Track Name: Drown In
In hope that I'd make
It into her life
I said hello, and she said
"I like the way you sing,
I like the words you bring
into my mind, with all the
Stories and the pictures
That you talk about and
Serenade with sound,
Oh I'm afraid I'll drown
In your love"
Track Name: Bullet Points
Don’t you remember when we had the world reading off our page?
Ink impressions on the mind now adapted to the stage
Breaking hearts, saving lives, so unashamed
We never learnt to curb desire; fall in love again

But wait now, nothing can pull us apart
Or slow us down; We knew this was wrong from the start

So break down the bullet points and shoot them all around

My love, this time it’s over

Grease on my fingers like your lips on my neck
We were paid to be together with every single cheque
You sink beneath my touch when a thought becomes a word
Every alphabet we write could be a gift or a curse

So burn down the sheets where we wrote down our dreams
And move on What the fuck will I do with a screen?

What will I do if we break down the bullet points and shoot them all around

If playing by the rules doesn’t get you anywhere
Track Name: Institute of Madness
There are two sides to my story, two faces to my name
There's no sentimental glory in the past, oh it's just a picture frame
You know I'm a fast learner, I say I'm learning fast
We're in the institute of madness; let's see how long it lasts

Do you know, is madness a disease?
Am I losing my mind, leaving behind
Everything I know and all my sanity, waiting to find
Some kind of meaning in the chaos
Am I waking up?

Kept the flowers and the letters, I drowned my sorrows in a drink
When the world steals away your song, will I still hear you sing?
Oh you know you're a fast learner, I see you're learning fast
We're in the institute of madness, let's see how long it lasts
Track Name: Crime
So you’re waiting for everything to fall apart
You don’t know where to start
Self-destruction is an art form

Form your little illusions in your head,
And remember what you said
When you’re running from the storm

Storming in and storming out again
Kissing the silhouette of the hand that feeds you
You better learn that it’s easy to steal from a child,
If you’re looking to put up a fight
I won’t let you get away with crime

Cry me a river of despair, when you’re pulling out your hair
Thinking about where I could be

‘Cause you’ve been told that life is hard,
From the very start
So wait till you get a load of me

Storming in storming out again
Kissing the silhouette of the hand that feeds you
You better learn that it’s easy to steal from a child
If you’re looking to put up a fight
I won’t let you get away with
Track Name: Use Your Words
Scrabble eyes, I sympathise with your plight
You can’t see what needs to be seen, what’s plain in sight
You compromise I don’t care your bird’s eye view
What you say What you do anymore is nothing but
synchronised
Falling apart; you think you’re smart when you lay your
letters down

In paragraphs, you write it down, you tell me your history
And all your fantasies and I must I hate the subtleties of your
storyline, cause you’re just wasting time,
You keep revealing it piece by piece
Say what you mean, put me out of my misery,
Why won’t you just learn to use your words?

Let’s get drunk and write down the truth
You know, I’m quite the liar when I’m sober
Everyone else is on the move,
Nothing will ever change, we’ll always be the same
The pursuit is never ending
Oh, I won’t be going with the seasons
Tell me when you’re done pretending,
Will you wake me up?

Tell me when you’ve learnt to use your words
Track Name: Headrush
Roll around the carpet, trying to get a head rush, I know that you like it,
So come out and play
Your mom and dad aren’t watching, so catch me if you can
Oh I know that you need it, so come out and be yourself

The garden isn’t empty, but you know there’ll be plenty of multi-coloured Fish in the sea
So you don’t care for your roses; all you need to know is,
When the crop has dried up, you can take out your boat into the breeze

This isn’t what you came here for
A myriad of closing doors
But everyday you want it more
Everyday you want me so bad
I could be your saving grace
Or throw your way some friendly fire
Walk you right into the flame
Show you what’s become of your desire

Leave out all the endings,
Lets burn them and move on;
The party doesn’t stop till I turn out the lights
The music drowns the voices,
The voices in my head
But I don’t want to hear them, no I don’t want to hear them
I want to touch paradise, with no consequences
Roll around the carpet, trying to get a head rush
I know that you like it, so come out and play.
Track Name: Highs & Lows
Lately I've been hiding from my pillowcase,
Sleep just lets me misbehave in my dreams
Cutting short the bullshit and the hunger for attention isn't easy no

Please don't leave me hanging on If you're never gonna
Take me way up higher If you're never gonna
Knock me from where I'm standing If you're never gonna
Set my mind on fire

Play that note, until you start to decompose
And reconstruct the highs and lows of your tune
Because when answers aren't related to the questions asked,
You've got to look behind a different mask for your clues

Am I being honest, or is this just out of fear
When you don’t even know for yourself, you might as well
disappear

I'm changing my colours; don’t want to say my last goodbye
To whatever's tying me behind, to whatever's keeping me from losing my mind
Track Name: Hold Your Horses Closer
I’ve been living in a hornet’s nest; I’ve been living like a proud king
I’ve been living in a broken mind; I’ve been living like a spoilt child
Buying ribbons just to make a bow, for someone special that I don’t even know

Hold your horses closer

Feigning innocence and peace of mind, I lose track of what I leave behind
I've formed a love affair with new beginnings, the underdog in me is used to winning
I write fairytales that don’t make sense, because I’m too afraid to make amends

Hold your horses closer

The underdog in me is used to winning
Track Name: Lead Feet
I don’t see you anymore
I don’t hear you anymore
The dust is clearing
I don’t see you anymore

My love, this time its over
Track Name: Paper Shoes
Maybe red is the colour of repair
And when we bleed, we’re just learning how to fix ourselves
Don’t they say you don’t fix it, if it ain’t broke?
I’ll punch a wall to find out where it hurts the most

A feeling of restraint I can’t define, it’s like a cease-and-desist
The way you cage me up inside
A part of me I’ve never seen before, is pulling at the doors
That I’ve been meaning to explore

Oh take me home and spread me out
Don’t you know that I have the perfect alibi?
When it rains I’ll be breaking off my chains
I don’t feel guilty, and that has to be a sign

A feeling of restraint I can’t define, it’s like a cease-and-desist
The way you cage me up inside
A part of me I’ve never seen before, is pulling at the doors
That I’ve been meaning to explore
A part of me I’ve never seen before is making its way up to
the back of my mind
Track Name: Manic
The only way to lose your path
Is if you want it too bad
So take it easy don’t hold your fire
Someday you’ll have what you never had

It’s a one-way street there’s no return
You can’t regrow the leaves you burn
Don’t hold your fire, hold your tongue
Your words can hurt more than your gun

Because we live in convenient times
We’ve learnt to live inconvenient lives
Because we live inconvenient lives
We’ve learnt to have inconvenient minds
Track Name: Until We Fall
A glass of wine down in a living room, we’re playing games that
we were meant to lose,
And now you’re asking me questions

We’re sitting close enough to start a fire, my heart is beating like a drum,
Can you turn the kick down?
I’m trying to listen

We’re going out to see the eight o’clock, let’s make a quick stop
at the liquor shop
And then we drink till we fall

The pillow’s not where it’s supposed to be, the sun will tell us when we’re done;
I force my self to sleep when you go home in the morning

We’re breaking the shoes in, at first it will hurt but in time the
cracks and scars will heal, just wait one more step
The song doesn’t want to be sung just yet,

So tell me the story of how he broke your heart, I’ll hold you up
and put you in a taxi, so feel free to kiss me before you get in

Now we’re going back and forth, for what it’s worth, I really
Don’t want to be just a spark in your flame

So play your next move, I know you
Don’t want to be just a pawn in my game

You know we’ll be burning those bridges and all, ‘till we’ve
fallen down, fallen out;

We’ll keep slipping and sliding, until we fall in
