With a bag of dust and time to kill Wasted away in search of cheap thrills As morning breaks and we're coming down We start another day in this broken town What we knew in the heat of the sun And tried to keep secret from everyone What we knew from May to September Could never survive the cold of winter Am I as unimportant as this silence makes me feel? When you're all that makes me real And all the things I want to say Are only words that get in the way When I just wish I was real like you There always something here to remind me In every picture and memory I'm not getting to grips with moving on Or coming to terms with the fact that you're gone Am I as unimportant as this silence makes me feel? When you're all that makes me real And all the things I want to say Are only words that get in the way When I just wish I was real like you Thorn in my side The guilt I bear Realising that no-one's there Like an open wound That will never heal It makes me real Am I as unimportant as this silence makes me feel? When you're all that makes me real And all the things I want to say Are only words that get in the way When I just wish I was real like you
2.
You're stuck in your head and these four walls The streets are running rivers again There's no shelter from it all You ask if the rain will ever end But there's a storm inside And the water's creeping up You wait and hope it subsides But you can't hold back the flood That condemns you And overwhelms you Stripped away There's nothing to hide But you can't calm All the storms inside You'll take any comfort you find Or any kind light so you can see You long for the spark that died To fill the gap where your life should be But there's a storm inside And the water's creeping up You wait and hope it subsides But you can't hold back the flood That condemns you And overwhelms you Stripped away There's nothing to hide But you can't calm All the storms inside

I don't know what's good for me Sometimes I feel I've just swapped poisons But without these pills and remedies I'll be dragged back To people I've already been I'm my own worst enemy Doubting if the breakthrough's going to come What if I had kept on hiding You'd be none the wiser If I'd just kept on smiling All of these reminders Are myriad time machines The memories that come to mind Are footprints long since left behind In the end all things recede But moving on is too good to believe I don't know what's best for me I sometimes think I do this on purpose Maybe I think that I need the rain Just to pretend I can wash it all away But it's hard, when nothing stops the pain I always have to convince myself The best thing to do is ask for help Fears for my life scared me half to death But it's too late when you find there's nothing left All of these reminders Myriad time machines The memories that come to mind Are footprints long since left behind In the end all things recede But moving on is too good for me All of these reminders Myriad time machines The memories that come to mind Are footprints long since left behind In the end all things recede But moving on is too good to believe
4.
Out on a limb knowing I'm wrong All the days seem to drift into one You see the veil, you see the surface But you can't tell what's going on So I bite my lip, I bite my tongue Hide the truth about what I've become Script to forget, a script to remember How to behave in front of everyone Take all these words This piece of dust Breathe it in In the sour air Inside the jar Of a blank stopped world Catch it all on film To rewind and repeat To pause and hold 'Til they get what they want From their suicide doll You need advice but there is none No-one knows what's to be done It's best to think the worst is over Best not to hope in case worse is to come Take all these words This piece of dust Breathe it in In the sour air Inside the jar Of a blank stopped world Catch it all on film To rewind and repeat To pause and hold 'Til they get what they want From their suicide doll I am, I am, I am

We're scratched at the surface Only to reveal The very things we've always Wanted to conceal And all of those moments We wish we could catch The times when time meant nothing Have gone by in a flash Wish I could make the world slow down Enough to keep you here somehow You take all the light when you are gone Leaving me to face the dark alone But I can't make the world slow down I can't seem to live in the now I try to stop the past from breaking through I turn around, the future's coming too soon With no sense of balance I get easily tripped So eager for you to believe in me I easily get tricked And all of the questions That I never asked And all of the answers That stayed beyond my grasp There's only an echo When I call your name My better judgement Knows it's all in vain The force of impact Takes away our breath Try to hang on but life and time Pushes us closer to death

Sour 04:53
I lie awake in my bed And I hear your voices screaming I hear a break in the noise And then one of you leaving Have you forgotten me Or do you think I that can't hear you? And in the palm of my hand There's a line broken in two The days turn into weeks And the truth that I'm learning Is always dragging me down To where all that anger's burning You try to make it up to me But it's too much too little, too late too And you should know by now Nothing's fixed with "I love you" Sour, you made it all sour Sour everything you leave behind Has all hope been erased? What future will I face? But right now even trying seems like a waste Why do you force me to choose When every choice means I lose? Can't you see I've still got so much growing up to do? And through the time that has passed I still find that moment haunting Waiting for the sun But never getting to the morning You know that making the call It might not do any good But in the back of my mind I just wish you would

How We Heal 04:24
These aren't the unpolished diamonds That people will claim as theirs These are the shards of broken glass That still hurt, though no-one cares The corners that never round off The edges that are always rough No-one said but everyone knew That I was just your pity fuck Nobody's innocent We're all guilty by degrees Now I guess we've both been used Is this how we heal? These are the shoes that never fit The couplet that never rhymed These are the choices that never got made Chances lost 'cause no-one's tried If you're troubled but beautiful You'll never be alone Everyone wants to share your pain But the rest of us are on our own Nobody's innocent We're all guilty by degrees Now I guess we've both been used Is this how we heal? To think we've learned our lesson To think we've come out better Couldn't be further from the truth Is this how we heal?

Fake 04:03
I'm alone you don't care Can you ever care too much? Alone in our separate worlds But these bubbles never touch You won't notice I'm gone But it's a straw for me to clutch But if I didn't know better You could put it down to beginner's luck But the only things that I feel Are anger and emptiness Put on a brave face So you can't see I'm still a mess I can't do what you ask of me Or do what you want me to do I'm too scared to try But I can fake it for you You said you wanted to talk But you didn't have the time So what you really meant Was that I don't have a space in your life The only time I exist And you have to acknowledge me You only hold out your hand To push me further out to sea And it's never been clearer to me That I don't mean anything to you I wish I could be something more But it's the best that I can do I had such low expectations You didn't fail to let me down Everything you needed to say Was said without a sound
9.
I'm breathing again Using up your oxygen And everything I ever dreamed Is further away than it's ever seemed Each reminder turns out to be Another stranglehold on my memory I can't ever pause and reflect When your hands are gripping my neck Can't you see you're suffocating me? I'm trying to move on And in time the shame, it will be gone But all the things I want to do Are eclipsed by the things I have to Each memory I recollect It's just ghost for haunting the next But I'll never be free at last When my mind is chained to the past Can't you see you're suffocating me?
10.
Domino 03:08
You wish you had the time to think The past is in your mind But neglect the present And you'll leave the future behind You were so lost in thought You equated life with pain But then you found God So you'd never have to think again Is there more to life Than just your own? Can we make mistakes? Can we live and learn? Can we love and hate When we fall like dominoes? You'll never reconcile the world With the picture in your head But when you meet you find That it's only you instead We're all slaves to our machines To devices we think we own More connected than ever But never more alone Is there more to life Than just your own? Can we make mistakes? Can we live and learn? Can we love and hate When we fall like dominoes? It's a contradiction to me When all we want to do is grow Just not into these twisted forms That we all learn to loathe Is there more to life Than just your own? Can we make mistakes? Can we live and learn? Can we love and hate When we fall like dominoes?
