1. Gush

Drain, drain the water out, unblock it all again
Filled with simple things, unnecessary hate
I sat around and watched it all soak up for days
Confuses everyone but still makes sense to me

Always in here
Always in reach
Always in me

Then the liquid boils but doesn’t seem to change its shape
Avoid the drips and all the puddles they create
Almost overwhelmed but relatively sane
Therapeutic in a different kind of way

Always in here
Always in reach
Always in me

When, when it all looks done it starts over again
I’ll just close my eyes I can’t get rid of it

Always in here
Always in reach
Always in me

I need to get away, I can’t believe it’s come to this
I need to get away, I can’t believe it’s come to this
I need to get away, I can’t believe it’s come to this
I can’t believe it’s come to this, this

2. Adjust The Way

Get ahead, it isn’t easy now
That you have to count on me
She said, my life is harder now
That you’ve found your own way in

I saw an omen, found a way in
A version of Heaven, and as I stepped in
My stomach churned, something’s missing

Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the…

What I saw definitely wasn’t you
Do you expect me to carry on
Because it’s like a blindfold
And I can’t predict the end

I saw an omen, found a way in
A version of Heaven, and as I stepped in
My stomach churned, something’s missing

Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the…

Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the world
Adjust the way of the…

3. Glue

He grips all his baggage to himself
Sticks him to the surface that he knows
Unmovable and perfectly at home in a spiral

His skin is smooth but he has jagged bones
He can never reach the places that he’d like to go
You wonder why he’s always sat at home in silence

Glue
I am glue
I am glue
I am glue
I am glue

He stands at the doors and looks outside
A flood of anger slowly fills his mind
Disgusted, he turns back and goes inside another time

He goes to kitchen and he cries
With shaking hands he grabs the nearest knife
Lets out a breath as it sinks in his side, oh what a mess

Glue
I am glue
I am glue
I am glue
I am

I am glue
I am glue
I am glue
I am glue
I am

4. Damp Sand

Damp sand and pretty handfuls of glassy minerals gather round
And form a tight circle so I can’t back out
So you can lie me down
And press the tiny stones into my sinuses
Fill up my cavities so…

Now nothing can drip, nothing can weep or regurgitate no more
A static frame leans against a white wall there it remains for now
What’s with the lifelessness? Controlled expressions are practical

This is how it went
You set me up
And I climbed into my shell
And hid until dawn

Years pass, easy summers unaware of how slow time has passed
As I’m getting used to it there’s a wild wind and it blows out of me
I stretch my ligaments, I relearn how to breathe

Through sore lungs with aching muscles that always tire out and quickly blacken
It was soft mud so I crawled my way through the surface without your hand to take
This time I’ll do it right
My throat’s never been so dry

This is how it went
You set me up
And I climbed into my shell
And hid until dawn

A field, a home, a hole, a mound
Block up, breathe in, block up, blow out
It’s useless

5. Empty Mug

Wake up with aching eyes biting my tongue
I tried to get out
I never made it, I never made it

You feel nothing
Empty like your mug
You feel nothing
Empty like your mug

Lie down, water surrounds, I sit up
Before I drown I see your face
I see your face in my sleep

You feel nothing
Empty like your mug
You feel nothing
Empty like your mug

7. Centralwing

Everyone lying around me
Heads around my feet, leaving their bodies
Fast asleep

Search hard and you might find me
We’re there when we’re needed
I’m so far gone it won’t be easy
I’m breaking inside

A centralwing surrounded by the sea
Shrivelling in the heat, there for all to see
Fast asleep

Search hard and you might find me
We’re there when we’re needed
I’m so far gone, it won’t be easy
I’m breaking inside

It’s getting
It’s getting old
Pour some colour into this hole

Search hard and you might find me
We’re there when we’re needed
I’m so far gone, it won’t be easy
I’m breaking inside

8. Made Of Concrete

And you get so scared
Even when there’s friends there
You really want to walk out
Even though you’re stuck now
And you feel the pain in your feet
Because the floor is made of concrete
So you try to make them turn around
But you’ve travelled way too far now

You dream of being somewhere
So you don’t have to be here
But you don’t even know where
You could find a place that
Remotely matches your plan
Of a castle in the outlands
So you think of all that you can
And you take ahold of their hand

9. Open Mouth

Watch, watch the teeth and gums
As they swell and swallow their own tongues
And still they scream, a million mouths to feed
Only through their coloured TV screens

You’re just an open mouth

In, inhale everything
A tunnel through the throat
But feel the opposite
Wreck and destroy everything
A sample of themselves
Warped into tales of love

You’re just an open mouth

Gel sticking to themselves, a shield of will
A sword of confusion begins to grow
What began as a thought has become its own
And took on solid form

You’re just an open mouth

10. Mike

”Have you heard from Mike?
It’s been too long, I’ll bet he’s dead”
Cried Lila through the wall

”Don’t talk like that
There’s a decent chance that he’ll come back
My child is tough, he lives on battery fluid”

We had a son
None of the documents
We even prayed before we ate, what for?

”The ants they did it
I know who they work for
And they would kidnap my only son”

”No, I think it was the walls
The room was always shrinking up
Now there’s no space for a door, no exit or airflow”

We had a son
He had no muscles
We even prayed before we ate, for so long

No photos
No memories
No belongings
He’s based on nothing

11. It Knows It

It, it knows it
Only knows this
Doesn’t think it can’t begin
Maybe there’s a loose connection

A shimmer of bloom
Dives across and bends into you
A flicker of blue
A moment of life that sparks within you

Only aware
Only aware for a moment
For a moment or so

Could it show it?
Where do thoughts begin?
Only flows along the grain
But never seems to sink into it

A shimmer of bloom
Dives across and bends into you
A flicker of blue
A moment of life that sparks within you

Only aware
Only aware for a moment
For a moment or so

12. Blue Sun

He goes outside to play
He’s rejected by all of the people he knows

The sun ain’t here to stay
But today it’s so warm
It won’t be here long

The birds are calmly singing
The air is mildly warm
He ain’t happy at all

He paces round his garden
He searches through his thoughts
What has he done wrong?

And the blue sun
Shines
Down on the tears
They dry
He now goes

He sits inside alone
His head down in his hands
What shall he do now?

She is out of the question
She is somewhere else
So what’s to worry about?

He prays for god to listen
He should listen to himself
She ain’t coming home

He waits to solve his problems
For them to solve themselves
You should try you know

The blue sun
Shines
Down on the tears
They dry
Now go
