Track Name: Where The Devil Sleeps
I thought I'd wish you back
I cast a cold blooded spell
My pennies burned in my hand
And in their thousands they fell

You couldn't break
You shouldn't take it
You wouldn't show your tell
If worship's a sin
The way that you wear your skin
I'll be the first to brave hell

I cast a cold blooded spell

I'm a fool for lost beliefs
I'm a fool for lost beliefs
I come down to where the devil sleeps
I break down upon the beast and weep

Flash floods above
Rain down on us
And you hail the curse
To end all trust

The edges blur

I was lost till you graced me
I've been lost since I was seventeen
This facade has set my conquests free
And I won't bow down at the rainman's feet


Flash floods above
Rain down on us
And you hail the curse
To lift me up

Track Name: Lone Rose
She runs with hell, she destroys me with her eyes closed
I want to kill her, I want to kill my lone rose
So when I find her in fashion’s ugly trend
They say the hottest love has the coldest end
I’ll make it her end

Well it used to be a case of texting you to find out
The symbol of your being or the farewells of your mind
But the streets are my narcotics, the fields my only truth
In this cycle of a lonely day, round and round, I think...
I think I need you
But I feel older than I should, and Jesus knows
I can’t even picture my own future anymore
And I hate time - it passes faster than it should
So in my mind I’m just fifteen with vivid dreams and clean enthusiasm
And I need love

You walk in beauty like the night of cloudless climbs and starry skies
And I know, I know
Cause I can see God in your eyes and all that’s best of dark and bright
Oh, yeah
So I get up out of my car, take the hose from the exhaust and play guitar
Until I smile - yeah, I’m there for while
I’ve escaped again so close, so close but I’ll never let you know just how far
No I’ll never let you know baby

This valley of divine, with you and me stood by a lemon tree

From alpha to delta, through fury and pain
If love’s suppose to be shelter, I think I’ll walk in the rain
Oh, I think I’ll walk in rain, oh, I think I’ll walk in rain
I prefer to be drenched anyway

They promised so much
Track Name: 17 Days (Stripped)
The years slip by like radio waves
My past plays out like an old arcade
Time is the fire in which we burn
It’s what I want most, but what I use worst

I’m 17, but I won’t be for long
And if you’re 17 and you’re hearing this song
In 2018
In 2020
In 3013
You’ll know the feeling
This isn’t timeless
You will never be here again

But I feel my life coming, driving my dreams
I want to capture this moment, preserve it in reams
Slow down my blood flow, look up to the sky
Throw up a sun ray, then help shield my eyes
And I’ll keep track of white lies

But I love wishing
Oh yeah I love knowing that the best is the come
I said there’s no magic
I said there’s no magic that could rival this one
And I’m oh, so happy
Yeah I’m so happy that I’m who I should be
And the world is spinning
Yeah, the world is spinning to the rhythm of me.
Track Name: The Ninth Wave
Stranded and spent, brought to our knees
Washed and cut to splintered debris
Crashing tides of a crashing sea
Then the ninth wave came down on me

And everybody said;
Oh I can't believe
Sun of ochre, scarlet leaves
Sparkled shores on Christmas eve
Then the ninth wave came down on me

I saw your face, lost in the haze
Stranded and spent for 17 days
I found you under palm trees shade
Waiting for Apocolade


And everybody said;
Oh I can't believe
Sun of ochre, scarlet leaves
Sparkled shores on Christmas eve
Then the ninth wave came down on me
