Track Name: The Grove
Owel:

Step back, baby. Don't come near,
I’m bad luck charming of a broken mirror.
Fear you're gonna read what I wrote with a closed mind
Or with closed eyes. I'd explain it but there's no time.
Follow all the road signs, end with the water.
Bought a one way ticket for friendship departure.
Together in the dark, it’s a battle when the sun's up.
A shadow in the feel of loves clutch when our tongues touch.
Thumb sucked, wasn't in lust but pain.
Didn't know it was tough. Wishing it was the same.
You remember when I was stuck hard by the graveyard cupid?
We'd make dark music and break my heart to it.
Native art moving to the worst. Gotta get a grip.
Never found a home on a road made of yellow bricks.
Evidence, everything's a part of the development.
Heaven said relief, but the reason was the hell of it

(chorus)

We took a walk by the grove
The moment's already through
We couldn't give up the ghost
The ghost was all that we knew
Afraid of feeling disposed,
Disowned, dishonoured and used
Just say those three little words
I’ll tell you "and I you"

Corboe:

It’s all water under the bridge
Another brick in the wall the last straw that’s dangerous
Like this unoccupied mind thinking what if
A flickering light is out sorta calling it quits
Abandon ship against all odd
You’re stuck banging rocks together trying to make a spark
She’s gotta stop playing nicky nine door with your heart
enough's enough she's either there or she's not
Call it whatever you want, like a lot to handle
Too much dead weight yah sprained an ankle
Label it a mistake and cancel, save peso and let go slow
Break it down baby give me some more
Let me feel heat cuz the airs dam cold
No sword in the stone but a pen in my hear
It’s the little things in life that will tear us apart

(chorus)

We took a walk by the grove
The moment's already through
We couldn't give up the ghost
The ghost was all that we knew
Afraid of feeling disposed,
Disowned, dishonoured and used
Just say those three little words
I’ll tell you "and I you"
Track Name: Sad Girl
Owel:

No sleep, no escape from a mad world.
Tear drop on the face of a sad girl.
Real talk in the form of a whimper.
"Heat died down in the cold of the winter"
Go through cinders; try to find the faulty parts
Buy yourself a clue and maybe put it in a shopping cart.
You wanna shine bright and move the fantasy far
to, ironically, a city where you can't see stars.
Got to start fresh or the plan will be lost.
i said " the world may be yours but the tragedy's ours"
and "what a loss". We could turn into a tragic song.
Every day we could play Rashomon
Sacrificial days passing on
Albion be Avalon.
Turn your back and I grab your arm.
How do you disappear with the magic gone?

(chorus)

The autumn recedes with nothing more than a shrug,
while the sad girl bleeds coloured black pearl blood.
She's taking a leap but nothings ever enough
for fallen leaves to fall in love.
The autumn recedes with nothing more than a shrug,
while the sad girl bleeds coloured black pearl blood.
She's taking a lead but nothings ever enough
for fallen leaves to fall in .....

(bridge 1)

to fall in love
like autumn leaves
could fall in love
I’m on my knees
to pick you up
like fallen leaves
could fall in love

Corboe:

Her eyes say we've all been blinded
by the light our heart she can't find it
were cold as ice in her mind she vibrant
the flashy type that hides pain with silence
talking quite muttering still
a faint whisper in the dark you don't know if it’s real
it kinda hits you in the heart kid how do you feel
you’re at a fork in road I suppose spin the wheel
there’s no stepping stone no mass appeal
just a diamond in the rough with the dirt concealed
and a blank stare that repairs and heels
with that soothing touch that's as cold as steel
Its so surreal when the sad girls dancing
the way she moves in that timeless fashion
one of those sorta good for you bad habits/
you can't let go when the kiss is magic

(bridge 2)
Love
It ain't love
Although it might sound rough
that this might be lust,
well it sure ain't love

(chorus)
The autumn recedes with nothing more than a shrug,
while the sad girl bleeds coloured black pearl blood.
She's taking a lead but nothings ever enough
for fallen leaves to fall in love.
The autumn recedes with nothing more than a shrug,
while the sad girl bleeds coloured black pearl blood.
She's taking a lead but nothings ever enough
for fallen leaves to fall in .....
Track Name: Hannah
Tovah:

Although we float and weave through time,
The writing on the wall says "The End Is Nigh"
So flightless birds will pretend to fly
And black out the sky
Let this world be laid to rest
Like your head is on my chest.
History will fall into an ocean of death
And hope for the best
When all the mountains wear to dust
Every single kiss we shared will still endure for us,
They say.
What about all they say?

Corboe:

Who’s to blame for the wrong turn
The song bird that's late for the concert
I've heard you gotta make it all worth while
Pick an anthem learn the words and smile
Like its all business don't cramp my style
Put your dancing shoes on walk that mile
You’re moving on up next stop success
How you got there you were dressed to impress I guess

Owel:

Microphone check, one, two, what is this?
I want to get a handle on your tough existence.
It’s hard to miss with your wings exposed
That you finger got a prick from the English rose.
You were indisposed when you had to tell a lullaby.
Handful of memories, a belly full of butterflies.
Running out of many things, if anything, it wasn't time.
We could even take it to the moment that we left behind

(Chorus)

When all the mountains wear to dust
Every single kiss we shared will still endure for us,
They say.
What about all they say?

Owel:

Every kiss pressed deep to leave scars
Til we get to the point where we are.
T-O-G-E-T-H-E-R
F-O-R-E-V-E-R
Wept over weeping guitars, disappearing is a real big waste
If you fall like tears under the star lit year, then tell me "alright dear, well let’s leave this place"

Corboe:

All I hear is I need a break
I gotta get my foot in the door someday
They say be glad you exist if you wanna get far you gotta work hard for it
Ride cars and accomplishments
Get credits card debt and be gone with it
Get a wife a divorce think positive
its a means to an end here a starter kit

(Chorus)

When all the mountains wear to dust
Every single kiss we shared will still endure for us,
They say.
What about all they say?

Those choices led to impending doom.
Your voice has echoed in empty rooms.
If it haunts you, tell me it haunts you too.
If you want to, tell me you want to soon.
Track Name: New Gates
(chorus)

We've been lost and found
Crumbled and thrown around
Is underneath the ground
Where we belong?

Corboe:

Another one bites the dust
You know one day it will be us
We’ll all fade away in god we trust
To make doves cry and such
To free our minds of doubt sure enough
He did last week but it filled back up
It’s too much to handle baby don't feel rushed
In due time you'll understand this stuff
This love and lust yah know the bird and the bees
The finer things in life interrupt your dreams
A jigsaw puzzle with a missing piece
That you'll only gonna find when your six feet deep
Way down beneath these crowded streets, is where it hides you'll find the key,
So dry your eyes cuz clock don't lie and time flies by quickly

(chorus)

We've been lost and found
Crumbled and thrown around
Is underneath the ground
Where we belong?

New gates burning in the corners of her smile
There's new gates burning in the...

Owel:

Drive me down beneath the surface.
Sell souls, redeem the worthless.
Casting roles defeats the purpose.
Shadow played by Ian Curtis.
Feel the nervous overload.
Take a breath, the next episode is slow
Got a paycheque but it left them comatose
Turned stage left to the stairs and overdose
HOLD THAT THOUGHT, give me a minute.
No, I don't do drugs so i got to be a cynic.
Though I wanna get a ticket for the lottery and win it,
For the winning numbers, honestly, you gotta be a wizard.
Possibly I’m bitter with a sweet tooth smile
And I wanna get to up to feel down for a while.
Like, wow. Why the hell do I bother?
To author all the words I can't offer?

(chorus)

We've been lost and found
Crumbled and thrown around
Is underneath the ground
Where we belong?

Where we belong
Beneath me
I hear you
We've been lost and found
Crumbled and thrown around
Is underneath the ground
Where we belong?
Where we be
Where we belong
Beneath me
I hear you moan

New Gates Burning In The Corners Of Her Smile
