Track Name: Halo
Something is growing on the top of your head
Is it a halo?
Cos all that I can see
Looks pretty good to me
And the light on your face is resting longer
Getting stronger now

And something is telling me to just stay inside
Should I lay low?
Cos anyone can see
What’s going on with me
And the light from my eyes is scorching pinholes in the pavement

Well...
I recommend you try
A little piece of my
Heaven or suicide
It tastes like almonds you know
I saved it all for you
So what’s a boy to do?

Something is growing on the top of your head
Is it a halo?
Or is it just the fear
Before your horns appear
And the light from your screen illuminates disdain and separation

And something is telling me to chill the fuck out
But, well, hey ho...
With every X you send
It multiplies again
I’m the willing accomplice of an overactive imagination

Oh...
I recommend you try
A little piece of my
Heaven or suicide
It tastes like almonds you know
I saved it all for you
So what's a boy to do?

So I’ll stroke you softly on the top of your head
Polish your halo
Track Name: Rain Stopped Play (2012 version)
Rain stopped play
On the field of life
The flood is rising
I can't say
If this feeling's more or less surprising

(Just hold on)
To an emptier day, hey, hey
(Just stay strong)
Though the nights are so warm
Hold me close cos I'm shivering

We're drowning for sure
Miles out from the shore

Rain stopped play
We went in for tea
And came out dreaming
I can't stay
I've got things to see and do this evening

(My heart's full)
..of MDMA, hey, hey
(Keeps me warm)
When the nights are so cold
You're the hand that I'm holding

We're drowning for sure
Miles out from the shore

Don't know what to do
Don't know what to say
I had it in my sights and then
Rain stopped play

Don't know what to do
Don't know what to say
You hit me for six and then
Rain stopped play

Don't know what to do
Don't know what to say
I had you in my sights and then
Rain stopped play

Don't know what to do
Don't know what to say
You hit me up for sex
Yeah!
Track Name: Ripples
Drop a stone and watch the ripples spread
Outside the Iceland exit door
Give a sign with just a tilt of the head
A bag of records on the floor
Though I’ll forget the name, the face
I’ll always taste
Your soap and aftershave

Baby, don’t turn away
Because I’m trying to find you, trying to find you
And don’t fade away
I’m only trying to find you, trying to find you

And I’m the demolition ball
I’m the demolition ball

Take a step, shift your weight and release
You’re gonna gutter or strike it now
This place has everything you could need
Give me your hand and I’ll show you how
Time lies in puddles at my feet
I broke the seal
I smashed the world apart

Baby, don’t turn away
Because I’m trying to find you, trying to find you
And don’t fade away
I’m only trying to find you, trying to find you
The lines melt away
We’ll have to run when I find you
Don’t look behind you...

Cos I’m the demolition ball
I’m the demolition ball

That’s right, you’re going to hell, she said
For all the things that you do in bed
But I’m already there, you know, I’m already there
You’re going to hell, she said
For all the things going on in your head
But I’m already there, you know, I’m already there
We’re breaking apart, she said
