Track Name: For A Moment
We left all the waves and the wind behind
found us a place that they couldn't find
to lie and be quiet again for a moment

Free from the ceaseless machines below
long out of reach of the screaming phone
trying and trying again for a moment

Rain don't collide with this place
pain go reside anywhere but here in our brains
don't deny us this moment
moments away

far from the lights and the siren's howl
miles from the eyes of compliance now
and finally silent again for a moment

away from the roads,
the roars and the rumbles,
shakes and the shoves
now everyone give us a break
just once
for this tiniest moment
moments away
Track Name: Application To The Real World
At least i can say that i tried
showed up and stood there in line
filled out the forms they required
crossed the T's and dot the I's
Matched up the shirts with the ties
polished up in this disguise
said all i could to get hired
but something didn't feel right

Questioning came from all sides
they tested and pestered and pried
i just kept right on replying
and never looked terrified
applied all the words that they like
smiled at all the right times
endlessly ever denying
that something didn't feel right

So at least i can say that i tried
to get my submission inside
and let them all into my mind and
assimilate with real life
but i never got over the line
an ember was there all the time
a gentle incessant reminding
that something didn't feel right
Track Name: The Answer
We tested, inspected and trialed and analysed
no one wanted to hear
and questioned the best you could say at the time
no one wanted to hear
the evidence collected suggesting it's otherwise
but no one wanted to hear it
they just said that it cant be right
it cant be right

The facts from the fiction were finally recognized
no one wanted to hear
and cracks in the system exposed to the light
no one wanted to hear
an answer so simple it's right in front of them
but no one wanted to hear it
they just said that it cant be right
it cant be right

no one change a thing
cause it's alright
don't stop any machines
yeah it's alright
move on nothing to see here

go right back to sleep
cause it's alright
no excitement please
yeah it's alright
we've got all that you need yeah
just keep living the dream
Track Name: Look Up
Look up, look up, it's all been going on above your head. Look up.
Look up, look up, in ultra-violet and the infra-red. Look up.

Over the lives that keep you occupied.
over the roofs that keep you safe.
over the clouds that seem to always be around
whatever's going down...

Look up, look up, the lights that fly in all the wrong directions, look up.
Look up, look up, the aluminium in all the air. look up.
Track Name: Haven't We Evolved
I thought we'd been over this
now we're back down that road again
didn't we come to some realisation
way back then?
So how in the hell are we still fucking round like this
haven't we learned anything?
something's failing us.
Cant we just...


Are you seriously
telling me nobody's figured out
how to show empathy
Even the animals know that it's better to work as a team.
So why in the world are you wasting your energy
getting aggressive with me?
Wasn't the lesson here
perfectly clear?


We build it all up
and we burn it all down again
and struggle to understand
how it all makes any sense.
So why all the trouble man?
What's all the fuss about?
Cant y'all work it out
and once and for all
