Track Name: Grin
Sitting, drinking, thinking bout what be.
That something’s never drunken before.
Laughing while the crow that surrounds me.
Seems to greet me through their lavish décor.

Flitting bout a sea of delusion.
Fighting while the spirit gives in.
Soaring down the hatchet to freedom.
And suddenly the world starts to spin.

And I grin, and I grin.
And I grin as the birds keeps on singing.
And I smile, and I smile,
And I smile as the birds keeps on swinging.

Flight’s the way they all keep on moving.
Keeping grooving ‘bove the silk laden ground.
No one wants to think about landing.
Fear the silk will tear all the way down.

Wondering whether we’ll all keep laughing.
Wings a flapping after wells run dry.
Party pointed towards the horizon.
Ain’t surprising everyone wants to fly.

Got to stay high! Got to stay high!
High ‘bove the crowd, up in the clouds,
Trying to keep both my feet off the ground.
Got to stay high! Got to stay high!
Up through the trees, high with the breeze.
Flying out towards that big blue open sky.

And I grin, and I grin.
And I grin as the birds keeps on singing.
And I smile, and I smile.
And I smile as the birds keeps on swinging.
Track Name: Hammer
Always just a little late,
Never hurts to keep on trying.
Better late than never there.
Shame that I don't really care.

One more pull to ease the pain,
One more pack to keep me sane,
One more's never quite to be.
Still the hammer's gonna drop,
Ain't nothing more to do to stop,
The Hammer's dropping on me.

Time just always screwed with me,
There's no easy out I see.
Just got to sit on down and bare it.
Time to finally stop the running,
No more luck or dirty cunning,
Face the music as I hear it.

I didn't know that it would crumble.
I didn't think it'd crash the crown.
Little hurt will keep you humble.
Just cause you fall don't mean you're down.

Thought we be coming towards the end,
This story's far from done my friends,
There's still a mess of things to do.
Though I may be a better man,
The past is always just at hand,
To keep the sinner's running true.

One more pull to ease the pain,
One more pack to keep me sane,
One more's never quite to be.
Still the hammer's gonna drop,
Ain't nothing more to do to stop,
The Hammer's dropping on me.
Track Name: Growing to Stand the Sight of You
I never knew that you were s’posed to say I love you.
I never knew that you were s’posed to really care.
Why you still here? What’s wrong my dear?

Is it fear that keeps you here tonight beside me.
Is it pain that drains the soul from under you.
Vixen be gone! Stayin way to long.
Or maybe...I’m growing to stand the sight of you.

All those times you came to find me drunk and willing.
Not a shilling paid for one mere afterthought.
Maybe I see, there could be we.

Perhaps you put a potion on my table.
Barely able just to break on past those eyes.
To my surprise. I don’t despise.
That maybe...I’m growing the stand the sight of you.

Don’t you see that this can never be we’re too far apart.
Love was void from the deal, we were doomed from the start.
Yet your stuck in my thoughts, fought the battle in vain. Cause it’s plain...

Just a tease, meant to please,
Just a floozy who was in it for the fun.
In my dreams, now it seems,
You’ve somehow snaked your way and now it’s done.
Tried to fight the feeling that I never knew would come,
Tried to see you when I’d need you, just a dame under my thumb.
But yet you’ve grown in my head, weighing heavy on my mind,
Never thought you’d bend my knees and send hot shivers down my spine.
But now I do, all thanks to you.

Cause I’m growing to stand the sight,
Although I try so hard to fight it that I
Might just be excited, slightly
Scared not quite delighted,
Yet Your stuck in my thoughts, fought the battle in vain,
Cause it’s plain.
I’m growing to stand the sight of you...
