Thank you to our friends and family, bands we've played with and people who have watched.

Thank you to Sullivan Heywood for playing Trumpet on Truth Is, we threw you in the deep end but you helped us make something really special.

Thank you to Imarney McDonnell for singing on Truth Is, you pulled through when no one else did.

And thank you to Dave at The Vault Studio, it's been a wild ride to say the least, but we got there in the end.

Track Name: Mixed Metaphors
My life is a series of bad anecdotes, mixed metaphors and poorly thought through jokes
I wish I had listened when it all mattered most
So maybe I could catch the right train home
And not be stuck in the middle of somewhere I don't know.

None of these street signs seem familiar
Have I just never paid attention

I can't be your hero, but I can be your friend

And now I'm sitting on the train all alone
The only thing left in my mouth is your name
The only thing left in my head is your face
The things you said and the way you looked at me

I can't be your hero, but I can be your friend

My life is a series of bad anecdotes, mixed metaphors and poorly thought through jokes

I can't be your hero, but I can be your friend
Track Name: Welcome
Why do you neglect
The people who really need you most
Their homes have broken

These people have better hearts
Than you will ever know
You've quickly shut them out

So I say welcome
Welcome to my home
Together our voices grow louder
Into beautiful harmonies

Why do you try
To justify your reasoning
You racist, sexist fuck
Playing god with other humans

It's not right
No it's not right
To prioritise agendas over human lives
It's not right
It's not right

So I say welcome
Welcome to my home
Together our voices grow louder
Into beautiful harmonies

Stop pretending that everything's alright
It's not
People are suffering
Stop pretending
Just be accepting

So we can say welcome
Welcome to our home
Together our voices grow louder
Into beautiful harmonies

So we say welcome
Track Name: Last Winter
The smell of stale beer
And cigarettes has been stuck to my shirt and jeans
Since last winter

And the taste of your lips
Will be stuck to my mouth
For much longer than I'll ever
Keep track of

So when you think about where you are and where you want to be will you
Think of me and all that we could have been
And you take one step forward and two steps backwards
And you wonder why you haven't gotten anywhere in months

The smell of stale beer
And cigarettes won't be stuck to my shirt and jeans
For much longer

And the taste of your lips
Won't be stuck to my mouth
For much longer
Oh of that I am certain

So when you think about where you are and where you want to be will you
Think of me and all that we could have been
And you take one step forward and two steps backwards
And you wonder why you haven't gotten anywhere in months

And you take one step forward and two steps backwards
And you wonder why you haven't gotten anywhere in months
Track Name: Trash
Who needs a view like this when I
Have you to look at
Lips like horizons
Mine like the skies
So when we kiss
It feels so meaningful
It feels so beautiful

And when you look at me like that

It makes me wish I had more to offer you
Than just my flesh and bones

Who needs to feel shit like this
When I have things to live for
My friends and family
People that I love
And when we laugh
It feels so meaningful
It feels so beautiful

And when they look at me like that

It makes me wish I had more to offer them
Than just my flesh and bones

Cause' I'm a piece of trash
And you're not
I'm a piece of trash

Fuck
Track Name: Truth Is
You'll be happy to know I've started killing myself again
And I don't care

You'll be happy to know this time it's different
I know it is

I'm so happy to know that there's life outside the shit that I
Feel inside


Because I can feel myself slipping again
Oh I can feel myself falling in
To that pit again
Won't you hold out your hands for me

You'll be angry to know I've fallen in love again
And you're gonna call me stupid
I know you will
I know you're wrong

I'm so happy to know that I can finally try to repair all of my wounds
But I'm scared

Because I can feel myself slipping again
Oh I can feel myself falling in
To that pit again
Won't you hold out your hands for me

Truth is
I don't understand
Half of anything anyway
Truth is
I don't think that you do either

Because I can feel myself slipping again
Oh I can feel myself falling in
To that pit again
Won't you hold out your hands for me

Truth is
I don't understand anything
Truth is
You don't either
