Track Name: Song for Eliot
The evenings out against the sky
Half deserted streets where you and I
Explore the aching corners of our minds
Like patients on a table etherised
The yellow smoke that falls from window panes
Lingers on the pools that stand on drains
There’s time to murder and create
To lift and drop a question from your plate
I've known the evenings, mornings, afternoons
I've measured out my life with coffee spoons
And all that's left is you
I hear the dying voices dying fall
Beneath the music heard beyond the hall
I've know the eyes already known them all
When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall
But how should I begin to change my ways
To spit out all the butt ends of my days
When my weak spirit quickens to rebel
I've known my heart already known it well
Track Name: Captive
Changing you face, finding a place to hide
Thinking your free and knowing you’re trapped inside
Wondering why he won’t let you go
But questions equal pain you know

Your memory fades form weeks and days alone
Vague pictures of those you used to know
Maybe now it’s time to escape
But failure now would seal your fate

Building up a rapport with your captor
Thinking you’re changing his mind
Feeling so low as he takes you
Away from your home. Ruins your life
And you say that you feel so lonely
Well I don’t understand you now
I don’t know. Run away

The patterns on the wall pass the time
Holding you for ransom day and night
Scattered needles glow and ease the pain
But nothing now can ease your shame

Building up a rapport with your captor
Thinking you’re changing his mind
Feeling so low as he takes you
Away from your home. Ruins your life
And you say that you feel so lonely
Well I don’t understand you now
I don’t know. Run away
Track Name: Time is the Cure
Open the bottle at night. Out pours the fears of the day
Sometimes the pain washes away
Love makes a noise downstairs. Making you all too aware.
Of the life and times you used to share.

You won’t take him back but you can’t sleep
It’s a promise I hope you won’t keep

Just when you thought you’re okay. The life that you lead starts to change
Find out he played away and life’s on the same old track

You won’t take him back but you can’t sleep
It’s a promise I hope you won’t keep

Time is the cure and not someone else
You’re hurting yourself and drinking won’t help
Track Name: Social Disguise
On you they change and set your mind on fire
On you they trace a lust that’s in your eyes
Time slips away and everyone you see here is afraid
The same old lies that hide behind your eyes

Left a broken home to break a social chain
Time spent alone doesn’t ease the pain
Your social disguise wears a little thin in others eyes

You try to smile. Try to hide the pain
If only for a while you look the other way

Everybody knows, it doesn’t change your mind
All out on show and pressure builds inside
You come out one day and everything inside you blows away

You try to smile. Try to hide the pain
If only for a while you look the other way
