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 howís your view of things today,
Got up young to fade away
The sinners sin but arenít aware
Our fables take us everywhere
I canít keep up with you
I canít keep up
I canít compete with history,
Weíll 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,
Iím chasing round trying to pop them all the time
We donít need to trust a single word they say
You are creating all the bubbles at play
Thereís a girl thereís a girl
Thereís a girl thereís a girl
And sheís down by the river
In her own creepy world
Thereís a girl thereís a girl
And sheís down by the river
Itís time to consider
That baby is a sinner
Sheíll 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 lifeís the same again
I canít ask him again,
I should let it go
Thereís a girl, thereís a girl, thereís a girl,
Thereís a girl, sheís face down in the river
04. God and Satan 3:09  
I talk to god as much
As I talk to satan
ĎCause 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 Iím 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
ĎCause this ainít 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 Iím gonna
Ruin your life we walk into the tide
When the seesaw snaps and splinters
Your hand donít come crying to me
Iíll only see your good side
And believe itís a miracle, a miracle

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

This ainít a miracle
This ainít a miracle
05. Born on a Horse 2:49    
I pronounce it aluminium,
ĎCause thereís an i next to the u and m
Now write it down slowly and read it out fast
Sheís got eyes, preposterous eyes
Iíve never had a lover whoís my sister
Or my brother before

Iíve been counting on the wrong things
To make life feel alright
You could be my acid queen
Until the end of time
ĎCause you can have it all,
Youíre stuck in the middle
Raise them one and all,
I was born on a horse thatís all...

I like to think Iím just a thoroughbred,
In all but name and with no horseís flesh
Weíre galloping slowly through this broken glass
Sheís got hooves, preposterous hooves
Iíve never had a lover whoís 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. Stock Shock 3:04    
Well you scratch and you scratch Ďtil 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
Iíll stay numb to these accidents

Well you talk and you talk like youíre trying to shock me
I donít even know what the fuck weíre still arguing about
Maintain my silence

Youíre a shame to your dad Ďcause youíre killing his days
Irresponsible life youíve only yourself to blame
Maintain your friendliness

Youíre wondering why youíre exhausted, exhausted from
Using these lies
Iím sure youíll regress again
Maintain your silence
Iíve been crippled by shock, shocked again
Iíll continue to douse your violence
With kisses of hate and silence
Iíve 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 donít know why
ĎCause when my back is turned
My bruises shine
Our broken fairy tale
So hard to hide

I still believe itís you and me Ďtil the end of time
When we collide we come together
If we donít weíll always be apart
Iíll take a bruise I know youíre worth it
When you hit me hit me hard

Sitting in a wishiní hole
Hoping it stays dry
Feet cast in solid stone
Iíve got Gilliganís eyes
You said love was letting us go against what
Our future is for...
Many of horror our futureís for many of horror
09. Boom, Blast & Ruin 3:16    
Iíve had enough
You burn the bridge Iíll cut the boat in half
Control
Iíve said enough, you keep the secrets I know youíll never spill
Sold
Boom, blast and ruin girl
Causes distractions
Youíre rooted in hell

I canít surprise you girl, the truth is in motion
You cover it well but youíre praying for some action so you wonít
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 morní

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
Thereís a black mould on my frazzled lungs, it whistles
My throat is gone,
Iím still holding on but I donít have long
No I donít have long
ĎCause 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 wonít go where the sun doesnít 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
Weíre bright blue and weíre covered in
Blood
We staggered through the door
Trouble is taking score
12. Whorses 3:54    
Whoís the hippy now,
I cut it off to make you proud
Abuse my limbs until the sun goes down
I donít want to be alone again

Got jesusí autograph,
No handshake or pat on the ass
His saving grace was talking fast,
I donít want to be bored again
Am I ready to take that chance,
Put my faith in someone else

Letís use this dynamite
Weíre only making noises
Iíll 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,
Weíre at the bottom of the cove,
It looked like rain but
It felt like snow
Because wherever we stand,
Weíre at the bottom of the hole
Weíll dig our way out
But weíll still say no

The wound is king and how,
His whorses turn they make him proud,
His visionís clipped like wings and crowns
Letís use this photograph
Heís never even had the chance
To believe in something else

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