about

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

T.S. Eliot - "Little Gidding" (the last of his Four Quartets)

Track Name: Skin
Shedding my skin
For the first time
I feel ready to begin
Unravelling
I paint it all black
Ought to know by now that the hardest attack
Is the one from within

But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to feel it
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside

Give up all hope
It's always been
The tightest rope
That reels you in
You set yourself up
Nothing's right
And nothing's ever enough
So you keep digging

But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to feel it
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside

Get it all out
You can dance
And you can sing and shout
But don't stop giving
It's so easy to crawl
Under the bottomless sea
While the world goes on living

But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to breathe in
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside
Track Name: Homeground
You called me me up tonight to tell me that you're miles away
Well I'm glad you made it OK
Well me, I'm doing fine, I'm holding the fort, wading deep in thought
And I bought all this useless stuff I don't need to try and entertain myself
But it's just not working
I checked on my email and it's all cheap flights and viagra sales

And I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's
Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground

Half a bottle of wine and two movies later and I'm still trying
To escape from this feeling
Of incompleteness cause you're not here and I must confess
I don't know why I run so fast from sadness and headlong into joy
When there's really no difference at all
They're two sides of the same worn out coin

And I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's
Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground

I took a run around the park til it got dark and I got to thinking how
Integrity and poverty
Always seem to go hand in hand for me, and I know
It's not the way it has to be and I'm so grateful to life
For constantly showing me my hypocrisy
All the people I blame, well they're just the same as me
And it makes me smile to see

And I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's
Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground

I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's
Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground

I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's
Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground
Track Name: Perfect Love
This time it's true
I wanna be with you
I know what I'll do
I'm gonna stay with you

It's not a perfect love no far from it
But it's what I got and I'll run with it
It's not a perfect love no far from it
But it's what I got and I'll work with it

Because
This time it's true
I wanna be with you
I know what I'll do
I'm gonna stay with you

It's not a perfect love no far from it
But it's what I got and I'll run with it
It's not a perfect love no far from it
But it's what I got and I'll work with it

Oh no
Don't you ever turn your back on me
Well I'll let you down
And I'll set you free
No don't you ever hang up on me
It's not a perfect love but it's meant to be

Because
This time it's true
I wanna be with you
I know what I'll do
I'm gonna stay with you

You tell me that it's all there waiting for me out there
You help me to be all there
Really to be
The best of me

This time it's true
I wanna be with you
I know what I'll do
I'm gonna stay with you

It's not a perfect love no far from it
But it's what I got and I'll run with it
It's not a perfect love no far from it
But it's what I got and I'll work with it

Oh no
Don't you ever turn your back on me
Well I'll let you down
And I'll set you free
No don't you ever hang up on me
It's not a perfect love but it's meant to be
Track Name: Save Me
I walked in to that old trap
Took off my shoes and I lay down to sleep
And when I woke I was under attack
I never knew hurt could run so deep

Who's gonna save me from myself?
I don't know who that is
Who's gonna save me from myself?
Think I'm alone on this

Hook me on up to your happy machine
Pump sweet distraction in to my veins
And don't let me look back at what I might have been
I don't wanna learn I just want things to change

Who's gonna save me from myself?
I don't even know who that is
Who's gonna save me from myself?
Think I'm alone on this

The moon came up and the crickets cried
And the stars tell me this, now, could be enough
But soon those clever little demons begin to bite
And I can hear his voice saying
Don't give up, never give up

Cause who's gonna save you from yourself?
You don't know what that is
Who's gonna save you from yourself
You're not alone on this
Oh you're not alone on this
You're not alone on this
