Lost 03:17
starting off with a problem no one knows how to solve making plans and forgetting friendships we'll just wait and revolve we’ve got nowhere else to go at least we know where we are we’ve got nowhere else to go at least we can’t get lost now we're making connections lines that lead to the source we're taking stock of the failing systems that finally ran their course we’ve got nowhere else to go at least we know where we are we’ve got nowhere else to go at least we can’t get lost we’ve got nowhere else to go at least we know where we are we’ve got nowhere else to go at least we can’t get lost

Dead Inside 02:49
if you're lost and all alone don't settle in allow yourself a breath then bury it down within if you're empty and confused just push them away allow yourself a breath then just give up today waking up frustrated in this vessel i created every day’s a fight, i can never sleep at night losing interest in the person that i’ve always been i cannot hide how much i feel dead inside if you're lost and all alone don't settle in allow yourself a breath then bury it down within if you're empty and confused just push them away allow yourself a breath then just give up today waking up frustrated in this vessel i created every day’s a fight, i can never sleep at night losing interest in the person that I’ve always been i cannot hide how much i feel dead inside i cannot hide how much i feel dead inside

The Sea 01:49
wake up to sounds of laughter suffering in my sleep collapsed on the concealed comfort of letting go and sinking deep i venture out on the sea again no time to question why and when i venture out on the sea again to catch the beast and tame it with my pen in a tempest of color and thought reseeding a dying plain forgotten and fully unfocused when only the ashes remain i venture out on the sea again no time to question the why and when i venture out on the sea again to catch the beast and tame it with my pen i venture out on the sea again no time to question the why and when i venture out on the sea again to catch the beast and tame it with my pen
