Track Name: Is It Safe To Call Your Name?
Is it safe to call your name?
Is it safe to call your name?
Is it safe to call your name?
Is it safe to call your name?

If you called
After everything you've done
Then you'd fall
After everything I've become

It's getting late
Every night is for the dawn
It's getting late
And there's one thing I should know

Is it safe to call your name?
Is it safe to call your name?

You know, you know
You'll go, you'll go
Track Name: Waiting
What are we waiting for?
Who's knocking at the door?
What are we killing for?
How can we be so sure?

If you could take it all back
Would you walk the same track?

Time it is moving on
Will you sing your song?
When will it rain again?
Don't ask the weather man

If you could take it all back
Would you walk the same track?

What are we waiting for?
I want to know who's keeping score
Are we all out of time?
A second guess is better than mine

Atmosphere closing in
When will it burn your skin?
When will you drop the ball?
Are you gonna lose it all?

If you could take it all back
Would you walk the same track?

What are we waiting for?
I want to know who's keeping score
Are we all out of time?
A second guess is better than mine

What are we waiting for?
I want to know who's keeping score
Are we all out of time?
A second guess is better than mine

Better than mine
Track Name: Swollen
If you're falling
I know exactly what you're seeing
If you're swollen
I know exactly how you've been

If you were living that before you wouldn't be falling down no more
If you were giving it more time you wouldn't be taking back your prime

If it's spoken
You'll know exactly how to feel
If it's awoken
You'll know exactly what to heal

If you were living that before you wouldn't be falling down no more
If you were giving it more time you wouldn't be taking back your prime

Living in time, living in another life
Living in time, living in another life
Living in time, living in another life
Living in time, living in another life

Living in time, living in another life
(You're always living in another life)
Living in time, living in another life
(But when you wake up you'll realise)
Track Name: I Don't Know If We'll Win The War
I don't know if we'll win the war
I don't know what we're fighting for
But you know, I'm involved

And every time you look inside
You don't know what you're gonna find
But you know, I'm involved

Please set me free
Please set me free

I've been in doubt, I've been locked out
I don't know how to shut it out
But you know, I'm involved

I was lost and I was found
Any lower, underground
But you know, I'm involved

Lie here with me
Lie here with me

I came here from the other side
Now I've got no place to hide
But you know, I'm involved

Please set me free
Please set me free
Lie here with me
Lie here with me

Please set me free
Please set me free
Lie here with me
Lie here with me
Track Name: Hold Me Here
You should've listened
The only way to know is if you've known it before
Don't hold back
It's not like you're losing the war
But I love that part and I love the way you are
And I love today but I love this feeling more

Now it's happening
Every day you're counting all the lines on the floor
Don't deny it
Let me show you some more
And I love that part but I'm living upside down
And I love today, gonna bring that burden down

And all that I want
And all that I want
And all that I want
And all that I want

Is for you to hold me here
For you to hold me here

Now it's over
I never knew you knew me so well
Like a cold moon
No-one hears the story you tell
But I love that part and I love the way you are
And I love today but I love this feeling more

And all that I want
And all that I want
And all that I want
And all that I want

Is for you to hold me here
For you to hold me here
For you to hold me here
For you to hold me here

If you're going to take away my soul I will never be alone

Hold me here
Hold me here
Hold me here
Hold me here
Hold me here
Hold me here
Track Name: Dream A Little More
I don't know why you're leaving
Been here since yesterday
In my own mind you're giving the living no reason you're gonna stay

All I want is to dream a little more

I don't know why you're spinning
Twisting and turning away
In my own mind you're so short from being alone or together today

All I want is to dream a little more

But you keep on keeping everything
All to yourself
You keep on keeping everything

I don't know why you're spinning
Twisting and turning away
In my own mind you're so short from being alone or together today

All I want is to dream a little more

But you keep on keeping everything
All to yourself
You keep on keeping everything
But you keep on keeping everything
All to yourself
You keep on keeping everything

I don't know why you're leaving
Been here since yesterday
I don't know why you're leaving
Been here since yesterday
Track Name: The Only Living Animal
Yeah you'll play the part
Yeah you'll play the part

If you ever took the time out of your life to think about
Somebody else but yourself then you would know

Wasting every day wishing things will come your way
Spending all your time in your prime and soon it shows

The world is spinning round but boy it's gonna hit the ground
The only living animal will hear your words and sound

Yeah you'll play the part
Yeah you'll play the part
Track Name: Just Another Folk Song
Everything you ever knew
Everything that you were waiting for
Everything they said to you
Everything that you were hoping for

Let another problem evolve
They don’t know what they’re fighting for

There was a time not long ago
Everybody dancing in the sun
If you all could see the truth
You would know how it all came undone

Let another problem evolve
They don’t know what they’re fighting for

Everything you ever knew
Everything that you were waiting for
Everything they said to you
Everything that you were hoping for

Let another problem evolve
They won’t listen to what you say
Let another problem evolve
They don’t know what they’re fighting for
Track Name: The Pretender
You’re bringing it down everywhere
Some place, some time, somewhere I will remember
Your house of cards is falling down
The time to spare is the time to be the pretender

But everything they took from you
It ain’t a thing or two to take forever

You’re bringing it down it never ends
It’s times like these you wish you were another
Pushing and pulling to comprehend
The time you lost is the sunlight in the summer

But everything they took from you
It ain’t a thing or two to take forever

You don’t need to bother cos there will be no other

You think I wouldn’t notice
You think I wouldn’t notice
You think I Wouldn’t notice
Track Name: Behind The Gun
I see you running from your way home
I see you running from your friends
They say you want to go

And now you’re living on the edge
You say you want to find your way home
But it’s better left unsaid

And your time will come
Now or never make your run
It don’t matter when it’s done
If you’re always behind the gun

And now you listen to the foxes
They help you colour your whole word
And help you to think out aloud

There’s nothing more you’ve got to offer
And nothing less you’ve got to give
In all that you remember

And your time will come
Now or never make your run
It don’t matter when it’s done
If you’re always behind the gun

You’re gonna fall down
Sick and tired of what they tell you
You’re on your own now
But everyday’s another day
The setting sun won’t wait for everyone

And your time will come
Now or never make your run
It don’t matter when it’s done
The setting sun won’t wake you up

And your time will come
Now or never make your run
It don’t matter when it’s done
If you’re always behind the gun
Track Name: You're Not Let Down
You’re not around, you’re not let down
You’ve got to much faith to turn around
And I wonder

Back and forth you’re never gonna know
Just how much pain it takes to show
How I wonder

I wonder why you left it there
Left to break and not to share
Each time you look into my eyes

So when it’s over you’re left all alone
You’ve got what it takes to be unknown
And I wonder

If you remember the way you came back
You could carry the weight of this attack
Yeah I wonder

I wonder why you left it there
Left to break and not to share
Each time you look into my eyes

I wonder why you shut it out
I don’t know what you’re gonna see next time
You look into my eyes

You’re not around and you’re not let down
You’re not around and you’re not let down
You’re not around and you’re not let down
You’re not around and you’re not let down
You’re not around and you’re not let down
You’re not around and you’re not let down
You’re not around and you’re not let down
You’re not around and you’re not let down

You’re not let down

You’re not let down
You’re not let down
Track Name: Oh Brother
Oh brother won’t you save me?
From the heartache of my mind
I need you right beside me
Oh brother of mine

Don’t you know how I need you?
Don’t you know how I care?
Don’t you know how I love you?
Oh brother oh man

Oh brother were you taken?
To be forgotten by your friends
I still remember when you told me
You would be there til the end

Don’t you know how I need you?
Don’t you know how I care?
Don’t you know how I love you?
Oh brother oh man

Oh my brother
Oh my brother
Remember your mother
Please remember your mother

Don’t you know how I need you?
Don’t you know how I care?
Don’t you know how I love you?
Oh brother oh man
