Track Name: Footsteps and Silhouettes
is who i am what i let it be or is who i am what i make it
i think back to the times when i've thunk i'm not drunk
but i am i'm intoxicated

my mind is spinning but i'm nearly home
the early morning sky lights up the road
my fast footsteps soon
turn to slow
turn to slow

so i said some things that i didn't mean
and they all came out before i could breath
and now you're crying and i can't say a word
cos whatever i said i wish you'd never have heard
and now i can't sleep
cos i feel so guilty
at times like these
i tell myself i'll change
but 21 years later i'm still saying the same

my mind is spinning but i'm nearly home
the early morning sky lights up the road
my fast footsteps soon
turn to slow
turn to slow

as if things aren't shit enough without me banging on
so get the sandbags cos the floodgates are open

is who i am what i let it be or is who i am what i make it
i think back to the times when i've thunk i'm not drunk
but i am i'm intoxicated

my mind is spinning but i'm nearly home
the early morning sky lights up the road
my fast footsteps soon
turn to slow
turn to slow
turn to slow
turn to slow

the silhouette of this town reminds me i'm not alone
Track Name: The Cold Boy
you spit your hatred your macho bullshit
you blame the world no more thought over it
someday you'll learn that its axis ain't you
and you cannot blame it for what its done to you

you're cold you're cold

you're cold you're cold there's no warmth in your eyes
you shut yourself in and you self brutalize
and i'm not blind

i text you and told you forget about me
your life is stagnant and i need

you're cold you're cold

you're cold you're cold there's no warmth in your eyes
you shut yourself in and you self brutalize
and i won't cry
Track Name: Skinny Bones
trees make fists trees make fists
in the gutter i see a sky in the gutter i see a sky
no smile on the faces passing

something broke something's gone
and i guess i fucked guess i killed that one

escape to tarmac sweat and traintracks
if we keep quiet noone'll notice
they won't notice

cos tramps like us we make our home
in the dirty sheets and skinny bones
i got skinny bones

skinny bones skinny bones

we sleep in a heap on the floor or the bed
in a tangle of limbs and alcohol breath
i got whisky breath

and tramps like us we make our home
in the dirty sheets and skinny bones
i got skinny bones

skinny bones skinny bones
Track Name: Pin Song
i want to stick a pin between your eyes
to deflate all that makes you blind
and your borrowed politics
really don't mean shit

that you'd highjack a movement and all that it means
when all that you understand is the scene
none of the beautiful places inbetween
its complicated this blue green and grey
and your man made colours here can never stay
things happen so far from the stage

just words no thought but the status that you sought
glass ceiling glass cage you can't embody our rage

its not for you

and this is not a choice i'd make
for any of our sorry sakes
but you don't deserve to wear that crown
so i'll tear it off and throw it around
and release all the pieces up into the wind
cos the atmosphere's all that i know that can sing our song
and from you it sounds so wrong

i want to stick a pin between my eyes
Track Name: Throats
I get angry as thunder and stubborn sometimes
And that doesn't make me appealing
My friends put up with me and I don't know why
But we share the same loving feelings
And I wish I could be more like my mother sometimes
She turned out to be pretty strong
The world's handed her cards that I couldn't have played
And yet she's still carried on
I'm not articulate or witty at best
But people seem to think that I'm funny
But half of the time I think I know why
It's cos I do stupid things most of the time

So I can't write pretty songs or tales worth remembering
I just write down what's on my mind and so
This is what you're hearing

Pretty soon my dreams will rip at the seams cos
I can't find a way to express them
And I know I should find me a new piece of mind
Because someday I know I will forget to
And I don't have intelligence beyond compare
But I try to keep myself informed
Which is hard to do when you hate the news
And newspapers are for spreading on the floor


So I can't write pretty songs or tales worth remembering
I just write down what's on my mind and so
This is what you're hearing

I eat Tofu and vegetables because I think
That animals are our equals
I care more for them than my fellow man
Because mankind is way too destructive
And war is not the answer to the questions we pose
It's simply a way to make money
It's a ridiculous way to satisfy the greed
Of the people that are running our country

So we can all raise our hands
We can all shout
Till the lungs in our chests have caved in and our throats have dried out
We can all raise our hands
We can all shout
To let them know we're the threat and the ones to be worried about
