Track Name: Six in the Morning
Laugh away the days
Stay up alone all night
On the sofa while she's fast asleep
there was fire in her eyes
as the sun lit up the sky
that all ended and made me feel week

out the window I could see
cloudy skies ahead of me
but it still
caught me by surprise
such comforting advice
matched with fire in her eyes
made me anxiously await
the storm that could arise

all the snow
the bitter cold
would melt away one day
she said things would be okay
all we know
and all we hold dear
will fade away the same
only memories remain

It's six again and the sun as flooded in
but the morning was much colder than the night
it's six again and it's finally setting in
that my precious little angel had taken flight

You're such a beauty when you smile
a work of art stuck in denial
won't you let yourself shine brighter
mend your tired lonely mind
You're such a beauty when you smile
a work of art stuck in denial
won't you let yourself shine brighter
mend your tired lonely life
Track Name: Dian Keto
I'm growing so exhausted of the way I live my life
Constantly belittled by the daily strife
of living in a world, that keeps tearing me down
I'm sick of living in my head
wasting away in my bed

I'm still waiting
for everything to fall into place
for everything to feel okay
it's so frustrating
how everything keeps falling apart
and nothing good ever stays

Before the banks got involved
there was a burning resolve, inside
I won't let it die
They keep looking at me
they're trying to make me feel weak
but I'm still alive
I'm still alive

It's not okay
to spend all of your days
wishing you could run away
it's not alright
to spend all of your life
wishing you could die

Don't you cry
my darling
you'll be alright
my darling

I keep waiting for the world to change
but everyday it seems to get worse
whole weeks pass me be
I'm constantly inside my mind
and never sleep at night
Track Name: Backpain
Could you try
to open up your mind
and laugh about the simple fact
we're all the same inside
just think about
someone other than yourself
the more you take and act so fake
the more you're hurting them

oh you're wasting all their money
and you're wasting all their time
now you're wasted in the bathroom
and once again you're crying

I had such faith in you
But I'm starting to wonder why
I had such hope for you
but you're not even trying

I've been dreaming of better days, long since past
I was hoping they'd last

Have you forgotten what your life was like
before you were in love
have you lost yourself inside of him
is he all you're thinking of

How can he love you if you don't love yourself
No one can love you if you don't love yourself

I've been dreaming of better days, long since past
I was hoping they'd last
I've been dreaming, of promises that weren't kept
I don't have much left

Where were you when the cold came in
or did it sneak in through the window you left open months ago
another notice on the door, another phone call gone ignored
and you won't talk to me anymore

It's freezing cold
everywhere inside my home
So I'll stay huddled near the open stove
all alone
it's freezing cold
everywhere outside my home
so I'll keep wondering alone
Track Name: All Summer
I was basking in the moonlight
but I thought it was the sun
I've been hiding in my bedroom
as all my friends were having fun
there were creatures from the forest
crawling into my bed
I fought dragons from the tower that looms overhead

I was wide awake all summer
I was broken and alone
I was running from the spirits that had invaded my home
oh I'm aching for adventure but I'm trapped in what I know
forever hopeful I'll grow stronger forever angry it won't show

This cursed place I've been living in
It's been wearing me down
All their eyes are filled with judgement
and they're lying through their teeth about me

I'm so sorry to admit
My heart's ablaze
and it's nothing to do with you
there is meaning in the water and that godforsaken couch
I'm willing
to throw you away

I've been writing out of context
in a desperate attempt
to eradicate the complicated
woes that are left
from the days we left behind
and the words I've kept inside because
ultimately
I am the enemy

they say that home is where the heart is and I believe it to be true
but my broken heart is scattered and I'm not sure what to do
my ways of coping with my loneliness are the reasons I'm alone
My love for life one sided but I'm fine on my own
Track Name: Count your Blessings
There's really nothing beautiful
In the meaningless lines
That we tell to our lovers
To help them sleep at night
There’s something pitiful
In the countless lies
that we repeat to our mirrors
Things will be better one day
If we just sit and wait
Watching tv on the couch
And do nothing but complain
Let's spend the money we've saved
And live for today
By watching tv on the couch
And finding more ways to complain
never dare to try
You might get hurt again
There's evil in the eyes
Of all of your close friends
And in the end
Who gives a fuck about life
We all die anyway
Take the easy way out
It's what you're used to
Take the easy way out
Run away from it all
Count your blessings my friend
You've found such a happy end
A brand new lover and another new leaf
Is it worth it, is it fun?
Do you think that she's the one?
Do you need her, is she cute?
Is she suffocating you
In a sence, innocence is made to fade away
And yet we're trying to fight the passing of age
Taking debts and taking drugs
Breaking hearts and making love
Moving back in with our parents
After we've had enough
My darling
Your only failure was giving up
On yourself
My darling
Your only failure was giving up on yourself
Count your blessings my friend
You've found such a happy end
A brand new lover and another new leaf
Is it worth it, is it fun?
Do you think that she's the one?
Do you need her, is she cute?
Is she suffocating you
There was a moment by the lakeside
While we shivered and we cried
When The moonlight lit the forest
And reflected in your eyes
I touched your lovely sweater
For the very last time
But I never heard a goodbye
Track Name: Homes
I sat screaming
At the water
While the storm clouds ran from the sun
I must have
Sat alone for hours
I was too afraid of everyone
In the morning I will wake and travel far from here
And I still can’t believe that I’ve grown so old
but the water’s still my friend she never asked for anything
I can’t give
And in the morning I will wake and feel an emptiness
And I still can’t believe I’ve grown so cold
But the water gives me comfort
She makes it easier to live
Unlike you
You’re empty
Void of life
And I don’t know if I’ll make it through the night
All at once it came crashing
Through the roof of my home
When I thought I might be strong enough to make it on my own
All my demons they awoke
Just to prove that I’m wrong
I’m too old to be innocent and too young to be strong
I know
There’s a reason that I’m still awake
And I know
If I keep fighting I’ll find it in time
Eyes stayed wide
Open all through the night
Tears made sleep
Near impossible to find
Oh our goodbye
Left me broken and tired
I’m too young to feel this bitter
and numb inside
I know
There’s a reason that I’m still awake
And I know
If I keep fighting I’ll find it in time
All at once it came crashing
Through the roof of my home
When I thought I might be strong enough to make it on my own
All my demons they awoke
Just to prove that I’m wrong
I’m too old to be innocent and too young to be strong
