Track Name: The Boy In The Well
The boy in the well, I'm falling, I'm falling
Ten fingers in hell 'cos I'm crawling, I'm crawling
There's no-one to tell but I'm calling, I'm calling
The boy in the well

I think it's the day
My watch keeps ticking away
But I can't read the time
Shadows crawl
Climbing the walls
But now the light's fading into lines
It could be night but I just can't tell

And I'm falling, I'm falling
Ten fingers in hell 'cos I'm crawling, I'm crawling
There's no-one to tell but I'm calling, I'm calling
The boy in the well

I'm not short of a drink
Water to wash and time to think
About how I'll pass away
I started it out
Staying calm and breathing it out
But now I'm breathing it in
I'm scared and scratching when I start to give in to this hell

I'm falling, I'm falling
Ten fingers in hell 'cos I'm crawling, I'm crawling
There's no-one to tell but I'm calling, I'm calling
The boy in the well

Recalling summer turning to dust
Trawling for water with a bucket of rust
Counting the falls of pennies and calls
I remember thinking clear as a bell
Did the devil scrape the walls as he fell
Track Name: Nothing
Was that goodbye? Was that our last dance?
When did you know that was our last chance?
How hard did you try to keep us together?
You hurt me now, you hurt me forever

Give me only bitter words
Feed the way my feelings hurt
Don't give me softly spoken
Don't give me soothing sense
Don't give me any sense

Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all
Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all

These are my songs cut from the heart
I write in blood to tear you apart
No, they'll never be another chance for me
It's everything, this is my last hurrah

Give me only pissy words
Cut me down to commonplaces
Don't tell me I'm still young
Don't tell me that my chance will come
Don't give me any sense

Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all
Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all

Push forward, yeah, keep trying
Or just get busy dying
Your life is what you make it
Just one thing not to forget

Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all
Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all
Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all
Nothing is ever all or nothing is ever all or nothing at all
Track Name: Sleeping In The Day
There's still coffee in the jug but it tastes bitter
Since I gave up milk when the fridge had no more in it
Nothing seems to wake me up these days
Every sunrise through my window comes out grey

The kitchen clock, it must be slow
You're gone but it's not time to go
And I've run out of things to say
I'm sleeping in the day

As I shamble through my memories of you
It's lucky that my hands know what to do
Roll another smoke before the last one's out
It's one drug or another, hand to mouth

The kitchen clock is surely wrong
'Cos it's not time and yet you're gone
You've taken all my songs away
I'm sleeping in the day

All the empty mugs and ashtrays bring me down
It's as much as I can do to watch them drown
It's getting harder not to reach for empty space
When I stretch my fingertips to touch your face

I don't believe the kitchen clock
It's been so long since my time stopped
The cat just sits and stares and asks me why
I'm sleeping in the day

I don't believe the kitchen clock
It's been so long since my heart stopped
You've taken all my songs away
I'm sleeping in the day
I'm sleeping in the day
Track Name: Spell
She said go fast
She said slow
She said slow down
Don't pass go

I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
Leave her alone, boy
They said it to me
She will destroy you
And bring misery
And we'll see

They told me about her
They told tales
But I can't hear them
In her spell

I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
Leave her alone, boy
They said it to me
She will destroy you
And bring misery
And we'll see

I'm in the gutter
Fallen down
She betrayed me
Took my crown

I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
Leave her alone, boy
They said it to me
She will destroy you
And bring misery
And we'll see

And we'll see

I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
I wish I could tell you how it all went wrong
Leave her alone, boy
They said it to me
She will destroy you
And bring misery
And we'll see

And we'll see

I wish I could tell you
