Resonance 03:43
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

Descending 03:19
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?

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

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

Fly 04:07
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

Lost 04:16
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

Blue 02:44
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?

Green 02:59
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
