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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.
