Track Name: Such Confidence
Such Confidence

The man behind me
is telling her all about Jesus
trying to convince us that we will be saved only once we confess we have sinned
Sounded depressive! I try to build my energy from positivity knowing that others have given themselves and their love has made its way to me
what a strange focus on the afterlife
I would like to be beautiful now.
Wonderful for you to have such confidence.
Sounds like you've got it all figured out.
Happiness for you and your inheritance.
I'll reincarnate into the sky. I'll reincarnate into the sky.
I'm so tired of talking 'cause truth is elusive and not found in things you can say.
Track Name: Here We Go!
The sun is rising and setting:
everyone, here we go!
Turning circles while standing,
getting up, starting home.
Watch me hurtle through space now:
illusion is what we know.
So, why not tell me a story? make it good, It's my life!


Everything's always changing, yet somehow the same.
Keep on moving but you will find you are right here.
Present Past and the Future; all that we fear.
Hope you're not waiting for something...don't wait too long. I've got everything that I need.
don't I?
do I?
do I?

Walk in visions, in fictions...things I heard as a kid.
Navigating our hearts out, there's a current that pulls.
Could you touch me and ground me? cause living is more than words.
Living is
Track Name: Victoria
These hills are covered in daffodils
my arms are full of air and wind and air and wind and
Motion,
keeping me on my own
Still afraid that I will end up alone
Normal,
has never been good enough
an open mind means that you open up your life
open up your life
open up your life
open up your life

Third Chance
NO. I will not give up.
It is me that lets myself box me in.
Oh no! look who has lost control...let go

Do I just take what I need and run?
Please don't ask me for what I can't explain.
Track Name: Maybe I Look It
You're only friends with pretty people, and do you stop to wonder why?
It must be my beauty has faded, or now you know what's underneath.
When I think of you I think of no one- a cheshire grin, an empty stare.

Do you think I'm stupid? Do you think that I don't know?
Well, maybe I look it, but I'm not that naive.

You're afraid of everyone you try to condescend.
We'll all move on, but I think you will stay the same.

Caught between the twisting of your favours in my head,
running through the things you've done and everything you've said
Caught between the twisting of your favours in my head,
I can't take you seriously and you should do the same
Do you think its funny when you lie straight to my face?
yes, I think its funny, so I laugh right at your face.

You're afraid of everyone you try to condescend.
We'll all move on but I think you will stay the same.

Exit with style, while there's still time.
Protect ourselves from what could be.
Exit with style. Help me. Exit with style. Help me. Help me. Help me.

and oh. oh oh oh and oh and....

I'm only friends with pretty people
Do I stop to wonder why?
So when I say that I don't like you
come around and ask again.
Track Name: What Can I Expect?
Waking up in the middle of the night
no one escapes these demons
hidden thoughts, the enormity of time
have woken up from dreaming.
If you can touch the earth, then you will know what's true.
If hold to the sky, then you will keep a place
But no one really knows me, so what can I expect?
What can I expect?

I have forgotten who I am or if I ever thought I knew.
'Cause I thought to progress meant up, but there's no spiral there's a drop! Where am I now?
Would you like an empty kiss all bones no blood all empty lips. I am all lies
You can tell it to your friends. I will not hear. I am not here. Whose voice is this?
I've lost my mind, I'm losing sleep. This ocean's wild, and it is deep.
Nothing. Nothing. is that easy. Nothing. Nothing. is that easy.

If you can touch the earth, then you will know what's true.
If you hold to the sky, then you will keep a place.
But no one really knows me, so what can I expect?
What can I expect?
Track Name: Storm in July
Darker clouds than this I haven't seen
Thunder Sidewalks Daylight Slits
All the city is out, we walk we walk
taste the thick air it doesn't make me want you any less
but you are half way round the globe I hear.
I think you've always been.
What could it be that could make you doubt me? you doubt me.
What could it be that makes you doubt me? you doubt me.
When all I can do is think about you. I think about you. All I can do is think about you. oh, the allure to think about you.

Pattern, Pace, and Flow, we trace the streets
Make like you're heading somewhere
Downpour sudden lakes and traffic lights
people dash into a crowded sheltered patio.
join in the distraction, take a drink! but I am so far gone that it's not even worth the run....
my heart, my heart.
Track Name: Always Never Sure
I have my doubts about you.
What do I know about you?
There's nothing here for me.
There's no one here for me.

Then I open my eyes and the world is awake again.
Scream out loud, punch the sky, sleep away the whole afternoon
Take back all I have said, scratch it out and start something new.

I have my doubts about you.
I won't last long without you.
But it won't stop hurting.
I can't stop hurting.

But I know that I'm not alone.
Yes I know that I'm not alone.
It is true that I'm not alone.
Yes I know that I'm not alone.

La da da da da...

I have my doubts about you.
Track Name: Stretch Out
We're stretched out taking in the warmth of these rocks
we watch the lake, listen to the sounds that should be
Dip our toes, follow the sky as it moves

We lost ourselves in trees
winding through any path and you said
look at all this beauty
this air this living wood
this colour all for us
but I said
I don't think we matter

I mean nothing out here
I mean nothing out here
I mean nothing I mean nothing I mean nothing

Now its late and stars appear throughout the dark
We can't see we listen to the lake flow to shore
and I forget that anywhere else could exist.

I don't think we matter
I mean nothing out here
I mean nothing out here
I mean nothing I mean nothing I mean nothing
