Season of storm Named winds flying Artists are dying Crocodiles crying Season of storm Storming of the seas Season of storm Portents looming Digital grooming Smoke mushrooming Season of storm Storming of the seas Season of storm Smokescreens drifting Displaced are shifting Lost hands lifting Season of storm Storming of the seas Killing our time Erase braincells Deluding ourselves Snooze the alarm bells Rationalising Death Defying Season of storm Everyone's angry Children will now see Shrapnel and gangrene Season of storm Storming of the seas Season of storm Named winds flying Artists are dying Crocodiles crying Season of storm Storming of the seas

Meat Trails 05:03
It will be seen to that Doing what you like Will catch up with you Then you can like it - or not You can lump it through The open window into The fuck it bucket Chuck it as far as it will go You never know You may even manage to forget for a while Or at least behave in the style Of the one who couldn't care less Though you know in your chest We can see that you do And see that you do Don't forget Live inside the lines

(Written by Graeme Macrae Burnet) You buried me alive on the beach when we were five You patted down the sand with your smooth innocent hands You left me there to burn as you splashed among the shallows My head could barely turn but I could see your sunshine halo I knew I could escape but I liked to be your prisoner I knew right from the start you had captured my heart Then when we were twelve you met Tom, he was thirteen He took you to the woods where he thought you’d not be seen I followed you on down past the stream and through the trees You looked me in the eye as he knelt between your knees Sarah, won’t you come live in this house that I built for you Give yourself to me and I will still love you tomorrow When we were sixteen the world left us alone together Our ties they bind us tight, blood is stronger than the weather She liked to keep me bound as she took her long slow pleasure She’d leave me there to burn but I learned to love my tethers Sister Sarah, won’t you come live in this house that I built for you Give yourself to me and I will still love you tomorrow Give yourself to me and you can bury me tomorrow You took yourself to town dressed up in your Sunday best And when you did return I saw grass stains on you dress I took up the axe I use for chopping wood and killing chickens I swung it violently and watched your blood slowly thicken I placed you in a grave in the woods and climbed beside you I pulled the earth over my face and thus died in your embrace I pulled the earth over my face and thus died in your embrace Sister Sarah, won’t you come live in this house that I built for you Give yourself to me and I will still love you tomorrow Give yourself to me and you can bury me tomorrow

Bicephalous 04:10
Slow learner greeting over spilled milk Meeting ghosts from past life teeming I've been embarrassing Chemistry reacting wrapped in skin Altered til we don't know If it's me or if it's him Here's to all the people who can't be here with me For all the reasons they or I had to leave It's never far enough to leave my memory If I need to, let me make my apology

(Written by Richard Youngs, possibly garbled by Jamie Flett) In my haze my mind went vacant And I forgot the taste of air I am on earth at a time when I sense The future is so different today I am not a child, just human You are a memory not a man I am on earth at a time when I sense The future is so different today And it's not like we live in caves Screens in place of stars I am on earth at a time when I sense The future is so different today In my life are we beneath these things How I want to feel this reality I am on earth at a time when I sense The future is so different today Voices keep the nightmares away Phone ain't the same these days I am on earth at a time when I sense The future is so different today

The dawn is cruel It's not human like you Morning's cruel It's not human like you And it feels like the world is at an end When the sun is rising This is wrong from the start to the end And the dawn is only cruel Cause it's not human like you Like you Dawn is cruel It's not human like you

Rewards 02:46
We'll keep our own faith We'll keep our own counsel Can't believe in your lords or your gods We don't rate your rewards or your reasons for a war We'll take our time We'll take it slow We'll be content to know There are things we can't ever know On it comes and here we go Here we are and there they go Here's to the brave failures Who followed their guts Which shat them out their luck It's the worry that will kill you, the grief will lay you down Put it aside Lay it all down Lay it on the ground Head in the clouds, feet on the ground We'll be coming round We'll be coming round
