about

It's been a long year. We've traveled under cover of night, making noise wherever we could. Meanwhile we've cut corners and fixed things in our creaky shacks with string and sealing wax. We think it's time to build something that will last a little longer...

It's time to leave this year and begin again with new plans. It's time to leave this home, build our boat and sail to somewhere new.

It's time to leave...

Track Name: The Place That Won't Take Me Back
So the lines are all brand new
And faces traced like ones I knew
See me walk by

So we talk of hillside views I'm missing
And each time you're lying, I'll listen
At least I'll try

Cause when I walk it's taking me back
And when I watch I'm on fire
From the church to the railway track

But talk is tracing cracks
Cause when I watch I'm on fire
But I'd watch it on fire
The place that won't take me back

So the lines are all brand new
But places never change their view
Just trick your eyes

Cause when I walk it's taking me back
And when I watch I'm on fire
From the church to the railway track

But talk is tracing cracks
Cause when I watch I'm on fire
But I'd watch it on fire
The place that won't take me back

It's by my side
It's by my side
Track Name: Boats (Swept Away)
Make a wish on whispered stars
For a road and faster car.
And wait, see if it comes true

For a house on distant streets
Dream of nights in softer sheets
This beach, will wait

So I know you're tired,
So leave it to the tide,
And at next light,
When weather's right,
Come sailing home

Let the dark subside,
Just leave it to one side,
I'm on your side,
When weather's right,
Come sailing home again

Walk the land and see the shore
Think of less and want for more
And wait, to keep the grey from blue

In a house on distant streets
Someone dreams a distant beach
And waits, they wait

So I know you're tired,
So leave it to the tide,
And at next light,
When weather's right,
Come sailing home

Let the dark subside,
Just leave it to one side,
I'm on your side,
When weather's right,

You'll see it swept away
You'll see it swept away
Track Name: Lifelines
I know that this might calm down,
And I know I could sink and not drown
But treading all night's getting old
And sunrise these days leaves me cold
I know, I can't turn this around

Cause when I cut your lifeline
I started falling - so far
I couldn't look back

When I cut your lifeline
You were calling - so hard
I couldn't shout back

So no more of the long walks through town
And no more talks of who let who down
Though now I've said all my goodbyes,
My mind is filled with kind replies
I know, I know.

Cause when I cut your lifeline
I started falling - so far
I couldn't look back

When I cut your lifeline
You were calling - so hard
I couldn't shout back

Let it all settle down, let it all settle down

And yet I think I'll miss you if I fall...
Track Name: Everybody Sleeps
You lie to my left hand side
I look right
But I see you.

Three hours into half my night
Your time flies
But I sit through

--get up, don't get up, get up don't get up--
--shut up, just shut up, shut up, just shut up--
--don't wake up, don't wake up, don't wake up--
--get up, don't get up, get up don't get up--

You've a quiet and restful night
I'm just quiet
Cause I'm not you

Three hours into half my life
Your time flies
But I've no view

It's not the latest start
It's not a touching heart
It's just a warning in the morning, I've watched everybody sleep

It's not the latest sign
I sigh
It's just a warning in the morning I've watched everybody sleep

You've a quiet and restful night,
I'm just quiet,
Cause I'm not you

It's not the latest start
It's not a touching heart
It's just a warning in the morning, I've watched everybody sleep

It's not the latest sign
I sigh
It's just a warning in the morning I've watched everybody sleep
Track Name: Alone
It's not so bad alone
My fridge makes a noise that lets me know I'm home
The milk in my bones
Says this isn't the darkest night I've known

I know that this isn't the darkest night I'll know

I'd walk some miles to sleep
But there's nowhere to run and no lights on my street
And my shoe with the stone
Says this isn't the darkest night I've known

I know that this isn't the darkest night I'll know
I know that this isn't the darkest night I'll know
