Track Name: Dishonour Among Theives (live)
Cold where your footsteps fall
I am your echo and your shadow
Here: left, right.
Red cross, dead loass, second sight.
Oh, I am waiting.
Oh, I am listening.
For slips of the tongue
loose lips, sunk ships, power trips and
oversights, oversights oversights.

You're pale as a fish. As a shark
your face buys silence, distance
calculate what violence, violence
will buy you.

Bam. Another ace in your hand
Bam. Another race to rail against
Bam. Fear is a trading game.
But which one of use
doesnt need their name?

Cos we are the men who wont be blamed
we are the ranks whose game is is
knives in the back, shots in the dark
slight of the hand, cheap tricks, suck dick
dont run, dont walk, dont stand single file
green light, red square, no blood on your hands.
Blood on your hands.
You look so horrified.

Your slights of tongue, done: legal tender, surrender
your will to power, cower, kill, remember
Your god forbid you'll be forgotten,
short stick, free kicks, dead and rotten.

Cos we are the men who wont be blamed
we are the ranks whose game is is
knives in the back, shots in the dark
slight of the hand, cheap tricks, suck dick
dont run, dont walk, dont stand single file
green light, red square, no blood on your hands.
Blood on your hands.
You look so horrified.
Track Name: Don't Look Down (live)
Im gonna save your life
Cos noone can do this alone
and of all the two edged things were forced to hold
this one wont make any sense unless you look at it wrong


So Im gonna save your life
while the darkness drags hard at your heels
and if youre going to take this tiny heavy step now
dont you dare look down and
let the abyss grab ahold
Cos Im gonna save your life


All silence is heavy until someone speaks
until someone attempts to name gravitys hold
and your hands, they look tired
and your palms cut and worn
from the struggle to crawl up
to stand up
to fight for a single foothold
So Im gonna save your life


Im gonna take your hand
and it shakes like a leaf, just like mine does, just like theirs do
Ill ask you to shut your eyes
to feel the touch of my skin on your own
feel the warmth push through it
I want you to hold it, feel it, breathe it
see it, know it, be it, see it, beleive it
Cos it will save your life
Track Name: The Wall (live, acoustic version)
There was a way out. There was a way down
That would have broken the fall.
But it's easy to doubt that anyone else
would know what would make sense of it all.

And all the king's horses and all the king's men
and no one can put us together. Together again.

Concrete and steel; an appeal to history
for a view to a
kill.

Metal eyes without minds
will perpetuate fear they don't feel

And all the king's horses and all the king's men
and who's going to put us together? again.

When it's "you" and not "we"
when it's "they" and not "us":
don't look down.
Sharp swords, and pitchforks
on the commons grand.
You can silence and (?); you can pretend
that you learned what it is to need
Oh and there was a way out.
There was a way down
but some things crack and don't bleed.
And all the king's horses and all the king's men
and no one will put you together, together again.
Track Name: Shelter (live)
She came down from the sky where the storm left her broken
and opened, and bleeding for me
and when god sends you gifts you must use them with pleasure
and treasure what lands in your reach.

---

When she woke under covers too cold to be hers
she had eyes like two torches of fire
and her nails and her teeth would have helped in her struggle
if her wounds hadnt rendered her mine

"You're no captive" I told her, and showed her the door
which swung open as leaves blew in through
cos when people believe it's their own path they've chosen
they won't see their cage for the view

Chorus:
Oh but you know women these days
are as fickle as they are immeasurable
And a man is a man when his fate's in his hands
and his grasp is as hard as it is invisible.

---

So why do you ask if its greener outside
when I've showed you the flowers through your window?
and where is your thanks for the prommise i made
to protect you from all that is cold a hard world?

And she smiled, I beleive, as I combed out her hair,
and I prayed that her thoughts would turn grateful
then I wrang out her blood, so she'd know that she'd bled
and be dead, if not thankful for rescue


Chorus:
Oh but you know women these days
are as fickle as they are immeasurable
And a man is a man when his fate's in his hands
and his grasp is as hard as it is invisible.

bridge:
I've told you, we'll go, and tomorrow will come
with tomorrows tomorrow in tow
let it go, little girl
there's a hole in the world that'll tear you apart if you go
They'll you apart if you go.
It'll you apart if you go.
You'll tear me apart if you go.
