Greg Ebdon Tough choice for favourite track, but intelligent astrophysics references and that big crescendo sound win it. We Should Have Killed Quaid on Mars is bloody fantastic (especially Zander's falling then rising note at the end, christ), but gets its own single release. Fire In The Fall is screamingly good, Time Is Timeless is catchy, 2001 is a classic, but this is just such a beautiful cooldown at the end of the record. Favorite track: Hard Off The Line.

Track Name: 2001
Line them up, in the streets,
Staring down, at their feet
Put your hoods up, with a blank stare
Knock at the door theres no one there
Walk the line to the end of the road
Try to shout but go unheard
Help me please, help me please
No ones listening to me
The foots steps come down hard on my back
Pushing me down into the cracks
Face down, head in the mud
Try to speak, its only blood
Wipe the blood sweat and tears
From your brow, broken ears
Decisions come, decisions go
You made your mind up long ago

I’m so sorry love, im so sorry love
Im not in the least bit sorry at all
Keep banging drums keep banging drums
I with this was true but I is not, it is not.

Many a monster wears the form of a man
The trick is to the catch him if you can
We’re all callers in the booth of time
Lost in the moment please don’t mind
Ill stay as long as I can
With my heart in your hand
To have and to hold forever again
But still we continue to the end
Keep banging drums against my head
Like my temples are made of lead
2001` youre my monolith
im your monkey just let me live
it goes back so long in time
our histories are intertwined
but decisions come and decisions go
you made your mind up long ago

I’m so sorry love, im so sorry love
Im not in the least bit sorry at all
Keep banging drums keep banging drums
I with this was true but I is not, it is not.

This funeral stone
Will become my home
Id like to say I will stay alive
It’s a choice that we make
The feeling we get
Will never compare we wont get it back
So put out your fire
Surrender your tokes
Not with our backs against the ropes
Correct me if I'm wrong but

I’m so sorry love, im so sorry love
Im not in the least bit sorry at all
Keep banging drums keep banging drums
I with this was true but I is not, it is not.

And these cries have not stopped me to spark up.
because these feelings are all that I am.
and these pleas have not made it to my heart,
because this is what I am, this is what i am.
Track Name: Fire In The Fall
I guess that i am yet to be controlled and i can’t stand it
The hatred that fills me is not getting old, feel so confounded
I hold you under and as you claw my face
I’m struggling to breathe
No more bubbles escape your lips, you should have never lied to me.

Your face, my scars
Our pain, my life
Your thoughts, our fights
Elates, behind
The weight, held down
No place, no time
Don’t stop, hoping
Stay close

Fire in the fall
Fire in the fall
The leaves on trees are burning

And here’s a few things i recommend,
Gains somebody’s trust and then you’ll maybe make a friend
And heart and minds will take the blame, and i will take the fall
Just look back around there’s nothing at all

Fire in the fall
Fire in the fall
The leaves on trees are burning
Track Name: Time Is Timeless
I try so hard, so hard to let you go
Your grip is so tight, around my throat.
But there you lay, calling me
You look so sweet, but so damn deadly.
Plant a kiss, smack on my face
My lips embrace and i regret the taste.
Your cold black heart, pressed in my hands
Can't let you go, this time.


Save me and i hope that i, can be there in the end.
Save me and i hope that i, can be there in the end.
(Zander - I hope i can be there in the end)

Mother, father, help me please,
Ween me off this tarry teat.
Can you feel the fire, burning in my lungs?
This girl has left me wholly undone.
The darkness in her heart and venom in her bite,
Holding you close with no respite

Save me and i hope that i, can be there in the end.
Save me and i hope that i, can be there in the end.
(Zander - I hope i can be there in the end)


Our time is timeless, our time is now.
Our timeless, so take a bow!


Save me and i hope that i, can be there in the end.
Save me and i hope that i, can be there in the end.
(Zander - I hope i can be there in the end)
Track Name: We Should Have Killed Quaid On Mars
Stop, drop and roll, with the punches
Can you feel the flames licking at my heels
See the scars on my feet
Cause I’ve been pushing now for days
… with the punches
Can you feel the wind whipping past my ears
Cause I’m kicking up a storm, that will last for years

Sometimes i will break the silence
Sometimes i just sit there and pretend

Stop, drop and roll, I’m the lightning
Ill strike you down where you will stand
Don’t hold your hands up high
I’m raining down
… I’m the thunder
Beating out down now from the deep
I sound loud in your ears, I’m the heartbeat beneath

Stop, drop and roll,
It's a failsafe,
Stop the outbreak,
I guess it's too late.

We are all sons of Tyrell, can’t you see me?
Sat on tannhauser gate, watching sea beams.
We are all moments lost in time.
Like tears in rain, time to die.

Sometimes i will break the silence
Sometimes i just sit there and pretend

Stop, drop and roll,
It's a fail safe,
Stop the outbreak,
I guess it's too late.
Track Name: Hard Off The Line
Hard off the line, gaining a head start
Watching the sky, finding the north star
A star light typhoon, black holes and quasars
Swallow the moon, breaking it apart
Hard off the line, where did we come from, when is it time
Darkness between us, hard off the line
Silver and gold crown, silver and gold crown.

Never tired, when you want to sleep
So drink up and let your conscience breathe
Never heard, when you need relief
So look up and live relentlessly

Honest to god, who broke the silence
Changing the sky, changing the science
Mapping the eyes, the belt of orion
Only a part, whats that implying
Never as small as when you are trying
To look for some purpose, but the purpose is hiding
Hard off the line, believe what you want to
It echoes no sound, eyes on the ground.

Never tired, when you want to sleep
So drink up and let your conscience breathe
Never heard, when you need relief
So look up and live relentlessly

Hard off the line, gaining a head start
Watching the sky, finding the north star
A skylight typhoon, black holes and quasars
Swallow the moon, breaking it apart
Hard off the line, where did we come from, when is it time
Darkness between us, hard off the line
Silver and gold crown, silver and gold crown.

Never tired, when you want to sleep
So drink up and let your conscience breathe
Never heard, when you need relief
So look up and live relentlessly

Dark the night, black the sky
Shine the light, in my minds eye
