Track Name: Intro
I'm not saying that I should head home
But I'm so bored and tired of feeling wasted
So I'll just flag as others coast along
Sat there every day forcing my belonging so that I stay
With denial of distaste what's the point of pressure anyway?
I'm not going home

I'll make some distractions of my own
But I don't want drive losing concentration
So I'll just flag as others coast along
Sat there every day forcing my belonging so that I stay
With denial of distaste what's the point of pressure anyway?
But now suddenly a day where passion can start to take centre stage
The perfect chance to take
So here goes nothing
Track Name: Rotting My Teeth
I spend too much time here on my own
That's why it feels so good to be home
Where I can be productive absence of any guilt
I know it's not for long, but it's really not ideal

So here we go again
Waiting for the weekend
I'll sit here until then
Rotting my teeth, 'cause I can't wait to be home

Looking at train times on my phone
I just cannot wait to get home
And bring my attention right back to where it belongs
I know it's not ideal but it won't be for very long

So here we go again
Waiting for the weekend
I'll sit here until then
Rotting my teeth, 'cause I can't wait to be home

Call me
Lazy
But I know where I should be

So here we go again
Waiting for the weekend
I'll sit here until then
Rotting my teeth, 'cause I just can't wait
To
Be
Home
Track Name: Sum To None
Hi, what is your name? My name is love
I'd like you to try
But there's many things to overlook
Oh there's just no chance
It'd be like sitting in a silent room but I don't know why
There's just something about you

When she thinks she's got everything in the palm of her hands
But to me it's just total delusion
I don't know if she's desperate or just keeping her hopes high
Not that way, should I say? What would I fucking know anyway?

Well I hope that you enjoy your ideal lives
Even though the truth will never be out of sight
And you try to have it all

You will know your ideal lives are
False, they're fake, they're just like you and you will see
They sum to none

Hi, what is your name? My name is crush I'd like you to try
But there's many things to overlook oh shit you're the one
But I'm just not feeling it with you, I don't know why
You seem like the perfect excuse

When she thinks she's got everything in the palm of her hand
But to me it's just total delusion
I don't know if she's desperate or just keeping her hopes high
Not that way, should i say? What would i fucking know anyway?

Well I hope that you enjoy your ideal lives
Even though the truth will never be out of sight
And you try to have it all

She
She'll bottle it
When she stares
At her dress

Get me the fuck out of here

She
(She'll stare at her feet)
She'll lose control
(She'll lose control)
At her reflection
(At her reflection)
Her mind's interception

Well I hope that you enjoy your ideal lives
Even though the truth will never be out of sight
And you try to have it all
And you try to have it all

And you try to have it all

You try

You will know your ideal lives are
False, they're fake, they're just like you and you will see
They sum to
They sum to none
Track Name: All Due Disrespect
Your deluded state of mind has
Made you think you're better than us
It makes me wonder if you even feel love

Or is your heart, as black as I think it is?
Your serrated words slice through brittle ears

All due disrespect
I hope I never see your sunken shallow face again
With a body more bone than man
It's not hard to understand how you
Lie so easily
There's a forked tongue behind your teeth

With the morals and appearance of a starving rat
It's no wonder that you lie, to yourself
You're the most pathetic human I've ever met
You will get what's coming to you yet

All due disrespect
I hope I never see your sunken shallow face again
With a body more bone than man
It's not hard to understand how you
Lie so easily
There's a forked tongue behind your teeth

No more holding back
I hate you, you made sure of that

I hope you're never happy
For how you treated me

All due disrespect
I hope I never see your sunken shallow face again
With a body more bone than man
It's not hard to understand how you
Lie so easily
There's a forked tongue behind your teeth
Track Name: Misery
Almost every day we get targeted
And made to feel the shame
Sex only sells to those easily swayed
I guess that ignorance is bliss
To those that have it

So what gives you the right?
To take the confidence from their lives

How could you fill their heads with all those lies you fed so carelessly?
They are the reason why you cannot sleep at night
I don't know why they have to destroy self esteem
Just to turn a profit from everyone's
Misery

Seeing adolescents hurting
Because you made them feel strange
It fills me with shame to be part of a generation that claims
That your appearance holds more worth than your name
Or so they say

So what gives you the right?
To take the confidence from their lives

How could you fill their heads with all those lies you fed so carelessly?
They are the reason why you cannot sleep at night
I don't know why they have to destroy self esteem
Just to turn a profit from everyone's
Misery

(Sweet Solo)

How could you fill their heads with all those lies you fed so carelessly?
They are the reason why you cannot sleep at night
I don't know why they have to destroy self esteem
Just to turn a profit from everyone's
Misery
Track Name: Beautiful Minds
There is too much to say
At the end of the day
Standing strong to make
A difference to the same
I don't know what to think about it
It's so hard to find
A single sentence to describe it
Beautiful Minds

I could not deal with that shit now
How could you still be standing after all of this

Here's an ode to all of your lives
You could not be more deserving of admiration
There's no way that you can deny
You are what we need in a time when there's none to lose

There's too much to say at the end of the day
No anaesthetic aid needed to numb the pain
What a way to go about it, nobody left behind
In fear of deteriorating
Beautiful Minds

I could not deal with that shit now
How could you still be standing after all of this

Here's an ode to all of your lives
You could not be more deserving of admiration
There's no way that you can deny
You are what we need in a time when there's none to lose

I know it's quite, a delicate insight
And I know, it's far too late, to change the first mistake
But I know, that their lives, will stay stuck in my mind
For a long, long time
So praises to their beautiful minds

Not looking for sympathy, but not just phasing out the truth
They will be dearly missed, but life is calling for all of you
Not looking for sympathy, but not just phasing out the truth
They will be dearly missed, but life is calling for you

I know they're not lying, to themselves they are trying
But it still seems effortless, draining the emptiness
I know they're not lying, to themselves they are trying
But it still seems effortless, draining the emptiness

Hats off to you, with all the shit that you've been through
I can't believe what i'm seeing (x4)

And you don't know that I've written this
But I don't really care, the whole world deserves to
Deserves to know about this family and that they saw it through
It's so good
