Track Name: Losing Sight
VERSE 1:
Losing sights of my home town
Losing sight of the friends that I once called foes
Losing sight of the hard ground
Losing sight of the place where we all must go

CHORUS:
When they lay my body down
Make them bury me deep down into the ground
May you mourn my passing soul
Recognise that there are things way beyond our control

VERSE 2:
Losing sight of my home town
Losing sight of the dangers I once called friends
Losing sight of my family
Losing sight of the worst of my darkest of sins
Track Name: Feel
VERSE 1:
Feel it multiply like numbers do or clouds in sky
Feel it simplify, a thousand wings but nothing flies

CHORUS:
Breathe in this fragile air
Just keep it safe, just whilst you can
And see it, the picture whole
Don't gain the world, but lose your soul

VERSE 2:
Steal a little time
To stay with me and feel alive
Just feel the night arrives
So young at first then old and wise

VERSE 3:
Feel it all divide
To us or them, to live or die
And hear me testify
No purple heart is afraid to die
Track Name: Ghosts
VERSE 1:
One last time, I swear I am
Never coming down again
I swear, I swear
One last time I said I will
Never be content with anywhere
I swear

VERSE 2:
Trust me when I say to you
All I hear is nothing but complaints
I swear
Never in a thousand years
Could a million reasons be explained
I swear

CHORUS:
Ghosts can haunt me all they like
Cause I found purpose to my life
They visit me throughout the night
Spirits sailing at great height
Track Name: Wedding Song
VERSE 1:
Hoping for the best
Best be hoping loud now
Secrets in a dress
Mother feeling so proud
Walking down the aisle
Holding back the tears
Today be the best
Best day in 3 years

PRE CHORUS:
You've waited so long to find a family and home
And now it's finally here, you'll never be alone

CHORUS:
Sometimes you get what you want
Sometimes you get what you need

VERSE 2:
Looking in the past
Never looked attractive
The past is in the past
The future is what's active
Holding back the night
Holding back the tears
Tomorrow never comes
The present is what's here
Track Name: Some Grand Design
VERSE 1:
Hold my breath and dig deep down
It's dark down here, deep underground
Hold my chest, my heart beats slow
The dirt is warm, beneath the snow

VERSE 2:
Hold it in and I explode
Like I.E.Ds or volcanos
Truth be told I lack the nerve
To run right in, I always swerve

CHORUS:
I believe in you
Despite what eyes can see
This life is tainted
By negativity (so I say)
I believe in you
Despite what words they say
It's not so difficult
I know the price you paid

BRIDGE:
Every season has it's time
Appointed by some grand design
In sickness and in atrophy
You have always seen through me
No wasted days, no clever lies
Have ever added to my life
But one true thing exists in time
Someone gave their life for mine
Track Name: Filthy, Dirty
VERSE 1:
My filthy dirty hands
Stretched out to touch the wire
That separates my soul
My filthy damaged heart
Leaned backwards from the liar
To keep or lose control

VERSE 2:
This filthy dirty land
Seems endless all the time
But one day it will end
And back into the ground
We all go hand in hand
We'll all end up as friends
In the end

CHORUS:
I'm as scared as you're pretending not to be
Terrified by what this all could mean
We're just flames that are just flickering in the breeze
Terrified of losing everything
