Total plays on over the last 6 months
    Some nights I thirst for real blood,
    for real knives, for real cries.
    And then the flash of steel from real guns
    in real life really fills my mind.
    I really miss what really did exist
    For Real  -  963,893 plays
    Packed and all eyes turned in, no one to see on the quay
    No one waving for me just the shoreline receding
    Ticket in my hand, thinking wish I didn't hand it in
    'Cause who said sailing is fine?
    Leaving behind all the faces that I might replace
    Lost Coastlines  -  871,159 plays
  3. Black Sheep Boy  -  603,991 plays
    I'm coming into your town. Night is falling to the ground,
    but I can still see where you loved yourself
    before he tore it all down. April 12th,
    with nobody else around; you were outside the house (where's your mother?)
    When he put you in the car, when he took you down the road.

    What gives this mess some grace unless it's kicks, man
    Unless it's fictions, unless it's sweat or it's songs?
    What hits against this chest unless it's a sick man's hand
    From some midlevel band? He's been driving too long
    On a dark windless night, with the stereo on
