Track Name: Poppy White
Alone she falls out of bed
And brushes her teeth with last night's cigarette
And who's to say I don't care about
Your state of health and lack of wealth

The world keeps turning as it's done before
To her no changes on her door
Through sun and sunshine
The rain and pain
You know I'll always feel the same

There's a place in her mind
A darkened path that you will never find
There was a time once before
A carefree smile now gone for evermore

The world keeps turning as it's done before
To her no changes on her door
Through sun and sunshine
The rain and pain
You know I'll always feel the same

A little line every day
Keeps things numb
Keeps real life at bay
Falling apart at the seams
A voice from me to come and blow your dreams

The world keeps turning as it's done before
To her no changes on her door
Through sun and sunshine
The rain and pain
You know I'll always feel the same
Track Name: Distraction
Remember when you drove me to distraction
We followed the arrow in that direction
Towns with names that looked so weird on the map
Places and names just disappeared so fast
The trees flew past like the birds
Heading south for the winter

But it's all a game, now I know
I keep myself straight
Accept everything, I don't think too hard
About things which may never happen
About things which may never happen

Distraction - you drove me away
Distraction - to fields of hay
Distraction - I made up my mind

Where are the places I feel at home
I look around - there are none
Just one long line of moving cars
They got direction but they don't know where they are

Make me frightened - heighten my fear
Got to get me out of here

But its all a game, now I know
I keep myself straight
Accept everything, I don't think too hard
About things which may never happen
About things which may never happen

Distraction - you drove me away
Distraction - to fields of hay
Distraction - I made up my mind

I don't belong to a world whose song
Is a battered old wreck from a time long gone
Where the race to compete
Is the rule and the law
I can't believe that had gone on before

I never realised what a difference a choice
Would make to a man with a soul and no voice
But these things may never happen
But these things may never happen
Track Name: Dead and Gone
I stay in at night and worry about you
Follow my mind and dream about two
I've known you for such a long time
I wonder if I'll ever get over you

Why do I feel this way after so long
It should have been buried, dead and gone
I'm feeling sorry for myself
And I want to get over you

The longest road I ever walked
Between the paths of right and wrong
Deliver to me everything I want

I feel much better since we talked things through
The sadness is still there but what can I do
I had so much loving to give you
I wonder if I'll ever get over you

The longest road I ever walked
Between the paths of right and wrong
Deliver to me everything I want

The longest road I ever walked
Between the paths of right and wrong
Deliver to me everything I want

Deliver to me everything I want
Deliver to me everything I want
Deliver to me everything I want
Deliver to me everything I want
Track Name: Rain
My God you said it's crumbling to bits
It's falling apart it's a party split and
Don't waste your breathe, I know their lies
With the ideal plan for the idle rich and
They've taken away the community spirit
Don't drop your head, hold it high

It's a grabbing hand that gets what it takes
From a weakened, fallen, barren state and
We know the truth can cut through lies
Don't be taken in by the smile on his face
Oh the clever words to keep you in your place
Don't step out of line, not worth your time

Rain - rain on down, rain on me, rain on me
Rain - rain on down, rain on me, rain on me

My God you said it's crumbling to bits
It's falling apart it's a party split and
Don't waste your breathe, I know their lies
With the ideal plan for the idle rich and
They've taken away the community spirit
Don't drop your head, hold it high

Rain - rain on down, rain on me, rain on me
Rain - rain on down, rain on me, rain on me

Rain on me
Rain on me
Rain on me
Rain on me
Rain on me
Rain on me
