I waited for days
no reply
yeah I waited for days
no reply
I phrased it seven different ways
no reply
I waited four fucking days
no reply
no reply

and I knew in the beginning you were special
and when I met you for a second so was I
so was I
and now I see you on the backs of my eyes
and I can't stand another second going by
with no reply

I tried you more than I should
more than was good for my pride
and I found myself drifting off
I though that we could slip away if we tried
but now there's just tangled wires between us
and I can't reach you from where I lie
no reply
now there's just static between us
and I can't reach you from where I lie
no reply
I thought that you were made of something different
I thought that you could make it right but you just lied
you just lied
and now I'm clawing at the backs of my eyes
and I'm hoping that the blood can wash you from my life
as I cry

I waited for days.
Track Name: Dry Ground
Art was once everything to me
hand in hand with my integrity
plucking strings and pushing buttons
every feeling as a rush of exposition

but when the well runs dry
and your heart cracks open
like a stone in the sun
there’s still a mouth to feed

love was once everything I knew
the confirmation came from you
I was pumping blood like oil
from new and fertile soil
and the flowers gave us substance as they grew

but when the heart beats cold
and the earth grows dry
cracks open in the sun
there’s still a mouth to feed

the instrument in my chest feels blunt and honest
there’s a question in my mind that will not be resolved
the two will fight for ever, through each of my endeavours
until my breath is gone and my heartbeat is cold
there’s a banknote in the sky
so bright I’ll leave it all behind
now I’m gloriously blind
to my heart, my soul and my mind

but there’s still a mouth to feed
