Track Name: Owensie - Cat & Mouse
Three lay upon a small grass patch,
As if sleeping rough,
With no haven to be found.

Seven days into the new Spring,
They knew they'd have to leave,
But no one could guess how.

Were they pushed beyond reason?

Father, mother and step-son,
Together they did plunge,
From a tower deep in the sky.

Blood spilled upon a road named Red,
Did the thought enter their heads,
As they came from high?

Did they live beyond reason?

Were they pushed or pulled to the grass,
Where flowers and candles now lie.
Where their counterparts identified,
That their panic and fear is like ours,
Where their chase, like cat and mouse,
Ran out of corridors to be run down...

They're always chasing you down...


Chasing you down...
Track Name: Ambience Affair - Fragile Things
Brace yourself, brace yourself,
You better pace yourself,
I'm not coming back.

Such a tease, an awful tease,
You'd broken both my knees
And I'd not noticed.

Please somebody guide me.
Track Name: GRIM - Splendour
am making all this noise to avoid calling your name.
It's a dilution of fears, a spurt of growth that's caused by pain.
And in my nightmares I am still there; in the house where I made ghosts.
And I hate seeing your doorway and I hate feeling you close.
Because as close as you may get, you are still so far away.
And I feel selfish that I just can't bring myself to watch you fade away.

All this growth's sure to be the death of me.
