andrew lorien This was the track that hit my heart. But "A mind all logic is like a knife all blade" from Modern Boy was the best lyric i've heard in months Favorite track: City Across The Bay.

Honey Bees 04:02
Ninety rain-stained records line your hall And custom locks you've just installed We worry only 'cause we have the gall You'll start a fight, you'll make a scene To defend your right to obscurity We worry only for these newfound needs But in the garden you can write And feels the sweat drip down your spine Hearing honey bees There is no spite, there is no shame But as a knight you've been misnamed We worry only where our sympathy's aimed But in the garden you can write And feel the sweat drip down your spine Hearing honey bees

City Across The Bay You turned this Boys’ High boy into a romantic Under the pine, your eyes are starlit ‘Cause I’ve been dropping my roots down, they’re growing deeper every day You can’t stop talking about the city right across the bay All these disagreements just keep adding up Now these topics are off the table ‘cause we’ll surely say too much Seems you’ve stopped inviting me out with your friends And when you do you make cheap jokes at my expense And I don’t need this, you don’t need me I don’t need this, you don’t need me You never asked for this commitment and those old ideas fill you with such dread But you can have it both ways and I’ll be there to put you to bed ‘Cause I’ve been dropping my roots down, they’re growing right into the clay You’re out walking around the garden ripe with thoughts you can’t explain Again and again telling me that you need your space But how do I make you want to talk about your day Tried making a fuss whenever you come home But more and more you just want to be left alone And I don’t need this, you don’t need me I don’t need this, you don’t need me Now everything keeps coming back to our walk that night And I reckon I couldn’t see shit in that starlight And I don’t need this, you don’t need me I don’t need this, you don’t need me
3.
Dalliance 03:46
Dalliance Arrived on the dot, two quivering quads through your petticoat Tried and true, melodramatic you know just how to coax We have the same eyes Some innocence lost, opportunities cost, what does your family think They’re yet to decide, accept me but deny it, still at the brink We list the same lies When it all changed, we just made sense I smelt your scent, I kissed your face You made me feel like no-one could stand in my way It’s blurred too fast, the interminable past, but I’m still on your side You’d roll your eyes, still roll your r’s as a point of pride We live the same lives When it all changed, we just made sense I smelt your scent, I kissed your face You made me feel like no-one could stand in my way
4.
Creature of Habit Quiet and tacit, you’re speaking my language I’m a creature of habit out of things to do ‘Cept chase the ripples and echoes, from the places you won’t go ‘Cause the people you get to know, will get to know you too And it’s a harsher light, outside of home Gotta grow right out of all bad habits And be as white as snow As snow You can hold a candle but I didn’t want this Wanna be just like anyone rolling down the river I’ve called your bluff, I’ve leant on your crutch But you can only say so much when you’re standing on the edge I’ve been your best friend, your worst foe A liferaft and a deathbow, but it’s only light and shadow Put your tail up in the air And it’s a harsher light, outside of home Gotta grow right out of all bad habits And be as white as snow As snow You can hold a candle but I didn’t want this Wanna be just like anyone rolling down the river I’m a creature of habit Take me as I am

Immortalised 03:19
Immortalised Standing on the rocks, just to tempt the sea, you took shots of me I reached out my hand, far as I could stand it, you turned and said I live my life through a lens, I live my life through a lens We can be immortalised. We can be immortalised When I checked the film, all that I could see, were shots of me Where did you go? And how was I to know, that you were stuck in there I live my life through a lens, I live my life through a lens We can be immortalised. We can be immortalised We can be immortalised. We can be immortalised I won’t be your negative again
6.
The Wrong Idea There are too many holes written into this script Did I end my hibernation for a winter flit? There were cracks overhead, there was a howling wind There was no other life to confide in Then you pulled away the creepers, you stroked my hair You nursed a flicker of confidence until it shone red There are too many holes written into this script I’ve always lived alone, now can I handle it? I’m feeling shaky now, gonna spill my guts I can be pretty smart for an idiot Oh, save me the time that I waste to get the wrong idea Day after day just us in the warmest blue I never thought of the cave I’d return to There were stars exploding outwards, you could smell the rain Our past weighing heavy, I will bear the strain Once the magic was gone we had nothing left Little to share in our safety net Still day after day just us in the warmest blue Until I realised the cave was you I’m feeling shaky now, gonna spill my guts I can be pretty smart for an idiot Oh, save me the time it takes to get the wrong idea Oh, save me the time that I waste to get the wrong idea Getting the wrong idea Getting the wrong idea Oh, save me Save me

Modern Boy 04:46
Modern Boy Now I have a weakness for younger men The way I can guide them to their rightful pens You were dressed like a detective but swallowed my lines I picked up your licence and saw a 90’s child Watching black and white movies, you’re pulling my greys Trying to assure me you’re mature for your age Now I know you well enough, you don’t need to lie Tell me again, who pays your rent each fortnight? ‘Cause you’re a modern boy, you only think of yourself Scared by the first sign of trouble, when I was expecting help Roasted myself on the fire, I’ve sat in limbo Today I’m covered in blankets of snow Not that you’d notice, we haven’t spoken in days There are no directions through this maze I’ve suffered your arrogance, I’ve settled your bets Now I know your weakness, let the games commence I wanna meet you in the middle, wipe the smirk from your face I need someone who’s my own age ‘Cause you’re a modern boy, you only think of yourself Scared by the first sign of trouble, when I was expecting help You’re so sophisticated, totally of the times And I’m trying to forgive you when you can do no right A mind all logic is like a knife all blade And I’ve cut these hands trying to get my own way Now I’m hiding in my heartache And I want a clean slate ‘Cause you’re a modern boy, you only think of yourself Scared by the first sign of trouble, when I was expecting help You’re so sophisticated, totally of the times And I’m trying to forgive you when you can do no right When you can do no right at all
8.
Get Cold Easily You search each room, and flick the lights as you go You’ve been on edge now there’s nobody home Pull the bread from the oven, let the smell fill the room Now you’re walking weightless in your own vacuum You clean your teeth and that tongue like you heard You pluck each eyebrow though the pain makes it worse Take off your dress and throw it to the ground Look in the mirror and wonder ‘what the hell do I do now?’ Can see you under the bedding Sending shivers across your sheets You were made in fire You were raised in fire And get cold easily Your bed’s so wide Hear the rain on the roof He’s left no trace And now I’m ready to bloom We can escape all those petty mistakes but there’s plenty still going on You’re making it work, getting what you deserve You don’t need to depend on a means to an end I wanted to say I was wrong You’re making it work, getting what you deserve You’re making it work, getting what you deserve Exactly what you deserve Amy

Python 04:19
Python Got all twisted behind a gypsy stall Now I hear your voice whisper through my walls You’re feeling better now, now you’ve settled down? You’d lead all your friends down to the docks Take your time and whatever else you want You’re feeling better now, now you’ve settled down? I’ll write once more just to name when and where You are a snake You are a python but I’ve grown the claws of a bear Fatal mistake Can’t level, can’t wait I still see you in the corners of my eyes Still feel your fingers running down my spine But you’re a world away, no matter what you claim She took me to her house last night It felt like an island but I don’t mind Still you’re a world away, no matter what you claim I’ll write once more just to name when and where You are a snake You are a python but I’ve grown the claws of a bear Fatal mistake Can’t level, can’t wait Feeling better now Feeling better now I’ll write once more just to name when and where You are a snake, after all You are a python but I’ve grown the claws of a bear Fatal mistake Can’t level, can’t wait Can’t level, can’t wait
10.
Any Last Words If you knew what I meant, I wouldn’t have to tell you what I meant If you knew what I liked, I wouldn’t be so disappointed in bed If you cared for me, I wouldn’t have to ignore you in social situations If you didn’t drink so much, I wouldn’t have to drug you slowly over time If you didn’t flirt with my friends, I wouldn’t have to chain you to that chair in our basement If you didn’t cheat on me, I wouldn’t have to bury you in the woods Any last words before I put you out of your misery?
11.
Never Invited There’s a light under your door And we can feel the warmth of the roaring fire All I wanted was a seat at your table To be treated as an equal, but I don’t want to fight It just hurts when you’re never invited There are cracks in the framework And we can smell the food, hear the sparkling wine All I wanted was a seat at your table You keep trying to wear me down, you won’t strip me of my pride It just hurts when you’re never invited All I wanted was a seat at your table I never came here to compete with you, we are on the same side All I wanted was a seat at your table It just hurts when you’re never invited
