Track Name: Amen
Let the surf slide open,

let the summer stand still,

let the girl in the car put the top down and turn up the radio,

let the music hover,

let the waves explode,

let two people mean everything they say for once.

Can I get an Amen? Amen?

let the waves turn to muscle,

Let the boat rock,

let the night go long to the knives shot from fountains,

let the surfboard snap,

let the sharks go loose.

And let the summer give up,

let's watch the summer dissolve.

Let the winter come and turn these fires to shadows.

Can I get an Amen? Amen?
Track Name: Etc Etc
They called off the search,
stopped dragging the shore,
And it's been dark so long
it doesn't mean anything anymore

The lights are all out in Christchurch
the city's gone smooth as ashes
You finally got rich and famous
and it didn't make much of a difference

They unplugged the amp
but the chorus stayed in your head
and she gave you her number
told you to call
but you never did

It's blue wolves and breakups
It's the curse of the coastline
it's the knives of the waves
grinding together all night

There are stingrays on the dance floor
and your stereo's on fire
and nobody cares that you've felt
the wrong way for a long time

Who needs the backbeat
Who needs the kick drum
Who needs a house on a street
and a heart that goes forward and backward

And the sharks are all loose
Looks like the tide's turned to silver
it's summer, you're done for
but you still love her
etc etc etc
