Track Name: Night Knuckles
Welcome to midnight
Screams when I open my eyes
Premeditated isolation
and it still bites

Welcome to real life
Time doesn’t matter and you’re gonna die
Drip drop it goes through the holes in your skull
In the night time they grow
In the night time they grow

Leave if you’re sure
When it comes to this you know better than you think
And don’t tell me it’s fine
don’t tell me I’m wrong
Because the faker the hope,
the more painful the song

Get it in your thick skull
Of course it won’t be easy
It’s just the way it is deal with it I’m tired of whining
These are just things that I hammer into my skin
in the night when the sky looks like my
knuckles and my eyes
Track Name: BG Noise
(Get a load of this monster
He doesn't know how to communicate
His mind is in a different place
Will everybody please give him a little bit of space)
I haven't got a lot of friends anymore
And my head still says I have none at all

But I don't mind if I'm a little bit alone
As long as I've got things to call my own
And I don't mind if you find someone better than me
Cause I just need you to be as happy as you can be

And now I'm shaking too much

Get a load of this man without a plan
He doesn't wanna go to school but doesn't wanna upset his dad just
Get out of bed, it's not that easy
When your throat goes cold and your arms feel queasy
Been in this state for one too many days
And everyone I love is so many miles away
Snap out of this
Cause you're so much better than this, boy

And now I'm shaking too much
Of course I'm shaking too much
Track Name: Psychometry
I don't care about this life
No I don't care anymore
It's a bad idea to self-medicate
And it isn't good to stay in bed all day
But I still gotta get myself a restraining order
Against me and every car outside

I paid 65 pounds for this kite
And it doesn't even fly
I think I tore it up in my dreams last night
Content is dead to me
Feeling something is nice at least but
I just want you to be okay
I need you to stay

Raincoat Scuba-dive underneath the sky
I know that you cry so easy
Even when you try so hard
Nobody's here
Tear out all your hair
Break all of your bones
Okay, but not today

Are you near me
Can you see me
Can you hear me
Are you happy
Are you up there
Do you know me
Do you feel scared
Are we okay
Track Name: So Much
I've got a lot of ghosts inside me just whizzing round
And no matter what temptations I use I can't coax them out
My worries are all far too selfish I can't let you know
Cause if what's in my head went into yours I'd have to let you go

God knows I'm trying to get a new perspective
Push the boat to face a new direction
If you're happy I can let you be
But please, oh please, be happy because of me

My body hurts, it hurts so much
When you're not here, can't feel your touch

My body hurts,
it hurts so much
it hurts so much
it hurts so much
Track Name: Calpol
Get up
Today is never gonna turn out exactly how you want
Hold yourself, there's no one else
And you know when the sun dies
None of this will matter half as much as you thought
Learn a little self love
Cause you're not half as bad as you thought
Nobody gets exactly what they want
What do you want

You are gonna grow old
Your head might hurt just a little bit more
So take a bit of Calpol
Eventually your arms won't feel so sore
You're staring at your shoes again
It won't be long til these have holes in them too
From dragging your heels when
Your knees are too weak to elevate your thoughts
Track Name: Snake & the prairie dogs
Dirt in your head and you don’t know how to get it out
So black and white to me it’s everything or nothing now
Educate on your state and you can figure out
What all these mad hatter chatterers are on about

Quickly falling down
Nothing matters to us now
One day we'll all be underground
You can't pull yourself out, you can't pull yourself out

In bed and there’s no one in this house anymore
Turn around shut the door
We’re not going out today
The day is lost anyway
Try and question all of these thoughts
Let them come and go when they want
I guess my brain is an appealing place to stay

Quickly falling down
Nothing matters to us now
One day we'll all be underground
You can't pull yourself out, you can't pull yourself out
One day we'll all be underground
You can't pull yourself out, you can't pull yourself out
Track Name: 16/04/16 (Jack's Song)
I remember the view out the back of the car
Left the front door wide open
Maybe it's a sign that we shouldn't be going
I didn't realise it'd be so hard
You and me, sitting on the trampoline
I think one time we fell asleep
Woke up and felt like it'd been weeks
And now it truly has been
(Forgive yourself)
It wasn't meant to be but it's funny how
Life dealt this cheat
To someone who could handle it so well

And while you sleep in the pouring rain
Just know I'll be with you someday
And I'll have a good one 'til then
Just like you told me

I wish we could’ve played that game sometime
I wish we’d talked more online
I’m glad you liked my picture
I stuck it up inside my locker
Becoming disconnected
Really puts into perspective
How important every friend is who makes you wanna live
And this time it’s okay to cry

Black sweatpants and pasta with ketchup
When your sister ate the slug it was the grossest thing ever
Collecting beetles in the garden together
You're welcome anytime in my dreams

Muddy hands and climbing trees
Sink-tall while we brush our teeth
Striped shirts and hide and seek
It's all coming back to me
While you sleep on a sunny day
Just know I'll remember you always
And no matter how much it hurts
It's not goodbye, just see you later

And while you sleep in the pouring rain
Just know I'll be with you someday
And I'll have a good one 'til then
Just like you told me
Track Name: Irrational
I put a box in my closet full of things that I've loved
Sometimes I can't bear to look at it cause I won't deserve
What I find, I tell myself this every single time
Cause I'm not strong enough, not strong enough for this
Yeah

I'll sing until my skin starts to feel something
I'll breathe again and again until the beat starts to mean something

It's not a lot of fun to think about
Everyone you're letting down
A sickness so incredible

You know it's all irrational
You know it's so irrational
Track Name: Nostalgia In My BedRoom
Every night you sacrifice your soul
Just to keep the ones you love most close
Nothing ever comes back from it
Don't you wonder why nobody else can see it
Everybody says breathe, but the deeper I breathe
The more bugs fly down my throat
Probably got a little nest down in my stomach
And they're turning into butterflies

Everybody scares me but you-oo-oo-oooo
Nobody scares me but you
You're pretty scary or maybe I'm just a pansy
That's pretty likely but I really really miss
Yeah I really really miss you

My friend gave me a piece of honeycomb steel
And I kept it in my bedroom for three whole years
But my mum cleaned my room and she threw it away
Little things that remind me of better days
They make me smile for a while then it goes away
Nostalgia in my BedRoom

Everybody scares me but you-oo-oo-oooo
Nobody scares me but you
You're pretty scary or maybe I'm just a pansy
That's pretty likely but I really really miss
Yeah I really really miss you

Yeah I really really miss
Yeah I really really miss you
Track Name: LavaIceRink
I thought I needed some space to myself
But now I'm here alone I realise I need someone else
But it's too late, I feel like it's too late to change my mind
I can't think straight
I froze some lava and I put on my ice skates

Is it too late
Show me it's not too late give me a sign
I'm running out of time
Is it okay
Or is it just the medication running through my veins making things seem alright
Track Name: Trenchh
Miss skinny jeans why won't you talk to me
I miss when everything felt right
My skinny jeans have gotten too small for me
But I feel smaller than I've ever been
I couldn't be good enough, I couldn't do it right
Now I don't wanna even try

What does it mean when somebody says sorry
Is it true regret or just a formality
I've lost far too many days of my life
And I know I won't get sleep tonight
But it's alright, yeah it's alright, yeah it's alright

Might as well just bury me down in the Mariana Trench until I come out
And it's easy you see, Yeah it's nothing to me
And it's cold but you're warm can we hug til you freeze tonight
Can we hug til you freeze tonight

(And we're gone again, we're gone again)

What does it mean when my body feels fuzzy
I think that I'm gone, I think I'm going
I don't know where
My legs are see-through and my hand polystyrene
Gotta let it happen, gotta let it be

Yeah it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Pretty bedsheets, skull of concrete, it's alright

Might as well just bury me down in the Mariana Trench until I come out
And it's easy you see, Yeah it's nothing to me
And it's cold but you're warm can we hug til you freeze tonight
Can we hug til you freeze tonight
It's cold but you're warm can we hug til you freeze tonight
Track Name: Sliipping Lately
Picture this, promises
You’re a stitch, you’ll tell them anything
Hear me out, don’t be difficult
We’ll work this out, and then mess it up again

Oh I’ve been slipping lately, I’ve been slipping lately

Call it quits, dwelling’s criminal
Sorry miss, condition’s critical
Soda fizz, is stuck in his blood stream
Diagnosis, probably attention seeking

I’ve been slipping lately, Oh I’ve been slipping lately
I've been slipping lately, Oh I've been slipping lately

It doesn’t really matter
You know whats real
burning on your fingers
You know how to feel

I’ve been slipping lately, Oh I’ve been slipping lately
I've been slipping lately, Oh I've been slipping lately

Oh I've been slipping lately, Oh I've been slipping lately
