Fanatic 03:45
I see you hiding behind that facade of cover up that you mask on and the way you dot the I's Colour bleeds on a crowded collage. Traits of everyone tacked on. This is where I draw the line. You surround yourself with a world you can gel and I just orbit around... Fanatic, you've gotta have it. Never enough to please We've had it with all your old habits and strenuous activities. Fanatic, you always want more. Fanatic, don't say that you weren't warned. So you've assembled a fine entourage to pick you up off the sidewalk. That let me know you were never mine. Knock me over, discard, I'm a pawn. You think I'll still leave the porch light on. Now I know you've lost your mind. You're surrounded now with a world you can gel and I just orbit around...
Affinity 03:55
Telepathically communicating. Speechless and eating our words. A never expected infectious affair. The cheating increases our worth. Open the atlas and flip to a page. Commute across the map, follow through to the grave. You give me the shakes, I'm all over the place in the best way. We get away with everything. We never let anyone tell us we're wrong. We get away with everything. They've got nothing on us. Telepathically communicating. Believe me I am reading your thoughts. We're ink on the paper connecting the dots. Indebted to these shapes that we've drawn.
I'm not feeling well, haven't been myself. My body is acting up, it's had enough. Thrown in the towel The reality is not hard to see. My memories are fading fast, no bouncing back, I'm deteriorating. --Tonight, I don't think I'm going to wake up. We've run out of time, out of years, out of luck. Believe in all honesty and truth I'll keep a good eye on you Now I limp around but I won't drag this out. My suffering won't subside, I fought the fight So as you lay me down just say goodnight because it's not goodbye. In an afterlife we'll reunite in a constellation lightyears high. We haunt our favourite memories as ghosts, so I'm aware of what awaits. Look for subtle differences around your home, I'll stay at your side if I have a say. Bedroom windows open, curtains blow, whispers in the wind. My pictures position, the photo frames will float. So burn or bury my remains, the ever present will never fade. I will never go away.
Totality 03:45
You opened up a world to me, pulled me through the screen And showed me there was more to see than what I had perceived. Like tapestry, I've made you a map of me. A design to keep you blind, to mislead your way. You don't want to see my true colours. I'll make you sorry you met me. --I'm not leaving but I'm not afraid to go. My one weakness is I'm out of control. This is our phenomenon. i'll make you love me until I'm dust. Brought up as products of things we never had. I'm a plague of pessimism, I'm positive of that. We're the totality of two personalities. I'm not breathing half the time. I'm not sleeping half the nights I'm not even half alive.
Make Up 03:43
I don't want to know you so I'm starting over. Cut myself from the loop. We pushed each other so far, we pulled apart. Now this is somebody new. It was swept under rug then it crawled up the table where I could see. It's all adding up now it's all over angel. Woke from your dream. I know that you're hoping to make it up to me, But I'm done, I can't come home, won't come home unless you find a way to trick me. I know that you hope you can make it up to me. I'll cope with what I've done as I'm fighting the war that comes after war. Oh you think you're clever. well I put it together. I'm not what you're about. I've taken measures, I'll spend forever staking it out to see who pulls in and walks up to the house. Now all your stories make sense (They never made sense) After all they were never real events. It all added up into one fucking fable, that will never change i really loved you so long ago..

"Listen Up Kid create elaborately layered melodies and poetic lyrics, both of which embody the essence alternative rock. In fact, they blow the genre defining elements out of the water by tossing in the odd splash of metal, pop, electronic influences. The result is something that you have never heard before.“
