Track Name: Hyper Chondriac
Your rest fills me with envy,
Your pale face with greed.
Your white coat doesn’t scare me,
It only fuels my need.
Those words do not impair me,
I believe what I believe.

Scream. Scream out all your symptoms.
Scream. I can’t wait to rip into you.

They sleep in the asylum,
Dreams of being sane.
I just wait here in silence,
To be admitted once again.
I put myself through torture,
Used needles point the way.
I do not need your textbook,
To tell me that I’m sick.
Your smiles patronise me,
And my heart begins to sink.
I’m not a hypochondriac,
I don’t care what you think.

Scream. Scream out all your symptoms.
Scream. I can’t wait to rip into you.
Track Name: When I Met the Carpet Cleaner
I have a friend, he’s six feet tall, he drives a green car.
Working as a police man, he has a blue hat.
Once he found a knife in the centre of my back.
It was from my so called friend, turns out he’s a twat.

I will ask for all that sings loudly of burning trees,
Before I hear you speak to me of evil.

Behind your eyes, they’re watching me while I sleep.
But in this state of futile beings I’m haunting you.

I have a friend, he’s very small, he rides a red bike.
Working as a chimney sweep, he has a big brush.
On the side, he has a gun, and he likes to hunt,
Wild deer, but he shot me, turns out he’s a cunt.

I will ask for all that sings loudly of burning me,
Before I hear you speak to me of evil.

And unless you know, all that you find in a person it just
Might not be true. And until you know, you just might find
That the person he hides right inside you.

Behind your eyes, they’re watching me while I sleep.
Keep these inside and I will leave in peace.
But in this state of futile beings I’m haunting you.
Track Name: Vice-Like
Reaching ahead like everything in our sight
Needs to be held into place to keep our minds right.
Seconds to dim the light, the grip is vice like.
Emptying the canister out into the cold night,
Out right, hold it at shoulder height.
Bitterness fading as grounded litter takes flight.
Summarise your type, typify the Zeitgeist.
Fish without a bike!

Lying still, warm inside, whole until, we’re swept aside.
Know where you’re placed before it’s too late to hide.

Take a dive (Take a deep breath and let the current take you).
Keep the faith ‘til you’ve died (‘til you’re no longer alive).
You’re in doubt?
It’s vice like.

There’s nothing left for you, but everything for me.
Just grab it with both hands, it’s yours eternally.
One thing I didn’t say, is that in every way,
Just about every day, you’re only a stop away!
And everything that you see, is everything that you need,
And at one hundred degrees, you will get around with ease.
And now with one back space, the world forgets your face,
Just listen to that bass, it’s all gone to waste!

Lying still, warm inside, whole until, we’re swept aside.
Know where you’re placed before it’s too late to hide.

Take a dive (Take a deep breath and let the current take you).
Keep the faith ‘til you’ve died (‘til you’re no longer alive).
You’re in doubt?
Right! This is vice like!

The last stop now, you’re right on top now,
And everything that you want is it a what now?
They’re all cut up now, like you didn’t know how,
The ends around the corner, just see it out!

Lying still, warm inside, whole until, we’re swept aside.
Know where you’re placed before it’s too late to hide.

Take a dive (take a deep breath and let the current take you).
Keep the faith ‘til you’ve died (‘til you’re no longer alive).
You’re in doubt?
Track Name: Bound in Words
Ebony streams, forensic ecstacy.
Infinite leaves, violet controversy.
(One to nine now in the same line.)
Meadow of flames, embers of sympathy.
Surprisingly, you’re my theocracy.
(One to nine now in half time.)

The symbolistic symphony, the ultimate biography,
The mist that must be cleansed to save us from the tide!

When will you see you’re not the only one that’s bound in words.
The holding place for all you believe is waiting underneath the world.

Plutonic words of vast colatitude.
A weeping void, intrinsic interlude.
The flaming rain, at crimson altitude.
Anatomy of drifting solitude.
(One to nine now in half time.)

Within fluidic sanctitude, we’ll save the best ‘til last for you,
This cist must be removed. Nine lives and still you lose!

When will you see you’re not the only one that’s bound in words.
The holding place for all you believe is waiting underneath the world.


1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 GO!


When will you see you’re not the only one that’s bound in words.
The holding place for all you believe is waiting underneath the world.
Track Name: The Retrospector
She’s yet to pull the trigger on your life.
She’s yet to do the last twist of the knife.
She wants to watch you burn
Before she blows out the flame
And puts an end to your pain.

She’s poison, don’t breathe in, she’s bad for your health.
Smoke lost in fire, cold desire, she’ll bring you down.

You wonder why she’s still in your dreams.
Although she’s tearing you apart at the seams.
She’s everything you want
And yet she’s everything you want to destroy.

She’s poison, don’t breathe in, she’s bad for your health.
Smoke lost in fire, cold desire, she’ll bring you down.
Falling to pieces, sleepless but dreaming, she’s in your veins.
She’ll take you, make you, break you. You’ll never be the same.
Track Name: Imogen's Painting
Tiny whirls and swirls of finger prints.
No-one knows just where you’ve been.

But the smile on your face gives nothing away.
It’s all just sunshine and finger paintings.

So lend me some time,
Anytime you’ve got.
To tell me what I’m not and just what I am,
I’ll be ready for you.
So when the mess in my head,
Comes out of my mouth instead.
I’ll be ready with sunshine and finger paints.

Tell me just what you have done to yourself.
How can I cope when your arms are laced in red.

And the smile on your face gives nothing away.
It’s all just sunshine and finger paintings.

So lend me some time,
Anytime you’ve got.
To tell me what I’m not and just what I am,
I’ll be ready for you.
So when the mess in my head,
Comes out of my mouth instead.
I’ll be ready with sunshine and finger paints.

Tiny whirls and swirls of finger prints.
No-one knows just where you’ve been.
Track Name: Flicker
Walk the line and tow the earth in my tread.
If there is a god,
Well I don’t know what he’s playing at.
All I know is I’ve been.

Somewhere, and I’ve done some things.

And every now and then
I tell the people what they want to hear.
Fill their ears with lies and sweet surprises
And they don’t realise, that I’m just someone.

There’s no home,
So where the hell is the heart?
I cross the finish line
Before they’ve even shot the gun.
All I know is I’m going.

Somewhere, and I’ve done some things.

And every now and then
I tell the people what they want to hear.
I’ll fill their ears with lies and sweet surprises
But they won’t realise, that I’m just someone.

You say you’ve never seen scars like mine.
You say you’ve never seen stars
Like the ones in my eyes.
You say you’ve never seen a girl
So blind to her own life.
Sleep well, sleep safe tonight.

Walk the line and tow the earth in my tread.
Track Name: Between Blue & Green
Hands like lace and bone.
Look how it fits, bit by bit, like a jigsaw.
Don’t want to know, don’t want to go,
I’ll carry your world, for you.
Maybe you’ll find your way back home,
Maybe there’s something you don’t know.
Maybe, okay. Maybe not.

Today I’m finding a way, to believe you can hear me,
Can you see me wherever you are.
Keep your soul in a jar on the night stand,
Your heart in the palm of my hand,
Please will you hear me wherever you are?

Eyes like sinking ships.
Somewhere between a blue and a green,
Falling deeper.
Don’t want to watch, don’t want to leave
I’ll carry your world for you.
Maybe someday they’ll bring you home,
Maybe there’s something no-one knows.
Maybe, okay. Maybe not.

Today I’m finding a way, to believe you can hear me,
Can you see me wherever you are.
Keep your soul in a jar on the night stand,
Keep your heart in the palm of my hand,
Please will you hear me wherever you are?

Keep your soul in a jar on the night stand,
Keep your heart in the palm of my hand.
Keep your soul in a jar on the night stand,
Your heart in the palm of my hand.

I’m finding a way, to believe you can hear me,
Can you see me wherever you are.
Keep your soul in a jar on the night stand,
Keep your heart in the palm of my hand,
Please will you hear me wherever you are?
Say you can hear me wherever you are.
Please will you hear me wherever you are?
Track Name: Funktuality
Been waiting for the day, but it’s been to long.
Just pick up the beat and carry on.
The rhythmn’s still flowing when the river’s dry.
But if I’m living the music then I’m living my life.
People criticise but I’m hypnotised,
I’m blinded by the thud of the mainstream lies.
Pick up your coat and get your bag unpacked,
‘cause when you hear this you’re never going back.

Forget about reality and actuality,
‘cause as a matter of fact you’ve got to get down with Funktuality.
Forget about gravity and the dead society,
‘cause if you’re asking me, you’ve got to get down with Funktuality.

Don’t wanna’ know where you’ve gone a been,
Whatever it takes to bring the money in.
Whatever you do to get through the night,
If you’re doing it with soul then you’re doing it right.
Hang down the bait and hold on tight,
Wait for the world to take a bite.
You can scream all you want but you won’t be heard,
‘cause if you want voice then “Funk”’s the word.
Picking up bits of your life from the floor,
Thinking you can’t go on no more.
Down your glass it’s time to go,
Take a leap and you never know.
Try to understand the way the worlds turning,
But the slap of the bass has left the world blurring.
Can’t see the light through your closed eyes,
So open up and give this a try.

Forget about reality and actuality,
‘cause as a matter of fact you’ve got to get down with Funktuality.
Forget about gravity and the dead society,
‘cause if you’re asking me, you’ve got to get down with Funktuality.

Hang down the bait and hold on tight,
Wait for the world to take a bite.
You can scream all you want but you won’t be heard,
‘cause if you want voice then funks the word.

Forget about reality and actuality,
‘cause as a matter of fact you’ve got to get down with Funktuality.
Forget about gravity and the dead society,
‘cause if you’re asking me, you’ve got to get down with Funktuality.
Track Name: Nobodies
In this town without a name.
There is no gaze or eyes to fear.
Stuck inside a faceless game.
Of wasted identity.

Come join us. We don’t know who you are we don’t care,
Don’t want to know, step through your skin and throw it away.

Give us your name, give us your face, be nobody.

Come haunt this town without a name.
Roam the silent streets in vain.
Though vanity is pointless in this place,
Without a face.
With us you are nothing,
Without you’re a dream
Come join us, tear off your mask.
Erode your emotions,
Live as statue, be nobody.

Come join us. We don’t know who you are we don’t care,
Don’t want to know, step through your skin and throw it away.

Give us your name, give us your face, be nobody.
Don’t be scared just be nobody.
Track Name: Clap : /
My heats going up, but I’m going down.
The ache that comes, from having you round.
Something’s happening, I’m bursting out.
The passing pain, got to let it out.
You’re the primary infection, the never healing scar.
We wanted to play games, but it’s gone too far.
It started with a tingle, it started with a yearn.
It’s ending with a crash and it’s ended with a burn.

I need a little bit of cherry pie,
A bit of heaven in the starry sky,
It’s all going wrong.
I need a little bit less of a lie,
A bit of cream for my cherry pie,
You’re going wrong.

You were easy to love, and easy to catch.
My eyes sealed shut, I can’t look back.
How do you run from something, attached to you.
My skin erupting, tearing through.
I can’t go on, now I have to wear.
Your little secret, that you had to share.
Your symptoms may last, for only ten days.
But mine last forever, because of your ways.

I need a little bit of cherry pie,
A bit of heaven in the starry sky,
It’s all going wrong.
I need a little bit less of a lie,
A bit of cream for my cherry pie,
You’re going wrong.
Track Name: Georgina
She moves like a dancer, perfection in grace.
Then when she smiles, I swear for a while
She lights up the place.
But she’s stuck in the middle, she’s stuck in the dark.
I just want to take her and hold her and say,
“How beautiful, you are”.

So when you’re feeling statue still
But the world keeps spinning round.
Find this song a wrote for you, the little cloud.
You are the silver lining,
I can’t tell you how.
You shine, you do.
Don’t you know?
You shine, you do.

Face like an angel, a laugh like a song.
Her eyes’ are like diamonds and, oh, how they shine
Like nothing is wrong.
She walks on a tightrope, but let’s not forget.
That if she should fall, there’s no fear at all,
I’m her safety net.

So when you’re feeling statue still
But the world keeps spinning round.
Find this song a wrote for you, the little cloud.
You are the silver lining,
I can’t tell you how.
You shine, you do.
Don’t you know?
You shine, you do.

You’re the star, I wish you could see it.
You’re the star, can’t you see it?

So when you’re feeling statue still
But the world keeps spinning round.
Find this song a wrote for you, the little cloud.
You are the silver lining,
I can’t tell you how.
You shine, you do.
Don’t you know?
You shine, you do.
Track Name: The Swindler
The letters move across,
And tell me what to say.
You’d better mind your head,
If you don’t know the way.
And well if you zone out,
And you can’t get back in.
Just let me tell you now,
That you will never win.

And you write it down
With a bottle in your hand.
And you ask yourself
Do I really understand?

Don’t really understand,
What makes you be this way.
Tell people what to do,
Tell people what to say.
And with that stupid hair,
And with them stupid clothes,
That stupid fucking face,
That stupid fucking nose.

And you write it down
With a bottle in your hand.
And you ask yourself
Do I really understand?
Track Name: Steel Knives or Silver
After the war of our words and the wounds from the hate,
your words they cut deeper than steel knives or silver.
Pulling away at your heart and my mind.

And it feels like you won’t ever attempt to see
The one thing that helps you and then.

You always find something that I cannot know.
And until you realise, there’s nothing but understanding.

But then it comes to mind that it’s not always so simple to ignore, and you remember that it’s a long road
Until you’re completely secure.

Then you start to see the right way and stop
Ripping apart at my heart and my mind.

You always find something that you do not know.
And until you realise, there’s nothing left to understand.
You’ll always find something that I cannot know.
And until you realise, there’s nothing but understanding.

It’s like I never really get it.
It’s not too late to come home and start again,
And realise everything that you have done is okay.
There’s just one more thing I should say, that.

Next time you’re feeling like, the world’s off your side,
Just come home and be free. I know that it feels like
The worst thing, but I promise it’s all in your mind.

You don’t need to feel like this now, I can help this
Just if you will listen, please.
(I know you find my help the worst thing inside)

You always find something that you do not know,
And until you realise, there’s nothing left to understand.
You’ll always find something that I cannot know,
And until you realise there’s nothing but understanding.

But in the end I’ll always love you.
