Track Name: Walking with Thieves
You have a heart like the aching sky
For every bruise, there's an alibi
You're angry that we walk with thieves
that blood is spilt and no-one grieves

I'll cut the rope and I won't look back
Pull my bones from this lonely track
but at the end, is your soul still blue and black?

You're on a mission to lose your nose
with words you plant a seed that grows
well after all, the wind still blows
so I'll pull the thorns right off this rose
Track Name: Washing Line
I was half-way home on a crazy train
Packed your bags and upped your game
I shed my skin on your knife
Wide-eyed, seduced by life

I hung my heart on a washing line
to be whittled by wind, subdued by time
I've been wading in a river since May
and the tide's too strong
Track Name: Ship in a Bottle
Bound by chains with placard names
Headless suits, loose in a maze
Oh, something tear our eyes away
from this monotony, we sway
A record, stuck
Static buzz
and seeds are sprouting on the cusp
but we're a race subdued by lust
facile games, we place our trust

Let us out
unplug the coils from our lungs
Drain us out, til the ocean's newly-found
Take you down
Fall as ashes to the ground

The city beckons, lights that wink
Tower falters on the brink
We were born in line to sink
Ship in a bottle, asked to drink
A record, stuck
Static buzz
and seeds are sprouting on the cusp
but we're a race subdued by lust
facile games, we place our trust

Let us out
unplug the coils from our lungs
Drain us out, til the ocean's newly-found
Take you down
Fall as ashes to the ground
Track Name: The Sculptor and the Clay
Caught on the cusp and dragged in
Eyes a cage, fought to sing
Now the sun, it slides away
Can't keep the dogs at bay

Give you hands that wander, eyes that ache
said the Sculptor to the Clay
Blues came knocking, swept away
Now edges start to fray

Sculptor crumbled, so did clay
Faces sunken, eyes grew grey
Shown a clay heart how to beat
then turned away with weary feet
Track Name: Nematode
Go ahead, hitch a ride for the sake of it
Second-guessing your emotion; what to make of it
Did it eat you up, couldn't you shake it?
Please stop, don't run, we'll make it

It's a lesson to be learned, a fragile snake bite
Hours crying out and clawing at the moonlight
and you breathe deep, tell yourself to sit tight
Chain your bed to wasted dreams for just another night

I'll tell you, he's the son of an earthquake
and I'm the daughter of the sea that trembles under its shake
Immersed in water til my mind aches
The weeping willow bends and breaks

It's a lesson to be learned, a fragile snake bite
Hours crying out and clawing at the moonlight
and you breathe deep, tell yourself to sit tight
Chain your bed to wasted dreams for just another night
