Track Name: just sort your shit out
the aggressive chirp of the alarm, and the foul taste in your mouth
you don't remember going to bed again, and it goes on and on and on

the bus is full of schoolkids, their laughing cuts you like a knife
the sun is shining, it's warm against your face, but it just annoys you

you hate this place, your desk, your colleagues
the glow from the screen hurts your eyes now the hangovers kicked in
this is how you choose to live your life

it's only lunchtime and you're thinking of tonights beers
might as well eat with your mouth open, and it goes on and on and on

open your eyes, take the world with your withered hand
embrace the joys it has to offer (and i don't mean the booze)

it doesn't have to be like this, a black hole of despair,
surrounded by the negative
you deserve better, you can have more
embrace the positive, or it goes on and on and on

and on, and on, it just goes on and on and on, and on, and on

it doesn't have to be like this, a black hole of despair
surrounded by the negative
you deserve better, you can have more
embrace the positive

there's no point sitting at your desk, complaining and moaning
when you could change your life so simply

there's no point sitting at your desk, complaining and moaning
when you could change your life so simply
Track Name: i can't save you if don't want to save yourself
it was never meant to be like this
but i can't help but smile
as we hold each other tight

your touch, your smell
and as i watch your hair in the breeze
it all comes back

it's funny how things turned out
we were so happy
but even though it all broke down
it's always nice to see your face

i feel the floor creak beneath us
i look around and hope that help arrives
fire surrounds us and your sweats not helping me
to hold you as you dangle down

i look in your eyes and i know
if i let go i'll never see you again
but if i do then i'm free
but what if this is meant to be?

i don't want to make the wrong decision
cause i still get that feeling when our eyes meet
i don't want regrets or what if's
i just want to do what's best for me

we'll never rebuild this house we built
it will never be the same
but we could save ourselves, start a new life

the longer i hold on the harder it becomes
the longer we hold on the worse this will become
i don't want to be the guy who died wishing he'd done something different
Track Name: you have no idea how uncomfortable this makes me feel
this ground is so hard
and this spade is so heavy
but i chip away at the ground

i try and live my life without regrets
sometimes it's hard, we all make mistakes
should i have said something else?
was i not being clear?
i couldn't want you any more
why else am i here?

i ache but i can't stop
i only need six feet
so i dig away at the ground

i want to wake up each morning
with you by my side
and live my whole life
and never say goodbye
there's so many things that i've never said
and being your friend is like a disguise

i've looked into your eyes a thousand times
and i could look a thousand more
but i'll never have the balls
to say i love you

i think you're amazing
and i want you to know
but i'll never have the balls
to say i love you

the sky fades the deeper i go
i'll dig until i can't climb out
i can never tell you, you're so happy
so this grave is my escape

and i'll lie here in the dirt
there can only be two outcomes
either i die here
or you save me
Track Name: i don't hate you
the sight of oxygen masks on a doomed flight
completely peaceful surrounded by panic and noise
the look in your eyes will never leave me
you couldn't think of a single person on this planet
that you'd like to die next to less

things we should have said before we even booked this flight
and now my smiling smug face is the last you'll ever see
smiling because the sadness in yours makes me happy

silently i plan my last words
the last you'll ever hear
i don't hate you, i pity you
and i want you to know

they'll probably never find our bodies
after we plunge into the sea
and we'll have a joint memorial
because we died as lovers
