A random collection of songs I wrote in 2007 and 2008, in between writing The Snow Angels, Welcome to the Circus and Crucible of Ideologies, as well two tracks made in late 2006, meant for an album that never came into being (called Ikonoklazm), which were Someone's There! and Stone. Stone was also the last track that Robert Rumney worked on with Flat Battery. Much improvement in my mixing and performing skills can be heard throughout.

Track Name: Motion
Set in motion once again
Just to be overwritten
You cannot stop what you didn't start
But take it to heart

You wake up
You make up
Something to end this break-up

You fallen Madonna
You're chosen but you just don't wanna

Lose all ties
Lose all dignity
Lose all perfect smiles
Just to be
Track Name: A Dirge For Her
You speak
Of yesterday as
Sad and lonely and
Without a cure

You're sure
That this song is
Not worth singing
Why am I
Hypnotised by you?

Kiss your lips
And watch the whole world
Standing still

You are broken but
Time will heal your wounds my dear
Blue with eyes wide shut, but
Hopefully in time you'll see me

Like porcelain you've been worn down
Until it's not that hard to break you now
You frown, but
Dry your tears afore you drown

So this song's for you, here's hoping
That we're going to see this through

You are broken but
Time will heal your wounds my dear
Blue with eyes wide shut, but
Hopefully in time you'll see me
Track Name: Attention Deficit
The smouldering ground
Slave unto the blistering sun
No sky, just horizon

The ocean's not far
Somewhere it whispers on
The inscrutable whine of
A breeze in his ears

The predictable smile, because
Everything's perfect, but
He's just not there

Large crowded room
Full of interesting people
Full of lives, with
Tales to tell

The colours are bright, and
The music's just right
He can see it's just going to be
A wonderful night

A mumble beside him, and he
Turns to listen, but
He's just not there

No one knows just why
He's just not there
