Track Name: Frosty Window, Fish, Whale, Friend
Oh the window at the highest height
Takes you by surprise
Takes you by surprise

Oh the window you see it all in
Is not the same window where it is happening
And you see it all
And it takes you by surprise

Oh the window that you're looking through
Is not the same window wheres it's happening

Take a long breath
And take a long hand from your friend
Take a long breath
And take a long hand from your friend
Take a long breath
And take a long hand from your friend

Put your arms out by your side
Make the noise of an airplane going down with your sigh
Going down with your sigh
Going down with your sigh
Going down with your sigh

And if we lay on the ice and it breaks
I will follow you down
I will learn how to survive

As a fish
As a whale
As a multi coloured friend

As a fish
As a whale
As a multi coloured friend

As a fish
As a whale
As a multi coloured friend
If you are sighing I will follow till the end

If you are looking through a window it will be pretend
The windows an aquarium
Track Name: Keep Repeating Keep
Reach in
And find the ringing
If I don't answer
I will not miss a thing
I can't hear the bells
Ringing inside
If I don't answer I won't miss a thing
I am happy with this
I am happy with this
Keep repeating
Keep repeating this

I am happy with this

Keep repeating
Keep repeating
Keep repeating
Keep repeating

I feel a hand on my forehead and it feels the same
Track Name: Wizard Whispers
I have put everything I know into the fire
Little reflections of my own desires
I know how it feels to be alone
So lend me your own fingers

And in time
We will know
And in time
We will know
And in time
We will know

Thought I was a stable boy
Caught crying near the horses
Wanted to be a wizard
Softly in the night whispers spells that it'll be alright

Whisper it'll all be alright
Whisper it'll all be alright
Whisper it'll all be alright
Whisper it'll all be alright

I am growing arms
Out of my head
Doing all the things I would have said
(All the things I would have said)
Putting you
Wondering why
Three wise
Bring gifts
To a baby not a king

I don't know what half of these words mean
But I'll accept them cos they're better than the thoughts that stay inside your head
Track Name: The Snowiest Huffing Train
The train slowed down to a halt
In the snow, no one knows
The lights flicker on and off
Are we great wizards or ghosts?
Holding off yesterdays paper
As another day goes
Down the carriage the driver goes, offering nods and apologies
"I'm sorry we've gone so slow, but this isn't slow! We've just stopped in the snow" - He's trying to stretch the truth.
Putting on a performance
The day before Christmas
I lean over and catch your smile
As you look at the frosted window
Nothing to see but a hint of your own reflection
And I hope we stay a while
So I can think of a conversation that will sustain
And bring heat to this part of the carriage
We are stuck in the snow
We won't be able to go for much longer

In simple terms: we are just a train in the snow.
But what will this mean in time?
When we pick up speed
In simple terms: we are in a train stuck in the snow.
But what will this mean in time?
In simple terms
In simple terms
Clink Clank
Clink Clank
The train starts to pull away

I will miss the slither of the reflection
Frozen in the carriage
4/5ths of the way down before we forgot to get out
Missing

(Then a few shitty clicks as I don't know how to end the song)
Track Name: Tree
I offer a hand
It goes further down than I ever could have imagined
Everything is falling off the Christmas tree
All the ornaments around me
And I'm worried I'll never put it right
But the angel at the top is still shining bright
I wonder it sees that I can't quite

The sharps of the tree
Are covered in green
I use it to open myself up
And I bleed out green as well
I'm a tree as well

I am a tree as well
And I seek light
And I seek light
I seek light
I seek light

And I bend down to the floor
And pick all the baubles up
And eat them one by one
They don't go down easily
But I complete the task
And now the tree is bare
But I feel full inside
I am a tree
and I seek light

The angel is smiling discreetly
So polite to stay with me
As I bleed green
Such a Christmas treat for me

(Myles tries to whistle)
