clintorus The sax tone is to die for. Production quality is excellent. Addison's voice is amazing. Great listen end to end. I will keep coming back to this record.

Track Name: Fighting The Times
Here in my little town
It's burning down, it's burning down.
Here in my little nest
I shut out the rest
cos it's such a bloody mess.

We're all lost in the miracle
Cos everyones so cynical
And that's just the way it is
Yeah that's just the way it is.
A little positivity never hurt anyone but me
And maybe thats where I've gone wrong

We're always fighting the times
Cos the times always fighting us
Cos we are the women
(We are the women and we'll keep on singin')

We know it's all getting better
Yeah changes they come like the weather
But it couldn't get much worse
And that is our curse.

I'm fighting my way through the prickles
Tearing through my skin it tickles
And baby I'm stuck in a pickle.

We're always fighting the times
Cos the times always fighting us
Cos we are the women
(We are the women and we'll keep on singin')
Track Name: Sugar
I'm hiding out cos I need time, time to feel
As I pass each hour, the flavours sour and the cut wont heal
'Cos home is where the heart is, and family's where your past is
and you are where my future meets my present and I know
I'm running out of options as the candy promise fades
and whets the blade.

So I'll try and I'll try and I'll try and I'll try and I'll try myself to sleep
Yeah I'll try and I'll try and I'll try and I'll try but I'm running out of sheep

Sugar Sugar

And I don't need anyone to say they're sorry
and I don't need you to explain
And I don't want you to be different
But I don't want to run away this time

I'm losing my will. This bitter pill. Can't get my fill.
It gives me a rush, so sweet the touch. I need too much.

So I'm wasting yeah I'm wasting oh I'm wasting all my time
Cos we're never gonna get it, Yeah I've learned that much through time

Sugar Sugar

And I don't need anyone to say they're sorry
and I don't need you to explain
And I don't want to be difficult
But I need you to go.
Track Name: Shame
You deserve so much better
I know that's a cliche
Now I've got a boat ticket
I'll let the tide take me away.
But if i could change my reflection
Who would I see in the mirror?
Maybe change direction,
Go back home don't give up

Cos everybody's hiding from the future
And everybody's hoping that there's something better

Now I'm on my knees to pray
Cos something's got to change
And while we're all looking for somebody other to blame
I feel shame shame shame.

(Tell mey how you feel, cos all I feel is pain
Tell me how you feel cos all I feel is shame)

I'm looking pasty
Cos I've been getting so wasted
We we're so happy
Now it's just misery
So I'll dim the lights and I'll go outside
and I'll drown myself until tomorrow
Until tomorrow

Cos everybody's hiding from the future
And everybody's hoping that there's something better

Now I'm on my knees to pray
Cos something's got to change
And while we're all looking for somebody other to blame
I feel shame shame shame.

(Tell mey how you feel, cos all I feel is pain
Tell me how you feel cos all I feel is shame)

I feel shame shame shame.
Track Name: Always Wanting More
Take me with you on the rise
Taste the disappointment in your eyes
Leave me behind you when you fall
Did you really think you could have it all?

Always wanting more
Someones keeping score

If you had the courage to just wait
Muster the courage to step through that gate
Follow the tapestry unwind
Cold blood, warm hearts and time time time

Always wanting more
Someones keeping score
Track Name: Critical

Track Name: Staying Home
I'm ready to sell my soul
to take this pain away
I'm drowning in this hole
I'm staying home today
I medicate myself
cos the drugs don't get in deep
Pick something off the shelf
and drink myself to sleep
Oh
Will I ever be the same again?

I'm in a human cell
behind a cheerful mask
I'm crumbling like a shell
I'm hoping you don't ask
I used to have it all
I used to be so free
now I just live
through old memories
Oh
Will I ever be the same?
Oh
Will I ever be the same again?

Oh
Will I ever be the same?
Oh
Will I ever be the same again?

I'm ready to sell my soul
to take this pain away
I'm drowning in this hole
I'm staying home today
Track Name: Potential
Theres a new sensation in my bones.
I can't feel my fingers or my toes.
I've got to realise my potential
Realise my potential
I lost my spirit but i'm searching hard and long.
I got some pills just incase i got it wrong.
I've gotta realise my potential
I've been trying but it makes no sense at all to me

Hey ok I needed that
cos we fucked it up together and it aint that bad
Hey ok I need a break cos
the pressure is excessive and I'm falling apart

This time is mine to waste
This time is mine to waste

Who even am I now
and who the hell are you?
who even cares what i say or do?
I've got to realise my potential
Realise my potential
i got a theory that I'm starting to obey
I didn't choose all this and I'm not gonna pay
I've got to realise my potential
I've been trying but it makes no sense at all to me

Hey ok I needed that
cos we fucked it up together and it aint that bad
Hey ok I need a break cos
the pressure is excessive and I'm falling apart

This time is mine to waste
This time is mine to waste
Hey ok I needed that
cos we fucked it up together and it aint that bad
Hey ok I need a break cos
the pressure is excessive and I'm falling apart

This time is mine to waste
This time is mine to waste
This time is mine to waste
This time is mine to waste
mine mine mine to waste
mine mine mine to waste
mine mine mine to waste
mine mine mine to waste
etc
Track Name: Dopamine
Everyone knows that I've been so low on dopamine
It doesn't take much to see I depend on amphetamines
Now weird shit is happening every night in my dreams
I'm stuck in my mind and I just wanna break free
But I don't want to make a scene

Oh no I think i'm losing my grip on reality
I'm so confused I'm losing my sense of personality

It's hard to admit that I've been so scared of everything
I cant go out and I can't stay in its killing me
Now I'm losing sleep about losing all my dignity
I'm stuck in my mind and I just want to break free

But I don't want to make a scene
Oh no I think i'm losing my grip on reality
I'm so confused I'm losing my sense of personality
Track Name: Too Late
You're a little too late
Did you think I would wait
until you left her
Now I've felt love
and I've felt heart ache
and I'm a little jaded
But I'm too tired
and I'm too cold
and I've been torn
and I'm too old
to play your game again
to play your game again
I would have loved you forever
I would have loved you like she never ever could
I would have loved you like a teenager
Like a dog loves his owner, only more
And I remember that look in your eye
and all the weeks that I cried
almost like someone had died
Well maybe it was me a little
maybe it was you so small
baby it was us for sure
