about

A striped carnation means "No." It is a symbol of refusal, and says, "I'm sorry I can't be with you, but I wish I could."

Track Name: Sleep
I can't sleep
I'm tired of dreaming of a hoax
I break my bones
but I don't feel anything at all


Love's not real
everyone knows it's just a dream
that you have
where it all comes out beautiful
A state of mind
where all you wanna do is sleep
to dream of who
will always be there for you
Track Name: Disguised Affection
call me sanguine but I'm waiting for me to fall in love with you to fall in love with me
Take the time to see
where I stand in life
I'm muddled in my words, they never sound proper


but I've heard it a thousand times before
and I feel like it's the same
it keeps me awake
it won't change

I'm trying to make you see, how secretly
I want to be in bed with you our legs intwined in two
my watch is broken now from the time I spent thinking, thinking of you here thinking of this


Cause I've heard it a thousand times before
and I feel it's the same
it keeps me awake
it won't change
Cause I've heard it a thousand times before
and the feeling is the same
it keeps me awake it won't change
oh no it won't
oh no it won't
Oh no it won't
it won't change
Track Name: Self Regard
I'm taking the train downtown
I'm trying to make you see
that really life's only fun to
whomever may be
hearing the right sounds
I'm trying to make you feel
the way you make me feel all the time


I'm walking the whole way down
finally to see
yourself through my mind
it's not easy to be
true to your whole self but
I'm trying to make you feel
the way you make me feel all the time
Track Name: Drive
When does it stop
just being alone
How do you cope
when no ones there for you

I ask myself
this cause no one seems
to understand
the way to live in life


When do you know
that it's just a phase
like a river
you have to pass right through
that flows inside
through different
worlds
someday you'll find
yourself alone at sea


well can't you see
I'm not like the rest
it's best be withdrawn
so no one gets hurt
well can't you see
I'm not at my best
I'm feeling forlorn
I'm all on my own
Track Name: Realise
I don't believe in love at first sight
the words sound so cruel
when said out loud
call me what you want
but you know it's true
it's just what I, I realised

This world is filled with
goodbyes and departures
"I've gone out,
I've gone now..."
You hear affairs of the heart
but it's not,
it's not real
there's no one

I'd rather not be
someone who can't sleep
the caffeine kicks in
way too late
so make sure that I'm
not going insane
from all the time I,
I spend awake

This world is filled with
goodbyes and departures
"I've gone out,
I've gone now..."
You hear affairs of the valiant
but it's not,
it's not real
there's no one
