Track Name: Watching The Worlds Collide
you got it wrong
there never was a piece of the pie
there was a song
I wrote for you while I was inside

and dear for you and me and baby
I go back each night
for the light show
watching the worlds collide,
satellite radio
watching the fires light

there was a word
and no-one had to say it at all
there was a bird
and someone had to teach it to talk

and dear for you and me and baby
I go back each night
for the light show
watching the worlds collide,
satellite radio
watching the fires fight
satellite radio
you got it wrong
Track Name: Dig
if you've ever
failed to set the room on fire
lend me your ears,
'cause I've had twenty-seven years
of kicking cans down the road,
digging holes and fitting moulds

tonight I feel like breaking habits kept for years

I'm into the dig,
you're off like a finch
we'll meet on the level
often it is said
off the top of my head
advocating the devil

if you've ever helplessly tried
make it the last time you took the hard line

if you ever
swap your hat it'll be alright
the one that fits
won't always come in black and white
dug a hole 'cause you couldn't wait
put another one on the slate

tonight I feel like it could never be too late

all of that bait
dressed up like bait
needn't wait
any more
