Track Name: The Pretence
I...I can see. I can see you there staring at me. Sit down, you've disgraced yourself. The blame is with no one else.

Be...Behind me stand figures of wealth eager to flee. You seem proud of yourself. Watch them drink to your health.

I know it hurts to muster a scream aloud, a voice, a shout – it's all you know.

Care...Carefully pick your way through words, diligently. Sit down, you've disgraced yourself. The blame is with no one else.

I know it hurts to muster a scream aloud, a voice, a shout – it's all you know.
Track Name: Stitched To The Bone
So thank God for your poise and your ability to exploit every single person around you when you see that they're at fault. Thank yourself for knowing exactly what not to do in every single situation you try to blag it through.

You had the world and pissed it all away. Inevitably you sink your teeth back in.

Take a long deep breath, count to ten before you choke. You're spluttering out words trying to fix what isn't broke. Take look into my eyes, you really think this is a joke? I'll take every word that you say and shove it back down your throat.

You had the world and pissed it all away. Inevitably you sink your teeth back in.

You want it all? Just take the skin off my back tonight.

You want a reaction - I'm not going to stay. I'm gaining distance, crawling away. You've got resentment stitched to your bones. You're not the big man when you trip and fall.

You want it all? Just take the skin tonight.
(You want it all? Just take the skin right off my back)
You had it all, inevitably you pissed it all away
Track Name: Wires & Code
The sky goes black over the towers. And all interacting people start lighting up like components, glowing. Down below you shine like a coin - spinning and moving in light.

If we can find a connection independent of wires and codes then we'll transcend this place, leave it behind. Bricks and mortar for sound and light. The noise forms banks between us, our everlasting gaze endures and we'll disconnect ourselves from this machine.
(Electric sparks and transistors all conduct the symphony.)

The time ticks down. We watch the hours and with grace you take tentative steps. You walk this path without really knowing. People stare then fade into the walls.

If we can find a connection independent of wires and code then we'll transcend this place, leave it behind. Bricks and mortar for sound and light. The noise forms banks between us, our everlasting gaze endures and we'll disconnect ourselves from this machine.
(Electric sparks and transistors all conduct the symphony.)

Electric components will transform.

Electric sparks and transistors all conduct symphonies. The movement back to harmony is complete now. Electric sparks and transistors all conduct symphony. A movement back to harmony, disconnect this now.
Track Name: The Mapmaker
Plot a course and check the compass.
Take the direct route home.
The path is rife with trepidation, yet we press on with hope.

Too late to change the mapmaker.
Guided by the rough sketch.
Co-ordinates stretch before us, lines etched in space and time.
