There's an angel by your side They hold you when you cry Lay beside you til the tears have died There's an angel here tonight Leave your conscience at the door Turn away that ghostly paramour Cast it free and let it fall To never be recalled You were never meant to be all by yourself Holding on to ghosts and dreams Of some one / else You were never meant to be a love who, Lover who's alone Your pain still ebbs and flows Cut adrift in ocean undertows In the chasms of the night Then released into blazing light There's an angel by your side They hold you when you cry Lay beside you til the tears have died There's an angel here tonight You were never meant to be all by yourself Holding on to ghosts and dreams Of some one / else You were never meant to be a love who, Lover who's alone

Night Planes 04:27
I pretend the night planes Are slow moving shooting stars And I pretend the night planes Are comets from afar Whispering through, through the night Heading towards the light Night planes, oh night planes Take me away Night planes, oh night planes Take me away Flying on the night planes Oppressors are far below Gliding over cities And places I'll never know Heading to new, new domains Circumvent all the pain Night planes, oh night planes Take me away Night planes, oh night planes Take me away As long as I raise my eyes upwards To search among the stars Keeping fingal alive With hope in the moonlight Night planes, oh night planes Take me away Night planes, oh night planes Take me away

Insomnia 03:39
Remember the ghosts Laying right here Seeing shapes in the dark Held captive by inky fields Where once I was safe Feeling you close Frozen in time Last evening a dream The morning so far Through tunnels that scream When once I was safe Hearing you close Insomnia Praying for light To break the night Insomnia Praying for light To break up the fight I know it will come And exhausted I'll fall Into deepest slumber Where echoes recall When once I was safe Feeling you close The monsters arrive And swallow me whole Pulling me into their deep Where fears, won't let go Can't find my place Where once I was safe Insomnia Praying for light To break the night Insomnia Praying for light To break up the fight

His heart Is a complicated vessel Pumping strange blood through his veins Her love And loyalty got broken Swallowed and regurgitated pain When she told him of the butterflies and diamond skulls so bold His scorn and derision left her cold The compensation that his ego drew Made her realise, made her blue Mother, all that glitters is not gold Mother, all that glitters is not gold Three years Since her world began to crumble An abandoned orphan in the sun It's been 2 years Since she saw his true colours Like dollar signs on fruit machines undone When she told him of the butterflies he made a mockery Pouring scorn and derision on where he’d like to be The compensation that his ego drew Made her realise, made her blue…. Mother, all that glitters is not gold Mother, all that glitters is not gold He took away the things he loved And all the things he never sold And he took his cold plaster of paris heart Dipped and in sparkles rolled Dipped and in sparkles rolled Mother, all that glitters is not gold Mother, all that glitters is not gold

I left you thirteen years ago You were mad, you were old I thought I’d never see you again I moved around, I finally found A love agreed, a love for me But here you are like some comedian I’ll never get away from you I’ll never get away from you Now you’re here, it’s even worse Some karmic curse I don’t deserve What did I do to manifest this sore Your teeth are done, you’ve lost your home You cry and say you’re all alone Your misery is haunting me once more I’ll never get away from you I’ll never get away from you

You have the option To hear the right voice That schitzophrenic running Stream of consciousness The dangeville choice The lust and the yearning That darker noise The urge to destroy all Self sabotage To fill that void It’s when you’re undecided And veering on the edge It creeps up from behind To catch you unaware You’re in Dangeville, Dangeville Try to control your darkest desires Harness your good free will You’re in Dangeville, Dangeville But it’s so controlling Exciting too Intoxicating powerful The darker side That lives within you Pushing you forward To do the wrong thing Viciously steering you away from good To burn your wings It’s when you’re undecided And veering on the edge It creeps up from behind To catch you unaware You’re in Dangeville, Dangeville Try to control your darkest desires Harness your good free will You’re in Dangeville, Dangeville Forget about about your worries man And come on over here Have a drink and have some drugs and have another pill What the hell, oh go on then and is she underage? Live life in the moment Isn’t that what they all say? You’re in Dangeville, Dangeville Try to control your darkest desires Harness your good free will You’re in Dangeville, Dangeville You’re in Dangeville You’re in Dangeville

Breathe 03:05
A second’s an hour An hour’s a lifetime away from you Resisting the power it Forces us closer to see this through See the men Chasing a love condemned Hiding in the shadows Staying out of sight and trying to breathe Breathe, breathe Too many favours The sweat and the labour to get this far There’s no room for failure now We’ve rehearsed and we’ve played it out Just let it out, let it out See the men Chasing a love condemned Hiding in the shadows Staying out of sight and trying to breathe Breathe, breathe Oh won’t you breathe, won’t you breathe

That Night 05:02
Night, it's the middle of the night I still see the dark stars shine In the middle of my mind Can they feel the energy That runs through me When they're asleep Can they taste that sense of freedom Start to seep out Breaking free When all the lights are down And no-one is around The ritual begins The sermon of my sins To wash away the girl that was before Trying to escape the love we didn't make That night Pushing back the hate that terrible mistake Of mine Life, you can fold or you can fight The blows it deals you can decide To be defeated or to rise Can they feel the energy That runs through me relentlessly Can they hear the silent screaming Rising up inside of me Oh the freedom it brings This magic this water Cleansing out and within Trying to wash away the pain Trying to wash away the stain

This Mercy 04:31
Watch over me Watch as I sleep This mercy will take time my love This mercy will take time Leniency it Doesn't come easily This mercy will take kindness my love This mercy will take time Fires may start And plates they may smash But who picks up the pieces And who sweeps up the ash Proving to me I'm all you need This mercy could be yours my love This mercy could be yours Fires may start And plates they may smash But who picks up the pieces And who sweeps up the ash Don't be afraid To say you're sorry Don't be afraid To lay your fears at my feet The dreams that we had The dreams that turned bad This mercy will take time my love This mercy will take time

People say I'm the life of the party Cause I tell a joke or two Although I might be laughing loud and hearty Deep inside I'm blue So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile looks out of place If you look closer it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears I need you, need you Since you left me if you see me with another boy Seeming like I'm having fun Although he may be cute He's just a substitute Because you're the permanent one So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile looks out of place Look a little bit closer it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears I need you, need you Outside I'm masquerading Inside my hope is fading Just a clown Since you put me down My smile is my make up I wear since my break up with you So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile looks out of place Look a bit closer, it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears

Forest Fires 04:07
I see it all as yesterday Clear like polished glass Wish we could've made it last Blades of sunlight through the trees Shining down the creek See those dimples in your cheeks The forest fires keep burning red and gold Hearing choppers in the breeze Your saying, don't drop the juice baby This is what I'll think of when I'm old I'm dancing and I'm free Running through the leaves The birds flew up and flew away Trying to escape Swooping through the haze In two fell swoops to mark the day Innocence a joke All gone up in smoke The forest fires keep burning red and gold Hearing choppers in the breeze I’m saying, don’t cross the bridge baby This is what I'll think of when I'm old I'm dancing and I'm free Running through the leaves When the forest fires were gold
