about

This unique collaboration between two artists shines light on the creative process of song making. It began with one set of lyrics. Then each artist used those lyrics to compose his own songs. Neither artist knew what the other had created until the recordings were finished.

Track Name: Keyesport Road (St Pauls Voltage Parade)
Verses:
Aging fast, growing up slow
Ten years later, can you tell me what's changed?
When does anything change?

Miles apart, close at heart
Season after season, I swear we're just the same
Aren't we forever the same?

Reaching out, never reaching
The door is shut, I still have a key
You know I still have a key?

The sun goes down, my soul fills up
A decorated sky, I remember your name
Do you remember my name?

Chorus:
It's a lost cause, what once was
Kid yourself, go on and kid yourself

Bridge/Optional Addition:
Don't look back
It's all coming back

Reaching out, never reaching
The door is shut, I still have a key
You know I still have a key?

A decorated sky, I remember your name
Do you remember my name?

Track Name: Sinner and Stoner (St Pauls Voltage Parade)
Verses:
I'm a destroyer
Nothing but a sinner and stoner
My insides are black and my outsides are cold
Even when I'm smiling

I'm a brick wall
Nothing but a liar and loner
My heart is damaged and my head is thick
But I'm going places

I'm a demon
Nothing but a monster and moaner
My eyes are red and hands are hard
And I'm in love

Chorus:
Oh Lord I'm in trouble
Oh Lord I'm in over my head
Oh Lord won't you save me
Won't you save me from myself

Bridge/Optional Addition:
Save me, save me, save me
I didn't mean to choose this path

But I'm going places

I'm a demon
Nothing but a monster and moaner
My eyes are red and hands are hard
And I'm in love

Chorus:
Oh Lord I'm in trouble
Oh Lord I'm in over my head
Oh Lord won't you save me
Won't you save me from myself

Track Name: Something You Should Understand (St Pauls Voltage Parade)
Verses:
Don't be shy
You'll be alright
Just think about how happy you'll be
You're life's been changed
It's time he get's the same
Bury all your guilt and memories

Now's the time
Enjoy the ride
In the end you'll always wish you had
Beneath it all
There's no place to fall
Someday you'll see it was just your head

Say goodbye
Please don't cry
What's done is done, there's no going back
You did what's right
Eye for an eye
Look ahead and don't dwell on the past

Chorus:
Son, there's something you should understand
If you can grow a beard, then you can kill a man

Bridge/Optional Addition:
It's sad you won't be with her
Just because you pulled the trigger
But you did even the score

Track Name: I Keep Moving (St Pauls Voltage Parade)
Verses:
I lost my way a million miles ago
Where I'm going only God knows

I miss seeing you along the way
I keep hoping I'll see you again someday

My load's heavy but I don't complain
There's nobody but me to blame

It's a long way home if I had to guess
It doesn't matter I put those fears to rest

From time to time I think of where I've been
All the people, places and sins

Chorus:
I keep moving
Yeah I keep moving on

Bridge/Optional Addition:
Where I am today and where I'll be tomorrow
Is exactly where I'm supposed to be
