lyrics: We kept wishing our lives away On a fairytale or something like that But never could have guessed that time would have moved so fast The first hit like a cigarette After months away and you crave that feeling Now I’ll never forget how it felt on the last Less than twenty hours later You were sitting in my room Taking names like they were strangers and you had everything to prove You said you liked it better on the verge of breaking I told you I’ve got nothing left to lose And just like that we found the cracks that had been hidden in plain view That night I was wide awake Dusting for fingerprints when I should’ve been sleeping And all the outlines you put up had slightly blurred At the start it looked a lot like love In the end I don’t remember much But I still picture you the way you were Cos that’s the way that I prefer Barely more than four weeks after You were laying in my car Planning for the next disaster As if the last month hadn’t passed I said I’ve gotten sick of all this distance You told me that you’ll never be too far Oh, how things change. It’s been a decade and now I don’t know where you are There’s no point pretending cos I’m not forgetting The evidence is all over my hands Cos I started a fire in the back of the ambulance and the police station And that was the catalyst to all I’ve burned since then Every now and then I find a photo I’ve not seen in years Hidden in a folder somewhere that I thought had disappeared It tells me that no matter how hard I try A piece of me will never let it go And even with the best intentions I miss the worst parts of this most

Reflections 04:11
lyrics Lined up in neat little rows With the lifestyle that you chose Or were forced into believing It’s all grifters selling tales From allegorical entrails In exchange for your freedom It’s been years since we last met You are kind and intelligent But that doesn’t stand to reason Things are fine; I don’t need gods They can’t be relied upon And they don’t give me any meaning Or anything to believe in You can dance alone with your reflections Convince yourself that there’s more to what we see For all we know, we’re just impressions But none of that means anything to me And the painful truth is, you’re better than your beliefs I see shapes in stars But we know what they are So tell me how you plan to work this out When you can’t tell the sights from the sounds They’ll take advantage of your pain Provide a powdered down cocaine All you have to do is leap Now it hurts to see you fall For the mean and mystical Just bow down, rinse, repeat So go and dance alone with your reflections Convince yourself that there’s more to what we see For all we know, we’re just impressions But none of that means anything to me And the painful truth is, you’re better than your beliefs So for now, let's just agree to disagree.

On the outside I’ve been looking for a way To get back in But I can’t find an escape From the names And the faces that I kept this side of you In the landslide We lost almost everything That we clung to What the fuck was I to do? Except run Except worry that you’d change your point of view Honestly I’m a mess but I guess I’m just tired To tell the truth I’ve been more like a liar Than I’ll admit to myself but I’m trying Not to let myself get carried away Parallel lines Keep on tugging at my sleeve But in the right light You could find what they don’t see So excavate Resuscitate me Take me far away from here I wake in the night And it takes you by surprise And you don’t like what you see I shake It’s alright I’m a vacant head of lies And you lay in disbelief I wake in the night And it takes you by surprise And you don’t like what you see I shake It’s alright I’m a vacant head of lies And you lay in disbelief Honestly I’m a mess but I guess I’m just tired To tell the truth I’ve been more like a liar Than I’ll admit to myself but I’m trying Not to let myself get carried away To tell the truth I’ve been more like a liar Than I’ll admit to myself but I’m trying Not to let myself get carried away
