Track Name: Island Street
The tide is high on Island Street
I'm marooned in my home
My warning fire my
Telephone
Waiting in my hand

There was an elephant in the room
But I didn't think his tusks were worth much
Guess I tried to ignore
Couldn't try, hard enough
Now that zoo's closed down

Look at where we find ourselves today
Nothing, except everything
Ever changes
And running back into you
I know tomorrow, will come far too soon
Your eyes are changing colour again
Just like last time

"So just save it for tomorrow, son"
I hear the people say
But I'm afraid I just can't settle
For the way
Things are today

I know it was only last week
And I'm sorry to be so blunt
I hate this town it's full of cunts
And a cynicism
I'd never hear from you

Look at where we find ourselves today
Nothing, except everything
Ever changes
And running back into you
I know tomorrow, will come far too soon
Your eyes are changing colour again
Just like last time

Had enough of this town, last time
Had enough of this town, last time
Had enough of this town, last time
Had enough of this town, last time
Track Name: Omnibus
The writing, if you're looking
Is on the wall
I guess I walked straight past a few times before
It's good to see you
Even if I don't smile
You've been waiting?
I've been waiting
Quite a while

When I've finished deciding
I'm no longer fighting
That waking up to something new inside was just you breezing after all
It's not so exciting
When I know, you're reciting
But you
You just love an omnibus

Can't put my finger
Quite on when the release is
But then you're back, so you say
To pick up the pieces
But I'm not that weak willed anymore
I'm gonna show you
Wish I could show you
The door

When I've finished deciding
I'm no longer fighting
That waking up to something new inside was just you breezing after all
It's not so exciting
When I know, you're reciting
But you
You just love an omnibus

So don't you give me that face
I know good things only come to those who take
And I'm certainly not one of those
Yet here I am just expecting you to know

When I've finished deciding
I'm no longer fighting
That waking up to something new inside was just you breezing after all
It's not so exciting
When I know, you're reciting
But you
You just love an omnibus
Track Name: Smile
Another afternoon rises
Have you lost count of the months?
I know for certain I have
Enjoying this freedom

And everyone is so concerned
'Til you feed them all a lie
'Cause it's just too fucking easy
When you're that way inclined

And I don't have to justify
It's a Wednesday, after all
Diving into Friday
Or as some might say "fall"

And now the only photos I smile in
Are taken when I'm drunk
And these days one night too many
Is never enough

So where would we be last year?
I'm sure you'll tell me enough
Such an angry cup of coffee
And something, some might call love

And you wake up so healthy
Not sure, which need to engage
Smile but I want it
I want it, again

So tell me, who would blame me?
If maybe I ran away
The sea is empty
Round here anyway
