Track Name: Burn You Up
Swallow your words & maybe some teeth as well.
Cause we let the wolf in, but he never did a sheep well.
How do you fit it in?
How do you fit it all in?
How do you fit it in?
Do you hate me?
Do I just burn you up?
Do you hate me?
I hope to god you hate me.
Fingers crossed behind your back.
You poisonous snake, who taught you to lie like that?
You better get used to this, cause i’m going no where.
You better get used to this, cause i’m staying right here.
You’re a mirror with no reflection, there’s no end to your deception.
There’s blood on your hands.
So wash it off.
(Just wash it off)
There’s blood on your hands, so wash it off.
Fingers crossed behind your back.
You poisonous snake, who taught you to lie like that?
You better get used to this, cause i’m going no where.
You better get used to this, cause i’m staying right here.
You’d better get used to this
Fingers crossed behind your back.
You poisonous snake, who taught you to lie like that?
You better get used to this, cause i’m going no where.
You better get used to this, cause i’m staying right here.
You’d better get used to this.
Track Name: Lead Feet
Lead Feet Lyrics

How’ve you been? It’s me.
Long time no see.
Your voice sounds deeper.
I found your number in a box of my things.
I just wanted to see, how you were doing.
Cause i’ve been moving around a lot lately.
I’ve got all the pieces, but not the order they’re in.
Everything you ever wanted.
Was just out of reach.
When you’re swimming up the river.
With lead feet.
Forgive me father, for I have sinned.
I’m no believer but i’m sorry for what I did.
Left me here, for over two years.
I counted every day.
Everything you ever wanted.
Was just out of reach.
When you’re swimming up the river.
With Lead Feet.
Everything you wanted, left you displaced.
When all you drank was envy.
From a bottle of rage.
There’s no words, there’s no words.
(That need to be said)
There’s no words, there’s no words.
Everything you ever wanted.
Everything you ever wanted.
Was just out of reach.
When you’re swimming up the river.
With Lead Feet.
Everything you wanted, left you displaced.
When all you drank was envy.
From a bottle of rage.
Track Name: Laika
They say the truth’s your best defence
I'm bleeding just to pay the rent
& broken dreams mean nothing,
when you need something.
Just to get you through the year.
& now we’re moving out,
so pack your clothes, your books, your doubt.
& bring the piece of paper,
that I gave you, back when you were all alone.
Letters sent home.
With no return address.
I’ve got a bag full of old clothes.
I’ve got a bag full of stress.
I’m so sorry that i’m leaving
you so little to believe in.
Cause we had a house,
with a perfect door & a front room,
with the right decor,
& i came & wrecked it all.
I came & wrecked it all like I always do.
Cause I didn’t think & I poured your life down the kitchen sink,
with the dregs of yesterday,
& now i’m going to be late.
I’m sorry.
I’m so sorry that i’m leaving
you so little to believe in.
Just tell me, that you’re free, of your woes & of me.
There’s weather more reliable than me.
I’m calling base command as the last bit of oxygen runs out but;
they’re down there softly sleeping.
The sun sets over the Pacific region.
I’m sitting here hanging in the balance,
Just barely in the atmosphere.
I’m sitting here hanging in the balance.
Just barely in the atmosphere.
I’m so sorry that i’m leaving
you so little to believe in.
Just tell me, that you’re free, of your woes & of me.
There’s weather more reliable than me.
As lonely as Laika
Up there all alone.
You miss the atmosphere,
The stars are now your home.
Track Name: Cu
Slam on my breaks, & take us off the road.
Take off my sweater, cause the colds in my bones.
Sensor me & let me be, a piece of fiction for the rest of my life.
(Trapped under the ice, still under the ice)
Sensor me & let me be, a blessed burden till the day that I die.
(Trapped under the ice, i’m still under the ice)
Be me, be my everything, be the air that I breathe & ignore me.
Take me away, make me rue the day
that I told that lie & got my just desserts.
Don’t tell me that it hurts.
Lie to me (I’m the one you should blame)
Lie to me (Cause it helps with the pain)
& instead, I will pace against the fences in my head.
To stop me thinking.
Do you feel like, you’ve sailed around the sun one too many times?
So i’ll just let the waters just swallow me whole
Split open my head & empty my skull.
Bury myself in something i built.
I couldn’t see because the sun was in my eyes.
I’ve been sad since I was ten.
I wrote the book on giving in.
I feel the weight.
Lie to me (I’m the one you should blame)
Lie to me (Cause it helps with the pain)
& instead, I will pace against the fences in my head.
To stop me thinking.
Track Name: Broken Glass
Tonights the night to run a red light
Drive past the words & continue despite.
Despite what he said & the fact that he begged you to swallow your pride.
Just this once. Just this once.
Save tonight
Save the show
Broken Glass & Broken Bones.
Tonight, is all you’ll know.
Show them how fast you can go.
Please slow down, you’ll roll us both over.
The last that I heard, hell had froze over.
You lost your war
You lost your race.
They severed your pride.
Left a hole in your face.
Save tonight
Save the show
Broken Glass & Broken Bones.
Tonight, is all you’ll know.
Show them how fast you can go.
So just swallow your pride & cover your head.
Because you’re in the fast lane, to a hospital bed.
You risked it all
How fucking dare you.
Still show your face.
(How fucking dare you)
Track Name: Kill Your Conscience
The face of a bare white wall, in a bathroom stall.
Was so familiar to me.
All those evenings worrying myself to sleep.
I haven’t got a single secret, no I couldn’t handle one.
Every unit of pressure was one Pascal more than I could handle.
It’s safe to say, the weight is heavy.
it keeps me safe, it keeps me steady.
It’s safe to say, there’s no monsters left under my bed.
Lately, i’ve been trying to get my head around the people that live in it.
Out of sight, out of mind is an idea I find is easier said than done.
It’s easy so relinquish me from the guilt thats overwhelming.
I’m always sorry for something I never did.
Scared of my shadow so i basically hid.
Lately, i’ve been trying to get my head around the people that live in it.
Out of sight, out of mind is an idea I find is easier said than done.
I’m always sorry for something I never did.
Scared of my shadow so i basically hid.
But I couldn’t look away, so my shadow stayed.
(So give up, so give up you’re dishonest)
They said “We’ve got your number & know where you live”
(So give up, so give up you’re dishonest)
"We know that you’re in there, so let us in."
(So give up, so give up you’re dishonest)
Lately, i’ve been trying to get my head around the people that live in it.
Out of sight, out of mind is an idea I find, is easier said than done.
Track Name: Forget Me Not
Another year on, will you remember my name?
Will you still live here and will you still be the same?
I know it makes you cry when you think about death
But I'll hold your hand, so don't be scared

It started off slow, you forgot where you put things
And by the summer nothing else was distinct
I know it makes you cry when you think about death
But I'll hold your hand, so don't be scared

I'm trying to remember
Forgot the date of your birthday
But I suppose it doesn't matter, you won't remember anyway
I'm trying to remember the fucking date of your birthday
But I suppose it doesn't matter, you won't remember anyway

When I caught my hand in the kitchen draw
(When you bandaged it and you gave me more)
Of the things I love but would't ask for
(I still picture you by the bathroom door)
And the walks we took because I adore
(All the things you say and the way you talk)
I just hope you're happy where you are

I'm trying to remember
Forgot the date of your birthday
But I suppose it doesn't matter, you won't remember anyway
I'm trying to remember the fucking date of your birthday
But I suppose it doesn't matter, you won't remember anyway
Track Name: This Song is Dedicated to Nobody
Let it go, let it go.
We’re just doing our job, yeah next month there’ll be progress for sure.
Yeah, for sure.
We’re just taking our time, everything’s going fine just stay calm.
Take your so called job, & all your rhetoric, your so called perspective.
Cause we got this far without your help, we don’t need you at all.
A little more, next week for sure.
We’ve got your livelihood clasped in our hand.
You’ll work when we say so & stand when we tell you to stand.
Give it some heart, I know it’s hard.
There’s been some confusion, we’ll have to go back to the start.
Take your so called job, & all your rhetoric, your so called perspective.
Cause we got this far without your help, we don’t need you at all.
If you could only see, just what it means to me.
Would you still be leading us blindly?
If you could only see, just what it means to me;
Who the fuck did we think you’d be?
The next three years depend, on the way you all pretend.
To be comfortable & in your own with this charade.
Give up your icy stare & go sit over there.
Not everybody’s out to get you.
Give up your icy stare & go sit over there.
Not everybody’s out to get you.
Track Name: Stop Trying, Be Nothing.
Stop trying, be nothing
Have your own mind, do your own thing.
Forget friends, forget dreams
Rip your expectations apart at the seams.
You don’t need to be anyone or anything.
You’re your own, you’re yourself.
You are nothing & you’re everything itself.
The light spills from the window & dances on your skin.
You are a story & I am the beginning.
Say those words to me, say them like you mean them.
Nothing like playing dead.
You’re the apple on top of my head.
So just keep still, i’m not holding my breath.
Light from the window, shines in the dusk glow
Skin cold as the snow, but softer & paler still.
You’ve been drinking, you’ve been drinking way too much.
I’ve been thinking, i’ve been thinking way too much.
Say those words to me, say them like you mean them.
Nothing like playing dead.
You’re the apple on top of my head.
So just keep still, i’m not holding my breath.
From the cold nights, to the big fights.
It’s worth it just so I can see you smile.
& that glint in your eye.
From the cold nights, to the big fights.
It’s worth it just so I can see you smile.
& that glint in your eye.
Track Name: Fossa
It’s hard to see when the streetlights are out.
I’ll get a gas lamp & visit the house that you grew up in.
I’m burning it down.
I’ve got the answers & you’ll be my kill.
I’m sorry you’re a victim of my will.
Now my rooms been bleached i’m burning it down.
There really is no sense in diffusing all the tension,
when it’s all we have, it’s all we have right now.
Do you feel low, are you feeling low?
(Are you still listening)
To the sad songs on the radio?
(Are you still listening?)
Well can you taste the gin?
Well I can’t taste anything.
I’m obsessed with myself, i’ll put my picture on my shelf.
& I won’t look at someone else until I smash the frame this evening.
A letter that I wrote you.
A cobweb on your door.
A broken plastic window pane lying on the kitchen floor.
A broken dirty mirror that’s hanging in your hall.
It’s been lying to your face since the day that you were born.
Do you feel low, are you feeling low?
(Are you still listening)
To the sad songs on the radio?
I’m sorry those numbers are getting you down.
I care more about the lines you wrote than the ones that make your frown.
I’m sorry those numbers are getting you down.
I care more about the lines you wrote than the ones that make your frown.
There really is no sense in diffusing all the tension,
when it’s all we have, it’s all we have right now.
Do you feel low, are you feeling low?
(Are you still listening)
To the sad songs on the radio?
(Are you still listening?)
All i’m asking you is,
am I on your mind today?
Or since i’ve been away has it got worse?
All i’m asking you is,
am I on your mind today?
Or since i’ve been away has it got worse?
