Track Name: Glasgow Stranger
Thrills over ills, you know, ‘cause they were never gonna leave this alone, and I can still, feel the chill in the air, as if I was really there and it’s a feeling that you’ll probably know, oh oh.

So take your time to enjoy the show, but if you’re not fast then you’re last, yeah you’re slow, and there’s no time, for a tortoise in this rhyme, to make ground up from behind and overtake the Hare before he can know.

Are we better off, if we’re blind to it anyway? And when left alone, our devices are the enemy.

Lazy bones you’re not alone, ‘cause when our eyes see those lights in the Glasgow skyline you know we’re home.

Feelin’ fine less than half the time, I’m only living when we’re playing a show, and I can’t cope, with this numbing of my mind, wasting time from 9 till 5, wishing the days away ‘till hitting the road.

Step back in time, circa 2005 and ask this question to my teenager soul;

“So are we living all the dreams inside your mind, or am I falling behind the expectations in the seeds that you’d sown”?

Are we better off, if we’re blind to it anyway? And when left alone, our devices are the enemy.

Lazy bones you’re not alone, ‘cause when our eyes see those lights in the Glasgow skyline you know we’re home.

I’ve got some problems, I need to solve them, ‘cause I can’t face a life of this monotony, got to get away.

Lazy bones you’re not alone, ‘cause when our eyes see those lights in the Glasgow skyline you know we’re home.
Track Name: Am I Useful?
I’ve been going to the river every day, To check on my reflection and see everything’s ok.

And when the sky just seems to fall into the sea, I know you’ll hold your hand out in the hope you’ll rescue me.

But i’d rather, not bother, to pretend, that I’m happy to give up dreaming and play dead.

So am I useful? Now that my heads gone and the feelings lost, am I useful, now that I’ve stopped singing? Am I useful, now that my hearts numb and the beatings dropped, But give me one more sad song they want me to sing and I will show you i’m living.

Are the answers back in accents when you pray? Wish I could hear the reassuring dialect of faith.

I’m pretty sure I have no clue what I believe, does that make me a cynic, a believer or naive?

But i’d rather, not bother, to pretend, that I know how it’s gonna turn out in the end.

So am I useful? Now that my heads gone and the feelings lost, am I useful, now that I’ve stopped singing? Am I useful, now that my hearts numb and the beatings dropped, but give me one more sad song they want me to sing and I will show you i’m living.

I will show you i’m Seeing, I’m breathing, I’m feeling much better, I’m seeing, I’m breathing, I’m Feeling.
Track Name: Coraline
“I saw the Sun today, thought it was lost, but I found it inside of me”, said the note on the door which I read from the floor whilst in a fragile state.

But I’d been there for days, why only now had the words come into my gaze? The only thing that I knew is that I was with you amidst your golden rays.

And it was so long ago, that i’d forgive you if this was lost, but I have never taken it lightly, so I just wanna let you know that

Coraline, you’ve got the innocence, so let it shine, just take those buttons off your eyes, and rise tonight to show the world we’ve got it right, oh oh oh.

Back in those hazy days, I’d stick my best get up on and i’d go out to play, knew you’d come see me for clues so you’d know what to do when you needed soleil.

If you’ll be good to me, well I’ll be good to you. ‘Cause i’m a convert of truth with the romance of youth to see this promise through.

And it was so long ago, that i’d forgive you if this was lost, but I have never taken it lightly, so I just wanna let you know that

Coraline, you’ve got the innocence, so let it shine, just take those buttons off your eyes, and rise tonight to show the world we’ve got it right, oh oh oh.

Show me your colours, i'll show you what you mean to me.

Show me your colours i'll show it's not make believe.
Track Name: Butterflies
Butterflies, will block out the sun tonight, am I dreaming this? days go by, without as much as a sound.

And I’m screaming but no one will hear, even though in my head this just all sounds so clear, these feelings of love,

All together in the atmosphere, can I borrow a cup, of ambition for a moment here, oh woah oh.

Sing us a song, for tomorrow, we’ve been over this and under this but I cant sing you a single a song about love, oh woah oh.

Realise, that the world has been built on lies, I know to say this might jeopardise, the common ground that we’ve grown, but to stand back and watch you’re mind fear, all of the poison that the powers that be preach as clear, Journalism is wrong,

And it's polluting our atmosphere, can I borrow a cup, of retrospection 'till the motive's clear, oh woah oh.

Sing us a song, for tomorrow, we’ve been over this and under this but I cant sing you a single a song about love, oh woah oh.

It’s love, and I just can’t explain, these feelings and the changes they make, to a boy who was ready to break, oh I thank the stars for healing hearts.

Love, all together in the atmosphere, can I borrow a cup, of apprehension 'till the truth appears, oh woah oh

Sing us a song, for tomorrow, we’ve been over this and under this but I cant sing you a single a song about love, oh woah oh.
Track Name: Where'd Your Love Go?
I can hear the water whisper babe, the choir of the surf against the shore, you’re trying to keep your head above these waves, desperately begging for my oar.

All this has to stop right now, cause I’ve forgotten where my head lays, and you’ve been keeping secrets from me, all this has to stop right now.

I hear those mocking birds are singing, attracted to the fruits that you have grown, on branches, which one day will be matches, to burn you, from the very seeds you’ve sown.

fingers clicking resemble clocks when ticking and reminding me the time is right to go, because I’ve seen this all before so I beg you and implore that you don’t stoop to their new levels of below, There’s no rhyme, and reason for this crime so hold back the primal instinct to follow, and know there’s only safety in the pack ’til the farmer comes out back, unloads his rifle and you’ll die with all the crows, oh oh oh oh oh oh.

All this has to stop right now, cause I’ve forgotten where my head lays, and you’ve been keeping secrets from me, all this has to stop right now.

Now it’s time to face the ocean, to meet the tide before she goes, but still I have to ask the question on my mind so I know, will you stay or will you go?

There’s a hole in this nest, and there’s knife in my chest, you forgot just where your head lays, and though I’m sure that you’ll deflect, I think it’s time you just accept that you’ve forgotten where your head lays.

Now it’s time to face the ocean, to meet the tide before she goes, but still I have to ask the question on my mind so I know, will you stay or will you go?
Track Name: Validate Me
Closing time, a feast for the eyes as the lights begin to glow, it wont be long till I’ll write a song that you’ll know.

There’s a sea of skin tonight, desperation haunts the air like moth to light, from, rival boys who hunt in packs, with identikit hair, and over-kempt beards with smiles wiped off their faces at,

Closing time, a feast for the eyes as the lights begin to glow, it wont be long till I’ll write a song that you’ll know.

She’s familiar but we’ve not met, I’ve been searching around to find myself new pets, and in her the bill is fit, She’s been making her eyes so it’s no surprise when I find myself with her at,

Closing time, a feast for the eyes as the lights begin to glow, it wont be long till I’ll write a song that you’ll know.

It’s a darwinistic text-book example in fullest form, of attraction impeding the senses, oh oh oh oh oh oh, with my keys in the door, her bags on the floor and the victory ritual commences, before being replaced with a feeling of mild dis-interest.

Closing time, a feast for the eyes as the lights begin to glow, it wont be long till I’ll write a song that you’ll know.

You maintain opposition to other boys wishing to make you aware of intentions through staring and it wont be long, ‘till I'm writing songs about you.
Track Name: You've Backed The Wrong Horse
So there I was, at the time of it all I would shake and my teeth were bared, ‘cause I took a fall, and with it the glass had been shattered on pictures we used to share, never strayed from, my position, as I faced character, crucifixion, made the break from, social prison, with the aid of truth and altruism.

And I thought, of memories with you and I felt that this wasn’t fair, ‘cause it’s in my head, and I declined at the time but I think I’ll need to feel it…

All, Think I’ll need to feel it, all.

Now I pause for thought, casting my mind to the past, at the truths that we used to dare, and I meant them all, because it was us versus all of rest and we were prepared, for a struggle, for a free fall, for a challenge from rivals ten feet tall, contradictions, confrontations waking up to construct explanations.

and i saw, a picture of us and I thought that I wasn’t there, but I see my hair, and I’ll decide at the time but I think I’ll need to feel it…

All, Think I’ll need to feel it all.

All I know, is the past is a memory, the future is ours to grow, yes I feel this now, but if I meant a thing then i’m sure that you would have known.

Think I’ll need to feel it, all.
Track Name: I Know You're Leaving
It was an innocent mistake, I was just so frustrated, and all I needed you to say, was you appreciated, all of the time that this would take, that it’d be worth my patience, and that i’d mean the same some day, but I was just kept waiting.

It seemed like so long ago, that we were having fun, and I cant stomach it 'cause you were the one.

And I know you’re leaving, you’re leaving, I know that you’re leaving but please don’t leave tonight.

I tried to picture all the ways, you could be consummating, the destruction of my faith, ‘cause i’m a masochist these days, all that it takes, is for a simple message, I really needed you to say, something to stop me guessing,

It seemed like so long ago, that we were having fun, and I cant stomach it 'cause you were the one.

And I know you’re leaving, you’re leaving, I know that you’re leaving but please don’t leave tonight.

Here’s to the ones who never got away, afraid of feeling their own company, but I had got as much of this as I could take, and when I get these kind of feelings, well it’s history,

Cheers to the ones who wouldn't rot and waste, stood up to failure and took victory, 'cause I had got as much of this as I could take, and when I get these kind of feelings well it’s, thanks for all the memories we made, but I know that you’re leaving so make haste.
Track Name: Ruiner
Black cats, and doormats are all I see as I make my way home up the road, and the stillness of the terraces feels like it’s a therapy as I ponder my thoughts in the cold. True to form I’ve been drinking again and though I feel like i’m a man in the zone, there is a faint thumping of dread for the words which have been said via the pixels painting texts on my phone.

They read, “Well I’ve been trying to reach you, where are you? i’ve been lying here awake the whole night!?” and in a blind moment of panic my fingers turned to static, and I hit delete instead of reply.

Straw hats and Sun tans, are things that any girl like you deserves and then more, to be the apple in the eye of a high wage earning guy who brings his time and money all to your door.

And I'll admit I'm a dreamer but I'd rather be dreaming with my head in the air, than to be stuck here on the ground for decades, hanging around wasting my time from 10 till 6 on a chair.

I told a lie, when I said it would be different, and crossed my heart, and if you’d looked me in the eyes you would have seen that I was lying from the start, ‘cause I am, I am, I am, I am a selfish man. But there was never an intention, just a truthful apprehension on my part.
Track Name: I Need Something
I’ve been away from, the town I call home, the faces that grace it, the places we’ve grown.

Corner of my own, to be there for all, I feel my faith throughout her, forever unknown, because

I need something, I just need something, better than this, better than this.

When I cast my mind back there, to the jumpers for goals, to the late summer nights we all spent, in defiance of the cold.

And the ritual of Thursdays, with a life to atone, how you’d kill to have it all like that again, I can’t be alone.

Because, I need something, I just need something, better than this, better than this.
