Track Name: You Did This To Me
You did this to me
In a siege both soft and slow
The venom now runs deep
And the rivers overflow

You did this to me
At the ruin of the day
I still recall the scene
You wore green and I wore grey

You did this to me
Lifted the veil off your intent
Revealed the hole hidden beneath
Down and down it went

You did this to me
As the leaves began to fall
Exposed your heart and all its teeth
While shadows dripped from every wall

We returned to a world of corners
On a sea without a tide
Always trying to go forwards
But only ever moving side to side

And down in the froth and foam
Where we began to sink
I dreamed you'd been sculpted out of precious stone
While I was merely pen and ink

You did this to me
As the mad studied the sane
In all their grim varieties
Their endless shapes and shades

You did this to me
Yeah you did this to me
You did this to me
Yeah you
Track Name: Turn Out The Light
Can you care too much?
You say it depends.
If I poured all the world's love into your cup
Would you ever say 'when'?
All this disarray:
Well it's okay.
Lay these things down on me

The dawn once shone on our happiness.
You rose early each morning to tie the frail fastenings of fondness
While I lay and slept.
You and I
We'll get by
So lay these things down on me

You warmed me
But seldom like the sun.
It came closer to a cold kiss on a warm night
In a building that's burning down.
Me and you:
We ain't got a clue
So lay these things down on me

Take a long hard look at me now
Take a long hard look at me now
Take a long hard look at me now
And I'll be the last thing you see
Before I turn out the light.
