Track Name: 126
And I'm tired,
And I'm broken,
I'm not over this,
I can't believe a word she said,

I'm a liar,
I'm outspoken,
I'm not over this,
I can't believe,

I can't sleep,
As the weight of this world drags me down,
I won't forget this again
Track Name: Learning To Swim (ft. Alex Rogers from 7 Minutes In Heaven)
Intro:

She keeps my head underwater,
Most nights I'm just feeling afraid,
Nothing but these memories in my mind,
To keep me sane,
They keep me sane,

Verse 1:

And everybodys talking about how,
I've been in this sorry state for months now,
I swear I'll smash my own fucking lights out,
So let me gear up for the next bout,
Cos it's on and I need this,

Time after time,
I always waited for line after line,
Cos it's on and I need this,
I'm feeling fine which means that I'm not feeling anything,

Chorus:

She keeps my head underwater,
Most nights I'm just feeling afraid,
Nothing but these memories in my mind,
To keep me sane,

No point of staying now,
I'm thinking of bailing out,
I'm tired of waiting for change,

Nothing to talk about,
No-one can save me now,

Verse 2:

Just slow it down,
I've been thinkin' about going alone now,
This road that I am on is a long out,
The overwhelming feeling of this doubt,
But I'm here and I'm breathing,

I tried to hide this lonley feeling tonight,
I'm alright cos I'm here and I'm breathing,
Still trying to fight this lonley feeling tonight,
I'm alright cos I'm here and I'm breathing,

Chorus:

She keeps my head underwater,
Most nights I'm just feeling afraid,
Nothing but these memories in my mind,
To keep me sane,

No point of staying now,
I'm thinking of bailing out,
I'm tired of waiting for change,

Nothing to talk about,
No-one can save me now,
It's always gonna be the same,

Middle 8:

This is life,
Through my eyes,
Let me tell you about it,

And let me,
Apoligise,
A thousand times,
What you see,
Is sentiment,
And broken lies,

Final Chorus:

She keeps my head underwater,
Most nights I'm just feeling afraid,
Nothing but these memories in my mind,
To keep me sane,

She keeps my head underwater,
Most nights I'm just feeling afraid,
Nothing but these memories in my mind,
To keep me sane,

No point of staying now,
I'm thinking of bailing out,
I'm tired of waiting for change,

Nothing to talk about,
No-one can save me now,
It's always gonna be the same,

It's always gonna be the same,
(I'm tired of waiting),
Track Name: Dreamland Ain't All It's Cracked Up To Be
Intro:

It's been a bad start to a terrible year,
and I can't pick my feet up off the ground,

Verse 1:

I thought I would be,
Better off this year,
Now I know that's not happening,
And I know that I let in,
All of my forever,
We wrote this together,
Down on my luck and now I can't change the weather,

But you've changed so much in the past few years,
I can't seem to keep it up,

Chorus:

It's been a bad start to a terrible year,
And I can't pick my feet up off the ground,
I guess I let you down a little,
And I'll be better next time around,

And yet I'm still sleeping on bathroom floors,
Guess nothing has changed from the year before,
I guess I let you down a little,
And I won't do that anymore,

Verse 2:

And I thought that time could change you,
And I thought I would make do,
But I'm gone,
Not moving on,
(Not moving on),

Chorus:

It's been a bad start to a terrible year,
And I can't pick my feet up off the ground,
I guess I let you down a little,
And I'll be better next time around,

And yet I'm still sleeping on bathroom floors,
Guess nothing has changed from the year before,
I guess I let you down a little,
And I won't do that anymore,

Middle 8:

So don't forget me

Final Chorus:


It's been a bad start to a terrible year,
And I can't pick my feet up off the ground,
I guess I let you down a little,
And I'll be better next time around yeah,

And I'll be better next time around,
I'll be much better next time around,
Better next time around,
Track Name: Forty Eight
Verse 1:

First they bring unrest,
Then they put the knife in your back,
Twist it around until the pain ends,
Pulled apart by the wolf pack,

Chorus:

Our heartbeat is slowly fading away,
Unable to uphold our hummanity and,
We can't just let this go,
Divided so alone,
When my hearts broken,
How can we follow yours

Verse 2:

So don't forget me now,

Who'd ever thought that it would be like this,
I never thought we'd end up so amiss,
And this time who can we ask for me,
And this time I can't bare the weight alone,

I can't bare the weight alone,

Chorus:

Our heartbeat is slowly fading away,
Unable to uphold our hummanity and,
We can't just let this go,
Divided so alone,
When my hearts broken,
How can we follow yours

Middle 8:

So we just stand by,
And watch it burn,
Through the lies,
And deceit,
They keep eating at the weak,
Wasting time,
Incomplete,
Whilst you choke on every,
Word,
That they say,
So alone,
But believe it we're okay,
We're okay,
Who even needs resistance

Chorus:

Our heartbeat is slowly fading away,
Unable to uphold our hummanity and,
We can't just let this go,
Divided so alone,
When my hearts broken,
How can we follow
Track Name: Lowhill Lane
Verse 1:

Watch the plates crash down on the living room floor,
Let the world ask why I was looking for more,
And my neck ached hard it was feeling so sore,
Trying to keep my head up straight,

What do you want from me I gave all my apathy,
And I just can't wait anymore,
Feeling the gravity back to my family,
The only place I feel secure,
The only place I feel secure,
They only way I wanted more,

Chorus:

I'll burn bridges all the way,
Trying to feel something,
Tried to tell you that I'm humble,
But I need help,
And the thing is,
Well I mean well,

If I could only leave the background,
Wonder if that day will come round,
Try and fight that fear of falling for far too long,

Verse 2:

Coulda' been anything I wanted to be,
But I still need patience and guidance to get the best from me,
And I,

I feel like I'm a waste of time,
I guess that's always how I'll feel,
It seems these days just pass me by,
Just give me something to believe in,

Try and see it through my eyes,
I've failed a million fucking times,
I guess I'll say I'll stay tonight,

Chorus:

I'll burn bridges all the way,
Trying to feel something,
Tried to tell you that I'm humble,
But I need help,
And the thing is,
Well I mean well,

If I could only leave the background,
Wonder if that day will come round,
Try and fight that fear of falling for far too long,

Middle 8:

I should have known,
But I'd never really know that,
You'd up and go,
At the first sign of impact,

Now I know,
I guess it's all my fault,
I'm a wiser man now, I should have known,

Chorus:

I'll burn bridges all the way,
Trying to feel something,
Tried to tell you that I'm humble,
But I need help,
And the thing is,
Well I mean well,

If I could only leave the background,
Wonder if that day will come round,
Try and fight that fear of falling for far too long,
For far too long,
