Track Name: Permanence
I apologise for my heavy breathing
I know it keeps you awake
But all this late night smoking has caused my lungs to ache
All the stress built in my head
And triggered in my chest
And I always seem to find myself short of breath

I’m just trying my best to be what everyone expects of me
Honestly, are you proud of me?
I just wanna be remembered for something, for something

Then the thought crosses my mind
Just what will I leave behind?
Other than decaying bones, secondhand smoke
In someone else’s lungs and will I be missed?
Or just leave footprints of mistakes I’ve made
While searching for permanence

I’m just trying my best to be what everyone expects of me
Honestly, are you proud of me?
I just wanna be remembered for something, for something

Don’t let me be a name you forget or regret
When you look back on your life
Cause despite everything I like to think
That I was still worth your time
Track Name: Monophobia
I felt the winter chill my bones
I fell for your and all your bullshit
I can’t believe you left me out in the cold
I guess I’m destined to be alone
I’ll settle in my skin and hope
That it keeps me warm since I don’t have you

I’ve never had a way with words
But I had a way with you
Thinking about the nights where we stayed up in my room
yeah, we’d talk about the future and laugh about the past
All these thoughts of you are holding me back

I’m so sick of feeling miserable and it’s all at your expense
I’m sick of writing songs about you, but I can’t help myself
And all that shit that’s in my room
Has kept a hold on the smell of you
And I can’t shake the thought of you leaving me this way
Leaving me this way

I’ve never had a way with words
But I had a way with you
Thinking about the nights where we stayed up in my room
Yeah, we’d talk about the future and laugh about the past
All these thoughts of you are holding me back
Track Name: Homegrown
I’ve spent the past few years, finding where I don’t belong
They say my roots are too deep, I guess I’m just homegrown
The past two years, went far too fast
Especially when I learned that I haven’t grown at all

Just when I thought that I had figured it out
There was so much more I didn’t know about
Am I moving too slow, or is life too fast?

If there’s a plan for me
Then why am I running in circles going nowhere fast?
If there’s a plan for me
Can you please tell me what it is
So I can stop losing sleep over this?

It seems that everyone my age is having kids, getting engaged
Am I the curse to my family name, cause I refused the path they laid?
Cos I’m deeper in debt and I’m further behind
And It seems like I spent most of my life
Complaining about the fact I’m always tired
I’ll never be the ones that I admire

If there’s a plan for me
Then why am I running in circles going nowhere fast?
If there’s a plan for me
Can you please tell me what it is
So I can stop losing sleep over this?

Don’t say that it will all work out in the end
Cause I’ve been here for twenty years and that hasn’t happened yet
I refuse to follow blindly, just because you asked politely
Why should I believe in something, that doesn’t believe in me?

If there’s a plan for me
Then why am I running in circles going nowhere fast?
If there’s a plan for me
Can you please tell me what it is
So I can stop losing sleep over this?
Track Name: Eston Square
The silence screams louder than we ever could
I can’t seem to hate you but I know that I should
I don’t owe you anything, but you sure as hell owe me
You said to come round, to try and talk this out
But there’s nothing left to be said
No, there’s nothing left

All those nights that I spent on your floor
They don’t mean anything, anymore
And now you're bed is empty
Your hard wood floor resents me
So cut me up, stitch me back together
I’ll hold on for, better weather

Would It kill you to act your age?
And do anything but disengage?
I’m far too slow to walk your pace
I hate the fallout, the pain that it brings
Don’t claim to me that you have higher ground
That you’ve moved on and your happy now
We’ll always have those nights off Eston Square
Every time I’m lost, I trace my steps here

All those nights that I spent on your floor
They don’t mean anything, anymore
And now you're bed is empty
Your hard wood floor resents me
So cut me up, stitch me back together
I’ll hold on for, better weather

Think I should tell you, but what good would that do?
You’ve made a mess, you’ve made a wreck out of me
If you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything
But I can stand just fine without you
