Track Name: Monolith
*Instrumental*
Track Name: Getting Old
Let the sun come down
before the beams of your car come around
Let the door slam shut
erase my mind of you
I want it all forgot

your heart it won't grow
but that everybody knows
the army has died
england will never rise

let the stars die
don't let anything else survive

but if you think of those years gone by
and how we wasted each others time
remember, every birthday death's nearer
and now you've found you've run out of time
because

we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
we are getting old
Track Name: Silver
Oh you got the razor
it reflects the light
of sunshine from your hands
you're a drugged eraser
curse dark and light
the sun, the moon's starred cosmic fight

high on silver
high on silver

now you know were to go
but not where you've been
you're a picture shattered out of the frame

do you know your name?
do you know your name?
are they all the same?
are they all the same?

high on silver
high on gasoline
high on silver
high on kerosine

do you know your name?
do you know your name?
are they all the same?
are they all the same?

fe-fi-fe-fi-fe-fo-thumb
I smell the blood of an English man
fe-fi-fe-fi-fe-fo-thumb
I smell the blood of an English man
fe-fi-fe-fi-fe-fo-thumb
I smell the blood of an English man
fe-fi-fe-fi-fe-fo-thumb
I smell the blood of an English man

high on silver
high on kerosine
Track Name: Here In The Far
Out in the distance
here in the far
is the land you dream
is the man you are

every drop of blood
painted in hate
makes a fool of you
an ugly portrait

what do you want to be
when you'er big and grown?
who do you want to be
when you're on your own?

what did you really think
would come of this?
what did you really want
when you stoll that kiss

broken hearts from long ago
have been hurting others
broken hearts from long ago
will never recover
broken hearts from long ago
have been hurting others
broken hearts from long ago
will never recover

in the wet street
the tramps dance
what do they see
in each others arms
do they feel joy?
could it be shame?
do you feel that?
are we all the same?

who are we letting down most
in our personal hell
we're heroes in our own home
we must face it alone

like the field to the plough
like the sand to the sea
like the iron to rust
like the axe to the tree

the mirror you have is black
no face will be turning back
tarnished in your golden frame
the feeling won't be coming back again

broken hearts from long ago
have been hurting others
broken hearts from long ago
will never recover!
Track Name: WTF
wake up, fall apart,
get together and start over a-new
working, broken heart
make beliving. forgotten all about you

why don't you break my heart
tear it apart,
make my world come down to the ground

wake up, fall apart,
get together and start over a-new
thinking about the past
trying to think, about who was fooling who

why don't you break my heart
tear it apart,
make my world come down to the ground

what would you do if you were me
would you see what you wanted see
would you see things from my point of view
or would you do exactly what you wanted to

wake up, fall apart,
get together and start over a-new
working, broken heart
make believing. forgotten all about you

wake up, fall apart,
get together, who's really fooling who

you said 'I can't give you what you need'
but I don't know who you want me to be
you said 'I can't give you what you need'
but I don't know who the fuck you want me to be

what do you want from me baby,
what do you want from me baby,
why don't you think about that
why don't you think about that

and I get old
and I get old
and older, older, older again
another year passes by

but nothing happens
nothing happens
and no I don't mind you wasting my time

and I get old
and I get old
and older, older, older again
another year passes by

but nothing happens
nothing happens
and no I don't mind you wasting my time

you're wasting my time
and nothing happens, and nothing happens.
and no I don't mind you wasting my time.
Track Name: Heart Attack
I want to be asleep now.
I don't wanna be in love
Your dancing on a knifes edge honey.
You're falling from above.

I had a heart attack.
I had a heart attack.
Crying for what I lack
Do you want me back?
I had a heart attack.
I had a heart attack.
Crying for what you lack
Do you want me back?

So maybe you should go, take a shower.
Maybe you should wash and go
Use the domestic products
and dream of fields of gold.

And Maybe you should go! Run away!
Maybe you could leave me now!
It always seams this way,
We'll never know why or how because...

I had a heart attack.
I had a heart attack.
Crying for what I lack
Do you want me back?
I had a heart attack.
I had a heart attack.
Crying for what you lack
Do you want me back?

A heart so weak it could be dying,
If only you knew how hard I'm trying.
All the things I do and say
They mean nothing to you, anyway...

But the force is coming on way too strong
so why the hell should it feel so wrong
you kiss me now, I'm so high I could fly.
How long have I waited for you to be by my side?
You know!

I had a heart attack.
I had a heart attack.
Crying for what I lack
Do you want me back?
I had a heart attack.
I had a heart attack.
Crying for what you lack
Do you want me back?

My heart keeps beating this way.
Track Name: Cinderella
Cinderella's dead we know
she died on a Wednesday,
an overdose

and all her lovers lost at sea
dance in the winds force
screaming at me.
and all the temples
all the time
leaving your lovers
one at a time.

and all the people
all the ghosts
drown in the silence
of letting you go

rain falling down
rain falling down

I thought I saw your face at the window?
at the window.

So let us die
and never part
together for the rest of time
no more waking
no more fearing
nameless
endless
loving and sharing.
Track Name: Post-mortem
Post-mortem put my life in a box for me
send as a letter by sea
send me as far as can be
as can be

Post-mortem put your life in a box for me
crush under waves in the sea
you meant nothing to me
you meant nothing to me
to me
to me
at all.
