The words for our 2007 album
"Powers Of Three"

ALL FALL DOWN

(Is there anyone out there?)

Is there anyone out there,
Step up - throw me a line
Lead me out of the madness
Leave the dark & chaos behind

Sit right down and power up your window on the world
Is that the only way to see

The passion and the poison
And the fury and the fun
Will it lead you to the truth
Or will it stuff your head with junk?

And if they told you to stay, would you be a good dog?
Wrap up and blow you away - could you turn the other cheek?
Only shadows and light
But the puppets pull the strings
And we all fall down
All fall down


(Is there anyone in there?)

Is there anyone in there?
Losing track of the time
Window or mirror?
Samaritan line?

The ray gun burns a picture on the inside of your head
You recognise the staring eyes

The stab of panic freezing
As you see its far too late
You recognise that you've become
Everything you hate

And if they told you to stay, would you be a good dog?
Wrap up and blow you away - could you turn the other cheek?
Only shadows and light
But the puppets pull the strings
And we all fall down
All fall down

CROW FLIES EAST

Crow flies east on the back of the wind
Lend me your eyes for an alternate view

Where do you go?
What do you know?

Show me the world that we've twisted and changed
Take me to places that I've never seen

Where do you go?
What do you know?

Lend me wings to fly away
Into the night
And somewhere in between the madness
Tainted dreams will paint the sadness
Spread your wings and let me fly away

ELEMENTAL

At a certain level, there are forces we control
Deeper forces weak and strong can sway the big dice roll
A cloudy smear is all we know and guess at what's inside
Still there's something deeper down where greater secrets hide

Its under the spiral blueprint
Deeper than blood and bone

Elemental - the mass inside the shell
Elemental - water beneath the well
Elemental - the fire beneath the stone
Elemental - deeper than blood and bone

A B C T P F E then 50 million more
The bases string out endlessly - but still there's something more
C4H2NO3 its carbon's chemistry
Still there's something deeper down that makes up you and me

Its wound in the double helix
Deeper than blood and bone

Elemental - the mass inside the shell
Elemental - water beneath the well
Elemental - the fire beneath the stone
Elemental - deeper than blood and bone

MASTERPLAN

Not for the open minded
Welcome to this game we play
Totalitarian vision
But Charlie's plan was far too great

Now we live with thoughts that facts are make-believe
Deduced for the sinners' end and all that's in between

So let's rewind six thousand years
To the day when they thought it all began
Two different worlds but still the same
But the story's not a scam
It's all part of the masterplan

Don't ask why we're here
When the question's really how
Isaac's constellations
And falling apples to the ground

Take just six days to build the Grand Design?
Or simply take an ape and turn it into Man?

ARGUMENT

Part i
Instrumental

Part ii
What was that?

All your moods are governed
By the phases of the moon
Thought I'd got you covered
But I may have spoke too soon

Hard to take the landscape shifting
After all these years
Find the whole thing crashing in a
Heap around my ears

Left/right/up/down/front/back
Wrong/right/day/night/black/white
What's that? What was that you said?

What was that?


Part iii

Stumbling forwards in spite of myself
The next to be so disappointed
in fortune and wealth

Here am I, nice as pie
Brings a tear to your eye

I got nothing to say
Make em all go away

Not much of a poet, more of a thief
Words are like leaves in the wind
when you lie through your teeth

Here they fly, in your eye
Makes you wish you could cry

I got nothing to say
Make it all go away
Make it all go away

Wipe the tear from your eye
Life's a bitch then you die

I got nothing to say
Make em all go away

Part iv
Instrumental

Part v

And in the night I stand beneath the backstreet light
I read the words that you sent to me
I can take the afternoon
but night time comes around too soon
You can't know what you mean to me
One day soon...

Part vi

One day soon you'll look for me
and all you'll find is memory
a spark of what there used to be
and fading fast

The future's never ours to see
We always talk of memory
Seeing what we want to see
Within our past

Never sure of what to say
Until the moment passed away
Before we know it day by day is gone

Everyday the little fear
The miracles that put me here
Suddenly will disappear
I've got to get some action in my life
Part vii

Coming to in a sea of flesh
Waves of faces crashing round my head
Emmas and Gemmas and ethyls and esters
And pheromones churning a chemical stew

What the hell am I doing here?

Can't touch down
Sink or swim
Going down
I don't hear
What you say
Going down

Pounding sound and shrieking laughter
Think I'll blow my head if I don't leave

What the hell am I doing here?

Can't touch down
Sink or swim
Going down
I don't hear
What you say
Going down

Part viii

Summer's gone and fall is here
Skies are cold and bright and clear
Darling
Takes me back to other times
Other days and other skies
Calling

We were flying so high
Feeling we can't come down
Never felt like before

Always seem to make you cry
But never seem to say goodbye
We don't seem to do that no more

Never need to have to try
To give each other alibis
We don't need to do that no more
No more

Running through Novemberland
You and me were hand in hand
Darling
Takes me back to other skies
Other dreams and other lives
Calling
