Track Name: Thaw
I don't know what you've been told,
but i'll stick around for you to show.
See for years now i've been burning cold.
I need a warm heart to thaw my soul.

Calm down i'm coming home.
I'm coming back to an empty room.
But hey if i could ever sleep at night,
i'd be a happy man with youthful eyes.

But i know there's things you do,
when i'm not around that i can't prove,
but i'll blind my eyes, i'll let it slide for you.

Girl we're all just chemicals,
no ghosts inside these skin and bones.
I know we're on our own.
So lie to me girl, lie to me girl.
No i don't think we'll ever figure out,
what this cruel world's all about.
I know we're on our own,
so lie to me god, lie to me.

Everytime i called around,
i tried to pick you up when you were down,
but you've been sleeping all day, partying all night.
Girl you're killing that body with your hungry mind.
Track Name: Memory Stick
Recorded early December 2013 in Blast Furnace Studios Derry.

My hands up i'm coming out alive.
Don't shoot my empty weapons lie,
on the backseat of our taxi.
I see a little psycho in your eye.
Just another excuse you need to find,
to mess up all your make-up.

But your memories stuck like butter to toast.
My memory stick got lost in your post.
What am i to do, what am i to do.

I feel those thoughts inside,
covering up the cracks that they find.
So just beam us up tonight.
Scotty come in, you never come in.

My hands up i'm coming out alive.
Don't shoot my empty weapons lie,
on the front porch, where my jaw hurts.
You settle for gold, ill settle for the silver that i sold,
to the man i went and seen about a dog.

But your memories stuck like butter to toast.
My memory stick got lost in your post.
What am i to do, what am i to do.

I feel those thoughts inside,
covering up the cracks that they find.
So just beam us up tonight.
Scotty come in, you never come in.
I'll take your put-me-downs,
they pick me up because they bring you around.
So just beam us up tonight.
Scotty come in, you never come in.
Track Name: Egg & Spoon
I should have known you'd be that girl at the starting line,
how'd glue her egg to the spoon before the gun with Bang!
I should of known, i should of known,
that you can't run that fast with honesty on your mind.

I kept him low, i kept him out of sight my animal.
Sure how was i to know the zoo was closed that afternoon.
i got to learn, i got to learn,
that i can't drink so much with trouble on my mind.

It's kind of cool the way you make him do the things you want,
but you're a borderline bully and you know you're wrong,
but you don't want it to stop!
because you've got it all, yeah you've got him all,
to yourself.

So next time you're in the egg and spoon you're going to lose,
cause at the starting line i'll tie together your two shoes.
Track Name: Contagious
Your love is contagious,
i've been diagnosed for ages.
It's those big green eyes,
those supple breasts,
that hang upon your chest.
Your love is spontaneous,
such a simple game you play with us.
A blind hide and seek love lottery,
You spun the bottle towards me.

Now i know where to go when i'm down.

Your love turns flirtatious,
when that empty bottle changes us.
It's the way to talk, your drunken walk.
Girl you're such a mess.
But a love that's ridiculous is a love that will stick to us,
So lets forget them all, let go free fall.
You're my wetsuit from the cold.

Now i know where to go when i'm down.

Your love is audacious, a skydrivers weightless.
Our pointless pillow talk, when bodies lock.
You're the cheese to my chalk.
