Track Name: Half A Life
Six months of winter
They go on and on.
I feel absolutely nothing
Until the frost is gone.
It bites me till I’m
Then I remember summer,
That’s when I know
Life will start again.

I’m not living half a life,
I’m living twice as hard,
Half the time.

Romanticise depression
Until it’s fun.
I wanna ride home
In the warmth of the sun.
The optimist in me has won,
How naive is that?
It’ll just come back around,
And that’s a fact.
Track Name: Sugar Coated
You ask if it impresses me,
I could take or leave it.
I say I wanna do the same
But you don’t believe it.
You think it’s just a phase for me,
Cos I wouldn’t take this seriously.

“Actually, you’re good for a girl,
You learn quite fast.”
But I know what you’re thinking:
“Let’s see how long this lasts.”

I hear the noises from outside
And I wanna join in,
But contribution at this point
Just seems quite threatening.
Guitar heroes in the making
Make me feel as if I’m faking.

Sugar coated, gender noted,
Bullshit compliments
Fill the air around me.
I inhale, I exhale
But I don’t feel any better
Cos I know I’ll never get a
Chance to bite back and...

You ask if it impresses me.
Track Name: Sweaters
I’m in that mood again,
Want everything to be numb.
It’s dark at 4pm,
Put my pyjamas on.

I could write a song,
Make the world less overwhelming,
An inspiring one,
Instead I just feel empty.
Yeah, I feel empty.

I let my sadness get the best of me.
I’m not a go-getter
and I never will be.
Still embarassed over things that
happened years ago.
Think I’ve only got myself to blame.

Clicking through my tabs,
Hope for something out of nothing.
Cutting myself off
Without even thinking.
Admiring from afar
All these amazing people
But I don’t know what to say,
Keep it boring and technical.

When summer’s here
I lose myself.
It flies by,
Wish I could bottle it.
When it’s gone i tell myself,
It’s only just begun,
We’ll sort this out.
Track Name: Slippers
Ten years ago
I could sit through this show.
I would get so angry,
Caught up in it all,
Now I’m not sure it’s complex at all.

There’s no time to waste
But I always find a way.
There’s no time like the present,
It terrifies me.
Another bystander,
It gets darker every day.

‘Til nowhere feels like home,
Beyond our control.
I can’t watch it slip away.

A breaking point
that never comes,
The last place on earth
To see what’s wrong.
Caught up with misguided pride
In a country that’s been cutthroat
For the longest time.
Track Name: Incompatible
Our roots separated and I hate it.
I’m sure there were reasons,
But they were never stated.

Growing up didn’t take that long,
We grew apart,
I thought we were strong.
Childish minds formed a naive bond
But now you’ve placed yourself
Where I don’t belong.

Gripping on to the things that still
connect us,
There’s a long long road between me and you.
We can only talk about our past lives,
Our present days/states are

I used to think that we were the same
So maybe I am just the one to blame.
I had expectations of loyalty,
No misery.
I used to think that we were a team,
I was living in a bit of a dream.
You’re facing the wrong way now,
You’re standing still
And I can’t move you.

I had hoped you’d
Ask for more.
Hobbies abandoned,
Left at the door.
Still it’s okay,
If you’re happy.
We had our days.
