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...?

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: 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: 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: Time.
//// Time.

Forgot who I was, with her go my wants...

I can't help it, I need something more in life.
You can't help it because you didn't see it
looming all this time.

Future void of me last night in my dreams...

I can't help it, I need something more in life.
You can't help it because you don't see it
I need time.

This is what I need to seize my world, my wants...
Mark my words, in time...

////
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: Up Late
//// Up Late

It starts with one loss.
It starts in a home.
And you cannot believe what he said, what he did
Can we still get out?

Truth can only wait so long.
Two can only fake so long.

I have seen the future and it feels like every face you make
Where frigid tones convey the pulse of every little word mistaken.
Every word, scrutinized
I can't stand to wait that long,
Ain't it sad you never wavered to show me who you really are?

Wide awake waiting for the time to slow
What this is, isn't really like those dreams you never get
Wide awake waiting for the time to slow
What exists isn't really like those dreams you never get your head around

Coming home at 4am to a bed turned over like someone had invaded
Catch him with a foreign love,
Reaching for the door you slam
Sweating with his beat red hands,
Abusing faith to make amends
I'm sorry its not as black and white

Wide awake waiting for the time to slow
What this is, isn't really like those dreams you never get
Wide awake waiting for the time to slow
What exists isn't really like those dreams you never get your head around

////
Track Name: No Ordinary Love
//// No Ordinary Love

I gave you all the love I've got I gave you more than I could give,
gave you love...
I gave you all that I had inside and you took my love,
you took my love...

Didn't I tell you what I believe?
Did somebody say that a love like that won't last?
Didn't I give you all that I've got to give baby?

I gave you all the love I've got I gave you more than I could give,
gave you love...
I gave you all that I had inside and you took my love,
you took my love...

I keep crying, I keep trying for you
There's nothing like you and I baby...

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love

When you came my way,
you brightened every day with your sweet smile

Didn't I tell you what I believe?
Did somebody say that a love like that won't last?
Didn't I give you all that I've got to give baby?

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary 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.
