Track Name: No Magic, No Witches
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
Track Name: Meat Trails
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
Track Name: Bury Me Tomorrow
(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
Track Name: Bicephalous
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
Track Name: The Future Is So Different Today
(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
Track Name: Nascent Lions
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
Track Name: Rewards
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
