Track Name: Turnaround Town
Lyrics:

It´s still the evening of the day
We sit and look out cross the bay
Let´s just not get swept away
In all this subtle disarray
This is turnaround town
This is turnaround town
While we´ve been busy going wrong
They tried to steal our every song
But this is turnaround town
This is turnaround town
I just wanna be in this dumb company
Cause I don´t think it´s funny to just follow that money
Way down the river to where they deliver
The goods I don´t need to the swines that they feed
cause this
this is
this is turnaround town.
Track Name: Sky Town Love
Lyrics:

You hear the wind blowing
You see the shops closing too
The little cracks are showing everywhere around you
And you say oh
this is not your home
Oh
this is not your home
You watch the sea rise
And it gets into your eyes
Well that old college vow
You´ve got to make it now
And you say oh
this is not your home
Oh
this is not your home
So many birds have gone
So many cars move on
So many broken songs
Find you a new one
There´s gonna be a new sky
and a new town
and a new love ahead of you
Track Name: Like Lovers
Lyrics:

Walls of love come up when you get close to me
You and me, we should stop this in its tracks
In the trees the birds they seem to laugh at me
Flying up and never coming back
They feel this is not real, we`re only trying
They know this kind of stuff will just blow up
In our faces, in our eyes they just can see it, see it, see it
We`re just here to feel like lovers feel
And in our hearts we both know we`ll never be it, be it, be it
But when we kiss we`re feeling just like lovers
What would be if I just kept your hand in mine
And grew accustomed to your skin
You and me, two soldiers dancing out of line
Against the emptiness within
We know we might not win, we`re only running
But looking round I don`t wanna be at war
Cause in our faces, in our eyes they just can see it, see it, see it
We`re just here to feel like lovers feel
And in our hearts we both know we`ll never be it, be it, be it
But when we kiss we`re feeling just like lovers
They feel this is not real, and they are right, you know
You hear the silence just before the bang?
Cause in our faces, in our eyes they just can see it, see it, see it
We just came here to feel like lovers
And in our hearts we both know we`ll never be it, be it, be it
But when we kiss we`re feeling just…
And if you stay maybe someday we both could see it, see it, see it
Waking up and feeling just like lovers
Exchanging rings and planting seeds and then we`ll be it, be it, be it
Then let `em laugh cause we`ll be perfect lovers
Track Name: It Doesn't Matter Where You Are
Lyrics:

So you´re planning a fast escape in someone else´s car
The engine´s running
But your thoughts could never run that far
It doesn´t matter
It doesn´t matter, no
It doesn´t matter where you are
So you´ve learned your lesson
in the fast repetition of meaningless moves
And the wind just draws you backwards
How you stick to this magnetic blues
It doesn´t matter
It doesn´t matter, no
It doesn´t matter where you are
No, they can´t take that away from you
No, they can´t take that away
It doesn´t matter
It doesn´t matter, no
It doesn´t matter where you are
Track Name: Bring Me The Head
Lyrics:

Now the battle´s surely won
Tired soldier on the run
Satisfaction´s guaranteed
Bring me just one thing I need
Bring me the head of no one wrapped in gold
Find me some shed, nowhere, small and old
Now the peace is made for sure
And all the doctors know their cures
I´m hanging on, I´m conquering on
Wait for the day when I´ll feel strong
Bring me the head of no one wrapped in gold
Find me some shed, some legend left untold
Bring me the head of someone that I know
Find me a shed in the past I used to know
Bring me the head of no one
Bring me the head of no one
Bring me the head of no one
Wrapped in gold.
Track Name: Rings Around Myself
Lyrics:

Here`s my reason, I`ve got no reason, the reason I`ve had has disappeared
Love came shining, love came blinding
And then it sort of left me here
The place goes crazy about some rhythm, hammering till the morning comes
A blur of bodies, hands keep reaching, reaching out for anyone
So I`m dancing, so I`m mingling, gonna party my heart out in here
Here`s my reason, I need no reason, the reason I had has disappeared
Love gets lost, the emptiness is full of stars
I`m getting dizzy drawing rings around myself
Keep up the noise and put a drink in front of me
I`m only wrestling with myself
Drawing rings around myself
So here`s where I am and here`s where I`ll be to take another chance
We`re not being loved, just being fucked
But hey, come join the dance
Love gets lost….
And if I could I`d throw it all away
Track Name: Someone's City
Lyrics:

Someone´s city not mine, that´s what I´m shown
Amidst all this construction I stand alone
So will we always feel like strays?
And will we always count the days?
Someone´s city not yours, you can´t get inside
It´s not just money or class, it´s a question of pride
I recognized the way you came in here tonight
This city don´t want you
So you don´t want the city alright
This city don´t want you
So you don´t want the city alright
Alright, alright
Someone´s city not mine
Someone´s city not mine
And I could bite my tongue and get close to the bone
Till one day I can afford what people call a home
But this is
Someone´s city not mine
Someone´s city not mine
