This morning I’ve been feeling blue I keep staring at the clock I’m just hoping for something new To lift me from the fog Perhaps another cup of coffee A brew to get me through Perhaps I’ll go outside today and drink in the view But I don’t know what I’m hoping for I never see past that door But I don’t know what I’m hoping for I never get past that door It’s raining in the afternoon There’s thunder drumming down I’m lost in battle with myself and no hope for common ground I can’t bear this tedium I can’t bear myself Everything is spiralling and I need to get out But I don’t know what I’m hoping for I never see past that door But I don’t know what I’m hoping for I never get past that door

Now You Know 02:33
Have you asked yourself, If the blame lays at your door? You can scream and shout that it’s not fair But it’s no-one else’s fault that you fucked up your whole life So now you know We all have hopes and dreams Things are rarely as they seem Yeah now you know It’s hard to walk that line And we all get lost sometimes Now you know Now you know You’re not alone I know where you are Cause I’ve been there before Then I came to find I’m the grand architect Standing, match in hand, on the ashes of my life So now you know We all have hopes and dreams Things are rarely as they seem Yeah now you know It’s hard to walk that line And we all get lost sometimes Now you know Now You know You’re not alone

35 02:26
I haven’t had a drink in 3 months and now I think…
 “Maybe I’m getting better?” but I’ve got so far to go And I walk these winding streets full of hazy memories yeah, there’s plenty of things I regret but most I can’t remember

 And I know, I know, that I’m lucky to be alive And I hope, I hope, that I live to see 35 And now when boredom strikes I toe a different line Because in this life I’ve been dealt I need to find something else 
And there’s better ways to spend my time than being drunk and lonely because I exist to create And I know, I know, that I’m lucky to be alive And I hope, I hope, that I live to see 35 The day you walked away should have been a sign But my mental health wouldn’t let me see the light One morning I woke to realise
 this is no way to live my life I need to stop to survive Although my life has changed don’t despair 
I’ll be a Drunken Rambling until I die

Sleep Tight 04:51
She says “Where have you been all night? 
I’ve been waiting for you to arrive I’m five minutes from calling the police”
 I just shrug “I need some sleep” 
I can’t remember a single thing past my first drink

 I never wanted to be the kind of man lost in a dream 
A nightmare of thoughts crushing down on me 
I’m not the man I thought I’d be

 She packed up her things She said “You don’t love me, you just love the bottle”
 I had to agree And it brings me some peace to finally have that out in the open Because I need to be alone so no-one sees me dying in the gutter This is no passing storm… This time it feels like forever I never wanted to be the kind of man lost in a dream
 A nightmare of thoughts crushing down on me
 I’m not the man I thought I’d be Farewell, sleep tight Farewell, sleep tight I never wanted to be the kind of man lost in a dream
 A nightmare of thoughts crushing down on me
 I’m not the man I thought I’d be

Hourglass 02:16
There’s no avoiding the cracks in the pavement No denying the lines upon your brow The slow decay of age, yet distinguished somehow Why the battle to turn back the clock? Don’t you think you’ve had your lot? You’ve reached the end of the queue, it’s time for someone new I too like to reminisce About all the things I’ve missed All the words left unspoken And promises sadly broken It’s not the end, there’s time to make amends To put some things right Clocks are like ropes tied to our throats They pull us down choking Unless we have the will to fight So my friends breathe deeply tonight I too like to reminisce About all the things I’ve missed All the words left unspoken And promises sadly broken But I know, the best is yet to come So keep holding on to your precious time

It’s 5am, I’m up with my shoes on again Work’s a drag but it’s somehow keeping me sane Anxiety’s been clouding my mind for days Add this summer heat, I haven’t had a moments sleep Out into the night, I feel at ease Soaring these darkened streets, as morning breaks I know, when I reach my destination I’ll fall back down ‘cause if happiness is fleeting who can put faith in it? and so… I guess all I’m asking for is a little understanding But you said no, so fuck you too, I’m out. To another day lost toiling for some faceless corporate greed With millions in takings but hardly anything for me I want to call it quits but it pays the rent And routine is exactly what I need I guess all I’m asking for’s a little understanding But you said no, so fuck you too, I’m out. I don’t think you understand where I’m coming from Or my daily strife I can’t do this dance no more I’m waiting for the rain to fall and wash my whole life out

Cannonball 03:48
So I set my course like a cannonball Hurtling through the sky towards the ocean floor As the masses gather to watch the fall A sense of loneliness envelops all And in the depths of my own self-doubt 
I wonder what I’m all about Is this art or some cry for help? And on the empty highway, miles of endless road stretch out of view of the marching thrall But on the horizon a single crow Swoops from above to save us all And in the depths of my own self-doubt 
I wonder what I’m all about Is this art or some cry for help?

Rudderless 03:28
I hope you’re well, wherever you are I hope you’ve found some peace, some light in the dark I found my soul in the songs I write I found my heart on this beat-up guitar But I don’t want to go anywhere tonight I’m not slowing down I’ve just found a direction You might say I live life my way But I’ve been so lost I couldn’t fight my addiction 

 I miss you too, and our misspent youth All the fuck up shit we’ve both went though But somewhere down the road we both got lost You always had my back and I love you for that But I don’t want to go anywhere tonight I’m not slowing down I’ve just found some direction You might say I’ve lived life my way But I’ve been so lost I couldn’t fight my addiction 

 In the darkness just hold on, it’s almost dawn I can feel it pushing/pulling me down, but it’s almost gone

Tides 03:38
I read in the paper about the awful thing you’d done Summer was ending, the days were not so long Swim out to the shoreline for a moments peace Singing for the springtime, for the release

 I read in the paper that you’re not coming home
 Silence at the bus stop sitting here alone Run for the last time, run from the night Run for the last time, run from the night
