Track Name: Copper
Copper shimmer on your smile
The naked eye, your devil light.
Purple colours that you dream,
You dream on me and I am free.

Love forever when it’s cold.
Die together, born alone.

Stars that break and smash apart
A crystal heart,
Your shaking arm.
And minds that meet but never cross
A mental cost, is something wrong?

Close your eyes, don’t lose control.
Clear your mind and let it go.

Copper shimmer on your smile
The naked eye, your devil light.
Purple colours that you dream,
You dream on me and I am free.
Track Name: Voyage Home
Time, time, time flows like a river
From the source down to the sea.
But you, you, you, you are a mirror
For the storms that sunder us beached.

First Officer! Call for the captain!
Red sails doth fly!
Where lies paradise
If world’s end bears down?

None, none, none thought that forever,
Was a song that sea-farers sung.
But the rum, rum, rum has poisoned their chorus.
And the lungs are black with the dust.

Oh Sailor John! The peril is growing,
Some plague sleeps below.
North Star! Lead us home,
‘Fore DEATH plays her hand.

Oh Carpenter, the stench from the cabin,
Long meat there hangs.
Dream, dream of Crystal shores,
To wash these sins away.
Track Name: Historicity
Tell me that it’s got some history,
A family tree, a little mystery.
Tell me that’s old and it’s unique,
Let it speak tales of bravery.

One touch and I tunnel down the sands,
A foreign land – this is so real to me.
It’s everything I want the past to be.
It’s future-free, this historicity.

Everything I own becomes a shell,
My legs are hell, creaking under strain.
I’d give it all to have my piece-of-eight.
Is it too late to participate?

One touch and I tunnel down the sands,
A foreign land – this is so real to me.
It’s everything I want the past to be.
It’s future-free, this historicity.

One touch and I tunnel down the sands,
A foreign land – this is so real to me.
It’s everything I want the past to be.
It’s future-free, this historicity.
Track Name: Blood Oranges
Give me a reason, show me a sign.
This plot could thicken soon.
I know the answer, you are not mine
But maybe we should see this through.

Blood oranges, can you hear me smile?
Are these people all my friends?
Blood oranges, let me drink it down.
This whole place has gone to hell.

Where are you going?
Who do you know?
Where did you think we’d turn?
I heard you slept in North Street Arcade
To catch the ones who let it burn.

Blood oranges, can you hear me smile?
Does this potion make amends?
Blood oranges, let me drink it down.
Will our children understand?

How we stood by and let
How we stood by and let
Everything burn to the
Everything burn to the ground…

Blood oranges, can you hear me smile?
Are these people all my friends?
Blood oranges, let me drink it down.
This whole place has gone to hell.

Pink, grey and blue, purple, orange, gold,
Silver, copper, green and red.
Blood oranges, let me drink it down,
Will our children understand?
