Track Name: Bright and Dark
where did everyone go
you ask
i'm still here
beside you
don't you feel me
touching your hand
you're wrapped in my arms
but you feel trapped in the sand

closing the lid on your laptop
light shutting down
you wake up in the morning
and there's nothing there
bright and dark at the same time
enough heat to last a lifetime
bright and dark at the same time
enough heat to last a lifetime

you forbid me to disappear
into the walls
i say i won't leave you
but you don't hear my call

the day won't end quickly
love doesn't fade
i'll wake up in the morning
and touch your face
even if you can't feel me
you will hear your name
bright and dark at the same time
enough heat to last a lifetime
Track Name: Why Do You Run?
this world feels like
a labyrinth sometimes
i don't blame you for
running a hundred miles

the woods they whisper
your name as you pass
rain stops dead like
birds at your tracks

don't fight your breath
don't wipe your sweat
don't cover the light
don't darken the bright

why do you run
who's chasing you
why do you run
who's chasing you
Track Name: You Don't Have To
you don't have to cover the mirrors
you don't have to hide your smile
i love all the things you hate about yourself
i love all the little mistakes you think you make
you don't have to wear an armor
you don't have to wear that mask
there is nothing left to fear when i am here
i'd forgive almost anything you do my dear
Track Name: Hole in the Ground
i see them walking
in the dark
mouths closing
and i can't understand
how you can
end up like this alone
and crying with a chip
on your shoulder so big
it can swallow you whole
i never felt like this before
empty like a glass
empty like a hole
in the ground
breaking bottles
against the wall
shaking like a leaf in fall
there is nothing
to believe
in this world
but you gotta keep
your head up just like me
look at me
i've got nothing
but you on my back
and i don't mind it at all
i never felt like this before
empty like a glass
empty like a hole
in the ground
Track Name: Abandoned Underground
spent another evening alone
surrounded but feeling destroyed
by the noises around me
people swarming like bees
my skin felt numb to the pain
my eyes were fixed to a gaze
the life lines on my palms
should have ended when i held your hand
and you let go
you left me alone
you let me down
abandoned underground
spent another evening before
you completely shut the door
left me locked inside this room
camera lens stuck in a zoom
people looking like strangers
each corner hiding secret dangers
and you let go
you left me alone
you let me down
abandoned underground
Track Name: I Won't Consider This
until there's nothing left to say
i won't consider this
until there's no time left to wait
i won't consider this
until there's no one left behind
i won't consider you have left
for the very last time
i won't consider you to be the one
who has won this fight
you don't get to be the one
who ever says the last goodbye

until there are no tears in your eyes
i won't consider this
until there are no roads left to burn
i won't consider this
until you keep your word
i won't consider a thing that you say
to have an ounce of truth
on any given day
i won't consider you to be the one
who has given up this fight
you don't get to be the one
who ever says goodbye
Track Name: Brilliant Dreams
i know you meant well
but it's not how it seems
to their eyes
in their thoughts
you're just a stranger
a stranger

brilliant dreams
during daylight
just seem
like fantasies
wishes on a star
falling from afar
exploding in tiny little pieces

i know you mean to tell
the truth about how you feel
but in their eyes
in their thoughts
you're just a reminder
just a reminder

brilliant dreams
during daylight
just seem
like fantasies
wishes on a star
falling from afar
exploding in tiny little pieces

a ghost in the highway
crashing into cars
waiting for contact
just a liar underwater
burning to tell the truth

brilliant dreams
during daylight
just seem
like fantasies
wishes on a star
falling from afar
exploding in tiny little pieces
Track Name: Less Than Nothing
why did you invite me to this world
of such beauty
of such opulence
i try to find my place in this room
but i'm nothing
i'm less than nothing

feeling like a monster tonight
keep my head down
keep my eyes closed
far from the sight
all through the night
i keep asking myself
why am i with you
why are you with me

there's no reason or rhyme
we don't belong together
are you blind
there's no way everyone doesn't see it
mismatched pair
striking out

feeling like a monster tonight
keep my head down
keep my eyes closed
far from the sight
all through the night
i keep asking myself
why am i with you
why are you with me
