Track Name: Small World
come build a shelter with only your hands
come build a room for your love to stand
paint the walls, I stand in the door
you can’t feel unprepared at all
stay calm, stay good
we’ll be fine if we take it slow

lay me down on your chest
darling, arrest my adolescence
turn me around and wind me down
unpack my heart, wrap it in my jeans
and stack it in the drawer

lace your grace across my feet
trace your father’s name upon my back while I try to sleep

take what you want, build a better a man

hang those skinny arms over those white keys
play me something rough, don’t just play to please
give me something beautiful to break
cause I cannot face this right now
what if I can’t love him like I should?

lace your grace across my feet
trace your father’s name upon my back while I try to sleep

take what you want, build a better a man
Track Name: Golden Voyager
I am a quiet riot
born out of harm’s way
with static in my mind
and bones made of nylon

wake up, stop flinching
the golden voyager

just watch me
I’ll drift ‘til I find that corner office
there I’ll find the beggars and choosers
are hand in hand

wake up, stop flinching
the golden voyager

it won’t hurt
just throw me in the dirt
break my legs
and tie me up again

the golden voyager
Track Name: Us City Boys
us city boys
we drink to get drunk, fight for laughs
and us city boys
thought that you’d get right back up

but don’t you know?
we were meant to say sorry
and not goodbye

for Justin we shout aloud
we raise our heads to the sky now
for Justin we shout through the rain
cry with us now

us city boys
we only cry with smoke in our eyes
when we threw the roses down
and knew that you were truly gone

but don’t you know?
we were meant to say sorry
and not goodbye
we miss you mate

for Justin we shout aloud
we raise our heads to the sky now
for Justin we shout through the rain
you cry with us now

and we are the boys of old Fitzroy
Track Name: Steps
did you write down the steps
to falling in love?
did you tell yourself to quit
or fall asleep with the light on?

fall asleep, don’t you fall asleep with the light on

& the face in the tv
is nothing more
than a cheap film wash
dissolving

nothing but a ghost

did you write down the steps
to falling in love?
