Track Name: Time to Grow
little by little i saved a nation
little by little i caved frustration
little by little i came inside her heart
little by little i lived inside her heart
hey time to go got to keep us all together
i bet it all they'd never know
hey time to grow got to change through all this weather
i bet that song was meant for us
little by little i killed a nation
words don't seem to kill frustration.
hey time to go got to keep us all together
i bet it all they'd never know
hey time to grow got to change through all this weather
i bet that song was meant for us
i got stopped by the timing sand
i would've helped that girl
i would have helped that man
and liberation took my soul
can i get back my heart of gold
anytime that you see when
that we could let it go that we could still be friends
let her out and i'll let her in
will you come back when we begin
hey time to go got to keep us all together
i bet it all they'd never know
hey time to grow got to change through all this weather
i bet that song was meant for us
Track Name: No Cash for Sorrow
no cash for sorrow for olders that i know.
no weathered treasure for seeds that i have sewn .
when i looked into her heart and saw that it was dark
i wondered if we were ever going home.
the city breaks her and keeps her off my heart .
our pleasure maker keeps her coming hard.
but no one else can breath in
words of any dreams .
cos all our lives the light has all been dark.
the west is better where i could leave a stain
she takes to heather which takes away her pain
and pray that it was gold
not weak like i was told
and sever all their heads and start again.
no cash for sorrow or women that i've known.
no blessed pleasure for seeds that i have sewn.
when i look into her heart .
and i see it's always dark.
i wonder if we're ever going home...
Track Name: Slowly Burning Down
fade in the sun and the fried grain is done.
your little bird isn't safe when he keeps her miles away.
when you can't keep him as one.
in a veil his love is weighing on your heart.
when you're creased in the dark you'd better hire me out a heart.
and it rose anyway but it got nowhere to stay.
is it gone? well i guess,
when i ride it out i ride it best myself.
cos we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
yeah we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
yeah we're slowly burning down
like a big ol' fire that was out of control
and when it hit at the sea it started losing it's flow
like a big ol' fire that was out of control
and when it hit at the sea it started losing it's flow.
breaking a stare and god knows i was there.
would you mind anyway but a lonely little stain.
but when no one can lose
when they do
it means we're going right through now.
cos we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
yeah we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
yeah we're slowly burning down
like a big ol' fire that was out of control
and when it hit at the sea it started losing it's flow
like a big ol' fire that was out of control
and when it hit at the sea it started losing it's flow.
gone are old ways.
and stop it now , the rest have all been laid.
cos we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
yeah we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
yeah we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
yeah we're slowly burning down (like a big ol' fire)
Track Name: Before the Killing Started
drenched in her world,
i'm in love, with myself,
and breaking her heart, i'm not well and never lost,
when i wait around her in the dark before i start,
and i'll take anyone i want, it's never gone,
and yeah maybe she won't like it
that's no reason to keep fighting it
fighting, fighting, i can't fight it, fight it
faking it all and closing off, is just game
and taking her thoughts and killing them off
is just insane
when i wait around her in the dark before i start.
and i'll take anyone i want i'm never gone.
and yeah maybe she won't like it that's no reason to keep fighting it.
fighting, fighting, i keep fighting, fighting i can't fight it.
other people they won't mind it
i had a mind but i can't find it
with a reason to keep fighting
i need to feel something i'm not buying
and other people they don't mind it
i had a mind but i can't find it
with a reason to keep fighting
i need it, i need it.
drenched in her blood i'm not loved, i'm by myself
and played with her heart taking it all
i'm always lost
when i wait around her in the dark
before i start
and i'll take anyone at all
i'm never gone
and yeah maybe she won't like it
that's no reason to keep fighting it
fighting fighting i can't fight it
i keep fighting fighting i can't fight it.
Track Name: For All My Dying Flowers
in every way i show her
when i look into her eyes
the colour of her skin
and the colours i could prise
with every turning hour
just living with no lives
we could make it worth it when it falls into the night
and even when the sun ain't shining
and all my flowers are dying
well i can't help but love you
and i'm so sad they shot you.
and even when the bells they ring
and every man and child they sing
yeah, i can't help but love you
and i'm so sad they shot you.
and just by chance we made this.
we fell into this life.
and now our candles burning
and i'm sure that we're alright
oh but, but when i look at her
i know that she was right.
when she said
we're all gonna die someday but life will just be fine.
and even when the sun ain't shining
and all my flowers are dying
well i can't help but love you
and i'm so sad they shot you.
and even when the bells they ring
and every man and child they sing
yeah, i can't help but love you
and i'm so sad they shot you.
go go anyone stand on my gold gold
hand on my hand on my hole hole
thin you are thin you are
sold sold anywhere you wanna be.
go go anyone stand on my gold gold
hand on my hand on my hole hole
thin you are thin you are
sold sold anywhere you wanna be.
and even when the sun ain't shining
and all my flowers are dying
well i can't help but love you
and i'm so sad they shot you.
and even when the bells they ring
and every man and child they sing
yeah, i can't help but love you
and i'm so sad they shot you.
Track Name: Oh Little Me
We're burstin' the side's that make it
And the worst is it's breaking my heart
Yeah listen to all of those women
They're all racing to pick out a star
Can see it?
And we're chasing the ends to make it
I let her out on the farm
We're all getting carried out naked
But then death couldn't do any harm

Singing oh little me, oh little me I am so brave
Oh little me what a mistake
Oh little me, oh little me
I can't be saved
Oh little me I am a fake.

Yeah, I'm not afraid of you
Acting like no one knew
I'm just afraid of you being you.

Just gather up and take what is broken
So nothing is left but the bone
A seasons been rudely awoken
And buried all the unknown
It's free, take it home

Singing oh little me, oh little me I am so brave
Oh little me what a mistake
Oh little me, oh little me
I can't be saved
Oh little me I am a fake.

Yeah, I'm not afraid of you
Acting like no one knew
I'm just afraid of you being you.

We're all miles together
breaking off at the ends
Don't set the rain upon me
I've got a message to send

Oh little me, oh little me I am so brave
Oh little me what a mistake
Oh little me, oh little me
I can't be saved
Oh little me I am a fake.

Yeah, I'm not afraid of you
Acting like no one knew
I'm just afraid of you being you.
I said yeah, I'm not afraid of you
Acting like no one knew
I'm just afraid of you being you.
Track Name: Pirates of the Battered Sea
Stripped down
Slightly out of touch with everyone
Later on a side of me I can't believe is gone
Has carried on.

It's hard feel the same love
When you can't even share the same pain
And there's things I think you'll never know
It's too hard for me to explain (x2)

Let her change
Separate the burden from the load
And let it go
Straight out or staring at the ground
I could not be lost here
Just happy now, happy now

It's hard feel the same love
When you can't even share the same pain
And there's things I think you'll never know
It's too hard for me to explain (x2)

Sometimes it's working forever
But we're braking the lines the wrong way
If only those eyes could never
See what we only do some days, some days

Well it's hard feel the same love
When you can't even share the same pain
And there's things I think you'll never know
It's too hard for me to explain (x2)
