Honeyhead 05:40
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.

Lazy Susan 03:28
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

Risk 03:14
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

This ghost 04:41
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

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

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.

Nah Nah Nah 03:27
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

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.
