Track Name: Spun
I spy a set up, ain't nothing but a fix
You can set your trap, and you can get your kicks
You invite me in, to your woven web
Can’t move my wings, can’t move my legs
Stuck! Fucked!
Silent assassin, glistening in the sun
Whirlpool vortex, spinning around
Can’t move, can’t scream, even if I try
You pegged me only to, hang me out to dry
Stuck! Fucked!
Track Name: Say Never
I can still remember there was this one time I was driving with you
There was a song by Prince on the radio and I sang two lines in tune
I think we were both equally surprised
When you said to me ‘that sounded alright’
I guess it’s not something I ever expected to hear you say
Yeah I guess every dog has it’s day
But still I can’t get no satisfaction
No no no, I can’t even get a reaction
It’s like there’s no interaction
And we’re slowly running out of traction
But it’s not too late, we can still turn this around
Whatever we have lost can still be found
Never say never say never
Just gotta be prepared to look together
Track Name: Marrakech
You better watch your feet - there's snakes in the street
Sandstorms a-brewing - time to get moving
Sahara's a long way out - 15 hours back to Taghazout
Dog tired so sick feeling bad - blood orange bile in the riad
Guess the tagine chicken wasn't that fresh - Gotta get outta Marrakesh
Goats in the trees - Essouira breeze
Cool atlantic air - after the crumby bus-station in Agadir
Cobra's with mouths sewn closed - a little too long on Atlas mountain roads
Sifting through the Dades Valley - in our own film in Ouarzazate
Nobodies even tried selling me hash - gotta get outta Marrakesh
Track Name: Rhetorical Hollow
Shall we start at the beginning, but never cross the finish line
Stumble a little along the way, while we're running out of time
Yeah shall we start at the beginning, or shall we begin at the start
Do you know the difference, can you even tell the two apart
These are the answers that struck me today
I haven't got the answers but the questions still stay
These are the questions that won't go away
I haven't got the answers coming today
Well how late is too late, and how far is too far
How much is too much, and how little til it's sub par
Shall we just laugh it off, treat it as a joke
Or shall we watch it burn, admire the patterns of smoke
These are the answers that struck me today
I haven't got the answers but the questions still stay
These are the questions that won't go away
I haven't got the answers coming today
Shall we consider our options, take it seriously
Ahhhh, think things through, and push the boundaries
Or is it better we walk away, is it better we left it
Just exactly how much, is too much fucking effort
These are the answers that struck me today
I haven't got the answers but the questions still stay
These are the questions that won't go away
I haven't got the answers coming today
