Track Name: Sticks & Stones
your love can't fix me now
don't let me wear you down

am i out of line?
or is it just 'cause i
said i don't have time
for yours or mine
our problems combined
compromise we'll find
somewhere on the borderline

just for today
please, please let me breathe
just for one day
please, please leave me be

is this the last time?
or can i learn from my
years gone by
she said just let me try
so i'll sleep here in my clothes
and start fires in my car
fuelling them with bitterness
we'll be warm all night

just for today
please, please let me breathe
just for one day
please, please leave me be
Track Name: Overdone
you still here, love?
thought you'd have left by now
holding on to something that's hurting you
have you had your fun?
now tell me, are you done?
my words are burning you like an august sun

so tell me
there's nothing, nothing that i could have done
my heart feels like i'm ready to run
i'm sick of running through the same routine
when it's just something that's wrong with me
the same thing, same thing will happen again
same words, just said in a different way
sick of running through the same routine
so just admit what's wrong with me

these simple words
how could they be enough?
left pining hopeful that this will just leave on its own

there's just
something, nothing that i could have done
my heart feels like i'm ready to run
sick of running through the same routine
'cause it's just something that's wrong with me
i've been hoping it's over for sure
my eyes don't look the same any more
sick of running in the same old street
where the pavement's staring back at me

something, something that feels overdone
my heart feels like it's ready to run
i'm sick of running through the same routine
when it's just something that's wrong with me
something, something that i can't explain
same words, just said in a different way
sick of running in the same routine
when it's just something that's wrong with me
Track Name: Three
another dream i've had before
my muscles freeze, i hit the floor
my stomach turns
i lie awake, it starts again
can't break these circles in my head
they torment my mind

this is all that there is left
my family's aging
and i stay in bed
i am giving you my best
this year is fading
into the rest

taste of blood should keep me grounded
but my pieces stay in parts
these doubts are not unfounded
and they're picking me apart
my eyes are glazing over
my thoughts have swallowed me whole
repeating i am broken
it's all that i know

this is all that i have left
this chance i'm wasting
i'm locked in my head
i am giving it my best
my brain's decaying
and it wants me dead
