Track Name: Sleep It Off
I was once where you are
Lost abroad in the loneliest way from you
I could keep it all in
Just enough to make it look seamless now

I sleep it, I sleep it
I sleep it all off now
I take it, I break it
I will it away from me
I sleep it, I sleep it
I sleep it all off
But I’m gone

I could hide from the stares
Make myself blend in so carelessly
Fall asleep at the wheel
Just pretend that there’s nothing wrong with this

I sleep it, I sleep it
I sleep it all off now
I take it, I break it
I will it away from me
I sleep it, I sleep it
I sleep it all off
But I’m gone
Track Name: Fuck You
I’m gonna take me down to the riverside
I’m gonna rest my head by the water’s deep
You’re gonna shelter me til my sins are cleansed
I’m gonna rest my head til my body’s dead


You’re gonna wish the sight of me be gone
I’m gonna grant your wish gonna pack my car
I’m gonna leave this town with my own two hands
Ain’t no part of me wanna stay up there

Oooooh
Oooooh

Now the moon is rising over window pane
And I haven’t been to sleep for days
If you love me hell my lord I need you now
I ain’t got none left to make me stay

Fuck you I can’t get loose
I don’t understand it
Wreck me strike me down
Just to let me feel
You can save me or break me now
But I won’t stay
I don’t know if I’ll make it through another day

Fuck you I can’t get loose
I don’t understand it
Wreck me strike me down
Just to let me feel
You can save me or break me now
But I won’t stay
I don’t know if I’ll make it through another day
Track Name: I Never Wanted
Took my fall I took it all
There wasn’t much left to restore
You tell Peter I’ll tell Paul
I never meant to make that fall

So I walked in unknown lands
Threw myself to stranger’s hands
I told him I told it all
I always wanted to be more

I never wanted anything like this
I never wanted anything like this

There was freedom in the sound
Of breaking hearts and wounded pride
You told me you told it all
Oh look just what you made me do

I never wanted anything like this
I never wanted anything like this
Track Name: The Wild
Take your whole life bring it to me
The river knows best I cannot lie
Questions so real haunt your own feet
Stretch out your hands call to the sea

Depart from me love and wash your own feet
Of things we have known and know love’s defeat
Leave me your hand and I’ll leave you mine
Questions so real run wild with the time

Take me to the wild call me to the sea
Make my heart mild for the questions of grief
Don’t need no show, don’t need no shoes
Got me a wild one me and my man

Oh to know you love I cannot
Only know the song of the bird she knows

Questions so real run through my head
Won’t be long now til I am dead
Keep me alive til I can know truth
Deep at the feet at the old widow’s hand

Take me to the wild call me to the sea
Make my heart mild for the questions of grief
Don’t need no show, don’t need no shoes
Got me a wild one me and my man
Track Name: Always On My Mind
You and I go down to the river
Into where I can see things clearly, clearly

We wait for weeks (da da da, da da da)
And wander on (da da da, da da da)
And you know I (da da da, da da da)
I can be strong (da da da, da da da)
But I was waiting
To make a case (da da da, da da da)
And see you go (da da da, da da da)

You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my

We made our oath down at the river
Took my weakest self and dove in carelessly, carelessly

I wait for me (da da da, da da da)
To be myself (da da da, da da da)
But in my youth (da da da, da da da)
I lost my wealth (da da da, da da da)
But I was waiting
To make a case (da da da, da da da)
And wander on (da da da, da da da)

You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my

Way back, I held you back
Way back, I held you back
Way back, I held you back
Way back, I held you back

You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my mind
You were always on my mind, always on my
Track Name: Hands
There’s an end to all these stories
But I’ll never tell
I could wander endless oceans
And never break the spell

You know I never wanted
To be caught this deep
Neon lights and blaring secrets
Made the crime so sweet

Just because my hands are small and broken
Doesn’t mean I’m fit to kill a man
When you know you’ve got to break away
I’ll woo you

Took me in and closed the curtains
I may call me too
Let it go beyond my conscious
There’s a useless clue

Your life was never meant to
Wrestle with these lines
Cross the floor beyond all reason
And I’ll do the time

Just because my hands are small and broken
Doesn’t mean I’m fit to kill a man
When you know you’ve got to break away
I’ll woo you
Track Name: New Sincerity
I don’t know if I’ll ever feel right
My thoughts feel like bullets in this fight
And my blood ran cold as the words leaked out
Please don’t hold me to this

What are you even fighting for
If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at?
What are we even fighting for
If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at?

Take your time to find your way back home
You may find you’re fighting all alone
Take your time to settle on your way
Hit the breaks and let it fade away

You read something I wrote
You said it was all shit
Didn’t know that I should’ve been running
Til I came to wilderness

What are you even fighting for
If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at?
What are we even fighting for
If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at?

Take your time to find your way back home
You may find you’re fighting all alone
Take your time to settle on your way
Hit the breaks and let it fade away

I love the way the dust seems to dance in the night
And the breeze knocks the shit off the windows
The thoughts that we breed are the spaces we have
So I might do some rearranging
This will be the memories that I carry today
These will be the things that I dwell on
You can’t believe what it’s like to be me
I can’t assume to be you

Take your time to find your way back home
You may find you’re fighting all alone
Take your time to settle on your way
Hit the breaks and let it fade away
Track Name: All Gone
So you say you’ve gotta go Far away from what you know We’ll be ok

Find a way to make an end Bring a lover, bring a friend To make it through

Then you know you’ve opened up your heart You find those little secrets from your past Then you know you’ve opened up that door

They’ve all gone
They’ve all gone
They’ve all gone
They’ve all gone

See the meaning in a dream In the way you move your feet I know you care

Grizzly ends and love’s defeat What decays and what repletes Will live again

Then you know you’ve opened up your heart You find those little secrets from your past Then you know you’ve opened up that door

They’ve all gone
They’ve all gone
They’ve all gone
They’ve all gone

They’ve all gone They’ve all gone now
Track Name: Asleep By The River
I spy the water’s cosy sleep
I dive with freedom only to be waking up again far away from you
Ahoooo, Ahoooo

I break the surface of this sea
I brave the water’s only to be drinking from a cup that would plant my feet
Ahoooo, Ahoooo

And the river was deep
And I wanted to leave
So i went to sleep
But the night claimed me
And the river was deep
And i begged to leave
But the deep found me
So I cursed my feet

Into the waking dawn so fierce
I break my promise
Let the icy water take a hold and let me disappear
Ahoooo, Ahoooo

And the river was deep
And I wanted to leave
So i went to sleep
But the night claimed me
And the river was deep
And i begged to leave
But the deep found me
So I cursed my feet


Find me in my weakness
Let me bear a likeness
Into something sweeter
This could be my brightness
