Track Name: Theories
As smooth as silk, as bright as gold
Low and behold
The saviour of a dying scene, but no one here consulted me

One size never fit all, the talent pool
Is smaller than it’s ever been,
And too shallow to dive

Setting out to make your mark
Which road will start, the journey of a thousand steps
Can start with one mistake

It doesn’t matter who you know
It’s fashion over function
Stockholm Syndrome

You stole the sun away
You won the argument
Re-trace steps to learn where you were
You stole the sun

You stole the sun away
You won the argument
Re-trace steps to learn where you were
You stole the sun
Track Name: Making Friends With Strangers
See you standing there
Looking at me unaware

But deep inside we’re all the same
but sit in judgement anyway

Senseless minds
Borderline

So pull the other leg
And we’ll dance in vain
Spin me round

Please don’t tell me
I won’t listen

Senseless minds
Borderline

So pull the other leg
And we’ll dance in vain
Spin me round
Track Name: Make Believe
It’s no surprise, and you’re telling everyone
Whilst saying nothing more than lies
So bide your time
Grit your teeth and sail away
Nothing simple ever stays the same

Prayer won’t
Save so…

Satellites mid-flight
Bid you all a good night
In empty skies
There’s nothing there and never was
Between the ground and the gods
Just make believe

Not so fast, there’s no quick fix get out clause
Take a stand and fight for
What you believe
Having been here before
This time looking for so much more

Prayer won’t
Save so…

Satellites mid-flight
Bid you all a good night
In empty skies
There’s nothing there and never was
Between the ground and the gods
Just make believe

Satellites mid-flight
Bid you all a good night
In empty skies
There’s nothing there and never was
Between the ground and the gods
Just make believe
Track Name: Riff Town Population: You
It’s like a punch in the face
It’s like a bump in the road
It’s like you’ve never been born and at the same time a ghost

No one else here seems to think
No one else here seems to care

It’s like your taking on water and gasping for air

Some people never listen
But that’s not me
I value your opinion
I’m listening

One day you’ll learn
I’ll watch you burn

It’s like a punch in the face
It’s like a bump in the road
It’s like you’ve never been born and at the same time a ghost

Some people never listen
But that’s not me
I value your opinion
I’m listening
Track Name: Hand In Hand
This is not a test
Though others might suggest it was
Standing to attention
Dying to be heard

Don’t sweat it out
Or you will loose it all
And if you make it out
Stand tall

Never would have guessed
You stretch then tear when paper-thin
Don’t hold back
Don’t let go

Don’t sweat it out
Or you will loose it all
And if you make it out
Stand tall

We stood hand in hand and face to face
Never stopping to think
One day, all of this could be taken
Away, along with our memories, gone

This is now a test
As others had suggested once
No distractions
Not saying a word

Don’t sweat it out
Or you will loose it all
I hope you make it out

We stood hand in hand and face to face
Never stopping to think
One day, all of this could be taken
Away, along with our memories, gone
Track Name: Change Of Heart
Well I think I've heard it all now
You say you’re doing everything you can
But you practice something different to what you preach
Just keep talking and I’ll show you who I am

You talk the talk but you’ll never know
That you’re pushing me away, and you've nowhere left to go
Don’t be so scared of who you are but please don’t make me have a
Change of Heart

Look back at the times when you thought you were telling
Me just exactly what you thought I’d need to hear
You've a constant need to please and to follow suit
But you live your life in fear

You talk the talk but you’ll never know
That you’re pushing me away, and you've nowhere left to go
Don’t be so scared of who you are but please don’t make me have a
Change of Heart

Well I know I've heard it all now
I wish you’d be this honest from the start
But you said and did the very best you could
Please stop talking as I've had a change of heart
