It was starting to go wrong I saw you can’t be alone So I bought some flowers without you “The realtor’s showing the house, Do you need help moving things out?” I'd like to be there just so you could choose You said I made you feel alone I thought something real was shown I found an apartment near by So maybe we could still try I don’t deserve it but I caught a glimpse And it's my fault because I ruined this There was never another And since the time that you asked me "Do the dead hate the living?" It was supposed to be a safe place No matter what they should say It's sad that she's still getting followed around I looked into your heart Said you were scared to have kids because the place you grew up in She said "you don't understand; some things don't work out as planned." This place was sacred, now we'll bury it. So is it too much for me to ask? But I miss those days when you gave back And I thank god that I'm still alive..

Is it impossible to pretend you’re not alone? Or is it harder because I don’t try? Beside you, I’ve reduced to An amputee, dead, always here but never again I am at rest now trying desperately and still hoping to fit in Bury me in earth’s hands The birds told me something that I don’t understand Nothing has changed, we’re still on track This world gave me nothing, so I’ll give nothing back Is it a problem to abstain from relief for so long? You said I made you feel sick so I swallowed Inside you, I felt used too. And if you see Dan tell him that I’m looking for him He is a ghost now trying desperately and is longing to fit in. Bury me in earth’s hands The birds told me something that I don’t understand God please show me anything, ‘cause I’m your punching bag This world gave me nothing, so I’ll give nothing back

My eyes were on you before, there was no “anyone else “ I think that someone might have disappointed your heart in your formative years And I was only trying, calmly, to explain it to you I swear you died when I was 16 but now you're right here Holding me up, yeah you keep holding me then running away I searched the whole world trying to find you, I wasted all my time to remind you That I was making it up, control is under us and floating away How many minutes underwater do you think it would take? I'd like to go back before we ever had a chance You opened your heart wide but I was standing there, stupid And I was using under pretext of illusion to prove That I could use the heating in this house to make a fire out of you.

A Delight in your bed And to think that I would leave you here I'll think back to all the moments in those places you won't go near Too young we’re amateurs Too stupid to know we were Too drunk to know I was still alive Too young we’re amateurs Too stupid to know we were Too young to know we were terrified so I risked you out the back door Do you still think it's immature? Would you still stay with/fuck the thought of her Would you still stay always and forever tonight? So let me take you out tonight.

I don't want you It’s no fair that I can't bring you If I could go across I'd keep it inside This was the last lie You swore this was the last time But the first half was so hard… So I'll melt again I had a feeling I'd felt again I had this reason to know that I'd slowly choose to walk away again I'm mad as hell. I'm standing at your back door and I'm waiting for you to come out What do you need, for me to get clean? And for the cuts on all your fingers to melt? Yeah you'll get them back. I don’t get you “How could they fucking like you?” You talk about the safety of being alone I wish that you’d talk more about coming home again Yeah, we’ll get them back
6.
Underneath the saw You don't have to make love so hard This used to be a sacred place for us You could lose them Oh but I'd never know that I threw it all away I've had enough cocaine Here at the fire field But at The Lakewood Mausoleum You can know them So what’s the point in all this? There isn’t point in us living again. How lucky I was to have had something that made saying goodbye so quick I don’t know why you think hell is so far She used to whisper ancient things to us I couldn’t control myself, she knew I was afraid She asked me “do you know them?” I’d like to know it all. I guess I’ll see you when I see you all down there. If you look closely you can see them all. Do you think that you deserve it? Down at The Lakewood Mausoleum…

about

Funeral Advantage have been mostly hermetic since the release of 'Body Is Dead', the band’s 2015 debut album. With the exception of some sporadic touring through the US and Canada, Tyler Kershaw (Funeral Advantage’s sole member) has kept to himself, writing and recording what would be the next chapter of Funeral Advantage – a new EP entitled ‘Please Help Me’.

If 'Body Is Dead' came from a place of hope, 'Please Help Me' comes from a place of desolation and confusion. Written during the disintegration of a long term relationship, the record works through the existential feelings of hopelessness and meaninglessness that followed.

While the lyrical content is much darker on this release, musically ’Please Help Me’ picks up where ‘Body Is Dead’ left off – irresistibly bright, and melodic dream-pop. ‘Please Help Me’ will be released on February 24th on limited edition vinyl and cassette tape, as well as digitally.
