Track Name: Outside Myself
It's like I'm drowning in shallow water
Because I have no strength to lift my head
It's likes there's a million tiny knives in my chest
It's like there's non existent hands around my neck
Constantly try to touch
Why does this happen to me?
Why should this happen to me ?

I tend to overthink everyday situations
Predicting there outcomes
Piece together what will and won't happen

It makes my heartbeat a million miles an hour
My eyes start to well
I feel like I'm outside myself

I feel like I'm outside myself
Looking in
But I can do nothing to help
I can do nothing to help
Nothing to help me

Close my eyes
Take a deep breath
Take a moment

It's like I'm drowning in shallow water
Because I have no strength to lift my head
It's likes there's a million tiny knives in my chest
It's like there's non existent hands around my neck
Constantly try to touch
Why does this happen to me?
Why should this happen to me ?

Close my eyes
Take a deep breath
Take a moment

I need to get away, away from it all
So I can be by myself
So I can take a deep breath
Breath in and breath out

I just need some time
To clear out my head
Think it all over and start it again
I want to feel normal like I fit in and shine
I'm outside myself
I'm overthinking my life
Track Name: Pulse
Everyday I wake up
With weight on my shoulders
With pressure on my chest
I get up, I give up

I have no purpose
No reason to be alive
The constant search for meaning is clouded by my eyes

Every second, every minute , everyday
It's exactly the same
I tell myself I'm okay

I know I worry , yeah I know I worry but

I am not okay
Unhappiness and loneliness
Only fuel the cause
An empty shell, a mannequin
Of the person I once was

I'm leading myself blind
From nothing to nowhere
With only the sound of my heartbeat
Letting me know I'm alive

My reflection is a stranger
Imperfection’s in my nature
Why do I put this pressure on myself?

Every second, every minute , everyday
It's exactly the same
I tell myself I'm okay

I know I worry , yeah I know I worry but

I am not okay
Unhappiness and loneliness
Only fuel the cause
An empty shell, a mannequin
Of the person I once was

I am not who you see
I am not who I'm supposed to be

I am not who you see
I am not who I'm supposed to be
No one knows me but myself
And I hate what “myself" is

No one knows me but myself
And I guess that's the way it'll stay
No smiling , just fade in the background

I just want to be okay

I am not okay
Track Name: Leak
I always thought I was strong enough on my own
Rely on no one but myself
I know I seem okay
But it's all an act
You'll never ask, I'll never tell
It was my secret

This isn't easy for me to say
I've never been one to talk
I keep it hidden away
Until it leaks from my eyes
When I'm all alone
I was so alone
It would get worse each and every day
I couldn't move
I couldn't eat
I was withering away
I didn't tell anyone
I felt so alone
I was so alone

It was never my intention
To push you all away
I thought I needed space
I just needed help
But I was too afraid to ask
Too afraid to let you in

I broke down
I was weak
I never felt like I was good enough
For people to care
For anyone to help me

I was so scared
You'd all think less of me

This isn't easy for me to say
I've never been one to talk
I keep it hidden away
Until it leaks from my eyes
When I'm all alone
I was so alone

It got worse each and every day
I couldn't move
I couldn't eat
I was withering away
I didn't tell anyone
I felt so alone
I was so alone

I was trying to blame anyone but myself
But the fault lies with me
It was me
It was always me
Why do I hate myself?
Track Name: Bundaberg
I was confused
I was scared I wasn't good enough for you
So I ran as far as a I could
But I couldn't run far enough

I hope you find someone
Who makes you as happy as you made me
But I know that won't happen for me
It won't happen for me
It won't happen for me

It hasn't always been easy
It hasn't always been okay
But we've been through everything
And my hearts stayed the same

I broke your heart
You broke mine back
I want to take it all back

I've done all I can
I can't lose you again
I don't know what to do
It's always been you

Please wait for me
Please wait for me
Please wait for me
Track Name: Breathing Space
I miss you so much it hurts
Track Name: Twelve
I always found it hard to believe
That you weren't here for me
I stuck by you because I loved you
And I thought that you loved me

Loved me..

The day you walked out
Without second thought
Was the hardest day of my life

You chose addiction and it broke my heart
What makes it better then me?

I fell sick I didn't tell you
It was too hard to say
Like father , like son
We pushed it away

I couldn't talk to you
We sat there in silence
And now that you're gone
I still have no guidance

I always found it hard to believe
That you weren't here for me
I stuck by you because I loved you
And I thought that you loved me

You weren't there
You were never there
You were never there
You were never there for me
You were never there for me
You were never there for me
