Track Name: End of the F***ing World
Dearest, I've lied to you today.
In fact, I've lied to you every day for an unforgivable amount of time.
I've told you things that have made you change your views, change your plans but most of all change yourself.
It's changed how you feel, how you see the world, how you see your own reflection.
I hope it's not too late but please accept this as an apology for all those years.
Things used to be so different between you & I. I'm not quite sure what changed. Was there a catalyst? Did there even need to be one?
Maybe it's just in our blood to feel this way about each other.
I mean, I've heard what you say about me. To your friends & family.
But I get it. I'm not the easiest to live with, you aren't either.
I guess all I'm asking for is forgiveness. We've got such a long way to go.
I know this but through all the dirt & heartbreak, I'd like to think I've helped make you who you are.
I just hope we make it out alive.
Track Name: Chapters
Scars for eyes, when did you become so fucking blind?
Just let me know when it's time to pick my broken bones back up.

As I look back, all I see are faces that remind me of who I used to be.
I'll take my time, retrace my steps & I'll rewrite these chapters.

Scars for eyes, when did you become so fucking kind?
How much longer can we fight? Cause I don't think I can keep up.

As I look back, all I see are faces that remind me of who I used to be.
I'll take my time, retrace my steps & I'll rewrite these chapters.

Can we move forward if there's nothing left to write?
Can we burn these pages & throw the ashes to the sky?
Cause I'm done reading & if there's nothing left to say then girl, goodnight.
Track Name: No Longer Human
I sit up high upon the hilltops holding hands with death.
I'm playing make-believe with the time that I have left.
Cause I haven't felt so far for a long time & what I'd give to fall right back into your heart.

I could be better, I could try harder than I've ever tried before.
I could just face it, I could replace these thoughts with something I want more.

How would you feel if your world ended tomorrow?

There's so much bloodshed on the skyline. Paint the whole town red.
I'm playing reruns in my head that don't make sense.
Cause you've made me feel so high for the first time & what I'd give to fall right back into your arms.

I could be better, I could try harder than I've ever tried before.
I could just face it, I could replace these thoughts with something I want more.

How would you feel if your world ended tomorrow?

So now that it's over I'll say goodbye.
We always knew it would be our time.
Cause I don't know if you can hear me?
Track Name: Back To Life
I don't wanna waste time talking about all the days you were stronger than me. I fail to see the sense in all of that.
It's almost like you want this, it's almost like you need it to survive.
To beat me down & bring me back to life.

The vultures came & stripped you of your throne.
You shouldn't throw stones when you haven't even made this place your home.
You didn't need to take my hand & throw me to the wolves.

You know it gets so complicated.
The whole damn thing leaves me frustrated.

Don't leave me here with no air to breathe.
I'll carry all this weight if you say you'll be awake.
The morning will come if the night feels safe.
Forever fears me.

All my fears have spread out on the floor.
Breaking my bones just to make you feel like you're worth so much more.
Don't you see this held us back?
I can't get through to you.

You know it gets so complicated.
The whole damn thing leaves me frustrated.

Don't leave me here with no air to breathe.
I'll carry all this weight if you say you'll be awake.
The morning will come if the night feels safe.
Forever fears me.

& I just can't bear to let you down.
After all that we've been through you can't hate me.
You can call me worthless if you like.
I won't say I'm sorry.

Don't leave me here with no air to breathe.
I'll carry all this weight if you say you'll be awake.
The morning will come if the night feels safe.
Forever fears me.

I don't wanna waste time talking about all the days you were stronger than me.
Forever fears me.
It's almost like you want this, it's almost like you need it to survive.
Forever fears me.
Track Name: Your Name
I'm so sick of keeping quiet when you're just a day away.
If I close my eyes do you think the hands of time would let me stay within these memories, built from nothing, inside our dreams?

Do you still remember me?
Try calling out my name?

Promise me that I can live forever.
I am not a memory.
Cause I can't see a way out of this one.

There's no time just break the silence. I can't let you fade away into the night. Dragging all my friends into this fight. Because you & I die today. At least I'll see you outside the gates.

Do you still remember me?
Try calling out my name?

Promise me that I can live forever.
I am not a memory.
Cause I can't see a way out of this one.

I didn't mean to hurt you, I just wanted to say goodbye.
(It goes over & over & over again)

Swear to me you'll make it back.
(It goes over & over & over again)
Track Name: If I Close My Eyes
I keep falling back to old familiar ways.
I've checked this map a thousand times, I'm still lost inside my mind.
& my heart keeps holding onto yesterdays, no matter how hard I try, I never seem to climb.

So let's fade away. Hiding in the shadow of the night where no one dares to look. Are you sure that you're smiling?

Nobody hears the cries that we hear from the waves.

If I close my eyes will the sun come up in the morning?
Will the light arise & light up all the corners of your face?

Time keeps rolling & I keep counting down the days.
I've lived that life a thousand times, we're still kids inside my mind.
& my heart keeps holding onto things we said.
Swimming in the thoughts of forgotten summer nights.

So let's fade away. Hiding in the shadow of the night where no one dares to look. Are you sure that you're smiling?

Nobody hears the cries that we hear from the waves.

If I close my eyes will the sun come up in the morning?
Will the light arise & light up all the corners of your face?
Track Name: Anchor
I need to know if you got my message?
Cause I've been lost here for days.

I keep waiting for a miracle to bring me back home.

No matter how hard I try, the sound of the deep keeps calling.
The Siren's song chills my spine & without you I'm drowning.

The shipwreck on the shore reminds me I'm broken.
The storm inside eats away.

I keep waiting for a miracle to bring me back home.

No matter how hard I try, the sound of the deep keeps calling.
The Siren's song chills my spine & without you I'm drowning.
Track Name: Ocean Waves
My limbs are shaking cold, despite the warmth within my bones.
I'm much deeper than before. Once we're done can we go home?

Cause I've seen this all before & I've watched the feelings fade.

If I chose to sleep at the bottom of the sea, could I count on you to hold my breath?

I drift off into the deep with all my fear tied to my feet.
Distorted shapes & sounds. If I don't call can I be found?

Cause I've seen this all unfold & and I've watched the darkness fade.

If I chose to sleep at the bottom of the sea, could I count on you to hold my breath?
Track Name: Red Tides & Skylines
When the red tide meets the horizon it's a sign that I shouldn't dive in.
Cause the water still calls my name & it begs me to sleep.

But I know it feels like I'm holding onto nothing but it feels so real to me.

So give me your wings so I can fly all of the way across the skylines.

I can barely catch my breath cause it feels there's nothing left & you've got both feet on my chest & the sea has it's grip around my neck.

But I know it feels like I'm dreaming all for nothing but it feels so real to me.

So give me your wings so I can fly all of the way across the skylines.

I can barely catch my breath cause it feels there's nothing left, there's nothing left.

So give me your wings so I can fly all of the way across the skylines.
(& I wish that you still sang melodies to help me sleep)
Track Name: Monolith
Watch the day break. Wake up it's starting.
The silence is deafening & there's fear inside their eyes.
In the distance there's thunder & lightning.
The light touches everything & makes the darkness fall apart.

Cause you know, no matter what they say.
You & I could have ended it differently.

Stay with me cause I don't feel like I'm ready to die yet.
Just hold me close. Don't ever feel like I'm letting you go.

Watch the blood flow through the cracks in your armour.
You're spineless & withering, when the fuck did it all go wrong.
Pace in circles across the horizon.
The silence meant everything once they'd picked & pulled apart.

Cause you know, no matter what they say.
You & I could have ended it differently.

Stay with me cause I don't feel like I'm ready to die yet.
Just hold me close. Don't ever feel like I'm letting you go.

Stripped to the bone. Take what you want from me.
Look what we've done. Bringing our knees to the ground.
Darken their eyes. Ending the suffering.
Feeding them lies. Bringing their knees to the ground.

Stay with me cause I don't feel like I'm ready to die yet.
Just hold me close. Don't ever feel like I'm letting you go.
Track Name: Ocean Waves - Pt II
As I catch my breath I start to think:
These ocean waves have held me down for so long.
Should I give up & let it sink?
For all my thoughts can't keep me up when all my memories weigh me down closer to the bottom of the sea.

I see sun on the surface & it reminds me of when I could breathe.
Like the God's have cursed me to drown on my own, breaking down.
Pray for me.

I've gone too deep, I've lost my mind.
Call off the search, there's not much left of me to find.
A hollow shell of my former self drifting down to the warmths of hell.
& I'm feeling so much colder than I thought I ever could.
& I'm feeling so much further from you.

I see sun on the surface & it reminds me of when I could breathe.
Like the God's have cursed me to drown on my own, breaking down.
Pray for me.
Track Name: Our Last Dance
We both sat by the edge of the world, sharing drinks with the depths by our feet.
We didn't know how far we'd fall or miss our chance for our last dance.

Say goodbye to everything you've ever held for granted.
Cause I don't wanna be the one to make you fold your hand.

Just take it back, you don't really mean it.
You can take it back.

We both sat by the edge of the world, sharing drinks with the depths by our feet.
We didn't know how far we'd fall or miss our chance for our last dance.

Here we are standing in the wake of all our answers & as the heavens opened up you made me hold your hand.

Just take it back, you don't really mean it.
You can take it back.

We both sat by the edge of the world, sharing drinks with the depths by our feet.
We didn't know how far we'd fall or miss our chance for our last dance.

Hold on to me.
