about

Track Name: Incident at Night
That soon caught up with me on that infamous night.
I was taking a short cut with the morning on my mind.
You were only thinking about the numbers next to your name.

I hope you feel better and I hope that you sleep well at night.
I know my own flaws but I thought you would treat them lightly.
For a moment I lost some of my rights.
My nightmare came true on that given night.

I was searching my conscience for the difference between wrong and right.
Came up with a lot of things that warranted active might.
Inside was a storm brewing but outside was only regret.
I was acting confession while you were the preacher of right.

I was thinking about the roles we have to play.
You are the hunter while I’m caught in a trap.
I was thinking about how to get out of its grip
Appealing to common sense but in this case it didn’t exist.

I avoided the main streets but I couldn’t avoid the light
That soon caught up with me on that infamous night.
I was taking a short cut with the morning on my mind.
You were only thinking about the numbers next to your name.
Track Name: Safely
I can close the doors to these rooms.
Use locks as many as I choose
but the lines are not defined.

We build up walls around our plots.
We electrify to keep out what is not
part of our choice.

Have cameras with lasers attached.
Wild animals to scare and detract
from any unwanted moves

Safely I keep you in my room
and feel that everything's secure
without locks and changes.

Safely I close my eyes at night
with hope that the morning's light
will appear as it always does.

I can close the doors to these rooms.
Use locks as many as I choose
but the lines are not defined.
Track Name: Very Bad Weather
Very bad weather keeps me at home through the day and night.
Stuck on the TV or anything else that can capture my thoughts
for this is the season where the days are short and the nights are long.
Very bad weather, restless bones in a closing in room.

Thinking of blue, thinking of skies, where there is no end.
Summer days true to the ideas that keep coming fresh and new.

Unhealthy the posture, unhealthy the eating simply for fun.
No sense of duty, no need to keep track as the clock goes around.
Very bad weather keeps me at home through the day and night.
Very bad weather, restless bones in a closing in room.

Thinking of blue, thinking of skies, where there is no end.
Summer days true to the ideas that keep coming fresh and new.

And if you can keep me going, 'til I see the other side.
Another you in another season with another point of view.

Very bad weather keeps me at home through the day and night.
Stuck on the TV or anything else that can capture my thoughts
for this is the season where the days are short and the nights are long.
Very bad weather, restless bones in a closing in room.
Track Name: All That I Keep Doing
I tried to write a letter, just to see these truths.
In and out of confidence when summer's truths are due.
And I fold or I don't or I break.
Life goes on, it's all I know, without change.

Inspired by ambition, tied to the safety net.
Don't look down it's not funny, up above is too bright
and it blinds when the rays of gold
lead a path through the mind for the toes to tread upon.

All too short, all too quickly, the air escapes from my lungs.
All I do is keep dreaming and hope that something may come
from the thoughts still strong in my mind
that remain all the same as a light.
And I fold or I don't or I break.
Life goes on, it's all I know, without change.
Track Name: On The Corner
You didn't worry about all those things you couldn't change.
You stood on the corner, you saw through clouds a sunny day.
You let it out for all to hear.

I used to walk on past and spare a little time
and in return for little I was given much more than mine.
You let it out for all to hear.

Some people turned away as there was so much more to do
while others felt embarrassed of afraid of what was true.
You let it out for all to hear.

I never really thought about what was there and what was true.
Without your presence and the sight of seeing you
Now it's another empty space.
Track Name: Lazy Days
Working not so much is a beautiful thing.
There's no excuse for losing time on silly things
but keeping up a pattern of study and supply is needed.
Regular nutrition and some outdoor exercise keeps my body sane.

The nights are getting longer, the mornings are the same.
I keep myself updated with the state of the world
and that's not always pretty, that's not always good for the soul.
It's rarely optimistic, can leave you feeling all alone.

In these situations advice isn't kind.
It can make you feel worthless and out of your mind
and if it's really true, then it's a bleak way to be.
If it's really true, it's you it's not me, it's not me.
Track Name: We're All Right
Numbers change and we're not the same, well all right.
Weaving in and out of the obstacles in the way.
What we can lose we can recreate if we put our thoughts away.
Perception is a changing thing when given some time and space.

Walking all alone in a neighbourhood when it's dark.
Listening out for the sound of an approach.
I could run if I wanted to but I'd prefer to stay.
There's nowhere else I could run to so I guess I'll stay.

On the verge of a new decade in a life.
Maybe there's even more then one, I hope so
'cos If I get thinking that there's only one then I can't keep fear away.
If I can make up for the things I haven't done, I guess I'll give it a try.
Track Name: Daylight Savings
The clock goes back and so does the light of day.
You're stuck in a moment which is far away.
Relative to your position, those tablets seem to wear you down.

And I'm the one who has to find the answer
'cos I'm the self-appointed seeker.
Your'e the one that has to sit and listen
so please leave questions 'til the end of this song.

Just like the centre of an audition
you call me up when you're far away.
I come running just as predicted
with a simple method to bring you down.

And I'm the one who has to find the answer
'cos I'm the self-appointed seeker.
Your'e the one that has to sit and listen
so please leave questions 'til the end of this song.
