Track Name: Swell
My mom said "You ain't well"
Tell me something I don't know
My dad said "You ain't well"
Tell me something I don't know
And God said
It don't matter what you do
Cause you ain't well

The policeman said "What have you done?"
I don't know
I just woke up here.

My friends said "Where have you been? Yeah we've missed you."
I've been locked up in my room
Inside my head
And I can't stop thinking

Cause there's a hole in my skull
That I can't fill
So I find myself in sleep again.

Well today I took a walk
And I went somewhere far
I laid my body on the grass
And put my head to rest
Oh the sounds of the Universe
The smell of the Earth
The infinite Blue
The love of you

Well good-bye for now
But I will see you again
Yeah good-bye for a while
But I will see you again

It don't matter what I do
Cause I ain't well

It's so swell
Oh well
Track Name: Country Breakfast
He reads the paper
She sips the wine
None is the wiser
Everything is fine.

So waste your time
Never build what you had in mind
And I will stand right here
I'll be smiling from ear to ear.
Track Name: The Waters
Oh when the waters arise
And claim all you have dear
Your bones will surely moan
The time has come to heal

She plays with her hair
She plays with your head

Beware the darkness that lies
In depths that see no sun
And when your eyes adjust
You'll see all that you fear

She plays with her hair
She plays with your head

Now swim and claim your prize
In fingers tightly vised
You'll wear your scars with pride
And live to breathe and feel

She plays with her hair
She plays with your head
Track Name: Young Hearts
Breathe in your surroundings
Cause you're here for the day
And though it feels like trouble
I assure you it's ok

Just live for me now
Breathe deeply child
And look up from your hands entwined
Look up for me now

Let go of your sorrows
There's no room for them today
Young hearts take in the oxygen
Young hearts say it's ok

Just breathe for me now
Live deeply child
And look up from your hands entwined
Look up for me now

The water that keeps moving
Stays free stays wild
But don't go on forgetting
That you're here for a while.

Just live for me now
Breathe deeply child
And look up from your hands entwined
Look up for me now
Track Name: All The Colours
All the colours in the sky
So bright
Track Name: Last Call
Oh the night is slipping away
And the sun is breaking in
As the monsters hide under your bed
To wait, to sleep, to dream of you

Have you felt your thoughts slipping out
And your brain catch fire?
Put it out with water from another
Our souls are so tired

Hold your yourself as you would your breath
Only moments left
Oh~ we looked better as the nights got younger
Don't worry
We still have time

On this day I wish for another wish to dream away
Go to sleep my lovely lover
I will keep the monsters at bay.
