Track Name: Sleeping
I can't stop slipping up and making mistakes
Over and over, it's the same thing, each day

It's like there's something crawling under my skin.
It's like there's something crawling under my skin.

And I can't sleep at night
My thoughts alone keep my wide eyed
Now I can't sleep at night

I can't put up against this fight
I'm sleeping with my eyes open
I can't put up against this fight
I'm sleeping with my eyes open

Until I learn to let up and let go
Until I learn to let up and let go
This will continue to haunt me
This will continue to haunt me

I can't put up against this fight
I'm sleeping with my eyes open
I can't put up against this fight
I'm sleeping with my eyes open

And if living a lie makes you feel alive
Then send me straight to hell

When will I learn let up?
When will I learn to let go?
Track Name: Dying Light
I used to be so courageous
Not a care in the world,
I never cared what they said
But little by little
They chipped away
They stole a part of me
Word by word
I felt them all
Stripping me clean
(But now I’m singing)

Renew the fire, rekindle the flames

When did the fire leave my eyes?
I used to be so full of life

But who could blame me?
When I was just a kid
I never knew what growing up meant
Not a care in the world,
I never cared what they said
But little by little
They chipped away
They stole a part of me
Word by word
I felt them all
Stripping me clean

Dying light
With nowhere to shine
I’m a dying light

When did the fire leave my eyes?
I used to be so full of life

Renew the fire, rekindle the flames

And I will not be contained

I'll never be the same
Track Name: Bad Habit
I wasted too much time
Caring about what you and your friends would say
I swept away in their thoughts and their beliefs
I got carried away
I got carried away

Now I've made some mistakes
And I'm okay with that
I'm turning things around for the better

Hook, line, sinker you caught me
And made me your prisoner
Since when did I care about
Your half-priced wisdom?

I've got a bad habit
Of keeping you around
But I'm letting you go
You don't control me

You don't control me
You never could
You never would
You don't control me

You never could again
Track Name: Could've, Would've
I must be the only one in this place who's not blind
Cause you don't want to talk to me
I get it and that's just fine

But what I can't take
Is when you fake it
When you smile but your mind is vacant

And what I can't stand
Is when you fake it
When you smile but your mind is vacant

Oh, God, Save me
This can't be the only way
Oh, God, Save me
This can't be the only way out

I said I'd come back
But I never had the guts
And I said I loved you
But I never had the guts

I could've, I would've
But I never had the guts
I could've, I would've
I never had the guts

I could've and I would've
But I never had the guts
I could've and I would've
But I never had the guts

Can the past outweigh the present?
Or can the present outweigh the past?
You know, I never had the guts to ask
I never had the guts

I never had the guts
I never had the guts
Track Name: Underground
I cant find my way out
From this hole I've dug myself
I always heard it was easier
Living in solitude, underground

And I find it hard to breathe
When your arms aren't wrapped around me
'Cause I feel so close and yet so fucking far away
Living in solitude, underground

'Cause I've been there, I've been there
I'm still there, I'm still there
I'm still here, I'm still here
And I'm not going anywhere
I'm over and out

I think I'll stay here at home
'Cause I'm better off on my own
I think I'll stay here at home
'Cause I'm better off on my own

On my own.
Track Name: Helpless
You say I'm damned if I fight
Damned if I don't
That this could finally be the end of my rope
Well, if it's true, what you say
I think I'd rather find out the hard way

Refuse, refuse
I refuse to live like this
Helpless

Thinking and thinking every single day
Can I break the cycle? 'Cause the cycle is breaking me

Yeah, I refuse to live my life in a cage
Shackled down by built up hatred and rage
Still at 2am, I ask myself: Am I really as strong as I claim to be?

What if I fake it, will I make it or will I sink or swim?
Cause when I think out aloud, I always sounds so grim
But when I bottle this up, I overflow from the brim
I can't see straight, it's getting dim

My mind is a loaded gun
There's a bullet in the barrel that I can't outrun
I'm not as strong as I claim to be
If I'm being honest, I'm barely hanging on

Can I break the cycle? 'Cause the cycle is breaking me
