Track Name: Candle
Nothing's happened, you can calm down now.
You're not a monster and no one's going to shut you out.
Mum and Dad love you, you can come home now.
Of course your friends love you, what are you talking about.
Have the strength to push away all the pain from yesterday,
Cause there's nothing worth crying about
Your heart is a candle and I won't let you blow it out

So what, you messed up, at least it won't happen again
Every time I screw up I feel I've let down all my friends
Stumbling through a thousand stars and neon cars break through my skull
There's so much life out here in space it's crazy that we're here at all
Track Name: Evergreen
We're in the rain, in outer space
And I can't fathom an explanation for what we're doing in this place
Now your hair clings to your cheek
I brush it aside ever so gently, thank you for being here for me

It's not easy staying clean, wouldn't it be nice to be evergreen
It feels like I'm slipping behind a screen of nighlights and suicidal tendencies
It's not easy feeling cold like burning numb hands under a water stream
Wouldn't it be nice to be evergreen

We're in the snow, under the milky way
And no matter how hard I try to, I can't possibly explain
My shaking hands and my breaking bones
There's nothing like whispers in your mind to keep you aware that you're alone

It's not easy staying clean, wouldn't it be nice to be evergreen
It feels like I'm slipping behind a screen of nighlights and suicidal tendencies
It's not easy feeling cold like burning numb hands under a water stream
Wouldn't it be nice to be evergreen, wouldn't it be nice to be

In moments like this it's hard to breathe steadily
The world is spinning and my hands shake uncontrollably
Life's a hair, one gentle blow and it could be gone
And I've never felt so afraid

We're on the earth, on solid ground
Do you have any idea how lucky you are to be around
You're not alone, please never forget
My arms are your second home
Track Name: It's All Good
I'm not really sure how this pans out in the real world
But in my head, everything's going perfectly
And even though I'm not quite sure how, you've taught me to love the world
And be daring, and now life's exciting
But I am so confused, one day I'll be solidly loving you
And then the next I'm not sure you even care for me at all

It's something I can't see, how on earth could a galaxy
Like you think anything of a tiny star like me

But in the end I don't really care what you think
Cause the bottom line is you make me happier than I've ever been,
Oh I've ever been
And after all why would you do all the nice things that you do
If you didn't really mean them from the bottom of your heart
So it's all good, yeah it's all good

Is there any way I can help you out, cause I can't think of a way
To repay you for all the good you've done for me
I'll write you a song or we can just hang out, I'll hold your hand or tell you the joke that always gets you laughing
And when I see you smile, everything becomes worth while
And I forget about my worries, yeah, they just fade into the blue
But something I can't see, how on earth could a galaxy
Like you think anything of a tiny star like me

But in the end I don't really care what you think
Cause the bottom line is you make me happier than I've ever been,
Oh I've ever been
And after all why would you do all the nice things that you do
If you didn't really mean them from the bottom of your heart
So it's all good, yeah it's all good

I think you're my best friend

But in the end I don't really care what you think
Cause the bottom line is you make me happier than I've ever been,
Oh I've ever been
And after all why would you do all the nice things that you do
If you didn't really mean them from the bottom of your heart
So it's all good, yeah it's all good
Track Name: They're Too Loud
Throw me, bones and all, into a cavern of my own thoughts
I shouldn't last long at all

Another night has passed and I'm still waking up at the crack of dawn and you're the first thing on my mind
Your gentle hand beat up my brain and your face won't look the same
The next time that we're here at the same time tomorrow

So throw me, bones and all
I shouldn't last long at all
Track Name: Winter Coat
You looked a little spaced out yesterday
I offered you a hand but you had nothing to say
Am I a ghost to you, cause I'm thinking
Maybe it'd be best for me to stay away
And as you made your way to the front door
You left your winter coat that your mum bought
You closed the door slow in time for you to speak:
"I think it'd be best for me to just leave."

Then you ran out so fast I didn't have time to grab a mac
The car and all the driver's stuff was soaking wet by the time you passed
I called your name into the rain but all the people look the same
In every man I saw your face and my sight begins to fade
And my hands they start to shake as I'm standing in your place
Your winter coat is still at mine I dont have time to run away
To bring it back to keep you warm you're already lost in your own storm
And it's all my fault
Track Name: Friend, please (Cover)
I feel for you but when did you believe you were alone
You say that spiders crawled inside and made themselves a home
Where light once was
Petrified of who you are and who you have become
You will hide from everyone denying you need someone
To exterminate your bones

Friend, please remove your hands from over your eyes for me
I know you want to leave but friend, please don't take your life from me

Won't you let me know your plans tonight
Cause I just won't let go 'til we both see the light
And I have nothing else I have to say
But I will listen to you all day, yes I will

Friend, please remove your hands from over your eyes for me
I know you want to leave but friend, please don't take your life away from me
Track Name: Rocket Ships
On summer nights the stars fall a little slower and
I don't if I can catch them in time to sew words
delicately to the palm of my hand, tell me
What am I worth ?
Do you see words written in the air
or is it just me forming pictures from nowhere
I have funny little comic books taped to my hands
And a brain within a brain, it's got a mind of it's own, yeah

Rocket ships will take off whether you're in them or not
And it's sad but it's the truth, the world would still turn without you
But when your bones turn to earth and you ask me 'what was I worth?'
I'll simply plant a flower above you, and you can watch it grow
You can watch it grow, you can watch it grow, you can watch it grow

On summer nights my thoughts form a little vaguer and
I don't know how to arrange them or put them into words
Now I'm leaving bashful teardrops in my hands
Please tell me I'm a man
Do you think aliens in outer space
think that they're the only human race
My mind's a house of magic cards about to blow away, yeah
I'm just a shoot and I'm not ready to grow yet

Rocket ships will take off whether you're in them or not
And it's sad but it's the truth, the world would still turn without you
But when your bones turn to earth and you ask me 'what was I worth?'
I'll simply plant a flower above you, and you can watch it grow
You can watch it grow, you can watch it grow, you can watch it grow

Would it be okay for me to stay
If okay is here then I'm far away
And the train's not leaving for a while
I packed by bags but they've emptied themselves somehow
The thought of meaning something just makes my brain
twist, invert and fall down sideways
But my voice is a spark so let me sing
'til the fire's so bright it's deafening

Rocket ships will take off whether you're in them or not
And it's sad but it's the truth, the world would still turn without you
But when your bones turn to earth and you ask me 'what was I worth?'
I'll simply plant a flower above you, and you can watch it grow
You can watch it grow, you can watch it grow, you can watch it grow
Track Name: Dysphoric V.2
Don't let me see what I am
Cause I can't stand it, no I can't
I'm coming back round again
It's been over a year I thought this was the end

But now I don't remember comfort
Because what I am is what I'm not
I don't belong here it's just hopeless
Find me a way out if you love me at all

Don't let me hear what they say
Cause I can't stand it everyday
I'm thinking that I should leave now
And I don't think I'm coming back this time

But now I don't remember comfort
Because what I am is what I'm not
This phantom skin, it's weird to live in
So find me a way out if you love me at all
Track Name: It's Okay
Hey, It's okay if you're not okay right now
You have plenty of time to figure it out
And before you know know it, you won't even remember the last time
Someday you'll be glad you didn't listen to your demons that one night
And I already can't wait to see how you'll grow
There'll be skies as blue as your eyes and grass as soft as your nose
And I'll tell you all of the things I love about you
I'll tell you about all the times that I've smiled because of you
And you'll realise,
It's okay if you're not okay right now.
Track Name: Hands
Pretending to laugh is exhausting but I'd rather be tired than lose my friends again
And I'm nothing special but in the end I'm all that I've got

So friends raise your hands

Does it really matter to you if your haircut's uneven and none of your socks match
And do you care about people who speak just to hurt you, you know you're better than that
After all why would anything good happen if bad was all we got
I left a trail of hope so you won't get lost

So friends raise your hands

Oh ...

The end is coming closer with every breath you take
And you can't outrun the light speed earthquake (Yeah)
And no matter how many times you tell me it's fine
I feel like this was all a mistake
Please humour me cause my minds a castle of songs
and you're not singing along
Well, if you're not the singing kind it's fine
Just don't leave me behind (Oh ...)

So friends raise your hands
Raise your hands
Track Name: Ghost Boys
On my way home from the store
I bought your favourite colour
So we can paint your room together
I'll cover your ceiling with nebulas
I'm not really sure if you'll remember
But in that one moment last summer I felt
Pretty good with being alive and all
It seems memories are all we've got

I've been getting tired of all these ghost boys telling me what to say
There's two for my heart and two for my brain
And the one for my body keeps running away
I've been wasting time on all these ghost boys and all their selfish ways
Believe me I can and will fix what they've done

Do you think of me anymore
As someone you can talk to
When your face turns to grey-blue
I know you, you're not anti-social
I'm constantly aware that we're sinking
And the spirit boys never let me refrain from thinking
That it's only a matter of time before we break
It seems optimism's all we've got at this point

I've been getting tired of all these ghost boys telling me what to say
There's two for my heart and two for my brain
And the one for my body keeps running away
I've been wasting time on all these ghost boys and all their selfish ways
Believe me I can and will fix what they've done

But I'm not an optimist you out of all know this
Sad kids we rhyme like this and all that I know is
Tunes and a rhyme help me more than a therapist
I cannot wait til the day that we reminisce
Times that we changed and the plans that we made
We are growing and learning every single day
And no matter how hard that I try to change
The ghost boys won't go away

I've been getting tired of all these ghost boys telling me what to say
There's two for my heart and two for my brain
And the one for my body keeps running away
I've been wasting time on all these ghost boys and all their selfish ways
Believe me I can and will fix what they've done
