Track Name: Neon Fixation
so much for I believe
so much for all the tricks
that you kept hidden up your sleeve
for as I hunt the track
I see the packs deceptive in their number
this means nothing to me
this all means nothing to me

and it still reads the same
a turn of phrase or influence
to lead us all astray
and as they spring the trap
there is a mist to fuel
the misdirection
this means nothing to me
this still means nothing to me
Track Name: 9 Times Out Of 10
well what d'ya know?
talk is cheap and lies are cheaper
lies are cheaper
always ready to play
talk a good game

and when you would like to speak your mind
well what ya gonna do?
9 times out of 10 you're a winner
then again
you should keep your mouth shut
if you know what's good for you

and how d'ya know
just cos you keep
don't mean you're a keeper
mean you're a keeper
never willing to choose
always refuse

and when you would kill to live so well
what ya gonna do?
high time to pretend
that you wanna make amends
you should keep your mouth shut
if you know what's good for you

you should keep it to yourself
you should keep it to yourself

you should keep your mouth shut
if you know what's good for you
Track Name: Falter
so you wait for another one to come your way
chances never come too late, don't delay
so you see, we're drifting on an open sea
I'm talking hypothetically
I'm talking hypothetically
and if you falter
and if you falter
and if you falter
well that's just how it'll be

and maybe you're the real one
someone who can see through these mirrored walls
maybe I'm delusional
and if you falter
and if you falter
and if you falter
well that's just how it'll be

and I guess this is what you're asking for
the consequence of always wanting more

well that's just how it'll be
Track Name: Some Kind Of Poetry
it was almost like a verse borrowed
from a classic book that everybody knows
where everything's romanticised
and the apple of somebody's eye
is quintessentially so
like some kind of poetry

did it grind to an automatic stop?
because it came down an awful lot I'm sure
it came to me in a notion
and I saw things in a slow motion
so quintessentially so
like some kind of poetry
Track Name: When You Go
a house to call a home
I don't wanna leave this place
a source to light a room
none more than your face
if you leave
would you come back to me?
if you leave
would you come back?

I don't wanna lose out
on something I feel that i should keep
I don't wanna let go, only hold it close to me
and if you go will you say
you'll come back to me some day
when you go
when you go

a void that lingers still
a chill that bites to the bone
a voice that lives on in
a message on the phone
if it fades
would it come back to me?
if it fades
would it come back?

I don't wanna freeze up
become a statue made of stone
I don't wanna miss you
and ever feel like I'm alone
so when you go will you say
you'll come back to me some day
when you go
when you go
Track Name: Who's To Save You From Yourself
judging by his face he is full of confidence
full of accidents and apologies
she's a damsel in that dress and a dismal sorry mess
without anything to say for themselves

big investor, great pretender
he's a golf pro at weekends
healthy dose of rachmaninov
and prescription medicines

I don't mind it
I don't mind if you've got nothing to say
cos I don't talk much anyway

catalogued cassettes of this storyline presents
nauseating food in your airspace
holed up in a box hotel, I guess you can never tell
when you don't want to talk or show your face

and her lips taste like her toothpaste
and her hair exotic fruits
cigarette fumes in the bathroom
alter ego in costume

I don't mind it
I don't mind if you've got nothing to say
cos I don't talk much anyway

who's to save you from yourself?
who's to save you from yourself?
