Track Name: Coffee & Cigarettes
Coffee & Cigarettes

You are coffee and cigarettes,
You are everything that’s left
The sun may still be shining,
but dear this still needs refining.

Often my scars lie in my songs,
As well as on my skin,
Look between the lies,
Read between the lines.

Standing in the rain,
To escape the fire,
One extreme to the other,
There’s a difference between
Having fears and living in fear

One day I woke up,
I realised how much time had passed,
I’ve gone so off track,
And I don’t know how to get back

Standing in the rain,
To escape the fire,
One extreme to the other,
There’s a difference between
Having fears and living in fear

Standing in the rain,
To escape the fire,
One extreme to the other,
There’s a difference between
Having fears and living in fear
Track Name: Untitled
Untitled

the rain streams down my hollow frame,
and i cant ignore the constant pain
it’s october and you’re still not sober
so I’ll shut my eyes, wake me when it’s over

the days come, and the days go
the pain stays, and still shows,
memories are so much harder to control
the years come, and the years go,
and the hole in my heart it still grows
just like you I fade,
the inevitable decay

it’s been a miserable year, and just like every other,
I see in your eyes, that you still miss your brother
it’s october again and you’re still not sober
so I’ll shut my eyes, wake me when it’s over

the days come, and the days go
the pain stays, and still shows,
memories are so much harder to control
the years come, and the years go,
and the hole in my heart it still grows
just like you I fade,
the inevitable decay

Unless you're going to fix them leave damaged things alone
like secrets kept safe locked inside your weary bones

just like you I fade,
the inevitable decay

it’s october again and you’re still not sober
will it ever be over?
Track Name: Not So Natural Disaster
Not So Natural Disaster

I’m suffering from 3rd degree burns to the chest,
where your head used to lay,
and i can hope and i can wish and i can pray
but nothing will ever make these scars go away.

I learned every inch of the woods
for no reason other than to learn all of you
falling in love just makes you realise
why storms are named after people.

Lie to me again my dear,
i dare you
words are cheap
lies are expensive
one move out of line and everything will fall apart
so please step carefully

I’m that book that no one reads,
I’m that change you fall short of,
i’m falling apart at the seams,
what’s not to love and need?

Young and unaware,i’d do anything to go back,
don’t grow up, it’s an awful trap
in which memories and what ifs plaster the four walls you’re contained by
and you’re forced to remember what life was like, (single strums
and just how far you haven’t come from that

Lie to me again my dear,
i dare you
words are cheap
one move out of line
and everything will fall apart
so please step carefully

I really believe you’ll change this time’ I exhale chances like i do breaths, naivety at
Track Name: Metaphorical Heart Surgery
Metaphorical Heart Surgery

They say that water is the only thing that can really drown you, 
But You don't have to be submerged to feel like you are. 

I've heard them say that love is a beautiful thing,
but the idea of giving someone your heart sounds painful and quite the opposite, then again you can feel like you're in love without undergoing heart surgery. 

My insides feel like they're on fire, the way your throat feels when drinking straight vodka.
The same taste of poison on my lips, slowly filling up my lungs, 
Intoxicating me, just the way you do.

I love you with every fibre of my being,
every atom in my body and cell in my mind crave you, 
You took my hand, and I swear my soul left my body and through your fingertips, it entered yours

My insides feel like they're on fire, the way your throat feels when drinking straight vodka.
The same taste of poison on my lips, slowly filling up my lungs.

They say that water is the only thing that can really drown you
Track Name: I Spill Ink Like I Do Blood
I Spill Ink Like I Do Blood

I've got a guitar in my hands and blood on the paper; this is how I write a song 
It's like trying to shout underwater 
You're heartless 
even though you had my heart as well as your own.

If you're trying to stand your ground, why are you on your knees? 
I'll swallow each and every regret
 the day you stop choking on your worthless apologies 

In the end, we all drown in irrelevance,
we all cross over the barbed wire fence 
Some things I'll never know, 
Like why Is there not a best time to go?

If you're trying to stand your ground, why are you on your knees? 
I'll swallow each and every regret
 the day you stop choking on your worthless apologies 

Do you ever look at people's hands, wondering how many hearts they've torn apart?
Or stare at people's lips, wondering how many apologies got stuck in the throat, never to reach the mouth? 

If you're trying to stand your ground, why are you on your knees? 
I'll swallow each and every regret
the day you stop choking on your worthless apologies.
