Track Name: Skin
I want your hair between my fingers
Wanna feel the fire inside your stare
My body thinks that it's drowning
Breathing the silence in the air

Well I think we might lose our minds today
And I think you might tear my world away
Oh yeah

Cus I want you on my skin
And I wanna make you scream
Oh and I'll fight you tooth and nail
Cus I want you to win
I want you on my skin

I want your hands inside my calvins
Wanna feel your pulse between my teeth
And I can feel my legs fill up with needles
As your breath rattles through me

And I think we might lose our minds today
And I think we might bruise our hearts this way
Oh yeah

Cus I want you on my skin
And I wanna make you scream
Oh and I'll fight you tooth and nail
Cus I want you to win
I want you on my skin

I want your belt around your ankles
WI want your grasp around my neck
I wanna feel the burn of bleeding scratches
As your eyes roll in your head

And I think we might lose our minds today
And I think we might bruise our hearts this way
Oh yeah

Cus I want you on my skin
And I wanna make you scream
Oh and I'll fight you tooth and nail
Cus I want you to win
I want you on my skin
Track Name: Nothing
Nobody tells you it will all change
Your brow will furrow
Your love will wane
You can never go home
Without the deep sting of pain
And why would they tell you this

Cus I waited for you
And I waited to prove

That I've got
Nothing - Nothing
I've got nothing for you
Nothing - Nothing
I got something for
Nothing - Nothing
I've got nothing for

Nobody tells you the old friends will die
You'll only remember your last
Scrap in their eye
You'll slowly forget them
But not if you try
And how would they tell you this

Cus I waited for you
And I waited to prove

That I've got
Nothing - Nothing
I've got nothing for you
Nothing - Nothing
I got something for
Nothing - Nothing
I've got nothing for

Nobody tells you you'll seethe and resent
The rich man for smiling
The weak who repent
And the fever keeps crawling
Wth no-one's consent
And why would they tell you this

Cus I waited for you
And I waited to prove

That I've got
Nothing - Nothing
I've got nothing for you
Nothing - Nothing
I got something for
Nothing - Nothing
I've got nothing to lose
Track Name: Kill Me
She's the wave that took me from my place
And she smashed worn glass across my face
Kiss me through a cloud of mace
And all will be forgiven

And she's the sun that burns my eyes
With sharpened tongue and grated sighs
Pluck my dreams out of the sky
And tear them all wide open

Cus I think that she might kill me
But I need her to breathe
I know it's easier to go
But I - I need her to breathe

She's the fire that rages red
And drops the bombshells in my bed
Oh I hope I don't wake up dead
Before I scream for mercy

And she's the beat that keeps my heart
My winning finish my false start
The song that stretches nerves apart
And sews them back together

Cus I think that she might kill me
But I need her to breathe
I know it's easier to go
But I - I need her to breathe

She freed my heart
She feeds the blame
And slowly washes
All he pain
From one hand to another
From one hand to another
From one hand to another

Cus I think that she might kill me
But I need her to breathe
I know it's easier to go
But I - I need her to bleed
Track Name: All In
We played drinking games with eachother's hearts
From the ground it's hard to see the stars
When your hair obscures your face
My darling such a waste

There's a lotto ticket in your bed
I know you were playing me instead
I know you've empty pockets
You've got your hands on your ears
When I'm begging you to stop it

Just cause you're all in
Doesn't mean you're gunna win
You're all in

When you're wearing all of my clothes
You're leaving me way out in the cold
Get that hair out of your face
Cheap lipstick cheapens the taste

I'm bluffing I don't know if you are
You keep crying and taking it too far
Broken bottles empty glasses on the floor
I hear you scream as you're asking for more

And I caught you in another hundred lies
You keep smiling as you're wasting all my time
I'm begging you to stop it
But you think I can't feel you hands in my pockets
When I'm begging you to stop it

Just cause you're all in
Doesn't mean you're gunna win
You're all in
You're all in

Just cause you're all in
Doesn't mean you're gunna win
You're all it
Track Name: Wears Me Down
These pills that I forget to take
That bend me till my body breaks
Bare my teeth
And my heart flakes to nothing

These thoughts that slip into my head
That keep me seething in my bed
Shed the skin
I thought I'd scratched to nothing

And it wears me down to nothing
And it wears me down to me

The beauty I forget to see
That walks in step with haunted dreams
And serves my memories up for free
For nothing

The love that I neglect to make
That bends me till my bones they shake
Bare my teeth
Cus I don't take to nothing

And it wears me down to nothing
And it wears me down to me
Track Name: Leaving
Honey I've lost myself
You don't know the feeling
But I've never known much else

I've been in pain for so long
I'd rather be strung up
Than dragged along

Cus I've been waiting
For you to come to me
And you've been waiting
For something that I'll never be

You just don't love me no more
Cus I'm losing my mind
And it's killing us all
I make you feel insane
Cus you can't make no sense
Of my gaslighting games

We've both been working so hard
I'll be asleep by the time
That you get in your car
I saw that fire in your eyes
Oh when you screamed and you screamed
That you don't have the time

My heart's littered with some things
That you'll never see
You've been begging
For something that I'll never be

You just can't love me no more
Cus I'm losing my mind
And it's killing us all
I make you feel insane
Cus you can't make no sense
Of my gaslighting games

I'm leaving town
I'm getting out
There was a price and there's always been
You'll leave a note
When you let go
Saying that you deserve better than

My ribs have punctured my lungs
Because I've been laughing
And laughing at what I've become
You've made me such a tough hide
If you hadn't have fought me
I wouldn't have chosen a side

We all come clean in the end
Cus we can't keep on squirming around
In the thick of the scent

You've been afraid for so long
But you'd rather the strung
Strung up - than dragged along

My heart's littered with some things
That you'll never see
You've been begging
For something that I'll never be

I'm leaving town
I'm getting out
There was a price and there's always been
You'll leave a note
When you let go
Saying that you deserve better than

I'm leaving town to leave you
I'm leaving I don't need you

I'm leaving - I'm getting out
Track Name: You Would Do the Same for Me
Somewhere in New Jersey
My heart took a break to beat
And as time was fucking money
Well she smiled and said 'we'll see'
You'll never see the forest
While you're stuck inside your greed
As you wait for you life to be long

And I'll lie to your face
And I'll lead you astray
And I'll give you away
Oh but honey
You would do the same for me

Nothing works out till you work out
What you're doing wrong
And there's nothing left to gain
When you hide secrets in your songs
Lying is a game we play
That helps us all belong
While you wait for what you will become

And I'll lie to your face
And I'll lead you astray
And I'll give you away
Oh but honey
You would do the same for me

Nothing else will change you ways
Until your voice is gone
And we are not mistaken
We've been herded up and stung
The only thing you'll see
Are these ideals to which you've clung
While you wait for you life
To be gone

And I'll lie to your face
And I'll lead you astray
And I'll give you away
Oh but honey

Don't we all do things for money
Awful things for money
And you'd do the same for me
Track Name: Freightliner
You hit me like a freightliner
You hit me like a freightliner
You'll never be
What I wanted

So I'll leave you at the station
Say that I was stuck in immigration
There's a song that plays in my head
There is someone that I want instead of

You hit me like a freightliner
You hit me like a freightliner
You will never be what I wanted

They put arrows in our skin
And we keep pushing those barbs further in
Blind archers shoot at night
Cus they won't see me in the morning

And you hit me like a freightliner
You hit me like a freightliner
You will never be what I wanted
Track Name: Bitter End
Well I hope that when we die it's fucking over
Cus I won't do this shit over again
It's cruel enough that we're just growing older
And I'd like to know that there's a bitter end

Cus I won't believe
That I won't be free

I hope that when I'm gone you'll hold my mother
And tell her that I'm better off this way
Cus I never liked the dawning of new troubles
And I hated that old day job anyway

Cus I won't believe
That I'm not allowed to leave

Take my blue guitar down to the water
You know that I won't play it anyway
And you know that I've been living on the border
Of life and death where sore minds go astray

Cus I won't believe
That I won't be free
Cus I don't believe
