Track Name: To Be Honest
To Be Honest

Are you prepared now for initiation
You've still got time, to make your exit
On to the first road before the race kicked in
Making good time out of here, and
Towers are receding, in the distance, now you're
taking the time to let your senses grow
For a reason
To think it all through, watching the sun drown in the sky

You won't see anything like this again, in a million years
You thought you could make all the plans and decide where the axe would fall
Are you brave enough to walk on the ice over and over again & again & again.
To be honest, I don't think so

And don't be afraid of what you don't want to know
You feel so alone, a million miles from now,
it's the right time to be thinking with a crystal mind, it will always pay,
For a fall, for the workman, he's always the last to know
With his head in his hands to slip to the ground

You won't see anything like this again, in a million years
You thought you could make all the plans and decide where the axe would fall
Are you brave enough to walk on the ice over & over again & again, again & again
To be honest, I don't think so


Can you see me in this game of hide and seek?
Count to 10, open up your eyes and take a good look around.
Second guess me, make me go blind.
My soul is untethered so forsake me, and go forsake yourself!

You won't see anything like this again, in a million years
You thought you could make all the plans and decide where the axe would fall
Are you brave enough to walk on the ice over & over again & again, again & again
To be honest, I don't think so

Lyrics By Stuart Anthony & Matt Appleton
Track Name: Trick Of The Light
Am I mistaken
Did I just see her make her way across that floor
It's just a trick of the light
It's just a trick of the light
I don't see this woman in this no horse town
In the glass of no return


Chorus
She, she is dangerous
(She is dangerous)
Reaching critical with what she knows
(Critical of me)
And she, she will satisfy
(She will satisfy)
And she will survive the bitter and the sweet
(Bitter & the sweet)


Verse 2
Can't just stand here
Like lightning just struck me
I'm heading your way
Like I really need to know
I'm in that club light
And by that table
I catch that best side
Say something hard under my breath x3


Verse 3
There she is
There she is
Like a visitation
Just like a vision
Like a 3D memory
Like a 3D memory
Like a 3D memory

She, she is dangerous
(She is dangerous)
Reaching critical with what she knows
(Critical of me)
And she, she will satisfy
(She will satisfy)
And she will survive the bitter and the sweet
(Bitter & the sweet)
Track Name: Easy Sky
It’s been a long time
And I looked too hard behind
I hated the horizon
As it swallowed up my eyes.

The desert hides the oasis
The night dislocates it’s jaw
The stars shine out in black beauty.
The water throws back the moon
To the easy sky.

While I’m out on the plain
I meet a desert angel
I wash the dust off her feet
She says we all have a story to tell

The desert hides the oasis
The night dislocates it’s jaw
The stars shine out in black beauty.
While water throws back the moon
To the easy sky.

I hope I get what I need
I hope I’ve found the salt of the earth
If I know the value of everything
I can’t decide what it’s worth

Now everything is louder
Messages are everywhere
I see in sharp relief
Love stands out here

The desert hides the oasis
The night dislocates it’s jaw
The stars shine out in black beauty.
The water throws back the moon
To the easy sky.
Track Name: Honey & Warmth
It’s been some time but I still hear the song sound on high
It cuts through the roar of the storm that whips round in my mind
In comes the sun like an old friend I’ve not seen for days
You know what I mean when I say I am touched by the rays like a hand

I need an escapist to help keep me sane in this fight
And when I am rested I’ll come back to put it to flight
Out go the rules and in comes the colourful truth
You know what I mean when I say give it up, cut it loose from the chains

Come to see you in new light
Nothing static, sweet with bite
If I wanted, now it’s mine

Speak in tongues for love
Sail on seas of change
Honey and warmth on my face
Time for the battle can wait for my word

Out go the rules and in comes the colourful truth
You know what I mean when I say give it up, cut it loose from the chains

Come to see you in new light
Nothing static, sweet with bite
If I wanted, now it’s mine

Speak in tongues for love
Sail on seas of change
Honey and warmth on my face
Time for the battle can wait for my word
Track Name: Across The Guns
Smoke drifting
All along the guns
Is it no surprise
Where we got them from

In the house of pain
Shut away the dark
And in the space between us
Strike out the spark.


Come with me, we will find
The means to make amends
Liberate, liberate
All the prisoners in your mind…
It’s the day, it’s the day
When we walk right out of here
Hit the road, hit the road
With your destination clear
So clear

‘So tempting
To take up the time
Where we, eat like kings
& drown in oil and wine

Across the mountains
The sun will set
And in the islands
We’ll forget

Come with me, we will find
The means to make amends
Liberate, liberate
All the prisoners in your mind…
It’s the day, it’s the day
When we walk right out of here
Hit the road, hit the road
With your destination clear
So clear

You've go to liberate your mind people!
This is an instruction to liberate your mind.
Track Name: Later Than Sooner
The dawning of a new day is just around the corner
No-one prepared you for today
The one you expected, a not so subtle twist
Now the blood hammers through your veins

If I take a little trip up into the hills
I see this place in the distance
Are you thinking of running underground
I get the sense that there's nothing left

The rising of the oceans, the devil's lost his way
into our minds & emotions
There's poison in the waters, don't let that stop you drinking
What else would you drink anyway, like you've got a choice

If you're glued to your Television & you see it in the news
(two thousand twelve )
You better, better write it down in the
(better better down )
the story that's unfolding, leading to a swift conclusion
(two thousand twelve )
You better, better hope it's later than sooner!
(better better later )

In the sky there's a great fire it drags a trail of sparks
The great star will blaze for seven days
There's a black hole that's colliding underneath the mountains
The centre of our world fades away

You might say all (I got) is here say
It just exists by coincidence
hindsight predicts (that) it's in our hands
Yet people say it's more trouble than it's worth

The rising of corruption, the world's a played out game
Grab the rope, don't let us slip away into a
world of destruction, don't let it stop you thinking
What else would you think anyway, like you've got a choice

If you're looking in the papers & you've read it in the news
(two thousand twelve )
You better, better think again about
(better better again )
the story that's unfolding, leading to a swift conclusion
(two thousand twelve )
You better, better pray that it's later than sooner!
(better better later )

If you're glued to your Television & you see it in the news
(two thousand twelve )
You better, better write it down in the
(better better down )
the story that's unfolding, leading to a swift conclusion
(two thousand twelve )
You better, better hope it's later than sooner!
(better better later )

The poison in the waters, a comet's on its way
it brings third world war destruction
The rising of the oceans, don't let it stop you sinking
Where else can you go anyway, like you've got a choice
Track Name: Who Can Deny Love
Meet me down by the riverside
where we can sit 'til morning
Life's too short for a heavy heart
Shake off all those feelings
Lets waste no time on all those things
That used to keep us guessing
Flow on by the waters edge
as the silver moon is falling

All it takes is a little push
never thought I'd see you act like you do
I want to show you, who can deny love?
No-one ever really is alone

I see the warmth return to your face
I see your soul in a better place
Here in this moment where it all feels right
Watch all our troubles fading out to white

The sun's rolling fast just beneath our feet
The moment leaves us standing
I told you once and you told me twice
We can live on love and pleasure.
Cut to the chase while we still have time
A thrill never lasts forever

All it takes is a little push
never thought I'd see you act like you do
I want to show you, who can deny love?
never thought I'd see you so alone

Who can deny love?
Who can deny love?
Who can deny love?
Who can deny love?
Track Name: Heavier
Heavier than my head
Heavier than my breathing baby
Heavier than my eyes
Heavier than my footsteps baby


Pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up


Heavier than these drums
Heavier than this bass now baby
Heavier than this riff
Heavier than this voice now baby

Baby you're the gravity that pulls me to the ground
Baby don't resist the pull of freedom and desire
Heavier than love
Lighter than sound.


Lighter than this star
Lighter than my tongue now baby
Lighter than this sky
Lighter than this feeling baby


Pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up

Heavier than my head
Heavier than my breathing baby
Heavier than my eyes
Heavier than my footsteps baby
Heavier than this star
Heavier than my tongue now baby
Heavier than that sound.
Track Name: Hit & Miss
Take one more shot, you know you can't keep a good man down!
There's some confusion in the air, lets sort it out, while the signs are good!
I've got my hands, hold all the cards that I need to mend
a broken dream, a broken heart. Hit and miss, there it goes!

Here comes the fade, I've got nothing I can count on
Gone are the days when the spark could be relied on
Then I got a little glimpse of the unexpected
All things could never be the same

Just when you think you've got it alright
Just when you think that you've arrived... you're starting again!

Take one more shot, you know you can't keep a good man down!
There's some confusion in the air, lets sort it out, while the signs are good!
I've got my hands, hold all the cards that I need to mend
a broken dream, a broken heart. Hit and miss, there it goes!

Here comes the fade, I've got nothing I can count on
Gone are the days when the spark could be relied on
Then I got a little glimpse of the unexpected
All things could never be the same

Hit & miss was all I needed

Just when you think you got it alright
Just when you think that you've arrived...you're starting again!

Take one more shot, you know you can't keep a good man down!
There's some confusion in the air, lets sort it out, while the signs are good!
I've got my hands, hold all the cards that I need to mend
a broken dream, a broken heart. Hit and miss, there it goes!

It's not quite true, but then again I could hold it down
There's some confusion in the air, lets sort it out while the signs are good!
I've got my hands, hold all the cards that I need to mend
a broken dream, a broken heart. Hit and miss, there it goes!

Breathe into life all of my dead words from the page
A hit and miss & there it goes, well the signs are good!
So I got a little glimpse of the unexpected, take one more shot!
A broken dream, a broken heart. Hit and miss, there it goes!


So I got a little glimpse of the unexpected. Take one more shot,
Left it behind, kicked my heels down the only road
I've got my hands, hold all the cards that I need to mend. Take one more shot,
you know you can't keep a good man down. Hit and miss, there it goes!
Track Name: Cyclone
V1.You gave me nothing in return
For what I gave you
You made sure everything got burned away
So nothing returned

I asked if I could be of service
But you were so well served
You made sure that I couldn’t get through
I broke my head on the wall

And I thought I was lost
And I thought I was lost

CH.But I’ve healed my mind
Made my heart unwind
Put my back into the grindstone
Things were bad before
Now I take the floor
And I will outrun the cyclone

V2.You sailed your ship into the harbour
With false pretences
You held me in your grip of fever
I was dying of thirst

You held my hopes down under promises
That never came true
I couldn’t hope to find my answers
When I was asking you

And I thought I was lost
And I thought I was lost
CHX2.But I’ve healed my mind
Made my heart unwind
Put my back into the grindstone
Things were bad before
Now I take the floor
And I will outrun the cyclone

May this memory of a failing love
Begin to fade


I watch you fall back down to Earth
I see you falling out of the sky

But I’ve healed my mind
Made my heart unwind
Put my back into the grindstone
Things were bad before
Now I take the floor
And I will outrun the cyclone

DFG Stabs
Our worlds didn’t meet
Different sides of the street
We couldn’t compete
Was it something I said?
I didn’t catch what you meant.
The roaring sound made me deaf.
Track Name: Twelfth Knight (King Of December) - Bonus Track
The Knight of all seasons stares across

At June & July, with August's loss

Ambitions, flowered through March, April and May

As they shortened the night, and lengthened the day

Chorus 1

The holly and the evergreen, weave through Winters's crown

The Knight stands heavily draped in Scorpio's gown

Then he smiles in the fires glow, for this is Christmas,

Call the North Wind and let the snow blow

Verse 2
An icy stare strikes August's eye

Disharmony falls at the fault of July

September, is seven, and October is eight

December is ten by name and by place

Chorus 1


The holly and the evergreen, weave through Winters's crown

The Knight stands heavily draped in Scorpio's gown

Then he smiles,in the fires glow, for this is Christmas,

Sing and let the wine flow....


Mid 8

March had no wind, April no showers,

A good Summer in England, Lost count of the hours

From work to fruition, in deep harvest gold

Now we are twelve when once we were ten in our days of old.

Chorus 1

The holly and the evergreen, weaves through Winters's crown

The Knight stands heavily draped in Scorpio's gown

Then he smiles in the fires glow, so this is Christmas

Sing and let the wine flow...

So here's to the new year and and all unknown friends

To harmony in nature, may it never end.

So celebrate and always remember

The Twelfth Knight at your table the king of December

The King Of December

The King Of December

The King Of December

The King Of December

Lyrics by Peter Antony
