Track Name: Lauralie
What made you remember
The place you said would never last forever
you were always on your knees or on the grown
& me up on my spoapbox
preaching politics to anyone
and listen is that really all it took

Use me like a stolen car
Lie back Lauralie
She said, as the headboard fall on the motel wall
Use me like a stolen car
Lie back Lauralie
She said, as the headboard fall on the motel wall

Daddys little swing set princess in a figure skate routine
in 1993
Her skates are too tight causing blisters their too much her to take
its too much for her to take

Use me like a stolen car
Lie back Lauralie
She said, as the headboard fall on the motel wall
Use me like a stolen car
Lie back Lauralie
She said, as the headboard fall on the motel wall

You’re so used to telling lies
I’m so used to hearing lies
One more flight I’ll be right home
I hope you’re just not waiting for me now
waiting for me now

Use me like a stolen car
Lie back Lauralie
She said, as the headboard fall on the motel wall
Use me like a stolen car
Lie back Lauralie
She said, as the headboard fall on the motel wall
Track Name: Fake Tan
These things come in threes,
Once broken, twice bleed.
The third one comes to understanding.
but you got your blue dress on
Screaming out my name on a New Jersey peer in vain
under-stated, wan-ting
Independent of the things you meant to me
And what the Empire thinks
I appreciate letting you down for a good time,
for such a long time.
And then you punch me in the face.

You cant hold me back, fall
You cant hold me back, fall
You cant hold me baaack
Did you ever stop to think I’d find a way
Im ok, away
I lied about needing everything
And the fact that you meant anything at all, was enough for me at all
slow-ly under-standing
this so called vacation will soon be my death,
Im so sick of the drink I need home for a rest,
take me home
take me home
take me home

When you said that, what you needed
was someone that understands the way you think
So I listened, and you pleaded
to break it down into these three simple things
Then we waited, and conceded
stop trying to make sense of this defeat

Now it’s coming back,
first colour, then black.
But you don’t like what I’ve been painting
but you got your blue dress on
and I’m screaming out your name from a Montréal bridge in vain
Slowly sensing something
Hold my breath jump and I can’t fall
Bail and blame it on the weather
Old days, always better
When letting you down for a hard time,
was such a good time.
Track Name: End and end and end (then die)
Didn't need to tell me
Got the message on my own
Doesn't mean I didn't have a plan

Open my arms
Let your life in
It's cold and I'm breathing
A place to begin
No clumsy escape, no state that you're in
6 years and a month
And we're back here again

Wanted you to tell me,
It wasn't them or thought control
You came here begging all on your own


To open your arms
Let my life in
Been looking for ages now turn yourself in
While I'm hand to mouth
You're counting degrees
That I fucked this up
You don't know where I've been

Overstayed my welcome,
Into the darkness on my own
All the time convinced...

...it's over and over
No dream to believe in
A half finished sentence
In people im seeing
We don't believe in anything x2

A vicious circle twisting
I'm in this tale spin on my own
And happy to say I won't let you in

I open my arms
Let new life in
6 years and a month and the places I've been
There's no looking back
No cardinal sin
Can keep me from thinking
I won't fail again
