Track Name: Here Comes The Day
Here comes the day
My leg's full of cramp
And my head's like a champ on the ropes
I can't stand to pee
Oh woe is me
It's been harder before, but now I'm feeling it more

Waiting for love's return

I step on the train
And listen to people maintain
Their belief in a God
They try to avoid
The remnants of all they've destroyed
Navigating a path through the pain

Waiting for love's return

I step off the train
And into the home that we shared
As the hail hits the stone
I get in the shower
And wash of the barbs
That we use to devour hearts of lovers and friends

Waiting for love's return
Track Name: Alone, Not Alone
If all our thoughts, when they're revealed
Turn out to be no more than dust and bones
Then we would be conceivably alone
Exposed and alone

We lie and steal and after that
We cover up with fat and bitch and moan
There's always something more that we could own
But the outside remains unknown

In crawling through this crepitating
Undulating cabbage I call home
I think of all the ways that I have grown
But the fact is, I'm still alone

Now you stand before me
Our bodies warming
This is our island, our very own island
We swim in the currents
Your hair is blowing
I'm in love with your colour
Yeah it's humbling stuff
I used to be worried
I used to be sore
I used to be broken
But now I'm opening up
I'm glad we could talk
I guess I was crumbling
But I got some courage
Yeah it's humbling stuff
And it's kind of foreign
But there's something about it
Like the wet of the evening
And the smell of the bud

Now we're here alone
Track Name: Walk With Me This Night
Whether I intended it, I find myself alone
Ancient cravings fill me and I feel the ravings grow
A hawke flies over whistling warnings of fire below
Walk with me
Walk with me this night, oh baby
Walk with me
I mustn't go out alone

Well the bells have rung for days now, there is fever in the crows
Sleep reveals dark visions and there ain't no cure for those
I walk into a brothel setting fire to my clothes
Walk with me
Walk with me this night, oh baby
Walk with me
I mustn't go out alone

There's no need to ask why
Don't ever ask why
I want to keep waking up this way
To the light
We're safe in the light
I want our fears to evaporate
And take flight
But will they ever take flight?
There is a feeling I cannot shake

Our resolve is all we have to keep us entwined
And in these lonely evening hours I feel you close by
There are many reasons I need you by my side
Walk with me
Walk with me
Walk with me this night, I'm begging you
Walk with me
I mustn't go out alone
