Track Name: Caroline
Caroline, Caroline.
Tell me what's on your mind.
Sorry eyes under starry skies
Wanna sleep the whole day through
Satisfied just passing time
I guess we already knew
I'd pull apart, away from you
Split like the river in two

And whispers of sorrow
That blow through your ears
Carrying all of tomorrows fears

Caroline just take your time
Soon you'll reach the shore
Caroline don't look behind
Tomorrow's a long way to walk

With whispers of sorrow
That blow through your ears
Carrying all of tomorrows fears

My heart is like an old broken drum
Always missing the beat
Slowed down heavy and hard
Can barely stay on my feet
Head low keep hanging on
To all the things I can't keep
Wind blows and I'm letting go
Just like the last autumn leaf

Caroline, Caroline.
Not a thing I would change
Can't do it over again
So goodbye my sweet Caroline
Goodbye my sweet....
Track Name: Lonesome River
Lonesome River
Please take me with ya
I'm tired but I ain't got no home
I feel weary, my heart is heavy
I'm tired but I ain't got no home

Oh where the wind blows
Is where I wanna be
Floating like driftwood
Eternally
Nowhere is somewhere
I'd like to go
Lost in the slip-streams
The ebb and the flow

Oh solemnly carry me to the sea
Gently on where I'll meet
The Estuary
Carry me home carry me home

I feel the moonlight move the waves
Softly and gently upon where I sway
Memories of moments of moments gone by
Drift from my thoughts and return to the sky

Oh solemnly carry me to the sea
Gently on where I'll meet
The Estuary
Carry me home carry me home

Lonesome river please take me with ya
I'm tired but I ain't got no home
I feel weary, my heart is heavy
I'm scared of living, just don't feel ready
So lonesome river, please take me with ya
I'm tired but I ain't got no home
Track Name: Come With Me
Marry me to the sea
The thing about you and me
Is we've always been to free
For them to let us be
If we tried and we lied
We can keep the dream alive

The sound of the days
Keep ticking away
I know I'm gonna miss ya
But I can't stay
Why don't you come with me?

Like a bird against the wind
Flying hard against everything
When the wind begins to change
Darling, we can start again

Won't you please just come with me
On my knees, oh my Niz, please come with me

The life that we might have is right
Before our very eyes
We just need a disguise
To get to the other side
If we do then we prove
There's nothing that we can't do
Between me and you

Like a bird against the wind
Flying hard against everything
When the wind begins to change
Darling, we can start again

Won't you please just come with me
On my knees, oh my Niz, please come with me
Track Name: Devils Swing
Why deal with devils when the preacher pays your rent
You gotta hole in your head and you say its heaven sent
There's a body in the barrel that the good guys left
There reeking stinking stench of death cos

Everybody Dies
Everybody Dies

Two in the bar eyeball like frogs
Waitin for the winner of the Dead Eyed drop
Uptown fingers clutch like claws
Bald old-timer dog of war
Everybody Dies
Always that same old feeling
Light your cigarette
Put Johnny on the jukebox
If it helps you to forget
Every day a new day
No telling what tomorrow will bring
Just thank your lucky stars
When the devil begins to sing

I hear you want some sunshine
I hear you want it quick
Better put on all your walking shoes
And take another trip
Fly across the Gobi
West across the waves
Don't mess with that old voodoo
Let the devil sing that way
Track Name: Blue River
In the first breath of morning
Through the tangerine light
On a warm and Sandy road
Where the blue river flows

Golden sand beneath my feet
And the birds laughing at me
On a warm and sandy road
Where the blue river flows

Where the days have no name
Red sunlight warms the rain
Step on board our old wooden boat
Where the blue river flows

Beneath an orange moon
The starlit wáter glows
On the waves, we drift and sway
Where the blue river flows

Sleep sweetly with a smile
And dream for a while
Of a warm and Sandy road
Where the blue river flows
Track Name: Lucky Stars
For a thousand miles
The road twists turns and smiles
Go back on ourselves
Just for the hell
To keep it going a while

We’ll sleep under the moon
When the cities out of room
And all that we face
From the hardships to the grace
Just to feel alive when it’s through

Just wait for the morning
To see what the day might bring
When we think that we’re falling
Just pick ourselves up and sing

We find ourselves there
From Edinburgh to anywhere
catchin’ a ride up on destinies side
to Where nothing quite compares

In the pouring rain
Lightening heavens veins
Our lucky stars have brought us this far
I feel like I’m born again

Just wait for the morning
To see what the day might bring
When we think that we’re falling
Just pick ourselves up and sing

Takes the breath out of me
Transmit in Ecstasy
All that we have
For as long as it lasts
Is all we’ll ever need
Track Name: Voices
Don't look, don't look for me.
Cos it's hard, it's hard to be
when it all gets lost inside your head
you say you know you never forget

Don't change, don't change who you are
cos you lost, you found out who you're not
and it's all too much for me to take,
my mind says no, my body will break

It's not the voices in my head,
she moves through me and my sanity says
I need you now before they take me away
my mind was all for you to take

Why cry, why cry so much
when you need, when you need my touch
but it all gets lost inside your head
I say I know I'll never forget.

Don't forget to say bye when you go
cos I feel no more love and she's letting go
I ache for the days, when she took me away
the woman you lose is the woman that stays

And I'd like to say why I even try
they look like they do, but then always pass by
I ache for the days when she took me away
the woman you lose is the woman that stays
and it all gets lost
and she moves through me
but I, I can see
she did it all for me.
Track Name: Under The Spreading Chestnut Tree
under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me
I sit with my hand in your hand and I said
I'll make you a promise we'll do it again

Yeah soon my love we will dance
in a suicide romance

backward and forwards and upwards we talk
but the words tide it is turning and away I do fall
I sit with my head in my hands and I say
why does it always end up this way

goodbye my love
goodbye my love

(this isn't like me at all)
(this isn't like me at all)

We spoke in the rain
As the cold season change
In the sight of spring
I remember everything
I awoke to taste
A dream I erased

now I cant sleep
nothing tastes as sweet
in four walls of me
I fall silently

so I think I should go
I think you should know
I've been through your mind
in time I hope that you'll see
that memory of me
that makes you smile
and in that place we would go
where your flowers they grow
by your favorite tree
I'll pick one up for her
and give it to you
in someone new

Under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me
Track Name: Resolve
Put your clothes on it's not what it seems
wipe your smile with all your broken dreams
sit tight and tell me just what you meant
your tongue is talking but your not making sense

and so it's so sentimental to
confuse the virgin of her fruit
God's got an answer in a sympathetic smile
lost in the pages of a human denial

put it all together boy it's all in your head
the secrets that they sold you were the ones you never read
and so it seems what you know is never right
what makes you different when you scream and fight

cos they all stand up for you
go fetch the stick for you
and they trust no one but you
but I say God is in us too

It's never over the wars have just begun
Jesus is living in an asylum
crucified with drugs
normality
and colors fight on reality-v

But I won't stand up for you
go Fetch the stick for you
cos I trust no one like you
I say God is in us too

I'm not making no sense if the moment pretends
to be anything but you
in a blissful decline
we slowly entwine
and forget we ever knew
I'm not making no sense
get it all off my chest
but all's I seem to do
Resolve
