"Mexican Wave" as written by Cormac Murray Battle, Darragh Butler and Colin James Fenelly....
Hello, I'm the same boy
The one you left behind
And if you find disturbing
I will eagerly rewind
Knowing what's important
Is everything okay?
Slowing down was helpful
But if only it was when

All is said and done
With the blame you would've hung
To be building all these years
What amounts to amounts to...

Fear of reinvention
Discoloring your eyes
If I can stare right through them
Who am I to recognise

Ailment's in the full
Fully blown's the way it looks
Can I make my meaning clear
No attention to attention

Hey Billy, yes it's me
Come around, we'll have a field day
A relay around the back
Hey Billy, ain't this sweet
I can't try to find a reason
To give you any slack
Hey Billy, hang around
I've a little box of raisins found
And if you like, I can make you feel alright
And undone

Now it's not so easy
Waiting baited breath
Fearing for the day when
The voices in my head
Giving up instructions
Intelligence is claimed
Leading up a garden path
Of where to who-knows-when

All is said and done
With the blame you would've hung
To be building all these years
What amounts to amounts to...

Hey Billy, yes it's me
Come around, we'll have a field day
A relay around the back
Hey Billy, ain't this sweet
I can't try to find a reason
To give you any slack
Hey Billy, hang around
I've a little box of raisins found
And if you like, I can make you feel alright
And undone

Head's spinning round
I can hardly touch the ground
And if I stand by your side would you mend?
Now now now now!

Hey Billy, yes it's me
Come around, we'll have a field day
A relay around the back
Hey Billy, ain't this sweet
I can't try to find a reason
To give you any slack
Hey Billy, hang around
I've a little box of raisins found
And if you like, I can make you feel alright
And undone.

    General Commenti think billy was a bully from times gone by who moved on and forgot about his victims "the one you left behind"...now he (cormac?) has come face to face with this person again and this person is in shock and wont recognise him as he (cormac?) has changed...although he (cormac?) believes he is "the same boy" yet now he (cormac) is tempted by revenge!

    General CommentThis song is actually about Billy Dalton, the original guitarist who played on the first album who was also a childhood friend of Cormac's. He had to quit the band because he suffered from terrible stagefright. He played on some of the songs on 'On the Turn' as well, but couldn't play live
