MISSTEPS Tired of picking up the pieces in someone else's life, take me outside and show me a good time Faking the direct line to some other self, till you don't know any better like a burn that's just far too late Missteps don't get ahead of yourself Missteps I'd listen but you're boring Let me out from under it push your hair back with a smile Everyone's breathing but you forgot, everyone's breathing but you forgot No more catching up to do you started way too late, lightheaded and impossible the gap is just far to great Missteps don't get ahead of yourself Missteps I'd listen but you're boring

ALLIES Full sworn support give me your hand It'll be alright soothing charity Come stand by my side Let's be allies Come stand buy my side Let's be allies Swimming along like no-one ever knew Obscured in the greeny blue My thorny stage needs cushioning My thorny stage needs cushioning Demure and kind funny and blind (catching yourself softening me) Demure and kind funny and blind (catching myself softening you) Stunning in your conviction blind to all my imperfection Steadfast all feeling the other mirroring tics catching yourself Just like a sponge you soak it dry just like a sponge let's be allies Demure and kind funny and blind (catching yourself softening me) Demure and kind funny and blind (catching myself softening you) Stunning in your conviction blind to all my imperfection

HOPE IN A COMA You bring out the best you bring out the worst and that's why I need you I want you it hurts We'll keep until it's warm we'll keep until it's ready we'll keep until our pretend illusion's unsteady You gotta burst it you gotta burst it watch where it spills x2 (Hope in a coma x2) Glorious unbound a likely middle distance reached and unwound I drifted off for for a minute Compelled to unlearn and relearn in your image I buried my feeling I got on with living You gotta burst it you gotta burst it watch where it spills x4 (Hope in a coma x4)

ALL IN Far greater than love's undivided attention too massive too infinite to merit a mention take it from me we're all loyal by blood All in all good x2 All there for you now everything we have we're all in it now Hard as it was in the past too ordinary to be tragic we're listening on speed-dial conditions attached no limit or burden or hole in the sky could shift our devotion and you wonder why All in all good x4 All there for you now everything we have we're all in it now x4

WE DON'T STAND A CHANCE I'm learning you're never too old dip your toes in the water - it's good if it's cold The shock is the symptom stinging sensation next time you feel it learn to embrace it Why can't I unlearn what I already know We don't stand a chance we don't have a hope x2 (We don't stand a chance we don't have a hope we don't stand a chance) I'm learning it takes a little time some habits are harder to form I don't obsess just can't forget some traits they just demand regret Why can't I unlearn what I already know We don't stand a chance we don't have a hope x4 (We don't stand a chance we don't have a hope we don't stand a chance)
