Track Name: Do Androids Dream Of Electric Cigarettes
My life plays across my mind
In a series of stuttering frames
Camera obscura could never capture this
I'm staring at midnight's cold cruel abyss

I never thought that I would end up alone

You're so deep in this room tonight
It's like you're trying to breathe us all in
Those are the words you parted with then
These are the words I greet you with now

I never thought that I would end up alone

Do you even dream of the future anymore?
Or is it all just compromise and unimaginative sex?
Do you even long for more than survival anymore?
Do androids dream of electric cigarettes or is that just me?

I never thought that I would end up alone
Track Name: Nothing Changes
The moon looks painted on the Edinburgh sky
So close to home but that will never be my river
The stars shine a melancholy of distance - they're so high
I used to fly

This room is spinning on an Edinburgh night
Drinking hot and heavy singing "I ain't seen you in time"
Running on empty no longer spoiling for a fight
Hey buddy have you got a light?

Something's burning me up deep, deep inside
Nothing changes but we pretend that that's alright
Tonight's the night - we're gonna turn this aching tide
We're making piss out of this wine

Sparks burst in the Edinburgh sky
Who cares where we're going as long as they don't call in time?
Another New Year closer to the end of the line
Hey buddy have you got the time?

Something's burning me up deep, deep inside
Nothing changes but we pretend that that's alright
Tonight's the night - we're gonna turn this aching tide
We're making piss out of this wine

Nothing ever changes
Just different names and faces
I could never outrun myself

Nothing ever changes
Just different homes and places
I could never outrun myself, woah

Something's burning me up deep, deep inside
Nothing changes but we pretend that that's alright
Tonight's the night - we're gonna turn this aching tide

Something's burning me up deep, deep inside
Nothing changes but we pretend that that's alright
Tonight's the night - we're gonna turn this aching tide
We're making piss out of this wine
Track Name: Fear Of Trying
The world is a cold and desolate place
I got so scared of dying that I never really lived
I can tell by the look in your eyes that you understand
What I'm talking about

There is no light at the end of the tunnel
We gotta live our lives for ourselves

The world is a cold and desolate place
I got so scared of dying that I never really lived
Track Name: Hell For Pleather
I was free I could fly
Fifteen minutes at a time
I could count the seasons as I rolled through time

We're unique and we all die
No one gets to go in their own time
I can smell the end of us all on my breath

Woah
Woah-oh-oh
So now when I close my eyes I won't see
The gates of Hell, the gates of Hell
Calling me down like the once did
Inexorably, inexorably

So now my weeks spent at machines are for leisure
And I can't seem to get my head together
Don't know where I'm going but I'll be going Hell for pleather

Woah
Woah-oh-oh
So now when I close my eyes I won't see
The gates of Hell, the gates of Hell
Calling me down like the once did
Inexorably, inexorably

Woah
Woah-oh-oh
So now when I close my eyes I won't see
The gates of Hell, the gates of Hell
Calling me down like the once did
Inexorably, inexorably, oh listen to me
Track Name: Violence
I was never made for this
For eighteen month long winters
I was raised for city lights
And all the violence that comes with them

Violence of the heart and a million rock and roll songs
Violence from within that keeps my humble soul strong
Violence of a million street lights blinding me
Violence of those city streets within me

I was raised just for this place
A million lights blinking their misery into the night
I was raised for city lights (city lights)
And all the violence that comes with them

Violence of the heart and a million rock and roll songs
Violence from within that keeps my humble soul strong
Violence of a million street lights blinding me
Violence of those city streets within me

And although I could never go home again
Those streets are where I belong in the end (Among the!)

Violence of the heart and a million rock and roll songs
Violence from within that keeps my humble soul strong
Violence of a million street lights blinding me
Violence of those city streets within me

Within me
