Track Name: Undertow
I can't seem to focus on anything anymore,
except for my crooked back and fucked up knees.
I spent so many years trying to justify a reason why you're gone and why I'm still fucking breathing.

As the seasons get colder
it's getting harder just to keep my head up high.
I am nothing just dying leaves on a dying tree in an empty cemetery.
So bring me back to the coast and let me fade into the sea.

I have nothing left to offer
This world has taken everything from me,
thrown me out to sea.
Picked apart and left for dead by humanity.

As the seasons get colder
it's getting harder just to keep my head up high.
I am nothing just dying leaves on a dying tree in an empty cemetery.

As I'm brought back to the shore,
I see your face in the waves just before they break
I'm reminded that nothing golden can stay,
and life so precious can be taken away.
I feel the burden of a life cut short drag me down.
I'm sick of fighting to break the surface now.
I will never see the shore.

I'm begging for water to fill my lungs .
Leave me be. Fade into the sea.
Track Name: Everlasting
As I look up towards the sky, see your face in the stars wondering if I’ve done enough? Do I make you proud?

What can I say? I'm not that strong. Sometimes I run away. What can I say? I'm not so strong. Sometimes I fall to my knees.

You will never break my will. You will never bring me down.

I am no longer afraid of the voices in my head. And I am no longer afraid to live deliberately.

I will not be left behind. I will leave my mark on mankind.
I will not be left behind.
Track Name: Alpine
I sat alone at the end of a cold cul de sac and watched as everyone I've ever loved gave up on me. Moving down the road while I stayed frozen to the street, leaving me far behind in a cold winters rain. My foundation is crumbling beneath my feet and I see no one around to pull me out.

I feel the sand slip through the cracks in the surface and the mist blow through my face. Clawing at my chest I'm desperate for just a single breath to pick myself up and lay you to rest.

I remember the night you left and the emptiness I felt in my chest when the sun came up the next morning, thinking the whole world should stop and mourn for the fallen girl who never made it home.

Now you’re gone and you aren’t ever coming home

But life goes on for everyone, everything, every heartbeat in perfect unison except the boy left behind in a cold wind wondering where is sister might be, not able to grasp the finality of death.

Now he has to move one leaving himself behind and he doesn’t know if he can mend, but he will strive to be okay again.

Get up, rise from your knees.
Track Name: Horizon
I am not ashamed
Of where I've been or the time I've spent down on my knees. Beaten, bloody, and black and blue. Left for dead in the open ocean, but I have the strength to keep on fighting.

I will not be dragged down anymore. Calmer waters are just ahead and I will live, I will live to see the sun rise.

When I don't think I can make it. This heart of stone has seen too much, I'll pick myself up off my bony knees. I'll keep on fighting.

If I can make it through the storm, I know calmer weather is in store. If I can make it through the night, I will live to see the sun rise.

As the sun washes over me and sea air comes and fills these lungs and makes them new. Take this beaten broken down body of mine and give it life once more. I am not ashamed to admit that I am broken and lost, so please pull me from my knees cause you are all I need to keep on going and though I may fall, I will rise again.

Rise again

We will never be afraid to stand up and face the world. Never leave behind the ones who keep you warm at night.

I will not be afraid to stand up and face the day. Scrape my knees, rise and keep on moving.
