Track Name: Pictures Of Soldiers
Hologram pictures of soldiers
Bayonet eyes reflect in rainbows
Drones of domestic bliss
Ice blue knife changes hands
In the flickering wings of a moth
Swallow tail broken wing

Paper thin light of rainbows
In the palm of a hand
In holograms of pictures of soldiers
In reflected, in reflected
Domestic bliss
In ice blue knives
Changes hands
Flickering wings of broken moth
Track Name: Beer Caddisfly
I'm falling into a river
And the silver memories of the windscreens
I'm looking out the back window
Practical solutions don't seem to work
I'm driving at 95
Towards the Welsh mountains
I'm all messed up with wooden pegs
Laces untied and trailing
The aspen and the witch hazel

The blinding headlights
And the rapid movement
Forward motion - forward forward
The blinding headlights
And the rapid movement
The aspen and the witch hazel
All the practical solutions don't seem to work
I'm driving at 95
Towards the Welsh mountains

I'm pretty fucken far from ok
The practical solutions
That seem to move towards some kind of
Trailing laces

The blinding headlights
And the rapid movements
Forward forward
Looking out the back window
The silver screen the windscreen wipers
Travelling backwards
I'm gazing through the back window
And the blinding headlights
And the rapid movement
Forward forward
Track Name: Eastern Promises
Creatures fought themselves
And tagged themselves as losers
Some of them fought between
And tagged themselves as winners
Hopeless charity
And channels of flying duckweed

Guitar strummed aloud
And switched between the channels
The corporations tagged themselves as losers
The axes grinding in the canyons of the City
Bars of culture
Of Tetley and Tuborg
Track Name: Street Corner
The last time I saw it
Was on the street corner
The last time I saw it
Was on the street corner
And the frost lay across the ground
And each and every moment
Is etched into the wind
Is etched into the bone
Track Name: Change Alley
Night turns into the day
It's an epic feeling
All the newcomers
All the old men
And the young men that sit
In their traders red braces
Mr big shot in the 21st Century
Is not a schitzo
With one proviso
Two houses in the sun
Twenty pints of cider
The particle beam
That would have satisfied all newcomers
And all the old men

Creature comfort - seldom satisfied
(Creature comfort)
Contraband - elephant ivory
(Ivory)
Silver service - crime of passion
(Crime of passion)
Hereditary - mended shoes in the factory
Horror film
(Horror)

Organ grinder and the young men
That sit in their traders braces
Take a walk down Change Alley
