Track Name: Disconnect
Black circles in your eyes
In waiting, still waiting
Disconnect from this light
All waiting, still waiting in here
In here, but you’re not here

This dry spell so choking
Suffocate, slowly
Disaffect, drown in lies
All drowning, still drowning in here
In here, but you're not here
In here, in here, but you’re not here

All these years 
Still seeking some love in these eyes
All these years
Still chained to no love in these eyes

Disconnect, disconnect the love in these eyes
Disconnect, disconnect the love in these
Disconnect, disconnect the love

Disconnect, disconnect the love
Track Name: Any Old Saint
I wanna find a drug
I wanna find fate
I wanna find truth
I wanna find a saint
I wanna feel numb
I wanna not succumb
Wanna not hate
Wanna find a saint
Any old saint

I wanna find love
I wanna see your face
I wanna be a drunk
I wanna get a taste
I wanna not hide
I wanna not divide
Wanna find a saint
Any old saint

We fight and give way
We fight and give way

I wanna be your drug
I wanna be your fate
I wanna be the truth
I wanna be your saint
I wanna not lie
I wanna not divide
Wanna find a saint
Any old saint

We fight and give way
We fight and give way
Track Name: Once A Warrior
Once I was tall, straight and kind
Like a man that still believes in heaven
Once I was full of luck 
And all the dice I ever rolled came up seven
But in the end all the big men are broken

Once I was full of love and hope 
And the strength that comes from “together”
Once I was so powerful and sure
That all of this would be forever
But in the end all big men are broken
I once was a warrior

Once I was a trusted man with no 
promises unbroken
Once I was not alone, not unloved 
Not bathed in apologies unspoken
But in the end all the good men are broken
I once was a warrior

Once I was
Once I was drowned in the echoes
Of all of our words unspoken
But in the end both of us were broken
I once was a warrior
Track Name: Window
I am not well
I’m not how I used to be
Seems I’ve stumbled and I fell
Better roll down a window 
I think I wanna get out

We are not fair 
Not how we used to be
Have we lost the capacity to care
Better roll down a window 
I think I wanna get out

We’ve driven past the signs 
Much too far for you and I
For there will be no possession
Yes there will be no possession
I think I’d better get out

We could just dream
Pretend we are as we used to be
We could just roll down a window
We could just roll down a window
I think I’d better get out

We could just roll down a window
We could just roll down a window
Track Name: Gets You Every Time
If you ever want
If you ever need
If you ever feel the tentacles of greed
Easy to succumb
Easy not to try
Easy to ignore the rationale of why

Sometimes when we want
Sometimes when we breathe
Choke up on the elements 
The elements of need

Haunted by a soul
Guilty by design
Held down by the self contempt
It gets you every time
Gets you every time

I leave it up to you
To get the nerve to fly
Caught up in the elements 
The elements of why
Everywhere you turn
Everywhere you hide
Keep it locked inside of you 
It gets you every time

When the nail finds the hole
It gets you every time

I leave it up to you 
To get the nerve to fly
So caught up in yourself
You never even try
Everywhere you turn
Everywhere you hide
Keep it locked inside of you
It gets you every time
Track Name: Mary Will
Try to squeeze the light
Out of the morning
Can’t face the flood
Can’t face the calling
It’s been two years
Maybe longer
Face up to this
Make you stronger

Things you’ve done you’ve done
No taking it back
Things done can’t be undone
You done crossed that track
She won’t stand for you 
She won’t stand for you

She wont let it go
She’s so had her fill
If she won’t forgive

Maybe Mary will

Mary’s hiding there
In the roses
Stone white faded grey
Just behind the hoses

She stayed till her son was gone
Mary never moved
Just like she’s done for him
Maybe she’d do for you
Maybe Mary will stand for you
Maybe Mary will stand for you

In the cleansing rain
You stand by her
In the Roses
Miracles will occur
Never to forgive
Never yourself
Not even Mary’s son
Dared to offer help     
Maybe Mary will stand for you
Maybe Mary will stand for you
Maybe Mary will have a word for you
Track Name: Take What You Need
We leave the past alone
Turned from an obstinate stone
One by one through one into one we slide

We lead a desperate life
A love that will not requite
One by one through one into one we slide

Take what you need and don’t look back
Take what you need


All of us like the feel, like the deal of a love when it’s alright
All of us close the eyes, feign surprise, suck up lies like it’s alright
All of us pick the side, pretend and hide, take a cut like it’s alright
All of us stare at the sun, blind for one, come undone when it’s not right

Take what you need and don’t look back
Take what you need

We leave the best behind
Onward we charge blind
One by one through one into one we slide
Take what you need and don’t look back
Take what you need

All of us like the feel, like the deal of a love when it’s alright
All of us close the eyes, feign surprise, suck up lies like it’s alright
All of us pick the side, pretend and hide, take a cut like it’s alright
All of us stare at the sun, blind for one, come undone when it’s not right

Take what you need and don’t look back
Take what you need and don’t look back
Take what you need

Take what you need and don’t look back
Take what you need and don’t look back
Take what you need
Track Name: How Goes The War
Hey, I ride the waves
I rule the seas 
From my TV

Hey, I am a king
I make my own worlds
They are for me

So, how goes the war?
How go your days?
They slip away
And we all want a piece
We find no peace
It slips away

Hey, did you meet my friends?
I make my friends
They are like me

Hey, I’ve no concerns
I never earn
It all comes free

So, how goes the war?
How go your days?
They slip away
And we all want a piece
We find no peace
It slips away

So, how goes your war?
How go your days?
They slip away
And we all want a piece
But find no peace 
It slips away
Track Name: A New Life in Old Sweat
First the right then the left one in front of me
Single steps, baby steps 
Twelve steps down on your knees
Begging your god to please come save you

Periods of clarity they wash over me
Just a haze of the days worth remembering
Well too many of those days fail to surface

Fly me a flag I can see
Yes, I’m over this
Barely a day goes free
God, I’m over this
Holding my hand to the fire
Just to feel some light

If ever you dare come back know I’m over this
You’ve only to feel my hand
No more the fist
Raining down more regret than a man should bear
Waking up in cold sweat
Want to touch your hair

Got me a new life
Got me new life
Same old sweat
Want a new life
Got me a new life 
Same old sweat
Same old sweat

Step number nine was a day worth remembering
Awoke alive in the hope you’d forgiven me
The sound of unanswered rings
The sound of unanswered rings
Deafening

Got me a new life
Got me new life
Same old sweat
Want a new life
Got me a new life 
Same old sweat
Same old sweat
Track Name: Satellite
When I wake to darkened skies
I tell myself all the little lies

Lies that make us whole again
The ones that help us carry on and just pretend

When I stare into the night
I see you there as a satellite

Out of reach up in the sky
Never touching down and you’ll never try

Better just a dream you are
A satellite lost among the stars
Better just a dream you stay
Better if we just, if we just look away

Better just a dream you stay
Better if we just, if we just look away
