Track Name: Fallen
I've fallen down
I've fallen down
The rabbit hole
Oh no
I've fallen down
The rabbit hole
Oh no
I've fallen in love
With the idea of you
With the end of time
With the ache without you
Oh no
I've fallen down
I've, I've, I've, I've
I've fallen down
The rabbit hole
I've fallen
In love, in love, in love
With the end of time
With the ache without you
Solitude therapy
Ocean lullabies
Just hold me
I've fallen
I've fallen
I've fallen
Track Name: Help Me
You came to me in a dream

I find it so hard
To believe you care
I know it's selfish
To want you to save me

I can't do it on my own
The darkness is too much
I can't do it on my own
I need a savior

Save me from me

Why do I try to talk to you
When I feel like you don't hear me
Why do I try to bond with you
When I feel like you don't care
Why am I opening up to you
When I feel like you don't care
Stop me if you've heard this before
Stop me if you've heard this before
But I need you to save me
And yes, it's selfish
You have your own problems
The world has its own problems
And those problems are so much bigger than me
But I can't pull myself out of my own
My hold on happiness is a joke
For half a year, I've felt worthless
I want to bounce back
I want to be me again
But I can't do this alone
I can't do this alone
Stop me if you've heard this before
Stop me if you've heard this before
Help me
Track Name: Masks and Liars
I've worn this mask for too long
I can't be bothered to fit in
I'm pretending to be someone
That I have never been

Lying, lying, lying

I'm letting go
Of my identity

I'm letting go of my identity
I'll become the real me
Watch and see
I'll become the real me
Just you watch and see

It's awakening for me and you
To know that I've been so wrong
I have to let it go
Pull the mask from my face

Is nothing out there true
Are we all factory made
We're designed to be liars
I fooled even myself

You're a fucking
Liar
Track Name: Destroyer
September was in my eyes
I'd say I didn't expect it to die
But that would be a lie
That path isn't gone
I'm just too proud to walk it
I guess that's where I fall short

Destroy
I'll burn all my bridges

I'm not singing about you anymore
That road is well worn
Rainy days have washed it away
I'm over it, yet the skies are still gray
I think it's about time I go
Wherever the wind does blow

I'll leave it all behind
I'll set my world on fire
I'll turn it upside down
I'll close my eyes to them
I'll shut my heart to me
I'll burn the last bridge
I'll end what's not begun
I'll destroy what I've made
I'll turn my back on you
I'll block my ears to all
I'll ignore what I want
I'll burn the last bridge
I'll break our bonds
I'll ignore your words
I'll set the hive on fire
I'll forge a new path
I'll make my own luck
I'll burn the last bridge

There's no returning home

I'll be the destroyer
Of everything I have been
I'm not running
I'm just changing the game
And the rules say
There's no room for you
It looks like it's time for goodbye
Track Name: The Last Song
I don't want to write any more lines
I don't want to sing any more phrases
I don't want to hold another instrument
I just want to let go

I want to fade
I want to disappear
To hold my breath
To stop

I am numb
Pumping music
In my veins
I don't want to write
Any more songs
I want to be free
I need to stop distracting myself
From what's really wrong with me
I can't be fixed by writing songs

Forget about it
Do it anyway
Make some more music
Create something
You know you want to
You want to be heard
You want everyone to know
What it is that you went through

The band fell apart
The girl left
I left
I sought love
In the wrong places
I created
To forget
Pain

I can't fix myself by running
I can't face the tide like this
I just want the music
To stop
