Début album

Recorded in an empty room, in a deserted tower,
between the hours of day and night, and night and day,
with no idea of what we were aiming to achieve.

Track Name: Leave
Leave

Seems to me, you’ve got no alibi
Don’t need your stories, so don’t even try
Cause I ain’t buying so don’t waste your time
It’s gone too far, much too far it’s gone this time

Lately things haven’t been the same
I’m breaking up but I don’t feel your pain
If you can’t see me, it’s cause I’ve had to change
And now it’s gone, I don’t want it back again

Why don’t you leave, leave me alone.

You keep on telling me that you could change
Well I’m tired of playing all your little games
D’ya find the answer in that bottle again
Well drink it up, turn around and walk away

Why don’t you leave, leave me alone
Track Name: Let It Out
Let It Out

As seasons go I can’t help feeling bad
But as it goes it’s the best we’ve ever had
If there’s a way that I can see it through
Not run away just like cowards do

Let it out, let it out, let it out
It’s in my head.
It’s in my head
Let it out, let it out, let it out

So if i find myself alone at last
And free to see the big world going past
With all my fears now ok to face
Then fold away burning up to space.
Track Name: Outside Inside
Outside Inside

Outside inside it’s all the same
Your side my side they’re both to blame
Moonlight daytime both in the rain
High tide, low tide nothing has changed

Keep on going out of our way
Always wondering whether to say
It’s all gone, let’s call it a day
But there’s a thread that carries through
That hold me back to be with you

Keep on moving with each day that goes
Time is wandering where nobody knows
Found that place where nothing can grow
But there’s a thread that carries through
That hold me back to be with you
Track Name: Grog Song
Grog Song

Should try and get up outside
To clear up the inside
But feeling kinda nervous
And got no room for others

Walk away the day-mares
Ignoring all the strange stares
I know it’s only so long
Before I get the first one

When I get on the grog and my head turns to fog
As I stand at the bar when I’ve had a 10 jar
Then I sit with a mate in a catatonic state
And feel nothing.

Forgot about the down-time
That’s haunted me since daylight
Now it’s high on moonshine
Not stopping ‘til the first light

“I really feel the pressure” said the old professor man
who tries to find a formula to keep alive a man
With life so hedonistic we need all the help we can
Had my cake and ate it.

Drunk away the nightmares
Laffing at the strange stares
Time is spinning, whizzing on
Don’t want to have my last one
Track Name: Worm
Worm

Had a dream, like nothing before
I could see, touch and hear just like it was real
Took my hand, tried to lead me out through the wall
Felt the pull, I got scared so I had to let go

Why are you waiting
Why are you waiting
What are you waiting for

I was blind like a worm, digging the earth
I can't feel which way's right and the darkness it grows
Sucks me dry, all these highs, get me out of this hole
I can't seem to break free, so I'm spiralling down

Why are you waiting
Why are you waiting
What are you waiting for
Track Name: Natural Girl
Natural Girl

She is a natural girl
Gives me a natural high

A twilight dream I remember
When it came to my head
2010 in November
And the music said

It’s all just an illusion
I try to say to myself
To stop the confusion
‘Cause you’re with someone else

Keep fighting confusion
Keeps me awake at night
I’m not saying I’m losing
I just don’t know what’s right.
Track Name: Let Love In
Let Love In

I’m not sure that I should say I do
Think I might be feeling love for two
I’ve let new love in
Fool I must have been

But there is no way my heart will let go.

I’ve been hoping that my heart will change
But I’m still waiting it won’t go away
I’ve let new love in
Fool I must have been

But there is no way my heart will say no.
Track Name: Armageddon V
Armageddon V

Strange allusion has my head in a spin
Was that you intention again
Armageddon vs End of The World
Which one is going to win

Nothing happened on the way to nowhere
So how did we end up back here
This heavy weather keeps on bringing me down
When is it going to clear

I know that it seems so real
But that’s how it’s meant to feel
I wish that I could reach you
But you’ve got to work it out on your own

Work it out on your own

You can tell it like the way that it is
Perhaps then we’ve got a chance to see
Armageddon vs End of The World
The gloves are off, the whistle’s blown, let’s see.

I know that it seems so real
But that’s how it’s meant to feel
I wish that I could reach you
But you’ve got to work it out on your own
Got to work it out on your own
Got to work it out on your own
Got to work it out on your own
Track Name: Bubblegum
Bubblegum

Imagination got my head in a spin;
Too many thoughts to choose, to choose one to win.
Out of nothing, a light starts to grin
And takes away the surface to reveal what's in.

Imagination got me up and then down,
I'm swinging left then right, in, out and around.
So tell me God: is an answer allowed?
I'd like to scream but I'm alone in the crowd.

Imagination got me all in a twist;
Nothing is clear with the dreams that I wished.
A bang of thunder, like a table and fist
That make me wake up, shake up, coming out of the mist.

Imagination got me all inside out;
I'm saying nothing and I swallow in doubt.
I'd like to scream but I can't let it out,
Drowning in cider with a bubblegum belt.
Track Name: Across The Days
Across The Days

Please don’t keep me from sleep tonight
My mind is aching and I don’t want this fight

What’s left has gone, what’s right
The thought to carry on
Anger to the core for all that’s passed before

So please don’t keep me from sleep tonight

Waiting in the starlight for the morning
Waiting in the starlight for the morning

As the dark infests your soul
It’s free of love and free of hope
Loneliness is like a grave
That’s measured out in ceaseless waves
Across the days

Please don’t keep me from sleep tonight
My mind is aching and I don’t want this fight

Words just words, crawling round in my head
Is it any wonder I undo the things I’ve said

So please don’t keep me from sleep tonight

Waiting in the starlight for the morning
Waiting in the starlight for the morning

As the dark infests your soul
It’s free of love and free of hope
Loneliness is like a grave
That’s measured out in ceaseless waves
Across the days
Across the days
