Track Name: I Think I'm Done
On your feet and upbeat
Say how you feel is unoriginal.
Look past your now steady hands.
The current news will just bring you down.

Some will rage and some will gain
And feel the warmth of a thousand suns.
All the news I can't take.
Are we still smiling at the sun?

You're not the only one who feels lonely.

Don't think I'm done with being unoriginal.
Don't think I'm done with being miserable.
Track Name: Dead Skin
Did I ever catch a glimpse of me as I stumbled through the days?
In my head and, yeah I thought I might be dead.
I thought I might drown so I learnt to dive deep down.
And I left the old me somewhere in the east China sea.
Did you know that you were there to fill my lungs with air?

I'm hopeful. I'm desperate.
I'm coming up and I'm falling.
I don't wanna go but I wanna know
What would I be like without me.
Yeah, I wanna know.

I don't belong singing these songs.
But it all moves on just like a glitch on the spectrum.
And out of sight isn't always out of mind.
But in time I'll learn what's right and what I never want to be.

So I'll shed my skin and I'll grow new lungs.
And remember what I am not, Yeah...

I'm hopeful. I'm desperate.
I'm coming up and I'm falling.
I don't wanna go but I wanna know
What would I be like without me.
Track Name: Scared
Come and find my head now.
Screw it on before it's off again.
And are the words I say filled with discontent?
Am I scared of it all just being a dream in my head
And when I wake up will I have just messed it up all again?

In the end you're out of view. A lesson learnt but nothing new.
You're out of view and all I wanna do is get to you.

I'm scared of being dumb and I'm done with feeling numb.
Can you be the one who makes me feel again?
But what's self doubt when you're waiting for nothing?
Picking up piece by piece by piece by piece.

In the end you're out of view. A lesson learnt but nothing new.
You're out of view and all I wanna do is get to you.
To keep the rot away. Inside for another day.
Track Name: Searching For The Man
I'm just searching for the man to take me south.
Down to a town that's on the wild side.

But bury my head instead and hurry up and wait some more to work.

Swaying in the breeze captured straight and saved to memory.
It's quiet now you're half the world away.

But bury my head instead and hurry up and wait some more to work
Track Name: Old Friend
Feeling like a stranger when I'm talking.
With such a familiar past I'm delaying from asking to go ride on the flat
I'll split my arm wide open. You'll climb onto the metal.
I've got a mouth full of sand and is it just in my head?
In my head?
Or is there something wrong my friend?

It's not better losing touch.
Witnessed the break but has it healed?
Broken bones and dirty strings I miss my old friend.

With the worries in your head.
Take a step back from it all so you can see it through.

I don't know what you will say
Not ready to fall. It's all up to you.
I miss my old friend. My old friend.
Track Name: Repeat
Footsteps in the corridor.
Staring at the light on screens.
Eyes twitch and minds rotate.
Can't think, only repeat.
And I feel sick.
Can't think, only repeat until it's over.
Give time to breath.

And I want the time
When the seasons change the snake's grip feels the same
And I feel sick
Daydream away
Curse the night and walk home slow
Let time decay
And I feel sick

I couldn't help myself. Couldn't think, only repeat.
I couldn't help myself and I feel sick.
Track Name: Action At A Distance
Hey, did the words bring you down again?
Hey, are you waking up at all today?
When the voices that you hear feel so jaded and full of shit
The irony of being so cynical
You're so much better than you know
But the days that you would've stayed have gone away

Get up and get gone before it finds you
Don’t waste away, yeah not today
With your feet on the ground

A misled love out of focus
And a tender soul that was meant to grow
Turn away from the things that make you low
It hurts but that's control.

But if I never see your smile again, at least I saw it then.

Get up and get gone before it finds you
Don’t waste away, yeah not today
With your feet on the ground
I’m lost in love and you’re out of it
For the reasons I do get but I never said I’d handle it

And I can’t be in your company
And if you fall, would you call on me?

Low. High and anxiety.
I can’t be without your company
Just want a bit part. More than a bit part.
Just want a bit part. More than a bit part.
Track Name: Control
Fray around the edge.
It’s all the same to watch the wall decay.
A photograph kicked me back down today.
And if they stare is it fair to care?

My sight goes black, my voice will crack.
My mind will turn blue with thoughts of you.
And the stranger in my room won’t go away.
The silhouette gets closer and grows older.
Take me away. Reflections grey.
Take me away. Away. Away.

The senses drain.
The senses drain.
The sense is drained to keep control.
And I’m afraid of what’s below for bad dreams to grow.
The senses drain.

Bad dreams of you and me always seem to make me lose control
Bad drams and the muscle memory slowly seem to fade out
For another day. Further away.
Track Name: Get Better
Will I go crazy waiting for you to call?
Sitting home and watching TV has never felt so dull.
Things don’t seem so fun when you’re not around.
Forget that what stays just stays the same because it’s better out of our heads.

So far away from what I wanna say.
So far away to hear it.

Will I lose sleep waiting for you to call knowing I’ll wake alone in the morning?
I’ll toss and turn all night and reason that there’s something wrong with me.
So get better and don’t take it so personally.
Would a former self carry on and throw caution to the wind?

So far away from what I wanna say.
So far away to hear it.
I’m not gonna crack or let it weigh on my back.
I’m not gonna crack.
Track Name: Oh Well
I’m sorry that it took me so long to realise that you were gone
To piss and moan about something. Maybe I should run and hide
Do you ever still think about grey matter and medicine?
Did someone find a heartbeat to check if it’s dead inside?

It’s not easy letting go when the best is yet to come
Are we running away?

Remember in the snow when you were down and low?
Yeah, I should’ve stayed. Yeah, I should’ve stayed.
But I can get stuck on regret and running circles in my head.
Remember what the lions said after they were fed.

Let it come undone. Be the best in your setting sun.
Will I ever know another one like you?
Get over start over now.

My hollow head you’ll soon forget
When there’s nothing to say but oh well.
So oh well.
