Tyro Poor wounded woman how could she resist? Consumed by a hunger that clung to her lips Pulled by a line that was drawn in the sand She gave into something she could not have planned Tyro, Tyro, Tyro The sequence was already known, the demon was dead that lived inside her head Persistent the distance the danger the thrill A flicker ignited a battle of will She made for the shoreline and breathed in resigned As she parted her mouth so the poison entwined Tyro, Tyro, Tyro The sequence was already known, the demon was dead that lived inside her head Who was the mountain, who was the wave? Twisted and reckless, did not wish to be saved Fighting for solace consumed by the force, Ran deep wide and open let the river take course. The heat kept on rising, the cool water soothed, Resistance was futile there was nothing she could do And then from the summit, release from within, Unveiled the stranger shook watery skin Tyro, Tyro, Tyro The sequence was already known, the demon was dead that lived inside her head

Castaway Sail away with me; pack up your things and leave Some day we may return Some day we may return Lift up your tail if you’re feeling small Kick up your heels if you’re feeling small With money in our pocket and sweetness in equal parts You can be the wise one and I can play your cheap guitar Some say they won't get far Take one chance his might be ours Lift up your tail if you’re feeling small Kick up your heels if you’re feeling small By the light of the moon and the stars I see questions on your face Cast them off it won’t be very hard sometimes you just out grow one place Let go we will unfurl Set your sail we'll light up this world We'll light up this world We'll light up this world Lift up, lift up, lift up This world.

Beating Heart Oh my luck’s come undone Oh my luck’s come undone High a sweet burning flame Right at the end of the game There was something in the air that night Something as cold as steel, there were eyes on the table, looking up at me. There was something in the air that night, something incomplete, there was room on the top but nothing underneath You were such a zealous man I couldn’t help but love your fire and fight You would spark a mile wide smile and there was light, light Now brother I’ve a candle it helps I’ve found And I remember the day you got shot down. Beating heart we will meet again

The Plan still no word as we flew in, worrying just like they were our own kin and the landscape changes. the certain taste of things to come and suddenly it just hits home the sun’s beating. believe me when I say it never goes away not so hazy yesterdays, seeping through the tracks, how come I remember that and not my wife’s name. hide and seek lad, hide and seek lad, hide and seek. The centenary will the young still come to hear how we lost and how we won, well a good story will capture imaginations. hide and seek lad, hide and seek lad, hide and seek. now we are free and you’re here with me watching that old movie on my T.V and I’m holding my breath again. Holding my breath again

Don’t wait too long See the light, golden paradise, Day is dawning, dawning Hear the sound, underground Teeth are talking, talking Don’t wait too long for me Taste the fire, cover desire Body aching, aching Breathe the mist Defences, fading, fading Don’t wait too long for me Bantam bodies blue and black Memories hold onto that Bantam bodies black and blue These are the things that make you who you are. Touch the sky, don’t fight.

We knew you well On this silent night it spoke to me I knew very well you were a part of me I took it as red that this wasn't the end of us now. I was fooled by the miles under this wishing tree I sent you a spell you sent it back to me I knew it was wrong to wish for something better left I need you to know. We all walk on but still belong and know We knew you well Holding a hand, a fear, a destiny Now, I'm not afraid of that. I know there are shadows but they've all shaking hands with what's new They say hello. We all walk on but still belong and know We knew you well. Not a gesture, a thought or a sin, or a teardrop Will be lost on these grains of time. We all carry you along And pass you on, we knew you well. We all walk on but still belong and know We knew you well.

The Rising So unsure, not quite here Silence sleeps on this tongue Bold like butterflies Inside Be still now Beautiful, this world Set the sun on this cloud Golden glance. Evanescent Fearless Setting free I heard it sing I heard it sing Like a new born thing It was beautiful, Beautiful Beautiful

Save You If you want to run, run it’s a way to get things done even if you’re weakening you will find something, you will something within if you want to jump, jump it’s a kind of medicine even if the wall is thick you can get over it, you will get over it it will save you it will save you time if you want to shout, shout it’s so good to get things out even if the air is thin it can wash away your sin let the good stuff back in

Who Am I? If you ask me, what do I need? I can’t tell you. Could it be on this wind, or in this tree That cuts through branches. Hark, there’s life, In your sights Darkness to day Here am I, changed. Can’t tell the route to take. Some dare to liberate. Who am I? Send for me Care Own Need Share Cut In Ease New Core Emotionally
