Track Name: This Frequency We Share
Falling fast to nowhere
A bullet passing by
Caught a glimpse of something
Connecting here inside

In this moment I’m in tune
Momentarily with you
And then you said

Leave me
There’s nothing here to figure out
Believe me

Our chemicals connected
A constant state of mind
Collapsing into nothing
The images rewind

Voluntarily consumed
In this moment here with you
And then you said

Leave me
There’s nothing here to figure out
Believe me

You knew
Don’t forget
You knew
All there was to know
You knew
Don’t forget anything

You can’t remember all the words you lost
And there’s nothing you could say to me to make me understand
You won’t let me out
You won’t forget me

We collided in a dream
You has something here for me
(and then you said)
In this moment I’m aware
Of this frequency we share

Leave me
There’s nothing here to figure out
Believe me

You knew
Don’t forget
You knew
All there was to know
You knew
Don’t forget anything
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: No Answer
Run me into darkness
You run me underground
It's how you're keeping our numbers down

More of your deception
The last thing that we need
Turn your head as though you don't see

Defending the way you feel
Remember it’s something real

Are you there?
No one answers
Stay away, I thought that you cared
So alone cause no one answers
Are you there?

One intention takes us
Cause we belong to fear
Made to follow the sounds we hear

Called you to attention
But you're just standing by
Couldn’t care if we live or die

Defending the way you feel
Forgetting the lives you steal

Are you there?
No one answers
Stay away, I thought that you cared
So alone ‘cause no one answers
Are you there?

We are who we are
Can’t change who we are

Are you there?
No one answers
Stay away, I thought that you cared
So alone ‘cause no one answers
Are you there?
Track Name: Get On With It
How will you ever get there now that you’re always looking behind?
You’re already dead, hung by a thread and know this
Already dead, but nothing was said
It’s in your mind but it seems so real to you now

Just wait a minute
Just wait for a minute alone

Come on now and listen
To what I’m trying to say
This is your decision
So get on with it

Why must you always fake it?
Try just to be yourself for a while
You’re already dead, hung by a thread, and feel this
Already dead, but nothing was said
Come back to life and I’m sure you’ll figure it out

Just wait a minute
Just wait for a minute alone

Come on now and listen
To what I’m trying to say
This is your decision
So get on with it

Come on now and listen
Don’t turn and walk away
Cause this is your decision
So get on with it
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: It's Over Now
What am I going to say when you’ve gone on your way?
I’m scared that I can’t even open my eyes
And I don’t want to hear you say to me

You say it’s all over now

But I don’t want to know, don’t say it
I don’t want to know, I can’t take it
Tell me that it’s not over now

What am I going to do?
Nothing’s right, there’s something I can’t see through
I’m on my own and no one else can figure it out for me now
I never thought I’d hear you say to me

You say it’s all over now

But I don’t want to know, don’t say it
I don’t want to know, I can’t take it
I don’t want to know, don’t say it
Tell me that it’s not over now

No I won’t leave now
You know I won’t leave now
So come on don’t leave now

I don’t want to know, don’t say it
I don’t want to know, I can’t take it
I don’t want to know, don’t say it
I don’t want to know, I can’t take it
Just tell me that it’s not over now
Track Name: Looking Into You
Calling out to you
Distant you remain
Nothing seems to go your way

Say you need the space
To bring you back to life
Still you feel the need to stay

I'm looking into you
The emptiness there's of no use
You never really ever wanted me to reach the end
Do you know how to give
Or just take it away?

No intent to change
You push me down below
Nothing else to for you to gain

You feel it sinking in
It draws you to the brink
Will it ever be OK?

I'm looking into you
The emptiness there's of no use
You never really ever wanted me to reach the end
Do you know how to give
Or just take it away

Take it away
Take it away
Nothing to say
Making me pay

I'm looking into you
The emptiness there's of no use
You never really ever wanted me to reach the end
Do you know how to give
Or just take it away?
Track Name: Worth The Wait
Never stop pretending you never let go
Believing you’re safe and sound
Protected with your head down
You’ll never know

There’s nothing more for you here
On a road to the wrong way home

You are the only one to say it’s well worth the wait
You are the only one who will lie to pretend like you never knew

Throw it down the doubt you’re defending now
Keeping your feet off the ground
‘Cause they seem to lock you down
You can’t move at all

There’s nothing more for you here
On a road to the wrong way home

You are the only one to say it’s well worth the wait
You are the only one who will lie to pretend like you never knew

Never stop defending, you never back down
Digging a hole in the ground
And you found a way to get through
The life that you knew

You are the only one to say it’s well worth the wait
You are the only one who will lie to pretend like you never knew
Track Name: The Unknown
You won't be the one to guide me through
The unknown separating me and you
We need the sadness to balance this, to balance this

What do you want from me?
You won’t believe me
What do you want from me?
I’m not what you need

You’re locked into this reality
You walked right into the enemy
Remaining helpless to balance this, to balance this

What do you want from me?
You won’t believe me
What do you want from me?
I’m not what you need

There’s no way to get through to you
There’s no way to get through to you

You won't be the one to guide me through

What do you want from me?
You won’t believe me
What do you want from me?
I’m not what you need
And you’re not what I need
Track Name: Surrender
One two I'm counting what for you ask me
Can't stop this constant accumulating
Unidentified objects in my mind
I wander aimless through my subconscious

My awakening is now impending
Some how descending to my surrender

And something tells me it’s overwhelming

Awaken alone, alone
The feeling's gone, it goes
To the one who avoids the connection
The feeling goes, it goes

My intuition sending transmissions
No destination can't make the connection
The mind it bends and you win again
The dream it ends with my surrender

And something tells me it’s overwhelming

Awaken alone, alone
The feeling's gone, it goes
To the one who avoids the connection
The feeling goes, it goes
Track Name: Back Where I Belong
How can I believe you when you’re always gone
I’ve tried to see beyond this, but how can I move on?
So this is how you leave me, desperate
I wish for once you’d hear those words I said

You won’t listen and this is all I want

Save me from this
Make me stop holding on

Wide awake I wonder, why I’m here
There’s nothing left for me now it’s all so clear

You won’t listen and this is all I want

Save me from this
Make me stop holding on
Save me from this
Take me back where I belong
