Track Name: Seas Of Strange
Days pass away,
and unto smile from
Caught in your own tides,
I know, I know

Days pass away
and you fly from yourself
Moving out of range
Sending me to new seas of strange

Dazed and you're amazed
and seas more a stones throw away cos you're
Caught in your own tides,
I know, I know

Days pass away
and you fly from yourself
Moving out of range
Sending me to new seas of strange

Don't ever doubt her
She keeps you alive
and when love's around her
She keeps me alive

Days pass away
and you fly from yourself
Moving out of range
Sending me to new seas of strange
Track Name: The Ballad (Won't Miss You)
Here I come, won't take long
I'll say it straight, I won't miss you
Well I can't turn back time
What's done is done, I won't miss you

Hey I've a habit of running away,
It's much better off this way I know
I'd only make you sad
It's much better off this way

Hey you it's all my fault
I should have said I don't want you
Feel bad enough, guilt turns me off
I'm glad we stopped, I won't miss you

Hey I've a habit of running away,
It's much better off this way I know
I'd only make you sad
It's much better off this way

I get pushed into everything
I don't know what I want

Hey you forget about me
You've your own life to see, you won't miss me
Well it was real nice knowing you
Just wanted to lose, I won't miss you

Hey it's better off this way
I don't know what I'd say if you
Should look me in the face
It's much better off this way
Track Name: Forever Under
I'll bring you down like a water slide
If you want me around
Colours of memories I cannot keep
You won't ever die if you don't ever live

Forever under
Cold embrace
I won't even mind your void inside
Together with time
I won't even mind who you are

I'll see you down in the ground my friend
Let me take you forever under
Burnt out like junkies above a flame
You won't ever cry, you won't ever smile

Forever under
Cold embrace
I won't even mind your void inside
Together with time
I won't even mind who you are

I'll lose you down in the ground my friend
If you want me around
Loose thoughts have twisted your final aim
You won't ever die, you have got a friend

Forever under
Cold embrace
I won't even mind your void inside
Together with time
I won't even mind who you are
Track Name: The Last Show
Play rhythms of the last show
Down my friend, down you go
In your life cascading to such a fear
Down my friends, down
Your eyes are full again, like the moon

Time to stay home and hide your face
It's time to leave the human race
Believe the times but not your fears
You moan and curse the years
In you I've seen such a fear

Your eyes are black again, like the sky

Play rhythms of the last show
Easy come and easy go
Pack your bags and leave your face
Soon to stop and fall from grace
Your eyes are a lonely place, like the moon
