Track Name: No Divider
No Divider - Lyrics

You sent me back to where I belong
I’ve run these tracks for far too long
I know that you’ll change your mind
But I’ll be gone

There came a time, when I should’ve said
“This isn’t working”, but I didn’t dare
I always wanted you to care
But I should’ve known
I should’ve known

You put me back in my rightful place
You told me there’s no divider between love and hate
You said that I should stop dreaming
That we could escape some day
‘Cause we couldn’t get away.

I never thought, that we’d end up like this
Part of this broken stereotype
I thought we could resist
But there was something I has missed
And I should’ve known
I should’ve known.

You put me back in my rightful place
You told me there’s no divider between love and hate
You said that I should stop dreaming
That we could escape some day
‘Cause we couldn’t get away.

I think it's time that I was gone
It's true that I can't face up to what we've become
I know I need to get away
You've said the things that I thought you would never say
You sent me back where I belong
You told me everything I ever said was wrong
I wish that I could get away
You've said the things that I thought you would never say

You put me back in my rightful place
You told me there’s no divider between love and hate
You said that I should stop dreaming
That we could escape…
And we couldn’t get away.

You sent me back, to where I belong.
Track Name: Turnaround
Turnaround – Lyrics

Burning in this silence
All your colours fade to red
You worry about your violence
And what you said.
Burning in this silence
The train goes running off the track
If you speak your words like a hurricane
Then you will never get them back

You said “There’s one way up and one way down
But somewhere there’s a way around
And I wonder if you’ll be the one
To save me from the things I’ve done
And I’m hoping that you’ll stick it out
Where the other’s patience all ran out
‘Cause I need
I need a turnaround.”

You told me it all went wrong
Somewhere down a one way street
You said “I left my heart in a trash can
And now it won’t come back to me”
You worry that you’re out of control That you’re out of control
You say, you say, you say
”I lost my heart, I threw it away
I just threw it away”
You worry that you’re out of control That you’re out of control
You say “It’s just bad luck I turned out this way
That I turned out this way.

And there’s one way up and one way down
But somewhere there’s a way around
And I wonder if you’ll be the one
To save me from the things I’ve done
And I’m hoping that you’ll stick it out
Where the other’s patience all ran out
‘Cause I need
I need a turnaround.
You worry that you’re out of control, that you’re out of control

You said “There’s one way up and one way down
But somewhere there’s a way around
And I wonder if you’ll be the one
To save me from the things I’ve done
And I’m hoping that you’ll stick it out
Where the other’s patience all ran out
‘Cause I need
I need a turnaround.”

I told you it’s all in your mind
You pay the price for what you find
I told you it’s all in your head
So just take back the things you said
Stop burning in your silence
That you could break with just a word
And when other’s say that it’s not worth it
Just remember what you’ve learnt

‘Cause there’s one way up but more ways down
And somewhere there’s a way around
And now I’ll be glad that I’m the one
To save you from the things you’ve done
And I’m hoping that you’ll stick it out
When the others’ confidence runs out
‘Cause you know
They need a turnaround.
Track Name: Elevator Jazz
Elevator Jazz – Lyrics

Was walking down a well known street, somewhere I’d been before
I looked up and recognized the guy who lived next door
And, being me, I had to ask why he was staring at the floor
He said “Girl, you don’t know how it is when your life is just a bore.”

He said “there’s nothing left, no more success and everything I had
Has got so low from bad ringtones to elevator jazz.
Elevator Jazz…

‘Cause ever since I quit my job well things have gone downhill
Even when I think I just feel positively ill
And even after all these years I know I’m still to blame
But where have all the good things gone, why is everything so lame?”

I said “Stop! You’re driving me insane!”

He said “there’s nothing left, no more success and everything I had
Has got so low from bad ringtones to elevator jazz.”

I said “Oh just get lost you’ve got no life so why you telling me?
Go join the chavs now you’ve worked out that there’s nothing else to be!
And maybe on those rainy days when there’s nothing else to do
Go sit inside the elevator, let the Jazz take over you”

He said “oh don’t be stupid, do you really think I am that sad?
But then again… that quiet jazz… I guess it’s not so bad.”

I said “Oh for heavens sake, get a life.”
Elevator Jazz
Track Name: Hourglass
Hourglass – Lyrics

Make tracks in the snow
Wondering where you’ll go
Standing in the rain
You wonder why you’re laughing through the pain

You walk along
the sandy paths of stone
Your heart’s made of gold
If that’s the case, then why are you so cold?

Lost again, running through the rain
Colours disappearing just like everything else

You try to run but it’s too late
you’ve sealed your frozen twisted fate
You’ve broken dreams, too many lies
The fire’s burning in your eyes and you know
Your time has come
Time to run.

You crash through the door
There’s writing on the wall,
You know you’ve got just seconds left to fall

You’re out of time, you see it all
You read the writing on the wall
It says what you don’t want to hear
Your time is up, the end is near

You try to run but it’s too late
you’ve sealed your frozen twisted fate
You’ve broken dreams, too many lies
The fire’s burning in your eyes and you know
Your time has come
There’s no time to run

You’re like an empty hourglass
The sand’s all gone, it didn’t last
The clock strikes midnight, soon you’ll see
Just how it feels to live like me…
Empty.

Have mercy on your soul
You’re not the first to fall
And now we’ll both live in the past
Because the present didn’t last.
Track Name: What You Did Wrong
What You Did Wrong – Lyrics

I turn away
After all this time I’m getting bored
I hear you say
My selfish attitude can’t be ignored
You walk away
Leaving me alone, again
You enjoy
This stupid little game

And you’re trying to show me
That I have to do things your way
Saying ‘talk to the hand’
That’s not how it’s gonna be
‘Cause I always get the last laugh
When you don’t understand
What you did wrong

‘This is child’s play’
You hear me complain
You still play with your racing cars
You still don’t put your dirty clothes away
How, am, I, meant to live like this?
When all you do is make a mess
And when I ask don’t bother to confess

And you’re trying to show me
That I have to do things your way
Saying ‘talk to the hand’
That’s not how it’s gonna be
‘Cause I always get the last laugh
When you don’t understand
What you did wrong

I’m fed up of you
And all the times you try to play pretend
Real people’s lives can’t mimic
those of barbie dolls and action men
Just get out I can’t take this anymore
You’ve shown me your true colours
and as payback I’ll be showing you the door

Now you’re trying to tell me
I don’t have to do things your way
So you hold out your hand
Yet you know that it’s too late
And as I shut the door
I know you’ll never understand
What you did wrong
You’ll never understand
You’ll never understand.
Track Name: Simplicity Refined
Simplicity Refined – Lyrics

I don’t believe you that you’re ‘under control’
‘Cause I know that we’ve been round this before
Tripping up in ways I don’t understand and
I’m not helping you up anymore.
You said ‘what’s the difference?’ and ‘it’s just how we roll’
Started telling me how I didn’t know.
Maybe you’re right in ways I don’t understand
But I won’t be the one to hold out my hand

I’d follow in your footsteps if they’d take me anywhere
But there’s no point in looking for an escape that isn’t there
It’s your imagination that is helping you survive
Living out your lies is all that’s keeping you alive.

You start to say how I’m simplicity refined
And if I think you’re wrong then I must be blind.
You’re as cold as ice and twenty times
as sharp as broken glass
Like broken glass.
You said ‘what’s the difference?’ and ‘It’s just how I am’
Maybe it’s better off you don’t understand.
I don’t believe you that you’re back in control
‘Cause I know that we’ve been round this before

I’d follow in your footsteps if they’d take me anywhere
But there’s no point in looking for an escape that isn’t there
It’s your imagination that is helping you survive
Living out your lies is all that’s keeping you alive.
I’d follow in your footsteps if they’d take me anywhere
But there’s no point in looking for an escape that isn’t there
It’s your imagination that is helping you survive
Living out your lies is all that’s keeping you alive.
Track Name: Video Game
Video Game – Lyrics

You say I’m going round again
when you know that I don’t care
‘Cause if you look around you there are circles everywhere
The path you take is a choice you make
but there’s always those who say
“You take your lifelines one by one and you throw them all away”

And I, I keep on rolling down this road
Over and over again
There’s no other places for me to go
So I follow your footsteps ‘til the end
Over and Over.

You say I’ve made mistakes but then you pick on anything
You walk into my life and you start changing everything
The path I take is a choice I’ll make but there’s you who’ll always say
“You take your lifelines one by one, and you do it wrong again!”

But I, I keep on rolling down this road
Over and over again
There’s no other places for me to go
So I follow your footsteps ‘til the end
Over and Over.

You tell me life’s a video game but I don’t wanna play
I’ve got no lives left and besides, it was boring anyway
I’ve said I’ll quit and I’ll give up, I’ve thrown it all away
I’ll take my lifelines, one by one, and I’ll just play again

I, I keep on rolling down this road
Over and Over again
There’s no other places for me to go
So I follow your footsteps ‘til the end
…Over and over.
Track Name: Chainlink Fence
Chainlink Fence – Lyrics

Once again when he walked in
She was sitting staring at the wall.
Apart from the floor she was sitting on
In that room there was nothing there at all.
She said “I’ve jumped the tracks, I can’t get back
So can you help me turn my life around?
Help me destroy this chainlink fence
Tear it apart and bring it to the ground.”

He said “just wait a while and in good time
We’ll take this fence and tear it to the floor,
And after that you’ll be just fine
And someday you won’t need me anymore
Anymore
Anymore.”

When he knocked on the front door
She was stressed about nothing at all.
The small wooden chair she was sitting on
Was on the far side, facing the wall.
He said “now take deep breaths and count to ten
Just watch all your troubles slip away…”
She said “it doesn’t work! I’m seeing red
It’s all the same as it was yesterday.”

He said “just wait a while and in good time
We’ll take this fence and tear it to the floor,
And after that you’ll be just fine
And someday you won’t need me anymore
Anymore
Anymore.”

She said “oh I give up, it’s been 3 months
I’m still the same as I was back then!
In anything, I’m getting worse
This baby talk of fences is insane!”
He said “it’s not my fault, I’ve tried my best
You don’t listen to anything I say.
How can I help when all you do
Is throw things and shout about yesterday?!”

She said “I’ve waited ages, you can’t help
And I won’t put up with you anymore…
You still call yourself a doctor
When your patients leave you crying on the floor!
So… you’re fired.”
Track Name: Tropical Isolation
Tropical Isolation – Lyrics

We’re on our way, we need a good vacation
We’re flying high, we know our destination
And when you need some inspiration
You’d better try tropical isolation

And you
You can leave your work behind you for a week or two
Yeah
Yes you
You can put yourself on recharge it’s just me and you
Yeah, Yeah
We need tropical isolation

We’re on the beach, we’ve got that cool sensation
You feel the heat, in your imagination
So come on in, let’s try some re-hydration
It’s all we need; tropical isolation

And you
You can leave your work behind you for a week or two
Yeah
Yes you
You can put yourself on recharge it’s just me and you
Yeah, Yeah
We’ve got tropical isolation

Back home, blue sky is far behind us
In your routine there is no time to wonder
It’s real in your imagination
You need it now; tropical isolation

And you
You can leave your work behind you for a week or two
Yeah
Yes you
You can put yourself on recharge it’s just me and you
Yeah, Yeah
We need tropical isolation
Track Name: Stuck in Reverse
Stuck in Reverse – Lyrics

Lost property
I beg to differ from society
It’s all the same, everyday’s eventuality
Stuck in reverse.

This is the last of you
Windows shattering inside of you
You know it’s over darkness creeping over you
Stuck in reverse.

Chaos and destruction
Drives the cold blood through your veins
You know it’s not gonna be today
But you’re hoping to escape
You were letting no one in
And now you’ll pay the price:
Throwing your whole life away and
Hoping it’s alright

Not how it’s meant to be
You beg to fit in with society
There’s no escape when you’re immune to individuality
Stuck in reverse.

Chaos and destruction
Drives the cold blood through your veins
You know it’s not gonna be today
But you’re hoping to escape
You were letting no one in
And now you’ll pay the price:
Throwing your whole life away and
Hoping it’s alright

Chaos and destruction
Drives the cold blood through your veins
You know it’s not gonna be today
But you’re hoping to escape
You were letting no one in
And now you’ll pay the price:
Throwing your whole life away and
Hoping it’s alright.
