Track Name: Nowhere To Run
In the mouth of the whale I lie
Captured how do I get outside?
Staring at this endless wall
Oh this creature so big, so tall

I've got nowhere to run to
Nowhere to go to now
So dark I cannot see out
Far from the place that I lie
I've got nowhere to run to
Nowhere to go to now

Hoping to sail back tomorrow
Back to a place that I know,
Now I am caught up in trouble
And it's so different for me

I've got nowhere to run to
Nowhere to go to now
So dark I cannot see out
Far from the place that I lie
I've got nowhere to run to
Nowhere to go to now

Now, woh oh oh oh oh
Now, woh oh oh...
Track Name: Finding Out
I've been walking here
Been walking there now tonight
Past the dwellings lived in
The place with the sun I can find
I was hoping to see
Trying to see where it was again
I was here once before
But now I don't know if it was the same

I heard you say

I'm finding out
We're just finding out

Happy to be, trying to be
Somewhere new again
Past the road where you live
The path takes me there I see you again

I heard you say

I'm finding out
We're just finding out

I don't know what I
Can do about this anymore
I can't see you there
I can't see it quite like before

I'm finding out,
We're just finding out...
Track Name: Push And Pull
High, lonesome, drift
Here, it, comes
Follows me around
Everywhere I'll be now

Everything it seems
Falling around me
Nothing seems to be
What it all should mean

Washed out days
Could be here to stay
On your holiday
Life just ain't the same no

Everything it seems
Falling around me
Nothing seems to be
What it all should mean

Push and pull together
In directions I know
Push and pull together
We go, we go, we go

Come and see the day
You'll see me again
Promises that I
Always refrain from

Everything it seems
Falling around me
Nothing seems to be
What it all should mean

Everything it seems
Everything it seems

It doesn't matter
It doesn't matter
At all, at all, at all, at all...
Track Name: Oll Korrect
All the time, I try to find
Something there, something there
Feelings here, over there
I can find, I can find
Leave alone, over there
What I find, what I find

That could become
That could become

Oll korrect
Here with me
Nothing more
For you to see
For you to see

I will try, look and find
What could be there, could be there
Feelings here, over there
I can find, I can find

That could become
That could become

Oll korrect,
Here with me
Nothing more
For you to see
For you to see

Now I'll try, something more
Or less besides
But I don't feel like, something here's
Gonna change the tide

So this time, I'll try to find
Something there, something there
Feelings here, over there
What I find, what I find

That could become
That could become

Oll korrect
Here with me
Nothing more
For you to see
Track Name: Headlights (On)
Headlights on, start to think
Of what we started before
Different things, in my head
Woke me up, open the door

Suddenly now, in a different scene
Everything's gone, lies far from me

Shake me up, talk to me
Push me back, to the floor
Watch me over, here with me
Get me back, like before

Suddenly now, in a different scene
Everything's gone, lies far from me

Far from me, far from me
Me, me

Far from me, far from me
Me, me
