about

Recorded during the summer of the third year of the Abbot/Turnbull administration.
Don't judge, though, what free nation hasn't had its adolescent flirtations with right-wing extremism? I mean, we've all done it, right?

Track Name: The Last Candidate
I'll be who you want 'cause I go by many names.
But don't be complaining when I start playing games.
Believe what I say but saying isn't believing.
So you should look elsewhere for your spiritual healing.

Come on, baby, you're my favorite one.
You're more equal than anyone.

A feeling so nice you had to try for it twice.
But don't be surprised if it all comes at a price.
You ask me for favors but I don't really know,
how far I can take this or how low I will go.

Come on, baby, you're my favorite one.
You're more equal than anyone.

I'll be going my own way.
Track Name: You Will Learn
Let's take up something new to chase away my blues.
Back down where I come from they have no minds to lose.

Nothing ever changes in the way you hoped it would,
In good time you'll learn the way to ask for what you should.

What kind of suffering would not apply to you?
It all comes down to what you're ready to live through.

Stop me if you've heard all that I'm saying here before.
Without rhyme or reason they'll be asking you for more.

Let's take up something new to chase away your blues.
Back down where you come from they had no right to choose.

Nothing ever changes in the way you hoped it would,
In good time you'll learn that no one really understood.

Did you ever notice that the rats are moving in?
In good time you'll learn the way to take it on the chin.
Track Name: While You Sleep
Won't no one stay with you?
Got no one watching over you?
Over you,
while you sleep?

Won't no one talk to you?
Got no one talking back to you?
Back to you.

Won't no one ask for you?
Got no one asking you to stay?
You to stay,
while they sleep?

Why no one talks to you?
You gave no reason for them to.
For them to...
Track Name: Impossible To Even Dream
Who calls across the seas?
Who waits for me?
Who carries off the stone,
they shackled onto my feet?
I won't forget you.
I won't forget you.

Who makes it hard to sleep,
impossible to even dream?
Who made it harder to look
back into the setting sun?
I won't forget you,
I can't forget you.

Who makes it hard to wake?
Impossible to even rise?
What makes it hard for me to look back
into someone's eyes?
I won't forget you,
I won't forgive you.
Track Name: When Morning Comes
Wait 'til morning comes,
I'll wake you one more time.
That sweet caress,
I'll never leave this place again, my friend.
'Cause it's all one moment passing through time
in my mind, in my mind, in my mind.

Say what you will of me,
I can't seem to get quite free,
of the softest voices,
you will never hear from me again and again.
'Cause it's all one moment passing through time
in my mind, in my mind, in my mind.

Tell me again,
why she don't want to see the signs?
Tell me again,
why she don't want to leave my mind,
alone.
Alone.

I'll tell you the truth now, babe,
I don't know what it is I'm doing.
When the echoes fade,
I can still hear voices calling out to me.

Tell me again,
why she don't want to see the signs?
Tell me again,
why she don't want to leave my mind,
alone.
Alone.

Wait 'til morning comes,
I'll wait 'til morning comes...
