Track Name: Scars
I've got a feeling that you won't hide in your room as I wait alone
I saw your face when they told you,
You smashed up the chair where they sat you down
You're always down but you don't scare me now
And you won't stare me out

You've got a lock on your rib cage
But you've got a heart it just beats too loud sometimes
And no one can breath under water
You kick to the surface and pull me down
You're always down but you don't scare me now
And you won't shine a light right in my eyes
All you left behind were scars
Track Name: Why How When
With blood on your hands and a knife in your back
You don't know when you saw yourself last
If it wasn't you then why do you retreat
To memorize lines you could never repeat?

Only you know why

With a pen in your hand and ink in you heart
You don't know when you blacked out your scars
Those spelling mistakes you could never erase
Changed who you were but your face stayed the same

Only you know why

WHY?
HOW?
WHEN?

Only you know

WHY
HOW
Only you know
WHEN

Only you know

WHY do you travel for so many miles?
HOW do you know when you get there?
WHEN you want to be found
WHY do you hide?
HOW do you know they'll know where to look
HOW will you feel WHEN they see past your face
WHY would they care who you really are
or what it is that you really need
What is it that you really need?

Only you know why
Track Name: On A Paper Plane
It's dead this time of night
But I'll stay up and dream a while
Your face flashed on then off
It's all that I'd been thinking of
You were all that I'd been thinking of

I'd melt on your tongue
But you'd find it hard to keep me all down
When your stomach hurts
And you see the mess you've made one the floor
It's all they're waiting for
But all I'm waiting for is for you to speak to the god that I ignore

That angle you liked was just a second in time
But I'm a lie
And I'm just an idea don't think me out loud
Cos I'm a lie
Feet glued to the ground and it's your move now
But I'm a lie
And I'm a lie

Just tell them you're lost
They'll help you find the girl that you're not
And I'll still write you back
On a paper plane that flies through your heart
It's all I'm aiming for
All I'm aiming for is for you to reach for the ledge that I ignore
Track Name: Changing Times
Your eyes got lost behind
Smoke in the room and the cold damp hands of time
My face is turning white
But you don't look as pale as you used to be
You would blend into me now I....

Remember when we were friends do you
I remember when we were friends

Why is it happy memories hurt too much to think of them?
I wish I knew then what I know now, not much
An echo of a lonely voice
Or a footprint left in the snow that's melting is never ending

I remember when we were friends do you?
I remember when we were friends do you?
But I can't stand to be a part of you
But I don't want to be apart from you

The door was locked so I kicked it down
The road was closed we just walked the long way around

Please don't trace these wavy lines
Some things should fade with time
Close your eyes count back from 10
A ghost can live again
Track Name: May All My Delusions Come True
What a funny thing to say
I'm staring at your mouth and the strange yet familiar shapes it makes
My train of thought just got derailed
And you tied me to the tracks
Then you wave from your car as you drive past

And it's all that I've had
When it's all that you've had it don't seem so bad

Tell it like it is no holding back
I told you how it was you just got mad
May all your lies come true

Please fill out this questionnaire
We'll see what category we can squeeze you into uncomfortably
My Sunday morning has gone to waist
And there is no afterlife but I'll leave a bitter aftertaste

And it's all that I've had
When it's all that you've had it don't seem so bad

You tell me all these things it makes me sad
I don't pay £50 per hour for that
May all my dreams come true
Track Name: The longest Day
What will you do when you grow bored with me
When nothing is the way it used to be
Nothing is the way you want

If it's still the same then there's no need to ask
I still haven't found my place
The longest day i ever faced

Don't cave in
Cos I will follow you
No wonder it drowns me out
No wonder it drowns me out

What would you like to hear me say
That's the most important thing that you ever said
And if i could only listen and get it into my head
Every single word

Don't cave in
Cos I will follow you
No wonder it drowns me out
No wonder it drowns me out

I wish I could forget
I wish I could forget
Track Name: December Something
When you go away
I'll come with you, ok?
I'll hold open the door but i'm not letting go of your arm

The drink's wearing off
I'll carry you up
It's quarter to 12 and I've no way to persuade time to stop

Oh I don't know what I can tell you
When you look like you'd break if I held you
It's too soon

There's sleet on the ground
And that deafening sound
Is a heart beat that desperately needs to escape this routine

It's Thursday again
December something
Lets pretend that the kids are pretending to sleep listening in

Oh I don't know what I can tell you
When you look like you'd break if I held you
It's too soon to tell
If the directions we fell
Left us close enough to touch
Or were our hands ripped apart
Like paper dolls cut up
It's too often thought but never said
If you forget
I'll forget

I made a list of my regrets
I closed my eyes is it over yet?
I got your note but I can't reply
It's cold in the water and it's more then I can stand
Track Name: Wait In Line
He opened his eyes that day and he saw the same fucking wall that he always saw when he opened his eyes in the day time but now for the first time he walked through the door. He walked through the door that day and he heard the singing of birds. He didn't recognize the song but he hummed along and he liked it he got all excited and fell to the floor. The he looked up, he looked up. He looked so hard he could discard all the feelings he's been feeling for so long. She opened her eyes that day and she saw her new baby born. It was covered in blood but it filled her with love as she held her, it came for inside her so she praised the lord. And she looked up, she looked up, she looked so hard she could discard all the feelings that she'd been feeling for so long. They shut their eyes Monday and they cried. Their father had died. He was 40 years old and although that seemed old to the children, his wife had been with him drying his eyes. She couldn't believe the pain that he felt, or the hand they'd been dealt. It was only last year that they had never know fear, they were happy, this pain must be meant for somebody else. And she looked up, she looked up. She asked why good people die when we love them. Why did you take him? He read all of your book and followed all of it's rules when there is evil in this world and criminals to choose why did you hate him when he loved you for so long. De de de de de de de de wait in line. (repeat to fade)
Track Name: Cracked Lips, Dry Skin
be afraid, be very afraid of me
'cause i won't hide
'cause shadows lie
you see shapes and they seem real

it's do or die
it's just one more bite lets go
teeth erode
fingers down my throat
but i've swallowed all my pride

I'll drink to a future with sparking wine
just show me a future that i don't mind
my carriage awaits double parked in the clouds
just think of me fondly from inside out

i'm cracked lips, i'm dry skin, waiting
plant my remains in vitamins for strong bones and a sound mind
gravity you know me by now
you've pulled me back none of my limbs attached
i'm left helpless and paralysed

I'll drink to a future with sparkling wine
just show me a future that i like
my carriage awaits double parked in the clouds
just think of me fondly from inside out

i'm cracked lips, dry skin, waiting, waiting
i'm cracked lips, dry skin, waiting, waiting
waiting
waiting


i'm loose teeth and bleeding gums
i'm weak heart and aching lungs
poor sight but i'm not lost
i wish i wish i was
there's no strangers in this room
there's no flowers left to bloom
if your heart can pump my blood
then i wish i wish it would
if your legs could hold me up...
stop squinting in the dark
i'll always be here feeding off...
i never gave a second thought
to all i took from someone i love

are you alone?
are you alone? me too
no place to hide
when our own sad eyes
see things that seem real.
Track Name: No One Ever Listens To The Last Song
Feel such a fool, it's not like me too go raise my voice over nothing. Over no one. No lights are on, someone's missing. Don't raise you hand over nothing, over no one. Over nothing, over no one.
