Track Name: Got It
Scared aloud
Wrapped up in wristwatch
Folding pages down in corners
Well that's evidence, kid

Your left hand bites coat tails
Or just blunts its teeth
Your right hand throttles garden gate posts
Well, we clip our long straws

But it's there, I've seen it, yeah I've noticed
I've watched you keep your face straight.
As you lift up the box to pour the jigsaw out
You take a fringe piece and sit on it.

You can't say that we're all closed books
You can't say that

Your left hand bites coat tails
Or just blunts its teeth
Your right hand throttles garden gate posts
Well, we clip our long straws

But it's there, I've seen it, yeah I've noticed
I've watched you keep your face straight.
As you lift up the box to pour the jigsaw out
You take a fringe piece and sit on it.
Track Name: Shark Fin Soup
Sare hide, the whip's coming up
But look at us now
I've never seen the people out
Hearts in their mouths now

"Wimp out" - make it "will out".

Sare hide, we needed you now
You gave our heart out
And look at us now
I'll never sing, the words again.

"Will out" - make it "stamped out".

Sare hide, we need it.
Track Name: Good Luck
Turns out the way I've been - wait, I mean way I am now
Was way out
Is way out
Don't worry yourself
Yeah no one listens up
Don't manage faults to a fault
Don't you ever grow up
Don't let me just wuss out.
Failing that, just call up, just turn up.

Turns out the way they've been - wait, I mean way they are now
Was way out
Is way out.
Track Name: Etch
As soon as you step one foot in the hall
The door does the rest
And bites ankles and ligaments
Feeding sinew to the room.

The speed which you skipped out of town
You left all your clothing
Choosing to dress yourself from here.
Well did you fail to wait up
In the same place for just long enough?
Cos that means everything to me.
Well you know yourself...

So what if everything dies?
Here's where we turn around
To etch a phrase on the tiling
Your words, not mine.

Those photographs
You said they won't last in front of me
Well the one who holds the room together for you just walked
Clean out.
Track Name: Bad Breakfast
Say hi from me
Whenever fingers come out of ears.
Hope I'm losing your accent.
I've shot this scene a thousand times
One where I try to stuff your palms full of these signs of life.
Well I guess like everyone else, I'm done
Throwing ropes in the water
For now.

I guess from behind you can see there's a smile there
From a swell at the cheekbones
But if that's where you leave it
I guess like everyone else I'm done
Throwing ropes in the water
For now

Say hi from me.
I hope I'm losing your accent.
