Track Name: The Dead Don't Heal
There were five of us marching down the same footpath
We had been informed that it was haunted by a spectre
Of course at first we assumed that Phil Spector wasn't there
And had a laugh between us

But as we worked down the mountainside
We realized we couldn't see as far in front of eachother
As eachother's shoulders then we realized there was a problem
There was a worry and a concern

We tied rope to eachother's throats so if one fell all would fall
As the mist grew bigger and as the mist consumed us and dragged us back
Into that spot of the mind that you wish to avoid
We wondered individually what was going to happen

And did anything happen that day
I don't think anyone has a remedy anyway, but we can check
What did Kant say, perception is truth
Well I will tell you my perception

We went walking all alone when we went falling down below
We went walking for the truth and we fell down on top of it

Run away from all your fears
Let them wear your friends today
Cut the noose right down with blades
And let them fall from whence you came
Track Name: Emma (Hot Chocolate cover)
We were together since we were five
She was so pretty
Emma was a star in everyone's eyes
And when she said she'd be a movie queen
Nobody laughed
Her face like an angel
She could be anything

I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

At seventeen
We were wed
And I worked day and night to earn our daily bread
And every day
Emma would go out searching for that play
That never, ever came her way
And sometimes she come home and she'd be so depressed
I'd hear her crying in the back room and be so distressed
And I'd remember back way when she was five
To the words that used to make Emmaline come alive
It was...

It was a cold and dark December night
When I opened up the bedroom door
To find her lying
Still and cold upon the bed
A love letter lying on the bedroom floor
It read,
'Darling I love you
But I just can't keep on living on this dreams no more
I've tried so very hard not to leave you alone
But I just can't keep on trying no more'
