Track Name: Mindscape
The sounds inside my mind
Are crying all the time,
The peace inside my brain,
Interrupted by the pain,
These feelings of unrest
Are uncomfortable at best.

The case for the defence,
Seen through a tinted lens,
The jury are now out,
So to tease your sense of doubt,
The synthesis of guilt,
Sewn together like a quilt.

The sounds inside my mind
Are crying all the time,
The peace inside my brain,
Interrupted by the pain,
These feelings of unrest
Are uncomfortable at best.

(Power)
Track Name: Going Out
Huh!

See the look inside my eye,
The look I’ll give you when I die,
The fear, the bitterness inside,
That grabs you by the throat and says goodbye!

I’m going out and I’m going, I’m going out in style!

See the look, the look of dread,
The kind of look that gets inside your head,
My teeth, my claws, my bite, my scratch,
Looks like in death we’ve met our match!

I’m going out and I’m gonna, I’m gonna get revenge!

See the scars upon my brow,
Lessons learnt before I knew how,
Watch me grit my yellowed teeth
In a world watched with beggar’s belief!

I’m going out and you’re gonna, you’re gonna need relief!

G-g-g-g-g-g-going out in style,
A butchered, battered, broken audiophile,
Make you wince and make you shout,
I’m taking the world on as I’m going out!
G-g-g-g-g-g-going out in style,
A butchered, battered, broken audiophile,
Make you wince and make you shout,
I’m taking the world on as I’m going out!

I’m going out and I’m going out in style!

I’m going out!

Track Name: Goddess
That was the longest trip
That the sea could control,
It’s not waving anymore,
Just a foot inland
Was enough to burn the sand,
Ashes were the plants.

Everything is dry and cold
Since the goddess walked through its roots,
An endless trip around the world,
Just a single kiss from her can change my blood
And leave me blended with the ground.

Ooh, oh,
Ooh, yeah.

There is no more beauty
Than the moment she smiles,
That’s what kills everyone,
Even stones fall in her game,
So do I again.

Yeah,
Everything is dry and cold
Since the goddess walked through its roots,
An endless trip around the world,
Just a single kiss from her can change my blood
And leave me blended with the ground.

Ooh, oh,
But she’s losing control,
Ooh, yeah,
But she’s losing control,
Ooh, oh,
But she’s losing control
Ooh,
But she’s losing control,
But she’s losing control…

(Donaire)
Track Name: City Dreams
In the big ol’ city
Cars pass in the street
And people skirt round street corners
To find their place to meet.

In the grand ol’ city
Public transport hums,
Red to amber to green
Unless you jump the gun.

City dreams,
So it seems,
Are built on healthy friendships,
Chance encounters,
Up and downturns
But coming back to you,
City dreams,
So it seems,
Will stay with you forever,
Evening sunsets
And starry nights,
Are better spent with you.

In the city centre,
City foxes slink,
In between the noises,
They find a space to think.

In the misty metropolis,
The hops fills the air,
Getting drunk with the factories
Until it’s time to pay your taxi fare.

City dreams,
So it seems,
Are built on healthy friendships,
Chance encounters,
Up and downturns
But coming back to you,
City dreams,
So it seems,
Will stay with you forever,
Evening sunsets
And starry nights,
Are better spent with you.

Ooh,
The sound of the city
Rings in my ears,
Abetting my fears,
Ooh, I need someone to share it with,
Someone like you,
Can you stay true?

City dreams,
So it seems,
Are built on healthy friendships,
Chance encounters,
Up and downturns
But coming back to you,
City dreams,
So it seems,
Will stay with you forever,
Evening sunsets
And starry nights,
Are better spent with you.

With you,
With you,
With you,
With you…

Track Name: Walking on Water
It’s in her hair
And in her smile,
Does she know I care?
Can she spare a while?

The way she walks,
The way she cocks her head,
The way she smiles when she talks,
The way she goes on ahead.

You know I want you baby,
You know it’s in my eyes.

But you’re walking on water,
You’re baptising the crowd.

I can’t pull away
From her magnetism,
She’s leading me astray
Against all my wisdom.

The way I stare,
The way I crumble at her sight,
The way I truly care,
The way she brings me delight.

You know I want you baby,
You know it’s in my eyes.

But you’re walking on water,
You’re baptising the crowd.

I let her go
To show my love,
Life continued to flow,
Flew its path like a dove.

The way things go,
Take you by surprise,
Cavernous depths of low
And heavenly pitched highs.

You know I had you baby,
You know I said goodbye.

Now I’m walking through water,
I’m baptising my crown,
Now I’m walking through water,
I’m baptising my crown.

(Power)
Track Name: Sapphire Skies
Looking up at sapphire skies,
Trying to derive
The meaning of this life,
My place in space and time.

Trying to relate,
My actions and my fate,
Can I change? Is it too late?
To rid my soul of hate.

Keep a cool temperament,
The way you’re truly meant,
So show your good intent,
Your voice is heaven sent.

Trying to be composed,
When being pigeon-holed,
Can I change my clothes
And interrupt the flow?

Trying to devise
A plan to shame the lies,
A world without disguise,
Our time is sure to rise.

Keep a cool temperament,
The way you’re truly meant,
So show your good intent,
Your voice is heaven,
Your voice is heaven sent.

Sapphire skies, sapphire skies,
Time to shame, to shame the lies,
Temperament, temperament,
Don’t you know your voice is heaven sent?
Sapphire skies, sapphire skies,
Time to shame, to shame the lies,
Temperament, temperament,
Don’t you know your voice is heaven sent?

Keep a cool temperament,
The way you’re truly meant,
So show your good intent,
Your voice is heaven,
Your voice is heaven,
Your voice is heaven sent.

(Power)
