Track Name: Static Hum
The static from the speakers hums in my head, can’t help but think about you when I’m in bed.

I’ve felt like I can’t love lately, and its wearing me out.
I’ve felt like we’re leaving lately, so i started to tear it out.

Back to the static speakers that hum in my head, got caught up in feelings inside my chest. Oh, and I’ve been heaving in a desperate protest to silence the static speakers that hum in my head.

I’ve felt like I can’t love lately, and its wearing me out.
I’ve felt like we’re leaving lately, so i started to tear it out.

Tearing you down.
Track Name: Small Talk
You said last night that you nearly cried when you were watching Toy Story and it broke me inside and I just wanted to told you tight.
As we drove though the night my mind was turning and inside i was burning to say ‘Oh, i wish you didnt feel this way.'

So I’ve been drinking coffee in attempts to keep me awake, while you’re awake, while you can’t sleep at night, and i would hope that i’ll be here for you if you wanted to talk. So when you lie in bed with the TV on trying to forget about the ways i did wrong; just know I’m sorry and i didnt mean to hurt and make you feel this way.
While you at your show tonight il be sitting in my room under the fairy lights hoping you got an escape, and your gonna play it all away.
I know how it goes they ask you for more, they ask you if you want take anything to make it less sore and il know you’ll say no.

So when you sit in your bed tonight with the TV on trying to sleep just know that I’ve drank a coffee to keep me awake incase you need me to say ‘How as your day?’ and ‘What have you been up to?’ I know its just small talk, but i think its what you need; when you’ve felt it all day. And i swear il be here for you, if you need me to be.
Track Name: Like Ghosts
You treat me like a ghost, the way you only see me with no one else around.
You speak to me in code, and when i try to speak you turn me down.
And im tired of it, so tired of it...

So shut me out and let me back in when no ones looking, i’ll haunt you now and make you believe in apparition.
Cause I’m not scared of the phantom living in my walls, hes my friend and hes more loyal to me than you are.

This is getting deeper than i thought, my feelings are leaving me tangled in knots
A girl from Lowell once said ‘This is not just all in your head’, but that it is.
And im tired of it...

So shut me out and let me back in when no ones looking, i’ll haunt you now and make you believe in apparition.
Cause I’m not scared of the phantom living in my walls, hes my friend and hes more loyal to me than you are.

Lowell ghost, i need you now.
But you have no time for me.
Can you catch this drift?
It serves as eyes for you to see.
Track Name: This Will Be The Place I Haunt
Kicking away the lipstick-stained cigarette butt ends by the door...
Walking around the empty cups on the floor...
I came back here in the light; when we left it in the dark it was so hard.

So should I feel a change today? Although the world spins the same I’m living with a new name, one that doesn’t quite ring the same.

The sun came up and marked the end, maybe it’s time to let this go? But i just can’t seem to let you go.

So should i feel a change today? Although the world spins the same I’m living with a new name, one that doesn’t quite ring the same.

You look so different in the black and orange street light,
You had such a hold on me that night,
Remember the last words you said? You said ‘I can’t do this.’
Well, it looks like we’ve done it.

This will be the place that i haunt, but you’ll be the one that I don’t want.
Track Name: Who You Are
The distance thing seems to be working
And he shouted at me, I think that he’s hurting
A pain that is so undeserving,
Shake it off and let it go.

The nights are getting cold and the autumns turning
Out in The Axe and we sat there smoking
Our surroundings are constantly changing
Shake it off and let it go.

I want to work on myself, but I’ve lost some heart
And I swore id never do that, I sing to myself ‘I don’t know who you are’
Wanna work on myself but I’ve lost some heart
And i sing to myself
I don’t know who you are.

A new routine but the same old desire,
Just waiting for something to ignite this fire,
Something to lift me just a little higher,
Looks like I’ve got to do it myself.

If i let go of being so judgemental,
Maybe I’ll feel a little more settled.
So far, attempts have been unsuccessful
Looks like I’ve got to do it myself
Track Name: Already Running
I think a black fire burned tonight, there was a gothic mirror reflecting the light. I was shoved across the floor for a fight I’m helpless; my otherside has come alive.

I stood between her tongue and her lips. You make me draw a breath with just your fingertips. I always thought I was weaker than this; my stomach turns and my feet itch.

I just want to feel a fire again,
And direct my efforts in ways they will be well spent.
The words you said didn’t mean a thing.

I’m sorry for my insecurities; there was no other way to get through to me.
Now you can just how deep i can be,
And I’ll bet you’re already running.

I just want to feel a fire again,
And direct my efforts in ways they will be well spent.
The words you said didn’t mean a thing.

I know this will only last for so long, and I’m loved more than i can know.
