Track Name: Cold Rain
When it's light, we glow
When it's dark, we don't see our two faces
Are we better off blind?
Are you even mine?
Let's close our eyes, and imagine that everything is oh, so perfectly fine

What have we done?
Are we just a tragedy?
You said this would last forever and now you've taken a part of me
You kicked me while i was down
We'll go down, slowly drown

Why does my kindness drive everyone away?
Always have too much to say
And i know that i fooled you with the smile on my face, i'm not okay
Just let the water pour into my lungs, i've given up
The only way to fix my mistakes is to self-destruct

What have we done?
Are we just a tragedy?
You said this would last forever and now you've taken a part of me
You kicked me while i was down
We'll go down, slowly drown

We'll go down, slowly drown
Track Name: Nothing to Lose
Buried underneath, what we don't want to see
What do we do when we have nothing to turn to?
There's many things I think, they stay inside my brain
How much longer can I sink before I hit the bottom?

I'm your anchor, I'll just hang here
I'm just a stranger
Countdown hits zero, you turn your head away
You just let me go

Losing breath is so beautiful when you have nothing to lose
Learned to walk, now can only crawl
So, I'll just enjoy the view

I'm afraid to speak, so cut my tongue and clip my wings
So I won't say a thing, my good intentions always fall through
Sometimes I think I'll break, always questioning my strength
How much longer can I think before I come undone?

I'm your anchor, I'll just hang here
I'm just a stranger
Countdown hits zero, you turn your head away
You just let me go

Losing breath is so beautiful when you have nothing to lose
Learned to walk, now can only crawl
So, I'll just enjoy the view

What do we do when we have nothing to turn to?
I'm your anchor, I'll just hang here
Track Name: Acceptance
I won't submit to the negative feelings in my head
If I fall, I gotta get back up
I've lost myself too many times and honestly, I've had enough
Yeah, I'm not perfect but I'm worth it, I know it and you don't even have to tell me twice

And I don't need advice on how to live my life

We don't know where we go when we die, you and I
Let's stay close, even when we don't see eye to eye
We'll try to fight off the dark, we'll try to stay in the light

And I'm just waiting for the sun to come up
Another night to be over, another battle won
But I won't win the war
So tell me, what am I fighting for?
There must be something more

We don't know where we go when we die, you and I
Let's stay close, even when we don't see eye to eye
We'll try to fight off the dark, we'll try to stay in the light

Tell me, is the what I've wanted all along?
I just want to know if I really belong

We don't know where we go when we die, you and I
Let's stay close, even when we don't see eye to eye
We'll try to fight off the dark, we'll try to stay in the light
Track Name: Through Valleys
In present time, I feel alive
Fighting my own demons left and right
Won't be victim to my own head
Trying to conquer my fear of the night

I knew I needed some sort of change
Climbing my way out, from the bottom
You stood by, through thick and through thin
Turning my frown into a grin

I owe it to you all, so thank you
Suicidal, scared, no longer
The stars shine so much brighter now
Finally made my way through the clouds

Now, I'm not one to cry for help
Usually keeping to myself
Now, I know I've fought my way through hell
No more tearing myself apart
