Track Name: Good Hustle
Sit up straight when you’re walking on the water
Light a fire in the sand for you
Come alive when I see you walking over
Come alive when you tell me to

We could kill anyone who ever hurt you
We could take them one by one
Make a list and keep it in your pocket
I don’t mind living on the run

Take a swim in the chlorinated water
Let your hair dry in the sun
Come alive when you hear the motor humming
I don’t mind living on the run
Track Name: Cold One
It was a cold one
It was the worst of
It was nothing at all
It was over my head

And I can’t believe it
And I don’t understand
When you talk about
The invisible hand

It was a bad call
We must have walked around for days
We were a lost cause
Caught in a strange place

Heaven above and whatever below
Who cares, we’ll go it alone

Heaven above and whatever below
Who cares, we’ll go it alone

And you’re falling apart
And you’re waking me up
And you’re driving to town
And you’re hitting the dirt
Track Name: Interceptor
The roads and railways are dying
But still we run the red horizon
We ride like Valkyries
To a war that no one’s left to see

Up against a wall we learned our lesson
Cut apart and put us back together
There are no monsters here
We are the only thing to fear

And I don’t wanna seeeeee
Another day out here

We are the darkness on the highway
All over every road and by-way
Like a shadow stretching out
Quiet and spread across the ground

There is a fire that lives inside me
Pull apart my ribs and see it burning
There are no monsters here
I am the only thing to fear

And I don’t wanna seeeeee
Another day out here
Track Name: Wells/Welles
Saturday it landed
In the grey atlantic
Read it in a paper on the train

Every night it crashes
Scattering the ashes
Paper trails going up in flames

There are no words
There are no words
For this

All the warning signs
And neon flashing lights
Couldn’t tell you what it’s going to do

When I was a child
Living in the wild
All you had to do was keep your cool

There are no words
There are no words
Track Name: Smiley Lewis & the Funeral Pyre
Big sky way out of the city
Hanging over passing cars
Shadows all around the bedroom
Knowing every inch by heart

Fingers working on a signal
Tapping at the window pane
Voices early in the morning
Begging for forgiveness in this dark age

Couldn’t read couldn’t write
Couldn’t make it through the night
But you know when he goes
You could make a little money

On the side in the town
Where the sin is all around
In the shadows in the dark
You could take it all apart

Big sky all around your shoulders
Falling out of aeroplanes
Finger pulling on a trigger
Feeling like a tidal wave

But you know when he comes
He will take you in his arms
There is room in his heart
But you don’t know where to start

So you beg for his love
But it never is enough
On your knees by his side
With his fingers in your mouth
In your mouth

In the end, in the end
When the world goes dark
When the sirens fade
And the cars are gone
When you’ve said it all and your lips are dry
I will throw my body at your feet and cry

In the end, in the end
When the world goes dark
When the sirens fade
And the cars are gone
When you’ve said it all and your lips are dry
I will throw my body at your feet and cry

When the world goes dark
When the world goes dark
When the world goes dark
When the world goes dark
Track Name: All My Time
Only when the ground shakes
And the sky splits in two
Will I realise that I spent the whole time
Waiting round for you

Coming home on the weekend
In the early morning light
Oh the sinking feeling that
Something wasn’t right

All the time in the world
All the time in the world
I’ve got all the time in the world
All the time in the world

All the times when I held both your
Hands upon my knees
All the times when I nursed you back
To health when you were weak

Baby I’m a race car
Since you let me go
I can see you shrinking
In my rear-view mirror

All the time in the world
All the time in the world
I’ve got all the time in the world
All the time in the world
