We like to refer to this song as a "cover of a song that hasn't been released yet". This was written by Tim for his currently unnamed solo project, and will likely be seeing a release under that moniker soon. We haven't actually heard his solo version, but he assures us it's quite different. This is our interpretation of it, and isn't likely to see a release on any of the proper Dark Third albums or EPs, so putting it on the B side here was only logical.


Tell me please
How to keep
Your heart from tearing to
A thousand pieces
Taking you to sleep

I wore your clothes last night
While you talked to me
It seemed like we could so easily be

Then you [redacted]
What you thought of me
And I lost my head completely

Our bear had lost its teeth
And I was mute
But still you stood there stubbornly

Then I [redacted]
Could I please just leave?
And if looks could kill, I'd be free

Tell me I'm wrong but I thought you were right up my street
You were my other sister so long it took me months to find my cold feet

Tell me please how to keep you at arm's reach
Tell me please how to leave and still be happy

I thought you'd more to say
But you stopped hating me
I guess that was the point
Was it everything?

Could you just forgive?
Cause you've long forgot
How to let us live
It's not a lot

Tell me please how to be a memory


Tell me please how to be convincingly easy
