Track Name: Tracks
(Verse One)
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

(Verse Two)
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

(Chorus)
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...

(Repeat Verse Two)

(Repeat Chorus Twice)
Track Name: Lost
(Verse One)
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

(Chorus)
(Oooooh, Oooooh)
Oh, we’re lost
(Oooooh, Oooooh)
Oh, we’re lost

(Verse Two)
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

(Repeat Chorus)

(Instrumental)

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

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

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

(Repeat Bridge)

(Chorus)
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

(Instrumental)

(Repeat Bridge & Chorus)
Track Name: Amber
(Verse One)
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?

(Chorus)
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

(Verse Two)
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

(Repeat Chorus)

(Instrumental)

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

(Repeat Chorus)

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
(Verse)
You push me down
Right to the ground
I fall
You push me down
To the ground...
Track Name: Coda
(Chorus)
Pick up the pieces and go...
Track Name: Graves
(Verse One)
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

(Verse Two)
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

(Chorus)
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away
Tell me a story
The story of a man who got away

(Verse Three)
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

(Repeat Chorus)

(Instrumental)

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Heading South
(Verse One)
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

(Chorus)
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

(Verse Two)
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

(Repeat Chorus)

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