Track Name: Sounds Like Spitting
Sounds Like Spitting

Keep falling out with the city
It’s getting easier now
To kick hard and then just pass straight out
See you later celebrator
Where’s that bridge to myself?
It got so boring I just had to ask
Is this really what we’re doing now?
Just smile and laugh

A perfect fucking tragedy
A song that bleeds
I guess we’re just born to believe
A shoe string of a dream
We spit at then leave
I guess we’re just born to deceive

What’s the secret?
We’ve been waiting for nothing?
It’s fucking high time
We get it right
What’s the reason?
Good god there must be a reason
Well that’s just fine then
But not alright.

Change a mind again,
I’m steady if you need a friend
I used to hear it all the time
Tell myself I’m fine until it’ll just go in.
Track Name: Life in Reverse
Life In Reverse

Throw me a line,
Throw me a line.
Fear chasing time,
Throw me a line.

Oh sit and settle, or sit and watch me first
Look for a change, inches from hurt
I like it better, than life in reverse
Blocked out a moment,
That should have changed me most,
Tied to a time, aching to burst
I feel it more now,
Than when it happened first.

Throw me a line,
Throw me a line.

Held back, choking on the ashes of what used to be your life,
I’m so sorry that you had to hide,
I hope one day you’ll be alright

There’s no, point in doing something that you never really liked,
You can plan and leave your life behind,
As if you’ll ever get it right.
Track Name: Watching Accidents
Watching Accidents

Oh what a day,
To go running out of sympathy
Watch them smile and walk away
Keep screaming this
Road becomes a precipice
It’s too bad it went that way

Ah brush it off, whatever
Like you should know no better

If you’re bored and tired of this
Show it as you push your left foot forward
I’m sick of hearing that’s just how it is
Sick of hearing that’s just how it is

Oh, to be real,
To be actual in a world you can feel
It keeps piling in
Like watching accidents you know you can’t stop
It’s too bad it went that way
Track Name: Puncher
Puncher

I hate that, it’s starting again
It’s like exploding inside my head,
Holding out to blow.

It crawls right out through my skin
When I’d never expect
I feel those days when I feel those days

I punched myself in the head
I used to do it a lot
I haven’t done it in years
And oh while time repairs the most of it
It’s still there and I’m still here
To understand or pretend
Another room full of just don’t get it
Oh my god what a mutual misunderstanding
Keeps me where I’ve been

It crawls right out through my skin
When I’d never expect
I used to let it take me over,
Thought I’d done with that itch
Now I’m back where you were
Before I’d ever escaped
And feel those days when I feel those days

I’ll tick along as if it never happened,
Shake it off like I never cared anyway
I guess it’s never too late
I guess it’s never too late, to blow

Hate that, It’s starting again
It’s like exploding inside my head
Holding out to blow
Track Name: Livid / Rise
Livid / Rise

Once again, a livid rise I can’t disguise so well
Hits me hard as hell
Yea we’ll change,
All I count on now is that we lie

Yet again, we’re striving to be ordinary

Oh to exercise my brain
How I’d love to feel excited again.

Restless restless restless
Dive right in,
Bash your brain around until it’s fine

Yet again we’re striving to be ordinary

Oh to exercise my brain,
How I’d love to feel excited again,
You don’t care
This draining climb,
Fuck I’d rather pull my eyes out than wait out all night.
Boring steady decline
Not this time.

We come unstuck and don’t know why,
Waking up from time to time,
“Oh it’ll be alright”
You let go, you let go
It’s too far to dream you know,
It’ll catch up as comfort grows
The same old songs we know
You let go, you let go.
Track Name: Manicomio
Manicomio

Could you please do that almost anywhere else?
I’ll second guess the way you’re feeling
Guessed you’d start to like the mess
To feel you’ve got a grip believe or pretend
It doesn’t matter if you get there
It’ll change before you rest

Still you think it’s funny that we
Smile through this tiny distress
I used to feel a lot like you
I used to feel a lot like you

My brain’s still ticking but my
Mind’s more a burden than help
The closer you get to yourself
The more you shake from the stress
There’s no one I dislike any less

Just tell me that you hate that
Please, just tell me that you hate them all
I’m sure it makes such good sense
Just say it’s good for us all
Dull heads and blurred eyes here to glaze and protect
As if there’s anybody in there
Say you’re not like all the rest

They bring the noise again
The stupid city boys
I couldn’t blame them there
Seemed like no other choice
A shitty mess to share
Parades without a voice
I couldn’t do much better
I couldn’t do much
Track Name: Machono
Machono

I keep forgetting how open
All my friends you are not to rush out
Not to play hard
When we go out
Give or take I’ll dance like a girl

I see it better now
They’re fucking out of their minds
Is still still happening?
It’s really happening

To run into the old familiar
That didn’t get that far couldn’t help it
Don’t mean no harm
We don’t discuss
Living so close
But so far apart

I see it better now
They’re fucking out of their minds
Is this still happening?
It’s really happening
And you can carry it round
Like it’ll never fall out
What you do to me
That’s what you do to me

See it as your best disguise
I see through it all along
I can see you any time
Track Name: Neutral Haste
Neutral Haste

We never, want to see however
This ends but there’s no choice
Here’s nothing, we’ll disguise as something
Tell yourself you’ll be fine

Big sets, they keep rolling in,
And they’re heavy.
That’s fine, I’ll say and resign,
But I’ll feel it.

Holding on, like you’re doing it wrong,
Like it’s something you shouldn’t say.
Oh when you feel that way,
You just feel that way.

When your colours running out,
When you’re cold, distorted and nothing
Fuck the ache that doesn’t doubt,
Doesn’t care or reason for no one
I am no one

Holding on, like you’re doing it wrong,
Like it’s something you shouldn’t say.
Oh when you feel that way,
You just feel that way.
Track Name: No Such Thing
No Such Thing

Sit aside and pretend to care,
I’m sure that you would if you had time to spare,
Like they’re already dead
Are you already dead?

Oh fucking hell there’s quite a lot to lose,
You like breathing air?
That’s funny, yea me too
Keep pretending to care
Are you really not scared?
I guess you’re already, ready.

A psycho vision of
Arms around ideas of things you need,
Don’t exist to the touch
Oh yea who needs a reason now
Hate’s a thing to trust
Drag it round like informed concern
For a people you love
And as we’re suffocating
One last,
Ah fuckin hell.
Track Name: Here and Now
Here and Now

Show me a better way
Show me a living breathing exit with no pain
Can’t you see we take ourselves too seriously
Oh please not that again

Looking for a reaction
That’s enough

Sounds like a million screaming children pleading
Why do we do that again?
Parents acting Mum and Dad
It’s always been this way
So that is that

Looking for a distraction
Sure enough, everyone needs a relief
Tear your eyes away
It’s just a screen
Or an honest reaction is that so tough?
Anything I can believe
What do you believe?
Track Name: Breathing Games
Breathing Games

Keep my brain, I want another
It gets worse as I get old
I couldn’t bear to look again
Scratch until it all comes off

Little bugs that hold on
Push them all away

Whip crack, paranoia
I feel it chasing again
Short sharp radiations
Shake and rattle on all day
We got it all just figured out
It gets worse when you know how

Let it in, When you’re practicing your sin
When there’s nothing wrong with anything
Or let it show, I see it punching at your skull
Or just hide and pray for anything
Thank fuck I’m so bad at remembering

Greedy thoughts they come around,
Chasing what we’ll never have
You could hope
Change your skin and let it in
Don’t chase a virtue to a sin
You could hope
