Track Name: Leave Your Love Behind
Maybe I was too young to remember
what a storm does to a fire
have you heard your mother curse
have you heard your daddy cry
tears as he tries to justify
she takes the keys and goes for a drive

Leave Your Love
Leave Your Love Behind
Leave Your Love
Leave Your Love Behind

Never had a whole lotta money
had a driveway of cars far too old
brothers & mothers, fathers and sisters
they can all make you feel so small
but it's better than feeling alone

If you're down, need a little time or unsatisfied
it's not easy to see the falling apart of someone you care for

Leave Your Love
Leave Your Love Behind
Leave Your Love
Leave Your Love Behind

If you're scared, need a little time or unsatisfied
it's not easy to see the falling apart of someone you care for

Leave Your Love
Leave Your Love Behind
Leave Your Love
Leave Your Love Behind
Track Name: Gotta Get Outta This Place
Why don't you prove them wrong, I'm saying now
what I said back then, this whole town
always held you down

You can do better
you just have to start
It's easier to be yourself and leave
than to play the part

I gotta get outta this place
I gotta leave town
Same old fools
on that same old merry go 'round
Small bars and rusted cars
Demolitions and reconstruction
New hope and one more joke about living here
Everything come and everything goes
but it's always the same
I'm not saying I don't like it that way
I'm just saying every now and then
I gotta get outta this place

I hope you prove them wrong
someday they'll know
I won't say how
I told you so
while tall poppies grow

You can do better
you just have to start
it's easier to be yourself and leave
than to play the part

I gotta get outta this place
I gotta leave town
Same old fools
on that same old merry go 'round
Small bars and rusted cars
Demolitions and reconstruction
New hope and one more joke about living here
Everything come and everything goes
but it's always the same
I'm not saying I don't like it that way
I'm just saying every now and then
I gotta get outta this place
I gotta get out
I gotta get out
I gotta get out
Track Name: Only an Illusion
These streets take me
to my darkest hours
Every bus stops seems
like where we used to fool around
hiding from the rain
warm October rain
below the scaffold towers
I remember everything, I remember everything

Sour were the stains on the taxi seat,
scouring at the hotel built on top of where we used to drink
Times the sweetest cure but it don't feel that long ago
that we were underneath
loaded linen sheets
now you're calling someone else's name
While I remember everything, I remember everything

All our love, it's only an illusion
All our love, it's only an illusion

Pawned all your possessions
the masters way to part
I kept a few reminders
but the pain is in the past
I sunk in my seat
kissing both your feet
learning how to think
learning how to drink
Still be playing dumb
still be getting drunk
Can you remember much?
I remember everything, I remember everything

All our love, it's only an illusion
All our love, it's only an illusion

I saw the future from your falcon
and it turned the engine quiet
surreal became secure
as the windscreen turned to white

The clouds were creeping in
as we reached the highest peak
pointing out the cargo ships
like pirates on the seas

trembling were your thighs
as we tried to be quiet
grass painted pretty little patterns
all up and down your back
I remember that
I remember everything, I remember everything

All our love, it's only an illusion
All our love, it's only an illusion
Track Name: Head Above the Water
Crawling over white lines
pawning what I need
placing all my bets
while I'm on a losing streak

Put it all upon pursuits
that can satisfy the whole
knowing now, how success
don't lead to happiness

I'll do what I can do
I'll do what I have to, I will try
to keep my head above the water
to keep my feet upon the ground
I'll do what I have to, I'll do what I can
to keep me from sinking to the sand
to keep my head above the water

Would you play the good bars
for whatever's in the hat?
money comes and leaves on the breeze
but we've no need to talk about the weather

I'll slow dance on fast road
count my losses on a dream
watch the stars bright, they turn to white
while I'm turning green

I'll do what I can do
I'll do what I have to, I will try
to keep my head above the water
to keep my feet upon the ground
I'll do what I have to, I'll do what I can
to keep me from sinking, to the sand
to keep my head above the water

Try to change a bad world
with a line lost in a song
you'll loose a dozen lovers
it ain't hard to lose a lover

Would you get yourself a desk job?
Could you pay yourself a wage?
everybody's got a dream or two
nobody dreams to fade

I'll do what I can do
Yeah, I'll do what I have to, I will try
to keep my head above the water
to keep my feet upon the ground
Yeah, I'll do what I have to, I'll do what I can
to keep me from sinking to the sand
to keep my head above the water
Track Name: Don't You Wonder Why
Don't you wonder why there are people on the streets
waiting for a meal, searching for some place to sleep
some are young, some are getting old
few have hope but they need something real to hold
some know better, some don't know
others got homes but they're safer sleeping in the cold
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why

Don't you wonder everybody's in need
you look upon the others as you look down upon your feet
You say your running low while you buy Mercedes Benz
Call it half a dollar; someone calls it fifty cents
You're a catalyst and a criminal but they don't treat you any less
as you shout towards the alter and demand your forgiveness
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why

When something catches your ever knowing eyes
bet you wonder why
it took you such a long time
You can't just sit there curtains drawn
wishing that you could see more
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why


Don't you wonder why there is murder on T.V
youth robbing stores, lovers who beat
Everybody's at war against someone with more
the rich fight the rich, the poor feed the poor
too afraid to look upon a helpless scream
While children shoot all there friends
on a television screen
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why

So while you sit there counting all the chips stacked in front of you
and redefine your existence with your every slippery move
You've tried to be sincere but sarcasms dripping from your tongue
You're forsaken, you leave every conversation
like you've won
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why

When something catches your ever knowing eyes
bet you wonder why it took you such a long time
You can't just sit there curtains drawn
wishing that you could see more
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Don't you wonder why
Track Name: Roll On
From the infinite ache
which confronts us at loves wake
where absence grows within the eyes but for now
everything is sacred right here in the twilight

Burgundy hands just a memory
the future issuch a foreign land
will blue rivers still carry life
while the skin forever grows tired

Roll on; in the precious hours where love is being born
Roll on
Roll on; you need forget the fear of being worn
Roll on, Roll on

Beauty seasons break
snow only buries thorns
and litter loneliness upon sidewalks
where the hurt are being born

One can feel infinity
and isolation within one city
sadness keeps on seeping out from shadows next to where nothing stands
With no idea what we're on about, we can't hold ice with burning hands

Roll on; in the precious hours where love is being born
Roll on
Roll on; while you forget the fear of being worn
Roll on, Roll on

Roll On
Roll On
Roll On
Roll On

Roll on; in the precious hours where love is being born
Roll on
Roll on; while you forget the fear of being worn
Roll on, Roll on
Track Name: Caught Out in the Rain
Won't you call to say you care
announce you need me
reveal new lovers aren’t the same
Mouth you miss me
Confess you’ve been foolish
Say there’ll be another way
Suggest you’re a stranger
Tell me you trust me
I won’t care what anybody else says

Maybe this will mean my futures filled with pain
Maybe I could never love again
Oh, it’s just me out on Rundle Street
I’m caught out in the rain
I’m caught out in the rain

Admit that you're changing
Bellow your better
Repeat how this don't feel right
Holler your heartbreaks
Lead on that you lied
Torture me with words tonight
I wont care what anybody else says

Maybe this will mean my futures filled with pain
Maybe I could never love again
Oh, it’s just me out on Rundle Street
I’m caught out in the rain
I’m caught out in the rain

Whisper you’re wasted
shout that you’re sober
Explain how you’ve done me wrong
Express that your hopeful
Voice that there’s happiness
Tell me you’ve found someone

Maybe this will mean my futures filled with pain
Maybe I could never love again
Oh, it’s just me out on Rundle Street
I’m caught out in the rain
I’m caught out in the rain
Oh, it’s just me out on Rundle Street
and I’m caught out in the rain
(I’m caught out in the rain) I’m caught out in the rain
(I’m caught out in the rain) I’m caught out in the rain
(I’m caught out in the rain) I’m caught out in the rain
(I’m caught out in the rain) I’m caught out in the rain
Track Name: Losers on the News
It's torment at it's best
and there ain't no sign of relief
when the right kind of resistance
fuels political disease

Lay your guns down at the table
next to where they write the facts
There's no surprise it's only fiction now
you realise you can't say anything back

'Cause all around is too much repetition
turning circles time and time again
we are bound to turn in new directions
no more kissing of the barrels
no more staring straight ahead
No more useless conversations while everybody's glued
to pointless confrontation where everybody loses
politicians ain't in parliament,
they're just losers on the news
yeah yeah yeah
they're just losers on the news

Count the cameras as a weapon
they don't care who they shoot
trading thoughts for television
take a guess who's gonna be capturing you

'Cause all around is too much repetition
turning circles time and time again
we are bound to turn in new directions
no more kissing of the barrels
no more staring straight ahead
no more useless conversations while everybody's glued
to pointless confrontation where everybody loses
politicians ain't in parliament,
they're just losers on the news
yeah yeah yeah
they're just losers on the news
Track Name: Only a Matter of Time
Remember the scent of roses rested on gravestones
Remember the sound of wisdom as it scorns adolescence
He passed long ago but his words supersede him
that desires and dreams don't create freedom

Oh my,
it's only a matter of time

Remember how it felt to witness those who were weeping
Remember the strength of those who admit their weakness
Hear the roar of a thousand men breaking
Reached for a gun with no ammunition

Oh my,
it's only a matter of time
Oh my,
it's only a matter of time

Believing in magic I could almost believe in religion
Trying to deny logic while the skies disappearing
Through the constant flash of machines getting wiser
and the fear on our faces as we farewell our power

Oh my,
it's only a matter of time
Oh my,
it's only a matter of time
Oh my,
it's only a matter of time
Track Name: Harrow Road
Don't leave your door ajar
danger stands outside
Don't keep your window wide
gloom is creeping past

the kind you wish you could talk to
but there never came a time
the one you heard would kiss and kill
but they told you “you are a different kind”

When you know someone so well
there are words you dare to speak
come and take a walk with me
down on Harrow Street

If walls could talk we'd all be faithful
and we all know
if you're happy you're in denial
everybody breaks a vow, more maybe
every once in a little while

the kind you wish you could talk to
but you aren't the bravest lion
the one you heard would kiss and kill
but they told you “you are a different kind”

When you know someone so well
there are words you dare to speak
come and take a walk with me
down on Harrow Street

When you know someone so well
there are words you dare to speak
come and take a walk with me
down on Harrow Street
Track Name: We'll all grow old Together
We all listened when grandma told stories
We all laughed when grandpa told jokes
We all held on when Lily was diagnosed with cancer
and we never lost hope/let go

We all ignited when mother and father kissed
Under the decorated arch of petunias
We all cried as the balloons scattered to the stars
that shone over Robin’s funeral

We knew we’d all grow old together
We’ll all grow old as one
We’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness
and the golden sparks of the sun

We all cheered when Kate got pregnant
it's true that the youth bring joy
we all mourned at the death of our cousin
was too soon for a high school boy
we were scared when my sister got angry
we all heard the sirens and the slam of the door
we all heard father we he finally cracked
like the crockery flung to the floor
we don’t speak of that no more

'Cause we’ll all grow old together
we’ll all grow old as one
we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness
and the golden sparks of the sun

We all sung on Christmas morning
to the gifts under the malting tree
we all hung on the words of uncle Pete
who told tales to the kids on his knee
we all knew we had something worth living for
and we all had someplace we can
something worth giving is worth giving to someone in need
even if it's just your hand

'Cause we’ll all grow old together
we’ll all grow old as one
we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness
and the golden sparks of the sun

We’ll all grow old together
we’ll all grow old as one
we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness
