Track Name: Catharsis
Not everyone heals in time
A particular failing of mine
Like failing to pick up on signs
And failing to follow my own good advice
A small hollow victory then
When I can't even turn to my friends
Without you still turning the knife because
Not everyone heals in time
At least I have some lessons to learn from it
Some bitter lessons, my skin is still burning from it
My back still bearing the knife that you turn because
You'd rather I was silent than speak my mind
But I know now that I could never heal fast enough
It's not my scars that we'd have needed to get past enough
I've realised I need to leave you behind because
Not everyone heals in time

Slow down
You are
Not alone
Slow down
You are
Now awake
Without feeling safe
It's like you were never afraid
Track Name: Inertia
A dead figure stands against a black background
He can't hear commands, he's immune to the sound
His face is a picture as he just scans everyone
His mind is a canvas as blank as the Sun
He fails

Am I disgraced
Disdained
Acclaimed
Ashamed
Or am I in pain?
No pain no gain no way

It bites strong
It hurts long
It weighs real
It sees me

The same figure stands, still alive somehow
No thoughts and no memories, only aware of the now
He'd wonder if he'll miss it but his emotions are gone
His mind is a canvas as blank as the Sun
He fails
Track Name: Trade
Heat
Heat and light
Dust and heat
Touch and sight
Teeth
Teeth that bite
Tooth and nail
Stand and fight
Dirt
Dirt and blood
Blood and oil
It's alright
Sleep
Peaceful sleep
They sleep sound
Every night

Cursed
We never learn
This is just a bad day on anyone's terms
Just another fuckup on a catastrophic scale
So let's save ourselves before we save the whale
Trade
Trade money for lives
We fight with guns you fight with sticks and knives
Pain
Without consequence
If it's not ours it's irrelevant

It's a long way home
A long long term
A damn long road
Will we ever learn
It's a christless shame
But don't go for your guns
Or fight back
Cause your only friend now is the Sun
It's a colourful place
This delicate land
Soon it will be
Lines of oil wells and sand
It's a christless shame
In these terrible times
For the rest of your days
You'll be walking on landmines
Track Name: Get Gone
Calm yourselves
Calm your minds
Calm your fears
Calm your headlines
We've armed our friends
Manned outposts
The only way in now is to come to our home

Get gone

These communicators don't work underground
These communicators don't work underground
These communicators don't work underground
These communicators don't work underground
Some good conversation could figure this out
We need to discover what others have found
We could turn to our brothers
We must turn to our brothers
These communicators don't work underground

Calm yourselves
Calm your minds
Calm your fears
Calm your headlines
We've armed our friends
Manned outposts
The only way in now is to come to our home

Get gone

These communicators don't work underground
Track Name: King Cain
Here we stand today
We are outnumbered but unweakened and unafraid
Here forever free
We can be fearless without meaning, without faith
Here we have a stake
But the World still has not heard our people speak
Here will be our fate
Won't be your servants any longer
It's your weakness that makes us strong
As you will see

We have nothing to give but our love

You're raping our sisters
Why are you doing this
You're killing our brothers
Why are you doing this
We bury each other
Why are you doing this
We stand heads uncovered
Why are you doing this
Our friends are no longer
Why are you doing this
Our pain makes you stronger
Why won't you die
King Cain
We're begging you father
We love one another

Here we stand today
Still outnumbered still unweakened still unafraid
Here forever free
You cannot teach us the mistakes that you have made
Here we have our place
But the World has yet to hear our people speak
Here will be our graves
Won't be your servants any longer
It's your weakness that makes us strong
As you will see

You're raping our sisters
Why are you doing this
You're killing our brothers
Why are you doing this
We bury each other
Why are you doing this
We stand heads uncovered
Why are you doing this
Our friends are no longer
Why are you doing this
Our pain makes you stronger
Why won't you die
King Cain
We're begging you father
We love one another

We have nothing to give but our love
But our love
