Track Name: Small Fortune
Melancholic enough for two,
It passes patched up freshly bandaged in reasons,
Though hardest to find sometimes there when you need them.

So let them call it a fit or a mood,
As it ebbs and it flows like the movement of seasons, You've no sooner said "bye" than your rushing to greet them all.

Are we lost or improved beyond sunder,
Tracing away every detail in ruin,
Moving so fast just to see what we're losing.

Don't you paint them blind if it seems sometimes as though fortune just favours the loud,
Brash and vain but still all the same its the smallest of breaks seperating out.

Smiles like shields to the world and we're guessing,
What could exist you can pacify this way?
Or will chasing the rush make you satisfied one day?

Keep in mind though it seems sometimes as though fortune just favours the loud,
Cursing down each worsening hour is the surest of ways to stay down and out.

Is it ever enough no never enough to
Praise your good luck whenever your stuck,
Whenever its tough whenever its rough,
Whatever you loose whenever you choose to

Find it enough no never enough to
Praise your good luck whenever your stuck,
Whenever its tough whenever its rough,
Whatever you loose whenever you choose to be

Free and grateful, God rest equals,

As we're caught short and wondering why we're not smiling,
Cos all said and done one day we'll stop
and we'll try then...
Track Name: Dig In
Preparations, made once twice shy, break them down and screen each golden mean,
A separation, so cold and plain, far too simple now, to draw again...

Painting over
Seeking closure
Should have known where i stand, still...

Placed and pardoned, each righteous wrong,
All intents so vast fell so free and fast, straight past...

But I'll fix this all on my own, take pride in the fall,
Dust off and stand tall, see even the least of these actions through
Til all on their own their lined and controlled,
(Painting over...)
pieced back in the fold,
(Seeking closure...)
Each seperately sent to where their best used
(Should have known when...)

Card and paper, built sky-high,
Held taught with twine, enforced in lines,
So fragile lately, swaying, finally crashing through each worry proved,
Caught and folded then hid from view, may stem minor crimes, (not the least of mine) this time...

But I'll fix this all on my own, take pride in the fall,
Dust off and stand tall, see even the least of these actions through,
Til all on their own their lined and controlled,
(Painting over...)
Pieced back in the fold,
(Seeking closure...)
Each seperately sent to where their best used
(Should have known cos...you keep on telling me...)

Each time and again, last line of defence, holds strongest of all, take pride in the fall, dust off and stand tall, make even the least of these actions new...

(You keep on telling me...)
Track Name: Of Kings
To rearrange and mould, beats waiting to watch unfold, The tick-ticking down rests uneasy,
But can comfort really cut so cleany?

We're done explaining each remaining lost and empty word,
More ground is made and found in those unheard, Speaking over each more solid teaches less than what we know,
But patience found in purpose takes control, leads on, makes whole...

So softly tread and glean, a glimpse into all unseen,
Or set-set it off, soonest mended, its better pretending You've improved your happy ending,

Still we're done explaining each remaining lost and empty word,
More ground is made and found in those unheard, Speaking over each more solid teaches less than what we know,
But patience found in purpose takes control, leads on, makes whole...

Ride this tempest, free and blameless,

With each step each move we're edging so near,
To whats left whats pure whats keeping us here
Still its all a drop in the sea when all of this time just letting it be could have,

Spared us each step each move whilst edging so near,
To whats left whats pure whats keeping us here
Still its all a drop in the sea when all of this time just letting it be could have,

Spared us each step each move whilst edging so near,
To whats left whats pure whats keeping us here Still its all a drop in the sea when all of this time just letting it be could have,

Opened our eyes, our ears, new doors to whats waiting, Just pause this anticipation is setting us back and holding us under,
Left to catch breath whenever we wonder why...

Why are we deprived the sight to compromise?

So, whatever we call on helps us decide,
Whenever we stall between "hope" and "try".
Track Name: 20:20
I move to make a right, out of wrongs past,
Assemble them in structures, which I bind fast,
Like diamonds strong and shining, they show me,
A clearer view than hindsights ever been...

But why now and not then?
What shows sure if I'm elsewhen?

Its a callow spark of hunger, that moves me,
But to follow starts and wonder where they're leading to, Is to ask for unimagined, like we all could,
Like craving light makes darkness understood...

Though we can pretend, live through it all again,
Still why now and not then?

To spare a thousand echoes we may move slow,
But these ripples in the water are how we know,
That there's more than just whats showing and no secrets,
Just a finer line between hopes and regrets,

Though we can pretend, live through it all again,
Details, the in-betweens, held tight they die and scar the scenes,
But no heed, no cause to mend, each shattered shard of time we spend,
Screams why now and not then?

Keeping scared is hardly saving any faces,
Are we better just declaring that we made this on our own?...
Track Name: Nightlight
I can't sleep til I see the rising sun,
It comforts me to know another days begun,
Cos time keeps its promise each new dawn,
And those we break amongst ourselves won't stop it moving on...

Keep your nightlight on,
Keep your eyes open,
Keep your nightlight on,
Keep your eyes open,


When the worlds at your feet it starts biting at your heels,
And you've barely got time to look and see what each new day reveals,
But whats for you won't pass without making itself known,
Theres no questions to ask, just notice what your shown...

Whats left to wait for now?
The winds at your back and its cold on your skin,
Whats left to wait for now?
An ending with no idea where to begin,
Whats left to wait for now?
You're closing your eyes and there's nothing to see, Whats left to wait for now?

Tell Me...
Tell Me...

(You're lights on)

(Keep you're light on...)
