Track Name: Don't Shoot!
Red is me
Who is you
He came too
But she could not see

Don’t Leave

Cross the line
Bend in time
Push your foot
And spin the flak

Don’t Shoot
Track Name: Wildcard
Know you shine, hope you’re mine
There’s a million other people here inside
Find your space, fix the mace
Don’t believe you could be any other place

Your head is the one that we’re after
Who has the best appearance?
Your head is the one that we’re after
What is all the fuss?

Close the gate, lock the door
It was something that had taken you before
Last a while, best ever smile
You’ll never know whatever comes the after

Your head is the one that we’re after
Who has the best appearance?
Your head is the one that we’re after
What is all the fuss?
Track Name: Where's the Clown
Howlin’ out
You couldn’t if you had to
Something wrong
You saw it in the long view
Get it done
It’s not like it’d be like you

Calling all bases to fix themselves underground
Calling all bases to fix themselves when you’re down
Down

Curtain falls
You see it in the distance
The one who calls
Is your other halves resistance
Air it out
And hope it never finds you

Calling all bases to fix themselves underground
Calling all bases to fix themselves when you’re down
Down

Calm it down
It’s just another freak out
Where’s the Clown?
He never even left town
Talk about
A reason to be let down

Calling all bases to fix themselves underground
Calling all bases to fix themselves when you’re down
Down
Track Name: Reservations
You got to lose your reservations
You got to be the best you can
Don’t fall for their insane delusions

I see you have a guiding hand
When the world tries to make a stand
And I know that you’ll understand
That I see you have a guiding hand

Don’t say you’re sorry

You got to stitch up your contusions
You got to be the better man
Don’t fall for their insane delusions

I see you have a guiding hand
When the world tries to make a stand
And I know that you’ll understand
That I see you have a guiding hand

Don’t say you’re sorry (it’s over)
Track Name: Future Lies With You
Burnt damage of the beauty fleet you go
Can’t stand the flow
And it’s all because
It’s all been set to you

Thick set, walking through the floor
I’m ready to go
And he slowly comes
He slowly comes undone

Drain the swamp, foot rot it seems that you’re
You’re ready to know
And he knows what’s his
What’s his to turn around

Foot rot sitting in a black burst
Time’s bout up to cry in disgust
Cast yourself
The future lies with you

It’s only you, it’s only you, it’s only you
The future lies with you
Track Name: Driving Me Sane
On again, off again
Who knows what tonight will bring
Drinking straight, while I wait
I cannot push my poison onto you
Over you

I’m sick of when you pretend
But cannot take my eyes off you
12 bar blues what’s the use
I cannot push my poison onto you
Over you

Sympathise, I realise
All that you could never be
Washed away, another day
I cannot push my poison onto you
Over you
Track Name: Gaslighting
heavy fog all about today
sepia tone seeping into my bones
orange cloud under the sky
it's getting hard to see with all the gas lighting
yeah the gaslighting
it’s kinda frightening

Say it’s lies no matter if it’s true
let out the bitterness you got inside of you
someone else to blame it's the easy thing to do
it's getting hard to think with all the gaslighting

take a ride out to the edge of belief
hang on tight denial runs deep
lay awake at night wondering how it came to be
it's getting hard to sleep with all the gaslighting

feels like everyone is out to get you
fight until the end you got so much to prove
back into the corner with nothing to lose
I find it hard to move yeah
all my life I'm putting on a show
dressed up but I got nowhere to go
all the little people walking down below
caught in the undertow
of all the gaslighting
yeah the gaslighting
I kinda like it
Track Name: Head
Yesterday she was a mortal
She came in crashing through a portal

I’d like to see what’s going on inside your fucking head
Like to see what’s going on inside your head

Inside your head

Yesterday she took me over
She bent me like a four-leaf clover

I’d like to see what’s going on inside your fucking head
Like to see what’s going on inside your head

Inside your head
