Track Name: something to regret
leaving now
i used to love this part of town
but i don’t wanna stay here
i don’t wanna be here now
piled up with ammunition but i found
there’s no need to say it
there’s no good in lashing out
we’d do it all again
if we could help it anyhow
we all need something to regret
we all need someone here and now
Track Name: world explodes
pacing round, knowing you’ll
be coming home, pretty soon
i’ve a good way of knowing
nothing good, is really coming now
here it is, i always thought
i’d be excited when the world really explodes
now it’s here i’m not so sure about it

we’ve come a long long way
to just start again
it’s getting harder not to wonder
if all my friends are going under

do you feel real bad?
i guessed you would
i wish i didn’t know so well
it’s gonna hurt like hell
and then keep going
oh what did you expect
is there anything you regret
our funny way of showing
what you do with you?
i want you back
Track Name: no one else
when they get chills, it makes me sick
when i’m all hopeful, it dies quick
is there some other way?
is there some other way out?
and while i’m sure glad, i’m not like them
i find myself alone again
thinking up other ways
thinking up other ways out
my fears were mulitiplying, i had it bad
asked what you’re thinking cos i wanted to know

i want you, i want you and i want nothing else
i meant you i didn’t mean to descibe you as an object
you know i’m better than that
i meant you, i meant you i don’t want no one else
i like the way you held my hand
when i said i hated them, i was so glad

and all the boys in the band are just boring me now
all singing that shit they don’t understand
“oh come on let’s change the world”
just as soon as we’re done here hitting on girls
come on come on now it’s oh so obvious now
that i always felt strange, and liked it somehow
you’re so impossible, you’re so impossible

my fears disintegrated now i just feel mad
he keeps on talking, no i don’t wanna know
Track Name: your dreams
when we look back on this heart attack
and you retain it was alright
if it was that much fun
we’d be carrying on
but it seems we’re going our seperate ways
thought it’d get better but we’re
feeling the same again
will you feel better without me?
you feel so far away and it feels serious

by the time we quit i was feeling that sick
trying to make some sense out of any of it
never acted bad, while i’m saying that
i barely remember anything
hoped for the better now we’re
feeling the same again
will i feel better without you?

you feel so far away and it feels serious
while you’re lying right next to me
but i can feel you turning away
i hear you breathing but it’s
not me you’re dreaming of
you feel so far away
Track Name: hippy shit
you stare so hard
i felt you looking right through me
i try and close my eyes
didn’t do anything, i could run
but that would just hurt your feelings
tell you how i feel before i leave you believing
i’m not the one you want
wish you could see it
it’s just i’m not as nice
as you seem to be thinking
so don’t go telling your friends
about oh how this one is different
soon you’ll be regretting
wishing you could forget it

oh i’m not heading where you wanna go
i’m not heading where you want
i like you but it’s better when i’m on my own
everything is better when i’m on my own

some hippy shit
like i’d be down with most anything
it’s a stretch
and we keep doing the same thing
and all your tears to come
will tell you i’m no better than that
it hurts to think one day i’ll be to do with that
i’m not the one you want
i wish you could see it
it’s just i’m not as nice
as you seem to be thinking
so don’t go telling your friends
about oh how this one is different
soon you’ll be regretting wishing
you could forget me
Track Name: i know i knooow
kick out a forced crooked smile
leave it to hang out
while i’m thinking i’m bored of this shit
“how’s it coming? i’m excited”
i forgot we’d even started it
yea i know i know i know
oh no no you got me wrong
cared enough to lose the gist
well i don’t think it’s coming back
no i don’t

moral panic and ground-swell exposes
the most of my slips and the guilt
eerie sense of self-assurance
freedom til the doubt slips over it
stuck around for too long too long
electrical hum and persist
by the time they came around
i’d been and gone and lost my shit
oh i know
Track Name: dipping out
i can’t do anything
can’t do anything , with you in here
so sure you had seen the best of me
now all that’s left for me
is to let you down, i do it so well
a long way down to anywhere now
we’re not designed for talking
and hell i’m not designed so well

i only smoke to dip out
a reason to slip away
and while you’re talking and laughing
i’m just running away
i feel so boring anyway

i apologise if i’m
useless and vague but oh
it’s become so clear
just watching myself from somehwere else
there’s such a disconnect
and i’ll let you down
i do it so well
a long way down to anywhere now
the tructh is we’re not doing so well
we’re not doing so well
Track Name: you explaining
YOU EXPLAINING

went right over my head, you explaining
i’m falling short, miscommunicating
we’re not not quite over it yet
but we’re doing alright
found a long long letter from you
gave me somehting to think about
and slightly misconstrue
not quite over it yet

settled down, til you came in debating
i left the room, mid conversation
i know you’re doing about
as much as you can do
things were going pretty good until
i found a reason to speak again
and of course i started
to not quite over it yet
Track Name: skin peels
you sit and fiddle with your phone
i’m staring right up at the ceiling
if i try just hard enough
i’ll blow the thing clean clean off
i used to feel alone, before i went it on my own
those shitty magazines
constructing more terrible feelings
the “i will never look like that”
“who’s is this skin and will you help me take it off?”
i tried yea no it won’t come off

if you need a reason to leave
that makes two of us
that makes you and me
if you need a reason to leave
that makes the two of us

i was fine til they got here
now i’m just dying over everything
all about my stupid hair
well i think
you’re so fucking ordinary
no one cares
no no one cares
Track Name: whatever works
WHATEVER WORKS

tell me i’m nothing
a ball of inconsequantial dust
a movement of carbon and wet air
causing a fuss
telling me i’m anything
a chance to implore for sense of worth
tell yourself anything you want
if it’ll work

i thought we’d learn by now it won’t work
i couldn’t tell you how
i got so under your skin
couldn’t think of anything much worse

seeing you about town
seeing as you found your heart
i wasn’tready for that
like your back and it hurts
we carry it on anyway
with any old pulse to persuade
if we just lie this way
we’ll feel a little better today

if you don’t know by now it won’t work
i couldn’t tell you how
i got so under your skin
couldn’t think of anything much worse
but oh, it gets worse
Track Name: cold
COLD

bringing up, all the painful hurtful stuff
i keep on coming back, and coming back for more
why should i go out looking for what ‘s only
gonna make me sullen, hurt and insecure

as if i’d honestly feel the benefit
as if you’d meant to be so cruel

see it as my best defence
seeing as you made this harder
see it as you’ll never know me again
used to be the best of friends
couldn’t have been but now that’s over
see it as you’ll never know me again

flicking through, i can’t avoid pictures of you
oh cold days likes that one
and that one, that one too
why should i mind
no he’s a real cool stand up guy
should i be full of rage
or just sorry for you
