Track Name: You Never Said
I'll run my mouth off like always do,
And say something ill later regret.
When reason takes out the poison,
I'm always on my own,
And in my bed.
So lets find a flaw and point it out for everyone to see,
We're all made of cracks and holes big enough to fit the sea.
You got it stuck up In your head that you need to fit a stereotype
Obey the rules grow up and live the rest of your life,
Predefined, that's fine, and now you fit in line
But then were all just the same.
I've had time to rest my head, it's temporary.
I tore the walls down in my head in hopes that I'd see clearly.
You never said we'd be on our own this soon again,
But I just hope I find some room to breathe.
Wide awake, from the caffeine that's kicked in,
I found myself, awake still and thinking.
I think fast but I'm moving slow
While everyone else gains ground and grows
I fee like one door opens just to get up my hopes
Another 10 slam shut and I'm back where I started from.
I'm back where I started from
I've had time to rest my head, it's temporary.
I tore the walls down in my head in hopes that I'd see clearly.
You never said we'd be on our own this soon again,
But I just hope I find some room to breathe.
I just hope I find some room to breathe again
You never said, That everyone thinks with their eyes and,
You never said, we wouldn't grow until we were on our own
You never said, how everyone's preoccupied with their own time,
and their own lives, you never...
I always take things too far but I think that just makes me human,
I never finish what I start but at least I know I will always be the same.
I'll run my mouth like I always do,
And I'm still wide awake.
Track Name: Sticker Slap
Learning from mistakes,
We lose ourselves, re-navigate,
and feel the pressure start to weigh in.
I've never understood the way,
We push ourselves until we break.
My one track mind, ... blinds and sticks,
A back up plan distracts and conflicts.
You only get what you give and if you don't give enough,
You can take it or leave it it's all that you've got.
This is all that we need,
I fell, These cuts won't bleed.
I feel healthy.
Invincible against this,
I took my time and more.
Never start to feel contentment,
til my feet are sore.
Act first, think later
At worst we'll pay for this.
This is a warning sign,
From everything you left behind.
You're wasting time.
I've been stuck up in my bed,
Not waking up, sleeping instead.
And I've been wasting time.
I'll do this despite you.
I'm warning, I'll fight through,
With every nerve left,
I know it's not worthless.
Track Name: Nothing In Return
Sacrifice and compromise
Bridges that I'm yet to find on my own
But they're not too far from home
I've got shoes bigger than my own to fill,
and most days I feel like I never will.
But I'm still hungry
I tried but I failed because every time I close my eyes
I saw my self in retrospective,
I saw myself through tired eyes.
I gave up everything for this and got back nothing in return
Because Everything we ever missed was everything we never learnt
I took back everything,
and tried to see,
the way we looked at everything so carelessly.
Is it obvious I'm nervous with this one?
I worry,
But I'm still hungry
Track Name: Foresight
So put me in my place
Show me all the things I waste
And tell me everything I could have been
According to your thinking
A wasted a shell with some potential
A fractured mind caught too deep into
Everything .
And the road's still paved with this,
The remains of people,
Who tried their best,
And still didn't fit.
Cause however bright you burn,
Some light gets lost in the glow.
Like the stars faded black,
Lost from the streetlight below.
Only the time will tell,
If all that's on the line will,
Fall into place as well,
As it has in my mind but
I've got to face my fears
I'm gonna take these years
And turn them into something real
I feel like everyone my age,
Is twice as far into their lives.
With better jobs and more insights
A better road, less to rewrite.
And the road's still paved with this,
The remains of people,
Who tried their best,
And still didn't fit.
I feel like everyone my age,
Is twice as far into their lives.
With better jobs and more insights
A better road, less to rewrite.
Track Name: Head Rush
I'm tired of compromise.
I tried to get through to you,
But your walls are too thick,
And everything I throw,
Just comes back again.
I tried to talk to myself,
But the words don't mean a thing,
When my head tells my heart,
There's no bargaining.
Feels like you're made of stone,
And I'm just skin and bone,
A live reminder that,
I wasn't enough for you.
I tried to disengage,
I tore myself a new page,
And told myself,
That I still wasn't enough for you.
Get some perspective,
And think before you speak next time,
Less overreacting,
You were blind, I was fine,
I thought you'd see that in time.
I was always there,
And you were always listening,
Or so it seemed.
We've never seen eye to eye.
This is a wake-up call,
For every single morning,
You've had me crawling back.
And If I start again,
I know I'll be much better,
But better isn't what I had.
Forgive me for stepping out of my place,
You were the only one left with a smile on your face.
When I was low and in deep,
You found it in me.
All I wanted was an honest reaction,
Just to get some peace of mind.
If I told you what it meant,
Would it make any difference?
This was for you.
