Track Name: I'll Be Fine
The taste of your betrayal's sitting right between my lips
I've tried to speak my mind but it's tainted with your tricks
What happened to sticking by the blood that runs so thick?
What happened to 'I love you'?
Guess it's only when it suits you

I'm not here for your revenge
You can't use me to claim success
I know, I know I'll be fine
Without, without by my side
So cut the ties and say goodbye
You burned the bridge I built and now,
I know, I know I'll be fine
Without you by my side

Walking hand in hand with ghosts that I've already met
Is a solid sign we've made no progress on past mistakes
Can you try screaming softly but not straight in my ear
Cause it's hard to swallow all this shit when your voice is all I hear
I wasn't scared of dying but with you I cheated death
Now you're the worst part of the memories
But the best part of the mess

I'm not here for your revenge
You can't use me to claim success
I know, I know I'll be fine
Without, without by my side
So cut the ties and say goodbye
You burned the bridge I built and now,
I know, I know I'll be fine
Without you by my side

Side by side we once walked
But now you're cutting corners
Better hope your fingers were crossed
Cause now you took a wrong turn

So let me down in the easiest way
You know how I'm fragile and frail
And though feelings are stale
I still love you the way I was born to
The way I was supposed to do now
No I'll never know
I'll never know
Where you've gone
Where you've been
How you'll love me again

Don't take me down
Take me with you
I've never felt this way
Felt so misused
Take me down
Take me with you
I've never felt this way
So used
Track Name: Crazy, Little Heart Like Mine
I am
Chasing lucid dreams
Due to nightmares
Being my cold, hard reality
For too long
I caught the current the wrong way
But changed my mind
Got it reframed
Now the new picture’s here to stay

So what did you expect from spitting venom for effect?

Eat your own ears and swallow your pride
You’ve got no business messing with a heart like mine
Eat your own ears and swallow your pride
I dare you to try taking on a crazy, little heart like mine

We didn’t speak in the same tongue
Your hands did all the talking
You were a master of mystery, and of the dishonest
We didn’t try to talk things over
Self-deprecation’s all you taught
Now of you I’m clean and sober
And I’m leading out the dark

So what did you expect from spitting venom for effect?

Eat your own ears and swallow your pride
You’ve got no business messing with a heart like mine
Eat your own ears and swallow your pride
I dare you to try taking on a crazy, little heart like mine

Chasing
Consequence
From living in
Constant regret
Pulled the trigger
On the timer we’re ticking
Off lists so outdated
From memories so jaded now

Eat your own ears and swallow your pride
You’ve got no business messing with a heart like mine
Eat your own ears and swallow your pride
I dare you to try taking on a crazy, little heart like mine
Track Name: Empathy
My face is half out, half in the light
It's covered by the dark parts of my mind
Can't see as well as I would like
But maybe there's some beauty in feeling so blind

It kills to show that my brain has no boundaries
So take it slow, 'cause my mind's become haunted

I'm not one for self-pity
I'm swimming in sadness
Got stuck in the shadows
I know you won't understand
But try and understand
Drown me in empathy

I've got my conscience pitching tents
On either side of my own head
They're digging holes into my chest
They're trying to fill the space so I'll feel less
I’m soaked white noise all the time
A sound of silence I can’t hide
I keep a close eye on what’s mine
If I lose anymore of me I’ll cross off my last lifeline

I'm not one for self-pity
I'm swimming in sadness
Got stuck in the shadows
I know you won't understand
But try and understand
Drown me in empathy

I gave it time, but there's no spine left in me
I've got control of controlling the mystery
It kills to show that my brain has no boundaries
So take it slow, 'cause my mind's become haunted
I'm not one for self-pity
I'm swimming in sadness
Got stuck in the shadows
I know you won't understand
But try and understand
Drown me in empathy
Track Name: Method in the Madness
So what’s your plans now instead?
To waste and die of regret?
The stars aren’t looking quite so clear.
We welcomed you with open arms,
You picked at wounds, turned them to scars.
How did you expect to heal?

We took chances, you won't change
So we'll catch the stars while you keep at that losing game

Swore on second chances
But you never gave us one to begin with
(One to begin with)
Criticised our sorry state of minds
But there's method in our madness
You can't predict

Are you caught up?
Catching that fake high?
Are you lost?
Losing your own fucking mind?

We'll move forward and still you stay
So we'll move the mountains while you hit repeat never play

Swore on second chances
But you never gave us one to begin with
(One to begin with)
Criticised our sorry state of minds
But there's method in our madness
You can't predict

Where we're going
What comes next
I'd place thousands on this bet
Sat so long
By the wishing well
Screaming dreams
I hope come true so you can't forget

You can't forget
We're engrained on your head
We'll stain the palms of your hands

Swore on second chances
But you never gave us one to begin with
(One to begin with)
Criticised our sorry state of minds
But there's method in our madness
You can't predict
Swore on second chances
But you never gave us one to begin with
(One to begin with)
Criticised our sorry state of minds
But there's method in our madness
You can't predict
Track Name: For You and I Are Past Our Dancing Days
Should I stay or should I go?
I'm intoxicated by the things I'm feeling but I'm heading for the door
And I'm a sloppy drunk caught in a moment I can't judge
But someone pass the tonic so I can drown to take control of this

Your eyes they saw a different side of me
But what I thought was real is now a tainted memory

And I'm counting down the moments until I am left alone
'Cause I'm done with being used to fill the hole that's in your soul
I've ran the race a million times, but never passed the finish line
I'm stuck, starstruck by you
So starstruck by you

Scraped past the groundwork that I lay
I never made it over
To the greener side I paved
Since you caught me sober
Still catching glitches in my vision
But you'll revel in your glory, shine your trophy
My tears won’t polish it no more

I am counting down the moments until I am left alone
'Cause I'm done with being used to fill the hole that's in your soul
I've ran the race a million times, but never passed the finish line
I'm stuck, starstruck by you
So starstruck by you

A broken candle caught the burn
Lit at both ends, we're chasing time
Whilst spitting venom from our tongues
And claimed it qualified as love
For you and I are past our dancing days
Our tired feet will take the weight
Whilst we dance our separate ways

I am counting down the moments until I am left alone
'Cause I'm done with being used to fill the hole that's in your soul
I've ran the race a million times, but never passed the finish line
I'm stuck, starstruck by you
So starstruck by you

Were all I wanted
All I needed
Now you’re everything I hate
Were all I wanted
All I needed
Now we’re past our dancing days
Track Name: The Chaos Is All So Beautiful
I let myself down
Got lost in my own town
Didn't recognise the mess in the mirror
But thought I had it figured out
It's been three years of jumping the cracks on the street
But now the chaos is all so beautiful to me

And I swore to a God
I don't believe in
Cause I was desperate for some reasons
Why you did, what you did to me

Buried my head in the sand
Instead of taking my own hand
Watched them rip me up
And spit me out again
But now the chaos is all so beautiful to me

Seven years is all it takes
For my skin to rid itself
Of it's past mistakes
And though my skin sheds old heartaches
I emerge from debris left from the mess I used to make

But now the chaos is all so beautiful to me
But now the chaos is all so beautiful to me

Can't hold me down
Can't show me how I'm mean to be
Can't hold me down
Won't wait around
The future's here
