Track Name: Fixer
Aint it funny the harder that we try, to make things better, it just only makes things worse and that’s how it goes.
Aint it crazy, test your mental patience, wanna start it but just can’t get it to work, and that’s when it all falls apart.
Sometimes I’m just so overwhelmed, cause maybe I can’t fix it myself.
Aint it funny like a kick to the skull, aint it funny like you just broke all your bones, and that’s how it goes.
Aint it draining little emotional vampire, aint it draining like the whole worlds gone to hell, I just say oh well.
Sometimes I’m just so overwhelmed, cause maybe I can’t fix myself.
Track Name: You and I
Back in love as you're walking away
and i thought bout all the times i had nothing to say
and it was such a crime that we never really got it
You and I

Back in love as you're walking away and i thought
for 15 years just to think the same and i thought
bout all the times that we never really got it
You and I

Back in love as you're walking away and there is
8 billion people(almost) who don't know your name
and i thought bout all the times that we never really got it
You and I

Back in love as you're walking away and i thought
for 15 years just to think the same and i thought
bout all the times that we never really got it
You and I
Track Name: Important Things
Hearts break everyday, but i know its not important
if you make mistakes and i know its not important
if its miles away and i know it's not important
if i feel this way, yeah i know it's not important to ya.

Are we dumb enough to keep walking out again
Are we dumb enought o keep walking back again
Have we been holding on too long
Have we been holding on too long,
and i know it's not important to ya
i know its not important

Its the same in everything, but i know it's not important
if you feel nothing and i know it's not important
the walls are closing in, and i know it's not important
if you lose or win, yeah i know it's not important to ya.

Are we dumb enough to keep walking out again
Are we dumb enought o keep walking back again
Have we been holding on too long
Have we been holding on too long,
and i know it's not important to ya
i know its not important
Track Name: Keep Making
If you stare too hard, you could go blind
Sometimes i feel like I'm losing sight
Cause i been waiting so long
for some happiness to come along

And i keep making the same mistakes
Yeah i keep making the same mistakes
I keep making the same mistakes
and it's always my fault

If you think too hard you could confuse yourself
Sometimes it feels like im in hell
And all the time i feel alright
but i guess sometimes that is a lie.

And i keep making the same mistakes
Yeah i keep making the same mistakes
I keep making the same mistakes
and it's always my fault

And you say...'never again'
And you say it happens again and again
and you say...'never again'
and you say it happenes again and again
always keep repeating, always keep repeating

That i keep making the same mistakes...
Track Name: The Wilderness Years
All the time waiting for a break
Had about as much as you could take

Don't be mad, don't be bitter, dont be sad

I know that you found it hard sometimes
Everything you loved was on the line

Don't be mad, don't be bitter
Cause i hope that some good will come of this
Yeah i hope that some good will come of this
So don't be mad, don't be bitter, don't be sad.

Maybe it was always gonna break
Had about as much as you could take
Don't be mad, don't be bitter

Cause i hope that some good will come of this
Yeah i hope that some good will come of this

So don't be mad, don't be bitter
Track Name: Mildlife
There's a door on the 2nd floor
All your dreams in the dresser drawer of our life.
As i sat in the other room, i thought "oh my god it happened way too soon"
Our lives, cut down to size.

There must be something else

And everything we have is 2nd hand
And i think i'll never understand anything
As i sat in the waiting room, i thought "oh my god it happened way too soon"
Our lives, cut down to size

There must be something else

Hell is just a comprimise when there is nothing to survive
in our lives, our allies.

There must be something else.

Is it all a waste of time, is there no comprimise

there must be something else.
Track Name: Goodnight Sleepwalker
I have these thoughts in my head but i don't know how to use them
Just like alcohol and friends, you don't need them anymore
And these things, they hover around your head.
And these things, they climb into your bed and give you something to dream about.

Goodnight sleepwalker
Nothings waking you up
Tomorrows a new day
And if all else fails we can just go back to bed again.

I notice body language but don't know how to read it
just ike religion and friends, you don't need them anymore
And these things, they fuckin drill into your head
And these things, they climb into your bed and give you something to dream about.

Goodnight sleepwalker
Nothings waking you up
Tomorrows a new day
And if all else fails we can just go back to bed again.

And you're dreamin...
Of something you never get sick of
Of something you won't grow out of
Something you never get tired of.
Track Name: Too Far Gone
Sick of wasting all my time the days all seem so long
sick of waiting for a change while everything goes wrong
and it's too far gone, thats all i know

Sick of blaming circumstances always complicate
Sick of waiting for a sign it always comes, it comes too late
And it's too far gone

So drag me down, pull me under, watch me falter
I know i'm not the only one
yeah now i know, where it's going
Its too far gone

Any day now everything will surely go my way
But it's too far gone

So drag me down, pull me under, watch me falter
I know I'm not the only one
Yeah now i know where it's going
It's too far gone
Track Name: Living Again
I saw a cloud shaped like a loveheart
I heard some devastating news
I hope you never knew
I hope you never knew.

I saw a smile cover the distance
I had a dream that dreams come true
In copper blue and you.

And the dust from a shooting star
Covered everything
It covers everything
Just like you're living again

I was so scared i would remember
I was so scared I would forget
But now i think i know

That all the dust from a shooting star
falls to feel like you
oh to feel brand new
Just like You're living again.
Track Name: The Shelf
You got nothing but the world to gain
Nothnig to lose but these shackles and chains
You got nothing but the world to gain
Nothing to lose but a whole lot of pain

And all your dreams left on the shelf
All your dreams left on the shelf
All your dreams left on the shelf
And only you can reach.

You got nothing but the world to gain
Nothnig to lose but these shackles and chains
You got nothing but the world to gain
Nothing to lose but a whole lot of pain

And all your dreams left on the shelf
All your dreams left on the shelf
All your dreams left on the shelf
And only you can reach.

And i wanted to believe that I was good enough
I wanted to believe that i was strong enough
to call you up and say...

You got nothing but the world to gain
Nothing to lose but these shackles and chains.
Track Name: The Wine Dark Sea
Brightly shining signaling me
Brighlty shining on the wine dark sea
All it seems was just a beautiful dream
Sometimes its easier to do it the hard way.

Covered in darkness calling for you
Under the covers where you dream for two
All the spoils of World War You
Sometimes it's easier to do it the hard way.

You count your footsteps back to the start
I'm counting on you not to fall apart
Effortlessly you break my heart
Sometimes it's easier to do it the hard way.
