Track Name: Across the Waves
i guess you could call it mine
i'll have no use for it in time
because my friend, it's only temporary
i'll have no use for it in time

you, you are all across the waves
you, you are all across the waves

i guess you could call it mine
we'll have no use for it in time
because my friend, it's only temporary
we'll have no use for it in time

you, you are all across the waves
you, you are all across the waves
you, you are all across the waves
you, you are all across the waves

you, you... (are all across the waves)

(words by Ian M.)
Track Name: Anyone
i'm so tired of making bad mistakes
i'm so tired it's making me feel weak
we've been through what no one can imitate
i've missed you so let's make this evening great

and if i can't be with you i can't be with anyone
and if i can't see this through i can't be with anyone

now i'm wired without a reason to stay
on hang wire without your reasoning
we've been through and through and through
and through it all before
if it's true, our love will weather the storm

and if i can't be with you i can't be with anyone
and if i can't see this through i can't be with anyone
and if i can't be with you i can't be with anyone
and if i can't see this through i can't be with anyone

anyone, anyone

(solo)

i'm so tired of making bad mistakes

and if i can't be with you i can't be with anyone
and if i can't see this through i can't be with anyone
and if i can't be with you i can't be with anyone

anyone, anyone
anyone, anyone
anyone, anyone
anyone, anyone

Track Name: Evil Twin
evil twin
kept him in
translucent

would you stay if i said how much
would you stay if we kept in touch
would you stay if it's never enough

you should know
they're gonna try to push you
and even if they make it seem surrounding
they're gonna try to push you around

evil twin
this just in
good won't win

would you stay if i said how much
would you stay if we kept in touch
would you stay if it's never enough

you should know
they're gonna try to push you
and even if they make it seem surrounding
they're gonna try to push you around

they're gonna try to push you around
they're gonna try to push you around
they're gonna try
they're gonna try to push you around

(words by Ian M.)
Track Name: Favorite Words
when no one wants you, no one's there
there's a voice inside that leaves you
when you snap at me, and no one's there
you're the last to know and first to share

all your favorite words
at the pendulum's curve

when no one wants you, you declare
your favorite word becomes the absent glare
when you snap at me, and no one's there
you're the last to know and first to share

all your favorite words
at the pendulum's curve
all your favorite words
construct your negative turns

when no one wants you, no one's there
there's a voice inside that leaves you
when you snap at me, and no one's there
you're the last to know and first to share

all of your favorite words
at the pendulum's curve
all your favorite words
construct your negative turns

keep saying no
keep saying no
keep saying no
keep saying no

keep saying no
keep saying no
keep saying no
keep saying no

keep saying no
keep saying no
keep saying no
keep saying no

(words by Ian M.)
Track Name: Interference
did i say it was okay in here
still i find it hard to disappear
disconnected by the atmosphere
did i say it was okay in here

it's been interference
it's been interference, oh
it's been interference

all damn day

did i say it was okay in here
still i find it might have interfered
disconnected by the atmosphere
did i say it was okay in here

it's been interference
it's been interference, oh
it's been interference

all damn day

it's been interference
it's been interference, oh
it's been interference

all damn day

(words by Ian M.)
Track Name: Let's Go with Alice
send this to sleep again
it's all that i needed
ask yourself to begin
slow and creeping seasons

you waited all night long
you let it all sink in
left us all interested
don't turn your back again

touch it before it's stolen
as if it had a place
you never gave it credit
funny you stole the stains

come on let's go with Alice
and leave this phoney palace
come on let's go with Alice
"just became you when you left"

come on let's go with Alice
and leave this phoney phallus
come on let's go with Alice
"just became you when you left"

(words by Ian M.)
Track Name: Shapeless & Round
and it starts again
blowing backwards
and it feels of rust and the cold

and it starts again
flowing backwards
and it soaks us all to the bone

if they ask you once..

i've worn the ring out
turn to me now
(we're) safe inside out
shapeless and round

and it draws us in
foaming sketches
and it strips us of every coat

and it stops just to
wait and listen
while we start to collapse and unfold

if they ask you once

i've worn the ring out
turn to me now
(we're) safe inside out
shapeless and round

so safe and sound
so safe and sound
so safe and sound
so safe and sound

(hoo hoo, hoo hoo..)

and it starts again
blowing backwards
and it feels of rust and the cold

if they ask you once..

i've worn the ring out
turn to me now
(we're) safe inside out
shapeless and round

(words by Ian M.)
Track Name: Shebore
baby, you're as gone as gone can be
you're a wrinkle in time you set the rhyme that held me
baby, you're as gone as gone can be
you're a wrinkle in time you walked the line and hurt me

shebore, shebore she's out the door
she poured it out for me
shebore, shebore she's out for more
she poured it out for me

baby, you're as far as stars can be
you're a wrinkle in time you set the line that held me

shebore, shebore she's out the door
she poured it out for me
shebore, shebore she's out for more
she poured it out for me

where did you go, where did you go
you gave me something to look toward
where did you go, where did you go, where did you go

where did you go, where did you go
you taught me that i could look forward
where did you go, where did you go, where did you go

where did you go, where did you go
you gave me something to look towards
where did you go, where did you go, where did you go

where did you go, where did you go
you gave me something to look for
where did you go, where did you go, where did you go

(words by Ian M.)
