Track Name: Tinnitus
its not the time to work it out, alone
you think its mine to scream and shout, oh no
re attach your jaw and go
dont swim against the flow

its not the same when its not loud in here
without the pain inside my head and ears
theyve all gone im bouncing all
across the ceilings and walls

who would know what was to come
here comes the violence, the silence has all gone
im lost inside and i dont care

oh you dont know how far i'd go to stay here
stay around where silence is rare, look here
shut your ears and shut your eyes
coz the noise is gonna rise
Track Name: Victims Of Reality (ft. Year Of The Monkey)
dont expect normality
question their identiy
they avoid reality
and you cant be to sure
pull their faces back reveal
who they really are
marks you left will never heal
the truth is never far

you'll never know
how far they will go

expect the unpredictable
and the two faced shit they pull
they will not admit to you
what you really know
aspirations in the mirror
it will not become much clearer
blurred with more and much more beer
and things to warp their brains

you'll never know
how far they will go

sink their feet into the ground
statue symbols all around
theyll not move until they see
they're victims of reality

if you dont be careful you'll find yourself in a box
six feet away from the world
they will throw away the key after it has been locked
away your life has been hurled

you'll never know
how far they will go

sink their feet into the ground
statue symbols all around
theyll not move until they see
they're victims of reality
Track Name: City Song
big smoke, chimneys
endeavour within me
circling the tops of the towers
scrape the sky
hustle and bustle
litter floating russles
hubbub and the milling people
pushing to get by

slurs cue laughter
drunks turn irate after
the carriage or the platforms
find their state entertaining
commuters get pissed
as their transport has been missed
and their mood follows weather as
the sky starts with the raining

daily routines and the same old faces
same morning paper same boring places

a light it flickers on
the corridors echoed with song
a penniless hat and a rugged old mat
home to a bag of ballads
phone calls ring around
come as one big muddled sound
moaning about the rain
or lack of chicken in the salad


theres many songs about the city but dont resonate what we know to be true
theres many wanting pity oh for heavens sake everybodies feeling it too
