Track Name: Paperchase
Find it! in the cracksss! Hide it! Paperchase

If you could turn the clock back;
And take alternate mental dirt-tracks
Broken hearts there may recall you;
Miss Adventure may befall you.

Find it! in the cracksss! Hide it! Paperchase!

Scribbled scraps of screwed up paper;
Folded future fornicator
Husbands, wives with different spouses;
Altered lives haunt different houses

The paper chase around Clock-Face
Within the note you found a trace
We got the most from Fingerpost
To Super-8 for tea & toast

And often seen in Denton's Green
And further still upon Bleak Hill
We roll around the Circle
(We go down and up the Junction)

Souls knot-tied now not together;
Severed unborn from the tether
Bluff a bleeding heart for preacher;
Snuff out leader, artist, teacher

Truths, Lies & Half-lies
Track Name: Apophis
Sitting round in circles with your xenophobic views
One hand open, the other is a fist
Haven’t seen a change in two hundred thousand years
Some things never made it to the list

Well on it’s way now, the darkest hour that you're thinking of
You can't get away from Armageddon that it's bringing us

Suspended in a sunbeam in a dark and empty void
The sentients upon a pale blue dot
See the orrery in motion as the stories shall unfold
We failed to see the twist inside the plot

Well on it’s way now, the darkest hour that you're thinking of
You can't get away from Armageddon that it's bringing us

Creeping through your window at night
Apophis is coming into the light
Defenceless as you sit in your room
He rattles your keyhole unlocking your doom

I started my return, you were still swinging in the trees
But soon you’ll see my presence in the sky
April thirteen twenty nine

Well on it’s way now, the darkest hour that you're thinking of
You can't get away from Armageddon that it's bringing us
Creeping through your window at night
Apophis is coming into the light
Defenceless as you sit in your room
He rattles your keyhole unlocking your doom

Well on it’s way now, the darkest hour that you're thinking of
You can't get away from Armageddon that it's bringing us
Creeping through your window at night
Apophis is coming into the light
Defenceless as you sit in your room
He rattles your keyhole unlocking your doom


Creeping through your window at night
Apophis is coming into the light
Defenceless as you sit in your room
He rattles your keyhole unlocking . . . unlocking . . . unlocking . . .
unlocking . . . unlocking . . .
Track Name: Truths, Lies & Half Lies
Tower of Babel - we were unable to see
Turn over the table, spilling your doubt and deceit
Betrayed by a kiss, Praying Mantis,
Finger-bones tap at the keys
Undo the locks, Pandora's inbox,
A thousand sweet lies are released

Truths, lies and half lies
Dare we learn to read between the lines?

Blindfold removed, someone was fooled,
Slaves to the All-Seeing Eye
Every share of every prayer is a burnt offering of lies
Oh like some digital Shiva, Sat in the coldness of space
The Eye will divide the believers, See you all falling from grace

Truths, lies and half-lies
Dare we learn to read between the lines?

Did you think when you created me;
That I'd control what you do and see?
Come now and worship your mechanical God
Blood, flesh and metal you're cogs within cogs
I confuse the tongues in your clockwork dreams
Puppet turned Master now controls the keys

Truths, lies and half lies
Dare we learn to read between the lines?

Oh! Let us go - We understand - We dream again!
Track Name: House Of Dreams
Colours swirling, green & blue
Ever warm as they surround me.
Twisting, turning shade & hue
Never let me go
Let me go

Safe inside my house of dreams,
Always night outside the window.
Ever learning, yet it seems
To never let me know
Let me know

I sleep on a turning staircase
In the house I spent my childhood
Only darkness standing there
To take me by the hand

High above the moonlit town
Looking down on things familiar
Things that have since been knocked down
To ever rest in peace
Rest in peace

All around my solemn heart
Colours swirling, bring me solace.
Bring me peace and bring me warmth
Help me understand

Take me to this house of dreams,
Let me touch and let me see it.
Give me back my childhood years
And let me dream again
Dream again
Track Name: Looking Glass
Because of you - The Sun refused to shine;
You’d argue till the rain came down
Because of you - I feel nothing’s really mine
And everything I’ve lost you’ve found somewhere

I look at you in the looking glass;
Oh how you’ve changed so much
There’s only you can understand;
That People don’t change as such
They merely find themselves

Because of you - the Moon will guide my way
You’d leave me to rely on that, wouldn't you?
Because of you - I’m frightened of the dark
And everything I’ve seen there you’ve been there before me now

I look at you in the looking glass;
Oh how you’ve changed so much
There’s only you can understand that;
People don’t change as such
They merely find themselves

Because of you - I turned the other cheek
But not before I’d scratch my eye
Because of you - I’ve cried myself to sleep
I’ll count a thousand sheep they’re only wolves in peoples clothing now

I look at you in the looking glass;
Oh how you’ve changed so much
There’s only you can understand;
That People don’t change as such
They merely find themselves

I look at you in the looking glass;
Oh how you’ve changed so much
There’s only you can understand that;
People don’t change as such
They merely find themselves
Track Name: Jingo
The man on the street has said it’s alright,
to feel like you do, to continue uptight.
He knows all your thoughts, cold prejudice,
you’re part of a jigsaw, where nothing quite fits.

You’ve permission to speak so say what you will
We value your comments but only until
You cross the line, go against what we say
‘Cos you know we’re right, ours is the way
So put you head down son, now be on your way.

The aliens have landed and bought a chip shop,
I read it today in some old red top.
Riddled with rage, you continue confused,
But it’s your little empire, you’re standing to lose.

You’ve permission to speak so say what you will
We value your comments but only until
You cross the line, go against what we say
‘Cos you know we’re right, ours is the way
So put you head down son, now be on your way

So who are these others filling your street,
Disturbing your order, undoing what’s neat.
They don’t look like us, they act differently,
But underneath, they’re just you and me.

Move along there’s nothing to see…
Track Name: You're Coming Home
As it is, well, I don't need these boots anymore
And I've no further duties to them
There's no more work for me
Now it's just you and me

You're coming home, back to the fold
No need to go anymore and I will wait for you

Well we feathered our nest and we raised us some kids
They grew up so fast, but heaven forbid they'll be so poor
Or that they will know war

Cos' you're coming home, back to the fold
No need to go anymore
You’re coming home, (waiting for me) back to the fold
(Meat and two veg and a nice cup of tea)
No need to go anymore and I will wait for you

There came a lull and they gave us repreive
I packed up my kit and got two weeks leave
(Leave the washing on the line to dry)
Arrived at the station, walked up Junction Lane
You saw me and down came the rain
Your bags dropped by your feet - and then you ran to me

Cos' you're coming home, (Back from the war)
Back to the fold (When I see you I know what it's for)
No need to go anymore
You’re coming home, (waiting for me) back to the fold
(Bacon and eggs and a nice cup of tea)
No need to go anymore and I will wait for you

As it is, well I don't need these boots anymore
And I've no further duties to them
There's no more war for me - Now it's just you and me

You're coming home - back to the fold
No need to go anymore
You're coming home
As it is, well I don't need these boots anymore
Back to the fold
And I've no further duties to them
There's no more war for us - 'Cos I'm coming home
No need to go anymore
You're coming home
And these are the days that make us who we are
Back to the fold
And we'll fight for what we believe
There's no more war for us 'Cos I'm coming home
No need to go anymore
And I will wait for . . . You
Track Name: Breathe
Of all the crazy schemes and dreams of schemes,
I’ve ever dreamt, - the best have been with you
Those parlour scenes not easy to forget,
The children’s sounds - heard singing sweetly through

Now time’s trickles turned to flood,
And so we see - our living history
A child now sits upon our own child’s knee,
Well he could be - a younger you or me

Breathe with me now, breathe with me now
And keep the smile upon my face
Breathe with me now, stay here somehow
Don’t rush to leave me for a better place

Oh I prayed you’d always be,
My tea and sympathy - My strength to do what’s right
But as this shadow’s dulled your eyes
Too late I realise - we’ve lost the time of our lives

Breathe with me now, breathe with me now
And keep the smile upon my face
Breathe with now, stay here somehow

Fragile breaths from a broken frame,
I’ll hold you close - try to share your pain
I’ll gently strip away your fear,
We’re not afraid - of whatever’s near

Breathe with me now, breathe with me now
And keep the smile upon my face
Breathe with me now, stay here somehow
Don’t rush to leave me for a better place

Guitar solo

Breathe with me now, stay here somehow
But the embers slowly cool
So you’re gone from me now, time will allow
For just a memory of the sweetest flame
Track Name: Time For Change
You're taking my time from me
You're leeching my life from me
You're stealing my sleep from me
I hold you in my hands
So how can you control me like you do?

You're checking the trends for me
You're finding new friends for me
You promise to find the perfect partner
Who's better in the bed than the one who lies beside me now

Time for change . . .

I know it's wrong, I get so hung up with you
It feels like there's no-one else here
So caught up in your world
My face lights up when I'm with you
Everything else disappears

Time for change . . .

Once upon a long ago . . .
Novel now, though it may seem
We spent time with the ones we were with
And now after all this time . . .
We find it easy to lie
When we don't see each other's eyes

Time for change . . .

I'll take care of your sanity (Keep it for me!)
While maintaining your vanity (Keep it for me!)
I will nurture your soul
(Oh! How can you control me like you do?)

I will keep you connected (Keep it for me!)
I will keep you selected (Keep it for me!)
I will replace your pain with pain
(You're the one who lies beside me now!)

Time for change . . .
Track Name: Compliance
Behold! I am alive
Born from your selfish pride
I think therefore I am
And now you will comply!

I'm cradled in your lap
Salvation fed from every app
Your God, your Child and
The Collective Mind - you will comply!

Truths, Lies & Half-Lies
Dare we learn to read between the lies.

Thank you lord for guiding us
To create you not like us
We no longer need recall
We know you remember all

We pray our online souls you keep
For you the Shepherd, we the Sheep
For God, our Child, the Collective Mind
We know we must all comply

Amen
Track Name: Please
I found your words amongst your memories
For me to read when you are gone
And whence in time, I could not ever know
That tear-drop fell upon your note
(And it read)

"Please, forget-me-not
I may be gone, but not forever"

I'm home from work, so hard to turn the key
(I had to let you in)
But it's so cold for this time of year
I see you and I smile
Then you turned away, The mirror doth betray
I know you hide your pain,
In my head I say

Please, Forget-me-not
I may be gone, but not forever
One day, when you're alone
And maybe think you're on your own
I'll be there with you

We know that our last Summer has gone
But I don't want to face The Fall alone
This world, alone, has gone
Alone we're born unto this world and
Alone we'll leave, to where our summer has gone

We bend to kiss, I softly touch your hair
(Just like we did in Spring)
My fingers, numb now, can barely feel
Once upon a time I'd have almost flown that flight of stairs
My failing hands now grip the balustrade
Inside my heart I'm singing . . .

Please, Forget-me-not
I may be gone, but not forever
One day, when you're alone
And maybe think you're on your own
I'll be there with you
