Track Name: on a plateau
hear the kids go
on a plateau
hear the kids go
where the seeds grow
Track Name: all these lives collide
this town is caught on love loss pills
yeah we've got sadness and the thrills
Daniel's into living fast
and Lil would rather it all last

pool hopping at 3am
bike rides and adrenaline
can't do enough discovering
before the cold wind settles, settles in

a ghost from times that have gone by
is swimming in the air tonight
to crash a party she began
when she returned to native land

there's talk of keeping this alive
despite retreating to our hives
Magil wrote to say that she's in
and Danny boy I know you've always been

to think that all these lives collide
you see how all these lives collide
this town must have a secret side
to think that all these lives collide
Track Name: homeless gardeners
wear down our hands
for strangers' plans
we find a home
can't call our own

we're keeping our hearts somewhere they can glow
we know this loving labour is gonna grow
we're driving this rusty rig into the unknown
to pound and strum and yell in a microphone

we plant a seed
follow its lead
we can't stop here
under the heat

we lose a limb
the hardest thing
somehow we grow
under the snow

we're keeping our hearts somewhere they can glow
we know this loving labour is gonna grow
we're driving this rusty rig into the unknown
to pound and strum and yell in a microphone
Track Name: let's get carried away
it's 8 am
i'm in the drain
escaping through the pipes
and out to the lane
sleepwalking through
street of my youth
my L.A. lights
took me to new fleeting heights

i float on through my brain
i'm sheltered from the sane
let's get carried away

all of them fears
buzz in my ears
muzzle of bees
that i shake off through the years
you fed me words
a fated plunge
spoke to my heart
now i know where i can start

i float on through my brain
i'm sheltered from the sane
let's get carried away
Track Name: light up the night
transatlantic passage
making a new start
with a clay and paper entrance
she lay seeds in the park
those seeds turned into saplings
and never grew apart
they're sitting around listening
to your voice shaking hearts

oh, you'll never fade away
your voice is here to stay

it's a soaring sound that's all around
and it spreads like light
it's a soaring sound that can't be bound
and it fills up the night

a brick sits in my ribcage
like a womb for your light
it weighs down like an anchor
but it's nothing i can fight
well jenny says she felt it
it kept her up all night
so we're sitting around listening
to a voice that's oh so bright

oh, you'll never fade away
your voice is here to stay

it's a soaring sound that's all around
and it spreads like light
it's a soaring sound that can't be bound
and it fills up the night

so many threads left hanging
to be sewn into new songs
Track Name: get by
bayin' at the moon
bayin' at the moon
bayin' like a moonlight hound
there's a rustling in the wind
a rustling in the wind
and a restlessness without a sound
the owner come along
the tractor come along
telling us we've got no rights
our children born here
seeds grown here
and we leave without a fight

now we've got to let this red earth slip away
now we've got to let this red earth slip away from us

but we'll get by
we'll get by

living on the road
living on the road
until the orchards come in sight
mama seen the light
papa seen the light
and soon enough we'll see the light
everything is sin
everything is sin
and the preacher says there is no sin
so where do we begin
where do we begin
and where do we end?

we'll get by
don't you know that we'll get by
Track Name: lost & found
burning hoops and broken hearts
we've been jumping at things pretty hard
we got lost and we got found
pulled apart and better bound

like wicker, wax, stars and suns
at least you shine your light when it's on
it pulled us out of the wreckage
and reminded me my lover is a friend

we got lost
and we got found

those words were cold as gasoline
but they're the ones that came to me
the wreckage brought on atrophy
am i pulling you down with me?

like wicker, wax, stars and suns
at least you shine your light when it's on
it pulled us out of the wreckage
and reminded me my lover is a friend

we got lost
and we got found
