Love Off 03:48
Your sonar failed you that night derailed up in your room the friend that watched you sleep and brushed the midnight spiders from your cheek she held it all from you i took a backseat view as i held my viper tongue i've wanted this for so long now it's all hit home. Little things that we all know it seems to me you have not heard you're a dinosaur in green i’m a loaded magazine mono words in hollow verse are exactly all your worth. When all your cinematic dreams became deleted scenes i tried to turn things on their head you cried and laid in bed and other stupid stuff but if you'd shake it off then we'd both get off. I've wanted this for so long is it really so damn wrong? Don't go home, stay need me someday don't go, please stay leave me someday but not now.

These are paranoid days i asked you if you thought you needed space and if you're feeling so damn brave why can't you just admit you like the chase? When I cut the lights when I flick that switch i’m not half as nice as you'd like to think when I cut the lights when I flick that switch i’m not compromised as it falls to bits. These are paranoid days why can't you make the bad winds blow away? and you're talking slow, deranged just try to keep a thought in for today. When I cut the lights when I flick that switch I’m not quite your kind with the razored wit when I cut the lights when I flick that switch i’m not compromised.

I’ll die right here by your side leave this hazy light behind if we find our waterfall we’ll be fine i’ll die right here by your side. ‘Cause if we’re worlds apart like people say then words are not enough and I’m filling up. I’ll die right here by your side scenes round here just leave me blind can’t stay here anymore wasting time let’s find a place we both can hide. I crossed a line today i went and gave it all away you seem to take your time you just seem to want to break mine. I’ll die right here by your side leave this crazy life behind just lay here a little while close your eyes feeling safe for all of time.

Funny Bones 04:52
Don't try to make sense of the seasons just leave them a rock-steady hand writes a note but you know you won't read it. You wanna go out but you won't go there's nothing outside so you'll stay home you won't go out ‘cause you might meet somebody that leaves. Dragging your funny bones out from under the sheets you come closer, by the window you see down by the roadside there's nothing our kind can relate to it's all see-thru. You know the cut and the thrust of this lifestyle's denial you get drunk every night in a club until light borrowed feeling can you see it? 8am crowded on subways when we'd rather be taking express trains but don't bow out ‘cause you might meet somebody that beats somebody that breathes somebody not me.

Manhole 69 05:13
Morley listens wise to how we left the seas behind we severed all our ties and we cut transmission lines “and by this new design the blocking force is mine” the clock ticked on at three-fifteen above the door of sixty-nine. Avery just reads his senses lay deceived and we wonder if and when things were really better then “if all days roll to one then tomorrow never comes and I am free again”, said Lang, “all obsessive thoughts are gone”. These times lay defined by a worn thread hanging from the coat of a dear friend we seed alone in a warm shallow hole of infinity for every signal that’s repeated will surely one day lose its meaning moving, locked in an endless check Gorrell concedes.

You only have to sign your name one last time to break away but I’m not fearing all you say i remember then now I’m just not feeling quite myself you said you'd make it better long ago now far away i wish i could have stayed but i crawled out from under my stone. You only have to sign your name one last time to smile again in my own peculiar way i believed you when you said “if you're not feeling quite yourself i'll always make it better” hanging on your every word you always said you'd make it better time to put the past to bed i wish i could with no regrets that i crawled out from under my stone you always knew that i'd be the one to offer you a home down there with the dust and the dirt hoping for better times chasing my white lies. Because i crawled out from under my stone like you always said that i'd be the one to offer you a home down there with the dust and the dirt hoping for better times chasing my white lies these were arguably better times.

Slow June 04:26
I had a mind to tell you but this library’s so damn cold and i’ve been stuck on this book since 1989 and i've watched you fall off the wall and then climb back up like a fool so keep taking those pills June keep staring up at the sky. What would my friends look like with no hair and how can i make you people care? these things are always on my mind. Get up one sunday morning and she said “i don’t think this life’s for me, i know that you adore me, but is it ever quite enough?” You were sick down your dress this could be our finest hour and i tried apologising it’s all i've ever done and i've watched you crawl on the floor life’s not so easy when your slow June i know i keep you down on the ground my dear but you keep staring up at the sky. What would my friends look like with no hair and how can i make you people care? these things are always on my mind your sore i have no doubt of it but one word and i’m running out of here *holds breath for serotonin time* Get up one sunday morning and she said “i don’t think this way’s forward and i know that you adore me i know you’re not quite bored yet, but i am and i've really had enough.” So heads up i'll tell you since my life just seems this cold that i tried to figure out if it’s all i've ever known i can’t say that I’m certain i can’t say i'll change but these things are always on my mind.

Marina 04:15
I had a burn with a 69 and i left him smoking at the traffic lights not slowing down i'll never start slowing down the bridge, the parks where my life fell apart and lead me back to the start. I fell behind from the second line i don't need no pit-stop i’m just killing time not slowing down i'll never start slowing down ‘cause teenage years were all about the gash and me and my marina. My marina is faster than your Cadillac now watch me race right out your traps this time. You hitched a ride at the quarter mile did i not mention this is how I spend my time just driving round since the day that you left town you disagreed with my direction and grabbed the wheel of my marina. Now my marina is wrapped around somebody's house i lost it all you killed my friend marina my marina was towed away for 50 quid so now i take the train instead it's too bad. Your recollection was a lie that my friends laughed when i said that i'd take a boat not a plane and things were never the same.

Daybreaks 04:20
Daybreaks whatever, wherever if someone would take me away they'd keep me smiling heartaches hung over, fall over yeah i've been sinking again drowning way low. Hands show too slow and i’m always left behind. Daybreaks you never believe me when i see it happening again a feeling rising mistakes that's fine, you deny but here's how it always ends two storms colliding. I'm slow and i know that i'll be last in line. So when you're waiting on that somebody to catch your eye you leave me stranded here standing round to wonder why you say i’m like a film and all the captions pass you by a single sulky cloud in your sultry summer sunshine sky. I know just too slow always left behind so please go i wish you well because I’m done wasting time.

Like iron he came and you broke so gently blue fire and flame grow and be deadly it could be easy in summertime it could be easy if the levée binds it could be easy in summertime but it's so easy for me to say i know. Stop forget everything you feel burn me where I stand with a gun in my hand if i laugh it all off in a day stop self-pity, self-harmer forget everything and don't blame your father because maybe, just maybe no one's listening anyway. Stop forget everything you feel hold our nerve 'til the end but we gladly pretend that we're off in some far off place stop car parks and lager forget everything yeah Selwyn's martyr but maybe, just maybe getting smarter anyway. This is a stranger where i stand i’m not possessed by love my friend my principles are small it’s so much harder to recall something Amy said to me as we waited for the bus leaning closer calmly sweetly "boy, you seem to soak it up i hope you make it to summertime".
11.
I’m as ready as i've ever been with these stones in my pockets as heavy as your heart hangs as powerless to stop it i'll slip away thin no space as tomorrow creeps up like a lighthouse a path i can’t follow. I’m as steady as you’ve ever seen in these shoes i can’t walk in fashion’s for laughter my standing is solid more austere than dreams of fatal diseases no hoping, no waiting fired up like a rocket. Save the advice ‘cause i want you to know that i’ll come to life just the moment i leave it the harder that you fall the higher your bounce is let the weight fall in peace let it lie. Lead in flight may arms hit rock and stories roll this night “future” is a nasty word tonight, i’m not afraid to die let the weight fall in peace let it lie. Sue i’m so glad that i never found you and loaded you up with blind virtue and value the harder that you fall the higher your bounce is let it all fall in peace let it lie.
