Track Name: Walls are thin
The wind blows cold
Sends a shiver down my spine.
I never stay at her place
She only comes to mine.
Things are pretty good
But they never seem quite right.
We never kiss
except at night.

Last night I went to Hana's gig
and it made me realize
Everybody suffers, everybody hurts
I could see it in her eyes.

The walls are thin
And the windows let the cold air in.
The chill runs deep
And I'm having trouble falling asleep.

I am colder
Than this moisture filled air.
I say it doesn't matter
But that's just not fair.
She would do anything for me, I'm sure.
I just want her to keep me warm.

The walls are thin
And the windows let the cold air in.
The chill runs deep
And I'm having trouble falling asleep.

Well I have a certain appreciation
But lack of passion and apprehension
Occurs when I have her attention,
Not to mention the missing affection.

For me this is new territory
There's no glory in this story.
Everything is temporary
That's what scares me
There's no clarity.

The walls are thin
And the windows let the cold air in.
The chill runs deep
And I'm having trouble falling asleep.
Track Name: Melbourne Ruby
Melbourne Ruby
Please speak to me
Or a smile is just as good.
I'm hypnotized
By those eyes
I'd kiss you if I could.
Your freckled skin
And tiny chin
Distract me from my book.
Across the aisle
We share a smile
Did you try and steal a look?

Maybe its obvious
I'm sure I'm incredulous
Will you be on my bus
back to the CBD?
Do you have a boyfriend?
Tell me will I ever see you again
after this plane will land.
I guess it's up to me.

Melbourne Ruby
You've done it to me
The thought it makes me wince.
Waiting for our luggage
I built up the courage to say 'Hi'
And I've loved you ever since.

Ruby the nurse
You're like a curse
Can't take my eyes off of you.
Realistically
you will forget me
but I know that I will never forget you.

At baggage claim you did proclaim you'd see me on the bus.
My bags got lost at such a cost that was the end of us.
Track Name: Operation
These words that I speak
Sure they come from inside.
They're what I know you want to hear.
Is there truth to these lies?
These words that I write
They are true so why can't I say them to you?
This scrawled black hole I'm living inside
Unable to see the light.

So open me up, I can't seem to do it for myself.
So open me up, I wouldn't let it be done by anybody else.

I know I should care for you greatly.
So treat me like a game of operation please.
Remove all of my parts and maybe we'll see.
If I can actually feel something.

So open me up, I can't seem to do it for myself.
So open me up, I wouldn't let it be done by anyone else.

Every nerve you hit
I don't beep.
You don't have to act
delicately.
Track Name: Gargoyle
I was a young man a long time ago
But you'd never know
Cause it doesn't show.
Maybe one day I'd feel that way again.
When, tell me when, I want this to end.

Speak, don't shout
Can't make a sound.
Walk, don't run
Stuck to the ground.
I'm a statue in the rain.
I'm a statue.

I am left here like a rock or a stone.
Resting alone
Left to erode.
My body and soul are so brittle and cracked.
The time has elapsed
There's no going back.

Speak, don't shout
Can't make a sound.
Walk, don't run
Stuck to the ground.
I'm a statue in the rain.
I'm a statue.
Track Name: Mirage
A mirage. Something that you thought you saw but didn't.
An oasis that you thought was there but isn't.
How my mind plays tricks on me.

You know that I'm a fool
And I'm crazy about you
But maybe I'm just crazy.
You are perfect
and you know it
and I think that's what scares me.

Are you real or are you fake?
Am I dreaming or awake?
Did I give or did you take?
Was it love or a mistake?

Every song that I hear, the lyrics seem to be about you.
Every book that I read, there's a character based on you.
And every time I see the sun rise
I think of you and I smile.

Are you real or are you fake?
Am I dreaming or awake?
Did I give or did you take?
Was it love or a mistake?
