Track Name: What I Saw in the Waves
What I saw in the waves,

When fall arrived,
I stood up straight and walked right
And when the walls came down,
Over your mind,
You spoke to me,
That it's okay
I'll be fine,
That its over now,
It's all alright.
But I knew that this was a lie,
Your purchase couldn't outweigh
What came.
Words are empty,
Meaning nothing.
Cuz we're alone.
We still stand up tall,
Still try to fake.
We're just passing by,
Every chance,
We don't take.
We're lying now,
We're dying now.
And I saw hope in the waves,
But fear crept in and
Wouldn't let it stay
I still see her,
Those waves,
Let one catch my hand,
Pull me away
Track Name: I Wish it Was My Fault
I wish it was my fault. (Love is something, but I am nothing.)

You say, that I'm the only one who will have you,
And that might would be okay,
But too bad you won't take me anyways.
I guess you remember what it was like to have me.
And you remember being happy.
But too bad you won't take me anyways.
I guess you decided that I was broken,
That you couldn't wear my name
Or let it even trail beside yours
You "didn't need me",
You "couldn't even use me",
That "love was better off without me",
And that you feel the same
I think maybe its time that I think the same.
The more I say it, the more I might mean it
But maybe not, my heart still drops,
At the thought, of your face.
And your name, trickles down,
makes my edges round,
And soft, just the thought of your name.
I wish that mine still did the same.
When it came to your ears.
Almost wish that mine brought you tears.
Wish I actually did something.
Wish it wasn't just your pointless fears.
That made it die.
That made it hide.
Wish it was my fault.
And not the "nothing that kills."
I wish it wasn't all for nothing
I wish what was meant something
Love is something, but I am nothing.
Track Name: I Think I'm Becoming My Insecurities
I think I'm becoming my insecurities,
Because they're all I see,
When I look in the mirror,
I don't see me
I don't see, anything

Do you remember when I said you have nothing to fear,
When I'm near,
Well I'm here.
But I'm afraid,
That you aren't
Just another one etched in my heart.

You are nothing more than public art

Tell me I have nothing to fear,
That one day someone will be here,
Someone will be near, to me
Let me see something clear
Will Someone to show me the love that left you
Come running in, stumbling in

Say that they won't let the nothing that got the best of you
Wont take them too.
Track Name: Everything Blends
We're all searching for shelter, well atleast I am.
Im invested in that unsafe safety,
Lost in the noise,
The cluster.
Will I find the sound that stands out,
Everything blends.
The start sounds the same as the end,
And I can't tell which place I'm in.
Where's your song,
I know it's yours,
but let me listen.
Maybe ours can blend.
Maybe then we can blend,
And this house my soul is will be one worth living in.
Just let me listen,
Yours might have long since thinned and like mine needs to thicken,
Maybe I'll just slip on in,
Maybe you are a place that I'll fit in.
And our song will be one worth singing.
(Maybe, maybe, I'm still singing maybe,
I'm still hanging on,
To the waves,
Maybe the hope will lead me,
Maybe I'll get swept to sea,
Maybe it'll leave me be.)
Maybe maybe.)
We sing in dissonance
Track Name: What I've Built Up
What I've build up
Lets watch it fall
Because I'm giving up
It's been too long,

And the stress has been so much
Life has lost it's touch

Im just sick and tired of everything not turning out
Or coming out right,

I'm changing pace,
Let me get out
You can't expect the walls to hold up now
Let me out,
I'm leaving now.
