Track Name: I Haven't Seen Evil Dead II Yet
It's been the roughest week for me
There's been parts I'd rather never speak of again
But it's 6am and I can tell it's happening
And I finally feel this weight begin to lift

Thinking back to you
I was looking out for you, were you looking out for me?
This is everything about everyone I've ever known

Each day I wake up scared to death I'll not do anything
And I'll not do a thing about it at all
A sudden move towards a table of your former friends
In attempts to know your place against what they've made of themselves to date

Thinking back to you
I was looking out for you, were you looking out for me?
This is everything about everyone I've ever known

One more time
This year maybe
'Cause I think it's time
We take what we said we'd learned and put it into practice

But don't take advice from me
I don't think it works like that
Don't take advice from me
I'm not entirely sure of all I've said
And I might've been wrong when I claimed
That this is everything about everyone I've ever known
Track Name: Decades
So I paid attention to the ringing in my ears
As I gladly stepped outside to talk to you about
When your questions go unanswered.
It's what you wanted to say with a still stinging pertinence

And you'll say "Maybe I was born in the wrong decade,
But I know I'll be OK"
And I'll say "It's about going".
Well you're going all the way.

Now my sister's way ahead of you in all but her years
And I'll sometimes step outside to talk to her about
Where she's been and what's planed next
And where she thinks that she might be in five years time

And I'll say "Maybe you were born in the wrong decade,
But I know you'll be OK"
And I'll say "It's about going
and well you're going all the way"

I am the sum of all I've ever done, I am my father's son
And that's what I'll take away from this.
Track Name: Homer Wells
I've been living out of these bags for a month now
Trying to make ends meet
But somehow everything I try I've tried it twice
And I'm over and outlined
So I'll be coming home a little early this evening
To where you've waited up for hours
But not a thing in this house is ours

I've been living under your shadow for weeks now
Tiptoeing round all you've said
But somehow I'm still in the way
So we'll argue for days on end
But I'm trying to get home a little early this evening
To where you've waited up for hours
But not a thing in this house is ours
You'll wait with baited breath for hours
With the bitter taste of a partnership that's soured

I know I haven't got a lot but this right here is enough without the ties.
Track Name: Magnets
Stay where you are lit upon and I'll keep running
I'll keep, keep running away from this
I've told you how it's been these last three weeks
And how if I sleep I'll not rest at all

Magnets around my heart
But I'll find a way to break out of it
Magnets surround my heart
Better find a way to break out of it

Why must I keep reminding myself of the things I no longer have?
I've told you all the things I think I need
But if I sleep I'll not rest at all

Magnets around my heart
But I'll find a way to break out of it
Magnets surround my heart
Better find a way to break out of it

You're always 10 minutes from where you need to be
With eyes shut you'll not see a thing
Well I'm always 10 minutes from where I need to be
With eyes held fast on every move she makes
Track Name: There's Fresh Snow in France
"Are you always running off?"
'No, not at all'
"'cause if it's always like this
I'm on my way home, I'm on my way home again".

"Have you always relied on this?"
'No, not at all'
"'cause for five years I've thought on this,
I'm no closer. I'm no closer at all"

There's fresh snow in France

Through a lack of eating well
And not sleeping well
It's just like this…
But all the time, but all the time

I'm not sleeping well. I'm not sleeping well.
I'm not sleeping well, no not at all.
Track Name: Bloody-Kneed
I'm bloody-kneed and seemingly lacking all common sense
But I brought this here for you
An act, as promised, to show I can come through

I don't mind what it is now, just sing me to sleep
There were mistakes and I will not forget
'Cause that year meant more to me than you could ever know
And you'll never know

I can kill time til you're free
State your case to ready me
And on a night like this
Slow motion is the best in any case

Now that I'm seeing this in light of a clear conscience
Accounting for all that we know
In all honesty I'm not even trying here

One more chance and you're showing off your charms
But this was one variant in a process you'll repeat for the next 5 years
I hope you enjoy it

I can kill time til you're free
State your case to ready me
And on a night like this
Slow motion is the best in any case

I'm still holding out hope
It's not too late for this to happen

But it's safe to say that ship has sailed
Track Name: Warren
Sing alongs: 'For Sure' and 'Honestly'.
I'm yours as long as we make it back to your house.
You see, I've worn out the last of my clever words
So for now, I'll let you do the talking.
Talk as much as you want about whatever you like.

And all the time that I sat there trying to figure you out
You're talking loudly on your phone, to all your friends about
All the times you had to sit there just waiting it out
And now we're all waiting.

My fingers are in knots 'cause the phone-calls never stop
And my hands are tied
Your friends can say what they like
'cause they don't know the half of it

And all the time that I sat there trying to figure you out
You're talking loudly on your phone, to all your friends about
All the times you had to sit there just waiting it out
And now we're all waiting.
Track Name: A Half Thought
I wanted to show you what I am
All the man that I can be
To show you what I've made of myself
But it's nothing yet

I half thought of calling you today
And half of never again
'Cause half of the things I've heard you say
I never want to hear again

I wonder where I'd be if this didn't
Matter so much to me
Everyone's satisfied but I don't see it
I don't see it

I half thought of calling you today
And half of never again
'Cause half of the things I've heard you say
I never want to hear again

But if there's one thing I've learned, it's that time is relative
And soon enough the wolf knows where you live
And he's at your door
As you're climbing up the walls, he'll let himself in
And it's not nearly enough to try and stop him

I half thought of calling you today
And half of never again
Track Name: When You Go
I hope you find all you were looking for when you go
But if you don't I'll be right here waiting

I'm sure you're fine. And you know you were right about it all.
But you know I'll be right here waiting
And you know, you know, you know I'll be right here waiting

Every time you go I hope the door won't be closed too long this time
But if you're not coming back you know I can't keep waiting

If you're not coming back I'll not keep waiting around
