Track Name: i appear missing
i appear missing in the place i was seen in town - the years have passed so slowly would you recognise me now - out of sight - out of mind - dust covers everything in time - the shadow you cast seems darker as the rain comes down - the rain comes down in heavy sheets - animals glow and i swim in their light - the promise of stone crumbles into the night - raw and exposed when i'm out of control - taking back all the pieces you stole - and when the sun came out there was nowhere left to hide - in pitch dark - the silence in the trees - the wind whispers all it's secrets to me - the rain falls down in heavy sheets - but not a single drop hits me
Track Name: with two halves of a dead worm
haven’t left the house in days - there are no mysteries left - time puts hubris into a cage - afraid of the spider but not the web - he’s the kid who used to cut up worms - with a smashed bit of glass - on a tree trunk he’d watch them squirm - you only get lost once then you know your way back - couldn’t give an answer as their eyes scan your face - tree roots crack the pavement as the scenery melts away - it’s one of them things you’re told when you’re a kid - but what are you left with?
Track Name: sick of free speech
lee 42 divorced loves a pint just tells it how it is - not racist - ask yourself what is the opposite?
Track Name: this story is for me
start a story form the beginning there's always bits and pieces missing - try to explain your passions to someone else - why do you get up each day and disappoint yourself? days feel longer as i get older - i’m sat at the bar retelling stories - make a tower of pebbles that get knocked down in the night - wake up tomorrow and give it another try - old dreams of ambitions long forgotten - paint flakes from the house that you grew up in - but you can’t take revenge on yourself or blame others for the taste that’s in your mouth
Track Name: the end of the journey
keep up my love we can’t afford to slow down - the snow is melting and it’s dragging us down - can i just stop to take a breath - i’ve been on my feet forever - it’s time to have a rest - so we sat and watched the leaves blow into the water’s trickling flow - please don’t follow me as we’re falling asleep - where we walked in the snow - our footprints disappear - they’ll need reminding that we’re still here
