Track Name: Stars are Falling (& I'm Hungry)
4AM and you are excommunicated
From my single bed
Trying to ignore you splayed out on all fours
While stealing my bedspread

You and I are complicated
So outdated, overrated
We really should have greeted with goodbye
You never leave however hard I try

Pushed you out the door
Landing on all fours
Content the neighbours or the mice would find you
Seems like seconds pass when tapping on the glass
You've climbed the drain with one hand holding blooms

You and I are complicated
So outdated, overrated
We really should have greeted with goodbye
You never leave however hard I try

I dance disguised, you find me
Claiming I'm routinely starved as I eat falling stars for breakfast
Why won't you go, just kneel down
Convince me that I'm fine
Release the stars to shine

You and I are complicated
So outdated, overrated
We really should have greeted with goodbye
You never leave however hard I try
Track Name: You in Mind
One of few with a name
One of many whose motives changed in script
Old hands scrawl the shame
I own the death of the faithful king's conscript

But Samson and Delilah know
It takes a long time for hair to grow
So I wander back to bed
With you in mind instead

Stole your wife and my womb
Our hero's story righted by decree
Servants cries fill the room
He will go to him, but you will not come back to me

Lifeless babe laid on the floor
But it was you I was calling for
So I wander back to bed
With you in mind instead

One of few with a name
One of many whose children line the age
And we shoulder the blame
Broken bones for the rites of a holy sage

But Samson and Delilah know
It takes a long time for hair to grow
So I wander back to bed
With you in mind
You in mind instead
