Track Name: Forever
She's a part to play, a knife game dame,
One in a million dice,
Confetti swirls and champagne girls.
Employed to throw the rice,
The wedding march, the entry arch, the vows impart,
Commitment's name will serve to tame that spirit flame that piece of art.

Forever's the shortest word to break its promises to us,
A pinch of salt taken every time the phrase I love you and a phrase combine.

The rain that falls upon us all is what you make of it,
When puddle drain and streets lie plain will you regret the things you say?
In pillow talk are cheese and chalk so far removed or close at all?
When things are clear do you still hear that divine voice the call to prayer?

Forever's the shortest word to break its promises to us,
A pinch of salt taken every time the phrase I love you and a phrase combine.

Cycles repeat to stamping feet, crowds that cannot be controlled,
For every wound, within its womb gestates another windfall swoon,
Romance dictates in heartbreak's place, another face must draw an ace,
We gave this rule a pedestal now it's our creed now it's our all.

Forever's the shortest word to break its promises to us,
A pinch of salt taken every time the phrase I love you and a phrase combine.

She's a part to play, a knife game dame,
One in a million dice,
Confetti swirls and champagne girls.
Employed to throw the rice,
The wedding march, the entry arch, the vows impart,
Commitment's name will serve to tame that spirit flame that piece of art.
Track Name: Blue and Black
I spoke before I thought,
Red handed I was caught,
Heart pulsing on my sleeve,
Hoping that you'd believe,
Acted before I knew,
What the hell I should do,
Heart pulsing on my sleeve,
Hoping that you'd believe me.

Oh darling, darling please don't turn your back,
I'm all shades of blue and black,
I've been knocked out of whack.

I spoke before I thought,
Red handed I was caught,
Heart pulsing on my sleeve,
Hoping that you'd believe,
Acted before I knew,
What the hell I should do,
Heart pulsing on my sleeve,
Hoping that you'd believe me.

I'm twisted and I'm turning up into,
All different kinds of cruel,
Missing what I thought I knew.

I spoke before I thought,
Red handed I was caught,
Heart pulsing on my sleeve,
Hoping that you'd believe,
Acted before I knew,
What the hell I should do,
Heart pulsing on my sleeve,
Hoping that you'd believe me.

Oh darling, darling please don't turn your back,
I'm all shades of blue and black,
I've been knocked out of whack.
Track Name: Seagulls of Scunthorpe
If you have to decide then I've already won,
You can't fight a feeling and you can't lose a thought,
Gooodbyes have been said but nobody forgets,
You're a name on my lips, you're alive in my head.

If all is lost won't you tell me so?
I don't want to be the last to know,
One hand in another, one around a fencepost,
The ground's giving in,
Please don't let me go.

Don't think, don't choose, don't stand in my shoes,
Do what comes by nature do what comes to you,
I'm not going to beg you, I'm not going to try,
You don't need a reason so don't tell me why.

If all is lost won't you tell me so?
I don't want to be the last to know,
One hand in another, one around a fencepost,
The ground's giving in,
Please don't let me go.

A string of bad choices, a trail of regrets,
Two counts on the wrap-sheet, six months on the bench,
No matter the distance we'll always be close,
Oh my partner in crime, I love you the most.

If all is lost won't you tell me so?
I don't want to be the last to know,
One hand in another, one around a fencepost,
The ground's giving in,
Please don't let me go.
Track Name: Horsin' Around
Anguished faces in the windows,
Painful truths in every wall,
Serpents writhing on the glasswork,
There's a wolf pack at your door,
These have all become reminders that you are truly alone,
Trapped here shivering in a snake pit with your own face looking on.

You are trapped here on an island,
In a fish tank in a zoo,
There are crowds sat in the bleachers,
Everyone is watching you,
You are starving, you are naked, you are watching what you do,
You don't recognise the faces but all of them know you.

You know you'd love to get out,
You know you'd love to move,
But you've got no one to go with,
Every chance you take you lose,
You're just hopping between islands, change the scenery at best,
You are trapped in your own body, you are different from the rest
