don’t recognise what I see

Mirror to mirror
Dust to dust
Blanket of rememberence
From the core to the cusp
Your worrying will suck you dry
Until you’re laid to waste
Under and endless sky

We’re all laid to waste
Track Name: In Reverse
In Reverse

The gravel beneath the tyres
is creeping outside the caravan
Awake on the floor, folks next door
in the kitchen drinking
Falling asleep to the laughter
And the glasses clinking

The patterned curtains
The rain against the pane
The memories that never leave
They just sit in the back room
Gathering dust never sinking

I miss the values, that today, seem to me
Left by the wayside
Waiting for a helping hand
To pick them up and understand
The touch, the feeling, the belonging..

The patterned curtains
The rain against the pane
The memories that never leave
They just sit in the back room
Gathering dust never sinking

Just a life lived in reverse
I’ll never forget her words
Are you happy son?
