Inhale/Exhale (free) 07:22
At the end everything goes back in the box You chase after those pieces of paper that you thought undid the locks You played the game, you learned the smile, and to flatter when you lie So you can have a bigger room to sit in when you wait to die And you waste some more time Fritter away your hours Live like you won't grow old And hide your tears in the shower Never ever gonna grow old Never gonna break the routine Never learn from what you've seen One day your skin will grow cold

Good clean fun is what we like to have Don't have time for any of life's drags I got my tight print shirt to get the girls all wet And if she's fucked up drunk then even better yet Good clean fun is the name of the game With our hair gel right so we all look the same Don't have time for anyone but me No time for responsibility In the morning we don't care what we've done All we care about is good clean fun All we care about is good clean fun Alcohol helps to validate me Powders wash out insecurity Day time is such a double drag Working comes with too many snags Good clean fun goes up my nose I wonder where the food money goes Little girl we like your style Come play with us for a little while In the morning we don't care what we've done All we care about is good clean fun All we care about is good clean fun

Don't care that you don't buy me things But the cause of your rejection Lies in that woman's diamond ring And your misplaced affection I was once your victory prize From your second divorce Now you can't look me in the eye I hope your guilt is the cause Here she comes Here she comes She's the apple of your eye She's the apple of your eye Here she comes Here she comes She's the apple of your eye When I leave I won't say goodbye Oh no Second class citizen Living in my own home I eat dinner in my room And spend my days all alone Oh she's stealing all of your things And running round town It's only cause she fucks you well That you don't see that you should put her down Here she comes Here she comes She's the apple of your eye She's the apple of your eye Here she comes Here she comes She's the apple of your eye When I leave I won't say goodbye

Living at Night (free) 03:57
Living at night isn't helping my complexion I'm just a symptom of a social infection It's only part of the generational condition Dreams of the lazy never come to fruition Apathetic Disconnected Living at night Apathetic Disconnected Living at night Maybe go out, maybe stay home Maybe just stare at my telephone Maybe play records and stare at the wall Maybe get drunk so I don't feel small Apathetic Disconnected Living at Night Apathetic Disconnected Living at night Childhood is over

Fear is the root of man's self destruction And without fear there is no blame Life fits a pre-determined path And every day it looks the same Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Solipsistically find an escape route The end of fear hangs from the rafters Realistically those left behind Feel emptier from hereafter It's not the same as it ever was For them it's not the same as it ever was

Damage 03:38
Bipolar disorder cut with cocaine can lead to an unbeatable high But the sweet relief in powder form's just a reminder that the comedown is nigh A routine act like cleaning your teeth can quickly get too much to manage The treatment only feeds the disease, it'll never repair the damage I can see the change, you became rearranged, now it's part of your identity A crippling roller coaster ride, your will is no longer free All you can think about at work or as you're walking home through the park Is being able to put your mask back on and disappear into the dark

Is This It 02:44
Hey, you alright? Yeah, not too bad, just tired No, haven't seen her in ages. Weird. What about her parents, her dad any better? Eugh, how long for? Well, I hope he's ok Listen, thanks for calling. I've just been in this mess, just doing nothing. Staring at my computer. It's nice to finally talk to someone for once. It makes a change from the same old shit just over and over Is this it?

No Goodbye 04:22
Someone great went away today In a quiet and inevitable way I was with a friend when the phone call came Now it's not the same She gave me someone to hold But still everything went cold I could hear my mother's tears on the phone Each moment, more alone He'll live on in my memory Not immortal but dying with me And in my mind's eye I can see The man who fixed all of my toys Who was there when I was just a boy The man who eased my parent's pain When they struggled to get by again Yes, the memory still remains And I know some day we all die So I promise that I won't cry But if your daughters said that they would lie For them, there is no goodbye
