Track Name: Netherton (Before The Machines Came)
Netherton was a mining town
'til 1852
'til Noah Hingley chained her down
to the banks of the number 2
but the pay was good
and the boss was fair
and the shipping trade was booming
singin' "Hey, Danny, don't you break the chain"

Well we were all forging nails
'til the machines came
'til the wages dropped, as the fat cats
tried to stay ahead of the game
There were riots and strikes
as we fought for our rights
But in the end it was all in vain
Now hey, Danny, don't you break the chain

My father and my father's father
worked the factory line
As I grew up along the locks
I thought from time to time
if I played my cards,
I could travel far
and leave this life behind
but my mother's voice still echoes to this day
Singing, "Hey Danny, don't you break the chain!"

Weigh the anchor to hold us fast,
these chains of love were built to last
Hey Danny, don't you break the chain

Now I am a man, and I've
a family of my own
I earn my wage at the linking game
it's the only work I know
The foreman calls along the line,
he calls me out from time to time
says, "Hey, Danny, don't you break the chain!"

My mind is set for labour
when I step out of my door
And when the day is done,
I leave my work on the factory floor
Cause links of steel
are easy to heal
but a happy home is worth the strain
I ain't never gonna break the chain

Weigh the anchor to hold us fast,
these chains of love were built to last
and nothing's gonna take my love away
and all the links are hands in hands
and every man across the land, sing:
I am never gonna break the chain
Track Name: Across The Line
How did I get here?
Sitting alone on the windowsill
They say I'm going somewhere
but I've got nothing but
time to kill
and I'm waiting
because there's nothing that I can do
I'm just waiting
till I've broken through

It shouldn't be easy
but they say it's not too hard
Chase the dreams that keep you from sleeping
there's no distance too far
but I'm waiting
'til my dreams come into view
I'm still waiting

It feels like wasted time
and it's hard to keep believing
in the promises that brought me here tonight
But apathy aside,
The memories we're making
keep me searching for
what I expect to find
Across the line

I'm bridging the distance
One step up the bill with every night
Got both eyes on the horizon
and the ribbon's in sight
It's a long way
a distant mountain left to climb
but I know one day
my stars will align

It feels like wasted time
and it's hard to keep believing
in the promises that brought me here tonight
But apathy aside,
The memories we're making
keep me searching for
what I expect to find
Across the line

People say
that time will fly
and I'll be fine
So while I'm here
Wasting time
The kindest critics keep me believing
that tomorrow,
I can race across the line

It feels like wasted time
and it's hard to keep believing
in the promises that brought me here tonight
But apathy aside,
The memories we're making
keep me searching for
what I expect to find
Across the line
Track Name: Nothing To Worry About
I feel like I should tell you
not to worry
Just believe me
when I tell you I'm okay
Cos I don't want to bore you
and most of the time
I'm just mildly under the weather,
nothing to worry about anyway

My mind is not predictable
Don't worry
I'm not violent
when I'm sober at least
Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I
just want to die
It's an honest to god close to
attempted suicidal feeling

And I
don't want to burden you with
the knowledge that maybe
I'd pluck up the courage
Because the feeling's too short lived
for me to try

I'm always bringing myself down
out of habit
I can't deal with being
happy all the time
So I'll find something to criticise,
like the state of my room,
or how I'm not quite where I want to be
Even if I'm getting closer every day

I feel like shit, but I won't say
What's the use?
When you're a hundred miles
of telegraph poles away
So if anybody asks
I'll tell them I'm fine
Cause I know I'd never pluck up the courage,
Nothing to worry about

But I
Can't seem to keep on top of
the knowledge that maybe
I could end this struggle
And i don't know what I want you to do

Well I'm
Sorry to burden you with
the knowledge that maybe
I'll pluck the courage
I just thought that you'd like to know
Track Name: This Glass Could Shatter
And she said, "this
isn't suicide,
it's taking the initiative;
Society is better off
with one less social renegade."
And I could see
the flaw in her fatality
But she won't listen, no, so
What's the point in talking to air?

And on the other side of
three long months,
we took a walk around the block
and took a bus out through the suburbs
and sat side by side.
And "what are you thinking?"
slipped out from my lips,
and she was answering before
I could put up any walls

"If one of the buildings
that line this street
were to explode,
this glass would shatter
and I would be dead.
If it weren't for you,
I might be dead on the inside
with two less scars in this flesh
and no way out of this mess
and I guess...
that's all."

And I said, "that's
more than I can think
at any point in time, but it's
not hard for me to understand
'cause you just put my life into words."

I asked her,
"What are you thinking?"
and she answered, she answered
She answered me

If one of the buildings
that line this street
were to explode,
this glass would shatter
and I would be dead.

And I would be dead
if you had pulled me back
I would have tried again

This glass could shatter
and I would be dead
Track Name: Early One Morning
Early one morning, just as the sun was rising,
I heard a young maid sing in the valley below.
Oh, don't deceive me, Oh never leave me.
How could you use a poor maiden so?

Remember the promise you made to me truly,
Remember how tenderly you nestled to me close
Oh, don't deceive me, Oh never leave me.
How could you use a poor maiden so?

Here I now wander alone as I wonder
How is it you leave me to misery and woe
Oh, don't deceive me, Oh never leave me.
How could you use a poor maiden so?

Soon you will meet with another pretty maiden,
You'll make her a promise, and court her for a while;
Thus ever ranging, turning and changing,
Always seduced by another maiden's smile

Early one morning, just as the sun was rising,
I heard a young maid sing in the valley below.
Oh, don't deceive me, Oh never leave me.
How could you use a poor maiden so?
Track Name: Between Your Smiles
What light through yonder window breaks?
The cloudy sky is filled with hopes and fears
My thoughts are jumbled, I can't shake this feeling
I've been holding back the tears
Without you there the room is empty
And this bed for two is emptier still
Words fight to form coherent verses
And lord knows I've got time to kill

I'll be here waiting in your room
While the whole wide world rolls by
Passing time In between your smiles
I've been holding on
to when you said goodbye

The nights are long, that you and I spend
close enough to soothe the tender ache
I hold you close, and dream of you
Forgetting you'll be leaving when I wake
The days without your love are longer
I ache for you, I pine, I perish
And though you held me only hours ago
With passing time, your touch diminished

I'll be here waiting in your room
While the whole wide world rolls by
Passing time In between your smiles
I've been holding on
to when you said goodbye

You're perfect,
and I'm dreaming of the moment
When you return to be with me
I'll always be In love with what you give to me
Surrender, 'cause I can last forever
And all that time
I'll curse the day I ever thought
That I was right, and we went wrong

I'll be here, waiting in your room
While the whole wide world rolls by
Track Name: Yours
I'm going out tonight,
and you're not on my arm
I'd take offence if that was your intent
but it really is far too far

And the drinks are expensive,
and everyone's here by themselves
I sit, and I dance, and I miss you
but I'll pretend that I'm somewhere else

and I'll be all that you've asked for
all that I can
I'll be there when you need me
again and again
'cause I'm yours
I'm yours

And I remember you
in the mountain moonlight
resting your head on my shoulder, you said
when you sing, everything is alright

So I'll let the taxis that pass
and the drunken laughs be my guitar
Sing you a song from a payphone
on the way home from the bar

and I'll be all that you've asked for
all that I can
I'll be there when you need me
again and again
'cause I'm yours
I'm yours

All that I ask
is that you give yourself to me
For my love's reflection
in every action
in the very air you breathe

I'll be all that you've asked for
all that I can
I'll be there when you need me
again and again
'cause I'm yours
I'm yours
Track Name: Aftermath (Until the Stars Fall)
The wind blows east
and keeps me grounded
So far away from you
And I can hear the voice inside my head,
he whispers,
You're wasting your time

I can't sleep at night
'cause he's not the only one
there's a chorus of unconscious
doubters screaming
"Let her go",
but I'm not leaving

I'll bide my time
keep walking the line
keep me in mind

Take these dreams
and keep them with you
so you'll never forget
That I would give you everything I have
(I promise),
If you'll do the same

Don't tell me you'll try
I've been trying for the both of us
and so far, nothing's changed
Just give me a sign
that you're in this for the aftermath
and hold me 'til the stars fall
out of the sky

All I want
is you to take me
back to where we
promised we would
make this distance work

Don't tell me you'll try
I've been trying for the both of us
and so far, nothing's changed
Just give me a sign
that you're in this for the aftermath
and hold me 'til the stars fall
out of the sky

Out of the sky
Take me higher than
the stars so we won't fall

The wind blows east
and I drift homeward
so far away from you
Track Name: Surrender
I'm not a disaster;
I'm doing okay
Got a roof above me,
and a bottle of rum
I'm on my way
But it's hard to be constructive
When you've got no will to fight
And I hate to bring you down
but this is what's been on my mind tonight

The dazzle of daylight
holds my tongue
and when the waking world's
in perpetual motion
the words won't come
you can rise with sun if you want to
but I'm taking the moon to bed
and I'll dream of constant sunshine
while you nurse your clouded head
So if your dreams are out of focus
and you're sick of the same routine
If you're still asking who you're meant to be

I'm waking up when the sun goes down
I'm choosing to surrender
to the quiet part of town
So fill my cup
I'll be alright
Just sending disenchanted prayers into the night

As passion surrounds me
it takes it's toll
When the structures I support stand freely
I'm on my own
and the temple I erected
to some semblance of self esteem
bends and buckles all around me
like I'm waking from a dream
When convention calls for caution
and creation casts it out
When the only way to build is breaking down

I'm waking up when the sun goes down
I'm choosing to surrender
to the quiet part of town
So fill my cup
I'll be alright
Just sending disenchanted prayers into the night
Track Name: Journeys
What is this life,
but a series of journeys;
from place to place,
from heart to heart,
from dream to dream?
Whether planned or unplanned,
across long distances
or just within our reach,
there is more to every journey than there seems

Been on this journey
for a little while now
and so far,
I'm liking where I've been
All the people I have met
All the words that we've exchanged
All the fables and reflections I've seen

So let me take you on a journey (or two)
we'll scout the road,
just you and I,
and where our journeying may take us
the point of journeying is to find

What is a journey
without companions?
Someone to share with,
and to care for
Someone to hold
I could travel all the world
but all the wonders it contains might pass me by
I need to see them through your eyes

I can pray that this journey never ends,
though I know that it will
So when it does,
and all is done,
I hope I'm somehow better off
than when I started

So let me take you on a journey (or two)
we'll scout the road,
just you and I,
and where our journeying may take us
the point of the journeying is to find
