Track Name: Empty Sound
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
Track Name: Little Worlds
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
Track Name: I Think I'm Changing
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
Track Name: Only In The Night
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
