Track Name: Above Water
(LYRICS)
Someone oh someone wake me up
from this horrid nightmare you are nowhere to be found
And someone, someone fill my cup
Let’s forget out problems, tie and knot them to the ground

And my nightmares reoccuring,
as i just drift with the current

It’s getting harder to keep my head Above Water
but ill just sway along, yea ill just float along
its just so hard when even just the thought of her
puts chills through my bones, yeah my bones

And someone, oh someone take me away
from the people who don’t care, why should I care anyways?
When no one, no one seems to know what to say
Well what is wrong with the world that we are living in today?

when my ambitions used to flourish,
now i just drift with the current

It’s getting harder to keep my head Above Water
but ill just sway along, yea ill just float along
its just so hard when even just the thought of her
puts chills through my bones,
yeah my bones x2
yeah through my bones
Track Name: Ghost
"Where Have you been
I haven't seen you around
I'd hoped you were well
Hope it was love that you found
Cause I heard you're in hell
Your family as well
and you don't care an ounce
Wheres the person I know
Where did you go
I pray you don't become a GHOST
What was that you said
We would always be friends in the end
Well I tried for you I tried again and again
So where are you now
You just shut me out
And I can't pretend it wasn't worth it
I hope it was worth it
And you don't become a GHOST
Yeah

You disappeared
You're gone
Our time spent
Is lost
You reappear
At night
Haunting me
In my dreams
Like a GHOST"
Track Name: Letting Go
"Im a ticking time bomb waiting on some lost cause
dodging all the gunshots in between you fired at me
Waiting to explode and telling myself no, I don’t want to go
You’ve put on quite a show, you put on quite a show

It’s time to let it go,
my hearts sinking like a stone
and who would have known
you’d turn into a Ghost

Cause your a clever capture running from the rapture
tell me what your after, if it isn’t me
have you retired and expired?
Waiting to explode and telling myself no,
I don’t want to go, I don’t wanna
but you keep playing the main roll
for the show must carry on
you feel this way, yea your running away
and after all time has taken its toll
it’s dragging you behind and its burning on the inside

(Letting Go) x3
It’s time to let it go,
(Letting Go) x3
are you sure that you aren’t feeling alone?
(Letting Go) x3
and who would have known
you would turn into a Ghost

Yeah when it’s too hard to hang on we just let it go x2
Instead of reacting, covering, or masking
all of the feelings you hold deep inside
when it’s too hard to hang on, too hard to hang
when it’s too hard to hang on we just let it go"
Track Name: Dusty Road
"I've been walking down this road.
Nobody's told me where to go,
lost my soul to the dusty road. (say hey!)
Oh won't you lend me out a loan,
If you could just toss me a bone.
All these people seem to know is the lies they're shown.
Cause they'll try to throw you to the wolves
toss you to the ghouls, you know they would,
but I've gotta tell em every time that I'm doing fine. (Hey!)
Where does all the time go when you're spending time
away from home? Looking for a light that glows
on a dusty road. (say hey!)
Suddenly I come across a note , finally a shimmer of gold.
Yeah lets me know that I'm not alone.
Cause they'll try to throw you to the wolves
toss you to the ghouls, you know they would,
but I've gotta tell em every time that I'm doing fine.
Oh wanna play me like a fool I'll take you back to school,
you know I would. No more spinning on the spool
life isn't so cruel life is good, yeah.
So at the end of the road where do we go ?
And the end of the day what is left to say ?
Yeah I'm on my way, yeah I'm alright.
So at the end of the road let the light
that glows surely guide you home.
Yeah, milestone after milestone on a dusty road."
Track Name: Hiatus
"Its been a long time how ya been
It's been a long time are you wearing thin
It's been long time and God knows why
I haven't seen you since

It's been a long time and I can't take it all in
It's been creeping up and under my skin
Time's passed by and I can't hide
What I've been holding back is bursting within
So why put on a new disguise
Maybe it' another sign

If I could would I return to you
Start over fresh start over brand new
And If I could would I return to you

I don't know if I could
I don't know if I would
Maybe it's best that we take a Hiatus
Yet the question still remains

If I could would I return to you
Start over fresh start over brand new
And If I could would I return to you"
Track Name: Blue Season
Perception 2:
"The chains they break, re-awakening
an awkward fog of complacency
slowly moves in over you to take your will and devotion too
What do you say what do you do?
Will you go outside or stay in your room?
Well the others outside, they go running to hide

Just when the wind had caught your kite
you watched it soar and float on buy
I looked over, it caught my eye,
it was sinking down right next to mine
Why hide your face from the light
with all consideration aside
You have truly portrayed that you've slowly decayed"

Perception 1:
"You can't catch anyone outside during a Blue Season
and you can't quite ever tell when it's passing through
So you put yourself on standby and the true reason
is cause faking a smile is not something you wanna do"

Perception 1:
"Wasn't so easy when you're walking down the street and receiving the separation. Everything you wanted to be and you could've done it seemed. It wasn't so easy to sit back and watch the separation. I really never wanted to lift a hand, so it seems."

Perception 2:
"Looks like all that's left for me when the BLUE has covered everything; broken, scattered, tragedy. You know I need you to get through this and I need you to get through it. Oh, break me from this guillotine and show me who I'm supposed to be. Guide me through accordingly because ya know that.... I need to peruse this and I need YOU to get through it."

Perception 1:
"You can't catch anyone outside during a Blue Season
and you can't quite ever tell when it's passing through
So you put yourself on standby and the true reason
is cause faking a smile is not something you wanna do"
