Track Name: No Fixed Address
Waltzing beneath the trees’
Vast fractured canopies.
Are you golden?
Are you still warm?

Soaked in each ray of light.
Your sun dance staves off the night
Flee the old town.
Leave the swarm.


You say
“We could live here.
In the spaces between these roots.
Coexist here.
Hardened soles instead of soft boots.”

Flee the old town.
Leave the swarm.
Are you golden?
Are you still warm?


I’ve never seen so many shades of green.
Bleed into amber and orange in front of me.
I’ve never held the earth in my hands and felt so clean.
I’ve never seen you so serene.


Trade claustrophobia for clarity.
Forget the morning’s vanity.
Your skin is golden.
Your laugh is warm.

Comfort in the undergrowth.
Space enough for us both.
This is home now.
Forever more.


I say
“We could live here.
Find a sturdy tree and we’ll climb it.
Coexist here.
Hollow out a hill, crawl inside it.”


This is home now.
Forever more.
Your skin is golden.
Your laugh is warm.


I’ve never seen so many shades of green.
Bleed into amber and orange in front of me.
I’ve never held the earth in my hands and felt so clean.
I’ve never seen you so serene.


I’ve never seen so many shades of green.
Bleed into amber and orange in front of me.
I’ve never held the earth in my hands and felt so clean.
I’ve never seen you so serene.
Track Name: One For Sorrow
A tiny detail.
The faintest sign.
A shallow fracture.
I’ll take what’s mine.


I lay claim to this throne and everything below.
Up here on my plinth.
Its shine is just a glint.
It plucks at my attention.
An apple for my eye.
I’ve got the means and motive.
A simple Magpie.


A weakened structure.
A gentle sigh.
An open door for those like me who seek to find.


I lay claim to this throne and everything below.
Up here on my plinth.
Its shine is just a glint.
It plucks at my attention.
An apple for my eye.
I’ve got the means and motive.
A simple Magpie.




One for sorrow.
Two for joy.
Three for a girl.
Four for a sad excuse of a man.
I will pay for my sins.
Please clip my wings.
I’m not a magpie.
I’m just a thief….


I’ve seen you shine.


Usurped from my throne to the ground below.
Paying for each theft.
With a hole straight through my chest.
They say to kill a mocking bird is a mortal sin.
What’s the rule on Magpies? Where do lines begin?
I'm not a Magpie.
I’m just a thief.
Track Name: Little Spoon
Hollow out the darkness little spoon.
Place yourself into the chasm it once knew.
A perfect fit I can’t resist. I breathe you in.
The concave contact.
Skin on skin.


Cheeks have risen. She cracks a smile.
I’ll stay awake just a little while longer.
Chest is flooded. My arm’s pulled close.
Content little mumbles and freezing toes.


Your hair still smells like citrus little spoon.
Heavy are my eyelids I’ll join you soon.
A hushed five minutes I don’t want to miss.
Your shoulder beckons today’s last kiss.


Cheeks have risen. She cracks a smile.
I’ll stay awake just a little while longer.
Chest is flooded. My arm’s pulled close.
Content little mumbles and freezing toes.


Waking up she turns with a smile.
We’ll stay in bed just a little while longer.
Chest is flooded. Pull her close.
Content little spoon with your toasty toes.
Track Name: Safe Hands
Safe hands keep you strong.
Cold hands make you weary.
Withered hands know right from wrong.
Scarred hands tell all the best stories.

Old eyes bare more soul.
Young eyes see beauty and wonder.
Sharp eyes can see for miles.
Blind eyes can still dream in colours.

Perspective’s about where you stand.
Grass can always grow greener.
Observing the lay of the land.
Won’t make your choices easier.

Each of us carries a burden.
A burden shared is halved.
Solitude is peaceful.
Silence weakens hearts.

Each of us carries a burden.
A burden shared is halved.
Solitude is peaceful.
Silence weakens hearts.

Solitude is peaceful.
Silence weakens hearts.
