Track Name: Oblivion
Sister, won't you show me the way
Sister, won't you pray
Next stop: oblivion
Sister, won't you wait

Nothing else blows the pain away
So I chose this

With time, you'll see I'm right
With time, you'll cry
Sister, take me to the light
Sister, it's time

Nothing else blows the pain away
So I chose this

Punk, the one thing that blows the pain away
Track Name: *love not included
There was a child
Who lived on Cliffe Lane
There was a time that was enough
Then as he grew
His world fell apart
That was the point when I met you

So you stood me up
And you let me down
Just like the rest
Playing with my mind

First you breathe me in
Then you spit me out
Always the same
That's what I think about love*

I switched off hope
Straightened the circle
There was a time I was enough
You softened my core
And I wanted more
A mirage of home in your arms

*love not included
Track Name: River Phoenix
I wanna live in the sun, like River Phoenix
I wanna die young, like River
Don't wanna save the world, like River Phoenix
Just wanna be loved by girls, like River

Sorry for being me
My ambition brings me misery

Do you read me?
Do you really see?

Sometimes, I think of death in the night
Though I know it's such a waste of life

Does the world need me
If I just add to greed?

I wanna live in the sun, like River Phoenix
I wanna die young, like River
Don't wanna save the world, like River Phoenix
Just wanna be loved by girls, forever
Track Name: The Girlfriend Experience
Halos are overrated
Hate every woman I ever dated
Beside me, as you reside in history
It's all too plastic for me

It's all too plastic for me

Somewhere alien to reality
Is where you hid yourself from me
It's just a reverse fantasy
It's all too plastic for me

It's all too plastic for me
Track Name: Lost in Dystopia
She made my world colourless, now I just wander Earth
She tried to kill my passion
As I walk this wasteland, won't be looking for another her

I'm just so lost in Dystopia
I'm just so lost in Dystopia
I'm just so lost

This is the part of the story where I really need it to turn around
But nothing's coming to save me
I see the sunset and wish for the answers to be found

I'm just so lost in Dystopia
I'm just so lost in Dystopia
I'm just so lost
Track Name: Ride the Styx
Wish I could forget how good that first hit felt
Darkest secret is I wish I was someone else
I was thinking we could try and go get some help
Addicts always avoid taking blame themselves

Don't you ride the Styx

Never gonna kick this habit by ourselves
Dragon chasin' ain't a recipe for health

Don't you ride the Styx

Some things are better left as fantasy
Track Name: No Such Thing
Poem on my wrist
Smudged and faded
Alice in delirium
Another one I hated

Oestrogen, testosterone and glue
Emptiness, self-doubt and now, you

Was always chasing that fleeting joy
Running from that sinking feeling
She asked “Are you for real, boy?
Or do you still think there's no such thing?”

Put to the test
Tired and jaded
Alice through the tinted glass
It was long enough I waited

“Do you still think there's no such thing?”
Track Name: Inverse Paradise
Cruising in ruins
Keep your heart intact
Enter the beehive
And watch your mood ring turn to black

Into the annex
Her, minus the smile
It's just a vortex
When she takes a sip from the vial

Colour me, colour me in

Ruined, in cruise
The glass slipper cracks
Into the bloodstream
With your mood ring fixed to black

Colour me, colour me in
Track Name: Lenore
You're in the news tonight
Never one to stray
I long to reunite
and I now know a way

Only a gunshot, only a gunshot away
Only a gunshot, only a gunshot away
Only a wrong turn from having a whole new fate
Only a gunshot, only a gunshot away

You were stolen that winter night
It eclipsed what I knew as pain
Things will never be alright
But I'll be with you again

Only a gunshot, only a gunshot away
Only a gunshot, only a gunshot away
Only a wrong turn from having a whole new fate
Only a gunshot, only a gunshot away
Track Name: Distress Signal
My baby's pregnant, it's not mine
Love is a scam, it's a lie

Caught in a tailspin, by design
Once again, I turn to the sky

Throw me a lifeline
Pass me anything
That can stop me drifting out to sea

Hear my distress call
Heed my distraught voice
Dial six nine two nine nine three

At the beginning, it's all smiles
Just you give it a while

Throw me a lifeline
Pass me anything
That can stop me drifting out to sea

Hear my distress call
Heed my distraught voice
Dial six nine two nine nine three
