ben bulcock It's been such a long wait, but I didn't give up hope. And I'm not disappointed. Not one bit. I was obsessed by Shift​+​Ctrl​+​Esc all those years ago, with good reason. Reception is just as good if not better. Thanks guys. Sorry I'm gonna have to do The Heart Thing <3 Favorite track: Never Mine.

Never Mine 04:08
She's gone She's flown Left you right here in your empty home One chair, you own Sitting right here on your golden throne You got drunk alone, reaping all the woes from the seeds you've sewn Unplug your phone Set fire to the bridges of the ones you've known And all your friends just want to help you It's clear that no one's taking sides And you read them but you don't reply, just sitting here in all your pride I tried to stare into the light How brightly we would shine You said we were fine I wish I'd noticed at the time I wish I'd seen the signs You were never mine Low lows Tall highs You buy the ticket and you take the ride I see a thin disguise Guess you can't tell when a person lies You've got a new 'do and a new crew and you try to stay cool, but some needs arise Got some new rules Surprise Thought you'd be cool with some other guys You thought we had an understanding And I thought, one day, we'd say our vows What we wanted, fate would not allow and everything is over now I tried to stare into the light How brightly we would shine You said we were fine I wish I'd noticed at the time I wish I'd seen the signs You were never mine You thought we had an understanding I thought I'd get a second chance But you let me know that you just can't It's not that type of circumstance I tried to stare into the light How brightly we would shine You said we were fine I wish I'd noticed at the time I wish I'd seen the signs You were never mine

On Patrol 04:00
I can be a normal human being I can hide myself behind this screen We all hide our rusty razors I can let you find them later Jack has got a fire in his brain Something made its way into his vein Father intervened and got him help He'll have to fill the hole with something else Jack is finding Jesus Christ to save his soul but he'll just let you down I have got a hole to fill If I don't learn to swim then I will drown Jill can find the best things to attend She grew up having trouble making friends Now, she would buy cocaine for everyone She made her share of friends from buying fun Jill is everybody's favorite girl She makes a call It starts to snow I have got a hole to fill and I am on patrol to kill my woes I need to keep my needs at bay so I'm not led astray Hey Keep my needs at bay so I don't go insane Keep my needs at bay so I can feel okay I have reached a point without the need to preach or stress about my hell I have got a hole to fill and I am on patrol to kill myself

Five days until we do it all You're not convinced you can go through it all So very careful not to burden me Leaving me happy with my certainty And invitations go to all our friends And all your joy is all pretend Pick the location and we choose the date Reception band, the price per plate And, all this time, you're having second thoughts for separate lives and separate plots Too many issues that we can't resolve It's far too much You call it off I'm ready to throw away all of these things I've saved for you I'm ready to sacrifice something old, something loaned, something new Five months have passed and I'm a mess You're with someone better if I had to guess What mattered most is now a stupid thing And I still can't take off this stupid ring And though I felt like it was meant to be So positive; I couldn't see I'm shedding everything and I'm okay A brand new me for a brand new day I'm ready to throw away all of these things I've saved for you And I'm ready to sacrifice something old, something loaned, something new And the third time feels like the second time And the second time feels like the first time In five years, he'll buy you something wooden while my fears will keep me made of stone Maybe I'll throw out five things I should have kept, but couldn't Leave them lying on the grass outside our home And now I hardly can remember you I've built a life with someone new I'm shedding everything and I'm okay A brand new me for a brand new day I'm ready to throw away all of these things I've saved for you And I'm ready to sacrifice something old, something loaned, something new I'm ready to eliminate all of these things I've saved for you And I've only this offering of something old, something loaned, something new Something old, something loaned, something blue

If I was like you it would be freeing No need to be a better human being No moral compass would be required I'd do whatever my heart desired If I was like you, I wouldn't grow cuz this behavior's all I've ever known If I was like you If I were like you If I was like you it would delight you If I were like you it would excite you If I was like you I'd thirst for more An appetite that I could not ignore I'd eat your spirit Consume your mind I wouldn't leave a scrap of you behind If I was like you I would explore I'd find some fears you'd never known before If I were like you If I was like you If I were like you it would excite you If I were like you it would delight you Inside yourself Down below Inside yourself something grows We tried to help but, even so, you can't hide yourself cuz now we know Yes, now we finally see Inside your mind's a grim reality I'm sure no one would mind if you left yourself behind Inside yourself Down below Inside yourself something grows If I was like you it would delight you If I were like you it would excite you But I'm not like you No, I'm not like you Inside yourself Down below Inside yourself something grows We tried to help but, even so, you can't hide yourself cuz now we know Yes, now we all agree Inside your mind's a grim reality I'm sure no one would mind if you left yourself behind

Let's make a plan for what we're going to do today Let's start a brand, promoting it the easy way We'll place our ads to keep our user base engaged And you know that everybody knows that it's not that hard to grow Let's find a way to keep the conversations new We know the way to drive them through At least, I think we do Do the heart thing Do the like thing Do the star thing Get your base grown Do the friend thing Do the following I'm guessing that it makes you feel known We thought it would be easier Nobody will engage I thought that they'd all be needier I wanted to win it all, but everyone else is greedier And now you know what everybody knows That it's really hard to grow You panic Update your profile, posting pictures of your food and lifestyle Coming down with the shakes We need more clicks Just one more like Just one more fix We just posted something Something that was sure to trend But it did not contend What happened to all my friends? I guess I gotta do the heart thing Do the like thing Do the star thing Get your base grown Do the friend thing Do the following Nobody's gonna love you if you don't Do the star thing Do the like thing Do the heart thing Never be alone Do the following Do it if you wanna stay known Just one more like Just one more click Just one more like Just one more fix Just one more like Just one more click Just one more like Just one more fix Just one more like Just one more click Just one more like Just one more fix We just posted something Something that was sure to trend But it did not contend Are these people really friends? I guess I gotta do the heart thing Do the like thing Do the star thing Never be alone Do the friend thing Do the following Nobody's gonna love you if you don't, no Do the star thing Do the like thing Do the heart thing Get your base grown Do the following Do it if you want to stay known

Hey, you left a message again making sure that we're still friends But we both know what we did was very wrong So we pretend that last time was the end Things can happen when you get along And it just takes one slip, one break, to put us in the same bed that we desecrate And when the sun comes up and our stomachs ache I look into your eyes and I say that This has got to stop It's making me the worst I've ever been If we don't get caught, we'll get sick of one another then Then it's on to the next ones Hey, I left a message for you Having trouble getting through It's probably safer if we don't talk anymore But all our friends are the same There's parties every day And things can happen once we're through that door And it just takes one slip, one break to put us in the back room It's a piece of cake And when the lights come on and the room takes shape, you look into my eyes and you say that This has got to stop if we want to keep on being friends Cuz I'd rather not cut off all communication when we move on to the next ones This has got to stop Everyone despises you and me Left here to rot Only one another and our dreams Dreams of finding the next ones The next ones we won't see Hey

Tell Me 04:53
Tell me every prayer you're thinking about sending And all the deeds and actions you're intending I want to learn, there's no need to compel me So tell me everything And all your words, they go right through me I need to see from someone else's point of view And I'd like to think you knew me, though you could never know the true me At least I can know a part of you So tell me all of your conjectures and your theories Your thoughts on life and death and God appearing or deciding not to show So tell me cuz I'd really like to know And everything you say goes right into me I need to see from someone else's point of view And I'd like to think you knew me, though you could never know the true me At least I can know a part of you So tell me how we plan on sifting through this debris It all came tumbling down succeeding years of fury Succeeding years of fights So, please, tell me how can I make it right And when you speak, it cuts right through me and I can see from someone else's point of view And I'd like to think you knew me, though you could never know the true me At least I was once a part of you And the more you let me know And the more you let me see The more that you decide to show then the more that it can grow Protected in my heart and kept a part of me And our exchanges make us stronger A perfect match from someone else's point of view And I can't wait to know you longer And through this wonderous world we'll wander now that I'm a part of you So tell me anything and everything you're feeling (Tell Me) Anything and everything you're feeling (Tell Me)

Fantasy 04:29
It's the day of Get dressed Lace gloves White dress Come one, come all Can't you see she's the bell of the ball? So get up cuz it's the song that you paid for Get up and take your place on the dance floor We hope the choice you've made will pan out this time You dance until you scream Bright lit color schemes But nothing's shining through And nothing's what is seems You dance until you bleed Lost in your own dream Wake from this reverie From your fantasy Groom's side (Groom's side) Top dollar (Top dollar) Black tie (Black tie) White collar (White collar) Boutonniere (Boutonniere) White flower Can't you see that he's the man of the hour? So get up cuz it's the song that you paid for Get up and take your place on the dance floor We hope that everything will work out just fine You dance until you scream Bright lit color scheme But nothing's shining through And nothing's what is seems You dance until you bleed Lost in your own dream Wake from this reverie From your fantasy Faking smiles Walking down the aisle And all the while, you're both in denial When the evening's over and we go back home Sleeping side-by-side, but still alone You dance until you scream Bright lit color schemes But nothing's shining through And nothing's what is seems You dance until you bleed Lost in your own dream Wake from this reverie From your fantasy

I once was told to always say what was on my mind But then I grew old and I found that there are certain things best left behind When we were young all of our troubles came from words And now we're both done Nothing of importance will be heard The biggest thing we've overcome is what we said when we cared at all We found that it's easier to run than to fall Somewhere I heard that communication is the key But those were just words and I don't think that they apply to you or to me And now we've been together here for all these many years with nothing to discuss We've lost the best of us and our problems only seem to disappear If you want the proof, why are we both still here? The biggest thing we keep inside was what we did when we cared at all We found that it's easier to hide than to fall And we won't bother No, we won't bother Cuz everything that matters most, we hide away We keep it close The end of this is nowhere near that I see

Reception 04:49
You wanted fame, to make a name, have a career You've been away for many days, many years Out of place Self-effaced Self-condemned Couldn't grow Forced to go back home again So welcome back to your life Not a thing's been changed Everything's like before Everything's the same Your journey's done Prodigal son College grad Once again; alone Back at home with mom and dad So welcome back to your life Not a person's changed Everyone's like before Everybody's the same So welcome back to your life No one's moved away Every part is the same as it's ever been The ending's always where you begin Cuz everybody's pulling you back in So welcome back to your life Not a thing has changed Everything's like before Everything's the same So welcome back to your life No one's touched a thing Every part is the same as it's ever been
