Track Name: Stray Cats
There’s a man shouting he’s not alone,
while the stray cats they meow along,
they meow along, all night long.

I watch the whole scene up on your roof
struggling with words as the flames of the sun
they go out and night's on.
The night is on.

And as far as I recall
I know the things I should’ve done.
Lend me your hand, show me your smile,
give me the key to open up your door.

There’s a man shouting you’re not alone
while the night shadows they spread out at once
but I know the song.
I know the song.

And as far as I recall
I know the things I should’ve done.
Lend me your hand, show me your smile,
give me the key to open up your door.
Track Name: Take Me Down
Take me down

I feel what I feel
'cos the lines that I draw take me where I want to be
I see what I see
'cos time passes so quick there ain’t no need to repeat

Won't you take me down my song

I cry what I cry
though the tears don't come out and your lips seem to seal
And I think what I think
but be sure I won't walk in the slime anymore
Won't you take me down my song
Why don't you take me down my song
This is all we got - sing your song!

If I don't get along I'll try to be strong
If we don't get along I'll try to be strong
Sing your song, my song, our song, their song

Won't you take me down my song
Why don't you take me down my song

This is all we got - sing your song!
This is all we got...
Track Name: Tick tock
Tick Tock

Tick tock sings
night is clockwise ticking
summer flings,
flying bikes and witches winks
nightmare time
wake up tied to dreams we dream

Tick tock ticks
time is all we need to feel
sounds that rise
up the ceiling, lullabies
that they hum
eyelids flip for closing down
Track Name: Nose Dive
Nose Dive

Then you sit on the sofa
with a popcorn bowl and a bottle of cola
the TV is on but you're staring into the distance
Then you open your laptop up
looking for something that you know that never comes
then you close it down once again without knowing
Where's the sign you’re supposed to decode

Then you sit on the window seal
with a glass ashtray full of cigarettes
roll the last of the night and smoke your tears away
then you lose your shoe and watch it fall out
like a wounded bird who flies adrift down
then you think about the things you never think about
Where's the faith you're supposed to have

No reason to fly when you look up the sky
and you don't get what you really want
No reason to cry when you look at your eyes
and you don't see what you're looking at
when love takes a nosedive...
Track Name: So, please
So, please

Don’t know, don’t know what is wrong
but my love glides along the floor

Bad dreams are breaking up my walls

So, please turn the lights on

Colors thin down as we grow
I leave no, leave no stone unturned

Sorry, I’m sorry for this world

So, please turn the lights on
