Track Name: Second Wave
there is only reason now holding us back / no ocean there for us to cross / the distance is here /
I can almost make you out in the shapes / like sketches from a different life / something’s wrong /
I don’t know if I can hold on // you don’t even know what it’s like / you don’t even know how it feels
sometimes / loving you the way that I do // is this the second wave / or did we tune out / did we really
think that we could pretend / nothing’s changed // you don’t even know what it’s like / you don’t even
know how it feels sometimes / loving you the way that I do / I’ll be on the second wave / riding on the
back of the wings of change / when love is all we’ve got to go on // love is all I’ve got to go on / love
is all / we’ve got to hold on / love is all / I’ve got to go // you don’t even know what it’s like / you don’t
even know how it feels sometimes / loving you the way that I do / high above the ocean wall / far out
of earshot of the silence call / this is now the second wave //
Track Name: Echoes Of The Great Empires
the horses run through my dreams tonight / there’s no end in sight / to the thrill of no consequence
/ I saw you through the eyes of a child // the pillars of the golden age / to the rocks in the valley of
Elah / echoes of the great empires / remnants of the stones that remain // the kiss of death is to know
what’s best for you / it’s written in the days of old // the rulers of the modern age / to the stones in
the temples of Ra / the embers of a dying star / the reaches of the setting sun / to the heart where the
river runs dry / echoes of the great empires // ambition’s like a drug / you never saw the danger of /
the iron grip of your desire / to spread your wings / too close to the sun //
Track Name: Rumours / Secrets
come on, come on / if this is love then where did we go wrong / if this is love then what have we
become / I’m tired of waiting for the start / this golden age / all my riches turn to rags and bones
/ all my virtues to a heart of stone / if this is love then tell me when will the loving start // there’s a
rumour all the secrets have been told / there’s a crooked line and a warning sign / where the lies
are paved with gold / the premise of a rumour alone / couldn’t turn a heart to a stone / these days
any rumour goes // so is this love / or is it poetry that can’t be born / a perfect symmetry that can’t be
worn / sometimes I think we’ve come too far // there’s a rumour all the secrets have been told / there’s
an Inner Sound on an Applecross for every road that I’ve been on / the premise of a rumour alone
/ couldn’t turn a heart to a stone / these days any rumour goes // give me love over secrets / lighten
dark councils I hold //
Track Name: The Tongue Is A Fire
something is starting to give / when the lights are all gone what is there left inside / except the
shapes where the shadows have been / go your way and rejoice / for this is what you wanted / there
will be no time left to stand still / for if you could be found / then surely love would fnd you / but
you can’t take the sting out of it / you can run from the truth / but you can’t outrun the lie / you can’t
outrun the lie / you can’t outrun the lie // not even love can keep us apart / not even love can keep us
apart // and you kill for the hunter within / and you take what you want and you become the hunted
/ well did you really never see it coming / change your heart / change your heart / and wake up from
the lie / and wake up from the lie / and wake up from the lie // not even love can keep us apart / not
even love can keep us apart // you can’t outrun the lie / you can’t outrun the lie / so wake up from the
lie / so wake up from your lie //
Track Name: Black Lightning
black lightning gonna strike me down / for the things I’ve done / for the things I’ve done / those
heavy clouds are weighing down / upon me now / upon me now / got a lot to answer for / can’t
take this guilt no more / if black lightning’s gonna strike me down / I’m ready now / I’m ready
now // we’re on out way to the old state line / in this valley of bones / in this valley of bones / no
time to waste / no faith to lose / on this road we choose / on this road I choose / got no ticket left to
ride / no hunger left inside / we’re on our way / to the old state line / just you and I / just you and
I // got a lot to answer for / but no one’s asking me no more / if black lightning’s gonna strike me
down / I’m ready now / I’m ready now //
Track Name: The Favourite Son
the ghost of the last great highway
danced like a drone on the air
living out of a bag from delta to drag
I was thumbing my way to nowhere
I was halfway from here to the shot glass
and halfway from feeling to numb
I was hanging my head for drink or for dread
when I found you my favourite son
but all I could feel was the humdrum
and all I could hear was the hum
everything that you said going over my head
in light of my favourite son

I need you like a planet needs a black hole
I need you like a lover needs to lose control
I need you like a heart needs to concede
I need you but you’re not what I need

the weight of the deadlock was lifted
the curse of the age was undone
the minutes grew still as if waiting until
the return of my favourite son
but all I could feel was the humdrum
and all I could hear was the hum
an though I wasn’t afraid I was starting to fade
to the sound of my favourite son

I need you like a planet needs a black hole
I need you like a lover needs to lose control
I need you like a hear needs to concede
I need you but you’re not what I need
I need you like a river needs to run dry
I need you like a bullet needs an alibi
I need you like the earth needs a bad seed
I need you but you’re not what I need

you are my favourite son
you are the only one
you are my favourite son
