Dropping Like Flies They’re dropping like flies, flying like knives, cutting like words from sticky mouths They’re sliding like eyes, wiping their hands, stroking the fear up your spine Go. Go wide, go long. Torch everything They’re on the fence, ducks in a row, cats bagged up ready to watch the show With fuel on the fire it’s anyone’s call, everyone’s blind eye turned to deaf walls Flames up the curtains, treacle down the windows Smoke out the vermin, sticky their fingers Saying your goodbyes Sweet mouths on fire

A Belly Full 02:32
A Belly Full And we’ll wait, baited breath, baiting lines Breathing in tongues and jumping to respond Hook, lies and sinker Just sink in and I see the moon has pulled your face out of shape A debt I’ll never collect But what to do with all the faces when you give up And all the things you’ve tasted are etched in your face Writing lines under your eyes Just line up and I see the moon has pulled your face out of shape A debt I’ll never collect Throwing matches at the sky just to call in the fire A belly full, a belly full Turning sluggishly through time, molecules packed in tight Multiply, multiply Lay your mind down to sleep, leave it there buried deep You won’t need it when you wake Lift your head to the sky, just relax you’ll be fine There won’t ever be a first time again.

I Will Never 02:26
I Will Never I will never find my love There is none Save none Days take you further Lift your head towards the rafters No saviour in the ceiling kicking chairs out I will never meet my maker There is none Save none Days take you further Duck your head under the water No saviour in the bathtub holding heads down

The Accomplice Close your eyes and fall I won’t do you no harm Pull the layers away from your ribcage I’ll reciprocate Hold my breath and sink Hold my soul, hold my sins Hold everything The best that I’ve ever had The sun goes down behind you The best that I’ll ever have The world whirls around you Just close your eyes, take it on faith Let everything else drop away The best that I’ve ever had The sun goes down behind you The best that I’ll ever have The world whirls around you

Of Memory 02:17
Of Memory They’re dropping like flies Hold on Hold on what’s left Lest we forget Should memory leave you nameless I pray I’ll always see your faces Can you feel them slipping away?
