Track Name: Escape The Cage
Sometimes, when these walls
And these streets leave me seeing red
I go for lower greens and higher blues
With pedals under my feet
Cuz these wheels take me places
the open air displaces
the claustrophobic qualities of home

But When I start to think too much
And when these wheels can't take me far enough
Before these stagnant lives
Can drag me down to their level
I...

Look up to watch the world turn
Lower my eyes a blade of grass moves
From another needle in the haystack
Of the earth I scream at the sky
This town is just the beginning of it all
Don't let it embody my life

I've had enough of places
Where dull grey shapes fit in matching spaces
The feeling is leaving
This town is deceiving

But When I start to think too much
And when these wheels can't take me far enough
Before these stagnant lives
Can drag me down to their level
I...

Look up to watch the world turn
Lower my eyes a blade of grass moves
From another needle in the haystack
Of the earth I scream at the sky
This town is just the beginning of it all
Don't let it embody my life
Track Name: Falling
Look in my eyes
Can you see the pain you've caused
Where does this end?
You lied through your teeth
As you shot me to the ground
Where does this end?

Did I mean a thing to you?
Broken on the floor
You've nothing more to give me
But I'm begging you for more
When you said you loved him
Tell him you told me that too

Falling through my fantasies
Falling through the skies
Falling through eternity
You're passing me by
You're holding me back
Cutting me down
Bleeding me dry
And I'm slipping through the cracks
Where does this end?

You told me everything was perfect
You would be the one for me
Where does this end?
But you threw it all away
Now you mean nothing to me
Where does this end?

Did I mean a thing to you?
Broken on the floor
You've nothing more to give me
But I'm begging you for more
When you said you loved him
Tell him you told me that too

Falling through my fantasies
Falling through the skies
Falling through eternity
You're passing me by
You're holding me back
Cutting me down
Bleeding me dry
And I'm slipping through the cracks
Where does this end?
Track Name: Ropes
Sweetheart
I bet you wish you knew a little bit more
About letting go
Sit tight I'm going to show you a thing or two
I'm going to show you the ropes
I'm going to show you

Picture the scene
He's got his hands on her hips
They're not taking it slow
He's got her biting her lips
We all know where this one ends
So wise up now honey
And don't let him pretend that he's yours

Sit tight, I'm going to show you the ropes

No, no don't listen to a word that he says
A liar's always a liar when he's lying in her bed
You know he's no good for you

Picture the scene
He's got his hands on her hips
They're not taking it slow
He's got her biting her lips
We all know where this one ends
So wise up now honey
And don't let him pretend that he's yours

Sit tight, I'm going to show you the ropes

You know he's no good for you
He's no good for you
Track Name: Firehead
There is a fire in my head
All my actions of late only feed it further
Behind my eyes it burns
Help me before it returns
When it does
Will my face turn to ash?
How long, how long until
Those that love me still
Can't take the heat and leave?

The lines that make up these walls are fading
I trace the trails, sedated
as the light falls beyond my vision

No more can this wait
Could it be too late?...

There is a fire in your heads
I want to put it out
But I cry only gasoline
For how difficult this has been
I'm sorry...

No more can this wait
Could it be too late?...
Track Name: Heart Blazing
Close the door behind you girl
Take the time to lock it
Because you never know who might follow you home
There's a shadow that marks your end
It's spreading across the floor
As I emerge from behind the door
I think we both know why I'm here
And the events that fuelled this fire are perfectly clear
In my mind and yours
My tiger revenge it seethes and it roars

So it's come to this
Girl you'll be sorely missed

I have not the words
Or the sympathy
To stop this blazing spirit in me
Even the world below and abused
Is left injured and bemused by you
Now I know what to do

Even with my intentions tonight
Emotions pull at my resolve they're hard to fight
Because we all leave a better part of ourselves
When we remove someone from our lives
I don't think I know why I'm here
I should have never let you in I fear
But when you open wounds with that smile of yours
My tiger revenge it returns and it roars

So it's come to this
Girl you'll be sorely missed

I have not the words
Or the sympathy
To stop this blazing spirit in me
Even the world below and abused
Is left injured and bemused by you
Now I know what to do...
