Track Name: Tracks
Come on and stop that train
You're running away from it again
You're running to where, I don't know
You're running so far away from home

Come on now, stop now, please
You're bringing me down to my knees
You're hurting the ones you love most
I know it's hard, I know
I know, I know, I know

And it's all I know
But it feels like home
And it's all you need
Cos it feels like
All I know
But it feels like home
And it's all you need
Cos it feels like

Come on now stop now, please
You're bringing me down to my knees
You're hurting the ones you love most
I know it's hard, I know
I know, I know, I know

And it's all I know
But it feels like home
And it's all you need
Cos it feels like
All I know
But it feels like home
And it's all you need
Cos it feels like...
Track Name: Lost
Oh, it looks like you were right before
We shouldn’t have come this way, I know
Lost, maybe, but we will find our way
Home, I guess that we can only pray

(Ooh, Ooh)
Oh, we’re lost
(Ooh, Ooh)
Oh, we’re lost

Oh, it’s quiet in the dead of night
Keep safe, making sure you hold on tight
Somehow clear in the absent light
Oh, it’s quiet in the dead of night

(Ooh, Ooh)
Oh, we’re lost
(Ooh, Ooh)
Oh, we’re lost

(Ooh, Ooh)
(Ooh, Ooh)
Oh, we’re lost
(Ooh, Ooh)
Count the cost
Of the mistakes
That we have made
(Ooh, Ooh)
Oh, we’re lost
Track Name: Set In Stone
No chance the brakes are failing
The boat will not capsize
Everything has been checked and checked again
In the time that it provides

You say there is method in your ways
And you won’t quite see the best of me today

No chance of fault lines moving
Tectonic plates are still
What carries us we’re carrying in turn
Burn the mark until

You say there is method in your ways
And you won’t quite see the best of me today

When things are set in stone
You plan it all again
What will happen, it will happen anyway
What will happen, it will happen anyway
There’s no need to be afraid

You say there is method in your ways
And you won’t quite see the best of me today

When things are set in stone
You plan it all again
What will happen, it will happen anyway
What will happen, it will happen anyway
There’s no need to be afraid
Track Name: Amber
There was amber in the dusty earth
You revealed it
Found poetry in meaning there
It was gleaming
And how much, if I count it up
Did I really need?

Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
How many more times
I must be getting old
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
And I think I know the place
But I don’t wanna go

A welcome contribution made
A reminder
That sometimes it is hard to find
But it’s worth it
If there’s amber, we have to claw it out
Cos we need it

Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
How many more times
I must be getting old
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
And I think I know the place
But I don’t wanna go

Cos this is not the night
And this is not the night

Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
How many more times
I must be getting old
Well, you think you know the feeling
But you really don’t
And I think I know the place
But I don’t wanna go

Is there time enough
To call it off?
Is there time enough
To call it off?
Is there time enough
To call it off?

Cos this is not the night
And this is not the night
Track Name: Fall
You push me down
Right to the ground
I fall
You push me down
To the ground

You push me down
Right to the ground
I fall
You push me down
To the ground
Track Name: Coda
Pick up the pieces and go...
Track Name: Graves
I'm sleeping around in a Ghost Town
I'm moving about for the hell of it
Who do you love in a Ghost Town?
Where some of us slip away
And some of us don't

I'm fucking about in a Ghost Town
I'm moving around for the sake of it
Who can you love in a Ghost Town?
Where some of us rise again
And some of us don't

Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away

Settling down in a Ghost Town
I'm digging holes for the little ones
Who needs more than a Ghost Town?
Where some of us live asleep
And some of us don't

Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away

Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
Track Name: Heading South
Frost on the window
Dead are the leaves
Drunk in the afternoon
And you’ve been so distant
Incredibly cold
But maybe it’s just the weather

Why don't we go where the winters are warm?
Where the sun splits right through you
Why don't we go where the winters are warm?
Let's go down south together

Nothing on TV
Eyes already dead
Planning our Great Escape
And you’ve been so distant
Incredibly cold
But maybe it’s just the weather

Why don't we go where the winters are warm?
Where the sun splits right through you
Why don't we go where the winters are warm?
Let's go down south together
Let's go down south together

If I sleep tonight, don’t wake me up
If I dream tonight, don’t wake me up…
