Track Name: Underperformer
You've had your fun now it's my turn,
I'll be on hand to watch you burn.
Put me down again, I dare you.
I've done so much wrong,
And I'm finding a way to be a better me,
'Cause I can't see, a reason to stand by me.

I've been in the wrong, so many times before.

And I'm trying, always trying.
Fighting to fix the wrongs I've made.
But it isn't like me to wallow in self pity,
Get the fuck up, chill out.
Sort this shit and turn your life around.

Under performer,
I'm not angry that's just my face,
Take a look again, take a look again.

Another cliche,
Cry me a river then drown in it, or run away.
Just run away.

I've been in the wrong, so many times before.

And I'm trying, always trying.
Fighting to fix the wrongs I've made.
But it isn't like me to wallow in self pity,
Get the fuck up, chill out.
Sort this shit and turn your life around.

(breakdown/solo)


And I'm trying, always trying.
Fighting to fix the wrongs I've made.
But it isn't like me to wallow in self pity,
Get the fuck up, chill out.
Sort this shit and turn your life around now.
Track Name: The End Game
I've never been this far from home,
Take a look at yourself, take a look at the way you move around me,
The way you move around me.

Avoiding my gaze, looking away
You don't want to see me,
Turning away, nothing to say
Like it even matters at all.

There's a reason you can't face me anymore,
It's 'cause you messed up, you fucked up,
And you're the one hat ended up gone.
And now you're never going to see me again.
Is that what you wanted? Is that what you needed?
To get away?

Who's gone? Who left?
Was it me or you?
I stopped to think but I didn't want to.
I left you, that's the truth.

Avoiding my gaze, looking away
You don't want to see me,
Turning away, nothing to say
Like it even matters at all.

There's a reason you can't face me anymore,
It's 'cause you messed up, you fucked up,
And you're the one hat ended up gone.
And now you're never going to see me again.
Is that what you wanted? Is that what you needed?
To get away?

To get away.
Track Name: Walking Contradiction
I'm a walking contradiction, sat down.
I'll tell you line up in a circle,
To sit alone with people,
And to sit in the corner of a round room.

Don't trust me, my word means everything.
Trustworthy, until you need something.
'Cause I'm just me, I won't apologise,
I'm a walking contradiction, just one of those guys.

Wanting to be quiet, but never shutting up.
I hate being wasteful, but watch the rubbish pile up.
'Cause I'm tired, but I'm staying up.
Because I'm difficult but easy,
Nothing and everything pleases me.

Don't trust me, my word means everything.
Trustworthy, until you need something.
'Cause I'm just me, I won't apologise,
I'm a walking contradiction, just one of those guys.

I'm a walking contradiction,
I don't make any sense.
I'm a walking contradiction,
I make perfect sense.

Don't trust me, my word means everything.
Trustworthy, until you need something.
'Cause I'm just me, I won't apologise,
I'm a walking contradiction, just one of those guys.
Track Name: Blush
When winter comes it's not as cold as you,
Your mood is dragging me down.
Dragging me down, woah.
Take a look around again,
Tell me what you see again,
Did you think I didn't notice you?

It seems to be, everyone but me.

I've got a habit of playing with fire,
Pushing it as far as I can go,
I'll never stop until I'm caught,
I should have always fucking made sure,
I will never change.

When you think that you know but you don't,
When it feels like the world, has got you right by the throat.

I've got a habit of playing with fire,
Pushing it as far as I can go,
I'll never stop until I'm caught,
I should have always fucking made sure,
I will never change.
Track Name: Good Old Days
You were the almost,
You were the maybe,
The could-have-been, the should-have-been,
But you bored me.
And you played me,
And in the end we drifted away.

Tell me to write a story about,
The good old days,
Where we used to say that everything will be this way.

This is the way it's been for far too long,
Sitting on my hands and writing songs about the doubt,
That we could have ever been so much more.
I hit the bottom, I couldn't stop myself from messing this all up,
Convinced myself it's just my luck.

Tell me to write a story about,
The good old days,
Where we used to say that everything will be this way.

Tell me to write a story about,
The good old days,
Where we used to say that everything will be this way.
Track Name: Fit For A King
Don't you tell me how to live my life,
These are my own mistakes to make.
Let me make them, let me learn from them,
Let me find a better way.

This is not about you,
But if the shoe fits fucking wear it.
This is not about you..

You gave up on us, so we give up on you.
We started something and we'll see this through,
But then I ran away, never had a chance to try and stay,
'Cause I never want to see you again.

Don't look for happiness in the same place you lost it,
Maybe you're thinking the same as me, and I'm just wasting time?
Everyone changes around me,
I just get older and more angry

This is not about you,
But if the shoe fits fucking wear it.
This is not about you..

You gave up on us, so we give up on you.
We started something and we'll see this through,
But then I ran away, never had a chance to try and stay,
'Cause I never want to see you again.

FIT FOR A KING (x2)


You gave up on us, so we give up on you.
We started something and we'll see this through,
But then I ran away, never had a chance to try and stay,
'Cause I never want to see you again.
