about

This is our first studio EP. Although our sound has evolved in a lot of ways since recording this album, we're still extremely proud of it and feel it perfectly shows where we started and how far we've come.

Track Name: Can't stand a second
And why can't you
Say for once how you feel
And not what
You want from me

But you could never really be the one
Who took this
To your heart
I took this to my heart

So tell me
What I want to hear
I can't be the one
To catch all of your tears
So tell me
What I want to hear
I can't be the one
To catch all of your tears

And day two
When dad'll finally see what you mean
And I can't
Handle a second of it
But I will try,
To say, what I
Really mean, really mean,
One more last time

So tell me
What I want to hear
I can't be the one
to catch all of your tears
So tell me
What I want to hear
I can't be the one
to catch all of your tears
Track Name: November//December
30 seconds left on the clock
And I don't know how far I've got
But you can see
Everything this is doing to me
You tried to say
But every time you just got in the way
Why cant you see
That we will always be in the lead

And you tried to bring me down
You tried to ruin what we found
But we will. be fine, no
It's you who will fall short of the line

And how do you think
And how do you feel
When everything inside
Doesn't feel real?
And how do you think
And how do you feel
When everything inside
Doesn't feel real?

To me, you're such a mess
Take two steps backwards and forget about the rest
You tried to say
But as usual, you got in my way

And how do you think
And how do you feel
When everything inside
Doesn't feel real?
And how do you think
And how do you feel
When everything inside
Doesn't feel real?

So tell me something
Tell me anything
I just want to hear words
Fall from your mouth
A piece of paper
A kitchen knife
I still feel
Shes taken, taken her life

Life
Life
She's taken
Taken

I felt what I could never see
And I could never really be
A million miles away from you
Right now
But how do you justify
When every single dirty lie
Is killing me
And I'm a million miles away

And how do you think
And how do you feel
When everything inside
Doesn't feel real?
And how do you think
And how do you feel
When everything inside
Doesn't feel real?
Track Name: Something's got to give
She
Blew me away
Weak at the knees
Had everything that I wanted
And I chased and I fought
But I never would have thought
That the end
Would be so bittersweet

So bittersweet

And I felt like
I was flying so high
You couldn't stop us
No matter how hard you try
But how was I supposed to know
That this love was all a show
She said "It's golden"
But I prefer it's broken

You put
put the fire in my heart
extinguished all my fears
why couldn't I see this before
And I never thought
you'd sink this low
My heart was open
But now I think you should go

So you can keep
Your dirty hands to yourself
Take two steps backwards
And take a good look at yourself
And I still don't know why
You did this to me
You did this
To me

And you put
put the fire in my heart
extinguished all my fears
why couldn't I see this before
And I never thought
you'd sink this low
My heart was open
But now I think you should go

And this road we have come
Has been a long and rough one
But you have no intention of
Letting this become love

And you put
put the fire in my heart
extinguished all my fears
why couldn't I see this before
And I never thought
you'd sink this low
My heart was open
But now I think you should go

You should go
You should go
I think it's time you went home
You went home
You went home
I think it's time that you left
Me
Don't want you
Don't need you no more
No more
No more
Track Name: Here's to you, kid
Has the time
Come now
To lay this to rest
We've tried
So hard
And given our best

The lights are fading now
And I'm struggling to see
A bright future without misery
I stand tall
I stand firm
Searching through all the lessons I've learned

Will you let go
Will you let go
Don't think I can handle much more of this
You can say no
You can say no
And we can finally get what we wished

We've come
A long way
Can't even see the start
We don't want
To go
Any further if it means us being apart

You're down
Down, down, on your knees
You're begging
Begging me "Please don't leave!"
And I, will not
I'm happy with everything that we've got

Will you let go
Will you let go
Don't think I can handle much more of this
You can say no
You can say no
And we can finally get what we wished

I can't, I can't, I can't
Seem to let go
I can't, I can't, I can't
Seem to say no
I can't, I can't, I can't
I can't, I can't, I can't
Seem to let go
I can't, I can't, I can't
Seem to say no
I can't, I can't, I can't

Will you let go
Will you let go
Don't think I can handle much more of this
You can say no
You can say no
And we can finally get what we wished
Track Name: And I...
And I
Never wanted
Never could
Be the one to let this die
Tried so hard
To let you see
How this
Really is
But you
With that look in your eye
Threw it right back in my face
And you
With that look of disgust
That look of mistrust

Something takes a hold of me
And it's pulling me down, pulling me down
And I can't - something takes a hold of me,
And it's pulling me down, pulling me down

You missed the point
Tried and tested
This love you infested
With your petty lies
With or without you
I know I can get through
This shitty life
How can you say
That you would never go away
Go away
Oh no

Something takes a hold of me
And it's pulling me down, pulling me down
And I can't - something takes a hold of me,
And it's pulling me down, pulling me down,
Something takes a hold of me
And I can't - I can't seem to breathe
Oh no, and I can't
And I won't

Why can't you let me go
Why can't you let this go, oh no

Something takes a hold of me
And it's pulling me down, pulling me down
And I can't - something takes a hold of me,
And it's pulling me down, pulling me down,
Something takes a hold of me
And I can't - I can't seem to breathe
Track Name: Too little, too late
Without warning
They tore this down
Without a thought
Down to the ground
A wars been brewing
And nothing we can do
Just as usual
Expected to wade through

The time has come now
To leave this place
They had the chance now
But looked what we've faced
It's a long road, It's a hard trip
Waiting too long for the scales to tip
The time has come now
To leave this place
They had the chance now
But looked what we've faced
It's a long road, It's a hard trip
Waiting too long for the scales to tip

To tip
To tip

A storms been brewing
For quite some time
We don't know what we're doing
Half of the time
And now you're staring at me here
And you don't know what to say
It's too little too late now
Can't seem to save the day

The time has come now
To leave this place
They had the chance now
But looked what we've faced
It's a long road, It's a hard trip
Waiting too long for the scales to tip
The time has come now
To leave this place
They had the chance now
But looked what we've faced
It's a long road, It's a hard trip
Waiting too long for the scales to tip

To tip
To tip

We've come so far but
It's so hard to believe
The destruction caused
by the lives that we lead
We've come so far but
It's so hard to believe
The destruction caused
by the lives that we lead

The time has come now
To leave this place
They had the chance now
But looked what we've faced
It's a long road, It's a hard trip
Waiting too long for the scales to tip
The time has come now
To leave this place
They had the chance now
But looked what we've faced
It's a long road, It's a hard trip
Waiting too long for the scales to tip
Track Name: The only reason (I hang on your every word is because the fall from your pedestal would probably kill me)
So you're over me
Well that's good for you
But you'll soon see
We're not laughing with you
So now you've come and gone
That's good for me
What you will miss
You will come to see

I've been trying
But I've been lying
To myself (to myself)
Fed up of seeing
Fed up being
So down on myself (down on myself)
Now it's a new start
And I cant wait
To be part of myself (part of myself)
So much for missing
What you wanted
This is goodbye and this is too bad

So now you want me back
Well that's no good for me
I'll only tell you once
This is my victory
No you've come and gone
You're about to fall
It's a long way down
From your pedestal

I've been trying
But I've been lying
To myself (to myself)
Fed up of seeing
Fed up being
So down on myself (down on myself)
Now it's a new start
And I cant wait
To be part of myself (part of myself)
So much for missing
What you wanted
This is goodbye and this is too bad

This is goodbye
You gotta let it go
We can't wait around
You're moving too slow
This is goodbye
You gotta let it go
We can't hang around
You're moving too slow

I've been trying
But I've been lying
To myself (to myself)
Fed up of seeing
Fed up being
So down on myself (down on myself)
Now it's a new start
And I cant wait
To be part of myself (part of myself)
So much for missing
What you wanted
This is goodbye and this is too bad

This is too bad
This is too bad
This is too bad
This is too bad
This is too bad
This is too bad
And I can't
I can't say goodbye
