Track Name: Heavy Tree (Live)
Times are old, grey in your eyes, grey in your eyes,
And all those days, we'd run for our lives, run for our lives,
Seems to me, we didn't try, we didn't try.

You Heavy Tree,
You Endless Flame,
You Spinning Wheel,
You...

The distant lines, no eye can see, no eye can see,
Until the rain, highlights the seam, highlights the seam,
The cracks we hate, are chasing us down, chasing us down.

You Heavy Tree,
You Endless Flame,
You Spinning Wheel,
You...

You Heavy Tree, weeping willow of the mid-west county,
You Endless Flame, until I go out and amidst the unseen,
You Spinning Wheel, weaving the web, leaving the web.

And now the years grow slowly,
Lonely seed finds it's stem,
Trust in time to pay it's due,
Dew that drops helps the living.

You Heavy Tree, weeping willow of the mid-west county,
You Endless Flame, until I go out and amidst the unseen,
You Spinning Wheel, weaving the web, leaving the web.
Track Name: Mother City
Chase the streets to the fields,
Form the scent of relief,
Build to steal from romance,
Built to steel, start again.

Saw a thousand horses running,
Thought I saw him laughing,
Saw a thousand horses running,
Breaking through the traffic.

Trace the faults, and the stains,
Shot for shot, frame for frame,
It's all the same, for what it's worth,
Mother City, Mother Earth.
Track Name: I Love You, Now Leave
For you to stay for me,
Oh the shame you'd feel,
If you stick to what you know,
Oh your bones will share,
What your mouth, refuses to let go.

In Winter your arms, wild like the sun,
In Summer we'll name clouds and we'll name our children,
You should go now,
You should go now,
You should go now,
And leave, leave.

Did you find a place to rest,
Your weary eyes? (Are they open now?)
Can we see the world in hand,
And grow weary eyed (side by side)?

In Winter your arms, wild like the sun,
In Summer we'll name clouds, and we'll name our children,
A long time from now, we'll think of the young,
'Til then I will whisper, from my heart, from my lungs,
You should go now,
You should go now,
You should go now,
And leave, leave.
Track Name: Holes in Your New Shoes
Grey hair in my way,
Yes I am, the great pretender,
Who said I'm to blame,
For this static surrender?

Creased sheets on my bed,
You will cover with this throw,
Creaking stairs that you tread,
I'm the oldest man I know,
I'm the oldest man...

(I know) I stayed at home whilst you,
Turned all the colours black and blue,
Old man, there's holes in your new shoes,
There's holes in your new shoes.

Brick wall turned to clay,
You deny, the great pretender,
No words I can say,
For this static surrender.

"No need to always walk a straight line",
You say I'm looking for a green light, at a stop sign,
"No need to walk so straight and narrow",
I'm the oldest man I know,
I'm the oldest man I know.

(I know) I stayed at home whilst you,
Turned all the colours black and blue,
Old man, there's holes in your new shoes,
There's holes in your new shoes.
