Track Name: rose
I've been going asleep half-past morning
Waking up shaking-- hallucinating
Is it you is it you
By my bedpost staring right through?
I was never like this, you were forced into my life
Picked me up and threw me out I didn't put up a fight
It's me it's me
A devil toying with third degree

Well you planted a seed in me but it won't grow
And all that's coming up is weeds
I'm a rose in your garden, it's so full of snakes
And you're my only god-given mistake

Oh oh oh

You've got me paralyzed and I'm so scared
I'm gasping for breath, why won't you let me up for air?
It's you it's you
Pointing your finger passing on the blues
I'd break it off right then and there
But it's just another sedated nightmare
It's me it's me
And when did my dreams become 3D

You planted a seed in me but it won't grow
Now all that's coming up is weeds
I'm a rose in your garden it's so full of snakes
And you're my only god-given mistake

Oh oh oh

When did you start your screaming?
My ears won't stop their ringing
I'm going crazy all for you baby
Is my mind enough for you?
When did the music turn into
A monster one or two?
I'm going crazy all for you baby
Is my mind enough for you?

Well you planted a seed in me but it won't grow
Now all that's coming up is weeds
I'm a rose in your garden it's so full of snakes
And you're my only god-given mistake

Oh oh oh

You're a mistake
Track Name: dance
Go park your car on the side of the road
Or at least drive around with no place to go
I like you best when we don't have a destination
Not leaving it up to chance but up to temptation
Of course I'd love for you to stick around
Or at least leave me better than what you found

But time's ticking fast and I'd like
For you to slow down, look me in the eye
And just

Dance
Or hold my hand
I don't care if it's one two three
Days months weeks years
Let's leave it to chance
I just wanna dance

I look better in your shirts than I ever have mine
I feel high when I'm with you past my second glass of wine
And I'm a sucker for the time we spend just you and me
Running high on adrenaline and low on gasoline

But time's ticking fast and I'd like
For you to slow and think twice
And just

Dance
Or hold my hand
I don't care if it's one two three
Days months weeks years
Let's leave it to chance
I just wanna dance

It's a long road that we're traveling on
And it's a strong heart we're counting on
None of my faith is quite gone
And I'd love for you to tag along

But time's ticking fast and I'd like
For you to slow down and think twice
And just

Dance
And hold my hand
I don't care if it's one two three
Days months weeks years
Let's leave it to chance
I just wanna dance
Track Name: peach
You’re my go-to on a sunday at noon,
After church is done for the day,
And we both need somewhere
Where we don’t have to pray.
You’re the plane crash on a monday night
Reminding me that everyone has to die,
And I might not like being alive.

You’re the peach that I bite into
On a wednesday after school,
But you’re way too bitter to chew.
What kind of trouble did you get yourself into
When you grew?
And I’d love to say to you
That friends can break your heart too.

You’re the snake in my garden on a saturday,
Biting me out of nowhere,
And saying the only cure is a prayer.
You’re the feeling on a thursday telling me the only truth
Is no one will ever love me
The way you say you do.

You’re the peach that I bite into
On a wednesday after school
But you’re way too bitter to chew.
What kind of trouble did you get yourself into
When you grew?
And I’d love to say to you
That friends can break your heart too.

You’re every time that I’ve stayed home on a friday night,
Looking for answers up above,
And praying to the sky.
You’re my tuesday, my hardest day to survive,
And I might like life
Without you by my side.

You’re the peach that I bite into
On a wednesday after school,
But you’re way too bitter to chew.
What kind of trouble did you get yourself into
When you grew?
And I’d love to say to you
That friends can break your heart too.
Track Name: i don't know
I'm empty no matter where you find me
I'm lost beyond return
I'm wondering why you want me
Still listening to your silence
Don't tell me you're sorry
For all the mistakes you don't think you made
I'm wondering if you're happy
Still listening to your silence
You ask me

Why are you going so crazy?
I don't know
And why do you overthink everything?
I don't know I don't know

We're just changing into something
I don't want to be a part of
Oh can you hear me?
Still listening to your silence
You ask me

Why are you going so crazy?
I don't know
And why do you over think everything?
I don't know I don't know
Oh is this all worth anything?
I don't know
And do you still love me?
You don't know
Track Name: holy
We're the ones who cried wolf one too many times
You never wanted us here but we're still alive
We're the build a bridge and get over it
Jump off the side and drown for a crime that you didn't commit
Better get used to this fuss
Cause you're not getting rid of is

Oh oh oh I'm losing sight of me
When half my body's become the enemy
When your god up above gives you divine right to judge
Isn't that the least holy?
So won't you stop your torture spree

I can't believe all the light you stole out my bedroom window
I don't understand why who I am is who I talk to through my pillow

Oh oh oh I'm losing sight of me
When half my body's become the enemy
When your god up above gives you divine right to judge
Isn't that the least holy?
So won't you stop your torture spree

If there's a time and a place for everything
Why is the time and the place so much different for me
Trying to talk to you but your head's in space
Trying to steal back the love you'd confiscate x2

Oh oh oh I'm losing sight of me
When half my body's become the enemy
When your god up above gives your divine right to judge
Isn't that the least holy?
So won't you stop your torture spree
