Gather round, old familiar The portly stains of twelve years today It seems the same, my shelves are failing A cowards way to begin your day Even though i’m getting better I’m still told to take it slow. So I take it slow I take it slow Even though i’m getting better I’m still told to take it slow. Tighten the purse strings its healthy living To mind you mind, enrich your soul I say I love you, you have to know This years been hellish, its time to grow I try to journal, impossible I hide the truth, its unstoppable Even though i’m getting better I’m still told to take it slow. Even though i’m getting better I’m still told to take it slow. So I take it slow I take it slow Even though i’m getting better I’m still told to take it slow. The rain is heavier today I think The light gets brighter as you look at it You say that I should take a break for me And you, you tell me to take it slow I take it slow I take it slow I take it slow I take it slow I take it slow I take it slow I take it slow I take it slow.

Silver 03:37
We were alive when we were young We were the salt of the fucking earth No one could tell us right from wrong You were a fountain and I couldn't drink enough. Back when you told me your parents were moving I knew we were living on borrowed time But I swear we can make this work if you say that we’ll try The distance is but a number of hours spent From days, to weeks, to months when I can barely find the rent But i’ll be your armour, and i’ll splint your spine I’ll be your guiding light, if you’ll only be mine (if you’ll only be mine) I sang about the weather, about its dependability And I hoped that one day soon i’d use the tricks that you taught me But I can't, oh I can't, it’s sad, but true I’ll still be ever dependent on you. I just wanted to call and put this to rest I just wish I could see you and get it all off my chest I think I wanted it more, and I think you wanted it less Yeah I just wanted it more, and you just wanted it less I want to be something bigger, someone better Than the sum of all my parts I want to feel like I matter, when it matters I want to know I played my part I think I wanted it more and I think you wanted it less Yeah I just wanted it more, and you just wanted it less. I sang about the weather, about its dependability And I hoped that one day soon i’d use the tricks that you taught me But I can't, oh I can't, it’s sad, but true I’ll still be ever dependent on you. Like the day we met outside your school The rain it came down it was too cold for you We said we'd make an effort to patch up the distance But some weeks that's hard to do. Ever dependent on you.

Oak 03:22
Your eyes are glazed You remember the face but not the name In the picture frame above your doorway There was once an embrace All the words came to play Now you can’t speak the same Who are you today? Are you ok? Now I can’t step foot inside that house It’s not you its the ghost that haunts it now Would you know my name if I called round? Would you shout it out or would you ask around? There was once an embrace All the words came to play Still you can't speak the same Who are you today? Are you ok? You were the perfect pair You’d wake at six in the morning Just ‘cause he liked your hair like that Who are you today? Are you ok? Now I can’t step foot inside that house It’s not you its the ghost that haunts it now Would you know my name if I called round? Would you shout it out or would you ask around? Yeah would you ask around? And would you ask around? Now I can’t step foot inside that house It’s not you its the ghost that haunts it now Would you know my name if I called round? Would you shout it out or would you ask around? And I can't step foot inside that house Its not you, its the ghost of him that haunts me now Would you know my face if I called round? Do you recognise me, do you recognise me anymore? Do you recognise me anymore? Do you recognise me anymore? Do you recognise me anymore? Do you recognise me anymore?

I had a vision of a holiday A sandstone terrace, two adjacent graves A single primrose, a lonely drive Embarking somewhere, a sleepless night. (I know that we could get by, but I can do this better on my own) You’re like pawnshop jewels You turn my fingers baby blue You came and made your mark Then you left me in the dark And I know that I shouldn't care, But I do I do. Age is but a number or so I believe I’m in my 30’s but I think I peaked When I was 19 When I was carefree (All we do is get high and I can do that better on my own) You’re like pawnshop jewels You turn my fingers baby blue You came and made your mark Then you left me in the dark And I know that I shouldn't care, But I do Well if that’s the price I pay It still hurts in the same way And I’ll always feel this way around you Around you. Can someone save me Can someone save me From the blood on my hand From the time in my head Oh, holy wine Give me the strength the strength to run I know that we can get by but I can do this better on my own. You’re like pawnshop jewels You turn my fingers baby blue You came and made your mark Then you left me in the dark And I know that I shouldn't care, But I do Well if that’s the price I pay It still hurts in the same way And I’ll always feel this way around you I’ll always feel this way around you I’ll always feel this way around you I’ll always feel this way around you I’ll always feel this way around you Around you.

Only Nature 03:37
I took a bite of life and nearly choked It wont let me go Just let me chew this on my own Oh here we go “Why do you take drugs?” “You drink too much” “Waste all your time” “No exercise” Stay up all night, draw the curtains blinding light Try change my mind, my broken mind Shiny broach and yellow pin Tiny Speckled medicine Now I can feel anything I don't care “You can't grow a plant without a seed” The wilting trees, Are the only nature that I need is to help me sleep “Why do you take drugs?” “You drink too much” Try change my mind, My broken mind Shiny broach and yellow pin Tiny Speckled medicine Now I can feel anything I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care Shiny broach and yellow pin Tiny Speckled medicine Now I can feel anything I don't care

Ekimae 03:49
You wouldn't sleep in earthy flesh with maggots in your mouth So don't you dig that hole into the ground I will go by flames instead, that decimate my limbs My human vessel ends where it begins Skin cells they glide on the air Lightwaves shapeshift to warm colours to help me exhale As I close my eyes I close my eyes I close my eyes I close my eyes and let myself go Deep blue skies i’m questioning how the world turns round How all these beautiful colours exist in my eyes and how I hear sounds How I let love grow and take control of my mind my eyes and my hands and my feet How I was more of a father to my own father than he really was to me Skin cells they glide on the air Lightwaves shapeshift to warm colours to help me exhale As I close my eyes I close my eyes I close my eyes I close my eyes and let myself go I let myself go Yeah! The birthdays, the holidays I’m glad we did this together I left my heart at Ekimae If I could i’d roll back the time It's just a shame how the time flies From the first day, to the last day As I close my eyes.

Monster 03:00
You call me at midday I’m still waking up Counting creases on my face I’m coming unstuck It doesn't make much sense to move If I can't spend my time with you I've got a hole in my pocket The one where my spare change rattles around with my youth (It rattles around with my youth) It doesn't make much sense to move If I can't live my life with you And I can't, oh it's sad but true I’ll still be ever dependent on you Stood here like a bubble stuck here waiting to burst Like i'm frozen in one spot and my legs start to hurt There’s weeks where i can function, my mind seems to work But if i stop for too long i'll probably blow again. And I, when did I become a monster lurking in the dark? Oh but i’m getting by When did I, When did I become a monster lurking in the dark Oh but i’m getting by Stood here like a bubble stuck here waiting to burst Like i'm frozen in one spot and my legs start to hurt There’s weeks where I can function, my mind seems to work But if i stop for too long i'll probably blow again. And I, when did I become a monster lurking in the dark? Oh but i’m getting by When did I, When did I become a monster lurking in the dark Oh but I'm getting by.

Is this what I'm destined to be? Maybe I am, maybe i’m not You know i'm not listening i’m picking my teeth And I can’t hear your words but they’re dragging on Yeah, they’re dragging on Are you the pains in my chest? Are you this diet of cigarettes? Are you the two hours sleep every night? All my friends think i’m losing my mind. Another three hours sat in my car I can look in your eyes but I don't know where you are But I can feel this collapse in my arms If I took all the weight from my shoulders I still wouldn't get very far Things went swimmingly until we drowned I guess what goes around comes around Since I met you i’ve not been myself But i’m getting tired of being someone else I’m getting tired of being someone else I’m getting tired of being someone else You will speak, but I won't listen The words they blur and change position Real life doesn't always make sense As I fall in and out of past tense Are you the pains in my chest? Are you this diet of cigarettes? Are you the 2 hours sleep every night? All my friends think i’m losing my mind Things went swimmingly until we drowned I guess what goes around comes around Since I met you i’ve not been myself But i’m getting tired of being someone else

Evergreen 02:40
There’s a place beyond the fracture and its evergreen There’s a place beyond that still, it’s almost suicide I had a hat full of dreams, but I gave them all to you Another storm is rolling over me and it's raining bad news You know your parents hope you don’t end up with him He’s been selling drugs since we were only kids I know i’m not the kind of guy you had in mind But I'm the one who picks you back up every time. “Take it back to the middle, this is the best part” She said. “When I hear this song the fog just empties out of my head” Built to spill, if I said that I would do it then you know that I will. From the bedroom, to the altar, to the hospital. I know your parents hope you don’t end up with me I’ve been selling drugs since I was seventeen I know i’m not the kind of guy they have in mind But i’m the one who gets you fucked up every night. I know your parents hope you don’t end up with me I’ve been selling drugs since I was seventeen I know i’m not the kind of guy they have in mind But i’m the one who gets you fucked up every night. You know your parents hope you don’t end up with him He’s been selling drugs since we were only kids I know i’m not the kind of guy you had in mind But I'm the one who picks you back up every time.

Happiness 02:26
I’m alive I guess that's reason to get dressed I felt the summer in my cheeks, I felt the winter in my chest Oh, but lately I've been thinking myself to death I’ve been picturing you in a wedding dress I won't sleep if you won’t No I won't sleep if you won’t Until normal life resumes again Sleep is inconvenient You were like a seed inside my head I felt the bloom, I felt the growth and I felt it end. But what you gave me, oh baby, I won't ever feel again Oh what i’d give, My god, what I'd give for that happiness. You showed me beauty in places it shouldn't grow You showed me ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ I wont sleep if you wont No, I wont sleep if wont Until normal life resumes again Sleep is inconvenient You were like a seed inside my head I felt the bloom, I felt the growth and I felt it end. But what you gave me, oh baby, I won't ever feel again Oh what i’d give, My god, what I’d give for that happiness For that happiness For that happiness For that happiness
12.
Oh I was born Under the waning moon No special lights No fanfare to welcome me to this life Left by myself But you steered me right Time after time It feels like more than friends When I wake you're here again Nightwalker, and I Bring me kindling And I'll set something alight 'Cause I'm sleepwalking tonight I couldn't be sure How could I know? There's no handbook to guide me to my goals Left on my own But you steered me right Time after time. Nightwalker, and I Bring me kindling And I'll set something alight 'Cause I'm sleepwalking tonight 'Cause I'm sleepwalking tonight 'Cause I'm sleepwalking Oh I was born Under the waning moon But you steered me right Time after time Nightwalker, and I Bring me kindling And I'll set something alight 'Cause I'm sleepwalking tonight Tonight Tonight Tonight Tonight

Junior 04:39
Godspeed to you our lucky boy We were barely 25 but we were wise Time ticks, the decades blow right past our eyes I still wish godspeed to you our lucky boy Think of all the songs we left behind The melodies hide between my memories If only you could hear what's in my mind Just think of all the song Think of all the songs We wrote in the basement beneath our kitchen In a house that was crumbling away Did we write all these words just to take them to our graves? To our lonely graves Tell me your pity stories Sell me your sad goodbyes They fed my appetite Yeah, they fed my appetite. God speed to you our lucky boy We were drinking stolen wine and getting high And I read those words in every single line I still wish godspeed to you our lucky boy We wrote in the basement beneath our kitchen In a house that was crumbling away Did we write all these words just to take them to our graves? To our lonely graves Tell me your pity stories Save your sad goodbyes They fed my appetite Yeah, they fed my appetite. Think of all the songs we left behind (x4) I remember life without a shadow I remember pictures in the rain I remember sinking into your soul The night we knew we'd never be the same I'll break the ice then break my back to break the awkward silence You'll take it all then take the high road, you're taking all my patience And I'm sorry about the weather I'm sorry I can't make it right I'm sorry he left you with holes in the walls but we're doing fine I've been waiting all night for you I've been waiting all night for you I've been waiting all night all night for you. I've been waiting all night for you I've been waiting all night for you I've been waiting all night all night for you. Think of all the songs we left behind The melodies hide between my memories If only you could hear what's in my mind Just think of all the song Think of all the songs Just think of all the songs we left behind.
