Track Name: Hide The Cracks
JUMP BACK
SHARK ATTACK
FALL BACK
HIDE THE CRACKS

Swim swim against my current
I have to try hard not to go into the depths of me
'cause I'd be lonely, that's where the sharks be
feeding on vulnerability

We've been here before
They laugh, they point, they won't understand what you're trying to say so
JUMP BACK
SHARK ATTACK
FALL BACK
HIDE THE CRACKS

Quiet voice, don't you risk it
like a biscuit it might taste sweet but it's going to crumble
if it's not perfect, it's not worth it
sing and you will sound the fool
Track Name: Charlie
He huffs, he puffs, Charlie goes for the blow
may not be christmas, but here comes the snow,
He huffs and he puffs, Charlie sings us a verse
up on the table, he's forgotten the words.

Charlie is free, he can feel it in his soul
nobody knows which way he's gonna go...
Tonight will he be in a fight
where they're punching out his bloody lights
Or tonight will he fall in love,
in the backroom of a seedy club

Midnight marauder, every day's a circus show
confesses his love as Colombian blood drips down from his nose,
A midnight marauder, such a charming Charlie
talks with so much fire, he almost pulled me

He huffs and he puffs Charlie goes for the blow
he's drunk so much tonight he's out cold.
