Track Name: Around Here & Everywhere
Where have those years gone?

Back again then gone.

Back again then gone.

Back again then gone.

Sudden sense of right and wrong.

Back again then gone.

Back again then gone.

Back again then gone.

Back again, then they're,

Back again then they're gone.

For now, this is what I love.

Stick around and see.

Sing and tap your feet.

And the dance, she breathes.

And the dance, she screams.

For now, this is what I,

For now, this is what I love.

Back again then they're gone.
Track Name: Calling In
Like a fish. Fish out of water,

Any other one call me out.

I’m busy, too fucking busy.

Working on it. Call me out.

Call me out. Call me out.

A trip away and I won’t doubt.

When I come back, don’t disappear.

One more year, any other year.

Smooth sailing,

Smooth sailing,

Smooth sailing, from me to you.

I'm scared to death of what I’ll be,

when we part eventually oh no.

"For now I love", is what I’ve said.

Hearing music in my head.

The ones we’ve made, the ones we’ll make.

For goodness sake, for goodness sake.

I’ll have the drinks and leave the tab.

I’ll have the good and leave the bad.

Smooth sailing.

Smooth sailing.

Smooth sailing, from me to.

Smooth sailing.

Smooth sailing.

Smooth sailing, from me to.

Smooth sailing.

Smooth sailing.

Smooth sailing, from me to.
Track Name: Foothold
I know, I can't show you the world.

Let sleeping dogs lie by the end of the bed.

I half-expect you, to forgive and forget and receive.

Moments like these they don't come for people like us.

A single breath, I can't afford to waste.

The rush in my body is melodic to me.

As I recall, life was oh-so much brighter.

It was dimmed by the love that claimed my soul.

So here we go.

A ship in a bottle with a flat-note.

Ocean's oh-so cold.

Loose in my home with a foothold.

So here we go.

A ship in a bottle with a flat-note.

Ocean's oh-so cold.

Loose in my home with a foothold.

So here we go.

A ship in a bottle with a flat-note.

Ocean's oh-so cold.

Loose in my home with a foothold.

So here we go.

A ship in a bottle with a flat-note.

Ocean's oh-so cold.

Loose in my home with a foothold.
Track Name: Denmark (1989)
You held your breath beneath the waves.

It’s the sound of silence that you craved.

As you rose to the surface gasping for air

You said, "Don’t you know.

Everything seems brighter from the grave."

They held our backs against the wall.

Not asking for much, but asking for more.

You told them to fuck off, and to take it all.

And said, "Don’t you know.

It’ll make it easier to walk."

You held my heart, though it seemed strange.

As we marched forth expecting change.

They turned to us, with fear in their eyes.

They said, "Don’t you know.

You live in this world, expected to lie."

We live in this world expected to compromise.
...
We live in this world together to compromise.
Track Name: Alright
Liars hide in plain sight.

Lovers say it's alright.

Liars hide in plain sight.

Lovers say it's alright.

I hope you had a nice flight

Everything is alright.

I hope you have a nice night.

Everything is alright.

And as I walk towards the light.

The liars turn to plead their fight.

And as I walk towards the light.

The liars turn to plead their fight.

Everything is alright.
