Track Name: Resonance
Relay the message and the beating drum
And tell the city that it can't begin
The radio and the satellite sun
The silence will come rushing in

It resonates through
The people you once knew
It resonates through you

Cancel the party and the long parade
And post the good times in the lost and found
Suspend searching for the plans you made
For everything is closing down

It resonates through
The people you once knew
It resonates through you

Outlaw the future and let all time slow
Inform the papers of the latest craze
The television and the radio
Are counting down the last few days
Track Name: Descending
Late night in the office
And your head among the bones
Of all the in-trays and the out-trays
Typewriters and telephones
And through a window, flickering
Below the neon signs
We are ordinary people
These are ordinary times

But hey, how did we get so lonely?
How did we get so blue?

Bird of prey descending
Over railway lines and towns
And my city skin is aching now
For country hand-me-downs
And the gutters become rivers
Under trees of pylon lines
We are ordinary people
These are ordinary times

But hey, how did we get so lonely?
How did we get so blue?

Airplanes are moaning
Carving ribbons in the blue
We watch the ghost ship of the morning
Drifting slowly into view
And the telephones start ringing
As the funeral bells chime
We are ordinary people
These are ordinary times

But hey, how did we get so lonely?
How did we get so blue?
Track Name: Toffee Apples
Clear nights and candyfloss
Bonfires to silhouette awkward days
Clown playing, hiding your mixed up emotions
And passion plays

Toffee apples, as sweet as before
But you don't like sweet things anymore

Dreams and red admirals
Circle the lonely house in your heart
Winter rips through you
The last days of summer lie blown apart

Toffee apples, as sweet as before
But you don't like sweet things anymore
Track Name: Book Thieving
From floor to ceiling, I travel your aisles
Fictions, philosophies, in many styles
Driven to own every word ever said
All that I wanted, most left unread
Too clever to get caught, but a fool's life I led
Book thieving

Here is your beauty and here is my crime
A love finger bitten and concealed in rhyme
All corners folded and margins inscribed
An endless unlocking of all that's inside
I'm hopeless but i'm swept away with the tide
Of book thieving

In the poetry section, I will make my selection
Wave security cameras and store detectives
Goodbye

I'm a magician, a sleight of hand star
Deep are my pockets and i'm faster than a car
And if you had seen all the streets that I crossed
Seeking out volumes, forsaking the cost
Then you would know that i really am lost to
Book thieving
Track Name: Fly
Summer weather
Young boy on a railway line
No one lasts forever
And you're busy using up your time
You're busy using up your time

Summer burning
Something made the game bird fly
Hours busy turning
Vapour trails across a clear blue sky
Don't stop and watch the world roll by
Don't stop and watch the world roll by

Oh your father wept
And your mother kept
All the clothes in which you last slept

Summer waning
In the shadows and the evening song
Soon it will be raining
In a world to which you don't belong
How long it seems since you've been gone
How long it seems since you've been gone
Track Name: Lost
Typewriter ribbon is bleeding again
Weeping for the letters it's reading again
Late night traffic lights blink their eyes
Rain on the pavement, railway lines
Radio station giving up the ghost
The milk and the paper and the morning post
Lost, like you to me

The ghost of the summer is flying again
Visiting the old school and crying again
Dull pain, first love's constant ache
Stellar echoes that you just can't shake
Sad things built to an old design
Beat in the heart for a long, long time
Lost, like you to me
Track Name: Blue
Far from the honey and the wine
We tore up summers through the fields
On borrowed bicycles and time
Playing cards pegged to our wheels

Over the railway lines we leaned
And shared our cigarettes and toys
On playground roundabouts we dreamed
Our last few days of being boys

Winter and the sun won't shine
Ghost ship on a lonely sea
Brother we ran out of time
Can you cross an ocean blue for me?
Track Name: Green
Here i am
I'm red
This heart is green
Here's where all roads led
Where have you been?

It's all on hold
I'll stay here until the sun grows cold
I'm opening my eyes
I can see for miles

When the world is waiting
Let them go
Are many remaining?
I don't know

It's all on hold
I'll stay here until the sun grows cold
I'm opening my eyes
I can see for miles
