Track Name: Letting Go
Something’s taking over and no one else will ever tell
I try to shake it off now but I’m trapped below the undertow

All I can do is try to start

Letting go, Letting go now
Letting go, Letting go
It’s your way out

It’s closing in around me and it’s not about to let me out
I’m suffocating in here there’s gotta be a better way to help this

All I can do is try to start

Letting go, Letting go now
Letting go, Letting go it’s all about
Letting go, Letting go now
It’s your way out

You’ll never find out
You’ll never see
If you don’t break out
And let it be

Letting go, Letting go now
Letting go, Letting go it’s all about
Letting go, Letting go now
It’s your way out
Track Name: Headphones
She’s thinking of the life that she loved
Stolen away from

My headphones they tell me things I didn’t know
My headphones tell me about the love I used to know

She’s thinking of a way to forget
All the things that she lets surround her
She’s taking everything she can find
To put herself in a world she knows well

My headphones they tell me things I didn’t know
My headphones tell me about the love I used to know

She’s not afraid of making mistakes
She can’t escape

My headphones they tell me things I didn’t know
My headphones tell me about the love I used to know

I know, I know
I used to know
Track Name: Digging In The Dirt
Something in me, dark and sticky
All the time it’s getting strong
No way of dealing with this feeling
I can’t go on like this too long

This time you’ve gone too far
This time you’ve gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you

Don’t talk back, just drive the car
Shut your mouth, I know what you are
Don’t say nothing, keep your hands on the wheel
Don’t turn around ‘cause this is for real

Digging in the dirt
Stay with me, I need support
I’m digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
Open up the places I got hurt

The more I look, the more I find
As I close on in, I get so blind
I feel it in my head, I feel it in my toes
I feel it in my sex, that’s the place it goes

This time you’ve gone too far
This time you’ve gone too far
I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you

Don’t talk back, just drive the car
Shut your mouth, I know what you are
Don’t say nothing, keep your hands on the wheel
Don’t turn around ‘cause this is for real

I’m digging in the dirt
Stay with me I need support
I’m digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
To open up the places I got hurt

Digging in the dirt
To find the places we got hurt
Track Name: The Cure
You seem so unbreakable but you’ve got you’re head in the clouds
No time to waste on anything but I’m sure you’ll find your way down

Thought you could show me the truth but I’m not following you

I feel this, your sickness taking you closer to the edge
I’m sure that you will find the cure that you’re looking for

Thought you could show me the truth but I’m not following you

You’ve always got me looking for the one
Always got me looking for the doorway
Run now when you’ve got nowhere to run
You will be done

A weakness invades us a weight on our shoulders everyday
Tempted to believe all of this convincing evidence in the way

Thought you could show me the truth but I’m not following you

You’ve always got me looking for the one
Always got me looking for the doorway
Run now when you’ve got nowhere to run
You will be done
Track Name: In This
Don’t look away you’ve been in the dark too long now
There’s no-one to blame and nothing’s gonna change

So don’t feel bad

We’re in this alone
And you wonder why
I don’t mind at all

Try not to care when nothing else is working
And nobody’s there to save you from yourself

So don’t feel bad

We’re in this alone
And you wonder why
I don’t mind at all

Well I don’t mind
No I don’t mind at all

We’re in this alone
And you wonder why
I don’t mind at all
