Track Name: Expectations
I want to tell you 'bout the end of the world
It didnt happen like you expected
Cuz everything imploded when your soul met my eyes
I want to tell you about the end of the world
I want to tell you how it happened when i let go of your hand
And i could see again
the death of wonderland

Fell in love with expectations again
Fell in love with expectations again

I want to tell you bout the end of the line
Deep inside deep inside its in your mind
Its in your eyes
Oh you lie
I wanna tell you i wanna tell you bout the end
I want to tell you how it happened when i looked in to your soul
And we would try to talk
But it would speak in code

Fell in love with expectations again
Fell in love with expectations again

I wanna give you the forecast of my mind
It’s raining from all thoughts I've idealized
But its getting better

Fell in love with expectations again
Fell in love with expectations again

And again and again and again
Track Name: Take My Hand
Lately I feel lost
Forgetful mind, Regretful thoughts
They eat away my soul
Peculiar taste with a heavier
Toll on my body, becoming somebody else
I needed to hold on
But I cannot recognize myself

But you take my hand
To remind me im here
That im not invisible
Life's just a means to an end
You take my hand

So Take my hand T-take control
I’m pulling back
Behind my skull
A breathing cadaver
Just walking so brainless so aimless
Forgive my struggle and constant stumbling
I want to be better
But I cannot recognize what's right

But you take my hand
To remind me im here
That im not invisible
Life's just a means to an end
You take my hand
And say all is forgotten
Share the weight of my problems
Cuz they won't change how you feel
When you take my hand

I'm calling your name
But if I wanted to set the weight of my thoughts free
I'll have to forgive the ones that have harmed me
But I just can not forgive me
But I'm not alone no I'm not

Cuz you take my hand
To remind me im here
That im not invisible
Life's just a means to an end
You take my hand
And say all is forgotten
Share the weight of my problems
Cuz they won't change how you feel
When were hand in hand

I’m calling your name
Track Name: Gimme
Frozen out in space
She's far too beautiful
She wont notice me
My camoflauging soul

Hopeless telescope
Bring me closer to her lips
She'll be out of reach
And I cant wake her from her sleep

Gimme your hand
Gimme your heart
Gimme your love love love

Her gravitation pulls
At my aimless floating mind
If i could set a course
To keep her by my side
This cold would never feel so warm out here
In the stars we'll disappear

Gimme your hand
Gimme your heart
Gimme your love love love

If i could only let go
For just one night
I wish to be one with her soul
And hope to make this
Night live forever inside my head
So let's make a memory

Gimme your hand
Gimme your heart
Gimme your love love love
Track Name: Childish
Anger
Reds the color
Can't distinguish between friend or foe
Because i want something i can't afford

Fire
Quick to throw a fit
Making scenes like I'm dicaprio
But The greed makes me an animal

Danger
My claim to fame
I wear shoes to big for me to fill
But im bullet proof so shoot to kill

Ah
The world is at my feet
At the center you'll find me
Ah
Forget about the give and take
Cuz i will always want it all

Dont you know that
I cant hear a word you say
Im at the top of my lungs
I cant always get my way
But i want it i want it

Don't be dont be childish

Insane
But not to blame
I’m a victim of the gluttony
give me something new so i can feed

Ah
The world is at my feet
At the center you'll find me
Ah
Forget about the give and take
Cuz i will always want it all

Dont you know that
I cant hear a word you say
Im at the top of my lungs
I cant always get my way
But i want it i want it

Don't be dont be childish
Track Name: Retreat
To the man in the darkness
Who's hiding all of his darkest routines
Don't be afraid when the light covers your eyes
And we can see the truth
We see you
Ooo

I keep seeing life in different colors
But somehow I end up in the gray
Cuz I’m afraid to tackle all of the giants
That cast a shadow
Over me

I'm calling retreat
But I’m afraid to run away from my feet
I’m calling retreat
But courage keeps on coming over me

Think again think again think again stop
Running in circles scared gettin myself caught
Getting with the wrong crowd wrong time wrong sounds wrong Words wrong turns
Raw fish putrid
Get sick stupid
Nah man I'm miss calculated
The he said she said Mr exaggerated
I wanna run away but ill stand corrected

This man keeps talking in secrets
Keeps spitting truth against the wind on his cheeks
He’s saying light is a choice in this darkness
I am your enemy

I'm calling retreat
But I’m afraid to run away from my feet
I’m calling retreat
But courage keeps on coming over me

Retreat

to the man in the mirror
you’re not a failure til you choose to retreat
Track Name: Into the Light
Hands pressed high
Pushed through the sky
And you said your scared of dying alone
But theres no more pain or suffering
but I said I'm scared
that you died alone

Your two hands your two feet
Trying hard to
Reach the ground and
Hold on memories
Dont leave
Dont leave
The fear, it left, you’re right

Go go
Into the light

I always thought id get to say goodbye
But my words never reached your ears
And now that you are gone id love to tell you
That I love you
But my words will never reach your ears

Your two hands your two feet
Trying hard to
Reach the ground and
Hold on memories
Dont leave
Dont leave
The fear, it left, you’re right

Go go
Into the light
Go go
Into the light
Go go
Into the light into the light

Into the light
Into the light
Let it shine
Into the light
Into the light
let it shine
