Track Name: Blood on the Bathroom Floor
Blood on the bathroom floor
We all saw, we all saw
Blood on the bathroom floor
We all saw

All of this town, all of this town
Gonna run her, run her down
All of this town, all of this town
Gonna point the finger and frown
All of this town, all of this town
Will catch her, catch her out
All of this town, all of this town
We'll see if she drowns

We saw her with the man next door
We all saw
We saw her with the man next door
We all saw
All the curtains drawn, we knew she wasn't on her own
We saw her with the man next door
We all saw

We don't mean, we don't mean to raise the pressure
We don't mean, we don't mean to raise the pressure
But she never did seem to fit the picture

My mother said I never should
Disobey or you will pay
My mother said I never should
Disobey or you will pay
My mother said I never should
Disobey or you will pay

Blood on the bathroom floor
We all saw
We saw her with the man next door
We all saw
All of the curtains drawn
We all saw
And all of this town
Will see if she drowns
Track Name: No Rose
The scene of the crime
The reason and the rhyme
The boom from the bars
The tyres on the tar
The rubber and the coil
The needle and the foil
The smoke and the screen
The siren scream

I had a dream that in these streets in dread of midnight
When sleepers heave between their sheets
I saw my rose go reaching for the blue
Breaking through the roots tore the pavement into two

Another day, another corridor
Another faceless place as every place before
I try and I try to hold you in my mind
But I'm just too busy gnawing at the bones of my desires

I saw my rose
Go reaching for the blue
Breaking through
The roots tore the pavement into two

I told everyone I know
But they just told me where to go
I told everyone I know
But they just told me where to go
They said no
There's no rose
Track Name: Whose Army
Waking up at dawn the single raven calls
There's an army waiting by the city walls
The castle is deserted, no sign of the king and queen
There's no one to see we are at siege
No lights, no phone, the power's gone down
Could you tell me, tell me whose army's marching
Over the city walls?

Whose army, whose army, whose army

The world has turned to ashes in their hands
The villages are burning but at who's command?
And the empire dreams in catatonic calm
To the vampire screams of car alarms
And they've broken all the stones of all the roads that lead to Rome
And I'm standing here alone on an empty throne
And there's no one around to let me know

Your angel guards have gathered in hoards
Could you tell me, tell me whose army's marching over the city walls?

Whose army, whose army, whose army

Look around, the people on the ground have gone to the clouds
The beautiful and the proud have taken all their power up the clouds

Whose army?

Standing on the wall of the last surviving tower
I'm holding out my hand through the barrier
Saying who was it sent you, whom do you obey
And the general looks up at me
He says:
Alll of this was for you
We've done what you told us to do
You know whose army's marching over the city wall?

Whose army
Track Name: What We Shared
No parade
No design
No masquerade
Only clouds across the sun
Come and go the same for anyone

It was only what we shared
It was only what we shared

All our cares
All the words we've spoken to the empty air
How we choose what we find
When we read between eachother's lines

It was only what we shared
It was only what we shared

Nothing like an answer, nothing like a lie
Just the smile you always save for a stranger's eyes
I never would have seen it, never could have known
You would gather all the moments and take them home
Any time at all you feel you're gonna fall
Better stay, better stay this side of the wall
It was nothing like an omen, nothing like a vow
Just let it go now, let it go now

It was only what we shared
It was only what we shared
Track Name: Wolf in the Manger
High high heels and a velveteen coat
And those choke chain diamonds that stick in my throat
It's a little girl's dream...
And they scream!

So I tried to be what you asked me to be
But I never had my heart in the part you wrote for me
Mother, father, I don't wanna dance any longer

If you struggle my dear then the kill is only sweeter still
If you struggle my dear then the kill is only sweeter still
Ruler, master, I can't do the dance any faster
Father, redeemer, saviour, forgive me for all my behaviour

If you struggle my dear then the kill is only sweeter still
If you struggle my dear then the kill is only sweeter still
Sister, brother, I fear that I've just met my lover
And he's just another stranger
He's just one more wolf in the manger

Just one more wolf in the manger
Hear those pretty girls scream
He's just one more wolf in the manger

Just one more wolf in the manger
Just one more wolf

Hear those pretty girls scream
Hear those pretty girls scream
Track Name: If the Wind Agrees
January landed with the promise of a thaw
But it came in empty handed like a beggar to my door
I'm gonna throw my stones over the weir
There's no one home, sorry my dear
I don't understand it, I'm afraid of what I want

Everything's free if the wind agrees, the wind agrees
Everything's free

Come down from your throne cos you're all on your own
Time to lay down and own the bed you've made
If you're really sure that you've won your war
Then why won't you lower the blade
If you really feel that your god's not real
They why are you still so afraid?

Everything's free if the wind agrees, the wind agrees
Everything's free

February landed with the litter on the lawn
The empty propaganda of a spring that will never be born

Everything's free if the wind agrees, the wind agrees
Everything's free
Track Name: The Nightjar
Nightjar calls out the numbers of the days
And the children rise from the wreckage of the plane
And in the long grass bruised bruised by the storm
They sleep in open arms

Memories flee down the years and the days
With sweet release like birds from a cage
And old men stand in the darkening hall
And wait for the nightjar's call

The rumours will fly til the engines die
And the sky burns away
The wolf in disguise with a grandmother's eyes
Plays the same old games

Nightjar calls out the numbers of the days
For the fools and kings who will never be again
So take your place in line against the wall
And wait for the nightjar's call

A snow white feather for your bravery
A broken arrow of desire
A silver medal for your memories
And a house on fire

A snow white lily for your tragedy
A broken arrow of desire
The nightjar will call you from your reverie
And lead you on dancing

On and on to an ancient rhythm
Track Name: The Young and the Hungry
Dark desert sands
The spell of an imaginary land
The fever of the fray replay from man to man
Hard light of day and the children with the wind in their sails
Pray for every wave to take them further away

Oh don't, don't forget your own
There's no way home

Those left behind have been waiting for an answer in the sky
But angels never cry
Their eyes are made of stone
And the fire in my veins
Is enough to send the world up in flames
But it always seems to fade when the day meets the sun

Oh don't, don't forget your own
Don't, don't forget your own
The young and the hungry
Unheeding, unholy
The world is soul-weary
Sleepwalking, god[-fearing

Don't, don't forget your own
There's no way home
Track Name: She of Little Faith
She of little faith
Keep your fingers crossed in case the ladder breaks
You always say there's no escape
You're never really safe from everyone's mistakes
The whole human race

She of little faith
Keeping one eye on the fire escape
The clouds go by and the soul train shivers on its rails
The squirrels chase their tails in open space

Don't believe the man in grey
He only ever plays to win
I'm still waiting for the day
She turns round to me and says
We may need a miracle

She of little faith
Will you believe me when I say it's not too late
There's so much at stake
And don't believe a word they say
The sinners and the strays
Will find their way

Don't believe the man in grey
He only ever plays to win
Don't go hiding in the shade
All of this will fade my friend

We may need a miracle
