Track Name: What We Get
CIGARETTE BUTT AND A COFFEE STAIN
YOU STAYED UP LATE IN A DRINKING GAME
THE PROBLEM NEVER GOES UNLESS YOU GO AWAY
DO WHAT YOU MUST TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE DAY

I HEARD YOU SINGING, YEAH I HEARD YOU CHANT
LATE LAST NIGHT IN A DRUG FUELED RANT
WORDS INSPIRED FROM A DRUNKARDS MOUTH
HERE'S YOUR SONG, YEAH HERE'S YOUR SOUND

GRAB WHAT YOU GET
DON'T LOSE HOLD THEN
MORE OFTEN THAN LESS
LIFE WILL CLOSE ON YOU

YOUR LONG NIGHTS HAVE TAKEN THEIR TOLL
ROBBED YOUR HEALTH BUT NOT YOUR SOUL
THE CORNER OF THE STREET WHICH YOU CALL YOUR HOME
LEFT UNKNOWN LEFT YOU ALONE

BROKEN GLASS EMBEDDED IN THE GROUND
RETURN PLASTIC BOTTLES TO THE LOST AND FOUND
SO THAT ONE DAY YOU MAY RISE AGAIN
WE SURE WILL HEAR YOU SCREAMING THEN

PAINT THE PAVEMENT WITH OUR BLOOD
HEAR US LAUGHING WE ARE DRUNK
PAINT THE PAVEMENT WITH OUR BLOOD
HEAR US SINGING WE ARE DRUNK
PAINT THE PAVEMENT WITH OUR BLOOD
HEAR US SHOUTING WE ARE DRUNK
PAINT THE PAVEMENT WITH OUR BLOOD
HEAR US SCREAMING WE ARE DRUNK
Track Name: Death Of The Party
MY TOES ARE COLD
RED RUNS ON THE PALE WHITE BLANKET
BOTH YOUNG AND OLD
HAVE COME TO SIT BESIDE MY CASKET
EVEN THOUGH
I'M NOT COVERED FROM HEAD TO TOE
THE PAVEMENT SHOWS
A PULSING BEAT OF SCARLET SNOW

I CHOKE MY LIVER FOR THE LAST TIME
THINK ITS QUITE PAST TIME
NEVER GONNA HEAR ABOUT IT
NEVER GONNA SPEAK ABOUT IT

LIVING IN A BACK SEAT
GETTING BACK ON YOUR FEET
NEVER GONNA HEAR ABOUT IT
NEVER GONNA SPEAK TO YOU AGAIN

I'M THE DEATH OF THE PARTY
HEART AIN'T BEATING IT'S RETREATING
I'M THE DEATH OF THE PARTY

A SIRENS CALL
PIERCED THE NIGHT WITH JUST INTENTIONS
HEARD THE FALL
OF MY RECENT ILL TRANSGRESSIONS
NOT THE CALL
THAT I WAS HOPING FOR
AN ENGINE STALL
SYNCED UP TO FINAL DRAW

I CHOKE MY LIVER FOR THE LAST TIME
THINK ITS QUITE PAST TIME
NEVER GONNA HEAR ABOUT IT
NEVER GONNA SPEAK ABOUT IT

LIFE IS FOR THE LIVING
WAS TAKING NOW I'M GIVING
UP WHAT I USED TO KNOW
TRADED LIFE FOR A BLOW

I'M THE DEATH OF THE PARTY
HEART AIN'T BEATING IT'S RETREATING
I'M THE DEATH OF THE PARTY
LUNGS ARE EMPTY BREATH HAS LEFT ME
I'M THE DEATH OF THE PARTY
Track Name: Sleepyhead
SEEMS YOU'RE GONNA SLEEP ALL DAY
BUT HEAR WHAT I'VE GOT TO SAY
I THINK YOU SHOULDN'T LIE IN BED
GO OUT TIL YOU'RE SKIN TURNS RED

OUTSIDE IT'S THE PERFECT BREEZE
THE SUN SHINING, COME OUT PLEASE
WHY WASTE AWAY SUCH A DAY
LIEING IN BED SAD AND GREY

I GET THAT YOU WERE DRUNK LAST NIGHT
AND YOUR ENGINES WON'T IGNITE
BUT IF YOU'D PLEASE COME WITH ME
WE CAN LAUGH AND WE'LL BE FREE

I PROMISE LAUGHS, I PROMISE SUN
I PROMISE BREEZE, I PROMISE FUN
LET ME PLEASE TELL YOU THIS
TOMORROW THIS DAY YOU'LL MISS

I HAVEN'T SLEPT IN AGES
AND YOU'RE NOT HELPING
GO THROUGH THE YELLOW PAGES
IF YOU NEED A BEST FRIEND

CAUSE YOU KEPT ME UP LAST NIGHT
AND I AIN'T FEELING RIGHT
I HAVEN'T SLEPT IN AGES
AND YOU'RE NOT HELPING

WE COULD SPEND THIS SUMMER DAY
PLANNING HOW TO RUN AWAY
OR IF YOU ARE BORED WITH GAMES
I GUESS WE COULD JUST SCREAM OUR NAMES

TIL THE POINT OUR VOICES BREAK
I DON'T MIND ME BESTEST MATE
C'MON OUT I INSIST
IT WOULD BE MY DEEPEST WISH

C'MON, C'MON SLEEPYHEAD
STRETCH YOUR LEGS OR YOU'LL DROP DEAD
Track Name: Tiny Knots
CAN'T HOLD YOUR TOUNGE
CHILD SINCE YOU WERE YOUNG
SCREAM YOUR LUNG
BUT NOT A WORD I HEAR

HOLD THAT THOUGHT
TIE IT INTO TINY KNOTS
STRING IT UP STRING IT
WATCH IT FLOAT AWAY
ALONG WITH EVERYTHING
WE LEFT TO SAY

PUT MY DREAMS IN RED BALLOONS
TIE THE KNOTS, TIE THE NOOSE
BUT TINY KNOTS COME UNDONE
MY DREAMS FLOAT UP TO THE SUN
THEIR COLORS RUN

WELL THEY FORCED US TO LISTEN
BUT THE POINT THEY WERE MISSING
IS THAT THE SONG THAT THEY SUNG
IS MEANT FOR ONE

NOW I CAN'T SEEM TO SHAKE IT
IT'S A FEELING DEEP DOWN THERE
SOON I'LL HAVE TO FACE IT
DEEP TO MY BONES I'M SCARED

IT'S THE TRUTH BUT IT AIN'T
A POINT WORTH STATING
I WON'T CHANGE
IF I DON'T WANT CHANGE
I CAN'T CHANGE
BUT I WANNA BE CHANGED

I KNOW IT WON'T MATTER
NOT A DIFERENCE TO BE MADE
I AIN'T LOOKING FOR A QUICK FIX
I NEED SOME MORE SUSTAIN
Track Name: Alabaster
YOUR HANDS ARE SHAKING
BUT YOU'RE NOT COLD
THE WALLS ARE BREAKING
DO WHAT YOUR TOLD
LEAVE THE HOUSE
YOU'RE GETTING OLD

THESE SHOULDERS
THEY LOOK SO WHITE
I TOLD YOU
ALABASTER CRACKS ON SIGHT
BUT MY PEARLY WHITES
WILL TAKE THIS STRAIN

PLEASE
JUST BURN WITH ME
I SAID
PLEASE
BURN WITH ME

CORRECTED YOURS
AT A TIME OF GROWTH
BUT NOW IT'S IMPERFECT
WISH I HAD A SPARE SET
SO YOU AND I
COULD CLASH OUR TEETH

TAKE YOUR ADVICE
THE ONE THAT I GAVE YOU
I'LL GO OUTSIDE
AND SCORCH MY SKIN
IN SCARLET HUES
JUST WISH THAT THE
REST OF US
COULD LIVE
OPPOSITE A POLAR BLUE

SCORCH YOUR SKIN
TO ME THATS A WIN
I'D LIGHT UP YOU
YOU'D LOOK BETTER
IN RED THAN BLUE
Track Name: Brick Thief
SLIGHT RETURN
BUT YOU HAVEN'T GOT THE CHOPS
SO YOU'RE SETTING UP SHOP
WHAT YOU HEARD
LEFT YOU FEELING NUMB
BUT THE JOB AIN'T DONE
HOLD YOUR WORD
BUT YOU BETTER HOLD YOUR TONGUE
CAUSE YOU ONLY GOT ONE
A HAND IS BURNED
BUT BRICKS THAT STOOD
BEAT STRAW AND WOOD

YOU'RE SO NUMB
HOLD THAT TONGUE
TELL ME SON
IS THE JOB NOW DONE

EVERY SEED YOU SOW
ANOTHOR WON'T GROW
SO YOU SHAKE IT OUT
HAVEN'T GOT ENOUGH
YOU'RE SHIT OUT OF LUCK
BETTER RIP IT OUT
EVERY SEED YOU SOW
ANOTHOR WON'T GROW
SO YOU BREAK IT OFF

SLIGHT RETURN
YOU'RE LOOKIN FOR MORE
TO ROUND OUT YOUR SCORE
WHAT YOU GOT
MORTAR FOR BLOOD
BUT BRICKS MADE OF MUD
TAKE YOUR LEAVE
WHAT'S UNDER YOUR SLEEVE
TELL ME BRICK THIEF
A HAND IS BURNED
BUT BRICKS THAT STOOD
BEAT STRAW AND WOOD
