Track Name: The Love Process
You can cancel it at anytime
But a refund won't be due
In the meantime a reminder's in the mail for you
For the process isn't optional
You're an experiment for free
Nominated as a delegate by nobody

So please confirm your attendance to the love process
The love process has already begun

Put your ID on and join the room
And introduce yourself
Maybe talk about your aspiration and your wealth
If the programme for the day concludes
Ahead of schedule
You'll be looking to get out as soon as possible

But you can't cancel your subscription to the love process
The love process has already begun
Track Name: Evil Between The Grooves
There’s a humming in my hands I can hardly believe
And a buzz of the static as it draws from the sleeve
There’s a crackle and hiss as the needle drops down
I’m hypnotised by the label as the circle spins round
I hear evil between the grooves
I hear evil between the grooves
I sense evil beneath the movement on my stereo

Scared to put the headphones close to my ears
There’s a tolling of a bell and it gives me the fear
The first chord crashes in and it blows me away
But the figure on the gatefold insists that I stay
I hear evil between the grooves
I hear evil between the grooves
I sense evil beneath the movement on my stereo
Track Name: Won't See Me Around
When you wake up and your heartbeat is the only lonely sound
Then you'll know that you won't see me around again
And it won't take long to figure out why love is leaving town
And you'll know that you won't see me around

Your head is spinning while your thoughts cave in on you
'Cos you can't take back all of those rotten things you do
And you do

You'll wish I was here beside you like your shadow on the ground
But you know that you won't see me around

Your head is spinning while your thoughts cave in on you
'Cos you can't take back all of those rotten things you do

And you will talk of me to anyone who hears you
Speaking my name 'cos I'm no longer with you now
And you'll cry out loud

When you wake up and your heartbeat is the only lonely sound
You'll think twice before you let somebody down again
And it won't take long to figure out why love is leaving town
And you'll know that you won't see me around
Track Name: Freak Control
Oh your mind's been blindsided by your freak control
First you gain the world then you lose your soul
Pawns in line, set to topple when you've lost the game
Drawing a line through everybody's name

Capital gain punctuates every move
Freak control
Neon lights spelling your name nice and big
Freak control

All your words calculated never ever to reveal
All the motivations you conceal
Poised to run the moment you're discovered for your dirty lies
Collateral damage on route to the prize

Stakes are high at everyone else's expense
Freak control
Neon lights spelling your name nice and big
Freak control

Oh your mind's been blindsided by your freak control
Blindsided by your freak control
Blindsided by your freak control
Track Name: Full Smit
I walked in here like the laughing cavalier
Now in hot under my ruffle and I'm looking redder than a tomato
I need a trick up my sleeve 'cos you're out of my league
If there's a practical solution then you can tell me something I don't know

You got me staring like a half-wit
The room is blinding but it's half-lit
My knees are knocking and my head's in a spin
You got me full-smit
Full-smit
Full-smit
And everybody knows

You're determined to drift from the line of best fit
It's no use acting like I don't give a shit because you know what I'm after
If the world is a stage then the words on the page
Are only fit to be delivered by fools unto a chorus of laughter

You got me staring like a half-wit
The room is blinding but it's half-lit
My knees are knocking and my head's in a spin
You got me full-smit
Full-smit
Full-smit
And everybody knows
Track Name: Silence Is Death-Ray
So who's at the door today?
I'm pretending that I'm not at home
Watching as they walk away
To be certain that they won't return
Silence is Death-Ray
And I can't escape
The day as it breaks
Beneath the table where I hide
So who's at the door today?
Track Name: Hard Luck Summer
Alone in the bee-loud glade
Thinking on the mess I've made
In a honey coloured haze
Is where we separated our ways

I'm low
A-glow
In a stupor of long-forgotten friends
In a hard luck summer again

I can hear my demons purr
As the long grass sways and stirs
Knowing I can't put things right
As my vision whites out in the light

No track
Leads back
I'm lost in the warm 'remember when'
In a hard luck summer again

Thoughts linger on as they burn like the sun
Track Name: Girl From The City
I know a girl who can't be dissuaded
She's new to the city and years away from jaded
She wont stand aside, you can see it in her eyes
A problem's just an opportunity disguised

Stood side by side
My world collides
With that girl from the city

Out on the platorm, onto the turnstiles
She moves to the beat of her heart with a half-smile
Disarming the world that's outside her earphones
She'll make it on her own, she'll make it own her own

One carriage wide
I have to follow tomorrow
To be by her side

Oceans of people keep us separated
Minions of morning heavily sedated
Maybe I'll catch her upon the way home

I want to be
Part of the world
Of that girl from the city
Track Name: I See You
You let your mask slip
For a moment you had me
I see you
You're telling me nothing
But showing me all and
I see you

You might have fooled the others
But you don't fool me

You play a mean game
To divide and to conquer
I see you
You preach without practice
Your words ring so hollow
I see you

You might have fooled the others
But you don't fool me

You hide in plain sight with the wreckage
You're a villain who smiles at the world

You might have fooled the others
But you don't fool me

You let your mask slip
For a moment you had me
I see you
