Track Name: Treat Your Demons As Nervous Friends
Wake up, it's gonna be a big day today
Go put your shoes on
Put on some heat protection
Your hair's pointing in countless directions
And you look so tired without your glasses on

I know that you're nervous, so am I
But by the time this day's over you'll be fine

I know your heart beats fast all the time
And I promise I'll try
Even when you loose the feeling in your fingertips
I'll hold you close to remind you you're alive

And even when there's nobody around us when you cry
We are one and I'll be here 'til the day we die

I know that you're nervous, so am I
But by the time this day's over you'll be alright

I know that you're nervous, so am I
But by the time this life's over we'll be alright
Track Name: Thank You
Thank you for everything that you do
I don't think you realise the true extent of how happy you make me
And I promise you, that by the time that this through
I'll never forget how incredible you are

And I'm not going anywhere anytime soon
So please promise me that you won't leave my side for now
I'm so sick of the suspense of knowing things will end
And I'm tired of losing all my friends
I'm losing all my friends

Thank you for being calm with me when
Things are gettin kinda rough, it's like I am dying all the time
And thanks for being there when it's cold
It's like you're my coracle and together we're gonna ride out this storm

And I'm not going anywhere anytime soon
So please promise me that you won't leave my side for now
I'm so sick of the suspense of knowing things will end
And I'm tired of losing all my friends
I'm losing all my friends
I keep losing all my gosh darn friends

I'm never gonna let this one slide
I wish that we could hang out all time
But the distance between our minds is un-metaphorically and ocean
I wonder if one day I'll be the guy that you think of first when you cry
Cause I'm always here by your side, just as you are by mine
Track Name: Lying On The Moon (Cover)
I'm lying on the moon
My dear I'll be there soon
It's a quiet and starry place
Cause we're swallowed up in space
With you a million miles away

There's things I wish I knew
There's nothing I keep from you
It's a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear I'm safe
And we're a million miles away

We're lying on the moon
It's a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I'm okay
And we're a million miles away
Track Name: I Promise I'm Trying
I'm not really sure if my words make sense to you
But I can't really find
Any other way to form these feelings into cubes
And sort them in my mind

The negative thoughts go on the left
And the happy things on the right
And there's a little corner saved just for you

Please let me know if you change your mind
Cause inside I'm falling
And I need you to pull me out of this decline
I realise how hard on you this must seem
But trust me
When I say its far, far worse for me

Please, please be here for me dear
Cause I've never needed a friend more
And I cant stress enough how much it means to me that you're trying
And I don't mind if you can't hold me like you used to
Cause I've never hated myself more
But this is just a bump in the road and I promise I'm trying

Give me a moment to get my cards in line
Cause I'm still trying to figure out
In what kind of order I should set them out
If there was a way to explain everything without a word
I'd have a full house right now without a doubt

I'm trying to tear the wool from your eyes
But a part of me wants to let you be
Cause then you wouldn't see what I've become
I'm trying to shout but no sound comes out
It's like we're in a dream state
But I should've woken up, woken up by now

Please, please be here for me dear
Cause I've never needed a friend more
And I cant stress enough how much it means to me that you're trying
And I don't mind if you can't hold me like you used to
Cause I've never hated myself more
But this is just a bump in the road and I promise I'm trying
Track Name: Where Was The Point In It All
We are the snow as it glistens all around. We are the stars as they make their way to the ground, and when we collide with the earth there'll be no one around, but you'll be surrounded by the friends that you've found
There's nothing left at all.
All the trees have fossilised and the plants and beasts, they have all died. Where was the point in it all?
