Track Name: Roswell
lie awake
half asleep
before it’s light out
feel nothing

and the tears
running dry
pinch yourself
don't know where it ends
no feeling

dreaming force
endless sky
this is just one
of our many fears
no feeling
without feeling

10 to 4
sun is high
in the desert marching
eternal side by side
no feeling
without feeling

and it's full
it's all mine
i control
make it real this time
Track Name: Secret Life
house is empty i'm on the lawn
make your bed and i'll drive you home
have your breakfast before he comes
safe in moonlight and fear the sun

secret brother is listening in
out the back door when nobody's looking
catch your sleeve on the burning stove
wishing i'm still invisible

somebody turned the light
heard what an angel said
looked at me crossed out
take me in

if i was bad to you
it doesn't matter to you
look out the car window and wave to you

safe in wartime, your favourite clothes
hold your breath till the sirens are close
fold your wings laid out on the floor
still missing now that i'm feeling so old

i was so bad for you
i'll be so far away from you
look at me crosshairs
run me through

remember the time
your hand in mine
your face is wet
still touches in bed
Track Name: Impossible
there we go, playing with our eldest fears
off to work, gotta find a job that's real
part of me is this alone
and when i'm feeling so old
consequence, they don't even know what's real

it's impossible, you've been run through with fear
love's a landfill, just another burning spear

letting go, all of this you're holding dear
miracles, thought i'd have a light this year
there's no one left
i'll wait for you
the choice is yours, i won't choose
loneliness, everything is so unreal

it's impossible, you've been run through with fear
love's a landfill, just another burning spear
it's impossible

oh it's nothing to be one of us
all the cold fears, they'll be the death of us
tentacles reaching up
sudden blackness
you could be the one
Track Name: Come Back
come down, so what
my face, his blood
don't wait, i might choose
too much, too much of you

don't you think he's not like the other ones
can't stay apart from eachother
doesn't my meaning muffle the blows that
pound my brain to sulphur

won't come back
won't come back
won't come back
won't come back

shake hands, don't wait
my tears, a lake
old friends, you and i
we'll call, but don't know why
Track Name: Hexe
hate yourself for what you're thinking, there's nothing you're left here all alone
why'd i waste my time and breath, you're a face that i'll forget you know
just someone who paid the rent, what's the point of living anywhere
i've told you everything, wasn't boring but don't you think i'm so dumb

now i wish i'd never met you, nothing's left of what you used to know
i've all told you everything, calling this a waste of time like

some dreams that i can't face yeah, drawn to there
some dreams that i'll erase yeah, drawn to there
some dreams that i can't face yeah, drawn to bad dreams
drawn to bad dreams in our blinds
drawn to bad dreams in our blinds

bad dreams and a starseed
and i'm ready now to be found
and i've found it won't be long
till i'm very young, very old

here's a song i put you in it, it's so cold the pills roll down your throat
while i wake up every night, there's some things that i can't fight you know
why would i try to save you now, what's the point, you're already gone
i would give you anything, feel so dumb, there's nothing left at all
Track Name: Threads
someone there, don't fall asleep
dreams are bare, under the sheets
the house so cold, it's meant for you and me
somehow trouble, will find us here

this will not pay for the threads of gold
sleep in the trash while the whistles blow
it's been a day now, and where'd you go
your houses are burning but you're out
baiting the darkness
baiting the darkness

here's a mistake when, the gold dust bowl
cuts you like steak knives, the blood runs cold
your house is on fire, the kids at home
you get so wasted that you'll go
baiting the darkness
baiting the darkness
Track Name: Apocalypse
somehow i feel no release when
i'm alone with anyone else
somehow i fall to pieces
when i wake up to nothing where you used to be
how it feels to be okay, closing eyes, very closed
too fucked up to enjoy, that's the game that i hold

somehow i feel the same
Track Name: Golden Age
waves roll down my cheeks again
6am feeling so sad
out of bed but still in cinders
wish that i had someone else's name
all i want's a simple thing
fall asleep and not wake up again
i'll go unmentioned, too much pressure
feel this low, i'll feel it always

i fell out heaven sent
in the bright lights we just look the same
happiness is the name that I'm given
isn't this the golden age

waves roll down my cheeks again
6am and feeling so down
force it out, a little kill
nothing's left, i mean there's no way
press my face up against the wall
cheek to cheek now, who are you looking for
all i want is to be wanted
fill this hole and you'll be
alright ok
always ok
i will love you
stupid thing

i feel like hell today
but it's better, better than nothing
happiness is the name that i'm given
isn't this the golden age
Track Name: Medicine
listening in to the voice on the line
says it's in trouble but you've lost it now
all those lovers in and out of my mind
so when you gonna come over and waste my time

it's a strange thing
how I'm mystified
by the angels all calling my precious name
and the same way they call for you

you know that feeling when a ghost walks by
rush of blood and chills in the spine
well i get that feeling every time
walking through the mall in the broad daylight

just feels so empty
with so many people around
when you get the bad news on the phone
already in a wheelchair, so cancer now
it's such a mystery, white trash thug king missing his crown

when there's ice on the floor
there's so much to forget
when it breaks i’ll be sure
you'll be in both of us

there's nothing you can say
you never saw this coming
but you can't escape the feeling that this isn't right
there's nothing else to do
you never saw this coming
when you've fallen to the floor, never again gonna walk upright
