Track Name: Sweet Anthony
Can I ask you, Sweet Anthony, to bid the year farewell?

Hell is this peace we are chasing,
When this fight is our own creation,
Forgive me for my schoolyard tricks,
I'm too in love to play at politics.

If I cut you to see,
If your love really bleeds for me,
I'm sorry.

Can I ask you, Sweet Anthony, to bid the year farewell?

Help me to banish my demons,
The holy ghost, for us, is breathing,
You've got so much to give, with so much resistance,
This could be mutually assured forgiveness.

When we're alone I know,
Your love is the end of my road,
But one thing:

Can I ask you, Sweet Anthony, to bid the year farewell?
Track Name: Foolish Love
Foolish Love,
Such a fool am I, in love.
A fool to trust, only one
With every piece of this heart.

Tameless love,
Foolish am I resisting,
Love pours in and floods
The strings of this heart.

This heart is cornered,
This heart is border-breached
And its as naked as a ghost,
Though the preachers calling,
The ancient warning,
The blood that's on my hands soaks to the bone.
Track Name: First in Line
I don't know why,
But when I'm dying to be unkind,
Honey, you're the first in line,
I've got no spine,
And when I'm dying for to,
Spit out my spite,
You're the first in line.

I don't claim to be a saint,
But I've been playing at this game knowingly,
Too long.
It doesn't take much to brave,
To elicit some restraint,
Or at least to hold my tongue.

I don't know why,
But when I'm dying to be unkind,
Honey, you're the first in line,
I've got no spine,
And when I'm dying for to,
Spit out my spite,
You're the first in line.

I can blame it all on fate:
"I can't help but act in haste",
Wash my hands of every wrong.
In truth it soothes my pain,
It cools a crying shame,
Feigning guilt in pointless songs.

I don't know why,
But when I'm dying to be unkind,
Honey, you're the first in line,
I've got no spine,
And when I'm dying for to,
Spit out my spite,
You're the first in line.

I'm looking for a fight,
Come on and do your worst,
I'm looking for a fight.

I don't know why,
But when I'm dying to be unkind,
Honey, you're the first in line,
I've got no spine,
And when I'm dying for to,
Spit out my spite,
You're the first in line.

I'm looking for a fight,
Come on and do your worst,
I'm looking for a fight.
Track Name: Bronze, Silver & Gold
Bronze and silver and gold and diamond,
Could not buy the love of my darling,
In sweetness and sickness,
Reciprocal forgiveness,
The blindfolded flight of a starling.

Thank god you're worth trusting,
My heart is on show.

Over the city flooded by finery,
All of the statues stretch high,
They scream like a witness,
To the stillness of wisdom,
There in my lover's eyes.

Thank god you're worth trusting,
My heart is on show.

Bronze and silver and gold and diamond,
Fight in the distance like lightning,
I love you with such fever,
With the madness of Ophelia,
Bronze and silver and gold.

Bronze and silver and gold and diamond.
Track Name: In the Afterglow
Someday soon in an unknown place,
I'll make you cry again,
I'll be cruel and so will you,
It's something that lovers do.

An empty moon,
Distant stars with nothing to prove,
We'll realise there's love to lose,
Our fight silenced like a fool.

Dawn grows from the darkest hour,
By that light I love you the most,
When we're most exposed,
In the afterglow.

High stakes smoke into flames,
All blame billows and plumes,
Surface wounds,
A few rounds exchanged in a kiln,
Set on ice and eased with good will,
The truth: only love can thrill.

Fire grows from two kindled stones,
As that light fades our love starts to show,
When we're most exposed,
In the afterglow.
