Track Name: chains
I've got no time for garbage bins
I've got no time for you
I've got no time for rusty tins
All that I know is true are
Rotten apples and life that's dead
Inside my decaying head

I've been a maggot for so long
I think it's time to change
I've been a maggot for so long
I think I need some space

I've got no time to cry or weep
I've got no time to be
I've got no time for rest or sleep
One thing I cannot see is
How I came to be this way
Who cares if I don't stay?

I've been a maggot for so long
I think it's time to change
I've been a maggot for so long
I think I need some...
I need to lose these chains

If I die and my bones rot
To earth from which they came
Then let them lie and hate me not
I'm not the ones to blame
I have tried to change anew
This is all that I can do 'cause

I've been a maggot for so long
I think it's time to change
I've been a maggot for so long
I think I need some space
Track Name: exploring in the dark
The stars don't try to hide, they saturate the night
Eyes are blind, sky is stark, exploring in the dark

I wander in and out, forgot to bring a light
Running fast through the park, exploding in the dark

I saw a door, I wanted to cry, I saw the genie up in the sky
Unattainable, out of reach, all I want is one more wish
I saw the spirits, I know they heard, one glance is fleeting, no final word
And in the morning I am blind

The void devours the sun, pursue me into flight
Eyes are blind, sky is stark, exploring in the dark
Eyes are blind, sky is stark, exploding in the dark
Track Name: jangle doll
See me in your garden, digging up some fun
Feel me in your pocket, searching for the sun

You don't think it's so bad, I don't think you know

Scare me in your bedroom, see what I have become
Hear me in your closet, looking for a gun

Don't take it so hard, don't take it so

I always knew you'd find me in here, in your secret sacred home
Sitting next to the teddy bear, where else could I go?

Taken from me, all that I see
Has been taken from me this time

No I'm not abnormal, although I seem to be
I can touch your secrets, they're right in front of me

You don't think it's so bad, I don't think you know

If you look me over you'll see the scars I wear
Like the careless stitching upon the teddy bear

Don't take it so hard, don't take it so

And though I always bounce up and down on my worn elastic rope
I'll never get to the end of the carpet in the hall

Taken from me, all that I see
Has been taken from me this time

See me in your garden, going for a stroll
Hear me in your memory, I am your jangle doll
Track Name: unspoken
You can't always see the way
Sorrow is not here to stay
You can't always understand
What you're holding in your hand

When the hurting gets to you
There isn't much more you can do
I know fingers of the pain
Reach into your heart and brain

When the sorrow gets you down
Come around

I don't always realise
What goes on behind those eyes
But even though you might not say
I will listen anyway

When the sorrow gets you down
Come around
