Track Name: All I Ever Wanted Was What You Wanted
Take your book of spells
Down to the sea
And forget me
It’s not what you know
And it’s not what you’ve been
And it’s not what it should be

The moons not there but it was before
I wasn't sure what they wanted from me
From me

I was a child,
Only wanted to make you happy
Look off for miles,
It’s not a goodbye, it’s not really anything

The stage was set but they wanted more
I wasn't sure what you wanted from me
The days reset but you wanted more
I wasn't sure what you wanted from me

But your heart it would, it keeps the beat for me
But your heart it would, it keeps the beat for me

All I ever wanted was…
All I ever wanted was…
All I ever wanted was…
All I ever wanted was…
Track Name: Metropolis
Stand up number 2274
We’ve audited your thoughts, it’s glorious
And we’re here to help, we’re at your door
Never leave you wanting more

Brush your teeth and do your hair
Drive to work while overhead
Iron roots arch in with every breath
Closing in from every end

It’s what you signed for
For the 123rd floor
It’s what you signed for
We know you’ll adore, Metropolis

Didn't you hear the news report?
Crimes up 5000%, I thought,
So take your medication and rest your head
It’s already too scary out there

It’s what you signed for
The most stylish of decor
At a price you can’t ignore
We know you would love more
It’s what you signed up for
It’s what you signed up for
No dreaming anymore
So sleeping can conform
No dreaming anymore in,
Dreaming anymore
So sleeping can conform
No dreaming anymore
So sleeping can conform
It’s what you signed up for
For the 123rd floor
To stylish to ignore
We know you will adore, Metropolis
Metropolis
Metropolis
Oh Metropolis
Track Name: Calm Down
Entropy eventually will slow just long enough to see us through.
Eventually the sun will run out of energy and swell and block the view.
And where advertising companies will stress unique opportunities to you.
And the get rich possibilities that lend themselves to the impending doom.

But just calm the fuck down, no one else was gonna see this through.
Just calm the fuck down, its not a game you’re ever gonna win.
And know that you can’t compete with the working week, no matter what your instagram feed said.
You never owned you, the universe takes what it wants, now it’ll take your knees, maybe your hair.

But that’s ok so I guess we’re all just falling apart, I fall apart with you.
But that’s ok so I guess I’ll start falling apart, I fall apart with you.
It’s not up for debate, so accept your fate, it’s about as good as you are gonna do.
But that’s ok so I guess we’re all just falling apart, I fall apart with you.
Track Name: You Don't Bleed
Close your eyes, wander down
To the sea, to the well
It’s overgrown and it’s underwhelmed
But it always was with you so hard to tell

Cause you don't bleed
No you don't bleed

Chain me to this wooden surround
Left to sleep in these re-runs, rewound
Walk on off, through the trees
And you, you can paint them any colour you please

Cause you don't believe
But you don't bleed
No you don’t bleed
No you don't bleed
Track Name: A Lost Forgotten Dream
Please understand,
Woken by the tender lunar screams
As the silver moon recedes
From so close it can almost touch the top of slender falling trees
Your face is carved into the seams
Of the five remaining leaves
As deadly silence leads into
As far as the eye can see

All in some lost forgotten dream

So please hold my hand,
All this electric energy
To charge the sky so vividly
Light pink smeared across in seams
You’re not sure if you can see
Forever or are you entombed inside a painting or in a dream
But theres no corners to hide into, only haunting clarity

All in some lost forgotten dream

And please my homeland,
A second distant moon now in perfect symmetry
It puts you on your knees
As emotions all but freeze
And acknowledgement received
From a glaciers gentle wheeze
As the air beneath is squeezed
And collected by a mountain’s gentle breeze

All in some lost forgotten dream

And please understand,
And when the rusted orbits seize
And siamese moons fail to release
Your left to wonder if all is borrowed what your next move should be?
Remember that all will be eventually returned to sea
So you let your body leach away into the soil and the trees

All in some lost forgotten dream
All in some lost forgotten dream
All in some lost forgotten dream
All in some lost forgotten dream
Track Name: Feel It Again
Microscopic hands, pull at my eyes
They skim and spin and swim and multiply
And oh how they fly
Oh how they fly
Oh how they fly
Oh how they fly

Microscopic hands pull at my time
The wind begins to sing and sun gods will cry
And oh how they cry
Oh how they cry
Oh how they cry
Oh how they cry

Cause all that you know, is you feel it again
All that you know is you feel it again
All that you know is you feel it again
Feel it again, feel it again

Microscopic hands pull morning to sky
But slip away again although how we try
And oh how they try
Oh how they try
Oh how they try
Oh how they try

All that you know, is you feel it again
All that you know is you feel it again
All that you know is you feel it again
Feel it again, feel it again
Track Name: Emerald Halls, Venetian Bulbs, Kingdom Falls
For all your merchant gold
And canvas maps to gods intact
And other worldly bronze
Trinkets, lost worlds and artefacts

Libraries, untitled books
Not for human contact
All draped in emerald halls
You wont be breaking hold

The planets have all foretold
Appeased with sacrificial acts
Lighthouse built, Venetian bulbs
To charge the sun when it turns black

And walls a thousand tall
Will withstand any attack
Your druids have all been told
You wont be breaking hold

As you watch your kingdom fall
As you watch your kingdom fall

For your specimens on walls
And jars of undefined substance
You clearly read the stars
But they didn't answer back

And through your mountain sprawls
Of dyed fabrics and sheepskin hats
You feel the winters cold
You feel it taking hold

As you watch your kingdom fall
As you watch your kingdom fall
Track Name: Slowly, Slowly
Wait outside your door,
She’s walking through the walls,
But there’s only ever so much you can be

And silent to the core,
Swim against the background noise,
It’s only expectation leaving me

So slowly, slowly
So slowly, slowly

And shiny city walls,
All empty faces, catastrophes
Are lead to ruin, with relative ease

A thousand years before,
Water falls, where you stand were trees,
And it will continue, long after you leave

So slowly, slowly
So slowly, slowly
So slowly, slowly
So slowly, slowly
Track Name: Tion
Exaggeration.
Exfoliation.
Suffocation.

A long feathered falcon traverses the shore
With antiseptic waves caressing it soars
And cliffs crumble away like a slice from a sword
And clouds grate through the sky like nails on a board

Notification.
Nullification.
Obliteration.

The caustic remains of a heartless recluse
As it dazzles the brains and the eyes as the soup
It drizzles its way through the limestone caves
Where it waits in a pool, in a vein, in a grave

Resuscitation
Reincarnation
Mummification
Reanimation
Regurgitation
Coagulation
Beautification

Resuscitation
Resuscitation

Hallucination
Renumeration
Sterilisation

Electrical plains like umbilical chords
They discharge in the rain into hard fleshy gourds
And the metal fjords grafted onto the seams
Of skeletal remains of the skyscraper beams
And Giraffe tower forth, with their jackknife necks slice
Oh their heads into Earth to carve up the mice
And the falcon returns and spice ships run ashore
With wishbones unhinged and marrow galore

Administration
Classification
Abomination
Congratulations
