Track Name: The Oxygen and I
To keep me on the path I chose
I need both feet on the ground
But the slightest breeze and I float away
on a wave of pulsing sound

December came to change a year
but it couldn’t wash the grey
from an urban song or an urban life
do you think there is a way

that we can fly in a watercolour sky?
There is just you
the oxygen and I

I am standing in a filed of sheep
and we are all too scared to move
There are no names or number-plates
there are only points to prove

As December comes to change the year
I have one foot in the air
If we have to stand in the field of sheep
should we learn how not to care

so we can fly in a watercolour sky?
There is just you
the oxygen and I

and we can fly in a watercolour sky?
There is just you
the oxygen and I
Track Name: Unsung Lullaby
Are these weary bones or has the distance grown?
Can I no longer see, or is nothing shown?
It was such a little time, that spoke such little words,
but I hear them still

I headed out to sea through the traffic drone
and your whispers called through a subway grown
but the sea’s too vast to row
and I am cold from having tried
I see the harbour lights – I see the city lights

One day I fell awake
with a slow, urban petrol high
One day I will sleep again
for you are my unsung lullaby

This is all I know cause I don’t know you
How can you steal my words, but never make them true?
It was not a better time, it was not the world I know
why do I want it back?

One day I fell awake
with a slow, urban petrol high
One day I will sleep again
for you are my unsung lullaby

One day I fell awake
with a slow, urban petrol high
One day I will sleep again
for you are my unsung lullaby
Track Name: Naked in My Mind
There is no space left between us
I know only what I can see,
You are naked in my mind
and naked to my hands
You have trapped me, and I am free

I have read the manuscripts that tell of right and wrong
and I prepare what statements I can find
and yet no voice can penetrate the wall that I made strong
for I keep my peace inside

There is no space left between us
I know only what I can see,
You are naked in my mind
and naked to my hands
You have trapped me, and I am free

No one ever told me how to make a soul complete
the pieces I was given leave me cold
I understand the concept, but it doesn’t ease my mind
then you whisper your desires and I am sold

There is no space left between us
I know only what I can see,
You are naked in my mind
and naked to my hands
You have trapped me, and I am free
Track Name: When All the Work is Done
He was not a poor man, like I am not a thief,
but the means to make a life are trapped by our beliefs
I have heard your stories, I smile at every one,
but stories cannot fill our days when all the work is done

If there is truth in silence why am I so afraid?
Is it not the point for all this noise?
I thought I’d hear the answers when all my deeds are paid
and pass on their truth to all the girls and boys

This is not a protest or telephone crusade
I am not your ticking bomb or a cunning masquerade,
It’s just I watch you sitting ‘cause you can’t think where to run
The silence won’t share its answers now all the work is done

If there is truth in silence why am I so afraid?
Is it not the point for all this noise?
I thought I’d hear the answers when all my deeds are paid
and pass on their truth to all the girls and boys

Does it feel like the price is just unfair?
I could never find a way to pay
Must I pay?

If there is truth in silence why am I so afraid?
Is it not the point for all this noise?
I thought I’d hear the answers when all my deeds are paid
and pass on their truth to all the girls and boys
Track Name: How Wrong?
The timing was wrong for the band were still playing,
I was deep in the dream when you brought me to trial

And what can I say that no man has spoken?
How can I deny, when you’ve heard all denials?

I took the path that led to the canyon
all of the years fell before
As I stepped down from the heights of beginning
A small voice inside asked for more

How wrong can I be?
How long before I learn to see?

Despite all your smiles I can see disappointment
It reflects from your eyes – I can see my own face

All of the days that I had wandered the other
road in my mind only strengthen your case

But we are not looking for the same explanation,
my true judge was harsher than you
For you are just sad for the time that was wasted
as I turned from each path that I knew

How wrong can I be?
How long before I learn to see?
Track Name: When Angels Come
I climbed the hill as night began to fall,
watched as the town became a field of lights
Each the light the centre of an empty stage
that we must watch ‘til angels come

I knew my way within the dark that night,
I felt as close as I had ever been
to some impression of a by-gone age,
when we would wait ’til angels came

Across the town the lights were burning out,
as one by one the watchers turned from their stage
To compromise or complete their lives,
do we few wait ‘til angles come?
