Track Name: The Four and Two
You're two
You're cosy
In Love, no doubt
But now, you say you ache
For nothing, and all

So dive now you've found
Your way, to the down
Pearls deep, in the dark
and closed to the world

Hold out,
Hold on
You're fine
It's in
The four, the four, the four
And two.
Track Name: Kerosene
Trade my coffee for Kerosene
Light my insides, set fire to me
All that smoke, no sign of coal
This level head will leave us all

Now i see her,
Sitting in the darkest corners
Pulling her strings
And it seems this girl, could set these boys alight

Set me burning, don't put me out
Pour the embers on my searing doubt
All that smoke and no sign of coal
She only burns, and she won't be told

Now i see her,
Sitting in the darkest corners
Pulling her strings
And it seems this girl, could set these boys alight

Now i see her,
Sitting in the darkest corners
Pulling her strings
And it seems this girl, could set these boys alight
Track Name: Taxes
Won't you take me to dinner?
We'll discuss my taxes
Can't you see I'm a winner
and I shouldn't have to pay this
Can't we be civil
Over lobster cuisine
I might be persuaded
If you lavish me

And if i could sit in your pocket
You could sit in mine
And If you feel that you're worth it
Well I
I could make it worth your time

Won't you take me to dinner
We'll discuss our status
Top balcony sinners
Free living money traitors
Can't mess with the digits?
Set us up for a lifetime
We'll send it to Jersey
Reaping dollars from the dimes


And if i could sit in your pocket
You could sit in mine
And If you feel that you're worth it
Well I
I could make it worth your time

Won't you take me to dinner?
We'll discuss my taxes
Can't you see I'm a winner
and I shouldn't have to pay this
Track Name: Pillow
You sleep alone
and thats no good for anyone
Found your home, in the arms of a pillow
Stretch your toes to the other side
and come undone

I long to hear you breath,
In the darkest hours
Til' then i am a ghost
Hide between the sheets
The solace of my pillow

Grit your teeth
To the sight of hand in hand
Fingers woven
Left alone, and its more than you can stand
Like the leaves, i fall to the wind
and come undone

I long to hear you breath
In the darkest hours
Til' then i am a ghost
Hide between the sheets
the solace of my pillow

Track Name: Fate
Couldn't help it, rolled right off my tongue
I felt an old fear, enveloping me
I was open, naked like my heart
Bared to the world and especially you

So I'm done, and its killing me
Put my foot in and its been too long to take it back again
I'm done entertaining
There's nothing left but answers
I'm waiting, I'm waiting

But its useless, you only hold my stare
And the clock ticks, my fortune away
While I'm sinking, I won't come up for air
If this is my fate, that's how it will be

So I'm done, and its killing me
Put my foot in and its been too long to take it back again
I'm done entertaining
There's nothing left but answers
I'm waiting, I'm waiting
