Track Name: Terrified
Made it out to your party
Made it to the bar
But I'm not having a good time
No, not at all
A solid wall of hateful shame & spite closing in on me
And the tunnel's getting smaller now, I can't see

I'm terrified of everyone around me

Can't fucking breathe hear
Tied up in knots
Maybe a drink will help, yeah
Gimme all you got
Gotta keep gotta keep gotta keep it in check
Only thing I can do is to keep myself a wreck

I'm terrified of everyone around me
I'm vilified of all that is within me
I'm petrified of how the world surrounds me
I'm terrified of everyone around me
Track Name: Night Time
Doesn't matter what I may try
The sun goes down and I'm gonna cry
Oh the night time is no place to be

Why do I bother? Why do I care?
Out and about and there's nobody there
Oh the night time is no place for me

I try to go somewhere and have some kind of fun
But the music's too loud, I've had too much to drink
Alone in a crowd and I'm starting to sink

Doesn't matter what I may try
The sun goes down and I'm gonna cry
Oh the night time is no place to be

No perfect angel that I'm dreaming of
Just wanna meet a girl and fall in love
Woah the night time is no place for me
Track Name: Can't Stand It
Do you feel
In the night
That you're losing
All your fight

Climb so far
In your own shell
Now your safety
Is your cell

Do you try
To stay awake
Keep the nightmares
Far away

Have a drink
And settle down
Have another
Until you drown

I can't stand it.
Track Name: I Don’t Sleep Well
I don't sleep too well
Doze off to guitars, awake in front of cars
Warm milk, blankets and tea
Nothing will make sleep come back to me
How to console a ball of lead
No proper pillow propping up my head
I can't turn off my brain
Unceasing silence on an inconsiderate train
4:24am
It's only Tuesday
I'm going back to bed.
Track Name: Never To Be Found
Standing on a broken crutch
Never want to feel forever more
Can't shake the loss of touch
Zeroing existence to a bore

Young dreams to full-grown faltered
Expedited expirations
Was inspiration altered?
Or destroyed by consternation?

Used to feel alive, never wanted to die
Rock'n'roll would always get me by
Desperation of future unaware
Passing opportunities that aren't even there

False pretense of non-existent regrets
Excusing failure that hasn't happened yet
Wasted running around, obsessing over the sound
Keep it hidden beneath the underground

Used to feel alive, never wanted to die
Rock'n'roll would always get me by
Desperation of future unaware
Passing opportunities that aren't even there

False pretense of non-existent regrets
Excusing failure that hasn't happened yet
Wasted running around, obsessing over the sound
Keep it hidden, never to be found
Track Name: I Should Be Dreaming
I should be dreaming, not still here, out on the town
I'd rather be alone and not about to drown

Orange globes irradiate the night
As I float by
Sweet heaven coming into focus
And I might cry
Every single leaf upon each tree
So crystal clear
I escaped my purgatory
And left behind my fear
Track Name: Something Wrong
Send me the leaden pillow
That you dream on
Send me the letters you wrote
Saying you won't be long gone

Send me the leaden pillow
That you dream on
Meet by the wounded willow
After the leaves' gone

And don't reply if your eyes are dry

I must be something wrong
