100 Times 03:12
There’s no one left inside It’s just that everyone is breathing and alive How can you blame yourself It’s Just another situation you can’t help At least we made it out I’ve been trying not to die here for two hours It seems pretty clear That is not safe here I never wanted you to drive I must’ve said 100 times But you do things in your own way And if it suits you then okay How did you not see her there If not for us then she’d be dead I wish there was a better way To say it but it’s time to change Although I played my part It’s time you had a look at yourself from the start Before you try to blame Someone else for all the stupid things you say At least we made it out I’ve been trying not to die here for two hours It seems pretty clear That it is not safe here This can’t be the way I die So let’s all drink to feel alive I never wanted you to drive I must’ve said 100 times Let’s all drink to feel alive

Far From You 02:41
Well I think I thought about it once or twice I can never find my things, And I know you’re full of lies And in the past few months or just not making sense With all of your shit I just couldn’t care less And I think, I think you’ve got a little too much to say cause when you speak to rather look the other way If you could find another reason to be friends I’d hope that you would keep it to yourself instead If I could only move It would be so far from you You see the writings on the wall I haven’t got too far to fall Now I’d like to think you would ignore my calls I wish you would just count me out And knock to the floor and leave me lying there With nothing else to say I’d look the other way It just don’t feel the same And I think, I think you’ve got a little too much to say cause when you speak I’d rather look the other way If you could find another reason to be friends I’d hope that you would keep it to yourself instead If I could only move It would be so far from you You see the writings on the wall I haven’t got too far to fall

Old News 02:24
Although you never can see us We’re standing right here in front of you And the weight of my problems Seems to be all because of you And I’m not gonna hide Behind the issues that are not mine You can say what you like I’ll pack up all of my things and I’ll move aside It’s all just old news Doesn’t sit with my attitude When the ashtray is filling up Drink the poison from your cup It took me so long to see it The things that you lied about I’ll take my chances alone Cos I’ll still have all of my friends as I let you go You don’t have to walk alone Where you’re from You don’t have to go along Where I’m from I’ve always done it on my own But now I’m done It just can’t stay like this for long It’s all just old news Doesn’t sit with my attitude When the ashtray is filling up Drink the poison from your cup It’s all just old news Doesn’t sit with my attitude When the ashtray is filling up Drink the poison from your cup

Four Walls 04:07
I’ve lost, I’ve gained The same people, the same names I can’t enjoy, the same things that you can I can’t, expect the same values That I crave Instead, of hiding I’ll force myself to sing I lost my trust in the mirror How I wish that I could get thinner I smoke so I can catch cancer If I could I’d give you the answer Four walls, one ceiling That’s what’s inked in my name It’s all in what you say Your mind can’t stay the same For all you’ve done for me This can’t be all you seek
5.
Let’s step outside That’s what one said to the other tonight I’m gonna paint the ground red with your blood and cripple your teeth I’m not going to back down I’m not going No I cannot hide that I was born to a small town life But that doesn’t make me an arsehole at least I try I’m not going to back down I’m not going to turn around Familiar faces don’t bother me too much Despite all the bad points there’s people here I can trust Despite all the shit things there’s people here that I love I won’t lie About it anymore I’ll live my life The way I did before The lights are on So let yourself back in And I’ll be here

Sometime Saturday night And that shirt was looking fine We hung out in the centre of the room We had ten thousand hugs And we all took part in drugs And in twelve months we’ll do it all again. Drink on, drink on before the lot is gone Fuck your job let’s stay on holidays Drink on, drink on the government can’t own us everyday We drank and watched the tunes And Paper Arms broke hearts all night They called last drinks at sometime around three But then it was goodbye and I will see you all next time There was none of us that wanted it to end Drink on, drink on before the lot is gone Fuck your job let’s stay on holidays Drink on, drink on the government can’t own us every day Drink on, drink on you know we won’t live long But fuck it all, let’s do it anyway

Forever 02:33
Now my body aches And my voice it shakes I haven’t checked the time In quite a while It seems I’ve seen it all That’s what I tell myself I’ve made mistakes before But you can’t blame me forever No you can’t blame me forever And I can’t explain it ever So I guess it means forever Now there’s a time and place To speak your mind again Stand back and read the letter Stand back and read the letter You can’t blame me forever Stand back and read the letter You can’t blame me forever you can’t blame me forever And I can’t explain it ever So I guess it means forever

I’m on the outside, of all these old lines I’ve found a new scene, now I can’t complain Can you make sense of, all of these new drugs I’m gonna try this out, wish me luck as I go I like the city views and when it’s me and you, you can’t buy this I wish this day could live on top of everything you can’t buy this Can’t be another way to sell Must be another way to sell it Is this the only way to sell it? Can’t be another way to sell it I like the city views and when it’s me and you, you can’t buy this I like the city views and when it’s me and you, you can’t buy this I wish this day could live on top of everything you can’t buy this Is this the only way to sell it?

Tired 02:39
When I wanted to take everything from you All I needed was time and a drink or two What’s the reason for fucking up life this time? Just a process that I’m not willing to try Now the paint it begins to peel And my skin doesn’t seem to heal From the poison that came from you It’s a poison I just can’t undo I’m just too tired for this My insides burn and a burn and they sting I can’t find refuge inside my head I don’t see too many ways out of it When did I ever change my mind at all Never go back in time cause there’s just no time You can’t fix it you’ll never be back with us You’ll die lonely and always be held at fault Now the paint it begins to peel And my skin doesn’t seem to heal From the poison that came from you It’s a poison I just can’t undo You can’t run from this you can’t hide It will come back and haunt you in time I’m just too tired for this When I wanted to take everything from you All I needed was time and a drink or two What’s the reason for fucking up life this time just a process that I’m not willing to try

All these streets seem to burn in my brain like disease I’d like to leave but where the fuck else is there to be? Maybe the city where everyone seems to hate their space I’d like to be in an old school town Where the payphones are still around I’d like to taste the food from the other side Where the grass is greener and has more life And the ladies seem thinner the bigger the car they drive I’d like to think that I’m not alone for just wanting to stay home Hide all your secrets and just don’t ever let them out Take care of your reasons and just don’t ever think that no one will find you out Take all, take what you like For once it’s not my fault Just take all the time that you want I’ll leave the back door wide open You can come back when you like I won’t be too far behind you Hide all your secrets and just don’t ever let them out Take care of your reasons and just don’t ever think that no one will find you out Take you home where you won’t have to feel so lost And then no one can judge us for anything that we’ve done
