Track Name: The Caveman
When I was a caveman I was but a saved man
You took it all for yourself
When I was a caveman I was not a slave man
I found it all by myself

And I was running

Set me free
Look at what the future did to me

When I was a caveman I looked to the birds
I said if I could build wings and flap them
Life could work, I could reach the higher leaves
Fly over my enemies

And I was flying
Track Name: The Ship
I travelled so far East
I could almost see the West
I never thought that
This would be anything less
You're like a sink that drips
And keeps me up all night
You're like a faulty switch
That won't put out the light

Will we find our way out of the maze?
The ship is sinking
It's sinking away

I'm an open window
Wanting the curtains to be closed
I'm a body waiting
Just waiting to decompose
I'm a roaring fire
Wanting to be doused in water
I'm a Shankill Butcher
Planning my next Slaughter

Will we find our way out of the maze?
The ship is sinking
It's sinking away
Track Name: The Middle Of The Moon
Swim in the ocean
Fly in the clouds
Climb the tallest mountain
Know the right way out of your mind

I still thirst for raindrops falling on my skin
The map inside your eyelids
Is the key to the outside of time

I sat on the middle of the moon
And I stared at the sun
We cursed it in the day
We cursed it when it had gone

I have toyed with Leviathan
I have slept in space
The villagers are watching
The peril of the human race

I sat on the middle of the moon
And I stared at the sun
We cursed it in the day
We cursed it when it had gone
