Track Name: Honeyhead
Fate fill the cavity, I feel the gravity
Love the depravity, Honeyhead
Fill with adrenalin, bursting up to the brim
built for adultering, Honeyhead

Sat through a civil war, messed you up more and more,
this treatment you abhor, Honeyhead
Float on a bag of air, bobbing your body bare,
Down to your underwear, Honeyhead.

All your family and your friends

Burn in a silver pot, cooking whatever you've got to be worth a lot, Honeyhead
Ending the verse is hard. Almost as is to start over again at heart, Honeyhead.

All your family and your friends.
Track Name: Lazy Susan
You've been hiding in the wings
You've seen a lot of little things
It's not hard to see one side.

You never suffered from the stage
a little innocent for your age,
a little brittle baby

You've been a little lazy Susan,
and I've been having doubts,
when you open your confusing mouth
but you don't make a sound

I am a switch that you can throw
I will illuminate your soul
I'm feeling a little less in control.
Over interest, undercharged,
even the winner comes in last.
This is unraveling far too fast

You've been a little lazy Susan
and I've been having doubts,
when you open your confusing mouth
when you turn around.

You can see, as time goes past
that nothing really changes

You've been a little lazy Susan
and I've been having doubts
when you open your confusing mouth
and nothing good comes out
Track Name: Risk
So if you don't mind I will take the chance
Put your money down, hope I won't be last
And it may be more than I prefer to lose
To enjoy the spark, you gotta risk the fuse

Over-running cups, underwritten lies
One decision wrong, twice bitten shy
Sweet note conceived, undelivered mail
Unknown love, newborn and frail

I'm gonna win this time, the decision is mine
I can feel the luck, got the golden touch
I can taste success, see your summer dress
On my lounge room floor, where you let it fall

These empty words used up your air
Closed up your eyes; a suffocated stare
I will let it roll, I will let it ride
Betting on a wave, against the tide

I'm gonna win this time, the decision is mine
I can feel the luck, got the golden touch
I can taste success, see your summer dress
On my lounge-room floor, where you let it fall
Track Name: This ghost
There's a light left on
at the end of the hall
and the wind keep banging
the shutters around
I keep pretending I don't care

Well the branches claw
At the melted glass
In the walls of this aching hive
You can tell there's more
Than the ceiling and the floor
Keeping us safe inside.

This ghost, visitor or host
no-one can decide
so strange how people fade away
something stays behind
you can hear it in the washing line

The room is warm
There's a picture in the hall
That I don't remember hanging
If you look too close
At the colours that they chose
You get a chill wherever you're standing

The room if filled with things
I don't remember bringing in
They all look so familiar
Though I sleep all right
Every other night
I'm woken by the dream of a killer
Track Name: Franklin Road
Easy now, soft under red flowers
Franklin Road, I can see you now
Simple, if I'm truthful you might have stayed
just how we all remember
Franklin Road, shone right down, lit up market square
This is something we created.

Be so nice you just can't handle it
The neon night, the smiles and the tears.
Traffic is slow on Franklin Road
At least the pictures last all year

Classic cars, coloured bars underneath our feet
not hard to be somebody you don't like
Taken in by the simple shapes
Oh, God forgive me.
Don't deserve to be lit up, there's a constant fear.
You know we could slip right back.

Be so nice you just can't handle it
The neon night, the smiles and the tears.
Traffic is slow on Franklin Road
At least the pictures last all year

It's all they have to keep them on track
You're all invited back, unless you make plans, we understand.

Be so nice you just can't handle it
The neon night, the smiles and the tears.
Traffic is slow on Franklin Road
At least the pictures last all year
Track Name: If you feel strong
Do you come down a lot?
Are you in shock from landing?
The lessons were awfully long
You're made dumb by understanding

We hope that you have enjoyed our company
I'd like to climb in and out of your extremes
Some seasons don't seem to change us any more
I'll be amazed if these are changes we have seen before

So smooth the razor's edge
I'm feeling no vibration
Watching through peeping holes
Listening in violation

We see you open yourself inside your room
Have you no shame to do everything you do
My mother said that you never ever should
See for yourself what you know is no good


If you feel strong, you can hold me in your arms
If you feel strong, there's nothing you can't handle

Turn the healing into scars, place the pollen into the flowers
From your head down to your sandals
Melt the surface, melt the mantle,

Melt the core of me
You have left me with your leaving,
and I'm through with the deceiving,
and you know that if you fall for me,
I may move from where you're landing,
and at the impact I'll be standing on my own.


If you feel strong, you can hold me in your arms
If you feel strong, there's nothing you can't handle

Turn the healing into scars, place the pollen into the flowers
From your head down to your sandals
Melt the surface, melt the mantle, melt the core.
Track Name: Nah Nah Nah
Sounds like something you're unlikely to hear
Take a direction no normally steered
Correct an error not normally noticed
Tell me that it isn't, when everybody knows it is.

Maybe you try Harder than I could expect

Taste the sugar before you taste the salt
Tell me that you're sorry when you know it's my fault
You're cold sober but you fall to the floor
Looking for a doorway when there isn't a wall

Maybe you try harder than I could expect
With an atlas of lines on your face
With a sunrise of hope in your smile
And too many voices in space

You think you're funny for a little too long
Sharply in focus with the lens cap still on
We are invisible with ice skates on gravel
We all come with you whenever you travel
Track Name: Problem dancer
I fell out of love too late
My dream like an empty gun
Five degrees of desire surround you
Tempted by this constant tension

How deceitful were my motives
Fly above me, and all our problems
Dark angel, hellish timing
Easy answer, problem dancer

I was given no fear of falling
I could tell you the deepest truth
I never was so distracted
Non-believer, I see you now

We know you with no protection
I see you as so much more
If ever you are uncertain
This problem will make you sure.
