Track Name: Caught
Threw my love across the tracks,
Where my love ranged and your love lacked.
Time had sown those tender cracks,
Love lost raged on a small man trapped.

See my future, dreams that I told,
She's got new hair and all new clothes.
Saying no in your sweetest tune.
My life was free for you to mourn.

I took a plane and twenty trains,
One hundred million miles away.

In your grasp I was caught,
And knowing has captured me more.

See the red dust that I know,
With open arms she always welcomes me home.
But I am a creature and I'm roaming free,
Perhaps I brought you back here with me.

I took a plane and twenty trains,
One hundred million miles away.

In your grasp I was caught,
And knowing has captured me more.
In your grasp I was caught.
And knowing has captured me more.
Track Name: Invitation
That woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me.

You couldn’t tell me who stole my reflection.
Damn woman let go of me,
understand an invitation.
I am a sadist, I am the policeman.
Damn woman let go of me,
understand an invitation.

When did you get home, who did you come home with?
When did you get home, who did you come home with?

That woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me.

You couldn’t tell me who stole my reflection.
Damn woman let go of me,
understand an invitation.
I am a sadist I am the policeman.
Damn woman let go of me,
understand an invitation

When did you get home, who did you come home with?

That woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me,
that woman got a hold on me.
Track Name: The Money
Made all the money that you could,
Men wait on you with hand and foot,
Do you sleep through the night?
The money can burn.

Walk through the city
In the hours it’s undreamt of
I throw a dollar on a beggar just wants his drug
I’m hypnotised by the feeling of loss my love
Oh the money can burn,
With the pain of a man that sees a thousand slaves
I have the will of the same man that turns away
I’m standing by while the wild is bought and tamed
Oh the money can burn
The money can burn

Made all the money that you could,
Did everything the way you should,
Do you sleep through the night?
The money can burn.

Walk through the city
In the hours it’s undreamt of
I throw a dollar on a beggar just wants his drug
I’m hypnotised by the feeling of loss my love
Oh the money can burn
Track Name: Ordinary
Walking alone knew you wouldn’t be there,
the same way you knew I wouldn’t care,
Digging deeper holes every time that we speak,
relate in mutual misery.

I studied your face under Ikea lighting,
I swear you rejoice in being right.

Gonna make you wrong for leaving I’m gonna twist our tale dry…

Until we’re ordinary
Until we’re ordinary

Thought you said you were along for the ride,
complaining all day is not riding.
Couples in bed singing each other’s praises,
we fear to tread in these waters.

Pulling my hair out why was I not famous?
My work now shows on the skin of my face.

Pay the damn electrician, because I’ve twist my tale dry…

And now I’m ordinary.
Until we’re ordinary.

Go and buy those earrings,
no I don’t care,
no I don’t care.

Go and buy anything,
no I don’t care,
I don’t mind.

I would pay anything,
no I don’t care,
no I don’t care.

I would spend everything,
just to see you happy again,
happy again.

Until we’re ordinary.
Until we’re ordinary.
Until we’re ordinary.
Track Name: All I Need
When the cracks in the walls have eyes,
Control wears her cruel disguise.
Your love is all I need.

When I told my wife another lie,
And I bought another years supply.
Your love is all I need.

Your love is all I need.
Your love is all I need.

Asked Alexander for advice,
Now wondering if he’s a spy.
Your love is all I need.

Blocked the camera on my phone,
Wish the cops would leave me alone.
Your love is all I need.

Your love is all I need.
Your love is all I need.

No the dead ‘aint rising, the dead ‘aint raising,
Your love is all that I need.

Curtains taped to the walls,
And I ‘aint takin’ mothers calls.
Your love is all I need.

Thought about life on my own,
All the beauty I’d have never known.
Your love is all I need.

Your love is all I need.
Your love is all I need.
Track Name: Willow Tree
Look at her hand as she said my ring is a fake.
It doesn’t mean anything, my word wont decay.
Get down and kiss my firey hand, under God who married the land.
Heart of strings,
promises breaking,
not sure if I’m giving or taking.
This love is afraid of coming undone,
somehow we knew we were done.

This love has brought jealousy,
I waited for you at the willow tree, holding onto the fake.

Don’t give up on us baby,
Don’t give up on us baby,
Don’t give up on us baby,
Don’t give up on us.

Look at his lips as he whispers the world is a fake.
I’m sucking down these pills at the doctors ok.
I, I was a gust of wind and flame.
Under God who married the lamb.

Artist strings,
Stories of fiction,
Not sure it’s the start or the ending.
This love is afraid of coming undone,
Somehow we knew we were done.

This love has brought jealousy,
I waited for you at the Willow tree, holding onto the fake.

Don’t give up on us baby,
Don’t give up on us baby,
Don’t give up on us baby,
Don’t give up on us.
Track Name: Understand
Working hard, my knees are sore.
Find me quietly mending a saw.
Tend to baby, blood did it all,
hold her gently, she’s wanting more.

You’ll find me at “The General” or “Beggars of Life”.
Three cases of Emu, we’re all undoing our belts.
He was a good son he worked hard all his life.
“But Michael am I meant for a world that I don’t understand?”

And did it rain fire in your dream?
And I was a down-and-out killing machine.
And you don’t know what it means to survive.
And I hope to God, you get to play,
Just for a little more time.

Sauce is empty, fetch me a beer.
Food on the table, which I fit in the eve.
Bed ain’t empty, my knees aren’t sore,
I’m not getting shot at oh how I love this boredom.

You’ll find me at “The General” or “Beggars of Life”,
Three cases of Emu, we’re all undoing our belts.
He was a good son he worked hard all his life.
“But Michael am I meant for a world that I don’t understand?”

And did it rain fire in your dream,
And I was a down-and-out killing machine.
And you don’t know what it means to survive.
And I hope to God, you get to play,
Just for a little more time.
Just for a little more time.
Just for a little more time.
Track Name: Long Night
It was a long night, walking with you in the cold.
Stories inside you, pulling you back to your home.
Heard you cry, from a distance,
Jumped a mile into your dream
Heard you cry from a distance
She was never to be seen
My baby’s lost in a dream.

Took a long time, trying to swim to the shore,
I’ll try to hold you, but mother’s tied you to a stone.

Heard you cry, from a distance,
Jumped a mile into your dream
Heard you cry from a distance
She was never to be seen
My baby’s lost in a dream.
Track Name: Come Home
About time we all were honest.
I prayed for me to take your place.
We lie down and all was silent.
Both thinking things we could not say.

Lights out it’ll all be over.
Stop pleading with him to take my place.
No baby you’re not coming with me now.
No baby you’re not coming home with me.

So fair and softly spoken,
I was to take more than a step.
We’re all handed a different card,
mine, yours, but we must play our part.

Lights out it’ll all be over.
Stop pleading with him to take my place.
No baby you’re not coming with me now.
No baby you’re not coming with me.

Lights out it’ll all be over.
Stop pleading with him to take my place.
No baby you’re not coming with me now.
No baby you’re not coming home with me.

You’re walking on your own again.
About the time I was checking in.
You’re walking on your own again.
You’re on your own again.

Downstairs in the boxes hiding,
our love has barely left a trace.
Outside all the trucks are parking,
with someone knew to take our place.

Lights out it’ll all be over.
Stop pleading with him to take my place.
No baby you’re not coming with me now.
No baby you’re not coming with me.

Lights out it’ll all be over.
Stop pleading with him to take my place.
No baby you’re not coming with me now.
No baby you’re not coming home with me.
Track Name: Gun In His Hand
Caroline took the airline back home for a day.
Knew that her hair-do would blow Kevin away.
The people from school knew she’d be around.
Wore her ruby boots to show off to the town.

Drove to Geniene’s to discuss the court order,
but found out that Kevin had skipped the border.

Who was the genius who put the gun in his hand?

Trampled the garden and blamed it on her brother,
who had just joined the army to be with his lover.
Found her old tweezers and plucked out her hairs.
And every less hair made her one less a care.

Who was the genius who put the gun in his hand?

She drew on her eyebrows with a permanent marker.
And threw off her clothes to embarrass her father.
Who felt like reacting would be too much bother.

Who was the genius who put the gun in his hand?
