Track Name: Hand Me Downs
I sat down with a clock with no hands
everything dried up from pools into sands
as the rays shimmer down you forget your own thirst
wrapped up inside you and ready to burst

Got us all lined up, perpetual chain
they peer through the window of the carriage of their train
sending hand me downs, already too small
for each piece of paper we scramble and maul

Oh my little darling you'll be fine
cross my arms to my chest, no holy wine
we'll wade out to sea, you and me
there's no storm - I tell you home is debris
Track Name: Edge of Indigo
Cut loose, forget the feeling of being shrouded by
acid lights, ever-reeling, choking the sky
Early starts and coffee in cars
watching the days fleet by, you're regressing
still sewn in the haze

Won't spend my days in a fitting room
where lights are harsh and stare and loom
and coax my body from its gloom and carry on and on

I'll grit my teeth and serve until the day comes where the air stands still
The trees are tired but they're our frame
another day, another dawn without a name

Tail of callow pessimism, edge of indigo
will turn to jaded cynicism, slumped at your window
