Track Name: Push It
I don't want to be here
I could tell you that one hundred times or more
But you wouldn't listen, would you?
With this thorn in my side
I will take the flight at midnight
To escape the fears that you have christened deadly

Push it all away
Push it all away
Push it all away
Let it slide
Let it slide away
Push it all away
Push it all away

Melatonin, nicotine
One last call for us if you know
If you know what I mean, and you do
You don't remember kissing me so hard
Across the bridge at midnight
But I swear to Christ it's all I think about now
It's all I think about

Push it all away
Push it all away
Push it all away
Let it slide
Let it slide away
Push it all away
Push it all away

Let it slide
'Cause I just might
Let it die
Track Name: Gutted
Splintered glass is falling, falling from your eyes
I am only speaking in half truths and whole lies
I know that I’m sorry, sorry for betraying
All that I can do now is sit right down and wait

But she’s coming down the hall
And I’m here to catch her fall
There’s time to heal but I still feel
Nothing, nothing at all

Love is wasted on the youthful and naive
They're forever wearing hearts upon their sleeves
I know that I’m selfish and I cannot get out
All that I can do now is sink into the crowd

But she’s coming down the hall
And I’m here to catch her fall
There’s time to heal but I still feel
Nothing, nothing at all

Could I be the one to get out?
Paralyzed by my own self doubt
Could I be the one?
Could I be the one?
Now I’m just sat here gutted

But she’s coming down the hall
And I’m here to catch her fall
There’s time to heal but I still feel
Nothing, nothing at all
Track Name: Your Rose
When you walked away
I just let you leave
Like a prisoner
of my own fate

So I watched you go
Lightyears down the road
Now I’m falling like
A sinking stone

I want you to know
I can only be
Your rose
And I can only grow
For the perfect love
That I let go

Gotta get myself away from my head these days
Gotta get myself away from my head
I gotta get away

Another wasted day
Sat here on display
Like an animal
Just captured prey

Stuck inside this cage
Anger turns to rage
Cannot calm myself
I pushed you away

I want you to know
Only I can be
Your rose
And I can only grow
For the perfect love
That I let go

Gotta get myself away from my head these days
Gotta get myself away from my head
I gotta get away

…always be your rose
Track Name: Concertina
Take your time today
In hopes to make things better
Take your time today
Take your time
when you want to say
That you would like to make things better
Take your time
when you want to say

That means you will find
That means you will find a way
That means you will find a way

Hoping for one last caress
A concertina with an evil hex
Romantic calm in deep distress
Take your time when you want to say
That you know it cannot get better
Take your time
And slowly walk away

That means you will find
That means you will find a way
That means you will find a way
Track Name: Fade
She walks out in the moonlight
She walks out of control
She steps into a picture frame
A postcard from the road

Golden hair, pale blue eyes
Cigarette stains on her smile
Take my hand, little girl
Pull me into your grey world

'Cause I get high on pain
And you've got demons in your brain
All those words I couldn't say
Will just linger 'til they fade

I'll bottle up this moonshine
Like memories of you
Been busy burning photographs
And hiding from the truth

Another glass of your red wine
A finger tracing down your spine
How good it feels to be loved
Even by a wounded dove

'Cause I get high on pain
And you've got demons in your brain
All those words I couldn't say
Will just linger
'Cause I get high on pain
And I know you feel the same
All those words I couldn't say
Will just linger

As I hear the train approaching
I can tell that I'm not welcome
Will you still take me home tonight?
Take me home

'Cause I get high on pain
And you've got demons in your brain
All those words I couldn't say
Will just linger
'Cause I get high on pain
And I know you feel the same
All those words I couldn't say
Will just linger 'til they fade
Track Name: Only Haters Left Alive
God gave me one direction
And it's fucking forward
Fucking forward
God didn't give me a name

A patron saint of sleep and shame
Followed closely by a chaser of fame

Only haters left alive
Only haters in your life
Hell yeah

God gave me one direction
And it's fucking forward
Fucking forward
I took two steps back into the flame

A spider web beneath your skin
Left shoulder blade
14 year old sin
Nothing's changed

Only haters left alive
Only haters in your life
Hell yeah

Only haters left alive
Only haters in your life
Track Name: Rifle
I hear the sirens in the night
As they fade away into
The East River
And the Meadowlands

You call to say goodbye
I close my eyes and dream
I’m standing inside
my old house again

Try to keep the camera steady
But I’m too weak, it’s all too heavy now

How was your trip out west?
Did you take the 66?
The sky out there
just stretches on for miles

Back here in Manhattan
I’m trapped by melting steel
They say that jet fuel
burns so easily

Try to hold the rifle steady
But I’m too weak, it’s all too heavy

It's all too heavy now

It’s all too heavy
It’s all too heavy now
It’s all too heavy now
It’s all too heavy now

Try to hold the rifle steady
But I’m too weak, it’s all too heavy
