about

Wow. An EP...cool stuff...

I don't really like to admit that its about my life, but in the end this whole EP is a vent as well as huge step ahead so yeah.

Enjoy :) whether that means crying yourself to sleep listening to it, crying to yourself on public transport listening to it, crying to yourself at home listening to it or actually genuinely enjoying it. Its a pretty sad EP.

Track Name: Rica
The sound of an empty running train
Plays on repeat in my head
My whole body aches
And screams for bed

Chain smoked my lungs to
Dust and debris tried to cool
The burn with cheap drinks

Yet I am free
Only because
I keep running

Running away
Running away from the pain

Not a sound but the rattling carriage
Enough to disturb my sleep
Nobody to talk to
And nothing to see outside

In the black painted night
Weary eyes speak of
Street lights that glow alone in the
Sleepy suburbs passing by

Running
Running
Running
Running away
Running away from the pain
Running away
Running away from the pain

I've been on this train forever
Just me
Yet I'm free
A time of nothing
No need no obligation
Just breathe

Running
Running
Why are you running away
Running away from the pain
Why are you afraid
Afraid of the pain

This train keeps on running running running running away
This train keeps on running running running running

Not for long
Track Name: Central Station
The familiar taste of bacon and egg
mcmuffins fills the air
The throng of blank faces pouring
into the station
backpacks and briefcases
click and clack
As I turn my back away and enter the lonely train

And I find a four seat spot
Sit there on my own

And I put my legs up
And my head down

The unsuspecting victim of the very
force that controls me
Its all in my mind
Maybe if I drink coffee all the time I'll be fine

I'll be fine
I'll be fine
I''ll be fine
I'll be fine

I'll be fine just laying here
watching the ants on the walls
I have shed my skin
I have nothing left at all
Track Name: Save Me
Lying on the floor
Can't sleep anymore
And the television screen
Is screaming at me

The walls are alive
They sit by my side
And they whisper to me
Things about the television screen

save me

Knock knocking at my door
Can't take it anymore
I know there is no one there
It's all in my head

Shadows on the wall
They watch me fall
In to my own
In to my own

save me
save me

save me
save me
The shadows on the wall
They watch me fall
Into my own
Into my own

Lying on the floor
Can't sleep anymore
And the television screen
Is screaming at me

It seems like things repeat
All the time for me
I was doing this yesterday
Why is it always the same

Save me

I'm fine if you look at me
In my head i'm on my knees
and the escape I think I need
is the reason that I bleed

Save me
Save me

save me
save me
The shadows on the wall
They watch me fall
Into my own
Into my own
Track Name: Sinking/Sunken
Outta chances
Outta my mind
Outta ideas
lost in time

I don't know
Where to go
From here
Here

I can't do this alone
Get me on my feet
Take me home
This hurts more than you would know
No matter how little I show
I don't wanna know

The sun cracks the horizon
Cracks the gaps in the dusty blinds
Burns my sore eyes
Clouds cover the sky
Days becomes night
and I take flight

Aren't you happy
You're having fun
Isn't this what you want
Or is it something more
Something more than this

You're a sinking ship
You're a sinking ship

I can't do this alone
Get me on my feet
Take me home
This hurts more than you would know
No matter how little I show
I don't wanna know

You're a sinking ship
(I don't know where to go)
You're a sinking ship
(I can't do this alone)
You're a sinking ship
(Take me home)
You're sunken
