Track Name: Upstate
Untie me from this anchor made up of faces
So taken with cages
Closed in by lines they drew
This is so fucked
How did you go so far you lost sight of who you wanted to be
Staying in station?

Growing sick of not wearing my heart on my sleeve and
Wearing myself down til I have no choice
I'm leaving
But I've always been taught to stand in place
I know in my chest this divided town can't mend
In the end at least I found my real friends

Days were a series of sticks and stones
It took your words to crack my bones
So try your hardest to hold your tongue
I'd fracture my own trying to break this tension.
Track Name: Astoria
Sat in a pool of self confidence
It's evaporating quick, just let me sink
Just let it sink in, just let it sink in
Can't you see that I am trying?
I am trying not to spend another year so sad
Or wondering who I am

Instead of wasting away you could've wasted time with me,
I asked you to sink or swim and you chose to drown in apathy
And honestly
You're just so fake

I never knew what I'd have to go through the past three sixty five days
Spent under the weight of getting over this
And I'm starting to feel new
In truth I'd rather be broken and used

I can't help myself

If you catch me warming the bench again on cold November nights alone
You should know
I'll step to the plate if you picked up the phone
I thought I told you to go home before you're locked out with only
Street lights for company, company

The winter seems longer than ever, the longer the better
Snowfall's the only thing I have left to get lost in
I'm learning to weather the storm in your words
Even if I capsize I'll drift to the shoreline

The movies always romanticise these sleepless nights
But the plot line to my life has been killing me
And I'm starting to feel new
In truth I'd rather be broken and used

I've seen enough five AM's
To never want to get out of bed again.
Track Name: Temporary
I hope you find yourself buried underneath who you've become
I've tried and failed to feel the same way about anyone
How can it be that my head and my heart see things so differently?

Cause I don't want this anymore
We're just ephemeral

You'll only stick around for so long, witness it all go wrong again
I'll stay close minded and ignorant
If it keeps me close to comfort
If it keeps me close
Keep me close to comfort

There's no space left between the truth and your lies
The words in his ear are the same that you whispered in mine
And you can swear that you tried but then why
Does this end the same way time after time after time?

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Between this and death I'm not sure where I sit on the fence
There are some things a pretty face can't mend
I can't mend, I can't mend, I
So tell me over again that you were running scared from the only one who ever cared
About the scars you hold so close
The ones you never show

Composing the corners of a hollow bed
Longing to be intact again

There's no space left between the truth and your lies
The words in his ear are the same that you whispered in mine
And you can swear that you tried but then why
Does this end the same way time after time after time?

After time after time

I don't want this anymore.

You left with the rest of what made me complete
This was all just temporary
You left with the rest of made me complete
I was only temporary.
Track Name: Jack Torrance
Where did it all go so wrong?
Sick of these endless nights that I spend awake and alone
You are the weight on my bones
You are the long drive home

Thoughts are as clouded as English skies when you're on my mind
When you're my mind, and I hate to admit how frequent that is
Your shadow's too much to lift
No shelter from the ghosts of this

Tell me what I need like I don't know myself
Without you around
Cause you've made all these choices for me
But time can't take away the flaws in our history

Cut me out, blistered so deep
I lost myself, you didn't even lose sleep
You are the weight on my bones
You are the long drive home

The expanse between what this is and what it was meant to be
Is suffocating
I've never known distance like the miles that part us
The borders of my teeth that I just can't get past
Hiding honesty
Honestly I'm sinking again
Attempting to avoid my grief

Tell me what I need like I don't know myself
Without you around
Cause you've made all these choices for me
But time can't take away the flaws in our history

If you're looking for sympathy don't look for me
I've spent enough time craving your company
Enough days spent on my knees

If you're looking for sympathy don't look for me
I've spent enough time craving your company
I'll let this defeat me again

If you're looking for sympathy don't look for me
I've spent enough time craving your company
Enough days spent on my knees

Cut me out, blistered so deep
I lost myself, you didn't even lose sleep
Cut me out, blistered so deep
All work and no play

Tell me what I need like I don't know myself
Without you around
All work and no play
I feel no greater loss than watching you drive away.
Track Name: Two Years Away
I'm a giant in a world that makes me feel small
Like none of the things I said filled the spaces around you
There's nothing I can do and nothing I want to when making this feel right feels so wrong
I write the same song just a different time another place
Another day I threw away
Overthinking all the shit that can never change

I'm coming to terms with the fact that there's not much left of you that I miss
You weren't there to begin with
And maybe today is about time I realise
That you don't mean a thing you say
And you don't know a fucking thing about me

I'm a ghost in a world that made me feel so real
But I was too numb to conceal it
Remove all of these artificial feelings
I watched two years pass me staring up at the ceiling

I've drawn this dotted line a thousand times
This ink runs dry
But I can't get you out of the picture
You are the thief who took the best of me

I'm coming to terms with the fact that there's not much left of you that I miss
You weren't there to begin with
And maybe today is about time I realise
That you don't mean a thing you say
And you don't a fucking thing
And you don't know a fucking thing about me

We never quite got this right
I'm fine by myself tonight
By morning that'll be a lie

We never quite got this right
I'm fine by myself tonight

Two years to the day spent away from myself

I'm coming to terms with the fact that there's not much left of you that I miss
You weren't there to begin with
And maybe today is about time I realise
That you don't mean a thing you say
And you don't a fucking thing
And you don't know a fucking thing about me
