Track Name: Under the Influence
Take a seat and look around
The space fills with a cluster of noise,
And blinding lights that expose your eyes

I sink to the bottom of my glass,
And wear its influences
Like a letterbox over my eyes,
Over my eyes

Take your keys and run outside
The space fills with a wall of air,
And blinding lights that expose your eyes

I sink to the bottom of my glass,
And wear its influences
Like a letterbox over my eyes,
Over my eyes

Over my eyes

Vignetted by coral reef tiles,
Spinning around
Blood vessel streets below me,
Spinning around
Spinning around
Lose my balance,
Sink and drown
Track Name: Like Wax Models
You don’t want to know,
You just sit staring, humouring us

The clouds have stopped to observe,
Grey and stony faced

You’re just a child,
Dragged round a museum,
Waiting to leave

Behind the glass,
No sound permeates

We have travelled miles
To be burnt at the stake

You're just a child,
Dragged round a museum,
Waiting to leave
Track Name: A Common Grey
Her skin turns to clay,
And she moulds herself into a box
Subjective thoughts may stay,
And linger in her polluted head

Factory friends cough up a common grey
They stain the blank canvas

A single blank emotionless face,
Coughs up a common grey
Track Name: Halflight
The sky is compact,
Cushion blimps scout for something
I'm not in any rush now,
To leave without the lights off

I look out at the soft buzz settling,
Like dust on cars at night,
'Cause I'm not in any rush now,
To leave without the lights off

Blue floods onto my ceiling,
Crawls down my wall
Rests on the carpet,
Next to the door
Peeks its head through the keyhole

I'm not in any rush now,
See no reason to leave without the lights off
Track Name: Trees
Furry ears and scampering feet,
Over twisted bark and blood red leaves
Follow us and you'll come to find,
The forest where all the trees have eyes

Garden gnome swims in the lake,
Hamadryads watch from the trees
Follow us and you'll come to find,
The forest where all the trees have eyes

Feeling the moss between your toes and your fingers,
Divided by streaks of blindfolded light
Track Name: Songs to Pass the Time
Take your light,
Deep orange lantern will guide us through
Stumble into the night,
Through amber specks of fire flies

You bring me back down

At the end of a jetty, we'll find
Songs to pass the time

Hindered by my doubts,
I'd have tripped over my senses
But I kept calm
