Track Name: Good Grief
Good Grief

If you can’t feel a fucking thing
It’s time to change the way
That you spend all of your nights
And waste all of your days

The weight you lay
With words you sew
The growing pains
Of getting old

This is how we love our lives

If you’re still out there holding on
To all that once was
Sever all the ties
Just cut them off

The weight you lay
With words you sew
The growing pains
Of getting old

This is how we love our lives

Yeah
I just want to let you know that
I swear
My hate outweighs my love
I won’t get caught on broken endings

Denial

It takes the bigger part of me
It takes the bigger part of you
It takes the better part of me
Track Name: Salt & Stitches
Salt & Stitches

I’ve got chills
I’ve got aches
I watched my past blow across the lake
(Is there a place for us,
Somewhere beyond this rut)

When you’re ash
When you’re dust
Stitches & Salt won’t affect your cuts
(When perspective reigns,
we won’t be wasting days)

It’s ok to take what you’ve been told
It’s ok to grow beyond the mold

We’re alright
We’re just fine
Don’t wanna talk about it
If it helps
You sleep at night
Let all your stories out
We’re alright
We’re just fine
A flashback for the broken hearted
We’re alright
We’re just fine

You’ve lost hope
And you’re numb
Needles and pins lodged in your gums
(And it’s in my head,
and it’s in my home)

And your brain
Repeats
The horror film from within a deep sleep
(When the lights are out
& you’re lost in space and sound)

Just like an atlas holding in the world
(Beyond the lake)
Just like an atlas weighed down by the earth
(The same mistakes)
Just like an atlas holding in the world

It’s ok to take what you’ve been told
It’s ok to grow beyond the mold
It’s ok to move beyond the lake
It’s ok to make the same mistakes
Track Name: Saigon
Saigon

Your hands are weathered and dry
You wiped down the walls
And you bleached the sky
A pain in your back since 87
The roses have since never looked the same

An unpaid service just for the love
Us kids are fine, us kids are fine
You say there’s not enough money
And not enough to keep the colour in your eyes

Come back and
Continue to colour
To the outlines
Of our lives

Even though we talk it’s not the same
I need to refresh the memory of your face
Dust lies in every crease you made
A flash back to youth pulled you away
In a crowded boat you crossed the waves
Old blood at home new life was made
They never knew how far you’d stray
Only to return to your birth place

Come back and
Continue to colour
To the outlines
Of our lives

I tried so hard
To make it easier on you
Track Name: Raymond Island
Raymond Island

It’s in my head
All the cracks and the creases are still there
And I’m trying to work it out
But some things don’t fade

I thought this place
And all of its faces were erased
Just boxed up
In the attic inside my brain

Not dead or living
Just somewhere between

These old friends of mine
Have all moved away
The streets are empty now
Every home feels like a grave
These back roads
All lead to houses that were homes
A stock pile of memories
Of a life we made

Not dead or living
Just somewhere between

I wish I could go back
To more than water and black sand
To see foundations laid
Just to observe the change
I wish I could go back
Just to see the face of my dad
To see foundations laid
Just to observe the change

Not better off alone
Not better off in my head

There’s an echo in the waves
The repetition of the days
Throw the ashes to the lake

The cracks and the creases are still there
Some things don’t change
Track Name: Pavement
Pavement

Took a train to the city
Thought something might be going down
But we found the dead heart
Of a dead town
In the streets that were usually living
It seemed everyone had given up
Torn it down
Worn it out

But we love it just the same
It’s in our blood it’s in our veins

We cut a hole through the pavement
Just trying to get to the core
We were reaching out
To the underground
We fucked with the fascists and racists
In the hope of hitting our own oil
To tap the ground
Of this tired town

But we love it just the same
It’s in our blood it’s in our veins

I love where I’m living
In this dead town
In the space between lost and found
I love where I’m living
On this backdrop
And I’m never gonna give it up

There you go
You throw it to the wind
You talk about the future
Stacking statements once again

We’re all the same
It’s in our blood it’s in our veins

It’s black & white
We’re the same inside
Track Name: Cope
COPE

First light
Town house fears of flat lines
Last night
Emptiness expands on a numb mind
You’re right
The beats are down and the timings off
Our lives
Don’t intersect at the present point

Maybe I’ll see you in the next life
Maybe I’ll see you at the right time

Check my head I’ll try to cope
Then hang me up and let me go
My brain is fried and my legs don’t work
I’ve been cut down by the curse of
Unsupported hope

Erase it
I guess that it’s best if we let it go
Embrace it
It’s all just a part of getting old
First world
Problems don’t need to be solved
The last time
I find myself tied to a telephone

Maybe I’ll see you in the next life
Maybe I’ll see you at the right time

Check my head I’ll try to cope
Then hang me up and let me go
My brain is fried and my legs don’t work
I’ve been cut down by the curse of
Unsupported hope

I’d trade this city life
For a second try
Track Name: Like Glue
Like Glue

Carry me home I’m skin and bones
For you were the fat that filled me up
Sticks and stones friends and foes
You are the rut in which I’m stuck

oh oh oh
I love you so
oh oh oh
I get off on it

Riddled with holes from sharpened blows
You drove your fork within my back
And I can’t sleep or count the sheep
Cos you lead them down your tongue
into your mouth

oh oh oh
I love you so
oh oh oh
I get off on it

It could be a look that wrecks my day
It could be a look or a cold embrace
I lived for thrills you threw my way
Now I’m just skin in the wind

Just like glue
Like Glue

Let it rest in my chest
It’s on my mind and on my breath
Track Name: Heavy Rage
Heavy Rage

There’s a light
A crack in the fabric
containing the black of tonight
And it’s alright
It’s our hope
A hole in the ceiling
through which the darkness flows
A way to get out

If I play my cards right
We might make it through another night
My conscience says it should be done
Long ago I should have given up

We lie
Down by the roadside
watching the bridges burn
When will the daylight save us
Can we try
A collective harmony
maybe just for tonight
I’ll try if you try

I should have given up

Maybe I’m too quick to take the easy road
Feels like we’re going nowhere
taking it this slow
Track Name: Bad Blood
Bad Blood

Small towns
They don’t know
(Say it’s alright, say it’s alright)
That itch
Self control
Say it’s alright, say it’s alright
Hollow inside, hollow inside


They say it’s only
Only a matter of time
Coz when you’re lonely
You can’t stop your wandering...


Closed minds
They don’t know(Say it’s alright, say its alright)
Your life
Lost control
(say it’s alright, say it’s alright
hollow inside, hollow inside) 
You just can’t, you just can’t
Erase it, erase it


They say it’s only
Only a matter of time
Coz when you’re lonely
You can’t stop your wandering...


Who cares what they say
Fuck this small town anyway
When you’re lonely
You can’t stop your wandering


Bad Blood
Track Name: The Bottom Of The Lake
The Bottom Of The Lake

I’m drunk I’m cold and I want to go home
So I’ll dive right in
though I’m fully clothed
I long for my bed and to lie with you
And hear the rain pitter patter
on our old tin roof


I’ll fight the white water with a drunken hand
With every stroke I take
i reach for land
I long for my bed and to lie with you
And hear the rain pitter patter
on our old tin roof


I am
Just another man stuck in the chain


I’m close enough now
to see the porch lights glow
And the luminance
fills me with hope
I think I see you
moving in the light
But you turn it out
and you go inside
And I’m alone again
in the cold dark night


I am
Just another man stuck in the chain


On the bottom of the lake
