Track Name: More Than Skin Deep
I can't control my faults. I promise
These thoughts of mine have nearly lost it.
I can't control my faults. I promise. I can't.
A badge of hate is more than skin deep.
It's sewn with dreams that never left me.
I second guess cause I'm the black sheep to death.


Skies are bluer when the clouds subside.
Just like it was in the summer time.

Fears. Violent motives. Wrongful passion. Shameful memories.
Seize tasteless urges. Selfish wishes. All the same to me.
But I don't wanna win, just wanna survive.
Pressure made the diamond. You know I got mine.
The "what if's" will eat you alive.
I can't control my faults. I promise
These thoughts of mine have nearly lost it.
I can't control my faults. I promise. I can't.
A badge of hate is more than skin deep.
It's sewn with dreams that never left me.
I second guess cause I'm the black sheep to death.
Track Name: What I've Been Missing
Take me by the hand and show me what's behind these walls that see the night sky.
I'm never gonna let this go.
Swept me off my feet right then. Never really saw this from the outside.
Ignorance is bliss again.
Bitter sweetness I've been missing help me while I bite this bullet.
Open eyes have painted pictures, try to look back just to make sure.

It's on my mind.
An up decline.
This world is mine.

Bring it back take a look around. Breathe in.
It was lost but was never found til then.
Sinking. I can't see light, I can't see darkness, but I swear I'm alive.
What if I told you the world was all mine? Would you come with me until the day we die?
Feeling up.
I'm never gonna let this go.

Water skies let out their cries and flooding up what we once thought was divine.
Nothing ever stays the same.
I'm at peace with what has changed, never over welcome gotta exchange.
Make it through another day.
Candle lights in rainy weather shine a hope that I sequester.
Walking blind was never better. past is future never lesser.

What if i told you the world was all mine? Would you come with me until the day we die?

Feeling, I can't see light, I can't see darkness but I swear I'm alive.
I'm never gonna let this go.
Track Name: Now Here (Say It To My Face)
Can't stand you not standing me. I'm a mess.
Lost a piece of my clover, I'll get it back.
Reassurance ignoring me, dissarayed.
I'm undressing your secrets from far away.
I'm crazy. You're tired.
I know you know I know just let it go.

Just say it to my face. to my face.
You know I'll set the pace. set the pace.
I am fine with the distance but i can lie.
The deceiver a thousand times. never know what my grin can hide.
Far away see what i can find. Go someplace where the sun dont shine.
Never see me again thats fine. I'll be looking down from clown 9.

The funny thing never was what you said, the strange ways you act when in front of your friends.
and i'm down, down, down. Never hearing the sound, sound ,sound.
But I'm fine I don't need this shit.
I'm tired of waiting for things to fix.
It all starts with me and my self-respect.
Respect for the life that I wish I lead.

Don't believe in me. I believe in myself.
Can't take that from me. You can't take that from me.

Just say it to my face. to my face.
You know I'll set the pace. set the pace.
I am fine with the distance but i can lie.
The deceiver a thousand times. never know what my grin can hide.
Far away see what i can find. Go someplace where the sun dont shine.
Never see me again thats fine. I'll be looking down from clown 9.
Track Name: This Helps Me Sleep At Night
Dancing in the eyes of mirrors make it clearer.
More unbalanced on the inside than what's implied.
This is restless, Tear in my chest.

It seems like everyday I can barley sleep at night.
But baby just remember this world is beautiful and so are you.

Tiring eyes, weak in the knees. Rolling this day the fuck off me.
As I lay here.
It's acceptance just for you just in case everything breaks through out of control.
Out of control.

Dancing in the eyes of mirrors make it clearer.
More unbalanced on the inside than what's implied.
Wake 2 AM. Sit, think, write this.

It seems like everyday I can barley sleep at night.
But baby just remember this world is beautiful and so are you.

Tiring eyes, weak in the knees. Rolling this day the fuck off me.
As I lay here.
It's acceptance just for you just in case everything breaks through out of control.
Out of control.

Tiring eyes, weak in the knees. Rolling this day the fuck off me.
As I lay here.
As I lay here.
