Track Name: By Now
You walked right by when you were really needed
Did you think that nobody would see you?
You don’t tell lies unless you really believe them
But that still doesn't make them true

And if you don’t know by now
I'm sure you’ll pick it up somehow

You keep your hopes up
cos you like to feel let down
Does it make it easier when no one’s around?
You lock yourself away
and complain that you are lonely
I've been guilty of the same
Track Name: Superpowers
You can read me like a terrible book
A look in my eyes is all it took
And I wonder, is everything crystal clear?
What a shit hole to be on your own
Always staring down at the phone
And I wonder, how I always end up here?

In my darkest hours you show your superpowers
And in your darkest times I’ll show you mine

After all we’re sad and done
We’re not having any fun
We’re many but still we feel so few
It’s a waiting room with a view
The walls are all painted blue
And I’m always walking out with you
Track Name: In Orbit
I always think of the best thing to say
When it’s too late to say it
When I should be firmly on terrain
I am floating around in orbit

What’s it like to be everything you wanna be?
And not be tormented by inadequacies
Never wondering if everything will be alright
While life just passes by

I don’t wish for much but that’s ok
I’m easily distracted
If you saw through my eyes for just one day
I’m not overreacting
Track Name: Here We Are Again
Here we are again
The place where all our problems began
And we’re stuck here till the end
A few bad eggs
Scrambled a lot of bird brains
And now we’re at square one again
Oh and it’s sad
It makes me so sad

But we won’t draw the same lines as we did before
We’ll get what we came here for
And push the boundaries even more
We’ll get what we came here for

We didn’t want this
Most of us didn’t want this
So tell me, how is it fair?
It’s not a question of how it directly affects me
But I care for the wellbeing of everyone I see
Track Name: Shit Sticks
Here we are again
The place where all our problems began
And we’re stuck here till the end
A few bad eggs
Scrambled a lot of bird brains
And now we’re at square one again
Oh and it’s sad
It makes me so sad

But we won’t draw the same lines as we did before
We’ll get what we came here for
And push the boundaries even more
We’ll get what we came here for

We didn’t want this
Most of us didn’t want this
So tell me, how is it fair?
It’s not a question of how it directly affects me
But I care for the wellbeing of everyone I see
Track Name: Fraction of Time
The wind hit my face at just the right time
I was starting to think that I wouldn’t survive
I still feel unstable for no reason at all
It’s been a mystery of late living in my brain

I still live my life
But only a fraction of the time
Don’t say anything I don’t wanna know
And I won’t say anything at all

If I look anything like how I feel
By now I’ve pretty much disappeared
Sometimes the best thing is talking to a brick wall
Nobody answers, nobody can hear your call
Track Name: We Seem OK
Up ahead there’s a cloud looming
And it’s looking pretty ominous
But we’re heading straight for it
Everybody seems to notice
But our course doesn’t change a little bit

But we seem ok
If you don’t look closely

And we’re losing our voices
From screaming blue murder
Through ears to empty spaces
We’re disengaged
And we’re fucking wasting away
But we seem ok
Track Name: Don't Wanna Know
There’s never anywhere to park in this old town
We’ll spend most of the evening driving around
Every time we run over the same pothole
I wish it would just open up and swallow me whole

We just wanna get to where we wanna go
Without enduring the highs and the lows
That’s life, but we don’t wanna know

There’s always some place else that we would rather be
Thinking on the other side the grass is green
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that your mistakes
Will just stop happening one day
Just don’t repeat the ones that you’ve already made
Track Name: Sorry Sight
I’ve never been so unsure of myself
Dragging my feet just so I don’t keep still
I’ll pick up the pieces when I’m ready and well
But until then I’ll put myself through hell
I’ll go right ahead when this is over
I’ve got a sore neck from looking over my shoulder
I’ll pick up the pieces when I’m a little older
But until then I’ll keep getting closer

Don’t close the curtains or dim the lights
The outside world is such a sorry sight

I’ve never been so unsure of myself
I’d say that with certainty but I can’t really tell
I’ll put back the pieces when I’m ready and well
But until then I’m in fucking hell
Track Name: One Way
There’s only one way we can get out of this alive
But I’m feeling tired, my eyes are drowsy, I am spent
It’s how I wake up every dawn of every day
And I can’t recall it being any other way
I know I haven’t been quite myself of late
Or maybe I have been, is this how i will remain?

I need a break and I don’t mean two weeks in the sun
A break from being me just to see how I’d get on
I’m always finding something wrong

I’m overworked and underpaid
My back’s too sore to lift anything today
But I don’t want more money
I just want more of my own time
It’s always the same story and it gets kinda boring
No matter where you hide
It’ll eat you up inside
Til you’ve run out of all your self esteem
