about

Nearly 3 years in the making and taking a departure from the many-musicians approach of 2016's "Honest Crimes", this album is a two man collaboration and the most honest, open and real piece of music we've done yet.

Track Name: Bored
So, I'm sat here again
Making mental notes while I count to ten
And so, a day rolls by
Slowly rots the apple of my eye

Well I get bored
I get bored
I get bored
I get bored

So, here we go again
Making up the time until the time when
We go, we go alone
The only time I grow is when I'm on my own

But I get bored
I get bored
I get bored
I get bored

So, I lie here awake
My heart is in my mouth and my body aches
Sleep, just wanna sleep
But the demons from my mirror slowly creep

'til I get bored
I get bored
I get bored
I get bored
Track Name: My friends on the wall
I've got these pictures on my wall
Of people that I've lost along the way
I wish I could see them all
Not for long, just a day

In loving memory they sit
Forever in our hearts and in the past
And I'll remember them a bit
The blur is strange as time will pass

I love you all, my friends
My friends on the wall

I've got these writings on my wall
From people that are with me every day
I hope I get to keep them all
And cherish them forever and a day

I love you, my friends
My friends on the wall
Track Name: A certain kind
Once again I'm gearing up to tell you that I'm sorry,
For all the times I've ever let you down.
I've thought of stories long and wild, none of them are true,
To try to break the silence that I've found.

Blurry eyed I slur and maybe tell my friends I'm lonely,
But that's OK 'cause they're all lonely too.
I wish I had the words to put down these feelings that I keep,
I guess another drink will have to do.

But I know I'm just too far gone,
For anyone like you.

There's a certain kind of sadness when words are never spoke,
Lucky that I'm smiling all the time.
There's a certain kind of loneliness when all you do is choke,
Lucky for me I'm talking all the time.
I'll never cross that line.

I'm colder now than ever since the door was sealed shut,
The one with all the gaps around the sides.
I'm warmed and I'm even less lonely than I was,
Still my heart is blue and I don't know why.

But I know I'm just too far gone,
For anyone like you.
Maybe if I just got lost,
You would be renewed.

There's a certain kind of sadness when words are never spoke,
Lucky that I'm smiling all the time.
There's a certain kind of loneliness when all you do is choke,
Lucky for me I'm talking all the time.
I'll never cross that line.

But I know I'm just too far gone,
For anyone like you.
Maybe if I just got lost,
You would be renewed.

For me that'd do.
Track Name: Up in the sky
If I was older would you return?
What if I told you that I'd never learn

If I was someone you never knew
Would believe me if I said I loved you?

Is your leap of faith a leap you can make?
Are you believing that I'll keep you safe?

What if I'm someone, someone like you?
I hope you believe me, I promise that I'm true

And if all your riches burn
You'll find me, you'll find me at every turn
And if all you embers fly
You'll find me, you'll find me up in the sky
Up in the sky

Come see my soldiers, they're waiting for you
A war might be waging, but not between us two
'cause you tick all my boxes, and I'm fighting you see
Just trying to give you a life fighting next to me

And if all your riches burn
You'll find me, you'll find me at every turn
And if all you embers fly
You'll find me, you'll find me up in the sky
Up in the sky
Track Name: I know you
I have it all to thank you for
You just don't know what it means to me
And even though I make you watch me fall
I know you wanna catch me

These words they never quite make it out
'cause you don't know what they've done to me
And when my whisper becomes a shout
I know you wanna hear me
I know you wanna hear me

The day don't last like they used to
I think it's that, that really scares me
I seem to panic over what to do
I know you wanna calm me
I know you wanna calm me

I have it all to thank you for
You just don't know what it means to me
And even though I make you watch me fall
I know you wanna catch me
I know you wanna catch me

These words they never quite make it out
'cause you don't know what they've done to me
And when my whisper becomes a shout
I know you wanna hear me
I know you wanna hear me
I know you wanna hear me
I know you wanna hear me

I have it all to thank you for
Track Name: Alone again
Alone again
Alone again

I try to write these songs so no-one can hear me scream
I try do these things to block out the inbetween
I try to waste more time between here and the end
Alone again

Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Alone again

I wanna be someone but I don't really understand
What it is that makes me float in the quicksand
I guess I'll take my time in the land of my pretend
Along again, again, again

Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Track Name: Winter
Winter's here again
And I'm not sure if I can brave the cold when
It's warm enough inside to hide

Maybe I should break a leg
I heard it's good advice to give to
People that don't know when to stop

'cause I'll never be on top

All my friends are these four walls
You've show me to the wrecking ball but
I'm not a fan of throwing stones you know

So I'm staying home
yes I'm staying home
'cause I think the winter's cold
So I'm staying home

And I'm getting old
Yes I'm getting old
And all my friends are getting old
So I'm staying home

Winter's here again
And I'm not sure if I can brave the cold when
It's warm enough inside to hide
Track Name: The race to the bottom
They say it's a race to the bottom
I'm looking down from the top
I hope my heart's not forgotten
'cause it's all that I've got

And if I face my fears
I might not know when to stop
I hope my heart keeps beating
'cause it's all that I've got

They say it's a race to the bottom
And my bottle drips dry
I know that you'll be besotted
With someone else in your life

And so I face my fears
'cause my world doesn't stop
I know my heart loves beating
And you for you it won't stop

So don't take my running shoes
We'll find our way back home
Where you'll stay for one more day
And I'll be just so
