1. I Heart Roberts'

We dance to this dead beat with eyes locked on the prize, this is our fatal disease; named you and me It’s killing us all won’t you set it free? I’ll hang you on the wall and call you misery. So here’s to you and here’s to us, to everything that ever fell apart; nights wasted getting wasted, days we lost to our mistakes… So we’ll never be lost ‘til we’re all alone and we’ll never be wrong ‘til we’re on our own so wake up and we’ll drink for two again. And we’ll never be alright ‘til we read our wrongs and we’ll never be done with these same old songs, so wake up we’ll wait for you again (again) Like frozen appendages in boiling water, we’re going to extremes and not getting warmer. So hold your breath, and I’ll do the same, are we just holding back those words we couldn’t say? So hold your breath I’ll do the same, are we just holding back those words we… I’ll take the blame for your heart attack, and we’ll sever these ties with a fucking pact Through blood we share the world it’s anybodys guess where we’ll end up, our lives are just a fucking mess; and we’re sinking So we’ll never be lost ‘til we’re all alone and we’ll never be wrong ‘til we’re on our own so wake up and we’ll drink for two again And we’ll never be alright ‘til we read our wrongs and we’ll never be done with these same old songs, so wake up we’ll wait for you again (again) He lays himself to rest even though he’s making perfect sense his story goes untold; I read his words to see the end unfold So we’ll never be lost ‘til we’re all alone and we’ll never be wrong ‘til we’re on our own so wake up and we’ll drink for two again And we’ll never be alright ‘til we read our wrongs and we’ll never be done with these same old songs, so wake up we’ll wait for you again

2. B.D.K.I.A.F.

Why don't you hang the steps upside down, we'll walk backwards and feel the blood drain to our heads while you're creeping away why don't we pull the punches back? And perhaps rebuild those severed ties; when I felt you destroyed everything I knew I felt myself ever so slowly becoming you. Where has my heart gone and where has my faith gone? And why am I still here, hating every breath you take, every step you take and every move you make? And just wishing that you'd take your fucking last breath toward expiration; I can't make myself out in the fog, you are the swamp, you are the sand beneath my feet pulling me down. I have no face for your name, your roots never went any further down; I felt them writhe in the cellars of my mind, rotted through right where they they fell, yet here I am. The wasted pulp of what you are. But at least if I fall I can say we failed together, sure to be the only thing we ever shared 'cause you were never there; and I'm yet to feel like I'm even here. If I sink into the swamp that is misery, at least I know you'll drown with me as well.

3. Snitches Get Stitches

I can say firmly, none of them knew the colour of the sky…imagine if we were lost at sea; not a single lip would move, to reveal the stars to me. I am so lost amongst a sea of desperation that these milky clouds fail to shine their light on the path I know I’m meant to take. Loose lips sink ships and where were you when the sun went down and our bows filled with lies? Loose lips sink ships and where were you when the stern broke in two? I was left with nothing to hold onto. No one knew the colour of the sky, no one knew where, or how, or why; cement my thoughts to my ankles and cast me overboard; the liar; the wretch, the failed. Cement my failures throw me overboard; I’ll stare skyward [and] try to remember that, I don’t blame them. Loose lips sink ships and where were you when the sun went down and our bows filled with lies? Loose lips sink ships and where were you when the stern broke in two? I was left with nothing to hold onto. They could never see the true colour of the sky…wistful and lonely, caught on my own; my sky is the only, my sky, oh so lonely.

4. Do You Party?

Party! All night! Party! Why the fuck should be change how we behave, because you thought it would work better that way? And who the fuck told you that you should speak up about how it is we act, about who the fuck we are when we don’t cast our eyes your own way? And who the fuck are you anyway? We’re no one and we still feel right at home, we’re no one and we’re still just passing time; to kill the time, to kill the boredom. Who the fuck can say what we should do? We drink ‘til we drop and we’ll drink ‘til we die! We’re not here for a long time We’re not here to help your night, we’re not here to set shit right; we’re just here for a good time, and friends are our own friends and our own, are our only; and tonight is the last night And fuck you for thinking you could ever set us right Who are you anyway to think you could change us? Tonight is our own night, tonight is our only, we’re lonely, we’re wasted And who the fuck are you anyway? We’re no one and we still feel right at home, we’re no one and we’re still just passing time; to kill the time, to kill the boredom. Who the fuck can say what we should do? We drink ‘til we drop and we’ll drink ‘til we die! We’re not here for a long time

5. Poison Pen Letters

Dying alone would be a privilege if all my friends were like you Dying would be a privilege Rusted rail spikes and shards of glass give me rest; poison the earth in anticipation So tear the pieces from the bone like you’ve torn us apart We’ve built bridges just for burning So light the fires in my eyes so I can watch my own demise We’ve built bridges just for burning Light the fires in my eyes watch my own demise; so I can rip my eyes from their sockets, so I can rip my eyes, so I can rip my eyes so no flowers will grow So tear the pieces from the bone like you’ve torn us apart We’ve built bridges just for burning So light the fires in my eyes so I can watch my own demise We’ve built bridges just for burning And so you carve your, your name into my, into my heart with rusted rail spikes So light the fires in my eyes so I can let them watch my own demise So I can leave this all behind and be left with my solitude intact So tear the pieces from the bone like you’ve torn us apart We’ve built bridges just for burning So light the fires in my eyes so I can watch my own demise We’ve built bridges just for burning

6. Fruity Lexia

It’s not for lack of percipience that I turned my back; It’s just that I’ve become so absent from my own train of thought I’m only just treading water; I’m only just treading water It’s not for lack of faith in what was shared that I had to leave It’s just that I’ve lost track of all the things you said And I’m only just treading water, just holding my head above the surface I’m not saying there’s any one thing that’s left me floating in the breeze Or that the earth has pulled me in I’m just not where I should be, I’m absent from my own train of thought And if the venom spills like turgid wine From the mouth to which I belong, forgive me I’m only just treading water; I’m only just above the surface of what I’ve become With sleep confined to rotten dreams and sweat drenching through my comfort I’m just not able to take it all in I’m only just treading water, but it’s starting to seep in A breath to wake me, like the shock of falling as you drift It’s all that keeps me here; I’m only just treading water But it’s starting to seep in

7. So You Melted

-

8. Jesse Intense

I had to let go of those cold nights long ago, and now it’s time for you to follow suit. Take your night sky tears and burning eyes, stinging from pursuit; take your regret and sallow timber and throw it to the ocean, where misery can seek it out; you know, misery loves a lonely stranger. And you’ve been waiting with open arms for so long. Take your breath and roll it out it’s high time for your chest to resonate something more tangible. The angles are cutting in, they’re destroying the cohesion - cutting ties and killing friends. So long; so long that now it seems to be a farce. But it’s painted on your face like the spread of an open book; time to throw it to the fire. Settle down beneath the ocean stare upwards raise your arms and say goodnight, tomorrow the sun dawns on settled scores and homeward bound you’ll find your solace, solidarity and peace.

9. The Blair Snitch Project

The walls white, skies white, nights white, lights white, and fuck you for being so fucking white tonight My eyes roll back white, white everywhere, lips white, words white, lies white cold as the white ice, and fuck you for being so fucking white tonight We were always hot as the white light, and cold as the thin white ice; but tonight, tonight I’ve passed the point of no return I won’t be turning ‘round again, I was so blinded by your eyes, so blinded by those hot white lights, and dust is now what you’ve become No longer such a fucking bright white light; and I can see further than I ever saw, and now your white eyes, you white lights and rolled back white fucking eyes, they won’t be falling on me again tonight

10. Love Is A Battlefield

(Pat Benatar cover) We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searchin our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield Youre beggin me to go, youre makin me stay Why do you hurt me so bad? It would help me to know Do I stand in your way, or am I the best thing youve had? Believe me, believe me, I cant tell you why But Im trapped by your love, and Im chained to your side We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searchin our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield Were losing control Will you turn me away or touch me deep inside? And before this gets old, will it still feel the same? Theres no way this will die But if we get much closer, I could lose control And if your heart surrenders, youll need me to hold We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searchin our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searching our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield

11. Stairway To Hell

For so many years I held my breath for you, held under what became the ocean; struggling to find footing on what became the ocean floor…and now, as I reflect on what became my foundation… Who am I to say the grass was ever greener where my own feet struck on the earth? And that the fields they seemed much neater on my side of the fence; and who am I to question why you took the path you took? And who the fuck am I to open this closed book? But the pages just keep turning and my pen just won’t dry, but my eyes they won’t stop burning and yet you still have no reply I guess that in a way it had to be like this…and I guess in a way I’m glad it turned out like it did. Because I couldn’t stand your sight if I ran into you tonight; and if you died I just don’t think I’d have too much to say tonight…
