bthfanacct Great little record. Sort of halfway between David Bowie's mellower material and Stabbing Westward. Nice to play when the sun is out. Favorite track: Trouble Of Trust.

Track Name: Preaching To The Rails
Incandescent bulbs
All bursting into light
And all those little truths
You’re wishing weren’t right
Honesty at four
And eight glasses of rain
Water in the lungs
Just wash it all away
Are you the one who’s selling his soul?
Don’t bother me ‘cause I’m digging that hole
You wish the tracks and rails went right
Now hang a left and hold on tight
The ice moves in as you scream out
Who’s hanging your head as you turn it all around?
Are you the one who’s selling his soul
I said, don’t bother me ‘cause I’m digging that hole
I said, are you the one who’s selling his soul
I know, don’t bother me ‘cause I’m losing control
Are you the one who’s selling his soul?
I said, don’t bother me ‘cause I’m digging that hole
I said, are you the one who’s selling his soul?
Track Name: Gemini Rising
I’m skipping steps
And throwing stones
At other people’s glass houses
I’m running scared
And walking blind
Blind minded
So give me one more
Reason to ignore
The sound of the wolf
Clawing at the door
I’ve been touched in the head
My mind’s not weak
I got a couple hours left
Hours left to speak
I’ve got a full cup
That’s empty from a
Beggar’s point of view
And if I had half
A sense in my head
I’d run away from you
But my back has been broke
Straight in two before
And a couple of kinks
Can’t settle the score
But I’ve been touched in the head
My mind’s not weak
I got a couple hours left
I’ve been touched in the head
My mind’s not weak
I got a couple hours left
Track Name: Shadow
So you want to be a wrecking ball and break my earth in two?
Well here’s a parting gift of pairing knife
Just keep your hands in view, because
We got torn together
We were thrown apart
And what’s been wrecked from me to you
Now just a shadow in my heart
Took a step in closer, sure as any to fall the trap
Took a step in but my twin shouted out to me “step back!”
Took a step in closer still
We got torn together
We were thrown apart
And what’s been wrecked from me to you
Now just a shadow in my heart
Today’s the day you should be afraid
Because I’m getting strong
Today’s the day you should burn your things
‘Cause I’m here to take it all
We got torn together
We were thrown apart
And what’s been wrecked from me to you
Now just a shadow in my heart
Track Name: Trouble Of Trust
Another year, and I am none the wiser
It’s never clear what I am meant to say
Oh why, oh why, oh why
But if it’s the path you chose to choose
Then it’s the love you used to use
And if it’s your lover you love to leave
Then it’s got you asking me:
Why? Why? Why?
Another year and I am none the wiser
It’s never clear what I am meant to say
Oh why, oh why, oh why
You’re always walking backwards in the future
And I know there’s a code in what you choose not to say
But as all of you speed away on wheels that were meant for walking
As sure as each one makes mistakes, I know we’re not the same
