Track Name: I Faked It
I Faked It

I faked it
now that I look back
from the very first kiss
I knew it wouldn’t last

yeah I faked it
from the song to the dance
opened up my eyes
I saw that chance

and I took it
didn’t care that you would hate me
shooting fish inside a barrel
taking candy from a baby
I faked it

when I left you
you were stumbling in the dark
I’m not sorry that it hurt
when I took your heart apart

‘cause I liked it
I remember how it felt
when I fell in love with someone
and they hit below the belt

so I hit you
and I knew that you would hate me
shooting fish inside a barrel
yeah it’s never been so easy
I faked

I faked it
it was never you and me
when I said it was forever
I was lying through my teeth

for example
when I said it wouldn’t hurt
there was not a chance in hell
it was ever gonna work

to be truthful
the pleasure didn’t last
before I took a drink
the ice had melted in the glass

now it’s empty
and you and I are through
the only thing I wanna do
is point the gun at you
so I fake it
Track Name: Take Me Outside
Take Me Outside

take me outside
and blow my fucking head off
with your eyes, it’s alright
I guess I deserved it this time
well, maybe next time it’ll be better

at the watering hole
I go to fill my soul
but I’ll probably end up
on the stripper’s pole
in this sea of birds and bees
I go unnoticed
I’ll have another please

I will not last a year if I’m alone
I count the cars as they pass by my home
take me outside
take me outside

take me outside
‘cause I’m gonna get mine
I just keep on thinking, it’s a matter of time
well I can’t stand the wait
is the party almost over

I will not last a year if I’m alone out here
I count the cars as they pass by my home

so many things to do
but look who you’re talking to
back to my ways when I hang up the phone
take me outside

‘cause there’s booze in my veins
and blood on the floor
and I don’t think my body can take anymore

take me outside
and blow my fucking head off
Track Name: Telephones
Telephones

I only talk to you by telephone
and rarely see you on my weekends home
I’d rather sit and watch my television shows
you know as well as me we’re not in love

can’t help but think of all the times you’ve said goodbye
never once did you feel the need to force a cry
no that’d be too much to ask, movie pusher movie pusher
I hate baby, I hate it baby

I have a strong heart but you play too rough
you listen to techno I hate that stuff
at people’s parties hey we don’t say much

but when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

I spend our peaceful hours peaking at your watch
it never used to be cold sitting on your roof top
but now I feel the weather
our fights have fucked our shelter
our fights have fucked our shelter

but when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

I only talk to you by telephones
rarely see you on my weekends home
you’d rather sit and watch the movies that you push
you know as well as me we’re not in love

can’t help but think about to talk about our lives
and how you said you’d never had a better time
oh you used to make my Mondays Saturday’s
I hate it baby, I hate it baby

but when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

and when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

yeah when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side
Track Name: Mountains To The Mess
Mountains to the Mess

walking outside in the rain and the snow
I don’t understand your life
so I guess I must be slow
but if I was slow, then how would I know
put a quarter in my mouth
wind me up and watch me go

take a little time to watch the clock hands fly
and you wonder where I am
and to who I’m telling lies
well I’m outside in the rain and the snow
you can’t understand my mind
but it’s not for you to know

I’m on top of the world
who put me here
I wanna go back home
have I made myself clear

I remember looking at the stars in the sky
and connecting all the dots
laying on the grass at night
counting to a million for the very first time
when I got half way
I couldn’t finish the line

I’m on top of the world
don’t leave me here
I wanna go back home
have I made myself clear

suppress and get depressed, I’m in my favourite dress
we get together every Sunday and add mountains to the mess
you’re a good friend, I will not give you away
I will not give you away
Track Name: Field Song
Field Song

I fell in a field, today was ok
I stayed in the leaves, the grass and the hay
and the sun went down like it always does
I slept with the ghosts, ‘till the morning flood

awoke to the rain, the afternoon came
are you gone, are you gone, it still looks the same
same room, same door
same, same, same
all alone in the woods, just me and the rain

I know it’s true what they say about us
I know it’s already over
my love won’t wait for you, or anybody else
I know it’s already over

when you’re ice cold you feel no pain
so tell me off I’ll go away
when you’re ice cold you feel no pain
so tell me off I’ll go away

I know it’s true what they say about us
I know it’s already over
my love won’t wait for you, or anybody else
I know it’s already over

I know it’s true what they say about us
I know it’s already over
my love won’t wait for you, or anybody else
I know that you know that it’s over
Track Name: Untouchable
Untouchable

stars are shining I feel fine, all my lives are intertwined
every love I’ve ever known, don’t come to me leave me alone
don’t you get too comfortable, I’ve become untouchable

untouchable
untouchable, don’t touch me
untouchable
untouchable, don’t touch me

walking on the street at night, everyone’s asleep inside
keep on dreaming like you should, just never in my neighbourhood
I can’t tell when it’s too much, I can’t take it when we touch

untouchable
untouchable, don’t touch me
untouchable
untouchable, don’t touch me

my arms
my legs
my lips
we slip
my hands
my face
this place, unreachable
my heart, untouchable

untouchable
untouchable, don’t touch me
untouchable
untouchable, don’t touch me
Track Name: Pretty Things
Pretty Things

pretty things
I can’t be bothered with these pretty things
they scoop me up when I’m unhappy
they take and take until there’s nothing

but I don’t learn
I make the same mistakes and old wrong turns
it’s like a bee sting or a slapping
it shakes you up ‘till you are nothing
it shakes you up ‘till you’re a pretty thing

pretty thing
I’m not affected by your pretty face
this is the last time I come running
the ghosts and hellish lows are coming

watch and learn
your empty head is like a trigger
I fill it up when no one’s looking
the string inside my chest keeps pulling
I fill you up ‘cause you’re a pretty thing
Track Name: In My Dreams
In My Dreams

I’m gonna throw a rope
will you be there to catch it
we’ll pull two halves together

will you visit me in dreams
haunt me in my sleep
can you make it better

my heart’s on the line
for someone that isn’t mine
am I wasting my time

I’m beginning to think you only exist in my dreams
waiting on a phone call, wearing out your memory
where have you been

distance makes the heart grow fond
skipping stones across the pond
will you be there to catch them

I see you everywhere I go
why does time pass by so slow
when you’re waiting on something

I’m beginning to think you only exist in my dreams
waiting on a phone call, wearing out your memory
where have you been

I’m beginning to think you only exist in my dreams
waiting on a postcard, tearing out your memory
floating to sea

watching the clouds pass by
I’m trying to make sense of the sky
I close my eyes and I fly

I’m beginning to think you only exist in my dreams
waiting on a phone call, wearing out your memory
where have you been

I’m beginning to think you only exist in my dreams
waiting on a postcard, tearing out your memory
floating to sea

I’m beginning to think you only exist in my dreams
Track Name: Wind Will Blow
Wind Will Blow

I know that good is what you are, even from a far
I like the things that you create
and when you came inside right then, well I knew you were a friend
no matter what I do or say

and oh if the wind will blow
then you can believe it’s so

you’re running through me like a blade
but if happiness should fade, I had it once and that’s enough
and it is true you are the one, but as clear as it’s become
we hide behind the window pane, scared and stupid

oh if the wind will blow
then you can believe it’s so

you run right through me like a blade
but if happiness should fade, I had it once and that’s enough
Track Name: Dancing
Dancing

dancing in the bar, dancing in the street
running with the headlights, clenching all my teeth
gotta settle down, not sure if I can
hadn’t thought of leaving and I didn’t have a plan

well I’ve never felt this light, my head feels like a star
it burns behind my eyeballs, it’s lighting up the dark
I used to feel like twenty dollars rolled up in a cab
I knew I was worth something but the future made me sad

all the times I’ve dreamed
to wake up with nothing
you’re the sweetest dream
‘cause I don’t have to sleep

we’ll always be dancing, I’ll make sure of that
and running with the headlights, trying to catch a cab
sleeping through the mornings, playing in the stars
yelling things at strangers
look how lucky we are
look how lucky we are

all the times I’ve dreamed
to wake up with nothing
you’re the sweetest dream
‘cause I don’t have to sleep

all the times I’ve dreamed
to wake up with nothing
you’re the sweetest dream
