Track Name: Sleep
I haven't left the house in a good four days
and I think it's time to get out of this frame of mind
I haven't been feeling right, my chest is hurts and I can't breathe
I think I'll have a cigarette.

Why do I always do this to myself
I'm a mess
and the dog-ends in my drawer are taking up space
If only I could give up now but it's too late
I've already held in too much and I'll just try to blow it out

Blow it out

And I think I've let this all get the better of me
stuck in my thoughts, with nowhere to go
And I wish I had you here by my side, just to talk
and we could have a cigarette

Why do I always do this to myself
I'm a mess
and the dog-ends in my drawer are taking up space.
If only I could give up now but it's too late
I've already held in too much and I'll just try to blow it out.

And I always do this to myself, I can't help that
and the weight on my mind is holding me down
And I just need to work things out with myself
the people that care and the ones that I love
Track Name: Smoking Alone
Smoking alone in my car on a rainy night
Car headlights flash past in a blur of the past and it gives me a fright each time
You cried on my shoulder less than an hour ago and I held you tighter, just less than ten minutes ago
Why won't this haze stop tickling my eyes?
Oh, why won't this haze, stop tickling my eyes?

And I'd die alone
and no one knows
that I'd die alone
because I know

Walking alone down that street on a rainy night
people catch my eye and see that I'm high and it makes me nervous each time
You told me to leave you less than an hour ago,
and I saw you again, just less than ten minutes ago.

And I'd die alone because I know you're not there when I need you most
So I guess I'll die alone
Yeah I'll die alone.
Track Name: Not Good Enough
Take me down to a place where I won’t make you feel bad
Subterranean
Down to the core of it all
Outside of these four walls
I won’t feel sick anymore


I need to get out
I need to get out of this place
I need to get out


I don’t see why you hold me so high in your mind
You think I see everything
But I know that I’m blind
Inside my head I’m scared of everything


I need to get out
I need to get out of this place
I need to get out


And I’ll keep fucking up all the things I love
Like what we were
And what we could be

I need to get out

I’m not good enough for you.

I’m not good enough.


For you.
Track Name: Awful Boys
Sometimes I wonder if you go out
When you're caught up thinking about
If he loves you or not
An ash tray sits on your chest
cigarette burns for the shape of a heart on your breast

Sometimes I wonder if you go out
Sometimes I wonder if it's for the best
Take all your writing and light the flame
watch all your dreams as they drift away

Walk up to him so slowly
let the drink do the talking
brush his hair with your hand
he looks at you slyly
tells you to fuck off and walks away instead

Sometimes you wonder why you go out
Sometimes you wonder if it's for the best

Take all your writing and light the flame
watch all your dreams as they drift away

Take all your writing
and light the flame
watch all your dreams as they drift away

Stay at home, stay alone
Stay away from the boys

Block out the noise, the awful noise
Remember, those awful boys.
Track Name: Gardeners
I'll tell you what I really want to say
But it won't be what you want to hear
I've heard something that has scratched at my ear
it ripped a hole and I wish I was deaf

But I can't escape
No I can't escape

The things that you left haven't moved
and I wish that they didn't burn my eyes and my mind
every time that I looked

But I can't escape
Can't bring myself to move them

Because the things that you left haven't moved
and I wish that they didn't burn my eyes and my mind
every time that I looked

Because the memories don't haunt me
it's the things that I did
and the tears that fell from your eyes

And I really fucked up.

Why the fuck did I do that
it wasn't mine to tell them.
