Track Name: Little Signs feat. Expendable Friend
There's a half moon high
There's people in the sea
it's a low tide
I shouldn't be smoking
I've got a heartbeat
I've got a new fear
Speaking with clarity
What do you want to hear?

How do you walk in someone elses shoes?

I'm an old man
I've messed up many times
I've been missing
All of the little signs

How do people fall in love with each other?
How do we all fall in love with each other?
Track Name: Night Fox
We're breaking into school after dark
Make no sound with your footsteps
I know where there's a gap in the trees
They put up higher fences

We roll before we go
And trace the tracks of animals
I learned the routes around
To not set off the light security

You don't know what I saw
What I said, the front door closed behind me
But I've got all I need
And my pocket watch
You could be walking downtown
You could be in a foreign land
No language, no alphabet
Don't worry
The world ain't ready for you yet

We roll before we go
And trace the tracks of animals
I learned the routes around
To not set off the light security
Track Name: Felt A Love
Okay, so I'm standing by the kerb on Grey's Inn Road
And I've been waiting 15 minutes
Cos you haven't showed
We'd arranged to meet by Starbucks
I feel kind of directionless as I realise there's about three of them
In a quarter-mile radius
So I've got two choices
I can either stay put
Watch all the people pass or slowly circle 'round
I don't know the odds of seeing a familiar face
In a city with this many people in a crowd

Now ours is a history characterised
By meetings and encounters that happened by chance
They punctuate a midnight sky
Little specks of light
Between the lifetimes that we spent apart
Just then I catch the sight of your eyes looking at mine
And you do this little thing, this tiny movement
Where you just tilt your head
And I'm the only person in the world
Living or dead
Track Name: Balance Lost
There is a balance that has been upset
We've suffered a loss that we need to address
You dwell in the gutter with your head in the sky
Never stop playing your nightmare lullabies
The callouses on the tips of your fingers
A symptom of playing
6 steel strings forever
The face of a friend will remain hidden
Behind a veil and you wish
You could see them one last time
And just say goodbye...

It's good to have known you
But I don't believe
We're gonna see you on the other side
So goodbye
And I hope I am wrong
I hope I am wrong
But you can't change facts with hope alone
So goodbye

And you can't be replaced
With somebody who cares
I can still hear your voice
But there's nobody there
The stage is empty
And I am a try-hard
Yes I am a try-hard
Not trying hard enough
Becoming a victim of noise abatement
We must move it downstairs
Into the basement
Our enemies faces
Will remain hidden
And they don't believe in direct action
No they don't believe in direct action

So goodbye
But I don't believe
We're gonna see you on the other side
So goodbye
And I hope I am wrong
I hope I am wrong
But you can't change facts with hope alone
I know cos I've tried
It's good to have known you
But I don't believe
We're gonna see you on the other side
So goodbye
And I hope I am wrong
I hope I am wrong
But you can't change facts with hope alone
So goodbye
