01. The Captain
01. The Captain 3:43

Angels fall to the floor
Like they would if I was captain
Silver children, She roared
I'm not the son of God
Somebody help me sing
Can anybody hear me?
Liars and lovers combine tonight
We're gonna make a scene

Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh
Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh
Help me be captain of
Our crippled disguises
I won't show what's underneath
It's time for surprises
I can't climb up your ladder
I can't ride your horse
I've swallowed half an hourglass
So now the landscape is swollen up

I gave birth to a fire
It's like it's features where burning
I'm in control, I am the son of God
Somebody help me sing
Can anybody hear me?
Line up your soldiers one final time
We're gonna have a ball

Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh
Somebody help me sing whoaaa oh oh

Help me be captain of
Our crippled disguises
I won't show what's underneath
It's time for surprises
I can't climb up your ladder
I can't ride your horse
I've swallowed half an hourglass
So nowhe landscape is swollen up

Let's throw death away

02. That Golden Rule 3:49

Son of Henry, I'm the first in line
To the throne, smell my mustard gas
I slash swords through your wooden spine
Well it cut my heart and it blew my head
We made love at the side of the road
Reflex, you better know this flows fast
This river is particularly sinister
Close your eyes and take my hand

I wanna scream one last death medley
I am looking for a reason to secure a forward motion

Love that golden rule, that golden rule
Need that golden rule, that golden rule
Secrets are the truth, they are the truth
We need that silver rule, that silver rule

Face to face with the ball and chain
I'll poke my head up till its red
I tell my secrets and you took my pain
About a broken heart and I will do it again
Son of Henry, I'm the first in line
To the throne, smell my mustard gas
I slash swords through your wooden spine
Well it cut my heart and it blew my head

I want to scream one last death medley
I am looking for a reason to secure a forward motion

Love that golden rule that golden rule
Need that golden rule that golden rule
Secrets are the truth they are the truth
We need that silver rule that silver rule 

03. Bubbles 5:01

Well how’s your view of things today,
Got up young to fade away
The sinners sin but aren’t aware
Our fables take us everywhere
I can’t keep up with you
I can’t keep up
I can’t compete with history,
We’ll film it live but dub our tale
The mystery must stay inside,
Look at our homes, look at our lives
In control of the morning,
In control of the sea

You are creating all the bubbles at night,
I’m chasing round trying to pop them all the time
We don’t need to trust a single word they say
You are creating all the bubbles at play
There’s a girl there’s a girl
There’s a girl there’s a girl
And she’s down by the river
In her own creepy world
There’s a girl there’s a girl
And she’s down by the river
It’s time to consider
That baby is a sinner
She’ll wash away your sins
And go home

I only once upset my kin,
Accused him of a moral slip
He came back and claimed a change
I know his life’s the same again
I can’t ask him again,
I should let it go
There’s a girl, there’s a girl, there’s a girl,
There’s a girl, she’s face down in the river 

04. God and Satan 3:09

I talk to god as much
As I talk to satan
‘Cause I want to hear both sides
Does that make me cynical
There are no miracles and
This is no miraculous life

I savour hate as much as I crave love
Because I’m just a twisted guy
Is this the pinnacle, is this the pinnacle
The pinnacle of being alive?
Now I see the light

Well I look up to god
But I see trouble
‘Cause this ain’t a miracle
I just want to take my chance
To live through a miracle
I know for certain that someone
Is watching but is it from up or down?
I make you miserable you stick with me
Although you know I’m gonna
Ruin your life we walk into the tide
When the seesaw snaps and splinters
Your hand don’t come crying to me
I’ll only see your good side
And believe it’s a miracle, a miracle

I slap the water and watch the fish dance
To the ripples of us
We’re just dull blue duds Blinking eyes encased in rust

This ain’t a miracle
This ain’t a miracle 

05. Born on a Horse 2:49

I pronounce it aluminium,
‘Cause there’s an i next to the u and m
Now write it down slowly and read it out fast
She’s got eyes, preposterous eyes
I’ve never had a lover who’s my sister
Or my brother before

I’ve been counting on the wrong things
To make life feel alright
You could be my acid queen
Until the end of time
‘Cause you can have it all,
You’re stuck in the middle
Raise them one and all,
I was born on a horse that’s all...

I like to think I’m just a thoroughbred,
In all but name and with no horse’s flesh
We’re galloping slowly through this broken glass
She’s got hooves, preposterous hooves
I’ve never had a lover who’s my sister
Or my brother before 

06. Mountains 3:21

I took a bite out of a mountain range,
Thought my teeth would break the mountain down.
Lets go, I want to go all the way to the horizon.

I took a drink out of the ocean and
I'm treading water there before I drown.
Lets dive, I want to dive to the bottom of the ocean.
I took a ride, I took a ride, I wouldn't go there without you.
Lets take a ride, we'll take a ride. I wouldn't leave here without you.

I am a mountain, I am the sea, you can't take that away from me.
I am a mountain, I am the sea, you can't take that away from me.

'Cause you tear us apart, with all the things you don't like.
You can't understand that I won't leave 'til we're finished here,
and then you'll find out where it all went wrong.

I wrote a note to the jungle and it wrote me back that
I was never crowned king of the jungle,
so there's and end to my horizon.
I took a ride, I took a ride. I wouldn't go there without you.
Lets take a ride, we'll take a ride. I wouldn't leave here without you.

I am a mountain, I am the sea, you can't take that away from me.
I am a mountain, I am the sea.

'Cause you tear us apart, with all the things you don't like.
You can't understand that I won't leave 'til we're finished here,
and then you'll find out where it all went wrong.

Nothing lasts forever, except you and me.
(You are my mountain, you are my sea)
Love will last forever, between you and me.
(You are my mountain, you are my sea)

I am a mountain, I am the sea, you can't take that away from me.
I am a mountain, I am the sea.
I am a mountain, I am the sea

07. Shock Shock 3:04

Well you scratch and you scratch ‘til your face comes away
Replaced by a hole a vortex just waiting to play
I commend your violence

Well I enter a cave with my wrists sticking out
The soles of my feet worn down to a dusty mess
I’ll stay numb to these accidents

Well you talk and you talk like you’re trying to shock me
I don’t even know what the fuck we’re still arguing about
Maintain my silence

You’re a shame to your dad ‘cause you’re killing his days
Irresponsible life you’ve only yourself to blame
Maintain your friendliness

You’re wondering why you’re exhausted, exhausted from
Using these lies
I’m sure you’ll regress again
Maintain your silence
I’ve been crippled by shock, shocked again
I’ll continue to douse your violence
With kisses of hate and silence
I’ve been crippled by shock 

08. Many of Horror 4:18

You say I love you boy
I know you lie
I trust you all the same
I don’t know why
‘Cause when my back is turned
My bruises shine
Our broken fairy tale
So hard to hide

I still believe it’s you and me ‘til the end of time
When we collide we come together
If we don’t we’ll always be apart
I’ll take a bruise I know you’re worth it
When you hit me hit me hard

Sitting in a wishin’ hole
Hoping it stays dry
Feet cast in solid stone
I’ve got Gilligan’s eyes
You said love was letting us go against what
Our future is for...
Many of horror our future’s for many of horror

09. Boom, Blast & Ruin 3:16

I’ve had enough
You burn the bridge I’ll cut the boat in half
Control
I’ve said enough, you keep the secrets I know you’ll never spill
Sold
Boom, blast and ruin girl
Causes distractions
You’re rooted in hell

I can’t surprise you girl, the truth is in motion
You cover it well but you’re praying for some action so you won’t
Realise
You used to be wrong, I used to be right

I flick the switch
I wake up in a corpse of sweat and tears
Soaked
I swallow truths
We fit like ice cream on an open wound
It soothes
Sink like cathedrals girl
Into the ocean
We rise like the sun!

10. Cloud of Stink 2:55

Dance if you wanna dance, if you wanna sweat
Sweat if you wanna smell, go do it alone
Fuck if you wanna fuck, if you wanna cum
Sleep if you wanna sleep, talk more in the morn’

Look up to the sky,
is it still good to feel alive?
Well I can dance on top of a hurricane
This combination will make its way round
Congratulations on marrying this clown

Swing if you wanna swing, hanging on a rope
Burn if you wanna burn, do it on your own
Cry if you wanna cry, acknowledge your heart
Wish if you wanna wish, the only way is up

Blame it on the world, visit them one and all
You have to comprehend what your heart says
There’s a black mould on my frazzled lungs, it whistles
My throat is gone,
I’m still holding on but I don’t have long
No I don’t have long
‘Cause it goes on and on and on and on
It whistles, let go 

11. Know Your Quarry 3:29

When I was young, I first encountered my
Crippled lungs
I felt them burn and
Cursed them ever since
I was turning blue in a match right in front
Of you
And I slithered to the floor
Hope I score some more

I won’t go where the sun doesn’t shine
Go crazy in the evening if we sail upright
Love is a shadow in the brightness it dies
Because tonight, we raise the sun
And we shine it over everyone
If we want a gradual hush
Our lips should kiss each other so...
I just want to feel your body
I want you to know your quarry

You can see the world
Looking down from a different universe
Can we save every single one of them we
Only have five hands
My father cradled us
We’re bright blue and we’re covered in
Blood
We staggered through the door
Trouble is taking score 

12. Whorses 3:54

Who’s the hippy now,
I cut it off to make you proud
Abuse my limbs until the sun goes down
I don’t want to be alone again

Got jesus’ autograph,
No handshake or pat on the ass
His saving grace was talking fast,
I don’t want to be bored again
Am I ready to take that chance,
Put my faith in someone else

Let’s use this dynamite
We’re only making noises
I’ll make the brightness yours,
So we can deny who we are, I love you
But not today
The darkness fell like a shout,
Am I ready to take that chance
Put my faith in someone else

Together we stand,
We’re at the bottom of the cove,
It looked like rain but
It felt like snow
Because wherever we stand,
We’re at the bottom of the hole
We’ll dig our way out
But we’ll still say no

The wound is king and how,
His whorses turn they make him proud,
His vision’s clipped like wings and crowns
Let’s use this photograph
He’s never even had the chance
To believe in something else

We want to affect a change
With voice and electrical noises
Wherever we crash we’re gonna blame it on the old
Unique to the touch and crippled to the bone
However we stand they’ll be swinging from the ropes
Unfinished and young or unhappy and old 

13. Sky Demon (iTunes Exclusive) 3:29

See a million streetlights
reflected on the back of my hand
with the lights down low
only my fingers burn

'cause you and me
we love eachother
and you and me
we can't stand each other

when we're old
we'll suffocate each other
if a bloody guitar
we will see we're happy

I dont want us to pretend
things will mix us ever again
say it loud and say it proud
nobodys special at all

this particular girl has
my heart in the palm of her hand
I hear her heart
so abides you sir

her dreams
her wants
her every need
my bones
have snapped
but can't she love me?

well sold to the highest bidder
i want she's over my chance

I dont want us to pretend
things will mix us ever again
say it loud and say it proud
no-ones special at all

I dont want situations to change
things can mix us
i know they can
i'm not aloud to say it out
nobody's special at all

come on and let the doors swing
come on and let the doors swing
come on and let the door open up your mind

when we're old
we'll suffocate each other
if a bloody guitar
we will see we're happy

I dont want us to pretend
things will mix us ever again
say it loud and say it proud
no-ones special at all
come on
