Track Name: Burn It Down
we talk in tv shows and stupid movie quotes
no one knows how far id go just to tell the perfect joke
the battle for convenience will never be stopping
we buy our bread n milk from the glow in our pockets
burn it down, durn it all down
burn it down, burn it all down
whats that churning in your stomach?
social pressure or moral panic?
say good bye to masculinity
for all i try it makes no difference
assimilate ? blind resistance ?
if you quint now you'll see it crumbling
(goodbye masculinity)
Track Name: Terrified Of Everything
we lean into comedy because we're terrified of everything
we just talk and never speak because we're terrified of everything
all this pride is killing me i am terrified of everything
i still dont know why im yelling i am terrified of everything
we try
to open our eyes
but instead
we emptied our minds
and i hope that one day it all stops
do you mean life in general?
or just the bad stuff?
Track Name: Bath Arms
purple trees line the street
what an awful time of year
you are so overjoyed
and i cant find reason to cheer
measure yourself against your own self
the pressure is all yours
let it fester and pick the scab off
realise you do not own anything
we are not without flaw
but at least we're trying
we are not without,
when you read it condensed into a sentence
it doesn't sound to much like anything
so so spoilt
(our) choices are endless
but we really only ever practice complaining
we are not without flaw
but at least we're trying...

i would of thought that
you'd have given up by now
surprise yourself
find happiness somehow.
Track Name: Accommodations
we killed the time
but not the guilt
maybe partying wont help
mirrors on the ceiling
a reflection of your face
obsess over only you
dictate every space,
ive been making accommodations for you
i am over accommodating for you
this bedroom is not
the room it once was
the competition for who is the primary love,
ive been making accommodations for you
i am over accommodating for you

we dont speak the same body language
your movements repulse me
recoil in your place of rest
your face is always reeling,

we killed the time
but not the guilt
maybe partying wont help.
Track Name: 29er
ive never had so little in my whole life
nothing but drive to burn out
but when you work more than you sleep
it turns you to dust and you start to float away
get out get lost get out,
i can count all of my friends on one hand
but i can finally say i love all of them
we will inherit all the bad behaviours
and become shitty hybrids of our shitty parents
get out get lost one day you'll be a boy

percussive throb of a split head
attacks the six chambers in your chest
if it wasn't for the constant pain
you would of swore that he had already left,
get out get lost one day you'll be a boy.
Track Name: Pink & Blue
no friends
no enemies
no need to pretend
the battle of
blue n pink
dream nightly
of its end
confused by demons of place and name
always we are the same,

a fine line
which we all stumble
between passion n hate
separate politics
from behaviour
before you rage/debate
confused by demons of place and name
always we are the same,

no ownership
destroy all labels.
Track Name: Grave Semantics
there was a room
in the room there was a bed
thats where you slept
just down the hall
got a phone call
at about three am
you needed a lounge to sleep on
and i was your friend

heavy hearts the next morning
more anxious than awkward
i didn't know it then
but you'd done a horrible thing

why would you
go and do
something so harmful like that for?
no excuses for what you have done,

and now you can't sleep
there is shit all through the sheets
you can't help but think
did i have a hand in this?

did i have a hand in this?
yes i had a hand in this.
Track Name: Cardcastle
its august again
what have i done with this year?
lost a few more friends
gained alot more fear
at least we have each other
please tell me we at least have that
not without our own hurdles to jump
somehow we cannot go back

here in our little world
in this bubble we create
we tell ourselves
we'll be ok

but we wont
and we are not
we surround ourselves with things we like
it helps us sleep
but we wont
and we are not
head in the sand
only leave the house at night

here in our little world
in this bubble we create
we tell ourselves
we'll be ok
here in our little world
we carefully orchestrate
rose coloured glasses
and blind hope for change,

we are capable of deep thought
and foresight
but prefer systematic self destruction
i dont know why
im drawn to sabotage
or why i paint myself into these corners,

(blind hope for change
blind hope for change
blind hope for change)
