Slow Hearts 02:46
Like, as if we always knew Like, as if you’d told us plenty Like as if the bomb you had dropped Was hollowed out and empty A revelation in a bar Of the night you came to see us And all the Sleazies And the tears that flow around the cheaters FALSE STARTS 15 MILES APART STUNNED BIRDS COME BACK TO LIFE WITH SLOW HEARTS You've been holding on so long Bless the friend who talks you down What’s the odds of even phoning? But I bet you knew The tide won’t tolerate postponing You go stumbling away From the mouth of Mother’s Ruin All the salt hangs in the air to watch your every movement FALSE STARTS 15 MILES APART STUNNED BIRDS COME BACK TO LIFE WITH SLOW HEARTS

HERE COMES ANOTHER YEAR This started out like any other night The gentle glow that fast becomes A burning light A corner booth in black and white Tick tock we sync the clocks And I’m a stroke away from being hooked upon a thousand baited lines For what’s the umpteenth time Trade blows and episodes Of border life and boredom duly scratched in with a knife To let the next chump know you’re here You’ll never break another string Or see their faces as you sing Or watch your life benignly slip away - we fade to grey Here comes another year It cuts me to hold you I know that you're sincere I'm glad that I told you This is hard to hear I thought you'd pull through That boy who swallowed back the pill Because we had some time to fill This momentary rapture Followed by the fear of capture You’ll never break another string Or see their faces as you sing Or watch your life benignly slip away - we fade to grey Here comes another year It cuts me to hold you I know that you're sincere I'm glad that I told you This is hard to hear I thought you'd pull through

Fader Down 03:40
YOU MISS THE BROKEN TURN OF EVERY PHRASE THE QUANTUM SISTER WILL RETIRE I’VE BEEN THE BEST THAT I CAN EVER BE A BLACK EYED TRIPPER IN A WIRE AND THOUGH I WASN’T OUT TO HARM A SOUL I LET THE BEST OF THEM ALL GO THE DROP WAS NEVER MEANT TO KILL YOU THOUGH THE CONSTANT TRICKLE OF THE SLOW YOU’RE THE BIRD THAT PECKS THE TEETH I LAY SLEEPING UNDERNEATH WE GET TOGETHER IN A VAPOR TRAIL WITH ANY SECOND WE CAN STEAL ALL THE WOW AND FLUTTER IN THE WORLD COULDN’T IMITATE THE FEEL ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SKIP A TURN A SINGLE SINGER IN THE ROUND I HEAR YOU DISAPPEARING EVERYDAY AS WE PUSH THE FADER DOWN YOU’RE THE BIRD THAT PECKS THE TEETH I LAY SLEEPING UNDERNEATH

No more talking No more counselling All the white noise Slowly loudening You will make The move you want to make But keep a souvenir From here There’s a version Of you on the hills And maybe one day I’ll get off these pills We’ve both been Dragged up and broken down So it could never be…..weird Will you do it Clear your history? All the tracers Trailing awkwardly If you light it I’ll forever feel the burn As you disappear
