Track Name: Vulnerable
when we first met i was so confident - it was a trait you were drawn to - when we first met i was invincible - wasn’t a storm that i wouldn’t walk through - when we first met i was so flexible - wasn’t a skill that i couldn’t just hone - when we first met i was resilient - there were no fears of being alone * but now my love is just something you can choose - and i’m vulner- able vulnerable vulnerable around you - and your love is the one thing i can’t lose - and i’m vulnerable vulnerable vulnerable it’s true * when we first kissed it was indelible - it was a moment of wordless truth - when we first kissed it wasn’t tellible - maybe a quick affair on the hoof - *CHORUS* - and i’m not so attractive to you as a mouse in the elephant enclosure in the zoo - and i’m not so attractive nope - in the lion’s den i’m the baby antelope - when we first met i was so confident *CHORUS to end....
Track Name: Hiding Things
you know that i love you - you know that i care - you know that you’re deep within my heart grandaughter - you know that i’ve been behaving strangely - been behaving derangely - but it’s not my fault i can’t behave how i ought to *i’m hiding things from you - hiding things from you* i know that you love me - i know that you’re scared - but in a weird way perhaps this’ll help you get prepared - ‘cos when i’m long gone and you’re suffering with some strife - i’l have hidden something useful in a corner of your life *CHORUS to end...
Track Name: Lullaby's Answer
i don’t want the day to end, i don’t want to say goodnight to my friends - i don’t want the day to end - i don’t want to say goodnight, no* and i’m physically tired - but i feel so awake - and the morning was a moment ago - so it seems - then it’s taken away - like a dream at the end of the day *CHORUS* there are so many calls - that i still have to make - there are so many lives i could lead - so it seems but i never am sure - like the dreams that we have to endure *CHORUS* i don’t want to turn out the light, no - i don’t want to be tucked up tight, no.
Track Name: Music In My Feet

there’s no room for me in your life - there’s no room for me in your life - there’s no window - no door - no ceiling - no floor - there’s no room anymore anymore - there’s no room for you in my life - there’s no time - no place - dimension of space - there’s no room anymore anymore - there’s no room for us in our lives...rpt...

Track Name: Better
I see your conundrum - you know about my way back when - and down in the dungeon - you’re wondering if i’ll get the bends - you comb your hair - i’m genuflecting at your feet - singing - better than i did before - better than i did before - i’ve signed the pe- tition - i’m simple as a piece of wood - it’s not a position i’m taking cos i think i should - you seem concerned - i’m stuck in a revolving door - better than i did before - people change incrementally - into creatures they don’t want to be - good intentions are no guarantee of constancy - I see your dilemna - my words reflect a passing mood - and with every tremor - a different meaning is construed - you watch the clock - but i’m the one with moving hands - singing better than i did before...rpt...
Track Name: Machine
i give you that gun - what fun - i know that you’ll use it - i give you my trust - boom bust - i know you’ll abuse it - i give you that whip - let rip - i know that you’ll crack it - i show you might cheek - so meek - i know that you’ll smack it - baby baby baby you are just a machine - baby you’ll just a machine - i give you my view - boo hoo - i know that you’ll mock it - i give you that door - want more - i know that you’ll lock it - i give you my wrists - what bliss - i know that you’ll bind them - i lend you my teeth - oh keith - i know that you’ll grind them - baby baby baby you are just a machine - baby you’ll just a machine - you get a little power and it’s always the same - it’s just an opportunity to play a brand new game - you get a little power and it’s always the same - you throw in your humanity and pass on the blame - baby baby baby you are just a machine....
Track Name: Wormhole Weekend
found myself on a wormhole week- end - with a parallel life that was better than mine - just a little bit healthier - just a little bit stealthier - just a little bit wealthier - i said hey are you happy - he said yes oh yes - found myself on a worm- hole weekend - with a parallel life that was worse than mine - just a little less time to spare - just a little less natural hair - just a little less friends to care - i said hey are you happy - he said yes oh yes - myself found me on a wormhole weekend - with a parallel life that he wouldn’t disclose - he said hey are you happy - i said yes oh yes.
