Track Name: Standing
You slow me down
There's a reason I don't hang around any longer
There's a feel in town
That I can't get over and over and I've been waiting for a while now
Matter of time
Til I'll be standing in that dream of mine
It's been a while since I paid five pounds
So I could go down
Waiting for the morning to come back around

I see now
Don't get me standing where you want me to be
And somehow
I'm still right here

Can you justify
Spending money as the days go by
Cause I know that you're insatiable
When it comes to
Buying and spending and showing me everything that your
Money can buy
But can you look me in the eye
And tell me that you're satisfied
Could you tell me anything

Don't stop now
They've got you everywhere they want you to be
Don't tell me now

I see now
You've got me standing where you want me to be
And somehow
I'm still right here

I'm still right here x4
Track Name: The Real Me
This situation makes me lazy
This excitation makes me crazy and all I can do is wait for it to pass
I try to hold my tongue but my words slip right out my mouth
The funny thing is that beforehand
I'm sane as anything
If I could only keep that while we're playing in the band
I get so out of hand
But I just say what comes into my head

I know the reason why
I can relate to you but we don't have the time
When we're adding lib I don't have anything that rhymes
If you could see the real me you'd change your mind

I thought I'd found someone to talk to
But I just found a door to walk through
And there's no way to get back now
Waiting in the cold for you
I know it's true

You know the reason why
I can relate to you but we don't have the time
When we're adding lib I don't have anything that rhymes
If you could see the real me you'd change your mind

I know the reason why
I can relate to you but we don't have the time
I don't have anything that rhymes
If you could see the real me you'd change your mind
Track Name: Anxiety
Wake up in the morning
Feeling like a stranger
Filling up my head with fear of all the danger
Don't you know it's easy
Easy to be terrified
Easy to be influenced by what is on the outside

I know it's always something different
Always something new
Can't see what's going on outside me
Just outside of you

This anxiety has got a hold of you
But I know that it's not true

Tell you all my secrets
Cause you are my alibi
Making myself see-through
Jenny is a gemini
Talking in a new way
Somebody is listening
I see the cloud's perimeter
Even when it isn't glistening
Glistening, glistening
Nobody is listening


I know it's always something different
Always something new
Can't see what's going inside of me
Just outside of you

Pacing around the bedroom
Looking out the window
Biting on my fingernails
What if they come in though
Ripping up our property
Never let it get to me
Living with a strong heart
Never will pretend to be
Anything but stronger
Stronger than I used to be
I could never calm down
If somebody sat next to me
But I'm getting better now
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna sacrifice
What could be a better life

This anxiety has got a got of you
But I know that it's not true


I know it's always something different
Always something new
Can't see what's going inside of me
Just outside of you

This anxiety has got a got of you
But I know that it's not true
This anxiety has got a got of you
But I know that it's not true
Track Name: '53
In a future where the world is dark
Humming sounds around the fields
No one every got to turn the machines off
Before they went
In a bunker in the broken city
Crowds of people separated by the walls
No one ever wants to go outside
Especially him, and he said:

Keep me informed about the future
Let me know what's going on outside
I've been sitting in this room for one day too long
I don't wanna go outside x4

Tried escaping but there's no more chemicals
Tried to eat but there's no food left on the outside
Tried to ask but there's no more questions
He can scream but there's on one listening
Radiation and poison are everywhere
Cameras work but there's no one sitting at the screens
Weather's gone so he's down at the waterhole
Long nights in '53 he said:

Keep me informed about the future
Let me know what's going on outside
I've been sitting in this room for one day too long
I don't wanna go outside x4

Track Name: Always
Close your eyes
Fall asleep
Dream of secrets that you keep
If you want
You can tell
And if you don't it's just as well
Everyday, every morning we wake up
In our beds
When we leave 'cross the sea
Make sure you stand closer to me this time
This time
This time
This time

And I, I wanna feel this way always
It happens once a day these days
I know I do

All the things that we say
I used to think took away
From the moments of our days
But now I know it's okay
I lay in bed, close my eyes
And in time I realise
All the things that we said could have been misread
Misread
Misread
Misread


And I, I wanna feel this way always
It happens once a day these days
I know it's true
It fills me up with things to learn
Cause if I always waited my turn
I would still be in the same place
And I, I wanna feel this way always
It happens once a day these days
I know it's true
It fills me up with things to learn
Cause if I always waited my turn
I would still be in the same place
