Thin Air 04:23
THIN AIR Words & Music © P. Pascoe IT’S A MYSTERY HOW WE'VE HELD TOGETHER SO LONG -NOT WHY IT’S FALLING APART WE’RE SO LONELY HERE IN THE DARK DONT KNOW WHERE WE BELONG - GOT TO GO BACK TO THE START NOW WE’RE HERE WE’RE LIVING IN FEAR YET EVERYONE CAN DO GOOD AND THREATS HANG IN THE AIR LIKE A WASP AT THE DOOR GIVEN CREDENCE BY THE MEDIA ANOTHER CHANGE ON THE WIND, A DIFFERENT KIND OF TACK WE’LL FOLLOW OUR NOSE TO THE END OF THE SHOW LONG FORGOTTEN DREAMS STREAM INTO OUR MINDS DONT YOU WONDER HOW THEY SEEM TO KNOW WHERE TO GO FROM HERE DO THEY COME FROM THIN AIR? SO FRAGMENTED A HOLY DUDE COULD LIVE OVER THE FENCE AND NEVER AFFECT OUR MOOD AND WE DAMAGE OUR SELVES HURTING EVERYONE FOR ALL MY OPTIMISM AND ANALYTICAL THINKING I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO CLEAR THIS SOUP DO THEY COME FROM THIN AIR? WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

At What Cost 03:32
AT WHAT COST? Words & Music © P. Pascoe ALWAYS THE STORY’S THE SAME , JUST ADDING FUEL TO THE FLAME HE SAID THAT SHE SAID AND SHE SAID THAT HE SAID AHH ALWAYS SEEMS SUCH A SHAME , NEARING THE END OF THE GAME SHE SAID THAT HE SAID AND HE SAID THAT SHE SAID AHH WHERE IS THE LOVE THAT WE FOUND? WHERE IS THE LOVE THAT IS LOST? TURNING IT ROUND AND ROUND , AT WHAT COST? HOPING THAT FRIENDSHIP REMAINS, YET WHAT POINT IF NOTHING IS GAINED? TRAVELING IN CIRCLES JUST DRAGGING THIS PAIN UP AGAIN WONDERING: AT WHAT COST? LOVING YOU HAS COME AT A COST
