Track Name: Alicanto
trapped on the path of a train
that's long abandoned its name
the desert wastes no time
in bleeding everything dry

hills where hieroglyphics lay
they seem to point the way
a symbol starts to rise
a bird with shining eyes

lead us home
we've no need for silver or gold
lead us on
forever follow your song

high above the sun and the moon
we hear the guiding tune
now we're under your wing
will you take us to the brink?

lead us home
we've no need for silver or gold
lead us on
forever follow your song
Track Name: Blackbirds and Roses
built up with the hours, that are left to be filled
the ripples roll in but the water stays still

carried out with the failures, one at a time
you never lose 'cause you never try

blackbirds and roses and hearts gone to seed
trapped like an actor with no part to read

it falls to me, to catch your raindrops on my tongue
it falls to me, to take your daylight to the dusk
and it falls to me, i'll never know when it's enough
Track Name: Stranger Friends
pace, i think i need a change
i'm tired and i need somewhere that i can take a rest
'cause i wait, i try to play it straight
i say i'm in control but i am just another liar

and you don't even know what you want
you're so tired that you're singing along
to the voices hanging long in your head
they're not strangers but they're not really friends
they're not really friends

awake, i'm lying in a state
i'm tired but i can't sleep yet there's too much to regret
'cause i'm late, you're never gonna change
you're never gonna use this time there's too much to decide on

i, i tried to sleep straight through,
and i, i have no time to lose
Track Name: These Wings Don't Need to Fly
i could dream you, i'd believe it's you
but dreams aren't my domain
i could save you, be a slave to only you
but saviour's not my name

it's gonna be some time
before you let me out into your world
these wings don't need to fly
they just need the chance to come unfurled

you could want me, oh how you haunt me
this cloudy winter's day
you could reach me, and you could teach me it all
the reason for this rain

it's gonna be some time
before you let me out into your world
these wings don't need to fly
they just need the chance to come unfurled
