Track Name: Coexist
Holding onto feelings that just make you sad
Holding onto evidence that I didn’t know I had
For all the reasons that I can’t explain
Holding onto everything that makes me lose my head
For all the lies that you told to me
I’ve made them all so simple so that I can be happy
For all the reasons that I can’t explain
I look past what is in my head

To Coexist

Holding on to lies because you said they’re true
Getting rid of thoughts that make me think less of you
For all the reasons that I can’t explain
Holding onto everything that makes me lose my head
For all the times that you fled to me
With all your little issues that made it hard to read
With all of the signs that I’ve tucked inside
I look past what is in my head

To Coexist

Coexist
It’s the pain, it’s fine, I know I’m lying
I cannot resist
To Coexist

Holding on to lies because you said they’re true
Getting rid of thoughts that make me think less of you
For all the reasons that I can’t explain
Holding onto everything that makes me lose my head
For all the times that you fled to me
With all your little issues that made it hard to read
With all of the signs that I’ve tucked inside
I look past what is in my head

Coexist
It’s the pain, it’s fine, I know I’m lying
I cannot resist
To Coexist
Coexist
It’s the pain, it’s fine, I know I’m lying
I cannot resist
To Coexist
Track Name: Summer Said
She said, I won’t give your heart away
She said, no, because it’s mine
She said, we walk this nightmare hand in hand, don’t leave me for someone else
She said, I won’t give your heart away, your heart

She said, I won’t give your heart away like a loaded gun
She said, I won’t give your heart away, your heart

She said, it is just like night and day
She said, no I won’t be fine
She said, we walk this nightmare hand in hand, don’t leave me for someone else
She said, I won’t give your heart away, your heart

She said, I won’t give your heart away like a loaded gun
She said, I won’t give your heart away, your heart
She said…
She said…
She said… Your heart away, your heart

She said, please wait, I’m lost and lonely
If only we’d had the time
She can’t be waiting on me only
If only we’d had the time

She said, I won’t give your heart away like a loaded gun
She said, I won’t give your heart away, your heart
She said…
She said…
She said… Your heart away, your heart
Track Name: When You're Around
I have a weight, so large; I can’t begin to lift it
I want to move so fast, but it is chaining me down
My body wants to walk away
My body needs to run away
I have to lift or pull or push it any way I can
Or my chance will leave with all the fight I ever had
So, that’s it, my mind is made
I see clearly

No time to waste, I’ve freed the chains and now I’m standing tall
But can’t seem to shake the feel that I’m against a wall
And I could still walk away
My body needs to run away
I am so close, I see, I hear, I taste it even
You’re standing there, alone, quick check to see I’m breathing
Now it’s too late to walk away
I see clearly

It’s the time it takes
For me to make mistakes
When you’re around, around
It’s feels like life or death
I’ll never catch my breath
When you’re around, around
I want to take you home

I have a weight, so large; I can’t begin to lift it
I want to move so fast, but it is chaining me down
My body wants to walk away
My body needs to run away
I have to lift or pull or push it any way I can
Or my chance will leave with all the fight I ever had
So, that’s it, my mind is made
I see clearly

It’s the time it takes
For me to make mistakes
When you’re around, around
It’s feels like life or death
I’ll never catch my breath
When you’re around, around
I want to take you home

I’ve got this weight that I can’t lift
It’s chained to me; I’m stuck with it
I take a breath so I can live
It is the last I have to give

It’s the time it takes
For me to make mistakes
When you’re around, around
It’s feels like life or death
I’ll never catch my breath
When you’re around, around
I want to take you home
Track Name: Something New
We lived our lives running in slow motion
All they ever saw was a silhouette
We showed them all just how we feel
They look at us and think we’re so surreal

Well we’re not scared of what doesn’t makes sense
No, it’s all just something new
We live our lives ‘cause it’s all that we want to do

We view the world how we want to see
No one tells us how it’s got to be
Live our lives running to the edge
Do we jump or do we fall instead

Well we’re not scared of what doesn’t makes sense
No, it’s all just something new
We live our lives ‘cause it’s all that we want to do

Live up everyday
Be the kind of person that you want to
Savor every way
You see all the world and not how they do
Never take away
Anything you have inside, that’s for you
Never take away
No, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, yeah-yeah-yeah
Track Name: Mind Palace
City skyline
With a view so clear
The night reveals this place
It shines so bright here
And commotion is dimmer
The night reveals this place

I keep this place to myself
It is just mine and mine only
It’s all that’s keeping me sane

It’s my only
Place to be there for
All the things that can’t wait
I see the stars here
They explode as they shimmer
The night reveals this place

I keep this place to myself
It is just mine and mine only
It’s all that’s keeping me sane
I keep this place to myself
It’s in my mind that I’ve held
The night reveals this place

This world I’ve made can’t be explained
I get the chance, the chance to live again
Space and time can mold like clay
I get my chance, my chance to live again

I keep this place to myself
It is just mine and mine only
It’s all that’s keeping me sane
I keep this place to myself
It’s in my mind that I’ve held
The night reveals this place
