Empty Sound 02:18
Empty Sound   Am I floating around like an echo?  Like an empty sound? How can I be myself? I try Maybe, yeah, I was lost from the get go  And I won’t be found But I won’t let go Tie myself in knots but I can’t think about it Shrugging off the thoughts like falling rain Tell me what you want, cause I can’t live without it I’m lost in the sound, I’m lost in the sound Breathing sticks and starts to slow Little thoughts they grow ‘Til they’re all I know I still feel it Even when we turn it up When the day is done And we sing of love I still feel it And the spark that you had is a dull glow But it won’t go out Don’t know what that’s about, I try And I know that it’s hard not to let go When you get knocked down But you’re not alone Tie myself in knots but I can’t think about it Shrugging off the thoughts like falling rain Tell me what you want, cause I can’t live without it I’m lost in the sound, I’m lost in the sound Breathing sticks and starts to slow Little thoughts they grow ‘Til they’re all I know I still feel it Even when we turn it up When the day is done And we sing of love I still feel it Even when you’re looking up When the day is done And the skies above won’t reveal it Leaving everything you know Have you lost control? Well you’re not alone I still feel it

Little Worlds   Reach into your head some time Never seem to recognize the faces staring back at me All the little worlds you find Seeing how they orbit round your frame, I can see Push me till I break Know I’m not mistaken Just ignore the weight Edge a little closer Try escape my fate Change my destination See another way No, it’s never over Wish I could rely on what I think Try to greet the night without a weapon Need to learn to die to be alive Still I take my time to learn the lesson Still second guessing I can feel my arms are weak Lifting up a world of empty stages, heard them calling me All the little things you keep Every one, a cord run down your cheeks, tie you down

I Think I'm Changing I hear my breathing Eyes shut but wide awake I thought this game was near it’s end I’ve gone and hit the glass again I long for dreaming I weave a figure eight I've walked this road, I know it well But something’s off and I can tell If I could go back change anything, I don’t know who I’d be  I know shouldn’t get stuck, think what could have been  I try living here now, see what I can see But I’m going down I know that I’m changing, but it’s not fast enough Even with my failings, I thought I’d make it out now This time’s no different I’d like to think it is So tell me what I really see The same small world on top of me

Only In The Night   What can I say? I’m out amongst the waves Out of the way But something pulls me on, uneasy Bending at the thought I’m missing the substance Built out of sand and hay Give me something more I need an adjustment Now as I fade away How could you be coming undone? Is it enough?  Been given everything Keep your careful head to yourself Don’t let it out Be who you ought to be Hanging around It’s all of me for now Under the ground They say I’m getting out so easy Bending at the thought I’m missing the substance Built out of sand and hay Give me something more I need an adjustment Now as I fade away How could you be coming undone? Is it enough?  Been given everything Keep your careful head to yourself Don’t let it out Be who you ought to be There’s a light alone and it’s dwindling Will it be snuffed out? You and I is all I can really see
