1. I Heart Roberts' (featuring Helmet Roberts of the Daylight Curse) (3:34)
We dance to this dead beat with eyes locked on the prize,
This is our fatal disease, named you and me.
It's killing us all won't you set it free?
I'll hang you on the wall and call you misery.

So here's to you and here's to us,
To everything that ever fell apart,
Nights wasted getting wasted,
Days we lost to our mistakes...

So we'll never be lost 'till we're all alone
And we'll never be wrong till we're on our own
So wake up and we'll drink for two again.
And we'll never be right till we read our wrongs
And we'll never be done with these same old songs,
So wake up we'll wait for you again (again)

Like frozen appendages in boiling water
We're going to extremes and not getting warmer.
So hold your breath, and I'll do the same,
Are we just holding back those words we couldn't say?

So hold your breath I'll do the same,
Are we just holding back those words we...
I'll take the blame for your heart attack,
And we'll sever these ties with a fucking pact.
Through blood we share the world it's anybody's guess
Where we'll end up, our lives are just a fucking mess...
And we're sinking.

So we'll never be lost 'till we're all alone
And we'll never be wrong till we're on our own
So wake up and we'll drink for two again.
And we'll never be right till we read our wrongs
And we'll never be done with these same old songs,
So wake up we'll wait for you again (again)

My name is Rod... and I like to party
Alright Dave your up
Hi my name is Dave and I like to party
You know what lets move on
I like to party I'm Rod
No your Kevin
Right Kevin I party
No no you don’t... ok nobody parties but me
Yes
I'm the only one who parties
I'm pretty sure I've partied before
No you do not party
Yeah your right Dave is the party guy
Haha Sweet
Lets party

He lays himself to rest even though
He's making perfect sense...
His story goes untold
I read his words to see the end unfold...

So we'll never be lost 'till we're all alone
And we'll never be wrong till we're on our own
So wake up and we'll drink for two again.
And we'll never be right till we read our wrongs
And we'll never be done with these same old songs,
So wake up we'll wait for you again (again)
2. BDKIAF (3:17)
Why don't you hang these steps upside down,
We'll walk backwards and feel the blood drain to our heads
While your creeping away why don't we pull the punches back?

And perhaps rebuild those severed ties;
When I felt you destroyed everything I knew
I felt ever so slowly becoming you.

Where has my heart gone, and where has my faith gone?
And why am I still here, hating every breath you take
Where has my heart gone, and where has my faith gone?
And why am I still here, hating every breath you take

Every step you take, and every move you make?
And just wishing that you'd take
Your fucking last breath toward expiration;

I can't even make myself out in the fog,
You are the swamp,
You are the sand beneath my feet pulling me down.
I have no face for your name,
Your roots never went any further down;
I felt them writhe in the cellars of my mind,
Rotted through right where they fell, yet here I am.
The wasted pulp of what you are.

Where has my heart gone, and where has my faith gone?
And why am I still here, hating every breath you take

Every step you take, and every move you make?
And just wishing that you'd take
Your fucking last breath toward expiration;

But at least if I fall
I can say we failed (we failed) together (together)
Sure to be the only thing we ever shared
'Cause you were never there (never there)
And I'm yet to feel like I'm even here.
If I sink into the swamp that is misery,
At least I know you'll drown with me as well
3. Snitches Get Stitches (featuring Lochlan Watt of Ironhide) (3:21)
I can say firmly;
None of them knew the colour of the sky
(Colour of the sky)...
Imagine if we were lost at sea;
Not a single lip would move, to reveal the stars to me.
I am so... I am so... I am so... I am so... I am so
I am so lost amongst a sea of desperation
That these milky clouds fail to shine their light
On the path I know I'm meant to take.
The path I know I'm meant to take.

Loose lips sink ships and where
Were you when the sun went down
And our bows filled with lies?
Loose lips sink ships and where
Were you when the stern broke in two?
I was left with nothing to hold onto.

No one knew the colour of the sky,
No one knew where, or how, or why
Cement my thoughts to my ankles and cast me overboard
The liar, the wretch, the failed.
Cement my... Cement my... Cement my... Cement my
Cement my failures throw me overboard;
I'll stare skyward try to remember that, I don't blame them.
I don't blame them...
I don't blame them...
I don't blame them...
I don't blame them

Loose lips sink ships and where
Were you when the sun went down
And our bows filled with lies?
Loose lips sink ships and where
Were you when the stern broke in two?
I was left with nothing to hold onto

They could never see the true colour of the sky...
Wistful and lonely, caught on my own
My sky is the only, my sky, oh so lonely.
4. Do You Party (3:01)
Party
Party, All night, Party,
Why the fuck should we change how we behave,
Because you thought it would work better that way
And who the fuck told you that you should speak up
About how it is we act,
About who the fuck we are
When we don't cast our eyes your way
And who the fuck are you anyway
We're no one and we still feel right at home,
We're no one and we're still just passing time
To kill the time, to kill the boredom.
Who the fuck can say what we should do
We drink till we drop and we'll drink till we die
We're not here for a long time,

Party
Party, All night, Party,

We're not here to help your night,
We're not here to set shit right;
We're just here for a good time,
And friends are our own friends and our own,
Are our only; and tonight is the last night.
And fuck you for thinking you could ever set us right.
Who are you anyway to think you could change us?
Tonight is our own night, tonight is our only,
We're lonely, we're wasted!

And who the fuck are you anyway
We're no one and we still feel right at home,
We're no one and we're still just passing time
To kill the time, to kill the boredom.
Who the fuck can say what we should do
We drink till we drop and we'll drink till we die
We're not here for a long time...
We're not here for a long time...
We're not here for a long time...

Party
5. Poison Pen Letters (4:11)
Dying alone would be a privilege
If all my friends were like you.
Dying would be a privilege.
If all my friends were like you.

Rusted rail spikes and shards of glass give me rest,
Poison the earth in anticipation.
Rusted rail spikes and shards of glass,
Poison the earth in anticipation...
Poison the earth in anticipation.

So tear the pieces from the bone like you've torn us apart.
We've built bridges just for burning.
So light the fires in my eyes so I can watch my own demise.
We've built bridges just for burning.

Light the fires in my eyes,
Watch my own demise, watch my own demise
so I can rip my eyes from their sockets,
So I can rip my eyes,
So I can rip my eyes so no flowers will grow.

So tear the pieces from the bone like you've torn us apart.
We've built bridges just for burning.
So light the fires in my eyes so I can watch my own demise.
We've built bridges just for burning.
Just for burning.

And so you carve your, your name into my,
Into my heart with rusted rail spikes.

So light the fires in my eyes so I,
Can let them watch, my own demise.
So I can leave this all behind
And be left with my solitude intact.

So tear the pieces from the bone like you've torn us apart.
We've built bridges just for burning.
So light the fires in my eyes so I can watch my own demise.
We've built bridges just for burning.
Just for burning
6. Fruity Lexia (3:30)
It's not for lack of percipience that I turned my back,
it's just that I've become so absent
From my own train of thought.
I'm only just treading water...I'm only just treading water.
I'm only just treading water...I'm only just treading water.

It's not for lack of faith in what was shared
That I had to leave,
It's just that I've lost track of all the things you said,
And I'm only just treading water,
Just holding my head above the surface.
I'm only just treading water,
But it's starting to seep in a breath to wake me,
Like the shock of falling as you drift away.
I'm just not able to take it all in
I'm only just treading water,
But it's starting to seep in.

I'm not saying there's anyone
Any one thing that's left me floating in the breeze,
Or that the earth has pulled me in.
I'm just not where I should be.
I've lost track of my own train of thought;
And if the venom spills like turgid wine
From the mouth to which I belong, forgive me.
I'm only just treading water;
I'm only just above the surface of what I've become,
With sleep confined to rotten dreams.

I'm only just treading water,
Just holding my head above the surface.
I'm only just treading water,
But it's starting to seep in a breath to wake me,
Like the shock of falling as you drift away.
I'm just not able to take it all in
I'm only just treading water,

I'm only just treading water,
But it's starting to seep in- a breath to wake me,
Like the shock of falling as you drift away.
It's all that keeps me here.
I'm only just treading water
It's all that keeps me here.
I'm only just treading water but it's starting to seep in...
7. So You Melted (featuring Matthew Wright of The Getaway Plan) (2:48)
8. Jesse Intense (featuring Michael Crafter of Confession and Matthew Wright of The Getaway Plan) (4:13)
I let go of these cold nights long ago and
Now it's time for you to follow suit.
Take those night sky tears
And burning eyes stinging from pursuit;
Take your regret and sallow timbre and throw it
To the ocean where misery can seek it out
You know misery loves a lonely stranger.

And you've been waiting with open arms for so long, so long
Take a breath and roll it out,
It's high time for your chest to resonate
Something more tangible.
The angles, they're cutting in,
They're destroying the cohesion,
Cutting ties and killing friends.
So long, so long that now it seems to be a farce,
But it's painted on your face
Like the spread of an open book:
Time to throw it to the fire.
Settle down beneath the ocean,
Stare upwards raise your arms and say goodnight;
Tomorrow the sun dawns on settled scores,
And homeward bound, and homeward bound

And you've been waiting with open arms for so long, so long.
Take a breath and roll it out,
It's high time for your chest to resonate
Something more tangible.
The angles, they're cutting in,
they're destroying the cohesion,
Cutting ties and killing friends.
So long, so long that now it seems to be a farce,
But it's painted on your face
Like the spread of an open book:
Time to throw it to the fire.
Settle down beneath the ocean,
Stare upwards raise your arms and say goodnight;
Tomorrow the sun dawns on settled scores,
And homeward bound, and homeward bound

Oh yeah
You'll find your solace, you'll find your solace,
You'll find your solidarity and peace.
You'll find your solace, you'll find your solace,
You'll find your solidarity and peace.

So long, so long that now it seems to be a farce,
But it's painted on your face
Like the spread of an open book:
Time to throw it to the fire.
Settle down beneath the ocean,
Stare upwards raise your arms and say goodnight;
Tomorrow the sun dawns on settled scores,
And homeward bound, and homeward bound
So long, so long that now it seems to be a farce,
But it's painted on your face
Like the spread of an open book:
Time to throw it to the fire.
Settle down beneath the ocean,
Stare upwards raise your arms and say goodnight;
Tomorrow the sun dawns on settled scores,
And homeward bound, and homeward bound
9. The Blair Snitch Project (3:41)
The walls white, skies white,
Nights white, lights white
(And fuck you)
For being so fucking white tonight
My eyes roll back white,
White everywhere, lips white,
Words white, lies cold as the
White ice

Yeah,
And fuck you for
Being so fucking white tonight
We were always as hot as the white light
And cold as the white ice
But tonight, tonight I've passed
The point of no return
I won't be turning ‘round again

I was so blinded by your eyes
So blinded by those white lights
And dust is now what you’ve become
No longer such a fucking bright white light
And I can see further then I ever saw

The walls white, skies white,
Nights white, lights white
(And fuck you)
For being so fucking white tonight
My eyes roll back white,
White everywhere, lips white,
Words white, lies cold as the
White ice

Yeah,
And fuck you for
Being so fucking white tonight
We were always as hot as the white light
And cold as the white ice
But tonight, tonight I've passed
The point of no return
I won't be turning ‘round again

I was so blinded by your eyes
So blinded by those white lights
And dust is now what you’ve become
No longer such a fucking bright white light
And I can see further then I ever saw

The walls white, skies white,
Nights white, lights white
(And fuck you)
For being so fucking white tonight
My eyes roll back white,
White everywhere, lips white,
Words white, lies cold as the
White ice

Your white eyes,
You rolled back fucking eyes
They wont ever be falling on me again tonight

The walls white, skies white,
Nights white, lights white
(And fuck you)
For being so fucking white tonight
My eyes roll back white,
White everywhere, lips white,
Words white, lies cold as the
White ice
10. Love Is A Battlefield (Pat Benatar cover) (3:55)
(We are young, we are young)
We are young
(Heartache to heartache)
Heartache to heartache ,we stand
No promises,
No demands,
(Love is a battlefield)
Love is a battlefield
Woah, woah, woah (x3)

We are strong (we are strong)
No one can tell us we're wrong
(We're wrong)
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of our hearts knowing
Love is a battlefield

You're making me go
You're making me sigh
Why do you hurt me so bad
It would help me know
Do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you had
Believe me, believe me
I can't tell you I
But I'm struck by your love
But I'm chained to your side

[Chorus:]
We are young
Heartache to heartache
We stand
No promises, no demands (demands)
Love is a battlefield
(Woahhhh woah woah)
We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
(we're wrong)
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

We are losing control
You turn me away
Oh touch me deep inside
Before this gets old
We still feel the same
Theres no way this will die
If we can push closer
We lose our control
If your heart surrenders
You leave me to hold

[Chorus] (x2)
11. Stairway To Hell (featuring JJ Peters of Deez Nuts) (4:30)
For so many years I held my breath for you,
Held under what became the ocean.
Struggling to find footing on what became the ocean floor,
And now, as I reflect on what became my foundation.

Who am I to say the grass was ever greener,
Where my own feet struck the earth?
And that the fields, they seem much neater,
On my own side of the fence.
And who am I to question why you took the path you took?
And who the fuck am I to open this closed?
But the pages just keep turning, turning.

And my pen just won't run dry,
But my eyes they won't stop burning,
And yet you still have no reply.

I guess that in a way,
It had to be like this.
And I guess that in a way,
I'm glad it turned out like it did.
Because I couldn't stand your sight
If I ran into you tonight,
And if you died right now I just don't think
I'd have too much to say tonight.

And who am I to say the grass was ever greener,
Where my own feet struck the earth?
And that the fields, they seem much neater,
On my own side of the fence.
And who am I to question why you took the path you took?
And who the fuck am I to open this closed?
But the pages just keep turning, turning.

If you hear this just forget it.
If you hear this just forget it...

Oh!

"Beating me wouldn't mean anything now, I'm all through"
"All I want is to earn your respect,
How am I meant to do that if you won't fight me?"
"Maybe you shoulv'e thought of that,
Before you sucked at being a man your whole life"
"Oh my god, I hate you so much,
I just wanna smash your face in"
"Too late, I'm a dead man..."
