Track Name: Brain Dead
Turn your head
Boundless years I vowed to this intent held in my chest
Peel back my skin and see that I'm made for nothing less
Seventeen milestone's sung faced down
Safeguard I crack the next one
Down but not subjugated
Irrepressible with good intentions

When you gonna learn that you're never gonna shut me down?
Cause my hands shake for good reason now
I'll write on my own grounds
Cause I'm not brain dead

Waiting for the night I can finally turn my shit back around
Cause my hands shake for good reason now
I'm fucking rapturous
Cause I'm not brain dead

Hazed, outgrown these days
I spent half dead, sleep walking
Thrive cause I'm fucked if I can't throw more up
Regurgitate, words to a page
To prove I'm worth of something
More than a letter to my name

What would my weight be in this life
If I carry three tonnes in bags under my eyes?
Hope it's all worth it
That I just dropped it

Teens with predestined ends
Overthrown by a state where
Worth is how much you'll bend
Before you break it's not that
I don't want to fit in
It's just my brain won't take
The toxins that school put in

What did you expect well of course people come to hate
everything we're served if it's force fed from a plate
I'm dead, but you said
"Don't crawl into your grave with only one year of this place"
You lied, it's not fine
It's the same routine with a different formed disguise
Stand on my own feet
I won't be whats around me

When you gonna learn that you're never gonna shut me down?
Cause my hands shake for good reason now
I'll write on my own grounds
Cause I'm not brain dead

Waiting for the night I can finally turn my shit back around
Cause my hands shake for good reason now
I'm fucking rapturous
Cause I'm not brain dead

I'm burning up again
I'll break before I bend
Track Name: Undertow
Fucking weak and fed up
Can't remember the last time I tried
And found that I'd succeed
Washed out by waters and harsh tides
My minds an ocean I can't please

Trying to convince myself
That's it's okay to be broken
That I can't help
There's no hand to my pen
That writes my feelings
A backwash from bad things

Trying to please everyone else
In this stubborn instruction
Set all that I've built
To this concrete construction
I'll wreck this building
Cause I'm not sewn to strings

Naive, headstrong, in the clouds
But won't be told by
People that crawl the ground
Don't expect to hear me when I call down
From the place you told me
I can't conquer my doubts

It's safe to say
I lost little part of me
Along the way
I guess growing took its toll me

I look the same
as when I was so young and so free
Inside my brain
It's a fucked up world that you can't see
Taken aback, no stability
Never proved easy finding ground in anything

Tired eyes seek for direction
The consequences for walking my own way
My hands shake with rejection
For pushing against these relentless
Tides that guide my feet
With an Undertow in my mind
My heart can breathe

Fucking weak and fed up
Can't remember the last time I tried
And found that I'd succeed
Washed out by waters and harsh tides
My minds an ocean I can't please

Fighting on, keeping up
Whilst the world steps on my heart
Get knocked down, but restart
Cause I'll play no other part
Than this fight
That I'll fucking go to hell with
Don't mind walking on flames
If it means I'll come out smiling

I was taught,
To set myself on fire
To keep warm
Others and their desires
I won't hurt
For your worth
It's my earth
It's my turn
Track Name: Wasting Life
My future's incandescent fire
All fuelled by passion burning
Although nothing is in control
Mesmerised by my doubts burning
Our hearts will beat
Like wild beasts
That's why our ribs are cages
We'll fight for dreams
With grounded feet
Because we're born for this

I'm wasting life
All the fucking time
I'm ready for the next step
Don't go tripping on it

Give me a last time
I did this for me
Because it felt right
Not because it seemed
What this rigid world thinks I should do
Not what my heart and soul were born to do
Came far too close
To giving this in
Complete denial
Of what's within
I can't lie to myself again

I'm wasting life
All the fucking time
I'm ready for the next step
Don't go tripping on it

Quit wasting time
Fate's falling into line

(Give me a last time
I did this for me
Because it felt right
Not because it seemed)

I'm wasting life
All the fucking time
I'm ready for the next step
Don't go tripping on it
Track Name: Critical
I break my fingers
Just so I can't feel your words
I'm sick to the ends
Of taking your burdens
It's not my fault
that your scarred and hurt
From something we both have
Felt the burns

It's inevitable that I'd write a song about you
When everyday I want to be right there beside you
Cause I know you're damaged
If you wasn't such a bitch
I might even feel sorry for you
It's so incredible that I still want to love you
When you're just giving shit that we will have to pull through
Cause I know you're damaged
If you wasn't such a bitch
They might even feel sorry for you

Yeah we've both had it hard
But the only thing left difficult
Is trying to resonate with you
You're spinning way too fast
For me to hold this on or bother
Running around circles with you

Mirrors and roundabouts
Out of control
Critical
You drive the knife
That's stabbing you
And now you're working out
You point the finger
But the only one you end up hurting is you

In fear I'm looking for discontent
Merely for the sake of it
How could I ever trust you
If you're smashing through
Any ground that we make?

Re evaluating my side of the river
Double checking that it's not my side that quivers
Due to come tumbling in
But I didn't check the bridge
That still weakly connects me to you

Don't want to give up, lost all kind of trust
Do I let this out, or shut you out,
Do I let you in?
Risk good heart caving in

Yeah we've both had it hard
But the only thing left difficult
Is trying to resonate with you
You're spinning way too fast
For me to hold this on or bother
Running around circles with you

Mirrors and roundabouts
Out of control
Critical
You drive the knife
That's stabbing you
And now you're working out
You point the finger
But the only one you end up hurting is you

I'll say these words before I let this go
I'll hold these lyrics to my chest so that I know
Maybe bruised arms will make my head hang low
These wounds tail crucial lessons that'll help me grow

Though thoughts infect my brain
The situation remains the same way
I've spent 6 years stitching up my broken frames
I'll never let my heart come caving in
Now stronger than you think

Mirrors and roundabouts
Out of control
Critical
You drive the knife
That's stabbing you
And now you're working out
You point the finger
But the only one you end up hurting is you

I'll breath in acceptance
Whilst you scream out its rejection
