Track Name: This Is A Show
THIS IS A SHOW

This is a show not
This is a show not to be missed
This is a show not
This is a show not to be missed

Meet at the intersect
Where the cranes puncture the sky
Buildings like skeletons,
Stripped to the insides
On the edge of this town
Our bodies, absorb the sounds
And we’ll release them later
And we’ll release them later

This is a show not to be missed

Lie against the concrete
In between the building
Look up at the sky
It seems like they’re collapsing
On the edge of this town
Our bodies, absorb the sounds
And we’ll release them later
And we’ll release them later

We’ll detonate
As this evening grows
The noises swell
And begin to flow
We’ll detonate
As this evening grows
The colours burst
And kaleidoscope
Track Name: Onwards and Upwards
ONWARDS & UPWARDS

Onwards and upwards and onwards and upwards and onwards and upwards…

VERSE
What will we do
What will we do
When our luck runs out on us?
When our luck runs out on us
What will we do, what will we do [x2]

What will we do
What will we do
When the clouds collapse on us?
When the clouds collapse on us
What will we do, what will we do [x2]

CHORUS
We’re plotting lines, across a map
We’ll navigate along the coast
Like the great explorers
Plotting lines, across a map
These vapour trails
From places that we’ve left behind
Evaporate
Evaporate ..

VERSE
What will we do
What will we do
When our luck runs out on us?
When our luck runs out on us
What will we do, what will we do [x2]

Cities and roads long swept away
On exclamation marks
On exclamation marks
Cities and roads long swept away [x2]

CHORUS

MIDDLE EIGHT
Windows down
And spirits up
Pollen surging through my blood
Streaming tears from swollen eyes
But we’re all smiles
But we’re all smiles
