Track Name: Die Young, Die Happy
DIE YOUNG, DIE HAPPY
Staring at this wall covered in footprints from all my recent encouters i struggle to remember
Here's a photowall and an ode for all of my ex-lovers and this band of brothers i've found
Somewhere above the underground in this 3 night a week stretch of crowds
A country town dressed up like a city where I'll die young and I'll die happy

It's so hard when it's so easy to find fail in family
It's so hard when it's so easy to find fail in family

Staring at this floor covered in dirt shoes and all of last months dishes and trash that i refuse to tend to
Yeah I intend to clear the debt from my chest and free up space in my head
When it's hard to even leave my room cos' it's too easy to get fat, I mean comfortable
When my body settling down for a winter I'm hoping like hell we'll be spending it together
I'm hoping like hell we'll be spending it together

It's so hard when it's so easy to find fail in family
It's so hard when it's so easy to find fail in family
Track Name: Wide and Wired
WIDE AND WIRED
You're looking fucking pretty tonight with your drug fueled smile and your eyes wide and wired
Your pupils are as big as the sun, Your face is the deepest of red
You're looking mighty pale but I've always had a thing for girls with untampered skin
Where have you been sleeping? Have you been sleeping at all?

Take me home with you
I can't stand the lights or the stench of this room
Crowds have always kinda freaked me out

How is your brother doing? Is he still getting caught up in crime?
How's your biggest little sister? You share a mouth, nose and eyes
How's things at home? Do you still plan to plan to leave?
You know you've always got a house and a home and a heart in me
You've still got hands, You've got feet you could crawl and leave
(Just ask me, I'm great at pretending)

You and me were meant to be living self sufficiently hours from the city in a house on a hill that we'll build ourselves out of stick and of stone
You and me were meant to be living self sufficiently hours from the city in a house on a hill that we'll build ourselves out of stick and of stone

Maybe we've been drinking too much, maybe we don't get drunk together enough
You're just as beautiful as you've always been, You're a sight to see and you're not aging half badly
I look twice my age, I feel twice my age running circles at night round my couch and TV
Nothings ever radiating from the screen except reruns of movies and shows I've already seen
Maybe we've been drinking too much but baby we don't get drunk together enough
You're just as beautiful as you've always been
Track Name: Organs & Airports
ORGANS AND AIRPORTS
Are your lungs on fire?
Can you see straight tonight?
Well, You probably shouldn't drive and neither should I
Can you finish your glass?
So we can make our way to your house
Continue to talk about, Nothing at all

We can sit on your front porch and talk about airports and why everything feels so far away
Complain about our heart tattoo's and how they work so well together with that familiar touch of skin our hands remember

Tonight, Let's have a riot
Lose half our body masses in sweat, dancing and I LOVE YOU sex
Tonight

We've both been working on giving up all that's damaging our lungs
We both sport livers of stone and burning dry throats
I can't hardly see the ground 2 feet in front of me
But i could sideways walk back home to your second floor bedroom

Where i'll hang at the stairs and just wait for you there
Try to shake this drunken sway and try hard not to voice a mistake
Truth is I'll never be great at remembering birthdays and remembering names
I'll miss you while I'm away 'tho the change is only temporary

and if I was to ask you to wait
You're more than worth the wait
You're more than worth a months worth of lonely days

'Til then sit on your front porch and think about airports and why November's still so goddamn far away
Brag about our heart BEATS and how we drum so well together with that familiar touch of skin our sheets remember

Tonight.
Track Name: Whose Line Is It Anyway?
WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?
I'll meet you for coffee tho I can't stand the taste
I'll have a slice of plain toast before we meet in your cafe of choice
I've got this problem of living and loving too fierce
I always end up falling harder than most
I'm aching to stay upright, I'm just aching to stand upright

Sometimes I miss you so much that I try to live in this perfect steady high
But the drugs don't work and I'm running out of cash anyway

Here's somethings that'll never taste the same - your freshly smoked lips, been up the boozer again?

Please don't go, please don't go I'll be home from this tour in a week or so when i'll make up for my time spent away
I've travelled more this year than in my whole life and I'm sure it's been hard on the ones I love but it's only just the beginning

I was born to be away
I was born to be away
I was born to be away
I was born to be away

Here's somethings that'll never be the same - driving down the parade or watching Whose (fucking) Line Is It Anyway? and stopping at red lights especially
