Track Name: 1. I Stay Clear
I Stay Clear

I stay clear of demons in the mind
I stay dear to the lemons in your heart
All that gold that is waiting in the mines
I guess we’ll try
Some other time

I stay clear of questions unanswered
I stay dear to answers unremembered
Close to Newport, far from the Nile
I guess we can
Try some other time

In the plot when did you decide
To move away?
When I longed to tell you this
All your love that you decided to waste away
When I longed to tell you this

I stay clear of players in the game
I stay dear to doing all the same
Only marbled by columns of time
Only marbled by columns of time
Only marbled by columns of time
Track Name: 2. Raes
Raes

When all the ballons on your grave
Have gone flat and empty
When all the flowers on your stone
Are gone dead and sorry

Say, what time does the rain dry
When rays don’t come out of the sunshine?

When all the strings on your shoes
Have gone all thin and dirty
When all the skin on your bones
Has gone dry and flappy

Say, what time does the rain dry
When rays don’t come out of the sunshine?

When all the children that you raised
Have gone old and tipsy
When all the boys that you’ve known
Forgot about you baby

Now there’s a place where face to face
You reap all that you saw
In the maze of man and grace
You have to leave all that you grow

Say, what time does the rain dry
When rays don’t come out of the sunshine?
Track Name: 3. In The Midnight Sun
In The Midnight Sun

Waking up every morning yet I can’t describe
The feeling that is running when the sleeper dies

Understated conversations with the simplest of illusions

You take all the shame, a train of thought
As light as the day shining in the midnight sun

She knew all the crimes of every gun
She knew all the lines of all of your songs

Right at this moment I couldn’t say
If the clouds are disappearing or shining
In the midnight sun
Track Name: 4. Deepest Waters
Deepest Waters

Can’t believe it was a cheap ride
Or is it just a masquerade
Talking deep into the sunrise
Far away from barricades
Coming around and coming about
Looking around all safe and sound

Sailing in deepest waters
A zebra with no stripes, a ship with no mast
I couldn’t look at it any other way

Suzy says that I’m hungry
For more love that I can show
Sister say are you sorry
For all the things that you adore
Coming around and coming about
Looking around all safe and sound

Sailing in deepest waters
A zebra with no stripes, a ship with no mast
I couldn’t look at it any other way
Track Name: 5. Feline Eye
Feline Eye

Feline eye, holy ghost
Mystic child, take it slow

Lack of time, lack of stores
Lack of mind, a lack of soul

My time of dying came a week early
I could not resist the pain and the glory
Hey sister, are you ready?

They tell me “you’re the kind of guy who lost all the space, gained all the time”
They curse at your name, spit on your grave
Then tell their friends to do all the same

Questions asked, mellow tone
Plug the jack into your soul
Track Name: 6. As The Suntanned Share A Toast
As The Suntanned Share A Toast

And with the grace of a drape over her shoulder
Falling like water on some unnamed mountain
And with the grace of a bird on a branch
While all hell breaks over the bench

And with the honours given to weary students
Who flattened their backs for some knowledge and orders
And with the patterns of the waves over the sea
Moving in rhythm, moving in melodies

And with the patience of a long-time guard
Who watched the door for years but without a doubt
One day you’ll show up, walking the endless aisles
Enter the room where the lightbulbs have all died

I could watch you talk but couldn’t hear your voice
Now there’s no option but not to have a choice
And with the grace of the tired whale
That reaches the surface for a last inhale

And with the experience of a turtle on a coast
Waiting to die as the suntanned share a toast
As the suntanned share a toast
Track Name: 8. Improbable Lover
Improbable Lover

Of all the ex-lovers
You’ve got to take the cup
I tried every means to make you smile or blush
No reason to be angry
Or shout at the sun

Improbable lover, can you read a palm?
Is there anything good coming undone?
How sad can it be, you’re still on the run
But I’m still a stranger
To your believers

Why cry baby?
Why cry baby?

Of all the ex-lovers
You’ve got to take the cup
I tried every means to make you smile or blush
No reason to be angry
Or shout at the sun

But I’m still a stranger
To your believers

I’m still a stranger to your believers
I’m still a stranger to your believers
Track Name: 9. Tough Times In Real Towns
Tough Times In Real Towns

Quiet! Can the leaves grow?
I said silence! Now baby don’t go
The bass low and the treble high
The bass low and the treble high

It’s tough times in real towns
I might never leave you
For there’s no space in my mind
To ever undo you

The bass low and the treble high
The bass low and the treble high
Track Name: 11. Righteous Endeavours
Righteous Endeavours

I don’t need a woman to be my side
For in a second I will get over
Don’t need two lefts to make a single right
For in a minute I will go in circles

Is it now or is it never
In this righteous endeavour
Perhaps I need a little time to know

I don’t need a woman to be my side
For in a second I will get over her
Don’t need two lefts to make a single right
For in a minute I will go in circles

I don’t need no music to get me around
For in a second it will be over
