Track Name: Just Breathe
Home is not where it used to be
Faith is not what it used to mean to me
Even in the darkest dreams I find some clarity
This is who I am
This is who I need to be

When the ground falls out from under your feet
When your vices are too much - too much to defeat
Where will you go when all that you know comes unglued?
Where will you go when all that you know feels untrue to you?

If you ever feel alone, know that you have a home in me
And if you ever feel the weight of the choices that you made, just breathe
You can't be afraid to live your life dangerously
Afraid to be who you want to be
If you ever feel alone, know that you have a home in me

(Open your eyes)
There's a home behind all your fears and your lies
(Open your eyes)
There's a light burning bright in the darkest of nights
Open your eyes
Open your eyes

Where will you go when all that you know feels untrue to you?

If you ever feel alone, know that you have a home in me
And if you ever feel the weight of the choices that you made, just breathe
You can't be afraid to live your life dangerously
Afraid to be who you want to be
If you ever feel alone, know that you have a home in me
Track Name: Rise
I've gotta rise up and take what's mine
Before the light of my twenty-third year passes me by
No more - no more wasting time
The dawn of a new day is on the horizon line

Let go of every single notion you once knew
(Yeah let it go)
The only ones who make it always follow through
'Cuz you can't afford to live like this, honey
If you're afraid to fall
(Afraid to fall)
No you can't afford to dream like this, honey
With your back against the wall
(Back against the wall)

I wasted half my life just idling by
And it's killing me inside
It's killing me inside
That I wasted all this time wondering why
My poker face is showing
But I'm really only folding underneath

(Some of us just wanna be liberated)
So whatcha gonna do when your world stops turning?
All blame rests on you
Tomorrow will come as a bitter pill to swallow
You've got nothing left to lose
(Nothing left to lose)

I wasted half my life just idling by
And it's killing me inside
It's killing me inside
That I wasted all this time wondering why
My poker face is showing
But I'm really only folding underneath

(Some of us just wanna be liberated)

I've gotta rise up and take what's mine
Before the light of my twenty-third year passes me by
No more - no more wasting time
The dawn of a new day is on the horizon line

I'm folding underneath
I wasted all this time wondering why
My poker face is showing
But I'm really only folding underneath

We just wanna be
Just wanna be
We just wanna be liberated
Track Name: Lately
Too good to quit
Red lips and all that wit
But something in your eye
Screams out this isn't right
You whisper in my ear
Three words that I've come to fear
I'm playing with fire
No heart and all desire
Oh - what do you do when desperation finds you?
What do you do?
Whoa-oh
What do you do when desperation finds you?

Because lately it's been driving me crazy
My back's against the wall
I want love but not the fall
Can't stand to be lonely
So don't think that you own me
I just want you to hold me
Without questioning if you can have it all

Don't know your name
Who you are or who's to blame
'Cuz it feels so faceless
But fills the empty spaces
Been sleeping with strangers
Ignoring all the dangers
I might get burned if
There is a lesson to be learned
So what do you do when desperation finds you?
What do you do?
Whoa-oh what do you do when desperation finds you?

Because lately it's been driving me crazy
My back's against the wall
I want love but not the fall
Can't stand to be lonely
So don't think that you own me
I just want you to hold me
Without questioning if you can have it all

Slow down child
Don't let your love run wild
This kind of thing don't last
And it's much too fast so
Slow down child
Your love runs wild
When you're afraid
Of being alone

Lately it's been driving me crazy
My back's against the wall
I want love but not the fall
Can't stand to be lonely
So don't think that you own me
I just want you to hold me
Without questioning if you can have it all
No you can't have it all
Track Name: New Plateau
I just found out that I'm strong enough
To get up and walk away
The boy that you knew is not here today,
He's sorting out the mess he's made

And the only way out --
Through the tears and the doubt --
Is a road paved with loss and pain
So if I ever come around,
when I finally hit the ground
You'll know it when you hear the sound

Why do you stand in the line of fire
When you know it burns?
Why are you dreaming of a finish line
When there's much to learn --
So much left to learn?
You're giving it all away
For somebody else to know your pain,
But don't let go

You helped me back onto my feet
I let my failures swallow everything
Now there's no one to hold,
I'm on my own
Finding my way back home
And if I make it alone to a new plateau
Maybe you'll get why I had to go
'Cuz despite what I did
And all that was said,
It's better this way in the end
'Cuz all you ever do is weigh me down

Why do you stand in the line of fire
When you know it burns?
Why are you dreaming of a finish line
When there's much to learn --
So much left to learn?
You're giving it all away
For somebody else to know your pain,
But don't let go

You are much more than you think you are
You're stronger than you say you are
Even when you fall apart

But don't let go
