Track Name: Person
Hold yourself
Cause' I'm ready to go
It's just that I'm so tired
When I'm trying not to fall apart,
I'm trying not to fall apart

Here lies my mind
I'm just one person
Do I dare touch you?
When theres nothing else I can do

And there goes, your worth...
you fell in the back seat of my mind
And don't go, too far
You know I'd still try to make it work

There's nothing left for me

I'll wait for it
to erase all the pain
I came too way too late
to change a thing, anything
Do I dare ask you?
what your mind is telling you?
I know the plunge is great
but just know it's never, ever too late

And there goes, your worth...
you fell in the back seat of my mind
And don't go, too far
You know I'd still try to make it work
x2

You know I'll be whatever you want me to be
You know I'll be whatever you want me to be
x4
Track Name: Lights
there's something kept in secret,
something near and dear and close to me
a ray of light that no one sees

we watch so very closely
the tango between whats real and true
the constant struggle of what your mind can't do

but you can't stop
me from falling in
further into sleep
you can
stand and watch all
all you want but
nothing can save me

stay close to my side
I promise you can hide as long as you
feel safe and know what I can face
It reels and shines on the forefronts
of my mind, carrying itself so lightly
but I just wait and face the fate

that you can't stop
me from falling in
further into sleep
you can
stand and watch all
all you want but
nothing can save me

you, you can't stop
me from falling further
further into sleep
you can
stand and watch all
all you want but
nothing can save me
Track Name: Sounds
let me drown all sound
so I can focus on the walls
I'd rather be out there
But your gaze is way too strong

But it's all in my head
when I want to rip off my skin
Forgive the lovers when I
Can't even tell one from another

I'm inside my own thoughts
and they're already so washed
"You're not like the others," she used to say,
"Why don't we pretend anyway?"

But it's all in my head
when I want to rip off my skin
Forgive the lovers when I
Can't even tell one from another

Don't you ever forget
how you pressed on my skin
how good it felt to live
without the pressure of what's within
was it all just a dream?
something nothing could ever be
broken, shattered lies
you know what happened that night

Don't you ever forget
how you pressed on my skin
how good it felt to live
without the pressure of what's within
was it all just a dream?
something nothing could ever be
broken, shattered lies
you know what happened that night
Track Name: Bitter
spit up that bitter taste
ou're carrying all of yesterday
go rest that head on a frozen sheet
it's always brighter in your dreams

but you're so hard on yourself
when I try to steer you clear
go ahead say it won't matter
but I know in the morning you'll feel stronger

watch your head as you crawl through
I don't know what I would ever do
If I'd lose you to a dark ghost
sit here I promise I'll never let you go

but you're so hard on yourself
when I try to steer you clear
go ahead say it won't matter
but I know in the morning you'll feel stronger

you there. . .
watching me
watching me
watching you
watching me
you there. . .
watching me

but you're so hard on yourself
when I try to steer you clear
go ahead say it won't matter
but I know in the morning you'll feel stronger
Track Name: Baby
baby I'd like for you to see past this dark night
baby their shouts are louder than your cries,
keep holding on just as tight
you're worth more than their hate and lies
just hold close and stick by my side

forever seems so long
but tomorrow is not gone
you can feel it so strong
when you don't belong

what you feel deep inside
you don't ever have to hide
keep your chin up real high
you can make it through the night

your secrets safe with me
i'll keep it in my own secret place
the love you feel is no doubt a shade
of all the colors that reign
don't lose yourself in the chaos
of a world that only sees grey

forever seems so long
but tomorrow is not gone
you can feel it so strong
when you don't belong

what you feel deep inside
you don't ever have to hide
keep your chin up real high
you can make it through the night

forever seems so long
but tomorrow is not gone
you can feel it so strong
when you don't belong

what you feel deep inside
you don't ever have to hide
keep your chin up real high
you can make it through the night

there's nothing out here for me anyways

fall, end, take away

there's nothing out here for me

fall and take the blame

there's nothing out here for me anyways
