1. BREACH OF THE PEACE Stuck on your outskirts, nowhere to go Put your head in the clouds because you know you love this weather Time to remember somewhere she said Through the lights and the rain - well you know it could get better Disseminate the untold story From the years laid out before me Wherever you go there's no escape 'Til something inside begins to break Whatever you do you can't relax Virtuous lies spouted as facts The things that you loved declared debased So they could be knocked down and replaced Whatever you say there's no release Welcome to a new breach of the peace North, South or West you cover your tracks Know the old days are gone, oh but you won't forget them Sing just one more song for another time Baby they changed you, oh, but we all let them Every inch of land is holy water The obese felines give no quarter Wherever you go there's no escape... The modern lights they look so pretty In your banal identikit city Expel the culture, love and drama Enjoy the vacuous panorama Wherever you go there's no escape...

2. DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH Always trying to kick back at me A resonant sun on a tempestuous sea Always dying to trip up the person you wanted to be Paralysed on the rocks I felt the shingle run below me A cache of fumes and royally wrecked, the gift of life bestowed me... Climb away, climb away, climb away Sweat it out, fade it away Climb away, climb away, climb away Sweat it out, fade it away Always trying to shift the walls round Some kind of feng-shui for the dead underground Always dying to rip up that person demonstrably Paralysed on the rocks I felt the shingle run below me A cache of fumes and royally wrecked, the gift of life bestowed me... Climb away...

3. DOORMATS OF THE WORLD UNITE! Come together, all and sundry Oh my lover, she went off me I know her fears, but she knows my weaknesses I don't push against the whirlpool Just kinda freewheel on this cycle Christ won't you let me concentrate on something... Doormats of the world unite! Keep it simple, not too tight All that recourse running down, my friends on Facebook rally round I don't believe in digging deep, prefer to dream about next week I live my life in such denial, it's worth it just to see her smile I slide along my sliding scale That tells me who you are I grip the sheets and grit my teeth The failure's quite bizarre The flags are flying from the roof I'm terrified of my own truth I dig a hole and bury all the messages my brain received last night Trial and trauma, sparse melody So familiar, always haunts me I took the stand, I got a shock, my bones were full of electricity I never said that I was careful But I don't need another skinful Christ! Please just let me concentrate on something... Doormats of the world unite! The bell's been rung - get back on site The tunnel entrance falls on down, I aggravated some old ground Blown too much smoke now, don't you think? - So come on and buy me another fucking drink Well, I ain't aggro, I ain't sin - just terrified I don't fit in I slide along my sliding scale...

4. COME BACK TO ME My only research is the things that I made The people I spoke to, the price that I paid The diamonds I love, all the roads I have taken Full up with wonder, in love with fresh air Caught in the moment, I just wish you were there Too many people I've forsaken Come back to me! And I'll find the gold I should have paid you Come back to me! We're gonna find a truth that sticks Run wild and free Because the years have passed and I can't hear you Come back to me, and they can call us lunatics My only research is the blood that I bled The days I arrived, and the times that I fled Into the windswept beautiful weather We queued in a circle, fell down in a line Got to the gate, but didn't make it in time I'll play you the old songs cos they're better Come back to me...

5. CEASE & DESIST Fetch me a drink Red and odd and one to eighteen Got time to think The surroundings know just what I mean I like the room The magic kicks in, chains fall freely Navvy in his suit he got a rage on And I think I’m cool as the air-con Sized up the well You wouldn’t believe how deep it went down I couldn’t tell That every expression brought the same frown Die long, de-rail He thinks this thing was born in my mind Tomorrow I’ll recite the story You’ve no idea how much it bores me… Cease and desist Before you sign up to this loving family Dragged by the wrists I couldn’t believe just how she had me Cease and desist Before you sign up to this loving family Dragged by the wrists I couldn’t believe just how she had me I couldn’t believe this solvent tragedy Wasted and burned But still the energy is fizzing The numbers turn These filthy notes show what I’m risking You shut your mouth My number’s in – gave me a lifeline Chalk away the years with your old family Hand me down to anyone who’ll have me Sized up the truth Far too heavy – couldn’t move it I wanted proof You forced my hand then you refused it Thrown out the door The new day loomed like something viral Beat me up and tie me to the railings You cleared your throat and told me all my failings… Cease and desist... Tomorrow’s duplicate is dawning The repetition’s so appalling… Cease and desist...

In Ascension 02:49
6. IN ASCENSION Five years ago I promised you a song Five years ago I could do no wrong Now I'm older and I let myself go There's something that I think I have to let you know You're a star, you're a star and you're in ascension You're a grade that my schooling failed to mention You've got power in your eyes and a laugh from heaven Oh, but you've also got one from hell I'm sorry I was cold, I'm sorry I was hot But I'll be here for you for just as long as I've got This song ain't a message - hope you understand It's just a kiss on the cheek, and a shake of your hand You're a star... This song is a compliment This song is a bunch of flowers This song's an apology You're a star...

7. FIVE FAVOURS PLEASE Don't think you're me Don't think I'm you Don't think you're anyone Don't think I do But the last favour I'd like, is the goddamn most important So promise me you'll grant it, or I'll never know just why the hell I'm here Don't think of time Don't think life's fine Don't think the world's bad Don't let all the horrible stuff drive you mad Oh, but what I'd really like is the thing I took for granted So promise me you'll grant it, or I'll never know just why the hell I'm here I covered up the silence, and I filled it all with love I cast away the darkness and I almost got strung up

8. SOMETHING'S HAPPENING HERE I've seen the road, girl, and it's smacked me in the face I've seen the road, girl... Standing at the factory gates Waiting for the minibus Heads are glowing in the crowd Something's happening here Sun is bright and rain looks green What the hell's happening to us? Turn around to check the clock And then you disappear Through the dust and the rain and the sky I don't know why you're running You just leave without saying goodbye And I don't know why you're running... Lying on my back again Staring up into the night Smells of earth and fallen leaves Something's happening here I dreamt that I just saw your face Beamed through from a satellite It suddenly starts pissing down And then you disappear... Through the dust... I've seen the road, girl, and it's smacked me in the face I've seen the road, girl I've seen the road, girl, and it's still my favourite place I love the road, girl Through the dust...
