Track Name: We're Still Here
5 years ago in may
we took the train
into the storm

the sand that burned our toes
feels sorer the more it grows
the sharp betrayal, the thorn in your side
the let down and the porcupine


left lonely and forgotten
the trampled and the trodden
we’re still here

the man who told them no
began to overthrow
the big old house, the journey home
the endless falling , my broken bones


and after all the shouting
the foothills and the mountains
the trees that withered slowly
you say you just adore me
i’m counting on you, counting
I’m counting on you

the incandescent silence
that shone from both your eyelids
the fire in the distance
the depth of your persistence
i’m counting on you, counting
I’m counting on you


our legs are old and worn
but still we journey on
you said, salvation lies
behind the wool over your eyes

you’d think by know you’d know
that if we are to grow
we’d take our time, we’d make a fuss
we’d throw ourselves under the bus


and after all the shouting
the foothills and the mountains
the trees that withered slowly
you say you just adore me
i’m counting on you, counting
I’m counting on you

the incandescent silence
that shone from both your eyelids
the fire in the distance
the depth of your persistence
i’m counting on you, counting
I’m counting on you
Track Name: Intravenous
your sideways smile, it melts us down
into the cracks in the road, and it never gets old

the deep dark sky, it draws us in
given the chance we wouldn’t know where to begin


sentimentality, has left us dry
As we await the pouring rain begins die

her sun bleached nightmare is falling into place
and i know, that i’m falling into, falling on my face


we can’t go on like this
we can’t go on like this
we can’t go on like this
we can’t go on like this
we can’t go on like this
have you forgotten miss
leading you on like this
we can’t go on like this
Track Name: Perjury
mediocrity has overthrown the monarchy
but nothing seems to change

pain and perjury have left us where we’re meant to be
it still goes on, the pain exists
it’s in your hands, it’s in your wrists
ah


the purple sea it comes and goes
but with the tide the more it grows
no home to keep you warm

the war is waged but none have won
no valiant prodigal son
just bags of skin and bone


don’t close your eyes
you have to see
the world that has enveloped me
you journey on but still they say
you’ll never live to see that day


and what is left for those below
a spectacle, a sell out show
the calm before the storm

the fight runs rampant in the street
the public outcry, bloody knees
of all the things you did last week
why did you try to be unique


don’t close your eyes
you have to see
the world that has enveloped me
you journey on but still they say
you’ll never live to see that day


they chew us up, they spit us out
but none are left, there is no doubt
the neighbours are at war
