Track Name: Sandwiches
The silence before regret
and I’ve not even spoken yet
but just like the deepest cut
blood takes it’s time to show up

I’m always wrong
still facing the same damn problems
and i don’t solve them
I’m just sweeping them under carpets

Now we are a sandwich
and hate is the filling
the taste i can’t stand it
but I just keep eating

I’m always wrong
still facing the same damn problems
and I don’t solve them
and they won’t stay under these carpets

Think that i just might be the devil
the walls drain all my hope
and rage it grips and chokes
I’m hearing explosions, seeing ghosts
My skin it burns like coal
I bargain for my soul
Muscles make hostages of my bones
paralyse my vocal chords
the dark envelops all

And all my hope.
And all my hope.
Track Name: Spilt Milk
Disorientated again, sick to my stomach
Once again a screw up, egg shells for feet, fragile walk
and what was once a hug is starting to feel more like a choke hold
promised not to pick at it but this scar never gets old

sugar coated words but teeth so sharp they cut through bone
and they turn on each other casualties, blood, bodies grow
and though my shovels blunt with all the love I have I’ll dig this hole
It’s never deep enough, our regret alone will overflow

Maybe I’m the reason, Maybe you’re the reason
This baggage never goes, we hold hold too tight
we choke stay low

Maybe I’m the reason, Maybe you’re the reason
This baggage never goes, lets hold hold too tight
stay miserable

Maybe I’m the reason, Maybe you’re the reason
This chaos never goes, just hold that grudge
Stay miserable

Got my shovel, I’ve got my hole.
I have got my shovel, I’ve got my hole…
Track Name: Ok.... Since We're Being Honest
Okay, since we’re being honest...

After it all, outside of the chaos
No sense to be found, clarity opaque

I’m not pure of heart

Promised not to make it worse,
make better decisions
I couldn’t keep my word
I deserved defeat

I didn’t tell you when I was afraid
Hid myself from you just pushed you away
Couldn’t satisfy the destruction I craved
When all you gave was love

and I deserve less than what I have received
the void left behind bitterness that I keep
Oh i didn’t listen let anger take me
when all you gave was love
All i gave was “up”

I’m not pure of heart
Track Name: Take Me Old
We consistently age
forever changing
take me old if you want me, old if you want me
take me old

Oh these youthful days,
what was once now fading
take me old if you want me, old if you want me
take me old

‘cos one day I may not have the cognitive ability
to even tie my shoes or reach to brush my teeth
and if your still with me and i keep you from getting
Just know that I am grateful, though those words I may not speak
and I may forget faces, names, our favourite memories
but know my heart is full and in it your love I will keep
but if I am too late to make it too the toilet seat
I’d do the same for you if it meant more time we could keep

Take me old
