Track Name: The Sun
The sun keeps on rising every day
but I'm not bound to do the same

accessing rooftops and wait out the rain
needless to say I am going astray

Count all the coins that we have tossed
inside the casinos of the lost
and out there's a forest and it grows
but how it can feed us no one knows

silvery moonlight and sketches of spain
all of those reasons no longer remain

Only a shackle apart, only a shackle apart
i should have known from the start
bear with this treadmill and tear all the shackles apart

The sun keeps on shining every day
but I'm so weary just the same

youth is a season that cannot be sold
truth is I'm ruthlessly growing so old

Only a shackle apart, only a shackle apart
i should have known from the start
bear with this treadmill and tear all the shackles apart
Track Name: Rubble
Everything is running out
trace of madness, shades of doubt
list of special things to do
and up on top well there was you

Living on a battlefield
prevent you coming past my shield
won't stop me from wearing out
and no one's ever showed me how

Now rubble and rubble and rubble yeah
rubble and rubble and rubble yeah
tell it to all the folks you know
and if they say why it's because i told you so

Emptied out the register
life lines they all seem to blur
deliver me from days of old
and save me from my hard-pressed soul

Now trouble and trouble and trouble yeah
troube, trouble, trouble yeah
tell it to all the folks you know
and if they say why it's because i told you so

On and on and on and on you go to no one knows
on and on and on and on where you go
to no one knows
Track Name: Stranded
Stranded downbended i descended from the heights that once held me
the passing of age brings signs of a beauty that's fading
in front lies the sea and now i agree completely
or maybe it's that true sailing is dead would you believe me?

Burglary nights petty thefts minor crimes now they bore me
finishing hands all crippled and bent from this nonsense
and by the the time I'm giving it all up for nothing
fills me with rage every line and every page it is aching

Stranded, downbended still not ended there's a force that drags me
sealing my fate still never ceases to amaze me
what you think of me well now I can see completely
bend back and forth i've always adored you sincerely

I'm stranded
I'm stranded
still not ended
I' stranded
still not ended, still not ended, still not ended
Track Name: The Big Parade
Where the cold wind blows
is where I am bound for
I place my soul
where it's no longer found sore

Put me in the middle of a giant boat
put me in the middle of a giant boat
and it goes

Where the waves grow high
and the urge is getting stronger now
we'll sing all night
on and on and on
we strive

Put us in the middle of a giant boat
put us in the middle of a giant boat
now we're stuck here in the middle
all we got is hope
stuck here in the middle
all we got is hope
and we go
and we go

There's a parade a parade a parade
and it knows endless love songs
there's a parade a parade a parade
and it knows endless lost songs

There's a parade a parade a parade
and it knows endless love songs
there's a parade a parade a parade
and it knows endless lost songs
about you
who are you
who are you

Where the hoarfrost falls
is where I cry out too
but there's no one at all
there's no one at all

Put us in the middle of a giant boat
put us in the middle of a giant boat
now we're stuck here in the middle
all we got is hope
stuck here in the middle
all we got is hope
and we go
and we go
and we go
Track Name: Grey Romantic
Under the table there's a wealthy life
wasn't quite able to get it right
guess I really don't know
guess I really don't know

Over the hillside and in the woods
off to the seashore only if I could
guess I really had to go
guess I really had to go

Tired and weary if once more we could
take from the honey that tasted so good
I guess the future's gonna show
yeah one day it's gotta show

Millions of people stifle their rage
mine is the temper that keeps me ablaze
yeah
yeah
yeah
yeah
Track Name: Travelling Menagerie
Locate this fear
then cast me out of here
beginning and end
were all so well spent
alive and a ghost
I know how it's all self imposed
the crooked remain
of years spent in vain round here

It's a travelling menagerie
to connect with your fantasies
of old time camaraderie
but none I can see

Willing to be
part of this mystery
stage the debut
was all I could do
alive and a ghost
I know how it's all self imposed
beginning and end
were all so well spent round here

It's a travelling menagerie
to connect with your fantasies
of old time camaraderie
it's a travelling menagerie
like a sad midnight jamboree
of old time camaraderie
of old time camaraderie
but none I can see
Track Name: Sleep
Growing tired day by day
I know you would be laughing
but your laughter soon decays
by all that it's confronting

So we cherish days of old
because the sky is weighing
hard upon us, restless soul
and all the time remaining

I know myself this way

Grown into a blind charade
so tired of all this guessing
but even if it's much too late
so be it, they're surpassing

through time and space
I'll last

The ticket is mine
the ticket is mine...
