Track Name: A Bomb!
Be my lover just for the night,
Keep on holding on till the light,
Pretend that it never was,
Then start all over again because

Cos my dam's not holding,
Yeah I'm overflowing,
I can't see a way past,
I need to blow some steam off

Be my midnight love affair,
Slide the clothes off, never tear,
Keep quiet initially,
Then we'll wake up this city's sleep

Cos my dam's not holding,
Yeah I'm overflowing,
I can't see a way past,
I need to blow some steam off

I hate to break up on your parade,
(But I'm feeling ill)
You kind of make me not wanna breathe,
(But I'm sure I will)

Cos my dam's not holding,
Yeah I'm overflowing,
I can't see a way past,
I need to blow some steam off

If I were to explode,
Would you be afraid for me?
Would you carry on your day to day life?
Cos I'd go running for safety

I'm a bomb,
I'm a bomb
Just waiting to go off.
Track Name: Demons
Can't stand this city, I hate this town,
Too many demons to bring me down,
This constant noise of things I've said,
These faces buried in my head.

I broke the rules when I looked at you,
Promised myself I wouldn't do,
When you looked back and turned away,
What am I supposed to say?

And I just wanna go home,
I just wanna go home,
Where I am safe and I am clean,
Where I don't need to feel redeemed.

You turn me round and twist me up,
You see a man but I'm just a pup,
And I can't handle my own skin,
All my demons are locked within.

And I just wanna go home,
I just wanna go home,
Where I am safe and I am clean,
Where I don't need to feel redeemed.
Track Name: Keeper
Listen,
I'm not gunna lie to you,
I thought about ending it all last night
When you were away
And I'm sorry,
And I can't even tell you why,
What would you do if you came home to me
like that?

And it's all,
In my head, I'm in my head,
And it's all,
Digging deeper I just need a keeper,
And that's all,
My tragedy is that I'm stuck with me,
And that's all,
I'm in my hands not in your hands
And that's all.

Don't go,
I'm just gunna break again,
I thought about wasting my life with one
Razorblade,
But I wouldn't do that,
I'm just scared of feeling it,
And maybe just maybe I'll work all this out
On my own.

And it's all,
In my head, I'm in my head,
And it's all,
Digging deeper I just need a keeper,
And that's all,
My tragedy is that I'm stuck with me,
And that's all,
I'm in my hands not in your hands
And that's all.

Dear loneliness,
How I've missed you my old friend,
It's been a few years and yet not one of us
Has changed,
Dear loneliness,
You've always been there for me,
But I hate you and all of the joys
You seem to bring.

And it's all,
In my head, I'm in my head,
And it's all,
Digging deeper I just need a keeper,
And that's all,
My tragedy is that I'm stuck with me,
And that's all,
I'm in my hands not in your hands
And that's all.
Track Name: On The Edge
Steal me the ocean,
I'll be the boat,
The waves are approaching,
But I'll stay afloat.

I've seen the thunder,
But I see no storm,
We can hide under,
A shelter of thorns.

Cos we are sailing on the edge,
We have lost our way,
We are sailing on the edge,
But I like it that way.

Take my emotion,
Colour it in,
Force out the motion,
Spread it thin.

Cos we are sailing on the edge,
We have lost our way,
We are sailing on the edge,
But I like it that way.
Track Name: Bury Myself In The Tide
Where are you now?
I've waited an age,
I have grown old,
Stuck in this cage.

All of my friends,
Are falling away,
What can I do
To get them to stay?

Cos I've tried,
And I've given up all of my pride,
And I'll die,
I'll just bury myself in the tide.

What have I done?
I've made it this far,
Colossal failure,
Sinks in my mind.

All of my friends,
I've led you astray,
What can I do
To keep you from going away?

Cos I've tried,
And I've given up all of my pride,
And I'll die,
I'll just bury myself in the tide,
And you won't
Won't convince me I started this fight,
So please don't
I'll just bury myself in the tide.
Track Name: Rolling Down The Track
I'm just rolling down the track,
That's been laid out for me,
Rolling slowly down the track,
That you laid down for me.

I look on as hopeless as,
A fallen soldier knows he has,
I watch on as you attack,
You won't come close, you won't fall back.

Job is done when I get tired,
I don't give up just to get fired,
Loneliness comes crawling back,
Found its way through all my fundamental cracks.
Track Name: Forests
The price of a ticket,
The stories they earn,
I'll never let it go,
When will I learn?
That I'll never make it,
With stories like these,
The lights of the city glow,
Just don't like me.

With an undergrowth of dust,
And the houses around us,
I'll never come back,
I'll never come back,
With a forest of fools,
With the virtual tools,
Might never come back,
I might never come back.

The taste of the open,
There is nothing else,
The sounds of the city slip,
Just for myself,
But I'll never feel it,
Or anything at all,
Incapable of it,
I've hit a brick wall.

With an undergrowth of dust,
And the houses around us,
I'll never come back,
I'll never come back,
With a forest of fools,
With the virtual tools,
Might never come back,
I might never come back,

And I'm starting to see,
This life in front of me,
I'll never come back,
I'll never come back,
To the place that I have called,
Home when it kept me walled,
Might never come back,
I might never come back.

The price of a ticket,
The stories they earn,
I'll never let it go,
I'll never learn.
Track Name: Back Down To Earth
You,
You came to me,
In my time of need,
To help me pull through,
But low,
Low and behold,
Cos I have not sold,
My heart to you.
And I,
Just wanted to find,
Someone to hold,
Somebody kind.

But you wanted to reshape my soul.

State,
The obvious,
I'm out on my luck,
I'm ready to fall,
And now,
I'm sitting at home,
Stuck by the phone,
Waiting for your call.
And how,
When you're so close,
Can you warmth,
Feel so cold?

Cos you wanted to reshape my soul.

Maybe I've come back down to earth,
I've been struck by a reality burst,
You can choose your exit,
But maybe I'm wrong.
Track Name: Sink
It's all over,
Can you breathe?
You've been kicking,
A part of me,
Can you see?
Can you see?

Walk alone,
Amongst the trees,
Walk until,
You meet the sea,
I can speak,
I can speak.

And it's all over,
Now
And it's all over,
Now.

My heart slows,
And I can think,
You damn near brought me,
To the brink,
And I sink,
And I sink.

Watch the waves collect,
Over my head,
Fighting fire with,
Only steam instead,
Instead.

And it's all over,
Now
And it's all over,
Now.

Call back behind me,
Sat you'll find me,
I'll be worn out,
And asleep.
Fall flat,
Come pull me back,
I'm floating,
And I'll be no good to keep.
Track Name: Blue October
It's a rainy October evening,
And I've begged but I'm not receiving,
The attention I need to escape from these blues,
They've been following me and I don't have a clue how to lose them.

Cos I should be fine now,
But still something's missing,
Or now there's too much,
Cos now I feel soulless,
And so out of touch,
With what's going on,
And where I am heading.

And I should just accept it,
That I'm gunna die,
Alone in a house,
Just a dog by my side.

But perhaps it's the rain,
That's made me like this,
That's made all these thoughts,
Fight their way through my fists,
And i'll scribble them down,
With paper and pen,
So I can read them over,
Again and again and again.

Cos it's over,
It's over,
Before we begin.
Track Name: Something To Love
Try hard to reach,
Something to love,
But I cannot teach,
Myself to be lonely,
But I try,
See you by my side,
See you by my side.

These soaking sheets,
Have got me beat,
And I just can't slow down,
I'm trying to sleep,
When I walk these streets,
Hoping to meet,
Someone I can reach.

And I think they know,
I can't let go,
And I think they know,
I can't let go.

Caught in a maze,
Desperate to find,
Some means to escape,
Release from these shackles,
As I try to trade,
My struggle in shade,
For some soil and a spade.
