Track Name: Bateman
Where did all my old friends go?
They all vanished long ago
Prematurely burnt out
From overwhelming self doubt

Cos they think they're better
Cos they think they're everything

Even tall towers can fall
But they learn nothing at all
Maybe someday they will see
What a mess they came to be

Cos they think they're better
Cos they think they're everything
Track Name: Wishing For Ferris, More Like Cameron
When you’ve had too much,
just take my hand and I’ll walk you home.
I don't live near your place but
I’d get home late just for you.

You’re checking out guys who
can’t even remember your name
and I know I’m not perfect but
it seems like such a shame.

I wish I was what you wanted
Track Name: Midnight Shop Run
I promised myself
not to get too worked up over
a girl who I know
could never like me back

so here I go again
I'm just wasting my breath
cos I'm dying to tell you how
much you mean to me

and I insult you like
other stupid boys do to
the girls they like
it’s cos i like you

so here I go again
I'm just wasting my breath
cos I'm dying to tell you how
much you mean to me.

and on every walk home, I am wanting to know, “can I come with you inside or do you want come back to mine?” Cos nothing needs to happen, we could just lay side by side, just two lonely hearts wanting different things tonight
Track Name: That Halloween
Sometimes I think
Of what could of happened
If I'd stayed with you
After that night

This is not me

In the practice room
Taking in the corner
Things are moving fast
aren't we still kids?

This is not me

And you with a girl half your age
And you with all your pent up rage
And you who used to play so safe
And you we used to be good friends

Now I've got nothing against it
We've just gone separate ways
