Track Name: Glasshouse
You’re so brave with your head held high
screaming down your lies
just to keep them in line
but as soon as it looks
like they’re going to fight
your armour is paper
just like your spine

Why did you go
and build your house of glass?
when your heart is full of stones
Well if you build
build your house of glass
be careful with the words you throw

Here we sit in the palm of your hand
bending to your sway
as you make your demands
your lack of control
is damaging your soul
don’t push this on me
it won’t make you feel whole

Build yourself up to unreachable heights
with foundations on sand
and these hands that will pull
straight from beneath
if you never give anything

Yeah you built yourself up
now can you hold it?
build your house of glass
and watch it break
before your eyes
Track Name: Come Alive
I wanted to feel hurt by your words
unsure of a future without you
but I couldn’t bring myself to care
there was nothing hanging in the air
don’t feel the way I should
and that speaks volumes enough

So you were gone
when I opened my eyes
I’m awake from the dream & the lie
Never meant to come alive

I understand if you don’t believe in this
just don’t try and twist me out of shape
I felt your aura drain out in front of me
but I couldn’t grieve

And now the sky can’t hold you in
and we cannot force
what would have never been
I have to let you pass me by
your moving on
was a blessing in disguise
Track Name: Run Wild
I have walked in those shoes
I get your point of view
when piece by piece you’re trying
to force together
these things that are not real
not now or ever

Are you really gonna live like this
forever?
You will always be
looking over your shoulder
You’ve let your mind run wild
you’re seeing things
that are out of sight
You’ve let your mind run wild
ghost in the night

You’re only hurting yourself yeah
and you will never feel well yeah yeah
and in this state of mind
in fear you grip too tight
but will you live your life afraid?
til it slips away

You’ve been trying to hide
from what’s inside
you’ve let your mind
let it run wild
(You’ve been trying to hide)
They visit you in the night
(but reflections don’t lie)
they’re haunting you
Track Name: This Divide
It’s so quiet all around
our footsteps barely make a sound
as we tip toe so carefully
away from problems we don’t wanna see

It’s the words we never say
that are weighing down on me
and all we know is the to and fro
There are words we never say
and I’ve fallen by the way side
can we close this divide?

Try to make myself numb
so you never see me come undone
I feel the words on the tip of my tongue
begging me to escape

We both have our demons
trying to make their way way in
but we still believe in
everything that led us
to where we are now

It’s the word we never say
that are weighing down on me
and all we know is the to and fro
There are words we never say
and I’ve fallen by the way side
can we close this divide?
when we collide
can we close this?
Track Name: Be Enough
I’m always waiting for a sign
something to tell me
I should trust my insides
Am I just in over my head
with every decision
a second guess
there is a part of me waiting
to turn back

I’ve built this place for my own
but a prison is not a home
won’t close the door
before it’s begun
I have to let this be enough

I’m always looking for direction
I need to know what it’s like
to move without restriction
A light to chase away
the shadows on the path
my fears take forms of their own
I have to leave them in the dark

Maybe this feeling is reason enough
to show me
that I’m not misleading myself
and to know
this is what I want
Track Name: Underwater
Another year has passed
I feel alive inside my head at last
and we are not running from
When another doubt is cast
just like the shadow
over my own confidence
you never stop believing in

Break the cycle in my head
this dead skin I will shed
Here I am anew
anew

I’m trying to breathe underwater
and I won’t let myself swim
I’m trying to live without borders
but I’m caging myself in
in

Another year has passed
we aren’t faded we are colourfast
and I am not running from
When another doubt is cast
I’ll light the shadow
over my own confidence
and I won’t stop believing in

Inside these walls I swore
to never let them win
Now I accept
that it was never meant to be perfect
Please bring me back
If I get lost again
so when I am underwater
I won’t breathe in
Track Name: Wildflower
Oh I know why you had to go
it doesn’t mean it’s easy for me
Something greater
is calling your name
we’ll change directions
at the end of this road

Wildflower your roots
have grown so vast
you’ve journeyed
into unchartered lands

I know that feeling you have
the need to know and not regret
just like you I can’t live like this
this means to an end
is starting to feel infinite
we need meaning again
no matter where it leads us

Wildlfower your roots
have grown so vast
you’ve journeyed
into unchartered lands
Wildflower your missing piece
is here within your reach
but if you start to lose sight
I will be there to remind you
Track Name: Disconnect
Don’t we all deserve
to sleep without fear?
There’s nothing left here
let’s leave everything we know
caught up in what we can’t control

(Our disconnect)
You are so disconnected
your heart is cold
heart is stone
You’ve turned your backs on innocents
Don’t you feel hollow?

We’re losing out on beautiful minds
all because some stars don’t align
It’s just up to fate for which side
of this imaginary divide

How do you sleep?
You’ve covered our eyes
cause your conscience sees
the way that you bring them
to their knees
Will we ever be free
or only prisoners of your apathy?
Track Name: Voices
There is a girl who’s been hiding
from the world
trying to fade away
but hoping one day to hold her ground

but she’s afraid
of what they’ll say
that she will become their prey

Voices whisper from within
they’re trying to break her skin
and she’s trying to shake
her fear of them

with every step another two back
can she find the strength within
to resist?

It’s only ever been me
Now I see
I never had the room to breathe
It was only me
who was suffocating
couldn’t let myself believe
Track Name: Warning Signs
You’ve ignored the warning signs
you’ve broken this intertwine
you’re chasing your fortune
with disregard for destruction

When you rise we all fall
soon you’ll find it’s all gone
Keep reaching out your hands
until there’s nothing left

Listen to this wake up call
you are chaos at your very core
you have chosen your reckless greed
not the future we all need

We will be left in the dust
just repeating mistakes of the past
This is all we have
so this can’t be the end
or there will be nothing left
Track Name: Where We Fell
Such wonder brings me to tears
so I focus on the moment
before it disappears
we are draining all the colour
from what once was so flawless
we can’t keep burning on forever
straight toward collapse

We have to look beyond ourselves
if we don’t care then no-one will
if we fail now it’s over
and we will bid farewell

We have to look beyond ourselves
the marks and scars we leave
will tell we never cared enough
to cover impressions where we fell

And the ocean will swallow the earth
it will take back all we’ve burnt
if we don’t realise
we still have time
And the ocean will swallow the earth
unless we realise
we can change the tide
