Verse 1
Halos of possibility, grandiose idiot energy of suction nymphs
Conquer my oblique controversy
pry apart aphorism with pasig distortion
of love's angle to God
My slice of famous was too sharp
now docile snippets of inconsistency
capture haphazard instincts of immutable infinity

Chorus
Don't understand me
Know me
Know me
My exuvial nature
Tones semi quaver
Don't understand me
Know me
Know me
Know me

Verse 2
Jettisoned to jog heat face sweat, fast dripping down
time broke strings bound for galactic termination
For you tried to understand through gyration of atoms
but it's just too dramatic to set your anchor down
I am lost and know it, I'm sure it really shows
lost and hanging to flotsam, for brevity of society
is a story of soothing lies in Nodes of Ranvier

Bridge
Low, tight and parabolic
When I was the victim of restriction
inclination to challenge being caged
What did you say?
What did you say?
What did you say?

Chorus
Don't understand me
Know me
Know me
My exuvial nature
Tones semi quaver
Don't understand me
Know me

Verse 1
Judas tree swayed in certain breeze
I teased you about your tangled hair
tear in your jeans was opening
We crucified our hearts
To understand our pain

Chorus
Skeleton key
Jammed my door
Sorry I'm so insensitive
I shoot breeze naturally
My skeleton key
Naturally
My skeleton key
My skeleton key

Verse 2
Deity on the bridge oversees river rise
flowing saffron dress billows with ease
you see my reflection in the water
We crucified our hearts
To understand our pain

Bridge
Can I unlock your door?
Just let me try
I've been closed
For a long time now
I'm ready to come in from the cold
Ready to come through your door

Chorus
Skeleton key
Jammed my door
Sorry I'm so insensitive
I shoot the breeze naturally
My skeleton key
Naturally
My skeleton key
My skeleton key

End
We crucified our hearts
To understand our pain
Skeleton key for a Judas tree
We shoot the breeze
Naturally

Intro
Too young to know
Too young to feel
Too young to know

Verse 1
No point stubbing out that cigarette
places keep your walking
kicking domino effect
slow release been coming

Verse 2
Plastic ivy you can't kill
your attention span craving
your mind lapses so still
sometime else you will

Chorus
Unashamed
Un tame
Don't compromise
Tame
Un tame, un tame, un tame

Verse 3
Night smolders on
eyes stretch, floor touch
gravity agrees, body follows
spiritual anguish heals

Verse 4
Sleep takes you down
holographic halls
turquoise tones magenta
your rhythm Circadian

Bridge
Shake your grievances
Shake, shake, shake
Ladder last rung
Shake to ground
You will never tire
Shake, shake. shake

Chorus
Unashamed
Un tame
Don't compromise
Tame
Un tame, un tame, un tame

End
Worn out dynasties
Cigarettes and plastic ivy
Cigarettes and plastic ivy
Cigarettes and plastic ivy

Verse 1
April weather turns me
Volatile and beautiful
As I look in your eyes
Feel you are mine

Verse 2
Want to build you a home
Divine in my arms
Form memories super strong
My life line my life long

Pre-Chorus
You really got me
Sacrifice has cost me
Million times I’ve lost
Now I’ve got to say

Chorus
You are my lightest day
In my darkest hour
My vision
When I can’t find
A million times
A million shrines
A million times
You are my lightest hour
In my darkest day
My path
When I can’t find
A million times
A million shrines
A million times
A million times

Verse 3
I believe in destiny
Never would happen to me
You are my Achilles heel
Sun goes down surreal

Bridge
I return to you
Tide an ocean
We slept on that shore
Tropic of Capricorn
Red dirt to ruin
Slash and burn
I return to you
Return to you
Return to you
Return

Pre-Chorus
You really got me
Sacrifice has cost me
Million times I’ve lost
Now I’ve got to say

Chorus
You are my lightest day
In my darkest hour

When I can’t find

Verse 1
I’m stranger than your stranger
Staggered brilliant synchronicity
punch line bad joke
Vendetta to wager

Verse 2
Scene from old movies
Padded velvet, thick grey smoke
Echoes of a dying breed
Naive to move me

Chorus
Prey tell, prey tell
Fuel their fire
Soft satire
Prey tell, prey tell
Death to wise
Prey tell, prey tell

Verse 3
Their boat yard language
Plants clues in silly head
Now I find myself
Forgiving what they said

Verse 4
I want to keep the peace
Failure they cherish, play on
Those gates are open
Welcome urgent impulse

Bridge
Sinister upper hand
Knife defeat close to heart
They bleed for no one
They bleed for no one
They bleed for no one

Chorus
Prey tell, prey tell
Fuel their fire
Soft satire
Prey tell, prey tell
Death to wise
Prey tell, prey tell

Prey Tell

Verse 1
Wildfire ceremony, night of stars
Locked together out of promise was
Over their rivers to simplicity
Rolling off waves crashing sensory

Verse 2
Time their Titan, worn from beginning
Stretches of lonely nights chilling
Their niche so close behind eyes seeing
House of damage, sympathy fleeting

Chorus
Vanguard lovers
Boulevard of dreams
What remains
All theirs
Vanguard lovers
Vanguard lovers
Over and over
Vanguard lovers
Vanguard lovers
What remains
Vanguard lovers

Verse 3
Division found them multiply excuses
Therapeutic overuse, lies illusive
Eyes can’t meet as they used to
Atmosphere between was explosive

Verse 4
Time moved, deconstructed past
Rain on their parade, life raft
Years for years, fool’ days fade
Rare blue storm falling down hard

Bridge
Those days have died
Those days have died
Those days held keys
Lost along ways
No promise can hold
No promise told
How to turn
How to turn
Turn another way

Chorus
Vanguard lovers
Boulevard of dreams
What remains
All theirs
Vanguard lovers
Vanguard lovers
Over and over
Vanguard lovers
Vanguard lovers
What remains
Vanguard lovers

Vanguard Lovers

Verse 1
There’s no normal explanation
Balanced between harbours, sinking
To my knees again
Seeing those 3s again
Searching for answers in your eyes again
I grapple to capitalise
On any hint of resolution
To move out of this situation

Chorus
We have a variation
We have a variation
We have a variation
There’s a vibration
Unrecognised
We have a variation
We have a variation

Verse 2
Documentation doing my head in
Contract ink, sign, date, repeating
Where’s the story in free flow?
Lost in contractual gizmo
Broken dreams in ocean below
Tidal waves, no land in sight
Trust god to get me out alive
Lost face too many times

Bridge
Daggers of autumn
Velvet wind sharpening
Singing me a love song
I slip into
Closing out words
Chanting sounds
Love song, love song
Spinning out of time

Chorus
We have a variation
We have a variation
We have a variation
There’s a vibration
Unrecognised
We have a variation
We have a variation

End
There’s a temptation to ignore this variation
Temptation to ignore this variation
I’m slipping, slipping
Slipping again

We Have a Variation

Verse 1
Reeling back time
images combine
so real I'm almost there
I taste that air
whispers of breath
on my neck
those times long ago
we chose to let go

Verse 2
Photoplay for fiction
decision, breakaway
house full of rumors
screaming down halls
bold and beautiful
lost by youth
those times long ago
we chose to let go

Bridge
Catch a memory
Let it slip away
Catch a memory
Just for today
Catch a memory
Hold it for a second
Dancing sideways
Let it play
Let it play
Let it play

Chorus
Shadow my memory
Far away in time
Photoplay
Photoplay
Brings you back
Back to me
Back to me
Photoplay
Photoplay
Shadow my memory
Photoplay
Photoplay
Photoplay

Verse 3
You, back of my head
time bleached grey
I'm no longer there
for now is here
fiction did falter
Can you remember?
those times long ago
we chose to let go

Bridge
Catch a memory
Let it slip away
Catch a memory
Just for today
Catch a memory
Hold it for a second
Dancing sideways
Let it play
Let it play
Let it play

Chorus
Shadow my memory
Far away in time
Photoplay
Photoplay
Brings you back
Back to me
Back to me
