Track Name: The Eagles on Your Eyelids
I saw the eagles on your eyelids fly away
And are the devils in your suitcase here to stay?
I was alone when I met you and I'm alone now that you have gone away

I saw strange elements were creeping through your dreams
And are the pages of your notebook filled with leaves?
I was alone when I met you and I'm alone now that you have gone away
Track Name: What is Fear?
And what is fear?
Well it's time
Don't let it break your heart
And what is fate?
Well it's time
Don't we all fall apart?

And I was on the way, I was on the way
To find myself an easier path
And I was on the way, I was on the way

And what of love?
This time
Don't lose it in the dark
And what of tears?
This time
They fall on every spark

And I was on the way, I was on the way
To find myself an easier path
And I was on the way, I was on the way
Track Name: The Moon & The Gate
Well the wind in the trees from the westerly breeze brought sadness
And the moon at the gate where the souls separate shone sadness
Would you believe it, if I said?

Well the blistering seas made a devil of me such sadness
And the stories you told made my body grow cold such sadness
Would you believe it, if I said?
Track Name: The Lions' Den (Clappy Song)
Those people left you lying there right in the lions' den
They martyred you then bartered until there was nothing left
Light a candle for them when you go to bed
You can hate the ones who hurt you when you're dead

Your argument though elegant soon fell upon deaf ears
They shut you out then fell about your laughter turned to tears
Light a candle for them when you go to bed
You can hate the ones who hurt you when you're dead
Track Name: The Thread (Cat Bag)
Blue is the colour you said for picking away at the threads
That once in your life when you cut like a knife
We all should have noticed it then

And all that you are x4
Gets carried away x4
Track Name: The Islands of Japan
Far under the ocean deep under the sand
Hiding from the dragons on the islands of Japan
Written on the cloud banks scattered by the wind
I was in the audience when Lincoln sprouted wings

And you see that I believe in dreams
But I don't know what this one means

Summer brings the autumn, autumn starts to freeze
A cylclone's a catastrophe a breeze is just a wind
And winter is a devil bringing in the spring
A hurricane may have an eye but it can't see a thing

And you see that I believe in dreams
But I don't know what this one means
Track Name: Oh Bury Me
I walked a while until I saw the colour of the dawn
You slept a long time in the car and didn't see at all
I'll go to sleep where rainbows creep into the dusty hall
The piano sings until it brings some peace unto us all

Oh bury me where I once roamed
Wrapped up in amber
Under snow

I sat a while until I saw the things I saw before
You staggered clear and did not fear the knocking on the door
Well let them wait and until they wake and see the sun once more

Oh bury me where I once roamed
Wrapped up in amber
Under snow
Track Name: Twisting the Gears
Forward the years, twisting the gears
It seems like all of us are dead in here
Catapult clear, free from all fear
Into some edifice miles from here

And do you mind it

They had a house, a dog to look out
For all the burglars skulking about
Five equals five, heavens alive
It seems so obvious time after time

And do you mind it

I saw the note that you left at the top of the stair
It read like a dream an escape from the stifling air
Track Name: I Saw the Light
Please don't let me down
When the colours fade
In the deepest night
Where the shadows graze

I saw the light but it didn't seem quite right
And now it's fading dear
Track Name: I Know
I know that the water around me is pulling me under
And it shows that I'll have to swim if I want to wash up on the shore
Sundays turn into Mondays and Mondays turn into them all
And I know that a lung full of water is nothing compared to what I,
Saw this morning
Sunshine just brings me the end of the day
Saw this morning
Sleeps gonna collect me and take me away

I know that the eyes in my head will be burning to ashes so
I'll go and leave before everything crashes and falls to the floor
And someday I'll look and see that this whole mess meant nothing at all
And I know that a lung full of water is nothing compared to what I,
Saw this morning
Sunshine just brings me the end of the day
Saw this morning
Sleeps gonna collect me and take me away
Track Name: Happy as a Lamb
Happy as a lamb you see now everybody knows
Now I'm like an island lying out there on my own
Spend time with small crustaceans
Watching tidal fluctuations
I'm so glad now everybody knows

I walk out with my head high now everybody knows
Stepping over mountainsides through pyroclastic flows
We don't talk for hours and hours
When October turns to showers
We will always be the last ones home

Will you be happy now
Will you be happy now our life seems so much faster

Happy as a captain when the wind begins to blow
Happy as an icicle caught sleeping in the snow
On a Sunday let's repent
I might give you up for lent
I'm so glad now everybody knows


Will you be happy now
Will you be happy now our life seems so much faster
Track Name: Seven Hours
Seven hours ago
Seven hours ago
Was it even real
Only you could know

Seven days ago
Seven days ago
Was it even real
Only you could know
