Track Name: December
Broken, got it all broken
Hoping, got it all worked out

So, we're in this together
And I hope
We'll come out soon
Track Name: Vicenarian
Life is simple, life is sweet, if not yet quite complete
My broken drum machine heart beats

Life is simple, life is sweet, if not yet quite complete
Every step you take be it with dancing feet

Life is simple, life is sweet, if not yet quite complete
Your naked skin stuck to leather interiror car seat

Life is simple, life is sweet, if not yet quite complete
Love, Life, Light, such an indominable feat

Sometimes we all talk too loud.
Lost in our own voices, our lips smack at the sounds
Locked around the bottle chomping at the bit
For just one more
For just for one more sip

And this is just the tip of a
Two ton three hundred and fifty seven foot Iceberg

And this is all it takes
Just the one minute mistake
And this is all it'll be
All it ever was
Just a wine-soaked point of serenity

You were lead footed and loose-tongued
You were dancing on table tops
It's way too much, you're far too young
And there were too many two way mirrors
In everyone's hands
What's left to ruin of our best laid plans
Of Mice and Men you helped me understand
What's left of us - is never enough of us


And this is all it takes
Just the one minute mistake
And this is all it'll be
All it ever was
Just a wine-soaked point of serenity

In Vino Veritas
Track Name: Tide
This well Tempered Clavier makes clear
What sticks in this clavicle
Oh unknown thought
You are intangible
Oh distraught voice
You are unfathomable
And so it goes
Oh Son of Man
why do you seek
the living amongst the Dead?
Is it better to die
amongst the living
then to live
amongst the dead
Oh Son of Man
why do you seek
the living amongst the Dead?
Is it better to die
amongst the living
then to live
amongst the dead
Oh such sensitivity
oh such capacious animosity
were you born this way?
Or did you choose to be
such an Arsehole.
Well so much for subtlety
you'll reap what you sow
and so it will be
so the story goes
It never ceases to ebb and flow
Track Name: Waiting
You breathe out and in
Again and again
Waiting for
The start to finally end.

Is this all?
Is this all?
Is this all?
Is this all?
Track Name: Noah
We carved our names into the timbers
And sailed for 40 nights and 40 days.
Gathered the animals
And with the lion the lamb will lay

It's not a choice we make
We're just born that way

But Lord knows
I wouldn't have it any other way
I wouldn't have it any other way
I wouldn't have it
Any other way.
Track Name: False Start
So many times I've closed and locked my door
And never left someone behind wanting so much more
12 month on and I'm still waiting for a fall
For it all to fall

But you don't fall

If I fall down
If I fall apart
We were made that way
To fall down from the start
If I fall down
If I fall apart
In our house of cards
You were always the queen of my heart.
And now I know
All the other times
All the other girls
Were just a False Start.
