Track Name: God You're A Tool
We trade our lines on the phone
Play this game out just so you know
You’re a fucking tool and it shows
There’s really no excuse for your soul

I tell her lies so she’ll bend
Taint her love, her soul. I come at the end
God you’re just a tool for my gain
We don’t need a clue to solve my shame

No one here has won themselves a crown
It’s in my head but
I find myself the enemy to love
This grave beneath the sea
Do we feel each other differently now
Only now

This debate is yours, there’s no way
I could win the war
Leave it on me
I am your tool to hit
Cover up that bruise slick with spit

No one here has won themselves a crown
It’s in my head but
I find myself the enemy to love
This grave beneath the sea
Do we feel each other differently now
Only now
Somehow my feet are lead but
I find myself the enemy to love
This grave of you and me
Do we feel each other differently now
Only now

I tell these lies (The enemy, you and me)
I know she will bend (The enemy, you and me)
She’ll bend, she’ll bend
Track Name: Come On Sing Out
It’s time to fall
The lines are drawn
And the fire in my heart is gone
Come on by
Live or die
We are bound to this road we pave

So come on, sing out
For the love that you bear
Though we can’t stop this feeling
Dispersed in the air

I realise
I’m just like you
No different from the rest, no excuse
We build this house
With bricks that break
Beyond the sea, can we run from our fate

To paradise, a wish away
In the light our curse would break
In this moment can I make
The difference my heart craves
Or will I be the dream drifting away?

Oh oh ohh

So come on, sing out
For the love that you bear
Though we can’t stop this feeling
Dispersed in the air

So come on, sing out
For the love that you bear

Oh oh ohh
Track Name: Overboard
I was overlooked
I was too complacent
Ten miles from the shore
Only then you note Iʼm gone

I was so loved
You struggle to protect me
This life is a dream
If I wake up, I wonʼt believe

Get over yourself, love (love)
This vision is flawed
Stop chasing romance, love (love)
ʻCos weʼre over, weʼre overboard

Waters coming closer
The waters and lies

Your careless hair is a psalm
Come string me up in a noose
You filled this heart with thorns
Now thereʼs nothing left to lose

Go fuck yourself love (love)
Youʼre a bitch in heat
Sweat drops on the floor
And we tear from the lack of sleep

This is all for naught
This is what you need
See you everything love
Disappear into the deep

Waters coming closer
The waters and lies

O-o-ver, overboard

And itʼs such old news
But weʼre still confused
Of our meaning
To one another

And Iʼm sick of your lies
And Iʼm sick of this game
Where you promise me
All of my dreams

Weʼre overboard
Track Name: Under Your Scar
Someone must be hidden
Under your scar
The pain relinquished but not very far
I’d like to know the secret
Behind your hate
But everyone knows the angle that you play

You don’t see
Oh you don’t see
All you’ve done all these years
Adds up to nothing

You’re so selfish
You believe that your kind
Were given the earth to rule and to mind
The rest of us are just
Animals on parade
I’ll let you name me, whatever the blame

Have I upset you?
Have I upset you now?
You broke your foot and
Your limp proclaims it aloud
So give up the drama
You’ve won the game
You’ve pushed us all out
You’ve pushed us all out

You don’t see
Oh you don’t see
All you’ve done all these years
Adds up to nothing
You don’t see
Oh you don’t see
All you’ve done all these years
All this fighting, all these tears adds up to nothing
