Track Name: Thylacine
Forget about the human race well this task should show me how. I’ve got my boots and the will to chase some myth that can’t live now.

I don’t know what you’ve got from me but I hope it’s something good. I spoke my words with certainty not thinking if I should.

This empty land and it’s beasts within have played tricks on my mind. From west to east, I have been but there’s no prize here to find. But I’ll keep searching here, cause home is what I fear.

I don’t know what you’ve got from me but I hope it’s something good. I spoke my words with certainty not thinking if I should. Not thinking if I should.

But there’s warmth in facial recognition and your smile writes off all that I’ve written. You will always be my ignition. It’s too late, sorry I never listened.
Track Name: Unspoken
We should just talk, leave nothing unspoken or hanging from the chest. Go for a walk until silence is broken, see friendship at it's best.

You'd wait to call and then resist, your ego got too big. I'd paint the walls full of this memory I don't see around no more.

Speak what is true and don't leave me hoping that what's said is not. Cause out of the blue, you are not coping with all that we've got.

You'd wait to call and then resist, your ego got too big. I'd paint the walls full of this memory I don't see around no more.

Can't you see nothing's changed? You've just let all the colour fade.

We should have talked, left nothing unspoken or hanging from the chest. Domestic war is not what I'd chosen, but that's all that's left.
Track Name: Gin & Tonic
I found it all running out of space, you can't find no love if you cannot know grace. Did you feel small? A little out of place? You saw nothing up above that could have your thoughts replaced.

Everything's so ironic, when you feel your own character shift. Give me some Gin & Tonic while I make my way out of here.

I’ve never been one that needs to complain but now it’s what I want so listen to me say that I’d do it all again and yes well I would change the way I spoke truth when I should have restrained.

Now I’m thinking back, when good times had no end. The beliefs I had never did depend on arriving at some heaven in the sky. No, that’s just a thought you’d have before you die.

Everything's so ironic, when you feel your own character shift. Give me some Gin & Tonic while I make my way out of here.

Sing your songs they've all had their day. These diamond rings and gold are the only things that never seem to fade.

Cause everything, everything's fading.
Track Name: EOI
It’s a strong start to the weak end, I’ve finally left my room. But I know this exploration could leave me feeling vacant so I’d best head back there soon.

I’ve never had too much on my resume, I don’t do well with lies. I hate telling people that I’m better than I am. I wasn’t born with a sense of pride.

I’ve found joy in odd places where money can’t be spent. It’s filled with familiar faces lacking common sense.

I tried to impress with big abbreviations it didn’t help the situation. I put up my hand for the job and applied. I didn’t get an E.O.I but I don’t care.

I’ve found joy in odd places where money can’t be spent. It’s filled with familiar faces lacking common sense.

Then there’s you. You seem to pull it off but you’re someone that I’m not and I’m hoping that’s ok. Cause I’d hate to see you leave.

I’d like to let you know I’ll keep you close if you’ll ignore the fact I’m unemployed but I’ll never toy with your money. I like you in my life cause we’ve spent time and I’d like more please. I know that I’m worse off where you are not so stay here for me.
Track Name: Permanent
You’ve got this all figured out, you can’t give this all away. You thought of our past without a doubt but not of the things that could change.

Well I felt something before a friend should never have to feel. It was more than lovely at first but now I can’t know if it will heal.

‘I don’t need this to fall’. That’s what you spoke in my ear. ‘I don’t need this at all’. Someone will always be here.

He came along to fill up some gaps that I felt had brought down my cheer. Before too long we could all see the cracks of a boy who’s intentions were clear.

Well I felt something before a friend should never have to feel. It was more than lovely at the time but now I can’t know if it will heal.

‘I don’t need this to fall’. That’s what you spoke in my ear. ‘I don’t need this at all’. Someone will always be here.
Track Name: Note To Self
I can’t help but notice you moving along from shit guitars in hopeless songs. You’ve passed that stage, you’re shooting for the life we all hope to explore.

All eyes on you, let’s hit the lights as people decide that the show must go on.

I won’t go calling this unfair. I’ve put myself out there and even dared to think of the limelight facing me while I’m chasing, living breathing a dream.

All eyes on you, let’s hit the lights as people decide that the show must go on.

In a note to myself, I wrote some things to do. In a note to myself, I hoped for some help from you.

All eyes on you, let’s hit the lights as people decide that the show must go on.
