Track Name: Heaven Sent
I try so hard to not get wrapped up in my negativity
It's not easy because everyone around me
Hates themselves, let life fill their heads with doubt
Sadness rolls in like the morning clouds

Wait up and tell me all the things that you have left behind
Slow down and think about that feeling and the best times of your life
Erase yourself scream out and make a sound
It's a sign of strength that you don't expect
It's the kind of help thats selfless and heaven sent

Where's your sense of direction
You're serving your sentence
You must learn to transition

Cause I tried so hard to not get wrapped up in my negativity
It's not easy because everyone around me
Hates themselves, let life fill their heads with doubt
Sadness rolls in like the morning clouds

Become isolated
Your thoughts are changing
You see yourself in a different way
Darkened eyes from lack of sleep
Your face sinking from constant lethargy
Impulses have taken control
Impulse is all we've ever known
Take a few more steps to walk outside
And look up to the light that left you blind
Track Name: Blur
These thoughts all overlap
A constant blur with no contrast
My life's a show that I get forced to watch from front to back
But I don't know what lies ahead
I can't look back those days are dead
I can't forget the past cause most of it was spent inside my head

What I want I can't remember
The things I left in last December
So hold your head up in hopes you don't destruct
Cause we feel like something's missing even though it's not good for us

I took a step outside my boundaries
With open eyes the world seemed clear to me
Familiar faces surrounding
Still the emptiness is killing me
A heavy head of expectations weighs us down
The distance stretched for miles now my legs have given out
I'm torn apart yet you still make me run just to hear my heart race

What I want I can't remember
The things I left in last December
So hold your head up in hopes you don't destruct
Cause we feel like something's missing even though it's not good for us

My life's being spent trying to understand
Why the idea of time pops up again and again
A race against something I can't even see
But this intangible thing ends up defining me

Like the quality isn't what I want it to be
So the pressure builds up and fills me with anger
Because every second my last day is getting close

What I want I can't remember
The things I left in last December
So hold your head up in hopes you don't destruct
Cause we feel like something's missing even though it's not good for us
Track Name: Easy Way Out
Tell a lie cause I know that I've been telling them for my whole life
Not surprised I've gone nowhere but I still walked out of sight
Take away the shame
I don't wanna know the pain of letting you go
Letting you down

Days go by so fast
I'm losing track of everything that matters most
You are the glass that shattered
I watched my hands bleed as I tried to
Put you back together
I'm sorry that you feel you're not the same
But that's okay, I don't recognize myself anyway

Lapses in my judgement
Missed steps on the street
You start to stumble
Your knees have grown weak

You're paper thin
Light as air
It's sinking in your own despair
Let it out
Learn to love
What you've become
Track Name: What You Really Meant
Stitching at the seams are frayed
You come apart in different ways
Was it too much to contemplate
That soon you'll have to give up the charade
Give up the charade
Miscommunications left me hanging swinging side to side
It's hard for you to recognize what's really apparent
The answer's right there but you just kept on staring
You just kept on staring

You always choose to be a victim of society
What will it take for us to see eye to eye
So sit back and watch the show
Cringing as it all unfolds
You'll take some time to realize
The difference from what's yours
The difference from what's yours and mine

Miscommunications left me hanging swinging side to side
It's hard for you to recognize
That the stakes have been raised
This isn't just a game
So why can't we all cooperate


Without a shadow of doubt
You'll swallow the words that come from your mouth
You know it's absurd
But I'll still give you a chance
In hopes I might someday understand
What you really meant
