Track Name: The Heart Toll
I'm going down, I'm going down. I'm going down, I'm going down.

And the morning brings the heart toll with the words that you said, 'cause the chains you see around you are all in your head.

Don't come around, don't make a single sound. I'm going down, I'm going down.

And it feels just like this life is rushing by, and it feels just like I've reached the edge of time.

Feel the world close up around you, life isn't what you thought at all. You just reflect the ones around you. For me it's you or none at all.

You're going down, you're going down. You're going down, you're going down.

And it feels just like I'm drifting further out to sea, 'cause a man who won't love quickly loves too deeply.

Feel the world close up around me, I guess that this is our goodbye. I'm left here feeling you eclipsed me, I guess you couldn't live a lie. Our lives are broken into moments, of revelation and of change. I guess I'm preaching the converted, to be saved does not mean caged.
Track Name: Running To Keep Up
Lover we're dying before our time dark eyes sparkle like pearls before swine. Plans within plans and our love just left behind, but this is my life a million tearful nights.

Lover this life will come and go, running to keep up with your ghost. Give me a chance to move through this great divide. 'Cause it takes time for a life to redefine.
Track Name: Ghost Clouds
I came out to the city, up to the square. Winter's all around us freezing the air. Ghost clouds haunt the sky, the winds of change still darken your eyes. Sadness snows on the streets here. Will the future hold you and I?

I looked out of the window, I wasn't there. I came back for the sunshine under the glare. Swimming late in the river, 50 miles out in the dache. This red city in summer, changes hearts from one to another.

The world is lost in city lights, our love is skating on ice. Winter warms our broken hearts and here I feel love.

Our lives are lost in city lights, our love is fading like ice. Summer melts our hearts away, and now I can't see love.
Track Name: Two Days
Two day's both in a row, one more and then you'll go. We won't see your face anymore.

It's not, not in the known, it's there written in stone. You won't face this day on your own.

Life is a song that we all know melodies fade

I'll take our time machine, back when she looked like the Queen. We could see that smile once again.

Life is a song that we all know, melodies fade like the snow. The sun cast a shadow on her fears, your smile was enough to dry her tears.

I'm in that place that I know. And its funny how days seem to go, 'cause I'm feeling just like a ghost walking through doors all closed.

Mountjoy V Monkhouse Lyrics.


1) The Heart Toll.

I'm going down, I'm going down. I'm going down, I'm going down.

And the morning brings the heart toll with the words that you said, 'cause the chains you see around you are all in your head.

Don't come around, don't make a single sound. I'm going down, I'm going down.

And it feels just like this life is rushing by, and it feels just like I've reached the edge of time.

Feel the world close up around you, life isn't what you thought at all. You just reflect the ones around you. For me it's you or none at all.

You're going down, you're going down. You're going down, you're going down.

And it feels just like I'm drifting further out to sea, 'cause a man who won't love quickly loves too deeply.

Feel the world close up around me, I guess that this is our goodbye. I'm left here feeling you eclipsed me, I guess you couldn't live a lie. Our lives are broken into moments, of revelation and of change. I guess I'm preaching the converted, to be saved does not mean caged.
Track Name: About Us
I'm so sad, and you're so mad. If we had...

Now is our time it seems. If we had half a chance...

Some day's we'll go floating in our hot air balloon. And there in the dizzy heights we'll come tumbling back down to love. I know I know.

I'm, I'm so down, but you're, you're around.
Track Name: Oh Well (pt1)
Oh well brand new day now, with fresh air now, fresh begin now. Can't get free of this need thing, think of you day, slip away now. I'm slipping away.

Clouds all, sliced up, laced together, not forever, falling from the sky.

Give a little loving into my space.

You are out there somewhere, wonder if it's all a nightmare.
Track Name: Oh Well (pt2)
Oh well brand new day now, with fresh air now, fresh begin now. Can't get free of this need thing, think of you day, slip away now. I'm slipping away.

Clouds all, sliced up, laced together, not forever, falling from the sky.

Give a little loving into my space.

You are out there somewhere, wonder if it's all a nightmare.
Track Name: Until The Next Great War
No need to shout it from the roof tops, we're all world weary and alone. Looking for our home. Somehow it was always going to happen, somewhere with both the wars we lost our soul, sinking so low.

Take a step back for a moment and feel the nothing, the emptiness can be your friend if you just give in.

Walking through the streets in the darkness, England's a mocking bird. But boy you know, well you know she can sing.

Take a step back for a moment and see the bigger picture, there's more to this life than meets the naked eye.

Around, around it's all around between the earth and sky.
Track Name: Getting There
I I I I, Im gunna get by. I I I I, I'm gunna get by. And I know life is all we have to share, pretty soon life will take us out of here.

I I I I, Im gunna get by. I I I I, I'm gunna get by. And I know life is all we have to share, pretty soon love will take me out of here.

I I I I, Im gunna get by. I I I I, I'm gunna get by. Broken hearts as beautiful as memories, waiting for the mirror to smile back at me.

Waiting for the day when it will be ok, it's not today, 'cause love is still a runaway.
Track Name: Blinded By The Bright Stars
Does anyone really know what they're talking about? Does anyone really know where God is hanging out? I'm still reeling my heart is spinning my head is beating, I'm so hard on myself but let me off so easily.

What does she see? The I the Idea of me?

Life keeps you alive to suck the life out of you. If you really were here I'd grab hold of you and never let go. I can barely get out of my own way still sucking my thumb. Round here I wonder how long before we're under the gun?

What does she see? The I that really is me?

When I was a boy there were two play grounds, one for the gods up high and one for the rest below. Somewhere in-between I drifted like a spectre, blinded by the bad start, lonely as a ghost.

She became my bright star to lead me unto Bethlehem, to find the pot of gold at the rainbows end. Somewhere on the way this disillusionmentor crept in like a phantom through the backdoor of my mind.
