Track Name: Commonplace - No Avoid
No Avoid

Waiting on pages
Let me waste wages
Stack a week
to make an hour
A salary for a Sunday out east
Or cents for a shotgun lease
Two jobs and two ‘jobs’
Free work doesn’t pay rent

Stop start all day
Takes an a hour just to get away
So get a ten minute ride
No simple way round
Having numb legs, numb legs and fraught talk.
A mile never felt so long
With so much between
-
Could be/free
-
Pass people,
pass on people
Endless supply to move through
Up 7 floors, through welded doors
Always looking over shoulder

Sights to be seen
Recognised through square eyes
Raised fists to the east
Sun rests upon fake feast
And we covered ground
Laid concrete waste down
To bake in the heat at night

Smog in lungs, and smog in skies
No avoid of poison prise
No avoid of noise at night
fans, motors and new found plans
movement doesn’t cease

Drift lanes
Jump under trains
Walking feels like a dream
But looks like a freak
The ones that holla on the street
Preganant, defeated or living on a dream
Every feet gets you closer
To the excuse for staying here
-
Could be free
-
Free, free to come,
To come with me
oh come with me.
Same face most days
Knowing names is a treat
Pavement clean and
Golden sun on brick
Peace, peace holed up
With time to think
No rushing down of sand
To work is waste
Time turns to other ways
To impress is waste
Time turns to other ways
To trend is waste
Time turns to other ways
To stay for sake of face
Take time to other place
Track Name: Slowlight - Under The Radar
This is the day that I died
And I have not felt so alive
It took my whole life to realise
That it goes over and over.

You wanna let it all out
But they just say "shut your mouth"
Yeah together we are flying under the radar
Just checking in to check it out

Does gravity just get you down
Although the world revolves around you now
Keep your feet placed on the ground
Because when it's over it's over

You wanna let it all out
But they just say "shut your mouth"
Yeah together we are flying under the radar
Just checking in to check it out
Track Name: Slowlight - Tiger Science
Give me a signal give me the wave
All this interference will only get in our way
Look through the static and it's clear to see
You and I occupy our own frequency
I heard you shouting on the radio
So far away so long ago

I heard your voice through the white noise
It struck a chord
It seemed to scream is this real or is this just a dream
or maybe both

I saw your name in the liner notes
I searched forever to hear those words you wrote
So naive to go in blind so excited to see what I would find
Far too many drowned in the stream
They're all lost behind the screen

I heard your voice through the white noise
It struck a chord
It seemed to scream is this real or is this just a dream
or maybe both
