Take it slow I’m wondering Where we go from here Yell until we settle down What’s the question dear So let me go away Let me go So let me go away Let me go Let this be ok
2.
Satisfied 03:37
Come closer Milk the static Look me in the eye Skip the chaser Wreaking havoc Until we’re satisfied Kiss the corner Rip the page and run Cut the cord cause We’re above the gun Oh False defenses Pixelated Tall and dignified You know better And you’ve waited Duck and open wide Are you satisfied Are you satisfied Are you satisfied
3.
A New Way 02:10
Come close We’ll ride the high Painting peace signs in the sky Too far to wonder why We don’t look down Keep moving Roll the motion Break your heart keep it open Where we go there’s no knowing Don’t look down All love Unafraid All people Celebrate We’ve come here to say We found a new way We never give in We never give it up We never give in We never give it up (We found a new way) We never give in We never give it up We never give in We never give it up (We found a new way) Run circles round the cars Someday we’ll get to mars Remember who we are And where we started Keep living for tomorrow Find something to be a part of Just our fears follow All love Unafraid All people Celebrate We’ve come here to say We found a new way We never give in We never give it up We never give in We never give it (We found a new way) We never give in We never give it up We never give in We never give it up (We found a new way)

Come Down 03:47
Come down I’m calling Into the wind Turn down The static Let go My friend I won’t let you fall I won’t let you fall I won’t let you fall Come down I’m calling For you
5.
Arms 02:34
I’ve been running forever Trying not to get caught Hold it together But you pulled it apart How do you know what i need Cause I’m sure i never told you I don’t know what i believe But i believe it when i hold you Pull me into your arms Hold me til the night becomes the day And all the stars above Go dark and fade away We all need someone to love Everybody needs someone I don’t wanna know what it feels like To go back to love before You came in through the window Now you’re breaking down the door Pull me into your arms Hold me til the night becomes the day And all the stars above Go dark and fade away Pull me into your arms We all need someone to love Everybody needs someone Everybody needs some to love Everybody needs someone

Pack it and load it Kiss it then float it Embers growing cold Demons are at bay Rose-colored bouquet Even I was sold Break in the bloodstream Living in daydream Call it ignorant Stand on my shoulder I’m getting closer Just haven’t found it yet But I’m far enough away to forget I’m never going back again (I won't look behind me anymore) (I won't look behind me anymore) I'm stuck in a daydream (I won't look behind me anymore) (I won't look behind me anymore) I’m never going back again

Human 03:06
Isn’t where you thought you’d be, but it Doesn’t matter now Didn’t hear the warning bells Now you don’t know how To try not to believe that it’s an ending Tell yourself the road will reappear That every time we fall, we get back up again We’re human, broken, we’re holding on Wake up to the aftertaste All you can’t undo When there’s no going back The only way is through So try not to believe that it’s an ending Tell yourself the road will reappear That every time we fall, we get back up again We’re human, broken, we’re holding on Breakable, beautiful slipping into your flawed design (you) don’t wait for the world to show you another sign To try not to believe that it’s an ending Tell yourself the road will reappear That every time we fall, we get back up again We’re human, broken, we’re holding on Where do we go from here

Walls Down 03:27
A little blood in the mirror Another shot in the dark Don’t you know you can’t hear An emotionless heart Dead pan perfection Eyes that never tell Make 'em feel like they’re special Then put em through hell You’d rather run than be Free of apology You’d rather run than be free You think no one can catch you You think you can’t be found You think that they’ll forget you That you’re invisible Inside you’re breaking and there’s no way out I’ll bring your walls down Wild fire in the desert With the wind in your hair You can't stay here forever You’re running out of air You’d rather run than be Free of apology You’d rather run than be free You think no one can catch you You think you can’t be found You think that they’ll forget you That you’re invisible Inside you’re breaking and there’s no way out I’ll bring your walls down Oooh I know you want to Ooh (I know you want to) Save you, save you I know you want to You think no one can catch you You think you can’t be found You think that they’ll forget you That you’re invisible Inside you’re breaking and there’s no way out I’ll bring your walls down

Animal 03:14
Honestly I’m sick and tired of waking up And trying to prove my name Part of me just wants to fill my coffee cup Step out the door and aim At the dotted line Do I have your attention now Good is not exceptional Learn to be more flexible sure Also learn to say no But never miss an open door "Life is like a candy store If you know what you want” Do I have your attention now Everything is free Except the animal in me Everything is free Except the animal in me Everything is free Except the animal in me Look out what you wear is what you are But you can't care too much Tie my hands together take the key a couple inches out of reach When I calm down I can go Do I have your attention Do I have your attention Have I already mentioned That I'm stuck in suspension Everything is free Except the animal in me Everything is free Except the animal in me Everything is free Except the animal in me (Let me go or watch me parish) (Let me go or watch me parish) (Let me go or watch me parish) (Let me go or watch me parish)

I'm alright - that’s what she said Got these voices in my head And they keep company Functional insanity Governor is on the phone cover up shut up stay home Pour one out, ease the pain, Shooting Lysol in our veins Tell me Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Talking to the window What you are is what you eat Check your phone religiously But careful cause it causes cancer Everybody’s got the answer Except for me And maybe him Tell me Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Guess I’m doing fine though Virtual reality Maybe this is good for me Everything is temporary Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Tell me Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Where did all my friends go Talking to the window

Trying 04:03
Wait for something to go wrong Been too good too long The calm before the storm Weight i feel it hanging on Like a siren song From all the loves before But i’m sleeping in a shirt that smells like you My dreams are soaked in your perfume I don’t know how to hold you I just know how to run I don’t know how to hold you But I’m trying You said you’d never lose your faith I keep tryna walk away Even though i know i’m safe I was living in a shade of the darkest blue But i’ll try to leave the light on I don’t know how to hold you I just know how to run I don’t know how to hold you But I’m trying I don’t know how to hold you I just know how to run I don’t know how to hold you But I’m trying

Love Myself 03:23
Sometimes bitter Sometimes bruised Secretly always confused I'd rather be told than choose Is that okay? I don’t eat to get control And I don’t easily let go I spin down a rabbit hole Every couple days You already know that But you don’t care And even though I know you're scared You just hold me Until i can breathe again I wish that i could love myself Something like the way you love me I wish that i could love myself Something like the way you love me Saturdays without a plan Casually reach for your hand Things I didn’t understand Until you showed me That I'm patient And I'm kind And I am not defined By my exes and my crosses and the stories in my mind I wish that i could love myself something like the way you love me (I wish I could love me like you love me) I wish that I could love myself something like the way you love me I wish that I could love myself something like the way you love me I wish that I could love myself something like the way you love me

Sleepless nights after and before you Lost and found wrestling to hold you Won’t you stay another minute Hotel halls, numbers on the door Sharing walls with strangers And I wrote it so I won’t forget I wish that you could see the view The more I miss you the more I’m sure I know That love gets stronger and the longer you let it go And I’m doing time in my prison mind I’m in the dark I’m terrified The more I know you Oh the more I know you
