Track Name: Oh no, the swamp
What is one more footstep when it’s washed out in the rain

yeah when the fertile floodplain trap remains the same



oh no the swamp, no it fills my day with wants

yeah when I’m up in to my neck in the filth again



and in all my lunches, I’ve barely grown a leaf

I am a child of industry and of the streets



you and I both know that the bread is a sign

of the flesh and of the light

denied

the wrong birth, to the hard earth



and the ploughman’s hands like a rhythm on the earth they beat



mud smothered beast cooked well and served up as a feast

when the meat is gone, you’re nothing, no, no one



wake up from the deep my son, rise up from your sleep

and run for the shadows, wait for no one but the sun



you and I both know that the bread is a sign

of the flesh and of the life

denied

to the wrong birth, to the hard earth


and the ploughman’s hands like a rhythm on the earth they beat
Track Name: Rorschach
Oh you spill like ink
all over my mind

Stain the page, stain the arches
hang on every black margin
you’re a wall you are Jericho
horns they play you come tumbling down

No more war no more centerfold
to hang on to and pollute the water
well, you are legion and you are few
hang on to, hang on to

If you’ve got nothing to say
you’ve got nothing to lose

Oh you spill like ink
all over my mind

To the harbour, to the city
to the river and to the soil
to the smog that hangs in the air
and the blood that sits on the boil
to the voices all in chorus
who will try to drown you all out
oh you're diving , diving and climbing
everywhere between a cry and a shout

If you’ve got nothing to say
you’ve got nothing to lose

Come all you mules
and you well-shoe'd horses
come all you fighters
with your heart shaped bruises
i’ve been one in far too few
and I want you to leave
set them up just to knock them down
you’re nothing but a thief

Said the big blue ocean
you’ve got nothing on me
your ink stained page is just
another drop in the sea
