Track Name: Cathays Terrors
I will be the whole village for you
Down tools, raise you up
Throw down the sickles
Cover you in cockerel blood
Cast the spirits out
This is real
We'll take the day off work
When we sing together I feel close to you
Your pure voice
Makes me feel wonderful
Hold you close
And never let you go
'Cause you're the sweetest thing
And I need to let you know for sure


And I'm so glad that I met you
My sweet boy
I just gaze in admiration
My sweet boy
And I'm so glad that I met you
My sweet boy


If we were an amateur dance troupe
We'd record on CCTV
Works in progress
In this world of acrobats
We would try our best
Through high jumps
To drive the demons out
It's incredible really
That we got this far
The odds were stacked
There were obstacles
If only you
Could love you like I do
'Cause boy you mean the world
And I need to let you know for sure


And I'm so glad that I met you
My sweet boy
I just gaze in admiration
My sweet boy
And I'm so glad that I met you
My sweet boy


Love in my face as the terror unfolds
To the rhythm of old Cathays
Love in my face it's the mother to be
Pulling up the underlay
I never knew I could someone more than you (but I)
I never knew that this face could feel so good (but I)
I never knew that my love could multiply
Track Name: Final Drive
I was so scared when you went in the burning building
But I know it'll be ok, we're so good looking
I'll wait forever if you'll say you'll listen
Get right in your egg until you say you're having fun
She speaks and she speaks for her sisters
He speaks and he speaks for humanity
Alright alright
Let's not make this a problem
Alright alright
Why can't we leave things the same
It's our tradition, the way it's always been
It's our injustice, gone on for far too long
Track Name: Slide Out Of View
I have nothing left to lose
I'll just sit and watch the world slide out of view
All I have is in my hands
I let go and gently unfurl my mind


There is no going back
A single being now becoming two
There is nothing left to fear
Is it me or has the ceiling turned to air


I see particles of dust
Dancing in a shaft of sunlight
Those fragmented flecks of us
Are dancing their hardest
They're giving it for all they're worth


Chemically
Physically
Irrevocably
Never to seen again


There is nothing I can do
Behind my closed lids swim particles of me
There is nothing left to fear
Is it me or has the ceiling turned to air
Track Name: Mem Pal
I started searching, just to see your name
One moment, that’s all that took
If I could go back and erase time I would
But now I know, now I know
I take the safe road just the way it’s always been
But you can’t save, you can’t save me now
I fall to pieces when I Think of what I’ve seen
But you can’t save, it’s all in my head


All we are is dust
Bodies bound to earth
All we know is love
All we are is dust


Whilst you were sleeping, all I wanted was you
But now I dream of a simple way
A French official list permissible
In Russian they followed the saints
I read the handbook
Abided by the two hour rule
Anything, anything for my baby
The old ways, the old ways
Thank fuck for that they’ve gone
Old days, overrated anyway


All we are is dust
Bodies bound to earth
All we know is love
All we are is dust
All we are is dust
Bodies bound to earth
All we know is love
All we are is dust
Track Name: Utopian Gnome Sanctuary
He looks the same as
The same as my brother
She looks the same as
The same undercover
He looks the same as
She looks the same as
They look the same look the same


Un-gnomes un-gnomes un-gnomes un-gnomes
When the milkman comes to take us all

Collecting the right gnomes
Discarding the wrong gnomes
The right gnomes are white gnomes
The wrong gnomes have no homes
The pathway is gridlocked
The gate is propped open
The drones circle highly today
