Track Name: Fade
Will our footsteps fade,
Or will the price be paid?
And will the earth’s breath give out from the mess we made?

Will you see this place?
Will you have your day?
Or will our children’s lives all fade and be erased?

How did we ever, ever, ever reach this stage?
We thought we’d never, never, never see the day.
But what do we know if everything we’ve ever had we all now owe.
What do we know, if everything we kill we think will regrow.

Will our wars rage on,
And will the damage be done?
Have we fired the death blow from the greatest gun?

Will life find a way,
Or is it just too late?
And is human nature natural at all today.

How did we ever, ever, ever reach this stage?
We thought we’d never, never, never see the day.
But what do we know if everything we’ve ever had we all now owe.
What do we know, if everything we kill we think will regrow

Smile child, don’t cry
Swallow down our lies
Eat up, eat up
Chew up our lies
Track Name: From The Top
The summer is gone, holiday’s up
I’m told playtime is over, it’s time to grow up.
From Brooklyn to Britain at just a throw of a stone,
Mckibbin street my playground and Woodlocks my home.

Left my shoes at the shire to ensure that I go back,
Going barefoot is no fun when walking off the track.
Left my love on foreign soil, I’ll need to get her back,
So I’ll steal her shoes if I so need to get me back on track

And back to the startline to take it from the top,
Let the gun off,
On your marks, ready, set, go!
Wont stop, wont stop,
Wont stop, wont stop.
And back from the top.

I’ve felt it, I feel it, but will I ever see it?
It teases me, torments me, lights up things inside of me.
I hear its distant call like a dog to the wild.
So I’ll keep on at the hunt if the trail is feeling old.

Left my shoes at the shire to ensure that I go back,
Going barefoot is no fun when walking off the track.
Left my love on foreign soil, I’ll need to get her back,
So I’ll steal her shoes if I so need to get me back on track

And back to the startline to take it from the top,
Let the gun off,
On your marks, ready, set, go!
Wont stop, wont stop,
Wont stop, wont stop.
And back from the top.
Track Name: Man & Beast
Watch the birds fly with the curve of the sky
Giving chase to the sun and its gift of life.
And watch the herds walk over plains of cracked earth
Seeking out the floods to wash away their thirst

But watch the humans stamp over all that they see,
No thoughts spared for others, we take what we need.
We eat where we stand, just plant a new crop.
Life is so easy up here on the top.

The earth was made of land and sea.
It spread its seeds and grew the trees.
It paved the way for man and beast,
So all could live in harmony
But the new design was incomplete,
And faulted in its symmetry,
For man grew strong and bent on greed
And rid the earth of its bounty.

As we came out of the seas and onto the land,
Life’s hold began to slip from its hand.
Though man had grown strong all was not lost,
For life will go on no matter the cost.

And when the earth is through the freeze will come,
Undoing all the wrongs its inmates have done
And paving the way for a fresh beginning,
And the chance for life to see what it was missing.

The earth was made of land and sea.
It spread its seeds and grew the trees.
It paved the way for man and beast,
So all could live in harmony
But the new design was incomplete,
And faulted in its symmetry,
For man grew strong and bent on greed
And rid the earth of its bounty.
Track Name: Hold On You
If all you ever say is sorry how can I ever forgive you?
Trust in me when I say, “You’ve done no wrong, I love you.”
Shed some weight, exhale old smoke, its clogging up your veins.
A purer blood waits impatiently to burst through your rusting mains.

I’ve got a hold on you, get a hold on me.
Get a hold on you, a hold on you.

“Don’t lose faith in me,” you say, as if I had wagered money.
I never had faith nor needed, never though you were going crazy.
Everything you could ever want, is nuzzling at your feet,
Pay attention to the puppy, he just wants a little treat.

I’ve got a hold on you, get a hold on me.
Get a hold on you, a hold on you.

Don’t do something stupid, these are patterns of the past,
And they no longer want you, they were never meant to last.
The road you’ve reached is good for you, it’ll take you to the sun.
I’m waiting there with the keys, waiting for you to come.

I’ve got a hold on you, get a hold on me.
Get a hold on you, a hold on you.
Track Name: My Caldera
Are we, are we lost?
Do we want to go home?
Could it be, is it plain to see
That we are already home?

Is this love?
Is this love?

If I, If I close my eyes
The light, it still fills my sight
What’s that chill running down my spine?
I’m fine, I think I’m finally fine

Is this love?
Is this love?

Down a tunnel full of secrets to the centre of the earth
Where the temperature will soar
But I’ll carry on, Carry on.

Is this love?
Is this love?
