Track Name: Growing a Garden
Growing a garden from nothing
There’s patches which won’t come to life
Watch the sun move and turn away
Reflections making puddles deeper

A butterfly colony of people
Twisting and bursting at the seams
Of concrete pavements and dreams
Let’s just watch them fly away

I’m living in this house
But it doesn’t feel like home
Home
Home
Home

I’m living in the moment
I’m living for now
And if you can’t take it
Oh well

Time flies
And goodbyes
Are never easy
You had your chance
But I wasn’t good enough

I’m growing a garden
Growing
I’m growing a garden
I’m growing a garden now
Track Name: Dreamer
I’m sorry, sir
I thought you were
Trying to stir, something
I forgot there’s kindness in strangers
And love in human nature

I’m sorry, you see
I’ve seen too much
To believe that we
Are capable of good things
That I’m losing faith in

But hope will hide
Where faith resides
My home is so far
We will live
As we take and give
If only we were kinder

I will change
I will build myself
I’ll live in my mind
Where it’s better
Pain only proves I’m human

If someone gave me
The time to save me
I’ve heard of miracles
And I’m sick of being brave

But hope will hide
Where faith resides
My home is so far
We will live
As we take and give
If only we were kinder

I will change
I will build myself
I’ll live in my mind
Where it’s better
Pain only proves I’m human

You meant so much
It wasn’t a turning point
It wasn’t a learning curve
Just loss
Track Name: World Escape
I’m halfway around the world
New York, Paris, maybe Tokyo
My hometown looked at me, and said, “just go”
“If you never leave, you will never know”

The city lights, the magic of the night
And the people living their day to day lives
Lanterns scraping the sea-line of every coast
But the warmth of home is what I’ll miss the most
I’ll venture out, and see the world ablaze
With its adventures and caverns agape
In the bowels of civilisation
I’ll run away, it’s a world escape

I look outside and that’s where my heart lies
Mapped out on my coffee table, ready to take flight
Plunging headfirst at the age of eighteen
This is the most alive I’ve ever been

The city lights, the magic of the night
And the people living their day to day lives
Lanterns scraping the sea-line of every coast
But the warmth of home is what I’ll miss the most
I’ll venture out, and see the world ablaze
With its adventures and caverns agape
In the bowels of civilisation
I’ll run away, it’s a world escape

I’m over the world, in a silver machine
I’m over the world, in a silver machine
Track Name: Like A Stranger
We both know I never made you happy
As if I could make anyone
Maybe we should face it
I was just convenient

So I’ll treat you like a stranger
So I can see your love
I’ll remember the remainder
Of our days as a flood
You’re a memory kept alive
While I was always forgotten in your mind
It’s a sign
I was never meant to be loved

I hope you find what you couldn’t in me
And I will carry on
Loving someone
Even if they slip through my fingers
Time and time again

So I’ll treat you like a stranger
So I can see your love
I’ll remember the remainder
Of our days as a flood
You’re a memory kept alive
While I was always forgotten in your mind
It’s a sign
I was never meant to be loved
Track Name: Captivating
You’ve captured, you’ve conquered me
Like a captain, out of depth and out at sea
I was closed off, cut off, buried deep and not ready for society

And I’m hopeless, lost and drowned in a sinking boat
But you calm me, you’re gentle waters so I stay afloat
I’ve never felt so overwhelmed, protected and this cared for

Your touch, your lips, your fingertips, I’m lingering on your last kiss
Your eyes, your smile, your skin, within, don’t want to let go of this
Your ways, your words, your everything, you are so captivating

And I am happy, I am fine, electrified with just one look
Are you content, will you be mine? Verified and not mistook
Come on, we’re already this far

Your touch, your lips, your fingertips, you’re lingering on my last kiss
Your eyes, your smile, your skin within, don’t want to let go of this
Your ways, your words, your everything, you are so captivating

Captivating in your quiet composure
Will you keep me close in my exposure
Not afar or world’s apart
Not in your arms, but in your heart
Not in your arms, but in your heart
Track Name: The Elephant Man
They say he’s grotesque, lifeless
His existence a miracle
It’s getting harder to just to walk

Inside his head is a cage
Too much for no outlet
Stars in his eyes but no rocket

Well I believe that he was beautiful

Exhausted all your final exports
And you’re haunted by all your final exploits
By your saviours, screaming danger, screaming danger
Favours, asked from you, never returned
You’ve ruined all your vital functions
And you know now, this is not the punch line
When you’re drowning, in your own sorrows and time
You’re falling, from the hands of fate and now you’re
Crawling, too much hate to save you from your downfall

Sing him a lullaby
Maybe he will find a home in sleep
Track Name: Deserve
You don’t deserve my attention
You don’t deserve my time
You don’t deserve my promise
And you don’t deserve my rhyme

You don’t deserve my patience
You don’t deserve my trust
You don’t deserve my honesty
You don’t deserve my love

You don’t deserve my hello when I’m walking through that door
And you don’t deserve my kindness when I’m lying on that floor
You don’t deserve my forgiveness when you’re on your knees with guilt
You don’t deserve my family in this home I’ve built

And I will go on fighting
You won’t, no you won’t
Bring me down

You don’t deserve my attention
You don’t deserve my time
You don’t deserve my promise
And you don’t deserve my rhyme

You don’t deserve my patience
You don’t deserve my trust
You don’t deserve my honesty
You don’t deserve my love
Track Name: Body's Limitations
Breathe in
Close your eyes
This is what being alive feels like

Churning heart
Burning lungs
You were never meant to leave the ground

False hope fills your veins
Along with what blood remains
At least you know your demon's face

Breathe in
Close your eyes
This is what being alive feels like

Breathe in
Close your eyes
This is what being alive feels like

I'm alive but I have lost my life
My body's limitations will be gone in time

I'm fine

I will not surrender

I've had to live my life in fear
But no more, no more
I've had to live my life in fear
But no more, no more
I've had to live my life in fear
But no more, no more

Because I am more than this
Track Name: Someone Lost
She’s seeped in like poison
Contorting you
And we hang like debris in the ruins
You’re not the friend I knew

The world lights up when you smile, why can’t you?
Because as long as you’re happy, I’ll be too

And everything I did was for you
And I sabotaged myself all for you
And if you never speak to me again
Then you’ve lost a really bloody good friend

And I don’t care if I meant nothing to you
Just wake up and face the truth
With actions so spineless, can we just put this behind us?
Because despite this devastating strain, the glorious memories remain

The world lights up when you smile, why can’t you?
Because as long as you’re happy, I’ll be too

And everything I did was for you
And I sabotaged myself all for you
And if you never speak to me again
Then you’ve lost a really bloody good friend

Cast me out of your life, with someone else’s words as goodbye
She’s done a thousand things to break you and I didn’t even try
You said the worst part would be losing me, well now you have
And you can pretend you never meant it but you can’t take those words back
I can’t watch you destroy yourself and claim I’m to blame
You can hate me and hurt me but I will never do the same
This is my goodbye, and it’s such a shame

I would do anything to have you back again
