Track Name: I Used To Live In Davey Jones Locker
Taking back all the things I've said, my hearts still beating like the living dead
Woah-oh-oh-oh, where we’re going tonight depends on who’s holding the scythe
So grab your torches and grab your lights, find a sense of hope to sail into the night
Woah-oh-oh-oh, where we’re going tonight depends on who's holding the scythe

With sharks like knives and pens of our lies I’ll write you a symphony of a man who lived underneath a sea of his lies
With sharks like knives and pens of our lies I’ll write you a symphony of a man who lived underneath, underneath
And all in time, you will find, the wreckage I call my mind
And I’ll sail the seven seas on frail wings to find the shores of entropy I know that is a certainty

It’s enough to throw it all away, on a cast away stretch where we once laid
Where the waves don’t move and the trees they never bloom
We watched the seconds elapse, we watch the moon eclipse
As I said, have faith in us

With sharks like knives and pens of our lies I’ll write you a symphony of a man who lived underneath a sea of his lies
With sharks like knives and pens of our lies I’ll write you a symphony of a man who lived underneath, underneath
And all in time, you will find, the wreckage I call my mind
And I’ll sail the seven seas on frail wings to find the shores of entropy I know that is a certainty

Take me back to the nights when we were so young, and we grabbed all the stars from where they hung, and they told us all their stories of how they fell to us
It was a beautiful hell, I don’t mind cos I’m sitting entwined with you and I’m kind of fine, yeah
Take me back to the nights when we were so young, and we grabbed all the stars from where they hung, and they told us all their stories of how they fell to us
It was a beautiful hell, I don’t mind cos I’m sitting entwined with you and I’m kind of fine
Knowing my heart beats for two and the other half is beating just for you
Track Name: I Am River Phoenix
Take me down to the river, so I can follow the stream to the ocean, and dive right in
Guide me, cos I've been feeling so lost lately, I've been tripping over my feet daily, I need a place to wash away my sins

And the world is falling to my feet, like the final curtain is devouring me
I don’t have the words and I can’t find the time, I'm sorry I'm so sorry, dear friend of mine

Take me home cos I feel out of place here, I need somewhere I can feel safe near, where everyone knows my name
Break me into a thousand pieces, cos I don’t want you to miss this and I can’t get over what we have been through

And the world is falling to my feet, like the final curtain is devouring me
I don’t have the words and I can’t find the time, I'm sorry I'm so sorry, dear friend of mine

So take me for what I'm worth, or kick me to the curb, all I ask is you to think of me somewhere down the line, dear friend of mine
So take me for what I'm worth, or kick me to the curb, all I ask is you to think of me somewhere down the line, dear friend of mine
Dear friend of mine, dear friend of mine, dear friend of mine, dear friend of mine
Track Name: Crims, Crooks And The Cookie Jar
I’ll pave the roads with cobblestones and I’ll lace them with jewels
Underneath the canopy you know they will shine for you
Trace the trees back to the sea and take shelter on the shore
Count the waves beneath your feet, you know you’re good at keeping the score
So tell me what’s the score?

And you’ll run, run, run, run right back to me
You’re always pulling at my sleeves
I’ll choose my words so eloquently
But you steal my breathe like a common thief

You’re losing grip of those big old ships and they’re sailing out of view
The moon hums an unfamiliar tune, you’ve heard nothing new
Wrap the trains in cellophane so the colours of the world can be seen
Chase the stars into the park, won’t you lay awake with me
Please lay awake with me

And you’ll run, run, run, run right back to me
You’re always pulling at my sleeves
I’ll choose my words so eloquently
But you steal my breathe like a common thief

You’ll run, run, run, run right back to me
You’re always pulling at my sleeves
I’ll choose my words so eloquently
But you steal my breathe like a common thief
Track Name: Night Terrors Ma'am
Where do we go from here when everyone, everyone knows our names
Well my safest bet is with the people that, don’t even know we’re breathing
So I’ll be safe, lurking in the shadows of all the shining stars
And I can dream or take all the pills that erase you from the maze
That consumes my mind

Oh my dear, my fears are always running on the outskirts of my mind
Oh my dear, all my fears are the monsters that keep me awake at night

So can you save me, from all of these dreams that I’ve been dreading tonight?
Will they keep on, keep on haunting all my dreams
All these night terrors will be the death of me

Would you look at me the same, would you know well of course you know what I, what I’ve done
And would you be there in the end saying it’s OK, it’s OK to be afraid of what we don’t know

Oh my dear, my fears are always running on the outskirts of my mind
Oh my dear, all my fears are the monsters that keep me awake at night

So can you save me, from all of these dreams that I’ve been dreading tonight
Will they keep on, keep on haunting all my dreams
All these night terrors will be the death of me

Don’t make me feel so ashamed of everything that I was so proud of
And don’t make me feel so afraid of everything that I believed in
And don’t you ever feel alone, and don’t you ever just want to go home
And don’t you ever feel alone, and don’t you ever just want to go home

Oh my dear, my fears are always running on the outskirts of my mind
Oh my dear, all my fears are the monsters that keep me awake at night
Track Name: Williams Wish Wellingtons
Your tongues as sharp as the knives in my back and you’re tying me down to that old broken track and I can’t move
Anywhere any more
You'll pick me up and you'll place me on top of a house to keep watch of a town I don’t really care for
What are we here for

Show me the way to that old wishing well
I've got my scars and I've got my scores to settle
Show me the way to that old wishing well
After this is all said and done my friend I will still wish you well

You get to me like a wolf gets his sheep and I'm losing my tongue and I can barely speak at all
To anyone any more
So I'll shut my eyes as we choke our goodbyes and you turn yourself around and leave me standing there at your door
I hope you find what you’re looking for

Show me the way to that old wishing well
I've got my scars and I've got my scores to settle
Show me the way to that old wishing well
After this is all said and done my friend I will still wish you well

Stubborn as hell I'll cling to my sword as we fight to the death and we fall to the floor and I can’t
Keep doing this any more
It might sound dumb but my friend you have won and I'm packing it in and I'm taking myself back home
God it’s been so long

Show me the way to that old wishing well
I've got my scars and I've got my scores to settle
Show me the way to that old wishing well
I've got my scars and I've got my scores to settle
Show me the way to that old wishing well
After this is all said and done my friend I will still wish you well
