Track Name: Burning Wicks
Burning Wicks
Lyrics by Simon Gledhill

Had a bath
Couldn't get out
Milky ripples pulsed like radars from my limbs
Where have I been

Riding high as a kite
Burning wicks by the by but where have I been

Unaware
All the while
I've been building walls in my head

And I couldn't get out
Milky ripples pulsed like radars from my limbs
Where have I been

Riding high as a kite
Burning wicks by the by but where have I been

You could never understand the passion in me
Passion doesn't make a good friend
All I ever wanted was to know what I want
I could never make up my mind

Riding high as a kite
Burning wicks by the by but where have I been?
Track Name: Dust
Dust
Lyrics by Nelson Day

Live inside a big balloon,
Float towards the silver moon and wait,
For the atmosphere to rise,
Escape the world down below where,
High above I watch you going,
And as i feel you fade,
Your love remains,

I write your name,
Down here in the dust,
I write your name,

The letters form and makes it clear,
A message from the atmosphere you say,
On a thousand wings I ride,
They carry me to purer shores,
The beating wings an overture to life,
Spent with you my friend,
Until we meet again.

Just write my name,
Down here in the dust,
Just write my name.
Track Name: Living As They Should
Living As They Should

Living As They Should
Lyrics by Simon Gledhill

Wake up un the morn
Go to bed at night
It's what I do between
I just can't get it right

Some people make it easy living as they should
Knowing all the answers and looking awful good

Wake up in the morn (alright)
Go to bed at night (at night)
It's what I do between
I just can't get it right

Some people make it easy livin' as they should
Knowing all the answers

Why can't I do it too
Start the day see it through
No matter how many lists are tattooed on my wrist
Why can't I do it too

Go to bed at dawn
Wide awake at night
What I do between
It's better left out of sight

Wake up in the morn (all right)
Go to bed at night (at night)
It's what I do between
I just can't get it right

Some people make it easy living as they should
Knowing all the answers

Why can't I do it too
Start the day see it through
No matter how many lists are tattooed on my wrist
Why can't I do it too?
Track Name: Rattlesnake
You are smooth
But you are not subtle
That is why they call you a Rattlesnake
So much to loose yet your always in trouble
Shed your skin not your state of mind

I hear what you're saying
The World has changed
Don't you know it
Thats it's no use complaining
you already had your chance

The road is long and you are unprepared
Though you hide it well
It's etched upon your face
the lines from running scared
