Track Name: Amberlina
More life comes from the trees
Than flowers, fruit and leaves.
For when the bark it breaks
The tree a resin makes.

What you need to fossilise
Is a stable compromise
Over centuries

Ooze over all that you embrace
You protect all you encase
Amberlina
As a healer you are scent
Safe and sound in your intent
Amberlina

Carried on a springtime wave
You were sinking, you were saved
Throw yourself onto the shore
Like a thousand times before

You may decorate my home
Shape the glass get smoked and blown
Or I may drink you down

Ooze over all that you embrace
You protect all you encase
Amberlina
As a healer you are scent
Safe and sound in your intent
Amberlina
Track Name: Mouth
The long-awaited bypass is covered in snow
It’s 4am, and I feel like I am in Fargo.
The sky’s the colour of the man who took your smile away;
You’d have lost it anyway; there’s no safe in keeping.

There’s no stars worth watching, these are just repeats.
Now you’ve fixed the last thing to keep you off the streets
And the message is so clear: now is not the time to say what’s on your mind
Now it’s your big chance to keep your big mouth shut.

Satellites are falling to the ground,
Tidal waves so high, yet you don’t make a sound
It’s the beginning of the end, and now it’s surely time
To step out from the line
In the next life will you keep you big mouth shut?
Track Name: One Or The Other
All that I’ve witnessed
And all that I’ve seen
We can’t be the same
But we all have a dream
It’s shame, but we’ve got to be one or the other,
It seems.
