Track Name: Liquids
You never ask you insinuate
Suggest I would do something typical
Expect the worst, expect the critical
We take liquids for that

Refused the comfort of silence
Rejected all you care about
In the search for something different
Something non-existent

A relapse into distress get up it’s not your fault
It’s not your fault
A version maybe of myself, get up, get out

Refuse the comfort of silence

Mistakes and sorrow for luck

I am open, you are cut
Do we take liquids in place of love?
Track Name: The Dissident Code (Single Mix)
So from this view
This canyon I call the future
This precipice from which I stare
Over nothingness and all so self-aware
Disappearing, disappearing
Will you ever make the jump for me?

That makes me feel so good and this makes me feel so positive

For all the little half-truths and total lies I cursed myself over
Yeah I cursed myself tonight
Journeys with morals cast aside
Re-enacting the dissident code

I’ll cover all your mistakes
I’ll cancel all your negatives
I’ll destroy all the traces of your misdemeanours
I’ll cancel all your negatives
I’ll cover all your mistakes
I’ll destroy all the traces of your misdemeanours
For we are all the same, we are all the same
Anyway, anyway, anyway

That makes me feel so good and this makes me feel so positive

I’ll cancel all your negatives
I’ll cover all your mistakes
I’ll destroy all the traces of your misdemeanours
I’ll cover all your mistakes
I’ll cancel all your negatives
I’ll destroy all the traces of your misdemeanours
For we are all the same, we are all the same
Anyway, anyway, anyway
Track Name: Mums' Bad Punk Music (EP Mix)
Defend the meaning
Something lies within dangerous resolve
And you’re searching for it
Lost in your head without knowing
Alone with questions, begin to reason
Exposure to a life without sin
Photographs remind us how it was

Beware what you are, be aware what you are

A love burning down
Our big house by the river
Eternally chasing the bliss of abandon
Those dirty little freaks take pieces of you
I sing myself to sleep, I sing myself

Forget what you stand for, it's meaningless
Answers to nothing, defy everyone
You keep it all inside, let nothing out
Track Name: Are You Convinced?
Are you convinced or have you drifted in?
Excuse me while I search for incentives
It’s all conceit, the way you love everyone you meet, everyone

I could say there’s no damage done but all around you we’re faded

What we want and what we need
Are one and the same thing, one and the same thing
What we say and what we do
It doesn’t fit when all roads lead back to you

We don’t fall at the first refusal
We don’t fall for your fake compliments
And you don’t listen when I say I’m a mess, you’re used to it

Do you think it fucking matters, all this crying over nothing?
Reaching out to who we say we are
Who we think we are and who we try to be, who we try to be

I could say there’s no damage done but all around you we’re faded

What we want and what we need
Are one and the same thing, one and the same thing
(So is this all that you want or just all I can give?)
What we say and what we do
It doesn’t fit when all roads lead back to you

We don’t fall at the first refusal (are you convinced we won’t fall?)
We don’t fall for your fake compliments
(Follow your lies through it all)
And you don’t listen when I say I’m a mess, you’re used to it

So is this only that you want or just the all that I have to give
We are one and the same thing?

Do you think it fucking matters who we say we are
Who we think we are and who we try to be?
Track Name: Don't Change (What You Can't Understand)
We built this all for you to hang your dreams upon
Our sanctuary, a safe and warm refuge
You turn lives upside down in the pursuit of a common ground
But you don’t even try to keep up with the pace

Well we never hang out socially
You never even seem to want to talk to me
Where we are all danger and you are the dust
And both are even balanced on ribbons of trust

This is my final letter of complaint, my fatal resignation
I tried to enable perspective while wishing for education
You pretend we are all so dear to you
But these are the last words I will give to you
While silently you plot your revenge I have the answer

Well listen up here sweet indifference
Don’t you know my enemies are even closer than my good friends?
Don’t you ever dare to think I wouldn’t cut your throat
To stop you breaking me into pieces again, again, again, again

Now we never hang out, not like it used to be
You never even seem to want to talk to me
Where we are all danger and you are the dust
And both are even balanced on ribbons of trust

Do you really know the meaning of sacrifice?
(I can start over, we can start over again)
Did we ever connect, was it all superficial?
(This means everything, this means nothing)
We welcomed you like family, you left your lonely world
(These are the last words I will give to you)
Until your self pity overwhelms us
(I have the answer, I have the answer)

Don’t change what you can’t understand
Track Name: Hate Filters
Do you feel over, unsatisfied?
Are you caught up in the charades and tears
Of your troubled life?
It’s just the choices all amount
Fate wrestles luck
And we stand there screaming "let me out, let me out"

I hold my love close to my heart
We don’t let them tear us apart

We keep it simple, we take it easy
You say you need me but I need you more

Hate filters common sense
We run to ground
They sit and laugh at our expense
It just dilutes, wastes and corrupts
We count our blessings
They argue over what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
Track Name: You Can't Lose (What You Don't Have)
In this life it's so much easier
To sit and watch the world move on
A quick glance towards the other half
And laugh at how they did it all wrong
I'd cut loose if I was brave enough
But fears become my only ally
I'd wake up if I had reason to

You can't lose what you don't have
And I am tired of nothing at all
You can't feel what you don't know
I guess I thought that I knew it all

Does a simple future lay in the shelter of your love?

Your words of gratitude
Slowly made me open my eyes
Your smile, true and sincere
Completely lifted me by surprise
I'd give up if I was weak enough
But you won't let me give up the fight
I wake up 'cause I have reason to
Track Name: Conception Territory
When I find that I am here again
The conversation turns to home
Some still familiar arguments, a fight for time alone

Why don't we talk about hurt we never show?
I am listening to you
Did you realise it's all we have to exist?

I don't forget you called me self centred and
Lost in the importance of self advancement
It’s your conscience, it’s your conscience

A repeat of missing, always on my back
It's a slow reaction, I am listening to you
I am listening

Repeat your cowardly behaviour
Running over your anger constant so inequal

Careful it's your last chance
Protected, unconditional

(Don’t leave me here, say that you love me)
We were born at the wrong time
We didn't choose to be victims
All those risks were adventures
We were forced to make decisions
Where we are, where we end up
With the odds stacked against us
We believe in the future all our faith will be rewarded
All our faith will be rewarded
We believe in the future

I won’t leave you here, you know that I love you
Track Name: No. 273
I'm just a sucker for the truth
Time wasted, thinking constant
Questions, possibles, automatic dissonance
It was the killing of kings that opened me
Hit process, full of pessimism
It's all about the money not the casualties
It's all about the money
Do the right thing

You talk about the pressure
I feel it but you don't know who the fuck you are
The danger of irrelevance, a generation divided
Divided

I love the wrong things, I love the wrong things

They called it righteous
Dissidents lined up to load the weapons
Ideals in conflict, whispers and secrets
Inevitable change, change
Divinity loves everyone
And damn you we love everyone
We call it righteous

Everything we do has direct consequences
Track Name: I Have Reached My Limit
You never noticed me
You never heard a word I said
Capsized me with your demons
Then left me lying on the floor as if dead
Still I hear you singing
Songs about the unfortunate ones
Supposed friends here we are all thinking
That you'd be much better off on your own

We are like rain on your parade
Confuse your destination
You are surprised that we remain
Swallowed by indecision

Oh yeah I walk in the dust of the aftermath
I hear the broken down hush
Of the wolves at my back
The age of disaster is always so near
Still I hear your voice and your songs in my ears

We run towards the summers' end
Escape our true ambitions
Under attack we don't defend
We trade our information, we trade our information

I have had enough of this I can't take it
I have reached my limit

Don't give up this much I know we will take care of you
Track Name: Ghosts & Shadows
Cautious trials and dramas leading me back to faith in ignorance
Holding hands with ghosts and shadows
I assure you we are not alone, we are not alone
We are not alone

Someone, somewhere loves you
Someone will break your heart

Is it a constant turbulent stream of bad luck?
Were there signs between the momentary love-ins?
The point where all sinners unite yeah!

Someone, somewhere loves you
Someone will break your heart
Someone, somewhere loves you but you don’t know what love is

Emotions locked, defeat your rival
Embrace them like an old companion
Divert to new mutations with ever-open invitations
Connections so obvious always lead to your ruin or your making
True selfish acts of indulgence, closed off to form and balance

We don’t need your fucking attitude

Ignoring this is brave, defending this is precious, endless
Ignoring this is brave, defending this is precious,
Defending this is precious, endless
(Someone, somewhere loves you, someone will break you)

They’re not gonna break, not gonna break us
Track Name: Animals And Other Silent Types
A shared affinity with my best friends
We talked so openly, I was so touched
Between the open wounds I was caught prisoner
Before I came straight crashing down to earth

My gradual descent into self destruction
And while you listened you held me closely
I will never forget how much you pulled me through
You gave me love and gave me my name
And I will never turn my back on you again

You are my blindness, you are my bridges
You are the road on which I long to feel at home
You are my weakness, you are my substance
You are the reason I am not alone
You dedicate your life to me
And animals and other silent types

I was self conscious, I lost my passion
I crawled into my cemetery heart
You stood there with me, your arms wide open
And swore to never let them tear me apart
You are my prayers answered, my anchors unchained
And I will never turn my back on you again
Track Name: We Are The Mirrors In The Mirrors Of Each Other
I hope you know I do not want this
Don't tempt me to deny I do not need this now
For I assume nothing unconditionally

I won't be a part of the cover-up
And it makes no difference to you if I break
A silhouette, a remembrance that you once cared

You say "it's nothing, where is that real thing now?"
You say, "it's nothing"

Did you think of consequence?
Those empty nights spent wishing
It all would be better in other circumstance
I hope time waits for you for distance only damages

And it makes no difference to you if I break
Before your eyes
A silhouette, a remembrance
Where you once cared now you despise

Don't think it's over, don't think it's over
Track Name: Crush-ed
Left for dead, left alone
How could you leave me so desperate?
Left behind by my own
And I can’t pretend it never crushed me

All of them out of control
Taking turns denying your love
But I just can't let you go
I just can't let you go

Were you used or abused?
I'm fucking sorry and confused
Redemption comes in many guises
But I am not one of them

My hope is over
Unbalanced time and on the edge
With sinister intent

There is nothing here resolved
And everything is broken
And all that I have left
Is the struggle with my heart
Track Name: Pain Agency
Trapped, physically immeasurable
Burning emotional state
Stupid material wants, enlisted in time
Peripheral disasters occurring
With complimentary fits of aggression
In a centrifugal direction abolish all we must

Sweeter than sucking on ice, on honey
My life as an alien
Controversial pain agent

To believe and see in the eyes of the world
To believe and see in the eyes of eternal
To have taken the line over loyalty
Matters of the heart remain ferocious

Resuscitate the black art
Track Name: Lizard Tongue
Those angry whispers force a head rush
Head first insistence she's like gold dust
Then down the line she says "it's not enough"
You say you're free at the expense of us

Convinced them all you were a diamond
Yeah we all fell like hapless idiots
But I am happy I was blinded
I woulda never tasted that sweetness

You break me out of loneliness with all your sweet talk
I catch your smile and it's so twisted
You bite your lip before you lick it
Those naïve pricks were so vindictive

You kiss me like you wanna fuck me
Then pull away like I am nothing
You kiss me like you really need me
As if you even care
Track Name: +ve / -ve
There was something in the air
That something good was gonna happen
I could feel it in my bones
I could taste the warm redemption
I've never been so high, so selflessly devoted
I've never been so high

Me + you =

So here is my confession, I never saw it happen
Please do not share my guilt, it's just a gut reaction
Your selfless optimism I hope will be rewarded
I want to share my ascension with you

No reason I can give you I'm +ve I'm -ve
I've settled with my conscience, I'm +ve I'm -ve
Add me up I make zero, add me up I make zero

Me + you =
You make me sacred
Track Name: Riverside Method
I connect to you when I can only see your eyes
And I love your eyes

Remember when I would pretend I didn't even like you
Maybe I was just hiding from the fact that I was falling for you
How stupid of me to think I could ignore my human nature

How can I resist, how can I be to blame?
I have no self control

And so we have these conversations
Those wonderful tender moments
Where both of us have so much to say
And I care what you have to say
How stupid of me to act like I was your saviour
You're so much more than inspiration

How can I resist, how can I be to blame?
So alive I feel when I'm close to you
All that holds you in is holding me back from telling you
It's holding me back

You are so precious to me, you are so precious to me, you are so precious
Track Name: Blonde Parade
A blonde parade of dreams yeah!
Every problem has a purpose
Stick around while you can
Find your own intentions, somewhere to belong

Was it something they said that spoiled you so much?
A misinterpretation of your yearning

Don't stop doubting what you heard from all those idle friends
So fucking empty underneath
Living with irreverence, crush every failure to only exist on the surface

Was it something they said that spoiled you so much?
A misinterpretation of your yearning

Where one follows another to the scene of the crime

Existence over comfort
Pressure without pressure without pressure
Without pressure, without pressure
Track Name: Dirty Dirty Sick Sick
You dreamt of chasing a red flower
We had a friend of a friends blessing
My true ambition became clouded
I want to share in your victory
Mirror, mirror, one in a million hopefuls
The lies I told you just to be near your treasures

So much not fitting with this life, too much inter dependence
Our soulless escape towards some deeper meaning

You thought that I had made the right decision
Had answers to all your prayers, amen
I could have said ‘it's all about action' but I just kept you guessing all the time

You're so dirty dirty sick sick and we all want a piece of it
