Track Name: Delphians - Paint By Numbers
PAINT BY NUMBERS

You’ve got smoke in your eyes/and holes in your shoes
Your home unknown/your soul is not your own/you’ve got nothing to lose
‘Cause you broke your own imagination/it doesn’t paint in colour in your head
You threw it down and stamped the ground/when left for dear the colours came out black and white and red

Human behaviour is left behind/you carry your headstone through the night
You’re tied to the grind/you live so you can die

So paint by numbers/for the rest of your days
And never breach the surface/never let the danger in
You feel no joy in loneliness/you feel no pain/you only feel the same thing
Believe no fate and feel no hate just concentrate on floating in the boat you’re sinking in

Human behaviour is left behind/you carry your headstone through the night
You’re tied to the grind/you live so you can die

You take no comfort in a quiet room
Your weakness is incredible/it’s terrible and cruel
It’s not so hard for you to take/another fake for fate to hate
You have no pride to feel the ache
You have no heart for me to break

Human behaviour is left behind/you carry your headstone through the night
You’re tied to the grind/you live so you can die

So paint by numbers
Track Name: Delphians - Silence Song
SILENCE SONG

As a child I saw a scene/and no-one stood where a boy should be
And your soul didn’t come out to play
It was lost and their faces turned away

You can’t make the connection you feel no affection
You can’t find a place to begin
The deathless repercussions of meaningless discussion
Fill the cracks of silence in

Time moved on and you just didn’t fit
And hatred came as love’s counterfeit
And it stood. It stood and it stared
And shadows fell inside your head

The enmity is growing/the feeling of not knowing
Everything is wearing thin
The deathless repercussions of meaningless discussions
Fill the cracks of silence in

You know something’s wrong/’cause you feel so dead inside
And doing it wrong should never feel so right
Out of sight

You can’t speak through the silence/your voice is in violence
The human tide is rolling in
The dealthless repercussions of meaningless discussion
Fill the cracks of silence in
You can’t make the connection you feel no affection
You can’t find a place to begin
The deathless repercussions of meaningless discussion
Fill the cracks of silence in.
Track Name: Delphians - Nowhere Rose
NOWHERE ROSE

Dark shapes in the clouds
From the start they let you down
Now your shadow’s long and you lost your grace
A crater stands in your place

Nowhere rose/turn your face to the sun
I just cannot get you/get out of my head
I just cannot get you/I’m scared that you’re dead

There’s no reflection in your eyes
All you have now is killing time
And licking old wounds
And learning old hate
Old man/you made a mistake
You showed me your hate and anger came
Old man/it’s so hard to define
What you lose when you’re reading between the lines

Nowhere rose/turn your face to the sun
I just cannot get you/get out of my head
I just cannot get you/I’m scared that you’re dead

Old man

Nowhere rose/turn your face to the sun
I just cannot get you/get out of my head
I just cannot get you/I’m scared that you’re dead
Track Name: Delphians - Branches
BRANCHES

I’m running up reasons for riding on trains
The minutes and miles I quickly forget
More than leaves on the line
And time on my mind
My travelling partner gave me a gift
The paper and perfume made me accept
I think that she said
That “when the logic runs short let the love come in”

Branches passing messages to you

Swimming through the tide of people
Following the sound of bells
A storm in hell would not turn your head

Branches passing messages to you.
