Track Name: Plastic Islands
Little by little we fall from grace
The aftermath our faces gray
See all the world around us disappear
As little by little we fall from grace

Seems were spinning out
We’re losing all control
The wind is howling
Seas are rising to my door

Trying to control her is a losing game
Her face is in everything alive, decayed
Fear the unknown we’re so fragile
Counting time, counting time

Seems we’re spinning out
We’re losing all control
The wind is howling
Seas are rising to my door
But I have faith in love
There’s beauty all around us

Little by Little we fall from grace
The aftermath our faces gray
See all the world around us disappear
As little by little we fall from grace
Track Name: Cruel
Please don't wake me, I'm sleeping in
I tried to forget about everything
Hopelessly waiting, for many an hour
For a warm light to take the hurt away

Cruel to me, be cruel to me
I'll drown you out and set you free

Over and over, this churning wheel
Has me caught in your constant undertow
Oh it's lonely, in this terrain
And I'm tired of struggling

Cruel to me, be cruel to me
I'll drown you out and set you free

Please don't wake me, I'm sleeping in
I tried to forget about everything
Hopelessly waiting, for many an hour
For a warm light to take the hurt away

Cruel to me, be cruel to me
I'll drown you out and set you free
Track Name: Inside My Head
Wake up with the world heavy on my mind
And change is a spiral not a straight line
In a minute I'm on top of the world
In a minute I'll be falling apart

Inside of my head, Inside of my head

I see the world through the eyes of a child
Feel the mud feel the rain, the wind and the wild
I'd like my thoughts to be still
Though my nature is to keep on spinning the wheel

Inside of my head, Inside of my head

I know my heart won't lead me astray
Can't get my mind off what we carry and won't give away

Inside of my head, Inside of my head
Track Name: Ours By The Day
Daybreak shades of red, pink, blue
And I'm thinking of you and your compass tattoo
And your eyes smiling back at me in the light
Make me feel like everything's alright

And I feel like I'm walking on eggshells
And I feel like I'm walking on eggshells
They're breaking me

I find it hard to calm, the electricity's on
And we're high wired people
We're constantly thinking

But your presence it brings me back to the light
Make me feel like everything’s alright

Im grateful for the spark, that luminates me in the dark
And for the love, I feel in my heart
We drift on waves, of blue green and grey
Some gather some break, we take ours by the day

And I feel like I'm walking on eggshells
And I feel like I'm walking on eggshells
They're breaking me
Track Name: Kill Me Slow
Let me retreat to my shell
I’m vulnerable
The ropes are pulling at each end of my limbs
Tearing me apart

Mmm hideout

People hide behind the walls forcing smiles
(I’m) burning up inside
Don't reveal the demons that are speaking
It's not okay to feel

Mmm hideout

Don't let anyone bother me
Don't let anyone bother me

And it kills me, and it kills me slow
Track Name: In The Garden
Leaves fall like rain
Plant the seeds to grow a garden
And I'm at the altar
I will not fail, I will not falter

And all that I see
Turn to dark, turn to beauty
And all that I hear
Songs of hope, songs of the army

Truth is not
A blinding light
I am here
And the dark turns to light

The days we live so short
We will love and be loved
And one day we will lie
Beneath the earth, bone to dust

I am here
You are not alone
This shall pass
You are not alone
I am here
And the dark turns to light
Track Name: Let Me Down
United, yet divided
Like a rose and you are the thorn
We struggle through weakness
We ache like tired bones
I've bended but I won't break
Even when I'm thrown in the fire
Blame no one for mistakes I made
Thinking I could trust you

Cuz you let me down
Over and over
I'll stand my ground
Over and over
You let me down
Over and over
I'll stand my ground
Over and over agai

I know it gets easier
Stay the course and I'll find my own light
The leaves they'll return to
Colors I've seen once before
I'm done with retracing
All the memories of the storm
So I'll let up, I'll let go

Who said love defines you
Sometime love divides you
Who said love defines you

Ohh cuz you let me down
Over and over
I'll stand my ground
Over and over
You let me down
Over and over
You let me down
Over and over again
Track Name: Fall To My Knees
Fall on these hard times, haven't encountered them all
Oh these hard times, and I'm so afraid to fall
Oh when we falter and can't find our way
Its hard to remember, your loving embrace

And when I fall to my knees, will you be there to catch me
When darkness is all that I see, will you show me the way
And when I fall to my knees, I know you'll be there to catch me
I trust you with all of my soul, you're the one that I love

Do you remember, all the times that I cried
I must've felt my heart burst, a thousand times
Oh yes theres pain here, in this life
But theres a saving grace, in your guiding light

And when I fall to my knees, will you be there to catch me
When darkness is all that I see, will you show me the way
And when I fall to my knees, I know you'll be there to catch me
I trust you with all of my soul, you're the one that I love
Track Name: Turn To The Sun
After night, awaits the day
Sun outside, we're only miles away
From the source, of our lives
Join the tide, and ride it high

Oh the glory of the sun, shining down on everyone
It reminds me, live each day
For today, we're only miles away

And I feel everything will fall in place
And I feel everything will be ok

There are times, I've closed the door
Bowed my head, down towards the floor
Lost my money, lost my job
Sometimes we need, a shoulder to lean on

Oh the glory of the sun, shining down on everyone
It reminds me, live each day
For today, we're only miles away

And I feel everything will fall in place
And I feel everything will be ok
