about

Change is essential. Stagnation leads to boredom and that, in turn, leads to frustration. The dilemma, or course, is identifying in advance the things we perceive need to be changed, and what we think those things should be changed into? Should we throw away something that is flawed but functioning in the hope that swapping it for something else, that we can't yet see, will be better? At the moment, I see a lot of people being presented with brightly painted and colourful boxes that are closed. They look appealing and they may contain treasure. They may, of course, be empty. These are dangerous times.

Track Name: These Are Dangerous Times
These Are Dangerous Times

The long untrodden path of abstinence is laid
The only evidence of moderation fades
The way is littered with abandoned good intent
Nobody noticed where it went

Face facts or persecution - these are dangerous times
Turn down a known solution - these are dangerous times
You can fold attitudes into the shape you desire
Holding back on wonder only fills the gaps with lies

Come misappropriation sit with me tonight
Unburden expectations we demand the light
Distance fuels affection for an object of desire
Burn like paper morals on a fire

Face facts or persecution - these are dangerous times
Turn down a known solution - these are dangerous times
You can fold attitudes into the shape you desire
Holding back on wonder only fills the gaps with lies

Orchestrate your way inside unknotting string quartets
No standing ovation you deserve what you will get
Bury strangers with the past and everything they made
You won't abandon things again

Face facts or persecution - these are dangerous times
Turn down a known solution -these are dangerous times
You can fold attitudes - into the shape you desire
Holding back on wonder only fills the gaps with lies
Track Name: Another Dawn
Another Dawn

So there's the answer over there
It surely comes as no surprise
Hiding unrecognised in plain sight

Clear thinking can negotiate
Stupid ideas in early states
It still infuriates, I'm bowing out

We are never going to stop the night
From snuffing out daylight
This is a final warning
Most nights end when another dawn arrives

The best of days were never flagged
The bad ones only seemed to drag the lake
For evidence of why and when

Some kind of graphic is required
To plot the things that what we desired
Against the mess we made, it's all undone

We are never going to stop the night
From snuffing out daylight
This is a final warning
Most nights end when another dawn arrives

A sleight of hand to trick the mind
Will mystify most of mankind
If we shout loud enough the mob can't think

All days are numbered so they say
I make the numbers go away
Use tiny writing or invisible ink

We are never going to stop the night
From snuffing out daylight
This is a final warning
Most nights end when another dawn arrives
Track Name: See How The Money Runs To The Money
See How The Money Runs To The Money

See how the money runs to the money
See how the money runs

Finely craft lies
Dropped from height on low esteem
Life been undermined?
You'll do, welcome to the team

See how the money runs to the money
See how the money runs

Folded into shapes
Idea theft on every mind
There's no right or wrong
You’re either in or left behind

See how the money runs to the money
See how the money runs

Toxic poison words
Swim inside you until you die
They can't be unheard
Only drowned out when we cry

See how the money runs to the money
See how the money runs

Lenders call the tune,
Credit is a curse and a tool,
Don’t cash in on life
“I Owe Mes” are not redeemable

See how the money runs to the money
See how the money runs
