Track Name: Lotus in Bloom
You want what they have
Cut them down
To build on
Fill up your cup
It’s spillin’ out
You take more
Plug it in
We'll Learn to choke on your fumes
A shadow grows around your face
Headache looms
These changes happenin’ outside your room

You’ve never seen a garden so bright
Lotus in bloom
You’ll never see it with your closed eyes
Lotus in bloom
You got the picture wrong


Walk in two suns
City lights
Burn out the sky
Hear a clear voice
Speak in tongues to you

Take a swim your lungs fill up
With oil
Don’t you realise
What you’ve begun
These days are lasting
Outside the womb


You’ve never seen a garden so bright
Lotus in bloom
You’ll never see it with your closed eyes
Lotus in bloom
You got the picture wrong
Track Name: Can't Help Yourself
Listening to their aching has left you numb
Thats when you took it upon yourself

Time passes like water running
Since you've tipped over borderline

Soon enough
All you see comes undone

You blocked out the sky
To leave them all blind

You do it

You just can't help yourself
Its you and no-one else


Eyes notice when any truth is bent enough,
You won't stand by you'll talk

You can be the barely loved and never mind

You can guide the elephant around the room

A sinking feeling creeps in over time

It's itching enough to change your mind

You go away biting your lip sometimes

But you'll do it again,
Do it again,
One more time

You just can't help yourself
Its you and no-one else

On and on it hits you today

You can have them all crippled and begging from you

No more

Then a chance for another

You'll do it till the end,
Do it with a sigh

This boat is sinking
This boat is sinking

But you're still hanging on

You're still going down

Trying to look away

But you can't help yourself
Track Name: The Void
Left in a haze,
Streaks of colour in the black
The mind separates
You’re trying to bring the picture back and
Piece by piece
It all falls together

You can (only) do it for so long
Before you know it’s gone
You gotta take it when it comes


To fill the open space:
Succumb to lust and impulse.
Regurgitate the taste
That you have slowly learned to hate and
Piece by piece
It all falls apart

You can do it for so long
Before you know it’s gone
You gotta take it when it comes

You try to make a fight of it but you’re wakin’ up .
Those dreams are meant to be forgotten,
Take all you don’t need and let it go.
Track Name: Slip Beneath
Leave well enough alone,
You won't need it when it's said and done.
Hear every word
Falling on a sense of doubt you have long ignored

Can't give one good reason,
Now the best part's gone.
You played into it so,
What if's? Listen…

You want your money back,
Hate what you've bought into.
Sleep in a body bag…
You're spitting and spitting,
Here we are.

Better leave town,
Before it gets out.
Never listen, so afraid of running backwards,
On your own
So you think could there be a little something more.

Here…
Here and now, let it go under.
There's no peace above water
Slowly slip beneath.

They go hunt in packs
They won't call you back
Higher the wave is coming now
Always, there is one more way


To get out of here
To get out of this place
Now running

Are you running away, are you stalling?
You can only see one side of it
Are you running away, are you standing?
You can only see one side of it

An immediate soul,
Then no more
The better you sow
The better you grow

Better than some
Some better than you
Bare your soul
Bare your soul.
