Track Name: Gone
well I got desperate when you were broken
clinging along to words you'd spoken

i know that my bones are aching
and I'm sick of waking up in strange places
but that's comfort in this cold
cos i'm lost
but i'll wait for the morning
cause you won't be up to find me

well I got desperate when you were broken
(cos you're the crutch that keeps me standing)
clinging along to words you'd spoken
(but this distance is demanding)

sorry that i wasn't here
i promise i'll be there next year
but you could never shed those tears
cos i won't be around
cos i won't be around

we'll wait for the morning

but i know these roads
like the veins on my hands

well I got desperate when you were broken
(cos you're the crutch that keeps me standing)
clinging along to words you'd spoken
(but this distance is demanding)

sorry that i wasn't here
i promise i'll be there next year
but you could never shed those tears
cos i won't be around
Track Name: Trapped Nerve
Wide awake, from the pain in your neck.
Keep your eyes on the road &
Forget what they say.
I hope the voices in your head only whisper today.
But I know they scream instead.
I hope the fire in your belly doesn't smoke out your brain.
We'll play hide & seek with the world on the other team.
Sleep for the rest of my days.
& I'd just wish the world away.

So chew me up & spit me out.
I'll hit the bed before I drown.
Restless nights, alone again.
That stabbing pain in your head.
You'd rather be home.
You'd rather be home again.
You'd rather be home.
With Trapped Nerves in your neck.

Cause you're the air in my lungs.
& I'm the tear on your cheek.
So i'll turn off my alarm so we can sleep.
Cause I wish you felt better.
(Cause you are better)
You are better than me.
On & on we're only getting deeper.
Too deep for you to see.

So chew me up & spit me out.
I'll hit the bed before I drown.
Restless nights, alone again.
That stabbing pain in your head.
You'd rather be home.
You'd rather be home again.
You'd rather be home.
With Trapped Nerves in your neck.

Sleep for the rest of my days.
& I'd just wish the world away.

So chew me up & spit me out.
I'll hit the bed before I drown.
Restless nights, alone again.
That stabbing pain in your head.
You'd rather be home.
You'd rather be home again.
You'd rather be home.
With Trapped Nerves in your neck.

I wish you felt better
You are better than me.
Track Name: Asleep At The Wheel
I'll buy some cigarettes
And smoke them on the beach
I'll walk home alone


And douse my whole bedroom in bleach
Because I feel safe
Behind these four brick walls
But my skins too thin so can I borrow yours?

It's just enough
To let you walk out of that door
Knowing you left your head at home.

I'll close my eyes but i haven't dreamed in weeks
I'll board up all of my windows
And sedate myself with sleep
Cause i'm not giving up, but not getting up
Still here and it's all because of me.

Because i wished it was bright
So i'll just wait for the light
I'm sick of hearing i'm wrong
Instead of hearing i'm right
I'm sick of hearing that everything is fine.

All i ever wanted to be was
Safe in the comfort of my own company
All that you ever needed from me
Was for me to be concious
And act like theres nothing wrong.

I'll close my eyes but i haven't dreamed in weeks
I'll board up all of my windows
And sedate myself with sleep
Cause i'm not giving up, but not getting up
Still here and it's all because of me.

I fell asleep with the weight of the world
Crushing me until i'm gone.
Track Name: Shade
I remember the day you discovered your shadow
You were in the back garden by the apple tree

What's your favorite color
What songs do you like
What makes you angry
And what makes you cry

You know that I mean well
But I missed your call & I forgot to return it
You gave me your love
Even though I've not earned it
Because you're good to me
And I deserve to see
How it makes you feel when I always leave
I hope that you miss me
There will be time someday

Apologize, I'll compromise
Avoid my eyes
I'd rather go back into your shade
But I'll miss your progress
From the mess that I made

Tell mom I'm alright
And tell dad I'm okay
Did you get the last card I sent on your birthday?
I wish that we were closer
I wish that you had known me
When I was younger
And understood the choices
That I've made
