Track Name: Super Vapour Trail Sunrise
Fall apart from the heels up
Glue the cracks to seal the pain shut
Wake up on your own
Panic attack with a dry throat
Who put petrol in my aquarium?
All my fish are on fire!
Wake up on your own
Panic attack and you’re cold
Wake up on your own
Shed your lungs and you choke
Track Name: Acrobat
If you fall to earth are you likely to survive
With a second-hand parachute won by you in a
We spent some time; We’re broke
You were wounded in perfection
You were wounded in the way you wanted
I will shed my skin down to the bone
Stare out the glare in the eye of time
Track Name: Catamaran
I can see in your eyes that you’re so cold
And it’s no big surprise that you’re not near
I’ll keep chewing my mouth whilst you can
work it out
I can open the skies now, it’s not gold
Elevated reflections above you
I’ll keep losing my senses whilst you
work it out
Take it back
Give me something less destructive
I can breathe through my eyes, watch me unfold
Pulling shapes with my tongue, you disguise me
I’ll keep shifting my bones whilst you can
work it out
Take it back
Give me something less destructive
I repair the oxygen
Track Name: Elevated Reflections
I have, you have broken my back
Bending forwards, choke on my words
Track Name: San Marino 1994
Scratch these eyelids from my eyes
Take the flesh from under these fractured skies
Machine tears are floating in the wind
Evaporated mess is not happening
Prevent the out from caving in
Suspend emotions, circuits malfunctioning
We smile to keep the circumference
A grin of electric lies
You are so beautiful on fire.
