Track Name: Glad To Be Scattered
Thanks for not asking what you really want to know. And tell me how does it feel not to let it show, not to let it show? Maybe I could leave behind the part that let you down. I’ll take the long way and home and see what you found. See what you found in the hours I left for you. In the dark I see what’s left for me. We’re glad to be scattered and torn across the past because love at eighteen was never meant to last. So thanks for not asking what you really want to know. And tell me how does it feel not to let it show, not to let it show?
Track Name: Sound as Ever
I can tell you can barely hear me any more. And you can’t wake up to stop. Roll over and hear my voice. I can feel you’re slipping away from me now. And it’s too late, too late to get to you. I’m taken back for a little while. Sound as ever it’s going to be. Don’t drag down in your misery. I can see it’s the last time you’ll come through. I wait for the fall. I wait for the right thing to say. I’m taken back for a little while. Sound as ever it’s going to be. Drag me own in your mystery. I’ve taken hold of your misery.
Track Name: Seashaken Heart
If I wake up tomorrow I will try and breathe some fire into your cold heart. Your seahaken heart. You try and get me out of bed. You’re moving out today you say you might need a little help with your heavy things. If I wake up tomorrow I will try and breathe some fire into my broken heart. My seahaken heart.
Track Name: Happy
Tonight our war ended and I’m a little afraid of the dark. Dark straights burn cold, my cold pride. But here’s you heart, here right next to me. Makes a sound that seems so happy, that seems so happy. Shall I welcome the feeling? Inside love’s never lied or lost weight. It weighs down your stone cold stare. But you laugh, laugh when you want to and I could never make you happy, make you happy.
Track Name: Here at the End
Torn and alone this wounded river town, trying to ease my way back home. Not making a new start I already tried, waking alone lost in a lie. Because love’s not patient and here at the end it drags and drags and won’t let go. It won’t let go.
Track Name: I Don't Understand These Machines
You might say that I don’t understand these machines. And they don’t understand me. So close your eyes baby I’ll be here when you get back. Waiting here like I’ve waited before. But I’m not waiting around while this anger strikes fire. This anger strikes me. This anger strikes fire. You might say that I don’t understand these machines and they don’t understand me. They don’t understand me.
Track Name: It's Pretty Hard to Go Home (After Something Like That)
Frozen side by side mouth the words I’m heavy into staying alive. Above the street sign bent down three more feet when you hit full stride. It’s pretty hard to go home after something like that. And I’m real, real heavy into staying alive. So maybe I’m using you to get to me. Or maybe I using me to get to you. So take another trip down the bad side of trouble you better slow. Can you even see the accident, get me close, do you see me inside? It’s pretty hard to go home after something like that. And I’m real, real heavy into staying alive. So maybe I’m using you to get to me. Or maybe I using me to get to you.
Track Name: Flood
Why did you flood my time with yourself? And how did you ever get to me? I’m not scared anymore. I get it together and I break down, oh, and I break down. I didn’t expect to hesitate or lose weight in the wrong place. I didn’t expect that you’d be waiting for our break down, oh, when we break down. It’s so dangerous don’t tell anyone this story. It’s so dangerous don’t tell anyone this story of us. I believe I left a little soon, it was too long in the air again. I left out just enough to keep you guessing when I break down, oh, when I breakdown. When I break down, oh, when I break down. It’s so dangerous don’t tell anyone this story. It’s so dangerous don’t tell anyone this story of us.
Track Name: With Stars Down
It’s hard now with all the stars turned down. Tell me what I did that made you doubt me. October, cold starts and sober shoulders. I changed everything to lure you away. To lure you away, still burning in my arms, don’t you ever get a little bit lonely? Jaded and fading let’s never look back so I can forget you. It’s hard now with all the stars turned down. Tell me what I did that made you doubt me. That made you doubt me.
