Track Name: Lingua Franca
Drawn, on the floor a line
Lingua franca is this a sign?
Our native tongues are twisted and tied
Will talking untie ‘em
As I am forming a creole, a rapport?
Her endless eyes are mirrors in a hall

Different colours, different eyes
Our lingua franca died
Are we blind?

I carry a hard-back thesaurus –
You carry a knife
Universal grammar got my tongue
Higher and higher we’re balancing on the wire
We are tall
But we’re two dark figures lost
As the night draws in

Different colours, different eyes
Our lingua franca died
Are we blind?
Different colours, different eyes
Our lingua franca died

Are we blind?
Here I hide, cold,
Under the sheets and cry
Different colours, different eyes
Our lingua franca died

Are we blind?
Track Name: Balancing Act
Reality poured in through the window
Light poured out of his heart
Reality poured in through the window
Light poured out of his heart
And through the lens

Farewell
The simple things are hard
Like opening his eyes
Farewell
Things are distorted
And begins his demise

Divide, divide and break out
A spectral array
Divide, divide and break out
Everything grey

Farewell
The simple things are hard
Like opening his eyes
Farewell
He severs involvement in
The things he used to like

Divide, divide and break out
A spectral array
Divide, divide and break out
Everything grey
