Track Name: Picture Me
Picture this you're in a dark tunnel when it starts caving in
And you're stuck inside with nowhere to go and your sanity's wearing thin
there's riots outside and you know it's unsafe
'Least it's better than this horrible horrible place
Your heart's a keeper and your mind is on fire
'least you now know that I'm not a liar
And they say it's a state of mind
And they say I'm a state and you'll probably find
that they're right, they usually are
I'm a loose cannon trapped in a three door car
Picture Me when you're falling asleep and your mind begins to stray
No one's telling you what to think or what rules you're meant to obey
There are people out here wanting you to succeed,
People in here knowing you're a person in need
Your heart's a keeper and your mind is on fire
'least you now know that I'm not a liar
And they say it's a state of mind
And they say I'm a state and you'll probably find
that they're right, they usually are
I'm a loose cannon trapped in a three door car
Maybe now you can see where I've been coming from
Maybe now you'll believe me
Your heart's a keeper and your mind is on fire
At least you know now that I'm not a liar
And they say it's a state of mind over matter
And they say I'm a state and you'll probably find
that they're right, they usually are
I'm a loose cannon trapped in a three door car
Track Name: Unfamiliar
I ask what it's like to be stuck in the middle
You tell me I should know. At least I've gotten this far
Only another six months or so to go.
I'm not sure of what I'm waiting for
I just know I'm not there yet
I'm scared of hurting you along the way
But if I don't there will be nothing left

An empty life, a useless shell, a shadow of what used to care.
A restless limp, a careful movement, the loving way we used to share.
I'm taller now but that's a lie, I wish advice was all you'd left behind
I'm sorry for you every day.

I wanna be everything but I've stopped trying to be anything
I'm not used to this kind of cold
I hate this time of year.
I'm sitting on this damp cold fence
Afraid of jumping off and it making sense
In case I think you're right and leave your side
I think we've made a huge mistake .

An empty life, a useless shell, a shadow of what used to care.
A restless limp, a careful movement, the loving way we used to share.
I'm taller now but that's a lie, I wish advice was all you'd left behind
I'm sorry for you every day.

Falling - wasn't the easiest thing to do.
Freezing - shaking my body next to you.
Changing - I should have known you could follow through.
Falling - wasn't the easiest thing to do
Pleasing - I should have pushed right next to you
Crawling - Making my way back to you.

And I can't look you in the eye because you know my life's a lie.

For 24 months I've walked these same streets twice a day
And I never caught sight of you or heard something you might say.
For the last two weeks I've been thinking of you screaming at me and it's making me weak.

I need to call you up and tell you that I miss you.
Track Name: Heartbreak Song
Only twenty we’ve just begun

I think it’s safe to say there’s brighter days in sight

It gets better, we’re only young

And your advice is to embrace to the darkness of the night

There’s a certain truth in the orange air

The smell of cold smoke is just like home

A certain comfort knowing you’re there

Knowing one day soon we might not be alone

What have I done, I can’t be your friend

I won’t be your crutch, don’t let it end

Why does everyone watch me fall.

What have I done you don’t understand

I can’t take it back, why play pretend

Why does everyone watch me fall.

Just twenty-one with a full tank of gas

I swear we’re going somewhere, just maybe not fast

We gotta keep walking straight up this road

‘Til we find somewhere we can both call home

Not one for conflict, not one for a fight

This is just what they wanted to set us alight

We’ve gotten further than anyone else

Battled on shouting not tonight

What have I done, I can’t be your friend

I won’t be your crutch, don’t let it end

Why does everyone watch me fall.

What have I done you don’t understand

I can’t take it back, why play pretend

Why does everyone watch me fall.

I’ve fallen more than once before and prayed

I landed on my feet

Fallen thousands more and still I feel I need to retreat

You’re on fire and so am I

This is not somewhere I want to die

And I know you’re scared

Because you’re praying to a god that you know isn’t there.

What have I done, I can’t be your friend

I won’t be your crutch, don’t let it end

Why does everyone watch me fall.

What have I done you don’t understand

I can’t take it back, why play pretend

Why does everyone watch me fall.
Track Name: Welcome To Seahaven
Dreaming of ashes I woke up choking
I was screaming and breathless, my forehead was soaking
I've never been told to practice my goodbyes
I was aching in places, different times different stages
I'd deafened myself with a song that was jaded
Fallen from grace, what a shame what a waste
this hour was for you.
The only way to breathe again is to clamber and claw and scream in our skin
The only time we broke the rules was under the light in your room
Manipulation wasn't my intention
Welcome to Seahaven - the leaves are watching us
Intimidation isn't a new invention
Welcome to Seahaven - the leaves are watching us
Where do you go when you don't get in touch?
And I spend days in my own head thinking too much.
I know you're not to blame for our sorry tired shame
I know you've grown bored of playing the same games
I promised you riches, ambitious I failed you
With fiction, fiction, fiction, fiction.
Where do you go when you don't get in touch?
If I could just let this go.
The only way to breathe again is to clamber and claw and scream in our skin
The only time we broke the rules was under the light in your room
Welcome to Seahaven - the leaves are watching us
Intimidation isn't a new invention
Welcome to Seahaven - the leaves are watching us
Welcome to Seahaven
Welcome to Seahaven
Intimidation isn't a new invention
Welcome to Seahaven
Welcome to Seahaven
Track Name: Paper & Glue
I was raised and always taught to follow, but to politely question everything I swallowed
I was born without fear and I was born without bones but I quickly filled those holes
And I don't believe in fate anymore
And I don't believe in art anymore
But we can make love out of paper & glue, string it together and be hollow
We can make love I'll leave it all up to you, string it together and be hollow
Do you believe in something I don't know exists? Do you believe in making plans or taking risks?
I think we're going blind but I don't care.
Do you believe in fighting 'til you cannot lose? Do you believing in plaguing 'til you cannot move?
I think we're going mad but just can't see.
I was lost and thrown into the unknown. Exhausted only by my oath to let go.
Persuaded to validate my ego and dropped my scaffolding and killed my credo.
I don't believe in luck anymore
I don't believe in much anymore.
Do you believe in something I don't know exists? Do you believe in making plans or taking risks?
We can make love out of paper & glue, string it together and be hollow
We can make love I'll leave it all up to you, string it together and be hollow
Track Name: Cougar
We couldn't grow thinking we were any different
Where could we go with nobody on our side?
We weren't immune to all the curses
We were bound to fall apart.
What could we do to change the future
Clutch at straws formed at the start?
I wanna breathe into your lungs
I wanna scream inside your chest
I wanna draw across your brain
And leave you to guess the rest
You said it's just not worth it
It was completely perfect
The lies we told, the wars we've started
It's been this way since we first started
Another brick kicked from our wall
It won't even last the Winter
I'm tired of you thinking of me all alone
I guess it could be simpler
To look me in the eye and say this isn't working
Believe it once and I'll go home
Convince me that we've really grown
I wanna breathe into your lungs
I wanna scream inside your chest
I wanna draw across your brain
And leave you to guess the rest
You said it's just not worth it
it was completely perfect
The lies we told, the wars we've started
It's been this way since we first started
You said it's just not worth it
It was completely perfect
The night you left was black and blue
You were the part of me I could look up
You said it's just not worth it
It was completely perfect
You said it's just not worth it
It was completely perfect.
Track Name: End Scene
Pack it, lock it, box it all up
I'm better at it when I'm bleeding
Drag, skip, stagger, tripping me up
it's harder when these ends are flailing
Request, request I'm drifting further
Entrusting in trust, cheating myself
Request, request it's getting longer
I'm swallowing false pretenses
I am the end unravelling
Spiraling and uninspiring
Lose my grip, then I lose my mind
It flickers, fades then breaks us down
I'm a bitter broken record
But you're the needle hurting me
Truthfully? Truthfully. Sincerely us.
Pace, end scene. This act is weary
Please, end scene. This act is wearing
Sorry I don't feel like dreaming
My pennies dried and rusted in that well.
Dub me heartless, then ignore me
Your hypocrisy is irony
I saw it from the side of your bed
A love note on the back of a card
Again I'm going for the one
Who wants fuck all to do with me
How long can you drag me along?
I've been waiting here for so long
Losing grip to feel excited
Fingers glued and mood fueled dark blue
I'm cutting the string, watching you fall
Maybe I was born with it
Or maybe I'm just Maybelline
I've lost my head and I'm just about 23
Pace, end scene. This act is weary
Please, end scene. This act is wearing
Sorry I don't feel like dreaming
My pennies dried and rusted in that well.
Nothing to lose, nothing to prove, nowhere to hide.
Nothing to choose, nothing assumed, nowhere to hide.
Are we awake? Are we alive? Are we breathing?
Track Name: Clement's Time
I’ll have a cup of tea and sit outside tonight

I’ll have a cigarette, figure nothing has turned out right.

Yes I cared for you, it’s something I dared to do

To be Honest I am nothing but scared for you

I’m not scared of ghosts I’m scared of maybe becoming one

And what scares me the most is I can see you becoming one

What can I do in a room full of you?

When I can’t seem to speak without ceasing to breathe

I know I’ve lied to myself

What can I do now I’m thinking of you?

I know I promised I wouldn’t, I probably shouldn’t

I’ve lied to myself.

Ignite your rumours I’m not angry enough just yet

In spite of you love, I’m drowning in waves of regret

Inventing memories, consuming energy,

Your paperback won’t write itself.

I said I couldn’t love you more if I had tried

You said you’d rather it much more if I had cried

I said I’m not staying up with you all night

You said you’d stay up ‘til the morning just to finish this fight.

What can I do in a room full of you?

When I can’t seem to speak without ceasing to breathe

I know I’ve lied to myself

What can I do now I’m thinking of you?

I know I promised I wouldn’t, I probably shouldn’t

I’ve lied to myself.

One good year doesn’t make a life
One real tear doesn’t make it right
I’m spening way too long on this empty song
Investing way too much, I know I’m in the wrong
One good year doesn’t make a life.
What can I do in a room full of you?

When I can’t seem to speak without ceasing to breathe

I know I’ve lied to myself

What can I do now I’m thinking of you?

I know I promised I wouldn’t, I probably shouldn’t

I’ve lied to myself.
Track Name: Pockets
There's a taste in my mouth and I'm squeezing my pockets
I know I'm not making much sense
I'm clenching my teeth every night in my sleep
I never made a promise I didn't think I could keep
Stay the same, you're only making footprints either way
State your name, you'll remain anonymous either way
Play the game, they're all just in it for themselves
Stake a claim before you're betrayed
There's a gap in my teeth from where I've spat out all these lies
You never cared much anyway
There's a space in the sound from where I've turned off all the music
A soundtrack would only make this worse
A silent lesson from a saint; A little old lady so religious and so quaint
Taught me I won't make a difference, that I won't stand the test of time
Maybe I should listen next time
She said: Stay the same, you're only making footprints either way
Play the game, they're all just in it for themselves
Stake a claim before you're betrayed
Self entitled, breath recycled, a question of ability
hard persistence, co-existence, a question of futility
Track Name: Hollenbad
Engaging your senses
You're scratching your skin
The room wont stop spinning
I'll just let you win
Perfectly timed
Your own indiscretions
I wasn't prepared
For natural progression
You're wishing on mouthfuls
Of breath for a future
Saluting in secret
It was all just a rumour
Your breath filled the air
And the sun lit the ceiling
Your eyes frozen shut
Your eyelids were healing
Past indiscretions
The theme of our year
Countless asked questions
Numbing my fears
Let me hold my breath for you
Enough was enough
We were made from the same stuff
Cut from a cloth that stays safe and stays nameless
Suffered in silence
Excuses are timeless
We've just built an island to escape all the lies
And I can't float when you're drowning.
Track Name: Bike For Three
What are your eyes on? Watch the horizon.
Hoping the sun doesn't set too soon.
What are your eyes on? Watch the horizon.
Hoping the sun doesn't set before I kiss you.
Feeling something I'm not supposed to.
And I ask you
What are your eyes on? Watch the horizon.
Hoping the sun doesn't set too soon.
What are your eyes on? Watch the horizon.
Hoping the sun doesn't set before I kiss you.
I don't care, I can see in the dark.
I don't care, I won't let you fall apart.
I'm sitting across the room
Thinking and breathing and speaking too soon.
Feeling something I'm not supposed to.
And I ask you
Why are we fighting? Don't let the light in.
Another night won't kill us now.
Why are we fighting? Just let the night win.
No one said that this would last.
I don't care, I can see in the dark.
I don't care, I won't let you fall apart.
I'm sitting across the room
Thinking and breathing and speaking too soon.
Feeling something I'm not supposed to.
Another wasted day, I should have spent away
I feel the weather changing, I feel we're ever changing
And I'll be on the floor spitting out my words
i feel the weather changing, I feel we're ever changing
And I'd cut myself in half if it made sense to
Leave the remnants in the past, they had so little to do with you
And we'll leave ourselves behind because ourselves will last forever
Another wasted day.
Another wasted day, I should have spent away
I feel the weather changing, I feel we're ever changing.
