Track Name: When I'm a Man
My only thing, adored and understood,
you've got a will I'd equal if I could.
You spend winter far away from home, spend it far away from home.

It triggers the task that dominates my days:
call up your form and shift it into phase. Darling ...
Spend winter far away from home. Spend it far away from home.

Honestly, I'm proud.
And if I was brave, I'd follow you anywhere.
If I was bold, I'd follow you anywhere.
If I was brave, I'd call on you anywhere.
Maybe I can when I'm a man.

Lonely or loved? I'm kind of both combined
living remote to maintain you in my mind. Darling ...
Spend winter far away from home. Spend it far away from home.

I'm honestly so proud,
and if I was brave, I'd follow you anywhere.
If I was bold, I'd follow you anywhere.
If I was brave, I'd call on you anywhere.
Maybe I can when I'm a man.
Track Name: Rest for Recreation
I, my love, was skeptical too.
But there's something in the barman's practiced cool, the colour of the chlorinated pool.
Yeah, I do know just what you mean:
there's something in the folksy open fire that lends the air an aspect of desire.

You look at the open sea and give me a guarantee.
You're rarely overcome when faced with such a setting sun.
I don't like the taste of wine. I take it to clear my mind,
to fill my head with heady stuff and choose to wrongly read the rush.

You, renewed, are strange in this light.
There's something in the polished hand I hold ... I forget that hurtful truths were told.
I defy the part that I play.
Cocooned in this corner of the world, you forget my eye for other girls.

I look at the open sea and give you a guarantee;
a staging of a show that closed its curtains years ago.
"No need for tears", you say. "If there's a sign of pain,
or any issues that remain, we're holidaying here again."
Track Name: Learn from the Multiverse
Now your voice has dropped, let's talk of the gift that you've got.
Move left, it's a different dimension.
Step right, it's different again, son.

Alms from up above? No, just the bent of your blood.
Move left, you're a noble inventor.
Step right, you're giving a lecture.

I put you through the wringer. I push too hard, I know.
But you're a gifted singer who's set his sights too low.
Why won't you accept it if I say it's so, given all I know?

Hear the warning bells sound out through my parallels.
Move left, a life uneventful.
Step right, I'm dying resentful.

Mine's an intellect never put into effect.
Never the industry leader, always an underachiever.

I'm qualified to make you better than your best,
the greatest of the copies, a consummate success.
Next of kin can't let you stomach something less.
Choosing to run counter to the tenor of your kind
breaks my heart to pieces as it overwhelms my mind.
Keep on as a quitter if you mean to see me cry out this all-seeing eye.
Track Name: Me, My Opus
I'm no bore.
I've chopped and changed, to be sure.
Been common or strange when called for.
Always been game to endure less pleasure than pain.

Never a need to lie. I fake it inside.
Never been a need to lie: I fake it inside.

Excuse me, sir.
While still her staid defender, I lovingly break against her.
That's where you locate what's tender.
Why can't you relate?

Never a need to lie. I fake it inside.
Never been a need to lie: I fake it inside.
There's never a need to lie. I fake it inside.
Have you never stopped to self-define, to autodesign?
