Track Name: Constants
The trees are bustling once again
The words are drifting friend to friend
Oh where will they go from here?
Where will they go?

We were children in the yard
With nothing written in our cards
But wings; they grow and spread like fire
Don't you see them grow?

There you are, you're right on time
Flesh and bone I can call mine
Cos tears and stories intertwine

You're my constant in the dark
Symmetries remain unstuck
Do you remember how we got here
All those years ago?

When the day goes black
And the moon's in my lungs
And the terrors, oh they start
That's when you play your part
So I'll count to five as I'll count on you

If you asked me where we would be today
Before we grew old and our hairs turned gray
I would take your hand and hold it tight
And we'll wait and see who smiles

And welcome home, you're right on time
Flesh and bone I can call mine
Cos tears and stories intertwine
Track Name: Oxygen Man II
Grow a wicked bone, son. Grow a wicked bone
A little less concern; I'll Leave it for my own
The world is getting brighter
The lungs getting lighter

So catch me if you can, hun. Catch me if you can
Those marathons inside your head have made a better man
I'll disappear like lightning
The smoke will be blinding
Good luck to you finding me now

I'll throw the curtains down
And have a look around from mountaintops
And dance on sweeter grounds
Since I could never leave no footprints with you

A gentle blow and there's fog on the glass
Write my name it's appearing at last
Icy fingers fresh from the frost
Reacquaint with the things I have lost

I'll shoot the padlocks down
And pitter-patter goes the glorious sound
They'll dance by your feet now
May they always leave those craters with you
Track Name: Acrobatic You
Holding hands on silver beaches
She's your mesmerizing creature
Keeping up the hopeful fiction
Firewood for your illusion

Cos she’s sitting in the other room.
Will she ever hear you?
Too long or too soon?
You twist and turn and fascinate but there's no ovation
For you, for you.
For you, acrobatic you.

Powdering your blistered fingers
Hold on to the creases of her
She's the wings that keep you flying
The light in your abysmal trying

But she's playing in the other room.
Will she ever hear you?
As you repeat your tunes?
You twist and turn and fascinate but there's no ovation
For you, for you.
For you, acrobatic you.

Acrobats and lion tamers
Hearts of steel and faith like towers
(One more encore)

Is she waiting in the other room?
Will she ever find you?
Is your moment coming soon?
You twist and turn and fascinate and is there salvation
For you, for you?
For you, for you?
Track Name: Rabbit v. Sharks
Run, oh run. It's just a little more
You know they won't catch you if you fall
The colours congeal and make momentum sway
But will you reach the end?
Or is it just another day?

Look over there, the carnivores pursuit
Dressed in crooked smiles and predatory suits
"Have a little swim, the water's nice and warm"
But don’t dip your toes, cos only horrors come

They say slow and steady wins the race
But we don't live forever anyway
It's not a little fantasy that I wildly chase
They're the dreams that they've buried all away

Why am I on the starting line?
Misplaced faith; a candidate assigned
Don't stand still. Don't let the footprints dry
This can't be the way I'm gonna die

They say slow and steady wins the race
But we don't live forever anyway
There is no more time left for all the little things
And the dreams that they've buried all away

You won't have my blood
You won't have this blood today
Even if just a while
My heart is gonna stay
Track Name: Sanctuary
When the day is bright (fall in my arms)
When the grown-ups fight (fall in my arms)
When the shadows bite (fall in my arms)
When the nightmares strike (fall in my arms)

When the skies ignite (fall in my arms)
When in the high tides (fall in my arms)
It will be alright (fall in my arms)
Just shut those eyes (fall in my arms)
It will be alright (fall in my arms)
Just shut those eyes…

It will be alright
Just shut those eyes
