Track Name: Hayley Don't Say Goodbye
You can’t always be on it
All of the time
I’ve been there - well not quite there
But somewhere near

Hayley don’t say goodbye
To what you do, you do it so well
Hayley don’t say goodbye
To what you do, you do it so well
And we’re listening
We’re listening
We’re listening
Hayley, Hayley

I’m always up marching or driving on
In a pocket of assonance
And you are here or anywhere near
Only in my ear, clear and resonant

Hayley don’t say goodbye
To what you do, you do it so well
Hayley don’t say goodbye
To what you do, you do it so well
And we’re listening
We’re listening
We’re listening
Hayley, Hayley

So don’t walk away just take a break Hayley
Don’t walk away we're awaiting
Don’t walk away just take a break Hayley
Don’t walk away we're awaiting

And we’re listening
We’re listening
Hayley, Hayley

Hayley don’t say goodbye
To what you do, you do it so well
Hayley don’t say goodbye
To what you do, you do it so well

And we’re listening
We’re listening
We’re listening
Hayley, Hayley

We’re listening
We’re listening
Hayley
We’re listening
Hayley, Hayley
Track Name: Fold The World In Two
I’ll be good, from now on
I’ll be good while we’re apart
I’ll be good for us
I’ll be good for you, you

How are we ever really gonna know, while we’re apart, we’re not alone? Can we still be together,
when making love’s by telephone
Can we hold our virtue?
Can we fold the world in two?

To be, be someone, be better good,
I have to go somewhere
I figured out I care but I’m going nowhere
here in this world
Before you know we’ll be together in a cold world in two

I’ll be good, from now on
I’ll be good while we’re apart I’ll be good for us
I’ll be good for you, you

How are we ever really gonna know, while we’re apart, we’re not alone? Can we still be together
when making love’s by telephone?
Can we hold our virtue?
Can we fold the world in two?

To be, be someone, be better good,
I have to go somewhere
I figured out I care but I’m going nowhere
here in this world
Before you know we’ll be together in a cold world in two

I cannot walk away, I will fly

Can we fold the world in two?
Can we fold the world in two?
Can we fold the world in two?
Can we fold the world in two?
Fold the world in two
Can we fold the world in two?
Track Name: Escapee
Caught climbing
Call him down
He can’t be seen to be leaving

Escapee, escaping
From the paradise he has made
Escapee, escaping
From the paradise he has made
Escapee, escaping

Constant digging
This is the rich life
Of course many die
The Great Leader keeps us alive
So don’t leave

Escapee, escaping
From the paradise he has made
Escapee, escaping
From the paradise he has made
Escapee, escaping

It’s worse outside
But how could you ever know?
How would you ever be without him?

Fall South and I’ll catch you, catch you
Fall South and I’ll catch you, catch you
Fall South and I’ll catch you, catch you
Fall South and I’ll catch you where he can’t catch you

Escapee, escaping
From the paradise he has made
Escapee, escaping
From the paradise he has made
Escapee, escaping
From the paradise he has made
Escapee, escaping
Track Name: Some Envelopes Taste Better Than Others
There I go passing up upon
Relations invitations and a bright opportunity once more
Oh it could have been so much more
Sharing boysenberry shortcake flavour chocolate on a windswept shore
You and me

With the lights all off and the curtains closed
We don’t even have to wear clothes
Well if the sex is not good you’re just a friend to me
And if it’s really good then friends is hard to be
I am one of those
You wanna watch out for those..

So what have I learned? What do I know now?
I’m drinking $5 wine searching for the definitive version of me
Oh won’t you join me? Take a chance baby
Tell me, what do you ache for - is it me?

With the lights all off and the curtains closed
We don’t even have to wear clothes
Well if the sex is not good you’re just a friend to me
And if it’s really good then friends is hard to be
I am one of those
You wanna watch out for those..

Some envelopes taste better than others
I lick the stamp too and it’s covered in my saliva
From my tongue to your home abroad
I’m coming to you
Some types of writing paper allow my hand to more freely wander
It’ll cost me much more but I wanna call you too, soon

And I’d give up everything I own
Just to heal us
I’d give up everything I own
Just to keep that night as it was that night
That night I fell asleep in your arms
That night your arms were gonna wait
When I’d gone away
They were gonna wait for me
Track Name: St Theresa
Two pretty young girls are we
Too late we speak it seems
Alone atop our palace we laugh, dance and sing

But with a woman and a gun underfoot
Through the heart of our home aim is taken
And if she should call
We would surely be dead

St Theresa are you a murderess?
St Theresa are you a murderess?

She bangs hard on the walls and scrapes down our door
And her eyes tell how her mind process works so far from ours

She smashes in windows
She shrieks, threats and mauls
If our neighbour does call
We would surely be dead

St Theresa are you a murderess?
St Theresa are..

With a woman and a gun underfoot
Through the heart of our home
St Theresa calls
Track Name: Within Me
In every city is a place for me where she heals me
But any call from me and she disappears
She’s gone

Butterfly hide in me
Dive into me and survive inside me

If you always do what you’ve always done
You’ll always get what you’ve always got
But with a driving force there’s always more
And you’ll always have a future to live for
Live through me
Look for me

Look for me in the places I hide, I hide in me
Climb into me and surround all of me

Destroy my greed and take me to where I can breathe
Climb into me and shelter within me


Always again I find I’m falling back in love with you
And always again I find myself calling out “Can I stay safe in you?”
In you

Dive into me and survive inside me
Come into me and surround all of me

Destroy my greed and take me to where I can breathe
Climb into me and shelter within me
Track Name: We Sing Songs
So long, there I go
And you will never know what became of me or where I go
From now on I am alone
And it’s a feeling I am making my home

We sing songs no one can hear
When we leave this room they leave our ears
We sing songs no one can hear
When we leave this room they stay in here

And it pours into me when I come home
It pours into me when I come home
It pours into me when I come home
And I hide, yeah I hide

Off we go, unload us all
Into our attics and basements and bedsitting rooms
To my sanctuary deliver me Jeremy
We’re making music without making a sound and now

We sing songs no one can hear
When we leave this room they stay in here
We sing songs no one can hear
When we leave this room they leave our ears

And it pours into me when I come home
It pours into me when I come home
It pours into me when I come home

Mistakes are made of excuses we all do this
Break up down out next time make it sharp

Melodies float away on the breeze and they are gone again and
words get screwed up tucked behind the chair and they are lost for days and
And it pours into me when I come home
It pours into me when I come with
The feel of the beat that made the whole thing is never achieved
Quite to that night you stayed up too late with sleeping lies and stinging eyes and
Lone street lights, til the sun comes up again
And it pours into me when I come home
It pours into me when I come home

Mistakes are made of excuses we all do this
Break up down out next time make it sharp
And it pours into me when I come home

We sing songs no one can hear
When we leave this room they leave our ears
We sing songs no one can hear
When we leave this room they stay in here
Track Name: You Make Me
Tonight I’m in an electric mood
Standing here in this neon room
And this party is down to you
You let me believe in this dream
I’m ready to fall for you
If you’re willing to walk my route
I will devote myself just to you
You let me believe in this dream

I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave
‘cos you make me

Tonight my smile reaches right round you
Standing up for a lighter view
And this feeling is loud like you
You let me believe in this dream
I’ve let go and I’m touching you
I can taste every sound that moves
My inner thoughts pour out into you
You let me believe in this dream

I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave
‘cos you make me
I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave
‘cos you make me

Every action is directed at me
Every new voice is speaking directly into me
And you are my favourite fantasy
You are my favourite thing to make believe

I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave
‘cos you make me
I ask that you stay here and don’t ever leave
‘cos you make me
Track Name: Grow
Hey! Get on that ladder
You’re trying to get taller
in a world of short ambitions and bitter existentialism
Well I live in that world too,
I live right next door to you and I share your views
And I’m coming right up behind you

If you fold I will go on
If you fall I will grow
If you fold I will go on
If you fall I will grow

I’m stretched out on the end of a limb of hope
You may drop, you may resort to violence
This fight is more than just anger, this fight is a war on dictatorship
Disguised as a happy democracy
Dismissed as villains - protesters are seen in the glass eyes of the people
Lies are sold and believed in

If you fold I will go on
If you fall I will grow
If you fold I will go on
If you fall I will grow

Fall over me and I will crumble
Fall over me and I will crumble
Fall over me and I will crumble
Fall and I will
I will grow
I will grow
I will grow

Hey! Get on that ladder
You’re trying to get fatter in a world of thin aspirations and counterproductive imprisonment
I said I live in that world too, I live right next door to you and I share your views
And I’m coming right up behind you

If you fold I will go on
If you fall I will grow
If you fold I will go on
If you fall I will grow
Track Name: My Father
I was a child I awoke to a hushed darkened argument
I saw large figures moving heavily, their shadows cast about
And I dare not assume the subject of fuel
But their voices hummed a familiar dull tune
As the tension touched my skin
One dropped finally and still

Cries of “Batten down the hatches man,
you can’t keep on in this town,
when you just killed a man”
And what a life you now must lead –
clothes on the end of a stick in a handkerchief
And you can’t be my father

The town clock stands taller than any building I have every seen
With the heretic stood in front silhouetted - the sun and column strong
I felt the power of human words, without a touch raise a hand to my blood
“This man should be returned to court”, he said
“To be tried by us as God would wish”
As the tension burnt my skin
The crowd split open and still

They cried “Batten down the hatches man - he can’t keep on in this town
when he just killed a man”
And what a life you now must lead - clothes on the end of a stick in a handkerchief
And he can’t be a father

My father
My father
I wonder do I miss this character - in stories I hear concocted through the years
about my evil father

There’s burrows made, by rabbits and hares - maybe you’d live there
There’s milk in fields where leather grows and clear water in these streams
And as I age I wonder
When is this age I’ll be old enough to understand
what happens when a man turns on a man?

Cries of “Batten down the hatches man - he can’t keep on in this town
when he just killed a man”
And what a life you now must lead - clothes on the end of a stick in a handkerchief
And you can’t be my father

My father
My father
I wonder do I miss this character - in stories I hear concocted through the years
about my evil father
