Track Name: Ellipsis
The sunlight leads on
A dark flower reaches for space
Signposted, graffitied
The world will be a lesser place
Without it, oh yeah

And how do you think it knows?
And how do you think it knows?

They trick us into thinking
There's no way
There's always a way (x2)

The moonlight leads on
A dark flowers reaches for grace
Signposted, graffitied
The world will be a lesser place
Without it, oh yeah

And how do you think it knows?
And how do you think it knows?

They trick us into thinking
There's no way
There's always a way (x2)

Reaches for space
Reaching for grace
The moonlight leads on
Reaches for space
Reaching for grace
The sunlight leads on
Track Name: Disappoint Me
All phones are off the hook
All heads are buried in the night
All taking the stands and walking the planks for free
Trying to remember how to believe

It's never
The story they want, and it's a shame
To have to disappoint you
Blind faith
Is not the same as complacency
And you disappoint me

A streak across the sky
And across your face
Red white red white red... white fingers
Clinging on swinging on to a conker on a string
What a useless thing

It's never
The story they want, and it's a shame
To have to disappoint you
Blind faith
Is not the same as complacency
And you disappoint me

You act, you act
Like this happens all the time
Well not to me it don't, no not to me it don't
Go back, go back:
A kiss - was that what you wanted?
Well not from me you don't
No not from me you don't

It's never
The story they want, and it's a shame
To have to disappoint you
Blind faith
Is not the same as complacency
And you disappoint me

You disappoint me
You disappoint me
You disappoint me
You disappoint me
Track Name: Updraft
We saw her fly up in the hills that day
And dive away
Magnified, we marveled at birds of prey
For all that day

Please hold the mountains there for me
Please hold a steady gaze for me

I'm not used to being the one who goes
The one who leaves
I traded melting snow for beaches and harbour scenes
Harbour scenes

Ooh I'll hold the sunshine here for you
Ooh I'll hold a steady gaze for you

Traveling through the air
Your girl with a jetlagged stare
Her internal siren wails and shoots a flare
"It's a trap it's a trap it's a trap
Get out while you can"
But that's a lie
And I know that inside
And one of these days the rest of it will glide
Like the beautiful beautiful birds in the updraft
The beautiful birds
Like the beautiful beautiful birds in the updraft

You were there the whole time
I saw it through your eyes
I felt your hand squeeze mine
Until I couldn't tell
Where I stopped and you began
Where I stopped and you began

Ooh I'll hold a steady gaze for you
Ooh I'll hold a steady gaze for you

Traveling through the air
Your girl with a jetlagged stare
Her internal siren wails and shoots a flare
"It's a trap it's a trap it's a trap
Get out while you can"
But that's a lie
And I know that inside
And one of these days the rest of it will glide
Like the beautiful beautiful birds in the updraft

You were there the whole time
Til I couldn't tell where I stopped and you began
Track Name: Averting Tragedies
We are invisible
But what can the invisible see?
Let's float to the surface
Come gasp for breath with me

We could do it, here now
We went through it, somehow
It's important to say
These things aloud

I can't save him
Any more than I should expect you to save me
Yet here we are releasing doves
And averting tragedies
Please honey, trust yourself

I am panicking but
It's just a Freudian projection of
A fortnight's worth of mess
I don't actually need the protection, no

We could do it, here now
We went through it, somehow
It's important to say
These things aloud

I can't save him
Any more than I should expect you to save me
Yet here we are releasing doves
And averting tragedies
Please honey, trust yourself.
Track Name: Modern Wizardry
What would bring us both to cease?
How was I to know?
A part of us was ignorant
How were you to know

Far inside your blurred domain
A lapse of memory
Perhaps you would have dragged me home
If it weren't for modern wizardry

Under the spell of modern wizardry
Under the spell

Because nobody wants to be
The monsters we become
The tiny monsters we become
Within you and within me

Far inside your blurred domain
A lapse of memory
Perhaps I would have dragged you home
If it weren't for modern wizardry

Under the spell of modern wizardry
Under the spell

A lapse of memory
This so-called wizardry
Modern technology
Intense psychiatry
Monsters inside of you
Monsters inside of me

You are still...
Track Name: Lake Cargelligo
Can't you see they want your head on a plate?
Well here's a secret: you don't have to run to escape
They'll brand it "searching", they'll call it "fleeing from the truth"
But you know better, you don't need an eye for an eye
Or a tooth for a tooth

And these are the things I realise now
We triumph where machines fail

As human, it's you man
You will fall along the way
As human, it's you man
That is what will make you great
Oooh-oh Oooh-oh Ooo-oooh

Because it's family you don't wanna let it go
But they've got fingers in all their listening holes
Leave that box there it's coming apart at the seams
Inside they're pushing buttons pulling levers
Watching pulsing blips move across a tiny screen

And these are the things I realise now
We triumph where machines fail

As human, it's you man
You will fall along the way
As human, it's you man
That is what will make you great
Oooh-oh Oooh-oh Ooo-oooh

You are not a machine.
