Track Name: Opener? I Hardly Know Her!
(Instrumental)
Track Name: All Mess
I’m doing time and my prison is this town
Can’t wait to get out, can’t wait to burn it to the ground
When my sentence is over, I’m gonna turn this place over, and leave my mark
All over the place, you’ll be seeing my face

Now all I want to go to is anywhere
I would do anything just to get there
For all the time you spend staring at the wall
Cos when you think about it there’s nothing here at all

I’m getting sick of walking down the same streets
And driving down the same roads
And working in the same job
There’s gotta be something else out there

Now all I want to go to is anywhere
I would do anything just to get there
For all the time you spend staring at the wall
Cos when you think about it there’s nothing here at all
Track Name: Last Night Punch
I'm sitting here
It's my time now
So long before
Oh three hundred
Gave up the ghost
Everyone else did
Ideas start to flow

The lining round the black cloud
Fades away as morning sunlight cracks
Around my window
Through gritted teeth
Fists tightly clenched
I declare false feelings of fineness
A sharp pain
However still tame

The grinding gears
It's not so severe

The lining round the black cloud
Fades away as morning sunlight cracks
Around my window
Through gritted teeth
Fists tightly clenched
I declare false feelings of fineness
A sharp pain
However still tame
Track Name: Insomnia
I went to bed a little earlier last night
It’s such a struggle, such a fight
My body doesn’t do what I want it to do
It’s like the ceiling is a contrast to my busy mind at night
So plain and white, I don’t feel right
This isn’t what I would call rest
During the day I can relax
I feel like I can go to sleep at any time
But in my bed it is a different story
I try to think about nothing
But how can you do that when
Even nothing, is still something

I give up, I get up
Shut my eyes only to blink
It doesn’t make me feel any better
I give up, I get up
Shut my eyes only to blink
It doesn't make me feel any better

There’s so much I could do
With all these extra hours
Spent in my bed
It’s been this way for years now
And I don’t see it changing
Until I’m dead
It’s getting bright outside now
It’s morning and I’m wide awake
My eyes are so bright
I’m losing track of everything
I’m losing track of when it’s day
And when it’s night

I give up, I get up
Shut my eyes only to blink
It doesn’t make me feel any better
I give up, I get up
Shut my eyes only to blink
It doesn't make me feel any better

I give up, I get up
Shut my eyes only to blink
It doesn’t make me feel any better
I give up, I get up
Shut my eyes only to blink
It doesn’t make me feel any better
Track Name: Heads You Win, Tails I Lose
Not everything
Is as it seems
They use you
They pull your strings

I’ll take a back seat
Take a look from the outside
While they control you
While they take over your mind

Lost in a sea of apathy
Cos thinking isn’t cool these days
There’s no such thing as variety
What do you think it is that pays

I’ll take a back seat
Take a look from the outside
While they control you
While they take over your mind

And when you dream tonight
Think to yourself
Is this what I want
And not someone else

I’ll take a back seat
Take a look from the outside
While they control you
While they take over your mind

I’ll take a back seat
Take a look from the outside
While they control you
While they take over your
