Track Name: Loch Ordie
LYRICS:

Loch Ordie, we are asleep

Let’s swim in Loch Ordie
Nothing to worry
Only our stories
Drifting apart

Let’s dive in Loch Ordie
Mountains rise before me
You always knew, you won’t get home

Let’s drift in Loch Ordie
The mist it surrounds me
Gone by the morning
With the rising sun

Let’s drown in Loch Ordie
Stories are below me
You always knew, you won’t get home
All by yourself

Loch Ordie, we are asleep
And the sound
There’s silence all around
Track Name: The Mountain (Turn Around)
LYRICS:

Oh brother of mine
Don’t forget where you started
The mountain is high
But you’ll reach the top still

Do you remember
Why you started climbing
And when you can go
No further, oh please

Turn around

And mother always thought
The fog would blog the view
Now the clouds have gone
And now you can see too

But when you can see
Where you could go to
Will only the top
Be in front, will you

Turn around

Don’t forget to look
Behind you and see
How far you could have come
Track Name: Status Quo
LYRICS:

Don’t you love the status quo?
It gets you by, it get you old
Don’t you love the status quo?
We’re standing still till we’re getting cold

All alone, all alone
All alone, all alone

Why do you read the news at all?
It’s all the same as it was before
Why do you read the news at all?
People die when they open the door

Open the door, will you open the door
Will you open the door?

This house could use some laughter don’t you think?
Fill up all the bullet holes with flowers and with ink
Tare down all the afterthoughts its children are living
We need no-one to read the news, just eyes to see what we’re living in
What we’re living in

There’s a kid playing on the street
She trips and falls and starts to bleed
There’s a kid playing on the street
You tell her off, you tell her to sleep

Go to sleep, go to sleep
Go to sleep, go to sleep

There’s a tree growing down below
We try to stop it where it goes
There’s a tree growing down below
But deep inside we’ve always known

It’s gonna grow, it’s gonna grow
It’s gonna grow
Oh, let it grow

This house could use some laughter don’t you think?
Fill up all the bullet holes with flowers and with ink
Tare down all the afterthoughts its children are living
We need no-one to read the news

This house could use some laughter don’t you think?
Fill up all the bullet holes with flowers and with ink
Tare down all the afterthoughts its children are living
We need no-one to read the news, just eyes to see what we’re living in
What we’re living in

It’s easy to love the status quo
It’s easy to stay it’s hard to go

It’s easy to love the status quo
Let us love, let us go
Oh, let us go
Track Name: Waterproof I
LYRICS:

Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof

So come the storm
So come the storm

Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof

So lie beside me, and keep me warm
So come the light, so come the storm

Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof

So come the storm
So come the storm

Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Our songs are waterproof
Track Name: Waterproof II (Sleep Through The Storm)
LYRICS:

You wait
By my side
As you waved the train away
I turned my head in shame

The storm hits the shore
It leaks through the roof
Blows open the door
Our songs are waterproof

And the wind
Plays a tune
As it blows the leaves
Of our family trees

If nothing is right
Then nothing is wrong
So lie by my side
We’ll sleep through the storm

Until we reach the end there so nowhere we cannot go
But to leave you my friend was the only blind bend in the road

It’s taken me down
I can’t do this along
Yeah it’s taken me down
All we need is a home

You held up a mirror in front of my eyes
And showed me that all of my stories are lies
Yet none of them will ever be lonely cries
They’ll convince you of mass-desperation

Forgive me if all of my answers are slow
But I’m still getting used to the wealth of this home
And relieved that I’m not facing this storm alone
’cause I’d only dig myself deeper

If nothing is right
Then nothing is wrong
So lie by my side
We’ll sleep though the storm

Oh we’ll sleep through the storm
Track Name: The Sleeptalker
LYRICS:

Sleep, sleep, sleep, and say the words we don’t speak
Sleep, sleep, sleep, and say the words we don’t speak
Sleep, sleep, sleep, and say the words we don’t speak
Sleep, sleep, sleep, and say the words we don’t speak

You’re all that means to me and
You’re all that’s left to say
Your mind’s as sharp as ever
Cuts all my words away

You’re all that means to me and
You’re all that’s left to say
Your mind’s as sharp as ever
Cuts all my words away
