Track Name: I Missed Out
I’ve gone astray in so many ways
I’ve lost a time and sense of place
But I’ll be coming home
and you’ll be where I’ve gone so, don’t go
I can’t be out of reach now
Sober me, torture me
When we take each other out

I’ve left alone from so many homes
I’ve felt so wrong in my own song
And when the getting’s good
Maybe I could have it, savage
Yeah I know I’m not supposed to
Ask for you, losing you,
It’s the worst thing I could do but,
I missed out on the truth

You told me your dreams
And I missed out on the scene
I was so far away, oh so far gone
You taught me control
Pulled me out of this hole
But I wish it would work out
I wish I was there now.
Track Name: Look in the Trees
Island’s a dream, so solitary
The birds of NZ, they would call out to me
It’s true, they were imaginary, all I know
It’s true, look in the trees next to Holloway Road
Set in stone

You were a dream I kept forgetting
Your eyes under sunglasses gazed into me
It’s true, they were imaginary, all I know
It’s true, look in the reflections of every home
Set in stone
Track Name: Prolonging
You were born in the morn, only an orphan
You were taken from me, all torn at the seams
No it didn’t work out, how could it work out?
And I told you before, I know that you know

Yeah, yeah, yeah
We’ve been following all our lives
Speak up, little tired eyes

You were wrong in the now, wrong in the past tense
You had myriad ways, you’d fallen from grace
And it showed on your face, pursed on your lips
Echoing to the street, out on the steep hills

Yeah, yeah, yeah
We’ve been grabbing at empty hands
The same fists, they’re always empty
Track Name: There Have Been Thefts
Show me the way they took you out
There have been thefts in this town
Show me the way they wore you down
You fell from so far, you fell from so far

Song of praise, I told you so
Nothing is the same you know,
And never will be
The good times in high school
When we could see you and talk to you

So show me the way
You made an escape, you made an escape

Show me the way they took you out
There have been thefts in this town
Show me the way they wore you down
You fell from so far, you fell from so far
Track Name: Post-Hardcore
I'm post-hardcore and we all know how that goes
I'm post-hardcore and we all know how that goes
After all those endless afternoons
I swore I'd leave La Jolla soon
I said I'd die before the beach swallows me whole

I'm post-hardcore and we never had control
I'm post-hardcore and we never had control
Dipping out on internships for graduates
I had the hardest time
Accepting certain people's fate, accepting mine

Again and again
Until you are drone
These friends of your friends
All still are drone

I'm post-hardcore and we never got our bread
I'm post-hardcore and we always felt this dead
Always but not forever girl
I thought I was so hardcore before
But that was a dream and all I'd seen
18 to 21
Sold our souls for a notion/an ocean

Again and again
Until you are drone
These friends of your friends
All still are drone
They are drone
