Track Name: Iwan
Someone, somewhere
If ever there’s an absence in your heart
Make a mark for me
I’ll still be here, i will be here

It cost me so dearly
Two years to wait for the swallow tails to fall
Forever absolution from the past
Is all they asked of me
I still feel there, i still feel there

Celebrate a smoking gun
All this blame to be hung
On closing doors and setting suns

What became of the good we knew
Down in flames, up in subterfuge
A restless mind misunderstood
Or just the bitter ashes of a loss struck youth
Track Name: The Fathom Line
Closing time, suffering another silent red tide
Down by the bridge and bride
Oh, where to begin, what started with
Fairhurst’s vision came cardinal sin
In the howling wind

A north east cove where the fallen run
But the flag is flown
The crane once rose to flourish
On this midnight shore

Ploughing through her youth, skirting streets
To fleeting arms that once warmed you
Now a noose around you
Troubled water blue, her breath evaporates
Below the pink, pink moon as she gives out to

A north east cove where the fallen run
But the flag is flown
The crane once rose to flourish
On this midnight shore
Track Name: All Is Forgotten
The streets are walled with tenements
Like a canyon swallows the sun
With taxi rank around the steeple
The church yard lives alone

Kicking holes in fences found
Wipe the slate clean, dust it down

All is forgotten, drowned in the auburn
Light that traps itself inside these
Reckless nights
All was forgiven but lost on the seventh
Day that found itself behind these
Endless nights

As buildings fall and voices pass
Like a slideshow in the rain
Sleeping bags hold broken souls
Between their loveless days

Burning bridges to the ground
Flood the senses, wash them out

All is forgotten, drowned in the auburn
Light that traps itself inside these
Reckless nights

Sirens wail, starlings swarm
All these burnt out faces leave me worn

All is forgotten, drowned in the auburn
Light that traps itself inside these
Reckless nights
All was forgiven, through the lost and hidden
Days that found us left behind
Deep beneath our lives
As we wrapped ourselves inside these
Endless nights
Track Name: In Shadows Under Trees
There are certain things that live in vain
From a photo to a letter in the grave
So raise your glasses to those who have passed
See the candle light their colours on the mast
Let their memory sleep
Until it has been woken in the dream

Break water sweet
Heart is in the sea
You raced in the shallows

There are certain things we’re told to fear
Darling, everybody moves away from here
Come celebrate the shedding of the chain
See the weary souls stand praying in the rain
Shake the moment down
Before the ashes settle on the ground

Break water sweet
Heart is in the sea
You raced in the shallows

Break water sweet
Searching for the seed
You are in shadows under trees

Break water sweet
Blood that only gave
We all condemned you to the grave
Track Name: If Ever There Is Gladness
I’m not out to win friends
He takes aim and he offers out a hand
I’m not in this for my good health
He breaths, bereft, absent of his good self

Was there ever gladness
A weakness in the scorn
If ever there was fondness here
Surely it has gone

I’m not here to speak sense
He takes a drink, losing trail of thought again
I’m the absence in your eyes
I’m the ringing in your ears
He smiles as retribution gently reappears

Is there ever gladness
A flutter in the blame
Son, if there was fondness here
Goodness knows it’s strayed

Love only came here to go
So I’ll see this course alone
Restlessly, i know
The darkness gathers at my door
This path is walked and set in stone
This life is but a passing glow

If ever bad blood lingered here
In ailing arms, once held so dear
If ever there was gladness here
Surely it has come
Track Name: Beyond The Heath
Sleepless eyes
We should get out of here
Draw a line
Below the night

We gotta ride
Breathless or otherwise
It’s never if not tonight
To be out tearing wild

There’s a world hidden in darkness
Where we ought to go
There’s a light beyond the heath
Where the feelings wash over us

Nothing finds
Me like a bruising sky
Above the river line
Down by the North Carr Light

We’ve got a right
To spend our fading lives
Just wasting the night trying to talk
And forget why we fight

There’s a world hidden in darkness
We ought to go
There’s a light beyond the heath
Where the feelings wash over
There’s a world hidden in darkness
Where we ought to go
There’s a love beyond the doubt
Where the feelings wash over
All we’ve ever known
Track Name: The Genesis
He’s a model of the man
That took a shot at love so they would understand
His hollow words and modest plan
What he’d change to have her
To change the girl she was back then

A stark runner in the world
Following a voice in the dark
A stark summer in the girl
Whites of her eyes free and wild

He’s a mirror to the past
Troubled by the life he built to forget everything
But he swears it all, some day, will end
The repetitions in the reasons to be here
Are gone again

A stark runner in the world
Following a voice in the dark
A stark summer in the girl
Whites of her eyes free and wild
Track Name: (I'm) Telescoping
Sweet satellite
New as the night, celestial sight for sore eyes
Moving light
Waxing away, in the dark of the day she belongs

And now I’m telescoping to find those rays
Her light turns the tides and the days

When deep in flight
She’ll hypnotize any regular guys with a gaze
We sleep inside
Heavenly face lighting the place where you lay
Move in tight
Some light the way to the opposite side
Of the dawn

And now I’m telescoping to find those rays
Her light turns the tides and the days

And now I’m barely coping without those ways
Her life turns the tides and the days
Track Name: Language of Faint Theory
Some weight in the words
Might change you for the worse
Some understated opener
Some thread of who you were

Some feign in between
The gone, the should have been
Some overrated empathy
Some glimmer of a dream

Lost in a language of faint theory

There’s a love
Cracked, unbowed above
Just the love
Though cruel and maybe reckless, virtuous

Some flurry or burst
Could make the damage worth
Some undulated sense of curse
Some darker quip of verse

Some day a subtle feat
Lays waste to the ordinary
Some slight of heart simplicity
Some struggle to beat free

Travel in lines of vague symmetry

There’s a love
Cracked, unbowed above
Just the love
Though cruel and maybe reckless, virtuous

There’s a love
That finds you in the end
There’s a love
That gets you in the end
There’s a love
That finds you in the end
There’s a love
That gets us in the end
Track Name: Bellefield Moon
We were only trying
To make a little fun
Take in the morning sun
Unaware, laying bare the birches gone

We were hardly thinking
A subtle change would come
The middle fades as one
Unbeknown, a seed was sown
A growing love alone

Hesitating moon
Enveloped hearts, the fall and bloom
Neon city gloom

We were barely sixteen
Two brothers by the light
Bellefield through Small’s Wynd
Like the river fades, the hours strayed
We whiled away the night

We were only trying
To change the world it seemed
Kicking through the fallen leaves
I’ll be there just laying bare the birches
To the breeze

Hesitating moon
Enveloped hearts, the fall and bloom
So walk a while with me
Throw your arm around me
Glowing city gloom
