Track Name: Good Enough?
Broken bones and shattered teeth.
Memories still haunting me, the past never changes.
Holding faith within my hands, all alone inside our heads.
Will this pain last forever?
Never being good enough is all we’ve ever known, all we’re ever told.
It’s the melancholy in our soul lost and alone, in a place so far from home.

Just a kid with nowhere to go, nowhere to run, no one to hold.
And it seems, no matter where we go this empty feeling will always be our home. Never being good is all we’ve ever known, it just goes to show that apologies are nothing more than empty words.

Never being good enough is all we’ve ever known, all we’re ever told.
It’s the melancholy in our soul lost and alone, in a place so far from home.
Broken bones and shattered teeth.
Memories still haunting me, the past never changes.

All alone again inside my head, melancholy haunting me.
This won’t last forever.

Never being good enough is all we’ve ever known, all we’re ever told.
It’s the melancholy in our soul lost and alone, in a place so far from home.
Broken bones and shattered teeth.
Memories still haunting me, the past never changes.
Holding faith within my hands, all alone inside our heads.
This won’t last forever.
Track Name: Wash Away
Bottle up the pain,
Let it rain and wash away.
Let it carry you to a better place,
Don’t forget my name.

My mind often wonders back
To the kids that we used to be.
What’s left?
Nothing but memories,
A shell of who you used to be.

Is this a consequence of never chasing dreams?
Slowly you’re sinking.
Locked in a cage, no way to breathe.

You bottle up the pain,
Did it have to be this way?
Let it rain and wash away,
I’m reaching out and its all for you.

Bottle up the pain,
Let it rain and wash away.
Let it carry you to a better place,
Don’t forget my name.

I’m wishing for a change that never came,
I'll rewrite the past so you will never be replaced.
And I know your hands were tied,
Your fate was set, put on your bravest smile.
Now do we have to look back?
I’m reaching out and its all for you.

I still remember,
I remember the night you called (it's all for you)
I felt the warmth in your voice,
You were happy, I was happy for you (it's all for you)

I've come to terms with letting go,
Had time to think things through.
Dear friend, I'll live this life for two,
And I'll sing this song for you.

(All for you) I'm reaching out and it's all for you
(All for you) I'm reaching out and it's all for you

Bottle up the pain,
Let it rain and wash away,
Let it carry you to a better place
Don’t forget my name.
Track Name: Wasted
Another day spent wasted, another year passed me by.
Listening to old sad songs to get me through the night.
Staring at the walls, wondering where I went wrong.
My last light just burned out and I’m left with the darkness again.

But still, I can’t seem to find importance in anything.
I’m still waiting for the day when I’ll fit into my own skin.
Now I’m even struggling to connect with my own friends.
Until I make a change, the weight I carry will just soak in.

I’m getting old, my life’s been wasted.
Another bottle to my mouth, the days aren’t changing.
I’m getting old, my life’s been wasted.
Another bottle to my mouth, it echoes and bleeds out.

I’m fed up of drowning in my own self-pity.
Tired, I’m useless, fragile and worthless.
Am I slowly drowning? I keep telling myself I am.
Am I slowly drowning? I keep telling myself I am.

Another day spent wasted, another year passed me by.
Listening to old sad songs to get me through the night.
Staring at the walls, wondering where I went wrong.
My last light just burned out, it’s just me in the darkness again.

It’s just me in the darkness again.

It echoes and bleeds out.
It surrounds me.
It echoes and bleeds out.
And holds me down.
It echoes and bleeds out.
It surrounds me.
It echoes and bleeds out.

I’m getting old, my life’s been wasted.
Another bottle to my mouth, the days aren’t changing.
I’m getting old, my life’s been wasted.
Another bottle to my mouth, it echoes and bleeds out.

It echoes and bleeds out.
Track Name: Forgive Me Pt.1
I look back on the years, can’t pretend to forget.
A picture, lost progress, I wonder how you’ve been.
Your laugh and your smile, while I'm losing sleep lost inside my head.

Tell me you’re passed this, it’s over and you’ve moved on.
‘Cause I can’t explain why the past few years were meaningless.
Forgive me, I did everything that I could.
Forgive me, I wish you saw it from where I stood.

I’ve read over the words that you left in my head,
A look on your face I could never forget.
I know it's been a while, I still live in denial.
Nowhere to be found when you needed a friend,
Couldn’t handle the pressure, I started to cave in.
So I told myself that you were fine.

Tell me you’re passed this, it’s over and you’ve moved on.
‘Cause I can’t explain why the past few years were meaningless.
Forgive me, I did everything that I could.
Forgive me, I wish you saw it from where I stood.

I’ve read over the words that you left inside my head.
And I stayed up all night trying to ease the pain, but nothing changes.

I punish myself and fall into a wretched whim.
The guilt that burns inside my chest, the memories they freeze within.
These empty picture frames, (I couldn’t ask for your forgiveness.)
Torturing these cold and lonely nights. (I couldn’t ever apologize.)
I can’t escape. (How could I ask for your forgiveness?)
I suffocate from outside in. (How could I ever apologize?)
I punish myself.

I called for help, they took you away.
Forgive me, please forgive me.
I punish myself with each passing day.
Let the tears fall from your eyes as you fade away.
Track Name: Dear Mother
Dear mother, things are changing.
Are you beginning to lose hope?
Approaching for so long, how will we stay afloat?
I've been holding on to my breath,
But I'm starting to cave in.
And you're starting to realize,
That we're sick, that we're broken.
We both act tough, but were so soft spoken.
You thought we were stronger than you.
I hope you know I could never, I could never blame you.

But all my life have I been taught to run away?
To block out the pain.

We don't have to fade away.
Block out the pain.

With anything, with everything.
With all the pills you were swallowing.
The endless times you'd drive away,
Just hoping you'd forget the pain.
But the same blood runs through my veins.
But the same blood runs through my veins.

But the same blood runs through my veins.
And now I know, we don't have to fade away.
Track Name: Free
Blue sky, black road only three days left to go.
False circumstance falls from my head, leads me to this place.
No sleep tonight, another eighteen hour drive.
But luckily it’s not just me, hopeful kids we’re young and free.

Ignite the flame and hold on for dear life.
Wielding the torch of the dream burning bright,
With such a long road to get there.

Blue sky, black road only two days left to go.
Beneath the stars, beside the sea, friends next to me.
Sky high cliff jumps, I think it’s time to get fucked up.
The things we do just to feel alive.

So we will sing, ‘til we’re the last ones standing.
So we will sing, ‘til we’re the last ones singing.
So we will sing, ‘til we’re the last ones breathing.
So we will sing, No regrets will fucking reach me.

Blue sky, black road only one day left to go.
The tide is calling, im still free falling.
When I am old, fragile, worn and beaten,
No regrets will fucking reach me.

Worthwhile memories, we remain the young and free.
We’re young and free.
