The Pace 03:49
I woke up in the night and the sirens were screaming I shouldn't be dreaming; the day is in sight. It's the pace of this world that is bursting around me, it's leaving me breathless to reach for the light. For the sun has been missing, the hours are dark We're lost in the tempest and all out of spark The storm rages on but we still find no port Now daylight is fading and the nights are too short Is it true what they say that the future is failing, the paths we are trailing will lead us to black? I must work through the night that is falling around me, Must keep fires a’blazing and salvage this wreck

Grips 03:40
A fool's eye, bullseye, greed is on my breath My pain is not my problem, I'll deal with it in death The hands of golden promises came knocking at my door I was lifted up from underneath and dragged into a war It grips me – my body and my soul It grips me – puts flames into my skull Scorching, searing, escaping through my teeth My essence now connected to obsessions from beneath Only fools and dogs and lunatics have walked this way before I cast my common sense aside and leave it on the shore Piercing, preaching, I hear it and and I cry While the reaper's burning breath is feeding frenzy from the sky My bones turn into ashes while I'm hunting for the vault I can feel it while I ride into the blazing wind and salt It grips me – my body and my soul It grips me – puts flames into my skull

Donald's gone up the hill hard and hungry, Donald's come down the hill wild and angry; Donald will clear the gouk's nest cleverly, Here's to the king and Donald McGillavry. Come like a weighbauk, Donald McGillavry, Come like a weighbauk, Donald McGillavry, Balance them fair, and balance them cleverly: Off with the counterfeit, Donald McGillavry. Donald's come o'er the hill but his tether, man, As he were mad, or stang'd wi' an ether, man; When he comes back, there's some will look merrily: Here's to the king and to Donald McGillavry. Come like a weaver, Donald McGillavry, Come like a weaver, Donald McGillavry, Pack on your back, and elwand sae cleverly; Up with King James and Donald McGillavry. Donald's the callan that brooks nae tangleness; Whigging and prigging and a'newfangleness, They maun be gane: he winna be baukit, man: He will have justice, or faith he'll take it, man. Come like a cobler, Donald McGillavry, Come like a cobler, Donald McGillavry; Push about and in and out, thimble them cleverly, Up with King James and Donald McGillavry. Donald has foughten with rief and roguery; Donald had dinner with banes and beggary, So better it were for Whigs and Whiggery Meeting the devil than Donald McGillavry. Come like the devil, Donald McGillavry, Come like the devil, Donald McGillavry, Skelp them and scaud them that proved them unbritherly, Up with King James and Donald McGillavry.

I woke up this morning, the sun was raging high, my memories were a bit blurry The face in the mirror, its eyes they showed no life, its frown would put mothers to worry And suddenly I realise that I am the one to blame, If I could do this again would I still be the same? So I want to know where I came from I want to know where I was born Deliver me from my pain now Release me from this... The choice is mine to walk towards the light, but this maze feeds me too many fakes I used to think this life was much too broken for its fix, so I laughed away all its mistakes. But this makeshift answer can’t sound the demand, it is only bringing me pain If I could do this again would I still be the same? The storm in the future and the greys of the day make rhythms that drain me inside I fear my path is chosen, a cycle with no start that tells me my fire has died But I’m done ignoring the colour within I don’t want to play this game If I could do this again Would I still be the same So I want to know where I came from I want to know where I was born Deliver me from my pain now Release me from this... thorn

Never Fade 03:32
I see the face the sky has made I pray that it will never fade I see your tears, they shine up high But I'm not ready for the stars to die Looking up into the blue And I see what remains of you Dust and candles hurt my eyes They burn my spirit from the skies And still I cannot look away I cannot face the coming day Where every glow might cease to be And you'll forever be lost to me So I will beg and I will sing I will not suffer, I will cling To the radiance that holds your name The final remnants of my flame Take my voice and take my song It's all I have, for I'm not strong enough to walk this world alone Your beacon high has left me prone

This is How 05:19
Sinking down into the caverns of the whales On never trodden trails There's one way left to dive I've seen lights go out a million times before But now I feel the roar and the darkness of the hive I am swallowed by the tunnels of the earth So let's count on what I'm worth and hope that I'll survive A sight of burning desolation hurts my eyes This should be my demise But I'm gasping at the gate All the arrows want me sleeping at the stake But I feel like I'm awake My pain will have to wait So I will walk through the tunnels of the earth I'll be all that I'm worth I know that I'll survive For I found my own way into the fire And I'm still alive! Now to take the hand of death out of the blight And straight into the light Where we can have a dance Spin it 'round to be forgiven for my crime Of being here before my time I'm hoping for a chance To be spat back through the tunnels of the earth To be all that I'm worth To wake when I've survived To find my own way out of the fire I'm alive I have found the darkest little room In an hourglass beneath the dripping gloom I'm still alive I have seen my fate right from the start But I still feel the fire in my heart I'm still alive I will take the light of all the stars And shine it on my path beyond the bars I'm still alive I have years before this prison becomes home So I go up to find my place to roam

Captain Cray 03:31
There's gunpowder in his left eyeball Sparks and laughter, free for all He's crackling mad, but what a blast when sadness for no minute lasts! There's a dragon in his chest It roars and grins, gives no man rest It pulls the devil on by its tail and drags the wind into our sails! “Drive me insane, I want to feel madness” – All the way, to hell we'll row “Feed me salt and bring me thunder” – All the way, to hell we'll row “Ride the storm and hunt the Kraken” – All the way, to hell we'll row “Drive me insane, I want to feel madness!” – All the way, to hell we'll row His brow is naught but scars and patches and his coat is filled with matches This ship will be the death of me but not before he rules the sea! His shoes are worn, he's skin and bone He sleeps and shivers when he's alone but when that pace of life returns He dances a jig and the fire burns!

Witch Hunt 03:53
Shudder in my blackest eyes And lend an ear to crooked cries Douse the flame that burns your prey A witch I am, a witch I'll stay

The Pilgrim 03:58
I took the road into the night, I watched the day grow old I have no strength for one more fight, I’ll sink in waters cold Shed no tears for what is lost, I have not walked alone I'll gladly pay this cost to see how you have grown I throw my stones into the sea, Watch the water win, All the anger leaving me, All I was is sin But you said everything’s alright An eternal vow And as I breathe my final night I am ready now Kneel before the ocean, Surrender to the waves Count a star in the Pilgrim’s eyes For every life she saves

Rainy Road 06:58
I will blow out in this final storm And I will be taken by the flood For I will walk the dripping path And I will wither where I roam And down the rainy road we wash ourselves away The whispers sing me a melody The rhythms show me a world of grey Shades on the cobblestones Lead my old self astray
