Track Name: Recline With Me
Oh now won't you recline with me some time
You can see how the royalty are falling behind

And only the wild ones need apply
There's an opening here if you want to get down til you die

And if the moon is dismembering the sky
Or the sun is revealing what the night left behind

When you decide that it's my time
You can book out my bedroom for the rest of your life
Track Name: Extraordinary Blue
Baby baby do you wanna get down with me
And feel the earth move beneath your dirty feet
Lady lady did you ever feel more replete
Than when i filled your mind with the filthiest of speech

I want what everyone wants

Honey honey do you like it when i touch you there
Where your halo meets the colour of your hair
Woman woman do you want to try something new
Where we invent a new shade of extraordinary blue

I want what everyone wants

When i was a boy
I longed to carve my name into something so divine
Your fahrenheit
A way to launch my head into the twilight
With arms wide
I'll float forever wondering how you could be mine
A fault line
And now you lay beside me i can not describe

Lovers licking faces in a feeding frenzy - a silver screen fantasy is never the enemy, When a bodyslam a day is what the doctor ordered, just a criminal conversation with predatory eyes, a tongue worming its wicked way round a maze of unknowns with a hellish howl that's rattling the core of your bones, oh lord i'm telling you that violence is never the way, and it's all the rage, it's all the rage, it's all the rage, it's all the rage
Track Name: Contenders: Ready
You'll always see me with my flag unfurled
Cos I'm a mercenary from another world
I've got a clipboard here with thermal sights
And I sleep with my eyes open wide all night

Looking for a home? Then come and talk to me
Sparkling teeth and sparkling eyes
I'm on your side, that's guaranteed
Tell me now my friend, just what can you afford
If you sell your organs, skin and bones
You could set your sights on so much more

I've got some flash new wheels and a head for heights
And the thought of sleeping keeps me up all night
If you see me in my cheap black suit
You'll know the clock is ticking and it ticks for you

Looking for a home? Then come and talk to me
Sparkling teeth and sparkling eyes
I'm on your side, that's guaranteed
Tell me now my friend, just what can you afford
If you sell your organs, skin and bones
You could set your sights on so much more
Track Name: Foregone Conclusion
I'm a tired old man of war
And i forgot what i'm fighting for

But i wave my arms in rage
And destroy what comes my way

But as i raise my bloodshot eyes
To the torn and stormy sky

It's a foregone conclusion
That they'll forget me when i'm gone

Decimate to accumulate
Accumulate and disintegrate

As i rest my scarred old head
On the ground that forms my bed

And the other troops storm by
With their banner held up high

Not a single one can see
What has now become clear to me:

That a belief embracing war
Is no belief worth fighting for

Decimate to accumulate
Accumulate and disintegrate

It's only ever on the outside that they are not like you
Track Name: Please Report Anything Auspicious To A Member Of Staff
Will you ever put your name to something new
Or simply sail the circus you were born into
Cos I have been wrong and I have been right
But I have seen all the ways that you lie
And would I be sad if you were to die?
Well it's not the first emotion that springs to mind

All around the siren sound is summoning us to see
The sentimental shipwreck of the land we used to be
So put your hand in my hand and I'll twist it behind your back
And walk you to the border post and we can see how you feel about that

Don't look now, he's spouting deathbed politics
A hissing ninny trying to save his dignity
You are a dog
You are a rat
It's not fair on beasts to compare like that
Your job is to say what's troubling your mind
All that we hear is somebody else's lines

All around the siren sound is summoning us to see
The sentimental shipwreck of the land we used to be
So put your hand in my hand and I'll twist it behind your back
And walk you to the border post and we can see how you feel about that

Please report anything auspicious to a member of staff
Track Name: Were You Cold
When i met you at the front door you were smiling, you were laughing.
With the lights on you were something, when they died down you were nothing
Were you cold
As the talk swung off the hinges you were speaking in a language that you picked up from a cartoon where the hero was a cretin.
Were you cold
It's an age thing, this dissembling, this pretending that you're stupid
In the real world, when you're writing, you're a poet, you're a cupid
When you're cold
Is it truly so debasing to embrace who you really are now
When you're back home with the lights low do you ever sink so far down
Were you cold
There's a fine line with my patience and you're walking like a dead man
I should take you to the basement and reveal the secret when the door slams
Were you cold
When I left you you were bleeding, you were shaking, you were crying
As the door swung off the hinges you were thinking you were dying
Track Name: Bring Cold Home
I was already up and already dressed
With a gun in my hand and a little distressed
That time of the morning's better left to the wolves
Slinking back to the den with a bellyful

Cos i cant see you any more after today
Been forced to play my hand this time
And after it i'll be blown away

A whisky and water to steady the nerves
A kiss while you slept that i didnt deserve
A last look around and a note on the door
Saying 'don't try to find me i am no more'

Cos i cant see you any more after today
A man that i know has got to go
And when he's gone i'll be blown away

There's cold in the dark and cold in my bones
There's cold in my eyes and my heart
and i bring cold home

I've killed men before but only in the dark
With a list of good reasons and a chequebook spark
And never in the knowledge that each shot true
Was a knife in the back of my life with you

Cos i cant see you any more after today
Been forced to pay my hand this time
And after it i'll be blown away

Cos i cant see you any more after today
A man that i know has got to go
And when he's gone i'll be blown away

There's cold in the dark and cold in my bones
There's cold in my eyes and my heart
and i bring cold home
Track Name: Never Left The Ground
A friend told me he wanted to get high
And i could see no reason not to try
We smoked the world and drank the raging seas
And every whisp and drop washed over me

I want to walk beside you today
You are my friend tonight and always

A friend told me he longed to float back home
And i could see no reason not to go
We packed our bags and picked up our guitars
And slunk like foxes past the darkened bars

I want to walk beside you today
You are my friend tonight and always
And i want you to know
That you're on my mind
I'll never stand down
I'm by your side

I can try and i can fly
And i can crash back down
But just this time you're on my mind
And i never left the ground

Just one hour, a spiral tower
Of bleak and wasted time
And at the peak a molten heap
Of everything that's mine

I want to walk beside you today
You are my friend tonight and always
And i want you to know
That you're on my mind
I'll never stand down
I'm by your side
Track Name: Underground
I got the tube into the office today
I usually take the bus or walk all the way
But i'm going underground

I'd hoped to God that it was dark as the night
That i could creep around, be hidden from sight
A lost soul underground

Oh won't you ride with me
My four letter friend come on
Oh shine a light on me
My four letter friend come on


The night's eternal and the days are a dream
Your pallid countenance is barely ever seen
A sad soul underground

A clipper, jerry can, some kindling and wine
Is all we need to make this shitty world fine
A bonfire underground

Oh won't you ride with me
My four letter friend come on
Oh shine a light on me
My four letter friend come on
Track Name: All Fall Down
I feel better when i'm awake but i am lost without you
I feel better when i'm awake and i feel down

There's a feeling when i'm asleep that i am nought without you
There's a feeling when i'm asleep that's too far down.

We all fall down

It's a slow fall
But we all fall down

And when i clamour it's all for love and not for lust or fancy
And when i clamour it's all for love but all falls down
But when i'm sleeping i stay as silent as a stone, i'm empty
And when i'm sleeping i hold my tongue and all falls down

We all fall down
All fall down

It's a slow fall
But we all fall down
