Track Name: Doing Wrong
go on little man you can rest your head
its 4 in the morning you're soaked in red
and the cold of the stone and the iron door

makes you wanna go back how you were before (x2)

born with a name then i went away
now im a boy in a cage in a smokey grey

take me out of the yard where the burly ones prowl
and then maybe you're the one who can save me now (x2)

...i know, the garden gates are closed 
so take what you need, keep them guarded from your foes 
from your foes.

no i dont know when im doing wrong

i need aid im alone in a burdened throng

maybe we'd be the same if we started again
if i could only be a burden now and then 
i would only be a burden now and then

...i know the garden gates are closed 
so take what you need keep it guarded from your foes 
from your foes

there's no mourning, i see Him, He's calling me now 
i'll be warm again 
there's a wonder for me and He's calling it loud 
i'll be warm again
Track Name: The Fields
come follow me through the fields there's an opening ive seen
and it calls me in my sleep
if you live for the days pack a bag tell your girls to behave, can't stay we're moving on
seems time never changed cos in my line it's all been the same
no matter how i play
pay your bills, lose your ills, go, go get your fill what you you need?
cos i'm going anyway

oooh fare-thee-well, can't abide all the aches and swells
so move through the hordes, in the silence and growing discord

cos it's all been the same, the take and the blame
how can it be on if it's off? my days
cos it's all been the same, the take and the blame
how can it be on if it's off? my days
oh i'll be off, my days.

come follow me on through the fields there's an opening ive seen
and it's where i spend my days
what now, who you callin? watch how you're walkin in them shoes
what you wearin anyway
come if you will there's a back bite and all that i can do
is stand and watch you fall
though i love my life, it's all over 'fore you know, blink your eye
smile and watch me go

don't be you, don't be there
i don't wanna be mean we we so unaware
don't be who? don't be where?
don't wanna believe we aint going nowhere
don't be you, don't be there
you don't want me to leave when it's all in the air
don't be who? don't be where?
don't wanna believe ain't goin nowhere
don't be you, don't be there
don't wanna believe we were so unaware
don't be rude, don't you dare
you're balling away but i'm all in a daze and my beau
Track Name: Hollow Days
maybe this is nothing, but it no longer seems so tight
the story of the day son, so lay low and keep polite
it's wicked when you're younger my love, but don't let it beat you away
cos your northern sky will see you right, so don't leave that colt a-waiting

Moonlight weighs on my old hollow days
so maybe i'll stay

maybe this is nothing, i don't seem to hear you right
so fall in line or wait son, it don't make your wrongs right
you're wicked in your tongue and you know, that oh i'll be beasting away
no northern sky will keep me dry, when im making my own mistakes

moonlight weighs on my old hollow days
so maybe i'll stay

don't you see no reason no more? you know i knew you before
and ive been acting a fool in so many ways, don't wanna give anymore
and i know i'll be wasting a-wasting away, oh i can't breathe anymore
though im on your side, no i can't fight anymore
don't you see what i tried to be? no i can't be anymore
and i know what i owe to you, oh for you. but i can't see anymore.

oh, the ways are my own, don't follow me down
mind how you go, its coming back around
Track Name: More Than Hoped For
long way. don't look back keep ticking off on your days
cos i'd hate,for you to lose your cool in a thick of smoke and crave
stone cold, late in the morning and i'm stinking yawning and so
i keep hope that the waiting feelings fine

say what you will, these shoes are my own
look at the way they control me
lady one day they're setting me free

slow days, look over your shoulder now we're creepin on ya again
for gods sake. she's barely even cold and im keeping on now, you know
but i hope that maybe there's a writer with the fibre to blow them away
cos every day, im reminded of the void and im seeing it
over and over..again

so say what you will, baby i'm gone
hand me the light you can show me
stay for the kill, if not for the fun
it's late in the day, say that we're done
show me the way we can go free
or maybe the fear will keep me at bay

no steady wages and a heavy loan
steady days are on my heady own
steady comps now where's my ready home
steady moving and i don't know where I'm going
i don't know where im going
i don't know where im going
with more than hoped for but less than needed
more than hoped for but less than needed
