Track Name: "If Trumpets Were Swords"
IF TRUMPETS WERE SWORDS

Try and tame the real world, force a smile upon your face
It's not until you've seen the world that you relinquish centre stage
Try in vain to free your world from the ennui of these days

*
Track Name: "Destroy, Repair"
DESTROY, REPAIR

Lights are out and now you're worlds away
I'm the 'here' to your 'there'
Crave asylum for a stolen day
Would it answer your prayers?

It's like five hundred volts shot through these broken wires
Lead us not from temptation, don't harbour your desire

Lost myself there, now the moment's gone
Only reach through with words
Spark a fervour latent for so long
Be the key to my verse

It's like five hundred volts shot through these broken wires
Lead us not from temptation, don't harbour your desire

Lie, Defend, Distrust, Despair
Cry, Defame, Destroy, Repair

It's like five hundred volts course through these opened eyes
Lead us into temptation, you spin these wheels awry

Track Name: "Bunker #20"
BUNKER #20

Stay the night, you don't have to
Though this fire won’t contain itself
If it's not right, what's the world to know
Of tired discontented souls

Drown your ire, raise a glass tonight
And drink to all that never was
As we conspire, question those who write of
'Better to have loved and lost'

Fade the lights on this sultry stage
Embrace before the curtain calls
Lines of white curb my clouds of grey
All else exiled beyond these walls

Would it go too far to take a ride and never stop
Till the ties that bind are left for dust
And all those dreams you held fight back
Shelved ideals remain intact
Moral compass gone south
And stolen moments mean you keep the dogs at bay
Seize the day and make the two-headed beast
Then carve your names upon the wall like lovers
When it's all said and done you wouldn't run
Because your song's been sung
And you care more for your young than yourself
That's the way it's meant to be
Abiding infelicity

*
Track Name: "Candles"
CANDLES

If first we face forever, on life's eternal stage
The flickers in the fault lines are dawned upon with age
The hand that may be dealt us belies what we deserve
No sterner test of virtue, of courage we reserve

This world pulls the ground from under you
Where no thoughts or words nor songs will do
As we stand tall for those we know and knew
For our tryst with life surrenders all to soon

The paths that you have chosen, the lives you could have lead
An open-ended ending for the paths you sought to tread
From nascency, through nurture, until the final shout
A candle by the year until your candles all go out

This world pulls the ground from under you
Where no thoughts or words nor songs will do
As we stand tall for those we know and knew
For our tryst with life surrenders all to soon

This world steals the ground from under you
Leaves a void where once-dreamt dreams fell through
Still we stand tall for those we know and knew
For our tryst with life surrenders all to soon

Track Name: "These Fireworks"
THESE FIREWORKS

And if I turn to you to soldier on
There's no more I would do to keep you strong
The lights around you shine a thousand skies
Upon my gaze towards your eager eyes
I trust in me you'll feel you can confide
And never wish to bridge a great divide
I fear this world will throw its worst at you
And hope I have the means to see you through

Hush you now
These fireworks won't lay their trail on you
Don't stir now
This world awaits, not ones we wished we knew

And if I hold you close into the night
I'd suffer anything to see you right
You'll want for nothing less than you deserve
Let nobody betray your guile and verve
I'll treasure you and arm you to survive
Upon this rock you build yourself for life
This mortal line you tread corrodes my soul
Don't ever let them take you from our home

Hush you now
These fireworks won't lay their trail on you
Don't stir now
This world awaits, not ones we wished we knew

Track Name: "Le Creuset"
LE CREUSET

I keep my eyes trained down
Or spark a riot of incredulous outrage at the slightest incongruence
Too quick to chase the crowd
Yes you're a model of affected behaviour and intransigent values
Such a sure fire sign to stomp on your circumstance

Don't need false pleasantries, don't want your sanctimony
Won't shirk controversy
Shout me down, force unity
Don't need your heads in the sand, don't want your Guardian bands
Such a staged cabaret
I don't want your Le Creuset

Facile under façade
A world so anodyne I can't relate or fan the flames of inconsequence
And yet beneath your guard
You get your kicks off softcore subscriber stations then preach about corruption
Such a dirty mind laced with saccharine purity

Don't need false pleasantries, don't want your sanctimony
Won't shirk controversy
Shout me down, force unity
Don't need your heads in the sand, don't want your Guardian bands
Such a staged cabaret
I don't want your Le Creuset

Just stand for something worth seeing
Just stand for something worth saying
Cast against you in social asymmetry

Track Name: "Der Fall Deruga"
DER FALL DERUGA

Call it with faultless sobriety
One for the Hemlock Society
Cling to the threads of lucidity
Asystolic serenity

Nitschke, Minelli, Gunning, Joey Ratzinger
Nothing divides us quite like euthanasia
Counting the hours away until you're stuck inside yourself
Too late, turn to escape
Is it a right to life, or right to leave?

Swallow your force-fed morality
Is this the price of our dignity?
All of this false hospitality
Suffer a silent insanity

Nitschke, Minelli, Gunning, Joey Ratzinger
Nothing divides us quite like euthanasia
Counting the hours away until you're stuck inside yourself
Too late, turn to escape
Is it a right to life, or right to leave?

Track Name: "Agincourt"
AGINCOURT

On Haverstock the world stands still
From court to spark, and now this is for real
The certainty sets in
A cut above all else in sight
With looks to thrill, this dull surround is set alight
Intentions bare to see

Free from the ties that bind you
I see all that's good in your eyes, in your heart
And I can hardly fail to realise
You're the one I need to not do without
So little time on Saturday
When the world turns round in the morning I'll still be me
But will you still feel just like we did in Agincourt?

Entwined by Marber closer still
To every man with all due cause to feel
These sentient desires
Our London days and London nights
Take centre stage, no more allied by satellites
Or words crossed down a wire

Free from the ties that bind you
I see all that's good in your eyes, in your heart
And I can hardly fail to realise
You're the one I need to not do without
So little time on Saturday
When the world turns round in the morning I'll still be me
But will you still feel just like we did in Agincourt?

I know I'd turn back the hands of time to Agincourt

*
Track Name: "You"
YOU

Ne'er a turn of the tide forced the spring from your stride
Undeterred by the failings of us
Born of the best of intentions, withered and waned
Till the bonds that remain turn to dust

Now you saw us divide and your world did survive
And for that I admire you the most
Shouldering burdens unknown, with thoughts sure to roam
Boundless ardour that keeps me afloat

All the wherefores and whys play a dance through your eyes
Courting answers untold and unformed
Braced for the clouds to descend, we count one to ten
You're the calm that survived through the storm

For we turn desolation to raw inspiration
Where I end you truly begin
Fuelled by a pureness of heart, such a fearless façade
Shields the intimate wonder within

And you... are the heart that beats the soul
The warmth after the cold
The one thing I hold

Though your words bear confusion, no shattered illusions
No breach in the walls that surround
Were they to crumble before you, trust I'd restore
Unto you all diversions are bound

But you... are the heart that beats the soul
The warmth after the cold
The one thing I hold

*
Track Name: "Defined Lines"
DEFINED LINES

Where's the white cloud, pull it out the bag
Gonna take you to a higher ground
Here a line, there a climb
Every one a swift ascent to your surround

Feel it up top, never let it stop
Don't fear, you won't fail tonight
And do no wrong
Now you can do no wrong

Raise the bar now, take it all too far
No more shackled to this sphere we're on
Once you feel it, take another hit
And let this wonder right your wrongs

Feel it up top, never let it stop
Don't fear, you won't fail tonight
And do no wrong
Now you can do no wrong

Where's the night gone, pull it all down
Now the fall to endure alone
Once a pure faced boy
None the wiser of the wilderness we roam

Feel it up top, know that it'll stop
Don't fear, you won't fail tonight
And do no wrong
Now you can do no wrong
