Track Name: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Bones
Intro:

Head on my shoulders,
Five years ago,
I was biding my time,
Now I'm just getting older,
I know

Verse 1:

I've been walking around for months now,
Pacing back and forth as I try and think of ways just to make a sound,
Trying to find some ground in the turnaround,
(Turnaround)

And I've been liking the way she always says that she needs me,
More than ever when she's gunning for a second chance,
(A chance to much in my eyes,
As you shake me more than ever with your confound lies)
And our lives are just falling to pieces tonight,
(Get my head straight,
Keep my head straight)
About how I'm so lucky because your keeping me by your side,
(But I don't need this)

Chorus:

Head on my shoulders,
Five years ago,
I was biding my time,
Now I'm just getting older,
I know,
(I know),

You're not to blame,
But each time that you say that you're,
Keeping me close when you're not,
You know in the end you'll get caught,

Verse 2:

And I can't see where I'm going but I know that,
You won't be standing here when I'm older,
(I never thought you we're coming back,
I always knew you weren't coming back)

I can't perceive,
What I can't see,
This always happens to me,
This always happens to me,

It's not the same thing that you see,
This always happens to me,
This always happens to,

Chorus:

Head on my shoulders,
Five years ago,
I was biding my time,
Now I'm just getting older,
I know,
(I know),

You're not to blame,
But each time that you say that you're,
Keeping me close when you're not,
You know in the end you'll get caught,

Middle 8:

I s'pose these days it's just the thought,
That you can't fix something if it won't break anymore,

I could feel it in my bones,
And I felt it in my veins,
I guess things have to change,

Chorus:

Head on my shoulders,
Five years ago,
I was biding my time,
Now I'm just getting older,
I know,
(I know),

You're not to blame,
But each time that you say that you're,
Keeping me close when you're not,
You know in the end you'll get caught,

Lyrics:

Verse 1:

I've been here before,
And I'll be here again,
But I'm not sure my friends will appreciate that,

You're pulling me under,
You're pulling me under,

And I'm rolling away like a freight train,
Just trying to find my line once again,

What do you take me for,
What do you take me for,

I'm not sure if I'm just tired,
Or giving up,

Chorus:

This is where I stand,
At the back of the line,
Trying to be heard,
But try as I,

It's not that hard to be nothing to anyone,
When you're nobody at all,
It's not that hard to be nothing to anyone,
To anyone at all,

Verse 2:

So I follow my dreams and I hate it,
Feels like my time here is wasted,

And I'll never know,
And I'll never know,
And I'll never know,
And I'll never know

How it feels to be complacent,
To be happy within my placement,

I'm tired of saying tommorows a new day,
When I know it's just the same as those days gone by,

I'm not sure if I'm just broken,
What have I done,

Chorus:

This is where I stand,
At the back of the line,
Trying to be heard,
But try as I,

It's not that hard to be nothing to anyone,
When you're nobody at all,
It's not that hard to be nothing to anyone,
To anyone at all,

Middle 8:

Try as I might,
(Try as I might),
I never suceed,
(I'll never suceed),
One shot at this life,
(Shot at this life),
I think it's over for me,

Final Chorus:

It's not that hard to be nothing to anyone,
When you're nobody at all,
It's not that hard to be nothing to anyone,
To anyone at all,

This is where I stand,
At the back of the line,
(It's not that hard to be nothing to anyone)
Trying to be heard,
(to anyone at all)
But try as I might
Track Name: Panama (feat. Andrew Soares & Matt Poulton)
Verse 1:

Miles and miles of road to go,
With no place left to call our home we,
Gave that up long ago,
For a one way trip to mexico and I,

Keep living my life like this,
Swimming along we act like fish I know,
And even though the plot lines twist,
We'll always find a way out,
Always find a way back,

Bridge:

And I just can't believe,
They won't stop coming for me,
(Coming for me)
Coming for me,

Chorus:

And he's just trying to find a way,
To say he'll make it back some day,
Trying to find a reason to keep going come what may,
And I'll keep my head held high,
You know I'm digging myself this hole,
You never know where it might go,

Verse 2:

I keep on trying,
But I'm not sure why,

Just trying to find a way out,
Living my life I build myself with doubt,
I can't live a single day now,
Trying to find a way out,
Trying to find a way back,

Bridge:

And I just can't believe,
They won't stop coming for me,
(Coming for me)
Coming for me,

Chorus:

And he's just trying to find a way,
To say he'll make it back some day,
Trying to find a reason to keep going come what may,
And I'll keep my head held high,
You know I'm digging myself this hole,
You never know where it might go,

Middle 8:

As the sun burns out,
And we all fall down,
We've got nothing left to say for ourselves,

As the sun burns out,
And we all fall down,
We've got nothing left to say for ourselves,

As the sun burns out,
And we all fall down,
We've got nothing left to say for ourselves,

As the sun burns out,
And we all fall down,
We've got nothing left to say for ourselves,
Nothing left to say for yourself,

Final Chorus:

And he's just trying to find a way,
To say he'll make it back some day,
Make it back some day, X4
Track Name: Dead Weight
Verse 1:

I've been thinking about saying it's over,
When I know that I can't find time,
To make things work,
These days they hurt,
When I waste my hours away afraid of going outside and I know,

I wake up every single day feeling older,
As the seconds they pass me by,
Tonight I'll walk,
Away from all that I can't find,

(And I just can't find time to make it,
How could I know,
I never had time to make time for you,
And I'm thinking I'm ready,
I hold myself steady,
Feeling that I can't find)

Chorus:

And I didn't want this,
To be perfectly honest,
All of this pain is so real to me,

I can't find a day now,
Where I'm not keeping my head down,
All this time it tears me up,

And I know,
And I know,
As my world turns bleak and paler,

And I know,
And I know,
I'll always be a complete failure,

Verse 2:

I can't find the strength to pull me out of this hole,
It keeps dragging me down a familiar road,
Where I'm livid,
I'm hating,
I'm screaming,
Debating,
Wish I could turn back years,

Save me from myself I hate this,
I can't keep this up for one more day,
I can't take back the things I say,


Chorus:

And I didn't want this,
To be perfectly honest,
All of this pain is so real to me,

I can't find a day now,
Where I'm not keeping my head down,
All this time it tears me up,

And I know,
And I know,
As my world turns bleak and paler,

And I know,
And I know,
I'll always be a complete failure,

Middle 8:

Don't know how I keep this standing up,
My world it falls and I can't stop,
It's always getting to that point where,
The worst of me's the best that I expect,

Don't know why I can't stop giving up,
I guess these days I've had enough,
It's always getting to that point where,
The worst of me's the best that I expect,


Chorus:

And I didn't want this,
To be perfectly honest,
All of this pain is so real to me,

I can't find a day now,
Where I'm not keeping my head down,
All this time it tears me up,

And I didn't want this,
To be perfectly honest,
All of this pain is so real to me,

I can't find a day now,
Where I'm not keeping my head down,
All this time it tears me up,

And I know,
And I know,
As my world turns bleak and paler,

And I know,
And I know,
I'll always be a complete failure,

And I know,
I'll always be a complete failure,

And I know,
I'll always be a complete failure,

And I know, and I know, and I know,
And I know, and I know, and I know, and I know
