Track Name: Euphoria
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
Track Name: Hurricane
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
Track Name: Suspension
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
Track Name: Givers/Takers
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
Track Name: Skin
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
Track Name: Mischief Machines
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
Track Name: Hum
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
Track Name: Red Rover
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
Track Name: High Expectations
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
Track Name: Mend Again
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
