Track Name: friday's pies
friday's pies make up for the rest of the week...
Track Name: unhigh
i don't know why i'm feeling unhigh...
Track Name: wrong side
this is the wrong side, but we can still do this,
we can still do that
Track Name: silverfish
there's sadness where i don't expect it,
but pain where i do,
there's madness when i come to collect it
that'll see me through,
there's a silverfish on my floor
Track Name: reluctant quiver
yes i might jump up, even for that,
why?
i sit down quicker;
please remind me,
i jump back, leave it at that,
put my reluctant quiver behind me...
Track Name: dream on
don't even try to explain,
don't even pretend to wax when you wane
Track Name: take your time
take your time
before it steals your nerve
and washes off your inspiration,
take your time before it slips away,
take your time,
follow every curve away from possible frustration,
you know the way...
Track Name: done here
from a cold distance i see me, helpless,
this pale insistence of decay grows every day...
Track Name: responsible
out of here defending whatever is left of your territory,
out of here pretending that 'cos you are gone that you're gonna be free...
Track Name: bellyflop
i'm getting of your face,
so uninspired by your pace,
i'm in a strange kind of place,
i'll try to stay off your case,
i fall asleep at your wheel,
i nearly weep as i kneel,
i think you know how i feel,
a knife and fork don't make a meal...
Track Name: falling
i stand for nothing but i stood my ground,
i couldn't believe my fighting talk was quite so loud,,
i want for nothing but i want no more sound,
i'm falling and you won't hurt me now...
Track Name: in the back
a quarter past three, i've got water on the knee
and a tree where a foot should be,
a mouth like a chair and mudkissed hair
and eyes like the caspian sea,
dust is rising on top of the hill,
there's a will, there's a way
there's a way, there's a will,
i don't see myself as perfect roadkill,
i spill my voice and i can't clean it up,
no choice but a wish to beam me up,
as i lay in the dirt it hurts to be so bare,
but i can't begin to care,
i tear off a strip of my head,
over there is a ship full of bread,
anywhere is a bit better
than my unravelling gravel bed...
Track Name: astray
this day's gone astray,
my mind won't obey
and i panic if i lose my way,
this days' gone astray,
my white turned to grey,
and my temperature's starting to fray...

and i don't know what to hold on to...
Track Name: stuff
i know my book might not be
the shortest one you could read,
but you've had time enough to learn your stuff...
it might be heavy going
i take a lot of knowing,
but you've had time enough to learn your stuff...
Track Name: rise
take back the life you left behind
