Track Name: Fool Like Me
I take a day to appreciate you
To take you in in all your beauty
I watch you I’m nervous,
You’re walking towards me
And I will take your hand and walk with you.
I fear you’re wasted, your beauty wasted
Perfection wasted on a fool like me.
From our first glance, I was captured
All I ask is that you’ll never set me free.

On this day I understand why
Every head turns in the moment you walk by.
You watch me I’m breathless,
You’ve witnessed my darkest
Loved me through the things I couldn’t hide.
I fear you’re wasted, your beauty wasted
Perfection wasted on a fool like me.
From our first glance, I was captured
All I ask is that you’ll never set me free.

I got to lock the gate you’re at my door
The deeper that you see the more I’m sure
Love was never true until I felt it for you.

I fear you’re wasted, your beauty wasted
Perfection wasted on a fool like me.
From our first glance, I was captured
All I ask is that you’ll never set me free.
All I ask is that you’ll never set me free.
Track Name: Thunder and Rain
Thunder, thunder and rain
Flick of a switch and lightning courses through cloud veins.
Thunder keeping me sane,
Rumbling through my mind shutting open doors,
Thunder and rain.

Listen to the pulse of the rain gently falling,
Sing with the howl of the winds reverie
Answer the plea of the seas gentle calling
Amidst all this chaos is where I want to be.

Thunder pounding the sky,
Beat of a drum resonating like a monsters cry.
Thunder, thunder and light
Making sure that no one has any peaceful dreams tonight.

Listen to the pulse of the rain gently falling,
Sing with the howl of the winds reverie
Answer the plea of the seas gentle calling
Amidst all this chaos is where I want to be.

And I will traipse through the wet, wet grass to get a little closer
Rain refracts like molten glass, I’ve got to get closer.
The danger is so sweet.
Oh the danger is so sweet!

Thunder and rain. Thunder and rain.
Track Name: Yesterday Today
Last weeks end and this weeks beginning
Meld to one boring pie with no filling
Tastelessly flavourless, circle that’s centreless
Luckily boredom ain’t prone to bulk billing.
Yesterdays news is todays social highlight
Keeping my mind entertained through to twilight
Yesterdays history keeping my sanity
Same hook for the same fish to bite.

I like yesterday better that today,
It always looks better when the endings already played.
Shoot myself in the foot so I can stay in bed.
Maybe i’m too lazy to get off my hiney and
Jump in the gene pool to make some waves, ey.

I wake up late to make sure I feel awake,
Wasting the morning to savour the day
My insignificance caused by my selfishness
Feel hopelessness wash me away.


I like yesterday better that today,
It always looks better when the endings already played.
Shoot myself in the foot so I can stay in bed.
Maybe i’m too lazy to get off my hiney and
Jump in the gene pool to make some waves, ey.

Oh won’t someone notice me, won’t someone carry me,
Feel I’m cast in some social parody
Every line spoken a mirror is broken,
Maybe it’s time that I throw off my fears.


I like yesterday better that today,
It always looks better when the endings already played.
Shoot myself in the foot so I can stay in bed.
Maybe i’m too lazy to get off my hiney and
Jump in the gene pool to make some waves, ey.
Track Name: Undone
I waved goodbye to someone,
Watching him carrying away my heart in his bag,
I hid it in his suitcase
Hoping one day he would return to bring it back.

Oh --- I miss you, whether an hour or a day
Oh --- I miss you, you’ve taken my heart far away.

Here in a crowd I am swimming through silence,
Wishing I was in a dream so I’d hold to your ghost,
Gravity far behind us,
Holding everything back so you’d appear close

Never would, I believe, I could feel, incomplete,
Here I am watching the clock tick on I’m,
Holding on, tryna push, lean on time, make it rush
All the while knowing my heart is coming undone.

Oh --- I miss you, whether an hour or a day
Oh --- I miss you, you’ve taken my heart far away.

Never would, I believe, I could feel, incomplete,
Here I am watching the clock tick on...
Track Name: Drink of the Rain
Admit defeat, the battle is over
You lost your seat to daisies and clover.
Bow your knee, dust off your shoulder
There’s some things that you need to discover for yourself.

Drink of the Rain, let it cleanse you of yourself.
Swallow your pain, for in your weakness you will find your wealth.

In your defeat, I’ve seen your victory.
Rest your feet. You’ve been running so long you don’t know what you’re running from.

Mourn with the sunshine, rejoice in the grey
Shout in the valley “Let’s begin our yesterday”.

Lay down your crown, I’ll show you your kingdom
What you’ve found is a treasure far too heavy for your burdened heart,
With which you cannot part.

Drink of the Rain, let it cleanse you of yourself.
Swallow your pain, for in your weakness you will find your wealth.
Track Name: Rumours
Cover my ears I don’t want to hear anymore.
Lies upon lies, credibility thrown out the door.
How am I meant to believe that one so close to me
Could commit the ultimate betrayal.
And how can I question a love, the only love I’ve known?
Is my doubt in fact betrayal?

Cover my eyes, can’t handle this sight anymore.
Strobed silhouettes turning pirouettes around my already dizzy mind.
They move in untraceable steps, I try to forget
These rumours that poison my perceptions.
They feed my fears for the worst,
I can’t breathe cause it hurts.
I fell for their deception.
I fell, I fell, I fell for their deceptions.
I fell, I fell, I fell for their deceptions.
Thought I’d be stronger, thought I’d be wiser.
I fell to the lies that compromise us,
I fell for their deception.

Cover my mouth as poison seeps out from my teeth.
Accusations cast, all trust is lost and I’m only one sentence deep.
My tongue is a viper at best, an uninvited guest
In this moment of hearing your perspective.
I see the pain it inflicts, the love it constricts.
Is my anger but subjective?
Track Name: My Only
I was entranced by you, caught in a dance with you
Easily lit by a spark, a romance.
You were in awe of me, fell to the core of me
Said you were sure we could fall even more.

But I, I feared you would steal me
Oh I, I thought you’d conceal me
No I never thought we could be.

You are my only, part of my story
I cannot dream beyond you.
You have inspired me, helped to untie me
How could I dream beyond you?

Here we are entwined in action and in mind
I find I can’t define the line between self
Fighting the incline to fast redraw the lines
Before I forget where my walls used to lie

You are my only, part of my story
I cannot dream beyond you.
You have inspired me, helped to untie me
Why would I dream beyond you?

I was – cautious – little – nauseous
Something – told me – don’t give in to this
Fighting – my mind – rather – be blind
Than to – live in total irrational fear.

You are my only, part of my story
How could I dream beyond you?
You have inspired me, helped to untie me
I cannot dream beyond you.
Track Name: Thinking of You
Water trickling down my window,
Skies grey canvas has soaked through.
I am warm and I am happy.
Tucked in my blankets, thinking of you.

Steam is dancing from my teacup,
Shadows lurk as shadows do.
I’m not sad, I’m not lonely.
In my own world thinking of you.

No reality can distract me,
You’re a mist before my eyes,
You’re running through my mind, uncontrollable.
Every moment is greater with you,
Every dull grey has now turned a sky blue
And I’m dancing in a daydream thinking of you.

Now the moments just beginning,
Yesterday is but a thought
You’re my tomorrow, you’re my today.
Scetching with crayons. Thinking of you.
Track Name: Hey Peter
Hey Peter, Waddaya say
Lets run from here so we can play
And I don't mind if you say it was your idea.
Take me to Never Land
For this is not what I had planned
And we'll stay young forever

Why don’t we find a tree
Sit beneath the falling leaves
Catch the rain upon our tongues
As it tries to steal the sun
Why don’t we play hide & seek
While we’re small enough to
Sneak amongst the trees.

Hey Peter, lets bring our friends
It’s much more fun when games are shared
And I might even let them try some cake
We’ll dig our toes in the grass
And laugh at how we always laugh
And everyone will feel alive

Why don’t we find a tree
Sit beneath the falling leaves
Catch the rain upon our tongues
As it tries to steal the sun
Why don’t we play hide & seek
While we’re small enough to
Sneak amongst the trees.

Hey Peter, I’m getting old
Don’t let them lock me in a home
We can run away to Neverland
I know my memories no good
I forgot where we left the food
But do we care?

Why don’t we find a tree
Sit beneath the falling leaves
Catch the rain upon our tongues
As it tries to steal the sun
Why don’t we play hide & seek
While we’re small enough to
Sneak amongst the trees.
Track Name: Precipitate
This doesn’t have a name, and neither do I
No sought after fame, Just tryna get by
For heaven I reach, my toe dipped in hell,
Face down on the beach as I fall through the swell

Dropped from the clouds I thought that I
Was destined to more than the world could provide
Make my reflection, I sit and stare
At all I am not.

I’m left with a choice, I’d rather not make
To open my voice, or to drown in the shade
With the others who gave
Their freedom away.

Dropped from the clouds I thought that I
Was destined to more than the world could provide
Make my reflection, I sit and stare
At all I’ve become.

Drop from the clouds, see all I am not
Like the rain falls on the ground.

Drop from the clouds, now I decide,
Whether I’ll fall to the earth where I’ll dry
Or will I glide, like the first snow.
We must all precipitate - how will you fall?
