Track Name: Black Eye View
Lyrics:-

You only picked me up so you could talk me down.
You just wanted me gone, I wanted you around,
& then you made my choice like it was up to you.
I hadn't slept for days, we never shared a bed.
I spent a night away for you to clear your head.
You had a worn out voice,
I had a black eye view.

So when I got the news I just couldn't believe,
You said "It isn't you, it's all to do with me & how we're not the same as the way we were".
I didn't understand how it had come to this.
One day we're holding hands, the next we're throwing fists...
Maybe not physically but at least with our words.

Oh, I can read between lines and it's not worth it for me to be gracious anymore.
Oh, you don't have to spell it out, it's not working.
Don't mind me, I know my way to the door.
So I'm walking out...

I wrote the things that I thought you would want to hear,
"Let's take a plane and fly the fuck away from here. We'll take the cat and leave the rest of this behind".
You said "I'm sorry Dan but it just won't work out. There's no point making plans 'cause I don't love you now and if I did before, I couldn't tell you why".

Oh, I can read between lines and it's not worth it for me to be gracious anymore.
Oh, you don't have to spell it out, it's not working.
Don't mind me, I know my way to the door.
So I'm walking out...
Track Name: To Water On Mars
Lyrics:-

I hope he never learns about what we've done.
You slowly began to turn & started to run,
Away from the ownership of the words that you said.
So now you're alone in this empty twin bed.

A drink to the smaller things that help us get by,
So when your phone starts to ring, ignore it tonight.
You look so beautiful when you're at your worst.
The best part is wonderful & quenching it's thirst.

You quietly led me up the stairs & said that I should make myself at home.
Surrounded by the small objects he bought for you so you don't feel alone.
I should feel bad but I don't, I guess that says it all.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but though we've both been here before,
We will be again.
Track Name: Fear & Clothing
Lyrics:-

It doesn't matter what you think you said.
It's what you do that counts so tonight I'm counting on you.
I don't know anybody else round here,
I guess they don't know me and this time we've got a lot to get through.

It's not important who you think you are or who you were before so tonight you could be anyone.
I won't pretend I'll ever learn your name,
I barely know my own but I'll try to be the clever one.

And as it starts it turns your head around.
Another chance you lost to just be found.
And in the arms of the dark you fear you never chose to end up here but here you are.

Then she said;

"Now just because you let me slip into some comfy fucking clothes doesn't mean you know me like you should.
But as we're here and we're up for review,
I'll tell you how it goes because I've seen it before and it doesn't look too good.

So once I'm gone, I'm never coming back.
'Cause all the fun was never worth the flack.
So, take your wears, they're taking up my floor.
Your shirts & shoes that always beg for more.
And get in your car,

And drive."
Track Name: I Went To Parts
Lyrics:-

Spewing rhetoric & rage onto a page that doesn't care,
If I've ever been right here or if I'm ever really there,
And I've been staring at the ceiling longer than I've been asleep,
And I've been faking every feeling that I've felt the last few weeks,
And I'm so sorry for that.

Like when I smile, I'm not smiling, I'm merely bending my lips,
For a girl that doesn't love me anymore the way she did.
But, it's not that I don't feel happy 'cause I'm not feeling at all.
I guess I'm getting good at acting like I do each time she calls.
And I can't get a hold...

Doctor, Please!
Just another week, I swear it's what I need to help me,
Stop & see just what I've become,
'Cause I'm not having fun,
I need to fight the urge to run home.

Listing every single blessing with so much room left to spare,
And my mum says "You've still got your health" but she isn't aware,
That I've been falling victim to a curse that's been making me ill,
And I've been fighting for my life with panic & prescription pills.
My brother tells me it's all in my head "just get a grip"...
Well, I've been hanging on the last few years and never let it slip.
So, as the sunlight hit my eyes I hid away to find the dark,
And as I laid alone in our old bed it's clear, I went to parts...

Doctor, Please!
Just another week, I swear it's what I need to help me,
Stop & see just what I've become,
'Cause I'm not having fun,
I need to fight the urge to run home.

'Cause I've spent too much time here like this,
So just give me something small...
Give me anything at all...

Four days, I paced the rooms just waiting for the week to end,
Ignoring calls from all my family, my job & even friends,
And on the Friday night I had to say "I haven't been myself",
And when I did, she turned to look at me and said that she could tell...

Doctor, Please!
I appreciate the help but nothing's changed & well, now I am
On my knees,
I don't mean to over-act,
But I don't think you understand.
And I don't want to end up back...
...alone.
Track Name: Cold Coffee
Lyrics:-

Well I've got this weakness that I should've scratched away by now but this scar's the deepest so when you're going up, I'm coming down.
Well I'm still in one piece, like you'd ever agree to come back to my place.
But I think I need this & I'm sure that I've got you figured out.

But there's something in the way that keeps me from seeing the joke between the pieces bent & broken.
Now I guess I'm too afraid to tell you how it really feels to hear the clicking of your heels near me again.

It's not as if I love you, it's just that I'm far to quick to break & if I could trust you then a little patch would be all that it takes to act as a numb for the itch, of the crave when it stings. As it takes me back to that place. With the light about you I could've sworn that you looked just like a saint.

But sinners have more fun so I'll keep looking for that rush & the drugs have taken hold.
And I've tried replacing your nicotine with the hit of her caffeine but the coffee's getting cold.

There's something in the way that keeps me from seeing the joke between the pieces bent & broken.
Now I guess I'm too afraid to tell you how it really feels to hear the clicking of your heels near me again.

You want to know how it feels?

I'll try to show how it feels!

There's something in the way, the way you hold me down.
Track Name: The Apple Tree
Lyrics:-

I'll go down with the others.
At the end, that's where I'll be.
I'll meet you at the bottom of the lake where you buried me.
But I won't lay here for long.
How long's enough for you?

You're just like your father.
As soon as he's uncomfortable he runs away.
Now I've had time to recover from when you left me on the wall.
It's all OK.
I've burned these bridges all before & crossed them once or twice for you.

But, I can't blame my dad for this & you can't blame yours.
I never found a name that fit the box upon my wooden floor.
I tore the pictures up & then I found myself some space for something new.
And all they did was bring me down & keep taking up too much room.

I'll leave this where I'm meant to.
On its own to gather dust.
That's not to say that I want to.
I don't want to.
But I know that I must.
I'm not as weak as I once was.
I guess it rests here in my blood.
