Track Name: The Lonely Man
He just sits there by the Grave
Hoping it don't Rain down tonight
Head in hands he cries her name
Deep in Happy thaughts
Amd despite all the Things he Wan'ts to do
He will never see them through
The sky is black, but he is blue tonight

Looking up above he thinks,
How and When?, why is he sittin' here
She was only young to him
And as he recollects he sheds a tear
The fucked up shit in his head
Will stay with him until he's dead
She will never leave, he said in fear

Coz he's only, a few inches from the floor
And they're laughing
The Lonely Man
He aint laughing anymore

Memories will pass him by
Always good and never really bad
But memories can't always last
and neither can the feelings that he had
and when he's sleeping alone
it never really feels like home
Face it boy your screaming pretty bad

Coz he's only, a few inches from the floor
And they're laughing
The Lonely Man
He aint laughing anymore

He don't notice all the world
everything will stop for just a day
eyes are fixed on just one thing
Knowing soon he's got to Walk away
And after that he will know
that from now on he's feeling low
face it man, it's been a shitty day

Coz he's only, a few inches from the floor
And they're laughing
The Lonely Man
He aint laughing anymore

Dawn approaches at the scene
Lonely man lies statued, eyes are shut
Weeping air blows through his vains
his icy fingers solid as a rock
The jogger got a surprise
he phones the ambulance, it arrives
but he was dead and clutching at the clock

Coz he's only, a few inches from the floor
And they're laughing
The Lonely Man
He aint laughing anymore
anymore
Track Name: Connection
Immensely Shadowed counter action,
Jilted from her Satisfaction,
Triggered from the point of sanction,
You know they don't want to thank you,
Like to think a Comprimise, Can Lead you to the Skies
The Flies will sing around my pound with Hounds
And I will scatter around my Sound

A Mission from the Stars,
Awaits the Beerettasist,
And Cars will beep their horns,
And out performm each other
Trying just to be the biggest Man,
The Plan is, Shoulders, Triceps,
Twice as nice for 80 Reps, and he'll be sure that he has kept in him,
His Soldier, His fighter
His JD Fuelled all Nighter
And the Shiner that he Sports, is Like a Trophy that he Saught
And the style is important,
Coz we can,t be seen to be different
And the Weekend can't come soon enough
And now the Weekend seems to be extended
Since when did
All Connected
Become Respected?

Loonacy, Buffoonery
Engagement for the Bored are'nt flawed
They make the Listless lifeless individual push the Boundaries
A frown a Day is practices with impeccable Routine
but they are Screaming in their Gorilla fists
They can,t be moved to the V.i.p list
Mr Cool get in the que, There's an angry glace at you
And the Pills are passed around like Candy
Makin' people fine and Dandy,
Shandy, there is not, and the Dance floor's getting hot,
And the Regulers will throw their shapes
to make sure that the Music's never Ended
since when did
All protected
Become Connected?

Sacrifice, is never nice
And we all have a head like Thunder
Wonder where the hair of the dog
Is lurking in this hazy fog?
A man is taken down, by a liquid and a frown
And his back pocket is Lonely, Coz the only hole is what your Mother rented
Since when did
All protected
Become Connected
Track Name: Departure Story
Arrived, So far from Home,
I,ve Skived, I,ve lost my phone,
Carry the Weight of an Angel,
Trying to Act like a Stranger,
I,ve come, This far,
Now I can't go Home

So Strange, It's all a Blur
Well Damn, I couldn,t care
Carry the Weight of an Angel,
Trying to Act like a Stranger,
I,ve come, This far,
Now I can't go Home

Bright Lights, Inspire me,
Dark nights, Over the Sea
Carry the Weight of an Angel,
Trying to Act like a Stranger,
I,ve come, This far,
Now I can't go Home

Check in, Before Checking out
About time, That We had our Shout
Carry the Weight of an Angel,
Trying to Act like a Stranger,
I,ve come, This far,
Now I can't go Home
