Track Name: The Hollow Down by the Flare
It's a myth
It's a joke
That boredom
Makes you sleepy
It makes you feel
And Anxious
And broken
Track Name: Between the Devil & a Rock
Just because you can't
Imagine it
That doesn't make it
Any less likely
Track Name: Polite Fictions
I won't philosophise
I won't be intense
Since you seem to have the monopoly
On taking offence
Track Name: Nina Kulagina
Around here you're royalty
Track Name: New Colour
The new colour I came to decide
Was each one side-by-side
Track Name: Nothing to Rave Home About
Never turn down an opportunity
For a bit of self-righteous piety
Track Name: A Lie to Tell the Truth
When you felt your most fumbling, blind
You were really so much nearer
And what seemed like a mask to hide behind
Was really a mirror
Track Name: The London Medicine
Aquilegia, astor, knotweed, charlock, goosegrass, groundsel
Hogweed, honesy, lamium, iris, foetidissima
Grow out of London rooftops
Track Name: Vertical Archipelagos
All these plot-holes and loose threads
Track Name: Chthonic
Trying to work out who you are
Is like telling the difference between
A cut and a scar
Track Name: Between a Hard Place & the Deep Blue Sea
Between a hard place
& the deep blue sea
There's one for you
nineteen for me
Track Name: Psychoplasmics
I don't need to look up at the stars
Or to contemplate the night-sky
To feel insignificant

And you can't have it both ways
You don't feel humbled by receiving praise
Or awards
It's just a phrase
You've heard other people say
That makes you feel great
