Lyrics

Whale Bone

Written By: Ben Wilson

Oh Whale Bone,
Here you Are Washed up on the shore
You used To be a part
Of something great Now you Aren’t

Go Whale bone,
Don’t sit here on your own
I won’t tell anyone
You been here now you’re gone.

Captain J.R.

Written By: Ben Wilson

As the boat pulled away, past the ships in the port,
I felt cool relief, the seabreeze on my forehead.
The Sun fell away over Indian waters
I felt I'd escaped
I felt nothing could stop us now.

The wind caught the sails, I felt her lunge forward
Like a dog on a leash, dragging the owner,
With eager intent and careless endeavor,
We’d finally escaped
I felt nothing could stop us now.

And if a storm was to form, the likes you’ve never seen
Swallowed us whole, into the murky depths below
I go to my grave, without any pain
We’d finally escaped
I felt nothing could stop us now
I felt nothing, I feel nothing.

Superhero

Written By: Ben Wilson

I know you wanted me to be a better me, but don’t you know im trying, you got to know im trying,
I know you can’t believe, that i'm so at ease, with everything they told me when i was young, with all my favourite stories from when i was young

So i.... am gunna jump down off this wall and own tomorrow, cause i can fly, no need to fear the fall I'm a super hero, i wear a cape i hear the call of constant sorrow, I can escape to anywhere I wanna go.

I know you’re mocking me, you’re really wanting me, to crash into the pavement head first, and smashing all the way like i done before,
But I know its jealousy, its so obviously, you wanted to believe but you didn’t have the faith, for letting go your fears you're a cat in a cage.

So i.... am gunna jump down off this wall and own tomorrow, cause i can fly, no need to fear the fall I'm a super hero, i wear a cape i hear the call of constant sorrow, I can escape to anywhere I wanna go.

Worn Out

Written By: Ben Wilson

Worn out, driving these things is gunna kill me one day,
I tore out every last page in the wedding album,
Its pouring down, I'm outside in a paper cape,
but they warned me loud and clear but I went and did it anyway
Yeah I went and did it anyway.

Burned out, hiding these things gunna bury me one day,
I pulled out my heart cause I didn't use it anyway,
I'm crawling down, the side of a mountain thats falling away,
but they warned me loud and clear but I went and did it anyway.
So I went and did it anyway

I wish that I could turn it off,
take that money and tear it up
casue all my firends are in the dirt,
family's gone but left the hurt
If I had heed the words they said, they warned me loud and clear but I knew best,
So I went and did it anyway.

Pokerface

Written By: Ben Wilson

All the other players in this game all laid their cards down,
So you must soon know im a one trick pony in a one horse town,
Weathered by your love, but sheltered just the same, just pick em up, no need to shuffle, deal them out again.

All the other players in this game already left town,
And anyone else still left sitting here aint got long left now
I’m teathered by a thread to the table, but i can’t break out.
Just get on up, go cash your chips in, pretty sure I’m a few chips down.

But you look like a prisoner who’s found out he is holding the gun,
yeah you look like a sinner who’s somehow showered in God's love.
