Track Name: Split Screens
A different make you complicate
Things I try to initiate
I rake the leaves to clear the ground

Just like weeds you bury me
Replant yourself spreading more seeds
Iit's not too hard to break my stem

Going on a separate ways
Things have passed they're not the same
Time is sure to get us by
It's not you I know I know its my...

Pending clauses cloud my mind
Connect the dots in the wrong line
A beaten path I'd rather skip

Sticks and stones may weigh my head
Raw and exposed you're breaking my back
Hypothesize to ground my trip

Going on a separate ways
Things have passed they're not the same
Time is sure to get us by
It's not you I know it's my...

I know our reasons are the same
I know our reasons are the same
I know our reasons are the same
I know our reasons are the same

(I know our reasons)
(are the same)
(they are the same)

I know our reasons are the same.

Lyrics by Alexandra Fisher and Joseph Holland
Track Name: Wake Me Up
It's almost time
The moon is sitting on stand-by
Orange hues
Bring me a different view
Than before

The shoe has never fit so right
It's something that's been so undefined to me
Just put me in overtime
Just help me get these
Laces untied

So wake
Me up now
I wanna feel everything
So wake
Me up now
I wanna feel so complete

I'm now unleashed
From the web than spun me
The aftermath
Hurts much less than I would have guessed

Just tear away these sheets
That's been confining me
This dream that seemed complete
Well its a trap that's
Haunted me

So wake
Me up now
I wanna feel everything
So wake
Me up now
I wanna feel so complete
Track Name: Visions
I had a vision
Of black horses gliding by
One stopped in my shadow
And breathed frost into my eye

I can't wait for winter
So anxious for fall
And when springtime come around
I won't need this at all

Wait first in line
Or your vision
Won't last this time

Speak now or hold your breath
I've been anxiously waiting for something to happen next

I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready

I'm ready
I'm ready
I'm ready

And I want it
And I want it
And I want it
And I want it

clear
small
space
enwrap me in
clear
small
space
enwrap me in
clear small space

I’m ready
I’m ready
I’m ready

I’m ready
I’m ready
I’m ready

And I want it
And I want it
And I want it
And I want it

Back
Back
Back
To me…

Lyrics by: Alexandra Fisher
Track Name: Traveling Song
You got me talking in my sleep.
I made you weak in the knees.
Sometimes these things change;
Or sometimes we're afraid.

I never thought I'd need another reason,
I never thought I'd need another dream.
I need to move somewhere near the ocean.
I need to move somewhere I can breath.
Close to you.

I've never been so full of hope,
And scared at the same time.

(Alex)
I'm confused about your new approach.
I guess for now your smile will suffice

(Joe)
I never thought I'd need another reason,
I never thought I'd need another dream.
I need to move somewhere near the ocean.
I need to move somewhere I can breath.
Close to you.

(Alex)
Your tide was sure to sweep me in.
I won't forget how it happened.
The moon, the glimmer in my eye.
Why are goodbyes so hard this time?

(Joe)
I never thought I'd need another reason,
I never thought I'd need another dream.
I need to move somewhere near the ocean.
I need to move somewhere I can breath.
Close to you.

Lyrics by Joseph Holland (Alex wrote her verses)
Track Name: Falling Apart
She's out of my head now.
I did what I could do to forget.
It came without warning.
She took all she could, and left the door -
wide open.

She's out of my head now.
I did what I had to, to forget.
It's taking a while now;
things were easier in my head.

From the only one,
who shared my point of view,
From the only one,
who felt out of tune.

She's out of my head now.
I did all I could do to forget.
It never happened.
It never happened.

I try,
For the only thing
I could do.
For us both
and our safety
I tried,
tried to forget.

I'm falling apart,
I'm falling apart.

Lyrics and Music by Joseph Holland
Track Name: Your Mistake
More often than not
I’m ready to let
You in

It’s the price I pay
For being
Open

My thoughts are you
Awake me from dreams
They're nightmares

Get a grip you say
But everything changed in the
Wrong way

Break down
Break down

You want a clean break
I just can’t take it
But now it’s too late
I’m your mistake

Unbalanced weight
Controls every
Aspect

Who am I to say
That playing a game’s
The best bet

Your shadow
It follows
Me

You left.
What’s left?

Break down
Break down

You want a clean break
I just can’t take it
But now it’s too late
I’m your mistake

It’s too late to slow it down
It’s too late to slow it down
It’s too late to slow it down
It’s too late Its too late
Its too late Its too late

Its too late its too late
I am all yours
Take me as you are

At the bottom of your hands
The bottom of your hands
I’ll fix you up
I’ll fix you up

Lyrics: Alexandra Fisher
