Track Name: I Can See Totterdown
Last leaves have eyes of coal
Caught in the updraught
White smoke to spin for yarn
Where the tree fell in the grove
White smoke

I can see Totterdown
I can see Windmill Hill
But I cannot see yet my son dig the earthworm
For Nobby's dowel spoke
Now she's pulling on the choke

Top twigs press into twigs
And they are the preimage in the vault
And out into the settling
I can see the yarn unwind
Twenty-seven, twenty-eight

We could go Totterdown
As yours are now Freezing Hill
So let me walk all the earth with no name
Until I come of age
I'll be coming to you
Track Name: Loserville
I'm on a losing streak
And everyone I meet
Just smiles
And turns away
And If you say the words
I can't but say that I'm no fool
And if you come down in my car
Ain't nothing I can do
But turn around
And turn it down
And if you're bleeding much too far
Ain't nothing to see you through
You can't reach out
Can't make a sound

I'm on a losing streak
Living on Loser Street
Loserville
Track Name: New Shoes
You wanna run before the sky starts to fall
You don't wanna wait though it might not at all
You say you want it so bad, then when it's been had
You say you just don't want it no more

You wanna live while you got the chance
You want a chase and a real romance
But now that I'm here, you tremble with fear and say
Is this what I want? Is that what I want?

And you talked about swimming upstream
Girl I for one sure know what you mean
But I'll grow stronger each day, soon I'll know what to say
To make you see the light I have seen

Once I was the carriage, I was the seat
I was the shoes and the soles of your feet
I wish you knew I'm here to stay, won't be worn away
And I wish that the next time we meet, you'll say

You is you, I is I, and the interface is stable
You is you, I is I, and the interface is the interface
You is you, I is I, and the interface is stable
You is you, I is I, and the interface is the interface

Let's make a family
With family priorities
I need new shoes
These are worn through
Track Name: In The Autumn Evening Swoon
In the autumn evening swoon I’m amused
By the jaundice ash among the yews
Chasing trains with my uncle’s lens
Light won’t bend for the sheepdog, for the mountain, we are people

I want to go home with you, I’m confused
By your bridges and your views
Racing stillness before it ends
For all the silver of the birch tree, of the magpie, we are people

Dissipating energy, increasing our entropy
The grass was parted, our feet were wet
I don’t know how this started but I’ll never forget
The year we spent, the fear that went away

How did this start there’s a hot stone in my heart and I wanna go home with you
The mountain moon couldn’t pass me twice too soon coz I wanna go home with you

Under awesome eves of June you were bruised
And haunt this thrasher you would choose
Facing panes slow will flow the Thames
Send the stems to the deer bones, to the mountain, we are people

I want to go home with you, I refused
By your ridges and your views
Bracing illness before it bends
From the Tamar to the Beauly to the blue sky, we are people

Dissipating energy, increasing our entropy
The grass was parted, our feet were wet
I don’t know how this started but I’ll never forget
The year we spent, the fear that went away

How did this start there’s a hot stone in my heart and I wanna go home with you
The mountain moon couldn’t pass me twice too soon coz I wanna go home with you
