Track Name: The Spaces In The Rain
Sleep between the spaces in the rain
Say you'll shelter next to me again

In amongst the noise
create a flame
Cast a shadow over me again
Track Name: Blinded By Little-Known Colours
With a slapstick
Rattle of thunder
I've come to ask
For your number

Keep my secrets
Richer than sixpence
Saving up for my entrance

Shut my eyes
One after the other
Blinded by little-known colours
As I stumble over your threshold
Hold me under
My breath

My invention never succeeded
What it was
Wasn't needed
I was clutching at The Last Story
And Boring
Track Name: Shipwreck Song
Things are always what they seem
Find me a shipwreck
One that's not sunk yet

Show me your heart
Before I wake
Make me speak up
Shake my eggcup, beacon...

Spend one whole year on the phone
Twelve months of listening
The hissing of distances
All for a crack in the clouds
Louder than thunder
Underwhelmed by it
All because our song became
'Hey Hey, let's linger with danger'
'Hey Hey, let's go number with neighbours'
'Hey Hey, oh why don't we pretend...'
