Track Name: PLANNED DESIGNS
Steel and concrete supports,
Dreams, stretched across like skin,
Oil and plastic daubed thick
Into the weave.

Works of art of nothing,
Works of art from nothing,
Works of art of nothing but works of art.

We want somewhere to play.

I am thinking of aurochs and angels,
The secret of durable pigments,
Prophetic sonnets,
The refuge of art.

We want somewhere to play.
Track Name: SNAPBACK
Took his left foot and placed it in front of his right,
Hands in his pockets,
Steps out into the night,
Head down, eyes won't meet,
Following footsteps,
Try to keep up.
Stiff strides,
Shuffle to the side,
Tell an interesting story,
Blur truth and lies,
Socialise, find common traits,
Hedge your bets and learn to wait.
Wasted,
“Are we just wasted?”
On waiting for anything to feel alive.

We're waiting,
We're waiting for it.
We're waiting.

Whilst walking empty streets he feels at peace.
Imagined purpose proposed inside,
The walls of distraction
Compose the mind.
These routes are no longer free from thought,
Memories daubed on every wall.

Everything is different,
Everything can be changed.
Architecture of Saints remains.
Nothing, will make him feel the same again.
He’s writing books,
No-one will ever read,
Singing songs,
No-one will ever need.

We're waiting,
We're waiting for it.

We’re waiting.
Track Name: PSI GIRLS
You and I,
We share common traits,
Inability to communicate,
Effectively,
It's all just,
Shouted hopes and hushed apologies.
A quiet joke,
A swollen river,
Nearing the mouth of the sea.
Mind and eye,
They see through,
When he dusts off the girls start to sing.

“La La La La La La La La La”

You and I,
We share common traits,
Inabilities
To communicate,
Effectively,
It's all just
Hushed hopes and apologies.
Purposeful,
Complex,
Complete,
I saw that look knowing what it means,
Leader of men.
Invitations lost on,
He dusts off,
The girls start to sing.

“La La La La La La La La La”

You and I,
We share common traits,
C-c-c-c-c-c-common traits.
Just a need,
To communicate.
These, common traits.
Track Name: VISCOUNT DISCOUNT
You're a part of the expensive hum,
Lines you've said a hundred times,
You're not callous, you're just numb.
Scratch away,
I just stare,
You have a job to do why should you care.
Remits,
Compromise,
Boxes to tick,
Straight,
Narrow,
Guidelines, rules,
Cut to fit.
There's a mind just disengaged
And you're a part of the constant grinding machine today.

No Sympathy

Nothing to live for,
Life's a lie,
Dead heart,
Lifeless eyes.
I think,
“What am I?”
A small glitch, a passing moment,
You're a dick,
And I know that you have safely achieved
Nothing,
Nothing is saved,
No goal complete,
Nothing on a chart,
Nothing on a list,
No higher ground,
No granted wish.
No.

No Sympathy.

I've got one thing to say,
don't forget that.
Track Name: HAIRSTYLES
She's just out to explore,
Uncomfortable,
Backed against the wall,
A Filofax full of contacts
And no-one to call.
As she drags her weight through the fray,
She captures looks from nostalgia creeps,
And she's got everything to gain.

"I've been told that this won't work,"
she said,
"But how would I know if I never tried?"
This is the stupidest party
I have ever been to
In all my life.

Her disinterested look,
Through the alcohol and gloom,
Appears as interest
As he bombards her with nonsense,
And makes his move.

"I've been told that this won't work,"
he said,
"But how would I know if I never tried?"
This is the greatest party
I have ever been to
In all my life.

And she says nothing.
And he says nothing.
