lyrics ---------- I was found by the altar Wearing red for a change My brother once told me It’s where you go to be saved Ahh I drank a spoon of warm water Held my hand to the flame Listened for footsteps It’s what you do to stay sane Ahh Ribbon come tie round my finger And help me in floating away I forgot what I need to remember So I’ve packed it away for today Ahh The pots that i’m turning are turning to ashes The slippery surface is keeping me balanced The stars are all moving but nobody noticed The colours cascading inside of the darkness I see it all It all Maybe i’m honey Maybe i’m stray It sounds kind of funny It’s one way to play safe

lyrics ---------- What am I to do When the fire’s never ending And the ember’s turning blue What am I to do when the house begins to crumble And all I’ve got is glue What am I to do When the lying dandelion Says it’s only half-past two What am I to do When they promise endless safety If I stay inside the zoo Only time will tell How could we run away and join the circus? Only time will tell If something’s sitting underneath the surface Oooh What am I to do When the sunlight plays me gentle On a satin afternoon What am I to do When my breath becomes the iron spring That leaks into the room What am I to do What am I to do What am I to do What am I to do

lyrics ---------- Wind come take me now Before I got my own way Bartered by the night Three knots take me west In the morning Shall we find the Summerland Beneath the quickening? The quickening Tired morning sun Changing tack alone Again Nothing left undone Make good my way Oh, Atlas Shall we find the Summerland Beneath the quickening? The quickening In between the I and me

lyrics ---------- I’ve been lost in a butterfield I’ve been seeing in blue Making like I’ve been ready to Head on to you There’s a saying by the waterside It doesn’t matter what you do This life is just a breath of air Like a stone, you’ll fall through Are we late for the opening? Has the dusk been and gone? I’ve been so busy becoming I forgot how to be anymore
