Track Name: Sing A little higher
Sing A little higher

Hold my
Feet to the fire
E Slide
Picking on the bijou
For sake your desire
Sing a little higher

Don't chase
'cos you won't find it
It's caught
It's just bad timing
For sake your desire
Sing a little higher

Your self
Is all your having
My peace is all I'm using
For sake my desire
Sing a little higher

I know I know I'm dreaming
I dream I dream I'm knowing
For sake our desire
Sing a little higher
Track Name: Coming around
Coming Around


Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around
Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around

I smell the beast a coming
I taste its senses sharpening
I see the fear as it builds
When they hear it snarling
They feel their power crumbling
They feel their feet are stumbling
Their falling down to the ground and their fevers pumping

Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around
Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around

Well their four to the floor
as their crawling for the door
its seems fair, they never prepared
when they've seen this all and more before
they feel the fists are falling
they hear the hunters call
let them go you do not know
how hard they try when the wait is falling

Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around
Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around

Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around
Coming around, Coming around
Its coming back around
Track Name: Mr Destiny
Mr Destiny

Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late
Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late

Mr Destiny was awoken to sound
of the sun dripping down
she never was blessed
of her mr destiny
he said

Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late
Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late

What fates impose
we all must abide
by and by
your do well not to resist
the wind and the tied
don't fight the tied

Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late
Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late

If it is now it is not to come
if it is not to come it is now
if it is not now it is yet to come

Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late
Oh i'm sorry Im late
said i'm sorry i'm too late
Track Name: Hang me on the line
Hang me on the line


Hang me on the line
Hang me till I'm dry
I'm never gonna get any better than wet
If I'm not hanging on the line


I was going to fast
To save my glass of wine
I'd been drinking
Till I was drunken dry


The barman said take another dose
and I propose that you might bet,
that I came home pretty wet

When's it gonna rain ?
It's been fretting all day that it's coming our way
When's it gonna rain?
You better stay awake
'cos I don't want to be found on a puddle on the ground


Hang me on the line
Hang me till I'm dry
I'm never gonna get any better than wet
If I'm not hanging on the line
Track Name: Pay no mind
Pay No mind


I'm still scared of certain types of change
Especially the ones we all must make
My feet burn o' the waters still to hot for me
The summer falls from it's frame
and only emptiness remains
only emptiness remains

You're still delicate and wise
You've known it all the while
Feel the breeze
Seems uncertain which direction to proceed
Chance to seize has passed
now it's no longer guaranteed
It's no longer what we need


You tell me what to think and what to do
and I pay you no mind
Until enough time has passed
to make it too late to decide
Too late to decide


Come let the last taste of water touch your lips
Don't deprive your senses for there's little else to sip
Cold feel burns from temper that's all laid out
My hard thoughts turn
but there's still so little time to work it out
Only time can work it out


You tell me what to think and what to do
and I pay you no mind
Until enough time has passed
to make it too late to decide

You tell me what to think and what to do
and I pay you no mind
Until enough time has passed
to make it too late to decide
Too late to decide
Track Name: Gloomy Deep
Gloomy deep

One day I'm going down in the water
Down in the gloomy deep
I'll be dangling my knees
Down in the gloomy deep
Supping on the silent water
Down in the gloomy deep
On the bayful river leathe

Down in the Gloomy Deep
Down in the Gloomy Deep

Drop by drop
My being is forgot
Drip by drip
My state will slowly slip
Drop by drop
My being is forgot
Drip by drip
My state will slowly slip
From my hand into the water's grip

Slow and silent the water flows
down in the gloomy deep
Trickling out my memory goes
down in the gloomy deep
Draining all life's eagerness
down in the gloomy deep
Lost in sweet forgetfulness
down in the gloomy deep
down in the gloomy deep


Drop by drop
My being is forgot
Drip by drip
My state will slowly slip
Drop by drop
My being is forgot
Drip by drip
My state will slowly slip
From my hand into the water's grip


We will come here before the fire
down in the gloomy deep
to where our business will be
down in the gloomy deep
before we do his errands
down in the gloomy deep
on the bayfull river leathe
down in the gloomy deep
down in the gloomy deep
down in the gloomy deep
down in the gloomy deep
Track Name: Puppet king
Puppet king

A world ruled by a puppet king
With wooden glazed eyes, only hollow within
One hand raised high to inspire the masses
The other hand behind his back
Fingers crossed and ready to crack
High above in the shadows
The puppet king strings rise
To the windigo's cold grasp
And the truth that's hidden from their eyes.

And it laughs to itself
As it pulls on his strings
It whispers in the kings ear
'Soon our strings will grow and touch everything'

Riches and greed is how we'll deceive
Said the voice from the Shadows
Their hearts and their minds will soon concede
If we promise them a life of ease
Sure enough came the people
Frenzied and willing
to do anything for their king
As long as he's still giving
So they stood up in their lines
waiting to receive but
little did they know this tempting show
would bring them to their knees.

And it laughs to itself
As it pulls on his strings
It whispers in the kings ear
'Soon our strings will grow and touch everything'
Everything
Everything

The people shouted out to their king
As they fell to theirs knees
They said 'how could you let this happen?'
'how could you just let this be?'
But the words were lost inside
The puppet kings hollow hide
and the fingers still behind his back
began to split, splinter, snap and crack
Then out came the demon said I have you all
Its taken some time and my cunning mind
But now I have you all

Well the people pulled on their ropes
with all of their might
but there's no use to fuss and fight
cos he has you all

Now he has you all
Track Name: Silly little thing
Silly Little thing

She's a silly little thing
always waiting in the wings
with no one around to confide
her feet hold firmly in the line

The cannon shoots her out
as the beat fears to stop
she's hearing all about
the winds of change are blowing out

Oh such a silly thing
she's waiting in the wings of her

Sleepy little town
where all the young boys run around
she can say what she means
there's no pressure to believe
In her sleepy little town
she'll come on in leaps and bounds
you can see all the signs left behind
look for her there

Held in a big black picture book
That's still hanging on the wall
it's never had a second look
since the warrior kings fall
now the first frost has come
its shining brightly from their guns
she' always feared to walk alone
their always there to take her home
she's such a silly thing
waiting in the wings of her

Sleepy little town
where all the young boys run around
she can say what she means
there's no pressure to believe
In her sleepy little town
she'll come on in leaps and bounds
you can see all the signs left behind
look for her there

in her Sleepy little town
she'll come on in leaps and bounds
she can say what she means
there's no pressure to believe
In her sleepy little town
she makes the young boys run arround
you can see all the signs left behind
look for her there
look for her there
Track Name: Four little words
Four Little Words

Lately it comes back
to these four little words
Darling you know that I've never said them
when it comes to this you know I always fear the worst
I like to live my life so careless

Sometimes these words don't know just where to belong
When my minds too loud for my thoughts to hear
I know I don't deserve to make you wait so long
When these are the days I know I will hold so dear


Just wait a little longer
Until I finished my song girl
Just wait a little longer
I still live in my own world


In order these letters will ring out eternally
While ambivalent sight is sharpening strife
To tumble these sounds is to shout out finality
Not to wander through life with age passing by

Now I know that I don't need a question mark
If I scribbled these shapes out on to the page
Would it fear less if I took it out from the dark?
There's no telling how long your patience will wait


Just wait a little longer
Until I finished my song girl
Just wait a little longer
I still live in my own world


Sometimes these words don't know where to belong
In my carelessness, in my finished song
When my thoughts are too loud for my heart to hear
and know you don't deserve to pay so dear
please wait, just a little bit longer


just wait a little longer
Ive finished my song girl
Just wait a little longer
I'm still in my own world


Lately it comes back
to these four little words
Track Name: Killing time
Killing Time

I never wanted to be
an idol singer of empty days
I wish I had faith like
a faithful one
its a struggling taste that
lasts too long

There's one thing that I could do
I know I could learn to do this
cos when it feels easy its easy to do
it sure feels easy just sitting here with you
so easy just killing time with you

The weight of these words is dropping off
before all is spoken of
Its my mistake and ill not take it back
its one of those things like happiness

There's one thing that I could do
I know I could learn to do this
cos when it feels easy its easy to do
it sure feels easy just lying here with you
so easy just killing time with you
yeah its easy killing our time

We better take this time
while nothing we've got
catch the last
from the nearest roof top
I feel the giving up is near
but not yet close enough for me to fear.

And there's one thing that I could do
I know I could learn to do this
cos when it feels easy its easy to do
it sure feels easy just sitting here with you
so easy just killing time with you

There's one thing that I could do
I know I could learn to do this
cos when it feels easy its easy to do
it sure feels easy just being here with you
so easy just killing time with you
Yeah its easy killing my time
Track Name: Work
Work

It's a struggle to proceed
Just can't find the time I need
I'm too busy for the sun
It's been and gone before I'm done

It's changed from all past summers seen
No time for beer on the village green
We'd love to do what once we've done
But we've got more time for work and less for fun


Now you've got to work work work
till your hands turn to leather
There was a time when you were young as high as a feather

Now you work work work
It's tough all year round
But it's a bummer in the summer when the party's going down


Dusty men walk dusty roads
from door to door they carry their loads
They make the deal with sweaty hands
They know they're slaves to supply and demand

The teacher grasps for more knowledge from the shelf
She barely has a second though for her self
A mother worked her fingers to the bone
She also had no time for own


Now you've got to work work work
till your hands turn to leather
There was a time when you were young as high as a feather

Now you work work work
It's tough all year round
But it's a bummer in the summer when the party's going down


Somewhere there's a party going down
Somewhere there's a party going down
Somewhere there's a party going down
Somewhere there's a party going down
