Euphoria 02:42
When I'm on an upswing I wonder if I'll fall back down It's all become very cyclical this days But when I'm on a downswing I wonder how I'll get back up I'm getting really good at Wasting my own time Feeling like a background In a world of canvases And all you can see Is what you want me to be Waking up can feel like Being trapped inside a dream I'm still wide awake When my eyes are growing heavy But I cannot sleep And I cannot think And I cannot breathe And I cannot speak With clarity Oh euphoria Come back to me Come back to me Oh euphoria Will you visit me In my dreams

Hurricane 03:14
Don’t you worry darlin I know things are looking bleak I promise this is temporary It’s always hard to land right on your feet I can feel the gravity too It ripples through me like an ocean But right now I’m too weak to fight the riptides We’re all going down on this ship it seems You’ve got the future at your fingertips But you can’t seem to grasp it yet Every now and then it’ll come back around Give you a taste of what you’re missing A laborious journey A game of survival But right now I’ll sink my teeth into opportunity Waiting for the day I wake up with the world again But I’m far too valuable To be a lost treasure in the sea I will claw my way out if I have to I’ll be sure to do it mercilessly We are whirlpools of potential So don’t get caught up in the current Just you wait ‘til I grow stronger I’ll be a hurricane
3.
Suspension 04:18
A white knuckled drive on the way home Suspended in time on the road Slippin in the lanes as im fighting through the rain And now i am terrified of telephone poles And I’ll race the trains when the sky clears up So the parallel brings time to a full stop It’s a second of bliss not knowing if I am going forwards or backwards This passage of time makes me a traveler And my hollow body serves as a vessel So ill scream loud and hope that it echos Finding comfort when all the sound cuts out under tunnels And I’ll race the trains when the sky clears up So the parallel brings time to a full stop It’s a second of bliss not knowing if I am going forwards or backwards
4.
You know I’d rip my heart out if it meant you’d be happy Sew it right on my sleeve and wear it like a Scarlet letter You’ll indulge in me, when I pour into you And when you’ve been quenched you’ll debate if I’m half full or empty I guess it depends on your stance Do you ever give back? Do you take what you want? Were you the only one to benefit? Well I can’t keep up I’m running out of energy I’m my own power supply But I’m not a generator It’s pretty clear that I can never say “no” I wish I could let down gently and let it all dissipate The leeches seek out those convenient to them Biting the hand that feeds and hoping they’ll get more in return I think im I’m selling myself short And it’s the ultimate sacrifice And there is no reward Except for when you tell me that I’m “nice” You call it symbiotic But I call it toxic Yet the cycle repeats Cuz its my inner nature to please And I’m so tired of picking up the pieces of others While they’re taking parts of me
5.
Skin 02:55
Sweet compulsion, without an explanation A mindless effort, devoid of consequences The internal ticking is always counting down Until the next time the machines wind up again There’s a voice that whispers in my ear And its disguised as what I look like in the mirror It’s barking orders and I function recklessly Until I step back and break out of the trance again Isolation, thinking there is something wrong One of a kind that makes me feel all alone You name the beast so you can learn to control it I know it takes time but at least I’m acquainted And I’m learning this will always be a part of me But I’m hoping for a day I’ll be able to break free And I’m digging at something that can never satisfy me But I’m scarred because I am my own target
6.
Center yourself and keep your composure Hold your head up high, it’ll soon be over There are mischief machines in my troubled head Weaving my thoughts into spiderwebs Shadows grow long Extending their arms Turn back now Don’t trust their charm Why are you worried how you’re perceived You’re everything you need to be
7.
Hum 03:39
Just let me roll around in someone else’s eyes I want some new perspectives All of this time I’ve been wandering blind And I’ve been aching to break the redundancies Cuz time does not slow down I could be dreaming but I’m losing sleep All of the places that I grew up in Are filled with vacancies I’m out of touch and I'm void of direction Sometimes I’ll try to hum with the wind To keep myself busy If I’m distracted I’ll be optimistic And I don’t know if I’ll go far away And I don’t know if I’m here to stay And I don’t know where i wanna be And I don’t know if I could ever be free
8.
Red Rover 03:22
I’m turning a new leaf I’m flipping over stones I wouldn’t wanna be Without you alone So would you take my hand? And never let go We’ll become the light Emerging from shadows (from shadows) And we’re gonna take this over So be sure to catch your breath We’ll face the world red rover And it’ll be the best breakthrough they’ve seen yet Don’t undermine my strength When push comes to shove Cuz I’ll go to great lengths Defending my love I have full confidence Against all of the odds We’ll reign as champions And nothing’s stopping us (nothing’s stopping us) And we’re gonna take this over So be sure to catch your breath We’ll face the world red rover And it’ll be the best breakthrough they’ve seen yet The best breakthrough they’ve seen yet The best breakthrough they’ve seen yet The best breakthrough they’ve seen
9.
I never liked to cut corners with pride in my mouth I don't believe in the easy way out I know I should stop wearing myself thin Cuz what's the point if you're crumbling? And I've heard it all before Your reasons are excuses that you've Used in the past cuz nobody could fulfill your expectations for you You go through the motions every single day And you ask how'd it get this way You'll work ‘til you're numb and your knuckles bleed Too determined to be pitied And my tumultuous thoughts Are ringing in an echo chamber The moral dilemma of trying To fix myself or somebody else But I know it's not your fault That your scars run like a valley In a world that's stripped you bare Of any reason to be happy And it's hard to see in color When you've become desaturated But I all can ask is please don't pull me under with you
10.
Mend Again 03:50
I’ve been trying to love myself more Cuz I’m the only one I got And you can’t measure your self worth in gratitude from others Or your efforts will fall short Well I’ve been learning to let go Or they’ll get the best of me It’s the consequence that I face Because I always care too deeply Well I am unraveling at a rapid pace But when I have become undone My foundation remains I’ll pull myself back together Using my heart strings It may take some time But I will mend again I think I know what is best for me now I even learned how to fight for myself Although I’m constantly evolving You 'outta know I’ve had my doubts Well I am unraveling at a rapid pace But when I have become undone My foundation remains I’ll pull myself back together Using my heart strings It may take some time But I will mend again
