Download for FREE!!!

Thanks to everyone who has put me on at a show, everyone I have been on a gig with, anyone who has said nice things about my music and anyone who has listened even to 10 seconds, all my friends who come down to gigs or overly support me. It means so much to me.

Now go and listen to someone else's music, its better.

Thanks: Brandon Smith, Stephen James, Gerrard Bell-Fife, Flood Manual, the happy birthdays, Me Rex, Crywank, Anne Kahn, Daniel Piper, Alex Wells, Tekla, Alex Bonnefoi, Strange Friends, Matt Fox, Tea Leaf, Sonic AM and probably loads more, but my memory probably aint perfect sorry.

Track Name: Mantra
HOW COME IT FEELS LIKE ITS
GONE WRONG AGAIN IN MY TIME
DO WE NEED TO GIVE THIS A TRY
CAUSE WHOS FEEDING WHO WITH LIES

THIS IS MY MANTRA, THE END, THE END, THE END
THIS IS MY MANTRA, THE END, THE END, THE END

COLLAPSES DO COME FAST
HOPE'S JUST A THING OF THE PAST
IF I BLEED WHEN WILL I DIE
WILL I BE DRAGGED INSIDE
TO BELIEVE IS NOT A CRIME
BUT WHEN WILL TWO SIDES COLLIDE

THIS IS MY MANTRA, THE END, THE END, THE END
THIS IS MY MANTRA, THE END, THE END, THE END
IT'S THE END
IT'S THE END
IT'S THE END
IT'S THE END
Track Name: What Will Come From Big Ideas
HOW LONG BEFORE WE LOSE TRUST
BEFORE ALL TURNS TO RUST
WHEN WE LOSE OUT
IN THE WAR THAT BRINGS ABOUT
THE LONGEST LASTING DROUGHT
WHO WILL REFUSE
TO SEE BEYOND THE NEWS
GIVE WHAT IS BROKE TO THOSE LAST FEW

IT'S HARD TO MAKE SENSE OF THINGS WHEN WILL THEY BACK DOWN

WHATS A BROKEN BONE WORTH IF I STRAY OUT OF LINE I DONT KNOW IF I'LL MAKE IT ON TIME

ALL THAT COMES FROM BIG IDEAS IS HOPES THEN FEARS

SO MAKE YOURSELF A BIG IDEA, DO YOU NOT HAVE ONE?

AND YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
TO BE AN AVERAGE MAN
IT'S BETTER NOT TO HOPE
THAN FACE THE LONG TIGHTROPE

HANDILY IMAGINED IS THE FEAR THAT ALL CONSUMES
Track Name: No Body Helps (You'll Die Soon)
GO ON YOUR PHONE YOU'LL DIE SOON
RUN A RED LIGHT YOU'LL DIE SOON
DON'T LOOK LEFT OR RIGHT YOU'LL DIE SOON
DON'T TRY TO SHOW OFF YOU'LL DIE SOON

DON'T RISK, TO BREAK YOUR BODYS HEALTH

LOST IN THE WORLD I'LL TRY SOON
CAN I HAVE SOME DOUBT, I'D LIKE SOME
IT CAN'T BE FAIR, FOR WHAT THE WORLD SHOULD BE
AND I CAN'T CREATE IF I DON'T KNOW WHAT I MEAN

IT SEEMS, THAT NO BODY HELPS
Track Name: I Can't Compete With a World Unlike Me (To Get Ahead of the Game) 1
SOMETIMES THINGS GET VERY BAD
I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY GET SO MAD
BUT WHEN I WALK IN A ROOM
ALL THE FEAR IT CONSUMES
IF I MOVE I WILL FAIL
AND MY PLANS THEY'LL DERAIL

FILTER FROM ME
HATRED, FAKE WITH
INTERACTION
I NEED TRACTION

I WONDER IF I'LL EVER LEARN
IF I'M TOO LONELY FOR THIS ALL TO WORK
WHILE OTHERS, THEY TALK
THE CONVERSE AND NETWORK
BUT I CAN'T COMPETE
WITH A WORLD UNLIKE ME

I CAN'T SEEM TO PLAN OR SEE THINGS THROUGH
I'M DRAWN TO AN EASY LIFE
WHAT IS WORTH MY TIME
IF MY PLANS ARE STUCK TO RAILS
HOW CAN I OVERTAKE?
GET AHEAD OF THE GAME?
Track Name: Another Day it Might be Fine (Take a Bow)
TAKE A BOW
AND FEEL IT
COME AROUND

ANOTHER DAY IT MIGHT BE FINE
BUT TODAY?
ANOTHER TRICK I'D LIKE TO FIND
TO FIX IT
Track Name: Several Completely Unrelated Lyrical Ideas Arbitrarily Stuck Together
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
IS THE SYSTEM DRAGGING YOU DOWN OR DO YOU DESTROY YOURSELF

ATTACK THE FACTS
BRING BACK THE PAST
I JUST DON'T CARE I'M JUST NOT LISTENING
NUR NUR NUR NUR NUR NUR

IN A COMPLETELY UNRELATED NOTE IN A FEW MONTHS I MIGHT KNOW
IF I'VE FOUND OR MADE HAPPINESS BUT IN A FEW MONTHS THAT MIGHT PASS
IT MIGHT PASS
PLEASE DONT PASS
Track Name: I Can't Compete With a World Unlike Me (To Get Ahead of the Game) 2
SOMETIMES THINGS GET VERY BAD
I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY GET SO MAD
BUT WHEN I WALK IN A ROOM
ALL THE FEAR IT CONSUMES
IF I MOVE I WILL FAIL
AND MY PLANS THEY'LL DERAIL

FILTER FROM ME
HATRED, FAKE WITH
INTERACTION
I NEED TRACTION

I WONDER IF I'LL EVER LEARN
IF I'M TOO LONELY FOR THIS ALL TO WORK
WHILE OTHERS, THEY TALK
THE CONVERSE AND NETWORK
BUT I CAN'T COMPETE
WITH A WORLD UNLIKE ME

I CAN'T SEEM TO PLAN OR SEE THINGS THROUGH
I'M DRAWN TO AN EASY LIFE
WHAT IS WORTH MY TIME
IF MY PLANS ARE STUCK TO RAILS
HOW CAN I OVERTAKE?
GET AHEAD OF THE GAME?
Track Name: America 1
TO LIVE AN AMERICAN PRIMITIVE LIFE
COME HOME FROM THE FIELDS AND FROM WORKING THE LAND
PRAY TO GOD TO KEEP MY FAMILY WELL FED
LOOK AROUND THE HORIZON IS MY ONLY FRIEND

IT'S A DREAM

TO LIVE AN AMERICAN SUBURBIAN LIFE
COME HOME SAY HELLO TO THE SUBURBIAN KINDS
WELL CUT LAWNS AND PERFECTLY CONCRETED DRIVES
WE'LL HOST DINNER PARTIES IT'S ALL CIVILISED

IT'S A DREAM

TAKE ME THERE
TAKE ME THERE
IT'S ALL THE SAME
IT'S ALL THE SAME
Track Name: America 2
ONE MORE GUNSHOT AND ANOTHER FOR DEFENCE
JUST POINT A FINGER AND THEY'LL BUILD US A FENCE

IN DISILLUSIONMENT IT'S EASY TO HATE THOSE WITH POWER
BUT WHAT IS A PROTEST VOTE IF WE PUNISH OURSELVES

THOUGH I DON'T BELIEVE THERE'S EVER A RIGHT ANSWER TO FIX THE WORLD
TO VIEW THE WORLD AS JUST YOU IN ISOLATION HARMS THE NATION
Track Name: Effect and Cause 2
I CAN SEE A FLAME
IT MUST BE A MISTAKE
AND TIME WILL FIND A WAY
TO MAKE CLEARER THINGS OPAQUE

IF WHAT YOU SAID MADE SENSE
YOU'D BE REMEMBERED NEXT
TO SAY WHAT'S GOOD AND RIGHT
IS ONLY GONNA CAUSE A FIGHT

FOR LOVE TO FEEL LIKE A LANDSLIDE
I'D LIKE THAT
YOU TREAT ME WITH ANGER IT'S NOT RIGHT
I CAN'T WIN THAT FIGHT

TO LIVE LIKE THERE'S A BOMB
INSIDE MY HEAD READY TO GO OFF
THE FRANTIC THOUGHTS KEEP ME AWAKE
I DO SOMETIMES THINK I'M FAKE

FORGIVE ME PETER AND PAUL
I DON'T WANT IT AT ALL
I'M DOWN AND I NEED YOU NEAR ME
I WANT YOU TO HEAR ME

I'M FROZEN UP WITH FEAR
BUT NOTHING MATTERS I HEAR
THERE'S A LARGE PART OF ME
THAT NO ONE KNOWS OR SEES
Track Name: 25 Route
OH MY
PUT THE NEEDLE ASIDE
PLEASE PASS ME A THREAD
AND I WILL SEW COMPLETE

THE WORLD IS CLAIMING ME
THE WORLD IS FRAMING ME
Track Name: Cat and Mouse
IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
SO I SHOULD HIT THE GROUND RUNNING
SO BREATHE IT IN
DON'T LET IT OUT
IMAGINE FALLING WITHOUT AMOUNT
AND WALK ACROSS THE THRESHOLD OF
A SPLATTERED CANVAS
A CAT AND MOUSE
