Track Name: Neurotic Wreck and Crystal Eyes - Rain Down
Each man hurts the things he loves
Stare at the ruins you rise above
Soar above the crumbling spires
The burned out stares and burning tyres
I could show you how to dream
My heart here on my sleeve it screams
These aren't the days to waste away
These aren't the days to waste away

(We kiss in the rain)

Hear it starting to rain
And I can't take my eyes off you
There's no need for names
And I can't take my eyes off you
There's no need for shame
And I can't take my eyes off you
It's starting to rain
And I can't take my eyes off you

Shyness equals dying egos
Crowded rooms and grinding teeth
Observe the past as far as we go
Brainwashed beyond all belief
Hold my hand too long in flame
Destroy the value of my name
But that's the nature of the game
These aren't the days to waste away

Hear it starting to rain
And I can't take my eyes off you
There's no need for names
And I can't take my eyes off you
There's no need for shame
And I can't take my eyes off you
It's starting to rain
And I can't take my eyes off you
Track Name: Night Moves
Look down through the glass
Surprised when I see
Two haunted eyes staring straight back at me
Look said "I'll show you pain and I'll show you loss
Think you got what you want?
Here you are. Here's the cost"
Should never fall for someone like me
But push came to shove and you were too blind to see
I begged you not to fall for someone like me

Now I'll set you free

Since my baby left I've had the mourning sickness
The days blur together,
Man I'm bored witless
I'm alone, and that ain't right
Proves push come to shove
I should be practising my
Night Moves

Monochrome preferably
A room almost empty
Reality hits I'm questioning
Whether this was meant to be
Bassline sends me reeling
Reeling from the blowback
Which one of us is Stewart,
Which one of us is Novak?

Not waving, drowning
Thought I was sinking
But I'm swimming
The conditions I went down in
Well, I'm quite surprised I'm winning
When reality hits with a sickening crash
Shaken now I'm questioning
How I could be so rash

Since my baby left I've had the mourning sickness
The days blur together,
Man I'm bored witless
I'm alone, and that ain't right
Proves push come to shove
I should be practising my
Night Moves
Track Name: Dazed Marrrow Featuring Dan Wreck - Night Out
Call your girlfriend
Call your boyfriend
Tell 'em you're not coming home tonight
Because you're mine now
And they could never live up to me

Now every passing glance is sexualised
A pointless night out so conceptualised
There's still a hint of laughter left in your eyes
But don't be surprised if that joy it dies
And it's a well known fact we only want the ones
We have absolutely no chance with
And it's a surefire sign you're getting drunk
If I'm anything but unattractive
Some drink so that they can forget
But you drink to remember
Something you can't QUITE forget
Tinged with regret
Around December
Do you want to talk about it?

When the lights flicker out tonight
Hold on, don't let me go
Our blank future is still so bright
Hold on, don't let me go
Tonight

Now every passing stranger's glance is sexualised
This time it's men's turn to be objectified
There's still a hint of laughter left in your eyes
But don't be surprised
If that joy it dies
Stand together we can come as a unified whole
All I want is your heart all I want is your soul
All I want is something to keep me occupied
When I'm all alone
You're not alone
Say "You're alone"
Track Name: Someone New
If its not wrong why does it feel so wrong
I stalk like Withnail in the park
The final curtain fraught swansong
A final leap into the dark
Always the taste of someone new
Mouthwash and Tom Waits
Always that certain someone who
Is lurking by the gates

We always warned you

If its not wrong why do I feel this way
Never far from danger
I don't know for certain if I can trust
This tall handsome stranger
Always the taste of someone new
Mouthwash and Tom Waits
Always that certain someone who
Can look you in the face and say

I always warned you
We always warned you
Track Name: Slow Rise
I've got a slow rising notion
And I just cannot be found
I'm but a drop in the ocean
The ocean of sound
I want to scream to the heavens
But the heavens aren't real
How I envy your faith
How I envy your zeal

(And I keep coming over
Can I keep coming over?)

In a world scarred by greed and corruption
The mind is a weapon of mass destruction
The pace slows and drags to fade in slow motion
Gripped in a second by a slow rising notion

(It keeps spilling over)

I've got a slow rising notion
And I just don't know how I feel
I'm full of foreign emotions
Oh lord oh could you be real
(And I keep spilling over)
I want to scream from the rooftops
I want to tell you my plans
I want to tell you all my schemes
How they all went out of hand

And I keep coming over
Track Name: Without You
I'm so tired of playing,
Pretending that you're staying
When you know just what that'd mean to me
Tired of lying, sick of crying
You know what the answer seems to be
Or I could throw it all away
I think we both knew this would come some day

A stab in the dark at a work of art
Beyond all reason I need you
Another wreck among the dreck
I didn't mean to mislead you
When I said I didn't need you
I was bluffing
Without you I'm nothing
Without you

Maybe you'll be lonely
But I've got to find my own way
Even if its painful
One day I decided I was sick of being derided
But I'm still on the side of the angels
And you just sigh and leave the room
You best move over, give me some room

A stab in the dark at a work of art
Beyond all reason I need you
Another wreck among the dreck
I didn't mean to mislead you
When I said I didn't need you
I was bluffing
Without you I'm nothing
Without you
Track Name: Tired of Me
Weightless
Let's wait and see
I'm tired of you
And I'm tired of me
Panic
Now I can't sleep
I'm tired of this
And I'm in too deep

The colours in her eyes
Paint the beach
How I wish that we could stay
It's always quick
The moment dies
How I long for yesterday

Wasted
Let's wait and see
I'm tired of you
and I'm trying to sleep
Panic
Fell in too deep
I'm tired of you
Won't you let me keep...

The panic in her eyes
Paints the beach
How I wish they'd let us stay
It's always quick
The moment dies

How I long for yesterday
The colour in her eyes
Paints the beach
And she wishes she could stay
It's always quick
The moment it dies
And it's always out of reach
Track Name: Tear Tape
(Train Announcer Voice - Next stop St Helens central)

For each song I selected
Think of all the great ones I rejected
Nick Cave ends
Eject it
I use the words of better artists
To give you a message
From when you leave
To when you get home
I live and breathe with you
In your headphones

Strobing lights and 909 snares
It'll be alright - I care
And my tape just lies there
As we escape in the frozen night air
And tonight just stretches on and on
And in the morning light I might be gone
Down here hyperbole is rife
But these songs they saved my life
Down here hyperbole is rife
But if we sing along we might just survive
Down here everything is wrong
All night I listen to these songs
Down here hyperbole is rife
But these're the songs that saved our lives
