Track Name: Giving Up
We both thought things were gonna change,
But everything ended up the same.
Now I’m giving up.

I need to fly but there’s no escape,
I feel my eyes welling up with rage.
Now I’m giving up.

I need to go, I need to think, give me some time and space ‘till we can sort this out.
I need to go, I need to think, figure out what we want so we can sort this out.

We both thought things were gonna change,
But everything ended up the same.
Now I’m giving up.

Am I the one going through a phase?
Or is it you who will never change?
Now I’m giving up.
Track Name: Fighting the Thumb
I won’t be a while, just give me an inch
Please give me a smile and don’t be a bitch
I’m seeing my friends going out on the piss
It’s not too much to ask, still this problem exists

I’m always wondering why it seems you’re growing old fast
You think of reasons to cry while you dig up the past
You must believe me I try turning over inside
Still you wind me up screaming and shouting why?

World war three by the time I get in
We talk it over but still
There’s always that cloud hanging over

You act like there’s no bigger sin
Of course you insist it’s just me
Still there’s always that cloud hanging over

Do you remember a time not so far in the past
We wouldn’t bicker and fight there’d be no need to ask
If I was seeing my friends you would want me to go
I’d be having a blast, now your answer is no

I’m always wondering why it seems you’re growing old fast
You think of reasons to cry while you dig up the past
You must believe me I try turning over inside
Still you wind me up screaming and shouting why?

I’m fighting, I’m fighting the thumb
Track Name: On My Way
Is this the end of me and you?
I think I know it you do too
Forget the questions and lies
Forget pretenses and false ties

Forget good times that we’ve had
Don’t wanna face not going back
Yeah it’s been long and it’s been fun
We’ll both be sorry when it’s done

When I think it’s not you that I want
Then I know that it’s wrong to carry on

I’m just so sick of lying
And sick of all the fighting
Fuck this I’m on my way
Track Name: Almost
We have to talk she said,
but I don’t think we have to.
We could be best friends I said,
but that’s not what you think we should do.

But it’s taking too much time,
I think I’m gonna lose my mind,
I haven’t even left my home yet.
But everyone must choose
another person they won’t lose,
for all the years they live in.

But I don’t think I want that,
and I don’t think I need that,
and I don’t think I should say that,
We almost had it made.

We have to talk I said,
there’s some problems we should address.
Things are going fine she said,
you’re just a fucking perfectionist.
Track Name: Falling Down
Open your eyes criticise what’s in front of your face
Before too long it’ll push you over the edge
Freedom’s an illusion
Minimum wage keeps the workers in their place
If it’s not war it’s disease the economy breaks
News on the TV lies it's a fucking disgrace
Close your eyes if you wanna
Propaganda keeps the people in their place

It’s over now, this whole thing is falling down
Just hold me now, this whole thing is falling down

This whole thing is falling down
Just watch as they tear it down
This whole thing is falling down
Stand up, get out or get in
Look at this mess we’re in

If you look you will find and you’ll never forget
Effects of greed on this world and the people dead
Just live your life if you wanna
If doesn’t matter if it’s you that’s just been fed
If you consume then you’re doomed to spend your whole life in debt
Sell you a dream out of reach you can never get
The system will hunt you down
It’s all designed to keep you numb and in your place
Track Name: Cassiopeia
Ready. Okay.
Track Name: Box
It’s time for thinking outside the box
Reality is a question because
I’ve held myself back for far too long
No social life and nowhere I belong

I don’t know what I have to do
I’m lost in doubt without a clue
So motionless I have to try
I’m trapped in here I don’t know why

I’ve got this feeling I’m missing out
Seems like the world’s got their lives figured out
Another day just another waste
I take my time doing nothing in haste

I don’t know what I have to do
I’m lost in doubt without a clue
So motionless I have to try
I’m trapped in here I don’t know why

I build it up just to watch it all falling down
(Just move along hoping things will just be alright)
It’s time for thinking outside the box

Life's got no meaning I feel so lost
I had a dream I forgot what it was
Just too distracted just killing time
And fucking sick of pretending I'm fine
Track Name: Take It Easy
Take it easy when you’re gone
Since you’ve been back we’ve had so much fun
Back on the lanes like the glory days
Times have changed in so many ways
Forgot our youth so we relive the past
God I wish those days could have last
We thought our lives were all set in stone
Who’d have thought we’d grow up and get old

I waste my time wasted with you
Here’s to the good old days we never thought we’d see
I raise my pint and drink with you
Here’s to the good old days we never thought we’d see again

Think of the times when we all did the same
Rolling joints trying to hide from the rain
And always out creeping round in the dark
Building dens getting pissed in the park
I feel the same as I always did then
It never dies living on till the end
The legend says and it’s written in stone
Fuck growing up we’ll never get old

I think about my life
I stop and wonder why?
Then my eyes flip back with giant Mars's inside my head
So we just keep getting high
Track Name: Who Int You
I’m sitting here
On my own just sitting here
I wanna feel your love but you broke it off and took it away

Now what to do?
My eyes are red I’m feeling blue
I wanna call you but there’s really nothing for me to say

I’m holding out for life to all work out some day and be fine
But all I ever do is think of you
I’m heading out to town the night life drowns my sorrows in time
Still all I ever do is think of you
I’m broke in two

I'm sitting here
On my own just sitting here
With a warm flat beer and an overfilling stinking ashtray

It’s been a year
A drunken wreck abandon year
I wish I’d known you called but I smashed my phone and threw it away
Now you’re sitting here
Across from me you’re really here
With the nerve to tell me your boyfriend left and threw you away
(Ha shit yeah I know how it feels)

I really hope this time my life works out and I’ll be fine
Why did I ever waste my time on you?
I’m headed out to town the night lights shine so bright tonight
Zip up my heart and find me someone new
Who isn’t you
Track Name: Mary Jane and Me
Tell me a fairytale
Tell me you’re sleeping there
Tell me you’re happy there with him
Tell me your life is bare
Tell me you’re lonely there
Tell me that you want rescuing

Is this another boring day?
Is it your dream to be taken away?
Is this what you grew up to be?
This marriage ain’t for me
Said Mary Jane to me

Twenty years ago today
In a playhouse far away
I saw you standing there on stage
You kinda smiled to me
The lighting dimmed for me
I waited for you in the rain

Are you watching the children grow?
Do you remember what happened so long ago?
Is this how you want things to be?
This marriage ain’t for me
Said Mary Jane to me

I pay your apartment rent
I see you now and then
The kids seem happy there with him
Tell me your life is bare
Tell me you’re lonely there
Tell me that you want rescuing
