Track Name: Born In The Eighties
Dionne vouched for the beggar with the suitcase
Said she saw the whole thing and it wasn't him
Officers were a touch on the harsh side
Beggar left the station bleeding from a cut on his ear

Door closed, engine started in the driveway
Monday morning, got a whole lot of feeling down
I breathe, you breath beside me
Don't you know, we've got a little bit of everything
So put in what you expect to get back out
Then you'll never be disappointed with your day
I lost all of my faith in you that day

Oh, what's so funny about needing company?
Where all the ladies that were born in the eighties?

Been a while, longer than should ever be
It's a killer and it's killing me
One step at a time and don't act crazy
It's a killer and it's killing me

Oh, what's so funny about needing company?
Where all the ladies that were born in the eighties?
Track Name: Cowboy Song
There's been a disturbance down that way
Just make sure you take extra care
Cos I don't want to lose another
Not after what happened last year

Times they get harder, and don't you know
They get harder before the let up
If you feel in a pinch, and the horrors are in
Just give me a call and I'll jump

So I said what you doing out here crying
It's cold and there's nothing to see
And I put one of my arms around you
That's how it's supposed to be

Oh mama, I swear I'll be a good boy
And I'll pack all my things nice and neat
Then I'll show the girls down to the river
And we'll wash all our things in the stream
Track Name: Next Train Home
Your crystal heart won't make the grade
Seasons in and out of phase
Whether or not you feel the same
Don't go walking on my heart again

I'll put it out, out on a limb
To show you nothing more than skin
Whether or not you feel the same
I'll be on the next train home
Track Name: Down At The Bottom
I got thinking about where I'm going in this life of mine
I decided to go out for a walk
With my feet both hitting the ground, one at a time on the concrete
Feel the rhythm helps me get a hold of my thoughts

Oh, there is peace down at the bottom

I dropped out of the race and I told you I was honest
I lied through my teeth just to get away
Everyone's so obsessed with getting ahead, they really want it
What do you do when you find yourself all alone at the top

Oh, there is peace down at the bottom

Holding out for the right moment to surface
Don't mean that I'm lazy, don't mean that I'm dragging my heels
I got all that I need in my hands and in my pockets
So when it comes up I'll be ready to get on the road

Oh, there is peace down at the bottom
Track Name: Flares
When you said that you spent last night in his arms
I took my things and I went out walking in the rain through town
I saw all the people laughing, drinking and fighting in the street
And I said to myself that I'm never going back

Give me another drop of whatever you've got
And I'll drink it here where the barmaid's and waiters talk
And now there's nothing left but to by cigarettes
And walk on home through the streets of the waking dead
I thought I could be some kind of hero and save you from this world
But my heart and my head, they are breaking trend
I will falter toward the end, until I meet you there again
Track Name: Snakes And Ladders
Since I've been working in this darn gone place
I don't see no ladders and I'm slipping down those snakes
And I ain't sleeping, since you been gone I been awake
Honey, darling, please. Come back for goodness sake

There's a woman in the street today, she's been crying all day long
Her soldier husband's back today, but he's coming back in a box
And it blows my mind, cos I don't see the point in killing folks
For a race that claims to be civilised, we're always throwing rocks

So come along to see the show, it's sure to be a thrill
Take your semi-automatic and remember to write your will
Cos you're going out boy, someone's gonna shoot you through the neck
I don't know about you but I ain't dying for somebody else's cheque

This was supposed to be a love song but it's grown arms and legs
I was supposed to tell you all the thoughts and feelings in my head
But I got carried away, I got talking about the war
If you ain't going to put in the effort girl, then this ain't worth fightin for
Track Name: Like Stars
Pour leaded on this head of mine, I want to set alight
Like stars, your effervescence keeps me burning through the night
In the corner of this frame of mine, no picture can be kept
I'll hold onto your body when your body starts to slip

And the black night comes, like it always does

Above our heads, from east to west, there are holes across the sky
And behind every one of them, there's an ocean filled with light
The distance between us and them will bend the hands of time
But if we'd only close our eyes and open up our minds

They'd be right here, and we'd see clear

Pour leaded on this head of mine, I want to set alight
Like stars, your effervescence keeps me burning through the night
In the corner of this frame of mine, no picture can be kept
I'll hold onto your body when your body starts to slip

And the black night comes, like it always does
Track Name: Nice To Meet You
Nice to meet you, you seem so softly
Creeping in, creeping on
I feel the words your body's thinking
It's a wonder you talk at all

I was waiting for the answer
Tiding over to catch the coast
If needs were only wants you wished for
This forever wouldn't seem so long

Would be nice to meet you every morning
See the sun reflected in your starry eye
And if you're not careful with what you wish for
You'll be in for a big surprise
Track Name: Palindrome
You disconnect heads from necks where you walk
Eyes light up the night at the thought of being caught
If you're letting them down, won't you let them down soft
In the end, we pretend that it's dead and we're not

The one thing I notice, I don't seem to notice at all

It's the evening, this feeling is heating me up
And I wish it existed here with us
It's a delicate thing, it's a tell you can trust
Raise it up to your ear, you wil hear it combust

The one thing I notice, I don't seem to notice at all
Track Name: Rooftops
I don't hear you calling
I don't hear you calling out
Track Name: Wandering Girl
When I've got too much time on my hands I find
The devil makes work for them light
I've hurt some people in my life
Unrivalled at starting a fight

When you are hurting, out on the road
Never too far should you roam
Cos there's nothing like coming home

Pieces of silver and pieces of gold
Mean nothing to me don't you know
When family's distant, friends ain't even close
What's riches when you're alone

Out on the highway, time after time
I send you a wire down the line
Met with silence every time

If you grew weary, left when you could
I'd understand, you know I would
And if there was something that I didn't do good
I'd understand, yes I would

Just let me remember you as you were
A pillar of strength in this world
And remember me, my wandering girl
