Arriana Corr "You pulled me in and threw me out again," hits home. But this track doesn't let you stay sad about it; it makes you let go and see what has happened clearly now looking back, the guitars are like ocean waves rushing above your head with layers of vocals that really rise up at the end of the song and help to wash out old emotions and make you proud to stand your ground as who you are today. Favorite track: In My Place.

Track Name: Wilt
Set me on fire and I'll get used to it
Cause I still have heart inside this sunken chest
I'll start new rounds
Wilt out my ends
I'll loose my ground
Then start again
Send me to drown on your account and I will float for you
My practiced mindfulness seats myself above you
I've got my peace
You can't forgive
Whilst I can breathe
And you boil beneath your skin
I'm not giving out just to be torn to pieces
I've been around and learnt to win my demons


I kinda like that my bodies all broken
It's giving a pen to my unspoken words
Reconcile my thoughts with ecstasy
Conspiring eyes show me thoughts of fallacy
I've come to find I'm in charge of perception
The judgements mine and I'm dragging contentment out
Reconcile my thoughts with ecstasy
Conspiring eyes show me thoughts of fallacy


It took sustain for me to get to here
I won't slip back, remain placid and face the fear
That held me down
Up until now
I'm not afraid
To put things back into place
Strong dispositions, ammunition,
Hold fight without flame
I'll man the bullet not the gun
That holsters in my brain

I'm not giving out just to be torn to pieces
I've been around and learnt to win my demons


I kinda like that my bodies all broken
It's giving a pen to my unspoken words
Reconcile my thoughts with ecstasy
Conspiring eyes show me thoughts of fallacy
I've come to find I'm in charge of perception
The judgements mine and I'm dragging contentment out
Reconcile my thoughts with ecstasy
Conspiring eyes show me thoughts of fallacy


Praise my demons
I owe them that much
Trades for teaching me through my bad luck
Thank my demons
I owe them that much

Praise my demons
I owe them that much
Trades for teaching me through my fuck ups
Thank my demons
I owe them that much
Trades for teaching me through my fuck ups
Track Name: In My Place
Try to get closure from a one way switch
I built my spine from broken promises
You're the type to break the knees I knelt to prey
For dispositions that seem to bring sustain
I sat on lower frames, before I knew to say
The words that shed light on your fallen skin
I'd show some truth to bind my lips again
I deserve more than this selfishness
You'll turn to find when you're done shedding skin
There's no one left praising


You pulled me in, like no one else ever did and I fell for it
A promise you won't keep but a trick I'll keep believing
I'd point finger if you weren't waiting to bend it back
You pulled me in, then threw me out again


Built a basement, Just to loath it
Cause I knew it came from buried boldness
A displacement of my courage
Now I'm tearing through the strings that tied me to old habits
In my place and
I knew I'd never dare stop playing at your marionette
But now I break the strings that kept me tongue tied
A punishment I won't resign


You pulled me in, like no one else ever did and I fell for it
A promise you won't keep but a trick I'll keep believing
I'd point finger if you weren't waiting to bend it back
You pulled me in, then threw me out again


I forced my trust for way too long
A rope you pulled on
It frayed and I stopped trying
The other side, I had moved on
And I'm now headstrong
Cause I'm done with crying

I'm now something you'll regret cause I'm now
Not so damn foolish

Take your heart
A decoy I won't fall for and I'm right
To make the judgment, step away
Until you have found your light

Your mindless sight
A wrong that you can't right
Just know that
I hope for your sake
You turn around
Track Name: Framework
The blues skies that shelter me
Keep me apart from my despondency
Guidance becomes distaste
And ascends my skin
It's something I must face
Down on my lowest swing


I didn't sit inside for weeks to wait for something new
A pill shaped space that still remained you left me to renew


Take the time to care a little less
Drop the anchor you pinned to my chest
I'm so sick of feeling this shit, when I
Get the thoughts that keep me up at night
I'll shake them off, I deserve to feel alright
I won't hide when an open minds calling
These are the things you seek to throw back at me
Weight of the world was too much at seventeen
Hold on, breathe in, be thankful, and try my best
So I can place my hand back onto my chest


Achievement is my best bet


I'll come to let those feelings in
I spent nights in Introverted
Just to digest the thoughts that swim
With introspection of all my
Framework that I call my skin
Framework from the outside looking in


Take the time to care a little less
Drop the anchor you pinned to my chest
I'm so sick of feeling this shit, when I
Get the thoughts that keep me up at night
I'll shake them off, I deserve to feel alright
I won't hide when an open minds calling
These are the things you seek to throw back at me
Weight of the world was too much at seventeen
Hold on, breathe in, be thankful, and try my best
So I can place my hand back onto my chest


Achievement is my best bet


Rewind and restart to the nights I spent hanging out in the park
I'd had enough with nothing to do
And naivety kept me invincible


Take the time to care a little less
Drop the anchor you pinned to my chest
I'm so sick of feeling this shit, when I
Get the thoughts that keep me up at night
I'll shake them off, I deserve to feel alright
I won't hide when an open minds calling
These are the things you seek to throw back at me
Weight of the world was too much at seventeen
Hold on, breathe in, be thankful, and try my best
So I can place my hand back onto my chest


Achievement is my best bet
Track Name: Resolve
Fractious pretext
A force that I couldn't change
And yet despite all the pain
I'm at the end of a rope you frayed
Each time I try to make sense
And question new found absence
I'm talking to an old empty frame
And you can't make the time
You're certainly not inclined
To drain this hourglass of its sand
I can't keep wasting my breath
I find you've already left
It's your body that's left instead
Your skin breaks and I might be so naive
To not take the blame before I repeat
This mistake of whispering all my screams
I can't keep making out like I'm not down from being underneath


It all had a lot of mystery
That I'm the last one in your company
Long months I questioned
In your absence when I lowered and needed your hand
Indulge yourself in someone else
Whilst I battle this all by myself
But when you call and this floor falls
Just know I picked you up when you fell
Down and out again
I'm down and out again

And every time I try to give up, I keep my head up,
Cause that's what you did to me
Don't want to write another sad song
I've been there too long and it's not the way for me


I can't complain, that you shot me out
Your rounds keep running out
To save a new found girl
I won't be there when she's gone
I can't complain that you left me out
It's not my fault you took the cheap shot
Without reason
You taught me something new

Where have you been?
Cause this is bullshit
And you call yourself a friend?
Never felt so lonely
Is that such a bad thing?

My lessons learned were unintended
But that makes me stronger now
False dependance
Dissipated
I don't need you now


Indefinite to whether I should show persistence
Is life to dear to shed the one that used to listen
I can't forget that you remain incompetent
Stuck where I was before but I don't want to be there anymore
I'm not sure its even worth my strength
When all that's left is fucking sentiment
It's sad to know how strong you were
Your demons played your god eventually
You let them tell who you are
And I don't know you anymore
My words were thrown
Like knives so careless
Are you surprised the truth can hurt

I can't complain, that you shot me out
Your rounds keep running out
To save a new found girl
I won't be there when she's gone
I can't complain that you left me out
It's not my fault you took the cheap shot
Without reason
You taught me something new

Where have you been?
Cause this is bullshit
And you call yourself a friend?
Never felt so lonely
Is that such a bad thing?

My lessons learned were unintended
But that makes me stronger now
False dependance
Dissipated
I don't need you now

My caring grew to your distaste and
Now I feel wasted
When I leant, I fell straight through
A broken back from heavy descent
I lay pieces
The back of your head as my view
You taught me I don't need a person
To feel self-worth and
I've gained a ground to hold onto
This time I'll find a stable place for
All my embrace it
Is found in me, not you
