LOVE.
Track Name: Reminding Me To Live
//// Reminding Me To Live

If I said I was to bring you good news,
that all you seek is well within your reach that you go for
On your hands and knees is an old routine,
just say no more and everything you ask for is yours

There's no use choosing between those two sides when it's one of those universal truths.

These days coming close to ends reminding me to live
These days coming close to ends reminding me to live

Seek your own truths and settle into your roots.
There's no time like now to roar like rivers do.

These days coming close to ends reminding me to live
These days coming close to ends reminding me to live

To sing the tune of my soul...

I've felt such loss that I was numb from hands to feet.
While bad seeds go breed motives like fear and greed,
I just wanna love…

I just wanna love.

////
Track Name: Ride The Snake
//// Ride The Snake

Let me start this over one time,
my body just ain't doing what my will commands...
I hurt my wings while doing things I shouldn't be doing at all

I've got my head underwater

Are we just slaves to the things unknown?

And before you know it you're lying down face up wondering how it all could end like so.

Made excuses not to live and I put them all to good use and where was I left?
If you could see your own future, what would you do differently right now?
I've got my head underwater
Head underwater...

I don't want to be one who looks back in regret.
I won't be buried wondering if I ventured far enough in this life
No more chances…
And before you know it, you're lying down face up wondering how it all could end like so...
But just keep calm and carry on,
you know our love's the only thing'll get us through
Keep calm and carry on, just carry on

Keep calm and carry on...
Keep calm and carry on...

There's no more time to hide out when the future's not set in stone,
so do what you really love and fuck all the rest.

Track Name: Mercury [And Opposite Planets]
//// Mercury [And Opposite Planets]

Sometimes we're the sun and moon
Two notes sung just slightly out of tune
With paths that met at our appulse, now your gravity is what pulls me back to you

True, I'll never find another one of you
Cause you are the center of my reeling universe

Our love, deep oceans...
Our love, one beat...

Love

How do you know when you've found it?
I couldn't do it justice in so many words
If it's meant to be for you, you'll find the answers out all on your own

Our love, volcanic
Our love lasts time
We may be opposite worlds, but our love still holds up fine

Let them know what they mean

Mercury...

Track Name: The Pressure
//// The Pressure

I won't say I don't feel the pressure
I can't say I don't feel the pressure
If this is just the way it is,
I guess I'll have to cope with it until the wheels come off.

Now you're hoping that I won't go,
and I'm waiting for you to let me deep inside of the soul that I had once known.
Now I'm waiting for you to let me deep inside

Tensions fill the space in between us
Lose yourself in a moment of weakness
She tied me down just to make sure I wasn't going anywhere

And you're hoping that I won't go
Now I'm wanting you to let me deep inside of the soul that I had once known
And I'm waiting for you to let me deep inside

Baby girl, we're just complicating something simple
Hear me out, its the words we take in worst of ways that hurt

Could she be the only one that can make me come undone?
Could she be the only one that can make me come undone?

I won't say I don't feel the pressure...

////
Track Name: Cool My Mind | Reverie
//// Cool My Mind | Reverie

The way you cool my mind
Girl, you cool my mind
You make me feel so unrefined the way you cool my mind

Girl, I'm in pieces that you never miss me
Making me melt from the moment I saw her on the screen

In these streaks of rage I won't let go

And I know I'll never get this through to you,
so I hide behind my words and leave you at outstretched arms-length. 

Girl, I'm in pieces, no love ordinary
She made me melt from moment I heard her sing a note. 

Always in a dream, she's still too far to reach,
I can't hate you, though I have tried,
you're always too far to reach

Girl, you cool my mind.
The way you cool,
Girl, you cool my mind.

Track Name: Worst Thing I've Ever Done
//// The Worst Thing I've Ever Done

I let the stress take all my wind
I let the darkest demons in
I should have known these aching pains lay deep inside,
but in my weakness, I let the spool of yarn unwind.

And now I take the bitter pill, making a mess of what I've spilt.
(Baby, what a mess)
And it's a tragedy to let it spiral down and down
You were the last person I'd ever want to drown.

(And now I know the consequence)

At my low, I let the drinking take full control
In my head, this is the worst thing that I've ever ever done

Stuck in a place we only wade,
watching my world crash down in spades
And If I could ever try to quantify the reasons why,
it might still never ease that hurt.
So take my pain for what it's worth,
I know I've dragged my name beyond the dirt.
And repeat apologies won't heal your damaged heart I'm sure
It's not my best, but it's a start.

At my low, I let the drinking take full control
In my head, this is the worst thing that I've ever ever done
At my low, I let the drinking take full control
In my head, this is the worst thing that I've ever ever done

You keep me from falling down, you make me a fool
I'm a fool for you
A filthy error, I'm hungover, but glad it's over.

////
Track Name: This Is Your Future [Lost In A Black Hole]
//// This Is Your Future (Lost In A Black Hole)

Pardon my solitude while I've been stuck in this black hole state
I shut the world out, and hit the deadbolt lock
Closed off

Cored my heart out
(You know you want to sometimes)
A temporary safety net.
(The kind that always breaks down)
I kept my head down.
(I didn't want to be seen)
And tried my best to disconnect

Empty, hollow, underwater, what I wouldn't give, what I wouldn't give
Empty, hollow, underwater, what I wouldn't give for a breath of air

I need this like a hole in my head.

No one here can pull me out
Nothing's there to ease that nerve
(I'm too preoccupied to stop)
I shunned the modern world just to hole up underground
I'm a ghost soul.

Empty, hollow, underwater, what I wouldn't give, what I wouldn't give
Empty, hollow, underwater, what I wouldn't give for a breath of air

This is your future, don't go throw it all away.
(I'm lost my love, I'm lost my love)
This is your future, don't just throw it all away.
(I'm lost my love)

This is your future, don't go throw it all away.
(I'm lost my love, I'm lost my love)
This is your future, don't just throw it all away.

Track Name: Your Past
//// Your Past

The sharks came out to feed in the last few weeks, while I'm at the bed-side scene beside myself.
All those dirty things you thought you'd never see,
wolves are only out to benefit their wealth.

They came so fast it was like a dream, tore me apart, ripped me at the seams.
I won't let my past stand in front of me.
Don't let your past take control of you.

I find I'm feeling sickened by those things you stole, you treated her like your piggy-bank charity
With all of us being honest like we tell ourselves, your toxic words were never lost on me

Feeding so fast it was like a dream (she'd never believe this)
I'm coming apart, tearing at the seams (while reeling with some resolve)
I won't let my past stand in front of me (time to cut the line)
I won't let my past take control of me (are you feeling the same way?)

Purge yourself of every little sickness.
Clear the air with those who mean the most
Leave the ones who only seek the drama
Let the past stay in the past

Feeding so fast it was like a dream
(She'd never believe this)
Tore me apart, ripped me at the seams.
(While reeling with some resolve)
I won't let my past stand in front of me
(Time to cut the line)
I won't let my past take control of me
(Are you feeling the same way?)

Track Name: Hope [Feat. Gavin Castleton]
//// Hope

All my faith gone.
All I've worn out.
Worked down to the bone with nothing left to show.
Can I find hope?

When everything just falls apart, and no one comes to make it right,
I close my heart down for the night, and I listen to the one thing left
With every breath I'm filling up with hope

All my faith gone.
All I've worn out.
Worked down to the bone with nothing left to show

Can I find hope?
(The one thing heavy on my mind, my love is always true)
Hope?
(My heart breaks wanting something new)
Hope?
(The one thing I can't get off my mind, my love is always true)
Hope?
(My heart breaks wanting something new)

Track Name: You're An Island
//// You're An Island

You're an island what could you do but go on drifting away?

It could have ended any other way,
but you got washed up in a moment taking too long
It's not easy being you, always feeling so put out,
but you're not yet, but you're not yet

I can't remember when we last spoke, it doesn't feel like years
In creating newer paths,
you tore old ones all to shreds and never looked back
You never look back.

So is it true though?
What they say about you?

You're an island, what could you do but go on drifting away?
You're an island, how could you just go on drifting away?
On my heart

Is it true though?
what they said about you?
Is it true though?
what they say about you?

You're an island,
(And now you've gone and thrown it all away)
What could you do?
(Don't just go and throw it all away)
You're an island,
(Now you've gone and thrown it all away)
Go on drifting away
On my heart...

////
Track Name: Not Giving Up Yet
//// Not Giving Up Yet

I keep asking myself, 'where do you wanna be?'
I haven't given up just yet.
I keep telling myself, 'you're right where you're supposed to be.'
I'm not giving up in my head.
...Giving up in my head.

This is what you waited for isn't it?
This is what you had wanted for so what will you do with it?

Back what you've made, if passion trumps all.
(And never have to say you're sorry, live like you've got nothing to lose)
If you over-think it, you're toast.
(On the edge of something greater)
But you only get one go.

Lessons in increments you wouldn't want to learn over.
Trust what has brought you here and now it's at your fingertips!

So this is what you were waiting for isn't it?
This is what you wanted for, what have you done with it?
Can't you see you might be already there?
Are you there...?
