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

BG Noise 02:49
(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
3.
Psychometry 03:43
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
4.
So Much 02:36
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
5.
Calpol 02:48
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
6.
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
7.
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
8.
Irrational 03:09
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
9.
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

LavaIceRink 03:14
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
11.
Trenchh 05:07
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

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
