Track Name: Away With The Best Of The Rest Of The Year
I'm sitting alone in my room
Tryna' think of what to say to you
But I don't knoww

I kicked myself black and blue
On the the words I never said to you
I was to slow

You said you wished upon a star that we'd be together forever
But I guess the fact that you told me is the reason you're not here

You were the comfort of a glowing screen in the darkness of night
I wanted you to stay even when the conversation shite
Well looks who's laughing now cos its definitely not me
But you left me in stitches from where you cut too deep

I thought you were a firework
But now I'm just lost for words
And it showws

You flashed and now you're gone
And I'm meant to move on
Thats how it goooooss

You said you wished upon a star that we'd be together forever
But I guess the fact that you told me is the reason you're not here

I miss the comfort of a glowing screen in the darkest of nights
But I need you to leave cos the conversation shite
Well who's laughing now cos its definitely not me
But you left me in stitches from where you cut too deep

You said you wished upon a star
so I poured my heart out for it to be beaten red raw
One cold January you sung your dumb ass tunes
I'll admit you screwed me but I'm not as screwed up as you
Track Name: Less Than Hello
I learnt regret in the debt of last time
When the thought of your name could only ride down my spine
Into a slow dance
Fallout of that rogue glance
Please tell me we're in the wrong place

Could we collapse in the street
As we dissect you and me
Just to perhaps relaps
On that least most important thing

You turned away in "I need to go"
We didn't get to say more than that less than hello
I hope you know that I care
If I should go then that's fair
Please tell me we're in the wrong place
Please tell me we're in the wrong place

Could we collapse in the street
As we dissect you and me
Just to perhaps relaps
On that least most important thing

Well people like us can't have bad weekends
'Cause we don't know if they'll stop
And people like us are scared o the future
'Cause we don't know if we'll last that long
And people like us we like sad movies
'Cause we see ourselves in them
And people like use people like us
Can't have bad weekends

Could we collapse in the street
As we dissect you and me
Just to perhaps relaps
On that least most important thing

Could we collapse in the street
As we dissect you and me
Just to perhaps relaps
On that least most important thing

Could we collapse in the street
As we dissect you and me
Just to perhaps relaps
On that least most important thing
Track Name: Vampires
You say you see the werewolf in my eyes
And it's a full moon tonight
Well I haven't changed in some time
We've got a brand new perspective
You say you see the werewolf in my eyes
And it's a full moon tonight
Well I haven't changed in some time
We've got a brand new perspective
You say you see the werewolf in my eyes
And it's a full moon tonight
Well I haven't changed in some time
We've got a brand new perspective

Breathe in but don't let the air get out
Of your fragile lungs, everything is different
The air is colder now, it's filling with water
And we're not prepared for this any longer

If I gave you a baseball bat
Would you swing it at my mouth
Would you hit me in the chest so hard
Rusty colours come out
I'm bringing sharpened words to a fist fight
I don't need someone telling me I'm alright
Imma be chasing ambulances all night
When I bring sharpened words to a fist fight

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

And all of these plans work better in my head
And she wants me to leave or just drop dead
But I don't want to leave her high and dry so instead
I'll drop dead, I'll drop dead

If I gave you a baseball bat
Would you swing it at my mouth
Would you hit me in the chest so hard
Rusty colours come out
I'm bringing sharpened words to a fist fight
I don't need someone telling me I'm alright
Imma be chasing ambulances all night
When I bring sharpened words to a fist fight

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

You say you see the werewolf in my eyes
And it's a full moon tonight
Well I haven't changed in some time
We've got a brand new perspective
You say you see the werewolf in my eyes
And it's a full moon tonight
Well I haven't changed in some time
We've got a brand new perspective
You say you see the werewolf in my eyes
And it's a full moon tonight
Well I haven't changed in some time
We've got a brand new perspective
You say you see the werewolf in my eyes
And it's a full moon tonight
Well I haven't changed in some time
We've got a brand new perspective
STOP
SHIT
Track Name: Jumbo Jet
I haven't slept in some time
I haven't dreamt in a while
Well these aches fill my spine
I don't know what's left but I'll try all these
Ways to get to you
Whilst I wait out my time
My disregard for my breaking
Is what makes me shine

I want to write about you
But the ink won't come out
My paper broke my pencils
So if I can't I'll just shout
Empty words at the sky you might make sense of
If anyone asks why I'll scream nonsense about love

You're a firework
I'm just a burnt out matchstick
I wanna make you fly
If only I could be relit
But if I was relit
I'd burn this place to the ground
'Cause your the one who keeps me up at night
'Cause I don't wanna put the phone down

I want to write about you
But the ink won't come out
My paper broke my pencils
So if I can't I'll just shout
Empty words at the sky you might make sense of
If anyone asks why I'll scream nonsense about love

I want to write about you
But the ink won't come out
My paper broke my pencils
So if I can't I'll just shout
Empty words at the sky you might make sense of
If anyone asks why I'll scream nonsense about love

So I'll sit here wondering
(Sometimes I can't find the words)
If it'd be different if I asked why
(I don't know what to write about)
What does it matter anyway
(The words get caught in my neck)
I'm just wasting my time
(These words are chocking me out)

So I'll sit here wondering
(Sometimes I can't find the words)
If it'd be different if I asked why
(I don't know what to write about)
What does it matter anyway
(The words get caught in my neck)
I'm just wasting my time
(These words are chocking me out)
Track Name: Track 4+1
I wrote a book of all the things in my head
I burnt it whole so no one would ever think those things again
I wore my old school uniform to see how much I'd grown
I needed to get out of my perspective the only one that I've ever known

so I'll try singing about the colours
I never knew I'd love
I can't bring any flowers
but I can bring the mud

I grow out my hair to count out each day
and I hoped you'd be aware of the things I didn't think to say
like your eyes could light up a whole room
and I'm kind of getting tired of being blinded by the thought of you

so I'll try singing about the colours
I never knew I'd love
I can't bring any flowers
but I can bring the mud
cause I've been burying myself alive
trying to call it quits
I sure as hell have burnt the boat down
but I won't jump ship

my heart leapt when I came home to the silence
cause I haven't spent enough time in the quite
and yes I like spending time with people who aren't me
but I'm kind of getting tired
only being happy
Track Name: Good Hustle, Kids
There's a girl taking pictures
Of the unflattering kind
She'll never look at them again
But she doesn't mind
There's a boy, like no one's watching
Dancing around
He looks up slowly realises
And dials it down

I'm not the hero not the villain
Not the comic relief (comic relief)
I'll talk to you till I mess up
And when I mess then I'll leave (then I'll leave)

Though I may not be sweaty palms and shaky
I'm definitely anxious of what you thought of me
Though I may not be particularly hasty
I'm sure as hell young and angsty

So what do you think of this song
Nice weather we're having
As long as you like downpours
So what do you think of this song
But don't get to caught up
In the small talk

The words in my mouth
Turn my tongue into knots
And the thoughts in my head
Are all drawing lots of what
Can come out
Or try a hella lot
Although my chest is tight
My vibes sure not

I'm not the hero not the villain
Not the comic relief (comic relief)
I'll talk to you till I mess up
And when I mess up then I'll leave (then I'll leave)

Though I may not be sweaty palms and shaky
I'm definitely anxious of what you thought of me
Though I may not be particularly hasty
I'm sure as hell young and angsty

So what do you think of this song
Nice weather we're having
As long as you like downpours
So what do you think of this song
But don't get to caught up
In the small talk
So what do you think of this song
Nice weather we're having
As long as you like downpours
So what do you think of this song
But don't get to caught up
In the small talk

There's a girl taking pictures
Of the unflattering kind
She'll never look at them again
But she doesn't mind
There's a boy like no one's watching
Dancing around
Then he looks up slowly realises
And dials it down

So what do you think of this song
Nice weather we're having
As long as you like downpours
So what do you think of this song
But don't get to caught up
In the small talk
So what do you think of this song
Nice weather we're having
As long as you like downpours
So what do you think of this song
But don't get to caught up
In the small talk
So what do you think of this song
Nice weather we're having
As long as you like downpours
So what do you think of this song
But don't get to caught up
In the small talk
Track Name: Gravity
I've ended with the feeling
This didn't start out right
I've been looking for the perfect end
To this imperfect night
Watch my voice dismantle
As she looks my way
My voice and lips crackle
As I think of what to say

My lungs are falling out my chest
What can I say gravity gets the best
Of all of us
When we all place bets
On whether our breathing can keep up

If I went extinct I think
I'd be remembered like the dodo
Not all that exciting
And with a lot of "Oh No"s
(Oh No)

My lungs are falling out my chest
What can I say gravity gets the best
Of all of us
When we all place bets
On whether our breathing can keep up

Even if I had the heart
My stomach would disagree
At least you noticed the knot in my neck
With a 1...2...123

My lungs are falling out my chest
What can I say gravity gets the best
Of all of us
When we all place bets
On whether our breathing can keep up
(One more time)
My lungs are falling out my chest
What can I say gravity gets the best
Of all of us
When we all place bets
On whether our breathing can keep up
Track Name: Koalas
I
Can't handle open lines
They stick to my tongue
Or I simply can find them
And when they finally realise
The persons moved away
And self sarcasm fills my mind
And I
don't really get butterflies
Just my chest fills with bricks
And my body feels inclined
To break down
I guess that's where we start this time

Let's
Take a trip between my ears
Under my bed
Uncover my fears
I'm trying my best to keep my chin up
Though I'm kneeling at the chopping block
And I
Ignore the future to avoid the shakes
I stay up all night
Just for the sake
Of staying awake
I bruise myself to the music I wish I could make

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
