Track Name: Mother love - Deerswim - It's a start
It’s a start

I’ll let you into my heart
If you can find me in the dark
I shine but I’m made of tin
Lots of empty space within

I need somebody, you need someone
If there’s a lesson to read up on it’s
Open your heart, it’s a start…

I’m the centre of my mess
Cleaning up is common sense
The reigning in of my excess
Goes against all evidence

I need somebody, you need someone
Hang all the grammar, it really don’t matter
How this comes to pass, It’s the start…

Cry ballistic over the love on the rise, on the tide
My crimes are listed, open me up, look inside
Choose a wire, be careful which you cut.
Track Name: Come to me - ECG - The dust
Drive your moped across the sea (Come to me)

Come to me,
oh lay your body down
the island is sleeping
but I’m here keeping it real
Come to me
Oh let me hear the sound
the click of the engine
that’s building the tension I feel

Come to me
I’m helpless I declare
I’m hooked on this feeling of love
and I’m reeling I swear
Come to me
Oh trade your set ‘o wheels
for something the ocean
can set forth in motion for real

Throw your chemistry
Throw your chemistry in with mine
Drop your anchor in place and time
Drive your moped across the sea to be with me

The Dust

I’m the one to say what you mean to me
You can only choose how to feel
Take away your words and you’re hard to read
Take away your love and I’m lost

On the dust…
the dust
the dust
the dust

Summer dialect in for a warmer clime
Autumn finds me walking on steam
Drying out my lust over winter coals
Breaking out in sweat when I dream

Of the dust
the dust
the dust
the dust

Where do you get off coming home alone?
Don’t you know that two’s company?

In the dust…
Track Name: I give to you - Middlepoint - You can't help what you turn into
I give to you

The way I cry when I'm in confusion
I give to you, I give to you...
My bad decisions & how I drew them
I give to you, I give to you...
My lower jaw and my best delusion
I give to you, I give to you...
All the above and my expectation
I give to you, I give to you...

So don't go saying that I never gave you nothing
& count your blessings it was all I had.
So don't come around here
saying that all you got from me was broken
I'd be thankful it was all I had

The way I push 'till i'm an intrusion
I give to you, I give to you...
My disappointment I wasn't chosen
I give to you, I give to you...
My lower jaw and my best delusion
I give to you, I give to you...
All the above and my expectation
I give to you, I give to you...

--------------

You can’t help what you turn into
it’ll happen anyway
Moved my logic to my ribcage
Then I moved it back again
Though the effect was liberating
and the event cause much a stir

You can’t help what you
help what you
help what you turn into…

Got experiments and controls
sign on the door says ‘stay away’
I’m Looking into forms of protein
To lend my mind a certain sway
I’m closing in on metamorphosis
to chase the night away

You can’t help what you
help what you
help what you turn into…

You can’t help what you turn into
You will never have a say
If your identity defeats you
In a Clark Kent sort of way
then make sure that where you’re going
there’s a phonebox on the way

You can’t help what you
help what you
help what you turn into…
Track Name: Neurovision - The tree - Out of my reach
The tree

You thought you were taking a different road
But it all leads you here in the end

So reach out
Climb up
Branch out
Sit down
Look around
Take it in
Let go
Fall out

do it again…

Out of my reach

Summer’s child is fair and wild
owns the sun, tells the time
Sets in the west
But why I confess
is over my head

Multiples of twos and threes
Newton’s laws and apple trees
These I can teach
But all that you need
Is out of my reach
