Track Name: The Big Bad Wolf (No North)
as i lay me down to sleep my brain is treated
to a vivid unrelenting horror show
death is tireless pursuing me as i attempt to flee
he finds me wherever I go

i pray for just one ray of daylight
but my hopes are dashed
i scream into the night but i can’t break
the silence of the past

mirror mirror in my mind
oh won’t you please just leave behind
the child looking into you?
the big bad wolf outside the door
beside his bed is there no more
is there no more that i can do?

well not a day goes by whose nighttime
gives me any rest
you don’t know what’s supposed to be the crime
how can you confess?
i got to round up all the creatures in my mind
that make a mess

you sleep a third of life away
so you better count the days
Track Name: Surrender (No North)
why comes and it goes
we avow, we surrender our lie that we know
which way it’s supposed
to be we become over and under below

i don’t know whether i ever knew

let’s go on a stroll
a long way beyond old town and canal road
we’ll find a tree that we both like
to see what and why the same future will hold

when we’re old how will i remember you?

i try but i can only do so much violence to the past and to you
and the why of it all takes so much time in a dream
maybe it’s a comfort that death has a life of its own
under my breath
i find there isn’t much left i can believe

let’s go on a stroll
i don't know
if i’ll ever see you again
Track Name: Cheeky Wallaby (No North)
i know how you grew
the way you hold yourself and use
your hands and i swear there’s something
small and strong all over you

you’re a mystery to me

you made me love you
i didn’t think it would be so soon
it’s hard for me to leave just taking
what you helped me find anew

you’re a mystery to me

i just wanna bring you home with me
oh but baby you can’t go i know
one loss always replaces another one
but i’m glad it was you

you’re a mystery to me
Track Name: Castle of Lions (No North)
living out of a suitcase
in someone else’s house
scared and buried in a pile of laundry
in the hall closet like a mouse

fighting Koopa Troopa
in the Vanilla Dome
i wonder whether Cliffjumper and the rest
are ever gonna make it home

between the pounding on the door
and in my chest i pressed against the floor
i still remember how the room lit up
