Track Name: Shotgun
Shotgun

The light is dying but we will rage
We're throwing stones at a tidal wave
We ate lunch at her father’s grave yesterday

The picture depicts a familiar scene
You ain’t working alone

I’m a victim and I’m a thief
You’re the shape of a jigsaw piece
Riding shotgun I take my hands off the wheel

The picture depicts a familiar scene
You ain’t working alone
Track Name: Lemon Bee
LEMON BEE

Come walk with me through the mud
My heart as it swims with blood
It goes, it goes, it goes
It grows up to here

My name is Mariah
So take aim and fire at me
I know, I know, I know,
I know everyone and they all know me

But you’re in my face and in my space
It’s not my place, my inner space
Just let me be, let me be, let me be, let me be...

Let’s play Guns ‘n’ Roses,
And have fun with our noses,
And no, and no, and no,
No, I’m not one of them; they’re one of me

But you’re in my face and in my space
It’s not my place, my inner space
Just let me be, let me be, let me be, let me be...
Track Name: Sandcastles
SANDCASTLES

I’m giving up, I’m moving backwards
Retreating to the blue sea

So for the last time, I’m counting on my fingers
And beating a path through the beauty

It isn’t a miracle
This isn’t the United States
And all blood is pure blood
I will not waste my time

Who’s pulling your strings? Just what were you thinking?
You’ve built all your castles on sand

Now I’ve realised I’m glad that you knew me
Can feel the regret running through me

La la la…

It isn’t a miracle
The creation of a greater state
And all love is true love
I will not waste my time
Track Name: Swimming
I like swimming, do you like swimming?
Cos I like swimming, do you?
It’s all I want to do

And I like winning, do you like winning?
Cos I like winning off you
It’s all I want to do


I like Philip, do you like Philip?
Cos I like Philip today
That’s all I want to say

And I like rucking, do you like rucking?
cos I like rucking, do you like rucking?
That’s all I want to say.


Death whispers to me and says
“Live for I am coming, yes”
