Track Name: Black Ship
I’m cutting eye holes in papers
To read between the lines
I’m in with out crowd lately
Now I’m surrounded by lies

Thought at first it was a simple mistake
All this talk about fist fights and black ships
My light’s breaking open shadows and cloud
I’m a landslide victory in an average of dead heats
YEAH…

I’m cutting eye holes in papers
To read between the lines
I’m in with out crowd lately
Now I’m surrounded by lies

Holding up traffic with one hand as I walk
I’m your backdoor man all your heroes are villains
I will give you widescreen, Steve McQueen, James Dean
All my dreams I’m making true
FOR YOU…
Track Name: Winston's Rats
Plink and flicker of a kitchen light
Two hours ago you laughed at me and said goodbye
I can’t see where we are maybe you can see
It’s a long way down to normal that’s where we should be
Lately all my dreams are running free

Winston’s rats are running loose inside my head
I put them there just as I was going to bed
This rides broken down I think I’ll call it in
It feels like Dr. Seuss has written all my scenes
Lately all my dreams are running free

My heart is filling up again
And I danced my way to you
We’re kissing in the half-light girl
As we skip the taxi queue

AAAYY OOOH!

New light splits the fabric
Moves across the floor
Roll over in the echoes
Of the night before

Lately all my dreams are running free
Track Name: I'm Grand
You have never far to go
With a beach towel and a radio
How is it you look cool
With a bumbag and a sombrero

Ah… I’m grand

Do you think if you go we grieve
You were last here now you’re first to leave
We’ve all got shit to do as well
Just press record, edit out the death knell

Ah… I’m grand

Are you thumbing lifts or marching on
Is that your own drum is the click track gone
You spend most your time wasting time
You spend most your time wasting time

Bah bah bah bah bah….
Track Name: Cinderellas Learning
No hits
she googles herself at least twice a month
her egos on stage and she’s up the front
sing along it’s all just chorus no verse

Two clicks
she’s got the right haircut she’s got the right jewels
but she’s still carrying last years seasonal blues
sing along see yourself in the crowd stand tall

But she just can’t see...
that the teardrops sealed behind her eyes
they soak away her mind
raise your sleeve to cheek
the best is in your sights

The shoe fits... She’s looking the other way

Deep breaths
Cindy’s walking round barefoot there’s no stone in her sock
thinking girl of action and acting with thought
sing along it’s verse chorus verse chorus of course

Now she finally sees...
that the teardrops sealed behind her eyes
they soak away her mind
raise your sleeve to cheek
the best is in your sights

The shoe fits... She’s looking the other way

Let’s go outside
breath in and smile
don’t chase those lights
you’ve all the sun you need

The shoe fits... She’s looking the other way
