Calm 01:09
I am a natural survivor

Becoming exceptional At faking I’m fine In one vulnerable moment I became everything I feared Feels like I’m wearing a mask My inhibitions are constantly low Ask no questions Tell no lies So this is what rock bottom feels like I blame myself, I blame myself I won’t let this experience define who I am I blame myself, I blame myself Brace this storm, brace this storm The only way up is from here I have made it hard for myself But I’m fighting through this No more searching for an escape A new day, a new challenge to face With desperation and persistence I will stand defiant Falling into bad habits again Bury my head in the sand Looking down, I know I shouldn’t do this But I still do Ask no questions Tell no lies So this is what rock bottom feels like I blame myself, I blame myself I won’t let this experience define who I am I blame myself, I blame myself Brace this storm, brace this storm The only way up is from here I have made it hard for myself But I’m fighting through this No more searching for an escape A new day, a new challenge to face With desperation and persistence I will stand defiant Keep standing strong Never going to throw it all away I will continue to grow I’ve always tried to see how much I can get away with Brace this storm, brace this storm The only way up is from here I have made it hard for myself But I’m fighting through this No more searching for an escape A new day, a new challenge to face With desperation and persistence I will stand defiant Keep standing strong Never going to throw it all away I will continue to grow Because it’s all I know

Viper 04:26
So close to being abandoned But it’s still the two of us Apathy has grown So big it’s lonely Jump off this sinking ship Love is not always equal Drifting apart Even with our anchors lowered How can we come back from this, And share a union? Our hearts beat the same But mine is falling apart Our hearts beat the same But mine is falling behind Question mark in my heart The more I try, the more it hurts (the more it hurts) Out of sight, out of mind Is that how I find the strength to move on? Will I ever find it? Will I ever find it? Is that how we find the strength to move on? (Will we ever find it?) If you want to know where your heart is Look to where your mind goes when it wanders Have we have past the point of no return? Have we reached the summit? Are we running towards a dead end? I’m running out of time I’m running out of time Nothing lasts forever I don’t want these feelings to end I don’t want these feelings to fade I don’t want these feelings to end I don’t want these feelings to fade Our hearts beat the same But mine is falling apart Our hearts beat the same But mine is falling behind Question mark in my heart The more I try, the more it hurts Out of sight, out of mind Is that how I find the strength to move on? Will I ever find it? Will I ever find it? Is that how we find the strength to move on? (Will we ever find it?) We’re not there yet But we’re getting closer I knew it would hurt But not this much We are not there yet But we’re getting closer I knew it would hurt But not this much The more I try, the more it hurts Out of sight, out of mind Is that how I find the strength to move on? Will I ever find it? Will I ever find it? Is that how we find the strength to move on? (Will we ever find it?) Is that how we find the strength to move on? Our hearts beat the same But mine is falling apart I don’t want these feelings to end I don’t want these feelings to fade (the strength to move on)

Survive 03:36
Manic grieving is pulling me under I’ll take this energy and turn it into a strength Competition in your tears Recognition on your mind Go through the motions But just a pantomime Cry your crooked tears But you are still a fake Overwhelmed hysteria Then return to normal Seeking attention Within a tragedy Accused emotionless It’s there but you can’t see it And now I’m moving ever closer to the edge And now I’m moving ever closer to the edge And now I’m moving Manic grieving is pulling me under I’ll take this energy and turn it into a strength Through the dark clouds, through the dark nights I will survive in silence I will survive in silence I won’t search for sympathy Just like I suffer in silence I will survive in silence I heed but I won’t I heed but I won’t Finding it harder to believe you Your see through life What makes you think you have the right? To avoid the truth Your transparent narcissism Enrages me And on my own Display resilience Competition in your tears Recognition on your mind Competition in your tears Recognition on your mind

Skeleton Key 03:23
Tip the scales in my favour I can open up any door From strength to strength And always wanting more Asif I’m walking on air Own the day, won’t let the day own me Catch me if you can I’m not slowing down My spark will light up the whole sky Don’t tell me I can’t be what I want I am not defined by your opinions of me In my hand I hold the skeleton key I don’t need a leader (I don’t need to be led) Where most fear to tread No fear, no trepidation In my hand I hold the skeleton key Create my own luck I won’t wait for it to come to me Flying close to the sun As I create endless barriers Live in the moment I won’t wait for it to come to me The fire will continue to burn I won’t be a throwaway Active not reactive My euphoria has taken control You can’t knock me off I’m holding my ground, I’m holding my ground Active not reactive My euphoria has taken control You can’t knock me off I’m holding my ground, I’m holding my ground My spark will light up the whole sky Don’t tell me I can’t be what I want I am not defined by your opinions of me In my hand I hold the skeleton key I don’t need a leader (I don’t need to be led) Where most fear to tread No fear, no trepidation In my hand I hold the skeleton key My euphoria knows no bounds Now I am relentless I can’t slow down The future is mine

Evolve 04:49
If I continue there will be no endgame Living this way, I cannot sustain No more breaking promises to myself Try to justify 000 I tell myself time and time again I tell myself time and time again Even in darkness My will won’t be broken down I’ve made mistakes, I’ve made bad choices Stand up, live with integrity My conscience is just a whisper Evolve into a scream So I can start to obey And live with integrity Stop giving in You get what you deserve Need to withstand Problems I create for myself Losing balance I can’t keep walking this tightrope Losing the battle Against myself I tell myself time and time again I tell myself time and time again Even in darkness My will won’t be broken down I’ve made mistakes, I’ve made bad choices Stand up, live with integrity My conscience is just a whisper Evolve into a scream So I can start to obey And live with integrity Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Starting tomorrow it starts with me Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Even in darkness My will won’t be broken down I’ve made mistakes, I’ve made bad choices Stand up, live with integrity My conscience is just a whisper Evolve into a scream So I can start to obey And live with integrity Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change Starting tomorrow I’m gonna change
