Track Name: Speak
Keep me grounded as I get bold
Keep me young as I get older
Keep me strong as I get told
Keep me warm to a cold shoulder

Don't go down when I stay gold
Don't feel drawn to what they told ya
It's a peculiar fold
People try to live your life for ya

Speak to me inside
Where no one else can find
No one else can find

Speak to me inside
Where no one else can find, yeah

There ain't nothin' better than watching someone go
To the ends of the Earth to make sure they're not alone
There ain't nothin' better than giving all you got
To make sure you're not alone
Oh, I hope I'm not alone
Track Name: Speak (Interlude) [feat. Vinny Lane]
Sit with me
Talk with me
I'm callin' because
It's a mystery
All of me
Can't think for a second
Why you'd want every second
To be like that song by John Legend
I give you all of me

People find that impressive
I'm not impressed with
Why you need someone
Why you stress it
Sit, try to digest it
Get pensive
Then get digressive

I’d rather chase a million
And I don’t mean no big offense
Forget a white picket fence

But with you
I start to doubt
Feelin' like my heart is out
Superstar in my eyes
Roll the carpet out
Forget a large amount

My dreams seem like
Odds and ends
It’s just common sense
Our love is
Like Gods to them

It’s like I’m dreaming hard
Blind to your blinds
I’m seeing far
Checkin' my phone
Like the genius bar
Part of the decadence
I’ve checked the estimates
If this is love, where is the evidence?
Where is the
Track Name: Ever (Extended Version)
If it's okay then you'd be mine to keep
You keep your balance on your own two feet
I'd do to you the things you do to me
Do to you the things you do to me

Would you feel comfortable and vulnerable?
What could I give to you to keep you sold
On what I'm made of and what makes me bold?
'Cause I'm unstoppable, I'll never fold

I'll never fold x4

Would you be mine to keep?
What's the difference when it's hard to see
What I would do to you and you to me?
If I could hide it, then I'd never be

Would you ever be unkind to me
If I could hold you in my arms and breathe?
If we could just avoid the honesty
And live as if our love is verity

Fold x8
Track Name: Act II - And Misery Loves
"And that's why I say 'Love'
And that's why I have more of an understanding of everything"
Track Name: Remind
I try to remind you there's someone behind you x2

And your motives x2
Track Name: Wash Out (feat. Majesty Rose)
Open up your mind and let me crash into your innocence
I'm breaking through the surface, won't you recollect my diligence?
It's hard to trust a broken spell when all you knew was living in it
Breaking through the surface, pressure building up rebellions

Break me down, and crush my soul
I'll only let you play the role
Of interrupting tidal slave
Where I'm the sand, and you're the wave

Open up your mind and let me peer into your negligence
'Cause pinky promises don't hold the weight of what my heart can sense

My hands just feel so numb by all the begging that my heart won't break
'Cause I'm the calm and you're the shakes
Your love's like mountains, I'm the caves

Build me up and bless my soul
Oh, I won't let you play the role
Of iridescent tidal slave
Where you're the mountains, I'm the caves
Track Name: 2359
Breathing, longing
Wishing, wanting
Finding, haunting
Stirring, daunting

Let me fall asleep

Spinning, grinding
Trapping, binding
Twisting, winding
Sun, revive me

Let me fall asleep
Darkness empty
Track Name: Regain
If or if not, it's still worth a go
Buttons be pushed and maybe it shows
Try and recall, and maybe you'll know
Maybe you'll know, tell me you'll know

If you'll, if you'll regain

Meet you inside and hope you're all there
Greet you with eyes that show I still care
With a release that doesn't compare
Doesn't compare, it won't compare

Then I'll, then I'll
Then I'll, then I'll
Then I'll regain
Track Name: Hold Your Breath
Just a little bit longer

Everyone is daring me to go a little deeper
As the sea is getting bigger and the drop is getting steeper
I'm in over my head, the light is getting dim
And I'm hesitant to answer to the wealth of my whim

Just a little bit longer

Everyone is telling me
That in sheer futility
I can find my destiny
In another's vanity

Just a little bit longer
Track Name: Am I The One
Am I the one to be the shoulder
To rest your head on
To be the shoulder
Oh, what I would give
To hold your hand

Am I the one to see you smile
In my direction
To see you smile
Oh, what I would give
To hold your hand

Am I the one to know your every
Thought and secret
To know your every
Oh, what I would give
To hold your hand

Am I the one to be the shoulder
To rest your head on
To be the shoulder
Oh, what I would give
To hold your hand
Track Name: Act III - Sun and Stars
Wild Berry Sun, there's a world that's trying to reach you
With a hand that barely fits in its skin

Wild Berry Sun, I could never say I've seen you
Through the figments of a variable love

I guess sometimes, there is no saving
Only a fair amount of something held true

Wild Berry Sun, there's a hope I'd never find you
So I'd know that even shadows can dance
Track Name: After.
A chasm open, to anyone who notices
Imagine life worth living without a sense of meaning

Wherever I go, wherever I go
I hope that you'd take me home

Disregard the minutes between the meek and finished
Another soul diminished, maybe this is beginning
This feels like beginning

Wherever I go, wherever I go
I hope that you'd take me home

Wherever I go, wherever I go
I hope that you'd take me home

Wherever I go, whatever I hold
Whatever you want, whatever you know
Wherever I go, whatever I hold
Whatever you want, whatever you know
Wherever I go, whatever I hold
Whatever you want, whatever you know
Wherever I go, whatever I hold
Means nothing compared to what you know
Track Name: Forever After
Lay my head and go to sleep
Dream of places where we're falling
Imagination running deep
Maybe this is how you're calling

Dare the structure to replace the ground
With a slightly incandescent cloud
Decorations at the table
Is it love or is it something in between?

Here we are together, now
It's not exactly how I saw it
Hoping things could be more sound
Reality is never flawless

Count the times we've tried to wave the flag
Put the ashes in a paper bag
Tale be carried as a fable
Is it love or is it something in between?

Find the roots if it's unstable
Bear the fruit that is a staple
If I'm with you, then I'll be grateful
When it's love or even something in between
When it's love or even something in between
When it's love or even something in between
