Track Name: Summers Gown
Summers gone but I don't want you to go
because i'm still dreaming of the sweet summer glow
we'll catch the rays of the autumn haze
spending lazy days on our own.
Watch the morning light explode on the ground
paint the city white then dance through the town
and catch the breeze sailing through the trees
playing on the leaves dead and brown.
Move through the night, shining love and light
pining for the sight of summers gown.
Well morning broke to find me caught in a dream
and as I woke I still clung on to the scene
for I was wide eyed
and full of youths pride
and on a ride and seventeen.
Move through the night, shining love and light
pining for the sight of summers gown.
Summers gone but I don't want you to go
Summers gone but I don't want you to go
Track Name: Expression
Time, time, time I reconnected the lines away
Go, go, go through the crowds so stubbornly slow today

Find free autonomy, expression dies alone
Days freeze to history, concession to the unknown

Drive, drive, drive what it is to just be alive with you
Go, go, go, to the undercurrent below into

Our free autonomy, expression dies alone
Days freeze to history, concession to the unknown

Drive, drive, drive what it is to just be alive with you
Go, go, go through the undercurrent below with you

Days freeze to history, concession to the unknown
Find free autonomy, expression dies alone
Expression dies alone
Track Name: Concrete Friend
Cheap town cheap hotel
But what I came here for
Been gone since years before

So I strolled out just to tell
If an old dead tree
Could hold a memory
Going back in time again

Ghost line or simple view
This was our sacred ground
And they pulled it down
These crowds smother you
Constant as the sun
Choking everyone
Still to civilise myself

So come and find me tell me
Just like you never told me before
I spent far too long kissing the floor
Far too many knocks on the door.

So come and find me take me
From the station to the princes canal
There’s nothing left of you to sell
To the clients in the convent hotel

Did you see the skyline fall
And what am I to do
To get through to you
And so long concrete friend
For a moment in time
Only ours for a while
Goodbye again.
Track Name: Reaction
There’s a man on the corner
The sound of broken glass to my right
Storm clouds at the border
And the streets are alight

I need a reaction
Another point of view
A cold cup of distraction
Something new

Sleep, i'm flying through midnight
Trying to find a way to get out
Dreams spilling the moonlight
Across the ever growing sea of doubt

I need a reaction
Another point of view
A cold cup of distraction
Something new
Something new

Start cutting the corners
We’re closer now than ever before
Six hours to the border
Six steps to the door

If you could seal the sensation
As I watched you
Pull away from the station
Into the blue
Track Name: 1961
Within my home and family where I came from
A search for liberty, 6 generations long
Nothing ever gets me like that picture of the fall
My brother painted on the station wall

With all the old hostility within the town
The brothers drunk and wild, forever running round
They’re hiding in the hills from the fighting in the sun
They’ve had the streets since 1961

But we’ll all go together
Upon the rising tide
Singing songs to each other
Across the ocean 50 years wide

Take me to the place where liberty was found
Take me to the place where we were underground
I understand on my plot of land the crops still grow
‘neath the thieving eyes of someone I don’t know

In gods name we were banished from the neighbourhood
In my mind we were sent away for your own good
Nothing ever got me like that picture of the fall
That once stared from the knocked down station wall

But we’ll all go together
Along the mountainside
We’ll embrace one another
For those of us who’ll perish on the ride

Instrumental bit

Yeah we all went together
A convoy 50 miles wide
Made a pact with each other
To never say we saw the other side

Yeah we all went together
Wasted barely alive
Singing songs to each other
The songs that sang the story of your life
The songs that sang the story of your life
Track Name: Skipping Jack
Cold heart skipped a beat to go
And I’ll be walking through the glow
Beneath the shadows of the station

Sparks crack, skipping jack, alone
My CNS already blown
At least it is a new sensation

But all the girls stay in their cars
Clothed in crinoline and scars…
Me deep inside
Play your violin tonight

15 miles we’ll meet at your abode
I can’t stop walking in the road
At least this holes always a ghost town
5 o’clock, it could be 4
This walking soon becomes a chore
The first glimpse of the sun I pull my cap down

And pining for the moon
Morning always comes to soon…
I’ll be with you
Dancing silhouettes anew

I hope you understand
There was no chance to take it all back
Gets out of hand
Another comedy for your stack

Cold heart skipped a beat to go
And I’ll be walking through the glow
Beneath the history of our nation

Sparks crack, skipping jack, alone
So many miles I’ve got to go
Into the mess of my creation.
Track Name: Jokers Parade
All she wants is
Crystal fountains, Coffee mountains
and rain
All she sees is
Seven breezes
Cold ice freezes the pain

Now you sit at the bar
With your pills in a jar
And your body line twisted with pain
Your American car
With no stripes and no star
Driving round in the Jokers Parade
Track Name: Collide
1 a wasted hour
2 an April shower
3 a clean night brings a tiny reward
4 a crystal cavern
5 a long lost cousin
6 the system cracks in jack-knife dischord

And I keep on moving
And I keep on turning
To run away

All I wanted was gone on the tide
Locked up inside
All I saw there were rules to abide
Concepts collide

1 a peacful morning
2 a frost is forming
3 the lamp lights colour coding your eyes
4 i find a meaning
5 I must be dreaming
6 I'm sleeping as the sun starts to rise

And I keep on moving
Only ever moving
To get away

All I wanted was gone on the tide
Locked up inside
All I saw there were rules to abide
Concepts collide

All I wanted came in on the tide
Wrapped up inside
All I saw there were rules I defied
Concepts collide
