Track Name: Glass Jars
Glass Jars

Don’t you ever wonder?
Don’t it cross your mind?
If there might not be some part of us, somehow
That gets left behind?
Pressed against some cyclone fence
Weeds all through the beds
Some thought lost, caught in Atlantis -
Self Storage sheds

Ordered in aisles
All locked up in Grids
the days are like jars
With holes punched in the lids
Oh my love
The circuitry is so well hid
We lower our eyes
Without realising it
There’s a bottleneck of serpents That wasn’t there before

You say one thing and seem to mean
A whole lot more
I can feel it in the pauses
The advance of designs
You got your uniform
And baby I got mine

Ordered in aisles
All locked up in Grids
the days are like jars
With holes punched in the lids
Oh my love
The circuitry is so well hid
We lower our eyes
Without realising it

Barrelling down the line,
handles rock like masks dropped for oxygen
I blink my eyes -
and oh, here we go again

Ordered in aisles
All locked up in Grids
the days are like jars
With holes punched in the lids
Oh my love
The circuitry is so well hid
We lower our eyes
Without realising it
Track Name: Runaway
Runaway

Ooh baby let’s runaway
Runaway with me
I swear they won’t find us
I promise you’ll see

Somewhere out across the night
over oceans and seas
Somewhere where our tangled knot
it could finally slip free

Somewhere where the rivers run
Where they dance in their dreams
Somewhere where the greedy reach
Of this world’s never been

Ooh baby let’s runaway
Runaway with me
I swear they won’t find us
I promise you’ll see

Outside smoking cigarettes
On the crates by the stairs
The waiters caught our stand off
And went back to stack chairs

And night after night
Trains are screaming like Eels -
Press suburban dreams
Underneath dark wheels

Ooh baby let’s runaway
Runaway with me
I swear they won’t find us
I promise you’ll see

Maybe things didn’t turn out
Like the way we had planned
I know it had been building up for so long
it’s sad it had to come out that way
it’s sad it had to come out that way
Track Name: Plimsoll Grove
Plimsoll Grove

A clear morning
Like any other
Crisp, breathless
Bombardier blue
we were headed nowhere special then on the radio came a song
And I thought about his arms
Like they were reaching
Through sleeves of time
And I thought about his eyes
And the way they used to smile

Oh - How could I know it would churn me so
The world out the windscreen slowed
I just stared -
That song on the radio
Oh it drove
Oh it drove
Me back to Plimsoll Grove

You know I always loved the way
You’d drop your clothes to the floor
With such casual ceremony
And when I said I loved you it was true
That much was true
And now so
If you say there’s no future
For us - don’t even get in touch
If you wanna cut it off
Well if that’s the way that its got to be
Well then that's how it will be

Oh - How could I know it would churn me so
The world out the windscreen slowed
I just stared -
That song on the radio
Oh it drove
Oh it drove
Me back to Plimsoll Grove
Track Name: Barbarossa
Barbarossa

Wired - a riot -
Almost 4:19
Baskets of vipers -
I know just what it means
Cold premonition
I know I cannot leave
Or outrun this feeling
Stealing over me
Where I go - It follows
Where I go - It follows

I recognise it
Sure as I inhale
Try to ignore it -
But to no avail
Your love - bearing down
Certain to prevail
Like some Barbarossa
Pressing with full sail
Where I go - you follow
Where I go - you follow

And then when I surrender
My head to dreams
I only fall into your arms again

Dead Calm.
Not a single
Breath of wind for weeks
Tearing the colour
All out of my cheeks
Inside my head
Its beating like a drum
Pounding - Blood Music
Rum pah rum pah rum
Ooh babe - you’re grinning
Like a ragged row of ships
A looking glass love
It rankles and it whips
Guns nestled in the mist
Riding on the rail
Like some Barbarossa
Pressing with full sail

Where I go - It follows
Where I go - It follows
Track Name: Thought We Turned A Corner
Thought We Turned A Corner

Thought we turned a corner babe
I really believed it
Had the whole world in front of us - oh!
Three apples on a silver tray
Got to thinking we’d be alright
Troubles wouldn’t find us no more..
Spent whole afternoons honey
Organising all my drawers

But here you are again
Bringing salt for my wounds
A deadly nightshade baby
Arms like vines for a tomb

That evening in the foyer babe
Well was that really you?
Diamonds swallowed diamonds honey
Voices bounced across the room
Ran a finger ‘cross the deerskin hide - oh
Pressed my glove against your nose
Then you slowly shook your head babe
And the elevator doors slid closed

But here you are again
Bringing salt for my wounds
A deadly nightshade baby
Arms like vines for a tomb

So come on and do something -
Cos this ain’t love - this ain’t loving
It’s not enough - what you’re giving
This ain’t love - no this ain’t loving

Decorated days in front of us oh!
Now what am I supposed to do?
Your feet don’t know which way they’re pointed
And I’m left lacing up your shoes
Ooh your magic carpet ride honey -
Unravelling thread by thread
I thought we turned a corner baby
You know I really did
Track Name: Leftover Prayers
Leftover Prayers

Ooh I feel like I’m coming apart
There’s a hole where there should be a heart
And it grows
And grows

Like a sleepwalker lost on a road
I can’t tell you just where I go
I don’t know
I don’t know

Baby I’ve been covering the cracks
Oh but darling what’s the use in that?

Its a poison to my own ear
I end up saying just what you want to hear
And it shows
It shows

And when you sniffed at the edge of the park
‘Music’s for those still afraid of the dark’
Well I froze
I just froze

Baby I’ve been covering the cracks
oh but darling what’s the use in that?

there’s a fork in the road
there’s a knife in my side
the world rolls into each new day
But all -
I feel -
Is free fall

I’ve been trying to see it your way
But if you got any last words to say
Say them
Say them

Leave a rose at the foot of the stairs
If you got any leftover prayers
Pray them
Pray them

Baby I’ve been covering the cracks
oh but darling what’s the use in that?
