Track Name: Marblehead
From the land of giants
To Marblehead
You greeted failure
With too much kindness

You put on your blue coat
And your greatest regrets
You came crashing onto this floor
Nothing will ever be the same

The graveyard silence
Of your broken heart
Sometimes is covered with snow
Sometimes is covered with grass

The air we breath
Is the wind that blows
Are you trying to swim?
Or you don’t care about drowning?

Welcome to Marblehead
Track Name: Deer Park Mirage
Deer park mirage, Deer park mirage
I almost touched you with both hands

Deer park mirage, Deer park mirage
I want to spend the day, dazzled by the sun

We’re lucky
‘Cause we saved some songs
For next week’s dance
We’re lucky
‘Cause here all alone
Our tragedies just make us laugh

We’re lucky
‘Cause we saved some songs
For next week’s dance
We’re lucky
We’re making history
Out of our junk

We’re lucky
‘Cause our tragedies
Just makes us laugh
We’re lucky
‘Cause our private rhytms
Are made of drum rolls and fanfare
Track Name: I Shot The Skier
Please sing me a song
That makes me forget
That I shot the skier yesterday

Thanks for letting me stay
Overnight at your place
These skies never looked so grey

Buy me an island
To hide away
Where no one will see me fall from grace

Thanks for letting me stay
Overnight at your place
These skies never looked so grey
Track Name: Jaffa Cakes
We will dance
We will dance
And afterwards
We’ll eat some jaffa cakes
We’ll save some for your friends

If we crash
If we crash
Don’t be scared
We’ll drink some ginger ales
Like when our stomachs ache

Here it comes
Here it comes
Hold tight my hand
Someone will feed your cats
And if we’re lucky enough
We’ll have some flashing lights to look at
Track Name: Wreckage and Dust
Old silent movies
Yesterday’s papers
Discoloured by time
Just memories
Of your legend and glorious days

Smiling tourists
Queuing with presents
Are waiting to board
They’re not for you
Life was better on feather wings

Once a legend of the air
State of the art
Now wreckage and dust

In a dark room
With your engine stalled
Ready for the last call

Take off and dig it
Fly out in circles
Like a merry-go-round

Once a legend of the air
State of the art
Now wreckage and dust

Tokyo to New Amsterdam
From Fiji to France
Now wreckage and dust
Track Name: Our Last Party
Tomorrow I’m going to your party
Tomorrow we’ll go there to tell ourselves goodbye
You’re going to another country
Tomorrow it will be like today

Tomorrow we’ll have the same feelings
Tomorrow we’ll remember songs played on the sand
The beach seemed like it was desert
While we’re playing “Who loves the sun”

And I don’t care about the things that you said yesterday
I always thought that summer never ends
And I can only hope that you will write to me some day
Like an old Beach Boys song said

This summer we’ve swam in the ocean
This summer we’ve learnt not to swim alone
The dunes never saw something as special
As you and me kissing on the sand

And I don’t care about the things that you said yesterday
I always thought that summer never ends
And I can only hope that you will write to me some day
Like an old Beach Boys song said

I’d like to keep these memories
Someday when I get old
I’d like to see your face again
Next to mine, sitting by the shore

Tomorrow I’m going to your party
Tomorrow we’ll go there to tell ourselves goodbye
We’re going to another country
Tomorrow it will be like today
Track Name: Toxic Black Mold
It was the coldest of winters
Nothing to do but watch the cattle die
The former tenant should have warned us
That this wasn’t the work of an evil eye
The work of an evil eye

My daughter has been sick for a long time
It all made sense when we found the note
Then we could see the mold on the walls
We could see the mold deep in our throats

Toxic black, toxic black, toxic black mold
Toxic black, toxic black, toxic black mold

We’ll all be dead soon,
One by one,
By some mysterious
Biblical plague

Toxic black, toxic black, toxic black mold
Toxic black, toxic black, toxic black mold
Track Name: Swimmers
I’m walking through the woods
And through wicked memories
I’m swimming through the pools
Coast to coast and no one will see

The real me, the real you
That hides inside lonely mansion on the hill
What I used to be, what I used to do
When the world was still and shone through a silver screen

I’m diving into the blue
Where it’s easier to make-believe
That I won’t look back, I’ll swim
Coast to coast and no one will see

The real me, the real you
That hides inside lonely mansion on the hill
What I used to be, what I used to do
When the world was still and shone through a silver screen

In an endless sea, painted in blue and green
I’m just a swimmer, it’s good not to be me
What I used to be, what I used to do
Nothing ever happens in closed communities
Track Name: Insane
In the house of contradictions
Is where I heard of you
You were showing your addictions
And I was desperately alone

A thousand miles and a thousand e-mails
are all the things I get from you
The screen of a personal computer
Is all that I can touch of you

I must be insane
I must be insane
To try the things I try for you
To feel the way I do for you

Traveling across the country
Just to see your face again
Coming back home ain't easy
When your feelings can't be seen

I must be insane
I must be insane
To try the things I try for you
To feel the way I do for you
Track Name: Stuck In Champagne Jelly
We got ourselves stuck
In our own Weddel sea
That turned out to be
Just champagne jelly

We waved our flags
As we drifted away
Diving from time to time
Into the champagne jelly

And some brass band
Played silver melodies
From a distant shore
We couldn’t see
And all the notes
Got stuck in champagne jelly

Three cheers out of respect
For the secrets we left behind
That we buried with care
In champagne jelly

And some brass band
Played silver melodies
From a distant shore
We couldn’t see
And all the notes
Got stuck in champagne jelly
Track Name: In Foresight Of An Injured Knee
Broken bottles warmed my hands
The sun used to tan my face
I found treasures, then lost some
But the big one’s yet to come

And I’ll be waiting for the years to come
I’ll be waiting ‘cause I know it couldn’t get worse

To prove that dad was proud of me
Here’s my injured knee
It still hurts from time to time
When the big one comes in sight

And I’ll be waiting for the days to come
And I’ll be waiting for the years to come
I’ll be waiting ‘cause I know it couldn’t get worse
Track Name: A Tale Of Summer Daybreaks
I think about it sometimes
I think that it was our last chance
To hear the green fields sing
Old tunes that made us cry

Now I don't know if I could go there again
To feel the tall trees playing over our heads
In the land where happiness grows

Remember those nights dancing
The songs we played on the sand
Where melody's the subject
And you can ride a honeybus

We must never forget that place
That showed us how to live this way
In the land where happiness grows

The morning broke and burnt our minds
The rainbow lands turned to grey
Were the people from a tale never told?
