Track Name: Hole
There's a hole
In the street
Where my lover should be
There's a hole
Between my arms
Where she should be resting
There's a hole
In my world
When it takes you away
So please, my darling, please stay

Though your breath
Covers my skin
I can't let you in, no
Though your breath
Covers my skin
I can't let you in, no
Though your breath
Covers my skin
I can't let you in
Can't let you
'Cos I know

There's a hole
In the street
Where my lover should be
There's a hole
Between my arms
Where she should be resting
There's a hole
In my world
When it takes you away
My heart is crying, "Please stay"
My heart is crying, "Please stay"
My heart is crying, "Please stay"
Track Name: I Swear I'll Be Fine
First lover, best friend
I did believe we'd stay till the end
Till I abandoned us with just one kiss
First lover, best friend
I blame myself why did I pretend
That what we had was something I'd ever miss

Even the dark feels better on these lonely nights
Don't worry 'bout me
I'll be fine
Even the dark tastes better on these lonely nights
Don't worry 'bout me
I'll be fine

Ex-lover, ex-friend
You threw my mind round the bend
There's no reason to crawl back into that cage of silent cruelty
Ex-lover, ex-friend
Your clever words will never mend
What we've drained dry of dignity

I never needed you
I never needed you
I'll never need you
I'd sooner bite off my hand than beg you to pull me through

Even the dark feels better on these lonely nights
Don't worry 'bout me
I'll be fine
Even the dark tastes better on these lonely nights
Don't worry 'bout me
I'll be fine
I've heard that to a hollow heart
The needle will be kind
Don't come back for me
I swear I'll be fine
Track Name: Wrecked
Girl met girl
My odd story unfurled
But they wouldn't hear it
My world kissed hers
And every inch
Till cowardice killed it
Now I'm girl without my girl
And I'm strangling myself
On my shame
I've choked myself
To blank and back
My lips still chase her name

There's splinters in my brain
And a burning in my veins

I'm falling far enough to find you
'Cos if I break I'll be beside you
I once fell so hard for you
But now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
To get you back
Get you back

With every glass
Every fresh bruise
I paint dizzy new harm
I think I've convinced myself
I can spin back into your arms
So I smile at yet
Another stranger
With manic brazen calm
I've danced and danced
So long it hurts
But maybe this time will be the charm

There's splinters in my brain
And a burning in my veins

I'm falling far enough to find you
'Cos if I break I'll be beside you
I once fell so hard for you
But now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
Oh I'm falling far enough to find you
'Cos if I break I'll be beside you
I once fell so hard for you
But now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
To get you back

Get you back
Get you back
Get you back

I'm falling far enough to find you
'Cos if I break I'll be beside you
I once fell so hard for you
But now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
Oh I'm falling far enough to find you
'Cos if I break I'll be beside you
I once fell so hard for you
But now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
Oh now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
Now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
Now I've got to fall
Harder, harder
To get you back
Track Name: Lone Neon Sign
I spied an angel
But alas she was not sent for me
She got tangled with a brute
He says he loves her tenderly

Oh I bite my tongue
Every time the bastard makes her cry
It kills me but it's clear
She'll have no other in her sights

I'm the Lone Neon Sign
As the roads are swallowed up by night
If you need to find your way
I'll be here

I have her by my side
Yet she's never here
The way I wish she could be
She even rests her head
Against my soul
She must know how I feel

If she does then she's a bitch
This one way street has drained me dry
But I'm helpless to step away
All I can do is sigh

I'm the Lone Neon Sign
As the roads are swallowed up by night
If you need to find your way
I'll be here

And in the deafening dark
Though I have no hold on your heart
You can take my hand
Till we get you back to your lucky man

I'm the Lone Neon Sign
As the roads are swallowed up by night
If you need to find your way
I'll be here
If you need to find your way
I'll be here
Track Name: Sleepers' Night Railway
Momma I can scared
To close my eyes
The eyes of my bear
Won't glitter as bright
I don't think he'll see
What I see at night
And he can't protect me
If it's outside his dark furred sight

So at midnight I climb down
Through the floorboards
Sink deep
To the Sleepers' Night Railway
That charters your sleep
Its carriages grey
The rails coated in algae

Momma one dream
Was filled with pale lights
The air was choked
With a stranger's cry
His face was like yours
But not yours his fright
With trembling hands
He clutched at his fading life

So at midnight I climbed down
Through the floorboards
Sank deep
The Sleepers' Night Railway
Had left without me
My heart a cold grey
My bones coated in algae
No lights on my journey
For dead are the stars in the bay
Track Name: Mad Mad Maggie
Mad Mad Maggie
Walks the streets alone
She's got a little baggie
For her dead dog's bones
The people leave her be
They say she wouldn't hurt a fly
But her fits are quite a sight
When a pale moon's high

She cries
There's a man five steps from my heels
No one can see him
But I can feel his gaze
It never leaves the back of my head
Please believe me
Or tonight I'll be dead

Mad Mad Maggie
Was such a pretty thing
Other girls would envy
How her dark eyes gleamed
Then the nightmare ate her up
And spat out this mad shell
That looks out at the world
And sees nothing but hell

There's a man
Five steps from my heels
No one can see him
But I can feel his gaze
It never leaves the back of my head
Please believe me
Or tonight I'll be dead

Mad Mad Maggie
Is nowhere to be found
No more is her shadow
Dragging 'cross the grounds
They went up to her house
There was nobody there
But they swore they heard the empty house
Whisper, "Beware."

It cries
There's a man just inches from your heels
You'll never see him
But he's quite real
His fingers are itching to get round your neck
Hate to say I told you so
But now you're next
Track Name: Electric
I'm your electric flower
You can light me up
Or let me wither at your whim
I'm your electric thunder
So sound me out
I'll swallow those doubts
Before they begin

I'm your electric lover
So just plug me into your heart
And we'll run forever
So please short-circuit my-
Short-circuit my love
Short-circuit my love

I'm your electric honey
Honey, pour me out
And let me drizzle on your tongue
I'm your electric army
So send me out
I'll knock all those bastards down

I'm your electric lover
So just plug me into your heart
And we'll run forever
So please short-circuit my-
Short-circuit my love
Short-circuit my love

They say the gates of your mind
Won't open for little toys like me
They say the gates of your mind
Won't open for little girls like me
But I say if it's all just a game
Then why can't we play
I said if it's all just a game
Then why can't we play

I'm your electric lover
So just plug me into your heart
And we'll run forever
So please short-circuit my-
Short-circuit my-

We could be electric
Short-circuit my-
We could be electric
Short-circuit my-
We could be electric
Short-circuit my love
