about

Taylor previously worked alone on three albums, simultaneously performing, arranging, and recording; but this time he has brought a wealth of local talent along for the ride. Dave Alley’s deft touches on guitar, Miles Gillet’s trademark timings, Moik Brennan’s basslines, and conga by Darryn Bowyer-Warner, have all contributed greatly. Taylor’s trademark lyrics as usual pack a lot into a little, and the album conveys a much greater clarity of purpose than previous releases.

Track Name: Everything We Need
Take your shoes off
Before you enter here, if you please
Come and sit down at this round table
I think we have what you need

There's no need to beg
Or cut yourself deeply
There's no need to bleed
Just open yourself up and
Take it in slowly, let us
Plant that seed

In you, in me there's
Everything that we need x2

Take your shoes off
Before you enter here, if you please
I've got a feeling that you may not be
Upright when it's time for you to leave
Ah ah when you leave x 2

In you, in me there's everything that we need x 3
Track Name: Cage Door Open
Come over here my lover
Turn off that light
Let's use our hands to speak in
Some broken English tonight
Come now my crumpled secret
Written in reason and rhyme
Let's untangle the age old secrets
Hidden in your curves and spine

Cage door open

You're my lover you're my skin my darling
If you were a cliff I'd be fond of falling
You're subtle love well it's like a dream
Like some old cliche about a better me
You're my lover you're my skin my darling
If you were a cliff I'd be fond of falling
Your subtle love well it's like a dream
Like some old cliche about a better me

Cage door open
Cage door open
Open
Track Name: Ecstasy
I can see through the trees
I can see-he
There are no arms open waiting for me
There is no gate and no peace offering

Cos I believe in Ecstasy
I believe in the taste of you and me

Put your claws through my empty skin
Raise this carcass up and leave the skeleton
I have felt the purity of sin
And I am lost inside of your skin

Cos I believe in where we've been
In the gentle collapse and in the resurrection

Take the hammer, take your fickle offering
Add some fire and add a touch of suffering
I can see in you their soured longing
And in your sweet skin they envy everything

Cos I believe in where we've been
In the gentle collapse and in the resurrection
Track Name: Bury Me In Water
Bury me in water, bury me in clay
Bury me in your daughter, who came then crawled away
Burry me in culture, bury me in shame
Bury me with your lover, bury me with no name
Bury me in darkness, bury me in light
Bury me in bad blood, but make sure that you do it right
Bury me in an eclipse, in a bloodied slice of your heart
Bury me in your second hand sin that's been with us from the start
Bury me in taxes, bury me in Christ
Bury me under a butterfly wing or in the shadow of your crucified
Bury me in opinion, in your judgement, and your scorn
Bury me in black flames, on a white cross you were born
Bury me in blue eyes, bury me in lust
Bury me in politics, in your lame excuse for love
Bury me in sadness, bury me in rain
Bury me in your history that's been written by hands of pain
Bury me in a casket, that's made from skin and bone
Bury me please in the sacred dirt of this place that I call home
This place, that I call home
This place, that I call
Home
Track Name: Out
Like some days when the sun goes behind some cloud
Like some days when the quiet seems so loud
Like some bitter memory that won't go to ground
The wave comes in/the wave goes out

Like that tragic news that doesn't make the scene
Onto the front page of yesterday's magazines
Like the stolen child that's lost her tongue
Like that gentle man who helped to drop the bomb

The wave comes in and the wave goes out
Sometimes you whisper, sometimes you shout
Because the wave comes in and the wave goes/ out

Like the gull that can't seem to find his next meal
Like the head of some hawk crushed beneath the black wheel
Like the crooked hand the dealer's yet to deal
Like the child who learns early that it's ok to steal (no)
Because the wave comes in and the wave goes out
Is it the same ? Well I've got my doubts
Everything must change, the sake the skin the tree
There is no fate, no cure, there is no destiny

The wave comes in and the wave goes out
Sometimes you whisper, sometimes you shout
Because the wave comes in and the wave goes/out
Wave goes out
Wave goes out
Out
Wave goes out
Track Name: Separate
Separate the feeling from the pain
Separate the water from the rain
Separate the guilt that you feel
From the shame
Then give it all up so you can start/ again

Separate the skin and the tissue and the marrow
From the bone
Separate the lies and the blind patriotism
That you've been sold
Separate the water from the rain
Then give it all up so you can start/ again

Separate the freedom from the free

Track Name: Some People
Some people never die they just
Hide above us
Some people never fly they just
Lie down below us
You were a gentle suicide now you're
One of us
Some people never die they just
Hide above us

And they're a part of my life
Yes they're a part of my life
They're a part of my life

Some folk they walk on by without
Looking up up up
Some folk they never cry tears
Into their cup. Cup
Some folk they never laugh or
Even try to
They stumble through, they push on by they don't have
Time to see you

And they're a part of my life
Yes they're a part of my life
They're a part of my life

Rainbows don't listen to your kind of
Not making sense
There's a tiger who lives underneath
My son's bed
Rainbows don't listen to your kind of
Not making sense
There's a tiger that lives underneath
My son's bed

And they're a part of my life
Yes they're a part of my life
A part of my life

Some people never die they just
Hide above us
Some people never fly they just
Lie down below us
You were a gentle suicide now you're
One of us
Some people never die they just
Hide above. Us
