EVOLVE

Relic

Dedicated to the beautiful Alfreeda Gordon RIP

I’m a relic in the time of the young
Moving but I ache to my bones
I want to go home

Back to the brae where the stars they became
Ohh my ceiling above the walls that we made
To shelter from the wind
Carving our memories right out of our dreams
Ohh and into my skin

I’m going to relish in the times we were young
Aching as we moved through our bodies
I’d whisper would you like to go home
I’m a relic in the time of the young
Moving but I ache to my bones
I want to go home

I feel it slipping and so am I
Here with Coldbackie on this wet sand I lie
Washing in the foam
Waiting for the tide to take me home
Ohh so take me home

I’m going to relish in the times we were young
Aching as we moved through our bodies
I’d whisper would you like to go home
I’m a relic in the time of the young
Moving but I ache to my bones
I want to go home

I am Mine

They take my money
To gain control
If they could Hoodoo
they would take my soul
They have my person stored on file
Not my smile

They take my money
And if I refuse
They can take my freedom with a system they abuse
Un-lawful government
exempt from their own rules
Cus they’re a super natural force and we’re the fools
Down through Childhood
Up through schools
We ask the questions that they prove
We follow suit
We follow suits

So when they ask me why I’m not in line
I will answer I am mine

While the most of us stand in line
I’d rather fall onto my debt than follow suit
So take my money,
But know that I’ll keep my body and use my time
I am human, I am mine
I am human, I am mine.

Trust in the Facts

Feeling the weight on our bodies
As we grow old
We know that vaccines add cost to disease
Putting a toll on being well
So we sell out the face of our clocks
To put in our pockets
A currency that bankers begot to profit

Don’t say that the devil can’t exist
When his head is the paper we print
Educate to trust in the facts you know
We are change and we gain as we give and grow
So educate to trust in the facts that you know.
With love we will gain as we give and grow

Europe is tied to the dollar
Your rope is tied to the dollar

Gaining the weight on our bodies as we consume
We all have addictions to substance
The figure-less figure heads figured this all out so fucking well
We were cut from the gold standard and only reserving in fractions
Nixon did sign us to crash with inflation

Don’t say that the Devil can’t exist
When his tail cracks the media whip
So educate to trust in the facts you know
We are change and we will gain as we give and grow
Educate to trust in the facts don’t you know
With love we will gain as we give and grow

Trust in your truth and see the facts for what they are

Honestly you know what lies you swallow.

 

Comfort Funk

Looking across the mood lit faces
Over the polished and patterned floor
He noticed the tassel twisting fingers
The growing discomfort of a girl
So he caught the floating rhythm
Pressed it firmly under ever heel led step
Shifting his balance on the off beat
He spun closer and he said

“Take my hand
We can dance under chandeliers
They will lead us around
Then I can lead you out of here girl”

Her fingers dropped the cloth
Picked her wine glass up instead
She lingered on the rim with a ruby kiss
Sending pressure to his head
“Will you lead me like the last time?
Through those doors and down the steps?
I don’t sit because I’m shy, I have fractures in both of my legs!”

Take my hand
As i tie you to the chandelier
It will lead you around
I will leave you hung like a puppeteer.

The Storm, The Fox (Epic)

We build our empires, walls and our homes
Forever concrete in sand and eroding stones

The good in you, thats the god to me
forever concreted, trapped inside our machines
But is it all as hard as it seems?
When we’re lost, trapped inside our machines?

Are we separated by skin?
Space between helps to define where we begin
I want to know where we begin

Because all my forever’s have turned to memories

Our hard goodbyes need their first embrace
And we hold each other so well, the worrying fades
There is beauty whilst everything fades

I can’t promise a future only the truth
I’m enjoying forever wrapped around you

So please be loving
See the beautiful in it all
please be loving
See the beautiful in us all
Don’t worry
And relax your shoulders
There is beauty whilst everything fades
I can’t promise a future, only
The beauty whilst everything fades
I’m enjoying forever wrapped around you
Watching the storm wash away
How beautifuly everything fades
Enjoy our forevers today
Because all of our forevers will turn
To memories of you

Chaos and Balance

So never think thats it
Because everything may slip
Holding will only grip
If you carry compassion
Enough to let go
If you can allow
Your selfishness and know
That everything balances
With chaos in tow
Oh the arrogance of meek and bold
To know when we don’t know
It will leave you out
When your in control
But what you give will surely grow
And if you carry compassion
Enough to let go
Then like footsteps in the snow
You will show the way out
When everything’s cold
Watch the warmth dissolve the past
And let you go.

Immortality

So would you like to live forever?
Have the time to sit with every friend
Instead of switching off to that TV box
Against your will

To see the changing of the weather
As a chance to dress up in different cloths
Like Bodhidharma said
“I plant the flowers to which the butterflies can go”

I don’t believe
What I know for certain
That mortality
I know is certain

If death is truly for the living
And “we will leave not a rack behind
I find that sudden death
Without reason can have no rhyme
Are “we rounded with a sleep?”
Or thrown from an unmade bed
With no forever
Let go and endeavour to live in its stead

I don’t believe
What I know for certain
Mortality
I know is “such stuff as dreams are made on”

Our little lives fall under so “sookada me boaby”
Cus it comforts me

Wasted Days

Watching crazy stunts
A strange excitement comes
From seeing someone else
Doing the things you’d like to do yourself
Like diving over cliffs
Riding stones and sticks
Your broken bones will fix
But still your sat at home watching youtube clips

These wasted, all these wasted days
While we sit around and wait for change

A normal house and two cars
Safe and sound but your heart knows
That your home was never interesting
Just gaining interest whilst your hairline thins
“Little boxes on the hillside” made of sellotape
Oh the moves we think we have to make

All these wasted, All these wasted days
As we sit down and wait for change
Too many wasted days

Once your bills are paid
You’ve started saving for your rainy day
Do you feel enslaved by all you own?
By all you own

In these wasted, these wasted days
As we sit down and we wait for change
To these wasted, all our wasted days
Don’t waste the chance to change.

Angry Space

Here we go
Photoshopping through the magazines
Swallowing only
Information with low calories
To slim the mind
Prescribed placebos and distractions
Anti-depressants cause anti-action lives
Threatened by a terrorist
Armed with weapons that we’ve supplied
If your aware of this disguise
Then take your blame and stop the buck
We shouldn’t pass it on

I stand to watch the sky revolve
With breaking light
How perfectly we dissolve

Do you fear in me
Things you see within yourself?
Should I fell guilty
If you hang me up as someone else?
The pneumatic drill in my left shin
Echoes the pounding on my metal ribs
These foolish feelings stalk and crouch
Then pounce on my resolve
Intertwining every fold
Into an angry space
There is apathy we can’t contain
Don’t pass it on again

I stand and watch the sky revolve
With breaking light
How perfectly we dissolve against this backdrop

Marvin said it right so don’t be scared
Pointless is to fight when I know you care
But keep on climbing
I’ll honour love with love.

Give to be Given

Dedicated to Isaac and Lilly

If darkness decends in your world
A coulourless lense that light from the sun cannont purge
I have a gift to be giving you
Your less than an island as your earth
Collapses in silence drowned by the solace of sea
I have the gift that you’ve given me
You must give to be given to
And its my gift to have been given you

Take all that you need from my arms
A lifeline of heat that I’d travel lifetimes to steal
To give to you
I’ll bridge across oceans breach over each gap to reach light from the sun and shine the moon on your back
Because I give when I’m given to
And its my gift to have been given you.

Beautiful Scars

You, your nothing more than a ghost
A lingering memory to tease me of what I can’t hold
I resist but I’m still addicted to hope
Your voice over ashes that smoulder
And keep out the cold

Oh now I am clinking glass
This shouldn’t be hard
To leave our broken bones
With beautiful scars
Nothing ever lasts enough

Games are played better on boards
You glimpsed the queen in the rain
Whilst I was winning with 4
Rum, rum, rum, rum made us rich
And then rum made us poor
Swimming in sandwiki stoms
Drunken slap pillow brawls

Oh now I am clinking glass
This shouldn’t be hard
To leave these broken bones
With beautiful scars
Nothing ever lasts enough

You were out of my touch when we walked
But I wish you luck as you run.

Waiting for Jake

Dedicated to Jake and Leaf. Viva Deltaforce the band!

I had always been waiting I’d taken too long
Looked to the future to feel my way home
Tasted love but never that much
So I brought a house and a dog and just stopped

But I never gave up hope as I chased my tail
Back to my roots through gallons of ale
Lying stoned with my head to the ground
I felt a familiar sound

And so I just listened and I heard
The quake of my boots from when I first chased you girl
When we dance in the waves
So now that I’ve listened, well its time
To let Sayles chase leaves in my Skye
I’ve set a course your gonna be mine
And of course you’ve always been mine

I’ve never felt passion like this in my veins
Challenged my worst as I tattooed the names
Of music and friendships and jokes
I’ve downloaded to prove it, come close
I can prove it all

If you would just listen, you would hear
The quake of our boots from when I first chased you girl
When we danced in the waves
Now that we’ve listened, well its time
To let Sayles grow up in our Skye
Set a course your gonna be mine
And of course you have always been.

Home

Oh my, oh my
These tiny cups and tongue touches
Like frightened drops of resigned rain
We fell into a sweet distraction

I found my home
Rolling through our cotton maze
We traded mornings in for days
Filled hours with years
No wish to waste

Oh boy, watch yourself
Climbing ladders all alone
Now strip those dated thoughts
And love this place
It brought you a sweet distraction

You found a home
Rolling through your cotton maze
Trading mornings in for days
You filled hours with years
No wish to waste
Hold me here I love this place
Rolling through our cotton maze

I found my home
I never realised, now I realise my heart is my home
I never realised, now I realise as I leave it can grow
So I’ll leave and I’ll grow.

Chaos and Balance EP

Safe Environment

Be the change you want to see
But leave no-one else behind
Filling empty seats one window at a time
Is the safest place all alone?
Converse but stay polite
Don’t read the writing on the wall
A bleeding ghost, a homemade sign
That girl was only 9 years old
But no-one sees Aicha
Her printed eyes are all alone now

This is not the only way to make a safe environment

So where is the change
In keeping silent strangers
Does violence slip away
By ignoring its behaviour?
Is the safest place not to know?
A mum soaks through
Another pillow as she drowns the sobs the cotton chokes her
Whilst we are sleeping safe and sound
Is the safest place not to know her?

This is not the only way to make a safe environment for everyone
Oh I hope she flies above

Nothing comes from Silence
But Silence keeps you safe
If nothing works and nothing changes
Then your Safe from nothing

 

Palpitations

Oh by the light of the moon
I’ll be moving into you
We will stay charmed by it all
As distance decreases, retreats until we’re grinding
Our teeth through our cages and through these limbs
We are Aching to find
A palpitating attraction

Now we can move past these wounds
As we excite all of our avenues
To make, share and pursue
Into utopia

Let us never forget
The lamb that we left under indigo lights
Through infernos and cavernous nights
We will stay charmed by it all
The beats elevated now there’s life in this cradle
Sway into inertia and up to the climax
We’ve been aching to find
A palpitating attraction

So lets move past these wounds
As we excite all of our avenues
To make, share and pursue
Into utopia

Warriors and Targets

Wont you bend
Until you fit inside and simplify into
A pocket sized synoptic leather bound
Branded token that fits right on the shelf?

We look for worth
In all these worthless little things
We learn what we are
From what we’re not

Sip this wine
To dull your common sense
Let empathy come secondary
To what suits your business
Tie the ends of your conscience
In a tidy bow around your gift of problems

We look for worth
In all these worthless little things
We learn what we are
From what we are not

As we walk into tomorrow
Leave your costume at the door
I’d like to see who is brave enough
As we open up the floor
Consider a face of value
And not just the value of a face
Roll out the blank canvas
Underneath your masquerade
Because everyone can paint

Now focus past the phoney
Slap on the turpentine
Strip the stains that hide the artwork
Beneath your masquerade
Colours surely fade in our masked parades.
