Track Name: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Let's burn brighter
Then we ever were
The sun's shining on us now
Let's go somewhere
That we've never been
And never ask how we got there
Let's never ask how we got here

I don't wanna die
In this prison
Of water, and dirt and oxygen
There's something out there calling
It's empty and cold and dead
It's nothing
It doesn't care

Let's burn brighter
Then we ever were
The sun's shining on us now
Let's go somewhere
That we've never been
And never ask how we got there
Let's never ask how we got here

I don't wanna live
Where my ancestors have died
4.6
Billion years of death
It's all in the past
It's never gonna last
It's empty and cold and dead

Let's burn brighter
Then we ever were
The sun's shining on us now
Let's go somewhere
That we've never been
And never ask how we got there
Let's never ask how we got here

I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die
Just yet
Track Name: Fairy Tales
Take me far away from
Half forgotten stories
And broken fairy tales

Break all the rules
Of rhythm
And the aesthetics
Of mass produced workshopped novelty shit

Pretend you must be better
Because you must be better
Pretend that you know better
Because you know better
You are better
Better than your shit

Take me far away from
Half forgotten stories
And lies we tell our self

Like we must be different
Because we must be different
Because if we're not different
Then why
Have we wasted all this time
On trying
To not be like them
Track Name: If I Could
If I could
I’d give myself a second chance
To make the world a little better
Make my future that much safer
If i could
Would I stand up and work harder
For a world I could be proud of
Where none of it would matter

Promises mean nothing when you’re dead
Anxiety hangs heavy on your head
So tell yourself it matters
All the shitty things you said
When you were young
When you were young

If I could
I wouldn’t hide away my feelings
And pretend that I don’t mean it
When I tell you I’m fine
If I could
I would try to make a difference
I would try to be important
At least just to myself

Promises mean nothing when you’re dead
Anxiety hangs heavy on your head
So tell yourself it matters
All the shitty things you said
When you were young
When you were young

I will lie awake
And think of what I could do better
I will lie awake
And think of the things i did wrong
I will lie awake
And wish that I could be different
I will lie awake
For far too long

Promises mean nothing when you’re dead
Anxiety hangs heavy on your head
So tell yourself it matters
All the shitty things you said
When you were young
When you were young

If i could
I would let myself get better
I would let myself get better
I would let myself get better
If i could
Track Name: Oh, fuck
I wanna get on the floor
I wanna scream til my throat hurts the next morning

I wanna drink cheap beer
I wanna punch a fascist in jaw

I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show

I wanna make some noise
I wanna still hear ringing ears on Tuesday

I wanna have some fun
I wanna lose my problems in the music

I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show

I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show
Oh, fuck
I wanna go to a punk show
Track Name: To (Each) Her (Own)
Maybe I could have this memory
Set myself free
From the tyranny of what is in the past
Because we’re moving fast towards
An exit
I'm trying to escape
I’m trying to relate to something
More than just a mental state
More than science, fiction
History or mystery
Miss-tery or mister-y?
In other words: I can’t relate
There’s a little secret
Hidden deep within us all
Honestly it’s not that important

I am who I say I am
But if I never say I am
Am I still the person who I am?
I am who I say I am
But if I never say I am
Am I still the person who I am?
I am who I say I am
But if I never say I am
Am I still the person who I am?

Realistically
I could ignore it.
I could ignore and continue with my life
I’ll probably be fine

Realistically
I can’t really ignore it
Track Name: Song for 3 am
I could try to write a song about politics
Like i ever really gave a shit
But i haven’t been an anarchist
Since i was seventeen
And to be honest i was a pretty shitty one

And i don’t know how to make a meaningful statement
On how the world should work and how to fight
Cause i haven’t bathed in weeks
And i haven’t shaved in months
Despite hating all the hair below my eyeballs

But if i am a hypocrite
Then i can own up to it
And try and leave this world a better place
Cause politics is bullshit
And i am full of it
At least i know exactly who i am
At least i know exactly who i am

I don’t know how to write about the future
Cause everyday its all the fucking same thing
But if i am to survive
If i make it out alive
I need to figure out how i will keep on fighting

But if i am a hypocrite
Then i can own up to it
And try and leave this world a better place
Cause identity is bullshit
And i am full of it
At least i know exactly who i am
At least i know exactly who i am

Oh god, i know exactly who i am
Track Name: Still Broken/
I dont have to words to make
Any of this make sense
I’m struggling to find meaning in
Dirty clothes and tossed cigarettes
A broken television
Sitting on the floor
Coffee stains and coffee cups
But I don’t drink coffee anymore

I
Don’t understand
Is this depression
Or am I just being bland
Im sleeping in til half past 2
My home is a wasteland
I’m falling down a hole
Please give me a hand

I
Don’t understand
Is this depression
Or am I just being bland
Im sleeping in til half past 3
My home is a wasteland
I’m falling down a hole
Please give me a hand

I
Don’t understand
Is this depression
Or am I just being bland
Im sleeping in til half past 4
My home is a wasteland
I’m falling down a hole
Please give me a hand

I
Don’t understand
Is this depression
Or am I just being bland
Im sleeping in til half past 5
My home is a wasteland
I’m falling down a hole
Please give me a hand
Track Name: Death of Me
Oh won't you be the death of me
I've confessed all my sins
And I am ready to be free
Of the pain of living selfishly
Oh won't you be the death of me

I’ve tried
To make some sense of it
I’ve tried
Being someone who I’m not
I’ve tried
Looking past my imperfections
I’ve tried
I’ve tried

Oh won't you be the death of me
I've confessed all my sins
And I am ready to be free
Of the pain of living selfishly
Oh won't you be the death of me

I’ve tried
To understand myself
I’ve tried
Hating everyone I know
I’ve tried
Making peace with my perspective
I’ve tried
I’ve tried

Oh won't you be the death of me
I've confessed all my sins
And I am ready to be free
Oh the pain of living selfishly
Oh won't you be the death of me

Oh won't you be the death of me
Oh won't you be the death of me
Oh won't you be the death of me
Oh won't you be the death of me
Track Name: Self Care is Pretty Punk Rock
I will be okay
I will make it through this
I will be okay
I will survive
I will be okay
I will make it through this
I will be okay
I will survive

Try to wake up in the morning
Try and shower and eat breakfast
Doesn't matter how the last few days
And weeks and decades went
Try to get dressed and get ready
Try to put some makeup on
Maybe grab a cup of coffee
Or two or three of whatever the fuck gets you through the day

Try and clean up all your messes
From the last few years of living
Try to work, try to get paid
maybe find a better job
Try and make it through til evening
Try to make a proper dinner
It doesn’t matter what you eat
At least fucking try to eat something

Try to get to sleep by midnight
Or at least get into bed
You can think about the future
and dream about the live you wanna live
Maybe try and quit smoking
Try to go back to school
Try and be a better person
But for God's sake, just try and make it through the night

I will be okay
I will make it through this
I will be okay
I will survive
I will be okay
I will make it through this
I will be okay
I will find someway to survive
Track Name: The Morning After
Morning comes softly
Morning goes quickly
Morning punches you in the face
You’re tired and broken
You’re sore and you’re sober
You’ve been that all your life

Sleep for a while
Maybe sleep through the night
The sun will rise again
Sleep for a while
It will be alright
The sun will rise again

There will be a day
That you dont wake up
But you’ll never know when that is
Just keep trying
Just keep living
It’s the only thing you can do

Sleep for a while
Maybe sleep through the night
The sun will rise again
Sleep for a while
It will be alright
The sun will rise again

Sleep for a while
Maybe sleep through the night
The sun will rise again
Sleep for a while
It will be alright
The sun will rise again

Just keep trying
Just keep living
It’s the only thing you can do
