Track Name: Borderline
What must I do? To win the fair alliance with you?
Why don't you shred my soul? 'Cos our love is so weak and old

Who are the lost ones walking with me?
Who are the wounded all I can see?
Oh, Borderline in the sea.
Oh, cross the line here with me. Oh, Borderline.

I caught a thought for you, it was melting iron, black and blue
You threw the stone so far, it was rippling in the river afar

The silhouette has faded, there's nothing to see
The boat's have gone, abated, there's nothing to see but fear and coast
The shore's only filled with lonely ghosts.
Track Name: Breaking Point
When the stars they go, when the night sky fades you know
When the stain it goes, when the fog lifts you know
Hold on, the sun's gone, it's dark in here
Hold on, the sun's gone, its' dark in here

Hoping that I might see you again
And all I want and all I need is your soul
The Breaking Point, the falling arc of your love

The frozen discussion it grates the soul
The violence it kills my heart

I will find you where ever you are
Track Name: Don't Call My Name
The dust I see on my window, the moths that stick to the walls
The fire keeps burning, the embers that spread like diamonds
Please Don't Call My Name 'cos I won't answer, these city walls lock me out, lock me out.

The pauper who keeps all his pennies, will one day become his own enemy,
The crystal ball keeps breaking, unfiltered and senseless like war.

If I could tell you your future, I would do but I'd be afraid.
Track Name: Stowaway
Turn me away, I don't mind 'cos I've had my day, and you too
Follow in my footsteps in the dirty path that I see before me.

You tell me I'm being abused, You tell me I'm being used
But I don't care what they say to you 'cos I'm in my hole all day
I'm a Stowaway

Take me away, I don't mind 'cos I'm here to stay, a Stowaway
I don't even know where I'm going to
I'm free like the wind that blows

And you may find I'm watching above
And you may find I'm guilty of the crime.
Track Name: Lighthouse
In the silent slumber where time is thunder
Our troubles melt into rain
The silent watchman, so broken-hearted, he slips away in sheer pain

You're my Lighthouse, though I can't expect you to light up my only way home, You're my Lighthouse, though I can't accept that you'll light up my only way home

In the streets of London, the tide is rising, I'll be there one day with you
I fled to Cromer to see my owner, our fears they turn into gold
Track Name: Eliza
The stonelight in my heart
Our souls so apart
A diamond in the sky, ready to reprise

Oh Eliza in my heart, Oh Eliza our souls apart
Let's pretend it'll go away, all the fear and the pain

A filter in my sight
Oh I know I've lied
So delicate in tone, always on the 'phone.

Hoping that you might be rested 'til dawn
Delicate milk in your eyes and your soul.
Track Name: Los Feliz
You could be lost in Los Feliz
You could be hot in Hollywood
You could be drinking in the Sunset Strip
You could be high in Bel Air
You could be smoking in the chair, in the hotel where travellers go.

I wasn't where I said I'd be, you wouldn't know, there's more to LA than Hollywood.
You saw the sign and drove towards the ocean, I wasn't there, on my way to Silverlake

Careers don't come out of thin air
You thought you were ugly so you had some surgery
You had gone, your soul had died.

I thought you had
But it wasn't to be
Track Name: Reflection
I could call myself up, I could bring myself down
You could be where you are
Inside this hell
I hear a bell

So I look up the past
It burns like a stone
There's no point crying when you're all alone
You could be a good writer
You could be a good soul
But nobody loves you, you're too old

I could be there inside a page
To witness the toxic, all the rage
I could be with you now, I could be there

Apologies come to those who wait
But I don't owe anything to you
You held your cards and you're playing them now
