Track Name: Film Noir
I'll live my life in shades of monochrome
Walking in the rain
Like an old movie
The city lights distorted in the water
And downpour like percussion
And excess imagination

He's gone
He's gone
Track Name: Stolen Future
They tell us how to think & how to feel
Plan your life out, you're young & you're full of zeal
Every last second, down to your meals
Don't want your buzz words or your appeal

You must know what you wanna do
Have your life planned out till you're 82
You must know what you wanna do
You must know what you wanna do

We're your guinea pigs and we don't approve
We're your guinea pigs and we don't approve
We're your guinea pigs and we don't approve
You must know what you wanna do

You must know what you wanna do
Have your life planned out till you're 82
You must know what you wanna do
You must know what you wanna do
Track Name: The World Drops Dead
Trying to find some sort of meaning
Behind the sorrow that's left
What we don't realise
Is that peace has no end

An old tortured poet
or an addict with a gun
We make them beautiful for the rest of the world
Life is hard to picture
Because nobody has a clue

And now I know it's all a joke
A failed romance, an awkward hope
We cling on yet our needs aren't met

Contentment is not a virtue
Contentment is fake
Building barriers to islands
Leaving them, it's too late
Customs, bullets and wire
A mad world under fire
We are fighting each other
and the politicians win
The sun slips through my fingers
So weightlessly I sigh

And the fish are drowning
And the fish are drowning

And now I know it's all a joke
A failed romance, an awkward hope
We cling on yet our needs aren't met
