Track Name: Telephones & Traffic Lights
Telephones and Traffic lights
Always waiting for the right time
Cross the line and pick up walking
Never waiting for a sign

I've waited there
It did not show
So disregard I've overthrown
I've picked me up
Dusted off
And fall back in
I'm so messed up

And a weight
Bigger then me is in practice here
And the earth is levelling me
And I know all that was said corrected now
But your force still drags me

Hours feel like months and years
I'm growing old with my impatience
But I won't go out quietly
I'll shout until it's found

While all the worlds fast asleep
A dim light flickers on at me
You’ve turned it up, turned it off
You closed the door with my foot stuck

And a weight
Bigger then me is in practice here
And the earth is levelling me
And I know all that was said corrected now
But your force still drags me

Please give me back the parts that I forgot
The ride broke down but you won't let me off

And a weight
Bigger then me is in practice here
And the earth is levelling me
And I know all that was said corrected now
But your force still drags me
Track Name: Valentines
You gave me a cloud
It’s weight overwhelming
So I dropped the light
To hold it with both hands
But you kicked the sun
Right into a storm drain
Though you dragged your feet
I bet you were aiming

That thing on my sleeve
It used to be beating
Now a stain on my clothes
I'm sure I can bleach it
Thought you'd borrow my shoes
I hoped they would fit ya’
All the feet the same size
And I'm one size bigger

To my Valentine
Your present is waiting
I washed it all dry
I hope it will fit now
I passed it around
Guess it made an impression
So here is your cloud
And thanks for my lesson
Track Name: Josephine
Josephine,
Where you been?
Waited up for you again
See that phone?
It played no tone
And no notes to my name

Every time
Too much wine
Leads us up to this
If I can’t get it through with words
I’ll show you with my fist

Josephine
What have you done to me?
I love you more than life itself
Tell on me
Call in the cavalry
They’ll be no time for help

Sweet sixteen
My Josephine
You took my hand and made a home
Broke my dreams
Of family trees
A seed you could not sow

I neglect
So you invest
In every man who calls your name
Beg me more
My barren whore
I’ll teach you just the same

Josephine
What have you done to me?
I love you more than life itself
Tell on me
Call in the cavalry
They’ll be no time for help

I can see you Josephine
No doors, nor walls
Hide you from me
Till death do us part my love
And that will be today

Huff and puff
We all fall down
Hand on heart where knife is found
You showed me
Josephine
Don’t walk away…

Josephine
What have you done to me?
I loved you more than life itself
Call for me
Call in the cavalry
They’ll be no time for help
Track Name: Whatcha Gonna do with My Heart
If I told you it was alright
That my guards come down
Whatcha’ gonna do with my heart?
And the shield falls
And I'm standing
Waiting for the blow
Whatcha’ gonna do with my heart

Well it's there for you
To do all you think to do
Just me, you
Whatcha gonna put it through?

Should I leave it unattended
Or it's found misplaced
Whatcha gonna do with my heart?
If you lose yours
You can take some
Fill the empty space
Whatcha gonna do with my heart?

Well it's there for you
To do all you think to do
Just me, you
Whatcha gonna put it through?

If I told you it was alright
That my guards come down
Whatcha’ gonna do with my heart?
And the shield falls
And I'm standing
Waiting for the blow
Whatcha’ gonna do with my heart
Track Name: Synergy
I lost my way
The moment I arrived
Is this some dream?
Or is the freak show live?
My blinding faith
Illuminates the night
I get to the rainbows end but
I can't see the light

Synergy, give me some energy
To make it through when I can't do it
Could it be fear has got a hold of me?
And won't let go I'm sure to know my
Misery’s needing some company
It lives inside my foolish pride
And won't go away

Inside my head
The devil sings to me
I used to sing along
But the tunes gone all off key
Amidst the noise
I struggle for my break
Keep crawling earnestly
Till’ the cramp starts to awake

Synergy, give me some energy
To make it through when I can't do it
Could it be fear has got a hold of me?
And won't let go I'm sure to know my
Misery’s needing some company
It lives inside my foolish pride
And won't go away
