Track Name: Let Her Down
Are you gonna let her Down?
Pack her off and turn around?
Are you gonna fail her now?
Sail her Down.
You've been circling the Drain,
Ever since you lost your aim,
Turn a loss into a gain,
Fan the flames

Will she ever fins herself?
If not her, then someone else?
Gotta break out of the spell,
Never tell,
Is she gonna see the sign?
Walk away and draw the line?
She'll, in time, be fine, or mine,
I don't mind

Wrong or right you need to decide,
Wrong or right to live out this lie
Wrong or right this is where we collide
You and I

Are we gonna find another time to understand better than this,
How we got ourselves into this kind of bliss?

Are we gonna find another time to understand better than this,
How we got ourselves into this kind of Mess?
Track Name: Never
I don’t know which way to go,
The fork in the road will divide the sins down the middle
I’m imprisoned by the space,
Between you and I, and I can’t erase the memories,

Out of sight not out of mind,
I try to pretend that we never met, Still I feel you,
Try to fill the empty nights,
The void slowly closing in on me, suffocating

Always moving, But I never get anywhere

If by shutting down my mind,
I never think too hard, I can tell myself it’s working
Fading in and burning out,
I can’t find the words to describe the end completely.
Track Name: Wave
There’s weight in the wave
And we’re never gonna build
If we wither away
My fate is with the sails
I wane and I pull on the gun
As we get away
I found a wave

These days are racing away
Chasing the sun
I never pull on the reigns
I waste as I fade
I wane and I pull on the gun
As we get away
I found a wave

Directionless nights
Before I broke from the chain
Was caught in the break
Got washed into the bay
And I hollowed out
Fair well, yesterday
Was lost in the dark
I found a wave
Track Name: Game
There's no need to say, I know that you know it,
You've made a mistake,
Can you forget? 'cause you've gotta live it,
Take it to your grave,

Every day is always the same,
Douse the flames, Burning with pain, playing a game,

There's no need to stay, I know that you're going,
don't make me wait,
You get what you get, when nothing is given, Just leave it to fate.
Track Name: Take the blame
When your instincts overpower your mind,
Can’t control what’s left inside
You and I both know it’s on tonight
I can see it in your eyes

We’ll give into it,
You’re here before you came,
Don’t wanna get out of it
I’d gladly take the blame, to share your pain

Hope disintegrates into the night
Only one thing on your mind
Being drawn into the sacrifice
Only following the signs

Imagination flows from reel to reel
Impossible to see the lines
Burnt the edges if what you can feel
Hard to count up all the times
Track Name: Stay/Away
I’m so Tired of Waiting for you,
You don’t seem tired at all,
If I thought what you’re saying was true,
You’d be up against the wall

Drift apart, from the start, a change of heart.

When you go away , I won’t ask you to stay

There was a time we were going up,
Now we’re only going down,
So much water under the bridge,
Do I tread water or drown?

I can’t cope with being awake,
watching shadows of regret,
I can’t dream of anything else,
What was seen and what was said
Track Name: Control
Losing my control
Falling like the sun
Sunken haunted wreck
Laying on the floor
Breathing smoke,
From fire that burns beneath your bones

It’s never good enough,
Out in to the night I go forever searching for myself,
And I’ll find a way to define away Mistakes I can’t forget
Can’t escape the pressure rising up
Consume and possess me

Imprisoned by the days, far ahead of me
Slip into a dream,
Decline it weathers me,
The dropping of the leaves, you leave me to bleed
Track Name: Dig her grave
Well you're gonna bail and you'll do it well,
Never let her know you're on her tail,
Hold her hand, and let her fail
Call her Bluff push her to the rail
Dig her grave

So the Penny's dropped like spreading seeds,
Bet he's gonna take her to her knees
Make her pay, nothing comes for free
She's out of luck, she'll never be your queen,
Dig her grave,
Track Name: Like a thief
We'll leave this city so nobody can see,
We'll lay together and pretend that we're free

"You can take it from me" she said "Like a thief"

We hide our stories and our futures from them,
Make up the reasons t be better again,

They're writing lies and spreading hate on the screens,
And while you're sleeping they are watching you dream,

we're losing people to a deadly disease
There's people dying on the side of the street,

Well I'll suit you my dear, I'm corrupt to the bones,
We are the dead, never alone.
Track Name: Down in the Sand
Down in the sand
Never found what I wanted
And I bleed for it every day
Breaking my back
Cos it’s hell in a trap
And you know they ain't gonna pay

I'm insane, anyway
Diamonds and demons
That lead us to treason
When we don’t know the way to face

I fall into a cage
And I don’t know
if I'm gonna see you again
Track Name: Pour Some Shade into your Cup
Lighten up, I'll pour some shade into your cup,
What I've learned: the truth will always hurt
It Bubbles up, It's written down with Blood and ink,
Snatch a breath, hit the ground, take a sip,

Then they hope that one day they'll be brad new,
All over again, they'll bleach the stains

They're looking at you, whichever way you turn,
Through melted glass, if it flickers it can burn,
Well you can see that I can't take the heat,
and when you leave, I'm broken by defeat.
