Track Name: One Time
This could take you by surprise
So scrape the smoke out from your eyes
See the truth s clear as day
Before it all gets blown away

One time
You could be everything

Now I'll take you by the hand
And show you all my stupid plans
You coukd laugh or run away
No one's forcing you to stay
But I'd rather you stay

One time
You could be everything

Maybe I should stop it all
Or maybe it's true
May this is stupid
Or deeper than you
But one thing that's certain
Is it's happening

One time
You could be everything to me
Track Name: Bricks
Dust will
Wash away
Bricks are
Here to stay
Scrape away the mortar
As you build this wall
To Keep you safe from harm
And no one can break in

Close your
Self off
From the
Waking world
Block out all thew sunlight
Burns your eyes
Build it up so high
You can't come down

Smash it
Break it
Tear it down
Rend it
Tear it
It's all over now
Track Name: Desu
It seems that you've got confused, this is
picadilly station not harajuku
She's drawing sad animals for me to hug
Guess that's what it takes
But I won't tell anyone

She's never been to a music festival
She files her books in dewey decimal
Her hair is impossibly angular
Works in retail as a customer wrangler

And I guess that's ok
I'd rather see some
yellow red and purple
than another 50 shades of grey
Which she won't read until it comes out in Manga form
And If comes to a choice
Between Japanese
and JD Sports
Then shove me on a plane to Tokyo
Track Name: Statue
Verse 1

I've seen what you wanted
I've seen what you need
I've seen the best and the worst of you
Sat down and watched you leave

How do you keep this hold on me
Your little finger could hold back a train
I've found a way out of here
Size of a city helps me slip away


Chorus

I'd watch you do anything
If I was invited
I'd watch you do anything
If I was still frightened


Verse 2

You said this was forever
I don't know what to believe
All this sparks and nothing to light them with
Now I can barely breath

I know you put things in boxes
Was I to big to just put me away
We may never speak again
We've got to much to say
Track Name: Low Fidelity
it starts with a motion
keeping in time
a little emotion
and i'll soon be fine
a girl with potential
to be in my life
a girl with potential
to be someone's wife

slow down
slow down
i will soon be here so won't you
look into my eyes and tell me
that i might take his place inside you
but i can't take that place inside your heart

so how are you doing?
at last were alone
you turn the light out
i'll turn off my phone
i'm happy to play this game
in your carefulk web of lies
there's a pain inside you
you try so hard to disguise

so slow down
slow down
now that i am here why don't you
look into my eyes and tell me
that i can take his place inside you
but i can't take that place inside your heart

so slow down
slow down
before i try to leave why don't you
look into my eyes and tell me
that i might take that place inside you
but i can't take that place inside..

now slow down
slow down
before i try to leave why don't you
look into my eyes and tell me
that i might take that place inside you
now that i took his place inside your heart
Track Name: WATER POLO!
I'm sure you can work it out
Track Name: Serration
V1:
Never met you
So I can't miss you
Never knew you
But feel the pain you caused

Your selfish actions
Sent out shockwaves
Your influence
More important than you thought

Chorus:
Why'd you have to leave?
Took her heart away
Left with emptiness
She just takes the blame

Why'd you have to leave?
Took her heart away
Left with emptiness
She just takes the blame

V2:
Never met you
So I can't miss you
But I know her
And I feel the pain you caused

You have my sympathy
She has my empathy
This changes everything
But nothing's truly lost
Track Name: This Is Not A Temporary Situation
i thought i had it all
but how was i to know
hindsight makes it obvious
but how was i to know
at first all i could do was hate
but now i realise
you had to choose a path to take
and it was never going to be mine

i need to have control
or else i'll fall apart
decide to let you know
the pieces of my heart
the only thing that helps
is making myself numb
can't seem to let you go
i can't avoid it

wish that you could feel
what burns inside of me
maybe we'll never find
what we really want to say
our emotions locked inside
here's the key but who will drive
how could you ever understand
you're still hiding from yourself

this is not a temporary situation
i really thought i'd done it this time
but if i made plans i'd be using an obvious cliche
and that really wouldn't do you justice

i can't tell you what i need anymore
nothing i can do will make you change
i can't stand in the way of what you have to be
all i want is just a moment with you
Track Name: Flying Pirate Ship
I made the words up on the spot. They are silly.
