DAY AND AGE
2021

DAY AND AGE

He’s counting down the days in tedious grey charades
The truth still hangs on the wall when pride comes before a fall

Who am I?

In answer to your question, you won’t know now
Turning the lights out and closing the windows, just wasting your way off this world

We’re living in a dying age
When the writing’s on the wall
And we’re burning with a quiet rage
This is the day and age

He tries to fight his pride, but something sticks deep inside
And as this fire builds, he stands here perfectly still

Who am I?

I’m gonna be somebody, I’ve nothing left to lose
Stand in the spotlight assume your positions, you’re gonna remember me now

We’re living in a dying age
When the writing’s on the wall
And we’re burning with a quiet rage
This is the day and age

And if I told you sooner,
My statement of intent,
I’m living in the dark light,
There’s nothing left to say now,
This world has lost all sense

TERRESTRIAL

In the window of this world
I am singular of vison in my purpose
As the hours pass so slowly and seem worthless

I can see
I can see further
I can see
I can see further now

Staring out to sea
Solitude in motion with new meaning
Hiding in the half light, holding out till sunrise
Staring back at me
Quiet desperation this time frozen
Never knowing what’s out there

In the corner of my eye
As the truth becomes a test of my resistance
Softened into silence by the distance

I can see
I can see further
I can see
I can see further now

Staring out to sea
Solitude in motion with new meaning
Hiding in the half light, holding out till sunrise
Staring back at me
Quiet desperation this time frozen
Never knowing what’s out there

Staring out to sea
I can see further
Hiding in the half, holding out till sunrise
Staring out to sea
I can see further
Never knowing what’s out there


In the window of this world
I am singular of vison in my purpose
As the hours pass so slowly and seem worthless
I’ll never see your face again
I’ll never hear your voice again
So worthless

Staring out to sea
Solitude in motion with new meaning
Hiding in the half light, holding out till sunrise
Staring back at me
Quiet desperation this time frozen
Never knowing what’s out there

Staring out to sea…

WAITING FOR THE LIE

Tactical compliments
Time honoured systems of touch
Methods of self preservation
To escape when it all gets too much
These are the games that we play
While we’re waiting for the lie

Literal armament
I’ll stick to my stones
We imagine the shape of the danger
And decide that we’re better off alone
These are the things that we say
While we’re waiting for the lie

When you find that you’ve nowhere to hide
We’re all waiting for the lie
The truth is so undignified
We’re all waiting for the lie
We all carry the guilt
We’re all waiting for the lie

When you know you’ll be breaking their heart
We’re all waiting for the lie
The deception is part of the art
We’re all waiting for the lie

When it’s time to apportion the blame
We’re all waiting for the lie
The excuses will all be the same
We’re all waiting for the lie

Whenever the government speaks
We’re all waiting for the lie
Instead of the truth we should seek
We’re all waiting for the lie

Whenever you open your mouth
We’re all waiting for the lie
Without any shadow of doubt
We’re all waiting for the lie

These are the things that we say
These are the things that we say

 

THE BOY WHO STOOD STILL

It happened quite by accident,
One day at home, the boy discovered hat he had an ability.

An ability to remain perfectly still.

For just a few minutes at first.
But then with refinement and perseverance,
He found he could after a time, freeze himself indefinitely.

Then one evening, at home with his mother after a few hours of complete stillness, he realised that she had lost all perception of him. He became part of the room, part of the furniture, part of the space of the room.

He became invisible. Even to the one who had given birth to him.

As the boy grew older, he would experiment with his ability in the wider world. He would disappear at his place of work. At his home and at parties.

Standing in the shadows, he would simply cease to exist.

The boy became estranged from the people and the world he had grown up knowing. He devoted his time to observation and deeper thinking. In the long shadows of the day, he would stand. Year after year. Watching.

But that was then.

I stood and watched you build them
With faces just like ours
Five figures standing without eyes
Their mouths aimed at the stars

The figures turned towards us
And soon obscured the sun
Their voices started rising
Screaming one by one

Hail Self
Hail Rage
Hail Fear
Hail Blame
Hail Lies
All rise, for The Five.

Over the course of time, he noticed his physiognomy begin to change. He grew taller. 2 dimensional, thin to the point of absurdity. He took food, and water in plain sight, under the noses of people blinded by the inability to conceive such an evolution.

He watched as his previous friends grew old, succumbed to disease, or self-inflicted damage and died.

Eventually he was alone.

Now? Who knows. But I think he’s out there somewhere still. Watching.

Hail Self
Hail Rage
Hail Fear
Hail Blame
Hail Lies
All rise, for The Five.

Hail Self
Hail Rage
Hail Fear
Hail Blame
Hail Lies
All rise, for The Five.

ISLAND LIFE

Holidays in the sun
Sending out your postcards from the gamma coast
The place you love the most, with all the other ghosts

And if you feel betrayed
Your country loves you nonetheless, just don’t get in the way
Enjoy your stay
Soak up all the rays

And if you ever dare to wonder why
Just shut your mouth
Enjoy the sights
And when the sunlight burns you, close your eyes
This fatal dose of island life

Burning in the sun
You could be anywhere right now with anyone
Forget your bleeding gums
It’s all part of the fun

Government 101 – keeping people happy in apocalyptic ways
Enjoy your holidays, we’re all fucked anyway

And if you ever dare to wonder why
Just shut your mouth
Enjoy the sights
And when the sunlight burns you, close your eyes
This fatal dose of island life

Living in this island life…

SKYWARDS

Across the open field and out towards the lake
A lifetime to consider a moment of escape
Selling him had currency, the waiting everyday
But your regret won’t bring him back
And silence ends the day

The cracks in your story will leave you numb
When running in circles we come undone

You’re out in the wild again
So stop staring upwards and face your pain
What’s skywards is not to blame
Just keep facing forwards and walk in the light again

Across the iron ocean
There’s comfort in despair
This boy consigned to black and white and memory can’t repair
In everything you see in him, the faces on the wall
Your weeds are growing faster now, suffocating all

The cracks in your story will leave you numb
When running in circles we come undone

You’re out in the wild again
So stop staring upwards and face your pain
What’s skywards is not to blame
Just keep facing forwards and walk in the light again

The angels won’t hear you unanswered prayers
And upwardly wishing won’t lead you there

You’re out in the wild again
So stop staring upwards and face your pain
What’s skywards is not to blame
Just keep facing forwards and walk in the light again
Walk in the light again, walk in the light again
What’s skywards is not to blame
So keep facing forwards away from the skywards
Just keep facing forwards and walk in the light again

KILL THE ORCHESTRA

Those violins playing inside your head
Please shut them up
I’m sleeping
The doorway’s over there

The boy I was has gone, they blew his happy brains out
They ground him down
I never thought that I would end up here

Let’s take the songs to the town
So they can shoot ‘ em all down
Kill the orchestra
We’re dying anyway

You’d start a war with all the words in the world
But they’re not enough
You’re beaten
And no one really cares

Let’s take our dreams to the town
So they can shoot ‘em all down
Kill the orchestra
We’re dying anyway

Inside the car
Sits the never was rock star
Stuck in the past
With your woe is me story

I used to care
Now you’ll get little sympathy
So get your guitar
It’s the death of a salesman

And I’ll be singing when they string you up
Yes, I’ll be singing when they string you up


Who’s laughing now?
Now you find your house empty
Desdemona, what did you do to yourself?

And I’ll be singing when they string you up
Yes, I’ll be singing as they string you up

Look what you’ve become
You’re the neighbourhood parody
The player of games
Your own worst enemy

So play it again
Please play it again for me
Your secret is out
Laid out for all to see

Those violins playing inside your head
Please shut them up
I’m sleeping
The doorway’s over there

Let’s take the songs to the town
So they can shoot ‘em all down
Kill the orchestra
We’re dying anyway

And I’ll be singing when they string you up
Yes, I ’ll be singing when they string you up

What have we done?

REPEAT TO FADE

There’s only one way out, repeat to fade
There’s no rewinding life, repeat to fade
Start clawing out your heart, repeat to fade
Repeat to fade

Trapped in metal coffins, endless days
Do as you are told and fear allays
Sacrifice your soul to this machine
This is not a place for living dreams

There’s only one way out, repeat to fade
There’s no rewinding life, repeat to fade
Start clawing out your heart, repeat to fade
Repeat to fade

Exercise your right at any time
There’s no dignity in slow decline
Treadmill institution bleeds you dry
Open up the window, take a dive

There’s only one way out, repeat to fade
There’s no rewinding life, repeat to fade
Start clawing out your heart, repeat to fade
Repeat to fade

We’re shutting down your comms, you have been warned
There’s glory in this world to be adorned
A perfect model life in loyalty
Subservient in essence, never free

There’s only one way out, repeat to fade
There’s no rewinding life, repeat to fade
Remember where you are, repeat to fade
Coz we know who you are, repeat to fade
There’s only one way out, repeat to fade
There’s no rewinding life, repeat to fade
Remember where you are, repeat to fade
Coz we know who you are, repeat to fade

FATHERS

I can see my history clearly
Treated me so insincerely
But it’s alright, it’s alright now

 

There’s a kick that takes me places
Putting names to all those faces
I’m one life, I’m two lives down

 

We go round again

 

We are the fathers, we stand alone
In the glare and the tension of wonder’s invention
Outstare the sun tear the world through my eyes
Though out moments were stolen
These are the days of my lives

 

Bury me I become a tree
Growing up through all my families
I’m three lives, I’m four lives down

 

Less than live, more than memory
Pushing out with every birthday
I’m five lives, I’m six lives down

 

We go round again

 

We are the fathers, we stand alone
In the glare and the tension of wonder’s invention
Outstare the sun tear the world through my eyes
Though out moments were stolen
We cannot be broken
These are the days of our lives
Of my lives

 

I was standing on the edge of a precipice
I remember how it ended at the start of this
I lost a year in here or maybe more and more

 

Outstare the sun tear the world through my eyes
Though our eyes are wide open
We cannot be broken
These are the days of my lives

CLOUDA

Clouda
Heard that you were coming
Saw your name kissing lips deep into the day
Closer
Gotta get to see you
Even though I fear you, I can’t look away

 

The Element Of Fate, he gave you our keys to the city
Then he left the gate wide open for you (for you to see me, see me, see me)
Your heart of violence silenced me with beating brutal beauty
You won’t take me home, (but you can have me, have me)

 

If silence is a crime I’m guilty (save the vapour)
No tears will stop the drought (all the grey sky dreams are gone)
The reign of watergone would fill me (maybe later)
But the water well has dried out, dried out

 

Fragile empire, built on clay
Winter chill could kill you on a summer’s day
And it’s fitting to be fitting
So I can bite my tongue and hold back what I’d say

 

The President Of Hate, he said that we must do our duty
But he left the gate wide open for you (for you to see me, see me, see me)
Your heart of violence silenced me with beating brutal beauty
You can take me home, (but you can’t have me, have me)

 

If silence is a crime I’m guilty (save the vapour)
No tears will stop the drought (all the grey sky dreams are gone)
The reign of watergone could fill me (maybe later)
But the water well has dried out, dried out

 

The years before I saw you
Filled with little things
Then you fell from the sky
And tore up everything
You pulled the rainclouds over
Turning day to night
You must have laughed as we stood
Dazzled by the sight

 

Soldier
You said the war was won
Turned the soil to dust and so much undone
Colder
You flew into the sun
Drank the seasons dry and left us with none

EXIBIT A

One girl’s heart full of dreams
A new star in the sky
They’ve seen it, they’ve seen it

 

Walks into the machine
And now she wants to die
Can’t stand it, can’t stand it, keep them away

 

Catch the firefly in a cage
Put the princess on a wage
Send the freakshow to the stage
Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

 

We own, we own, we own you

 

You think you’re something new
But there are a million more
Just like you, just like you

 

We don’t pay you to think
We pay you to do
Whatever, whatever shit we tell you to

 

We own, we own, we own you

 

Choose you
Make you
Use you
Break you
Sell you
Parade you
Forsake you
Replace You
Drop You
Fuck you
Onwards!

 

This is what you wanted!
These are all your dreams come true!
Why are you crying?
Why are you crying?
This is paradise!

FATHOM

My love came to me on a summer ray
And they married us on a perfect day
We made such plans of a better life
My husband and his ever bride

 

For I am in love and there is no cure
Desire now and for evermore
The time to come oh I will adore
I sail the waves with you my love

 

In the Autumn light we came back to town
And we kept our peace as we settled down
Then the Navy man, he came to our door
And he told us that there was a war

 

If my love should leave, life would bear no joy
So I dressed myself as a cabin boy
Then I volunteered on the self-same day
And we put to sea bound for far away

 

For I am in love and there is no cure
I’ll be by our side now and evermore
The time to come oh I will adore
I fight the waves with you my love

 

So the weeks pulled by and we soldiered on
But I knew by then there was something wrong
I lost wit as I fell by the gun
And when the surgeon came, all my strength had gone

 

I heard you cry when you stroked my hair
As your tears fell down through the brimstone air
What came of our plans of a better life?
My husband and his ever bride

 

For I am consumed and there is no cure
Remember me as you did before
Beneath the waves with you in my heart

EAT
Dropped down the order of Diptera
Born survivor fly by wire
I am the stone, white, damsel,
I am the dragon and the fire
 
I like the things that you do
You seem to make things die
I want to get to know you
You catch my compound eye
 
You cannot wait to feed us
I’m everywhere you dine
No honey trap for Venus
Swimming in your wine
 
You can wait until it’s night
Hypnotize me in blue light
You can put up quite a fight
But you can’t catch me
You can’t catch me
You can’t catch me
 
I like your monkey endeavour
You kill all else as one
But you’re not all quite so clever
If you think your work is done
 
I’ll feed upon your once be things
Given half a chance
I want to get inside your skin
Debride the groom and dance
 
You can turn my world to fire
Kill me with what I desire
You can be a frequent flyer
But you can’t catch me
 
You cannot wait to feed us
We’re everywhere you dine
No honey trap for Venus
Swimming in your wine…
DROWN

Don’t hold your breath
Don’t make a sound
Just breathe it in
Lay back and drown

 

Let’s drift away
Hiding from the worlds undone
And now we’ll chase the moon
Waiting for the warming sun

 

From the water’s edge
You pull me down
Over my head
For you I’ll drown

 

Let’s drift away
Hiding from the worlds undone
And now we’ll chase the moon
Waiting for the warming sun

FALLING SATELLITES
2016

FIRST DAY

There is never a survivor
from a final kiss
I remember how I ended
at the start of this
I lost a year in here or
maybe more 
No more…

NUMBERS

30 second paradise, saving up you pay the price
Line the eggs up in a line, come into my parlour now
Send the soldiers out to war, never seen our kind before
Coming under fire we’re near alive don’t stop it now

Numbers, we’re numbers
Death is for the breathing
Life is for the leaving
Numbers, we’re numbers
Hidden in the meaning
Seeing is believing

 

Numbers need numbers feed numbers breed numbers

 

Lay your life out in a line, not the one that you’d design
Time is moving faster, breathing getting harder now
You’re a tumble of the dice, you’re a living sacrifice
No shooting star you’re just a falling satellite

 

Numbers, we’re numbers
Death is for the breathing
Life is for the leaving
Numbers, we’re numbers
Hidden in the meaning
Seeing is believing

 

Numbers need numbers feed numbers breed numbers
We lit the fire, we lit the fire, we feed the fire, we need the fire
We lit the fire, we lit the fire, we feed the fire, we need the fire

 

30 second paradise, giving up and telling lies
Line the eggs up in a line, come into my parlour now
Send the soldiers out to war, they have seen it all before
Coming under fire, no winners only losers

 

Numbers, we’re numbers
Death is for the breathing
Life is for the leaving
Numbers, we’re numbers
Hidden in the meaning
Seeing is believing

 

Numbers, we’re numbers
Years you wasted dreaming
Waiting for the meaning
Numbers, we’re numbers
Time that you were leaving
Seeing is believing

TOWERBLOCK

They’re knocking down my Towerblock
The place where I grew up
When the walls start falling
I’m gonna be ready
My Estately home
Cold fingers risen from the land
I grew up life on stone
In the palm of your toughened hand

 

(They’re all gone gone gone gone gone gone)
The height lines on my bedroom door
(They’re all gone gone gone gone gone gone)
My soldiers hiding under the floor
(They’re all gone gone gone gone gone gone)
The never ending Monday nights
(It’s all gone gone gone gone gone gone)
The sound of Friday stairwell fights

 

They’re knocking down my Towerblock
The place that I come from
When the walls are falling
I’m gonna be ready

 

They’re knocking down my Towerblock
The place that I ran from
When this all means nothing nothing
I’m gonna be ready

 

There is glass on the carpet
There is dust in the air
This deafening wonder
But I wish that you were here

 

This space was a battleground
This place was a war
You beat me, now I beat you
As they tear it to the floor

 

I’m the only survivor
Of a life I’ve never known
There’ll be nothing left of your devastation

SIGNS

I dream of an open field
Where I bury big ideas
Standing in an open space
Quietly waiting just in case

 

Oh this doesn’t signify
A passion filled co-incidence reply
And well, you should have seen the signs
They lay scattered here like living land mines

 

Telling your friends that you’ve just out grown them
Bury it, won’t you bury it in the sand?
Telling your parents you hardly know them
Holding it, are you holding it in your hand?

 

I dream of an open page
Where I pencil all my rage
Standing on a question mark
Wish that I could lift the dark

 

But oh it doesn’t matter how
I have closed the episode for now
And yes you should have seen the signs
We go round again another thousand times

 

Telling your friends that you’ve just out grown them
Bury it, won’t you bury it in the sand?
Telling your parents you hardly know them
Holding it, are you holding it in your hand?
Telling yourself that you’re made of failure
Bury it, won’t you bury it in the sand?
Telling a lie that you can’t remember
Holding it, are you holding it in your hand?

 

Now I’m flying away from this nightmare
And I’m flying so far from my fear
And as oxygen leaves this experience
With my memory stuck on repeat

 

So I wish you all the best
Emperor’s clothes and beaten chest, down
Dream in six and seven
Laughing at the gates of heaven, how

 

Where are your leaders yeah where are your saviours?
How more of this distance to go?
We gave up believing in fate or divinity
Love we forgot long ago
We’re falling away now
Forgetting our way home
There’s nothing to say now
Not at all

 

Telling your friends that you’ve just outgrown them
Bury your head in the sand
Telling your parents you hardly them
Holding their past in your hand
Telling yourself that you’re made of failure
Bury your head in the sand
Telling a lie that you can’t remember
Holding the past in your hand

LIGHTS OUT

As my world gets small
I evolve in this red liquid light
While my thoughts grow tall
The outsider sings to me at night

So I drink it in
My life is running with the tide
Love me outside in
Joy with every kick I try

 

You’ll be fine
Life of mine

 

Lights out, lights out
I just want the chance to see before
Lights out, lights out
Lights out, lights out
I just want the chance to be before the
Light’s out, light’s out

 

Such a sad sound woke me up
It sounded like such pain
And the voice where that sound came from
Never sang to me again

 

So my world grows colder
I find it hard to understand
Feel my thoughts grow small
I can’t see my hands…

 

Hushabye
Don’t you cry

 

Dead of night
I think I must be dreaming
I close my eyes
Sleep tight

HEARTSTRINGS

He was never into pale reflection
He was never into fireside
Always wishing on a World War Christmas
Mummy smiling down without her eyes

Round and round in circles
Pushing out the past
I don’t want you she said, paint this picture fast

 

Hear you breathing so lightly…

 

Trying to cover your blinded side
Pull your heartstrings
Trying to run from the old demise (you know who you are)
Trying to count, but the clock says nil
Pull your heartstrings
Trying to run, but you just stand still
Fill your lungs with air

 

Could you lie here when the ceiling crumbles
Can you swim beneath a steely sea
Open letter to an absent parent
In the fire with the enemy

 

Round and round in circles
Pushing out the past
I don’t want you she said, leave this picture fast

 

Hear you breathing so lightly…

 

Trying to cover your blinded side
Pull your heartstrings
Trying to run from the old demise (you know who you are)
Trying to count, but the clock says nil
Pull your heartstrings
Trying to run, but you just stand still
Fill your lungs with air

 

Round and round in circles
Running out of air
Caught in endless cycles
Burn all the bridges if you dare

CLOSER TO THE SUN

You are the ghost of everyone
And anyone who’s ever been loved
You are the said and done

We are the forms of everything
And anything that’s ever been lost
We are the lonely ones

 

But I feel closer to the sun
Let me be closer to the sun
Just to know I’m not the only one
Is to be closer to the sun

 

These are the days of reckoning
For everyone forever before
We are the running scared

 

We are the sound of memories
The shadows of the feelings that we wore
Just pictures on a wall

 

But I feel closer to the sun
Let me be closer to the sun
Now I know I’m not the only one
I’ll sleep closer to the sun

TRATDOTLBI78

Woke up this morning, I’m the last man standing
It’s a colder world that I see when there’s nobody left to save me

Deep November damage gets you down
Not so clever when the King forgets his crown

 

War in the numbers, this childhood of mine
6 years of Septembers, best days of my life
I remember the lights from the fires in the sky
They brought us together and taught us to hide

 

I burned so bright, but I’m just a human candle set alight
I flew so high now I’m nothing but a falling satellite

 

Days get darker and the nights keep on drawing in
I got a hollow head and a hollow heart leaving me without within

 

Fading song, we sing along, but when it’s gone I’m gone

 

The face in the mirror
I know every line
Old bones hammered thinner
By distance and time
Can’t remember the names, but the faces survive
I’m trying to fight, but they keep me alive

 

I burned so bright, but I’m just a human candle set alight
I flew so high now I’m nothing but a falling satellite

 

I’m said, I’m done
No hide, no run
No light, no sun
But it’s alright
I’m old video
Long gone radio
Someone you used to know
Who I used to know

 

Same river, same ocean, same life again
Seen seldom relations. Driving in rain.
The sum of existence, the years we lost.
We all fall back to earth, ashes and dust.

NICE DAY FOR IT...

Let me be closer to the sun
Let me be closer to the Let me be closer to the sun
Let me be closer to the sun

There is never a survivor from a final kiss
I remember how it ended at the start of this
I love a year in here of maybe more and more

I need air

LAST DAY

The air is warming up again
The summer sounds are like old friends
I see the sunlight through the trees
I wonder if the sun can see me?

 

I hear the echoes of those days
Reflecting back at me in waves
Carved into benches I’ll remain
With names I’ll never say again

 

Like children’s handprints in old concrete
The things we leave behind
Slowly lose their meaning
When paths get hard to find

 

Handprints in old concrete
Ghosts we leave behind
Fingers with no feeling
This world I leave behind

 

The air is warming up again
The summer sounds are like old friends
I feel the sunlight through the trees

LANTERN

Silently, suddenly, comes the ghost at your side
Quietest enemy inside the dream

 

Perfectly this reprieve, taken, but not given
Loneliness, like a mist lost to the sea

 

Eyes like violence cut desire and float down to the chair
Always still God’s windowsill and perfectly aware

 

Say you’ll wait till morning
Say you won’t run away (even today)
Say you’ll keep this lantern for me now (for me now)

 

I believe make believe, play like snakes in your hair
Empathy, up my sleeve, not really there
Child’s play in the waves by this silent lighthouse
Drowning fast, pushing hard, nature less care

 

Eyes like mice, cut through the lies and humourless despair
Always still God’s windowsill and perfectly aware

 

Inside this whirlpool you find yourself spinning and ebbing and flowing to me
Nightmare diversion a hopeless uncertainty play in the wild wild sea

 

Say you’ll wait till morning
Say you won’t run away (even today)
Say you’ll keep this lantern for me now (for me now)

BRITISH WINTERTIME

I’m nervous as hell
But I must do this for myself

 

I walk the road that leads to your house
Worn words would never do
This happens face to face

 

Something that I’ve got to say

 

I’m at your door…

EXPERIMENTS IN MASS APPEAL
2008

EIMA

I don’t care if you don’t mind
Modern life’s the mocking kind
But tell me how I came to be
Married to my enemy?

Of all the things you want to be
The earth beneath the industry
An ideal and an innocence
The moral ends the consequence

 

Core desire
Oh, it’s a real live wire
Setting my life on fire
Oh, it’s unreal…

 

Forever
Immortally
Endeavour
A god I’ll be
Remember reality
I’m not the one who owns me

 

Victims of demography
Just product in a category
Testing what you think and feel
Experiments in mass appeal

 

Core desire
Oh, it’s a real live wire
Setting my life on fire
Selling my soul for the liar
Oh, it’s unreal…

 

Forever, immortally
Endeavor, a god I’ll be
Remember, reality
Forever, immorally

 

Forever
Immortally
Endeavour
A god I’ll be
Remember reality
Forever
Immorally
Endeavour
A god I’ll be
Remember reality

WELCOME TO NOWHERE

Life unreal
The feeding of the fear
An error of creation
No love left in here

 

And I see
You falling out for fun
United in division
Defy everyone

 

It’s all a game
The hurting and the healing
But still the same
You’ll leave us nothing
Nothing at all

 

Caught in the process
Of mass separation
Victims of progress
And mute isolation

 

God of small empire
This numb masturbator
Pissing his life into
Plastic and paper

 

Closing time for life…

 

Welcome To Nowhere with me
It’s in your head
Dead man, firehand
I’m burning through your Wonderland

 

Chatroom objector
You bile carbonator
Second Life saviour
Still feeling a failure

 

Closing time for life…

 

Welcome To Nowhere with me
It’s in your head
Dead man, firehand
I’m burning through your Wonderland

 

Fan the flame
The hurting and the healing
But all the same
You’ll leave us nothing

 

Welcome To Nowhere with me
It’s in your head
Dead man, firehand
I’m burning through your Wonderland

 

Welcome To Nowhere with me
It’s in your head
Dead man, cold hand
I’m burning through your Wonderland
I’m burning through your Wonderland

POCKET SUN

Feels like over
Feels like over

 

I’ve got this window on my wall
When she lights up I see it all
The now and then, the yet to be
So I get out there and I run free

 

Lost
In time
Life line
You’re all I want
This time
Rewind
All come undone
My pocket sun

 

Feels like over
Feels like over

 

I went to Rome and watched it burn
Once round the world with Mister Verne
I’ve fallen out my family tree
Now my great grand daddy is me

 

Lost
In time
Life line
You’re all I want
This time
Rewind
All come undone
My pocket sun

 

Lost
In time
Life line
You’re all I want
This time
Rewind
All come undone
In time
Life line
You’re all I want
This time
Rewind
All come undone
My pocket sun

SALINE

If I
Say why
Will you cry
To please me?

 

Tell me lies
Fail to try
Say goodbye
It’s easy

 

Eyes cry
Tears dry
Tongues tie
Release me

 

Blue sky
Mind’s eye
Do or die
Appease me

 

Fine chilling mime
And I don’t know if I can believe in all the lies
Calcify
And I don’t know if I can survive the feeling
Losing all that’s mine

 

Amputee
Cut from me
Setting free
Deceiving

 

Leaving be
Lost at sea
Absentee
You’re grieving

 

Fine chilling mime
And I don’t know if I can believe in all the lies
Crucify
And I don’t know if I can survive the feeling
Losing all that’s mine

 

All, hold the wall, shallow call, doubters all, face the wall
Lovers fall, face the wall, losers all

 

Fine chilling mime
And I don’t know if I can believe in all the lies
Crucify
And I don’t know if I can survive the feeling
Losing all that’s mine

 

I won’t be the good for nothing
I won’t be the same old feeling
I won’t be the one you turn to
I won’t be the phase you go through

DEAR DEAD DAYS

Home
The violence of your name
Still soothes me all the same
With echoes of my past
Safe surroundings
Meant to last

 

Everybody got an explanation
For a world that has lost sensation
Nothing saves the feelings we forgot to feel

 

Welcome to the family
Alone now you belong to me
Your life will be my property
I’ll redefine your sanity

 

Dear Dead Days
Long to find us
And define us all those yesterdays
That remind us
We’re the same in every way

 

Safe and sound
Beside you, hide you from them
The real, deride you, let me tie you in

 

Everybody got a desperation
For the girl in the situation
Headlines hiding feelings we forgot to feel

 

Welcome to the family
Alone now you belong to me
Your life will be my property
I’ll redefine your sanity

 

Dear Dead Days
Long to find us
And define us all those yesterdays
That remind us
We’re the same in every way

 

This life I have – I give to you
These thoughts I have – they’re all for you
These things you say – I know they’re true
There’s no-one else – No-one but you

 

Now, outside
Feels like real life
My sky, eyes wide
Too wired to cry
You run
You hide
You taste
Suicide
Some child
Profiled
Beguiled
Defiled
Reviled

 

Dear Dead Days
Long to find us
And define us all those yesterdays
That remind us
We’re the same in every way

FALLING DOWN

Life, it all became too much
It’s easier to run
An early warning sign
Take arms and charge the line

 

Four reasons, I told you lies
Four reasons, why we won’t touch eyes
Four reasons, unsatisfied
Four reasons, always there inside

 

I feel I’m falling down

There’s nothing left here to say now
Falling down
Let’s put our secrets away now
Falling down
Stop getting hope in the way now
Falling down
We’ll lose it all any day now
Falling down
No meaning left in the sound now
Falling down
I’m giving back what I found now
Falling down
I’m heading back to the ground now
Falling down
Not getting up till I break down

 

Love, I cut a lonely soul
On shards of broken hearts
Outlines of those I lost
Take time and count the cost

 

Four reasons, I told you lies
Four reasons, why we won’t touch eyes
Four reasons, unsatisfied
Four reasons, left me dead inside

 

I feel I’m falling down

 

Time will justify

 

Like birds must fall to fly

YOU/I

You talk, you think own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do, they’re not for you
I’m sick, I’m tired
Leave me alone

TOYS

Here and now
I’m a waterfall
Fall through me
I’ll emulate your tears

 

See me now
I’m a superstar
Still shining
I’ll burn you when you’re near

 

Ego come and ego go
The eyes say I, the mind say no
Reason ebb and reason flow
Away again

 

Step right up and take the ride
East of easy
Watch as I go down now, around now
Sell your stock in Jealouscide
Take the shock of all my future crimes now,
Wrap you up, the toys are good to go

 

Love me now
I’m a looking glass
Convector
I’ll amplify your fears

 

Fear me now
I’m an accident
A secret
I’ll bother you for years

 

It’s dog eat God in Dog we trust
The steely seas are turned to rust
Carpet hides the guilty dust
Away again

 

Step right up and take the ride
East of easy
Watch as I go down now, around now
Sell your stock in Jealouscide
Take the shock of all my future crimes now,
Wrap you up and never let you go

 

Step right up and take the ride
East of easy
Watch as I go down now, around now
Sell your stock in Jealouscide
Take the shock of all my future crimes now,
Wrap you up the toys are good to go

 

Step right up and take the ride
East of easy

 

Watch me go…

WONDERLAND

Hero, touching down refugee from the ground
Say hello, dance along to the light and the sound

 

Hero, stealing hope from the words in your mouth
But fear grows, never far from the pain and the doubt

 

Lo-fi, are we lo-fi
Lo-fi, are we lo-fi

 

Feeling the life force of a Milliontown
Better settle down in a day
Doing the wrong thing is the best advice, better get a life
Here I’m electrified, it’s a wonderful feeling to be alive

 

Heat, it’s alright, it’s alright
Take the heat, it’s alright, it’s alright
Take the heat, it’s alright, it’s alright
Take the heat, it’s alright, it’s alright

 

Hero, are you falling apart at the seams
Just a zero, now you finally know what it means

 

Heat, it’s alright, it’s alright
Take the heat, it’s alright, it’s alright
Take the heat, it’s alright, it’s alright
Take the heat, it’s alright, it’s alright

 

I’m drowning
Far out at sea
To far to chase the waves home
To deep to really see

 

I’m sending
My thoughts to you
A message in a waveform
I hope that it gets through

 

And I’ll be fine
Don’t worry

 

I’m drifting
Human debris
Just one drop in the ocean
It’s all I’ll ever be

 

And I’ll be fine
Don’t worry

 

Remember me
Remember me

 

I’m falling
Beneath the sea
The tide of these emotions
Washing over me

 

I’m fading
Into the deep
The pressure equalizing
Rocking me to sleep

 

And I’ll be fine
Don’t worry

 

Remember me

MILLIONTOWN
2006

NO ME NO YOU

No right no wrong no true no lie
No I no long no live no die
No heart no break no see no hear
No real no fake no cry no fear
No hear no see no see no feel
No feel no be no thing be real
No here no there no they’re no I
No I no care no wanna try

 

Wide eyed and cynical
Right to the middle
No emotion can get in your way
The solution is clinical
Little by little you push me away
Keep pushing away

 

No win no lose no lose no find
No find no choose no better mind
No I no we no run no hide
No you no me no sea no tide
No love no leave no give no take
No more believe no more mistake
No one no way no wanna win
No year no day no thinner skin

 

Wide eyed and cynical
Right to the middle
The emotion I can’t keep away
The solution is clinical
Little by little I cut you away
Keep cutting away

 

Killing my love
Killing my love for you
Even now in front of me
I disavow the family
Here and now it would be all beyond a doubt
In my life
Truth and you not all you could be

 

No right no wrong no true no lie
No I no long no live no die
No die no live no live no love
No love no lose no leaving of
No see nowhere no air no sky
No true no dare no reason why
No have no say no say no do
No god no pray no me no you

SNOWMAN

Death has done her work this morning

Cutting me back down to size
Frozen in this winter warning
Gentle in it’s own demise
Starving sun in deep November
It cannot feed us any more
Leaving us this dark reminder
Of things we should have done before

 

Even as our days are numbered
I can feel it getting near
Deafened by the sounds of others
Who only got as far as here
In the chilling of the evening
They find the ones that won’t survive
Taken as the day surrenders
While we fight to stay alive
Can you feel the summer ending?
Will this be the end of me?
Afraid of all that might have happened
And all that never came to be

 

Will you tell me when it’s gone?
Will you tell me when it’s over?
Even though it’s just begun
Even though I’m going over

 

Death has done her work this morning
Cutting me back down to size

THE OTHER ME

I got the news today
Elsewhere I am dividing
Feels like my world is ending
I’ve made another me
Warm, red, barely dead
Thoughts running through my other head

 

Fingers twitching, muscle building
I’ve made me obsolete
Relive my life
I feel safer inside
And the things I see
Hidden in the chemistry
Is there anybody I can believe, believe
And the eyes I see
As I face the other me
Is there anybody I can call me, call me

 

No longer this year’s newest type
Superseded, absent hype
Spoilt, faded, over ripe
I’m so much older news
Evolution come around
Jury trial by ultrasound
My handiwork will hunt me down
And masquerade as me

 

Relive my life
I feel safer inside
Now one on one has made us three
I look away, too sick to see
Our faces staring back at me
My little Frankenstein
I sit alone beside the cage
And try to fight with all my rage
End of story, turn the page
I’m not the one you want

BLACK LIGHT MACHINE

I’m just a stranger
I walk in the black light
Boy to a soldier
I’m fighting the good fight
And I wait
I wanna go, don’t wanna know
‘bout the danger

 

I’m just a farm boy
Just doin’ what I can
When I’ll be a killer
It’ll make me a real man
I can’t wait
I’m gonna know, I wanna go
Through the changes
And I can’t breathe
Or is it all in my mind?
The faces are changing
Misplaced in time
And I won’t dream
I will be the headlines
Your features are fading
Too late this time

 

And you know
You’d always be the first in line
And you know
It’s all about the life divine
A hero’s ending
All the signs
You’re the one
And the one you must survive
And you know
It doesn’t matter what you do
And you know
The luck you wear will pull you through

 

The never ending
Light you find
For the one
The one will survive
And you know…

MILLIONTOWN

ONE UNDERGROUND

 

My worm cathedral
All earthy for your infestation
These little workers build me an empire
Your loyalty I burrowed out mined by erosion
My little kingdom ready for me now
These careful times
The residue of past digestion
Get what you can now
Good staff are hard to find
My bitter name
The full effect of time and tension
You utter duty and fight to stay the same

 

ABRACADAVER

 

With a cross upon the wall
I was blinded by it all
Now the faces left behind
These are no friends of mine
When your fears are cast aside
Out across the great divide
Rage is part of your design
But I won’t play this time
Hero waiting by the line
Here on my own
All alone
On my own
All alone

 

THE ONLY SURVIVORS

 

Why do you run and hide?
Here inside the lighthouse
You lose the way
Ghost of yesterday
And before you know
You’ll fade away
You and I were will live and die
We are not the only survivors
You and me we’re too blind to see
We are not the only survivors
Games that you people play
Here inside the lighthouse
You’ll have to stay
Time she ran away
Slipping through our fingers
Time running out

 

CORE

 

I, number you
Carving circles in your soul
I pull you through
As I do
Cut your family ties
Before your eyes
Too much, too soon
Early warning
Saved by the day
Carried away, you’re still falling
Take me over
Harder, colder
I want you to be…

 

THE CHOSEN FEW

 

Awake again and I’m alone
The thoughts I have are no my own
No one knows I’m here
The faces move around the room
Their voices cut into the gloom
But they’re not listening
What’s that shadow moving?
Is that a life in here?
Won’t someone please come and free me
Here, dead but still alive in here
Help me come alive
In here
There’s a lot I’ve got to do
It was not your place to choose
And now
I lose

 

TWO UNDERGROUND

 

My worm cathedral
Diseased by all the intervention
I watch them turning
Into things they might have been
These fatal days
Corrupted by our own perfection
You’re looking to me
But there’s nothing more to say
