Track Name: Honor Oak Park
On a train to Honor Oak Park
Got music in my ears, a bottle in my pocket
I can't decide just what I'll do now
These last 3 years have gone pretty fast
Pulled up in the station, I staggered from the train
I was feeling pretty dizzy, Life is just the same
So I'll take a moment to gather my thoughts
And figure this shit out

This melody almost sang me to sleep (woah-oh)
I can't control what it's doing to me (woah-oh)
The words you offer are no help (woah-oh)
Because when I take advice I take it from the inside

On the platform taking my time
Checking the directions, it's a hard one to find
It's already 9pm
If I don't get there soon they'll be calling time
I've been waiting months for this show
But money's tight and I almost couldn't go
That's why I've been taking some time to figure some things out

This melody almost sang me to sleep (woah-oh)
I can't control what it's doing to me (woah-oh)
The words you offer are no help (woah-oh)
Because when I take advice I take it from the inside

I don't wanna fall asleep but I'm sinking deeper, it's closing in
I've never been one to fight
And every night I'm thinking what a fucking mess I'm in
How can I fix this one?
I can't find the way to go
Can't find my way home
Can't find peace of mind
So I'm sleeping in the gutter until sunrise
Track Name: Off Script
Do you remember the days
In summers embrace
We'd drink until the dawn like we're never going home?
The sweet scent of youth
is gone in the blink of an eye
lets recapture some fire tonight

These days are captured like movies in my mind
Sit back and watch them with popcorn and a glass of wine
These sentimental thoughts come rushing back again
I love these memories I'll take them to my grave

All I see is rain
Beating on dirty window panes
It's like it's never going to end
Days like today
Remind me of when we used to rage
Let's throw our fists in the air tonight

Sometimes
I like to flick to a new page
Start afresh it's a brand new day
That's why
I am clutching to this pen
I never want to be scripted again
Track Name: Saturday Morning
Sober:
Can’t get up, I’m feeling unwell
Last night I was drunk as hell
Friday night really hits me hard
When morning comes I’m bruised and scared

Dewey:
Don’t bother ringing, I’m hanging up the phone
I just wanna be left alone
Can’t recall a thing I did or said
Can’t stop the room spinning in my head

Chorus:
Saturday morning I’m feeling low
Times moving but moving far too slow
Friday night we were riding high
These times seem to fly right by

Sober:
Cover my eyes and climb back in bed
I can’t stop this pounding head
Mornings like theses are the worst
I start to fell like I’ve been cursed

Dewey:
Sweating out my demons but they won’t leave yet
Head’s still spinning with the beers and regret
Flashbacks fuck me up, Nurofen’s not enough
It’s half 5(pm) but I’m still not getting up
Track Name: My Life at Sea
Set sail on a stormy night
Sailing away from the lighthouse lights
The boat becomes a coffin
Adrift in a sea of green
And the first hand screams with a swallows cry
"Mother I'm sorry I don't wanna die,
But no man here has the right to life,
and I'm the cause of so much strife"

I'll keep singing the story of my life at sea
Endless days and sleepless nights with nowhere to be
I'll keep singing the story of my life at sea
Endless days and sleepless nights with nowhere to be

When the storm hits starboard side
I'm thrown down deck with a shrieking cry
The boat starts rocking
And I rope myself just in time
And the first hand, weeping inside, says
"Why did so many have to die?
Thank you poseidon for sparing my life,
I'll make more of it this time"
Track Name: End of the War
So I decided to spend the night
Watching The Next Generation on my own
So I'm sorry honey but I'm not at home
If you call me tomorrow maybe I'll pick up
But lately I've been having the worst kind of luck
And I'm sorry darling but we're through
And you walk across the room your eyes tearing up
You turn back to me and tell me to "get fucked"

You know my skull's been growing tight
Your endless nagging caused the end of this
So I lay back and close my eyes
We both knew it would come to this
Even from the very first kiss
So I'm sorry darling but we're through
As the sun starts to set I'm already feeling it
This overwhelming sense of bliss
Track Name: Poetry From the Hedgerow
I can’t shake the sense I’m drowning
You push me in the dirty water
It’s like daggers through my heart
Leaves caught in my scruffy hair
And I remember when I saw you
On the other side of that shitty bar
I knew you’d be mine
It was only for a short time

I’m down, but I’m not out
I’m down, but these wings of wax will help me fly

Bottles litter my bedroom floor
Like a city of sunken ships
Although I drank them all
I found no answers within
So I think I’ll take a walk
Try and clear my foggy head
I’ll stare up at the stars
Daedalus don’t let me climb too high
