Track Name: Pedestal
We will praise your beauty, we will fall for your charm.
We know that underneath your lies you mean us no harm.
We will bow to your greatness, we will beg on our knees,
we will let you do and say whatever you please.

But we know the truth, yes we know it all.
You may be on a pedestal but one day you will fall.
But we know the truth, yes we know it all.
Stay on your pedestal cuz some day you will fall.

Bask in our glory, won't you please approve our lies?
Tell us we're worthy, please hear our cries.
Tell us all your stories, even though they're of no truth.
Nothing of any meaning ever comes from you.

But we know the truth, yes we know it all.
You may be on a pedestal but one day you will fall.
We know the truth, yes we know it all.
Stay on your pedestal cuz some day you will fall.

We will praise your beauty, we will fall for your charm.
We know that underneath your lies you mean us no harm.
We will bow to your greatness, we will beg on our knees,
we will let you do and say whatever you please.

But we know the truth, yes we know it all.
You may be on a pedestal but one day you will fall.
But we know the truth, yes we know it all.
Stay on your pedestal cuz some day you will fall.
we know the truth, yes we know it all.
Stay on your pedestal cuz some day soon my friend you will fall.
Track Name: Family Touch
Tears drop on the water,
Tears fall in my glass,
The night it seems so silent now,
The noise it seems to last.

You’ve got a way with words,
You’ve got that family touch.

Oh sister lend your hand to me,
Oh mother only you can set us free.

A heart that’s full of longing,
A mind that’s full of fear,
My eyes see what there is to see,
My ears hear what they hear,

You’ve got a way with words,
You’ve got that family touch.

Oh sister lend your hand to me,
Oh mother only you can set us free.

I saw a shooting star,
I wished that you could see
The way we’re living,
Is not the way it was meant to be
Track Name: Millie
Millie read his note book , Millie couldn't help but look.
The message said I love you so, and Millie couldn't let it go.

Millie found some photos in a drawer, of a time that was before.
Before she even knew this man, why should that make her sad?

He said 'Millie, Millie, this is my past. Millie, Millie, this is a time that didn't last.'

Millie saw him standing on the stair, he couldn't have known that she was there,
he whispered that he missed someone, so Millie had to run and run and run and run.
Run Millie run, Millie run and run.

'Millie, Millie, please don't be mad, Millie Millie, I never meant to make you sad.
Millie, Millie, she means nothing to me. Millie, Millie, you're the only girl for me.
Track Name: Skip
Oh I tried to cheer you up but you just wouldn't stop crying.
No. I tried to calm you down, but you just wouldn't stop crying.
So I said : 'Take my hand and follow me to the house by the sea,
and when we get there you will know there's nowhere you would rather go.
Take my hand and we will fly, over mountains, across the sky,
and when you've seen that world my friend, you'll never want the day to end.'

Dadadadadddaaaa

'Why don't you skip down the road with me? It will make you feel so free,
and when you've seen that world my friend you'll never want the day to end.
Skip skip skip down the road with me, it will make you feel so free,
and when you've seen that world my friend you'll never want the day to end.'

Dadadadadaa

'Oh the sun in the sky may be your friend, but how would you like the day to end?
The sun in the sky may be your friend, but how would you like the day to end?
Skip skip skip down the road with me, it will make you feel so free,
and when you've seen that world my friend you'll never want the day to end.'

Track Name: Harold Rithla
Hooray for Harold Rithla he's an ordinary guy,
With a face like a monkey and a mouth like a sigh,
His wife's waiting at the end of the line,
Washing dishes and keeping time,
With an old time tune and a piece of her mind,
She's waiting and waiting for Harry to come home.

Harry has a job and a car with a badge,
He has all the things his father never had,
A brand new coat and a seat on the train,
An old school umbrella to keep out the rain,
And a wife who's waiting wearing his favourite dress,
And she still loves him more or less,
So Harry's on his way home.

Hooray for Harold Rithla,
Hey Hey, Hooray,
Hooray for Harold Rithla,
Hey Hey, he's an ordinary guy.
Track Name: I'm Not Magical
Hand me a stone and I'll skim it across the water,
until it lands on the riverbed with all the other stones.
I'm not magical you see, I'm not magical, I'm just me.
Take me or leave me.

Give me a rose and I will keep it growing,
until it starts to wilt and petals fall to the floor.
I'm not magical you see, I'm not magical, I'm just me.
Take me or leave me.

But I promise you this, if you gave me your heart, I would never let it go,
never let it go, never let you go.

I'm not magical you see, I'm not magical, I'm just me.
Take me or leave me.
Track Name: Her Secret
He's off around the world again,
His mind took him away.
He's off around the world again,
if only he knew why he should stay.
He should stay.

She's the one who's left behind again,
She's the one who's all alone.
She's the one who's left behind again.
He would have stayed if only he's known.
If only he'd known.

She's got a secret, haunting her mind.
Her secret hides her voice, she's thrown it all away,
thrown it all away for the sake of the wrong choice.

He's off around the world again,
His mind took him away.
He's off around the world again,
if only he knew why he should stay.
He should stay.

She's got a secret, haunting her mind.
Her secret hides her voice, she's thrown it all away,
thrown it all away for the sake of the wrong choice.

Her secret hides her voice, she's thrown it all away,
thrown it all away for the sake of the wrong choice.
Track Name: Count My Teeth
Two arms, two legs,
And a bump on the head,
Mean nothing today,
Will get in the way,
Fold me away,
Find me some day,
In your arms.

Count my teeth with the tip of my tongue,
Find relief when I’m coming undone,
You won’t see me though I’m wide awake,
Trying, Trying to be seen.

Breath in, breath out,
The sorrow and doubt,
One page at a time,
Fill life line by line,
Nothing today will get in the way,
In your arms.

See dawn light divide the wall,
Paint a door where the shadows fall,
Plant my red raw nose in rug by the fire,
Waiting, waiting to be seen.
Track Name: Nothing Can Stop Us
Tell all your friends the day has come,
The day we've all been waiting for,
Tell all your friends we've finally won,
And nothing can stop us today.

The shouting, the fighting, the blood and the rust,
Were over when the day begun
The shouting, the fighting, the blood and the rust,
Are finally starting to fade

And the leaves fell down on the ground

Break down your demons but don't break down,
Just try to see the other side,
Break down your demons but don't break down,
Nothing can stop us today.

And the leaves fell down on the ground.
