Track Name: Beauty No. 3
In her sleeping years, deeply slung within a hammock made of skin
She opened her caverns to the hunger of the lost and their kin
They fed on her vanity until soon they both became content
Men cut holes in her body but she was so confident

With your eyes and sorcery, come Beauty no. 3,
Can't you see the tragedy as your dream begins to leave

As a traveller began to gore upon her she looked deep into the ground
Momentary floods of thought unstyled and mystified rained down
On to her pretty head and she began to feel afraid
When she woke she found that her beauty had decayed

And no-one goes close to her den, they wait for the moment when
She is dreaming of her men, in case she accuses them

She mourns the existence of time, while though she's empty all she feels is tense
And so she passes her time dreaming for the strength of children

With your beauty you deceived, Come simple no. 3,
Can't you see the tragedy as you lose your only dream
I loved you for yourself, never needed anything else
Oh! Beauty #3

She could be anything you wanted her to be
Beautiful blank, Beauty no. 3
Track Name: Cotton Dress
Sprawled out over the windfall of this the bloated browning month
Apple bruises on my thighs and the flush from your yawning smile

Fasten your teeth on my soul and we shall roll and flow for ever more

You in your cotton dress, you in your innocence
Life screams its fury from your eyes, all jaded and alive

My feet are in the water waiting for the tide to come
The whisper in the corner does its best to make me numb
My ear to your cage, your pulse in my hand
Eyeing up the child, fingering the dead,
Swallowing your flow, your teeth on my neck,
Coil me full of hate and bend me out of shape

Death is just down the hallway
When I fall I hear him ask
How many rooms have you entered?
How many rooms have you passed?
How much darker does it get?
Track Name: Apathy
In the slowest of ways,
My head thick with blood,
I can just about strain to step down,
The morning has nearly come

But I don't want to be here where nothing clicks
So I just push my head under again

There are so many ways,
There are so many ways,
To dig your own grave
And take root where you feel you're safe
And waste away

I'm set deep in my ways
Apathy come smile on me now
Come smile on me

Just to shake me up sometimes I scream at nothing in particular
And I will make this body bleed
Track Name: Country Freaks
I'm a country freak unlike yourself
I was born in a hole much deeper than this
Deep in the woods I hid myself
Deep in the woods I found a path

Entered into earth's domain
Nature's secrets there to claim
Found life as strange as my own frame
Dug a hole where I'll remain

Where the seasons kiss and cry upon
I will wait for your simple fears to have gone
Deep in my head my life goes on
Deep in my head a path will form

I am not what I seem, within my shape I can dream
And I can breathe
I'm a country freak

And I'll always be alone;
The poorest mix of blood and bone
Track Name: Worm Out
Worm out little brother for I know you can
You got bubbles in your mouth
It gets so dark in here that I can't breathe
Your gums are all worn down
Your gums are all worn down

I slept to find dirty water in my mouth where I lay,
My dream hung cold against my skin
In my head I was bagged and I was dead
My hex had chased me down
Nailed my palms into the ground

Worm out

Found myself all naked and alone
I dug to touch my mother's bones
Set in waste, I bore a hole upon my face
My thumbs are all worn down
My thumbs are all worn down
Track Name: Jesus Spaceman
I was a traveller of sorts
Left you puzzles on your shores
Been to Roswell, been to Mars,
Got a home on the ocean floor,
Got a home among the stars

I'm jumping through your waves
Setting down again so I can elevate you

Got your Gods and spacemen
Settled on the ground
When we wake the sleepers
You'll never hear the sound
Got some in the water
Got some in the sand
Got some in the water
Got some in the sand

We flew over circles and oceans singing while we sped
I glimpsed the towers of Atlantis, then I lost my head,
And I'm singing where I fell
I'm still singing where I fell
Track Name: Song for Autumn
This a song from beneath the ground
I only echo October's sound,
Belly-kissed into some half-life,
Standing naked to be crucified

On tempered plains we speak in flames,
Questions ripping against the grain
Children scream at the already-framed
We are too restless to shoulder the blame

I don't mean to tie you down
I just don't know where it's coming from
This emptiness leads to craving

My autumn, no-one alive could touch her wisdom
Her glint was jewelled and fired in heaven's pool
My precious cousin, my twin, my second skin,
The only thing I ever fought to win

Don't suffocate what you want to protect
She'll rise for air and then you'll start her descent
Far from the garden you built to impress
She is the angel your friends will undress
Track Name: Hollowed
Can't shake the age that's upon me, cut my arm, count the rings
Darkness follows behind me, blurs my past, pulls me in

And I don't know where I'm going
I don't know where I've been

Seven years near the wish stone,
Lay you down, take your dress,
Clumsy-fingered I fall down,
Sit agape at your sex

But I'm too young to acknowledge
I am too young to confess

It's a fine line I climb every time you try to steer
And I've lost my distance and it's left me here

Another day in the dwelling
Winter seeps into my bones
Let it pass into a headache
Beat the walls, beat the ground
Track Name: Shifting
I could jump these fields in my seven- league boots
Walk trails with shades and ghosts
Blaze tracks in my devil's shoes
Crawl invisibly across your roof.
I could just about fit into every hole
Where I wouldn't be seen
I could melt into the trees
And race their juices right out to their leaves

In a dream I was transformed,
Left my bones outside the door

I could be furred or feathered or shelled or fleeced
I could be any man or every beast,
Rolling with the breeze.
I could be a soothsayer, a spirit-raiser,
I could take to the air,
I could take to the sea,
Without lungs or limbs to hold me here
I'd be a keeper with every key.

Everyday I'm shifting further from myself
I feel the pull, I start to soar, my skin is shed
Lay me down and I'll spiral through my head
Everyday, I feel a little strange.

Smoked a hole in my lungs and I've started to bleed
Got boots and gloves made out of meat,
And I can feel the water
I can feel the water swill inside me.
Track Name: Sleepyhead
Wake to the stomach weight and dead tongue of the night before,
Friend in friend, loveless and confused,
Emptying the scrotum into a blue, blue Sunday
Silence eats the head
Oh, I wish I could remain in our time,
Time, time ensnares the mind
Where are you, sleepyhead?

How your light shines on
Through which is born your only son
I am that one, or so they say
Sleepyhead, don’t ever wake

Poets and lunatics rise to break beneath a kiss
Chewing the bones of sleeping dreams,
Chasing ghosts with buzzing heads,
Heads shatter within our space
Time is a painful stretch into this
Where we're all crazed with thirst
Are you a vulture or a victim?

I do not exist at all
I am the spirit of this song
I breathe only when I'm sprung into this your only song
Track Name: La Luna
The children's moon spins over blue
And we are set in tune
Outer space moves within range in lazy June
We fill our mouths with anything
And fly here

Move to the sounds they're sending down from far away

Look to the skies, they're coming down
Soak the world in fantasy
My knees are cut, my legs are brown
Pull the liquid out from me
Sea to cloud, moon to ground

Under the silver path where angels fall
For all of my seven years
I am so small
Track Name: Epitaph
Meet me in the night by riverside,
Where I'll be juggling with my mind
Whether to choose, whether to lose,
Just me and my faithful friend
We'll act on 'til the end

We are learners until we drop
Keep me alive
Plug me in to the station, radio waves fill my room,
With my ear to the ground I can feel every sound and vibration

One place gleams within the seal of younger eyes
In the earth of Cairndow is where I shall lie

Take me to your garden, deep in your Eden,
Lay me in the hollow where I was born
My faithful friend, my only friend
I'll always want you until the end

One place gleams within the seal of younger eyes
In the earth of Cairndow is where I shall lie

Keep me alive
Track Name: Shifting (EP version)
I could jump these fields in my seven- league boots
Walk trails with shades and ghosts
Blaze tracks in my devil's shoes
Crawl invisibly across your roof.
I could just about fit into every hole
Where I wouldn't be seen
I could melt into the trees
And race their juices right out to their leaves

In a dream I was transformed,
Left my bones outside the door

I could be furred or feathered or shelled or fleeced
I could be any man or every beast,
Rolling with the breeze.
I could be a soothsayer, a spirit-raiser,
I could take to the air,
I could take to the sea,
Without lungs or limbs to hold me here
I'd be a keeper with every key.

Everyday I'm shifting further from myself
I feel the pull, I start to soar, my skin is shed
Lay me down and I'll spiral through my head
Everyday, I feel a little strange.

Smoked a hole in my lungs and I've started to bleed
Got boots and gloves made out of meat,
And I can feel the water
I can feel the water swill inside me.
Track Name: Christina
Deep in my waking hours comes a force
Whose violence breaks each bank I try to build there
Her taste fills my mouth with clumsy words
Sometimes I just want to cry when our precious seconds unwind
Then I feel it begin to slide
Her soul breathes life into these old bones

Christina, Christina,
Race me to the mountains where we can grow old

I just don't know what to say,
My words will cheapen what we create
And I ignite in our embrace
You steal all the darkness from my eyes
So lay me down to sleep, let me chase down the safest dream
Our love will always be the place that all my old ghosts cannot reach

We are children sadly growing old,
Thrown from places now turned cold
With words as battered as their source
Harness me to use their voice
Track Name: Cotton Dress (EP version)
Sprawled out over the windfall of this the bloated browning month
Apple bruises on my thighs and the flush from your yawning smile

Fasten your teeth on my soul and we shall roll and flow for ever more

You in your cotton dress, you in your innocence
Life screams its fury from your eyes, all jaded and alive

My feet are in the water waiting for the tide to come
The whisper in the corner does its best to make me numb
My ear to your cage, your pulse in my hand
Eyeing up the child, fingering the dead,
Swallowing your flow, your teeth on my neck,
Coil me full of hate and bend me out of shape

Death is just down the hallway
When I fall I hear him ask
How many rooms have you entered?
How many rooms have you passed?
How much darker does it get?
