Track Name: All The Gear
I see you pushing all your pedals down
Changing guitars all the time
Like you’re searching for a secret sound

You’re not dangerous or reckless
With a plectrum on a necklace
And how can you be so seriously
Telling everyone to put their hands up in the air

You’re like a less than covert, drunken Casanova
Music flowing through you but its running over
I see you pushing all your pedals down

I see you pulling all your faces now
Like giving us your best sex gargoyle's
Gonna hit the high notes somehow

As the lights fall low at the end of the show
And we’re all standing in the shadow of your ego
You’re heading to the front, say you’re playing us one more
Well if we have to suffer you giving us another
Show a little mercy and play a cover
I’m sure nobody has shouted ‘encore’
I’m sure no-one here has shouted ’one more’

But I say through clenched teeth
I can’t fault your belief in what you’re doing here now
You really brought your guns to this town
I think the problem is me
And I should curb my jealousy - it doesn’t help anyhow
And stop putting all the good bands down
And stop putting all the good bands down
And stop putting all the good bands down
Track Name: Kat, I'm Sorry
I was a star in my mind
In my imagination, loving the attention
My fifteen minutes of lame
We were friends for a time
Before that one occasion broke off our communication
I shoulder all of the blame
And I’m sorry
Kat, I’m sorry

You drove all over the country
Turning up at shows where only locals go
A friendly face in every unfamiliar town
I put your name in the liner notes
Long before the lines I wish I never wrote
When I ripped it up and tore it all down

That night you lay there beside me, my arms around you
I didn’t go any further, but I wanted to

Call me a freak
At least that means you’d call me
I’m not so sad and weak
As I was way back then
I’m sure you haven’t forgotten me yet
But I know it’s too late to forgive and forget
And I’m sorry
Kat, I’m sorry

You see, there was another
And she hated you the way that women do
When they know they’re being lied to
I was weak, I was stupid
I made you out to be some crazy groupie
I never thought that was true

I played you down in that message, I was heartless and cruel
I meant to send it to her, but I sent it to you…

Call me a freak
At least that means you’d call me
I’m not so sad and weak
As I was way back then
I’m sure you haven’t forgotten me yet
But I know it’s too late to forgive and forget
I’m sorry
Kat, I’m sorry
Track Name: You're The Chalk, I'm The Cheese
I’ve been asleep for so long
I’ve been tird broken long overdue
I’ve tied hiding myself from you
You’ve tried hiding from me too

Some people say we’re a terrible team
In some ways, I can see what they mean
But they don’t know us and I don’t care if they never know us
I know you

So don’t think that I don’t love you
Cos I don’t say it all the time
I’ll always keep your heart inside
While you’re holding on to mine
Hold on to min
Track Name: Back To The Fall
Wrap my arms around regress
Hold my tongue and catch my breath
Sliding into sudden death
Are you with me, are you with me?

You made a promise to yourself you wouldn’t fall apart
Be the glue that held the pieces of your shattered heart
And then you’d put yourself together, you’d go back to the start
Like it’s easy. It’s that easy

Now all that’s left is crystal clear
It’s like I’m pulling out the pages that I wrote this year
Sliding back to the same old fears
I conceded, I retreated

You pulled out the rotten pieces and you put em right
So remember that, even on the darkest nights
The bright side isn’t walking into the light
You can beat it, you can beat it

I was waking up to sunshine when I pulled down the blinds
Saying it’s overrated, I’ll be fine
And so what if I know I’m not

To the fall, to the fall, to the worst of it all
I’m telling you to get into the eye of your own storm
Now you’re in the fight of your life
And you’ll do anything that you can to survive
You’re not going back to the fall

Every time I mix and pour
These clumsy rhyming metaphors
Well its something I feel better for
She was right, glad I met her

You sank and you swam but you didn’t drown
Took your white noise and gave it a sound
She told you to write it down like a letter
This is better
Track Name: Sand In The Petrol
It’s like I’m tied up in chains
Binding all that I do
It’s a silent attack bent on holding me back
And forcing me further from you

Wired up to machines
Sampled blood from my veins
Well I’m facing the fact broken battery’s flat
As they’re wiring me up to the mains
Yeah they’re wiring me up to the mains

So open my eyes and say that it’s OK
Am I’m lying here safe in your arms
It’s all in my head and not in my hands
Well I can’t understand if it’s part of the plan
Why it’s out of control, beyond my command
So open my eyes and say that it’s all fine

So my fingers burn
Every song that I learn
I’m resisting the gloom of a darkened bedroom
As I build myself up to return
Yes I build myself up to return

So open my eyes and say that it’s OK
I’m lying here safe in your arms
It’s all in my head and not in my hands
Well I can’t understand if it’s part of the plan
Why it’s out of control, beyond my command
So open my eyes and say that it’s all fine

Sometimes it’s hard to let myself be
When I’m spending half of my time trying to be my own worst enemy
So I’m asking you one more time please…

Open my eyes, say that it’s OK
I’m lying here safe in your arms
It’s all in my head and not in my hands
Well I can’t understand if it’s part of the plan
Why it’s out of control, beyond my command
So open my eyes and say that it’s all fine

Open my eyes, say that it’s OK
I’m lying here safe in your arms
It’s all in my head it’s all in my head
Well I can’t understand if it’s part of the plan
Why it’s out of control, beyond my command
So open my eyes and say that it’s all fine
