Track Name: Say It Again
I ain't going nowhere
I let silence fill the air
Looking out my window
It's almost better nothing's there

You were saying something
Say it again now
I’d hate for you to hold back now
On what you held for all these years

Maybe it's your eyes
Telling me somehow
Was it the weight of all the time
Gone by that finally brought you here

I ain't going nowhere
But I got no time to spare
Every bits been taken
And I know you'd never share

You were saying something
Say it again now
I’d hate for you to hold back now
On what you held for all these years

Maybe it's your eyes
Telling me somehow
Was it the weight of all the time
Gone by that finally brought you here

When the lantern lights are broken
And all the cards are down
When lesser words are spoken
They hardly make a sound

You were saying something
Say it again now
I’d hate for you to hold back now
On what you held for all these years

Maybe it's your eyes
Telling me somehow
Was it the weight of all the time
Gone by that finally brought you here
Track Name: The Fix
I see green lights over Young Street
She's making promises to me
I know they got me here in no time
Still I'm so far from the sea

Sometimes I think of going back there
But I know I'm not going anywhere

Here it comes, the fix is in
Thought I'd leave with more than this
Here it comes, the fix is in
Thought I'd leave with more than this

Where are you? We need you here

Said we thought we made that clear
The only time that you let yourself down
Is when you stop tearing up this town

Sometimes I think of going back there
But I know I'm not going anywhere

Here it comes, the fix is in
I thought I'd leave with more than this
Here it comes, the fix is in
Thought I'd leave with more than this

Sometimes I think of going back there
But I know I'm not going anywhere

Here it comes, the fix is in
I thought I'd leave with more than this
Here it comes, the fix is in
Thought I'd leave with more than this
Track Name: Search & Destroy
She's gone, I know, this thing was overrated
We're falling down but not for each other
I feel you might have gone and overstated us
No room to breathe, we can't hold on forever

Build it to blow it up
Assemble to disregard
We all play our part
Search and destroy (repeat X2)

She's young, I'm fine to go and play the field again
The rules have changed, the objectives the same
She's right, I'm wrong, at least that's where she's coming from
Are we to blame if this was always our fate

Build it to blow it up
Assemble to disregard
We all play our part
Search and destroy (repeat X2)

We drift on out to sea
Look back in disbelief
Ahead all blue and green
For now, it's calm, complete

Build it to blow it up
Assemble to disregard
We all play our part
Search and destroy (repeat X2)
Track Name: Heavy Scars
I often wish I'd lived a while ago
Five hundred years before and yet it's almost like I'm no longer alone

Flying machines are more than where you go
The sum of who you are adds up to so much more than only what you know

What you feel, you'll see
With words you couldn't speak

All their heavy scars
Brought you where you are
All their brightest stars
Brought you where you are

City signs and borderlines have changed
The cable car will go so far but the questions in our heads are still the same

What you feel, you'll see
With words you couldn't speak

All their heavy scars
Brought you where you are
All their brightest stars
Brought you where you are

Stop watch stops time, you're a modern man
But you can't stop the ceiling fan
Their faces coming into view
Do you think they're looking back at you?

What you feel, you'll see

All their heavy scars
Brought you where you are
All their brightest stars
Brought you where you are

All their heavy scars
Brought you where you are
All their brightest stars
Brought you where you are
Track Name: One More Mile
Well I meant what I said
Even though you did pirouettes
Through my head

Even though I said no
My body says different
When I'm in your bed

All my love
Is like a pearl
More than money oh honey
You can't buy the world

If I didn't make you cry
You'd never smile
Wait another day the sun will rise this time

I can't promise nothing easy
Thats not my style
Walk with me for one more mile

Well I meant what I said
Even though you did pirouettes
Through my head

If you're mine
In five years time
Don't you worry I'll hurry
With red red wine

If I didn't make you cry
You'd never smile
Wait another day the sun will rise this time

I can't promise nothing easy
Thats not my style
Walk with me for one more mile

Let me live before I die
Let the memory of your face
Keep me still where I lie

If I didn't make you cry
You'd never smile
Wait another day the sun will rise this time

I can't promise nothing easy
Thats not my style
Walk with me for one more mile (repeated)
Track Name: Not Going Away
Like the wind on your cheek
You turn your head down
And away from me
He's the sun in the east
'Cause he makes you smile
A little at least

One day you'll see the sun going down
But here I will stay
I'm not going away (I'm not going) (X4)

It's hard to get any peace
With two hungry wolves
Here for a fight or feast
I thought you knew better than this
Or better than us
But there's just no way

One day you'll see the sun going down
But here I will stay
I'm not going away (I'm not going) (X4)

I'm fighting for control
But the whole idea
Is getting kind of old
I hide when I catch your eye
Then you may forget
Everything you know

One day you'll see the sun going down
But here I will stay
I'm not going away (I'm not going) (X4)
Track Name: She Gets Away With It
Green light, fifth gear, top down
Night time, shades on, cigarette
Smokescreen, oh she's going for it
Bare feet, I feel ordinary

Can't put out her fire
But damn, she won't stop lighting them
Brakes on, its a long way down if we fall

She gets away with it
She don't take nothing serious
She keeps me animated
I'm just trying to stay with her

Ten more miles, road tired
But that's what she's admired
I'm asking "are you happy yet?"
And not one answer's scaring me

Can't put out her fire
But damn, she won't stop lighting them
Brakes on, its a long way down if we fall

She gets away with it
She don't take nothing serious
She keeps me animated
I'm just trying to stay with her

I'm getting a million
I'm getting a million maybes
Another hour
Another hour a day please
I know she waits
I know she waits for no one
She's so much better
Cause she's so much better on the run

She gets away with it (X4)

When you leave I'm so unsettled
That I lock myself away
Now the walls have all been levelled
I wanna see your face today
Track Name: Ares
I've got a real funny feeling that we've been here before
Where you couldn't even tell me what you're fighting for
I've got a real strong sense now it's said and done
I think you must have given fire to the Amazons

Tell me what you're best friends with Agony for
I guess nobody knew you better than the child of war
Tell me you'll learn to love, enjoy the wine that you pour
Yeah, we can turn it around and it'll suit you more

Ooo, you never back me up
Ooo, you're gonna sell me out
Ooo, you're gonna throw me under
Ooo, how can you look at me now?

Let your sister's spoils be your gravity, son
Before you fought the fight, you see the winning was won
Doing all the doing just to be outdone,
Yeah they were playing for keeps and you were playing for fun

Ooo, you never back me up
Ooo, you're gonna sell me out
Ooo, you're gonna throw me under
Ooo, how can you look at me now?

Tell me how you wanna spend the rest of your days
Will anybody even remember your name?

Ooo, you never back me up
Ooo, you're gonna sell me out
Ooo, you're gonna throw me under
Ooo, how can you look at me now?
Track Name: Oh Well (feat. Jerrica Santos)
Easy now, has this been going too fast or too long
I wonder if you wonder why when I’m with you nothing’s wrong
Like diamonds when the sunset hits you get a little bit of light below the pitch black
Attack me baby I can stitch it up back on my feet 'cause when I come at you I'm hard to beat
But I keep coming back for more
If I change

Into something that you haven't seen before
If the heat and a whisper in your ear became a little something more
Your shy little smile can resist me for a while but you know damn well
All you wanted was an "oh well”

Easy now, boy you’ve been coming on too strong
You think you’re getting somewhere, I'm just playing along
Racing, chasing and you’re starting a war
It makes you so much less when you’re wanting more
You're wanting more
If I change

Into something that you haven't seen before
If the heat and a whisper in your ear became a little something more
Your shy little smile can resist me for a while but you know damn well
All you wanted was an "oh well”

Look back now to when you ran so fast and so far
Why are you showing me your invisible scars
Like diamonds when the sunset hits, you get a bit of light below the pitch
black
Attack me baby I can stitch it up back on my feet because when I come at you I'm hard to beat
But I keep coming back for more
If I change

Into something that you haven't seen before
If the summer heat and a whisper in your ear became a little somethin more
Your shy little smile
Can resist me for a while but you know damn well
If I change

Into something you haven't seen
before
If the heat and a whisper in your ear became a little something more
Your shy little smile can resist me for a while but you know damn well
All you wanted was an "oh well"
