1. THE SPARK

(Instrumental)


2. THE SIGHTS

Are you staying awake for the liftoff, tonight?
You'll never believe the sights tonight
The sights tonight, the sights
Are you staying awake for the liftoff, tonight?
You'll never believe the sights tonight
The sights tonight

Mr. Magpie
You got distracted by the gleam of the diamonds, as you flew by
But their dull glint does not impress
When there's a billion stars in the sky
I sit gripping my pen like a breadknife
As I write, I'm leaving this Earth for the stars tonight
And now I'm running to board the flight

Now I'll boldly go
Into the great unknown
Unless I'm Jacques Rousseau
I give you my mind to be blown
Now I'll boldly go
Into the great unknown
Like Marcus Cicero
Well this life is whole

I'm searching far and wide to find a planet to orbit
Far and wide, I wanna scan and explore it
Far and wide, you're my new planet to orbit
So fire up the rockets

Are you staying awake for the liftoff, tonight?
You'll never believe the sights tonight
The sights tonight, the sights
Are you staying awake for the liftoff, tonight?
You'll never believe the sights tonight
The sights tonight, the sights

Now I'll boldly go
Into the great unknown
Unless I'm Jacques Rousseau
I give you my mind to be blown
Now I'll boldly go
Into the great unknown
Like Marcus Cicero
Well this life is whole

I'm searching far and wide to find a planet to orbit
Far and wide, I wanna scan and explore it
Far and wide, you're my new planet to orbit
So fire up the rockets

It's over now and I'm a little bit petrified
Of what's to come, yeah my head's a bit stir-fried
It's over now and I'm a little unqualified
But fire up the rockets

(I'm searching) far and wide to find a planet to orbit
Far and wide, I wanna scan and explore it
Far and wide, you're my new planet to orbit
So fire up the rockets


3. LIVE OUTSIDE

I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this
I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this

I keep calling, keep hauling, keep hauling them back
I can't stand, can't stand, can't stand this attack
This neuron buzz is on another level
I'm on thin ice, I'm dancing with the devil

Can't sleep with the noise in this house
But you can't beat the allure of this now
I can't sleep with the noise in this house
Why won't they pipe it down?

I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this
I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this
I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this
I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this

I keep taming, keep training, keep taming the horse
But it's wild, it's feral, and it's running its course
Patiently madness waits in line
In the reception room of my mind

Waiting for the door to be left
Unattended and open for an unwanted guest
And it's so busy I'd be surprised
If I even noticed

I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this
I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this
I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this
I wanna live outside, live outside of all of this

No, they don't even know about us
They don't even know about us
No, they don't even know about us

I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this
I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this
I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this
I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this now

I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this
I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this
I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this
I'm gonna live outside, live outside of all of this now


4. TAKE MY COUNTRY BACK

Don't wanna take my country back
I wanna take my country forward
Don't wanna take my country back
I wanna take my country forward

Don't wanna take my country back
Everyone's preaching to the choirs
Words billow up and get trapped in trash fires
Fists of fury, against one's neighbor
Reeling around in the echo chamber

Now look what we've done to ourselves
We've really gone and fucked it this time
Look what we've done to ourselves

So get up get up and feel the rising tide
I'm fed up fed up with all the cyanide
Get up get up and feel the rising tide
Get up get up (get up get up)

There's anger stashed in the creases of your face
That burning rage could gut a castle
But you torched your neighbor
And now your whole town is ablaze

And everyone is seeing red
Like the pyromaniacs in the a stronghold
Sparking fury, against one's neighbor
Twisting the truth with a blamethrower

Now look what we've done to ourselves
We've really gone and fucked it this time
Look what we've done to ourselves

So get up get up and feel the rising tide
I'm fed up fed up with all the cyanide
Get up get up and feel the rising tide
Get up get up (get up get up)

I don't wanna take my country back
I wanna take my country forward
I don't wanna take my country back
I wanna take my country forward

I feel like we're living on the edge
And the cliffs are eroding
I feel like we're living on the edge
And the cliffs are eroding
I feel like we're living on the edge
And the cliffs are eroding
I feel like we're living on the edge

So get up get up and feel the rising tide
I'm fed up fed up with all the cyanide
Get up get up and feel the rising tide
Get up get up (get up get up)


5. AIRFIELD

A field, desolate
And underfoot, a tarmac river flows
I wait to depart, an inconceivable aught
When you're no wings and all elbows
Oh, it's so cold
I watch my breath unfold
It wraps us in a cloud of gloom

Through adversity
Hope must not become the casualty

It's common for people to believe
Everything happens for a reason
I'm sorry that's false, and it's poison

Even if there is no purpose
To the things that you have gone through
An ordeal can reveal an airfield

Stop, disown fear
And I'll be here
If you need a friend, my dear

So you're down on your luck, you're down
Yeah you're down on your luck, you're down
But that don't mean you're out
No it don't mean you're out, now

So you're down on your luck, you're down
Yeah you're down on your luck, you're down
But that don't mean you're out
No it don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out

So you're down on your luck, you're down
You're down on your luck, you're down
But that don't mean you're out
It don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out
No it don't!

So you're down on your luck, you're down
Yeah you're down on your luck, you're down
But that don't mean you're out
It don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out
(No it don't!)

So you're down on your luck, you're down
Yeah you're down on your luck, you're down
But that don't mean you're out
It don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out, now
It don't mean you're out

When the wind's against you
Remember this insight
That's the optimal condition
For birds to take flight
Now the wind's against you
Don't give up the fight


6. RABBLE ROUSER

I torture rock stars with pliers
They're so stock, it wouldn't be a shock
If I open them up to see wires
I destroy all amplifiers
People climbing over bodies like spiders
I'm on stage with a face like a sack of screwdrivers
It's gonna be a show stop, road block
And we are the epicentre of the bedrock of a new sound
I say we're coming for you
And I say it with face like a sack of
Screw, screw, screw, screw

What's your criteria? Complete hysteria
Decibels so max you can yell out
Your deep secrets, nobody's gonna hear ya
What's your medium? Complete delirium
The lunatics took over the asylum
En garde

Warning, this escalates quickly
Are you getting nervous?
Are you getting nervous?
The mist rolls in thickly
Are you getting nervous?
Warning, this escalates quickly
Are you getting nervous?
Are you getting nervous?
The mist rolls in thickly
Are you getting nervous?

What's your technique?
So, so, so, so unique
Fuck ego, minimize the self
Maximize the bond - the clique
What's your business here?
Sit back and witness sheer
Chaos, you can't keep track of the hell we raise

Warning, this escalates quickly
Are you getting nervous?
Are you getting nervous?
The mist rolls in thickly
Are you getting nervous?
Warning, this escalates quickly
Are you getting nervous?
Are you getting nervous?
The mist rolls in thickly
Are you getting nervous?
Have you lost your nerve?

I torture rock stars with pliers
They're so stock, it wouldn't be a shock
If I open them up to see wires
I destroy all amplifiers
People climbing over bodies like spiders
I'm on stage with a face like a sack of screwdrivers
It's gonna be a show stop, road block
And we are the epicentre of the bedrock of a new sound
I say we're coming for you
And I say it with face like a sack of screw, screw, screw, screw

Warning, this escalates quickly
Are you getting nervous?
Are you getting nervous?
The mist rolls in thickly
Are you getting nervous?
Warning, this escalates quickly
Are you getting nervous?
Are you getting nervous?
The mist rolls in thickly
Are you getting nervous?


7. SHINRIN-YOKU

Surrounded
Sunk deep in the dense embrace of the forest
I imagine this is the polar opposite of suffocation
My lungs seem to gain extra capacity here
And I feel like an empty inbox
As I, contemplate the ultimate assault course
The roots, the stumps, the branches
I squint into eternity
As I try to get to grips with the fact that we have no idea what we're dealing with

My lungs fill with air
I feel supercharged now
My lungs fill with air
I feel supercharged
My lungs fill with air
I feel supercharged now
My lungs fill with air
I feel supercharged

I'm hyper aware
I shiver and short circuit
At the depths of the universe

I'm hyper aware
I shiver and short circuit
At the depths of the universe

We are the dust on the stained glass windows
Trying to comprehend the cathedral
We are the dust on the stained glass windows
Trying to comprehend the cathedral


8. UNDERCOVER AGENTS

And I said park your car and come on up to my house
We'll plan a revolution
And I said yeah I think I'm ready to begin
We'll destroy the disillusion

I am currently under construction
Thank you for your patience
We veneer unveil we present a cold disguise
We're all undercover agents

It's only in our heads
It's only in our heads

I'm so done with the pressure
You ever try to control everyone's perception
I'm done with the weather
Trapped in the mist I can't find myself

It's only in our heads
It's only in our heads

I'm so done with the pressure
I'm so done with the pressure

And I said if you want to go far and wide now
We've got to go together
And I said if you want to go far and wide now
We've got to go together

Tonight I'm howling with the wolves
Yeah I'm howling can you hear us now
I was seeking another life
And the moon was so bright

Tonight I'm howling with the wolves
Yeah I'm howling can you hear us now
I was seeking another life
And the moon was so bright

It's only in our heads
It's only in our heads

I'm so done with the pressure
Twist and control everyone's perception
I'm done with the weather
Trapped in the mist I can't see the truth

It's only in our heads
It's only in our heads

I'm so done with the pressure
I'm so done with the pressure

Park your car and come on up to my house
I want to see your body
I don't want the gloss I want to see the truth
I want to see your body

Tonight I'm howling with the wolves
Yeah I'm howling can you hear us now
I was seeking another life
And the moon was so bright

Tonight I'm howling with the wolves
Yeah I'm howling can you hear us now
I was seeking another life
And the moon was so bright


9. THE REVOLT OF THE ATOMS

When truth gets left untouched
it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched
When truth gets left untouched

I woke in a fluster
I saw my walls disintegrate, before my very eyes
Now that was a surprise
I looked out my window
I saw houses fracture and dissolve
Straight into thin air
That gave me a scare!

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

I found some intel
The atoms had conveyed, convened and connived
To the sound of my alarm clock
Now that was a shock
Helium spoke first
It cooled tempers and lifted spirits
But then it made a threat
And that made me sweat!

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

They plan to wipe us out
They plan to wipe us out

When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust

Everything is crumbling


10. AN ODE TO LOST JIGSAW PIECES (IN TWO MOVEMENTS)

[Movement 1:]
If this is a siege
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out

If this is a siege
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
But I'm full of doubt

I awoke with a face like a crumpled plastic bag in a puddle
When everyone in this town is a bag for life
He said my life is a total mess, it's 8pm and I'm not even dressed
And oh how I miss your Prosecco-glazed lips
I miss them like the majority of modern mainstream music misses an original metaphor for missing someone

I was so scared of confronting the world alone
Fear put me in a headlock and dragged me back from the unknown

So if this is a siege
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
But I'm full of doubt

If this is a siege
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
But I'm full of doubt

I tried to defend our castle walls
But the attack came from within the halls
They say that time heals so
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
But I'm full of doubt

I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out
I'll wait this out

[Movement 2:]
I may backtrack on these words one day
I may orphan what I'm about to say
But in my chest there's a thundering pain
It feels like God's in there, having a migraine

And this is tough, man
I've lost small pieces of my jigsaw
It don't seem worth making now, man
They say you've gotta stay busy
I'll keep keep keep my mind occupied on the here and now
'Cause you're not with me
But that's okay, we'll cope somehow
We all cope somehow
We'll cope somehow

We'll cope somehow
We all cope somehow
We all cope somehow!
We all cope somehow!
