Track Name: A Moment of Magic
In a world of cynics and egos
where you walk a road made of glass
everyone's a walking placebo
everyone's so jaded and crass
fading so fast

but when you lift up your face
and deliver that radiant glow
Well you could light up the streets with the warmth of your magical soul

When the kids are all out of fashion
When the songs are barren and blue
When the voice is drained of all passion
Maybe this world's waiting for you
Waiting for you

but when you lift up your face
and deliver that radiant glow
Well you could light up the streets with the warmth of your magical soul

Could this be a moment of magic to silence the fools ?
Could this be the moment of truth ?

In a moment of magic, you spin things around
In a moment of magic, the world tumbles down
Track Name: Apathy
A little to the left, calamity
A little too right and you're history
Lying in the middle I'm comatose
I can't decide
with so much treachery

Watching as the system replicates
Patching up the holes, and reprobates
Underneath the cover with poetry
I choose to hide my raw apathy

This is my world, and where I am
I'm doing the best that I possibly can
I'm shaping the dirt into something new
A place that's just for me and you

The word of the judge and the brief celebs
The word of the cops and insatiable plebs
Running through the tunnel of media screens
I can't escape this onslaught of greed

This is my world, and where I am
I'm doing the best that I possibly can
I'm shaping the dirt into something new
A place just for me and you

Underneath the cover with poetry
I choose to hide my raw apathy

This is my world, and where I am
I'm doing the best that I possibly can
I'm shaping the dirt into something new
A place just for me and you

This is my world, and where I am
I'm doing the best that I possibly can
I'm shaping the dirt into something new
A place that's just for me and you
Track Name: The Greatest Invention
This could be the greatest invention I’ve ever seen
lucid and clean
a gleaming machine
have you ever seen
such a beautiful sight
rising up into the light
this is for you
a room with a view so bright

This could be
an amazing addition to history
frozen in time forever to shine as a mystery
whatever the weather
the people can bring this together
they’re growing the tree
for you and for me
it’s so right

This could be the greatest invention I’ve ever seen
lucid and clean
a gleaming machine
have you ever seen?
Track Name: Silent Cavities
Condemnation
such an ugly thing
Never here when he's with you
But when he watches as you're closing the door
The fingers on the trigger
I don't know what he's going to do

Imagination
such a deadly thing
The mind can wander out of view
And when he thinks about the shrinking room
The fingers on the trigger
I don't know what he's going to do

Empty spaces, silent cavities
An empty chair still faces you
He closed the book before you got to the end
You're looking in the mirror
and you don't know what you're going to do

Imagination
such a deadly thing
The mind can wander out of view
And when he thinks about the shrinking room
The fingers on the trigger
I don't know what he's going to do

Empty spaces, silent cavities
An empty chair still faces you
He closed the book before you got to the end
You're looking in the mirror
and you don't know what you're going to do
Track Name: Every Little Light Will Shine
Here comes the sun
shining on everyone
now that you can see the things that we have done
so come on come on

Here comes the light
Making everything so bright
Bringing out the best in everybody’s life
now It’s alright

Here come the stars
reminding us of what we are
Every little light will shine and play its part
and that’s a start

Here comes the sun
shining on everyone
now that you can see the things that we have done
so come on come on
Track Name: Beautiful Silence
So you never went to work today
Cut the ropes and then you set your boat astray
And as you sail away

You're just looking at the open sea
Lots of promises no guarantees
What will be will be

There isn't really any words when you're devoid of sensation
There isn't really any words that can come after such violence
Just beautiful silence

Looking down at your peaceful face
I will give you just one last embrace
before you leave the race

All the pictures that I have of you
All the sounds that you gave me change their tune
and your sweet perfume

There isn't really any words when you're devoid of sensation
There isn't really any words that can come after such violence
Just beautiful silence
Track Name: The Last Bastion of my Mind
Welcome to the long corridor of dreams
Take your time and slowly, carefully choose any door in your mind
We've got lots of time

This is where you'll stay
Every night and day

Slowly close your eyes
you don't need them here
in the dark
The rats will heighten your senses
and help shed your tears
Help you fight your fears

I really really got to get my shit together
I really got to get out of this place
Before the last bastion of my mind gets totally phased
I really really got to get my shit together
I really got to get out of this place
Before the last bastion of my mind gets totally phased

Slowly close your eyes
you don't need them here
in the dark
The rats will heighten your senses
and help shed your tears
Help you fight your fears

This is where you'll stay
Every night and day
with the sounds
of suffering in the walls
faintly screaming your name

I really really got to get my shit together
I really got to get out of this place
Before the last bastion of my mind gets totally phased
I really really got to get my shit together
I really got to get out of this place
Before the last bastion of my mind gets totally phased

This is where you'll stay
Every night and day
Track Name: Reaching the Age of Reason
The line I chalk is moving beyond my fingertips
The observations and the thoughts in my mind are ripe
Genetic engineering myself - No I just don't need anyone else
I'm wide awake and finally breaking through to the age of,
Through to the age of reason

The numbers count up and down in the calculations
I watch the words rearranging themselves on the page
Working it out myself - No I just don't need anyone else
I'm wide awake and finally breaking through to the age of,
Through to the age of reason

and from a black and white world where it was much much duller
everybody comes to life in these unfamiliar colours

Genetic engineering myself - No I just don't need anyone else
I'm wide awake and finally breaking through to the age of,
Through to the age of reason

Reasons to live
Reasons to stare into the gun
Reasons to give
Reasons to grab the cash and run
Reasons to run and reasons to stay
Reasons to go back to bed
Reasons to be cheerful
As Ian Dury said 'Get back into bed'

and from a black and white world where it was much much duller
everybody comes to life in these unfamiliar colours
Track Name: Wish You Were Here
I make a shape out the city lights
and narrow my depth of field
looks like a test for the colour blind
blurring the fake and the real

The only things that we can share
The sunsets, the stars, the rain
So I'll just sit down here and stare
Scratching marks into the wall each day

With every second that creeps on by
another day dies in me

With every sunrise I'm thinking of you
The memories of wonderful things that you do
I write to remember with paper and pen
I hope and I wish and I pray that I'll see you again

I try to keep you in the mind
but sometimes the words escape
I shout your name inappropriately
as the world becomes a dark moonscape

With every second that creeps on by
another day dies in me

With every sunrise I'm thinking of you
The memories of wonderful things that you do
I write to remember with paper and pen
I hope and I wish and I pray that I'll see you again

The ink it just smears
with hundreds of tears
on hundreds of letters that all say
I wish you were here
Track Name: Up Here Down There
From up here
Skimming the tops of the clouds
6 miles away from the crowds
I'm closer to you

Out there
I can see infinite life
I see the day and the night
black red then blue

All around the squares
There are people rushing everywhere
with the orders of the day
agendas to prepare

What do people care
when they don't have time to stand and stare
clutching thoughtless resolutions
out of thin air

Rain
falls from the weather below
watching it work and control
cleanses my soul

In a distant land
There a people holding out their hands
Praying for just one thing on your long list of demands

What do people care
when they don't have time to stand and stare
clutching thoughtless resolutions
out of thin air
Track Name: Drunk and Disorderly
Here's a toast to the potion
You look good but do you understand
I've got so much devotion
not for you - for the glass in my hand
that looks me in the eye
it's looking at me in the eye
This glass you see in front of me
is looking me in the eye, eye, eye
I love you
and your friends and your animals too
Out on the tiles, I can fashion a smile
with the spirits in front, I could walk for a thousand miles

I don't feel any weather
I don't feel the snow flakes come down
They just look like white feathers
Sent to me like a prodigal crown

that looks me in the eye
it's looking at me in the eye
These jewels you see in front of me
are looking me in the eye, eye, eye
I love you
and your friends and your animals too
Out on the tiles, I can fashion a smile
with the spirits in front , I could walk for a thousand miles
