Track Name: Girl Mercury
Night followed me back home
Didn't know how much I'd miss it
Head bent low like vertigo
Just so I could kiss it

Hey little girl magpie
Wants the shiniest toy in the room
She screamed blue murder you must've heard her
Locked in the prison of the tune

Can you see through this thin disguise
Turn up the heat baby, watch me rise
Girl Mercury

You can't throw me to the dogs no
Cos I've been running with the wolves yeah now
Double back is my best attack
Wherever the riptide pulls me

So don't go starting those fires
Don't go testing my goodwill
That thin red line is a weak design
Got me climbing like quicksilver

Can you see through this thin disguise
Turn up the heat baby, watch me rise
Girl Mercury

So if you want a bit of madness
I'm more that happy to assist you
I got my dice and my best advice
And a willing Judas here to kiss you
Track Name: Pretty In Lace
Wish I could hear the siren
Soprano song for all the silent ones
Just as your temper's firing
Like the calm before a loaded gun

She was just a distraction
Something to soothe your empty little soul
A violent call to action
Something to kick you out of cruise control

And there's blood on the floor
And a bruise across her face
Oh but your baby, your baby
Looks pretty in lace yeah

I have tried to be honest
Turns out truth just doesn't make the grade
They want a smile and a promise
Another girl in a brilliant masquerade

There's a whole lotta trouble
Behind this poker face
Oh but this song, this song looks pretty in lace yeah

Its the order of the day
You take a flag and fly it
If you don't do sincere
Then you can go and buy it
Not many places left to run to
Not long before its gonna break
With every trophy hunter
And every selfie at a wake

There are those who lead us
And there are those who are willing to be led
We've got some self-claimed Jesus
With a barrel pointed at our heads

Sometimes the light gets through
And the picture's a disgrace
Oh but the lie, the lie looks pretty in lace yeah
Oh and this song, this song looks pretty in lace now
Yeah and your baby, your baby looks pretty in lace
Track Name: Josephine Knots
Tie the rope tight boys
Tie the rope tight
Lift up your eyes and draw down the night
This chain stretches long in steel and blue
In Josephine Knots from me to you

There's a harlequin moon the sky's heavy with rain
The touch of a hand the sound of a name
This thread runs the branches of every oak tree
In Josephine Knots from you to me

From the firstborn cry
To the last whispered breath
I was here at the birth
I'll be here at the death
In the eyes you remembered
And the smile you forgot
We are bound tightly with Josephine Knots

So give me your hand boys
At least just for now
I will hold you as long as time will allow
And when fingers slip and ribbons untie
Just look for those Josephine Knots in the sky
Just look for those Josephine Knots in the sky
