Track Name: Invincible
You see these days we try to manage
Being manic and inflicting damage
Then call it karma
We’re the post-colonial savages
With a holy book upon our chests
Religious trauma

See I reckon we’d be better if we
We were younger, we were stronger and our armour wasn’t self-ordination
We’re invincible, and we can never change, we can never change, we can never change.

Where is the queen and all her carriages
We tie a noose around her neck and she still manages
To speak about what really hurts her, so eloquently, her royal blood doesn’t desert her
Poetic justice
See we talk about our wishes, we lay foundations, are we selfish?
Or opportunist; see a kingdom takes a hundred years, to build up fully
But in less than 20 seconds, this earth could lose me
Don’t abuse me keep me safe and warm,
I’m a child of a warzone, I’m used to being alone
I hope you don’t desert me, does your palace have a spare room
For me and my family,
We’re invincible, though we have nothing
We’re invincible, we have nothing
We’re invincible, and we can never change, we can never change

(Part 2)
Will you think of me when it’s all wiped
Fighting for the wrong rights
Telling all your children: “little darlings, let your hate burn bright”
A permanent minority, make you work harder
Long days and long nights
When will I sleep, but still I keep trekking through the moonlight
Am I not invincible, I’m strong right?
Your hate couldn’t bring me down
Am I not invincible (x4)
Track Name: Oh Caroline
(Hit me with your sad eyes,
Hit me with your sad eyes – cry, cry,
And I’ll take you to the seaside – tides, smile, smile, smile)

Summer sadness maybe, tryna find your way back home sweet home
Losing your touch with the streets that you once felt your cold soles on
How did you breathe, with all the dust in you
Where no-one but you was true to you

Where, where is all the love you gave away
Where is all the life you gave, oh Caroline
Oh Caroline

You’ve been ice since you called him, and bleeding from the cold drunk ears
It’s nice when you call him, coz he makes all your self-worth disappear
You hope that you’ll love him,
Coz he’s all that you got in this world of yours;
You can’t do without him
He’s covered you up in his four grey walls

Now you feel alone (Now you feel alone)
Now you feel alone (Now you feel alone)
Now you feel alone (Now you feel alone)
Now you feel alone

(Hit me with your sad eyes – cry, cry,
And I’ll take you to the seaside – tides, smile
It’s the whisky in your pint glass that ask, ask, asks you girl)

Where, where is all the love you gave away
Where is all the life you gave, oh Caroline (Hit me with your sad eyes, cry, cry)
Oh Caroline (And I’ll take you to the seaside , tides, smile, smile, smile
It’s the whisky in your pint glass that ask, ask, ask, ask)

Why you feel alone

Oh where, where all those things you left,
And where, where are all those streets you swept
And where, where is all the life that you gave, oh Caroline
Oh Caroline, oh Caroline, oh Caroline
Will you be fine, my Caroline.
Track Name: Blue
Promises keep me alive
When drowning in the 9 to 5s

Don’t you keep me blue, don’t you kill me
I’ve have all to live for, as long as you say so
Don’t you keep me blue, please keep me alive

The city with the sunken eyes
Blinking to the poor man’s cries
He holds his soul like it might let go of him
And float into the cold sunrise

Don’t you keep me blue, don’t you kill me
I’ve have all to live for, as long as you say so
Don’t you keep me blue, please keep me alive

Please don’t keep me blue
Please don’t keep me blue
Oh please don’t keep me blue
Please don’t keep me blue
Track Name: My Beautiful Liar
This pen it weighs a tonne
But this ink still finds a way to run
Watching all her thoughts go by
Like watching all the clouds float by

She holds me, with a little distant care
And all my innocence, is learning how to disappear
Tell me how do I stay here
Spinning in her misty gravity air
No one here to rescue me

My beautiful liar

She loves me, with a little disregard
And I fall hard, showing I’m my father’s child
And each blade cuts deeper than the one before
“Tell me that you’ll love me more”
I’m singing in the rain outside her door
I’m naïve, I love without care
Knowing I’ve been down this road before
Oh my skin says she’s so beautiful, but a beautiful lie
But what good is the truth when I’ve got you
My beautiful liar
My beautiful liar
Track Name: Kenya
His name is Jacob, His name is Jacob.
He’s 10 years old
He loves watching football
With dad at home
Oh Kenya, Kenya
Oh Kenya, Kenya

Her name is Miriam, she says call me Mimi
Or she’ll ignore
She‘s getting married tomorrow
He lives next door
Oh Kenya. Kenya
Oh Kenya, Kenya
Track Name: Burn
Tears on the pillows
The sheets and the floor
This house is on fire, this house is on fire

So burn baby
(Burn, burn, burn…)
Oh Baby just burn
Oh burn baby burn
Oh burn baby burn

When your heart’s in the autumn, the summer or spring
You can set them free; oh you can set them free
But when the streets are all snowy
And the trees are all bare
You come back to me, you do; you always come back to me

So burn baby burn
(Burn, burn, burn)
Oh Baby my baby burn
Oh burn, burn like the sun burns it
Oh burn, burn all your pain away babe and burn

And burn it all till the dust rise up and the floorboards creak
(My love)
And we feel that heat beneath our feet
(My love)
And the siren howls and the walls turn black

When we’re caught in a moment and the flames have died down
Will you stay with me, will you? Or take your things and leave?
Baby just burn
Ooh just burn
Track Name: Splinters (With You)
Love me when I’m smiling
Love me when the tears fall down
Be a little gentle, don’t you let my young heart drown
Coz I, I’m covered in your splinters
And I won’t make it through the winter

Love me when it’s sunny
Love me when it’s cold and gloom
Lace me up in your embrace
Till I’m fully lost in you
Coz I, I’m covered in your splinters
And I won’t make it through the winter

Without you (you, you) x4

Sitting in my room, watching all this midnight fade
I don’t wanna be my own
I would rather be alone, with you, with you
