Track Name: Out of My Hands
Out of my Hands

Verse 1
Oh no, don’t look... don’t look at me that way
I was so lost, lost to find my way...
I live, I love, to leave you in your skin.
I’ll never go, I’ll swear to you
Leave my, leave my hands

Chorus 1
Out of my hands x2
I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough of you.

Verse 2
Oh love, don’t look; don’t look at me that way
I was in love, watched you in your skin
I live, I love, to see you when you’re cold.
Don’t go away, don’t be my fever, be my bold mistake

Chorus 2 (as above)

Bridge - instrumental

Mid 8 bass only...
Oh love, don’t look; don’t look at me that way
I want you to leave
Watch my hands unfold,
I love, not leave, to leave you when you’re cold
I love, Julie, you leave that way and I’ll be....

Chorus 3
Out of my hands
Out on my feet
I’ve had enough x 6
I’ve had enough of you.
Track Name: Chase
CHASE
nearly got away
lucky little girl
runnin through the woods
(breath) foggin' up the moon
barefoot slappin' the dirt

simple victim of circumstance
body like a fly on the wall
wearing your skin like it's evidence
careful not to show it off

make your move
fight or flea

got you by the tongue
lemme see your pearls
freckles on your face
all cinnamon and lace
suckin' on a dirty word

tiger claw like a calico
soft little scratch at the door
playing that nuke for a tic-tac-toe
won't let you win the war

make your move
trick or treat

your straight and narrow
won't spell escape
(it's) not what you know~~~
it's how you taste

holiday
caught your finger in a photograph
frozen frame with a candy cane
leave a little lick in the trap

all dressed up in your camouflage
fadin' like you done this before
sweepin' it all under the rug
walkin' through a one-way door

make your move
on your knees (or bare your teeth)

follow me
pulse slippin' to a dead man's crawl
timeless crush of a sudden touch
like a handcuffed clock on the wall

walk my way with your innocence
then i'll take you right back home
spread those stems all obedient
helping you to kingdom come
make your move
Track Name: Blackout
Blackout

Wake up … what’s wrong?
Are you having one of your turns?
Is it you that’s looking at me?
Or is it mr. d set free?

Night time .. not fun
I just turn around and play dumb
Is it me that you’re talking about
In your dreams, when you’re spaced out?

[chorus]
Spend the weekend out again
Sink the cans with all your friends
Drink til ya drown like the devil may care
Mind the gravity when you're leavin' your chair

Spin the weekend round again
Never know where it might land
Dull the edges, shoot the moon
Cos Monday will be coming soon

Hang ‘im high with your darkened mind
Depressed from the gin and red wine
Mr D is it time to play?
Wake up next morning, nooooo way

I know he’s there but I’m in denial
Embarrassed by the truth when on trial
Sick in the head or just sick in the bed
oh please remind me what i did or what I said (alt: what i just said)

Monday will be coming soon
Track Name: Little Secret
Little Secret

hi~de in the silhouette when you're brea~kin' a law
sli~de through the pearly gates, or a cra~ck in the jaw

drive all night on the medicine
(got a) gas leak foot to the floor
flatlined all of the best intentions
(leave a) body begging for more

oh ohh...

fla~me wanna radiate where the wound was sewn
tra~cin' a maze-of-fate (it's a) map of blood-in-the-snow

(said you're) karma-fucking the cavity
future fillin'-the-hole {or treasure diggin'-a-hole}
bre~ath (all) the chemicals
through a greedy gap-in-the-skull, well...

[chorus]
can ya keep it [-] our little secret
how we need it
just to keep the show on the road
so defeated, it's a weakness
sneak a treat and
feed a little needle to the bone
...
can i get a little more?
can-a-bo~dy get a little more?

hol~low head in a country, stumblin' sick on the food
swal~low the ingredients, then lay back lickin' your wounds

cock your tongue like a trigger to blow
all your bank on a cheap little thrill
ble~ed all your hunger buds on fractured sweet little pill
well

[chorus]
can ya keep it [-] our little secret
how we need it
just to keep the show on the road
so defeated, it's a weakness
sneak a treat and
feed a little needle to the bone
...
can i get a little more?
can-a-bo~dy get little more~~~~~~~ oh!

[chorus] +
..a little needle to the bo~ne
Track Name: Stares in Silence
Stares in Silence

worn by the sands age
our glasses empty but raised
to the loss
to the hour
to the tide of intended mistakes

torn by the turn of a phrase
blood stained by every page
i know that you'll see me
when you've sobered from your youth
but for now it's a waiting game

i don't know how to act
i don't know what you think
but i know you've got something to say
no matter what i give
you take your liberty
say your silence and walk away

gambled for all that i own
won every caution i've thrown
to the wind
back again
every time that she hesitates

born is a crush of the lips
licked by a cowardess
she won't make her move
until she knows she's gonna win
and her faith is only part of the play
[not really keen on that last line, but so it goes for the time being]

i don't know how to act
i don't know what she thinks
but i know she's got something to say
no matter what i give
she takes her liberty
says her silence and walks away
Track Name: Cash Cow
CASH COW
Verse1
I said I feed, a few, and either way we need the truth
I choke, on lies, of white collar crooks,
I said I’ll take, the road whatever way it turns and now
I bleed, in need, for all the means we want to be free...

I said you fight, the law, the law’ll let you off again
You thrive, with greed, a leech on the meat,
I say protest, for truth, a rat with a golden tooth
There’s rot..ten fruit, for all the pigs who roam free...

Pre Chorus
Fight or Free fall - Sink or rise tall
(There’s) Got to be more - for us to live for

Chorus
Broken by the lies you tell
While Anglo Saxons burn in hell...I rule
Tweet the news for people’s views and
burn the flags of all your social rules

Rage takes hold in every home
With bitter tones for all to show...our rules
Well this is now been said before
We don’t need to take this anymore....
Verse2
The greedy traits - that make,
the world around us - crumble to its knees,
to please - the city cats…

Run fast - To keep
The ferris wheel - A moving
Rise up -For now
Your time has come - For all the world to see...
Pre Chorus 2
Chorus 2

Outro
Broken by the lies you tell
While Anglo Saxons burn in hell
Tweet the news for people’s views and
burn the flags of social rules
Rage takes hold in every home
With bitter tones for all to show...our rules
Track Name: Soul of a Ghost
Soul of a ghost

washed out
side of the road
for him
trade all my breath and my gold

staring
can't see
where is
the love that i laid in the sheets

shame clouds
my memory
hope drags
my car through the empty street

my grief
all apology
oh tears hold
the will of the words of the weak

[chorus]
these eyes weep for the soul of a ghost
heaven help him find his way home
please return my prodigal one
i won't leave you out in the cold

bitter fruit bite part of my tongue
speechless as the road that knows
where he's gone
i will pray that he make it every day
through the great grey unknown
heed my blessing, son
Track Name: Go it Alone
Go it Alone

Verse 1:

IT’S ALL WRONG THAT KEY
SELLING ALL THAT WASTE
SELLING ON MY KNEES
PAPA TOLD ME IM FOR KEEPS

A SCENE THAT I – NEVER SEEN
CAN WE ALL HAVE PEACE

Bridge:

MOM - MY TEARS FEEL COLD
FATHERS TEARS RUN COLD

Verse 2:

MAMA BURNED ME WITH THE SHEETS
PAPA SENT ME TO THE HOLE

BUT YOU WONT LET ME – GO

ALL I CARE FOR’S MY GOLD
IS GONE FOR GOOD TO TOKYO

Mid 8

NOT MY EMILY
LEAVE MY HEAD ALONE

TAKE ME BACK
TAKE ME BACK - ON MY OWN TO YOU

TAKE ME BACK
TAKE ME BACK - OH MY EMILY…..

Track Name: No Time for Doubt
No Time for Doubt

Late nights come and you’re gone
Your choice, your chance and your charm
Blinded all in the lights, cool it all the time
No prayer come true there’s a poem

You’ll have faith
For a pocket full of pain
We’re all okay,
For a piece of faith

Chorus:

I won’t be the one who goes
And leaves our time alone
Find yourself a lover who will be --- there
Bear a true is a part today.
Bringer of the food and you believe
And I’ll will and I’ll wait for faith

Verse 2:

Where did it all begin, or call it all a sin
How old has a life, or beat it all in time
Care for two there’s a thought

So all have faith
We’re all okay,
Someone will say,
For a piece of faith

Chorus
Mid 8
Chorus

Believe
