Track Name: Demise of a Family Unit
i put my trust in you
as i was forced to do.

adam.

shall we just leave Grandad's
funeral to get some food?

adam.

i had invested lots of my
own money in his failure.

i haven't been touched
in two weeks.

i put my trust in you
as i was forced to do.

adam.
Track Name: Darkest Bars
what you told me
wasn't true;
there's no ghost living
in our room:
he
vanished.

pray for goodness,
pray for truth,
pray for dad
coming home to you,
un-
vanished...

'cause now
he's

drinking in the darkest bars
drinking in the darkest bars

you
overdid it this time
but
not in future.

what you showed me
can't be real;
doesn't he care about
how we feel?
i'm
banished.

curse the crimson,
curse the cream,
curse the skin
crawling underneath;
he's
banished,

the crown
prince,

drinking in the darkest bars
drinking in the darkest bars

you
overdid it this time
but
not in future.

either you're inside
or you're out.
either you're hiding
or you're on show.
either you're a truthful man
or you're a liar.
either you're the crown prince
or just another bureaucrat.
either you want me now
or you'll hurt me.
either you want her now
or you'll bury the body.

either you come home
or you don't.
Track Name: Neighbour
always inside:

brick house, half-light,

deep womb, thin lives...


how can i love you

when your big house

hides truth

and suffering,

when we have once touched

each other's bare hands -

you dropped an apple

from your shopping bag -

when all you show me

of your still life:

a pallbearer-

silent face...?

how can i love you

when your windows

remain frosted as spring arrives?


'evening, friend

sorry to disturb you late

but I thought i'd come

just to let you know that i'm here

remind you that i...


i could never be proud of this big house,

and i don't wanna live in this big house anymore...

i need a hug

from someone who's not my friend

hold me close

reveal now what you fear

and hold now what you fear.'
Track Name: Ghost Love
i'm alright sleeping

in the bathroom

just as long as

you're almost happy.

i dream about you.

fuck your dreams about me,
all your daydreaming about me.

i don't mind keeping

to the shadows

just as long as

you know i'm here.

i dream about you.

fuck your dreams about me,
all your daydreaming about me.

said you'd never hurt me.

you said you'd never hurt me.

(that was the old me.)

ghost love.

yeah I dream about you.
you.

i'm not what I seem, in your dreams.

my ghost love
(you're hurting me).
Track Name: Unsure
it breaks all the time;
i'm doorknob-paranoid.

unsafe, insecure,
my house seems so unsure.

(so unsure)

fix the lock,
can't fix the lock,
what if i can't fix the lock?

find the screw,
can't find the screw,
what if i can't find the screw?

shut the door,
can't shut the door,
but if i don't shut the door that
dog'll rip my cat to pieces.

it breaks all the time;
i'm doorknob-paranoid.

unsafe, insecure,
my home seems so unsure.

masters of my fate:
plaster and
metalwork.

i fear it's too late
to fix the lock
find the screw
shut the door.
