Track Name: Bury Me At Sea
Don’t flatter yourself tonight
Cos I’m not your first choice
But hey, you’re not mine
Come on, come on, you couldn’t hold it back if you tried
I’ve tried so many times
I guess I just need reminding why I stopped the first time

You couldn’t write this kind of comedy
But oh, I’ve said it all and more
And I’m still talking myself into the floor
When I’m done throwing words up and you head for the door
I’ll kiss goodbye to tragedy

Cos you’re like a siren
And the sea bed is where you’re singing me to sleep
But so far this sinking seems ok
The water is dark enough to hide it all away

Well it’s been a while since I’ve felt free of this façade
And maybe I get what I deserve, but this seems harsh
Those things you never see coming always hit you twice as hard
So I left all hope for dead and buried it so far away
I pray it’s over but I know you won’t let it be

Cos you’re like a siren
And the sea bed is where you’re singing me to sleep
And so far this sinking seems ok
But water won’t wash this mess away

And now all I want is to stay as we are right now
Before you take it all away
I’m counting down the days
And it still gives me the shakes
But I’m not so sure that’ll ever change
Or how I’ll escape in the wreckage you’re making of me

Cos you’re just a siren
And the sea bed is where you’re waiting to sing me to sleep
But I kissed goodbye to tragedy
You’re singing me to sleep…
Track Name: Transform And Roll Out
It’s about time the final act played out
And this is how it’s going down: A continent at a time
I won’t be where you are when the curtain starts to fall

And I’m not afraid; just not ready yet
Let me see this through
Before the first one hits across the ocean

I’m learning how the signs were there
And now alarm bells sound; you’re bailing out
In confidence, ‘in God we trust’, you broke me down
I found out who you are and the warheads are falling now

But I’m not afraid; just not ready yet
Let me see this through
Before the first one hits across the ocean

Come in base, status report: man down, abort!
Hey, stop worrying about all the wrong things
I see the smoke but I know this ain’t the end
And this delay’s nothing new
They’ll never stop you
So let them go on screaming below
‘This is the end of us all’
Cos I’m not afraid… Just not ready yet

Hold back your fire, this is our finest hour
We’ll cross the ocean
Track Name: Holding Back
Now I’ve had a taste
I guess that’s all it takes to get my priorities as broken as my promises
I didn’t think this through

And she said “Come on, what’s wrong?
Did you expect me to be holding out for you?”
You say I’m too forward
Then you fall in bed with anyone who will have you
I saw this coming, guess I should’ve known

So I’m missing tact?
I guess you taught me that it doesn’t pay to hold it back
Forget about your pride, it’s no good for you
What did I think you’d do?

And she said “Come on, what’s wrong?
Did you expect me to be holding out for you?”
You say I’m too forward
Then you fall in bed with anyone who will have you
I saw this coming

Now it’s said and done
And I can only keep this up so long
Before I take it back like I’m in the wrong
But I don’t even wanna know where you’ve been
(They kiss and you tell)
Where you go…
(You sold it so well)
I should’ve known
I didn’t think this through…

What did I think you’d do?
Track Name: The Anticipation
You only made this harder for me
Don’t say you’re sorry
I’m gonna see this out
And forget about how forgetting is not working
You’re not worth it
I’m determined not to give in
I will not let this win
Or have doctors drug me up till I don’t feel a thing

You taught me all about how nothing is as it seems
I learnt a lesson about hearts on sleeves
And how if you can feel it’s too good to be true, it’s better to leave before you’re proved right
I feel it…

And now I know that it’s over, I’ve got this feeling:
It’s better than anything you gave
And I can see what you once saw in me
And I will start again

Don’t say you’re sorry
You left me set to begin
You thought I’d fallen to pieces
But I thickened my skin with the stone you set me in
And I won’t deny, at the side of you that night I thought I’d broken through
But all you provided was silence and this bitter taste
I know attention is all you need, and now it’s fleeting, you’ll spin the story until I seem defeated
Well let them believe it

If you convince yourself that none of this matters
There’s nothing left here for you to lose

And now I know that it’s over, I’ve got this feeling:
It’s better than anything you gave
And I can see what you once saw in me
And I will start again and accept it’s the end
Now it seems that the end is all that matters
If loss is forever, at least the slate’s clean

You only made this harder for me
Don’t say you’re sorry
I’m gonna see this out
And forget about how forgetting is not working
You’re not worth it
I’m determined I will be gone by the time that it dawns on you how much you stand to lose
Because you convinced yourself that none of this matters
And not a word of it’s true

And now I know that it’s over, I’ve got this feeling:
It’s better than anything you gave
And now it’s through, I just wish I knew what I thought I saw in you
Track Name: We're On The Same Page (Different Book)
Here’s my chance to fall in line
Another offer I’ll decline
And I know your option made more sense than mine
I’m not saying that you’ll be on the list of names that I must prove wrong
Cos I’ve got half a mind saying you’re right
And I’m letting my heart decide

Cos it’s all I’m breathing for
And you’ve got life ready and waiting for you
And I am sure in time I’ll realise you were right
But I’d rather not succeed than not try
So I’m trying now, and I’ll see this out

It’s my weakness to stay strong
And I appreciate why you’re moving on
But it’s the only chance I’ll get to belong
So even when another year has come and gone
As you walk the path that I should be on
If I’m sinking with this ship instead
I won’t start holding my breath
Cos we’re a long time dead…

And it’s all I’m breathing for
You’ve got life ready and waiting for you
And I am sure in time I’ll realise you were right
But I’d rather not succeed than not try

And if I fail, if I’m wrong it’s alright
I wouldn’t take it back
And if all is lost, I tried, and I can live with that
So don’t say I’m wasting my time

Cos it’s all I’m breathing for
And you’ve got life ready and waiting for you
And I am sure in time I’ll realise you were right
But I’d rather not succeed than not try
So I’m trying now…
