Track Name: Animal
Thirteen beers and a bad taste in my mouth
Fell asleep on the last train headed south
Passing through the suburbs of this town
Comatose and I’m not coming out

But I’m not an animal
I won’t die here for you
Take those worried eyes off me
Carry me home I can’t breathe
And let me fall into an empty sleep

Thirteen beers and a bad taste in my mouth
How the hell did I end up down south
I don’t live in the suburbs of this town
Someone help me how do I get out

I’m not an animal
I won’t die here for you
Take those worried eyes off me
Carry me home I can’t breathe
And let me crawl into an empty sleep

Take those worried eyes off me
Carry me home I can’t breathe
And let me crawl into an empty sleep
Track Name: Brooklyn
I watched you fly on the rides at Coney Island
The wind was biting
The sky was red burnt
You looked just like birds overhead

You took polaroids of a man proposing
Everyone was applauding
Arcade machines sang on
As night turned to dawn then to light

I was weak and tired
The night before was a blur
The taxi drove too fast
The skyline rushing past our window
But oh! How we danced!
To the country band
We drank and we swayed
You told everyone it’s your birthday
Then we walked home to Brooklyn
And both of us were freezing
And I asked what you were doing with your life

I see you fading and I live across an ocean
I talked you out of staying but I don’t know when you’ll come back
You said don’t worry you don’t need anybody
You’re living out your dreams in New York

The sun came up behind us and everything turned to rust
And birds sang to us as we walked
And I know you’ll be alright
You say I can’t let things lie
I know you’re right you’re right
Track Name: Fractures
I crumbled mountains under my feet
I took to the sky carelessly
And when I got nowhere I fell to my knees
Faced with face I swear this isn’t me
I’ve no idea who this imposter could be
And there’s no way of knowing so carry on growing at least

We’re chasing laughter, pasting up the fractures
And I know I can’t match up to her
So I’ll be this for you if you want me to
And I’ll love you endlessly
If you can pretend to love me

You left to go chase my dreams
I applauded louder than I screamed
And that’s the way that it should be

We’re chasing laughter, pasting up the fractures
And I know I can’t match up to her
So I’ll be what you need even if it kills me
And I’ll love you endlessly
If you can pretend
If you can pretend to love me
Track Name: Creatures
I hear creaks at night
In a crimson light
Feel the ground shake
Half asleep half awake
I see creatures
They're my failures
Watch them crawl
Across every wall

Lose the battle
And lose the war

I am tired
I look older
But there’s no truth
In the glory of youth

Lose the battle
And lose the war
Lose the battle
And lose the war

We're pretending
Every day pretending
We go places and we act happy
But in the night our anger
Makes a monument
Between us
