Track Name: Ditty
Sing a ditty, sing a rhyme
Sing a song that breathes life into your whole mind
Shouldn't matter, shouldn't mean
Making it. It isn't what it's supposed to be

Just get out and have some fun
Quit the pressure of yourself
Remove your mind, remove your head from what you make
Stand up and dance around in your bedroom
Let your feelings levitate

Na na nas and a ooh wee oohs
Making it. It isn't what you're supposed to do
Sing it long and sing it loud
It isn't supposed to please the whole crowd

Just get out and have some fun
Quit the pressure of yourself
Remove your mind, remove your head from what you make
Stand up and dance around in your bedroom
Let your feelings levitate
Track Name: Punishment
Supporting the system that supported me, all the while I was 23. Waiting for something that could never be, waiting for something never meant for me.
Sometimes it hits me like a punishment.
All of my memories are a punishment.
Everyone hates me and I hate me too.
Everything scares me and I'm sad it's true.
Track Name: All The Time
Turn round
Never know what’s next
I gotta get me something I can relate
I feel trapped
Never getting out
There’s something beautiful in the mundane

And I work at it all the time
And I forget it all the time

Sit Down
Wear yourself right out
The slow erosion that will bury you whole
I get drunk
Stay out every night
Anaesthetise the mind to lessen your goals

And I work at it all the time
And I forget it all the time
Track Name: Fire
There's a fire around you, there's a fire inside me. If you don't come back soon, all will be consumed.
Track Name: I Don't Know
No, I just can't shake this
This feeling of pure emptiness
Is this a test?

I'm not stressed, I'm not happy
There's nothing inside
I can't reveal what I feel

There's no point now
What is real?

I feel like I don't know which way I need to go
I always knew that I had something that my heart and mind would show
I never felt so lost I'm sure my heart in time will let it go
I'm just afraid that you're the only one who knows

Nothing can prepare you
For the purgatory and the dark
Still the spark

This shit just don't switch off
This shit just don't switch off overnight
It's not right

It don't fade out
Overnight

I feel like I don't know which way I need to go
I always knew that I had something that my heart and mind would show
I never felt so lost I'm sure my heart in time will let it go
I'm just afraid that you're the only one who knows
Track Name: Cool
I used to look up to your cool
I used to feel like such a fool
I would do anything
To do what you do and be just like that

Your clothes, your style, your Rock'n'Roll Hair
Now it's almost too much to bear
Back then all I could see
Was the cool scene that you put before me

Now I know that you never knew at all
Now I know that you weren't so fucking tall

I used to wonder every day
I wondered how to be that way
The thought of being just like you
Was all that I could hang on to

Now when I see your type around
Posing, just waiting to be found
I laugh and realise what
A game you play and that you're full of...shit

Now I know that you never knew at all
Now I know that you weren't so fucking tall
Track Name: Turn Up The Heat
If you wanna f-ck with me i'm gonna show you who you're f-cking with.
Turn up the heat. Who ya f-cking with?
