Track Name: Old Churches
He walked past the old churches for sale on the ormeau road
and watched them as they stood so still in their garden overgrown
and he had a look out back and found another just like him
searching for a difference in a place he'd already been

eyes were sunsets red and blue, pastel, polished old cars
skin was pale but lips were a luscious scarlet, fresh cut scars
and they moved into the cellar joined by their hands then at their teeth,
covering your eyes is sometimes the only way to see

the town they searched and searched but never came across the pair
I heard them say they did but i dont really think they cared.
Track Name: A Letter To Mark Loughrey
Mark I've been listening to your record and thinking about Berlin
and our two throats, calling out, singing
that song we swore we would father but, just never took the chance
maybe spring time, I will visit, and talk of our romance

with the truth you have accepted, but I cannot get down
what will be sang to my cherished when I'm put in the ground?

Train Under Water? Cayote Song? Ship In A Bottle? Light Pollution?

Mark I've been listening to your record and thinking about dying
When you're here lets put a day aside and do some writing
