back of a barrel wave

A train, alighted, on my word. He's not a criminal. His jaw was tightened, his brow it gave the game away

Out of sight
Out of mind
And they'll die when they're done
Out of sight
Out of mind
and the damages won

I clasp both hands and make the final call, could you teach yourself
to run before you walk

but this
Realisation, raw dedication
False celebrations, kind of contagious.
Calm yourself down on the back of a barrel wave.

You'll never be saved, you'll never be

I will say, you'll follow the wire that traces us back to the storm

A plan, you're frightened, the source, he's not a criminal. His jaw, was tightened, his brow it gave the game away

Out of sight
Out of mind
And they'll die when they're done
Out of sight
Out of mind
and the damages won

I clasp both hand and make the final call. Can you teach yourself
to run before you walk?

but this

Realisation, raw dedication
False celebrations, Kind of contagious.
Calm yourself down on the back of a barrel wave

You'll never be saved, you'll never be

I will say, you'll follow the wire that traces us back to the storm

Is there anybody out there?

And I clasped both hand, make the final call, you can teach yourself to run before you walk

Despite our best efforts, it's what the papers will spin and his pride penned a letter and the glory was his

Suburbia, It spread like butter

Realisation, raw dedication
False celebrations, Kind of contagious
Calm yourself down on the back of a barrel wave

You'll never be saved

I will say, you'll follow the wire that traces us back to the storm

I will say, you'll follow the wire that traces us back to the storm

Come breathe my air
And take it on the chin
You're locked inside
With the whites of my eyes

england breathes

You are so
Typically hardline
That's a credit to
The powder in the wine
Strapped up hardcore

Raising the tone of your voice
That's a credit too
Not for you and I
or for me and you

Archaic questions
It drops into your head like stone
An Education in, that
 

England breathes as it does
In and out & get over it
England breathes as it does
In and out & get over it

It's a stitch in time

It's a skit
Using grainy departmental control
And this is how the practical roll
And this is how the practical roll

I quit
The wire lines this frame
That's a credit too
Not for you and I
Or for me and you

Archaic questions
It drops into your head like stone
An Education in, that
 

England breathes as it does
England breathes as it does
In and out & get over it

It's a stitch in time

Breakers

Rub Sticks, rub sticks for a living
Rough hands, Jobs lost, we'll deliver
Three Sails to the wind then we'll shiver
We are waiting

Now a judge can pull you out
attorney staring blankly inside out
Called up, we're simply losing sight
The kind of thing that keeps you up at night

But we're all
getting bored
and have fallen in to the well
Tossed down as we sit in the dark and a coin tossed down for the good of our health.

Rub Sticks, rub sticks for a living
Rough hands, Jobs lost, we'll deliver
Three Sails to the wind then we'll shiver
We are waiting

Round two with faces baring down
Is this the thing your people were talking about?
Round three, in a momentary fight
The common theme that keeps you up at night

But we're all
getting bored
and have fallen in to the well
Tossed down as we sit in the dark and a coin tossed down for the good of our health

Rub Sticks, rub sticks for a living
Rough hands, Jobs lost, we'll deliver
Three Sails to the wind then we'll shiver
We are waiting

Rub Sticks, rub sticks for a living
Rough hands, Jobs lost, we'll deliver
Three Sails to the wind then we'll shiver
We are waiting

A Classic compilation
an age old combination
A budget alteration

A Classic compilation
an age old combination
budget alteration

Breakers
softly spoken
Hit the bottom
and applied it to us

Rub Sticks, rub sticks for a living
Rough hands, Jobs lost, we'll deliver
Three Sails to the wind then we'll shiver
We are waiting

Rub Sticks, rub sticks for a living
Rough hands, Jobs lost, we'll deliver
Three Sails to the wind then we'll shiver
We are waiting

heavy hearts

Start young
Test your limits to the brink
I'm not a leader but I'll take this one

His only right to think

Draw your horses right in
down my legs and I feel it
It wasn't the cleverest night I'll admit and it's only going to bring

The need to remove
such an awkward task
with statuesque desire
the cold of the blood on their old school uniforms

Cut them out
and drag em down
like lambs upon the wire and cut to the chase with heavy hearts

When violence takes it all away
It's a miracle we made it this far anyway
When troubles steam the windows outside
You know it's time to head home
with heavy hearts

Old bring the thoughts to a head
I'm not a leader but i'll take this one
and hold them in your stead

Draw your vision right in

on your knees you will feel it
It wasn't the deepest form of regret and on your death bed you will sing

The need to remove
such an awkward task
with statuesque desire
the cold of the blood on their old school uniforms

Cut them out
and drag em down
like lambs upon the wire and cut to the chase with heavy hearts

When violence takes it all away
It's a miracle we made it this far anyway
When troubles steam the windows outside
You know it's time to head home
with heavy hearts

When violence takes it all away
It's a miracle we made it this far anyway
When troubles steam the windows outside
You know it's time to head home
with heavy hearts

mother's ruin

We make them in our heads
inflated blurry slides
held up, how we thought we looked inside

A generated light
A Reverend holds his pipe
when freedom finds her, they'll start screaming

Different ways to break your Mother's heart
with that in mind we've made it easy
To alter all the thinking from the start
As Blake once said we're breaking even

Back to work, back to work, we were out in the cold
In our coats with our hands held tightly
You'll return, you'll return here to volley the calls
It's a long way down

Repeat this quietly

A shaft of orange light
casts it into doubt
Fledgling ratings impossible

Calibrating tales
the burning of the bale
Watch the shale fall freely under foot

Different ways to break your Mother's heart
with that in mind we've made it easy
To alter all the thinking from the start
As Blake once said we're breaking even

Back to work, back to work, we were out in the cold
In our coats with our hands held tightly
You'll return, you'll return here to volley the calls
It's a long way down

Repeat this quietly

This light from above
Is nothing more
than the failing light
hanging from the wall

Different ways to break your Mother's heart
with that in mind we've made it easy
To alter all the thinking from the start
As Blake once said we're breaking even

Back to work, back to work, we were out in the cold
In our coats with our hands held tightly
You'll return, you'll return here to volley the calls
It's a long way down

Repeat this quietly

taming of the shrewd

You wanna impress the world
Get a nice wife with a credit score
If I had more time, I'd burn alive
Oh living is so hard.

Thought you impressed the world
You gotta big dog and you carved your arms
Behind every dog there's a violent charm

This island is so typical
My darling generation
Takes the pill and loses faith

We're burning down the bridges
We're turning in the screw
White knuckles follow faster
The taming of the shrewd

This dirt ingrained between my hands and toes

You wanna impress the world?
Become a big fish in a tiny sea
Put a strong wall up infront of me

But what about in 5 years time?

Always embrace a mouldGet a big house on a credit card
Ensuring­ first thing that your kids impressed
The pressure's high, is that me?

Difficult I've thrown my hat in to the ring
Bring back old days of talking

We're burning down the bridges
We're turning in the screw
White knuckles follow faster
The taming of the shrewd

We're burning down the bridges
We're turning in the screw
White knuckles follow faster
The taming of the shrewd

This dirt ingrained between my hands and toes

Standing on the edge of a nowhere
In a failed crusade
With a backpack, stacked up with OUR NATIONAL TRUST
We're selling fool's gold for the rates of good pay
And now we're praying for a medical miracle, medical miracle, medical miracle

Miracle

We're burning down the bridges
We're turning in the screw
White knuckles follow faster
The taming of the shrewd

This dirt ingrained between my hands, ingrained between my hands and toes

We're burning down the bridges
We're turning in the screw
White knuckles follow faster
The taming of the shrewd

This dirt ingrained between my hands and toes

We're burning down the bridges
We're turning in the screw
White knuckles follow faster
The taming of the shrewd

This dirt ingrained between my hands and toes

grace and favours

Now a woman in a car leaves a town & a family
her brake lights fail when she washed away her sanity
Primate in the palm of his grip
spreads like plague on the bridge of a ship

Believe what you had
Leave what you had
leave all the green fields far behind
Forget what you had
and leave what we always challenge first

Pray silence for the rain
light up the dark
sick and tired of looking through these bloodshot eyes

Pray silence for the rain
Light up the dock
sick and tired of looking through these eyes

Now he's everything you ever want and
everything you ever wanted to be

Seeing what you want to believe in
blood pours down from the cracks in the ceiling

Believe what you had
Leave what you had
leave all the green fields far behind
Forget what you had
and leave what we always challenge first

Pray silence for the rain
light up the dark
sick and tired of looking through these bloodshot eyes

Pray silence for the rain
Light up the dock
sick and tired of looking through these eyes

When we got our backs up against the wall we seem a bit taller than before

When we got our backs up against the wall. We seem a bit taller

When we got our backs up against the wall we seem a bit taller than before

When we got our backs up against the wall. We seem a bit taller

Pray silence for the rain
light up the dark
sick and tired of looking through these bloodshot eyes

Pray silence for the rain
light up the dark
sick and tired of looking through these bloodshot eyes

When we got our backs up against the wall we seem a bit taller than before

When we got our backs up against the wall. We seem a bit taller

Evangeline

Roll up, roll up your sleeves
this feels prophetical
Washed down your children wept
roll your sleeves Evangeline

A game of cat and mouse
this feels electrical
Put down your fellow thoughts and roll your sleeves Evangeline

It's man over
It's man over

Twenty three and
not a hope in hell
If you change his course well
that would change his health.

With a b­line, veins tied
under bathroom light
with a physical change in colour
well invest in friends for life

Roll up, roll up your sleeves
this feels prophetical
Washed down your children wept
roll your sleeves Evangeline

A game of cat and mouse
this feels electrical
Put down your fellow thoughts and roll your sleeves Evangeline

Well I sit
on the brink
with a fire
with a cold
and a brace
and desire

Well he's kind of afraid I'm about to
retain the life that I take when I'm most alone.

Let's see from this scripture
it's nothing like the place in the picture
It's more akin the the feet that I dug in the ground when I first stepped foot here

Do you see the face in the fog?
Looks like he's the prince to the frog
Some beast of the Southern Wilds that's coming to feed here

My heart, made of stone
Burn all remains and we'll scatter the ashes below

Roll up, roll up your sleeves
this feels prophetical
Washed down your children wept
roll your sleeves Evangeline

A game of cat and mouse
this feels electrical
Put down your fellow thoughts and roll your sleeves Evangeline

My heart, made of stone
Burn all remains and we'll scatter the ashes below

My house, made of bricks
An Englishman's Castle is built on a sinking ship

must work harder

Must work harder
Must work harder

Daughters
back to your work
back to where the old Country's born beneath the turf

Hold fast
tighten your fists
Forget about long line no blood will thicken this

Because I know, she knows better,
and does it to the letter

And I am the last man standing

It's a modern comic tragedy
It's the only way we
throw your caution to the wind

It's an envy fuelled catastrophe
it's a gale force warning
Throw your caution to the wind

Martyrs
lock up your sons
waiting for the flood to hit, the family feuds to start a bit

Cousins
do as they please
family shaken from the roots, the wind is in the trees

Because I know, she knows better,
and does it to the letter

And I am the last man standing

It's a modern comic tragedy
It's the only way we
throw your caution to the wind

It's an envy fuelled catastrophe
it's a gale force warning
Throw your caution to the wind

Roll over man
I've seen this before
And I've towed myself through the violent reports
As your heels sink deep you'll discover yourself
You'll never close your eyes so tightly

It's a modern comic tragedy
It's the only way we
throw your caution to the wind

It's an envy fuelled catastrophe
it's a gale force warning
Throw your caution to the wind my son

pioneers

Of all the pioneers
you were the finest
we left he dust for the front line attitude

And If you're tired then your old
and you're no good to us
and i've just heard that we died alone

But we're up against it now
against the coal face
staring down

What you'll see is
the worst part of me
in a land of regret
and if it doesn't fit don't wear it.
Don't roll over gently and take it
I'm waxing lyrical that I'll never make it

We are the pioneers
in our own rights
They left the desk for the front line attitude

And the birds on the wire
that dictate the fires
on the streets of the second States

But we're up against it now
against the coal face
staring down
It seems the simple things were so obvious
So obvious, so obvious, so obvious.

What you'll see is
the worst part of me
in a land of regret
and if it doesn't fit don't wear it
Don't roll over gently and take it
I'm waxing lyrical that I'll never make it

What you'll see is
the worst part of me
in a land of regret
and if it doesn't fit don't wear it
Don't roll over gently and take it
I'm waxing lyrical that I'll never make it
