Track Name: Concorde
Out west
The troubled souls
Refuse to go to rest
We will walk thru the desert
til our feet give out

oh so many contemporary
are determined to be the best
we remain firmly grounded
you with your head in the clouds
do i have to be loud
to attract a crowd?

Out west
The family tribe
Refuse to lie down
They will walk thru the desert
til their gods unite them

oh so many
contemporary
can't find a peaceful day
without a piece of real estate
or owning a piece of the ground
do we have to be loud
to attract a crowd?
Track Name: All Our Problems
All our problems
We never solved them
Track Name: Blushing
blushing, feeling the heat
watching you take off your clothes
turning, the world skips a beat
do you suppose...

that this might be one of those moments
when everything else ceases to be?

rushing right for the ground
fleeting, moments are lost
in between sight & sound
blushing is the only cost...

you may pay for one of those moments
when everything else turns to dust.
Track Name: Trembull
the moment i told him
he said i was acting like a fool
and would i be the bigger fool
if i told him i wasn't even acting?

is there not a time and place
in this short frame of mind
where it's more important who you are
than what you believe?

what i have control over
i can count on my fingers
who cares where my heart is
in my body or on my sleeve?

he said to me;
"you tremble like the coward
that you are,
if you didn't wanna fight
why were you put on this earth?
you tremble like that
fucking coward that you are,
better go down fighting
or don't go down at all!"

now i ball up my hands
feeling hand over fist
cracking my knuckles
trembling, more scared than angry

i'm not backing down this time
i'm not the innocent one
she's not the eva that broke our paradise
and maybe we're fortunate we're done...

he said to me;
"you tremble like the coward
that you are,
if you didn't wanna fight
why were you put on this earth?
you tremble like that
fucking coward that you are,
better go down fighting
or don't go down at all!"
Track Name: 24 Views of Mount Fuji (remix)
seasons followed one another
we always swallowed one another
no matter how big the lie

I’m doing dishes for your mother
I’m moving furniture for your father
no matter how hard i try

i couldn't sew the tear together if i wanted to
even in the moments of disorder, i still wanted you... oh

standing at the bottom
we were all tightly knit together
bit by bit
you all disappeared from the picture

reason came to replace passion
and you got obsessed with the fashion
and colour turned to black & white

you're out of focus & receding
and this film is proceeding
with or without the dialogue i write

i couldn't put the moments in order if i wanted to
it's not a question of whether i wanted to...

standing at the bottom
we were all tightly knit together
bit by bit
you all disappeared from the picture
