Track Name: Long Way Back
Find a way,
Some cliché,
To carry me, back home.
It's a long way back to you.

If we left,
Friday night,
Home in time for tea.
It's a long way back for me.

No, it's a long way back for me.
No, you can't let go of me.

Don't look down,
Don't look back,
Never turn around.
It's a long fall, back to me.
Track Name: Walter King of Scots
I used to think,
That I was my name.
Easy, mortal, counting the days.

Now I'm only smart,
In a mortal kind of way.
Easy, rubber, and plain.

I spent so long,
Looking for the words.
When I've found,
You need the sound first.

So when I'm through,
My day will dusk.
Easy, mortal, and plain.
Track Name: Throw a Smile
Throw a smile, at the bottle,
The one that convinced me to call you.
Throw a finger, throw a grin,
and take one on the chin 'cause you're lonely.

And you fucked me again,
I felt lonelier than when that bottle was full.

Throw a smile, at the woman,
The one that refused to smile back.
Now you've seen her, but don't linger,
We've all got our fingers to cast.

And you fucked me again,
I felt lonelier than when I found you, alone.

There's a smile, on a bottle,
A whiskey dream of paranoia.

'Cause you fucked me again,
I felt lonelier than when that bottle was full.
Track Name: Everything
Everything's gonna be alright,
I'm a steel trap mind, and all I ever have is time to think of you.
I've never heard your name,
But imagining to hear it once just blows my fucking mind,
what can I say?

I'm sick of being shy.
I paint you into pictures,
And I'm not even sure why.

Draw a line of exploding trees,
I'll be dancing in the leaves, pretending all I want is time to think of you.
I've never heard your name,
But imagining to hear it once just breaks my fucking spine,
what can I say?

I'm sick of being shy.
I paint you into pictures,
And I'm not even sure why,
I do that.
Track Name: Take What You Need
Couldn’t keep our feet off grass,
couldn’t stop the sky from turning black.
Like we were twenty-two.

Then the rain began to fall
in a day it covered up us all
when we were twenty-three

You know that you can
take what you need.
just don’t love,
what you leave.

some of us we learned to swim
climbed our way up and covered up our sins
like we had days to go.

But nothing is forgotten while the circle never breaks
The rain will never wash away the evil from this place
so wipe that dirty smile off your face.

couldn’t keep our feet off grass
couldn’t keep our sky from turning black,
but we’re not twenty two.

Don't forget to learn to swim,
the water now, it reaches to your chin,
and there's nowhere left to go.
Track Name: All My Might
Well I would never lie,
About this old frame.
Once to the eye,
I didn't know your name.
And I can't say, that I loved you on sight.

Now I'm a man who claims,
To know his word.
And I think it's fair,
That you understood.
I can't claim to have loved you on sight.

But I don't want to be
Misunderstood, you see.
I can't claim to have loved you on sight,
but I can't stop with all my might.

Well I would never lie,
About this old frame.
Once to the eye,
I didn't know your name.
But I'd lie, if I said I put up any fight.
And I can't stop with all my might.
