Track Name: Towers
I write letters to you every day,
I'm sure that you get them but I'm sure that you throw them all away.
And it gets colder here every night,
My bones keep breaking they're as brittle as the ice,
A word from you now that would be nice.

I've been screaming from the highest tower,
Near the man with all the power,
But I feel I've been talking to myself.

So put me back on the bottom shelf,
Where I learned to help myself,
But I feel I've been sitting here for quite a while.

Cycled right up to your front door,
I turned around and I cycled 'round the block once more.
Then the rain oh it started to pour,
I've never felt pain in my heart like that before.
Brought me straight down to the floor.


I've been screaming from the highest tower,
Near the man with all the power,
But I feel I've been talking to myself.

So put me back on the bottom shelf,
Where I learned to help myself,
But I feel I've been sitting here for quite a while.
Track Name: I Can't Love
We're dancing and we're laughing,
take me by the hand and then I'm sure that later on we'll be romancing.
You feel good then you feel bad,
Wake up in the morning feeling dirty and rough that's what I live for.

You look at me then I look at you,
Picture you with no clothes on you can picture me if you want to.
Have a drink and have a smoke,
Whisper in my ear give this dog a bone it's easy enough to provoke.

I,
Can't,
Love.

We were dancing and we were laughing,
Sure enough later on we were romancing.
Pleasure from the skies above,
Whisper in my ear tell me that you love me but you know I can't love.
Track Name: I Want To Keep Her
We bought a house in Leicester Square,
And on every wall I hung pictures of her.
We had a dog and a blind Eagle,
And every night we satisfied it's lust for people.

We go dancing in the Moon light,
You don't like it too much.
Need the Sun on your skin,
And you're warm to the touch.

You invite me in for the cup of tea,
I say that's an English tradition that's lost on me.

I want to keep her,
I want to keep her,
I want to keep her safe and keep her warm and keep her alive.

We drank until we're blind,
In the eighteen hundreds we were considered civilised.
And all the time I spent under,
Sedation she was with her.

We go dancing in the Sunlight,
But you don't like it too much.
You say the Sun burns your skin,
and you're cold to the touch.

You invite me in for a cup of tea,
I say that's an English tradition that's lost on me.

I want to keep her,
I want to keep her,
I want to keep her safe and keep her warm and keep her alive.
Track Name: Neeas
You've been looking to see,
If there's anyone else inside of me,
But if what's on the surface doesn't serve it's purpose,
Then I'll be leaving you.

Because out there there's golden sands,
Crystal clear waters tell your mothers and daughters,
If they can't stand these orders,
They should leave here when they can.

What's out there for me,
Can't you tell me baby.
Take me by the hand.

I once heard a man say,
Grant me the strength to change the things I can,
The courage to accept the things I can't,
And the wisdom the know the difference.

Five years after that day,
I gathered news that the man had passed away,
Put a gun against his head,
Guess he had the strength and courage but didn't know the difference.

What's out there for me,
Can't you tell me baby.
Take me by the hand.

Oh my mother and father,
I felt no fear,
As my body cleared the atmosphere,
Ohh.

You've been looking to see,
If there's anyone else inside me,
But if what's on the surface doesn't serve it's purpose,
Then I'll be leaving you.

Because out there there's golden sands,
Crystal clear waters tell your mothers and daughters,
If they can't stand these orders,
Oh I'll still be loving you.
