Track Name: Light Years Away
Head pressed against the train window
Tiger stripes of slow-motion shadow
Pigeons threw themselves to the sky
A look of ambiguity got cast into her eyes

The escalators filled up the station
Every blink felt like a lead vibration
The movie played a faded noir
While in close proximity, I wondered where you are

Millions of light years away
Sitting here beside me on an early morning train
Millions of light years away
Following your enigmatic daydreams

But I caught your reflection and wondered if you knew
That I was far away beyond the world with you

Crossing the platform to the northern line
Weaving through a crowd without any mind
Hollers came from central control
Static ran the airwaves of a jagged radio

But nobody paid it any attention
They were far away beyond these harsh dimensions
Far beyond the ends of the earth
Drifting through the ether of their private universe

Millions of light years away
Sitting here beside me on an early morning train
Millions of light years away
Following your enigmatic daydreams

But I caught your reflection and wondered if you knew
That I was far away beyond the world with you
Track Name: Low
You get the feeling that you've solarized
Over-extended over-emphasized
I'll tell you something that I just don't know
To lift you up, when you feel low.

Plenty to say but you've got none of it right
Wont be a part of your emotional heist
Wont be a part of your myopic views
Forget about me, forget about you.

When you're low, in a bad state of mind, feeling low.

I sit and wonder how you're getting on
Better you fucked it up than carried it on
Undid the locks from all your shackles and chains
Now you're free to run, follow your own way.

When you're low, in a bad state of mind, feeling low
You know sometimes we'll slip along like mudslides
Trying to find our feet in a quagmire.
Track Name: The Lions Roam
Fall into a coma switch out the light
Drop another wish into the well
Echoes of your emptiness fell through the night
Rebound upon the ends of the world

Where lions roam and pinocchios nose grows
Meaningless motion as the wild winds blow
Gone overload, no emotional control
Guess my imagination let itself go.

Stretch across the uni-void into the endless
We're stranded like shipwrecks out on the sea
Shadows of the shapeless circle around us
But nothing in the message transmitting

Where lions roam and pinocchios nose grows
Meaningless motion as the wild winds blow
Gone overload, no emotional control
Guess my imagination let itself go.

Ballerina jewellery box stole my affection
Spinning to the sugar plum fairy
Echoes of your emptiness, heard without mention
We plugged into a home-made heart machine

Where lions roam and pinocchios nose grows
Meaningless motion as the wild winds blow
Gone overload, no emotional control
Guess my imagination let itself go.
Track Name: Down In The Archives
Under the stairs of the house
Hidden away on a dusty shelf
Behind the china collection
Family albums and Grandmas forty fives
Down in the Archives.

Up in the Cambrian mountains
Over the meadow of flower tops
When we were young and forgetful
You might remember what you said at the time

Down in the archives
Somewhere down in the archives.

She had a head full of soundtracks
I had a number of starwars figurines
Watching the sun form a sunset
Get an attack flashing back before my eyes
My bed of pink camellias
Lying asleep with intoxicated minds

Down in the archives
Somewhere down in the archives.
Track Name: Nearing Unification
All in moderation for modification...
The cosmic vibration gave us stimulation...
You're machiavellian like a grey alien... nearing unification.
Track Name: After
After all of the beauty's left our eyes
After all of the stars have flown by
After the worlds done turning
After the land fell into the sea.

Once the clowns make-up gets wiped away
After all our tomorrows have lived their day
After the kiss stretches apart
After the blood has spilled from our hearts

My love for you darlin'
My love for you
My love for you darlin'...
Remains true.

After the anesthesia's come clean
After all of the silence made its scene
After the flames left the sun
After the riots have been run

My love for you darlin'
My love for you
My love for you darlin' ...
Remains true.
