Track Name: Red Velveteen
Your skin like café mocha
Your eyes like hazel sea
You walk like a twisted lover
Mother warned ‘bout a girl like thee

Veins loaded, crimson clover
Soul floating in ecstasy

Stumble in, your steps in disorder
Body moves like a serpentine
Witchy smile I can never uncover
Warm touch in red velveteen

Veins loaded, crimson clover
Soul floating in ecstasy

Your skin like café mocha
Your eyes like hazel sea
Witchy smile I can never uncover
Warm touch in red velveteen
Track Name: Lament for Myself
Every second every minute
Every lover every cynic
Has got a story to tell

Every line that you’ve written
Every song that you’ve listened
Has never fit me this well

If you see through
You’ll never be the same again
If you come here
You’ll never leave again

If you see through
You’ll never be the same again
If you come here
You’ll never leave again

Say what you need to say
Don’t say what I need to hear
Say what you need to say
Don’t say what I need to hear

I know it looks the same
I know it feels the same
This is a lament for myself
For just myself

I miss you
My lovely friend
Chains of misery
Bind us till the end

Didn’t leave a note
Just said goodbye
Didn’t mean
To find you again
Track Name: Stand Up (and Face the Music)
Stand up
Look ahead
Day’s over
Go to bed

No money
Back beat
Run around
Summer heat

Super ego
The id
Fight out
Let it bleed

By the rules
Abide
Face the Music
Don’t hide

Blend in
It’s white
Fade out
Too bright

Stay grounded
Hands deep
Trip over
Back on feet

Live easy
Die hard
Run slow
Another yard

Mistakes
Make and learn
Funeral pyre
Watch it burn
Track Name: Worn Out Clothes
My thoughts won’t let me sleep tonight
You are always on my mind
I can’t figure out
How to set this right
When you’re not by my side

I can see my problems
Do you see your problems
Do we ever see our problems together
Or won’t we ever be
Able to see

I know we wear each other out
But we won’t ever find out
If we could walk long roads
And be soft like worn out clothes

When you think it won’t work
You will make it not work
We could be wrong
When think we are right
See no reason to try

I know we wear each other out
But we won’t ever find out
If we could walk long roads
And be soft like worn out clothes

I know we wear each other out
But we won’t ever find out
If we could walk long roads
And be soft like worn out clothes
Track Name: Throw Away
Throw me away
When you're done
Favour indeed
For a favour returned

I'll scratch your back
If you scratch mine
Let's get on
With our glasses of wine

I'm a clumsy fool
In a wise man's world
Tied down by rules
That no one cares about

Throw me away
When you're done
Favour indeed
For a favour returned

You're lonely
That's my fault
My wound is fresh
I need some salt

Sleep it over
With your lover
No one's got
The time to linger on

Throw me away
When you're done
Favour indeed
For a favour returned

I'm a clumsy fool
In a wise man's world
Tied down by rules
That no one cares about
