Lyrics

Karma

Written By: Craig Costello

Try to figure out, who to impress
You second guess, your second guess
You’ll find the door is closed every single time

You forgot that, that I know you
You forgot that, we know you
You forgot that, everyone knows you,
Save it for the halfway girls

Yeah
Stand alone on the bridges that you burn
Yeah
Second chance for the heads that always turn

They always turn

A concience lies, covered in dust,
A broken link in a chain of trust,
As karma warms her hands,
I will have my time,

Ask the question, did you know me?
Ask the question, did you ever care?
Ask the question, are you happy now?
Save it for a life mis-sold!

Yeah
Stand alone on the bridges that you burn
Yeah
Second chance for the heads that always turn

Repeat chorus

Turn, they always turn

Eighteen Tonne

Written By: Craig Costello/Michael Gordon

Kiss her lightly and politely,
Wave the hand of a friend goodbye
Cover up eyes to avoid the flies,
Hittin on you like an eighteen tonne

Darker inside where your devil hides
Trickin you into tellin’ lies
I’m a ride, i’m a train, i’m a gun
And i’m goin off
Who am I supposed to call?

Callin on my hero, i’m callin out, i’m callin out
Callin on my hero, i’m callin out, i’m callin out, i’m callin out

Misery sells, can you even tell
Find it hard to produce a smile
Need a rescue in the shape of you
Superhero with an aerosol

Darker inside where your devil hides
Trickin you into tellin lies
I’m a ride, i’m a train, i’m a gun
And i’m goin off
Who am I supposed to call?

My World

Written By: Michael Gordon

I wouldn’t want to trouble you
Why can’t you make the effort

Who do you think you are?
Some kind of regal innocent
Here is news and it is for ya

Chorus
Hey don’t stay there, welcome to my world
All the people that you love are all around
Hey don’t stay there welcome to my world
You gonna lose it if you choose to walk away

Bug me out my head
If you think that it might help
You’re barking up the wrong guy

Shoot it in your head
Brain inflaming to the end
Gonna shake it up and come on

Chorus

Guitar break

Cut your cable, sheer your lifeline
Come and join your hands with me

Put your cup down, tear your hair out
Take a leap of faith with me
