Track Name: It's Like Suicide But It Takes 80 Years
it's 3 in the morning and i can't sleep
but it doesn't matter because all week
i haven't done a single thing
but play guitar and try to sing
my songs

i don't need a job cause i've been fed
so i'll just play my games instead
i don't need friends cause it's been said
that either way we all
end up dead

i don't need to love another day
but if i did they'd run away
all that's left are my damn songs
but when i sing they come out wrong

cause everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart

if what i want is happiness
why should i be so depressed
if i what i want is cash and gold
why should i have to be told

that everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart

one day i am gonna die
and so will all the starry skies
and so will cal and all those guys
and so i guess that that is why

everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart
everything around me is falling apart...
Track Name: Nowadays
these days
i feel stranger
i feel old and grey
and i miss the way i felt when you were here

these days
i could hold you
if you want me to
i could break the ties that hold us to these lives

these days
i feel colder
i am so afraid
and i miss the way i felt when you were here
entwined within my hands i fear
i'm losing sense of who i am

please stay
i could hold you
if you want me to
i could break the ties that hold us to these lives
we don't believe in can't you see
it's all for nothing anyway
Track Name: We Must Imagine Sisyphus Is An Idiot That Doesn't Know About Entropy
*stupid fucking existential rambling*
Track Name: Late-Night Radio on 191.1FM
*even more existential rambling, with more edge*
Track Name: Drunk Facebook Messages To An Old Friend
drunk again
my oldest friend
its getting hard to breathe
its getting hard to be at all

standing
on the window sill
i can't see why
i should still be alive

drunk again
my oldest friend
its getting hard to breathe
its getting hard to be at all
be at all

(i should still be alive)
Track Name: Consolation III (feat. Lucy Dron)
i'm going back to a time when i was young
(sleep now and dream of all the)
i'm going back and i want you to come
(things you're gonna be when you get back)
down by a river we'll sit and live and love
(i swear it's gonna be alright)
down by a river we'll curse the sky above

i'll take you back to that time at our old place
(sleep now and rest your weary head)
i'll take you back to the time i held your face
(i swear i don't want to be dead)
down by the river how we lay and laughed and cried
(now that you're hear by my side)
down by the river how you said you want to die

but i'm making the same mistakes i made
and i can't find anything i crave
but you don't have to worry anymore

but god takes whatever he wants to take
but we make whatever we want to make
but we're gonna find a way, i know

i'm going back to a time when we were old
(wake up and think back to the)
i'm going back to a time that isn't told
(things you did when you were still quite young)
up on the hill we'll watch as the skies burn
(i swear it's gonna be alright)
up on a hill we'll try our best to learn

that nothing matters and there's freedom in that fact
(death paints a shadow in my mind)
that nothing matters and although the sky is black
(no-one sees they're all so blind)
we've got each other, and isn't that enough?
isn't that enough?
isn't that enough?
Track Name: Goodbye
i won't ask you to stay
i know you have to go
i don't mind either way
i'm used to being alone

i won't ask you stay
i know you have to go
but why this way?
i guess we'll never fucking know. jesus christ. why. just why?
Track Name: What can you ask for except some good friends and some whisky? (feat. Mallan and Bosbo)
"woops"
*laugh*
"man that was fucking beautiful"
"holy shit. am i even alive?"
"that was beautiful. that was so amazing!"
