Track Name: Bad Decisions
We'll make only bad decisions after all we're only young
and our heads are full of silhouettes of songs we haven't sung.

It was white noise, like a sunset. Our ears hungry as sinks
and you were washing out the thoughts you were too coward to think

the head, the heart inside a bowl
the goldfish sings alone
in semaphore

and he made only food for one because everyone he loved was dead
and there was knowing in his smile and in his tea and in his head

but when nobody came over he still brewed his tea for two
because it's easy if there's too much

the head, the heart inside a bowl
the goldfish sings alone
in semaphore

And we'll make only bad decisions even as we both grow old
and the flat was full of broken things that didn't dare get sold

and we'll make only bad decisions but my favourite one was you
you were my favourite misbehaviour you were my favourite thing to do.

the head, the heart inside a bowl
the goldfish sings alone
in semaphore
Track Name: Crouching Forests
In those crouching forests at the feet of kneeling trees.
In the hearts of the mindless birds.

No one’s blamed for winter. No one hopes for summer breeze.
No one watches as the brown leaves turn to mould.

Widen out your throat.
Tighten up your winter coat.

Fill the barrels of your gun

with dark foreboding holes
left in the Sun

In your reaching fingers something slips and you’re in flight
 into the mouths of the greedy magpies.

The Devil’s blood on diamonds. The devil’s blood is in your arms.
No one ever means to harm but harm tends to come.

Widen out your throat

Tighten up your winter coat.
Fill the barrels of your gun

with dark foreboding holes

left in the Sun.

Track Name: Born to Die with The Blues
Kiss me and tell me you love me
and I know what you're saying is true.
Everything I ever fell for was you
but I was born to die with the blues

We're both on the core of the world, babe
if we both look far enough down.
I'm hammering gold foil between us
and I'm hoping I'll find you in time.

Kiss me and tell me you love me
and I know what you're saying is true.
Everything I ever fell for was you
but I was born to die with the blues

We're just crawling closer to death, babe
and my friends are all deep in the ground
I'm hammering gold foil between us
and I'm walking the meridian line.

Kiss me and tell me you love me
and I know what you're saying is true.
Everything I ever fell for was you
but I was born to die with the blues
Track Name: Love Song for a Movie Star
On the screen you are an angel.
In real life you are far away.

& you don’t know I exist yet
but pretty soon I’ll be okay.

& on the train I think I see you
 It’s just a dream it’s just a hope

a pretty girl is sat in-situ 
 in a beautiful overcoat


and you don’t know that I’m here

but I think you’d really like me
 and
even if you thought it kind of queer
me and you could fall in love


and in my world you are imagined
and a sanction on my brain

and the same will go for me now

the films all ended yesterday

and in my mind you are still here
though you might as well be dead

because i know I’ll never see you
let alone take you to bed

and you don’t know that I’m here
but I think you’d really like me
and even if you thought it kind of queer

me and you could fall in love

and you don’t know I exist

but I think you’d really like me
and sometimes I imagine that we kiss

and me and you could fall in love.
Track Name: The Werewolf & The Crescent Moon
The werewolf said to the Crescent Moon “I am never going to die until you turn out the stars tonight”

She licked her fingers and she rolled the sky in her hands like a crystal ball.

It broke between them and her fingers turned dark blue and became the night.


The werewolf said that she had never heard such a heartbeat inside her chest.

her insides burst and the beast crawled out and the werewolf & moon cried out.

goodnight and love be with you all.

The werewolf said to the world at large “I am only a beast this time,
you only see me when the moon comes up and my claws never think
of harm”

 The world cried back to the crying wolf “there is only some pain to give, we load our guns and you load the moon and tonight only one survives”

The werewolf loaded her pistol too with a silver bullet and cried.

The Crescent moon watched the life fall out as the last living werewolf died and she sang

goodnight and love be with you all.
