Track Name: Wiping Out the Cynics
Wiping out the cynics
Time stood still for us
The places we loved were unchanging
For I can only believe in one thing at a time
Contrivances heaped on one another
And misjudged optimism everywhere
For we must shy away from complexity
And manage expectations

I'm compelled to believe in what I believe in
The most reluctant idealist

Fortitude where it was least expected
I will make a return on your investment
Contrivances heaped on one another
And misjudged optimism everywhere
For we must shy away from complexity
And manage expectations

I'm compelled to believe in what I believe in
The most reluctant idealist
Fortitude where it was least expected
I will make a return on your investment
Track Name: Pam Ewing Wakes Up from a Dream
Words written out on limp paper
Armed or disarmed? A note to my future self
Causation is my friend. I call you my friend
Words written out on limp paper and you're a glass vase

You can keep my post warm
You already know your way round
I expect your customary warmth
You already know your way round

Pam, you left a breadcrumb trail behind
We contrived a shocking waste of time

That suitcase looks a lot like a plot device
So call your dogs off
'Good morning' he announces, with a smile
Track Name: Nimshi
Many hands, many voices
We put a plait in your hair and you appear older, instantly

This is an act of standing still
We find incredible beauty

Alarms, cancel the wedding
Stretcher in the wounded son
Draped in perfume, middle age, I welcome you
Every atom in your brain is firing

Barely suppressed feelings
The stench of piss from years ago
Now rewarded, we're dealing with stewardship that we don't know

This is an act of standing still
And under grave threat
