Track Name: Breaking Record
Is this the cure or just another pill for me to take,
and am I more than just another heart for you to break?

He's in love without you.

I want you back and nothing's gonna stand in my way
but for the lack, and nothing's any different today.

He's in love without you.
Track Name: What Happened
Will everything be okay?
We used to say that someday we would forgive our mistakes.

Wipe the spit from your cheek.

Take what you want on your way.

Broken pictures you keep.

I knew that you'd make me pay.

Will we be?

Will we ever be okay?

I think of her. I think she hurts.

Oh, this can only get better.

Darling what happened?

I'll leave you as the day breaks, the streets will echo your face.
Will we ever be okay?

Wipe the spit from your cheek.

I've nothing left now to take.

Broken pictures you keep.

And All my dreams are in flakes.

Will we be?

We can't forgive these mistakes.

Darling what happened?
Track Name: Orca
You said I was trying too hard,
I'm stoned outside your windows again.
I call up but your lights are off,
won't you come down and tell me I'm lost?

You said I was trying too hard,
I'm stoned outside your windows again.
I call up but your lights are off,
won't you come down and tell me I'm loved?
Track Name: Yet
Got up to leave, she took my hand and then she said,
'We never speak no more, or have I lost you yet?'
Shook out my teeth I dropped my line and then I left.
We never keep no score, I haven't lost you yet.

She said: 'I am the seventh wave'.
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
Eyes disguise our fate,
I never tried to say
you tried to late.

I was disinclined
to ever turn away,
you held my mind.

Ides decide our fate,
I never tried to say
you tried to late.

Tides were misaligned,
you know I wouldn't say
you were unkind.
Track Name: Disco
Older in lights,
this is why we cry.

Shadows dance, how did we end up like this?
Losing faith but we can reminice.
Flashing lights, I can never resist.
Aim for her, but it's you I miss.

Older in lights,
this is why we cry.

Colder in nights,
this is why we lie.

Shadows dance, how did we end up like this?
Losing faith but we can reminice.
Flashing lights, I can never resist.
Aim for her, but it's you I miss.

Girls, they come falling 'round.
Track Name: Afterglow
Young hearts don't break

I've been standing here for a long time,
you're not late but I'm not waiting.
Cigarette burns into ash, now
shutters close and you're in my head.
Hand slips down and eyelids open,
falling flame may go unnoticed.
Embers glow to light the curtain,
you will leave me so...

Young hearts don't break,
and if you bend them out of shape.

I've been sitting here for a long time,
useless state but I'm not aching.
Memories of slow romance now
fill the charred remains of my head.
Hand slips down and eyelids open,
falling flame may go unnoticed.
Embers glow to light the curtain,
you will leave me so...
Track Name: Storage Cupboard
Your broken heart is all I want.
And these shapes of lovers...

Broken shapes, they tessellate
all the mistakes in our mosaics.

Another part is all I want.
And the shapes of lovers
dip below the covers.
Track Name: Laughter in the Dark
Screaming magazine eyes at him,
she turns the key and asks him in.

Eyes like mine.

Maybe I was right.

Do you hear another sound
that echoes in the night?

Screaming magazine eyes at him,
she turns the key and asks him in,
she turns the screw and asks him in.
Track Name: Ilyana
We were enemies,
she said 'we'll be friends someday'.
She took everything from me.

You've been wasting too much time racing through my mind.

'Let me take you home.'
She said 'you don't know the way'.
I don't wanna be alone.

You've been wasting too much time laying on my mind.

You've been taking all my time racing through my mind.
You've been wasting all my time...
Track Name: Sacrifice Eliza
She's infected with the answers.
She knows our futures, our lives in reverse.

Sacrifice Eliza.

Raise her up to the dying sun.
Cut her throat and save everyone.

We know Eliza, she's a liar,
she can't be trusted with out untold lives.
