Track Name: Falling Backwards
You're falling baby backwards
hoping to find your lovers arms
instead you're clinging
onto what now is gone

i could have been those arms
i could have been those arms

Dark nights turn to sunrise
you cling to yourself to feel alright
comfort baby can't be found
your feelings wont surface they only drown

sorry i can only bring you down
sorry i can only bring you down

it feels like I've wasted all my life
it feels like I've wasted so much time

i'm sorry i'm not happy
i'm sorry baby i'm not sad
i'm sorry i'm not happy
i'm sorry baby i'm not sad

All my life you've been the lightning strikes
and the rolling thunder by my window at night
all my life you've been the lightning strikes
and the rolling thunder by my bedroom at night

and i'm just a cloud
watching from afar as you're headed into the ground
and i'm just a cloud
watching from afar as you're headed into the ground
Track Name: Collecting Nothing Part 1&2
I am your bad days
I am all the pain and suffering
you are all these feelings inside my heart
slowly tearing this ship apart
you're tearing/tearing/tearing/tearing
me apart

I have been collecting nothing for sometime
I should really not stay inside
but it's so easy to slowly die
still sleeping beneath your favorite star
feeling like you're just as far away

So honey just let me know how long until you let me go
How long till you let me go
Let me know
Cause all my heart ever does is drown
to the melancholy sound
of this fucking broken town
where i'll be found

Bum-bum-bum

So honey just let me know how long until you let me go
How long till you let me go
Let me know
Cause all my heart ever does is drown
to the melancholy sound
of this fucking broken town
where i'll be found

These battered bones are everything i have
it's hard to smile when you always feel so fucking sad
dear friend of mine I am doing fine
I still feel pain so at least i know I'm still alive
Track Name: Scatterbrain
Hoping that this will never end
knowing that we're both likely to break and bend

who will hold onto me
who will hold onto me
and tell me that everything's fine

Living in this daily hell
know that I will still always wish you well
running hard away from the past
Try our best just to make these good times last

Who will hold onto me
who will hold onto me
and tell me that everything's fine

Baby I am here
to help you disappear
when everything becomes 2 much
I didn't mind being your crutch
I watched you die the other day
took one to many pills and slipped away
into an eternal beauty sleep
where you could always stay pretty
but now i hear you're doing well
but complain every day's stills hell
I am so sorry i'm not around
to turn around all your silly frowns

cause you said
I will always let you down
and I can only let you down
and i will always let you down
and i can only let you down

chocking on time
baby feed me all these lies
give me artificial dreams
of loving everything
and i'm digging my grave as everybody waves
goodbye as they leave these days i'm losing everything

And i'll stuff my face into my pillow
so my eyes can dry before you arrive
in my lungs
are every memory
of smoky afternoons
upon your balcony
Track Name: Static
Aspirin and sleeping pills
peculiar pricks and pretty girls
all interested in you now that you're gone
light another cigarette
stare at the suns silhouette
sing to every tear that you drop
these days your feeling sad again
you stuff your feelings in your head
so you don't have to think about what's real
wrap your body in the sheets
of your bed before you sleep
so you can close your eyes and forget

well i'm growing up to be
a skeleton
i'm growing up to be
my only friend

Baby i miss yah
honey i miss yah
darling i miss yah
baby i miss yah
baby i miss yah
baby i miss yah
baby i miss yah

I feel just like static
and my life keeps on falling apart
why can't i go back
to before i felt this pain in my heart
I feel just like static
and my life keeps on falling apart
why can't i go back
to before i felt this pain in my heart

well i'm growing up to be
a skeleton
i'm growing up to be
my only friend

Having a heart
just gets in my way
so i drown it out
with static every day
Having a heart
just gets in my way
so i drown it out
with static every day

Baby i miss yah
honey i miss yah
darling i miss yah
baby i miss yah
baby i miss yah
baby i miss yah
baby i miss yah

I feel just like static
and my life keeps on falling apart
why can't i go back
to before i felt this pain in my heart
I feel just like static
and my life keeps on falling apart
why can't i go back
to before i felt this pain in my heart

well i'm growing up to be
a skeleton
i'm growing up to be
my only friend
well i'm growing up to be
a skeleton
i'm growing up to be
my only friend
