Track Name: 20/20 (Amelia)
"you don't wanna know what's really going on
you just wanna say you knew it in the end
when you're shaken up from a withdrawal
you'll be begging just to start again

facing yesterday, you're weakest suit -
empty pockets, a broken poker face -
goodbye mother father, now my brothers
20/20 if we can start again

she's a fucking risk taker when you're not around
like a backward letter printed in a book
white noise into silence
when did you stop thinking for your self?

it's no easier to do it now than it was then
it's no easier to do it now than it was then
place your porcelain on a raging bull

she's a fucking risk taker when you're not around
like a backward letter printed in a book
white noise into silence
when did you stop thinking for yourself"
Track Name: Cat's Cradle (Amelia)
open your eyelids wider
she's standing right beside you
cat's cradle with our tongues
don't tell anyone

breath makes ghosts at dawn
tear the classroom curtains down
make a nest for us to sleep
i'll stay awake and think

fold your broken words into
my hands opened wide for you
tear drop tea in thimbles
memory's stupid ripples

simple song and simple girl
simple story, simple world
run away to someplace new...
simple, stupid point of view

i opened my eyes wider
i'm standing right beside you
cat's cradle with our tongues
i won't tell anyone
Track Name: We Will Host A Party
take the water from the desert
bring it to the city
put it in the fountains
don't deny you're robbing other people
of tomorrow's bounty
fuck the world
so we can host another party
a party

fly another helicopter
cover up the mudslides
god forbid the world should see us as we are
the gutters, shouting out tomorrow's headlines
stop the publications
it will be our ruin
our ruin
Track Name: Tell The Kids It's Gonna Be Alright (Amelia)
so you went ahead and told everybody something else was going on
didn't ever think that we'd find out you were lying to us all along

every other time, i looked away, i looked away
when the time is right, you'll play the the game, play the game

no, i don't wanna, but i gotta
push it aside and tell the kids it's gonna be alright
i coulda told ya, you couldn't fool her
the kids these days are smarter than you'll ever give them credit for

in another world, we'd be the same, we'd be the same
here i'm learning how to take the blame, to take the blame

you looked away
couldn't fool her

no i don't wanna, but i gotta
push it aside and tell the kids it's gonna be alright

i could told ya, you couldn't fool her
the kids these days are smarter than you'll ever give them credit for
Track Name: 40 Numbers (Amelia)
i'm counting lines on the road
how many paces get me home
if i look up i know i am lost
my wires are crossed again
and i'm so scared to wake up in the wrong
jesus christ father, it's harder than i thought
another path to take us underground
there's not enough light

i'll build my world with shapes and scales that you can't touch
using numbers using figures that you'll believe

take more space, crack the code
shrink it down even more till it slips away
overheat, overload, let it go
it's 40 numbers to remember a lover's name
too much light, close the blinds
copper wire underground overhead to tether me to you
this is a deadland, this is a desert
there's not a code we can break to get out
we're shapes with form
shades without colour
here we are walking with no where to go

so i'm still counting lines on the road
in the dark without you, it's harder than i thought
this is the path of only hollow men
shadows fall around them
Track Name: 40 Numbers (Iris)
i'm counting lines on the road
how many paces get me home
if i look up i know i am lost
my wires are crossed again
and i'm so scared to wake up in the wrong
jesus christ father, it's harder than i thought
another path to take us underground
there's not enough light

i'll build my world with shapes and scales that you can't touch
using numbers, using figures that you'll believe
take more space, crack the code
it's 40 numbers to remember a lover's name
too much light, close the blinds
there's copper wire underground, overhead to tether me to you
this is a deadland, this is a desert
there's not a code we can break to get out
we're shapes without form
shades without colour
here we are walking with nowhere to go

so i'm still counting lines on the road
in the dark without you, it's harder than i thought
this is the path of only hollowed men
shadows fall around them
Track Name: Tell The Kids It's Gonna Be Alright (Iris)
did you ever think that we'd find out you were lying to us all along

every other time, you looked away, you looked away
when the time is right, you'll play the game, you'll play the game

no i don't wanna, but i gotta
push it aside and tell the kids it's gonna be aright
(did you ever think that we'd find out you were lying to us all along)
i coulda told ya, you couldn't fool her
the kids these days are smarter than you'll ever give them credit for
(so you went ahead and told everybody something else was going on, was going on)

in another world we'd be the same, we'd be the same
but here we're finding ways to take the blame, to take the blame

no, i don't wanna, but i gotta
push it aside and tell the kids it's gonna be alright
i coulda told ya, you couldn't fool her
the kids these days they're smarter than you'll ever give them credit for

you didn't ever think that we'd find out you were lying to us all along
so you went ahead and told everybody something else was going on
you didn't ever think that we'd find out you were lying to us all along
so you went ahead and told everybody something was going on

everybody went to the party
everybody went but me
now i have to tell their story
cause everybody's gone but me
(x3)
everybody went to the party
everyone including me
funny cause we heard the warning
of our ruin in the rising sea
