Track Name: Mercury in Transit
Mercury in Transit

With wings on your heels and solar wind in your hair
You dance around to face the Sun, No time for subtle scares
A message to the world it seems, the one that doesn't care
Will they listen to your warning in transition they appear

"What comes around, comes around," you tell them as you fade
Evolving, revolving, spinning out your day
You wonder why nobody cares, nor listens to a word you say
Your message told above the clouds, it's price they'll have to pay

In transition, in transition, moving on
In transition, in transition, counting on
a transition to a better world the journey comes undone
But the mercury is rising, so it's time to look beyond the sun

No wind in your sails, and death around you draped
You travel 'cross the ocean waves the torment to escape
The message from the world: Your life you'll have to scrape
And never heed the warning of transition taking shape

"What's going down's going down!" you cry out as a slave
Churning, returning, the sea becomes your grave
You wonder why nobody cares, nor offers any word to save
Your message lost below the sea a crisis for the brave
Your message lost below the sea a price no one should crave

In transition, in transition, moving on
In transition, in transition, counting on
a transition to a better life the journey comes undone
And the mercury is rising, so it's time to watch
beyond the sun (look beyond the sun)
Track Name: Time Lapse
Time Lapse

When you come right down to it, it was never going to last
Days and weeks and months went by but years would never pass
Words had never failed me...at least not until today
But anger rose and doors were closed, seemed nothing more to say

Just one thing...I really ought to touch
So, sit right down, don't turn your head, won't beat around the bush
There's angry words and painful deeds, it's all a crying shame
The thing is that I love you and we're none of us to blame

Come on, come on, come on, come on
Let's take another shot
Just focus on the day today
Leave everything we're not

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Let's give it our best shot
Just focus on this day today
Give-it everything we've got
Track Name: Radio Love (Radio mix)
Radio Love (Radio Edit)

I'm writing a song they can play on the radio
I'm playing a game with the words but I want to know
Will you sing along or sway in a way that shows?
That there's a chance you'll hear what I want you to know

You can't tune out the words
that I sing as the music flows
Though static comes and goes
My love it only grows

Radio love, listen to the late night show
Radio love, tuning in to what you know
Radio love, catch the rhythm of my hope
Radio love, it only goes to show

Did you hear my song they played on the radio?
It had the words I wrote just to let you know
Want you to sing along in a way that shows
That there's a chance we're in tune and our love can grow

You can't tune out the words
that I sing as the music flows
Though static comes and goes
My love it only grows
My love it only grows

Radio love, listen to the late night show
Radio love, tuning in to what you know
Radio love, catch the rhythm of my hope
Radio love, it only goes to show
It only goes to show
Track Name: P.O.V.
P.O.V.

Oh, can you see the world as I see it?
Standing close to the water's edge when I noticed,
the last thing on my mind
Hadn't thanked you for our time together,
hadn't thanked you for being so kind

Something chased away my feelings,
chased away my foolish dreams
Something's lost but I don't see that anything's quite the way it's meant to seem

Can you see the world like I see it,
And does it look as grey to you?
Is it any wonder I'm in the habit
Of trying to change your point of view?
Oh do you see the world like I see it?
Is the light still fading on you?
There's still a chance for us to grab it
And bring the colours back into view

Walking back from the water's edge,
now there's nothing, there's nothing on my mind
I hadn't felt that we could make it at all I'm the fool,
I'm the fool when you're unkind

Can you see the world like I see it,
And does it look as grey to you?
Is it any wonder I'm in the habit
Of trying to change your point of view?
Oh do you see the world like I see it?
Is the light still fading on you?
There's still a chance for us to grab it
And bring the colours back into view
Track Name: A Word to the Wise
A Word to the Wise

Sitting back on hope and despair
Not really the place you want to be
No, not anywhere

Checking out without a care
Another day, another road
Won't bear your heavy load

Even though the story's told a thousand times or maybe more
You feel you're the only one, who ever cries
A word to the wise, there's no relief, no, no release in the bottle
Just reflections of the stranger you see in your eyes

A word to the wise
A word to the wise

No need to despise yourself you see as you change
You can walk away, but you might, but you might find it happens just the same
Track Name: Time to Unwind (It's Over)
Time to Unwind (It's Over)

I saved your life you nearly drowned
On the river bank, where Martha fell
You turned to me and then you frowned
Said I don't believe in Heaven and I don't believe in Hell

Catching up with all the things that we thought unreal
I know that won't appeal to those hoping for a little more
You turned away your wounds to heal
Said I didn't think this way when I was walking through that door

It's not over till the last tear has dried, all the acid's neutralised and the anger has subsided
When it's all over, don't you want to set aside a little time to unwind when it's all over

I sailed away I nearly drowned
On one of those seven seas, I really couldn't tell
I failed to say I was neither lost nor found
Still don't believe in Heaven, but I sure saw my own Hell

It's not over till the last tear has dried, all the acid's neutralised and the anger has subsided
When it's all over, don't you want to set aside a little time to unwind when it's all over

A little time to unwind when it's all over
There's still time to unwind, it's over
Time to unwind, it's over
Track Name: Nothing to be sorry for?
0 2 B Sorry 4 (Nothing to be sorry for?)

It's a well-worn path we take each day
The fighting maps our lives
You cast a stone, the glass it breaks
The home we had divides

And time moves on we separate
The pain it blights our lives
You cast the steel, my heart it aches
For a love we can't revive

It's a careworn child that takes each day
As if it were their last
They cast the mould with risks they take
Leave traces in their past

As they move on they instigate
The future of their lives
They steel the cast the passion play
With love they will survive

Now there's nothing to feel sorry for
I've heard it all before
There is no reason
to deny the pain

Nothing to be sorry for
I heard it all the time
There's nothing left
so keep an open mind

It's a frightened world we see each day
We're running for our lives
Don't cast the stone, don't shoot the gun
Lay down the bloody knives

Can we move on and relegate
The pain that blights our times
Just blunt the steel, my heart won't break
The love we must revive

Nothing to feel sorry for
I've heard it all before
There's nothing left
but to keep an open mind

There's nothing to say sorry for
we denied it at the time
Nothing left, no place that you can hide


Now there nothing to feel sorry for
I've heard it all before
There's nothing
but to keep an open mind

Is there nothing to say sorry for?
We denied it at the time
Nothing left
no place you can hide

Nothing to feel sorry for
I've heard it all before
There is no reason
to deny the pain

Nothing to be sorry for
I heard it at the time
There's nothing left
so keep an open mind

There's nowhere left
So no place left to hide
There's nothing left
There's no place you can hide
