Track Name: I Should Have Kept Sleeping
we were lying together when you just gave up
no more time for life, you had had enough
you had just woke up in another place
i had just woke up to your blood red face

you took a walk that we'd always said we'd take
i put my foot on that bridge but it would always shake
i can't believe you'd stare into the devil's face
just so you could be free from this wretched place

i sat on a hill and watched cars pass by
underneath a tree, and i asked myself
why would she do it, and why this way?
and my questions were picked up by wind and found their way into the fray

that night your mother called to ask about you
"is she really gone, is it all true?"
we wore black and white, and we stood in a line
we wore black and white together, we cried
Track Name: Funeral
its just like a birthday
all your friends are here
they're singing you a song
but there's no three cheers

we build a house of laughter
and your pet wolf blows it down
we built a home together
and god burned it to the ground

have a nice life down there
i hear its warm this ktime of year
i know i'll miss you
but you didn't like it here

or you could come back to me
get out of that urn
sit under our tree
please just return
i just want to die
with you by my side
just give me that
just give me that
it can't be that hard
to go change the past
i'm sure she'll come back
how long could this last?
you're not really dead
its just in my head
you're not really dead
you're not really dead
you're not really dead
you're not fucking dead
Track Name: The Last Thing You Ever Said
i believe
in afterlife
just like you

the other side
i'll see you there
soon enough

how could i have known?

i did
Track Name: Shades of Grey
i start my day
wrapped in shades of grey

you slipped away
without me there
you slipped away
you just don't care
you slipped away
you slipped away
you slipped away

and i just can't keep hold of you
and i just have to push on through
and all i have is memories
sweet memories
sweet memories

i start my day
in search of something good

i think of you
i don't know why
i think of you
how hard i've tried
i think of you
i think of you
i think of you

and you just sit there in the ground
no moon, no sun, no wind, no sound
dirt fills your eyes but you don't care
and one day i will join you there

one day, i swear
i'll join you there
i'll join you there

i'll join you there

i'll join you there

i'll join you there
Track Name: Extra
do yourself a favour
walk away
she's trouble

do yourself a favour
forget her face

you
won't be seeing it
much more

the nights aren't getting colder
you're just strung out

each day you're getting older
it won't rub out

you
won't forget that face
anytime soon

you drink yourself to death
every night

you want to make her proud
but you just can't

you
have a while to go
just yet

so walk away

this time
Track Name: Whiskey
she's gone
forever

let's take a drink of whiskey
i bought it from the liquor store
it only cost me fifty
i can afford it, even more
cause first i get the money
and then i get the women too
i swear i drink it for the taste
i swear its not just for

the feeling
the feeling
the feeling
the feeling

let's sit and wait for your damn bus
it comes every hour or so
i don't know what else to say
i don't know how to make you go
so let's just sit and drink more
i bought it from the liquor store
i swear i drink it for the taste
i swear it's not just for

the feeling
the feeling
the feeling
the feeling

she's gone
forever

let's take a walk through my backyard
you always liked to hang around
how could you
you fucking
cunt
we only wanted to laugh
we only wanted to live
i swear i drink it for the taste
i swear it's not just to

forget
forget
forget
forget
forget
forget
forget
forget
Track Name: Coughing Up Blood
i hate this chord progression
but i'm a lazy fucking cunt
i haven't climbed the hill
cause i know i'm fucked
and always will

let's disappear
like every year
to a place that
no one knows

let's go again
just one more time
i've never felt this great
in my life

the only reason that i'm scared of night
is no one kills themselves when its bright
how can we smile so much
as we tell each other "i'm dead inside"
"dead inside"

let's disappear
like every year
to a place that
no one knows

let's go again
just one more time
i've never felt this great
in my life

let's disappear
like every year
to a place that
no one knows

i don't want to
i just have to
i know it kills me
that's what you do

i'm not happy
unless i'm dying
i'm not happy
i'm not happy

i don't want to
i just have to
i know it kills me
i don't mind

i know it kills me
i don't care
i know it kills me
but i like it
but i like it

lets go again
just one more time
i've never felt this great
in my life
Track Name: Old Faces
faces
that i can't see
voices
that i can't hear

places
that i can't go
people
i can't look in the eye
the eye

memories
that i can't stand
feelings
that won't go away

nights
that i won't see
air
that i won't breathe
breathe
Track Name: Liar Liar
you are
such a
liar liar

you've got
your
pants on fire

a time to be born
a time to die
a time to kill
and a time to heal
a time to weep
and a time to laugh
a time to mourn
and a time to dance
a time for the reckless
the old and the sick
a time to be
born again

you are

you've got
your
pants on fire

a time to be born
a time to die
a time to kill
and a time to heal
a time to weep
and a time to laugh
a time to mourn
and a time to dance
a time for the reckless
the old and the sick
a time to be
born again
Track Name: Abide With Me
its been a year, and there's no sign of change
your ghost still haunts me, i can't speak your name
all i want is to no longer weep
not that much longer 'til i fall asleep

swift to its close ebbs out life's little day
earths joys grow dim, it's glories pass away
change and decay in all around i see
o, thou who changes not, abide with me
Track Name: A Memory
we sat
in the dark
it was cold and wet in that park

couldn't see
for a mile
no light at the end of this tunnel

no way
out of this
we're fucked and we damn well know it

but we try
out luck
i'm in love but i'm not gonna show it

then i saw you in that light
your eyes shone true and bright
your hair, your nose, your smile
why don't we sit here for a while?

we sat
in that park
it was cold and wet and dark

couldn't see
for a mile
but you're my angel with the shining red smile

no way
this'll turn out good
i'm in love but i'm not gonna show it

but we try
our luck
i'm in love but i'm not gonna show it
i'm in love but i'm not gonna show it

then i saw those city lights
yellow green and white
and the red of cars
they were our own little stars

that reflected in your eyes
and at the speed of light
my soul ran with them too
there's no stopping me 'til i'm with you

orange trees blurred the road as we went down the street
when you lay your head on my arm i was completely
in love with life and in love with you
and i didn't know what i was gonna do
people swarmed like smoke slowly onto the bus
took their place, hid their face, didn't take note of us
i sat there thinking back to our dream
as we sat next to that pitch black stream
and i held you like a glass of coke
filled to the top, so you wouldn't choke
on your words, just in case you turned to me to say

i loved
that day
