Track Name: Happy? (preview now)
Everybody's happy
Dreaming of the future
Anything to reach the morning light
Unicorns and rainbows
Cubicles in neat rows
It's everything you want so hold on tight

Everybody's happy dreaming of the future

Everybody's working
Working for the weekend
I just want to feel like I'm alive
Stare at the computer
Your pixellated future
Somehow you never feel like you've arrived

Everybody's happy dreaming of the future

Is everybody happy?
Is everybody happy here?
Is everybody happy?
Is anybody happy here?
Track Name: View of the Sea (preview now)
Going over and over
All the things in my mind
I've been waiting 'til morning
To have you here by my side

Alone with you with a view of the sea
Exactly where I want to be
Alone with you with a view of the sea

I've been walking for miles
With the sand at my feet
I've been fighting my dark life
While you quietly sleep

Alone with you with a view of the sea
Exactly where I want to be
Alone with you with a view of the sea

Going over and over
All the things in my mind
I've been waiting 'til morning
To have you here by my side
Track Name: This Is Who I Am (preview now)
The rain outside well it makes me smile
I’d rather take erosion over nothing
The Moz is playing on my stereo
I’ll always take the darkened over empty
Scissors and tape and my bedroom wall
Sometimes I wish that I could hang you near me
Compilation cassettes I recorded for you
Expressions of the things that I can’t show you

This is who I am
These posters on my wall
This is who I am
These things define my soul
This is who I am
These posters on my wall

I surround myself with the things I love
To help me find a cure for my afflictions
Eyeliner’s come back to an ideal world
We’ll put on black and quietly deceive
Come back to my room and I’ll read you some poems
Please lie if you can’t tell the truth
Come back to my room and I’ll show you the things
That may mean nothing to you

This is who I am
These posters on my wall
This is who I am
These things define my soul
This is who I am
These posters on my wall
These are the things that define me

It’s all I know
It’s all I know
It’s all I know
It’s all I know

There’s an empty space that I need to fill
Just below the window that won’t open
I like it to be a reflection of me
In an image of the ones who killed tradition

This is who I am
These posters on my wall
This is who I am
These things define my soul
This is who I am
These posters on my wall
These are the things that define me
This is who I am
These posters on my wall
This is who I am
These things define my soul
This is who I am
These posters on my wall
These are the things that could save me
Track Name: Sleep (preview now)
Sleep my love
In the morning you will see I'm gone
Don't wake up
Sleep believing you've done nothing wrong
'Cause in my eyes
You're the angel I'm the ugly one
So it's goodbye
It looks as though that time has finally won this time

I never wanted any of this
But you never wanted me

Sunlight fades
The Virgo sun has said goodbye for now
And in this shade
I lose myself amongst the ugly crowd
And so they're gone
Remember all the dreams we said out loud
This feels wrong
I can hardly find myself beneath this shroud

I never wanted any of this
But you never wanted me

Now that you've got the things you need
Just stand around and watch me bleed
Now that you know you don't want me
Just stand around and watch me bleed

I never wanted any of this
But you never wanted me
