Track Name: Hadn't Thought Of You That Often
I hadn't thought of you that often
I hadn't thought of what I'd say
I hadn't thought of you that often

It's been a little while I know
I guess five years don't go so slow
& I'll admit I've handled it badly
I was young & had to grow

I hadn't thought of you that often
I hadn't thought of what I'd say
I hadn't thought of you that often
It's a different time & I'm in…
A different place

It's not that I don't care for you no more
In fact I give you all my wish
It's not that I don't care for you no more
I just don't care who you've been replacing me with

I hadn't thought of you that often
I hadn't thought of what I'd say
I hadn't thought of you that often
It's a different time & I'm in…
A different place
Track Name: It's A Metaphor
Come november I'll be bruised
& false blames not a calling cue
Down your hallway, too disguised
Wave Goodbye

A chest of all your kind intentions
Sliding down the wooden boards
empty quilts when I've awoken
Shattered glass is a metaphor, its a metaphor

You say you want your freedom, but you still want your control
Just say you want your freedom
& I will fight for that

March I'll be escaping grey
& puzzles missing pieces gone astray
Like a dollar to a gamblin' boy
Shattered glass is a metaphor, its a metaphor

You say you want your freedom, but you still want your control
Just say you want your freedom
& I will fight for that
Track Name: Set Sail
There's more to life than stockpiling
boats to float and rocks to flaunt
There's more to life than golden dreams
all thats glitters ain't always gold

Second guess or we lose
man I meant no troubled news
Jump the wharf into the breeze
& take a dive into the make believe

Lets set sail
I'm not that boy who fails
I don't believe
you don't believe in fairytales

Jokes aside, I'm yet to realise
all the noise you make, is too disguise
Your confused
Im confused too
if you wonder if you have me, you do

Let's set sail
I'm not that boy who fails
I don't believe
you don't believe in

Fairy tales can make you question
is fear truly all so hard
just remember
every ending
does always have a start

Lets set sail
I'm not that boy who fails
I don't believe
you don't believe in fairytales
Track Name: Falling Feathers
Upon the fallen leaves a bird dropped down
Said Ive got no more to live for now
A little bird fallen a little bird lies
A little bird dies

And you know those stories they sing will break your heart
Say you want a song that'll make you laugh
Well here's a song that will make you cry
A little bird dies

You say you think Im losing my mind
Well I lost that long ago
& every time you tell a lie
A little bird dies
A little bird dies

There won't be no shameful back foot crawl
You could have come clean before the call
You can't be losing faith from fright
A little bird died

Revenge might be your mighty word
Lessons told ain't lessons learned
Teaching children how to fight
Did a little bird die?

You say Im losing my mind
Well I lost that long ago
You say Im losing my mind
& little bird dies
Track Name: Pretty Little Stone
Your a pretty little stone
and I will never know all you will ever know

On mothers finger you glow
and you don't even know what it means to watch you grow

Theres only thoughts to describe
and its not even like
anyone else should ever know

I used to read to know more words
but some words don't exist
& after all you've learned i hope you know

If I saw you fall
we'd fall together

Your never all alone
although, you get upset from time to time

We've both out grown the chauffeur
and I feel I'm getting closer to you, now your gone

Would I have to write a letter to say that...

If I saw you fall
we'd fall together
Track Name: The Boy From Kirkby
He said Im only 10 years old
I did never mean to hurt no one
and the lawyers whispered in his ear
be careful what you say you've done

and the mother whispered in his ear
If my boy had made it even to three
he'd be twice what you are worth
as her tears sooner swallowed her words

But Ill take you back
to that haunted railway track
to waltz with his ghost, down in Walton
So you feel her pain
for her sons tortured name
and the murder won't be forgotten

The judges words were weakly written
two 10 year old boys to be left not living
dead in the clasp of custodies hands
till they were deemed to be of man
a punishment pointlessly given

But Ill take you back
to that haunted railway track
to waltz with his ghost, down in walton
So you feel her pain
for her sons tortured name
and the murder won't be forgotten
Track Name: Eighteen Dreams (Bloody Wire)
I've been inviting all my friends
to meet these voices in my head
its funny looking back
all the things they would have said
they'd send me straight to bed
but I was eighteen then

One year from now where would I be
would you have grown new skin and I still be me
would you walk the cobblestone faster than fire
turn your eyes blind if we burnt those thieving liars
'cause the smoke could burn much brighter

As the wind hurls the rooftops over the trees
you sit there smirking watching them scream
but how you lie there laughing while others do bleed
I'd introduce you politely
but their all to blind to see

I've been inviting all my friends
to meet these voices in my head
its funny looking back
all the things they would have said
they'd send me straight to bed
but I was eighteen then

But the eagle do feast & the eagle do fly
not caught in that coop of bloody wire

I've been inviting all my friends
to meet these voices in my head
its funny looking back
on the things they would have said
they'd send me straight to bed
but I was eighteen then
Track Name: Orchard Plains
There were yellow sands and silver shells
woven silk & rusted bells
orchards spread over the plains
and even though I knew her name

I found myself in a wild garden
ivy tied to hold me calmer
genie eyes green like stems
and flesh carved like rich rare stone gems

She falsely cared, Not that I knew
the garden grows as truth to do bloom
a breath of spring a voice like autumn
silence now the insects calling…

One step away but I stepped the wrong way
One step away but I stepped the wrong way

Corrupt my hands, my feet, my lips
bury by bones in Indian pits
I'd followed the stones i thought you'd leave
your heels exhaust was all I breathed

How I let you run barefoot from me
If i'd seen the prints before the breeze
had swept them from my closing eye
I'd gaze at you & not the sky…

One step away but I stepped the wrong way
One step away but I stepped the wrong way
Track Name: Leave A Letter
When I die
I hope you won't be
mourning & speaking through tears of my name
I hope & trust that you'll remember
all we had
down memory lane

When I die
I start to wonder
will I be wise and unfazed by fear
If so, ill go
with grace to the ground
and no
there will be no tears

When I die
Go leave a letter in my grave
that tells me all you never told me
& ill write back one day

When I die
Please go collecting
all the lies that I have told
& tie to them to stones that are sinking
too waters dark & cold

When I die
Don't you remember
all the lines I've crossed inside your mind
& don't forgot the silence
that followed every time

When I die
Go leave a letter in my grave
that tells me all you never told me
& ill write back one day

When I die
Don't show my children
The grave they dug to keep me all alone
& tell them not to stand above me
cause Im not there
forever I am at home.

When I die
Go leave a letter in my grave
that tells me all you never told me
& ill write back one day
