Track Name: Ordinary World
Falling for the worst,
Standing with his stolen purse.
The time & the date, both at quarter-to-eight.
Drifting out of line
With fashions pushing for better times.
Heard the brush of the sands they were beaten by hands.
Our misery.

Open all the doors,
Smash the windows and strip the halls.
Push the cobwebs away – let the spiders stay.
Such an overwhelming first,
Shredded shackles; broken curse.
Watch the tips of the trees as they curl in the breeze.
Our misery.

Move out to the coast,
Give up lying and make the most.
Let the cool water flow as we passively grow.
An ordinary world just might take a second whirl
Push the boat on the lake
Watch me tremble and shake.
Our misery.
Track Name: River Running
Watch as we're like a river running wild.
Haunting like two ghosts made out of ice.
Watch as we're like a river running wild.
Haunting like the ghosts in our minds.

Watch as we're like a river running wild.
Haunting like two ghosts made out of ice.
Watch as we're like a river running wild.
Haunting like the ghosts in our minds.

Well you can say what you want
But all I can say is that we had a good run.
And you will think all you want
But all I can say is that we had a good run.
Track Name: All These Years
Oh, my friends, how you've changed
All these years I've been away.
And it's only now that it's hit my skull like a ton of bricks,
Oh, the things we'll fix.

Oh, my dear, how you've changed
All these years I've been away.
And it's only 'cause you said you're lonely,
And I thought you'd care.
Oh, now where's your flair?
Well it's dark outside, and I have no light.
And it's only now that I feel pushed out.

I want you there
– a thought for you.
Track Name: Clay
Who is the one who has only just gone and drained the bay?
Come and tell me why they could never bleed it dry
Come and tell me that not even one day
I could drown in it all there are just so many thoughts floating round.
I'm surrounded by it all from the ground to the wall.

Clay, like the one who has only just gone and pushed away.
Come and tell me how they will never be allowed
Come and tell me that you want it your way.
I could drown in it all there are just too many thoughts floating round.
I'm surrounded by it all from the ground to the wall.
Get out of here.

Lose yourself in any way.
