Track Name: Dead, Black
V1
Those dead black tunes
That ring from above
They make me think of
Forbidden love
A darker current
That runs right through
The heart of me
That’s split in two

CH
I need to be loved
I need to be held
The child in me lives
In an enclosed hell

(Instrumental)

V2
Tell me the parts you
Wanted to hide
Come with me now
You took long to find
Don’t be afraid
It’s ok to cry
It’s ok to hurt
It’s ok to lie

CH
I need to be loved
I need to be held
The child in me lives
In an enclosed hell
Track Name: Strange Day
Ohh its a strange day
ohh its a strange day

V1
Danger was held in the frost coated nights
its darkness held secrets uncovered in light
he taught me some things
that were old and wise
but the image i sought
was one filled with lies

ohh its a strange day
ohh its a strange day

(instrumental)

V2
His portrait hangs up in the dust coated hall
and I feel nothing, nothing at all
delusions were etched in the cracks on the floor
covered in ants and footprints no more

ohh strange day….
Track Name: Primroses
V1
what made you broken
what made you sad
i’m here to take you
led by the hand
what made you worried
what made you scream
your just a little child
with childish dreams

what made you lonely
what made you cry
i’m here to help you
understand why
what made you frown
in sleep and at rest
i’m here to help you
with this last test

CH
lovers and brothers
primroses all around
sisters and mothers
fathers all bowing down

V2
what made you break down
deep inside
your soul did part
then truly died
ill colour your life
with the hues of my day
and that little dark
is the last thing ill say

oh little dark one
don’t be scared
the primroses will lead you up there
oh little dark one
don’t be alarmed
they'll take care of you
cause you no harm

CH
lovers and brothers
primroses all around
sisters and mothers
fathers all bowing down (x2)
Track Name: Fortune Favours
V1
Watching from the outside
looking deep until its found
fortune favours some of us
and ignores those underground
corners keep the secrets
of a hundred different lives
is home to those with memories
and fortunes that collide

V2
for every evil theres a good
for every lie a bitter truth
fortune favours those of us
with patience and with proof
fortune favours those of us
who live amongst the slain
for those who live their lives
inside beds of broken men

CH
fortune favours me
and it favours you
it favours me
fortunes favour me
and it favours you
it favours me

V3
i used to play with the shadows
in the creases of the day
fortune favours those of us
who know our own way
look between the pages to see
whats written there
to know what lies ahead
i wont fail to get you there

fortune favours me
and it favours you
it favours me
fortune favours me
and it favours you it favours me

misfortune feeds on every little thing
every little thing
