Track Name: Holding An Apple
One for the people who can't get their shit together
They pick it up
Fuck it up anyway

For the the people working hours on their tower
Then they watch it come down on a vacuous soul like me

For the people with their pockets of jewels and bills to pay
And nothing but a God on their tongue

**there are more lyrics, but i can't really tell what i'm on about**
Track Name: On
i feel stupid with my name tag on
i do more damage when i'm at home
it's a beautiful way to spend your day
and spend each night putting more weight on

thin skin with impossible bones
more will power than i could hope
it's a pitiful end to being your friend
to spend all night with a phone light on

but look and emerald now she's ok
because she's far away from here
(by design)

i can't think of another word
for the feeling that holds me down
and i'm stuck to the floor when my eyes are sore
i'll spend my life with a brave face on

but look and emerald now she's ok
because she's far away from here

couldn't stop my mind from wandering
into your mind, you left open
same tin paint box every night
and that's not right
that's not right
but it's better than none at all
Track Name: Gold Standard
today
i'm made of ibuprofen & coffee
hand me down my glasses
because i can't see
how you got inside of me

today
i'm made of pink nostalgia & whiskey
please clean the windows
because i can't see
how you got inside with me

no-one cares about you if you don't fit in
i left it far too late now i don't fit in

it's a shame
that i've made a fool of myself yet again
left alone by my friends
i'm to blame
no-one stays too long with me

no-one cares about you if you don't fit in
i left it far too late now i don't fit in

she said
"it's in your head & you're doing ok,
in the dark with a warm guitar,
come on! let's hear you play"
Track Name: Welcome
i've been too scared to say what i've been thinking
i've always felt like i'm a con
i think the trick is not to overstay your welcome
make your point & then move on

thank you for this gold-plated opportunity
i have buried it in sound
this esteem is a feeling that's so new to me
i can only let you down

nothing means anything
nothing means anything
nothing means anything you want
Track Name: Found a Marble
waiting here for someone i know
Track Name: Look Up!
it's so strange to be here
with my head held high
did you know, where i come from
my name is a punchline?

turn around

look up
(no i can't look at you
yes i've got nice shoes too)

the man in a too-tight t shirt
has a sad story to tell
soft skin & a brother
to everyone else as well

turn around

look up
(no i can't look at you
yes i've got nice shoes too)
Track Name: Clown Balloons
kettles boil & the limpets hang
from the porches where the sparrow sang
Track Name: Frown
i drew a line at seeing you in person
because the last thing i remember is the feeling that worsened
every time you came into the room
the the ceiling cracked a frown
and the walls come tumbling down

you don't need to say hello

i drew a line at looking in you eyes
because the last time i did i caught a reflection i despised
anytime i saw through you r eyes
the floorboards creak a sigh
and the windows can't look at the sky

you don't need to say hello
Track Name: Weekend Break
i sleep when i'm tired & i eat when i'm hungry
i wish that was all there is

what do i do when the feeling of fear has gone away

i'm sorry about your fireworks
but i've had a lot to drink
and if i'm not happy
then you're not happy
at least that's how i think

i run when i'm able
and i walk when i'm not
it's as simple as i can make

what do i do when the feeling of fear has gone away

i'm sorry about your fireworks
but i've had a lot to drink
and if i'm not happy
then you're not happy
at least that's how i think
