Track Name: Geocache Girl
When I searched alone
Every find would go unfound
Yeah I’d stare blankly at every clue

But as a pair
Yeah with company, we’ll cover wider ground
So I’ll adventure along with you


Please tell me what I’ve been searching for
Please give me a reason not to go home and find out

There’s no better company
For searching high and low
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your latitude tonight

We’ll call on the satellites
Find treasure in the snow
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your longitude delighted
That amongst all these bounties that are scattered around
Yours was the one I found


I’ll head out on my own
To a spot concealed and sound
I’ll hide a package just out of view

Take a look by the willow tree
With ivy all around
Yeah there’s a prize waiting there for you


Please tell me what I’ve been searching for
Please give me a reason not to go home and find out


There’s no better company
For searching high and low
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your latitude tonight

We’ll call on the satellites
Find treasure in the snow
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your longitude delighted
That amongst all these bounties that are scattered around
Yours was the one I found


You’ve got an eye for a familiar face
But here I am still searching for someone with a likeness to you


There’s no better company
For searching high and low
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your latitude tonight

We’ll call on the satellites
Find treasure in the snow
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your longitude delighted


That there’s no better company I know
I’m at your latitude tonight


You’ve got an eye for a familiar face
But here I am still searching for someone with a likeness to you

And amongst all these bounties that are scattered around
Yours was the one I found
Track Name: Light Sparks
I never felt myself and always
Thought that I would always be alone
I was a stranger among the people that I knew
And I thought that I could never feel at home
But I felt something change

It always rains so hard on this town
I get weighed down by the water
But there’s something about these winter nights
They used to feel so much colder...

The ice on the ground reflects street lights
Light sparks in a million or more eyes
That glisten and glow
And in the darkness they grow
Like they know something I don’t
Track Name: Reasons To Stay
The water rises to the ceiling, seeping into every hole
I get the feeling I have nowhere left to go
This place was empty of one thing to tie me down
But now I can’t fucking move away

So for now I’ll just stay here and hold on to the hope
That you are enough
To keep me here, and help me stay afloat

You know not to get too close for comfort
’Cause I know all the ways to be alone
You know not to get too close for comfort
At any given minute I could turn and walk away

I said that I’d never get stuck here
But I keep finding reasons to stay

The water rises to the ceiling, seeping into every hole
I get the feeling I have nowhere left to go
All I can do is stay here, in the hope that I don’t drown
So I just close my eyes and wait...

For the cold to come and take me and never let go
But the need to leave is the only thing that I know
So I’ll just stay here for now.

You know not to get too close for comfort
’Cause I know all the ways to be alone
You know not to get too close for comfort
At any given minute I could leave
At any given minute I could leave forever

There’s things that I’ve found that I can’t figure out
There’s something holding on to me
There’s nights that I spent staring at the ceiling...

You gave me a reason to stay
Track Name: Might As Well Be Dead
There is something that I’ve needed to say…


There is something that I’ve needed to say to you
And I just can’t wait any longer, no
You say you’ve nothing to believe in
Well please just stop complaining

I was so sick of routine
Revisiting places I’ve been before
Well today is a day like any other


I thought "Is this is for me?
"Still stuck at seventeen
"Will I ever get back all the days in between?"


You parked your mind in a feeling
And never tried to get free
Your head and heart stopped working
But that won’t be me


Make a change
Try and see beyond all of your yesterdays
’Cause you’re tired of the feeling
And time isn’t healing
And you’ve only got yourself to blame


There’s something that I’ve needed to say
And I just can’t wait any longer, no
You can fuck all of your friends
But it’s yourself you should be blaming

I was so sick of routine
Revisiting places I’ve been before
I really want to believe
Tomorrow’s not just another day

When I wake up and think it’s over
And hide my head under the covers
And open my eyes and let the light in for the first time
And I’ll say...

I won’t let go or let, or let myself fall behind
I won’t listen to your words or let them prey on my mind

Negative outcomes stem from negative thoughts
And I will not let you break me down
Track Name: Like A Cancer Grows
TELL ME WHAT THE SECRET IS

Silence grows...
It ebbs and flows...
And finds its way into my mouth

(There’s a hush and it’s building slow
Takes my voice in a grip
And won’t let go)

It’s all consuming...
It will consume me...
If I cannot keep it out

(Won’t matter what I really know
When I can’t let it slip
Can’t shake this hold)

My world it shakes beneath me
And when I fall, I won’t fall lightly
My words they shake through my teeth
They don’t come easily...

Silence grows...
It ebbs and flows...
And pretty soon it will overtake me

(There’s a hush and it’s building slow
Takes my voice in a grip
And won’t let go)

It’s all consuming...
It will consume me...
If I cannot keep it out

(Won’t matter what I really know
When I can’t let it slip
Can’t shake this hold)

And my world it shakes beneath me
And when I fall I won’t fall lightly
My words they shake through my teeth
They don’t come easily...

So will I speak the truth or keep my image safe and hold my tongue?
The longer I wait, the chance, it slips away
Will I speak the truth or keep my image safe and hold my tongue?
I’ve always suppressed the words I need to say

And I don’t know what the trouble is...
I just keep holding on with my fingertips, never far from the outside.
And all I know is I don’t belong...
I just keep my eyes straight, keep my distance
And don’t say a word

I don’t know what the trouble is
I just keep holding back
No I don’t know what the trouble is
I’ve just been holding my breath for days

Will I speak the truth or keep my image safe and hold my tongue?
The longer I wait, the chance, it slips away
Will I speak the truth or keep my image safe and hold my tongue?
I’ve always suppressed the words I need to say
Will I speak the truth or keep my image safe and hold my tongue?
The longer I wait, the more I slip away ... away further from you
Track Name: Fight Or Flight
I lie alone while the city’s sleeping
Eyes wide open and a mind that feeds me
All the reasons why I’m still awake
And how tomorrow is just one more day

Turn up the music and stare at the ceiling
But nothing kills that sinking feeling
That my best plan is just to keep drinking
Because hope is just wishful thinking


The wettest July since the 1950s
I think the sky’s trying to tell me something
I’m better off inside

If I don’t see my friends, I won’t see my enemies
With defeatism and negativity
You fuckers sap all of my energy

Learning to choose between fight or flight
Sick of these walls so I won’t stay home tonight
It’s time for a change and some honesty


And while I wait, there’s just no chance I’ll ever sleep at night
So I can’t wait until it’s over


The way I’ve been living the past few years
It won’t be a shame if I never see myself again


The wettest July since the 1950s
I think the sky’s trying to tell me something
I’m better off inside

I’ve already spent far too long waiting for my time
So I won’t run and hide


And while I wait, there’s just no chance I’ll ever sleep at night
So I can’t wait until it’s over


I lie alone while the city is sleeping
Eyes wide open and a mind that feeds me
All the reasons why I’m still awake
And how tomorrow is just one more...

Turn up the music, stare at the ceiling
But nothing kills that sinking feeling
That my best plan is just to keep drinking
Because hope is just wishful thinking

WOAH-OH
