Track Name: In The Company of Old Friends
Seventeen letters, arranged in my head
Thrown to the river, and destined to spread
But I have not won,
I am still sweating over every conceivable word
There is no victory that I

Can't stop the ink bleeding right into my skin
It's a lie, I'm not sure if this even means anything.

So I crawled from the river, and ran to my bed
A parade for the demons that tear me to shreds
But you're pissing blood, the bruises you wear are fading
It gets stuck in my throat, the stories you tell still frighten me

I can't stop the ink bleeding right into my skin
Even now, I'm not sure that it even means anything

'Cause we put such faith in such little things
We can talk it over if it helps
And I couldn't wait to return to what I recognised as familiar
In the company of old friends
Track Name: Alabama, Come Clean
You are mine, forever ahead
That old familiar feeling starts to grow inside you
'Till you're feeling sick, well I feel it too

It's not quite as poetic as something you might have said
Standing on the verge of something pure but unintended
Slowly crawling out of our heads
Speak to me for real, hey.

We get old, somewhere ahead
It's already Sunday night, and I haven't done enough again

Its not quite as poetic as something you might have said
Standing on the verge of something pure but unintended
Slowly crawling out of our heads
Speak to me for real,
All it needed was a call
Its right in front of us, hey
Track Name: The Sum Of Ours
Does the realisation sting?
Your God is a need for those scared to be alone, scared to be alone.

So you emptied your head out of promises made to those scared to let you go, scared to let you go.

But a man of many voices got close to your heart
Desperate to stay in the game
And I should have made a difference I could have played a part, greater than the sum of ours

So just let this one play out
Crawling on your knees
This is who you are
Embrace uncertainty

But a man of many voices got close to your heart
Desperate to stay in the game
And I should have made a difference I could have played a part, greater than the sum of ours

Yeah and I used to feel alone, before I turned the lights on and found everything I thought that I'd been missing
Never solved any problems by lying in bed,patiently underground
Track Name: Noises
Looking out tonight, stoney eyed
But I can't see the line, the one that burns around my wrists
Do empty bottles talk, and do they lie?
My empty pages speak much louder than the words that I write

But you were loved x 2
You were loved perhaps more than you could know.

Are we too serious to force a smile?
'Cause every night before I sleep laugh until I cry
But I am hardly one to talk, I'm barely keeping in time
If I am guilty pull me in, it may not be subtle but it's right
Track Name: Shiver
In the wreckage, when it all comes down,
Could you put pressure on the wound?
All the mistakes, we've been happy to ignore
Have left me feeling kinda slow

In the wreckage, of an old grey house
Could you still settle in the room?
And the four walls, lean forwards creeping in
There are no memories to show

And I will fall back in
Like stones into the shallow river
While you patch up your boat
Both silently we let ourselves shiver

In the wreckage of an old grey body
Could you put pressure on his wounds
And rebuild him, day by letter
'Till he has something left to show

And I will fall back in
Like stones into the shallow river
While you patch up your boat
Both silently we let ourselves,
Silently we let ourselves shiver x 4

Could you put pressure on the wound
'Cause it's slowly turning, the cracks begin to show
Could you forget about your woes?
Both silently we let ourselves, silently we let ourselves shiver x2
