"Answers" as written by Andrew Iain Bews, Colin Doran, Andrew Iain Elliot Gilmour, Laurence John Hibbitt and Paul John Townsend....
And if your wings lay unbroken would they still unfold
And if we collaborate in synch then we would not fault
So you tempt me into being what's sought after
They lay in casts
They lay in casts
Where is the need to know?
I stop to think where you lost it
The chance was found and then thrown
Thrown away like before
So then you distance yourself from my mistakes
And a choice to adhere to you forsaken
And I cradle you in my own arms and wish
You can make your own away
You can make your own away
And I will ask of no-one

    General Commentthis is my favorite song on the debut album. "if wings lay unbroken would they still unfold" asks us whether if we never had conflicts would we be able to learn. in the song, Colin sings about how mistakes make us better people, but how they hurt us in the process and how there are times when we never learn. the last line "i will ask of no one" could show that we all have to "make [our] own way[s]" the the world and not acquire knowledge by asking, but by learning from actions
