Track Name: Mercury I.
Stay, calm your nerves, or we’ll fall
Never recover, never pause.
State the facts, all’s unknown
No one’s been this far before

I’ve never loved somebody more
I’ve never followed someone blindly
So add my number to the score
Leave everything that was behind me

Please change your mind, there’s still time
All their warnings, felt like lies
This is real, but this isn’t love
This is madness, I’m undone

I felt the walls seal me in
I heard the way out close behind me
Trapped like a prisoner in my skin
Flying towards the future blindly

This time we may never come down
This time we may never touch the ground

Sweet distant ground
Distant home
I am nowhere
I’m alone
Track Name: Shouldn't Believe (Radio Edit)
Sweet-talk your lies into my ear with your secret spin
But know that I won’t give in again
Know that I won’t give in again
Flash all your magic your surprises are nothing new
And now that I won’t give in again
Know that I won’t give in again
You had your chance

You’re something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe

Hold my attention for a moment and then let go
And know that I won’t give in again
Know that I won’t give in again
Stay where you are

You’re something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe

We saw a future without flaw
But now I see you for what you are

For something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
You’re something that I shouldn’t believe
Track Name: Now What?
We left the weather behind
They said that we would never make it
We showed our metal in spades
We made democracy a favourite
That score was settled
That score was settled days ago
Don’t try and set it aside
Don’t try and set it aside

Just one small step and we’ll make it right
But I cannot say it’s worth the price
Just one small step and we’ll make it right
But I cannot say it’s worth the fight

We left our troubles behind
They left they’re secrets in the open
They need someone to fight
We prayed and nothing ever happened
That score was settled
That score was settled days ago
We won the race in the sky
We won the race in the sky

Just one small step and we’ll make it right
But I cannot say it’s worth the price
Just one small step and we’ll make it right
But I cannot say it’s worth the fight

You never said oh when you made it
Oh when you made it
It would be over
Track Name: Budget Meeting
Stand up and make your case
I want another thrill
Stir up the discontent
I wanna see what you’ve got
Behind that trick up your sleeve
Shrouded in mystery
You said that we’d go back
You told me we’d go back

Fall down and fade away
Do you really wanna see me fall
Fall down and fade away
Do you really wanna se me fall

You promised so much more
than you could ever fill
You sent a firm goodbye
I wanna see what you’ve got
Behind that money you spent
Behind that flash of light
You’re days are numbered still
Our days are numbered too

Fall down and fade away
Do you really wanna see me fall
Fall down and fade away
Do you really wanna see me fall

I’m already, I’m already home
I’m already I’m already home
I’m already I’m already home

This was your final chance
So go and walk away
Track Name: All of You on the Good Earth (Acoustic)
I’ve never seen you before
The way that I see you now
Swirl in a mist of phantom’s sweet kiss
You were older than I but my charge

Surrounded by that blazing smoke
I’ll keep you safe
And swear I’ll do you no wrong
I meant no harm, I caused you pain
You bear those scars
Like something I can never live down

Truly I’m jealous of you
Pure unabashed, unashamed
Give me one chance to erase my mistakes
Would you trust me again if I tried?

I would have broken your heart
I would have broken your heart

Surrounded by that blazing smoke
I’ll keep you safe
And swear I’ll do you no wrong
I meant no harm, I caused you pain
You bear those scars
Like something I can never live down

You bear those scars
Like something I can never live down
You bear those scars
Like something I cannot

Don’t say a word; don’t say a word let’s take this in
Don’t say a word; don’t say a word let’s take this in
Don’t say a word; don’t say a word let’s take this in
Don’t say a word; don’t say a word let’s take this in
