AND THE THIEF CAME IN Formaldehyde and glutaraldehyde too With the methanol swirling round Laid out in your room And the Parish loved the tunes Then the rain came down Everything came crashing down As we laid you in the ground Seems like nothing’s ever gonna come easy Feel like I'm unravelling slowly If I swallow myself will I grow or disappear Is it ok if I just sit here? Camouflage balloon That the thief came in And the thief came in the night Stole everything in sight Seems like nothing's ever gonna come easy Feel like I'm unravelling slowly If I swallow myself will I grow or disappear Is it ok if I just sit here? Ain't nothing ever gonna come easy I feel like I'm unravelling slowly If I swallow myself will I grow or disappear Is it ok if I just sit here?

Burns 03:17
BURNS Well here comes the bomb now Here comes the windows Just keep your head down They’re coming in If you feel your spirit waning Don’t be shy now Take my hand

Tsundoku 03:24
TSUNDOKU I don't read a lot of books But I like to buy them Piled beside my bed Gently reminding My mind to open And my heart to slow Let the good part overflow Circling the sun It's the great conundrum Oh there goes another one Straight into the doldrums Now my body's aching And my mind is slow Let the good part overflow If your whole world's shaking Try to keep control And let the good part Let the good part Let the good part overflow Tsundoku is what I do Maybe you do it too? Tsundoku is what I do

Walking Away 03:07
WALKING AWAY Got to feeling down and all alone And there’s nowhere around that feels like home All those empty mouths talking All those vacant eyes gawking Took too much and now I’ve figured out What this holy show is all about In a plastic sea I’m floating A fantastic dream is loading for you I’m walking away Singing a love song I’m walking away A recycled heart is better than A disciple’s part in a broken plan All those sacred houses fallen A forsaken voice is calling for you I’m walking away Singing a love song I’m walking away
5.
GOLDEN AGE Coolest thing I ever seen Flashback from the 1970s Pale blonde Fender Southern hair Faded in the retro furniture Our evaporating dreams Built in garages on dead end streets Nearly noises Burned and blue Casualties before we even knew It’s the golden age It’s the golden age Way back when the world was good Way back then before we understood It’s the golden age It’s the golden age No fixation on the screens ‘cept for pixelated Spectrum games Loading noises Tapes to share Some things never work but we don’t care It’s the golden age It’s the golden age Way back when the world was good Way back then before we understood It’s the golden age It’s the golden age

Chinooks 03:26
CHINOOKS Burrow alone in the dark Building a fort for my heart Before it gets broken By the government and the palindromes Forcing my face to the wall Violence running the halls A crucifix of confusion To carry alone Remember the night that we heard those old bin lids Renting the video tapes Rewinding I plan my escape I've always felt different Even now in my middle days Society isn't for me I'll take the periphery Dream of Rathlin East You and I in the lamplight Searching the night for the sound of old bin lids Chinooks are on their way…

Salt 04:31
SALT You say that it’s not my fault You gotta sweet tooth and I’m salt I don’t believe you I don’t believe you I don’t believe you I like real butter on my bread You’re saying it’s too hard to spread I don’t believe you I don’t believe you I don’t believe you How come it feels so How come it feels so good Even if it is true You know that it feels so good Your eyes are glued to the screen You think my mind is obscene I don’t believe you I don’t believe you I don’t believe you How come it feels so How come it feels so good Even if it is true You know that it feels so good

SOMEONE K NEW Searching the scene Stuck on the in-between Somebody new Suffering cos they’re not you I twist a lot but it is never in time There’s bound to be a better way till I find Someone K New Showed up and it wasn’t you Standing alone Cutting me to the bone And all of the while Still with the sweetest smile I twist a lot but it is never in time There’s bound to be a better way till I find I twist a lot but it is never in time There’s bound to be a better way till I find Someone K New Showed up and it wasn’t you

Trampolining 03:32
TRAMPOLINING They're trampolining all over the place While the machines are controlling the race Bombs and bullets are bouncing all the children into heaven Do you think that's right? Hello one and all Hello hello hello hello hello I heard the government's moving the sky And everywhere that you look is an eye I'd love to know what they're hoping to reveal and what they're stealing Is it my mind? Hello one and all Hello hello hello hello hello Well all I want to do is bounce with you And if your love is true you’d be bouncing too Well all my waking dreams are of the bouncing scene And it’s always you and me on the trampoline I heard the birds they were calling your name I tried to join in with them to my shame It seems I haven't got harmony and so I Simply won't fly Hello one and all Hello hello hello hello hello Goodbye it's time to go
11.
Plug your phone in for a while Watch the bars go up and smile Never need to leave your home These days kids play on their own It's all around you now The machines, The Cloud All surround you now Is there anyone here Who can heal the trembling of my heart? If I show you my fears Could you heal the trembling of my heart? Hold on Hold on disease For The Singularity
