Track Name: Note To Self
I’m rekindling old romance
With sobriety
Ending these relationships
The burden weighs so heavily
Please don’t blame yourself
It’s definitely me.
The fear,
The dread,
The crippling anxiety.
It’ll be the death of me.

It’s time to give it up,
It’s been twenty-something years.
Financially bankrupt,
Emotionally overwhelmed.
Maybe I’m chasing my tail
Or running round in circles.
Well, this isn’t the first time
I’ve smashed my face into this wall.

It’s safe to say
If we did this everyday
We’d kill ourselves along the way
Forget it all.
It’s safe to say
If we did this everyday
We’d miss our chance to get away
And blow it all.

I’ve screamed it all before
Is this time just like last time?
More broken promises
I’m still picking up the pieces
Please don’t blame yourself,
It’s definitely me.
The fear,
The dread,
The crippling anxiety

It’s safe to say
If we did this everyday
We’d kill ourselves along the way
Forget it all.
It’s safe to say
If we did this everyday
We’d miss our chance to get away
And blow it all.
Track Name: This Is Not A Joke
It’s cold outside and it’s raining hellfire
Can you see the fear in those eyes?
Step back inside, enjoy your shelter
Have you seen the mess out there?
They’re all running scared
Fuelled by failure
Desperation’s taking hold
We’re the only one’s who know
This is not a joke.

This is a broken-hearted desperate attempt
To try and make some sense of a world
So full of hate and misery
Yet it’s all “me, me, me, me, me!”
I swear my heart, it fucking bleeds
When I’m alone.

Step back in time
Do you remember?
We dared to dream back then
Step back inside
Enjoy your shelter
Desperation’s taken hold
We’re the only ones who know
This is not a joke.

This is a broken-hearted desperate attempt
To try and make some sense of a world
So full of hate and misery
Yet it’s all “me, me, me, me, me!”
I swear my heart, it fucking bleeds
When I’m alone.

This is a broken-hearted desperate attempt
To try and make some sense of a world
So full of hate and misery
Yet it’s all “me, me, me, me, me!”
I swear my heart,
It fucking bleeds.
Track Name: The Fear
Home can’t wait to have you here
Pull up a chair
I’ll explain the fear to you
It’s when everything you think you know
Disappears into a great black hole of hope

We don’t always have to be right
It’s okay to lose a fight
It’s okay to say you’re scared
Even the best can be under-prepared.

Making plans to face our fears
I’ve been playing this chord for almost fifteen years
And I’ve still got hope
I can’t let it float into a big black hole of doubt.

We don’t always have to be right
It’s okay to lose a fight
It’s okay to say you’re scared
Even the best can be under-prepared.

If we lose the drive, we’re driving home
I don’t know if there’s any place I can go
“No place like home”
Or is home just some place out on the road?

We don’t always have to be right
It’s okay to lose a fight
It’s okay to say you’re scared
Even the best can be under-prepared.

If home can’t wait to have you’re here
Pull up a chair,
I’ll explain the fear to you
It’s when every dream you’ve ever known
Disappears into a big black hole of hope.

We don’t always have to be right
It’s okay to lose a fight
It’s okay to say you’re scared
Even the best can be under-prepared.

We will drive forever
We will drive forever
Seems we’re never going home.
Track Name: Heads Down, Thumbs Up
All the kids are burning down
Their neighbours to the ground.
Riots are prime time TV.
The bricks and rocks and the petrol bombs
Are how they get their point across,
A point no-one can see.

They feel they've been left behind,
They feel like they just can't find
Their place in "big society".
Maybe it's the unemployment,
The lack of chances,
No role models,
No shortage of experts telling me.
Then who will you believe?

United in name
Got nothing to show.
This Kingdom's fucked,
Light the fuse and watch it blow.
Lose lips sink ships,
We're all going to drown.
Bottoms up, c'est la vie,
It's onwards and down.

We need to start again
Educate, engage our brains
There's more to life than being alive.
Next time it could be you
Watching your neighbourhood
Burn down before your fucking eyes.
Then who will you despise?

United in name
Got nothing to show.
This Kingdom's fucked,
Light the fuse and watch it blow.
Lose lips sink ships,
We're all going to drown.
Bottoms up, c'est la vie,
It's onwards and down.
Track Name: Subtle, Mate...
All along I knew
The things that we'd go through
But I never thought it'd come to this

It took some time
To find the time
To finally show you how I feel
But I feel it's too late

The letter that I sent
Was exactly what I meant
I regret what I said but I'm not sorry

If I'd known what I know now
I'd have gotten away somehow
But you're still far away from me
If I'd known what i know now
I'd have gotten away somehow
But you're still far from where I wanna be

The letter that I sent
Was exactly what I meant
I regret what I said but I'm not sorry.

I’m not sorry now, no.
