Track Name: Carry Me Home
It’s 6AM, I might be dying
Through ashtray breath you’re always lying
I shat myself, you know it’s true
I never felt anything at all
I never dream, I’m living in a nightmare

Through bloodshot eyes, from broken homes
We’re running out of time, don’t let me die alone

Carry me home
Burnt lungs and broken bones

Dear misery, keep me company
As we share this dawn with misanthropy and cigarettes
I’ve got no regret

As I fill my lungs with this pleasant view
My desolation attitude is killing me
I never dream, I’m living in a nightmare
Track Name: The Nightmare
I'm so sick, so sick of waking throwing up
Killing time with wine in the dark, writing crimson lullabies
My liver's had enough tonight, tonight
Black lungs and bleeding gums
Be still my ashtray heart as my body slowly dies

In this nightmare anatomy
Our dreams are so sincere
Now you're as high as me
If you notice these codeine clouds
When it rains it pours, down on me

I was the boy with the thorn in his side
My whole world I painted black
I wanted to destroy everything beautiful
My whole world I painted black
Track Name: Poison Hearts
Lay down your bones with my heart and your headstone
I lost control and let love tear us apart
We're not alone, I hear a million voices screaming out in pain
The lost souls again

Tonight these miserable bones shatter
As our hearts collide we accept this mess we're in
So we say goodbye to everything that matters
Because tonight these poison hearts won't change

Like hell I'll burn 'cause I don't want to fade
I'll never learn, always falling from grace
But I'm not alone, there are a million other hopeless souls like me
The heartless poison loves
Track Name: Lungs
Hell no, these hollow bones were built for better than you know
Your bitterness, my bated breath, pretty vacant and alone
We live in dying skin from suffering, black fingernails and bone
So beautiful, so fucking strange
We're dying

Breathe a little death into the vultures around your head
We know everyone and everything dies alone

I have died almost a thousand times, in the safety of my mind
Like a ghost on a sea of wine, I am vacant and alone
I live in dying skin from suffering, black fingernails and bone
So beautiful, so fucking strange
I'm dying

Breathe a little death into the vultures around your head
We know everyone and everything dies alone
Breathe in, bleed out
You sold your lungs to sorrow
Such a handsome devil, so bitter and so cold
Track Name: Wolves
We sink a nail in the coffin and soak it down in gasoline
In the dark you're forgotten, just a sailor lost at sea
And like a mute I'm tongue tied, you know I'm always smoking just to breathe
We write a note in my own blood, won't you save me?

We can run like wolves into the night
These limbs of black and blue like your bloody valentine
So stay with me in this misery
We can dance into the dark, it's like a knife into your heart

Now my lungs feel like an ashtray, they're black until the bitter end
Little darling though you're here to stay, surely you know we were never friends
And now I'm choking on my insides and my lungs are too dead to breathe
We write a note in my own blood, won't you save me?

I'm not okay, won't you save me?
Track Name: Never Die Alone
I'm not the one that's been running
I've just been lagging behind
I know I've been absent, that's just how my mind works
And you care just a little less each night

It's all I'm good for, it's all I'll give tonight

(Just one more time) I'd sell my soul to get back home to you
(And I'll dream) I'd sail this sea alone just to hold you now
Like punk rock and cigarettes I'll never let you go
I won't stay lost forever, I'll never die alone

Oh so my darling love (and I felt)
The feelings we've shared thus far
I know I've been absent, that's just how my mind works
And you care just a little less each night
Track Name: Lost Souls
You took your time, I took my leave
A lover's grace
A place for hearts to keep, forever etched into my skin

And now young love is a faded heart
These pale blue eyes stare
As the cracks run through your skin
I see the tears fall down your face

Another misfortune, it's hopeless for all I know
We live! We die! So hollow
We'll always be the lost souls
Whoa (whoa)
We live! We die! So hollow

These cracks run through your skin
(And now your cracks, they run through me)
We chase these sinking ships as water's rushing in
(And now we're sinking in too deep)
I see the tears fall down your face
Track Name: Burn Burn
Yeah, a halo, a picture perfect frame
Yeah, an angel, but you're so scared to say her name
I thought I never meant that much, yeah she burnt me down in flames
A fire fighting beauty, and my heart won't burn the same again

Hela hulo we'll raise the dead, the answers are but clear
More wine to keep my thoughts in check, your ignorance is bliss
And we scream
Hela hulo the angel falls, this inconsistent point of call
Brain dead, a neon back drop to your broken heart
We're all alone again

They say I'm out of my mind
Lock me up and throw the key
This reeks of homicide
We'll burn the evidence

(Burn burn) I looked into these ember eyes so sweet
Wasting all this time on fueling flames, we're fighting fire with fire
(Burn burn) I looked into these ember eyes so sweet
Wasting all this time on fueling flames, we're under over out once again
Track Name: Winter
It's cold outside so let the right one in
I've been searching for memories in gin
I'm paralysed by the disguise on your face
The secrets in your lies, they take me so far from home

(But home is where the heart is)

Falling like winter, emotionless in white
Chasing the shadows each and every night
Fall like winter, I see hell in your eyes
Chasing the shadows each and every day and night

That night we died, a gutter for a hearse
A picture perfect Adelaide curse
You're still surprised by the blood on your hands
The secrets in your lies, they take me so far from home

(But home is nowhere)
Track Name: Adelaide
I'm not sentimental, I'm not wise
And sure as hell I'm not your blessing in disguise
But there's one thing that I can truly say
I'm getting sick to death of fucking Adelaide

This is the city, the city that sleeps
With crooked people and filthy fucking streets

So kill us all tonight (wo-oh!)
There's nothing going on in this God-awful town
So kill us all tonight (wo-oh!)
There's nothing going on in this God-awful town
So burn it down

In the city of churches sin is all I know
That's why, my friends, I surely have to go
But there's one thing that I can truly say
I'm getting sick to death of fucking Adelaide
Track Name: Wolves (Orchestral Version)
We sink a nail in the coffin and soak it down in gasoline
In the dark you're forgotten, just a sailor lost at sea
And like a mute I'm tongue tied, you know I'm always smoking just to breathe
We write a note in my own blood, won't you save me?

We can run like wolves into the night
These limbs of black and blue like your bloody valentine
So stay with me in this misery
We can dance into the dark, it's like a knife into your heart

Now my lungs feel like an ashtray, they're black until the bitter end
Little darling though you're here to stay, surely you know we were never friends
And now I'm choking on my insides and my lungs are too dead to breathe
We write a note in my own blood, won't you save me?

I'm not okay, won't you save me?
