Track Name: Drowned Out
i have only half been sleeping
everybody talks too loud
it's worse into the evening
now i don't see you around

and i don't wanna live
don't wanna feel anything
if this is all that there is each time anyway

i don't wanna start
cause i can't finish anything
when still it will not matter at all either way

i have only half been eating
everybody talks too loud
if i could only hear your breathing
but i don't see you around

and i don't wanna live
don't wanna feel anything
if this is all that there is each time anyway

i don't wanna start
cause i don't finish anything
when still it will not matter at all either way

that song comes on again
you try to take a stand
your voice is drowned out by the sound
lost into the ether
sinks in a little deeper
maybe i'll forget him soon

but how can I define
these depths so indefinite

no i won't outgrow
this deepened drone sound

no it does not show
but drowns the good out
Track Name: Carpool
we parked the car down by the sea and wandered in
they lit a nearby park with phosphorescent light
forms took shape as dusk fell late with northwest winds
too cold to sleep through the night we were left feeling restless and reckless

we set off so careless in our plight, destruction in our wake
not careful or selective, no, feeling like nothing was safe
Track Name: Set Lines
blur out the set
lines for a life

(slow 'til it stops
eventually fades off)

for unclear empty
plans of change

(cut out the cost
leave at a loss)

look forward but
never move

keep everything the same

(aim and cannot
it fades on the spot)

oh my god
i'll never get out
or leave this now

oh my god
i think that i
might leave this now
Track Name: The Slow Pass
and the colour of the walls
you could not sleep throughout the summer
on the same bed where we lay with one another
and the slow pass
in the time we had

and hidden from your mum
when we got ash into the carpet
when the river burst its banks into the gardens
and the white flag
when things got bad

and the cool air in the bus
that we would catch across the county
every weekend all the things
that could not move me
and the way back
when the night drew fast

on the low roof or the lawn
on which you lay beside your brother
in the pale before you met me
at the party
and the nerve gas
and the nerve he had

there are things eternal inside of my head
the walk the, end of the movie
the bleak light, the end of your bed
the walls, the size of your body

didn't the time pass slow
