Track Name: echo baby
You're feeling low, like a clown
Spawn the thoughts of a demeaning mind
A slur on your own design yet you
Butt and hold and pray you'll stand
You're about to slump down on the ground yet
Up you go, out you go,
Out you go on to defy the blankness of your mind
Swing that hip from side to side
Ignore the tweak and take the bribe

You're feeling low, like a clown
Most people are purring around there's
Buxom girls and skinny guys flirting
Yet you're bolt upright
Can't you swing that hip from side to side
Ignore the tweak, take the bribe
Smuggle down a drink or two and
Breathe in my guitar
Track Name: dancefloor
LYRICS
You come to me late at night
So close to my body it feels so right
Spill sweet words down my ear tube
Some sweet but most completely rude

Turns out your breath is a little smelly
Turns out the words you say don't make no sense
Failing to arouse a feel in my belly
You're way off target yet full of confidence

I told you once, just drop it
I'm tell'n you twice now please forget it
I'm tell'n you thrice now will you leave it there
Track Name: shake off your monster
LYRICS
Forecast is of a stormy sea
Am tacking through gushing waves already
The crabs are cowering back to the cave
I'd better call what's mine back to haven

Flaundering in my misery
I'd sell my mother for stability
No matter how open is the sea
I'm stewing in mediocrity

Push follow the order
Pull carry on mister
Haul your head above water
Shake off your monster

Howl follow the order
Push carry on mister
Pull your head above water
Shake off your monster

Push follow the order
Pull carry on mister
Haul your head above water
Shake off your monster

Rise follow the order
Howl carry on mister
Raise your head above water
Shake off your monster

LYRICS
Each and Everyone
Is trapped in a birdcage
Rustles up a dress of hide
To size a snarling rage
Paint it blue or paint it black
Lest the soot collect
Upon the Cogs in the Wheels
That work my truth erect
Let across the puckered gown
Of all shams and pretence
The prowling wolf will come to ground
And word out his penance
Grab his sorry paw
Climb onto his back
Adjust the robe to both of you
And care to leave some slack
Track Name: you'll go
LYRICS
I think you'll go
To find another place
I think it shows
On the lines of your face

And no, it's not that i don't
Want to hold you near
It's just that i won't
Consider you as my teddy bear

I think you'll go

I think you'll go
You need more than one bay
Won't be long yo
Untill you leave the docks and swim away

It's not that i don't
Want to hold you near
It's just that i won't
Consider you as my teddy bear

I think you'll go
Track Name: it's over
LYRICS
Now it's been a while, dear Pupeteer
You've had me dance around
and make a fool of myself
Come on let's be fair, I've wanted to lay down
Dear Pupeteer, but you won't let me rest
But you won't let me rest

It's over
Better close it down now it's over

Dear Puppet you are not
A fool of any kind
I'm only here to keep you safe
I'm your devoted servant
Believe me, there's no lie
It's all true I'll die for sure
If you don't commit to me

It's over
Better close it down now it's over

LYRICS
Pick a colour
Choose a side
Favour the one you like
Pick a flavour
Blend it right
Wear it right well in sight
If your endeavour
Comes out on strike
Pick up a slower stride
Find a harbour
Settle down
Lie fallow on your ground
Pick a colour
Choose a side
Favour the one you like
Weave a banner
Make it bright
Hold it up well in sight
Pick a colour
Pick a colour
Pick a colour
Choose a side
Favour the one you like
