Track Name: Sleight of Hand
You were a sight for my sore eyes
Cause you’re the loving type
You wear your failures tight
Like a dress
A yearning mess
A yearning mess
A yearning mess

So take the stockings from my thighs
And let’s get high as kites
We’ll be like woodland sprites
And we’ll make love in the park
In the dark, I’ll kick start
Your broken heart
Your broken heart
Your broken heart

You said you’ll do anything
That you’re the man of my dreams
You’re just a lurid headfuck
You disappear from my arms
like a sleight
a sleight of hand
A sleight of hand
A sleight of hand
Track Name: Lost on the Coast
You’ve been so good to me
Given me everything
From the first stitch
To the last ditch effort
I wait so patiently
For things to go my way
I long to see the day
When you are proud of me
One two buckle my shoe
Three and four I’m out the door

And as I pack my bags
I leave what I won’t need
Just what’s in front of me
And what you’ve given me
I hope that it will last
Long enough for this chance
Only one thing I ask
That you not say goodbye

But all these feelings… that come up
All these feelings… left inside

But all these feelings
That come up
On the open road
All these feelings
Left inside
Like drifting wood
Ooh… I am a sentimental fool
Ooh… I am a sentimental fool
Track Name: Citadel
Animals in the sun
Animals lie in the sun
Do you feel that you were running
Do you feel that you arrived
Do you think that you were coming
for the chance to feel alive
Woah oh...
You had come here all this way
Still no welcome wagon
Thought you got yourself a steal
But you paid it with your baggage
The sun goes down on this old town on maggots
The things they say to claim that they
Hadn’t planned it
They had! They HAD planned it!

Animals in the sun
Animals lie in the sun
In the streets there is an army
In the towers, hired guns
And nothing flows so freely
from the peaks, as so much blood
Woah oh...
You had come here all this way
Still no welcome wagon
Thought you got yourself a steal
But you paid it with your baggage
The sun goes down on this old town on maggots
The things they say to claim that they
Hadn’t planned it
They had! They HAD planned it!

Animals in the sun
Animals lie in the sun

Did you feel that you were running
Did you feel that you arrived?
