Track Name: Lose My Cool
Wasted my time with mistaken advice
Went down that road. Arrived nowhere.
Not recently started to feel like there's been a bit more give on my end and I've had enough.

What does it take to get what I need?
Because you keep asking for another piece of me.

I lost my cool today,
Got down on everything
It's just I get so stressed it seems

to get ahead you have to rid you of yourself.
Make everything you know everything you knew.
Track Name: Black Wind
That off quiet when we don't feel we're all alone
I give it too much thought
Well it haunts

I begin to wonder: could this be it?
How i come undone?
and if I will

Black wind has got me spooked all over again
Is it for me that they have been sent?
Am I done?

And I begin to wonder if it's not going so well
How's it come undone?
And if I will

I'm always checking behind me
Off quiet
I thought I heard something

I'm out here waiting for sirens
Off quiet
And all I got was this silence
Track Name: Always Remain (feat. Dylan Farrugia of Oslow)
Like Autumn, not glad you're leaving.
Maybe i'm too comfortable and i fear that you'll forget my face
or no longer able to relate.

Like that final leaf, off that branch you'll fall
where you'll bend and grow cold.

Now, moving on; are you still charmed
or have i been lost?
Cut out my tongue because i can't tell

if i leaked out on to your floor would you leave me?
Don't cover me up (always remain)

I just wanted to stay inside your head but those feeling are dead
Now, moving on...

I just wanted to leave part of myself but those feelings are dead
Now, moving on...

Like that final leaf, off that branch you feel
Now bend and grow cold
Track Name: Bitter Sting
Can we pretend, make some plans
Like we use to do when that chance was around?

Don't beat yourself up man
We all feel unfulfilled
Like it backed off slowly and then just disappeared

Patiently, I was waiting for the right time
to open my mouth but it never came around

Don't beat yourself up man, we all feel underprepared
Like your hands could be showing a bit more wear

Don't beat yourself up man, you did all that you can
Yes you wore your skin as well as intended

The bitter sting when it leaves you wishing
Track Name: Dive
Seek out some shade out of view
It felt good to let that phase die
You murmured something
I could not hear
I took a dive, but you followed

We are all under water so tears can not be seen
Each time I come back up for air I want to dive back in
Track Name: Lackadaisical
Set fire to my chair
I needed to distract myself

Fall further
No leaps forward
Don't you bother

The seasons change but we're still the same
I just want to feel like we had bloomed

Today I felt so sick that we'd never get away from this
I just want to dance carefree on the ashes of our old selves
